Smita Jha*, Sachin G. Khedikar.

Abstract
Background:Chakra (plexus) are the energy points which are nodes in the subtle body described in Yogic science which are six in number. Manipur Chakra is 3rd among Shad Chakra (six plexus) which is also called Solar plexus. According to modern anatomy these Chakra are the part of autonomic nervous system and are formed from the medial division of sympathetic ganglia. Manipur Chakra has control on several functions of digestive system which is even affected by psychosomatic disorders. Aim: To analyze the inuence of Manipur Chakra on Annavaha Srotas (gastro intestinal tract). Materials & Methods: The literature of Yogic compendia as well as contemporary science and relevant research papers are thoroughly analyzed to interpret the inuence of Manipur Chakra on Annavaha Srotas. Results: The position of Manipura Chakra is stated as being either behind the navel or the solar plexus. It is considered to be the center of dynamism, energy, willpower and achievement which radiates Prana (vital power). It is associated with the power of re and digestion, as well as with the sense of sight and the action of movement. The visceras of Annavaha Srotas are supplied mainly by coeliac plexus which is comparable with Manipur Chakra. Yogic practice of Asanas like Vajrasana, Shashankasana, Ushtrasana, Marjariasana, Padhastasana, Dhanurasana, Trikonasana, Pawanmuktasana, Ardhamatsyendrasana, Mayurasana and Paschimottanasana are helpful in regulating the functions of Manipura Chakra which indirectly inuence Annavaha Srotas. Conclusion: The key to normal physiology is proper functioning of the bodily organs which in turn is a key for a person to be healthy. Digestive system is also affected by psychosomatic disorders which may result in one of its many metabolic disorders manifestation hence knowledge of Manipur Chakra and its importance in prevention and management of Annavaha Srotas disorders can be a new instinct.

Key words: Annavaha Srotas (Gastro Intestinal Tract), Coeliac Plexus, Manipur Chakra, Yoga
