I am happy to bring out the English Version of Ausadha Yoga Vijnanam. I have ventured to write this book which covers the syllabus of M.D. Rasasastra specialisation, Pa- per-HI, Ausadha Yoga Vigyan and M.D. Bhaisajya kalpana specialisation, Paper-Ill, Ausadha Yoga Vigyan.
The vast majority of the population in the country depend on drugs of indigenous origin. It is, therefore necessary that, more books should come out in this subject. Collection of literature related to Rasa Sastra and Bhaisajya Kalpana helps for producing good quality of Ayurvedic medicine.
Ayurvedic compound formulations are divided into two groups viz. a) Kastausadhi (Predominantly made with plant K drugs) dealt in Bhaisajya Kalpana. b) Rasausadhi (predominantly made with metals and minerals) dealt in ` Rasasastra.
The present publication of Ausadha Yoga Vijnanam, deals with different aspects of Ausadha Yoga. A The Ausadha Yoga Vijnanam has however includes the most commonly accepted formulae for the medicinal preparations.
I have tried to bring the subject of Rasa Sastra and Bhaisajya Kalpana in relation to formulations in a lucid language and by incorporating all the corriculum and syllabus of the subject given by Central Council of Indian Medicine. l have covered about many important formulae as examples and given the complete details including the practical ways of over coming the difficulties wherever found out. Though the matter related to formulations available in other books of Rasa Sastra and Bhaisajya Kalpana but it is in a scattered form. Keeping in view of the difficulties faced by students to bring up this compellition work of Rasa yoga & Bhaisajya yoga, by filtering, probing, piercing and extracting the essence of Ayurvedic standard books. In Present work all the information is collected at one place, codified and arranged in a systematic way, being spelled under suitable relevant headings. Thus this work deals with all the relevant and important aspects of Rasausadhi and Kastausadhi.
In this treatise all those medicines are brought in to respective sections with wide range information of their pharmaceutical process. The book is designed according to the sequence of the C.C.I.M. New syllabus. Most of the commonly using formulae of Ayurveda are described with their method of preparation, dosage and indications etc. Every attempt has been made to include, as many important formulations as they are currently manufactured on a large scale in terms of value and practiced throughout the country. Though this book is written in English language, the technical terms of Rasa §5stra and Bhaisajya Kalpana are written in Sanskrit pronunciation only. It is hoped that, this book will find a wider reading public.
The object of writing this book is that, M.D. students, Ayurvedic Physicians, Pharmaceutical personnel and other interested in the preparation of Ayurvedic medicines, may understand better form of this book. The readers may get the equalent modern pharmaceutical terminology for Ayurvedic technical terms with their elaborate information, which is necessary for understanding of Rasa yoga & Bhaisajya yoga up to some extent.
I am sure this book will be useful at large to the Ayurvedic students, Ayurvedic Pharmacists, Practitioners as well as to the drag administration department of the Indigenous systems of medicine.
