From the Jacket:
The Author has explained well the concept of the origin of the Universe utilizing the two ancient theories giving modern interpretation. Especially the first one is the same as the one accepted by the modern Scientist.
The Author has Successfully postulated two hypotheses giving numerical value to the molecules of Panchabhutas by advancing the theory of 10 particles to be counted of combining two prominent bhutas to show numerical excess of the constituent bhutas in the formation of a particular rasa. This theory goes a long way to explain many perplexing problems. For example: Why Lavana Rasa is "Ushna" when Ap and Agni constitute Lavana Rasa? It is not enough to say that it is due to Bhutasannivesa Prabhava. Similarly the author has successfully determined the numerical strength of Trigunas in Panchabhutas & Tridoshas also. This facilitates to study Panchabhutas objectively.
The Author's explanation of the Moolaprakrithi, Trigunas, Panchabhutas, Tridoshas and shadrasas with modern concepts is outstanding; though departing a little orthodox stereotype thoughts.
His observation on the role of bio-chemicals is the continuation of role of Tridoshas. His Scientific explanations establish Neurohumoral Theory a wonderful exposure to the present Students, Teachers & Researchers whose background modern scientific knowledge enables them to reconcile the ancient theory of Tridoshas & present modern theory of bio-chemicals.
It is the Author who is the first to claim that Susrutacharya is the father of Chemistry though he is known as the father of Modern Surgery. Any body will be convinced if he goes through the Samyoga dharmas given by Susrutacharya viz; Vishamam Vidagdha (law of combustion), Anyonyanu Pravesa (reciprocal reaction), Sarveshu Sarvesham Sannidhya Masti. (The exchange of electrons from the external peripheries of the combining two different atoms of different substances.)
