How to know if Gold Bhasma obtained is pure or still need purification?

Once the gold bhasma is prepared using this method, there are few tests which are done to check if the Gold bhasma is made as per accurate standards or not.

As per Ras Shastra

The ancient alchemy of India - there are certain tests through which a bhasma must pass for completion of bhasmikaran process which is as follows.

1. Rekhapuran

It is a test for the fineness of the metal in the bhasma. The test in done on the finger lines. A well-prepared bhasma should be so fine that it should settle in between the finger lines and should be just barely visible. This shows that the particles of metals are so fine that they are embedded in between finger lines like talcum powder.

2. Nischandrikaran

This is a test to check the loss of the metallic property of shine. An ideally prepared bhasma should totally lose its shine.

3. Apunarbhava

The bhasma should be prepared in such a way that it is irreversible in the sense that one cannot derive the metal back from it again.

4. Varitar

The fourth and the most important test is that a bhasma should float on water. Imagine heavy metal like mercury floating on water but a truly made Bhasma will float on water.

As you refer Apunarbhava property of bhasma which is key of power behind bhasmas, it says that in the process of bhasmikaran original element lost its metallic property and turns to some other form other than metal and you cannot recover the original element back in its metallic form.

Now a day's science have found the form of element which is present in bhasmas which gives original therapeutic effect and it's called ORME (Orbitally Rearranged Monoatomic Elements).


15-30 mg per day. It can also be given in dosage of 15.5 - 62.5 mg once or twice a day before or after food.
