There is nothing anyconfusion among Ayurvedic Acharyas about the location of Mana. Allthe Ayurvedic Acharyas have directly or indirectly accepted that thelocation of Mana is Hridya (heart) and it is one of the essentialelements for the intelligence. A person will always be in the dark if hismind is not fully developed, for example- a person suffering fromUnmad (mental illness) cannot develop his life perfectly, similarly aperson whose mind is sharp can concentrate on every minute objects.Aims & Objective: The aim of this study the role of Mana in sense of normal health.
