Manifestation of dasha maha vidya Once, lord Shiva requested Vishwakarma to construct a grand palace and a magnificent throne for him. When everything was ready, Shiva invited all the deities for the crowning ceremony of lord Vishnu. Lord Vishnu was requested to be seated on the throne and was worshipped by all the deities including Shiva himself. He assured lord Vishnu that all of his (Vishnu's) incarnations would be shown respected by his (Shiva's) devotees (Ram) am the incarnation of Vishnu." Sati was now completely satisfied. She was also ashamed of herself that she had doubted Shiva’s words. She went to lord Shiva. Lord Shiva stopped looking at Sati, as her consort, because she had personified herself as mother Sita. This fact was even corroborated by a heavenly voice. Now Sati's heart was filled up with sorrows. She followed disenchanted Shiva to the Kailash Mountain, where he commenced his meditation and went into Samadhi. She sat down without saying a word. When lord Shiva came out from his Samadhi, he saw her stire sitting their. He felt pity on her and drove away her guilt and sorrows, by giving discourses. Daksha’s Animosity towards Shiva Once, the sages organised a yagya at Prayaga, which was attended by all the deities. Lord Shiva too had come, accompanies by Sati. He was eulogized and worshipped by

www.Shakthiyoga.com Dhasha maha vidya all the deities and the sages. Daksha arrived there and after making salutations to lord Brahma sat down without showing any kind of respect to Shiva. After that, all the deities and the sages came and made salutations to Daksha, but Shiva sat where he was sitting. The ignorant Daksha cursed Shiva that from now onwards his (Shiva's) share would not be kept in the yagya. At this Nandi- the vehicle of Shiva became very angry and cursed Daksha that from today onwards the brahmins would fail to understand the essence of Vedas. Lord Shiva then pacified Nandi's anger and both of them went back to their abode. Daksha too went back to his place and started having hatred towards Shiva. Daksha organised a yagya at 'Kanakhal' in which everybody except Shiva and Sati were invited. Sage Dadhichi arrived and not finding the seat for Shiva went back, saying that it was impossible to accomplish a yagya without Shiva. Then Daksha commenced the yagya with the assistance of other sages who were present there. When Sati saw all the deities going happily, she became curious to know where they were going. She requested her companion to ask the moon as to where he was going in such a cheerful mood. The moon told her companion that they were going to attend the yagya ceremony, being organised by Daksha. Sati was very surprised at this information. She went to lord Shiva and sought his permission to go there. Lord Shiva then told Sati that her father did not invite them because of the animosity he was having towards him (Shiva).

Sati became very furious and decided to go there to know about the reason why Daksha was performing the yagya without inviting her husband-Shiva. Forbidden by Siva to attend the sacrifice, Satl becomes enraged and accuses him of neglecting her. In her anger her eyes become red and bright and her limbs tremble. Seeing her fury, Siva closes his eyes. When he opens them, a fearsome female stands before him. As he looks at her, she becomes very old, her graceful appearance disappearing. She develops four arms, her complexion becomes fiery and her hair disheveled, her lips are smeared with sweat, and her tongue lolls out and begins to wave from side to side. She is naked except for a garland of severed heads; she wears the half moon as a crown. Standing before Siva, she blazes like a million rising suns and fills the world with earth-shattering laughter. Siva is afraid and tries to flee. He runs around in all directions, but then the terrible goddess gives a dreadful laugh, and Siva is too petrified to move. To make sure that he does not flee from her terrjble form, Satl fills the directions around him with ten different forms (the Mahavidyas).Wherever Siva goes or looks she sees a dreadful figure, and his fear increases. Unable to flee, he stands still and closes his eyes. When he opens them, he sees before him a smiling woman whose face is as pleasing as a lotus blossom. She is black, her breasts are large, and she is naked. Her hair is disheveled, and she glows with the brilliance of a million suns. Siva asks: "Where is my beloved Sati?" She replies: "Do you not see Satl standing before you?"Siva then asks who the other goddesses are who surround him and is told their names: Kali, Tara, Kamala, Bhuvanesvari, Chinnamasta, Sodasi, Sundari, Bagalamukhi, Dhumavatl, and Matarigi. In relation to Siva, who is

facing south, Kali is in front of him (to the south), Tara above him, Chinnamasta to his right (west), Bhuvanesvari to his left (east), Bagala behind him (north), Dhumavatl to the southeast, Tripura-sundari to the southwest, Matarigi to the northwest, and Sodasi to the north east. At one point,Satl, in her terrible, black form, which is sometimes said to be Kali, tells Siva that these ten goddesses are her different forms." A l l these figures are my excellent forms, and I abide in manifold forms.After the Mahavidyas have surrounded Siva and he has been told who they are, he acquiesces to Sari's wish and says that she may attend her father's Sacrifice Tara merges with Kali at this point, and the other forms disappear Satl leaves the Mahavidyas behind with Siva, instructing them to look after him in her absence. She explains that she has created these forms to attend Siva when she is away. Then Satl, taking on a form that wears a tiger skin and has disheveled hair, a fearsome face, and fiery red eyes, heads off to Daksa's sacrifice, flying through the sky. Shiva sent Nandi and other rudraganas as her escorts. When Sati reached, where Daksha was performing his yagya, she met her mother and sisters. They met her with all the respect and honour. But Daksha did not even caste a glance at her. Imitating him many other people did the same. But Sati not bothering about the disrespect shown to her made salutations to both her parents. When she reached near the yagya-mandap she saw that shares of all the deities was there except that of Shiva.

www.Shakthiyoga.com Dhasha maha vidya She became furious and asked her father as to why be Shiva not invited to the yagya. Daksha then made fun of Shiva and cursed him. This made her angrier and she declared that she would give up her life in everybody's presence. After the declaration her mind was engrossed by the thoughts of Shiva. Sati then sat in padmasan and closed her yes. By her yogic powers she united with Shiva and her lifeless body fell into the yagya-kunda. This incident shocked everybody and the rudraganas furiously picked up their weapons. Right then a heavenly voice was heard. "O means Daksha! Share on you! You are a sinner and a fool. Now you are certain to face the wrath of Shiva. Because of your act, the deities too will have to suffer." Daksha became scarred. He immediately eulogising lord Vishnu. When Nandi informed Shiva about Sati's death, he became very furious. He angrily pulled out locks of hair and dashed it against the mountain, which got divided into two parts. From one part manifested the valiant Veerbharda and from the other part Mahakali. Veerbhadra and Mahakali were instructed by Shiva to destroy the yagya of Daksha and to kill all the people who were present during the time of Sati's death, including the deities and the sages.After getting the instructions from lord Shiva, Veerbhardra marched with a huge army which included the mighty Shivaganas like Dakini, Bhairav and Kapalish etc. Goddess Kali to joined him with her army which consisted of all her nine incarnations like Katyayani etc. As the army marched on numerous auspicious signs were visible.A terrible battle was fought between the armies of Veerbhadra and the deities. The deities got defeated and fled away. They went to lord Vishnu and sought his help. Lord Vishnu decided to fight on the side of the deities. The battle recommenced for the second time. Lord Vishnu having a dual fight with Veerbhadra and the deities were fighting against his army. Suddenly everybody heard a heavenly voice which said that Veerbhadra was invincible. Hearing this, Lord Vishnu and Brahmaji went to their respective abodes. Daksha ran for his life and hid himself behind the attar where the yagya was being performed. But Veerbhadra pulled him out from there and severed his head. He then threw his head in the agni-kunda. After this he returned back to Kailash accompanies by his army

