Abstract

CONCEPTUAL STUDY OF KUPIPAKVA RASAYANA

Gadhe Sanjay N.* and Bodhakar Kishor N.

ABSTRACT

Rasa Shastra and Bhaishajya kalpana are the two main part of Ayurvedic pharmaceutics. Rasa Shastra deals with the metallic and herbo-mineral preparations with their types, occurrence, physical properties and organoleptic characteristics. Basically there are four types of Rasoushadhis mentioned in Rasa Shastra such as Kharaliya Rasayana, Parpati Rasayana, Pottali Rasayana and Kupipakwa Rasayana. Kupipakwa Rasayana is very difficult to prepare and require long duration for preparation. However, it bears a unique place in Rasa Shastra because of mercurial preparations are quicker in action and synergistic effect on the body at very low dose. The formulations prepared by shuddha Parada, shuddha Gandhaka with other rasadravya to specific heat in selected glass bottle following the unique preparation methods mentioned in classical text is called as Kupipakva Rasayana. This kalpana including so many preparations like Rasa Sindur, Makardhwaja, Rasakarpoor, Rasapushpa etc. The name kupi indicates that the preparation is made in kupi (glass bottle) on mild to intense heat by using an instrument known as Valuka yantra. Kupipakva Rasayana are largely produced and marketed by pharmaceutical companies. These formulations have very wider range of therapeutic utility. This study will definitely give an idea about the usefulness of Kupipakva Rasayana preparations.

Keywords: Kupipakva Rasayana, Valuka Yantra, Rasasindur, Makardhwaja.
