Abstract: The article deals with the Kaayaakalpa. It is one of the processes of Rasaayana therapy for complete rejuvenation. It is based on the process mentioned in Ashtaangahridayam (1st century A.D.) and also referred in Charaka and Sushruta Samhitas (1000 B.C.). The therapy was performed more than 50 years back in Varanasi. The person was kept for about a month in a specially prepared 3-fold Kuti (room) and was administered specially prepared Aamalaki fruits (Emblica officinalis Gaertn.), cow's milk, cow's ghee and honey. The results were very encouraging.
