ABSTRACT

Shodhana (purification) of a drug is important before it is used for any therapeutic use. Shodhana is necessary in removing toxicity and unwanted materials to increase the efficacy. Ayurveda also focus on the Shodhana of various metals, non-metals, plants, minerals etc. The first chapter of Kalpasthana of Charaka Samhita “Madankalpa Adhyaya” deals with the basic and important concepts about the drugs used for Vamana (therapeutic emesis) and Virechana (therapeutic purgation). Among the drugs used for Vamana Karma, Madanphala (Randia dumetorum) is the best and most common drug because it does not produces any adverse effect. Shodhana of Madanphalapippali is necessary before it is used for the purpose of Vamana Karma. There is a rare description/ articles on Madanphala Shodhana.

Present article describes the stepwise procedure adopted for the purification of Madanphalapippali.
