सतताध्ययनं वादः परतन्त्रावलोकनम् |
तद्विद्याचार्यसेवा च बुद्धिमेधाकरो गु(ग)णः ||२७||
आयुष्यं भोजनं जीर्णे वेगानां चाविधारणम् |
ब्रह्मचर्यमहिंसा च साहसानां च वर्जनम् ||२८||
On which aacharya Dalhana commented –
न केवलं रसायनयोगादेव मेधायुषी भवतः, किं तर्हि सतताध्ययनादपि बुद्धिमेधाकरो गु(ग)णो भवति|
स्वपक्षसाधनं परपक्षबाधनं वादः| परतन्त्राणिन्यायवैशेषिकहस्तिशिक्षाव्याकरणादीनि, तथैवेतराण्यायुष्याणि|
ब्रह्मचर्यम् इन्द्रियसंयमो वेदाध्ययनं वा| साहसम् अयथाबलमारम्भः||
Let’s understand this shloka as well…
Satata Adhyayana – Constant study, practice, revision, updating, exposure, and approach on constant basis and upgrading knowledge
Constant studying and revision would make understanding easy and one would surely master the subject. This also enables one to derive new thoughts and hypothesis related to that subject. Every new reading would ignite a new idea and every new idea will lead to probing deep into the subject and that in turn leads to the quest of learning new things and mastering over every aspect of the concerned subject.The same rule is applicable in all fronts of life, in all activities we do.
Vada – Discussions, arguments, debates, interactions, group studies, workshops, symposiums, sharing on the social network etc.
This is another effective tool for learning and enhancing intelligence and brain capacity. When one is indulged in any such discussions, the reasoning power is ignited which lead to new ideas.
Regular participation in these events will keep the brain functions activated.
This will also give an opportunity to meet different minds and intellects under one roof, sharing knowledge.
Para Tantra Avalokanam – Appreciation of other sciences and theories, accepting, endorsing and inculcating cross and additional references, comparative study, Research works, Library references etc.
Study or updating knowledge and fortifying it includes getting indulged in multiple references may be in the form of many allied books or getting the opinions of the scholars and masters of the same science or subject in discussion.
It is highly important that we appreciate parallel and allied sciences which fall into the vicinity of our science. Ayurveda had always been open-minded to accept the contemporary theories and sciences and implicate them into its science. E.g. Ayurveda has accepted some basics of Darshanas etc and has given the reference of those sciences in the discussion of certainly related chapters.
Even in Ancient Indian History, we can find references of Ayurveda being carried to distant countries by visitors and invaders. Ayurveda has thus influenced the origin of many medical sciences.
Thus Paratantra Avalokana plays a major part in upgrading knowledge, increasing and fortifying our knowledge, researching things and giving good things for the future generations to make ‘best out of good’.
Tad Vidya Acharya Seva – Serving, respecting, admiring and following resourceful teachers and scholars of related field, Post-graduation, and Ph.D. studies or any other higher studies being connected to a guide or teacher who helps us finish studies.
Those were the times of Gurukuls when Ayurveda was propounded and propagated. Being in the proximity of teachers and serving them paved way for extensive and comprehensive studying and learning. Following the footsteps of the teacher was the method of learning from their experience.
