Bhojpatra 3" Square

Vedic Yantras are written on a special bark called as Bhojapatra. The bark of betula utilis is used for writing sacred mantras, which are placed in an amulet and worn around the neck OR kept in puja altars, for protection and blessing. This practice is mentioned in the Lakshmi Tantra, a Pancaratra text. According to the legend, the bark was also used as clothing by attendants of Lord Shiva.

The papery layer of birch bark is considered to be highly astringent agent. By virtue of such quality its external use is recommended as styptic (to stop bleeding) and to stop any purulent discharge. Hence it is used more often to clean the wounds. Ayurveda also uses Birch in many formulations for obesity and other disorders of lipid metabolism. It has been described to be effective herb for treatment of obesity.
