Making of Pure Gomaya Vibhuti
Vibhuti , in an age-old practice , is made out of pure Gomaya (cow dung) of Indian breed cows in a
Vaideeha mode during the annual Maha Sivarathri festival. In what is typically described as Sivarathiri Muttan, the cow dung cakes are
prepared and dried and placed in layers of hay, karukkai ( paddy without rice) and Varatti( cow dung cakes) in a formation resembling a LINGAM.
This is made from pure cowdung every month on Sivarathri day. Cow dung cakes are
dried on rocks to avoid dust and sand particles.The cow dung cakes are baked along
with hay and Karukkai (paddy husk).
On the morning of Sivarathiri, Ganapathy Puja and Viraja Homam as mentioned in "Bhasmajaloupanishad"
are performed by Vaideehas who have completed Vedic studies and the Agni is lit. It takes about 7 -10 days for the fire to get extinguished.
At the end, the cow dung cakes will be completely burnt and will become ash.
This is then filtered to remove other particles and filled in containers.
Pure Gomaya Vibhuti is then distributed to Asthikas through our network.