Story of chinnmasta One day lord Shiva accompanied by his ganas like Bhringi, Nandi, etc, arrived at

Himalaya, with the purpose of doing penance. When Parvati father Himalaya came to know about his arrival, he went to receive him. After he had made his salutations to Shiva, he was instructed by Shiva to see that he is not disturbed while doing his penance. Himalaya made all the necessary arrangements so that Lord Shiva could perform his penance without being disturbed. One day Himalaya arrived at the place where lord Shiva was doing his penance. Parvati too came along with him. Himalaya requested him to keep Parvati, so that she could be at his service. Lord Shiva declined to keep her with him, fearing her presence might cause hindrance in the path of his penance. Now, Himalaya became very concerned about his daughter's future and wandered whether Parvati would remain unmarried when Parvati saw her father becoming worried by Shiva's response she decided to intervene. She said to lord Shiva- "I am 'Prakriti' (Nature) and you are the 'Purusha' (almighty). You exist in the 'Sagun' form (with form) because of me. In my absence, you will find it impossible even to exist." Lord Shiva was impressed by her knowledge. He allowed her to be present near her. Himalaya and Parvati became very pleased. Parvati used to come daily at the place where lord Shiva was doing his penance. Her companions too used to come along. She used to engage herself in the worship of lord Shiva with great devotion. Though lord Shiva was very much impressed by her devotion, but he decided that he won't marry her until she has proved her mettle by her tremendous penance. The deities were tormented by a demon named. Tarakasur. They went to Lord Brahma to seek his help. Lord Brahma sends 'Kamadeva' to disturb the Samadhi of Shiva,

This is called Kapaala moksa--liberation by the skull. The confluence of Bindu and Nada (Light and Sound / Lightning and thunder, Siva and Sakti, Seed and ovum / Sveta Bindu and Sona Bindu) creates a cascade of Tattvas which result in matter and life; what Chinnamasta does on the cosmic scale, the recumbent couple do it on a smaller microcosmic scale. The amorous couple are on the physical plane, while Chinnamasta is on the spiritual plane; Prana has risen from the genital triangle to Ajna Chakra and beyond through Susumna Nadi to Sahasrara Chakra where the union of Siva and Sakti produces nectar which suffuses throughout the body. In the amorous couple, the flesh is rising and the spirit is sinking. The trodden lovers living in Muladhara and Svadhisthana planes can control their senses to reach Brahmarandhra with the grace of Chinnamasta who lives in Ajna Chakra). energy quence their thirist parvati mounted on ratis back with head less body as she mounted the thirist of three was quenced she put back her head and became normal, parvati gave boon that who ever dous the sadana of this form called chinmasta they will be fulfilled with bestowed with super natural powersand went to the adobe of shiva thus chinmasta was born Lord Brahma told Narada that the deities decided to send Kamadeva to influence lord Shiva so that the marriage between him and Parvati is felicitated. Indra called Kamadeva and told him that the demon king Tarakasur could be killed only by such a person who was the son of Shiva and Parvati. Indra instructed Kamadeva to arouse passion in lord Shiva, so that he agrees to marry Parvati after reaching the place where lord Shiva was engrossed in his meditation, Kamadeva made repeated attempts to arouse passion in the heart of lord Shiva, but his actions were no avail. Right then, Kamadeva saw Parvati arriving accompanied by her companions. From vihara yatra she was looking divine in her beauty. Just at that moment lord Shiva too had come out of his meditational trance. Kamadeva thought that it was the most appropriate moment to have a go. Kamadeva struck lord Shiva with his 'Kamabana' which did have a deep impact on him. Lord Shiva was struck by the awesome beauty of Parvati and his heart became full of passion for her. But at the same time he was surprised at the sudden change in his behaviour. He realized that it was an act of Kamadeva.Lord Shiva looked all around him. He saw kamadeva standing towards his left side, with a bow and arrows in his hands. Now he was fully convinceed that it was indeed an act of Kamadeva. Kamadeva becameterrified, he started remembering god, but before the deities could come at his rescue the third eye of lord Shiva got opened and Kamadeva was reduced to ashes. Sage Narada then gave the five lettered mantra - NAMAH SHIVAYA' to her and he also instructed her to do penance. Parvati heart was filled up with new enthusiasm. Parvati's power created such heat in the atmosphere that the whole world started to burn. All the deities & sages went to lord Brahma and told him about the effects, Parvati's penance was having on all the three worlds Lord Brahma accompanied by all of them went to Vishnuji. They visited the place where Parvati was doing her penance. They realized that lord Shiva was the only remedy and hence all of them went to lord Shiva and made salutations to him.Lord Shiva enquired about the purpose of their arrival. Lord Vishnu then revealed to him that how distressed and tormented were the deities by the activities of the demon - Tarakasur. He also told Shiva that he could be killed by such a person, who is born out of the parentage of Shiva and Parvati. Lord Vishnu then told Shiva about Parvati's penance. Initially lord Shiva refused to comply with their request but when the deities continued with their insistence, he ultimately gave his conscent. The deities became very pleased.shiva and parvathi thus got married Murtha for upasana

This is done to give back to nature what nature gave us i.e. to get the required effects from the Sadhana articles, and then to return them back to natural elements. You should drop the articles in the running water (river, stream etc.). While dropping, meditate on the Divine form of revered Gurudev and concentrate that “I am returning the Sadhana articles back to nature. May I achieve full success in my endeavor?" After dropping the Sadhana articles in the water, you may continue to do Mantra chanting daily without using the rosary. You cannot reuse the Sadhana articles after dropping them in water. However, if you feel that you have made some mistakes in performing Sadhanas, and/or have not gotten the complete effects of performing Sadhana, then you may repeat the Sadhana with the same Sadhana articles. In this case, you don't need to drop the Sadhana articles after performing Sadhana first time. You may repeat the Sadhana on any other auspicious day.

