Ayurveda (science of life)

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

Saṃpanna (संपन्न) refers to “perfect”, and is mentioned in verse 1.28 of the Aṣṭāṅgahṛdayasaṃhitā (Sūtrasthāna) by Vāgbhaṭa.—Saṃpanna (Tibetan: phun-thsogs) “perfect” is interpreted by the commentators to allude either to the origin (praśastabhūmideśajāta, “grown in a recommended tract of land”) or to the preparation (pākasaṃskārādiyukta, “subjected to cooking, dressing etc.”) of the medicine.

Aruṇadatta refers in this connection to Aṣṭāṅgahṛdayasaṃhitā V.6.1 sqq.:

“As medicine is recommended (anything) grown in a desert or moderate region (a region that is) even, of good soil, clean, devoid of cremation grounds, topes, temples, chasms, and ant-hills, soft, of auspicious water, covered with kusa and geranium grass, untilled by the plough, (and) unassailed by bigger trees”

It is filled with many forms and adorned with knowledge and (divine) qualities. Possessing many wonders [i.e., anekāścarya-saṃpanna], it is life itself in the triple universe. (All) this is filled by it and so it is called 'Full' (pūrṇa i.e. Pūrṇagiri). (The Fire of Time) has seven tongues (of flame; his) form is Time and has six faces. Possessing the Full Moon, (he) is beautiful. (He is) the Great Vitality, holds a spear and brings about creation and destruction”.
