Adhibhautika In Ayurveda

Adhibhautika in Ayurveda pertains to fragile or mortal physical beings. It can be defined in another way, too, Adhi means ‘based in’ and bhautika means ‘physical’ or related to mortal or fragile beings. Therefore, Adhibhautika is used to mean, in the context of disease and sickness, those ailments that have a physical or bodily cause. The ‘triad of pains’ (tapatraya), as given by Sushruta in his Samhita, refers to hardships in worldly life; it denotes pain in philosophy and in Ayurveda. Adhibhautika diseases are of two kinds, namely, traumatic and seasonal – sanghatabalapravritta and kalabalapravritta.

Cunning Philosophy Of Minister Kanika In Mahabharata

Kanika was a cunning minister of Dhritarashtra in the Mahabharata. His political philosophy earned the nickname Kanika Kuta Niti. Here are some cunning philosophies of Kanika from Adi Parva 139 of Mahabharata. Threaten the timid. Bow before the strong. Bribe the greedy. Kill the enemy if he were your son, friend, brother, father or preceptor. This is the royal path to success (Adi Parva 139.50-12). Ever have your punishing hand raised; that alone will keep your opponent on tenterhooks. Thus, get things done by others through fear of punishment (Adi Parva 139 Verse 7). Never disregard an enemy even if he be weak. Note that even a spark of fire will burn down a forest with external help like the wind. Cut down your enemy, first and foremost cut off his root, and then only his allies, his party and others. When the base has been cut, all others would have been done for. How can branches grow in a tree when the root has been cut? Carry the enemy on your shoulder when times are ad
