A Bit About Shankh-Prakshalana

The term "Shankhaprakshalana" comprises two words: "Shankha," meaning "conch," and "prakshalana," signifying complete washing. "Shankha" symbolizes the entire alimentary canal, spanning from the mouth to the anus. This practice is a component of "kaya kalpa," an Ayurvedic method for physical purification and transformation, wherein "kaya" denotes body and "kalpa" refers to transformation. Shankha-prakshalana involves cleansing the intestinal tract by expelling impurities using saline water.
