Nasya, one of the five panchakarma acts on brain by route of nasa. Nasya administration is one of most important things in panchakarma practice. In Charaka, Sushruta and Ashtanghridaya, methodology of nasya including its types with their different dosage are well explained, but how to administer dose in details is not explained. So following this in routine nasya practice, calculated or prescribed dose is administered in one stroke. Routinely bindu is considered as drop, which actually is lesser in quantity than the actual quantity of bindu. If we go by texts, the dosages are explained in bindu pramana which becomes huge if tried to give in one stroke. So, Ashtang Sangraha had suggested to administer the prescribed dose in three divided doses. So in the present review article, the methodology by Ashtang sangraha is discussed in detail.
