Śrī Pratyaṅgirā Yantra Āvaraṇa Pūja Homam

           

Prologue :-

All tantra sādhanas involve the worship of the deity, through the form of a yantra (maṇḍala). The yantras are sacred geometric diagrams, that are deemed to represent the japa sādhana deity, at the very centre, covered by other deities. The deities of the coverings (āvaraṇa-s), are usually at the corners or centres, of intersecting geometric figures. Worshipping the āvaraṇa deities helps unlock the power of the mantra as well as that of the main deity. It is therefore considered as an essential part of mantra sādhana and is recommended to be worshipped on a daily basis, if time permits. An alternate to āvaraṇa pūja, is the Khaḍgamālā stotram.

The pīṭha (pedestal) and āvaraṇa pūja-s are performed during the mantra japa, after the dhyāna (meditation) verse. The pūjas are for worshipping the yantra of śrī pratyaṅgirā devi, to bestow Her grace on the mantra japa and sādhana. Pīṭha represents the table or stool, upon which the yantra is placed. Usually, the yantra is placed on a red or yellow cloth.

It is very important to note, that the directions mentioned on yantras related to tantra sādhana, are not necessarily the same as their geographical equivalents. In tantra, the directions for deities, can be different from the geographical notation and it also varies by the gender of the deity. In general, For male deities, the East direction is the geophraphical South; and for female deities, it’s the geographical North. For śrī vidyā related deities, the East is usually on the geographical north. One may choose to sit facing the geographical East direction, so that the East end of the yantra is facing away from the devotee. This puja has been documented with this assumption.

Please follow the enumerated corners in the yantra, for each of the āvaraṇa deities. The pīṭha devatās are not represented on the yantra, since the yantra itself is placed on the pīṭha. We need to establish the proper vessels called kalaśa-s, invoke Lord Varua and establish the Viśea arghya vessel, prior to the start of the āvaraṇa pūja. Following which, the pīṭha devatās are worshipped and established on the pedestal first. One must imagine the pīṭha to be divided into various segments to accommodate the enlisted deities. Following the worship of the pīṭha devatās, one must worship the three maṇḍala-s of Agni/Fire, Sūrya/Sun and Candra/Moon. These maṇḍala-s should be imagined to be at the top of the pīṭha and through their worship, the place where the yantra will be placed, is further sanctified and energized. Following the maṇḍala-s, the pīṭha śakti-s are invoked to grant various types of victories to the devotee, worshipping the yantra. Finally, the yantra is placed on the pedestal (pīṭha) and the life-infusing prāṇapratiṣṭhā mantras are invoked to energize the yantra. After which, the dhyāna shloka is recited and the āvaraṇa pūja begins. It is to be noted that the pedestal worship and the life-infusing ritual are a one-time activity and need not be performed on a regular basis.

Before starting the pūja, ensure that you have a brass plate, some water in a jug or a container, as well as a disposable container for the water. Vessels for Kāraṇa kalaśa, sāmānya arghya and viśeṣa arghya. For viśeṣa kalaśa, a uttaraṇi (this is like a small spoon, but with more depth to hold water and is always placed inside pañcapātra, which is like a round mug). For sāmānya arghya, a conch with a base (ideally in the form of a tortoise) is required. For viśeṣa arghya another pañcapātra, preferably in silver or copper is required. A tweezer is also required and this tweezer should be either made of silver or copper. This is meant to perform tarpaṇa. Instead of a tweezer, a thin silver rod is used with spikes on one side and a very small uttaraṇi like structure which can hold one or two drops of viśeṣa arghya can also be used. Keep some flower petals, kuṅkum (red powder), clarified butter or ghee, a clean cloth and some unbroken rice (akṣata-s) ready as well. A spoon (uddharaṇi), should be handy for the tarpaṇa. This should be done in the similar manner as the śrī cakra āvaraṇa pūja. The flower petals can be placed from the left hand and the tarpaṇa from the right hand. A cut piece of ginger is required for the tarpaṇa process. Some fragrance, oil, incense, lamps should also be kept available. Food offerrings such as meat, wine, fish etc. (pañcamakara) or their substitutes should be kept ready as well. Internal worship can also be done by those, who’re unable to perform in a ritualistic manner. Atleast one lamp can be lit and incense shown to the deity as part of the puja ritual.

