Keywords:Cassia fistula Linn, Collection method, Aragvadha, Standardization, Sangrahana Vidhi
Ayurved advocates that drug should be collected with proper classical methods. In Ayurvedic texts, specific time, season and procedures or methods have been highlighted for getting better potency, efficacy and therapeutic properties of drug by describing the standard methods of drug collection and preservation in details. Now a day, due to lack of proper traditional knowledge and time very few people bother to follow all these methods of collection given by Acharya. Hence, the potency of medicines is of question. Aragvadha (Cassia fistula Linn.) has been popular as a common drug of choice treatment since ancient time. Classic text like Charaka Samhita has quoted the classical and particular method for the collection and preservation of Aragvadha Phalamajja (Cassia fistula Linn.). Acharya Charaka has quoted this collection method of Aragvadha Phalamajja(Cassia fistula Linn.)as follows- The good qualities of collected pods should be kept covered in river bed sand for seven days. After seven days these pods should be removed and kept in sunlight for some time. And thereafter, fruit pulp (phalamajja) should be extracted and stored in a clean vessel. Therefore, study of classically collected Aragvadha Phalamajja (Cassia fistula Linn.) and Market sample of Aragvadha Phalamajja (Cassia fistula Linn.) was carried out.
