Source: Vagbhata’s Ashtanga Hridaya Samhita (first 5 chapters)

Pānīya (पानीय) refers to “water”, as mentioned in a verse sometimes added after 5.18 of the Aṣṭāṅgahṛdayasaṃhitā (Sūtrasthāna) by Vāgbhaṭa.—Accordingly, “[...] water [viz., pānīya] (is) the (spring of) life of (all) living beings, and everything (is) possessed of it; therefore water is in no case prohibited by (any) ever so incisive restriction (on food). Dryness of the mouth, languidness of the limbs etc., or (even) death (result) from its not being taken; for without water (there is) no function (of life either) in a healthy or in a diseased (person)”.

Note: After verse 18d, some manuscripts insert 4½ couplets from Aṣṭāṅgasaṃgraha I.6 (26cd—27, 31, 28—29 of our subsequent numeration), the first 2½ of which are also known to, and commented upon by, Aruṇadatta.
