Piṣṭi (Flour or Powder): This is prepared by triturating the medicinal raw material with specified liquids and exposing to sun or moon. Fire is not used in this process, therefore they are known as anagnitapta. After the purification of the drug it is triturated with rose water or any other liquid for a day and dried in the sun for another day. This process continues for a week or so. On the last day piṣṭi is obtained. Example: Pravāla-piṣṭi, medicament made from coral used in fevers, gastritis and hemorrhage.
