The Marmas (Vital points) are very sensitive, tender and vulnerable points in human body. Injury to them leads to deformity or even to death. Therefore, the knowledge of the Marmas is very essential for physicians and surgeons. This book is an attempt in this direction. Based on 54 verses of Suśruta Saṃhitā Śārīra, Chapter 6, it explains the Ayurvedic concept of Marmas, along with their various types, location in the body, nature, their size, anatomy, physiology, pathology and possible treatments. It also tries to correlate the Ayurvedic Marmas with the vital points in other alternative systems of medicine—Yoga, Unani, Siddha, Homoeopathy and Acupuncture.
