For sometime it is being felt that the number of Ayurvedic Physicians who can treat the most difficult of ailments with the help of the ancient system of medicine is fast diminishing. Based on their vast experience of the treatment of such difficult and complicated cases, such Ayurvedic physicians could tackle cases with confidence and care. Today the number of such competent Ayurvedic Physicians could tackle cases with confidence and care, and such physicians can be counted only on fingers. Their tribe is fast disappearing. The treatment they prescribed his disappeared with their passing away. The world of Ayurveda has thus suffered an irreparable loss. The influence of modem system of to have lost faith in this system and confidence in themselves. The greatest harm to Ayurveda has been caused by the prolification of numerous companies manufacturing patent Ayurvedic medicines of questionable quality and due to their commission agents. Depending on these manufactures, the ayurvedic physician themselves make little effort to prepare genuine medicines themselves, resorting to the easy course of prescribing patented medicine The number of Ayurvedic physicians who undertake to manufacture their own medicines by pharmacoepial procedure is very few.

Under these circumstances, the effort of Shri Gulraj Sharma Misra at producing an authentic treatise "Shddha proyoga lalika" is most welcome. It is based on his vast experience of over 55 years, both in clinical and practical side. I am sure this book will prove of immense benefit to all practitioners of Ayurveda who desire to attain success in this profession.

The book is divided into 36 chapters and some 200 shlokas in Sanskrit. Easy to comprehend, it is written in simple "Anustup Chanda" so that it can be followed by graduates in Ayurved. Difficult Sanskrit words have been avoided. This book is based on Shri Gulraj Sharma's research experiences of over 55 years, particularly on difficult cases encountered in "pakvasa Hospital" attached to "Ayurveda Mahavidyalaya."

I am sure this effort pf Shri Gulraj, will be particularly appreciated by the students seeking to practice Ayurvedic system of Medicine.

The most significant feature of this book is that Vaidya Lal Chandra Jaiswal has rendered the translation of the book in a simple English, so that even an ordinary student can follow it and benefit from this book.
