Preface

From time immemorial, man has been in the quest of ways and means by which he can attain ideal health, increase lon- gevity and achieve happiness. Hence he searches for foods, drugs and other practices in his day-to-day life that would help him live a life to the full, prevent sickness and delay the aging process.

A man aiming to be healthy throughout his life has to keep healthy everyday. For acquisition of perfect physical and men- tal health, it is essential to observe scrupulously a prescribed regimen everyday. Exercise, sex, sleep, personal hygiene, care of various organs, tonics, religious practices, good conduct and other daily activities are included in this regimen.

How these activities influence each organ and the whole or- ganism and help man gain perfect physical and mental health has been thoroughly discussed in the Ayurvedic literature. It also gives in detail the means of maintaining perfect health in different seasons by counteracting the deliterious effects of various environmental factors and by modifying the daily regi- men in a manner suitable for the particular season.

In this book, I have made a sincere effort to acquaint the reader with the wealth of knowledge available in Ayurvedic litera- ture on this important aspect of human life. It is essential that one should understand the meanings of some of the basic Ayurvedic medical words like vata, pitta and kapha to appre- ciate the scientific meaning underlying therein. The present book is of value to practitioners of Ayurveda, modern medi- cine, and to all those who want to keep healthy and vigorous. I am sure that anyone who puts into practice the daily and seasonal regimen as advised by our ancient masters will en- joy a long, healthy, happy and useful life.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

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
