Abstract

In the management of various ophthalmic disorders Kriyakalpa plays an important role. Netrakriyakalpa like Tarpana, Putapaka, Ashchyotana, Seka, Anjana, Pindi, Bidalaka all these procedures have very fast action on target tissues of eye. Among the Netrakriyakalpa Anjana is the one which had tremendous importance in both Healthy people (as a cosmetic preparation) as well as in ophthalmic patients. Moreover, to this, there are other few Aushadakalpanas which are even indicated in systemic diseases too i.e., Vishamajwara, Kaamala, Unmada, Apasmara. Moorcha, Grahabaada, and even Sthanika Visha Chikitsa can be done through the usage of Anjana. Anjana is the only Kriyakalpa which is mentioned to treat ocular disease as well as Systemic diseases, but due to lack of critical analysis in treating systemic diseases, it is lagging behind in the usage of clinical practises and although it is only Kriyakalpa mentioned in Dinacharya. So here all efforts has been made to explain the probable mode of action of Anjana in systemic diseases though there are barriers to it, meanwhile how barrier will become boon for systemic circulation will be overviewed.
