Prakriti type assessment
LATE PRIN. B. V. BHIDE FOUNDATION
Following questionnaire will assess your Prakriti so as to provide you the feedback about your Prakriti type or behavioral phenotype in prescribed format. Prakriti is sum total of morphological, physiological and psychological traits in human beings. Prakriti depends on genetic as well as acquired factors. The genetic factor depends upon sperm and ova, while acquired constitution depends on environmental factors like climate, season, time factor, age, race, family inheritance.
The clinical and therapeutic utility of the knowledge of Prakriti has been vibrantly described in traditional Ayurvedic texts. The knowledge of Prakriti is not only helpful in diagnosis and treatment but it is equally beneficial for healthy persons. It is
comprehensive in scope, spanning both physical and mental aspects.
This questionnaire will be useful to critically observe yourself and will give us information about your Prakriti characteristics.
Your response will be used for research purpose only and analysis report will be sent to you within one week on the email address provided by you. As of now, the final outcome will be by combination of online questionnaire and Nadipariksha by the Ayurvedic doctor. Nadipariksha will be carried out during the workshop.
Those who will only fill the online questionnaire and not attending the workshop are requested to take an appointment for Nadipariksha at
, to get the report.
