Abstract: In every science, there exists certain fundamental theories. Exploring these fundamental theories without losing its essence is an important process for the development of every science. It is recommended that understanding the fundamental theories in different ways helps enhancement of science than inventing a new theory. In current scenario, Ayurveda needs to be studied and applied in a better way by comprising its basic theories. One of the basics of Ayurveda is Samanya visesha theory directly explained in Charaka Samhita and it acts as a key component to disclose profound knowledge of Ayurveda. In Ayurveda, it is explained in a holistic way considering its subjectivity and objectivity. But it is doubtful that all factors of Samanya visesha theory get an equal importance and understood in a better way. So, this explorative conceptual literary study aims to unravel a different aspect of Samanya visesha siddhanta mentioned in Charaka Samhita associated with Tridosha siddhanta by considering its description based on systems biology which is an emerging new science having an interdisciplinary holistic approach with respect to the reductionist approach of conventional science. This study definitely enlightens the path of exploring the Samanya visesha and Tridosha principles based on systems biology without losing its inner core which will propel the momentum of development in Ayurveda, resulting in better acceptance and application of Ayurveda.
