Ashtangahridayam is one of the favourite entry points to Ayurveda by newbies & doyens of Ayurveda alike. Ashtangahridayam is believed to be written by Acharya Vagbhata around 7th CE. The text is uniquely crisp, written in the poetic language of Sanskrit in six volumes. Ashtangahridyam means the Heart of Eight Branches of Ayurveda. Unlike many texts before it, Ashtangahridayam is comprehensive and to the point as it describes the core principles and practice of Ayurveda, making it one of the most read treatises in Ayurveda literature.
