Ayurvedic classics have been written by the using Tantrayukti by removing Tantradosha (Defects in treatise) and by applying Tantraguna (Qualities of a good treatise). The main utility of Tantrayukti is to amplify and enlighten the readers with the intended meaning mentioned in the Tantras which can be achieved through amplification of the sentences and by enlightening the meaning of the sentences. A careful analysis of Ayurveda treatises reveals that there is a comprehensive approach regarding research. Tantrayukti is the methodology or technique or systemic approach of studying a science to interpret its correct unambiguous meaning for its practical application, these age-old learning tools can be used by modern researchers especially in literary, fundamental, clinical and experimental research fields as it helps in expansion and enlightenment of hidden meanings between the lines.
