  • Charaka An eminent ancient authority of Ayurveda. Charakas as wandering seers or students are mentioned in the early texts susch as the Shatapatha Brahmana Ashtadhyayi of Panini or in later Puranas.  But as is the case with the Greek Hippocratic text, one does not know for certain how many authors with similar names were engaged in the composition of the Charaka Samhita.
  • Charaka Samhita  The most famous text of Ayurveda. During the political, social upheavals throughout Indian history many of the medical writings were evidently los or destroyed. The present shape of the Charaka and Sushruta texts demonstrate efforts made to gather and collate the dispersed documents. Agnivesha, the original author of most of the text is noted as the famous seer in the Brihadaranyaka Upanisha datable to 6th century BC.
  • Charma Roga  Diseases of the skin
  • Chhardi Vormiting.
  • Chhidra Pore
  • Churna When a drug after purification is made in the form of powder, itís called Churna. It may be coarse or fine, according to requirements.
