THE CONCEPT OF ECOLOGY IN AYURVEDA
Dr. Ashwini Patil*
Ayurveda, the science of life, is from time immemorial has laid more emphasis on Prakriti, Purusha, Srshti, Desha, Kala, Rutu & its relation with human beings. The interdependency of loka and purusha is wisely explained by Charakacharya. The fundamental principles laid down in Ayurveda are based on Panchamahabhuta concept which says that the shareera, the dravya and the entire existing materials are made out of it. This marks the relation of Ayurveda with nature which aims at prevention of disease rather than cure, by adopting healthy regimens. The healthy regimens include both diet and activities.
