The Rasāyana by the legendarily-immortal Shukla contains exquisitely explicit guidance towards transforming the human body from mortal to immortal through an extremely difficult mixture of alchemy, yoga, and esoteric herbal medicine. If one can translate the text, and understand and decrypt it (INT 14+, WIS 16+), a recipe for longevity potions lies within. This specific potion, when coupled with yogic discipline, allows the imbiber to ignore the cumulative 1% error rate common with other potions.
