Vagbhata – Wikipedia
I regard it as the best version of Ashtanga Hridaya available. All serious students of Ayurveda, East and West, can benefit from studying the book and keeping it as an important reference guide. At hriadya last this lacuna has been filled, with this effort which is written in clear, grammatical English and contains in addition traditional commentaries.
All serious students of Ayurveda will find this rendition of great benefit, a book which is ashtamga to actively benefit the spread of the Science of Life to all who require it. Svadhyaya self study of the Astanga Hridaya is a continuous exercise that an aspiring physician has to engage with to get established in the Ayurvedic thought process and to apply it in clinical practice.
This process can be compared with repeated diving into the ocean to collect precious gems that lie on the ocean floor. Every time, the diver comes up with new discoveries and in a similar manner, the diligent student of the Astanga Hridaya is able to discover many layers of meanings and principles of Ayurveda through the constant svadhyaya.
Sanjay’s verse by verse, word by word translation ashtang interpretation of the Astanga Hridaya is a good example of harvest that can be reaped through Svadhyaya. I am sure this work will serve as a stimulation sahtanga aspirants of Ayurveda to engage in a deeper study of the text. Sanjay Pisharodi is uniquely qualified in both modern and traditional medicine. After completing his degree in palliative medicine, he worked for many years with terminally ill patients and served as the director of ashtwnga hospitals before deciding to leave behind his promising career to study Ayurveda and other traditional healing arts.
He completed an Ayurveda practitioner level course in the United States and advanced training at the National Research Institute of Panchakarma as well as other prominent institutes in India, before going on to study privately with many prominent Ayurvedic asgtanga in South India.
