CONCEPTUAL UNDERSTANDING OF KSHARA KARMA IN SHALAKYA TANTRA
Kshara Karma, Agni Karma is known as Anushastra Karmas. Popularly understood as Para surgical procedures. They are outstanding contributions of acharya Shushruta. The surgical disorders managed these procedures with ease and comfort for both surgeon and patients. In Shalakya Tantra there is a need of adopting these procedures for effective management of disorders such as Upajihwa, Adhijihwa, Upakusha, Dantavaidharbha, three types of Rohini, Nasarsha, Karnarsha and Pakshmakopa. Kshara Karma said to be one among the Anushastra Karma explained by Acharya Shushruta which is not widely practised and popularised in Shalakya diseases. There is need of research work in this area to utilize Kshara Karma and give optimum result.
