TAMRESVARI

For further details of this human sacrifice we have to turn to Tikha Kalpa, a manuscript work found in the Manipur State Library, an extract of which was published in B.B. Brown's 'An Outline Grammar of the Deori Chutiya Language':

"Human sacrifices are made, after the royal consent has been obtained, on the occasion of public calamities such as war or for the purpose of obtaining great wealth .... A Brahman or a woman should never be sacrificed. Neither should one sacrifice one's own body, as then he will be guilty of the sin of suicide.
