Around 10 days remaining, a large number of Ayurveda practitioners and students have shown interest in attending the largest class of Charak Samhita being organized by Nasya in association with the international book of records (IBR) and Vijnana Bharati on may 26th at New Delhi. It is first of its kind event that AIMS to emphasize the relevance of Charak and his classical Samhita texts for becoming better Ayurveda practitioners.
Embarking on their career journey, young Ayurveda students as well as practitioners often sideline the importance of original and classical texts and mostly study textbooks. This denies them the chance to develop intuitive and comprehensive insights into this age-old and time-proven health science in a substantial way. Nasya IBR largest Charak class of Charak event is an attempt to enthuse the right spirit in approaching Ayurveda with an scholarly aptitude.Nirogstreet spoke to Shri A. Jayakumar, secretary general, Vijnana Bharati for his views on this Nasya IBR event. He told Nirogstreet that this is a necessary step toward boosting the confidence of Ayurveda students by showing them the right direction. “Charak’s teachings have been relevant and highly important for over 3,500 years. Our foremost aim is to build an enlightened Ayurveda community that understands well how to resolve the current health crises of the modern society in a holistic and complete manner. We have to address the growing diffidence in young Ayurveda pass-outs and the best way to do it is by helping them start at the right place,” he said.“The largest class of Charak Samhita will be monitored by the international book of records, an organization that takes note of events of record-breaking excellence. It is a great moment for all the practitioners and students to participate and be part of the phenomenal event which will be earmarked in the history of Ayurveda as a significant day. The class will be followed by lectures by some of the eminent Vaidyas. Many dignitaries and officials, including the honorable secretary, ministry of ayush, will grace the event with their presence. It is indeed a day not to miss at all. I’d urge all the students and practitioners to attend the largest Charak class and make it so successful that reading classical texts becomes a daily habit for every Ayurveda person in this country. This day will go down in history as a new beginning,” Shri Jayakumar" added.
Nasya ibr event for the largest class of Charak Samhita is expected to be attended by thousands of Ayurveda students and practitioners. The event will take place at Dilli Haat, Janakpuri from 10 a.m. till 5 p.m. registrations can be done at the Nasya website. Most of the seats are already filled, so those students and practitioners who haven’t registered yet, should hurry up.
Just around two weeks remaining, registration for the largest class of charak samhita is going on in full swing. This Nasya Event to be held on 26th may in association with the international book of records (IBR) and Vijnana Bharati has gained a lot of buzz in the Ayurveda community since the time the registrations opened in mid-april.
The largest class of Charak Samhita is a unique attempt by Nasya to revive the teacher-disciple tradition and emphasize on the importance of studying the classical texts besides the prescribed textbooks. Of late, Ayurveda students have been more inclined toward reading the curriculum books for their studies and a trend like this has made them more and more distant from understanding the vast wisdom hidden in the original texts. Such an event will bring the focus back to the ancient texts which contain a brobdingnagian amount of knowledge, a good proportion of which is lost in translations and interpretations otherwise.
Nirogstreet reached out to Dr. Prashant Tiwari, a devoted Ayurveda practitioner and national coordinator, Nasya, for his views on the upcoming IBR event. He stressed upon the need for such an exercise that was long due for the students as well as the practitioners of Ayurveda in order to understand this age-old health science in a comprehensive and integral way. “Studying Ayurveda does not just mean learning the theories and postulates. Rather it requires you to develop insights toward integral inferences. Samhitas are the original classical texts and every student must read it again and again in order to hone their comprehension and expertise. Reading Samhitas should be as regular as practising Ayurveda. The more you study it, the more you enrich your understanding,” he said.
“Now the real question is, how many Ayurvedists are going to attend this class on may 26th? Students of Ayurveda have to be self-aware and proactive about this event. As Nasya president, Dr. Jangid, wrote some days back, we need to develop faith in Ayurveda. This can only be attained by revisiting our original literature and sources, such as the Samhitas. Charak Samhita is the most important subject or text in entire Ayurveda and its relevance is applicable in all manners of life. Reading Charak builds a perspective through which students and practitioners can co-relate the texts in a practical way. It is the very aim of Nasya to bring confidence in students and create an interest so that they can actively lead themselves in the right direction,” Dr. Tiwari further told Nirogstreet.
