Aruṇadatta (अरुणदत्त) is the author of the Sarvāṅgasundarī or Sundarā: a commentary on the Aṣṭāṅgahṛdayasaṃhitā: one of the three great works of Vāgbhaṭa.—The Aṣṭāṅgahṛdayasaṃhitā consists only of verses. The eight-fold division is observed in the Aṣṭāṅgahṛdayasaṃhitā too, though not as strictly as in the Aṣṭāṅgasaṃgraha. Numerous commentaries on the Aṣṭāṅgahṛdayasaṃhitā [viz., Aruṇadatta’s Sarvāṅgasundarī], many of them unedited so far, can be traced in manuscripts, catalogues, publishers’ lists, etc.

Aruṇadatta was the son of Mṛgāṅkadatta and probably hailed from North-India. Besides the Sarvāṅgasundarī, he appears to have written a commentary on Suśruta and, as will presently be seen, on the Aṣṭāṅgasaṃgraha.

Sanskrit, also spelled संस्कृतम् (saṃskṛtam), is an ancient language of India commonly seen as the grandmother of the Indo-European language family (even English!). Closely allied with Prakrit and Pali, Sanskrit is more exhaustive in both grammar and terms and has the most extensive collection of literature in the world, greatly surpassing its sister-languages Greek and Latin.
