Preface

Panchakarma is a specialised procedure adopted for the purification of the body before actual treatment is given for a particular disease. Sometimes it alone cures the disease also. This procedure is similar to cleaning cloth before it is dyed. The procedure has been very common in South India and now it has become very popular in other parts of the country as it is mostaly based on herbal medicine which is not harmful to the body and useful particularly for chronic ailments.

The pre-sent book has been written by an eminent versatile Ayurvedic physician Prof. (Dr.) (Km.) Premvati Tewari, ex Dean, faculty of Ayurveda, I.M.S., B.H.U. She has included the methods adopted in Kashyapa Samhita which are mainly for children and which are not mentioned in other popular Samhitas like, Charaka, Sushruta or Vagbhatta. I congratulate her for this unique work and expect many more books dealing on fields not covered by other experts. I once again thank.

 

Introduction

Ayurveda emphasizes more on promotion , protection and prevention if health so that ill- health does not manifest , however if disease inflicts some one then itbis to be treated by cleansing i.e samsodhana and pacification i.e somsamana therapies.

These process of manifestation of a disease follows a set pattern . Dosas the Biological/ functional attributes attributes of pancamahabutas in the body , called vata pitta and kapha get vitiated i.e aggravated or diminished due to various couses . involing dhatus the substratum of pathology : move throught body channels i.e srotasas and are lodged at that place wherever these srotasas are abnormal/ obstucted .

These srotasas i.e body i.e body Channeal narrow and wide macro and micro are classinfied as bahirmukha i.e external apertures and abhyantara i-e internal channels The internal srotasas are marco channels or transporting conduits and also vital breath ( O2) from the place of their origin to minutest port of the body i.e cell including its nucleus , then from there transporting extretables CO2 to the place of their discharge from the body in physiological state .

The doses in the body are are not always in the static proportion , these very in different phase of life etc. and also in seasons (sircadian and cercannual variation) During vulnerable of aggravation slightes departure from healthy mode of life and dietetics may aggravate doses and the disease manifests.

To prevnet the vitiation of srotasas and contain the aggravation of dose preventive smsodhana i.e cleansing supersedes the samsamana i.e pacification.

The samsodhana or biopurificatry procedures are called pancakarmas preceded with two purvakarkaras (prior acts ). There exists some difference of opinion about these pancakarmas , emesis (vamana) , purgation (virecana ) niruha or asthapana basti (cleansing enema ) and sirovirecana/ nasya (head evacuation )are accepted by all the ancient authors, caraka and susruta ets . have incloud anuwasana basti (nutritive or unctuous enema )in pancakarmas , while vagbhatas (A..S.and A.H ) have included asravisruti (blood letting ) instead of anuwasnan basti in current practice of to-day also blood –letting is not considered under pancakarmas

In current health scenario of the world the Pancakarma Therapy has attained its rirhtful high status thus is included as one speciality of higher education of ayurveda (M.D Ay ) for few years it is also included as a separate for under graduate education . Erudites have written commendable books on Pancakarma to quench the thirst of knowledge of the student .

In kasyapa samhita , a source –book of paediatrics , specific procedurec for purvakarma suitable for children , have been given . probably these points have not been incloud in the books of Pancakarma.

For the last few decades one aspect of blood –letting i.e leech application termed ‘ Hirudotherapy ‘ has attracted attention of scientist would over due to unthought- of vistas of benefits by hirudotherapy specially in the diseases being considered difficult to be treated by modern medicine

Considering current importance of hirudotherapy and also with the view of presenting all six procedures described as Pancakarma in classics as-well as to include specific methods suitable for children this book is presented to the scholars . though the name of the book ‘Pancakarma Therapy’ apparently appears misnomer yet , it is not so; as it deals with Pancakarma Therapy of both the school either accepting anuwasana enemna of asrak – visruti in Pancakarma.

The book consists of seven chapter i.e dealing respectively with basics of Pancakarma Purvakarmas (Prior acts of Pancakarma ), vamana and virechana (emesis and purgation), bastikarma (enema), sirovirecha (head evacuation); asravisruti (blood- letting )and post Pancakarma Management in which smoking, gargle and mouthful retention to be used after head evacuation are also included .

Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
