Jivaka, also titled Jivaka Komarabhacca (Jīvaka Komārabhacca), was a famous physician in Ancient India, including personal physician of Indian King Bimbisara and Gautama Buddha. He lived in the Magadha capital of Rajagaha during late 5th century BC in the time of King Bimbisara (and later Ajatashatru). He was trained and excelled in traditional Indian medicine (e.g. Ayurveda), due to his intelligence, dilligence, and selfless service. Believed to have been inspired by the teachings of the Buddha, Jivaka was also well versed in Asana and meditation practice. He is also considered the father of Siddha-Veda.
