बलामूलकषायस्य भागाषट्पयसस्तथा। यवकोलकुलुत्थानां दशमूलस्य चैकतः ॥

निष्काथभागो भागश्च तैलस्य च चतुर्दश। द्विमेदादारूमंजिष्ठाकाकोलीद्वयचंदनैः॥

सारिवाकुष्ठतगरजीवकर्षभसैंधवैः। कालानुसारीशैलेयवचाऽगुरूपुनर्नवैः॥

अश्वगंधावरीक्षीरशुक्लायष्टीवरारसैः । शताहाशूर्पपर्येलात्वक्पत्रैः श्लक्ष्णकल्कितैः ।।

पक्कं मदग्निना तैलं सर्ववातविकारजित् । सूतिकाबालमर्मास्थिक्षतक्षीणेषु पूजितं ।

ज्वरगुल्मग्रहोन्मादमूत्राघातान्त्रवृद्धिजित् । धन्वंतरेरभिमतं योनिरोगक्षयापहं।
