Till now, no treasure was available to the readers of Ayurveda. Chaukhamba publication is happy to bring out this collection.
Prepared under the guidance of Dr. Kanjiv Lochan, who has been regularly writing for Ayurveda; this book would be very useful to those students who get bewildered due to a multiplicity of synonyms of various Ayurvedic herbs.
The book would also address the lacuna created by the unavailability of the Praya Ratna Mala of Madhavakar. At the end of major names of various diseases have been quoted from all the major Indian languages. An index based on botanical terms of various herbs adds to the value of this publication.
