All the texts related to enema only deals with cleaning of bowl and as the pre-procedure for commencing several examinations. The real questions arises is spreading the word Basti Karma with the translation as Enema Therapy is valid or just another mistake practitioners are doing. So an attempt is made to describe whether Basti should be termed as Enema Therapy or the word Enema Therapy is unable to give its true meaning as a translation.
