Abstract

Agni is the principal component of the body for every physiology. The metabolism, catabolism, transformation, digestion, destruction of toxins all are brought about by Agni. In sort Agni is life, when agni is lost there will be end of life. Its functions at various levels and intensities bring normal continuity of life. As long as Agni functions normally inside the body the person continues to live. Normal and optimized property of Agni provided good health, life span, strength, nourishment. The goodness of Agni is expressed by proper Prabha, Varna and right functioning of Ojas. If the functioning of Agni gets deteriorated then all the goodness in the body will be lost. The body gets open to various diseases and life ends due to deterioration of vital functions.
