2-4Having used these weapons inspired with mantrams in a battle a king conquers his enemies. The mantram for purifying the mantrams should be first written on a lotus petal. Om is the Brahma Bijam. Hrim is the Vishnu Bijam. These three bijams should be assigned to the head of Siva thrice in order. Om. Hrim, Hrim.
5Having taken up the dart in his hand he should whirl it in the sky. By seeing it all the evil stars and serpents are destroyed.

8Eight sticks of catechu wood, inspired with mantrams, should be placed on the ground. That will prevent the falling of thunderbolt.
