Swastha (Health in Ayurveda)
The objective of Ayurveda is to establish prime health in every being, physically, mentally and spiritually. The basic concepts and fundamental principles aim at establishing such a condition through correct and thorough knowledge of healthy living. The living body can function normally only when its Doshas, Dhathus, Malas and Agni are in a state of equilibrium. The Trigunas also play a vital role in the maintenance of three-dimensional health. When these factors become increased or decreased, either partially or totally, the body may either becomes sick or dead.
Health according to Ayurveda can be defined as a state of equilibrium of the action of Doshas, Dhathus, Malas and Agni accompanied by a sensation of well being (tranquillity) of body and Sense organs, Mind and Soul. Such a person is called self established or SWASTHA
