Madātyaya (मदात्यय) refers to one of the four “evil effects of drinking wine in excess” (i.e., madyapana) according to the fifth volume of the Rasajalanidhi (chapter 20). Accordingly, “Madatyaya, due to an excess of vayu, is indicated by hiccough, asthma, shaking of the head, pain in the sides, insomnia, and ravings. Madatyaya, due to an excess of pitta, is indicated by thirst, sensation of heat, fever, perspiration, distraction of mind, diarrhoea, and yellowishness of skin. Madatyaya due to an excess of kapha is indicated by vomiting, aversion to food, nausea, drowsiness, sensation of the skin being wet and cold, feeling of heaviness of the body, and coldness. Madatyaya, due to an excess of the three doshas, is indicated by a combination of some or all of the symptoms stated above”.
Rasashastra (रसशास्त्र, rasaśāstra) is an important branch of Ayurveda, specialising in chemical interactions with herbs, metals and minerals. Some texts combine yogic and tantric practices with various alchemical operations. The ultimate goal of Rasashastra is not only to preserve and prolong life, but also to bestow wealth upon humankind.
