The disease is of twelve* kinds, viz., Vata-kunda-lika, Ashthila, Vata-vasti Mutratita, (Mutra-) Jathara, Mutrotsanga, (Mutra-)Kshaya, Mutra-granthi, Mutra-s'ukra, Ushna-vata and the two forms of (viz, Kaphaja and Pittaja) Mutraukasada. 2.

Symptoms Of Vata-Kundalika

The bodily Vayu deranged and aggravated through an extremely parched condition or through the voluntary repression of an urging towards micturition affects and retains the urine in the bladder, causing it to revolve in eddies within the cavity of that organ. It allows the urine to pass in small quantity or (even) to dribble out in drops with pain. This disease is known as Vata-kundalika and is of a violent type. 3.


The deranged and aggravated bodily Vayu incarcerated or lodged in the region lying between the bladder and the anus gives rise to a thick lumpy tumour like a pebble (Ashthila), which is hard and non-shifting in its character, producing suppression of stool, urine and flatus, distension of the abdomen and pain in the bladder. It is known as Vatashthila. 4.


The bodily Vayu in the locality, aggravated by a voluntary repression of a propulsion to urination enters into the bladder of the ignorant person doing the same and also obstructs the orifice of that organ causing retention of urine with an oppressive pain in the bladder and loins. The disease is known as Va'ta-vasti and is extremely hard to cure. 5.

* Madhava reads thirteen different kinds of this disease. He reads only one kind of Mutra-sada and adds Vid-vighata and Vasti-kundala.


The urine of a person voluntarily suppressing it does not flow out at all or only dribbles out in drops or in scanty jets with slight pain, when he strains. The disease is called Mutra'tita. 6.


The vital Apana Vayu is deranged and aggravated by the Udavarta produced by a checked desire for urination and completely fills up and distends, with an excruciating pain in the abdomen below the umbilicus. The disease is called Mutra-jathara and the lower orifices* {viz. the anus and the urethra) are obstructed in this disease. 7.


The disease in which the stream of urine gliding along the bladder and urethra is gradually emitted in scanty jets or runs down the exterior surface of the glan penis with blood, whether with or without pain, is called Mutrotsanga (lit. gliding urination) and is an outcome of the deranged and aggravated action of the bodily Vayu. 8.

Mutra-Kshayaand Mutra-Granthi

The deranged and aggravated Pitta and Vayu in the bladder of an extremely fatigued person already suffering from an extreme parchedness of organism, finds lodgement in the bladder producing, in concert, a sensation of local burning and pain attended with a scanty accumulation of urine in the cavity of the organ (lit. absence of micturition). The disease which can be made to yeild only to the virtue of therapeutic agents the neck of the bladder is obstructed, with the greatest difficulty is called Mutra-kshaya. A small round painful fixed Granthi suddenly occurring on the interior side (of the orifice) of the bladder and exhibiting by its characteristic pain, etc., all the symptoms of the presence of gravels (urinary calculii) in that organ, and which stands completely obstructing its orifice without letting out a single drop of urine, or admits only of its being dribbled out in scanty jets, is called Mutra-granthi. 5-10.
