Its essence is the conjunction of the body and the mind and their coordination that achieves optimal health and happiness.

The distinguishing features of this book are its classification of diseases, focus on causative factors and a discussion on various forms of therapy and treatment. The attention paid to detail should make it ideal for students of Ayurveda and all those interested in this system.
