Marma is very important point in the body. Total number of marmas is 107. Sushrutacharya have explained concept of marma in Sushrut Samhita Sharirsthan 6th adhyaya. Aacharya Sushrut has mentioned a range of marma. The arrangement is based on four types by Sushrutacharya. It is given as marmaprakar (types of marma) as per Shadanga, Rachana, Parinam and Pariman. Rachanatmak (Structural) classification of marma is based on five fundamentals as Mansa, Sira, Snayu, Asthi and Sandhi. According to the basic meaning of marma as per Sushrutacharya, the marma is the site where mansa, sira, snayu, asthi and sandhi are collectively present. Indrabasti marma is present in the urdhwashakha (Upper extremity) as well as in adhoshakha (Lower extremity). In lower extremity, it is present at the point, middle of the line, joining the posterior surface of Calcaneus with the centre of the poppliteal fossa. So, it is requisite to see the basic structures as per the definition of marma given by Sushrutacharya with the help of cadaveric dissection method. So this can in point of fact identifies the modern connection of these five basic structures.
