Agni, Pitta, Twacha, Bhrajak Pitta
The primary agent in the Paka (digestion, transformation) process is Agni. Food that has been ingested needs to be digested, absorbed, and assimilated; this process is carried out by the Agni. Different examples are in our classics to indicate that Pitta is the same as Agni, but some doubt arises behind this concept, that Pitta is Agni1. Since Agni is manifested in the body as Pitta, Karmas mentioned for Pitta is itself the Karma of Agni. Pathological increase in Pitta causes yellow-coloured skin and eyes and a decrease in Pitta causes loss of lustre and low glorification (Prabhahani). Pitta has five subtypes Aalochak, Ranjak, Sadhak, Pachak and Bhrajak Pitta. Bhrajak Pitta is located in the skin and its functions are regulation of body heat maintaining normal skin colour and absorption and digestion of medicine applied on the skin.
