In this Online Materia Medica Herbal Database of Ayurvedic Herbs we give preference to listing an herb first using its English Name if it is in common everyday use (such as Pomegranate for Dadima, Grapes for Draksha , Licorice for Yasthi Madhu, Cumin for Jiraka, Calamus Root for Vacha or Turmeric for Haridra).

Then, if there is no common everyday use English Name, then we prefer to use the Ayurvedic Sanskrit Name since this is the name most commonly found in the ancient Ayurvedic Classics such as Charaka, Sushruta, Vagbhata, Bhavaprakasha, Sharngadhara and others.

After that, we list in preference the Pharmaceutical Name followed by the Botanical Name. While both in Latin, the Pharmaceutical names require the listing of the plant part and are thus more accurate in identifying the particular specific medicinal uses of a plant species rather than the less accurate, less specific Botanical name.

We then list the Mandarin Name used in China and Taiwan in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) if that name is available. This facilitates communication with our colleagues in the Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine fields. It also helps us as Ayurvedic Practitioners to obtain a wider variety of Ayurvedic herbs (that are also used in TCM) more readily and more affordably than we could by only using Indian or Nepalese sources such as Banyan Botanicals, Om Organics and Bazaar of India (Vedik Herbs), Pukka Herbs (http://www.pukkaherbs.com).

Lastly, we list the Hindi Name, although these are rarely used in the West (USA, Canada, UK) where the Sanskrit name is preferred. The except to this rule is the use of Hindi name Kutki instead of Sanskrit name Katuka and Hindi name Neem instead of Sanskrit name Nimba.

From the explanatory introduction: “Good deal of information and research work has been carried out on Medicinal Plants during last few decades in various fields. The research scientists, Govt. and Non Govt. Organizations and individuals interested in plant drugs find it difficult to get on the spot information collectively on diverse aspects of medicinal plants as the literature is widely scattered. A need, therefore was felt to collect all the information and compile it in the form of Data Base on Medicinal Plants Used in Ayurveda publication. Like the earlier volumes, it presents a brief and concise account about each species covering the selected aspects pertaining to Botanical/Ayurvedic nomenclature, vernacular names, description, distribution, flowering and fruiting period, parts used of the plants along with actions and uses including Ayurvedic properties and Dose and Photographs of plants have been given. The pharmacognosy, chemical constituents, pharmacological activities, toxicology, trade and commerce, substitute and adulterant have also been included. Brief information about formulations and preparations, propagation and cultivation is also given. Exhaustive bibliography containing up to date references is also incorporated.”

Nalanda Online University's teachings are based especially on the Sutra tradition of the Dharma Flower Lotus Sutra, the Avatamsaka Sutra, the Shurangama Sutra, the Ksitigarbha Sutra, the Bhaisajya Guru Sutra, the Dharani Sutra, the Vajra Sutra, the Prajna Paramita Hridayam Heart Sutra, and their commentaries (shastras) by the above Arya Tripitakacharya Dharma Masters and the Mantra tradition (see Mantra). In respect (bhakti), we say “Om Namo” to them all for their often selfless (no self) and anonymous contributions to Ayurveda and Chinese Medicine.
