Abstract

A REVIEW ARTICLE ON PHYSIOLOGICAL ASPECT OF “AGNI”

*Nitesh Vyas, Puneet Kumar Garg, Arpita Mathur and Brahmdutta Sharma

ABSTRACT

The term Agni, in common language, means fire or we can say the bioenergy of the body is Agni. It converts food into the form of energy which is responsible for all the vital functions of the living creative. Agni maintains its integrity and performs its vital activities, by converting- in Pakadi karmas or bio-physical or bio-chemical processes- the foods consumed in various ways- licked, masticated, drunk etc., not only into its various structural and functional constituents but also to provide the Shakti or energy necessary for proceeding with its innumerable vital activities. According to the functions and site of action, Agni has been divided into 13 types, i.e. one Jatharagni, five Bhutagniand seven Dhatvagni. Jatharagniis the most important one, which digests four types of food and transforms it into Rasa and Mala. The five. Bhutagnisact on the respective bhautikaportion of the food and thereby nourish the Bhutasin the body. The seven Dhatvagniact on the respective dhatusby which each Dhatuis broken into three parts. In this way, the entire process of transformation consists of two types of products – Prasad (essence) and Kitta (excrete). The former is taken for nourishment while the latter one is thrown out, which otherwise defiles the body if it stays longer.

Keywords: Agni, Jatharagni, Bhutagni, Dhatvagni, Sara, Kitta.