www.Shakthiyoga.com Dhasha maha vidya The Kali Mantra as given in the Mantra Mahodadhi is: "Kreem Kreem Kreem Hum Hum Hreem Hreem Dakshine Kaalika Kreem Kreem Kreem Hum Hum Hreem Hreem Swaha" This mantra should recited 1500 times in the morning at bhrmamurtha for 45 days It bestows the eight supernatural powers (astha shiddih) The Sadhana of Mahakali can be started on any moonless night. Sit facing South on a black mat. Place a steel plate filled with black sesamum seeds before yourself. On it place Mahakali Yantra. Pray to the Yantra Offer vermilion and rice grains on the Yantra. Next chant 11 rounds of the following Mantra with Mahakali Mala - This is a fourteen day Sadhana. After the Sadhana throw the articles in a river on any full moon night. Red, purple flowers can be used Mahakali has forever been worshipped as the saviour of good in its perpetual struggle against evil. When even Gods were on the verge of being overcome by the demons, She manifested kal (time) in this "Rudra" (angry) form and that was the end of seemingly unconquerable demons like Raktbeej. Her form - long, lolling tongue dripping blood, a garland of freshly severed human heads around her neck and snakes coiled around her arms and ankles in lieu of armlets and anklets - is enough to strike terror in the most evil of humans. Her Sadhana means not just attaining courage and valour but also the divine grace of Shiva, her consort. Rudra Mahakali is the annihilator of all pains, afflictions, problems and enemies in one’s life. On her Sadhak she bestows perfect health and youth. Death cannot come uncalled to such a person. Her divine presence means birth of supreme conscience and intelligence. A hypnotic charm keeps radiating from the physique of a Siddh of Mahakali. Friends he has many and foes dare not harm him. Like a mother, Kali fulfils all needs of a Sadhak and blesses him with wealth, fame, respect and a happy family life. And where she assures material prosperity, she also ensures spiritual upliftment. Goddess Mahakali is the most superior of the ten aspects of Mahavidya. She blesses the Sadhak with everything he needs to lead a pleasant life in this world. Swami Ramakrishna Paramahamsa worshipped Mahakali and attained all types of Ashta Siddhis. Goddess Mahakali removes the effects of Shani dosha. She is the supreme deity of Kalikula systems. As the chosen Deity worshipped by Paramahansa Ramakrishna, one of the most well known modern teachers within the Hindu tradition, Kali is one of the most commonly known of Hindu Goddesses, but still not well understood. Yet much of what we admire in Ramakrishna – his love, bliss, and universal spirit – is Kali’s gift to us through him. Through him Kali has already delivered us her message for the modern age. To this Supreme Time-force, Shakti of Kala, the Tantrics give the name kali. To the Tantrics this creation is no illusion; it is as real as the Creator, and in the process of winning the Godhead they do not lose the world. Theirs is not a mok,a, liberation somewhere beyond. Following the Vedic and the Vedantic seers, their aspiration aims at a liberation here and now, in the life itself. But the existence is devoured by Time and death is the end of life. In the journey of life, at each step, at every moment man is dogged by the shadow of death and all his high aims and noble aspirations are vitiated by this tragic culmination. It is the fear of death That makes man mortal. No attempt on the path of progress will have meaning, no Sadhana successful unless and until this fear is overcome. Death has to be faced; the significance of the Time-concept has to be understood. So the Tantra lays down the adoration of Kali, the Timeforce, as the first and foremost of all disciplines of knowledge. So the Tantric sees the world as a great cemetry, maha dmadana. In this maha drnaiana, the Divine Mother Kali dances. Her dance indicates the intense activity, the myriad moments of the Time-sequence following in quick succession. She is Death the devourer, the ruthless kilter. Mounted on a

www.Shakthiyoga.com Dhasha maha vidya dead body, terrible is she with ferocious fangs; and a derisive laughter marks her face. Stark naked, the Dark One with her lolling tongue has for her garland a string of skulls. She has four Hands; in two of them she has the sword and the severed head, and the other two, the auspicious Mother keeps for giving boons and allaying fear. Thus the Tantric contemplates on the dark Mother.' To him two of her personalities stand out in contemplation. They are dakFitja kali and bhadra kali. Both dakfipa and bhadra are Vedic words. A divine discernment, a right action born out of an intuitional discrimination, adroitness in execution—these are denoted by the term Dakshina. It is true that Kali is the might of the Supreme, the stupendous strength of all the Gods and she carries in her wake death and devastation. She sweeps the whole existence with her terrible tide of destruction, no doubt. But she does this with a divine discernment. Her act of destruction is a right action as it is done with a purpose. It is not a clumsy execution but a skilful performance, preparing the ground. So she is acclaimed as Dakshina Kali. But what is the purpose of this destruction? What ground does the dark death prepare? It is the right creation, all auspiciousness and felicity belonging to the state of truth denoted by the Word Bhadram that is brought about by the death and destruction. So she is Bhadra Kali the auspicious Kali She represents the evolutionary principle and her cosmic actions work out the gradual unfoldment of the divine possibilities. In terrestial existence, natural calamities like earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, cyclones, flood, pestilence etc., are her actions designed for a quick upheaval. So also are wars, revolutions, riots etc., designed by her to hasten human progress. In the being of the Individual she is the power of transformation; the dormant dynamism, the potential energy of evolution. She is the black serpent lying coiled and asleep in the inner body, Kundalini Shakti. Under proper conditions this force uncoils itself, stands up straight like a serpent, spreading its hood and lifts itself more and more till it meets the divine consciousness above. When this takes place, the closed planes and parts of being in man open, there is a gradual unfoldment or a speedy transformation towards the Yogic consciousness. Whether one consciously makes an effort to raise the Kundalini or not, in all paths of Yoga, at one time or other, the effects of Kundalini's play are experienced in the inner body. Thus the grace of Kali is indispensable for any kind of transformation or progress Which is the avowed object of any yoga? The Mantra of Kali is the seed-sound bijäkyara krim. She is Kundalini in the body expressing herself as activity through the Pranic force. The body and the spirit are brought together by the life-force, the vital, the outward symbol of which is the flowing breath, in and out of the body, all the time. The vital or the Pranic force in the individual is a replica of the Pranic force in the cosmos, the Time-movement, which is Kali. Through the vital, the Pranic force, the being is transformed and the earthly life made spiritual. As the vital is the seat of emotions, all swift, straight and frank impulses, all intense feelings are the movements of Kali. A spiritual Sadhana is prescribed to win the grace of Kali. Time is life. Life is our movement in time. Through our own life-force or Prana we experience time. Kali as time is Prana or the life-force. Kali or the Divine Mother is our life. She is the secret power behind the working of our bodily systems and vital energy. Only through her do we live, and it is her intelligence that gives such a marvellous order to the body. Kali is the love that exists at the heart of life, which is the immortal life that endures through both life and death. Maintaining the awareness of the eternal nature of life through the cycles of birth and death is another one of her meditational approaches. The truth is that our soul, our aspiration towards the Divine, which is our eternal love, never has died and never will die. To be conscious of that enduring aspiration is to die to the things of the mind and the senses, and come to know the cosmic life and Divine grace.

