Medicines prepared from Parada are called as Rasaushadies. These are more potent and effective in small doses to cure diseases. Kupipakva is one of a method of preparation of Rashaoushais. Rasabhraka is Nirgandha, Sagni Parad- Kupikava Rasayana. According to Rasachintamani it is prepared with Shuddha Parada and Abhraka. Abhraka is an important mineral in Rasa Shastra. Krushna Vajrabhrak is generally used for the preparation of medicines. Kupipakva Rasaushadhis are prepared in specially designed glass bottle by gradual heating immersion in Valuka Yantra/sand bath. Rasapishti of Parad and Abhraka is made and Bhavana of Tulasi Swarasa is given to this Rasapishti. Here we have tried to prepare Rasabhrak by traditional method of Kupipakva Rasayana preparation by using this Rasapishti. Rasabhrak is obtained as a Talasth Rasayan of kachkupi/at the bottom of glass bottle and the colour of the finished product Rasabraka is Istika Varna. This Rasabhrak can be used for medicinal purpose.