International book of records largest class of Charak has seen a great response so far and close to 1,000 Vaidyas and students have registered for the event in the past couple of weeks. With just a few days remaining, more Ayurvedists are expected to enroll as the availability fills up to the maximum capacity.
Recounting his student life, Dr, Tiwari remarked that he learned a great deal from the classical Ayurveda texts during his early Ayurveda days. He said that he found it so impressive that the Sthanas and diseases explained by Charak has exact proceedings in daily life. “When I started reading the texts, I applied them directly in life and got really positive results. Charak also tells a lot about how you can improvise your personality and raise the quality of your life. At the clinic too, I give lectures on adopting Charak Sutras and using them for a healthy and happy life. There can be so many take aways and we have been continuously inferring multiple formulations from the texts, applying them in different areas, such as pharmacy. Mahakashay is one example of the same.”
“Charak is relevant in so many things, whether it is personal issues, finance, health, or anything else. It has in fact a trikaal, timeless ring to it, lest we forget to take notice. We have been doing many events keeping all these points in mind, from Charak Chintan to day to day Ayurveda series, etc. Collaboration of IBR will ensure the propagation of our objectives behind the event to all far and wide. We will take inputs from the participants at the IBR event and in coming times we might call our representation in the 22 states to organize a national level webinar where even far more people can connect and participate in another such event,” Dr. Tiwari added.
The registration for the ibr largest class of charak can be done on the Nasya website.

It is from the classic texts that the whole science of Ayurveda has been derived. National Ayurveda students & youth association (Nasya) is organizing a special event in collaboration with Vijnana Bharati to showcase the importance of these texts for every Ayurveda student and doctor, as well as for the people. On may 26th, next month, the event named international book of records for the largest class of charak samhita will be held at the Janakpuri Dilli Haat in New Delhi. It will be a unique and beholding day in the history of Ayurveda education as the traditional classroom will move to the venue for a day and Ayurveda experts will read and explain the texts as they do during their lecture class. Many eminent dignitaries and Ayurveda personalities are expected to attend this Ayurveda IBR event.Recognizing the significance of this event, Nirogstreet approached prof. (dr.) k. s. dhiman, director general, ccras, for his comments. He expressed happiness that such an event is taking place. “A lot of interesting work is being done in elevating Ayurveda education and quality by the government organizations under the ministry of Ayush. In addition to that, some non-government organizations are actively working to promote awareness and understanding about everything Ayurveda. In this direction, Nasya has been taking exemplary initiatives and this lecture-and-discussion event is another one of those good steps. International book of records for the largest class of Charak Samhita is indeed a relevant and much needed exercise, so that students, practitioners, and society could recall the medical wisdom and science of this age-old medicine system. Imagine over 1,000 practitioners and students attending the event, listening to experts reading the great texts from the Samhita. Then there are lectures by some of the renowned Vaidyas from across the country, followed by open discussions. This is a brilliant concept to remind, motivate, and bring the community together so that the society benefits in a large way. CCRAS supports this event heartily”, he said.IBR for the largest class of Charak Samhita is scheduled toward the weekend, i.e., Saturday. It will be easier for everyone to take some time out of their busy schedules. It will be a unique and enlightening learning and sharing experience of its kind. Presence of international book of records makes it just more historic. Huge participation of Ayurveda community and people in general is expected at the event.“It is imperative for the students and practitioners not to get disconnected from the original texts and read them as much as they can. It will shape their understanding of Ayurveda just better and sprout new insights. The idea is also to sensitize the society through this event about the threat of lifestyle problems and non-communicable diseases, something that is becoming an epidemic. Ayurveda is the authentic health science that can help people stay away from such problems. It has a strong concept of prevention, as laid down in the classical texts: ‘Swaasthasya Swaasthya Rakshnam’. Practitioners and students should attend this event in large numbers.”, Prof. Dhiman added.Registrations and queries related to the International Book Of Records for the largest class of Charak Samhita can be checked at Nasya India’s website.
