15 A wise doctor's definition according to Charak Samhita

A doctor with patience, intellect, wisdom and who knows about Ayurveda is an ideal doctor. Human beings must praise him like a lord.

The caste of a doctor
After one completes his Ayurveda education the caste of the person changes. In other words it is a new life. That's why he is called Dwijati (second caste).
Then only he can be called vaidya (doctor), Being a doctor is not a family affair. A doctor son may not be a doctor.

A person who wants long life should not expect any money from Pranacharya (doctor). Never criticize and cause no harm to him.

Donate money to the doctor
A person who after being treated by the Vaidya (doctor) must pledge to donate something. If he does not contribute anything then he does does not have a right to exist in this world.

A doctor must consider all his patient like his own children. The medical profession is highest form of Dharma. A doctor must put in his sincere efforts and leave no stone unturned for treatment for the ailment.

The religious saints and munis have published Ayurvedic texts so as to attain Lord Brahma the supreme.

It is not meant for money or luxury.

A doctor who works for the betterment of humanity and not for money is highly respectable man and his position is above all.

A doctor who sells the medicine in the market gets the sand bag instead of gold.

Respect the doctor
A doctor who would save a man from life threatening disease and gives new life to the patient. There is no man as respectable as him in the world. Life is most precious thing in the world. Saving life is highest and most valuable form of charity.

Having mercy for the living beings is the highest dharma. A doctor who believes in this and does his karma. He gets all that he wants and all his wishes come true.
