Dhamanī (धमनी, “arteries”) are the channels which carry blood forcefully (pulsating) from heart to different organs. Sirā (‘veins’) are those which bring blood back to heart slowly. Between these two are keśikā (‘capillaries’) which spread like minute webs and through which, rasa (‘nutrient material or serum’) oozes to the tissues.
