|Etymology/ Definition||विद्यात् अध्यशनं भूयो भुक्तस्योपरि भोजनम् । अ.हृ.सू. ८/३३|
|Reference||A.H.Su.8/33, C.Chi.15/233, S.Su.46/ 508|
|Literary Meaning||M / W – eating too soon after a meal ( before the last meal is digested ).|
|Implied Meaning||Immediate consumption of food before the previously consumed food gets digested properly is called Adhyas ` hana.|
Repeated consumption of food without considering Agnibala leads to various dieases.
|Elaboration||As per Aachaarya, subsequent meal should be taken after a certain period ( after 3 / 4 hours ). This allows digestion of previously consumed food. If a person consumes food repeatedly before the previous meals is digested, it creates vitiation of Agni ( digestive power ), which leads to various diseases. It vitiates Grahan`ee ( stomach – seat of digestive power ) ( C. Su. 25 / 40 ).|
Adhyas ` hana is a causative factor for various diseases e. g. Atisaara ( diarrhoea ), Pittaja Udara ( Ascites ), Krimiroga ( worm infestation ) etc.
