Durdina (दुर्दिन) refers to “bad weather”, mentioned in verse 3.46 of the Aṣṭāṅgahṛdayasaṃhitā (Sūtrasthāna) by Vāgbhaṭa.—Accordingly, “[...] as the (humours and the gastric fire) irritate one another this way, one shall turn to all (substances) that (are) applicable to all humours and promotive of the (gastric) fire: [...] whey richly mixed with sochal salt or besprinkled with powder of the five spices, rain-water, well-water, and boiled water; in very bad weather (ati-durdina), however, food”.

Note: ati-durdina (“very bad weather”) has been paraphrased by char chei dus (“time of heavy rain”).
