The sacred ash Made of Burnt dried Ark wood As per vedic rituals & 11,000 chants of Surya mantra & Yagna to pacify malefics of planet Sun and bestow blessings. In Sanskrit, bhoothi means Aishwaryam, meaning wealth, treasure, precious. Vi-bhoothi means very or more valuable.
The word bhasma means â€œthat by which our sins are Destroyed and the Lord is remembered". "Bha" implies Bhartsana (â€œto destroyâ€) and â€œsmaâ€ implies smaranam (â€œto rememberâ€). The application of Bhasma therefore signifies destruction of the evil and remembrance of the divine. Bhasma is called Vibhuti (â€œgloryâ€) as it gives glory to one who applies it and raksha (which means a source of protection) as it protects the wearer from ill health and evil, by purifying him or her. The ash we apply indicates that we should burn false identification with body and become free of the limitations of birth and death. It also reminds us that the body is perishable and shall one day be reduced to ashes. As death can come at any moment, this awareness must increase our drive to make the best use of time. This is not to be misconstrued as a morose reminder of death, but as a powerful pointer towards the fact that time and tide wait for none. Surya Mantra should be chanted whilst Applying Ash.
