KRIYA SHARIR

DEPARTMENT OF KRIYA SHARIR

    INTRODUCTION

    Kriya sharir is the fundamental subject of Ayurveda, which initiates the learning of Ayurveda at primary level for the students of first BAMS and application of fundamental principles in practice for scholars. After passing XII examination and CET clearance students are conscious and a bit confused before coming to Ayurveda field as it is having a different platform of philosophies and thought processes. There comes the role of Kriya Sharir faculties to make students familiar with Ayurvedic concepts and terminologies in scientific and applied way. Kriya Sharir is the subject which deals with basic knowledge of Ayurveda including fundamental principles and Siddhantas as well as clinical examination of normal individual. At BAMS level all the concepts and fundamentals are familiar but overall conceptual understanding lacks behind. At postgraduate level these concepts need a different vision to understand and implement in practice. The definitions and terminologies of basic concepts need to explore.

    Our aim is to highlight this basic knowledge and to give new scientific approach to UG and PG students to polish their skills of Ayurveda and making them compatible to apply it in clinical practice.
