Standard operating procedures (SOPs) should to be designed, implemented and set for all Ayurvedic drugs one by one for globalization Ayurveda. In this study, an attempt has been made to introduce SOPs for preparation of Naga Bhasma. Naga Bhasma was prepared three times by adopting two different methods. In the first method Parada and Gandhaka were taken as media, while the second method consists of Ashwattha (Ficus religiosa) and Manahshila (Realgar) as media. The percentage increase in the Naga Bhasma prepared by first method was 5.03%, while in case of Naga Bhasma prepared by second method was 6.09%. Raw drugs, in process materials and the final products were analyzed physico-chemically and comparison was drawn to lay down pharmacopoeial standards. The average percentage purity of Naga decreased from 97.38% to 81.44% after Shodhana. The percentage of (Pb) ead in Naga Bhasma was 28.29% and 30.80% respectively in first and second methods. Both the Bhasmas were in PbS form chemically with other elements in traces.
