Abstract: The basic theory of srotas is mentioned in ayurved by various aacharyas like Charak, Sushrut and Vagbhat. By its essential aspect, srotas is divided in to Bahirmukha srotas and Antarmukha srotas. This categorization is mentioned by Charakacharya and Sushrutacharya. But Ashtanghridaykar i.e. Vagbhatacharya has explained the concept of Mahasrotas. This concept of Mahasrotas is explained in Ashtang Hriday Sutrasthan 12th adhyaya and 46th shloka. According to Vagbhatacharya, he has used the phrase Antahkoshtha. Antahkostha is not anything but Mahasrotas. This Antahkostha is present in the ashraya of Amashay and Pakwashay. So, this Mahasrotas is considered as the third type of srotas along with antarmukha srotas and bahirmukha srotas according to Ashtanghridaykar. This srotas is biggest, so it is called as Mahasrotas. As far as anatomy concerns, this Mahasrotas can be taken as alimentary or digestive canal along with its components. According to Sushrutacharya, mahasrotas is termed under the perception of Annavaha Srotas. This annvaha srotas can be taken as digestive system as per the modern anatomical aspect. So, Brihatrayi in Ayurved has given more stress on the srotas concept. In that also, on the Mahasrotas which can be compared and taken as annavahasrotas. So, Mahasrotas can be taken as the organs involved in alimentary system or digestive system. Anatarmukh srotas are 11pairs as per Sushrutacharya and 13 according to Charakacharya. Bahirmukh srotas are 9 in males and 12 in females. Srotas are also termed as one of the rogmarga. So, study of basic aspect of srotas is essential.
