HERBAL MONOTHERAPY OF SIDHASARASAMHITA

K. NISHTESWAR, VIDHYA UNNIKRISHNAN.

Abstract
Sidhasarasamhita is one of the important texts of Indian traditional medical literature. The exact period of the work is unknown, but according to
the available evidence the work may be placed in the 8th century AD. Ravigupta’s distinctive contribution to Ayurvedic literature seems to have been
the arrangement of the traditional knowledge into 31 chapters, each dealing with a different subject. The author of sidhasarasamhita included many
single and simple recipes useful in particular disease conditions. In total 151 single drug recipes are included in Sidhasarasamhita. After a thorough
analysis of the Charakasamhita, Susruthasamhita and works of Vaghbata 16 recipes were noted, which may be considered as the contributions of
Ravigupta to the Ayurvedic materia medica. It appears that medieval ayurvedic compendia have religiously followed Sidhasarasamhita in
formulating various therapeutic recipes.

Key words: Ravigupta, Sidhasarasamhita, Single drug recipes
