Panchabhoutic Siddhanta

To understand physiology, pathology and pharmacokinetics of ayurvedic therapeutics the concept of panchabhoutic siddanth is of vital importance.

Phrithwi, Aapa, Teja, Vayu and Akasha are the five (Pancha) basic elements that are the constituents of all living matter. Together these five are called Panchamahabhoota.



Purusha

The "Soul" lives in the body so it is considered as purusha, as anyone who live in this home i.e. body is called purusha. In ayurveda the body has no meaning without purusha (soul). Whole ayurveda is compiled for the betterment of karma purusha and thus it holds great importance in ayurveda.
