Illustrated Caraka Samhita Volume 1 Caraka Samhita is considered as one of the best compendia in the literature of Ayurveda and hence it has been given the status of Brhattrayi. As a teacher of Samhita it is my long-cherished dream to translate the entire text of the Caraka Samhitā into English with Cakrapani commentary. The objective of taking up this project is that the core concepts of the compendium should reach to every Ayurvedik student. According to CCIM Syllabus Caraka Samhitā has been divided into 2 parts viz. Pürvärdha and Uttarardha. Pūrvārdha consist Sūtrasthāna, Nidānasthāna, Vimānasthana, Särirasthana and Indriyasthāna, whereas Uttarārdha consists the remaining sections such as Cikitsāsthāna, Kalpasthāna and Siddhisthāna. We have planned to complete the entire project into 4 volumes. The first volume is Sūtrasthāna and completed successfully within the stipulated time. The second volume contains Nidānasthāna to Indriyasthāna. The third volume consists Cikitsāsthāna and the 4th volume contains Kalpasthāna and Siddhisthāna and will be published shortly.
