Doshagati is discussed by charakacharya (chu.su.17) which gives great clinical importance to the diagnostic (Roga Nidan) point of view.Gati means movement and the word Doshagati implies to movement of doshas.All the movements and activites in the body ,take place dur to vata .vata is the key force behind the physiological and pathological movement of body element.Tridosha is the prime fundamental principle of Ayurveda, imbalance state of which is termed as Roga/ Vikara. Knowledge of Doshagati is a fundamental concept of Ayurveda. Its diagnostic and therapeutic usefulness is mentione d in Ayurvedic classics. In “Kiyantashirsiya Adhyaya”, Maharshi Charaka illustrated Dvividha Doshagati is Prakrut- Vikrut gati and Trividh doshagati i.e Kshaya- Sthan- Vruddhi, Urdhva- Adho- Tiryak, Shakha- Koshtha- Marmasthisandhi. Charakacharya enriched Ayurveda with the knowledge of Doshagati. To limit the subject I have focused on koshtha and shakha gati of doshas.
