|21. Omoi-nanyoke Hitogata-Hoh
(the Heavenly rule for protection against the disasters from Omoi)
| You should make a sketch of your figure on a piece of paper sketching
one by one, the hair, eyebrows, eyes, nose, mouth, and navel. And next,
put the other's name, birth-date, and sex, in accordance with your knowledge,
and write an incantation of "" [Omoi Nagarete Mizu To Nare: Let Omoi be flown away and be changed to water.]" on the sketchled sheet. Keep on, one sheet a day, for six days. And last, write another incantation of " "[Omoi Nagarete Mizu To Naru: Omoi has flown away and has changed to water]" on the sketched sheet on the seventh day. Purify (exorcise) your body with the sketched and written sheet, one sheet a day (for one person), and then throw it into a river or the sea, or burn it to ashes outdoors, and sprinkle some salt on the ashes. In writing the other's name, birth-date, and sex, and the incantation on each of the sketched sheet, you must do it while reading it in an audible voice.
