ABSTRACT Basic principles are the cause of invention and development. Ayurved is the base and origin of modern medicine and surgery. It is the oldest system of medicine that properly defines health and Treatment. Ayurved is composed of preventive, curative and well-planned dietary regimen or protocol for each diseases and protocol or procedures. Bheshaja, Kshyara, Agnikarma and Shashtrakarma chikitsa are known as the curative treatment in Ayurved. Agnikarma is the best among the parasurgical procedures or among Chaturbidha Chikitsa-Upakrama. Agni destroys the diseases and prevents reoccurrence. The father of modern health science, Hippocrates quoted that, “The diseases which medicines do not cure, iron cures; those which iron cannot cure, fire cures; and those which fire cannot cure, are to be reckoned wholly incurable. In the ancient India during the Vedic and Samhita period, the Ayurved scholars knew the concept of heat and its therapeutic uses over human body in oral cavity and even in the adnexa of eye in their disease condition. Regarding this, the detailed literature is available in different Samhita of Ayurved. The Cauterisation and its different forms are the developed state of Ancient Agnikarma. In both system of medicine, the heat therapy or Agnikarma is considered as the best treatment modality. Now a day, it is one of the unavoidable treatment modality in the surgical field. Maharshi-Sushruta (1500 BC) is considered as the father of Surgery. A detailed study that is the property, indications, contraindication, complication, preoperative, operative and postoperative care, along with the site of Agnikarma are available in his Samhita. Our Ayurvedic scholars even knew the application of Agnikarma in the Urdhwajatrugata roga that is application of therapeutic Agni or heat in the disease of Eye and its adnexa, Ear, Nose, Oral cavity and in headache. Cauterisation, electro cautery, diathermy, radiation and LASER therapy are the recent development based on Agnikarma. Though it is highly developed in Modern surgery, still we the Ayurved Scholars fails to provide its place in surgery of Ayurved and we have failed to develop it like the modern surgery did. Therefore, it is very essential to develop the acceptable Agnikarma procedure and to develop a Protocol or SOP in the Ayurvedic Surgical field.
