  1. Dr P Srinivas, M.D. (Ay) says:


    I am not above to find the reference in sahasrayogam. What is yogagrantham, please give me exact reference of karpooradi taiam

    • I too did not find its reference in Sahasrayogam. I just mentioned the reference, based on claim made on labels of several companies. EG: http://www.planetayurveda.com/karpooradi-thailam-herbal-oil.htm

    • Dr.SAranya says:

      Sir u wil get it in chakradata yonivyapath adyaya i thnk.
      u wont gt it in sahasrayogam or yogaratnakara

      • Dear Dr Saranya, Thanks for the help. The AVP product mentions its reference as Sahasrayoga. The problem with Sahasrayoga is – there are many Malayalam version. Once such version might have this reference.
        AVN Mentions a text book called Yogagrantham as reference.
        Chakradatta Yonivyapat contains Karpooradi tailam with Karpoora, Bhallataka, Shankha Churna, Yavakshara, Yavani, Manashila, and after taila is prepared, Manashila is added to it, used for roma shatana purpose. So, definitely, not for the purpose mentioned above. Hence, it is different from the above, and not in manufacturing.
