In the Hindu custom Obligation is the act of offering something, such as worship or thanks, to a deity.
The householder after pouring oblations to the gods, sages, and progenitors, is to offer oblations with fire, not headed by any other rite, to Brahma
. Oblations are made with such ceremonies, and in such form, as are adapted to the religious rite, which is intended to be subsequently performed. The residues of oblations are then offered to Lord Indra
, Varuna, and Soma, at the four cardinal parts of his dwelling. An oblation is also prepared in the north-east quarter it is to be presented to Dhanvanthri.
