The intent of the Handbook is to present the classical position as much as possible, thus there are many citations included in this work. While not yet a textbook–stand-alone-volume–for independent study this work is evolving in this direction. As time passes the explanatory remarks are being introduced for more complete presentation and comprehension of the material.

The Handbook is intended as a broad survey of the topic of Ayurvedic herbology and not as an exhaustive study of the subject. $75. incl. S&H (US only)
