Public Svasthavrtta

Public Svasthavrtta
In olden days, the Rishis initiated the science of ayurveda for the general awareness of the public. Public Svasthavrtta is a very important subject in ayurveda. Attempts were made on a large scale to apply the knowledge of ayurveda and collect medicinal substances to be used in days of scarcity. The authorities of ayurveda, as a general rule, declare it their business to solely relieve the public in distress, mainly caused by diseases. They consider this to be their religious duty. Ayurveda also offers spiritual and mental treatments for ailments in which no physical relief can be offered. The treatments consist of two parts: Daivavyapasraya and Sattvavijaya.

Sattvavijaya helps to control the desires for unnecessary worldly objectives, which are the cause of all types of mental worries. The Mental Svasthavrtta is a very important aspect not only in the case of an individual, but also in that of public.
