Short Introduction:

The Rasa-jala-nidhi (“the ocean of Iatrochemistry, or, chemical medicine) is a compendium of Sanskrit verses dealing with ancient Indian alchemy and chemistry and its medicinal uses, scientifically known as Rasa-shastra or Rasa-vidya.

The second volume deals with the purification, incineration and medicinal uses of various minerals (uparasa), as well as preventing faults due to misuse. It is continued in the third volume which deals with the various metals.

This is the English translation of these Sanskrit verses dealing with the purification of elements and metals such as gold, silver and mercury, for the benefit of the human body and the improvement of global welfare.
