ABSTRACT :

The stream of Ayurveda medical knowledge is considered eternal because it was known by them to have been there since the beginning of time. Knowledge of Ayurveda was recollected by Lord Brahma and ultimately it reached to the mankind with the sole motto of health maintenance and health restoration. Ayurveda Acharyas are equivalent to modern era scientists who unfolded the Trisutra Ayurveda and enhanced the knowledge by various scientific methodologies. Chronological analysis of Vedas, Upanishads and Samhitas reveal that Acharyas enriched and expanded the knowledge of Ayurveda with the passage of time through their theoretical and practical expertise.