www.Shakthiyoga.com Dhasha maha vidya Kali grants us this eternal life. Yet the eternal life has a price. Only that which is immortal can be immortal, as nothing can change its own nature. The mortal and the transient must pass away. To gain the eternity that is Kali, our mortal nature must be sacrificed. Hence Kali appears frightening and destructive to the ordinary vision. Kali as the power of death and negation is Nirvana, the state of the dissolution of desire. She functions to extinguish all of our wants and cravings and merge us into the Nirvanic field, the realm of the unborn, uncreate, and unmanifest. Kali develops forms only to take us beyond form. When her force awakens within us she works to break down all limitations and attachments, so that we might transcend the entire field of the known. Kali is the power of action or transformation (Kriya-shakti). Through time and breath all things are accomplished. Yet what she accomplishes is not a mere outer action. She accomplishes the spiritual labour of our rebirth into pure consciousness. For this she creates the energy and does the work if we surrender to her force. Kali means beauty. The root kal, from which the name comes, means “to count,” “to measure,” or “to set in motion,” hence “time.” It also refers to what is well-formed or measured out, hence beauty. Time itself has a movement, a rhythm, a dance which is the basis of all beauty. This is also the rhythm of the life force which allows for movement. Kali is dark blue in colour and wears a garland of skulls. She has her long tongue sticking out and is laughing. Sometimes instead of a tongue she has two fangs. Kali has four arms and four hands and holds a head chopper with one hand and a severed head dripping blood with the other. With her other two hands she makes the mudras of bestowing boons and dispelling fear. She wears a skirt made of human arms. Kali is portrayed as dancing in a cremation ground and striding on a corpse (who is the form of Lord Shiva himself).

www.Shakthiyoga.com Dhasha maha vidya In Hinduism, the goddess Tara (Sanskrit: Tārā, meaning "star" is the second of the Dasa (ten) Mahavidyas or "Great Wisdom [goddesses]", Tantric manifestations of Mahadevi, Kali, or Parvati. As the star is seen as a beautiful but perpetually self-combusting thing, so Tara is perceived at core as the absolute, unquenchable hunger that propels all life. Tara is said to be more approachable to the devotee (Bhakta) or Tantrika because of her maternal instincts; however a large population of Bengali Hindus approach Kali herself as "Ma" or "mother". In Tantras, the god Shiva forbids every Sadhaka to see any difference in Kali and Tara,[ and warns that those who think them separate shall go to hell as punishment If Om is removed it becomes the Ekajata Mantra. If Om & Phat both are removed it becomes Nila Saraswati Mantra Goddess Tara or Goddess Neela Saraswati gives the devotee – the power of speech, the power of destruction of enemies, and salvation. She removes the malefic effects of Brihaspati dosha or Guru Graha dosham. Businessmen worship Goddess Tara for best results in their businesses. Tara is not only an important Hindu Goddess, she is also the most important of the Buddhist Goddesses. The Bodhisattva Tara is the consort of the great Buddha Avalokiteshvara; the Lord who looks down with compassion on all living beings.The second of the Maha Vidyas is Tara. From a comparative study of Tantric books on Tara and the Buddhistic and Jaina literature, some scholars have advanced the theory that Goddess Tara is a late and subsequent addition to the Tantric pantheon and her worship has become prevalent in this land only after the advent of Buddhism and Jainism. In the Buddhistic lore, Tara figures as the counterpart or Shakti of avalokitedwara, the Lord who has directed his glance downwards, Lin compassion. In the Mahayana school, she is represented as the mother of the Buddhas as well as Bodhisattvas. At times she is depicted as a Bodhisattva, not inferior to any other, rather superior who could be approached directly without the intervention of any other power The Tantric books speak of Tara as Ugra Tara ; the 'Fierce Tara, having Akshobhya posited on her head. The seer of the Mantra of Tara also is Rishi Akshobhya. The Tantras call her prajfid paramita, one who has attained the shore of consciousness. They prescribe mallet cinlicdra as the method for propitiating her Tara' one understands that Tara was invoked to allay all kinds of fears arising from lions, elephants, fire, serpents, robbers, submerging waters, ocean and ghosts.2 She was the one who quickly granted the desired ends and was called to guard at the cross-roads. 3 One of the images of Tara excavated at Nalanda had on the back Engraved the Mantra, om tare tuttiire lure swand: tura or twara, has, always been the quality of Tara and she has been quick in granting favours. Also Tara has been mentioned in connection with the crossing of waters and navigation. The famous laghustava indicates that one should remember Tara in the upsurge of waters, taram catoyaplave. Shiva who did not lose his presence of mind. He was the one that was unagitated, ak1vobhya, and at the instance of his Shakti, he swallowed the poison to save the world. His Shakti is Tara, the Saviour, the one who carried them all to the path of safety. The Sanskrit word Tara comes from the root tr, to traverse. It is used to denote one who crosses, tarati, and makes others cross as well, tarayati. Tara or Taraka is the word in Sanskrit to denote a star as it traverses in space and acts as guiding light. It is also an appellation for the guiding light in the human eye, the pupil, because of which the eye is justly called nayana or netra, that which leads. A boat is called tari, as it makes one cross the waters. The image of the ocean and the crossing of waters is largely employed in the ancient litanies of the Vedic seers. The Veda speaks of two oceans, superconscient, and inconscient, one high above and the other down below. We can quote many Riks to show that the art of shipbuilding or navigation was not unknown to them. For instance, in the famous Rik, jatavedashi addressed to Agni and later ascribed to the Goddess Durga in the Tantra, the Vedic Seer affirms that Agni carries him across all tribulations like a ship across the ocean naveva sindhum. And the Divine Mother, Aditi, is

