Aganttu roga(traumatic diseases) :—

Those diseases produced by bhãta (evil spirits, bacteria, parasites, insects and other living Lings), via (poisons), air (hurricane, cyclone), agni (fire, electricity, radiation etc.) kata (injury, wounds etc.), bhanga (fracture of bones) etc., as also those due to rãga (desire, lust), dvesa (hatred), bhaya (fear) etc. are all known as Aganiu.—diseases (arising from external causes). 31.
Sarvaroga Sannya cikits—(gcneral trentent for all diseases) :—

Avoidance of improper rctivites (of the body, mind and speech by willful trarsgreion of rules), control of the senses, remembering previous expetiances (and acting rightly), good knowkdge of the land (Iabitat). tin e (season, age) and the

self (and their importance to health), adherence to rules of good (moral) conduct, coiiduc of propithiry rites as prescribed in the Atharva veda, worshipping ol’ nialevalent planets, not touching (not coming in cOntact directly) the bhutas (evil spirits, bacteria; insects and other creatuies)—these are in brief enumerated heie, as the plan (means, methods) to prevent the onset of diseases-both nija (organic) and ägañtu (trauniatic)—and also for the cuie ( oi relief) of those (diseases) which have already arisen.

The accumilation of doas arising from cold (season) should be expelled out during vasanta (sprig); that arising from grima (su mer) should be expeUed during abhrakäla (varsä. rainy season); that arising from vai (rainy season) be expelled during ghanatyaya (arad-, utumu) exlcditiously and effectively. By this, people will not become victims of diseases born (by the effect) of the seasons.
He, who indulges daily in healthy foods and activities, who descrirniiates (the good and bad of evezything and then acts wisely), who is not attached (too much) to the objects of the senses, who dcvelos the habit of charity, of considering all as equal (requiz ing kindness), of ti uthfulness, of pardoning and keeping company of good persons oniy, becomes free from all distases.
Thus ends the chapter called Rogãnutpadaniya, the fourth in Sütrastharia of AsangaIidaya sathhitã ofiimad Vagbhaa son of sri vaidyapati Simhagupta.
