Caraka Samhita Volume 4 (Critical Notes)

A section on medicinal plants of the Caraka-samhita is being appended to the present volume. It contains discussion on plants based on the four comms. taken for study in the critical notes. The other aspects of discussion on identification have not been touched upon here. The main body of the text contains critical notes on the sections on cikitsa, Kalpa and siddhi which are the back-bone of the Ayurvedic Medicine. The cikitsasthana of Caraka is said to be the best one ( Carakastu cikitsite ) in which principles of treatment and effective formulations in respect of a number of common diseases are described. This has been done in a very systematic manner. (Cikitsasthana to Siddhisthana)
