Abstract

Vaya, which means Age, represents state of body depending upon the length of time that has passed since birth of a human being. Considering a total life span of 100 years, Acharya Charaka and Sushrutha has described old age after 60 years and 70 years respectively. The present study reveals that the process of ageing was elaborately described in Ayurveda. In order to prolong the life span and to promote longevity a separate discipline called Rasayana Tantra was developed. The silent features of this study are described in this article.
