A touching and reverent hommage to Hahnemann from a devout disciple.
A picture biography of Hahnemann with reminiscences by a devouted disciple.
The author has written this book with much emotion and feeling and reverence for Hahnemann. He consider it a Pilgrimage from Hahnemann`s birth place in Meissen through Leipzig, Kothen and Paris and some smaller towns to his last resting place in Paris. The houses he lived in, streets in his name, monuments & statues, paintings and pictures from all over the world. To view his personal belongings and articles in personal use is indeed a great and touching experience for the Homoeopathy. These include his personal visiting card, seal, chairs that he used, office table, stethoscopes, caps, original bottles of medicines he used, and a Medicine chest personally prepared by him. Unusual and very special pictures are locks of his hair; the very original Cinchona bark used in experiment in 1790 alongwith Cullen`s Materia Medica; copy of Hufeland`s journal published in 1796, which contains the famous Hahnemann`s article on New Principle. As an Indian the author has given some details of the monuments & statues in India and a few pictures of the manner in which annual celebrations are held on 10th April, birth anniversary of Hahnemann, by garlanding and floral tributes, a typical Indian custom, as for saints and sages and deities. These also emphasise government participation. It can be considered as the author`s homage to his Guru, Christian Friedrich Samuel Hahnemann.
