Abstract: <i style="">Brhattrayi </i>or<i style=""> Caraka-Susruta-Astanghrdaya Samhitas</i> are works on Indian therapeutics based on the principles of <i style="">Tridosa</i>, which are comprised of three humours, <i style="">Vata, Pitta and Kapha</i>. The aim of this paper is to decipher the meaning of <i style="">Vata</i>, <i style="">Pitta</i> and <i style="">Kapha</i> and identify them in the allopathic terms. Modern techniques to test the blood of artery and vein origin and lymph from the lymphatic vessel may be useful to determine the states of<i style=""> Vata</i>, <i style="">Pitta</i> and <i style="">Kapha</i> and may also provide an elegant method for the diagnosis of a disease on the<i style=""> Tridosa</i> principle of Ayurveda.
