About the Book

 

The present day Ayurveda stands firmly on its literary pillars. These are the works of great Sages who dedicated their lives to the cause of the great science of life i.e. Ayurveda. Ashtanga Hrdayam (written by great Sage Vagbhata) is one such strong pillar. This work enjoys great popularity among the Ayurvedic fraternity and also with the general people of India. The subjects, in the work, are spread in one hundred and twenty chapters which are divided into six sections.

 

The first section (Sutrasthana) has thirty chapters in total. Explaining the meaning of word 'Sutrasthana' Vagbhata says - 'in this section of As h t an g a Hrdayam the subtle meanings (sukshma artha) of various topics are composed (sutrita)'. Among the six sections, Sutrasthana of Ashtanga Hrdayam is considered to be the best.

 

The present work is an English translation of the first section (Sutrasthana) with its original Sanskrit text. The translation includes maximum Sanskrit words (with their English meanings). Parallel references of both, Charaka Samhita and Sushruta Samhita (the two strong literary pillars of Ayurveda), are also provided in the notes after each Sanskrit shloka and its translation. At places, the quotes of other Ayurvedic classics such as Sharangdhara Samhita written by Sage Sharangdhara and Bhava Prakasha written by Sage Bhavamishra are also given. The important quotes of most popular commentaries on Ashtanga Hrdayam, Sarvanga Sundari (written by Sage Arunadatta) and Ayurved Rasayana (written by Hemadri), are provided after each shloka for easy comprehension of the classic. Many tables and charts, for summarizing various topics, are given after important topics. Useful appendices are added at the end of the book. This work will be useful for all those interested in getting acquainted with the scientific foundation of Ayurveda (the science of life).

Carl, UK.
I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
Gina, USA
My marble statue of Durga arrived today in perfect condition, it's such a beautiful statue. Thanks again for giving me a discount on it, I'm always very pleased with the items I order from you. You always have the best quality items.
