About the Author

Dr. Pulak Kanti Kar did has graduation from University of Calcutta, Post graduation in Panchakarma from Gujarat Ayurved University and Ph. D from Rajasthan Ayurved University. He has successfully performed thousands of Panchakarma in different critical diseases. He has written six valuable books on different aspects of Panchakarma. His approach and motivation to propagate Panchakarma has inclined several students and practitioners of Ayurveda to perform this therapy in clinical practice.


The principle based theories if applied in the clinical practice and show their effectiveness to mitigate the diseases, then the theories are converted into applied procedure. The principle is formed through observation, re-observation, experimentation, hypothesis, re-experimentation and conclusion. These six steps are primarily documented in different ancient medical compendium and the vivid description of any therapeutic procedure is detailed with its applied form. All the theories are having some prerogative values because of experimental depiction.

Panchakarma is a fruitful measure and its extensive efficacy is classified in different dimension to cure different types of complicated diseases. Vamana, Virechana, Niruha, Anuvasana and Nasya are the five procedures and subsequently Vamana, Virechana, Basti, Nasya and Raktamokshana are also broadly termed as Panchakarma. The qualitative effect of Panchakarma is purely detailed in a cumulative perspective. The cultivated knowledge of Panchakarma is well transmitted in the way. of applied synchronized process. The inclination towards the practice of Panchakarma is very much' essential for the Ayurvedic doctors to achieve the goal. In day to day practice, the new diseases are evolving with intense gravity and therefore to combat those, Panchakarma is an effective measure. It is not essential that all the karmas are to be performed at a time or in a specific disease, but considering the involvement of the Dosha, dhatu and mala, severity of the disease and the constitution of the individual, the respective measure is advocated following the principles; as a result of which, the outcome is extra-ordinarily beneficial.

In the ancient time it was well practiced with confidence as the Ayurvedic physicians were well acquainted about those therapies and were experts to perform and confident to arrest the adversities well in advance. In due course of time, the practice of this therapy was in a dilemma because of the non acquaintance of the principles of those therapies. The experienced physicians performed these therapies not only by the empirical ways but also maintaining the scientific entities. The appropriate choice of drugs, schedules of dose, preparation of the medicines, requirements for respective diseases were methodically pre tuned and these classical therapies were magnified in different consequences of different diseases.

The micro level analysis of Panchakarma is till unexplored in spite of several research works made in different apex and local Ayurvedic institutions. The recent generation always tries to analyse the matter in the perspective of modern lights. The enriched science behind this therapy is nowhere enlightened. This leads to call for reanalysis of the justification and efficacy of Panchakdarma in new dimension keeping the principles intact. Propagation of knowledge of Panchakarma will definitely accelerate the logical thoughts and practice with regained potentiality of the Ayurvedic physicians.

In this book, with the advent urge of the students, the thorough principles if Panchakarma have been postulated with an elaborative purview in a sequenced manner. Rhythmical study of the portion of Panchakarma of different Ayurvedic compendium has been incorporated in this book to hasten the micro analysis of the systematized study.
