A description of the experience

The Atharvaveda translated by Maurice Bloomfield

From near thy vicinity
from near thy distance do I call
remain here
do not follow the Fathers of yore.
Firmly do I fasten thy life's breath.

Whatever sorcery any kinsman or stranger has practised against thee
both release and deliverance with my voice do I declare for thee.

If thou hast deceived or cursed a woman or a man in thy folly
both release and deliverance with my voice do I declare for thee

If thou liest ill in consequence of a sin committed by thy mother or thy father
both release and deliverance with my voice do I declare for thee

The source of the experience
