"The most comprehensive, clear and user friendly resource book on Ayurveda available today ... provides western medical translations and a valuable glossary." --Joseph Loizza, MD, director, Columbia Presbyterian Center for Meditation and Healing Healthcare, and project director/dharam, Hinduja India Research Centre. "You'll be delighted to discover this comprehensive guide." -- Herb Research News "Gives a spiritual perspective that is lacking in the current alternative literature." --Robert Pincus, MD " 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), author and director, American Institute of Vedic Studies "A 'must-have' reference for any health professional involved in integrative medicine.

[this)] encyclopedia. [A] magnum opus" -- Hinduism Today "(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
