5-6In Homa rites this man tram ending with the word Swaha should be recited. Having duly recited this mantram one hundred and eight times the worshipper should offer Arghya and bow unto the Deity again and again. Afterwards having worshipped the fire he should duly adore with his own mantram Acyuta the god of gods.
7-8Having first lighted fire, fed it and whirled it one, conversant with mantrams, should adore it in the Kunda with auspicious results. Having first meditated on all he should assign his mind to the Mandala.
9-10Then with the Tattva called Visudeva he should offer one hundred and eight oblations. Then with Sankarshana and other mantrams he should offer six adorations, three each time to his limbs as well as to the guardian deities of the quarters. Then is the end he should offer Purnahuti.
11Then he should immerse his own self in the great principle which is beyond the range of speech. Then taking his seat, making again Mudras he should again bow.
12This is the daily Homa rite; the occasional one requires double the rituals.
13-14(He should then say) “Go, go to that great region where dwells the deity who is devoid of passions. May all the deities repair to their respective quarters.” Sudarshana, Sri, Hari, Acyuta, Trivikrama (three footsteps), Caturbhuja (four-arms), Vasudeva, the sixth Pradyumma, Sankarshana, Purusa are the nine Vyuhas.
15Then comes Aniruddha and Ananta. With all these Cakras the gods are known and marked. And they are worshipped in a house along with the Rakshasa and Danavas.
16Om Cakraya Swahi, am Vicakraya Swaha, am Sucakriya Swihi, Om Mahacakraya Swiha, am, the remover of the Asuras, Hum, Phat, Om, Hum of thousand flames, Hum, Phat.
17This adoration of the discus at the door of the house is auspicious. It gives also protection.
