The Central Council of Indian Medicine has included Vagbhata’s Astanga Hridaya Sutrasthana in B.A.M.S. Syllabus. The knowledge of Sutrasthana of this text is very useful for beginners of Ayurveda to make their base strong enough about Ayurvedic fundamentals and it would be also helpful in grasping the subject easily. The Hindi commentary 'Samvartika' on Sutrasthana of this text written by Prof. Banwari Lal Gaur is very useful. For the benefit of Ayurveda community and learners it is being translated in English language as 'Jyotsna Commentary". The base of this English commentary is fully "Samvartika Vyakhya", but during translation it has been tried to use easier language, to make it easy understandable.
Presently the Ayurveda is receiving global acceptance, therefore this English commentary will definitely attract scholars of different countries to expand their basic knowledge of Ayurveda. The translator Dr. Vishwavasu Gaur tried his best to present his father's great work. It is expected that this book will be useful for prospective readers of global Ayurveda community.
