Saṅghaguhya (सङ्घगुह्य) is the father of Vāgbhaṭa: the author of three voluminous works in the medical literature of the Hindus.—According to the colophon of the Aṣṭāṅgahṛdayasaṃhitā:—“Of the work Aṣṭāṅgahṛdaya by the great physician named Vāgbhaṭa, a son of the master of physicians named Saṅghaguhya, (this) is the sixth (section), being the Uttarasthāna. The medical research-work entitled Aṣṭāṅgahṛdayasaṃhitā is (herewith) entirely finished. By India’s Professor Jārandhara and Revising Great Translator
Monk Rin-chen-bzaṅ-po (Ratnabhadra, as his name would be in Sanskrit) it has been [translated], revised, and edited”.

Note: Saṅghaguhya is the exact re-translation of the Tibetan name. In the Sanskrit colophons of Aṣṭāṅgahṛdayasaṃhitā I, II, III & VI and As. I & VI, however, Vāgbhaṭa’s father is called Siṃhagupta, which would be Seṅ-ge-sbas-pa in Tibetan. Interestingly enough, Aufbecht (Cat. Bodl. viii p. 303 a) records Saṃghagupta as the principal spelling of his MSS no 741—42.
