Abstract

Today, the most talked about topic in Ayurveda system of medicine is the Research and its need, scope and utility. As the Ayurveda system of medicine has a divine origin deeply associated with the ancient most source of knowledge i.e. the Veda, it is generally accepted that there is no lacuna in this science as it has thrived since the existence of man and still deeply intertwined with the Indian Philosophy and culture. However, with the scientific developments and refinement of the old theories, it becomes mandatory to have a scientific insight into this ancient but most followed holistic system of medicine. This is possible through the introduction of the research practice in Ayurveda system of medicine. The research in Ayurveda aims to develop a scientific view of the concepts and theories laid down in the classics with the necessary amendments made wherever desired keeping the basic principles intact. Thus, the challenge is to make Ayurveda in line with the contemporary progressive sciences through the systematic research activity.
