About the Book

Camatkara Cintamani of Lolimbaraja is an important work both from medical point of view as well as for its poetic merits. Moreover this book has beautifully portrayed Lolimbaraja's wife Ratnakala.

Utility of various formulae of Camatkara Cintamani cannot be minimized due to limited and easily available ingredients. Because the efficacy of the formulae in curing the various diseases has proved them useful.

Now the book has been translated in English Almost in verbatim, without disturbing the basic idea of the author by authorities of the subject. The commentaries made in the book provide sufficient scope of Camatkara Cintamani in relation to five top most books i.e. Cakradatta, Astanga Hrdayam, Sarngadhara Samhita, Bhaisajya-ratnavali can get almost all the references of these five books also about the topics dealt in Camatkara Cintamani.
