The term “Nadi” is derived from Nad Dhatu in Sanskrit which means to flow something inside a structure. These are said to be 3.50.000 in the human body, of these the principal ones are ten. Among these Ida, Pingala and Sushumna are the chief. Though Sushumna is hidden, along with Ida and Pingala these three Nadis meet at Triveni point which lies at the site of Adnya Chakra behind the centre of two eyebrows. The extensive description of these Nadis is established in Yogic compendia but their functional and spiritual aspects are well enlightened there. In order to identify structures related to these Nadis this study was initiated through literature search from Yogic compendia as well as texts of contemporary science. The Nadis are comparable with nervous system of our body. It is seen that Ida, Pingala and Sushumna shows structural similarities between left, right sympathetic trunk and Spinal cord respectively.
