1. For seven days before the burning of the Parah Adumah, the Kohen who performed the service was sprinkled with the purifying waters of the Parah Adumah. Similarly, for seven days before Yom Kippur service, the Kohen Gadol was sprinkled with the purifying waters of the Parah Adumah.
2. The Mishnah discusses the law in situations in which the meat of the Korban Pesach became Tamei and the fats were Tahor, and vice versa.

1. Rebbi Meir: They were sprinkled for seven consecutive days in order to ensure that they were sprinkled on the third and seventh days of any Tum'ah they might have acquired. Rebbi Yosi: They were sprinkled only on the third and seventh days.
2. If the meat is Tamei but the fat is not, the blood is not sprinkled on the Mizbe'ach. If the fat is Tamei and the meat is Tahor, the blood is sprinkled on the Mizbe'ach.
3. The blood of other Korbanos is sprinkled on the Mizbe'ach even when the meat is Tamei and the fat is not. This is not the law in the case of the Korban Pesach, because the main objective is that the meat should be eaten.
4. In a case in which the meat became Tamei before it could be eaten, there is a dispute about whether one fulfills his obligation of Korban Pesach and thus does not need to offer a Korban Pesach on Pesach Sheni.
5. Even though no one will be able to eat a k'Zayis of the meat of the Korban Pesach, they fulfill their obligation since each person could theoretically eat a k'Zayis of the Korban.
