Out of the eight branches of Ayurveda, “Ra-say-a-na” is one of the most important. Rasa means “food juices”, the nutritional essence of food, and Ayana means “movement” or “circulation.” Rasayana treatment transports Rasa thoughout the body, nourishing and maintaining cells and systems, encouraging the growth of new cells and expelling damaged cells and toxins.
According to the Charaka Samhita, an ancient and primary Ayurvedic text, Rasayana is a substance that “promotes vigour in the healthy;” – it increases Ojas, complexion, glow and the essence of the seven dhatus (tissues.) Charaka says “long life, heightened memory and intelligence, freedom from disease, youth, excellence of lustre, complexion and voice, optimum strength of body and senses, utterances that always get fulfilled, the reverence of people, body glow — all these does a person obtain by the use of Rasayanas.”
The aim, then, of a Rasayana, is not merely to increase longevity, but to also increase energy and stamina so that one may enjoy one’s long life.
