Organon of Medicine is the cornerstone of Homeopathic principles and
practice, and is a must for every homoeopath. This book is the first of its
kind and a need of every homoeopaths table. Comprehending the
insight of the words written in Organon is a herculean task. The author
in pursuit of his Master, translated his work for students and teachers
and has set a benchmark for every Homoeopath.
Dr. R. R. Joardar is a very simple man who is not stunted by age but
stands tall in the world that has had exemplary stalwarts. He passed
D.M.S. with Honours and is a rank holder of West Bengal
Homoeopathy Council. He, in pursuit of his Master went on a
scholarship to Germany, acquired a Diploma Mittelstufe II from Munich,
learnt the language in which Hahnemann spoke and wrote, translated
them for students and teachers on return. He donned the position of the
Head of Dept. Organon of Medicine at Mahesh Bhattacharya
Homoeopathic Medical College and Hospital, Calcutta University and

Dr. R. R. Joardar has very simply put a benchmark for
Homoeopaths, not only in West Bengal, not only in India, but
the world at large. A simple man who is not stunted by age but
stands tall in the world that has had exemplary stalwarts. His
qualifications as a brilliant student who passed D.M.S. with
Honours and a rank holder of West Bengal Homoeopathy Council
do not define him, but his complete and incomprehensible
devotion to the "mission" does. A man who in pursuit of his
Master, acquired a Diploma Mittelstufe II from Munich, learnt
the language in which Hahnemann spoke and wrote, translated
them for students and teachers on return and held the lamp in
the days of hopelessness to show the way forward.
Donned the position of the Head of Dept. Organon of
Medicine at Mahesh Bhattacharya Homoeopathic Medical
College and Hospital, Calcutta University and authored books to
ensure that we would be the people to carry forward the Master's
vision using Organon as the Northern lights to show direction
whenever we felt lost. Even after retirement and failing health in
his nineties, he comes once in a while to give lectures which are
pearls of wisdom to almost all colleges in West Bengal for both
Undergraduate and Postgraduate colleges like NIH, Mahesh
Bhattacharya College, D.N. De to name a few and that day, the
attendance is 100% such is the man, such is his devotion. Macular
degeneration is eroding his vision, but that does not daunt his
soul—he still buys the latest editions of all books on Internal
Medicine like Davidson and Harrison and asks his students to
read them out aloud, when questioned about this phenomenon
with a twinkle in his eyes, he smiles and replies, "I have to keep a
watch on the diseases and also to observe the progress of syphilis,
gonorrhoea, etc. for being a good homoeopath with a sound
knowledge of Organon’.
The book that we have compiled with a lot of pride and
humility is one of the most authoritative and truly the best so
far the Hahnemannian principle in its best ever format. This will
also have a holistic approach with contribution of Dr. Samuel
Hahnemann, Ayurveda, and thoughts of Pythagoras, Hippocrates,
Empiricists, and others:
This book is every student and teacher’s ready reckoner; "The
Dictionary of Organon of Medicine". If this book is not there in
your bookshelf consider it incomplete a collection. The originality
of this masterpiece is undeniable undoubtedly and truly as a
mediator to have the culmination in it being published pan India,
I feel humbled and truly privileged to have had the collaboration
of Dr. Joardar’s "beautiful yet organized, masterpiece yet subdued,
authoritative yet a homage" piece of unyielding devotion with B.
Jain Publishers, New Delhi to see the light of the day.
The whole fraternity of Homoeopaths stand obliged to both
in equal measure as we reach a milestone in putting our mission
and our role as physicians, teachers, students, and all lovers of
the true art of healing; Homoeopathy, being uplifted to scale
One amongst his admirers and his contemporaries, Dr.
Mahendra Singh often said that it was impossible to find another
homoeopath who had such sound knowledge of The Organon
of Medicine. Dr. L.M. Khan, Dr. Subhas Singh, Dr. Subhashish
Ganguly, and myself along with many junior and senior faculties
feel blessed to have found him as our guide and are proud to carry
forward his vision. My sincere gratitude to Dr. Joardar to have
allowed this gem to be published and to B. Jain Publishers, New
Delhi to have come forward to publish this one of the purest
books in Hahnemannian principles to enrich the repertoire of
Study this book at your Undergraduate level to understand
the thoughts of the great visionary, absorb this book at your Post
Graduate level to make a mark and finally read it thereafter to
live and love homoeopathy forever.
As a student and as a teacher, he has dwarfed many and may
the writing of this living legend pass on to you. This is not only
a book, but a part of his life and a mantle that he will pass on.
We are blessed indeed to have seen him, attended his lectures,
collected a bit of his wisdom and inherited his legacy. This book
will kindle the fire of hope that all homeopaths need to sustain
the Master's path. If one could personalize Aude Sapere; I would
say it is Dr. Rakhal Raj Joardar! I pray for his wellbeing and I
hope we remain blessed forever.
This book, the first and second part together, completes a
work of long thirty six years, entailing the following qualities.
The translation of all non-english texts, even of the Prefaces, and
the Introduction has been supplied also with short clarification,
wherever it was deemed necessary;
Other topics—from beginning to end—have been presented
in reference to each one’s context; all the cross references have been
supplied, as far as possible; all the related and relevant data on most
of the topics have been collected from as many sources as are available
here and to-day, and presented; and, the whole book having been
compared and verified with the original German text, the anomalies
and misunderstanding, have been rectified as much as possible.
The book contains also the transliteration of the greek texts —to
be seen for the first time ever. There are other novelties too. But the
book itself should speak, about these.
The author remains grateful to all the Authors and Authorities
on Hahnemann, Homoeopathy, and Organon, from whom he
has drawn rather liberally; acknowledges thereby their individual
contributions to homoeopathy, as also expresses his gratitude to
their respective publishers.
The author also expresses his gratitude to each one of those
Students, Teachers and Other personalities, who have contributed
more or less for the publication of the book, directly or indirectly.
It may well be that the book contains some errors. The author
would, therefore, gratefully acknowledge and, appreciate any
suggestion from anybody for the improvement of the book.
