General Description

The roots of ‘Śukravaha Srotas’ are the testicles and penis. Testicles synthesize the hormone testosterone and also they are the sites of spermatogenesis. Penis is the male copulatory organ through which the seminal fluid is deposited in the female reproductive tract. The factor, which is responsible for the formation of ‘Garbha’, is known as ‘Śukra’. ‘Śukra’ is distributed all over the body in the same manner in which the fat in the milk and juice in the sugar cane plant are distributed . Also, this is present in males and females. All hormones of hypothalamo-pituitary-gonadal axis can thus be included under the term ‘Śukra’. In some references, ‘Śukra’ stands for only semen.
