No water or, in case of incapability, little (is) to be drunk by those suffering from weak digestion and visceral induration (and) by those suffering from jaundice, abdominal swellings, diarrhea, hemorrhoids [viz., arśas], dysentery, and cutaneous swellings.

Rahman’s Science and Technology in Medievel India: A bibliography of source materials in Sanskrit, Arabic and Persian.—Ancient and medieval India produced a wide range of scientific manuscripts and major contributions lie in the field of medicine, astronomy and mathematics, besides covering encyclopedic glossaries and technical dictionaries.—The Dhanvantarīyapathyāpathya deals with the treatment of various diseases [e.g., Arśa]. The word pathyāpathya classifies those elements as either beneficial or hurtful in disease.Source: Research Gate: Internal applications of Vatsanabha (Aconitum ferox wall)

Ārṣa (आर्ष).—A form of marriage. Brāhma is the form of marriage in which the bride is given to a man of good ancestry and fine character. Marriage by giving the bride after receiving a pair of cows from the bridegroom is called Ārṣa. Prājāpatya is the form of marriage in which the bride is given to the man who asks for her. When the bride is given with dowry, the marriage is known as Āsuram. Marriage with the mutual love and consent is Gāndharva. Capturing the bride after a fight and marrying her by force is Rākṣasa. Marriage after deceiving the bride is called Paiśāca. These are the seven types of marriage. According to the author of the Smṛti another form of marriage known as DAIVA is also mentioned. (Agni Purāṇa, Chapter 154).Source: Cologne Digital Sanskrit Dictionaries: The Purana Index

Vyakarana (Sanskrit grammar)Source: Wikisource: A dictionary of Sanskrit grammar
Ārṣa (आर्ष).—Derived from the holy sages; founded on sacred tradition, such as the Vedāṅgas;cf. कृत्स्नं च वेदाड्गमनिन्द्यमार्षम् (kṛtsnaṃ ca vedāḍgamanindyamārṣam) R. Prāt. XIV 30. The word is explained as स्वयंपाठ (svayaṃpāṭha) by the com. on Vāj Prāt. IX.2I, and as Vaidika saṃdhi on X.l3. Patañjali has looked upon the pada-pāṭha or Pada-text of the Saṃhitās of the Vedas, as anārṣa, as contrasted with the Saṃhitā text which is ārṣa; cf. आर्ष्याम् (ārṣyām) in the sense संहितायाम् (saṃhitāyām) R. Prāt. II.27; cf. also पदकारैर्नाम लक्षणमनुवर्त्यम् (padakārairnāma lakṣaṇamanuvartyam) M.Bh. on III.1.109.
Vyakarana (व्याकरण, vyākaraṇa) refers to Sanskrit grammar and represents one of the six additional sciences (vedanga) to be studied along with the Vedas. Vyakarana concerns itself with the rules of Sanskrit grammar and linguistic analysis in order to establish the correct context of words and sentences.
Shilpashastra (iconography)Source: Shodhganga: Vaisnava Agamas And Visnu Images
Ārsa (आर्स) refers to “icons in places installed by Ṛṣis”, as defined in treatises such as the Pāñcarātra, Pādmasaṃhitā and Vaikhānasa-āgamas, extensively dealing with the technical features of temple art, iconography and architecture in Vaishnavism.—As far as the Jīrṇoddhāraṇa (renovation) metal icons are concerned, the Vaiṣṇava Āgamas lay special rules because the authors of the Āgamas obviously knew the value and re-usable condition of metals. [...] Some special rules are prescribed in the Vaiṣṇava Āgamas regarding the jīrṇoddhāraṇa of the metal icons installed in the places generally known as svayaṃvyakta (self-emanated), divya (installed by divinities), saiddha (installed by Siddhas) and ārsa (installed by Ṛṣis). In the renovation process, the permission to correct the characteristics (lakṣaṇa) of the icon is not admissible in these aforesaid places. The measurements and characteristics less or more, the same material is to be retained as it were. [...]
Shilpashastra (शिल्पशास्त्र, śilpaśāstra) represents the ancient Indian science (shastra) of creative arts (shilpa) such as sculpture, iconography and painting. Closely related to Vastushastra (architecture), they often share the same literature.
Rasashastra (chemistry and alchemy)Source: Wisdom Library: Rasa-śāstra
Arśas (अर्शस्) or Arśoroga refers to “piles” according to the fourth volume of the Rasajalanidhi (chapter 5). Accordingly, “the main indication of the disease [i.e., arśas-roga] is the growth of lumps of flesh, either outside or inside the rectum. Piles may lead to the growth of all sorts of diseases. Bleeding piles are those which are due to an abnormal excess of pitta. Those which grow isolated from one another, and give rise to udavarta, are due to abnormal excess of vayu. Those, due to an abnormal excess of kapha, are accompanied with swelling. Piles, due to an abnormal excess of all the three doshas, have all those symptoms combined”
Rasashastra (रसशास्त्र, rasaśāstra) is an important branch of Ayurveda, specialising in chemical interactions with herbs, metals and minerals. Some texts combine yogic and tantric practices with various alchemical operations. The ultimate goal of Rasashastra is not only to preserve and prolong life, but also to bestow wealth upon humankind.
Kavya (poetry)Source: OpenEdition books: Vividhatīrthakalpaḥ (Kāvya)
Arśas (अर्शस्) in Sanskrit (or Arisa in Prakrit) refers to “hemorrhoids”, as is mentioned in the Vividhatīrthakalpa by Jinaprabhasūri (13th century A.D.): an ancient text devoted to various Jaina holy places (tīrthas).—Cf. Meulenbeld 1974 p. 619.
Kavya (काव्य, kavya) refers to Sanskrit poetry, a popular ancient Indian tradition of literature. There have been many Sanskrit poets over the ages, hailing from ancient India and beyond. This topic includes mahakavya, or ‘epic poetry’ and natya, or ‘dramatic poetry’.
