Abstract

The use of Gandhaka is widely brought out in the field of Rasashastra. There are many procedures mentioned for its Shodana which is practised abundantly in Ayurveda. Rasa Tarangini mentions one such unique method of purification which hasn’t been adopted till date. This method can be used in the preparation of Swarna Vanga, Makaradwaja etc. The method of Shodana involves the use of Damaru Yantra for its process and by following this procedure it prevents the presence of Pashanadi Doshas, avoids adherence of Milk/ Ghee as mentioned in other procedures of Shodana. This article mainly deals with the review of Shodana of Gandhaka as per Rasa Tarangini.
