Vajikarana Tantra: Reproductive Medicine in Ayurveda

J.L.N. Sastry (Author)

Though the subject Vajikarana is the most sought for branch of Ayurveda, there is no published (exclusive) work on Vajikarana so far. Vajikarana is often promoted/pronounced as Sexual Medicine or Sexology. This text for the first time, conceptualized the theme 'Vajikarana Tantra' vis a vis 'Reproductive Medicine'. This text covers both male and female perspectives of Vajikarana tantra. Most importantly, several references about the utility of Vajikarana Cikitsa in Yonivyapats (gynaecological disorders) is comprehensively dealt. Extensive description of both male infertility and female infertility is made under respective chapters. Both Ayurvedic and moderns perspectives are summarized with appropriate comparisons. Various aspects of Impotency and Frigidity are also explained in detail. An attempt is made for the first time to define Shanda and Klaibya as Infertility and Impotency respectively. This text covers the Vajikarana topic in the CCIM syllabus (paper-IV, part-A). Therefore, it not only acts as a reference text for the students, but also is a guide for the teachers as well as the practitioners. This is the one and only text with all the Ayurvedic References on Vajikarna.
