Description
Preface

In this Preface, I take the opportunity of suggesting to the reader the vast accumulation of knowledge of health and disease that the reader should expect while going through the book. I am sure that the vastness of accumulated knowledge in Ayurveda will convince him of the breadth and depth of our ancestor's observations in different fields. Ayurveda as a science belongs to a civilization which is widely accepted in other aspects such as different philosophies and sciences. Ayurveda being a practical science represents to us the positive value to life of what is accepted in theory. For instance, the term 'Samprapti' in Ayurveda means the description in detail of all the morbid processes that take place in different diseases and in different stages of the same disease. In Western medicine, the subject of Pathology deals with the same subject. In the Ayurvedic Textbooks a whole idea comprising many chapters is epitomized in a small sutra or word. It is the duty of modern commentators to explain these sutras (aphorisms) in the modem way. I have only tried this method to a very small extent. Much more remains to be done. In this book, we have tried to co-ordinate and to explain, both from the ancient and modern points of view, the Principles of Pathology in a manner that may be found most useful to an Ayurvedic student, infact, to any student of science.

In the compilation of this book, I have mainly depended upon the 'Textbook of Pathology' by Dr. Direndra Nath Banerjee, Professor of Pathology, Carmichal Medical College, Calcutta for explaining the Allopathic view point. I have quoted some chapters in extenso, from this book because I found them very concise and accurate. I accurate. I only added here and there a few comments for the understanding of the subjects by the Ayurvedic student. I am very much indebted to him for his kindly giving me his consent to make use of his book in any manner I wished. I hope the way in which the subject is dealt with will be appreciated by the students and future authors, so that a synthetic medicine may soon be evolved in India. I have acknowledged my indebtedness to others, in the body of the book whereever I had the occasion to quote from their writings. I shall be glad to receive any criticism from the readers so as to make the next addition more useful.
