Mahādevadeva’s Hikmatprakāśa – A Sanskrit treatise on Yūnānī medicine. Part III: Text and commentary of selected verses from Section III with an annotated English translation

Jan Meulenbeld


Section three is divided into 21 chapters (varga), arranged according to the name of the type of preparation and the Arabic alphabet. The construction of the verses is very loose.

These verses are accompanied, but not continuously, by a vākya and/or a ṭīkā.

The vākya is not always in Persian or Persian and Sanskrit, but may also be entirely in Sanskrit.
