EXCERPTS OF DAIVAVYAPASHRAYA CHIKITSA IN UNPUBLISHED MANUSCRIPT KASHYAPA SAMHITA - A NEW OUTLOOK
The concept of Daivavyapashraya Chikitsa (a modality of treatment based on past deeds and pleasing of god) has been given least importance in the available Ayurvedic classics. Here is the study of a manuscript named Kashyapa Samhita which is quite different from deemed Kashyapa Samhita that is known off. The study was carried out by deciphering and critically editing six manuscripts collected from IPGT & RA (with accession no. 6512 and 10779), Tanjore Sarasvati Mahal Library (with accession no. 11045), Sampurnananda Library, Varanasi (with accession no. 1088604) and Oriental Research Institute, Mysore (with accession no. A129), MS University Baroda Library (with accession no. 13474B). This manuscript brings out ample references regarding Daivavyapashraya Chikitsa for different diseases caused due to sinful acts and its treatment.
