Description
About the Book

Astanga Hrdaya is a land mark in the history of Ayurvedic Medicine. When there was a real need to record the previous work of Ayurveda in a comprehensive manner. Acarya Vagbhata could compile this great treatise, which occupied a place in the greater triad along with the sages Caraka and Susruta. Vagbhata is a bridge between the traditions of the ancient seers and mere Ayurvedic physicians of the middle ages. Astanga Hrdaya is the cream of the vast ocean like literature of Ayurveda. It is taken to heart by the students and teacher alike. It contains the gist of the teachings of ancient sages belonging to all schools of Ayurveda., in minimum words. Just by studying Astanga Hrdaya alone, one may be acquainted with the concepts and practices of all the schools without hunting through the dense growth of literature. He awakened scientifiuc spirit, critical faculty and confidence to this great treatise and is the most popular work of Ayurveda since its first publication.

The present work on this great expertise is a speciality work. It is a detailing work along with notes, appendices and indices. It is not a mere translation but in the form of note, explanation of the principles in common man's languages is accomplished. At times, the gist of the verse is given and more information is added where there is a need. Commentaries of Hemadri and Arundatta are followed strictly. Though, this translation is faithful to the text, wherever the text is not clear, taking help from the commentary, some freedom is taken, to present the underlying context. In many instances, a coordinating solution is worked out. This is an informative and fundamental work useful for teachers, students and researchers. Difficult words and poetic language are intentionally avoided to make the work legible. This commentary will be widely welcomed by the students and practioners alike. A legible translation of the original text helps persons to understand the charm of Ayurveda in the years prior to foreign invasions.

Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...
