It is preferable to use Bhimseni camphor for casting off the evil-eye. The mission of every component is decided upon by its inherent characteristics and qualities of the component.
Ordinary camphor has Tarak (Saviour) Principle. It is used to invoke the Tarak Principle of the Deity during worship.
Bhimseni camphor has Marak (Destroyer) Principle. It is used to invoke the Marak Principle of the Deity during worship. Due to the characteristic of Marak Principle, it is more useful in destroying negative energies. Hence, use Bhimseni camphor for casting off evil-eye.
3. Method of casting off the evil-eye using camphor
A piece of camphor is held in the right hand and moved around the individual afflicted with the evil-eye three times in a clockwise direction from the feet to the head and then moved down again. Then, the camphor is burnt on the floor.
- When compared with other elements used for casting off the evil-eye, fragrance of camphor has greater capacity to absorb the distressing vibrations, congregate them in the camphor and then destroy them with the help of fire. Hence, it is not necessary to make any specific mudras to attract negative energies, such as the cross-handed mudra required for casting off the evil-eye with mustard seeds and salt.
After moving the camphor around the person, it is not thrown into the fire (smouldering coal) but is kept on the ground and burnt.
