• Speciality of this Grantha:
 While classifying the Rasa Dravyas, Yadavji followed
his own pattern instead of following the ancient
traditional pattern.
 While describing each drug also, he followed his own
pattern which gives a clear knowledge in brief about each
drug to the reader.
 Sri Yadavji tried to avoid the descriptions of the drugs
and procedures which are controversial or confusing.
 Only such drugs, procedures and the preparations which
are not confusing, non controversial and which have been
experienced by him and other Vaidyas in their practise
and which proved to be most useful and acceptable by
majority of Ayurvedic Physicians.
 In many places, where the subject material is not clear,
he tried to explain it either on the basis of descriptions of
the other contemporary texts or with his own experience
added in the text as Vaktavya.
Contributions:
 Unique classification based on chemical nature. E:g-
calcium compounds dealt under Sudha Vijnaniyam.
 Inclusion of new useful drugs like Badarasma, Surma
etc.
 Sikata varga as a separate chapter told for the first time.
 33 Adoptable Rasayogas are explained.
 All 4 Rasa Rasayanas are described.
 Clear differentiation of drugs based on chemical nature.
E;g – Sindhura – Parada while Nagasindhoora under
Naga.
 References for Yogas or Slokas taken from previous
texts are mentioned.
Pitfalls:
 Paribhasha, Yantra, Moosha, Puta, Koshti are not
explained in the main chapters.
 Many more Rasa Yogas could have been incorporated.
 Souveeranjana and Neelanjana considered as one and the
same, but they are two different drugs.
Conclusion:
 Yadavji had written Rasamritam, in the light of modern
scientific knowledge and had made it most useful as a
text and reference book for Rasasastra students, Vaidyas
and the modern scholars by including necessary
Ayurvedic as well as modern scientific knowledge.
 Also the contemporary knowledge of other medicinal
branches like Unani and modern medicine etc.
 English translation by Dr Damodhar Joshi made the text
more useful to the students in understanding the subject,
material property and making the text complete in all
sense.

  • 26. Conclusion:  Yadavji had written Rasamritam, in the light of modern scientific knowledge and had made it most useful as a text and reference book for Rasasastra students, Vaidyas and the modern scholars by including necessary Ayurvedic as well as modern scientific knowledge.  Also the contemporary knowledge of other medicinal branches like Unani and modern medicine etc.
  • 27.  English translation by Dr Damodhar Joshi made the text more useful to the students in understanding the subject, material property and making the text complete in all sense.
