Astanga Hrdayam of Vagbhata (Sanskrit Text with Notes in English and Index)

Kanjiv Lochan (Editor)
Synopsis The readers may notice that the serial nos. of the various Slokas in the Astanga Hridaya’s various manuscripts available have been paralleled by a different serial no.  The involved passages are the interpolations made by various commentators of the text.  These interpolations have been included in the present edition.  The problem of proof work of the Text has been compounded by a multiplicity of readings of the work.  We have tried our best to address this issue and are confident that this edition of the Astanga Hridaya would be appreciated by the scholars who expect zero typographic mistakes in a publication like this.  The Astanga Hridaya is representative of that current of scientific ideas in ancient India that appreciated the traditions and at the same time tried to project newer ideas as well.  It has not only carried the ideas of Caraka and Susruta but it has also sought acceptance of certain modifications on them.  The readers would appreciate this and many other marvels of its author Vagbhatta as the text is unfolded.
