About the Book

STUDIES ON MEDICINAL PLANTS &
DRUGS IN DHAVANTARI NIGHANTU

The subject matter of the work is the studies of the medicinal plants recorded in the compilation of Dhanvantari Nighantu. The compilation in one of the oldest available Nighantu and the topmost authority on the subject of Ayurvedic botany and the pharmacodynamical actions of drugs on human body. To understand the arrangements of the subject (of identification) and confirmation of plants of this Nighantu, a particular method is adopted in this work and unless it is carefully studied, the work cannot be understood thoroughly. The author has explained this method under the heading "Proforma".

Two chapters with comments by Late Vd. D.K. Kamat were published in 1972 and in 1979. Due to paucity of funds the Sanskrit text was not included at that time. In the present edition all the chapters with Sanskrit text, with different readings from various manuscripts and books, English translation of the text and notes, latest nomenclatures changes of the plants are included.

Testimonials
Thank you very much. Your sale prices are wonderful.
Michael, USA
Kailash Raj’s art, as always, is marvelous. We are so grateful to you for allowing your team to do these special canvases for us. Rarely do we see this caliber of art in modern times. Kailash Ji has taken the Swaminaryan monks’ suggestions to heart and executed each one with accuracy and a spiritual touch.