www.Shakthiyoga.com Dhasha maha vidya accosted as the Divine Ship and the Seer prays : " May we ascend Aditi for Beatitude, the Divine ship endowed with quick propellers, faultless, intact without slits, a capable protector, spacious as earth like heaven to which no hurt can come, a happy shelter and skilful carrier."' Om is the sovereign source, seed, womb of thing and idea, form and name—it is itself, integrally, the Supreme Intangible, the original Unity, the timeless Mystery self-existent above all manifestation in supernal being." Undoubtedly, it is this pranava, Om that is known by the famous appellation, tara or taraka. The force whose sound-symbol is Om is the great goddess Tara. That which the Vedic seers call as Akshara, the Upanishadic sages as Pranava and the Puranic bards as the immaculate white Gouri, that force is the Tara of the Tantrics.2 Thus, the Maha Vidya Tara is the primordial nada, the paiyanti yak, the seeing Word perceiving the coining creation, the sound-substance of all sounds, thehighly praised Pranava, the anujfiakFara, the word of sanction, the affirmative to the creative Godhead, the source of all speech and the repository of all knowledge. The Tantra mentions three of her great Personalities : Ugra Tara, Nila Saraswati and Ekajata. Ugra Tara, as her name indicates, is fierce and like Kali is mounted on a corpse. Hers is the vehement vibration that disturbs the primordial immobility, hers is the sound-force shattering the stubborn stillness, The Tantra says that she gathers all the ignorance of the triple worlds in her bowl made of the human cranium and then destroys it in a sweep'. Nilasaraswati is the power of the word piercing the tenebrous space, the light of knowledge that pierces through the darkness of ignorance. Ekajata is the goddess with a single matted hair signifying that all the scattered vibrations of sound are being channelised in the act of creation. She is not muktakedi, her hair falling loose, her energies scattered, but Ekajata her forces moblised in the purposive act of creation. Tara is also classified as neela and citra. scukla, white, is her immaculate form, pure and unsullied, the"original Word in its pristine glory. neela, blue or dark, is her form when she descends into the dark womb of creation from the height of her white radiance. doe, the multicoloured, is the manifestation of Tara as the many forms in the work-a-day world. Apart from this, Ugra Tara is worshipped by the Mantra, om hrim strim, hum phat, Ekajata by the Mantra, hrim strim hum phat and Nilasaraswati by the three seed-sounds hrim strim hum. The tradition is that the Mantra is propagated by female Gurus. When a child is born, even before three days are passed, the mother of the child or some other woman writes with a small shoot of vaca dipped in honey or ghee on the tongue of the newborn child the three letters of the Mantra of Neela Saraswati. 1 Thus purified from the very birth by the Mantra, the tongue becomes a sure vehicle of superb Speech When the Tantric lays stress on bath, Cleanliness etc., the votaries of the Achara ask the question: What is this bath, and for whom is this bath? Kim snanam kasya VA snanam. From this it has been hastily concluded in some quarters that this Achara is the practice of the dirty infidels who have no belief in the customs and Manners of the Hindu worshipper. On the other hand, this is a highly philosophical system. The aim of worship is to become the deity and worship the deity, givo bhutva, s (Nam yajet). In that case, where is the question of purity or bath etc.? Again, certain periods of the day or night like the Sandhyas are prescribed as auspicious for worship. But in this world created by God, everything is auspicious. There is nothing like an inauspicious moment. 1 Auspicious is the moment when the thought of God arises. And the thought of God should always be there. Tara is nitya yak, the eternal Word, reverberating without any intermission as the underlying sound-substance Om in all beings, the never-ending nada in the hearts of all, the ajapa, that which goes on endlessly repeating itself without any effort of articulation. So in the worship of such a deity, there is no regulation regarding time and place, no restriction regarding posture etc. There is no prescribed period for japa, prayer or consecration. Eternal is Tara and constant should be her worship. In the Sadhana of this Mahavidya, the aspirant should be an absolute servitor of Truth. Especially in speech he should never allow falsehood, in whatever form to enter. Falsehood drives away the Goddess. For this purpose, certain spiritual disciplines prescribe absolute silence. But this is avoiding the problem. Moderation

By Dr Anand babu Adyatmika scientific research center


www.Shakthiyoga.com Dhasha maha vidya in speech is much more difficult than keeping silent and this should be practised. Recital of the Vedas, sticking at all costs to Truth in speech, talking only what is helpful and necessary— these practices speedily make the aspirant a vehicle for stuklii's manifestation. To realize clod, the aspirant should treat praise and blame equally, enjoy the underlying sound-sense equally in rhythmic Poetry and in pandemonious noise. He should appreciate the harmony as well as the discordant note and perceive the rasa in the songs and cries of people. He should not be attached to sound, neither should he be indifferent to it. Such a one gets the favour of clod, the multicoloured personality of the goddess Tara in the myriad manifestations of the universe. There is no goddess like Tara in granting favours, nahi tardsamd kacit devata siddhidayini proclaims the Tantra. She is the Saviour who assures thus: “I guide man to the path of the Divine and guard him from the red Wolf and the Snake. The term Tara means the deliverer or savior, from the Sanskrit root tri, meaning “to take across,” as to take across a river, the ocean, a mountain, or any difficult situation. The Goddess Tara is called upon in emergencies or at crossroads where we require guidance as to which way to turn. Tara is the saving knowledge. She is the Saviouress. The idea of the Goddess as saving wisdom is as old as the Vedas, and is a common idea in many spiritual traditions. Tara is the feminine form of Om or Om personified as a Goddess. Tara is the unmanifest sound that exists in the ether of consciousness, through which we can go beyond the entire manifestation. Tara is Om that has the appearance of the ether and which pervades the ether as its underlying vibratory support, but also transcends it. Om is the unmanifest field behind creation, which is the destroyer as well as the creator of the universe. Tara is the purifying force of the vital breaths. Sound that manifests in the ether is the same as the Prana (life-force) that manifests in the ether. Breath is the primal sound of life, and the sound of the breath is the original, spontaneous and unuttered mantra (So’ ham). Both mind and Prana, as word and vibration, have their root in sound. Hence the use of sound or mantra both purifies and energizes the mind. Tara is the radiance of knowledge that arises from the differentiation of meanings through sound. Different sounds serve as vehicles whereby different ideas or meanings flash forth. Om is the underlying light that illumines these different sounds and allows meaning to flow through them. All meanings exist to reintegrate us into the ocean of meaning that is pure consciousness itself. Tara, like Kali, is deep blue in color. She has matted hair, wears a garland of human heads, and has eight serpents for her ornaments. She is dancing on a corpse, has four arms and carries in her four hands a sword or head chopper, a scissors, a severed head and a lotus.

