The success of any treatment relies heavily on the accuracy of the dosage given. In most of the Siddha classical literatures, dosage are being mentioned in the names of grains, pulses etc. There is an urgent need to standardize all these measurements into universally acceptable metric units. In that way, the Authors of this paper have initiated to standardize the measurements which are found in the Siddha text book ‘Gunapadam Thathu Jeeva Vaguppu’ by Dr. R. Thiagarajan..
