An eminent ancient authority of Ayurveda. Charakas as wandering
seers or students are mentioned in the early texts susch as the
Shatapatha Brahmana Ashtadhyayi of Panini or in later Puranas. But
as is the case with the Greek Hippocratic text, one does not know
for certain how many authors with similar names were engaged in the
composition of the Charaka Samhita.
Samhita The most famous text of Ayurveda.
During the political, social upheavals throughout Indian history
many of the medical writings were evidently los or destroyed. The
present shape of the Charaka and Sushruta texts demonstrate efforts
made to gather and collate the dispersed documents. Agnivesha, the
original author of most of the text is noted as the famous seer in
the Brihadaranyaka Upanisha datable to 6th century BC.
Roga Diseases of the skin
