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.
