Rasashastra (chemistry and alchemy)
Rasayoga (Mineral medicaments): Medicaments containing mineral drugs as primary ingredients are rasayogas. Drugs such as abhraka (mica), mākṣika, svarṇa (gold), rajata (silver), tāmra (copper) etc. are used in bhasma form in these preparations. Gandhaka (sulphur), manasila (realgar or red arsenic) etc. are used after purification. If rasa (mercury) and gandhaka (sulphur) are ingredients, these two are made into kajjali (amalgamation) and then other ingredients are added. Bhāvana (lavigation or gravity separation method) with prescribed svarasas (juices), kvātha (decoction) are essential procedures in making the rasayōga. Example: Vasantakusumākara-rasa.Source: Academia.edu: Ayurveda and Pharmaceutics (rasashastra)

Sanskrit, also spelled संस्कृतम् (saṃskṛtam), is an ancient language of India commonly seen as the grandmother of the Indo-European language family. Closely allied with Prakrit and Pali, Sanskrit is more exhaustive in both grammar and terms and has the most extensive collection of literature in the world, greatly surpassing its sister-languages Greek and Latin.
