The basic understanding of the concept of Tridosha is very much essential to understand the fundamental aspect of disease manifestation. Human body is developed by the confluence of Doshas, Dhatu and Mala along with Indriya, Atma and Manas. Doshas are the source for homeostasis when they are normal and produce disease during their disequilibrium state. These are of two types namely [a] sharirika(somatic) i.e. vata, pitta, kapha and [b] Manasika( psychological) .i.e. Rajas and Tamas. In healthy individuals each doshas performs certain specific functions depending on their Pramana(quantity) ,Guna (quality) and Karmas (function) and any variation in any of these leads to development of diseases. Dosha vitiation may takes place due to external and internal factors and causes either exacerbation, depletion, upper movement, lower movement, haphazard movement and obstruction to their movements. This leads to the movement of doshas from gastrointestinal tract to other body parts and produces diseases.

Key words: Dosha, Dhatu, Mala, Shakha.
