The Human anatomy (Shareera Rachana Shareera) is an important for all allied health sciences. It is one of the fundamental subject to the health science.
The Ayurvedic life science is also based on the Human anatomy and physiology (Shareera Rachana and Kriya Shareera), without the knowledge of Shareera Rachana and Kriya, the physician cannot become perfect in the profession.
So the Ancient Acharyas like Shusruta, Charak and Vagbhata were given importance to the knowledge of Rachana Shareera. The Acharya Shusruta was mentioned in the share era sthana of Susruta Samhita, other Acharyas are also explained about the human anatomy in their Samhitas. The human body dissection was described in Susruta Samhita.
The need of Ayurvedic human anatomy manual is very essential to the students of Ayurvedic undergraduates. The Ayurvedic students are under pressure to obtain the essential knowledge of Ayurvedic anatomy. I found that there is deficient of anatomy manual in the course of Ayurveda, keeping in mind we made some effort to prepare the Ayurvedic human anatomy manual. This handbook has been specially designed to fulfil the requirements of undergraduates.
In this book care has been taken to ensure that the text provides all the information. Several innovations have been made to make the subject easy to understand.
In the past the education was aimed at imparting comprehensive idea ofthe subject. Now the approach is integrated with specificity. The regulations of C.C.I.M. are such that the student should have both knowledge of Ayurveda in parlance with the contemporary science. Keeping these things in mind the present book is written. The book is student friendly and prepares to face the examination and to gain comparative knowledge as well.
