Abstract

CONCEPT OF VATASHAYA- A REVIEW

Nidhi Maurya*, Gyanadatta Pradhan, Pinki Maheshwari, Sunita Kumari, Arvind Kumar and Divya Nidhi

ABSTRACT

Vatashaya has always been a topic of debate since ages. Many Acharya including Sushruta, Sharangdhar, Vagbhatta and many others have given their respective views on this topic after proper analysis. Sharangdhar has specifically shown a keen interest in this topic and he is among the many learned scholars who has specifically described the topic and also has elaborated his view regarding Vatashaya. In this article we will be discussing the different correlations which have been recommended for Vatashaya by different Acharya and scholars. Ashaya has been described as “adhar” or a receptacle. It suggests that Ashaya is a hollow space where Dosha, Dhatu, Mala, Mootra etc. reside and do their natural karma. Thus, vatashaya – as the name suggests is a place where vaata resides and so the name vatashaya. Vatashaya has been correlated with phuphphus (lungs), transverse colon or dhamni (artery) in Shabdarthpaarishadyam by DamodarsharmaGaur. Dr. Ghanekar has also correlated vatashaya with phuphphus and transverse colon. Shabdarthparishadyam has explained vatashaya in the context of Sthoolantra and its different parts.

Keywords: Ashaya, Sankhya Sharir, vatashaya, Colon, Pakvashay etc.
