Ayurveda (science of life)
Śatapatra (शतपत्र) is a Sanskrit word referring to the “woodpecker”. The meat of this animal is part of the māṃsavarga (‘group of flesh’), which is used throughout Āyurvedic literature. The animal Śatapatra is part of the sub-group named Pratuda, refering to animals “who eat while striking”. It was classified by Caraka in his Carakasaṃhitā sūtrasthāna (chapter 27), a classical Āyurvedic work. Caraka defined such groups (vargas) based on the dietic properties of the substance.Source: Wisdom Library: Āyurveda and botany
