Book Description

Sharir is of the most fundamental subject to be learnt by all ayurvedic scholars irrespective of their belonging to individual specific discipline of Astang Ayurveda.

Learning the subject of Sharir aims not only to have detailed knowledge of human anatomy and physiology, but also to gain knowledge about the Indriya, Satva and Atma.

After gaining more than forty years long span of teaching experience in Sharir at State Ayurvedic College, Lucknow at graduate and post graduate level, it was realised by the author that under graduate, post-graduate as well as junior teachers of Sharir can not recite even vulnerable Shloka and pieces of Gadya (Prose) which is a must qualification for an Ayurvedic Scholar. Due to this lacuna one cannot impose his or her personality as a competent teacher of Sharir nor can he gain perfection for becoming an ideal Ayurvedic Physician (Vaidya).

To solve this problem author conceived an idea of preparing a small book which may contain most of the important and essential Sholaka (Padya) and pieces of Gadya (Prose) selected from classical Ayurvedic texts like Charak, Sushruta, Astang Hridaya and Kashyap Samhita etc. along with their references. It was also necessary to mention their proper heading and individual Hindi and English translation, so that they may be easily understood even by non-Hindi knowing scholars as well. This approach will also help in spreading correct and scientific message of ayurvedic science to english speaking world at global level.

The book has been titled 'Sharir Subhashit' because the term Sharir means 'human anatomy' and 'physiology'. Where as the word Subhashit means worth reciting or memorising. Therefore Shloka concerning Sharir like Ayu, Garbha, Asthi, Sandhi, Peshi, Dhamni, Sira and Marma may become easily along with their precise references by Scholars of Ayurveda.

Author also feels that the classical compilation of vulnerable Sanskrit quotations of Sharir Rachna shall also help to throw light on new horizons for doing research in various topics of Sharir.

Keeping all above aims and objects author is presenting this book in the hands of scholarly learners and teachers of ayurveda and expects that this documentation will prove very useful handy work.

Before concluding, author wishes to express his gratefulness to his life partner Dr. Vimleshwari Ji for all cooperation which she provided for completing this job. Author is also grateful to Dr. Padmini Natu for taking care and giving precession to Sanskrit Text to avoid topographical errors. Dr. Manisha of Siwan and Arun Professional Services also deserve author's good wishes and blessings for helping to prepare final manuscript of this book.

I also wish to add the name of Mr. Vikas Kumar Mishra, my devoted student who also co-operated in giving final touches for computerised format of the work.

Jai Sharir,
