             Basti karma is the most powerful of the five main procedures of Panchakarma. The literal meaning of basti is bladder.
             It expels the vitiated doshas rapidly and easily from the body and also causes reducing as well as nourishing the body very fastly.In ancient times, bladders of various animals were used to administer this procedure.
             Basti is a type of treatment for augmented VATA dosha. In this type of treatment, medicated decoction and oils are passed through the anus, with the help of specially made basti instruments. This procedure pulls out the vitiated doshas, especially vayu from pakvashaya i.e. the lower gastro-intestinal tract.
             Properly administered basti helps to rejuvenate the body, provides strength and long life, and improves the complexion and the voice.
