Ayurveda is widely used and millions, especially in rural India, depend on it for their health care needs. Ayurvedic colleges graduate over 20,000 physicians a year and Ayurvedic industry produces over Rs. 6000 crores worth of herbal products a year. Ayurveda has won the recognition of the WHO and the developed countries as Complementary and Alternative Medicine , which is taught as an Introductory course in Western medical schools.

Tracing its roots to Atharvaveda, Ayurvedic medicine was practised in Buddha s period though the term Ayurveda was not used in Vedic or Buddhist texts. Buddha s famous physician Jivaka was trained in Taksasila which was then a reputed Centre for medical studies. The knowledge of the practice of medicine in Buddha s period is sketchy but there is enough to show the major shifts it made from the Vedic practice of medicine. The systematization of Ayurveda took place when the three texts known after Charaka, Susruta and Vagbhata were redacted in the present form from 1st to 6th centuries.
Apart from a historical introduction, the course presents a fairly comprehensive view of the basic concepts and procedures and the new trends in scientific research in Ayurveda for the students of medicine, Ayurveda, and biological and social sciences.
