Though entire universe is a teacher, the process of education starts and continues institutionally in the present day world of competitiveness. To 'compete' means to strive against other or being able to do better than others to secure a position in the given field.
The Ayurvedic science, which is developing in the modern era, still has its roots and branches embedded in the age old Samhitas, which are like diamonds, which will never lose its properties though the time marches. For all Ayurvedic competitive examinations and for knowledge in Ayurveda the prime source is Sambitas in which Brihattrayi (Charaka, Susruta and Astanga Hridaya) principle are the edicts.
Keeping this in view, with the experience of coaching the students for last 7 years, I felt it is essential to have perfect subject knowledge of 'Brihattrayi' to deal with any competitive exam in this field. Some of the entrances like GAU, Jamnagar, NIA Jaipur are mostly based on samhitas. This book has been designed to encourage the reader to read samhitas more and to inculcate the original thought, where by he can deal with any sort of questions. This book is useful not only for P. G. entrances and for other competitive examinations, it is also useful as a quick review of Brihattrayi for scholars, teachers as well as for researchers.
To have more depth of the subject and to have an edge, the most important commentaries like Ayurveda Deepika of Chakrapani, Nibandha Sangraha of Dalhana and Sarvangaa sundara of Aruna Dutta are followed extensively.
