In the growing era of medicine, Nanotechnology holds promises due to its novel drug formulation routes, site-specific action, better solubility, improved efficacy and reduced side effects. Bhasma, literally meaning ash, is unique ayurvedic herbo-mineral-metallic compounds in the size of nanodimensions. Systematic nanomaterialistic investigations on bhasmas are recommended for gaining the complete and reliable composition-processing –structure- effectiveness picture of these drugs. This study aims to accumulate into on the ripen age old description notice and basic principles of ayurveda this would on ice the changed scholars, researchers and practitioners to worn out the challenge towards global acceptance and harmonization of such traditional nanomedicines called bhasmas.
