Acharya Vatsya – Time Period, Works, Contribution To Ayurveda

Kasyapa Samhita, a treatise of the ancient period has remained the only sourcebook on Kaumarbhritya till the 19th century AD.

Though the initial arrangement of sections and the number of chapters of each section is similar to Charaka Samhita, however, subjects dealt with are original, some of which are incomparable.

Kasyapa Samhita was lost during the commencement of Kali Yuga; a copy of it was conserved by one of the Yakshas named ‘Anayasa’ for the advantage of mankind.

In the later period, Vatsya’ belonging to Kasyapa family acquired the treatise from ‘Anayasa’ and redacted the same in eight parts.
