Description
Preface

I have found that for acquiring an accurate knowledge of Ayurveda, the student should undergo a course of pre-medical studies in the Indian method, which give him a proper estimate of the historical and philosophical back-ground necessary for the correct understanding of the subject. It is for that purpose I have devoted two sections in the first volume namely (1) Bharatiya Vijnana or The Historical Background and (2) The Darshanas or the Philosophical Background.

As I have no claim for any originality in these subjects, I have freely borrowed from reputed authors and have acknowledged my indebtedness to them indifferent places. Some of the chapters were wholly contributed by distinguished scholars to whom I owe a deep of gratitude.

Ayurveda as the Science of Life is an International subject and I hope one day, the Indian System of Medicine which is the parent of all system of medicine in the world will be studied with the reverence that it deserves as a scientific subject. It is a science, the science of sciences which ends all jealousies between individuals and wars between nations and bestows everlasting peace on humanity.

Dear friends, I just placed my order for one Radhe-Shyam copper bangle and I am looking forward to seeing the quality of your products. I have been searching for years for this price range of bangle with 'Radhe Radhe' or 'Radhe-Shyam'. I may add more items as I was not through shopping when I clicked on PayPal. Thanks sooo much for providing such hard-to-find and fair-priced items! Sincerely, David Briscoe

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.
