The coronavirus pandemic has created a psychological havoc across nations. Researchers and mental health practitioners have put in their efforts to use contemporary forms of psychological interventions and therapies for the management of mental health concerns that have arisen in the current pandemic. However, only rare attention has been paid to the principles of Ayurveda for psychological issues. Hence, the present paper aims to bring forth the forgotten but treasured principles of Ayurveda explicated in Charaka Samhita for psychological well-being and to outline some of the indigenous strategies for COVID-related psychosocial management.
