Publisher’s Note

We are happy to place the book Significance of Ayurvediya Marma in the hands of learned readers. We feel happy, as a publisher every time we bring out a book, but this time it is a very special case. Because the subject matter of the book is not only very close to our heart but also very beneficial for the physicians and the public at large.

The book deals with the Marmas the very sensitive tender and vulnerable points in human body. It explains the Ayurvedic concept of Marmas, along with their anatomy, physiology, Ayurvedic Marmas with vital points in other alternative systems of medicine-Yoga, Unani, Siddha, homoeopathy and Acupuncture. The noteworthy feature of the book is that it is written by a practising Ayurvedic physician, Dr. Raakhee Mehra, presently working as a Research officer in the Department of Ayush, an apex body to promote alternative systems of medicine in India. Hope the readers will find the book very enjoyable and useful.

 

Foreword

The knowledge of vital points of the body is a defensive mechanism which enables the medicine to set the lines during management either by medicinal or surgical discipline.

A wide vision for humanity conceived by the author Dr. Raakhee Mehra in the concept f science of vital points of the human body in anatomical, physiological and pathological scientific approaches is indeed showing her talent in research field. Description of the Tri Marma; Heart, Lungs and brain under the tripod of the life and total 107 vulnerable points mentioned in Ayurveda has attracted my attention. A well presentation with visual impact in the book gives a milestone in such type of work and should be encouraged.

Moreover a trial of exploration of the subject form the various systems of medicine is an appreciable step by the author. This book is an example of such scientific research and will certainly provide a step ahead in medicinal world to the student teachers and research fellows.

Wish her all the success!

Dr. Jagdish Prasad

Testimonials

Just wanted to say thanks for everything. I am really impressed with the statue, the packaging and the service. It's absolutely beautiful!

Thank you for allowing me to shop in India from my desk in the United States!! I love your website! Om Shanthi

I finally got my nearly $300 Meenakari earrings today. They were promised in 4-6 days but it took a week for them to be shipped. Then it was 4-6 days. When I saw them I had mixed feelings. They are cute but it took me a half hour to get them in my ears as the posts are really large in diameter. I had to use vaseline and force them through and then the screw on backs (a good thing) wouldn't line up. There seems to be something inside the screw on locks that act as a securing agent. Any way most of the things I've got from ExoticIndia were gifts and acceptable.
