Ashtanga Hridayam, the “Heart or Essence of all the Eight Branches of Ayurveda,” is one of the fundamental ancient root texts of Ayurveda. It is written in a poetic form with beautiful Sanskrit verse, making it easier for a student to remember important subjects in a concise form. Today the Ashtanga Hridayam continues to serve as a root source for Ayurvedic philosophy and protocol, providing clear guidelines in all aspects of health, including nutrition.
