Shukra is an important concept in Ayurveda, the traditional Indian system of medicine. It is a Sanskrit word meaning “bright, pure, and radiant”. In Ayurveda, Shukra is used to describe both reproductive tissue and semen.

The Shukra dhatu is the seventh and final dhatu in the body’s formation cycle. It is considered to be the essence of all other dhatus and it is believed to be present in our bodies in an invisible form as ghee or clarified butter. The Shukra dhatu plays an important role in sexual health and fertility. It is associated with male potency and female fertility, as well as overall vitality and energy levels.
