Overview for Rasamritam of Vaidya Jadavji Trikamji Acarya
'Rasamritam' is a most important and popular text of Rasasastra written by Late vaidya Sri Yadavaji Trikamaji-Acarya of Bombay in 20th century A.D.
Sri Yadavaji has written it in the light of modern scientific knowledge and had made it most useful as a text and reference book of Rasasastra for the students, the vaidyas and the modern scholars by indulging necessary Ayurvedic as well as modern scientific knowledge in it and also the contemporary knowledge of other medicinal branches also like unani and modern medicine etc.
While classifying the drugs of mineral origin found described in Rasasastra texts he has followed his own pattern instead of following the ancient traditional pattern. Further while describing each drug he has also followed his own pattern which gives a very clear knowledge in brief about each drug to the reader. It is further important to mention here that many important and essential aspects of Rasasastra knowledge which are not included in the descriptions of original text are added in it through the nine appendices and the 10th appendix is added by me to make the text more useful to the students in understanding the subject material properly and making the text complete in all sense.
