Vatavyadhi (diseases caused by vitiation of Vata) are one of the most prevailing health problems and Gridhrasi (disease in which person walk like Vulture) is one among them. It is one of the painful conditions, where pain from the Sphik (Lumbar region) is radiates up to the Pada (Foot) through the posterior aspect of Kati (back), Prusta (thoracic region), Janu (knee) and Jangha (calf region) region. Gridharasi can be correlated with Sciatica based on symptoms. Basti (enema) is considered as an Ardhachikitsa (Half line of treatment) in Ayurveda treatment modalities; in present study Matra Basti is selected. Vajigandhadi Taila mentioned by Yogratnakara was used for the Basti karma which contains Erandataila (oil extracted from Ricinus communis), Ashwagandha (Withania somnífera), Bala (Sida CordifoliaI, Bilva (AegleMarmelos) and Dashmoola which exert Vatahara and Vedanasthapaka (pain killer) action. Ashwgandha acts as Rasayana (rejuvenator) and also causes defensive action on pain. Tila tail (sesame oil) when processed with drugs (Murchita Tila Taila) acts as Sarvarogapaham (Useful in all diseases). 30 patients of Gridhrasi were randomly divided in to two groups. In Group A, patients received nine days treatment of Vajigandhadi Taila Matra Basti while in Group B, patients were treated with Moorchita Tila Taila Matra Basti for nine days. In present study both groups showed statistically significant result in subjective parameters like Ruk (Pain), Toda (Pricking Sensation), Stambha (Stiffness), Spandana (Muscle Twitcing/Fasciculation ) as P < 0.0001 and objective parameters Straight Leg Raising test and Bragards Test P< 0.001 except Knee Jerk and Ankle Jerk as p=1. Group A(Vajigandhadi Taila Matrabasti) clinically showed slightly better response than group B (Tila Taila Matra basti) without much statistical significance