Śrī Pratyaṅgirā Devi Homam is a fire ritual that is often employed when facing insurmountable challenges, black magic and severe enmity from opponents. This ritual employs using red chillies to help get rid of enemies and all negativities.

Both homam and āvaraṇa pūja can be done separately. Mantra japa combined with āvaraṇa pūja fetches quick results. Homam combined with āvaraṇa pūja is also the best way of performing the ritual to get maximum benefits. One must consider it, if initiated into Her mantras.

For the homam, the following mūla mantra has been given as an example. One should use the mantra they are initiated into, for both the āvaraṇa pūja and homam.

om̐ hrīm̐ kṣam̐ bhakṣa jvālā jihve karāladaṃṣtre pratyaṅgire kṣam̐ hrīm̐ hum̐ phaṭ

ॐ ह्रीँ क्षँ भक्ष ज्वाला जिह्वे करालदंष्त्रे प्रत्यङ्गिरे क्षँ ह्रीँ हुं फट् ।

We start with the āvaraṇa pūja and then proceed to homam.

At the very beginning, worshipping of Lord Gaṇeśa is mandated, to help us gain success in all our undertakings, that includes this ritual as well.

ऊर्ध्वं कपालं डमरुं त्रिशूलं संबिभ्रती बद्ध कलावतंसं ।

पिङ्गोर्ध्व कौशी सीतभीमदंष्ट्रा भूया द्विभूत्यै ममभद्रकाली ॥

Meditate on the Divine Mother Bhadrakāli Pratyaṅgirā devi, holding a cup, skull, a drum and a trident with loosened hair and dark complexion. She a wide gaping mouth and extremely terrific in form.

 

4. Kalaśa sthāpana (कलश स्थापन) –

Kalaśa is a water vessel of great importance in pūja and meant to represent the entire universe within it. In the context of śrī pratyaṅgirā devi, we establish the various pātra-s (vessels) by following the below procedures –

a. Samānārghya

Meditate on śrī pratyaṅgirā devi, perform Her upacāra-s (offering bath, dress, food, lights, fragrance etc.) mentally, perform a few recitations of Her root mūla mantra and also meditate upon the meaning and significance of the Kāmakalā bīja īm̐.

om̐ hrīm̐ kṣam̐ bhakṣa jvālā jihve karāladaṃṣtre pratyaṅgire kṣam̐ hrīm̐ hum̐ phaṭ

ॐ ह्रीँ क्षँ भक्ष ज्वाला जिह्वे करालदंष्त्रे प्रत्यङ्गिरे क्षँ ह्रीँ हुं फट् ।

To our left, create a śaṭkoṇa (hexagram) resembling a star-of-David with a bindu (dot) at the centre. Draw a circle outside the hexagram and a triangle within the hexagram. Also, draw a square enclosing the circle. To our right, create a triangle, a circle around it and a square encompassing the circle. Please a plank or any other support base for the Kalaśa. This plank is called an ādhāra (support). Now invoke the ādhāra śakti by meditating upon Her (om̐ ādhāra śaktibhyo namaḥ) and invoke the bīja am̐ and place the water vessel (conch) upon the plank, once again invoking the ‘hṛn’ mantra for purifying the water contained in the vessel. Add some Ganges water if available, place sandal paste and red unguent (kuṃkuṃ) reciting the praṇava mantra om̐. One can also worship the Sun, Moon, Fire deities and other kalās (phases of the moon), show the dhenu mudra, recite any śrī pratyaṅgirā devi mantra, to establish the Kalaśa and make it a general arghya (ablution) vessel, which is also termed as samānārghya (conch shell designated for this purpose). Take some water from the conch using an uddharaṇi (which is like a spoon with a deeper trough to hold more water) and transfer to a small container for use in the following procedures.

