Ayurveda is not merely a compendium of therapeutics based on herbal, animal and mineral resources of medicament but deals with philosophy of life and living. According to Ayurveda concept we do not treat the symptoms, always the disease pathogenesis is given importance. Only when a pathogenesis is controlled, The disease will be subsided. Charaka and Vagbhata primarily classified the treatment procedure as follows ; 1. Daivavyapasraya (Divine therapy or Treatment by faith). 2. Yukthivyapasraya (scientific therapy or treatment upon reasoning). 3. Sattvavajaya (Psycho therapy - treatment by self control).In Daivavyapasraya, Daiva has been used in the sense of karmas, which are related to our previous life. Daivavyapasraya method creates confidence and removes the fearing and pessimistic tendencies. The following treatment in the shape of good deeds is recommended for disease caused by Daiva "Mantra, Aushadha, Mani, Mangala, Bali, Upahara, Homa, Niyama, Prayaschitha, Upavasa, Swasthyayana Pranipata and Yathragamana.The word Mantra literally means revealed sound. It means a sound or a combinations or sequence of sound developed spontaneously. Their power is not in the words themselves but in the sound vibrations created when they are uttered verbally. The source of Mantra power is twofold:1. Pertaining to its form. 2. To its content. The structure of Gayatri Mantra is in perfect tune with the science of cosmic sound. The great significance of Japa is not due to chance, or without any firm basis. Had it been so, such a large number of devotees and yogis of the Gayatri sadhana would not have been advised to waste time in practicing more and more japa for longer and longer durations.
