Product description

In this textbook, the world-renowned Ayurvedic doctor Dr. Vasant Lad teaches the fundamental principles of Ayurveda in a dynamic and inspiring way. When Vasant Lad unveils the mysteries of the ancient Indian art of healing, he presents this centuries-old knowledge in a way that makes it easily accessible to the modern student while still remaining true to its roots. Vasant Lad describes the world view of Ayurveda and how it permeates all levels of human existence. In unique conciseness and depth, he explains the basic structures and functions of body, mind and soul, their structure and interaction. He shows the importance of the three temperaments (Doshas), the digestive fire (Agni), the seven body tissues (Dhatus), the three waste products (Malas), the subtle energies (Ojas, Tejas and Prana) and how their imbalance can cause disease. The book is rich in illustrations, tables and practical examples and gives the reader a deep understanding of Ayurveda. dr Lad's teachings are of uncommon clarity and beauty, pointing the way to true health, balance and joy. The work is one of the most important textbooks of Ayurveda and is already recommended as a basic work by many schools worldwide. It could help Ayurveda to achieve a breakthrough in German-speaking countries. "Dr. Vasant Lad's publications, starting with this first volume on the basic principles, are probably the most comprehensive Ayurveda textbooks yet to come out in the West. This series of books is sure to revolutionize the study and practice of Ayurveda worldwide. All Ayurveda students should take it seriously." dr David Frawley Pandit Vamadeva Shastri "Dr. Vasant Lad is a true Vaidya - a knower of reality. His latest work, The Handbook of Ayurveda, confirms his undisputed position as the foremost expert in this ancient art of healing." dr Deepak Chopra and Dr. David Simon "A mature instructional work for the western reader, written with great clarity, an expansive heart and humility before life. .. This wonderful foundational book, which generations of students will enjoy delving into, is a must read." Annette Koehler Dr. Vasant Lad learned Ayurveda firsthand in India, but has lived and taught in the United States for many years. Perhaps that is one of the reasons why he is able to bridge the gap between old Indian ways and Western thinking like no other. "Anyone who wants to get serious and deep into the subject of Ayurveda will find the best conceivable introduction in this textbook. A systematically structured, profound, multi-layered textbook of a special kind, written in simple and understandable language. I wouldn't I'm surprised when it quickly becomes THE standard work on Ayurveda. For me, this book - the longer I read it - feels more and more like holy scripture. I only ever read short passages - and it regularly almost leaves me speechless . How can one person convey so much depth with so few words?" Birgit Kratz Vasant Lad, B.M.A.S., M.A.Sc. is an Ayurvedic doctor. He received his Bachelor of Ayurvedic Medicine and Surgery (B.M.A.S.) degree from Pune University in 1968 and a Master of Ayurvedic Science (M.A.Sc.) degree from Pune, India in 1980. He worked for three years as Medical Director at the Ayurveda Hospital in Pune. For seven years he held a chair as Professor of Clinical Medicine at Pune University College of Ayurvedic Medicine, where he was a teacher for many years. Vasant Lad's academic and practical training includes the study of allopathy (western medicine) and surgery as well as traditional Ayurveda.
