BAMS Course Online Application Admission Forms
Before we start with the Ayurvedic Doctors Course – BAMS Course, let’s understand what is Ayurveda?
The word Ayurveda is formed by combing two Sanskrit words first “AYU” and “VEDA”. The first word “AYU” means life and the second word “VEDA” means Science or Knowledge. Therefore, Ayurveda means the “science of life”. Some people say it’s a Science that provides life or improves life.
Do you know how old is this science!!! You will be surprised to know it almost dates back to the 4th century.
History of Ayurveda:
Maharishi Charaka who is believed to be a principal contributor to Ayurveda defined it as “That science which deals with advantage and disadvantage as well as happy and unhappy states of life along with what is good and bad for life, its measurement and the life itself (Charaka Sutra 1 – 4)“
Do you know Maharishi Charaka studied the human body and its various organs and documented in a form what is known as “Charaka Samhita”. Some believe it is documented around the 4th Century i.e., it was written …years ago.
It contains 120 adhyayas (chapters) and is divided into 8 parts, with 12000 shlokas and a description of 2,000 medicines.