3. Chinnamasta: Mantra Om Shrim Hreem Hreem Aim Vajra Vairochaniye Shrim Hreem Hreem Phat Svaha This mantra should be recited 1000 times daily Goddess Chinnamasta gives the devotee – the power of determination, the strength of straightforwardness, and the courage to fight against anyone. Chhinnamasta, whose image is a severed head, is the Goddess who causes us to cut off our own heads or to dissolve our minds into pure awareness. She brings transcendence of the mind and represents the nonmind (unmana) state. Freed from the limitations of the mind, consciousness realizes its true nature beyond death and sorrow. Chhinnamasta – which literally means “a severed head” – is perhaps the most frightening or disturbing form of the Goddess. She has cut off her own head and, holding it in her left hand, with it drinks the blood flowing from her own severed neck. Yet her face is not frightening but happy, even blissful. What she presents is the joy of transcending the body, not the pain of losing it. She is also the most energetic form of the Goddess and shows the power of transformation in action. Chhinnamasta (Sanskrit: िछनमसता, Chhinnamastika and Prachanda Chandika, is one of the Mahavidyas, ten Tantric goddesses and a ferocious aspect of Devi, the Hindu Divine Mother. Chhinnamasta can be easily identified by her fearsome iconography. The self-decapitated goddess holds her own severed head in one hand, a scimitar in another. Three jets of blood spurt out of her bleeding neck and are drunk by her severed head and two attendants. Chhinnamasta is usually depicted standing on a copulating couple. Chhinnamasta is associated with the concept of self-sacrifice as well as the awakening of the kundalini – spiritual energy. She is considered both as a symbol of self-control on sexual desire as well as an embodiment of sexual energy, depending upon interpretation. She symbolizes both aspects of Devi: a life-giver and a life-taker. Her legends emphasize her sacrifice – sometimes with a maternal element, her sexual dominance and her selfdestructive fury. Though she enjoys patronage as part of the Mahavidyas, her individual temples – mostly found in Northern India and Nepal – and individual public worship is rare, due to her ferocious nature and her reputation of being dangerous to approach and worship.

By Dr Anand babu Adyatmika scientific research center


www.Shakthiyoga.com Dhasha maha vidya Her individual worship is restricted to heroic, Tantric worship by Tantrikas, yogis and world renouncers. Chhinnamasta is recognized by both Hindus and Buddhists. She is closely related to Chinnamunda – the severed-headed form of the Tibetan Buddhist goddess Vajrayogini. Chhinnamasta is popular in Tantric and Tibetan Buddhism, where she is called Chinnamunda ("she with a severed-head") – the severed-head form of goddess Vajrayogini or Vajravarahi – a ferocious form of the latter, who is depicted similar to Chhinnamasta. Chhinnamasta is described as being as red as the hibiscus flower or as bright as a million suns. She is depicted mostly nude and with dishevelled hair. She is described to be a sixteen-year-old girl with full breasts, having a blue lotus near her heart. Chhinnamasta is depicted wearing a serpent as a sacred thread and a garland of skulls/severed heads and bones, along with other ornaments around her neck. She carries her own severed head – sometimes in a platter or a skull-bowl – in her left hand and holding a khatri, a scimitar or knife or scissor-like object, in her right hand, by which she decapitated herself. A crown on the severed head and bangles, waist-belt ornaments may be also depicted. Three streams of blood string from her neck, one enters her own mouth, while the others are drunk by her female yogini companions, who flank her. Both the attendants – Dakini to her left and Varnini to her right – are depicted nude, with matted or dishevelled hair, three-eyed, full-breasted, wearing the serpentine sacred thread and carrying the skull-bowl in the left hand and the knife in the right. While Dakini is fair and represents the tamas guna, Varnini is red-complexioned and conveys the rajas guna. With her right leg stretched and left leg bent a little, Chhinnamasta stands in a fighting posture on the love-deity couple of Kamadeva (Kama) – a symbol of sexual lust – and his wife Rati, who are engrossed in copulation with the latter usually on the top (viparita-rati sex position). Below the couple is a lotus and in the background is a cremation ground. This popular iconographic form is described in the Tantrasara and the Trishakti Tantra. Sometimes, the attendants also hold severed heads (not their own). Sometimes, KamadevaRati is replaced by the divine couple of Krishna and Radha. The lotus beneath the couple is sometimes replaced by a cremation pyre. The coupling couple is sometimes omitted completely. Sometimes, Shiva – the goddess's consort – is depicted lying beneath Chhinnamasta, who is seated squatting on him and copulating with him. Chhinnamasta's popular iconography is similar to the yellow coloured severed-head form of the Buddhist goddess Vajrayogini, except the copulating couple – which is exclusive to the former's iconography – and Chhinnamasta's red skin tone. Chhinnamasta Tantra describes the goddess sitting on Kamadeva, rather than standing on him. Additionally, she is described as three-eyed, with a jewel on her forehead, which is tied to a snake and her breasts adorned with lotuses. Another form of the goddess in the Tantrasara describes her seated in her own navel, formless and invisible. This form is said to be only realised via a trance. Sometimes, Chhinnamasta is depicted as four-armed, and without the copulating couple. She is depicted on a grass patch, holding the sword with dripping blood in her upper right hand, a breaded head – identified with Brahma – in the lower one. Her upper left hand carries her own severed head, spilling blood in a skull-cup in her lower hand. Her two attendants depicted as skeletons drinking the dripping blood, while two jackals drinking the blood dripping from the head of the goddess and Brahma. The scholar van Kooij notes that the iconography of Chhinnamasta have the elements of heroism (vira rasa) and terror (bhayanaka rasa) as well as eroticism (sringara rasa) in terms of the copulating couple, with the main motifs being the offering of her own severed head, the spilling and drinking of blood and the trampling of the couple.

