Appreciating the practical utility of the text, the CCIM has included the Sutra Sthana of Astanga Hrdayam as part of the BAMS syllabus.  There is several publications on this subject.  Yet there was needed a work that could present an uncontaminated and plain translation of the book.  The present work translated by Dr. Kanjiv Lochan aims at fulfilling this lacunae.  It has been prepared in a way to present the narrative of the original texts in a lucid and simple reader-friendly English with least use of jargons. Translation of the rest of the Astanga Hrdayam are forthcoming.
