Jeevak – the “Real” father of Medical Science
Jeevak kaumarbhritya (525-450 B.C), contemporary of Lord Buddha, was the first “Historical” doctor of India and the world, whose skill and excellence in field of Medical science had no bounds. He was not a doctor of any particular state but his work field was the whole “Aryavart” (Northern &Central India) and he was a doctor of both ordinary and extra-ordinary people. He successfully treated iconic personalities like lord Buddha, Magadh emperor – Bimbasar & Avanti King – Chand Pradyot. The whole Tripitak literature in Pali language is full of accounts related to the “Medical Miracles” of Jeevak rashtriya.
