Urograha (उरोग्रह) refers to “enlargement of the region between the spleen and the liver” according to the fifth volume of the Rasajalanidhi (chapter 7). Accordingly, “the flesh and the intestine in the region situated between the spleen and the liver are enlarged [i.e., urograha] owing to the eating of articles of food-stuff increasing an excess of phlegm and dirt, heavy food, and dry or stale meat. This disease is due to abnormal excess of phlegm and wind. It has sometimes the appearance of a bifurcated mass and some times that of a tortoise. Symptoms of this disease:—weakness, dullness of the digesting heat, emaciation, lust for meat, and blackness or yellowishness of the skin. At advanced stages of this disease, there are fever, aversion to food, thirst, and swelling”.
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.
