Abstract

CONCEPT OF AGNI WITH REFERENCE TO THE ROLE OF LANGHANA IN SAMAVASTHA OF DISEASE

Dr. Shivani Bhawarekar*, Dr. Anand Kalaskar and Dr. Ruchira Virkar

Abstract

Agni is reflected in the concept of pitta in Ayurveda. The term pitta is derived from the root word „tapa‟ which means to heat or „to burn‟.[1] Agni is said to be one of the factors for a person to be alive, if agni ceases to function in the body, an individual cannot survive. Even when it gets disturbed because of different causes, it shows repercussions in the form of disease which eventually compromises the health status.[2] As per classical ayurveda text, the diseases are caused due to mandagni.[3] Agni tends to get imbalanced, due to daily consumption of hetus (causes), which leads to mandagni, that lets the food go undigested and leads to formation of ama, which is toxic in nature and leads to many disorders in body. Ama is the undigested food in the body which results from the disturbances in agni. Formation of ama in body can lead to various diseases like visuchika, alasaka, dandalsaka, amavish etc. This pandemic has taught the world the value of prevention, hence preserving agni can ensure an early prognosis in samavastha of disease and decreases the need to do regular shodhana therapies for a healthy life.

Keywords: Agni, Jatharagni, Langhana.
