A Hindu Prayer To Grow Hair
Born from the bosom of wide earth the goddess, god- like plant, art thou: So we, Nitatni! dig thee up to strengthen and fix fast the hair. Make the old firm, make new hair spring, lengthen what has already grown. Thy hair where it is falling off, and with the roots is torn away, I wet and sprinkle with the plant, the remedy for all disease.
