Yātrā For svāsthya: A Perspective From Āyurveda

After elaborating the holistic and composite nature of the āyurvedic concepts of ārogya and svāsthya, the paper interprets yātrā as a journey that begins with a visit to a tīrtha of one’s chosen deity but ends in return to the self within (ātman) in svāsthya using the literary device of metaphor. Tīrthayātrā constitutes a major socio-cultural concept in the Indic thought world that sets the jīva on the road to mokṣa and that also assures its health and wellbeing as well as that of its family and community.
