Description
About the Book:

This book presents the socio-cultural life of ancient India an the basis of data drawn from the Carakasamhita. Indian religious as well as secular literature and Greek and Chinese accounts are utilized for corroborative data. Thus a convincing picture of ancient Indian life has been constructed in which the facts noticed in Caraka are given critical analysis, interpretation and assessment for their historical value. The author found the ancient Indian medical literature a rich source of material for study and research in ancient Indian society and culture.

Testimonials

I recieved my Mahavir pendant today. It is wonderful. I was recently in Delhi and as it was a spiritual trip visiting Jain temples in Rajasthan, Agra, Rishikesh and Delhi i did not have the opportunity to shop much. The pendant is beautiful and i shall treasure it. I have attached a picture of me in India. Your country and the people will always be in my heart.

It is always a great pleasure to return to Exotic India with its exquisit artwork, books and other items. As I said several times before, Exotic India is far more than a highly professional Indian online shop; it is in fact an excellent ambassador to the world for the splendour of Indian wisdom and spirituality. I wish a happy and successful New Year 2017 to Exotic India and its employees! You can be very proud of yourself!
Dr Michael Seeber (psychiatrist and psychotherapist, Essen/Germany)
My last order arrived in a reasonable amount of time, regarding the long way it had to take! I am glad to find this and some other ayurvedic remedy, as well as books and much other things at your online-store and I am looking forward to be your customer again, some time.
