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”
