Below is the copy of the front page of the book RASODHDHAR TANRA, a classic composition of Ayurveda in GUJARATI LANGUAGE.

Among the many unique features of this book, one is that it contains the formulea of seasons of a years, as classified by Ayurveda, the RITUS, ras aushadhi formulea known as GRISHMANAND RAS to be used in summer season, SHISHIRANAND RAS for Shishir ritu ailments and so on.
The most attractive features of this book is given in RAJYAKSHAMA chapter, where we find the diseases features similar to AIDS, HIV, Hepatitis B and so on and many more.
A Formula of MAHASARSWATI SURA in chapter RASAYANA is vey attractive to prepare the SURA for Ayushyavardhak purposes. It seems to me that at the time of Monarchy in Gujarat states, the Ayurvedicians at that time formulated the formula for kings and rulers. The uses of this SURA is much mote better descripted in comparison to MRIT SANJIVANI SURA. In this RASAYANA chapter many more Rasayana are formulated for AYU Vardhan and to avoid early Old age. The mentioned formulea are beneficial for the treatment of the OLD AGE problems and in GERIATRICS ailments successfully.
In year 1961 , I was living in GUJARAT in ANKALESHWAR near to Chyota Bazar, a railway station and small city, en route from BADODARA to SURAT railway line. I studied there few months. Therefore , I can read and understand Gujarati Language.
