"Nidanemadhavah sresthah" - For diagnosis, madhava nidana in the best as has been envisaged by the scholars. Such great work Madhavanidana has been use for practical and research purposes by the students, practitioners and researchers since its publication. Madhavakara has taken lot of pains to compile the concerned material from various sources like Caraka samhita, Susruta samhita, Astanga sangraha and Astangas hrdaya. That apart, he has composed verses out of his own experience by which he could add more value to his work. This work his deal exclusively with the diagnostic crieteria of diseases on Ayurvedic basis. Once the patient approaches the physician, the later should concentrate on fixing the diagnosis so as to give a pin pointed treatment to cure the disease. Though the material has been collected from Caraka samhita etc., the study of these works alone may not give such a clear picture of the disease. The arrangement of the subject material in Madhava nidana is so systematic that it can be understood by the physicians with the interlinking system of the diseases in a proper manner.

This work has attracted the attention of many a number of scholar from Ayurvedic field and also from the literature field. The first English translation was done by G. J. Mullenbeld, professor of Indology of Netherlands. It is purely on the literary view point and the language is so mechanical that the practitioners could not find it much useful. Prof. Srikanthamurthy of Bangalore has made a very good effort in translating this work into English. Now it is very popular work among English knowing enthusiasts of Ayurveda. But his translation is restricted to main text of Madhavanidana. The commentaries of Vijayaraksita and Srikantha datta aptly named as "madhukosa," meaning " Honeycomb" gives more clarity in the subject concern. Pt. Yadavji Trikamji Acharya himself wondered to see the reference of many unseen works of Ayurveda mentioned in this commentary. One should carefully go through the commentary without getting confused by honey -bee like language used in it and get the honey -Like knowledge. It is felt necessary to take -up the translation of the commentary also so as to make the English knowing zealots to enjoy the crux of the subject. There is no doubt that no translation can match the original text in expression but a sincere effort is made in the following pages to explore the intricacy of the subject in English. This venture has been encouraged by the renowned publishers, Chowkhamba Sanskrit Series office, Varanasi after they published my translation on "Sarngadhara samhita" which had gained popularity among the students and scholars of Ayurveda. I appeal to the learned that this may kindly be accepted and suggest about draw backs if any, which can be rectified in future editions. At present a part of this text, i.e., from chapter 1-32 are being presented.
