Jīvaka-Pustaka is one of the medical texts that belongs to Ayurveda Medicine. In addition to the Sanskrit version, there is also a Khotanese translation of this text. The Sanskrit version and its Khotanese translation have written in a variety of Brāhmi script. The Sanskrit version was very messy and practically illegible until some scholars in view of other Ayurvedic texts, such as the Siddhasāra and Khotanese translation of Jīvaka-Pustaka started to reconstruction and emendation it. The manuscript of Jīvaka-Pustaka has 71 pages and contains both the Sanskrit version and its Khotanese translation. This text is composed of 91 formulae. Except for one of the formula in which, after each Sanskrit phrase, the Khotanese translation of it has been written, in other formulae, first, the Sanskrit text is written and then followed by the corresponding Khotanese translation. The first person who amended this text was a scholar named Hoernle who corrected the two formulae. Afterwards, Emmerick regarding Khotanese translation also revised two formulae. Finally, a Chinese scholar, by name Chen, amended the whole of the text and published it in 2005. In this essay, it would be tried to correct some mistakes of Chen and propose new suggestions for some illegible words.
