Maha Mrityunjay Mantra

Tryambakam Yajaamahe' Sugandhim Pushtivardhanam |
Urvarukamiva Bandhanat-mrutyormuksheeya Ma-amrutat ||

We worship the three-eyed One, Lord Siva, Who is fragrant and Who nourishes all beings; May He liberate me from the death, for the sake of Immortality, just as the ripe cucumber gets severed from the bondage of the vines.

Soil Selection

The Brahmin Soil

There are four classes of soil according to Orissan Silpa Sastra named after four major category of Hindu caste system. The Brahmin Soil is white in colour that smells like clarified butter and is astringent to the taste. The Kshatriya soil is blood red in colour and is bitter to the taste. The Vaisya soil is yellow in colour with smells like alkaline earth and is sour to the taste. The Sudra category soil is black in colour which gives the smell of dead snails and has a wine-like taste.

If there is difficulty in deciding

If there is difficulty in deciding the category of soil by colour and taste, just prepare a small piece of ground with the plough (utter Savitri Mantra during the whole process) and sow sesamum seeds therein. If sprouts appear after the third night, it is Brahmin soil. If sprouts appear after 4, 5 or 6 nights, the soil can be determined as Kshatriya, Vaisya and Sudra respectively.
