Ayurved, a science which is constant and everlasting. It maintained its domain in the medical sciences. It deals all parts of life, based on its fundamental principles. Charak samhita is the most conclusive and complete concise edition of Ayurvedic literature. Indriya sthana deals with various fatal signs and symptoms which denote imminent death and knowledge of life expectancy in the patients who are at end-of-life stages. Indriya sthana of Charak samhita comprises 12 chapters and 'Purvarupeeyam indriyam' is the 5th chapter of Indriya sthana. 'Purvarupeeyam indriyam' section gives the ideas like physiology and classification of swapna (dreams), auspicious and foreboding dreams, and arishta lakshanas relating to dreams. Now a day, Swapna phenomenon isn't in clinical practice that much but it has its own significance in the field of medicine.