 

The following mantra can be invoked to please the powers of all the holy rivers –

gaṅge ca yamune caiva godāvarī sarasvati narmade sindhu kāveri jalesmin sannidhiṃ kuru

गङ्गे च यमुने चैव गोदावरी सरस्वति नर्मदे सिन्धु कावेरि जलेस्मिन् सन्निधिं कुरु।

b. Viśeṣa kalaśa –

Once the samānārghya is established, sprinkle water on the left and once again adore the vahni (agni) maṇḍala with the following mantra worshipping all the deities contained within. The Viśeṣa Kalaśa can now be placed on the plank – ādhāra.

     ram̐ vahni maṇḍalāya daśa kalātmane namaḥ

     रँ वह्नि मण्डलाय दश कलात्मने नमः ।

Reciting the phaṭ (फट्) mantra, purify the Kalaśa, pour water inside it, adorn with silk clothes around the vessel, flowers etc. and invite Devi to establish Herself at the centre. The Arka (Sun) and Soma (Moon) maṇḍala-s are now invoked with the following mantras –

For Sun maṇḍala -

    am̐ arka maṇḍalāya dvādaśa kalātmane namaḥ

    अँ अर्क मण्डलाय द्वादश कलात्मने नमः । 

For Moon maṇḍala –

o candra maṇḍalāya ṣoḍaśa kalātmane namaḥ

 ॐ चन्द्र मण्डलाय षोडश कलात्मने नमः ।

Now pray to the Divine Mother and offer simple pūja with flowers, rice grains (akṣata-s). Now display the avaguṇṭhana mudra (move the index finger with the other fingers closed, in a circle) around the Kalaśa, indicating protection by the Divine Mother, using the mantra ‘hum̐’ (हुँ). Now recite the śrī pratyaṅgirā devi mūla (root) mantra that one is initiated into (preferably the mahā pratyaṅgirā devi mantra), by looking at the Kalaśa for sometime.

om̐ hrīm̐ kṣam̐ bhakṣa jvālā jihve karāladaṃṣtre pratyaṅgire kṣam̐ hrīm̐ hum̐ phaṭ

ॐ ह्रीँ क्षँ भक्ष ज्वाला जिह्वे करालदंष्त्रे प्रत्यङ्गिरे क्षँ ह्रीँ हुं फट् ।

Following which, sprinkle water around the Kalaśa, reciting the ‘namaḥ’ mantra. Place some sandal paste reciting the śrī pratyaṅgirā devi mūla (root) mantra,

om̐ hrīm̐ kṣam̐ bhakṣa jvālā jihve karāladaṃṣtre pratyaṅgire kṣam̐ hrīm̐ hum̐ phaṭ

ॐ ह्रीँ क्षँ भक्ष ज्वाला जिह्वे करालदंष्त्रे प्रत्यङ्गिरे क्षँ ह्रीँ हुं फट् ।

also some flowers on the vessel and pray to the Divine Mother to release us from all sins forthwith! Recite the following mantras thrice, for that purpose –

evameva parabrahma sthūla sūkṣma mayam druvam

kacodbhāvam brahma hatyām tena te nāśayāmyaham 1

एवमेव परब्रह्म स्थूल सूक्ष्म मयम् द्रुवम् ।

कचोद्भावम् ब्रह्म हत्याम् तेन ते नाशयाम्यहम् ॥ १ ॥

sūrya maṇḍala sambhūte varuṇālaya sambhave

tena satyena he devi brahma hatyām vyapohatu 3

वेदानाम् प्रणवो बीजम् ब्रह्मानन्दमयम् यदि ।

तेन सत्येन हे देवि ब्रह्म हत्याम् व्यपोहतु ॥ ३ ॥

om ̐vām̐ vīm̐ vūm̐ vaim̐ vaum̐ vaḥ

brahma śāpamocitā surā devyai namaḥ 4

ॐ वाँ वीँ वूँ वैँ वौँ वः ।

ब्रह्म शापमोचिता सुरा देव्यै नमः ॥ ४ ॥

hrīm̐ śrīm̐ krām̐ krīm̐ krūm̐ kraim̐ kraum̐ kraḥ

surā kṛṣṇa śāpam mocaya mocaya aṃṛtam śrāvaya śrāvaya svāhā 5

ह्रीँ श्रीँ क्राँ क्रीँ क्रूँ क्रैँ क्रौँ क्रः

सुरा कृष्ण शापम् मोचय मोचय अंऋतम् श्रावय श्रावय स्वाहा ॥ ५ ॥

om ̐haṃsaḥ suci-ṣadvasur-antarikṣa saddhotā vediṣat atithi droṇasat nṛṣadvarasdṛta sadvyoma sadabjā gojā ṛtajā adrijā ṛtam vṛhat 6

Using the direction format of the śrī pūjā, worship the Āvaraṇa-s. Sit facing the Eastern direction and the top of the yantra is now facing the Eastern direction, with the bottom facing the west and ourselves.

