Abstract

Agni located in Pitta dosha is considered responsible for all metamorphoses taking place in the body like metabolic responses, hormonal conduct etc. According to Vagbhata, pitta has this main function videlicet pakti (digestion), ushma (maintain proper body temperature), darshan (vision), kshudha (hunger), trushna (thirst), prabha (lustre to skin), medha (intellect). Pathological increase in Pitta causes unheroic coloured skin and eyes and drop in Pitta causes loss of lustre and low glorification(prabhahani).Pitta dosha have five divisions depending on the point and mode of action. Bhrajaka pitta is considered as the division of Pitta giving the color and luster to the skin and maintaining the body temperature. Bhrajak pitta is located in skin and its functions are regulation of body heat and maintain normal skin colour and immersion and digestion of drug applied externally on skin like oil painting, lepas etc. According to modern view, the colour of skin depends upon melanin attention.
