Hindu religious works to the Sacred
Thread , but everything known about

Book except the description of the
^exact mode of making the Brahma Knot,
here supplied.

will show this to be nothing more than a form of Bowline or ^Granny Weaver
ingeniously applied to keeping the
three coils in order while [fastening?]
the ^two ends securely. It is a matter
of religious importance that the
ends should not be seen. Being

Bowline or Weaver should not be

Granny was used in ^all both of two^ three
Brahma Knots dissected by the writer.
