Ayurvediya Rasasastra is not just a medical science but it is specific science which advocates Naisthiki cikitsa. In other words it cures the diseases permanantly, Rasagistra gives immediate MoIcia (Relief from disease). Originator of this science is 'Adinath' Lord Sankara himself. This Rasagastra was originally composed in axioms and it advocated Dehavada. Afterwards sages like Nagarjuna etc. developed & ornamented it with Lohavada and used in the treatment of diseases. After many centuries with effect of time, Dhatuvada & Dehavada both were extinguished.

Rasaratnasamuccaya consists of thirty chapters. In the first eleven chapters various medicinal substances with their classifications have been described from all angles along with information about various accessories required. In the first chapter Mercury along with its properties & origin, types etc. have heen described. 6th, 7th & 8th chapter are important as they describe teacher & students of Rasasistra, construction of manufacturing unit & terminologies of Rasakbtra. 9th & 10th chapters are meant for various equipments & fireplaces & their construction Sc uses. 11th chapter describes various units of measurements & various processes to which Mercury is subjected. The author himself has accepted thtit all this information is compiled from Rasantava etc. texts.
