Abstract  Fixing the date of an unexplored manuscript is always a challenging task for a research scholar. The chronology of an unpublished manuscript can be postulated based on internal and external evidence. Here is the study of a manuscript named Kashyapasamhita which is quite different from deemed Kashyapasamhita that is known off. The study was carried out by deciphering and critically editing six manuscripts collected from IPGT & RA (with accession no 6512 and 10779), Tanjore Sarasvati Mahal Library (with accession no.11045), Sampurnananda Library Varanasi (with accession no 1088604) and Oriental Research Institute Mysore (with accession no A129), MS University Baroda Library (with accession no 13474B). The study resulted in the exploration of the concepts regarding Desha (place), Nadi (pulse), Dosha (the three humours of the body), Daivavyapashravya Chikitsa (rituals related to god) and Rasayoga (mercurial formulations). The full paper details the postulation of a period of an unexplored manuscript -Kashyapa Samhita based on the chronology of available Ayurvedic classics.
