One of the verse in Charak Samhita states that,
दीर्घमायुर्यशःस्वास्थ्यं त्रिवर्गंचापिपुष्कलम् |
सिद्धिंचानुत्तमांलोकेप्राप्नोतिविधिनापठन् ||
- चरक संहिता सिद्धिस्थान १२/३५

By the systematic study of this treatise (Charak Samhita) a person achieves deerghayu (longevity), yasha (fame), swasthya (health), trivarga (dharma, artha and kama /the three basic desires of life) and pushkala (moksha / salvation) as well as siddhi (professional accomplishment) also in this world.
