OATH TAKEN DURING THE DOCTOR'S INITIATION IN TRADITIONAL AYURVEDIC MEDICINE («CHARAK OATH»)

Full Text

Abstract

The ancient physicians often expressed their own ethical commitments by means of oaths. These oaths were part-an-parcel of the ceremony of initiation into a medical profession. This article analyzes the oath of a medical student quoted in Caraka samhita. Charaka samhita is one of the basic medical treatises in traditional Ayurvedic medicine.
