Professional Praise for the Ãyurveda Encyclopedia
More than 14,000 copies sold!
Magazine Reviews
EDITOR’S CHOICE!
“...a comprehensive, detailed primer for serious students of Ayurveda, (yet) its design and layout is
also “lay-person-friendly:” Indeed it is one of the better...texts...; clarif(ies)...Ayurveda for the
Western readers ...provides a deeper insight into the spiritual foundations of Ayurveda; a complete
analysis of how diseases are caused and...progress...Best of all (the) approach is refreshingly
honest.”
The Bodhi Tree Review
“You could buy a half-dozen plus books on Ayurveda to start your reference library, or you could
buy...(this) Encyclopedia. It’s detailed enough for the professional, but accessible to the lay
person...It is useful and entertaining for any student of Ayurveda or as a home self-healing
resource...(a) magnum opus.”
Hinduism Today
“...you‘ll be delighted to discover this comprehensive guide...”
Herb Research News (Herb Research Foundation)
“(one of) the better ‘good reads’...a four-part...encyclopedia...also contains useful appendixes
with features such as client health history form as well as an Ayurvedic glossary.”
Natural Pharmacy
Ayurvedic Doctors
“The Ayurveda Encyclopedia is an important reference volume for all students of Ayurveda and
Yoga, almost a complete course in Ayurveda in itself. Swami Sada Shiva Tirtha has done a
monumental work in putting together so much material in such a concise and clear manner for the
modern reader.”
Dr. David Frawley (Vamadeva Shastri);
Director: American Institute of Vedic Studies
Medical Professionals
For me, this is the next best book after Harrison’s Internal Medicine Text. I think every doctor
should read this book for better insights into the entire psycho-physiologic makeup of his or her
patients”
Patrick J. Conte MD; Radiologist - New Jersey
“...gives a (spiritual) perspective that is lacking in the current alternative literature.”
Robert Pincus, MD
“...a ‘must have’ reference for any health professional involved in integrative medicine. (The author)
has brought an ancient complex teaching into a fully usable western form, that can aid both the
practitioner and the patient to use Ayurvedic Medicine as part of a wholistic, life-enhancing
program.”
Ellen Kamhi PhD RN HNC (“The Natural Nurse”)/Author
“This is an excellent reference book for the pharmaceutical industry for developing formulations
to meet the rising demand of customers. It’s the Merck Manual of Ayurveda.”
Bharat Shulka, President - Pharm-Tech Industries
