Though this method is supposed to be exhaustive and complicative, it has an important role in the field of treatment in this Nuclear era. Therefore Kupipakva Kalpana was selected for the present study. Tamra Sindoora is one of the unique Rasa Yoga, with Parada, Gandhaka & Tamra,  prepared by Kupipakva Rasayana method by giving kramagni in valuka yantra for 36hours. Validity of this branch of science totally depends on the successful completion of the practical aspects.
