Visa Cikitsa Ayurvedic Toxicology ‘Jagath vishanņam tham dựshtvaa Thēnaasau vishasamjňithah’ (Ashtaanggahṛdayam, Uththara: 35:2)

From this quotation we can understand that, as visha causes vishaņņa or vishaada it is called as ‘Visha’ (Poison).

‘Analaanila samyukthaath jaayathē garaļam bhuvi Prthhvi ap cha jaatham amṛtham vishanaaśanam’ (P.N. Neelakanthan Karthaa)

Visha is formed in the union of the ‘Panchabhoothas’ by the predominence of the two ‘mahaabhoothas’ ‘Anala’ or ‘Agni’ and ‘Anila’ or ‘Vaatha’. In the same way ‘Amrtha’ which is ‘vishanaaśana’ is in the union the ‘Panchabhoothas’ formed by the predominence of the ‘mahaabhoothas’ ‘Ap’ or ‘Jala’ and ‘Prthhvi’ or ‘Bhoomi’.


Theekshņoshņarooksham viśadam vyavaayi aaśukaram laghu Vikaashi sookshmamavyakthaarasam vishamapaaki cha’. Theekshņa, ushņa, rooksha, viśada, vyavaayi, aaśu- karam, laghu vikaashi, sookshma, avyaktharasam and apaaki- these are the qualities of visha. As it is vyavaayi it spreads before digestion and it is ‘aaśu’ or fast in action. ‘Apaaki’ is the most important quality of visha which means it won’t undergo digestion or it cannot be digested by the body.
