The COVID-19 pandemic has emerged as a global health emergency of international concern since its first identification, resulting in millions of deaths and economic disruption. The healthcare systems across the globe are at the hilt and being tested for effective management against COVID-19. Employing our ancient traditional system and integrative approach, our nation has dealt with this bolstering virus competently, which is evident from the significantly low mortality rates in India. Param Pujya Acharya Ji, with his sheer dedication, astute guidance, pragmatic approach, and deep knowledge of the ancient Indian traditional system of medicine, has written a new success story by developing an effective medicine against COVID-19. Patanjali Research Institute, Haridwar, Uttarakhand, is a lineage representative of ancient Indian Vedic and sage traditions. A team of dedicated scientists at Patanjali Research Institute has worked relentlessly to develop Ayurvedic formulations into effective medicine by screening close to 1500 phytochemicals from more than 200 medicinal plants. This was a path-finding journey with experiences shared in this book titled “Ayurveda against COVID19”. We hope that this body of work will serve as a capstone of guidance to develop a new series of Ayurvedic formulations into medicines that would be acceptable to the modern medical and scientific fraternity worldwide. By sharing our research through this book, we wish to reach a greater and wider readership and, in the process, hope to materialize our humble efforts towards ensuring the well-being of humankind worldwide. May this excellence of scientific practice in Ayurveda find its due destination!
