Rasa-Jala-Nidhi or Ocean of Indian Chemistry, Medicine & Alchemy (In 5 Volumes)

Bhudeb Mookherjee (Compiler) Kashi Ayurveda Series

They have not yet ben aware of the fact that the ancient glory and greatness of Ayurveda was due neither to its progress in Surgery, Anatomy, etc. as taught by Sushruta, etc. – which these well-meaning physicians have been trying to revive, by the introduction of western methods, where necessary, - nor to the excellence of herbal drugs, as taught by Charaka, etc. But to the exceptional and unique progress which Ayurveda made in the region of Medical Chemistry….
