Ayurveda (science of life)Source: Wisdom Library: Āyurveda and botany
Kalana (कलन) is another name (synonym) for Vetasa, which is a Sanskrit name for the plant Salix caprea (goat willow). This synonym was identified by Narahari in his 13th-century Rājanighaṇṭu (verse 9.106), which is an Ayurvedic medicinal thesaurus. Certain plant parts of Vetasa are eaten as a vegetable (śāka), and it is therefore part of the Śākavarga group of medicinal plants, referring to the “group of vegetables/pot-herbs”.
Āyurveda (आयुर्वेद, ayurveda) is a branch of Indian science dealing with medicine, herbalism, taxology, anatomy, surgery, alchemy and related topics. Traditional practice of Āyurveda in ancient India dates back to at least the first millenium BC. Literature is commonly written in Sanskrit using various poetic metres.