Note:- The caturtāri-s “om̐ aim̐ hrīm̐ śrīm̐” apply only to the Āvaraṇa-s 8, 9 and 10. But references do exist in some texts, for applying them to all the Āvaraṇa-s. For consistency, they have been added to all Āvaraṇa-s. One can follow either of the traditions.

1. Starting from the bhūpura (gates) the first āvaraṇa is worshipped, consisting of the direction lords for all the 10 directions, including top and bottom. Flowers or flower petals from the left hand and the water from the right hand can be used for worshipping the yantra. Pūja is with the flowers and tarpaṇa is with water.

11.Homam

Homam is the fire ritual that is offered to the deity to help us achieve our cherished desires, keep away negative forces and to crush adversaries in competitions.

First of all, We start with worshipping Lord Gaṇapati to help us succeed in our endeavor, to perform this homam.

प्रसन्नवदनं ध्यायेत् सर्वविघ्नोप शान्तये ॥

Let us meditate on Lord Viṣṇu clad in white with four arms, dispelling all obstacles with a smiling demeanor. He is Lord Gaṇapati, the remover of all obstacles.

Now, we proceed to the next step with sipping the water through the ācamana process.

Meaning – Let us meditate upon the lion faced Divine Mother who rules all the three realms and is the most terrifying in form and action. She is emitting fire from our wide gaping mouth and is dark in complexion. She is holding a trident and sword and is ready to protect Her devotees at all times and vanquish all enemies, internal and external.

J. Homakuṇḍa pūja (होमकुण्ड पूज) –

Now, we need to worship the fire ablutions vessel (homa kuṇḍa) before the homam process can start.

    1. vīkṣaṇa (वीक्षण) – The mūla mantra should be recited, while glancing at the homa kuṇḍa. The same mantra that was used earlier for the nyāsa-s should be recited

om̐ hrīm̐ kṣam̐ bhakṣa jvālā jihve karāladaṃṣtre pratyaṅgire kṣam̐ hrīm̐ hum̐ phaṭ

ॐ ह्रीँ क्षँ भक्ष ज्वाला जिह्वे करालदंष्त्रे प्रत्यङ्गिरे क्षँ ह्रीँ हुं फट् ।

    1. prokṣaṇa (प्रोक्षण) –  Recite the ‘phaṭ’ (फट्) mantra and sprinkle water around the homa vessel with the darba (long grass stalks) grass stalks.
    1. tāḍaṇa (ताडण) – Recite the ‘phaṭ’ (फट्) mantra thrice and sprinkle water inside the homa vessel with the darba grass stalks.
    1. abhyukṣaṇa (अभ्युक्षण) –  Recite the ‘hum̐’ (हुं) mantra and take water in the palm and sprinkle at all places on the homa vessel.

 

  We need to recite the mūla mantra once again –

ॐ ह्रीँ क्षँ भक्ष ज्वाला जिह्वे करालदंष्त्रे प्रत्यङ्गिरे क्षँ ह्रीँ हुं फट् ।

Following which, we need to display the namaskār mudra to the homa vessel and recite the following mantra –

śrī pratyaṅgirā devatā homakuṇḍāya namaḥ

श्री प्रत्यङ्गिरा देवता होमकुण्डाय नमः

1. In the place where homa is to be performed, draw a square, preferably using rice flour.

2. Now place the homa kuṇḍa on this.

3. It would be ideal to spread some sand on the surface of homa kuṇḍa.

4. Take two dharba grasses (kuśa grass) and draw three parallel lines beginning from west and ending in the east and again another three parallel lines starting from south and ending in north. This is shown in the image below. Touch right fingers in water (ātma pañchapātra), touch the dharba grasses used above and then put away these grasses in the direction of south west and again touch the water.

