Charak Samhita Live Edition

The Definitive Online Edition of Ayurveda's Core Treatise on Healthcare with 293 articles

Charak Samhita is Ayurveda’s definitive treatise and the most referenced text by students, scholars, teachers, physicians and researchers. It has the unique distinction of being the only text available worldwide on restorative science. It emphasizes on the promotion of health and prevention of disease as the actual solution for controlling diseases, which is especially relevant in modern times. Further, it also seriously dwells upon the concept of healthy aging and longevity, as described in Swastha Chatushka and Rasayana chapters.

The objective of this project is to provide updated edition of Charak Samhita. It includes comprehensive English translation, Fundamental inferences(Tattva Vimarsha) from each of its 120 Adhyaya(chapters) across eight sections, as well as Clinical/applied inferences(Vidhi Vimarsha).

This is a collaborative platform to contribute and learn basics of healthcare management system in Ayurveda. We invite healthcare providers to contribute this body of knowledge updating content. Read more .....

Vision and Mission

Conventional medicine or allopathic medicine has, over the past few decades, made significant strides in the area of disease management. However, in spite of the significant breakthroughs that it has witnessed, modern medicine continues to be primarily an “offense strategy” for managing ailments. It does not stress upon disease prevention because the etiology of chronic diseases is unknown. In contrast to this, Ayurveda (Knowledge of Life) system primarily utilizes the “defence strategy” in health management- as detailed and described in the treatise. Ayurveda prescribes a holistic approach towards managing health, and diseases and is very pertinent in today’s world. However, the treatise in its existing form needs to be updated in today’s context, and for a wider audience. Realizing this critical need, Charak Samhita New Wiki Edition and Update initiative was conceptualized in 2013. Read more..
