- It consists of the translation of all non-English text, even of the Prefaces, and the Introduction with short clarification.

Dr. R. R. Joardar is a very simple man who is not stunted by age but stands tall in the world that has had exemplary stalwarts. He passed D.M.S. with Honours and is a rank holder of West Bengal Homoeopathy Council. He, in pursuit of his Master went on a scholarship to Germany, acquired a Diploma Mittelstufe II from Munich, learnt the language in which Hahnemann spoke and wrote, translated them for students and teachers on return. He donned the position of the Head of Dept. Organon of Medicine at Mahesh Bhattacharya Homoeopathic Medical College and Hospital, Calcutta University and authored books to ensure that we would be able to carry forward the Master's vision.
Dr. R. R. Joardar has very simply put a benchmark for Homoeopaths, not only in West Bengal, not only in India, but the world at large. A simple man who is not stunted by age but stands tall in the world that has had exemplary stalwarts. His qualifications as a brilliant student who passed D.M.S. with Honours and a rank holder of West Bengal Homoeopathy Council do not define him, but his complete and incomprehensible devotion to the "mission" does. A man who in pursuit of his Master, acquired a Diploma Mittelstufe II from Munich, learnt the language in which Hahnemann spoke and wrote, translated them for students and teachers on return and held the lamp in the days of hopelessness to show the way forward.
Donned the position of the Head of Dept. Organon of Medicine at Mahesh Bhattacharya Homoeopathic Medical College and Hospital, Calcutta University and authored books to ensure that we would be the people to carry forward the Master's vision using Organon as the Northern lights to show direction whenever we felt lost. Even after retirement and failing health in his nineties, he comes once in a while to give lectures which are pearls of wisdom to almost all colleges in West Bengal for both Undergraduate and Postgraduate colleges like NIH, Mahesh Bhattacharya College, D.N. De to name a few and that day, the attendance is 100% such is the man, such is his devotion. Macular degeneration is eroding his vision, but that does not daunt his soul—he still buys the latest editions of all books on Internal Medicine like Davidson and Harrison and asks his students to read them out aloud, when questioned about this phenomenon with a twinkle in his eyes, he smiles and replies, "I have to keep a watch on the diseases and also to observe the progress of syphilis, gonorrhoea, etc. for being a good homoeopath with a sound knowledge of Organon’.
The book that we have compiled with a lot of pride and humility is one of the most authoritative and truly the best so far the Hahnemannian principle in its best ever format. This will also have a holistic approach with contribution of Dr. Samuel Hahnemann, Ayurveda, and thoughts of Pythagoras, Hippocrates, Empiricists, and others:
This book is every student and teacher’s ready reckoner; "The Dictionary of Organon of Medicine". If this book is not there in your bookshelf consider it incomplete a collection. The originality of this masterpiece is undeniable undoubtedly and truly as a mediator to have the culmination in it being published pan India, I feel humbled and truly privileged to have had the collaboration of Dr. Joardar’s "beautiful yet organized, masterpiece yet subdued, authoritative yet a homage" piece of unyielding devotion with B. Jain Publishers, New Delhi to see the light of the day.
The whole fraternity of Homoeopaths stand obliged to both in equal measure as we reach a milestone in putting our mission and our role as physicians, teachers, students, and all lovers of the true art of healing; Homoeopathy, being uplifted to scale newer heights.
One amongst his admirers and his contemporaries, Dr. Mahendra Singh often said that it was impossible to find another homoeopath who had such sound knowledge of The Organon of Medicine. Dr. L.M. Khan, Dr. Subhas Singh, Dr. Subhashish Ganguly, and myself along with many junior and senior faculties feel blessed to have found him as our guide and are proud to carry forward his vision. My sincere gratitude to Dr. Joardar to have allowed this gem to be published and to B. Jain Publishers, New Delhi to have come forward to publish this one of the purest books in Hahnemannian principles to enrich the repertoire of Homoeopathic literature.
Study this book at your Undergraduate level to understand the thoughts of the great visionary, absorb this book at your Post Graduate level to make a mark and finally read it thereafter to live and love homoeopathy forever.
As a student and as a teacher, he has dwarfed many and may the writing of this living legend pass on to you. This is not only a book, but a part of his life and a mantle that he will pass on. We are blessed indeed to have seen him, attended his lectures, collected a bit of his wisdom and inherited his legacy. This book will kindle the fire of hope that all homeopaths need to sustain the Master's path. If one could personalize Aude Sapere; I would say it is Dr. Rakhal Raj Joardar! I pray for his wellbeing and I hope we remain blessed forever.
This book, the first and second part together, completes a work of long thirty six years, entailing the following qualities. The translation of all non-english texts, even of the Prefaces, and the Introduction has been supplied also with short clarification, wherever it was deemed necessary;
Other topics—from beginning to end—have been presented in reference to each one’s context; all the cross references have been supplied, as far as possible; all the related and relevant data on most of the topics have been collected from as many sources as are available here and to-day, and presented; and, the whole book having been compared and verified with the original German text, the anomalies and misunderstanding, have been rectified as much as possible.
The book contains also the transliteration of the greek texts —to be seen for the first time ever. There are other novelties too. But the book itself should speak, about these.
The author remains grateful to all the Authors and Authorities on Hahnemann, Homoeopathy, and Organon, from whom he has drawn rather liberally; acknowledges thereby their individual contributions to homoeopathy, as also expresses his gratitude to their respective publishers.
The author also expresses his gratitude to each one of those Students, Teachers and Other personalities, who have contributed more or less for the publication of the book, directly or indirectly.
It may well be that the book contains some errors. The author would, therefore, gratefully acknowledge and, appreciate any suggestion from anybody for the improvement of the book.