By Dr Anand babu Adyatmika scientific research center


www.Shakthiyoga.com Dhasha maha vidya Chhinnamasta signifies that life, death and sex are interdependent. Chhinnamasta's image conveys the eternal truth that "life feeds on death, is nourished by death, necessitates death, and that the ultimate destiny of sex is to perpetuate more life, which in turn will decay and die in order to feed more life"While the lotus and the lovemaking couple symbolize life and the urge to create life, in a way gives life-force to the beheaded goddess, the blood flowing from goddess conveys death and loss of the life-force, which flows into the mouths of her devotee yoginis, nourishing them. The scholar P. Pal equates Chhinnamasta with the concept of sacrifice and renewal of creation. Chhinnamasta self-sacrifices herself and her blood – drunk by her attendants – nourishes the universe. An invocation to her calls her the sacrifice, the sacrificer and the recipient of the sacrifice, with the severed head treated as an offering. The Chhinnamasta icon is also understood as a representation of the awakening of the kundalini – spiritual energy. The copulating couple represents the awakening in the Muladhara chakra, which corresponds to the last bone in the spinal cord. The kundalini flows through the central passage in the body – the Sushumna nadi and hitting the topmost chakra, the Sahasrara at the top of head – with such force that it blows her head out. The blood spilling from the throat applies the upward-flowing kundalini, breaking all knots (granthis) – which make a person sad, ignorant and weak – of the chakras. The severed head is "transcendent consciousness". The three blood streams is the flow of nectar when the kundalini unites with Shiva, who resides in the Sahasrara. Another interpretation associates Daknini, Varnini and Chhinnamasta with the three main subtle channels (nadis): Ida, Pingala and Sushumna flowing free. Sushumna connects the Muladhara and Sahasrara and is cognate with the spinal cord. Ida courses from the right testicle to the left nostril and is linked to the cooling lunar energy and the right hand side of the brain. Pingala courses from the left testicle to the right nostril and is associated with the hot solar energy and the left hand side of the brain. The self-decapitation also represents removal of false notions, ignorance and egoism. The ability to remain alive despite the beheading is associated to supernatural powers and awakening of the kundalini.The triad of the goddess and the two yoginis is also philosophically cognate to the triad of patterns, "which creative energy is felt to adopt". While she is easily identified by most Hindus and often worshipped and depicted as part of the Mahavidya group in goddess temples, Chhinnamasta is not as popular as an individual goddess. Her individual temples as well as her public worship are rare. Her individual worship is restricted to heroic, Tantric worship by Tantrikas (a type of Tantric practitioners), yogis and world renouncers. The lack of her worship is attributed by Kinsley to her ferocious nature and her reputation of being dangerous to approach and worship. Her hundred-name hymn and thousand-name hymn describe her fierce nature and wrath. The names describe her as served by ghosts and as gulping blood. She is pleased by human blood, human flesh and meat, and worshipped by body hair, flesh and fierce mantras. Buddhist texts tell of the birth of the Buddhist Chinnamunda. A tale tells of Krishnacharya's disciples, two Mahasiddha sisters, Mekhala and Kankhala, who cut their heads, offered them to their guru and then danced. The goddess Vajrayogini also appeared in this form and danced with them. Another story recalls princess Lakshminkara, who was a previous incarnation of a devotee of Padmasambhava, cut off her head as a punishment from the king and roamed with it in the city, where citizens extolled her as Chinnamunda-Vajravarahi. As the power of India, Chhinnamasta is vidyut or lightening, the electrical energy of transformation (Vidyut Shakti) working in the cosmos on all levels. The electricity in the material world is only one form of this. In the mind it functions as the power of instantaneous enlightenment. While Kali rules over this force generally, Chhinnamasta

By Dr Anand babu Adyatmika scientific research center


www.Shakthiyoga.com Dhasha maha vidya represents the same force directed as the weapon of the Supreme for immediate transformation. She is the lightening bolt of insight which destroys the powers of the ignorance and lifts us beyond the skies. As lightening, Chhinnamasta represents direct perception, pure seeing which cuts through everything and reveals the infinite beyond all forms. She is the power of self-vision which sacrifices all objects, including our own bodies, to the reality of pure awareness. She represents the Atmayajna or Self-sacrifice, wherein we offer ourselves to the Divine through the sacrifice of the mind. Chhinnamasta represents the pralaya or end of the world wherein the Absolute reabsorbs or swallows up all creation. She is the head that swallows up the entire body. Hence she is the power of destruction which is the negation of the manifest sphere into the unborn and uncreates beyond. According to yogic science there are knots (granthis) which prevent the movement of energy from flowing up the Sushumna of the subtle body. These are the Brahma-granthi in the Root Chakra which represents our bondage to speech, the Vishnu-granthi in the Heart Chakra showing our bondage to emotion, and the Rudra-granthi in the third eye showing our bondage to thought. Chhinnamasta represents the piercing of the Rudra-granthi or the knot in the head, allowing us to transcend thought, the mind and body consciousness altogether. Chhinnamasta thus represents the free flow of energy through the Sushumna. She is the Kundalini Shakti flowing upward from the base of the spine to burst open the Crown Chakra and stream out into the infinite. She shows the energy of Kundalini awake and moving upwards toward transformation. She is Kundalini in her active and assertive role. As such, she represents the Vedic Path of the Gods (Devayana), which is the movement of the Prana up the Sushumna to the formless realms of pure consciousness, symbolized by the sun. CHHINMASTA DIKSHA If one looks at the form of Goddess Mother Chhinamasta one feels frightened on beholding her severed head. But in fact she is a very kind and powerful Goddess. If one is facing problems from the enemies, if one feels that some evil ritual has been tried against one then this Diksha is the best remedy. Not just this through this Diksha one's business starts to flourish, financial problems end and one becomes healthy and robust. All physical problems are banished and one feels a surge of divine energy within. Through this Diksha one can open the doors to success in several other Sadhanas. One remains healthy throughout the year and the seasonal changes have no adverse effect. 2. The Cosmic Sacrifice Chinnamasta is, ofcourse, the Cosmic sacrifice, as the Rishi Dadhychk, who gave his body and bones up in order to salvage the universe, His bones, made into the Vajra or thunderbolt of Indra, killed the great demons such as Vritra, that threatened the existence of the Devas, lead by Indra himself. Yet, she also relates to Vishvarupa (Cosmic form), the Triple-headed son of Tvashtar the creator-god, the son of, and sometimes identified with, Ushanas Kavya of the Brighus.

By Dr Anand babu Adyatmika scientific research center


www.Shakthiyoga.com Dhasha maha vidya Vishvarupa is the be-headed form of Brihaspati, Guru of the Gods. In later times, he is cognate to Ganesh (Ganapati), the Cosmic Lord, son of Maya (Parvati) and of who is the beheaded form of Brihaspati-Ganapati. Ganesh, like Vishvarupa, is well-known as representing the Cosmos.

