  1. Dear Sir,

    I have a Sanskrit-Hindi translated Ashtanga Hrudaya. In that, under the
    Narasimha Rasayan section, it is written that, it has to be taken in 1 PAL
    quantity.

    Sir, please let me know how much is 1 PAL in grams.

    Also, i would like to know that these units of measurement like PAL,
    TOLA etc are they all same or are they different in Ashtanga Hrudaya, Bhaishyajratnavali, Rasatarangini and other texts.

    • 1 Tola is 12 grams.
      1 Pala is 48 grams.
      But taking Narasimha Rasayana in a dose of 48 grams is not possible.
      Consider its dose as 1 teaspoon once or twice a day.
