Original verse of the formula –

तुलाम् पुष्करमूलस्य तदर्धं दुरालभा ।
तदर्धेन तु धान्यकम् व्योषाच्च पलविंशति ॥
मंजिष्टा कुष्ट मरिचं कपित्थं देवदारु च ।
रोध्रम् कृमिघ्नं चविका पिप्पलीमूलमेव च ॥
उशीरं काश्मरीफलम् रास्ना भार्ंगी च नागरम् ।
एषा द्विपलिकान् भागान् चतुर्द्रोणेऽभसे पचेत् ॥
द्रोणशेषे कषाये तु पूते शीते प्रदापयेत् ।
गुडस्य त्रिशतं तत्र धातक्या पलविंशति: ॥
मरिचं केशरं श्यामा एला त्वक् पत्रकं पलम् ।
पिप्पलीनां तु कुडवं चूर्णम् ॥
