Saṃjñāsthāpana (संज्ञास्थापन) is the Sanskrit name for a group of medicinal plants, classified as “restoring consciousness”, and originally composed by Caraka in his Carakasaṃhitā sūtrasthāna IV. The name is derived from the words saṃjñā, translating to “consciousness”, and sthāpana, translating to “maintaining” or “preserving”. It is a technical term used throughout Āyurveda. Examples of plants pertaining to this category include Kaitarya (Melia sempervirens), Vayasthā (Gratiola monnieria) and Golomi (Corydalis goyaniana). The collection of herbs named Saṃjñāsthāpana is one of the fifty Mahākaṣāya.
