There is a growing consciousness all over the world to know about Ayurveda, the earliest medical system of India, which has survived the vicissitudes of time for centuries and is still living and acting with vigour. Initially Ayurveda was one whole but later on was divided into eight specialties (angas) and still further, in present times, into sixteen ones. Till date there is no book dealing with all these specialties at one place presenting an integrated picture of Ayurveda.
The present publication, 'Essentials of Ayurveda', is significant in the sense that it contains the essence of all the sixteen specialties of Ayurveda by which one could get working knowledge of Ayurveda as a whole. The book, in a sense, is the first representative work of the present age composed in traditional scholarly style. The English translation by the author himself has enhanced its value for the readers.
The present work will prove useful not only for teachers and students but also for all those who want to be acquainted with principles and practice of Ayurveda easily.
