Mihin ju suta mangay kai, moti batai dora Upara mauma ramaya kai, sadhai uthakarabhora Sadhai uthakara bhoa dedha allista ki kijai. Tako sidhi karai, hatha apane me lijai Nasa randhara men mela kara khincai anguli doya. Pheri bilouana kijiye neti kahiya soya, Naka kana aru danta ko roga na vyapai koya. Ujjvala hovai naina hi nita neti kari soya. Twist a thick cord out of thin, fine thread; soak it in water through and through. Get up early and use just 12 inches of this cord, thrust it up your nose, draw it down your throat then out of the mouth after chewing it thoroughly. This done daily you are free from all the diseases of the nose, ears, teeth and your eyes will be sparkling bright. An hour after this exercise, pour a couple of drops of warm butter into each nostril. These nose drops will be of special benefit if used before resting during day or before retiring for the night.
