Description

It is said that a laborious study of a dead science like Ayurveda is a mere waster of money, energy and time, especially when a progressive and modern science can be learnt. Some people have sugg4ested that is enough if we enlarge the British Pharmacopoeia by adding to it a few more indigenous drugs and that for that purpose, it is not necessary to encourage the science of Ayurveda or the physicians who practice the same.

Ayurveda is a real science of life dealing with all its aspects. Its scope is not narrow and bound into water-tight compartments as in the western syst4em. The science of Ayurveda includes all that is essential to make a man not only healthy but also happy. It also includes the study of all Dharma - right conduct - which is necessary for the healthy growth of the society in which the man lives. Further, it deals with th4e philosophical aspect of life, the knowledge of which contributes greatly to the comfort and happiness of human beings. Thus, social, religious and moral education of the individual citizen is included in the science of Ayurveda. In this manner, it is more scientific as a science of life than the western medicine.

This book will help he students to study with interest the text-books of original authors like Charaka and Sushruta. It is not intended that this book should be a substitute for them but only a guide for their study.
