Abstract

AN ANALYTICAL STUDY OF ADHAḤ ŚĀKHĀ PRAMĀṆA AS DESCRIBED IN BṚHATTRAYĪ

Dr. Nishi Jain*, Dr. Sunil Kumar Yadav and Dr. Santosh Kumar Mittal

ABSTRACT

Measurement of human body is always interesting since its origin. Pramāṇa means related to ‘māna’ or measurement.[1] Anthropometry in contemporary sciences also means measurements related to the human form.[2] Our sages mentioned references of Pramāṇa śārÄ«ra i.e. measurement of body parts and sub parts in terms of one’s own finger length.[3] References of pramāṇa śārÄ«ra are found in sÅ«tra sthāna of SuÅ›ruta saṃhitā[4], Vimāna Sthāna of Caraka saṃhitā[5] and ŚārÄ«ra Sthana of Aṣṭāṅga Saṃgraha[6]. Purpose of description of pramāṇa śārÄ«ra is same in every saṃhita i.e. person with standard body measures will be healthy and if not so then it indicates unhealthy conditions. Our ācārya have also described the importance and significance of body measurements.[7]
