R. Vidyanath (Author) R.H. Singh (Foroward) The Chaukhamba Ayurveda Studies

This book Astanga Hrdaya: Sutra Sthana is first of its kind in the history of Ayurvedic literature, which has been presented with a maximum number of illustrations for better understanding the subject matter by the freshly joined students of Ayurveda. As a teacher of the concerned subject for the past 15 years, the author has identified the necessity of proper study material in English language to cater the needs of 1st year BAMS students. Keeping this in view the author has made an attempt to incorporate the translation of the text along with the reated mattercompiled from other Compendiums in the form of notes. The book is supplemented with Annexure containing Important Essay & Short Questions Important Slokas to be learnt by heart, Alphabetical Index of the Herbs, Table of Weights and Measures, Glimpse of Astanga Hrdaya and Glossary of Sanskrit Terms. The present text book is primarily written for undergraduate students of Ayurveda as per latest CCIM Syllabus 2012. However, it is hoped that Teacheras, PG Scholars and General Practitioners would also find it used as a reference book.
