Description
Foreword

Present time is observing a tremendous growth and acceptance of Ayurveda. This science having its origin in Indian subcontinent is now headed to conquer rest of the world. Previously only the lifestyle aspect of Ayurveda got propagate, now the happiest thing is that the curative aspect of Ayurveda is being viewed by different personalities belonging to different fields. In many of the countries works are being carried out to explore Ayurveda by going through its classical literature which is in Sanskrit. At the same time it's not possible for each and every one to go through Ayurveda literature due to inability of them to read and understand Sanskrit literature. Those most interested do learn it and continue further their reading of Ayurveda, rest a bigger part that can't learn Sanskrit start to look for the translated books.

In the present scenario there are plenty of books available to quench to basic thirst of the needy. After quenching their basic thirst for those who are searching for more information on a particular subject or topic, here is a book related to Panchakarma. Snehana is a basic procedure related to Panchakarma and very important in respect of out come of Panchakarma procedures. Author of this book has made an effort to cover the topic in an all round aspect. I am sure that this book will not discourage the reader.

Introduction

Pancakarma offers a unique approach of Ayurveda to therapy with specially designed five procedures of internal purification of the body. Such purification permits the biological system to return to normalcy & to rejuvenate spontaneously & also facilitates the desired pharmacokinetic & pharmaco-therapeutic effect of medicines administered later. It eliminates toxins & stagnated malas & metabolites from the body, cleans the macro & micro channels, maximizes the absorption & metabolism of nutrients & medicines, & helps in minimizing their does & toxicity.

Pancakarma not merely a Sodhana therapy as it is understood, but also having wider range of therapeutics such Snehana, Rekhshana, Brmhana, Lekhana, Stambhana, Rasayana, Vrshya etc. it is the fastest growing Ayurvedic speciality globally due to its wider range of therapeutics and long lasting, radical relief of chronic diseases. The major contemporary specific areas of application of Pancakarma therapy are :

Pramotive and preventive health care as a part of Svasthavrtta regime.
As an integral pre-requisite of Rasayana and Vajikarana.
Curative treatment of diseases.

The Snehana therapy is the major preparatory procedure (Purvakarma) to be performed before Sodhana. The entire Sodhana procedure depends upon the proper mobilization of Dosas from the Sakha which is achieved with the help of Snehana and Svedana. Out of these two, the Snehana is a major therapy which decides the whole outcome of Sodhana procedure.

Snehana not only having an important role in Sodhana therapy but also in Samana & Brmhana therapy.

Sodhanartha Abhyantara Snehana is in practice since ancient times as a Puvakarma procedure for Sodhana Cikitsa. But the practices have been changed in some or other way in the flow of time period. Also in different regions of India, the procedure varies in the context of dose, duration and regimen. The reason for this is the does & duration is individual Specific. Mainly Agni, Koshtha, Prakrti, Dosha along with Bala, Satmya, Satva, Vaya, etc. are the factors of variables which put the physician in trouble while deciding the dose & duration for achieving adequate Snehana. After knowing all these variations, they have to be standardized.

The two main Aims of Snehana therapy are – (1) To prepare the body for expelling out the Doshas and (ii) To protect the body from the negative onslaught of Vata Dosha, after purification.

In ancient Samhita brief description about Abhyantara Snehana has been told. But what should be the dose schedule with regards to the Agni and Koshtha? Sneha is to be given in increasing or fixed dose? By which practice the Samyak Snigdha Lakshanas appear properly & timely? And where to stop Snehana were still remained imprecise. However indirect reference regarding the dose fixation according to the Agni mentioned by Caraka with an illustration that - just as cloth absorbs the water upto its capacity, then drains off the remaining. Similarly the Sneha gets digested according to the strength of Agni and drains off when exceeds the limit of Agni. Arunadatta also told that administration of Sneha without the consideration of Agni is irrational, while commenting on dose of Sneha.

Currently physicians practice Sodhanartha Abhyantara Snehana by their methods depending upon their experiences. If Snehana is not done properly, it definitely affects the Sodhana Karma performed afterwards. Hence, it is obligatory to start and increase the Sneha Matra in appropriate & judicious way considering the Koshtha and Agni of the subject.

Now a day, physician facing difficulty in deciding the proper dose and duration of Snehana. So, two main discussion points in whole concept of Abhyantara Snehana are the fixation of dose and duration. It seems that Acharyas have considered Agni as a technique to define the dose schedule for Snehana and Koshtha to decide the duration of Snehana.

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.
