Qualities of a surgeon according to Ayurveda

According to the great Indian Surgeon,  Acharya Sushruta, a surgeon must have the following six qualities;

  • Shaurya: He should have enough ‘Dare’ to perform surgical procedures.
  • Aashukriya: He should be ‘fast acting’, both physically as well as mentally.
  • Shastrataikshyanam: His instruments should be ‘sharp’ enough to perform the surgical procedures.
  • Swedavepathu: He ‘must not get frightened’ if there is any  emergency and ‘his hands must not have tremors’ due to fear.
  • Asammohasha: He ‘must not become hopeless’  in case there is serious patient/emergency.

The teachings hold absolutely true in today’s era too. What a great Surgeon and scholar he was! Didn’t he?

Jai Ayurveda!!!
