Svabhāvata (स्वभावत) or Svabhāva refers to the classification of medicinal drugs (auṣadhi) and substances (dravy) according to “natural properties” (or the state of a thing as such), as defined in the 13th-century Raj Nighantu or Rājanighaṇṭu (an Ayurvedic encyclopedia). Accordingly, “these seven [eg., Svabhāvata] are the everlasting sources of the names i.e. names spoken in different regions or countries such as Kāśmīraja, Kāmbojī, Magadhodbhavā or Vālhikā”.
