Abstract

REVIEW ON CONCEPT OF HRUDAYA IN AYURVEDA WITH SPECIAL REFERENCE TO MODERN PERSPECTIVE

Dr. B. M. N. Kumar*

ABSTRACT

The term „Hrudaya‟ itself has been controversial since ages and continues to be so even today. The scholars subscribe to an astonishing range of opinions. The term has been assigned to at least a dozen organs in the body, each claim being backed by reasoning and commonsense. Ayurveda considers hrudaya as one of the vital organ of the body. As it is one among the trimarams, any injury to the hrudaya leads to severe complications & even death. Hrudaya is an organ which draws blood from all over the body and then supplies it to all parts of the body. The hrudaya being a muscular organ derives its nutrition from rasa, its oxygen from rakta and its vital energy from ojas. Its movements are controlled by vyanavata. Different references available in Ayurveda samhitas regarding situation, shape, size, colour, structure, functions etc. of hrudaya suggest that heart is the similar structure of hrudaya in modern science.

Keywords: Hrudaya, Rasa, Rakta, Heart, Artery.
