There is little information on Sivadasa Sen. From what is available, it is known that he was born (somewhere between 1454 - 1474 AD[1]) in the Vaidya guild to Ananta Sen in Malancika, a village in Bengal. Another indication of his birthplace is from his name viz., Sen and that he was a Vaisnava.


Sivadasa Sen's commentary on Caraka Samhita is known as Tattwa-candrika and was written in 1448 CE--however, only Sutra-s 1-27, are still available today. The manuscript belongs to the Bombay Royal Asiatic Society Library.


  1. It is known Guda Bengal was ruled by Barbaka Saha at the time of his birth and his rule was from 1454 to 1474 A. D.
