Description

The Darshanas represent the foundations of (1) The Physical, (2) The Natural, and (3) the Biological Sciences not only of India but of the whole World. They deal with the origin of the Universe and its evolution and involution. I am very happy to have had this great opportunity of studying these sciences for the purpose of understanding he basic foundations of Ayurveda.

Although this book may not satisfy the great scholars (the Pandits) of India. I hope it will be useful to the multitude who with to study these ancient science which were responsible for India’s high civilization. I am sure that it will be of great value to the Ayurveda student to whom a knowledge of these preliminary science is absolutely necessary.
