If physician treats an untreatable patient with wrong assessment he may lose his name, fame and money; also his strengths as a physician loses. Charaka Samhitha which is one of the prime source of knowledge for science of Ayurveda has a section called “The Indriya Sthana” which is specifically dedicated to ensure that the physician does not misjudge the condition of his patients. In Indriya Sthana the knowledge of Arista Lakshana is divided in twelve chapters. The Arista Lakshanas are classified as Purusamanashritani and Purusasamshrayani.
