In this modern era of changed lifestyle, people are more prone to various physical and mental Diseases. The busy work schedules, polluted environment, improper food habits, etc.,are all hampering the health status of an individual, which is often ignored. Health is something which cannot be taken for granted as isthe ultimate thing to attain all the Purusharthas,i.e., Dharma, Artha, Kama, Moksha. Hence it is high time to take care of self, inorder to have a sound mind and a sound body. This will help attain longevity. Acharya Charaka says, ‘Ayu’is the conglomeration of Shareera, Indriya, Satwaand Atma. So,when we aim at longevity, well being of all these four entities matters a lot. Achara Rasayanais one such unique concept of Ayurveda which concentrates on all these four entities, hence helping in healthy living. The word ‘Achara’ means ‘Shastra Shikshaakrita vyavahara’, i.e.,the good conducts developed or acquired by understanding the Shastras. Rasayanais something which helps in attaining longevity. These good conducts have positive effects on our health like the Rasayana, hence called as AcharaRasayana. Understanding this and following the same is the need of the hour as our health is being ruinedday by day due to various such factors which are often neglected.
