Abstract: An experimental study was undertaken to investigate the effect of mantras on the chemical composition of sacrificial wood ash. The experiments were conducted with four identical rooms with three rooms for sacrifice with mantras and one for sacrifice without mantra. The last room served as control.
The results show that the sacrificial ash falls under the category of Bulky Organic Manure and is beneficial to the soil. There is an indication that the mantra influences the chemical composition of the ash, but this needs substantiation by more data.
