He has written many scholarly books and Ayurvedarasayana commentary on Ashtangahridayam is considered his masterpiece. Objective: The objective of this study is to enlighten the contribution of Acharya Hemadri in the field of Ayurveda. Data Source: The books, i.e., Ayurvedarasayana commentary on Ashtangahridayam, Life of Hemadri, Vagbhatavimarshah, KashyapasamhitaUpodghata, etc., have been reviewed. Review Methods: Thorough study of data source followed by critical and rational analysis of the life and works of Hemadri. Results and Conclusion: The commentary is incomplete, but it is written with a practical approach and the author has amended the order of chapters and has organized it more systematically.
