Vijayaparpaṭī (विजयपर्पटी) refers to a type of Parpati medicine, according to the fourth volume of the Rasajalanidhi (chapter 3, grahaṇī: chronic diarrhoea).—Accordingly, “eight tolas of sulphur, specially purified with the juice of bhringaraja, four tolas of mercury, two tolas of. silver, one tola of gold, half a tola of vaikranta (garnet, reduced to ashes), and half a tola of pearls are to be rubbed together to form a black powder which is next to be transformed into a “parpati”, in the same way as ‘rasa-parpati’. This medicine cures grahani of long standing, colic due to mucus, diarrhoea, phthisis, anemia, jaundice, amlapitta, vata-rakta, fevers of ail sorts, and senility”.
