Oṣṭha (ओष्ठ) refers to a specific part of the kuṇḍas “fire-pit” described in the twenty-fifth chapter of the Īśvarasaṃhitā, dealing with the classification of the places for building the fire-pits. Accordingly, “two semi-circles are to be laid within the yoni with the string half the size of that part. Thus it gets two strings (for marking). The fourth part which is within the position dug shall be avoided from the enclosed part. The remaining part shall be dug as stated before or equal to it. The yoni shall be made to be longer by a quarter (measurement) and raised in the bottom, touching the lip which resembles the lip (oṣṭha) of the elephant”.
