Description
Preface

Personalized approach towards the patient is practiced from caraka to Hippocrates. Humoral or elemental theory can be termed as the basic concepts of temperament in all systems of medicine. It is existent in all the ancient sciences . Freud broke this trend by providing with a more psychological view of human nature . personality theories such as type , trait , humanistic, behaviourist , psychoanalytic, cognitive and psychologist theories have emerged from ancient times and continue to be presents in modern times . But still now there is no single theory can be every aspects that can explain every aspects of the complexities of human personality.

Aside from theories about personality structure and dynamics, a major area of investigation in the study of personality is how it develops in the course of a person’s lifetime and how it varies across cultures . The Freudian approach includes an extensive description of psychosexual development from birth up to adulthood . Erik Erikson outlined eight stages of development spanning the entire human lifetime, from birth to death . In Contrast , various other approaches , such as those of jung, Adler and Rogers, have rejected the notion of separate development stages. Significant difference have been found between personality development in the individualistic cultures of the west and in collectivist societies such as Japan. Cross - cultural differences may also be observed within a given society by studying the contrast between its dominant culture and its subcultures like ethnic , racial or religious groups.

Like in Ayurveda, in Siddha medicine temperament of a person acquires his or her natural character of body on the basis of three humours vatha , pitha and kapha . Homeopathy system of medicine explains miasms, the base of every disease and humoral theory is the basis for unani system of medicine.

Ayurvedic system of medicine explains prakriti in terms of sukra , sonita , i.e. Male and female hereditary factors, kalagarbhasya (time , age and condition of the uterus ) maturaharavihara (mothers diet and regimen ), pancamahabuta (influence of five elements ), influences of human race/religion, caste / family habitat , season/time age basic instincts (jatiprasakta , kula prasakta , desanpatni, vayonupatini, pratyatmanita and bala ). It covers almost all theories in the modern medical sciences . There is no doubt that Ayurvedic system of medicine provide a comprehensive , multidimensional theory of personality.

The Concept of Prakrti has remained a subject of extensive exploration in the recent past. As a result , It is now better understood in terms of its genomic and biochemical corrections and subsequent clinical applications.

This book is surely beneficial to all ayurvedic practitioner, students , researchers and all those who are interested in science.

Testimonials
I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
