Overview for Rasaratna Samucchaya
Rasaratna Samuchchaya is one of the important texts of Rasashastra, which is acclaimed as the best compiled work. In fact, the first eleven chapters are important as far as the pharmacopoeia of mineral drugs are concerned.
The contents of these chapters are extremely important for the students as well as scholars, in view of the systematic and scientific explanation of the minerals and metals as well as their therapeutical utility.
Though the English version gives only textual translation, the usefulness is evident. This reprint of Rasaratna Samuchchaya would certainly fulfill the demand of the students and scholars alike.
