This is a three volume set:

Vol. I Sutra Sthana & Sarira Sthana
Vol. II Nidan, Cikitsa, Kalpa & Siddhi Sthana
Vol. III Uttara Sthana, Index & Appendix

Ashtangahridaya of Vagbhata is an ancient authoritative treatise on Ayurveda. Its popularity extended beyond the frontiers of India for more than a thousand years substantiated by its translation in Arabic, Tibetan and some European languages. None of these are available now.

Study of Ashtangahridaya is considered indispensable for a thorough knowledge of Ayurveda. With the increasing interest these days for the study of Classical texts of Ayurveda both within and outside India a great need is felt for an English translation. This publication by Dr. K.R. Srikanthamurthy fulfils this necessity.

by K.R. Srikantha Murthy

Review by Martin: Saturday 27 March, 2010
Essential companion for any student of Ayurveda or those interested to dive deeper into the subject. Asthanga Hridayam means the essence or heart of the eight limbs. In this case it is the eight limbs of Ayurveda means it's eight sub-devisions. It is a compact and detailed exposition of the entire Ayurvedic science. In South India this text is the favoured one and many of the recipes are available in pharmacies which makes it easy for practitioners to prescribe accordingly. The text and translation is very good and considerably the best available today.
