(Notes on Indian Folk Mysterious Literature, Himalayan Folk Mysterious Literature, Kumauni Folk Mysterious Literature, Garhwali Folk Mysterious Literature, Folk Mysterious Literature from Ravaeen region of Garhwal)
Ravayeen region comes under western part of Uttarkashi a valley between Yamuna and Tons rivers. Yamnotri a pilgrim place is situated in the area of Ravayeen.
Bhoot mantra is very common in India. Dr. Naudiyal provides the following Bhoot mantra from Ravayeen region.
The mantra is not a Garhwali language mantra at all. The reason is that Nathpanthi sages and preachers initiated Mantra concept in Garhwal from sixth century. Nathpanthi preachers from sixth century to fourteenth century were from Braj, Rajasthan and Punjab regions. That is the reason that most of the mantras in Garhwal and Kumaun are in Braj, Rajasthani or mixed languages.
Secondly, it is clear from following mantra that the mantra is based on Sankhy Yoga (auto suggestion principle as you find in Shrimad Geeta and Mahageeta ). The subject of story or spiritual subject is usually based on the story line of Lord shiva or his worshippers because Nathpanth is based on Shaivism. It is also found that these mantras are also found in Shavri Mantra Pothi.

गुरुजा माता ने आणी , पार्वती माता ने जाणी
अटे - जटे गुरु-गुरु को नाथ , कहाँ लगाऊं
अंग में लगाऊँ निलथापू माथे पे लगाऊँ
