Abstract

Marma is considered as the vital point present in the human body which has life in it and the injury to these spots leads to death or death like miseries. In our classics, 107 Marmas are explained. They are grouped separately on the basis of structural classification, based on injury consequences, based on the Pramana, & based on the location in the body. Total 44 Vaikalyakara Marmas are present in our body among which 6 are present in each Urdhwashakha namely Kakshadhara, Lohitaksha, Urvi, Aani, Koorpara and Kurcha. The location, anatomical structures in specific region and effect on injury to each Marma differs from one another.
