Indriyas are the medium through which we sense the whole creation. One cannot imagine a life without indriyas. Ayurveda, the holistic science had given a wonderful explanation of perception of knowledge through indriyas or sense organs. According to Ayurveda satmya indriyartha sannikarsha (proper bondage of sense organs with its objects) is required for the correct perception of knowledge. For this to happen the coordination axis between indriyartha (object of senses), indriya (senses), manas (mind), budhi (intellect) and atma (soul) should be healthy and intact. One of the big reasons for tridosha imbalance leading to disease is improper use of sense organs or asatmyendriyarthasamyoga. This paper is dealing with the significance of asatmyendriyartha samyoga in the present era with reference to jnanendriyas (chakshurindriya, srothrendriya, ghranendriya, rasanendriya and twagindriya).
