Ayurveda (science of life)

Source: eJournal of Indian Medicine: Jajjaṭa’s Nirantarapadavyākhyā and Other Commentaries on the Carakasaṃhitā

Jejjaṭa (जेज्जट) (or Jajjaṭa) is the auther of the Nirantarapadavyākhyā: one of the earliest extant and, therefore, one of the most important commentaries on the Carakasaṃhitā.—Little is known about Jajjaṭa, other than what has been present in the earlier articles. However, some information has come to light that helps to confirm his probably date. Most reliable authorities put Jajjaṭa in the seventh-eighth century A.D., due to his possible tutorship with Vāgbhaṭa, whose treatises probably datefrom the seventh century.
