""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
