Preface

What makes books appear?. The real authors of books are not those isolated individual persons who cast them up or cause to be published. It is the request or the public express or implied which brings them into existence. I have never known any book which has been printed without consulting the necessity of the public. A desire has been always expressed by interested in 1hb dissemination of Hindu medical theories, b compile a work embracing the essential portions of the print medical books of the Hindus. Certainly it is very desirable to have in possession all the best books of this kind. But j generally falls beyond the. resources of many. Moreover it involves an immense loss of time to arrive at few truths after going through an enormous mass of rubbish. A compilation of t sort-is therefore a necessity and can never be unwelcome. I order that it ipay be intelligible to our brethren in the other Fences as well as to European medical men, I have caused English translation to be made thereof. I have spared no sins. to niece the work really useful. For this purpose, I have Fit in many things which my personal experience has been able to gather and which I honestly believe to be serviceable to those far whom they are intended. If the present work meets with the approbation of the public as all of my previous publications have, I shall not consider my labor spent in vain. In conclusion, I cannot forego this opportunity of thanking the people who have always encouraged my productions and to whom I owe a heavy debt of gratitude.
