The Caraka Samhita, is originally the work of Agnivesa, who composed it by collecting the teachings of his teacher Punaravasu Atreya. This text presumably small in size and content was later improved and enlarged by Caraka on whose name it came to be known popularly as the Caraka-samhita. The subject matter of the Caraka-samhita has been divided into eight sthanas (sections). Caraka samhita earned great reputation and became the most authoritative text representing the School of Medicine. It was translated into Persian and thence to Arabic in the 8th cent. A.D., Caraka-samhita has maintained this status till today when all the other ancient texts of Medicine almost went into oblivion.
