TAMRESVARI

A brother, a father, a son, a wife's brother, a sister's son, a maternal uncle, none of these should be sacrificed; nor anyone who is acquainted with the Vedas, or has renounced the world, or is a student, or
belongs to the royal family. An enemy, a sick person, a eunuch, one who is infirm or has defects or scars should not beoffered.

The victim should be bathed, and properly decorated, and then brought before the goddess. The person offering the sacrifice should turn his face towards the north; and the victim should face the east. Water should be sprinkled on the victim, and the following mantra uttered:

"0 Goddess, living on the golden mountain, I offer this sacrifice to thee! He is good and stout and without blemish, I bind him to a post! I offer this sacrifice to remove my misfortune. O Goddess, accept him l Although I kill him, I give him
salvation. "
