There are very few works done on the concept of Medha and Manas till today. So, the present study was carried out to describe the applied concept of Ayurvediya Mano-Vijnana, to assess Medha in classical direction and to assess the efficacy of Yashtimadhu Curna (Medhya Aushadha) and effect of Sattvavajaya Chikitsa on Medha. The subjects of the study were physically healthy volunteers between the age group of 16 to 25 years. They were divided into two groups. Selection and registration of volunteers was done by randomized open trial. In Group- A Yashtimadhu granules and in Group-B roasted Suji granules + Sattvavajaya Chikitsa were selected. For the assessment of Medha, P.G.I. Memory Scale, Recognition Cards of National Psychological Corporation, Agra was adopted and to assess the Manas Prakrti, a questionnaire was adopted with some modifications. In Group - A (Yashtimadhu group) 4.41% improvement was found which is statistically highly significant (<0.01) and in Group - B (Sattvavajaya Chikitsa group) 4.54% improvement is obtained which is statistically significant (<0.05). Yashtimadhu and Sattvavajaya Chikitsa, both were beneficial in promoting the 'Medha in healthy volunteers hence need is to conduct such a study on large number of patients for a longer duration.
