This volume comprises of the Nidana sthana, Cikitsita sthana and Kalpasiddhi sthana-the third, fourth and fifth sections of Astangahrdaya of Vagbhata. As usual the text in original and its faithful English translation have been furnished.

These three sections deal mainly with one branch of Ayurveda, viz., Kaya cikitsa (inner medicine). Since the remaining seven branches will be dealt in the Uttara-sthana-the sixth and the last section, consolidated lists of diseases, drugs, etc., will be appended to the next volume.

I have dedicated this volume to another preceptor of mine-Pandit N.L. Bhattacharya, who showered his affection on me and who also enriched the literature of Ayurveda in Kannada language; hence a few words here about his life and work.

Pandit Bhattacharya (1883-1961) served as Professor at the Govt. Ayurveda College, Mysore (1928-53). With wide knowledge of both Sanskrit and Ayurveda, he could ably explain many moot points in the doctrines substantiating them with textual references. He possessed special knowledge of almost all the herbs and drugs available in the forests and those used by Ayurveda physicians and so was being consulted as an "expert" by Ayurvedists, Botonists, officials of the forest department and many others. He was mainly responsible for the establishment of a herb garden attached to the Ayurveda College. Apart from Dravyaguna vijnana he taught many subjects of Ayurveda and his lecture notes became text-books. Thus were published the Agada tantra, Sutrasthana of Astangahrdaya (1956), Prasuti tantra-striroga and Kaumarabhrtya (1957), the remaining sthanas of Astanga-hrdaya and the first part of Susruta samhita (1959). Inspite of advancing age he was able to complete the translation of the second part of Susruta samhita and the whole of Caraka samhita. But he did not live to see these in print and all these have been published later. Students of Ayurveda in Karnataka owe a great debt of gratitude to this ideal teacher.

I convey my sincere thanks to my friend Prof. Jyotirmitra for continuing his help at the press. I also thank my daughter Smt. K.S. Revathi, B.A. for her flawless typing of the manuscripts. I am beholden to M/s. Krishnadas Academy, Vara-nasi, the reknowned Indological publishers for bringing out this volume without any delay.
