Nadi Pariksha  has been said as one of the important Ashta sthana parikshas. Though, there are some physicians who are doing miracles just by examining Nadi, this system of examination in many views has became extinct now a days. The main reason for this is, now a days very little research and practice is going on regarding this technique. So, many resent samhitas and Chikitsa granthas like Sarangadhara, Yogaratnakara, etc., have highlighted Nadi pariksha. Basavarajiyam is also one of those resent treatises (19th  century), which has highlighted this ancient type of examination of the patient. Basavarajiyam is a popular Ayurvedic heritage of Andhra Pradesh written by Basavaraju, son of Namahshivaya and disciple of Ramadeshika. The author has referred many books and collected many slokas from various ancient granthas and quoted them in 25 Prakaranas along with his own views and quotations. This book was translated in Telugu language by Puvvada surya Narayana Rao and lppublished by A.B.S.publications, Rajahmundry A.P. In this paper Nadi sthanas (Location), Nadi types, Nadi Pareeksha vidhi (examination of Nadi) and its utilities in different aspects of the disease are dealt, which have been mentioned in Basavarajeeyam.
