1) Saṃprāpti (संप्राप्ति):—A Sanskrit technical term translating to “onset”, referring to one of the “five characteristics of diagnosis” (pañcalakṣaṇanidāna). It is used throughout Ayurvedic literature such as the Caraka-saṃhitā and the Suśruta-saṃhitā. These five characteristics are regarded as very important clues for diagnosis (nidāna) within Āyurveda.

2) Samprāpti (सम्प्राप्ति or संप्राप्ति) is a Sanskrit technical term, translating to “pathogenesis”.

The entire process of Pathogenesis (saṃprāpti) has been analysed into the following six stages:

  1. Sañcaya (‘accumulation’),
  2. Prakopa (‘aggravation’),
  3. Prasara (‘dissemination’),
  4. Sthānasaṃśraya (‘localization’),
  5. Vyakti (‘manifestation’)
  6. and Bheda (‘explosion’).

In the fourth stage the premonitory symptoms appear and in the next stage the disease is fully manifested. In the last stage the abscess bursts (in surgery) and the disease becomes chronic (in medicine). These stages are also known as Kriyākālas (stages for remedial measures). Even before the disease manifests, the physician has to take proper action so that it is nipped in the bud.
