Sunny Chandrashekhar Patil, Arjunsingh Baghel, Rambabu R Dwivedi.

Abstract
Ayurveda is the applied science related to medicine hence it gives more emphasis to the verification and validation of the facts and concepts. After reviewing the literature it becomes evident that sage physicians of Ayurveda emphasized the necessity of scientific knowledge in every regard. For the true and thorough scientific knowledge, Ayurvedic seers adopted different methods of examination and investigation (MEI) which they termed as Pariksha. For the successful accomplishment of any action it is essential to proceed after obtaining the full knowledge about it. Thus Pariksha becomes an important tool within each and every field of science as it works as method of examination and investigation which serves as a base for verification and validation of knowledge. Aptopadesha (authoritative statement), Pratyaksha (perception), Anumana (inference), Yukti (reasoning), Upamana (analogy) etc are some of the important methods used extensively in Ayurveda. These methods are similar to those described in ancient Indian Philosophy. The investigation methodology mentioned in Ayurveda is peculiar because different methods have been adopted in different contexts as per the need of the subject.

Key words: Epistemology, Examination, Investigation, Methods, Pariksha, Pramana
