The status of Agni varies in different Prakruti (Body constitution) and it also depends on the diet, environment, physical and mental
status of an individual. The status of Agni can be known by examining the Jarana Shakti (Digestive capacity) of an individual. The six
factors told in Jeerna Ahara Lakshana (Signs and symptoms of proper digestion) will help in assessing the Jarana Shakti and in turn
the status of Jatharagni. The research was under taken to analyze the Jatharagni in different Prakruti individuals in Chaitra and
Vaishaka Masa. Prakruti of the students was assessed using Standard format and those individuals having Vata, Pitta, Kapha
predominance were selected. A self prepared scale was prepared to assess the Jeerna Ahara Lakshana. Jataragni status was assessed
on a particular day by due consideration of the menu of their three grand meals. The environmental conditions like rain humidity,
wind speed was noted down of that particular day.
Number of individuals having Avara Udgara Shudhi, Avara Utsaha, Avara Laghuta and Avara Ksut was comparatively more in
Vaishaka Masa than in Chaitra Masa which may be due to the effect of increased wind speed and rain showers in Vaishaka Masa,
which effected over the body resulting in depletion of the Jataragni and also lead in increased number of individuals with Madhyama
Agni in Vaishaka Masa than Chaitra Masa. None of the individuals had Avara status of agni due to presence of Sthira Upachita
Dhatu and Pradipta Jatharagni in Youvana Avastha and cold environment.
