`Kharnada Samhita' is a treatise by acharya `Kharanada' on `Kaya Chikitsa' (Internal Medicine). Many ayurvedic commentators like Bhattar Harichandra, Chakrapani, Chandrat, Arundutta, Hemadri had quoted the views of acharya `kharnada' in their respective commentaries. But no much information is available about the acharya `Kharanada' He is also called as `Kharan' by Hemadri. It was in practice from early 4th century AD to 17th century AD.
Acharya `Kharanada' is the first to mention that in newly developed fever the tanghan' (fasting) should be carried out for 6 days only. And from 7th day the palliative 'Pachana' and other measures should be undertaken.
Acharya `Kharanada' shares the views of Charaka that the Teja (fire element) present in Rukshata' (dryness) increases the heat in the body. Hence after the fever is over (Jwara Moksha), one should give unctous 'ghee' as therapeutic measure.
Acharya 'Kharanada' is also of the view that only in 7 days, not all the features of 'Niram Jwara' appears.
Acharya `Kharanada' had also mentioned that Vata can get vitiated by 35 ways. Pitta can get vitiated by 60 ways and Kapha can get vitiated by 10 ways.
However this master work is unavailable today. It is our duty to restore such ancient and important samhita. This book is an attempt in that direction.
Thousands ofAyurvedic manuscript kept at various libraries, mathas across the India are still unexplored and unpublished. Attempt should be made to find lost "Kharnad Samhita" from the unexplored list of ayurvedic manuscripts. The various references of "Kharnad Samhita" given in this book may serve as catalyst in identifying the original work.
Any of the ayurvedic researcher if ever succeeds in getting the original "Kharnad" Samhita' based on this little attempt of ours, the aim of bringing this book will largly be accomplished.
