Ashtanga Sangraha / Ashtanga Hridayam are the work of a person named Vagbhata. There are two works by a person or persons with this name. The Ashtanga Sangraha has approximately 9250 verses and is written in both poetry with prose. The Hridayam (about 7120 verses) is written in prose and seems to have a slightly different organization of material than the former. Both works have been dated about the same time and are thought to date after the Caraka and Sushruta Samhitas (400 CE).
The exposition is relatively straightforward and also deals primarily with kayacikitsa. In this work we see the kapha sub-doshas are also listed and described--completing our modern edifice of vata, pitta, kapha with their five sub-types. Its emphasis on treating the physiology of the body and suggestions for therapeutic use of metals and minerals means the perspective of the treatise represents the gross, material value of life more than its counterparts--Caraka and Sushruta. While Caraka has chapters dealing with the Self, these works merely mention that the body is the home for the Self without any elaboration
