Krāmaṇa (क्रामण):—Fifteenth of the eighteen Saṃskāra (special purification process). They are used to purify rasa (mercury) as per Rasaśāstra literature (Medicinal Alchemy), and are mentioned in texts such as the Rasaprakāśasudhākara. In Āyurveda, Saṃskāra refers to the “detoxification” process of metals and herbs. The Krāmaṇa-saṃskāra is mainly used for transmutational alchemical purposes. In other words: the last ten saṃskāras are sequentially used for the ends of transmutational and elixir alchemy. Krāmaṇa refers to the process of ‘taking hold’ or ‘progression’ and involves smearing mercury with a mineral and herbal paste and heating it in a fire pit such that it becomes capable, as a transmuting agent, of penetrating both metals and human body tissues.Source: Google Books: The Alchemical Body