                        om̐ hrīm̐ om̐

                        ॐ ह्रीँ ॐ

        Follwing which, recite the mūla mantra and offer flowers to the vessel –

om̐ hrīm̐ kṣam̐ bhakṣa jvālā jihve karāladaṃṣtre pratyaṅgire kṣam̐ hrīm̐ hum̐ phaṭ

ॐ ह्रीँ क्षँ भक्ष ज्वाला जिह्वे करालदंष्त्रे प्रत्यङ्गिरे क्षँ ह्रीँ हुं फट् ।

 

V. Agni pratiṣṭhapana (अग्नि प्रतिष्ठपन) -

Before establishing fire in the homa vessel, we need to take a pledge, utter the purpose and perform some nyāsas as described below –

  1. saṅkalpa mantra (सङ्कल्प मन्त्र) –Utter the following mantra for the pledge –

Before the Homam for the main deity is started, we need to follow the below procedures –

  1. Offer our obeisances to the guru with the following mantra and offer one oblation in the fire –

śrī gurubhyo namaḥ ।

श्री गुरुभ्यो नमः ।

om̐ śrī pratyaṅgirā devatā yogapīṭhāya namaḥ ।

ॐ श्री प्रत्यङ्गिरा देवता योगपीठाय नमः ।

  1. Now the mūla mantra should be recited ten times with svāhā appended at the end. One must assume that Śrī Pratyaṅgirā devi is now invoked into the fire and Her yantra is formed inside the Homa Kuṇḍa.

om̐ hrīm̐ kṣam̐ bhakṣa jvālā jihve karāladaṃṣtre pratyaṅgire kṣam̐ hrīm̐ hum̐ phaṭ svāhā

ॐ ह्रीँ क्षँ भक्ष ज्वाला जिह्वे करालदंष्त्रे प्रत्यङ्गिरे क्षँ ह्रीँ हुं फट् स्वाहा ।

 

  1. Prāṇapratiṣṭhā (प्राणप्रतिष्ठा) –

The below mantra is recited to infuse life into the yantra that is deemed to be established in the homa kuṇḍa. Place the right hand above the homa kuṇḍa at the shoulder level and recite the below mantra thrice.

  1. The pañcapūjā procedures are performed offering pādyam, arghyam and ācamanam to śrī pratyaṅgirā devi first and then the five procedures are invoked. –

om̐ śrī pratyaṅgirāyai namaḥ pādyam samarpayāmi ।

ॐ श्री प्रत्यङ्गिरायै नमः पाद्यम् समर्पयामि ।

The pañcapūjā procedures are deemed to be performed on the homa vessel, by offering sandalwood powder, flowers, incense and waving a lamp in a clockwise direction three times. Now submit a little portion of the naivedya offerings (non-watery and easily flammable) to the homa vessel with the following mantras.

  1. Now uttering the below mantra, contemplate the oneness of the mouths of Lord Agni and Devi Pratyaṅgirā.

agni śrī pratyaṅgirā devatā ekīkaraṇārdham pañcaviṃśati āhutim hoṣyāmi ।

अग्नि श्री प्रत्यङ्गिरा देवता एकीकरणार्धम् पञ्चविंशति आहुतिम् होष्यामि ।

Complete 25 recitations of the mūla mantra with svāhā appended.

om̐ hrīm̐ kṣam̐ bhakṣa jvālā jihve karāladaṃṣtre pratyaṅgire kṣam̐ hrīm̐ hum̐ phaṭ svāhā

ॐ ह्रीँ क्षँ भक्ष ज्वाला जिह्वे करालदंष्त्रे प्रत्यङ्गिरे क्षँ ह्रीँ हुं फट् स्वाहा ।

अग्नि श्री प्रत्यङ्गिरा देवता नाडी सन्धानार्धम् एकादश आहुतिम् होष्यामि ।

11 invocations of the mūla mantra are to be completed with svāhā appended.

om̐ hrīm̐ kṣam̐ bhakṣa jvālā jihve karāladaṃṣtre pratyaṅgire kṣam̐ hrīm̐ hum̐ phaṭ svāhā

ॐ ह्रीँ क्षँ भक्ष ज्वाला जिह्वे करालदंष्त्रे प्रत्यङ्गिरे क्षँ ह्रीँ हुं फट् स्वाहा ।

  1. Make offerings to the pīṭha devata-s, āvaraṇa devatas with the following mantras, contemplating their presence in the homa kuṇḍa.

ॐ ह्रीँ क्षँ भक्ष ज्वाला जिह्वे करालदंष्त्रे प्रत्यङ्गिरे क्षँ ह्रीँ हुं फट् स्वाहा ।

 

  1. Homa prārambham (होम प्रारम्भम्)

The homa of śrī pratyaṅgirā begins now. The mūla mantra, with svāhā appended must be recited as many times as desired. At least 108 or 1008 or more, if time permits. All the iṣṭa kāmya dravya-s (wish fulfilling fire ritual supplies) can be mixed with clarified butter (ghee) and put in the fire with each invocation of the mūla mantra, at the time of reciting ‘svāhā’. Care should be taken NOT to put too much to make the fire humungous or to fill up the homa kuṇḍa to the brim. Use best judgment based on the size of the homa kuṇḍa.

