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.

Fotis, Greece
I received the statue today, and it is beautiful! Worth the wait! Thank you so much, blessings, Kimberly.
Kimberly, USA
I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
Steven, USA
