About the Book

STUDIES ON MEDICINAL PLANTS &
DRUGS IN DHAVANTARI NIGHANTU

The subject matter of the work is the studies of the medicinal plants recorded in the compilation of Dhanvantari Nighantu. The compilation in one of the oldest available Nighantu and the topmost authority on the subject of Ayurvedic botany and the pharmacodynamical actions of drugs on human body. To understand the arrangements of the subject (of identification) and confirmation of plants of this Nighantu, a particular method is adopted in this work and unless it is carefully studied, the work cannot be understood thoroughly. The author has explained this method under the heading "Proforma".

Two chapters with comments by Late Vd. D.K. Kamat were published in 1972 and in 1979. Due to paucity of funds the Sanskrit text was not included at that time. In the present edition all the chapters with Sanskrit text, with different readings from various manuscripts and books, English translation of the text and notes, latest nomenclatures changes of the plants are included.

I am very thankful to you for keeping such rare and quality books, DVDs, and CDs of classical music and even Dhrupad which is almost unbelievable. I hope you continue to be this good in your helpfulness. I have found books about rare cultural heritage such as Kodava samaj, Dhrupad and other DVDs and CDs in addition to the beautiful sarees I have from your business, actually business is not the right word, but for lack of a word I am using this.

Vana, Australia
I was pleased to chance upon your site last year though the name threw me at first! I have ordered several books on Indian theatre and performance, which I haven't found elsewhere (including Amazon) or were unbelievably exorbitantly priced first editions etc. I appreciate how well you pack the books in your distinctive protective packaging for international and domestic mailing (for I order books for India delivery as well) and the speed with which my order is delivered, well within the indicated time. Good work!
