Out of all eight branches of Ayurveda, Acarya Caraka gave top priority to General Medicine, where as Susruta discussed the Surgical aspects in detail in his treatise Susruta Samhita. Keeping this in view, Acarya vagbhata gave equal importance to all eight branches and composed a treatise known as Astanga Sangraha.

Though there are a number of treatises available in Ayurvedic literature, the popular texts are known as Caraka Samhita, Susruta Samhita and Astanga Sangraha. So, these texts are much more familiar in the name of Vrhattrayi - greater trio. Madhavanidana, Sargadhara Samhita and Bhavaprakasa became popular as Laghutrayi - lesser trio. The texts mentioned in greater trio I.e. Caraka Samhita and Susrutha Samhita are called as Akara granthas. That means they are self authentic where as Astanga Sangraha can be called as Prakarana grantha - which has been written by quoting the references from other texts.

A Hand Book of Astanga Sangraha (Sutra-sthana) is a précised and concised book in English for the benefit of 1st year B A M S Students. In this book, the author has incorporated the important quotations and the summary of each and every chapter according to the need of the freshly joined students of Ayurveda.

In the present work, Latin names of the drugs, certain photographs as well as line diagrams are also incorporated for a better comprehension. It is hoped that this book will be useful for the students in understanding the Basic principles of Ayurveda.

Astanga Sangraha is one of the authentic texts on the science of life, and hence it has been grouped under Brhattrayi along with Caraka Samhita and Susruta Samhita. The name of the treatise itself suggests that it is a compilation of the eight branches of Ayurveda such as: Kaya, Bala, Graha, Urdhvanga, Saya, Damstra, Jara and Vrsa.
