Nārāyaṇapaṇḍita (नारायणपण्डित) or “Śrī Nārāyaṇa Paṇḍita” is the author of the Jvaranirṇaya: an Ayurvedic manuscript dealing exclusively with types of jvara (fevers) from the 16th century CE.—The author of Jvaranirṇaya, Śrī Nārāyaṇa Paṇḍita is known to be the disciple of Nāgeśa and the son of Kṛṣṇa Paṇḍita. He is also identified to be the younger brother of Nāganātha who was one of the teachers of Lakṣmaṇa Paṇḍita who wrote Nidānapradīpa (Meulenbeld 2002). Sri Nārāyaṇa Paṇḍita is also the author of Vaidyavallabhaṭīkā and Siddhāntasaṃcaya which are the commentaries of the texts Siddhāntacikitsā and Śārṅgadharā’s Triśatī respectively (Meulenbeld, 2002 , p. 265). The time period of this treatise is corroborated to be sixteenth century CE from the fact that Śrī Nārāyaṇa Paṇḍita has written a commentary for Śārṅgadharā’s Triśatī on jvara which was written in fifteenth century CE.
