Description
Preface

It is with great pleasure; I am presenting this English version of Rasaratnasamuchchaya, a unique 13th century classic, which is a treasure house of minerals and metals, and their therapeutical usage.

To my knowledge, this is the first and the only translation available in English, of this text. Hence I am sure; this would certainly fulfil the demand of such a translation. Though, there are few Hindi versions available, they are being referred with considerable difficulty, especially in southern parts of India. The present translation helps in removing such a difficulty.

Rasaratna Samuchchaya, as said above is a unique text dealing with minerals and metals. Hence this would be of greater interest for the Indologists, historians, metallurgists and geologists, all over India and abroad.

I would like to thank my students and colleagues, who have helped me in this venture throughout the course of its inception to completion. I also thank the proprietors of Chaukhamba Sanskrit Pratishthan for presentation and timely publication.

I am sure, this English version of Rasaratnasamuchchaya, which is in your hands, would shed a new light on the study of minerals and metals in Ayurveda.

Thank You very much for this wonderful opportunity for helping people to acquire the spiritual treasures of Hinduism at such an affordable price.
Ramakrishna, Australia
I really LOVE you! Wonderful selections, prices and service. Thank you!
Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