In general, yellow sesame seeds, lots of red chillis, havan samāgri (powder) packets and if available sticks associated with various planets, cow dung cakes etc. may also be used, based on the size of the homa kuṇḍa.

om̐ hrīm̐ kṣam̐ bhakṣa jvālā jihve karāladaṃṣtre pratyaṅgire kṣam̐ hrīm̐ hum̐ phaṭ svāhā

Oblations should be offered to Lord Brahma the Creator, with the following mantra. Make 8 offerings in the homa kuṇḍa.

श्री प्रत्यङ्गिरा देवतायै बलिम् समर्पयामि ।

P. Pūrṇāhuti (पूर्णाहुति) –

The final offering that is made in the fire is called pūrṇāhuti, signifying the completion of the homam fire ritual. The following procedures need to be followed –

  1. Recite the below mantra to begin the pūrṇāhuti process –

pūrṇāhutim juhomi ।

पूर्णाहुतिम् जुहोमि ।

  1. Take a cloth, wrap up some fruits, flowers, a dry coconut, some fragrance, sandalwood and any other desired materials. The tied up bundle should be considered a devata and salutations must be offered to it. Offer dhūpa, deepam etc. to it, by displaying the pañca pūja mudras.
  2. Pour ghee with offering 12 counts of the mūla mantra with svāhā appended, on to the pūrṇāhuti bundle. This is done with the sruci and sruva ladles placed on each other like previously done.

om̐ hrīm̐ kṣam̐ bhakṣa jvālā jihve karāladaṃṣtre pratyaṅgire kṣam̐ hrīm̐ hum̐ phaṭ svāhā

ॐ ह्रीँ क्षँ भक्ष ज्वाला जिह्वे करालदंष्त्रे प्रत्यङ्गिरे क्षँ ह्रीँ हुं फट् स्वाहा ।

  1. Now, place the pūrṇāhuti bundle into the homa kuṇḍa, culminating the ritual.

Generally, the fire should become huge at this time. Sometimes, it may not due to the residual and unburnt material inside the homa kuṇḍa. We once again offer 25 counts of ājyāhuti (selfless) homa offerings of the mūla mantra, with svāhā appended.

om̐ hrīm̐ kṣam̐ bhakṣa jvālā jihve karāladaṃṣtre pratyaṅgire kṣam̐ hrīm̐ hum̐ phaṭ svāhā

ॐ ह्रीँ क्षँ भक्ष ज्वाला जिह्वे करालदंष्त्रे प्रत्यङ्गिरे क्षँ ह्रीँ हुं फट् स्वाहा ।

A betel leaf with a large red rice mound or a lemon laced with kuṅkum is placed in the North-Eastern side around the homa kuṇḍa. The following śloka is recited for the same and water and akṣata-s are offered.

ye raudrā raudrakarmāṇo raudra sthāna nivāsinaḥ ।

yoginohyugrarūpāśca gaṇānām adhipāścaye ।

सर्व विघ्नकृद्भ्यः सर्वभूतेभ्यो हुँ फट् स्वाहा ॥

S. Devatā udvāsanam (देवता उद्वासनम्)

Now, we bid farewell to the deity śrī pratyaṅgirā devi and thank for all the blessings received. The following śloka is recited.

yatra brahmādayodevāḥ naviduḥ paramam padam ॥

yatra brahmādayo devāḥ tatra gaccha hutāśana ॥

गच्छ त्वम् भगवन् वह्ने स्वस्थानम् कुण्डमध्यतः ।

anena mayā kṛtena homena śrī pratyaṅgirā devatā suprasanno varado bhavatu ।

अनेन मया कृतेन होमेन श्री प्रत्यङ्गिरा देवता सुप्रसन्नो वरदो भवतु ।=

After reciting the above śloka, we put water and akṣata-s into the homa kuṇḍa.

suvar bhuvar bhūromiti digvimokaḥ ।

सुवर् भुवर् भूरोमिति दिग्विमोकः ।

Finally, we release the bind on all directions and end the pūja.
