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.
Ayurveda (science of life)
1) Patravallī (पत्रवल्ली) is another name for Rudrajaṭā, a medicinal plant identified with Aristolochia indica (Indian birthwort or duck flower) from the Aristolochiaceae or “birthwort family” of flowering plants, according to verse 3.79-81 of the 13th-century Raj Nighantu or Rājanighaṇṭu. The third chapter (guḍūcyādi-varga) of this book contains climbers and creepers (vīrudh). Together with the names Patravallī and Rudrajaṭā, there are a total of sixteen Sanskrit synonyms identified for this plant.
2) Patravallī (पत्रवल्ली) is also mentioned as a synonym for Palāśī, an unidentified medicinal plant, according to verse 3.145-147. Vaidyaka Śabda Sindhu says Palāśī is a tree, with latex and a famous creeper by its name in Nāgar-deśa and in Kashmir it is known as Śaṭī.; it appears that Vaidyaka Śabda Sindhu is not clear whether Palāśī is a tree or a creepre. Bhāvaprakāśa has mentioned one Gandha-Palāśī (Hedychium spicatum or spiked ginger lily). Raghuvīr Prasāda Trivedī rejects claim by maintaining that the properties of Palāśī of Raj Nighantu and Gandha-Palāśī of Bhāvaprakāśa differ.Source: WorldCat: Rāj nighaṇṭu

Traditional practice of Āyurveda in ancient India dates back to at least the first millenium BC. Literature is commonly written in Sanskrit using various poetic metres.
