Abstract

Kashyap Samhita, an ancient classic ayurvedic text mainly deals with the care of children, their diseases and treatment. It also elaborates child nutrition, development, psychology and ideal physical and mental characteristics. It is undoubtedly the most authoritative text of Kaumarabhritya (Paediatrics). 20th chapter of suthrasthana of Kashyapa Samhita, deals with tooth eruption (Danta janmikam). This is the only source book on embryology of teeth in Ayurveda which would have been in greater depths, if we had the text in its complete original form.

Keywords: Kashyapa; Kashyapa Samhita; Kaumarabrithyam; Danta Janmikam; Vriddha Jivakiya Thantram