they say the way to ones heart goes through ones stomach. ayurveda say the way to your brain is through your nose!!!…… for the thousands of year ago the ayurveda termed the nose as the gateway to brain. with their amazingly accurate study of anatomy, the nose was considered as one of the important routes for medicine administration . nasya is being used in the diseases where the involvement and response of major nerves are expected, where the quickest absorption is needed. the nasal cavity is covered by a thin mucosa which is well vascularised. therefore, a drug molecule can be transferred quickly and directly to the systemic blood circulation. the first-pass hepatic and intestinal metabolism is bypassed. the effect is often achieved within 5 min for smaller drug molecules. nasal administration can therefore be used as an alternative to oral administration of for example tablets and capsules, if a fast effect is desired or if the drug is extensively degraded in the gut or liver. drugs which show poor absorptive can be given by this route.in ayurveda the unique way of such administration is called as nasya. nasya was considered so important that the authors in ayurveda included it to be followed regularly in routine. it is described for the health of organs above the collar bone i.e. head neck and surroundings of head and neck. regular nasya of sesame oil, or cow ghee is advised. mode of action:there are many theories to explain how the nasya acts on brain or endocrine systemthe olfactory bulb in the brain is directly connected to external environment through the olfactory nerve and its neurons in nasal cavity .( olfactory bulb and nerve make us able to smell ).the systemic absorbtion of the medicine used is absorbed through the nerve cells which is transferred to olfactory bulb .respiratory mucosa in nasal cavity absorbs the medicines making it systemic very quicklythe extend part of arachnoids matter of brain in nasal cavity and lymphatic channels are supposed to be the pathway for absorption in nasya medicine .procedure:the detail study of body type ( individual prakriti) and the disease .selection of medicated oil , ghrit to be used for nasya .whole body massage / facial paranasal sinuses massage and head massage with chosen oil followed by medicated steamthe nasya position : patient lying down with the head tilted backwards till the nose faces towards sky . the shoulder rested on pillow.the nasya medicine usually in 4 drops to 10 drops(depending upon the decided dose) in each nostril is introduced using cotton or dropper .the position is maintained for 5 mins to allow the absorption.patient is made to sit upright and the medicine that entered in oral cavity through nose is told to spit out .warm water gargles are advised to get rid of the taste and smell in oral cavity and wash out the sticky kafa dosha if accumulated in mouth.patient is advised to cover the head to avoid wind or sun exposure to the senses .the nasya course depends on the patient and the dosha condition.3 days to 8 days are advised generally with follow-ups afterwards.can i do it at home myself ? yes, to maintain the health of head and neck region , you can practice it regularly at home too . while doing it at home, one can omit the above said first three steps. when you are doing it regularly at home the dose should be very less. using luke warm sesame oil or cow ghee is advised for all in the dose of 2 drops in each nostril every day, preferably morning before bath . how nasya benefits : the nasya works according to the properties of herbs that are used to prepare oil or ghrit . the vaat, kaf and pitta dosha are acted upon to balance and bring relief in disease. even the pitutray gland which is situated exactly adjacent to the sphenoid sinus is proved to show improved endocrine functions due to the nasya therapy. following are the benefitsprevent diseases of the eyes, nose and ears.reduce/prevent graying of hair and hair fall.strengthen the veins, tendons, muscles located in the head and neck region.improve the voice and the overall facial appearanceimprove the cognitive function and memory in kids toopromote clarity of sense organsimprove the sleep.the nasya procedure has been used to treat several conditions in ayurvedic hospitals/practices including: –facial paralysis -neuralgia -stroke -eye pain -headaches, migraine -otalgia (ear ache) -pain in scapular region -vocal cord problems -sinusitis -epilepsy -anxiety -anger -premature aging -goiter, and many more conditions. contraindications: nasya should be avoided in following conditionsimmediately after heavy mealsacute indigestion , loose motion, acute rhinitishaving wet hair, 1 hour before/after the procedureimmediate stress, such as excessive excercise or emotioal melts down.suffering form fever or other acute infectionsdamp cloudy weather/on unseasonal rainy daysthe nasya should be done under strict guidance and observation of certified ayurved doctor when you are supposed to take it for health aliments or diseases. stay connected, ask question, share experiences stay healthy, stay blessed!!
