Preface

We are extremely happy to present this book for students and enthusiastic readers of Ayurveda. It is very essential that one should study the history of this great ancient healing science made the progress form magico religious aspects to the present day scientific aspect. It is also interesting to know how the education of Ayurveda developed from the ancient guru-kula system to the present day institutional education affiliated with various Universities.

Many alternative healing sciences in the world are as ancient as that of Ayurveda. However the difference is that Ayurveda is based upon important philosophies described by various ancient sages or rishis. Our environment is full of many entities. The Universe surrounding us is also a mystery to the mankind from the time immemorable. Many scientists have therefore put forward various theories to solve this riddle. These theories are the famous Darshanas or ways to find the ultimate truth.

This book has been written not only for the students of Ayurveda in India but also for the students of New England Institute of Ayurvedic Medicine Boston and California College of Ayurveda and other students in Europe like Sewa Academie in Germany.

We are very fortunate that our friend and renowned Yoga teacher Mukunda Stiles has edited the entire manuscript. He has made necessary changes suitable for American and European readers. Mukunda is co-founder of American Yoga College director of Yoga therapy and Ayurvedic Yoga Therapy programs at the international Ayurvedic Institute in Boston U.S.A we are also thankful to Dr. David frawley director American institute of Vedic studies. He is our friend philosopher & Guide since last twenty years.

Shambhu, Brooklyn
I wanted to let you know that the books arrived yesterday in excellent condition. Many, many thanks for the very rapid response. My husband had purchased many years ago a Kâshî Sanskrit Series edition of Nâgesha’s work that lacked the second volume. Delighted to have found the entire work — and in the original edition.
Cheryl, Portland.
I received a sterling silver cuff and ring. Both are more beautiful than I imagined. They came in a beautiful box; I will treasure them. The items here are made by artists.. and the shipping was faster than I expected.
