Vaidyaka Paribhasha Pradeep is a brilliant compilation of the significant definitions in the field of Ayurveda by ri Govinda Dãsa Sena, the eminent author of the book ‘Bhaiajya RatnävalI’.
The book has four parts as ‘prathama’, ‘dwitIya, ‘qitiya’ and ‘caturtha’ khanda. Prathama khanda has the basic definitions from Ayurveda which become the guiding lights throughout to assess and understand the science in a better way. Deity and titian khanda contain the most crucial definitions of the basic preparations required for the Ayurvedic treatment, explained in a highly structured and organized way. The caturtha khanda is exclusively dedicated to the definitions from ‘paficakarma’. It contains the noteworthy descriptions of all the significant terminologies related with every procedure in ‘pañcakarma’.
For all the terminologies featuring in this book, the commentator has put in his best efforts to furnish the most appropriate and authentic illustration through his TRANSCENDENCE descriptive English commentary.
Dr. Ravindra Angadi works as assistant professor and recognized PG guide in Post Graduate department of Rasaastra and Bhaisajya Kalpana, at S.D.M. College of Ayurveda, Kuthpady, Udupi, Karnataka.
His earlier book named ‘A TEXT BOOK OF BHAISAJYA KALPANA as per CCIM’s new UG & PG Syllabus’ published in the year 2009 by Chaukhamba Surbharati Prakashan Varanasi, is widely appreciated and blessed by seniors in the field and is gladly accepted by the student fraternity of Ayurveda.
The charm of ‘classical terminologies’ used in the different texts of Ayurveda, lies in their superb quality of spontaneity, of universality and of perennial freshness they hold and impart on to the science. The compactness in the definitions of these terminologies with deeper and hidden meanings makes them more appealing to the readers.
To understand the science with proper rationality, one should be good in perceiving the hidden, concealed, partially explained and at times mystifying meanings of these definitions. Many a times we tend to look at the concepts in our science with an orthodox mindset. However, with so much of advancement in the science, we must think beyond out conventional ideas to inculcate newer knowledge into the science.
The term ‘transcendence’ means the same. It is the quality of being able to go beyond normal limits or boundaries. At this juncture I am glad to introduce the ‘transcendence commentary’ to ‘VAIDYAKA PARIBHASA PRADIPA’ a book compiled by Acarya Govinda Däsa Sena.
This work is a humble attempt to bring a handy referral book of definitions, which will be useful to everyone in the field of Ayurveda. The under graduates, the post graduates and’ the students appearing for PG entrance examinations may find this book more beneficial.
