ailabakArebhyo namaH

Facing south we sung the jarAbodhIya and sprinkling water with a clump of darbha from the pot into which had been stirred in the black tila. We place the piyAru-s in the mouths of the howling dogs of rudra:
rudrasyailabakArebhyo .asaMsUktagirebhyaH |
idaM mahAsyebhyaH shvabhyo .akaraM namaH ||

rudra’s howling dogs that devour their prey whole
To these dogs with mighty maw I humbly offer obeisance.
