Keywords:Ritu, Ahar, Vihar, Pathya, Apathya
In general there are mainly three seasons: winter, summer, rainy season. According to Ayurveda, six seasons
are considered: Vasant, Grishma, Varsha, Sharad, Hemant and Shishir. Acharya Sushrut has divided the 12
months of the year into these seasons. There are two parts of the year in which the sun moves towards north
in the first part and in the second part, the sun moves towards the south in Visarga. These are termed as
adanakala and visargakala. There are winter, spring and summer seasons in the input period and varsha and
Hemant seasons in the Visarga period. At the time of exchange, the Sun remains strong and the moon weak.
The peak season is strong, spring is medium and summer is beautiful. During the Visarga period, the Moon
is strong and the Sun is weak. Lunar is nutritious. The rainy season is of great strength, the autumn season
is of medium strength and the spring season is of great strength.
