Dhatu Sara Purusha

Article contributed by Dr Gayathri

The most purified or vital part of a Dhatu is known as Sara. Sara can also be defined as the essence of Dhatus (tissue) that provides strength and stability to the body. From birth to death, the genetic design of Tridosha, or Prakriti, never undergoes changes. As opposed to Prakriti, the Sarata of Dhatu changes from moment to moment. Variation in food, habitat, season, lifestyle can modify the Sarata of every Dhatu. If we wish to obtain good health, happiness, enjoyment, longevity, then we should pay attention to and try to maintain an equilibrium of the root factors of the body (Dosha, Dhatu and Mala).  The Sara-Asar condition of Dhatus affects physical and mental health. Charaka advises examination of the Sara of every Dhatu to understand the strength of the Dhatu as well as strength of the mind. In the Dashvidha Pariksha of Ayurveda, it has been stated that Sara Pariksha is one of the important investigations for strength. There are 8 types of Sara:

  1. Twak Sara
  2. Rakta Sara
  3. Mamsa Sara
  4. Medas Sara
  5. Asthi Sara
