Abstract

Though the references to the heart are available in the ancient Indian Literature including the Vedas and Puranas, the collection of facts and the presentation efforts have been made in the present context. The Ayurveda samhitas have described anatomical and physiological concepts of Srotas (channels) broadly. Srotas mainly regulates process of circulation in human body. Rasa (plasma, lymph) has its primary seat in Hridaya (heart). Due to the integrated function of Vyana vayu (biological functioning entity) the Rasa dhatu (tissue entity) is continuously circulating throughout the entire body. Srotas are describe as structural and functional unit of the body designed to carry all specific materials, hormones, enzymes, molecules, massages, impulses, emotions and thoughts. It is such a minute supply that is not seen but visible by their action or by functioning that occurs. As in texts Dhamni (artery) and Sira (vein) are more resembled with Srotas by functioning level as of transportation but these three are different from each other. Though they are innumerable but for convenience they are divided into several. Acharya Charaka, Sushrut and Astang Hridaya mentions Hridaya and the ten Dhamanis as the Moola (Root/cardinal organs) of this Srotas. On comparison of both the aspects we find that heart and blood vessels are the major component of both cardio vascular system and Rasavah Srotas(channels circulating plasma, lymph). So, in this article is an attempt was made to elaborate the concept of Rasavaha Srtoas in detail and its resemblance with cardiovascular system, and was also tried to point out the physiological involvement of some other organs to the system
