On the eleventh day of the delivery or on
any other suitable date, ladies of the neighborhood, near relatives and
ladies in the house collect in the morning. The mother and the baby are
properly bathed and suitably dressed. Thereafter small pieces of bhojpatra
bark are burnt and lighted barks moved round the heads of the two by turns.
A specific folk song is chanted, perhaps to ward off the bad omens and
to wish a further safe delivery in due time. This has its origin in the
sanskara, one of the sixteen prescribed in the rule book. These pieces
of the bark are then dipped into the water kept in a pot nearby. This is
called Burza Myet.
