Shareera kriya (Ayurveda Physiology) is the key subject in study of medical sciences. This subject provides the ground base knowledge of body, mind & senses functions and dysfunctions which helps in critical understanding of disease process and insight to disease management and prevention. Physiology is the core of medical wisdom. Its enormous contribution is responsible for the growth of medical technology and clinical management. The Department of Shareera kriya (Ayurveda Physiology) is initiated form April, 2020. This Department deals with the basic concepts, knowledge and applicability of Tridosha (Trifold functional entities – Vata, Pitta and Kapha), Sapta Dhatus (Tissues), Malas (Excretory wastes), Prakriti (concept of Genetics), Mana (Mind, cognition, memory etc), Nidra (Physiology of sleep), Oja (Physiology of Immunity) etc. The etio-pathogenesis of disease cannot be explained unless Dosha-dhatu-malas is assessed subjectively & objectively. This subject therefore is the base for proper understanding of Ayurveda and is of great importance for a medical student to understand all other para clinical and clinical subjects.
