Āsthāpana (आस्थापन, “non-unctuous enema”):—One of the five pañcakarma (or ‘five measures’) which are employed for Śodhana, an Ayurvedic method for purification of the body by eliminating malas. More specifically, it refers to any non-oily enema (an injection of liquid to motivate evacuation). The literal translation of Āsthāpana corresponds to “causing to stay or remain” or “placing, fixing”. It is composed of the prefix Ā and sthāpana (“maintaining, causing to stand”).
Āyurveda (आयुर्वेद, ayurveda) is a branch of Indian science dealing with medicine, herbalism, taxology, anatomy, surgery, alchemy and related topics.
