The need for a text book on Shalakya Tantra arose because of the New C.C.I.M. syllabus for the final years BAMS course from this academic year. When I was approached by the publishers for writing a text book Shalakya Tantra, I was hesitant initially, because of the big task ahead. But it was on the insistence of my students, that I took up this herculean task which almost took two years to complete.
