1. 101

    असपिण्डं द्विजं प्रेतं विप्रो निर्हृत्य बन्धुवत् । विशुध्यति त्रिरात्रेण मातुराप्तांश्च बान्धवान् ॥ १०१ ॥

    A Brahmana, having carried out a dead Brahmana who is not a Sapinda, as (if he were) a (near) relative, or a near relative of his mother, becomes pure after three days;

  2. 102

    यद्यन्नमत्ति तेषां तु दशाहेनैव शुध्यति । अनदन्नन्नमह्नैव न चेत् तस्मिन् गृहे वसेत् ॥ १०२ ॥

    But if he eats the food of the (Sapindas of the deceased), he is purified in ten days, (but) in one day, if he does not eat their food nor dwells in their house.

  3. 103

    अनुगम्येच्छया प्रेतं ज्ञातिमज्ञातिमेव च । स्नात्वा सचैलः स्पृष्ट्वाऽग्निं घृतं प्राश्य विशुध्यति ॥ १०३ ॥

    Having voluntarily followed a corpse, whether (that of) a paternal kinsman or (of) a stranger, he becomes pure by bathing, dressed in his clothes, by touching fire and eating clarified butter.

  4. 104

    न विप्रं स्वेषु तिष्ठत्सु मृतं शूद्रेण नाययेत् । अस्वर्ग्या ह्याहुतिः सा स्यात्शूद्रसंस्पर्शदूषिता ॥ १०४ ॥

    Let him not allow a dead Brahmana to be carried out by a Sudra, while men of the same caste are at hand; for that burnt-offering which is defiled by a Sudra’s touch is detrimental to (the deceased’s passage to) heaven.

  5. 105

    ज्ञानं तपोऽग्निराहारो मृत्मनो वार्युपाञ्जनम् । वायुः कर्मार्ककालौ च शुद्धेः कर्तॄणि देहिनाम् ॥ १०५ ॥

    The knowledge (of Brahman) austerities, fire, (holy) food, earth, (restraint of) the internal organ, water, smearing (with cowdung), the wind, sacred rites, the sun, and time are the purifiers of corporeal (beings).
