A Textbook of Shalakya Tantra (Volume 1 – ENT) This TEXT BOOK OF SHALAKYA TANTRA is formed as per new revised C.C.I.M. syllabus for B.A.M.S. course. It is aimed at making students understand the concepts of Ayurveda in easy and efficient way. WORD TO WORD MEANING of shloka is the highlight of the book, since it makes easy for students to understand and memorize the shlokas. It is mainly based on quotations from Sushruta Samhitha and Ashtanga Hridaya. Illustrations and photographs are added wherever necessary. Scope of Research and Research Updates are included at the end of each chapter. Concised chart showing the details of each disease for easy revision are provided at the end of the book. Review questions are included at the end of each section. Model of multiple choice question for competitive exams has been included at the end of the book.

The need for a text book on Shalakya Tantra arose because of the New C.C.I.M. syllabus for the final year BAMS course from this academic year. When I was approached by the publishers for writing a text book on Shalakya Tantra, I was hesitant initially, because of the big task ahead. But it was on the insistance of my students, that I took up this herculian task which almost took two years to complete.

It is written in a simple and lucid language mainly based on the references taken from Sushruta Samhita and Ashtanga Hrudaya. Figures and charts are added wherever necessary. Review Question papers are given at the end of each chapter.

The book from its inception to the completion would not have been possible without the blessings of Lord Dhanvantari and my parents Mr. K.K.Sreedharan and Mrs. Suma Sreedhar. I am also indepted to all my teachers specially Dr. B.A. Venkatesh and Dr. B.N. Ramesh for their guidance and proficiency in the subject. I am grateful to my friends Dr. Ahalya, Dr. Sumithra, Dr. Shoba Rani, Dr. Swarna Gowri, Dr. Syeda Ather Fatima and Dr. Geeta Bhat for their constant support during the work.

The good wishes, encouragement and support given by my husband Dr. K. Sreenivasa Murthy and Son Sujith Sreenivas is worth mentioning here.

I, wholeheartedly thank Mr. Atul Gupta, Chaukhambha Orientalia, Varanasi for having faith in me and entrusting me with this work.
