Description

Foreword

 

I am very happy to learn that the great treatise entitled Vaidya Chintamani written by Vallabhacharya at 15th A.D., has been edited and translated by Dr. K. Rama Chandra Reddy, Department of Rasa Shastra, Faculty of Ayurveda, Institute of Medical Sciences.

 

The system of Ayurveda, although at present mainly con- fined to India, had a much wider recognition and prevalence in the past, since the time start of Human civilization and Vedic period. This system has undergone many vicissitudes in the course of its long and cherished history. Moreover, it still remains the mainstay of medical relief to the majority of the people in this country. The extensive use of herbs, minerals and animal products has recently attracted large International attention towards Ayurveda. In the modern context it is necessary to standardize the formulations for the purpose of maintaining their quality, reproducibility and efficacy.

 

The Vaidya Chintamani, a treatise of Ayurveda which was originated from Andhra Pradesh, incorporates very significant formulations of Ayurveda. The present edited and translated exposition of Vaidya Chintamani not only contains botanical, chemical and scientific nomenclature of all the ingredients of different formulations but also explains the method of preparation, dose and therapeutic uses of Ayurvedic medicines. I hope that this book will not only influence the readers, but the researchers will also take benefit of this.

 

I, on behalf of Banaras Hindu University, extend my hearties congratulation to everyone associated with publication of this book and convey my best wishes for successful publication of the book.

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.
