द्रव्यगुणसूत्रम Dravyagunasutram (Aphorisms on Dravyaguna)
द्रव्यगुणसूत्रम Dravyagunasutram (Aphorisms on Dravyaguna)
Description
From the Book:

On Padarthas

Now beings the enquiry into (the nature and scope of) Dravyaguna (a division of Ayurveda). Dravyaguna deals with the study of properties, actions and uses of dravyas (dietary substances as well as drugs).

The word 'guna' in 'Dravyaguna' denotes characters in general and as such (is not restricted technically to qualities only but) incorporates action etc. as well.

Here 'Rasadi' denotes rasa, vipaka, virya and prabhava while 'Karmadi' denotes samyoga, prayoga and karma. Namarupajnana is understood by 'Dravya' itself. Thus 'Dravyaguna' represents all the topics related to dravya in concise form.

Ayurveda has eight divisions-thus said the earlier great sages. At present, however, it has sixteen divisions.

The sages of the ancient age like Caraka, Susruta, Vagbhata etc described Ayurveda as 'astanga' (having eight divisions). According to this, the eight divisions are-kayacikitsa, salya, salakya, kaumarabhrtya, agadatantra, bhutavidya, rasayana and vajikarana. Out of them one particular speciality was declared as the chief one in different schools such as kayacikitsa, salya, salakya, kaumarabhrtya in the schools of Caraka, Susruta, Nimi and Kasyapa respectively. There also developed a huge literature on every anga (speciality of Ayurveda in those days most of them being not available today. Having developed, in course of time, into many new branches now Ayurveda has become sodasanga (having sixteen divisions).

The books arrived today and I have to congratulate you on such a WONDERFUL packing job! I have never, ever, received such beautifully and carefully packed items from India in all my years of ordering. Each and every book arrived in perfect shape--thanks to the extreme care you all took in double-boxing them and using very strong boxes. (Oh how I wished that other businesses in India would learn to do the same! You won't believe what some items have looked like when they've arrived!) Again, thank you very much. And rest assured that I will soon order more books. And I will also let everyone that I know, at every opportunity, how great your business and service has been for me. Truly very appreciated, Namaste.
