Abstract

The Ayurvedic system, one of the oldest medical traditions globally, derives its wisdom from classical texts written by revered Acharyas. These texts provide tools for interpretation, especially pertinent in understanding Vadamargas, the procedures for scholarly debates. Acharya Charaka, in the Vimanasthan of Charak Samhita, expounds on Siddhanta Vadamarga, a pivotal aspect among the 44 Vadamargas. The term "Siddhanta" denotes a decision, emphasizing verification through diverse examinations. Four categories of Siddhanta are elucidated: Sarvatantra Siddhanta, Pratitantra Siddhanta, Adhikarana Siddhanta, and Abhyupagama Siddhanta.

This review delves into Siddhanta Vadamarga and this study explores the multifaceted term "Chaturvidha Siddhanta." Siddhanta, according to Acharya Charaka, is emphasizing reasoning and comprehensive examinations by Pareekshakas.

The study further categorizes Siddhanta into Sarvatantra Siddhanta, universally accepted, lacks contradictory statements, contrasting with Pratitantra Siddhanta, acknowledged within specific texts. Adhikarana Siddhanta involves referencing established principles, while Abhyupagama Siddhanta accepts unproven concepts, emphasizing individual reasoning.

In conclusion, Siddhanta remains pivotal in scientific research, serving as the foundation for Ayurvedic principles. This comprehensive exploration contributes to bridging ancient Ayurvedic wisdom with modern understanding, fostering a deeper appreciation for the rich heritage of Ayurveda.
