Making rubies


The fish black is ready! This is the base product needed for producing a whole series of gems: rubies, sapphires, emeralds, garnet, topaz, and blue sapphires.

Time to start making those rubies!



Here’s the recipe:

एतत्कर्षद्वयं तस्याः काचकूप्यां विनिक्षिपेत् ॥५॥

Entangled Histories of Yoga, Ayurveda and Alchemy in South Asia


The project examines the histories of yoga, ayurveda and rasaśāstra (Indian alchemy and iatrochemistry) from the tenth century to the present, focussing on the disciplines' health, rejuvenation and longevity practices. The goals of the project are to reveal the entanglements of these historical traditions, and to trace the trajectories of their evolution as components of today's global healthcare and personal development industries.
