Astangahrdayam- Sutrasthana (Text, English Translation with Notes and Appendices Including Illustrations, Tables and Indices)

Prof Dr M. Srinivasulu (Author)

Though there are many translations of Ashtanga Hridaya in English, I dared to do a translation which is student friendly at the request of the publisher. True translations (word to word) will loss the original texture and readability while the free translations exceed limits. Hence, I have decided to do a true translation while maintaining readability by presenting in a lucid manner with a breakup of sentences to get the essence of the sutra briefly. It is also easy to search the topics by simple rotating pages. Subject is not deviated and at the same time certain clarifications are quoted with original words from the commentaries. In case of doubt I have clarified with commentaries and presented the original.This privileged work has been done with a desire to simplify the translation for better understanding by students, in highlighted sentences with minimum elaboration in concise form. Key words are highlighted with etymon and with suitable explanations in notes. In early pages, Sanskrit technical terms are provided with English translations within brackets, however as the book progresses only the Sanskrit terms are used as by then the reader would be familiarized with the Sanskrit terms. Latin words for the drugs are given in appendix to avoid any distraction and improve readability. To understand the yantra shastra shapes, suitable model photos of the present-day use have been given at appropriate places. Important principles in slokas are marked with an asterisk (*) and the slokas to get by heart are marked with double asterisk (**). ** marked quotations would be useful throughout the entire life of an Ayurvedic physician. Information provided in the note of the book is to acquaint the reader with Vagbhata, his work Ashtanga Hridaya Samhita and to enumerate the important features of Ashtanga Hridaya Samhita for utilization in PG exams.
