Shareera Kriya is the specialty of ayurveda which deals with study of normal functioning of body and mind. Shareera is composed of many basic elements. ‘Kriya’ means which has motion or which can perform actions, and Shareera performs its kriya only when these basic elements maintain their equilibrium state.

This subject therefore is the base for proper understanding of Ayurveda. This subject is of great importance for a medical student to understand all other para clinical and clinical subjects. Proper knowledge of normality is very much important for assessment of abnormality and later for selection of right treatment.
