The Charaka Samhita also includes sections on the importance of diet, hygiene, prevention, medical education, the teamwork of a physician, nurse and patient necessary for recovery to health.

Exploring the secrets of the Universe as far as physics can go, and even beyond.. Along with its Vedantic integration. This book has two sections. The first is a work in physics which presents exploration of Avyakta – the hidden metaphysical reality behind the apparent universe – through scientific study. (A condensed version of this part was published in the Prespacetime Journal Vol 7 Issue 16 on 08/01/2017, titled “Avyakta – The Fabric of Space”.) The concept is explored to complement the Standard Model and explain gravitation, along with the role of avyakta behind various phenomena like matter waves, energy in the vacuum state, spiral arms of galaxies, dark matter, Higgs boson and virtual particles which pop out of nowhere, big bang and cosmic inflation, and the anti-particle.

There seems to be a widespread notion that belief is, in itself, a good thing, but in this book Anthony Campbell argues that, for at least some people, freeing oneself from all belief systems brings a huge sense of relief. He illustrates this by describing his own experience of Roman Catholicism and Transcendental Meditation. He also looks at the evidence for miraculous cures for cancer and at ideas about the soul, with particular reference to survival. And he has a discussion of how religions are transmitted, which he thinks depends on story-telling and language as much as on formal belief. This is a wide-ranging book with a lot of ideas.
The Vedic Age is the “heroic age” of ancient Indian civilization. It is also the formative period when the basic foundations of Indian civilization were laid down. These include the emergence of early Hinduism as the foundational religion of India, and the social/religious phenomenon known as caste.

Hindu mythology are narratives found in Hindu texts such as the Vedic literature, epics like Mahabharata and Ramayana, the Puranas, the regional literatures like Periya Puranam. Hindu mythology is also found in widely translated popular texts such as the Panchatantra and Hitopadesha, as well as Southeast Asian texts.
Hindu mythology does not often have a consistent, monolithic structure. The same myth typically appears in various versions, and can be represented differently across socio-religious traditions. These myths have also been noted to have been modified by various philosophical schools over time and particularly in the Hindu tradition. These myths are taken to have deeper, often symbolic, meaning, and have been given a complex range of interpretations
