In 1981 my book Kayachikitsa was published in Marathi language. This was written as per the syllabus for B.A.M.& S. course, of integrated system pattern. Since that time there were constant changes in the syllabus and according- ly the book was updated several times. The last updating was done in 1998, as per new changes made by the CCIM, New Delhi. This book is so popular in Maharashtra State, that so far; eight editions have come out and more than 25,000 copies have been sold.
When the same pattern of syllabus was introduced at the All India level, there was great demand, that this book should also be published in English language.
Chaukhamba Sanskrit Pratishthan has therefore published my book on Kayachkitsa in English language which was well received by the readers in Western world. This book which was published in 2001, contains no Sanskrit Texts as it was only for the Western Students. However there was great demand from the Indian students, that I should write Kayachikitsa with all the relavent references of San- skrit Shlokas. Accordingly I am happy to present this first volume on Kayachikitsa, which contains Paper 1 as per the syllabus of CCIM.
Since I got the opportunity to write the matter of the Paper 1, I have not only added Sanskrit Shlokas, but have supplimented the entire text with additional references.
I hope that like my other 90 books published in various languages like Hindi, Malayalam, German, Polish, Italian Russian, Czekoslovakian and Spanish and other English books published in United States, Germany, Poland and Italy the readers will also appreciate this book. I am happy that Mr. Pravin Gupt of Chaukhamba Sanskrit Pratishtha- na, Delhi has taken up this task, and have published this book in excellent manner.
