In Tibetan medicine, which borrowed much from Ayurveda, including the doctrine of the three doshas, the seven tissues and three types of waste, four classes of disease varies: disease caused by the powerful influence of karma, inherited from previous births;disease originating in the earlier periods of life, but manifested in the later;diseases associated with the spirits;and finally, the disease underlying surface.Of these four classes only superficial disease can be treated easily with the help of selection of food, medical treatment and procedures.Diseases of the first three classes require the addition of this additional spiritual intervention.Only in the case of diseases of the last class of the causal effect of the primary dosha, in other cases, they act only as a reflection of the more powerful and subtle reasons, the strongest of which is the law of karma.
law of karma, which is called the law of action and reaction - it is nothing like Newton's third law: "Whenever one object exerts an impact
doctrine of reincarnation was important for legislators classical India as on doctrinal and political reasons.Wanting to protect their privileges by legitimizing the power of the aristocracy of the merchant class and the peasantry, the priests found very convenient to declare that the conditions of this life are the direct result of behavior in a previous life and that unconditional humility to his position - is the only way to secure a better birth in the next time.Advanced interpretation of this statement led to the belief that karma of past lives - the only cause of health and disease, and that the unchangeable past karma for this life.Since everything is preordained, the treatment is useless;Only by fate depends on whether the patient survives or dies, as well as the fate decides who is the master and who the servant.
Ayurveda, also adhere to the doctrine of reincarnation, it accepts the fact, but not the immutability of the law of karma.Charaka devotes an entire chapter to the theory of karma and its application to medicine and concludes that although the impact of past karmas and significantly, efforts committed in real life, and also significant that the only rational therapy is useless for the terminally ill.Jesus taught that sins, or past karma may be released, and in Ayurveda it is attached to the physical existence.According to Ayurveda and Tibetan medicine, karmic illnesses disappear as soon as the power of karma is exhausted, and some of these diseases can be cure compliance with therapeutic measures for a long period of time.
Charaka indicates that all treatises on medicine agree on one thing: that "there is a reason there's disease and have the means to cure preventable diseases."In other words, the concept of disease as a consequence of wrong actions in the past, the existence of acceptable medicine only when no other explanation is possible.This is similar to the concept used to explain Prabhava only when the effects of the drug on the body can not be explained in terms of its taste, power and impact effect after absorption.Prabhava defies logical analysis, as karma.Of all taken in direct perception (pratyaksa, literally "before your eyes") Ayurveda logical proof method is considered the most significant and therefore the most important, and in comparison with them even the authority of the scriptures recedes into the background.Therefore, karma retreats into the background, if you can see the immediate causes of the disease, which can affect the physician.
Nevertheless, the importance of the unseen reasons yet recognized in Ayurveda due to the existence of a large number of states that can not be explained only disorder doshas.The causes of these conditions relate to a deeper level than the one on which there are doshas. There are seven basic types of diseases :
- Genetic or hereditary .This includes trends that may emerge fully, partially, or not appear at all, such as leprosy, piles, diabetes and asthma.
- Congenital , such ugliness.
- Metabolic , associated with metabolism.They are caused by disorders of the doshas due to inadequate food intake and other essential substances.
- Traumatic .This includes both physical and emotional trauma.
- Temporary .This neglect seasonal or other restrictions that must be protected from adverse weather or astrological influences.
- Divine .Disobeying a teacher, curses, witchcraft and disease.
- Natural .Hunger, thirst, sleep, fatigue, and other needs, the destruction, aging and death.
Of these types, only one called directly the functioning of the doshas.The fundamental cause of the disease and the cause of all human activities, generating karma - a passionate attachment of living beings to things of this world.We call it desire.
