Ātapatra (आतपत्र) refers to a “parasol” (for protection from heat), and is mentioned in verse 2.32 of the Aṣṭāṅgahṛdayasaṃhitā (Sūtrasthāna) by Vāgbhaṭa.—Accordingly, “[...] equipped with parasol [viz., ātapatra] and foot-gear, one shall move about, looking (ahead) as far as a yoke; but at night (only) for an urgent matter (and) with stick, head-wear, (and) companion”.
Note: Ātapatra (“parasol”) (lit. “heat-protector”) has been translated by gdugs dkar (“white parasol”).
Āyurveda (आयुर्वेद, ayurveda) is a branch of Indian science dealing with medicine, herbalism, taxology, anatomy, surgery, alchemy and related topics.

Ātapatra (आतपत्र) refers to the “royal umbrella”, according to the seventeenth story of the Vetālapañcaviṃśati in the Kathāsaritsāgara, chapter 91. Accordingly, as the Vetāla said to king Trivikramasena:—“... servants are bound to preserve their masters even by the sacrifice of their lives. But kings are inflated with arrogance, uncontrollable as elephants, and when bent on enjoyment they snap as under the chain of the moral law. [...] And the royal umbrella [viz., ātapatra] keeps off from them the rays of truth, as well as the rays of the sun; and their eyes, smitten by the gale of prosperity, do not see the right path. [...]”.
The Kathāsaritsāgara (‘ocean of streams of story’), mentioning ātapatra, is a famous Sanskrit epic story revolving around prince Naravāhanadatta and his quest to become the emperor of the vidyādharas (celestial beings). The work is said to have been an adaptation of Guṇāḍhya’s Bṛhatkathā consisting of 100,000 verses, which in turn is part of a larger work containing 700,000 verses.
Kavya (काव्य, kavya) refers to Sanskrit poetry, a popular ancient Indian tradition of literature. There have been many Sanskrit poets over the ages, hailing from ancient India and beyond. This topic includes mahakavya, or ‘epic poetry’ and natya, or ‘dramatic poetry’.
