In Ayurveda, Agni is the base (mool) of life, which plays a key role in bio-transformation. In Ayurveda JatharAgni means digestive fire and is present in stomach and duodenum. Grahani is the main site of Agni and both are interdependent. According to Ayurveda, the small intestine is correlated to Grahani, which got its name because of its property to restrain meal. Grahani is the place where digestion and absorption takes place. It is nourished by the strength of Agni. 'Mandagni' is one type of vitiation of Agni, which means weak digestive fire.
