Dharmendra Mishra, Sunil Kumar, Shalinee Kumari Mishra


The eminent persons of Ayurveda recognized the value of knowledge related to human body and thus incorporated a separate section in their manuscripts. It was a very hard task to collect the words related to Sharir Rachana from main Ayurveda Samhita because as in other terminology terms have their unique meaning and indications, the Ayurveda terminology carries different connotations of the same words with their context while word meaning in Sanskrit is different. Unexplored terms obscure the better understanding of the subject to the students as well as become an obstacle in the way of globalization.

Keywords: Sharir Rachana, Ayurveda, lower limb
