I have tried to bring the subject of Bhaisajya Kalpana in a lucid language and by incorporating all the corriculum and syllabus of the subject given by Central Council of Indian Medicine. I have covered about many important formulae as examples and given the complete details including the practical ways of overcoming the difficulties wherever found out.

Keeping in view of the difficulties faced by students to bring up this compellition work of Bhaisajya Kalpana, 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.

New syllabus. Most of the commonly using formulae of Ayurveda are described with their method of preparation, the dosage and indications etc. Every attempt has been made to include, as many important 'formulations as they are currently manufactured on a large scale interms of value and practiced throughout the country.
