Dravyaguna Vijnana: Knowledge of Animal Drugs and Foods in Ayurveda
Dravyaguna Vijnana: Knowledge of Animal Drugs and Foods in Ayurveda
Description
Foreword

It is may pleasure to write foreword for Dravyaguna Vijanan Vol. III written by Dr. Sastry. Yet again the author brought out another volume to benefit the student community. It is glad to find an elaborate and extensive description of animal and vegetable rugs in this volume. His approach towards the subject is apparent while describing the animal drugs like Kasturi and Puti. He also elaborated all the categories of Ahara dravyas as per the syllabus.

Ayurveda imposes self-discipline with regard to the norms of Ahara (food), Nidra (sleep) and Brahmacarya (Celibacy). This prevents the risk factors for most of the illness and maintains good health. Therefore, the foods to be consumed and not to be consumed, should be learnt from the ancient knowledge on different food substances. Through the modern concepts of biochemistry, the importance of various food ingredients was analyzed. On the basis of present concepts of Food and Nutrition, the author proves the ancient approach and its scientific validation. This will enable the modern practitioners also to know about Ayurveda.

The author's efforts are commendable in presenting all aspects of animal and vegetable foods by correlating Ayurvedic Concepts with the concepts of modern science in a simple and lucid language. The author had taken pains in collecting the information from various texts of Ayurveda and modern science.

This book is really useful for the Ayurvedic students as well as practitioners to learn about animal drugs, flesh foods and vegetable foods. Since the book provides ancient and modern knowledge, it will be rewarding if students and practitioners utilize this book. The Central Council for Indian Medicine should recognize all the volumes as reference books for the undergraduate students.

I once again congratulate the author and the publisher for bringing out a very useful book on Dravyaguna Vijnana.
