Applied aspect of anujyoti indriya adhyaya W.S.R. Arista
Hari Krishna Shriwas
Anujyoti explicates the signs and symptoms of imminent death due to the diminution of Agni (factor responsible for digestion and metabolism). The components of life like lifespan, strength, complexion, enthusiasm, health, growth, luster, and immunity are dependent upon the status of Agni. Diminution of its power causes generalized symptoms indicative of imminent death. Declaration of the estimated time for death might be based on the experience of many experts of that time, which can now be reestablished in light of present scientific developments. The clinical signs and symptoms given in this chapter are useful as additional information for the assessment of prognosis.
