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.
Āyurveda (आयुर्वेद, ayurveda) is a branch of Indian science dealing with medicine, herbalism, taxology, anatomy, surgery, alchemy and related topics. Traditional practice of Āyurveda in ancient India dates back to at least the first millenium BC. Literature is commonly written in Sanskrit using various poetic metres.
