The eye-ball (Nayana-Budbuda) is two fingers (about an inch) in transverse diameter, about the breadth of one’s own thumb in depth (Sagittal diameter), and two fingers and a half all round (in circumference). The eye-ball is almost round in shape and resembles the teat of a cow. It is made up of all the (five) elements of which the universe is built up.

  1. The element of the ‘solid’ earth (Bhu) contributes to the formation of its muscles,
  2. the element of ‘heat’ (Agni or Tejas) is in the blood (that courses in its veins and arteries),
  3. ‘the gaseous element’ (Vāyu) contributes to the formation of the black part (Iris, etc.) in which the pupil is situated,
  4. the fluid element (Jala) preponderates in the-lucid (white) part (Vitreous body)
  5. and the void (ethereal) Space (Ākāśa) is there to form lachrymal or the other ducts or sacs (Aśrumārga) through which the secretions are discharged.
