Vajraparpaṭī (वज्रपर्पटी) refers to a type of Parpati medicine, according to the fourth volume of the Rasajalanidhi (chapter 3, grahaṇī: chronic diarrhoea).—Accordingly, “equal quantities of diamond, gold, mercury, silver, pearls, copper, and mica; and sulphur, equal in quantity to all the above-mentioned combined, are to be rubbed together to form a kajjali or black powder, which is to be transformed into a parpati in the same way as ‘rasa-parpati’. This medicine cures all the diseases and retards senility and death”.
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.
