About the Author

Prof. K. R. Srikantha Murthy (b. 1929) is an alumnus of the Govt. Ayurveda College, Mysore (1948) and Post-Graduate Center in Ayurveda, Jamnagar (1958). Served as professor and Principal at all the three Govt. Colleges of Ayurveda in Karnataka and retired in 1984. As ordained by his preceptor and mentor Prof. C. Dwarakanath, he has been pursuing literary research activities since last forty years and has many scientific monographs and books to his credit. He is the recipient of many titles prizes and awards from prestigious organizations.

About the Foreword

This volume comprises of Sarira, Nidana, Cikitsita and Kalpa sthanas, the second, third, fourth and fifth sections of Astanga samgraha of Vagbhata.

As usual this also furnishes the text in original and its faithful translation in simple english.

I have dedicated this volume to Dr. V. Narayanaswamy, a bright luminary in the firmament of Ayurveda of the present day. A few words here about his life and accomplishments in life are needed to appreciate his calibre.

V. Narayanaswamy was born in 1903 and after his schooling, he joined the college of Indian medicine, Madras and passed out of it in 1929 obtaining H.P .I.M. He and Dr. C. Dwarkanath were classmates and students of the reputed teacher Capt. G. Srinivasa Murthy. He joined his almamater as lecturer (1930) and steadily rose to the highest office and retired as Head of the Dept. in 1958. All through this long period he devoted time for study, writing and research, produced many scientific monographs on various aspects of Ayurveda. He studied Siddha system of medicine also and wrote books on it. All these reflect his indepth study and clear elucidation of the subjects.

Realising the dire need of a good pharmacy to prepare genuine Ayurveda and Siddha medicines and make them available to the practtioners, he gathered a few of his like- minded friends and founded the Indian medical practioners co-operative pharmacy at Adyar, Madras in 1960 and served as the first President of its Board of Directors for nearly fifteen years (1960-75). He laid the firm foundation for its stability and development. Today, it is one of the major pharmacies being run on co-operative basis, manufacturing genuine medicines of Ayurveda, Siddha and Unani sy.stems, earning profit year after year. It stands as a monument to the foresight of Dr. V. Narayanaswamy.

He started a Research wing also in that pharmacy and the results achieved there prompted Govt. ofIndia to release financial grants to make it a full fledged independent organisation. Thus was born the Capt. O. Srinivasa Murthy Research Institute of Indian Medicine and its first director was none other than Dr. Narayanaswamy.

Considering his deep scholarship, zeal and enthusiasm to serve the cause of Ayurveda, many governments and universities appointed him as an expert member on Advisory committees. Govt. of India appointed him as member of the newly established Central council of Indian medicine. He was a member of almost all Advisory Boards set by central government. In the deleberations of all the Boards, his was the voice which fought valiantly for a rightful place for Ayurveda, improvements of the status of Indian systems of medicine in governmental set up, programmes for research activities etc. He is greatly responsible for implementation of many improvement schemes in the field of Indian medicine.

Considering the great qualities of his head and heart, President of India, granted him the award of "Padmasri" in 1974.

Now in his nineties, age has not dampened his intellect and enthusiasm, he continues as a source of guidance and inspiration for all.

Dedication of this volume is just a token of my respects to this great Ayurvedist. I pray Lord Dhanvantari to shower all his kindness on Dr. Narayanaswamy.
