Improper education and lack of integrity in education lead to…
A strong poison also becomes the best drug by proper administration and knowledge, but on the other hand even the best drug is reduced to sharp poison, if administered improperly by the ignorant. The wise person desiring for long life and health should not take any medicine administered by ignorant physician (quack). A man’s fortune may have them survive Indra’s thunderbolt, even when struck on head, but even their fortune cannot save them from an ignorant physician’s medicine prescribed. A foolish doctor with half knowledge, who regarding himself as wise because of ego and ignorance is a mrtyukaraka (signifier of death). He administers medicines to the afflicted, bedridden, faithful patient and they fall into hell. The patient, even on talking with this kind of physician that is dharmahina (devoid of virtue, who is a sinner, personified death, and wicked), will die. A foolish, ignorant doctor should never cheat the patient by taking their property or money. For that doctor, it is best for them to drink serpent poison or the intake of boiling decocted copper or the swallowing of red hot iron balls. Acceptance of medicine from one putting on the robe of scholars is never good. A doctor should always be putting his efforts in learning, be intelligent, and have a thirst for knowledge.
Charaka Samhita Sutrasthana Chapter 1 Verse #126-132
Originally Ayurveda comes from a place of integrity in every manner.
