  1. The sad thing is in the name of preparing the holy ash ‘vibhuti’, adulteration started taking place even there too . There is a method of preparing the ash to be offered to God and also for our day to day use. The cow dung is to be dried up and put into fire reciting some holy mantras and then ‘vastra-kaayam’ is to be done . Vastra kaayam means it is to be filtered through a cotton cloth. The best form of qualitative vibhuti prasadam is the ‘homa-basma’, that is, after performing some yagnya (havan) the remaining ashes are to be collected and applied in our body.

  2. Good one
