Olga says that in the past during Urs Sar people cut soil with grass on it and brought it home. One such piece was placed in the shed with cows and another on the stove or near the hearth inside the house. Monks sprinkled libations in four different directions saying that it was meant for the river Manych. Candlewicks were wrapped only with one layer of cotton, because any more layers signified disease.
