After the end of an era the sumeru mountain too gets dislodged and after an epoch the seas deluge the land by crossing its share limits. But a superior man remains firm on his resolve to fulfil the promise given. (Chanakya Neeti Chapter 13/19)

"Ayurveda" is the science and art given by the ancient seers. Its enriched with such promising words of ancient sages. "Change" is the universal law and Ayurveda has designed based on this principle. Concepts of Ayurveda are time tested. But application methods are changing as per the requirement of particular era.

"Transition of knowledge" can be observed from vedic period to till date. Oral form of knowledge propagation has been shifted to technology based knowledge propagation. In the mid phase "Textual based knowledge propagation" was there. This textual based knowledge propagation is the bridge between "Oral based and technology based knowledge propagation". Textual based knowledge propagation is applicable and in use till today as it is having wide scope.

"Vaidya Vallabha"- Written by "Hasti Ruchi" a Jain sage, is such an effort through which textual based knowledge propagation has been done.
