It is considered as one of the three Marma sthana, and is the seat of Sarira, Buddhi, Indriya, Indriyartha, Saguna atma, Mana, etc so, any deviation in its functioning can be tremendously bereaving. Acharya Charaka, Sushruta, Vagbhata and Bhela have been unanimous regarding Hridaya being the seat of Manas and Buddhi. Hridroga is an ocean full of disease entities. In contemporary medical system, it is known as CVD i.e., Cardio-Vascular Disease.

These risk factors can be effectively tackled by the judicious adherence to Dinacharya, Ratricharya, Ritucharya, Sadvritta niyamas, etc. Even in the state of disease, compliance with Sodhana procedures and Oushadhas can lead to alleviation of disease and qualitative improvement in the state of Ayu.
