Ayurveda (science of life)Source: Wisdom Library: Āyurveda and botany
Aṅkaloḍya (अङ्कलोड्य) is a Sanskrit word referring to Euryale ferox (fox nut), a plant species in the Nymphaeaceae family. Certain plant parts of Tarūṭa are eaten as a vegetable (śāka), according to Caraka in his Carakasaṃhitā sūtrasthāna (chapter 27), a classical Ayurvedic work. The plant is therefore part of the Śākavarga group of medicinal plants, referring to the “group of vegetables/pot-herbs”. Caraka defined such groups (vargas) based on the dietic value of the plant.
Āyurveda (आयुर्वेद, ayurveda) is a branch of Indian science dealing with medicine, herbalism, taxology, anatomy, surgery, alchemy and related topics.
