About this title


The Charaka Samhita is the oldest literature in the world on health and on the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of disease. It was first translated into Arabic and Hebrew. The original literature is written in Sanskrit in the Devanagari script. This literature, which is thousands of years old, is very hard for the general European reader to understand today.  Ayuvedacharya Dr. Rajpoot has lived in Europe for 27 years and has learned about the European way of thinking during this time. He explains the Charaka Samhita very clearly, using examples from present-day European culture, so that today's reader can comprehend it.
