Exploring Ancient Ayurvedic Wisdom: Concept of Water in Health and Hygiene

Dr. Dilip Kr. Goswami


Abstract: This article delves into the profound significance of water as an essential gift of nature and its pivotal role in daily human life. Comparing the priorities of air, water and food, water emerges as an unavoidable necessity, second only to air. The abundance of water sources, while indispensable, also holds the potential to be a source of diseases. Thus, ensuring the judicious and quality-based utilization of water for both internal and external purposes becomes imperative. Scientific studies and international protocols for water testing and disease identification are in place. Remarkably, ancient human societies, including the wisdom of scholars like Charaka, Susruta and Bagbhata have long recognized the importance of water for various aspects of life. This article embarks on a discussion of their perspectives on water, encompassing sources, quality assessment, usage and criteria for rejection. By rekindling ancient Ayurvedic insights, this effort aims to shed light on the invaluable lessons regarding water from our ancestors and the timeless teachings of nature.


Keywords: water, gift of the nature, ancient human society, Charaka, Susruta and Bagbhata
