K.R. Srikantha Murthy (Translator) Krishnadas Ayurveda Series

Bhavaprakasa written by Bhavamisra is an authoritative text on Ayurveda and is being studied by students, teachers and practitioners of Ayurveda since last five centuries. It is comprehensive, dealing with basic doctrines, aetiology, symptomatology and treatment of all diseases. It describes about 500 drugs belonging to vegetable, mineral and animal kingdoms. This lexicon of drugs (Nighantu Bhaga) is considered as a speciality of this text since in incorporates many new drugs unknown in the ancient period. In the treatment of diseases both Kasthausadhas (Vegetable drugs) and Rasausadhas (mercurial and mineral drugs) have been prescribed. With all these merits Bhavaprakasa has been a very popular text. Need for its English translation was being keenly felt specially by Post-graduate students.

This translation is a step in that direction. The translator Prof. Srikantha Murthy is a person rich in experience of teaching Ayurveda and writing valuable books. His earlier translations into English of Sarangadhara Samhita, Madhava Nidana, Astanga Hrdaya and Astanga Samgraha have earned for him an international reputation.

This book is the text in that series. Bhavaprakasa - complete treatise - is proposed to be published in two volumes. Vol. I -  Prathama Khanda including Nighantu bhaga. Vol. II - Madhya and Uttara Khanda. Each volume will have many appendeces and index - prepared so as to be very useful for all Ayurvedists.
