Ayurveda is a Vedic science. The aim of Vedanta is to educate people that, one supreme force itself manifests in diverse forms. That divine self is in all beings. This spark of light helps to transfer ordinary selfish activity into glowing unity to build up a sound society.

Ayurveda a vedic science is based on "Sankhya Shastra". An ancient scientist Kapila muni has described that the elementary matter as Prakrati with three forces – Satva, Raja and Tama, with the spark of "Purusha" is the dynamic base of the cosmic matrix. That opens twenty four channels as the base. These are the elementary. Pulsating units forming a "Person". These units work as panchamahabhuta in physical level and chetana is the base of psycho intellectual levels. Satva, Raja and Tama exist as psycho intellectual forces, through which panchamahabhuta are born. Thus they are extended architectural base of a person, which are connected and organized as one unit by Vayu, the living force.

The living force, the supreme power is the light in the Sun and the thermal source fertilizes the Earth and as a Moon light which supplies food value to the kingdom with inertia binds the energy. It is the warmth of the body that presides over the assimilation of food within the body and supervises the process of life transactions with the World outside. That is the same light that works as an intellect, Eternal principle thus expresses itself as the phenomenal powers. It is the warmth of living beings, metabolism creates the body heat generates energy through food, so long as life is pulsating.

These elementary factors are termed as dosha. The living Prana or Chetanadhatu is Vayu. Solar force as Pitta and Lunar force as Kapila. They are termed as dosha. Because they may turn into toxic states and may injure the tissues and organs. To emphasise this state they are termed as dosha. They exist in subtle and gross forms. They form the architecture as dhatu and work through them. Their healthy relationship with the tissues and organs in a specific way is termed as doshagati as "kostha, shakha and marmasthi sandhi gati". The specific relation in pathological progress is termed as "Roga-Marga".

The science of life which directs the derangements causing diseases not only at tissue levels or molecular levels. But also in energy levels. This can be visualized at energy levels through clinical approach.

The external and internal energy channels are linked through the Vayu. In the external world the herbs and minerals are also the products of Solar energy. Vayu is atomic base of the internal and external world. Which presents as "Guna" or twenty active principles. They exist as dosha in internal system. Their balance is health, disturbance is disease. The affinity of noxious dosha towards tissues and organs manifesting disease, a pathological progress is "Roga-Marga". This progress can be visualized at submolecular or energy levels and can be corrected through the six therapies based on "Twenty Guna"

Thus one can maintain health or treat diseases with the help of applied medicine.

About the Book

The subject Roga-Marga indicates the relationship between different tissues and organs in an unique way morbid state of dosa (toxin) motivates in a specific way with specific affinity towards the selected tissues and organs. This concept is traced in ancient Ayurvedic books, this is an objective approach of ancient scientists helping for the clinical practice. The subject is vast but it is traced in short. Present day students cannot study and learn the vast subject in a time bound period. So I have made an attempt to highlight its importance in clinical practice. Some of the important sanskrita shloka are presented in picture forms. This book highlights the summaries of research works based on the concept.

This book will help the students, Ayurvedic practitioners and clinical Ayurvedic researches.

About the Author

I am Dr. Sou. Achala Bhimsen Kulkarni, A.V.P. Ph. D. Ayurvedic Medicine from Pune University, Maharashtra, India. I was working in an Ayurvedic college teaching Kaya-Chikitsa and Chakra Samhita. I was a guide for M.D. – Kayachikitsa and Samhita. Once I attended a conference on heart diseases. A question was asked in that conference "Roga-Marga" is a concept traced in text books of ancient Samhitas. Here the remote organs vital organs – Heart brain kidneys and joints etc. Present clinical practice also manifests with the multiple organ involvement of these organs. So I was impressed with that subject and worked on the subject for my Ph. D. 98 patients were studied in a specific format. This work helped me a lot for my clinical practice. So my students were demanding to share my experience hence I tried this work. I hope this will help the students. This is a vast subject, multiplication will certainly help the students.
