Bhaisajya Ratnavali is one of the most popular and authentic compendia of Ayurveda. almost all the Ayurvedic physicians are following the formulations of this classic in their day to day practice. this book is a treasure house of pharmaceutical preparations and almost all the Ayurvedic drug manufacturers are followed to prepare the drugs based on descriptions mentioned in this text. Quite a huge number of formulations of this text are incorporated in Ayurvedic Formulary of India published by Government of India, Deptt. of Ayush, Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, New Delhi.

The beauty of this compendium is that it includes very simple preparation like svarasa (expressed juice) to high technical preparation like kupipakva rasayanas to serve the needs of Ayurvedic physicians and to treat the different stages of disease.

This classic comprising of one hundred six chapters dealing with mainly treatment principles, different formulations i.e. herbal, mineral, metallic and combinations, various pharmaceutical forms viz.Svarasa, kalka, kvatha, hima, phanta, rasakriya, avaleha, ghrita, taila, asava, arista, bhasma, kharaliya rasayana, kupi pakva rasayana, parpati, ksara, lavana etc. Non phrmacological treatments are also find place in certain diseases like jvara, unmada, apasmara, hikka and graha roga etc. diseases.

Some new chapters like Virya stambhana, Amasaya roga cikitsa, Smaronmada cikitsa, Gadodvega cikitsa, Tattvonmada cikitsa, Acalavata cikitsa, Tandava roga cikitsa, Snayu roga cikitsa, Skhalitya cikitsa, Khanjanika cikitsa, Urostoya cikitsa, Bahumutra cikitsa, Soma roga mutratisara cikitsa,Sukrameha cikitsa, Ojomeha cikitsa, Lasikameha cikitsa, Dhvaja bhanga cikitsa, Vrikka roga cikitsa, Snayuka roga cikitsa, Parada vikara cikitsa, Sirsambu roga cikitsa, Mastiska vepana cikitsa, mastiskacayapacaya cikitsa, Mastiska roga samanya cikitsa, Amsughata roga cikitsa, Yosapatantraka cikitsa, Yoni kandu cikitsa, Andadhara roga cikitsa and Apamumursu cikitsa are incorporated in this work inorder to facilitate the treatment and to promote Ayurveda. At the end of the each chapter the description of pathya and apathya are also given as a part of treatment.

English translation and Sri Ramana Prabhakara commentary is a dream of the translator. During my under graduation studies though i wanted to refer this book i could not do this due to lack of Hindi knowledge. Later on by the grace of Lord Vishwanath, I took the admission in M.D. (Ay.)Rasa Shastra in B.H.U. Varanasi and I got the opportunity to learn Hindi language some extent and I have gone through this text thoroughly during my M.D. and Ph.D. studies. In the year 1991 I translated Rasamritam written by Vaidya Shri Yadavji Trikamji acarya, alongwith my guruji Prof. Damodar Joshiji and I got some command on terminology and concepts related to Rasa Shastra and Bhaisajya Kalpana. Subsequently I wrote the text book on Bhaisajya Kalpana Vijnanam (based on CCIM Syllabus). These two works gave me a scope to translate this big voluminous Bhaisajya Ratnavali and my dream comes true after completion of twenty five years (silver jubilee year) of my graduation.

Although this book is not included in the syllabus of graduation and post graduation curriculum. However, most of the scholars, teachers, researchers and physicians are referred this book particularly for formulations. Though these formulations are available in earlier classics like Caraka Samhita, Susruta Samhita, Harita Samhita, Sarangadhara Samhita, Cakradatta, Rasendra Sara Sangraha, Brihat Rasaraja Sundara, Rasaratna Samucchaya, Yoga Ratnakara etc. but this compendium gained popularity due to its comprehensiveness. The well tested and trusted composition of various formulations of earlier classics are incorporated in this text as mentioned by the author Kaviraj Govind Das SenJi in order to promote Ayurvedic practice and also made it physician friendly.

This classic is presented into two volumes for the convenience of readers and better handling. In volume one the chapter one to thirty two are presented and rest of the chapters along with six appendices such as Glossary of drugs (plant origin), Plants and their botanical names, Animal origin products, Minerals and metals, Diseases with modern equivalents and Measurements presented in volume two in a lucid manner.

The presentation style followed in this translation is definately first of its kind in Ayurveda. Inclusion of maximum nomenclature to untold paragraphs, categorisation of ingredients in different formulations, incorporation of accurate references, schematic presentation of formulations, incorporation of accurate references, schematic presentation of formulations and dual index (index with reference as well as page number) are few salient features of this book.

I hope this work is definitely useful to Ayurveda fraternity including students, teachers, practitioners, researchers and drug manufacturers.
