Kāyamāna (कायमान) refers to a “rest-house”, mentioned in verse 3.34-36 of the Aṣṭāṅgahṛdayasaṃhitā (Sūtrasthāna) by Vāgbhaṭa.—Accordingly, “[...] In groves in which the hot-rayed one is darkened by cloud-grazing huge Sal trees and Palmyra palms, (and which are) profuse in bunches of grapes clinging to spring-flowers in a rest-house [viz., kāyamāna] in which (are found) plenty of cloths besprinkled with fragrant cold water, [...]”.

Note: Kāyamāna (“rest-house”) has been transferred to the end of the preceding stanza and rendered etymologically by khaṅ lus daṅ ’thsam byas-pa—“a house made suitable for the body”. (The actual derivation remains yet to be established.) For byas-pa CD read byas-la, which seems corrupt inasmuch as a dative is incompatible with the sentence-construction.—

Kāyamāna is described by Indu as—“a kind of house built from living bamboo etc., thatched with leaves, (and) vari-coloured, or covered with patches of harita grass”—(ārdraveṇvādikalpitaḥ patrapihito vicitro haritaśāḍvalāvacchanno vā gṛhaviśeṣaḥ).
