THE original title of this work was Science of sphygmica or sage Kaṇāda on pulse, which was modified here to avoid the term sphygmica or the modern term sphygmology.
Pulse diagnosis is a diagnostic technique used to assess internal conditions. It was part of the premodern Western medical models and is still used in 'traditional' Asian medical systems. Ayurveda, traditional Chinese medicine, traditional Mongolian medicine, Siddha medicine, traditional Tibetan medicine, and Unani.
Sage Kanada, also known as Kashyapa, Uluka, Kananda and Kanabhuk, was an Indian sage and philosopher who probably lived before Buddha. He founded the Vaisheshika school of Hindu philosophy. The Vaisheshika Sutra, or Aphorisms of Kanada, introduces one of the earliest systematic realist ontology system. Kaviraj Russick Láll Gupta states that his translation is based on the Nadivijnana or 'Pulse Science' but no other references suggest the origin of this work or the attribution to Sage Kanada. Historically, the knowledge of pulse clearly emerged in an organized manner in the Sharangadhara samhita compiled by Acharya Sharangadhara sometime in 14th century A.D. [1]
This study covers the description of the Pulses, timing of examination, pulse frequencies, fever-related conditions and other types of examinations.

Yoga sutras of Patanjali with The Jewel's Lustre Authors:

Among the numerous translations of the Aphorisms of Patanjali, what differentiates this work is the inclusion of the Jewel lustre, Maniprabha, a commentary written by Ramananda-sarasvati in the 16th or early 17th century. The commentary reflects an evolution in the analysis of Patanjali’ Yoga Sutras placing the attention on the mental rather than moral, analytical rather than spiritual processes. As the name suggests, the thought reflects a clear lucidity of interpretation and deserves the attention of all students of Indian thought in general and yoga specifically.
The title of the book is an allusion to the passage in the Comment on Yoga-sūtra i. 36 Here the mind becomes stable in intent contemplation and unconcerned with its transitory and particular conditions. It is illumined by insight into its universal qualities. “It becomes like a ray of the sun or the moon or of a planet or a gem. Having attained to a feeling of its self, it becomes waveless like the Great Sea, calmed, endless, with a sense of nothing but itself.”

Not much is known about Rev. Arthur H. Ewing (1864–1912). He was a prominent Presbyterian missionary and academic who resided in Allahabad, India. He has left us three articles, the present one, the ‘Çāradā-tilaka Tantra’ (J. of the American Oriental Society, 1902, 65-76)) and ‘A message from Southern Asia’ (The Church and Missionary Education, 1908, 88094).
The present one explores the origin and estimates the values of the Hindu explanations and definitions of the series of terms comprising Prāṇa or vital breaths. It provides a rare analysis of the question of proper interpretation and translation of the various terms. As such, it is a fundamental work for all those seeking a deeper understanding of the concepts pertaining to psycho-physiology as understood in Hindu texts.
