Srotas is a structural and functional unit of the body through which substances flow from one part to another. Each Srotas is said to associate with two organs which are termed as Srotomula. Srotomula is the most vital part of the Srotas just like the root of the tree. In classics neither the detail description about Srotomula is available nor the reason mentioned for considering particular organs as the Srotomula. Hence the present study was undertaken with the aim to assess and evaluate the relation between Srotas and its Mula. Also it is essential to compare the views of both Charaka and Sushruta regarding Srotomula. For present study relevant information regarding Srotas and its respective Dhatu from Samhitas, various texts, articles etc was compiled and interpreted. After analyzing all the conceptual material it was found that Srotomula could be considered as either the originating place, storage place, controlling place, conduction place, terminating end or the site of manifestation etc. After comparing the views of both Acharyas it was found that Charaka has narrated the concept from physiological point of view whereas Sushruta has given more emphasis on the anatomical aspect of Srotomula.
