Abstract

Atattvabhinivesa  described as Mahagada in Charaka Samhita is characterized by a confused state of the mind and false interpretation of the truth. The patient is unable to differentiate the real and the unreal. In modern Parlance Psychosis which is characterised by loss of contact with reality and relationship with other people develops hallucinations and delusions can be interpreted as Atattvabhinivesa. In this study, Atattvabhinivesa is reviewed from authoritative Ayurvedic literature with rational approach to elucidate the attributes in relation with the etiology, pathogenesis and treatment principles.
