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.

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!

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.
