Ayurveda (science of life)Source: Wisdom Library: Āyurveda and botany
Śārada (शारद) is a Sanskrit word for a variety of rice (ṣaṣṭika) which is said to have a superior quality, according to Caraka in his Carakasaṃhitā sūtrasthāna (chapter 27), a classical Ayurvedic work. The literal translation of the word is “produced/growing in autumn”. The plant Śārada is part of the Śūkadhānyavarga group of medicinal plants, referring to the “group of awned grains”. Caraka defined such groups (vargas) based on the dietic value of the plant. Śārada is said to be cold, unctuous, non-heavy, promoting the stability of and alleviates the three doṣas.Source: Wisdom Library: Raj Nighantu
Śarada (शरद) refers to the “autumn season” in the traditional Indian calendar, and consists of the months Aśvin and Kārtika, according to the second chapter (dharaṇyādi-varga) of the 13th-century Raj Nighantu or Rājanighaṇṭu (an Ayurvedic encyclopedia). The physician (bhiṣaj) should pay attention to the seasonal (ṛtu) factor in the use of medicinal drugs. Accordingly, “the bulbous roots in winter season, other roots in cold season and flowers during spring season are supposed to contain better properties. The new leaves or shoots in summer and the drugs, which grow in mud, like Lotus etc., should be used in autumn season (śarada)”.Source: Wisdom Library: Local Names of Plants and Drugs
