Description

Conceived as a four volume set, this Encyclopaedia is being compiled under the guidance of a board of editors constituted by All India Ayurvedic Congress. Whilst, two volumes have since been published, manuscript for the remaining two volumes is being reviewed by the editors. This volume deals with theories of Ayurveda.

Indian culture has within its depths great treasures of thought, which hold true for all times and for all countries. But these truths which were uttered many many years ago, must be restated in a language which the modern man can understand. The essence does not change, only the form in which it is presented changes.

Ayurveda looks upon disease as an accident and treats it as such; however its avowed object is to promote perfect health. The author, a brilliant product of modern medicine, infused the spirit of modern science into the students of Ayurveda. He used modern machines to prepare medicines out of old prescriptions so that the public may have them in an attractive unadulterated form in plenty. He advocated the study of Ayurveda not only because it is a better and cheaper system than the modern one, but more because in it are synthesized the positive values of all the Indian sciences that contribute to make our civilization the grandest in the world.
