This is a classical text written by the Late Dr. HL Chitkara who was one of the stalwarts of Homeopathy. He was one of the key people who worked on prescribing only on the basis of mind symptoms. The book is a compilation of rubrics of 892 remedies from Synthetic Repertory of Barthel and Klunker and few other sources (marked with asterix). This is an exclusive work of its kind by which one can understand the link between Materia Medics and Repertory. There are so many rubrics which we are unaware of, with this book all such rubrics come to light. Similarly there are so many remedies for a rubric which we don’t think about in our day-to-day practice which are revealed in the book. This compilation is more comprehensive, authentic, and accurate and elucidate than any other work of this kind done to date.
Improvements in Fourth edition-
The New Comprehensive Homoeopathic Materia Medics of Mind was compiled by redaction from the rubrics of the SYNTHETIC REPERTORY Vol.1. To these rubrics were added other rubrics from authentic sources which were separately compiled under the title UPDATE ADDITIONS TO THE REPERTORY OF MIND. These additions were distinguished by asterisk marks like similar additions in the SYNTHETIC REPERTORY Vol.1.
However the references to these additions were not available in the text of the Materia Medica. For this one had to refer to the separate compilation UPDATE ADDITIONS TO THE REPERTORY OF MIND.
The present Fourth Improved Edition of this treatise is significant in the sense that these references, to the additions have now been incorporated in the text of the Materia Medica itself.
The six sources of additions were identified as:
(1) Additions to Kent's Repertory (Indian reprint 1989) by George Vithoulkas.
(2) Concise Repertory of Homoeopathic Medicine (2nd edition, 1977) by Dr. S. R. Phatak.
(3) Synoptic Key of the Materia Medica and Repertory (Memorial edition, Calcutta) by Dr. C. M. Boger.
(4) Personal notes by Dr. K. S. Srinivasan, Chennai .
(5) Kent's Repertorium Generale (1987) by Dr. J. Kunzli.
(6) Repertory of Hering's Guiding Symptoms to our Materia Medica by C. B. Knerr.

Addition of the rubrics from the Barthel and Klunker which are the most authentic source to take the rubrics from. This work seems to be the then best complied book on Mind rubrics, a great book which will prove to be a best help while solving the difficult cases based on mental generals.
Chitkara's this piece of work has helped to bring out those rubrics which are not that much used and also to clear out thei meaning. Has helped to solve intricate cases in the clinic. A great book to have.
Comprehensive Materia Medica Of Mind is a genuine work on the Mind which is the important section to be educated about. It has proven helpful to me in solving intricate cases.
