Revue de presse

Rasa Shastra: The Hidden Art of Medical Alchemy is a great introductory book on the concepts behind this time-honoured traditional medicine from Asia. Easy-to-read, profusely illustrated and presented from the standpoint of personal experience, I think any reader would gain a great deal of knowledge from this book. --Dr Tasnim Munshi, Senior Lecturer in Chemistry, University of Bradford, UK

An extraordinary book. Andrew Mason has succeeded in documenting the knowledge from this secret oral tradition that would otherwise have been lost forever. --Philip Weeks, master herbalist, acupuncturist and author of Make Yourself Better and Painful Bladder Syndrome

An in-depth and informative read that tackles the complexities of Rasa Shastra (Indian Alchemy). Andrew presents the precepts of this ancient science in a very readable and concise way, helping demystify the processes conceived by the masters of this ancient science. From introductory to advanced concepts, this book aims to guide the reader through the historical aspects of the work to its modern day equivalents. Rasa Shastra: The Hidden Art of Medical Alchemy remains an illustrative, interesting and insightful journey, for those seeking knowledge into this lesser understood science of Ayurveda. Highly recommended as an essential text for students of Ayurveda, and an excellent book for those interested in the alchemy of Ayurveda, particularly the western reader. --Dr Mauroof M. Athique, MD(Ayur), PhD., Director, College of Ayurveda (UK), Milton Keynes

Rasa Shastra: The Hidden Art of Medical Alchemy, Andrew Mason
Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews
I'm fascinated by medicines and traditional remedies of past times and other cultures. Though mice wrapped in flannel for sore throats etc is a little too off the wall for me!! its still intesting reading how people came to the ideas for these remedies, and though we rely very much on chemical cures, so many are still based around old herbal ones. Think about how silver is now used in dressings, honey also has bveen found to have anti bacterial properties and used for wounds. That one was a favourite of my grans, though she also swore by cobwebs added to it too and iIm really not fixed on that one! My old horse, who had arthritis used to nibble at my willow tree on some days. Willow bark was what Aspirin, a pain killer and good for arthritis, was originally derived from. Animals, given the choice, will often seek out from nature what they need for health. All dog/cat owners will have seen their pets eat grass sometimes – it makes them sick, and maybe they do it when they've stomach ache/fur balls or something? Maybe in past times we had that same instinct, but our reliance in Science and all things artificial has overtaken it. Not that I'm anti modern medicine – thankfully chemo kept me alive, and pain meds keep me moving, but there's much to be learned from the past that without books such as this could get lost.

Alchemy to me is the straw into gold, search for immortal life type of thing, and yet in this book we see its far more, that there are real scientific bases to the use of crystals, metals and the like in medicines. I've got books on such things as crystals for healing, and a few years back was chatting to Son no 1 about this. He's a complete sceptic when it comes to things like that – if science can't explain it it doesn't happen for him, so when I'd said the theory about water taking on the properties of different crytals for healing was a step too far, even for some one open minded as I consider myself, I was astonished when he disagreed. He's a huge IT/Web/Science fan, proven facts are Gold Standard for him, and he told me there were uses for water in computers, as water has been proved to hold a memory – so once again my perceptions had been broadened.
So this book – a tome really, not a book!! – is so packed with information, research, stories, that it's not one for reading through, but one for dipping, for reading sections that interest at the current time, and for reference purposes. If the pursuit of knowledge, history, other cultures and beliefs interest you you'll be glad to read this book. I can't begin to imagine how Andrew managed to take so much information and put it all together in such a readble way. I keep thinking of how hard it must have been to research, how thorough he must have been in his reading, finding people to talk to, in putting it all together. It's one of those books that though I have the Kindle version I think – like most reference books – it would be better to have in traditional print form.
Stars: Five, a fablous book full of interest to those with an enquiring mind.

HASH(0x9a5d6234) étoiles sur 5 preparation and use of metal-based medicines used to great effect over countless centuries throughout the Indian subcontinent 4 janvier 2016

A book I have been waiting to see written ...

Mr. Masons captivating work is the first comprehensive analysis (to my knowledge) in Engllsh of ayurvedic medical alchemy, describing the character, preparation and use of metal-based medicines used to great effect over countless centuries throughout the Indian subcontinent. This is the stuff of lore and legend, magic and mystery whose foundational principles the author manages to convey in an elegant manner that can be tohoughyl enjoyed and profited from whether or not the reader has a technical background in the subject area.

Offering a detailed, personal and experiential exploration of ayurvedic alchemical practices that are intended to enhance the therapeutic potential of materials, metals and gemstones as well as offering a concise overview of traditional and modern equipment and methods of preparation used in the manufacture of these medicines, I found this volume simply impossible to put down once having started reading. Beautifully written in the author's very engaging conversational style, and while rather technical in portions by no means laborious reading.

The author's unique and fascinating account of the hidden alchemical arts as he practiced and experienced them on a daily bass whilst in Sri Lanka and elsewhere also helps illuminate some of the historical and philosophic background behind the on-going quest amongst alchemists for immortality (or at least, the radical extension of longevity free from dsease).

To put it simply, this is exactly the book on ayurvedic medicinal alchemy that I have been waiting to read, and I recommend it unhesitatingly to every ayurvedic teacher, practitioner and student, and to others interested in the history of science ad medicine in India.

I've been studying and practicing Ayurveda for about 10 years now and was always looking for a good book on the Ayurvedic science of Rasa Shastra, there's many around which are very technical and not very well written , i was excited when i saw this book as the author had produced four dvd rom's on the subject.
When the book arrived it was like i had received a treasure from the gods, this is a beautiful book, with so much amazing information on the preparations of Rasa Shastra and Andrew Masons.personal journey into his craft , his visits to SriLanka and his adventures in preparing all his preparations.
There is a wonderful section on Ayurveda which is explained so nicely and easy to understand, one of the many gems of this book , is the section on Jyotish ( Indian, Hindu or Vedic Astrology) with so much information on the subject, planets, astrological signs , gemstones , mantras and all written in such a devotional way, its joy to read all the information, the drawings inside the book are beautiful.
This book would be one of the best books i've come across, worth every cent, its so good i bought it on kindle as well, i can't praise this book enough, its just a GEM.....
