Science always believes on principles and facts that are methodically attested and undeniably accepted, one such exceptional study of prakruti in relation to dermatoglyphics is reported here which exposes the unexplored areas of diagnosis on basis of inherent characteristics of person, there by covering one more milestone towards preventive and treatment aspect of disease. The study was conducted on 20 volunteers of each ekadoshaja prakruti.The volunteers did responded for professionally set questionnaires to generate the data. A palmer imprint was obtained by the modified Coterman’s technique. Imprints were analyzed statistically by using proper statistical data. The study satisfied the closure relation of features of prakruti with classical texts. Prakruti and dermatoglyphics can be considered under genetic control based on development of whorls, loops, archs present in imprints and inherent characters mentioned while explaining deha prakruti. The frequency of whorls was more in vatala prakruti, that of arch in pittala prakruti, that of ulnar loops in the sleshmala prakruti and there is gross similarity between qualities attributed to whorls, arch and loop and the qualities explained by our acharyas of vatala, pittala, and sleshmala prakruti.
