Daily and Seasonal Routines

Updated: May 27, 2020

The authentic ayurvedic texts like Charak Samhita and Ashtang Sangraha describe dincharya ( daily routine ) , rutucharya ( seasonal routine ) and sada-vritta ( rules to follow for moral behaviour ) in great detail. Some of the descriptions on above topics might seem outdated today, as these texts were written more than five thousand years ago. If you translate that description in today's context, you will realise that our experts were teaching us to have a holistic view towards well-being of patients. They were not only looking at the symptoms of diseases but also teaching us a preventative aspects of ayurveda. Many activities suggested in sada-vritta teach us gratitude , compassion and mindfulness. Our ancient ayurvedic experts like Charak and Vagbhata had thought about the broad definition of the health which includes our physical, mental, emotional, spiritual and social well-being.