Like Dadhyach, Indra was afraid of Vishvarupa and his teachings to the Devas, in the absence of Brihaspati, their preceptor. Hence, he be-headed the three heads of Vishvarupa (Cosmic form). Now – the three heads here, represent the three worlds (bhur, bhuvah svah), and as the Cosmos, Vishvarupa is Maya. Maya of course is the great-goddess. Here, Vishvarupa represents Chinnamasta as the goddess Maya headless (as Chinnamasta) – his three heads representing her three streams of blood. Each head also symbolizes a granthi (knot) removed – as Chinnamasta is said to remove these three granthis or knots in Sushumna (representing the three gods, Brahma, Vishnu and Rudra and the three worlds). She is hence the cosmic sacrifice. We must remove all of our desires and attachments – destroy the Universe (Maya or illusion), before we can drink her blood (drink the Soma-juice in the sahasrarapadma chakra and know the self). Soma can be expressed, simply, as “soulfood”. There is also another form that connects them. In Chandogya Upanishad, Vishavrupa appears as Virochana (greatly effulgent). He reveres the physical body as the Self, whereas Indra see’s the inner-self as real. It hence explains why Ganesh-Dadhyach-Vishvarupa, has to be slain (beheaded), before he can realize the truth – that the Self is all-pervading and within, not the outer world of Maya as he represents. Interestingly – we get back to the Danava idea here. Ushanas or Asuramaya is also Virochana and is again another “false Guru” of the Gods and the basis of the Deva-Asura split again.

3. Chinnamasta and Ganesha

Chinnamasta and Ganesh are very similar, as has been previously noted, but in many ways. Ganesha’s head was sliced off by Shiva and replaced with the head of Airavata, the elephantmount of Indra. Chinnamasta is the force of the lightening-bolt of Indra and destroys all granthis (knots) in the body, as Ganesha is the great remover of obstacles. Both can remove obstacles in modern-day life. They both harness the great power of the thunderbolt, and also of divine wisdom. Ganesha’s elephant head and the fact he was beheaded shows that he is also Lord of Higher Wisdom of the Self, like Chinnamasta, as the esoteric form of Brahma-Brihaspati. Ganesha is also associated with the planet Ketu, the tail of the dragon. Chinnamasta is also related to this planet through the fact that she represents the force of Kundalini the great Serpent of Enlightenment in Yoga, and also the headless trunk, of which is Ketu. In this respect, Ganesha can be worshipped as the Guru form of Indra as the esoteric form of Brihaspati, along with Chinnamasta and as the force of removing spiritual obstacles.

4.Lalita Tripura Sundari (Shodashi):

Tripura moola mantra should recited 2,00000 time and 20,000 mantras should be done homa with red flowers Goddess Lalita Tripura Sundari or Goddess Shodashi posses all the sixteen supernatural powers. She removes the malefic effects of Budha graham (Planet Mercury). She is the supreme deity of Srikula systems. Goddess Lalita Tripura Sundari is considered as Tantrik Parvati. Tripurasundari is not the ordinary beauty of form (which is more properly an aspect of Kamala). The highest beauty does not lie in any object, though it is not apart from objects. The highest beauty is of perception – to “hold Infinity in the palm of your hand, and Eternity in an hour,” as the poet Blake so eloquently wrote.

By Dr Anand babu Adyatmika scientific research center


www.Shakthiyoga.com Dhasha maha vidya Beauty derives from the light of consciousness that is irradiated through objects. It is never really contained in any object. Hence beauty can never pass away but merely has manifold forms for its revelation. The light of beauty we see in things is thus the light of our own awareness. Discovering this we contact the well springs of infinite delight within us. This is part of the revelation of Tripurasundari. The beauty of perception occurs only when the mind is cleansed from the known, when consciousness is cleared of its conditioning and rests in pure awareness without any residue of memory. Then whatever we see is irradiated with the light of eternity and is effulgent with the glory of our own Self as the Universal Being. Otherwise the residue of our thoughts and emotions, like a dark film, obstructs the subtle and transparent beauty and presence in things, though we may be able to perceive clearly their physical characteristics. Tripurasundari represents the ultimate beauty of pure perception which arises when we see all the universe in ourselves, when we see all nature as a reflection of the reality of consciousness. Tripurasundari is thus the beauty of nature but as seen through the spiritual eye of unity – the vision that all the universe is Brahman – that there is nothing but God above, below, within, without, to the north, south, east or west, past, present or future. Tripurasundari thus is the Goddess of Vedantic knowledge, which is the knowledge of the Supreme Self or Divine. She teaches us that all is the self and that the world is Brahman or the Absolute. From her perspective Samsara is Nirvana; the world of illusion is merged into the Absolute. Hence she is the form of the Goddess most beloved among Vedantic Swamis and teachers. She represents the knowledge of the Supreme Self. Tripurasundariis called Lalita or “She who plays.” The entire universe exists for the delight of awareness, which is the play of the Divine Mother. Creation arises in joy, and returns to joy. We are but transient figures in her eternal play, who have yet to understand the source of the energy that moves us. Our sorrow and suffering is a delusion, a misconception born of ignorance and the ego. Because we attempt to control or possess joy from the standpoint of the separate self, we divide ourselves from true joy which is universal. The Goddess, as the image of joy, shows us the way out of our error, which is not to deny ourselves happiness but to discover the true happiness that we seek, which is in being one with all. Lalita awakens the receptive soul to the bliss that underlies all things. Lalita is the deity of the Shri Chakra, the great yantra or energy pattern which underlines the entire universe, which arises from the mantra Om. She is the most blissful and beautiful of all the Goddesses, as she represents the ultimate bliss at the source of all delights. She is the deity who dwells at the summit of Mount Meru, the cosmic mountain or the mountain of the spine, and gives the orders whereby the entire universe moves. She is the Divine love which is the central motivating force behind the universe, and which is the original impulse within our own hearts. Tripurasundari is also called Rajarajeshwari or “the supreme ruler of the universe.” From her arise all the commands which govern the universe, including he command which allows us to unfold spiritually or to give spiritual teachings in the world. We must seek her command in order to do anything significant in life. Yet her command is not based on authority but love. To gain her approval we merely need be open to her love. What she allows us to do is to love her and to love everything. To discover her commands, however, we must be willing to surrender our own egoistic desires and attempt to control things.

www.Shakthiyoga.com Dhasha maha vidya Tripurasundari is often represented as a young girl of sixteen years age. As such she is called “sixteen” (shodasi) or “the young girl” (bala). At this stage of a woman’s life the delight aspect of her existence is most pronounced. Her nature is to play, to seek new experiences, and to charm others to her. Her innocence attracts to her all that is true and good. Tripurasundari is the power of consciousness, Cit-shakti. She is the awareness of the Supreme Self, Paramatman, as one with the supreme Reality or Absolute, Parabrahman. As true knowledge she is called Samvit, which is the power to comprehend all things as consciousness itself. Tripurasundari is thus the power of spiritual knowledge (jnana-shakti), which is more a matter of feeling and perception than of thought and analysis. Hence she is the form of the Goddess most to be worshipped by those following the yoga of Knowledge. She is the form of the Goddess who represents pure consciousness and the bliss that flows from it. She combines the being of Kali, with the knowledge of Tara and adds the bliss dimension of spiritual realization. The Basics of Sri Yantra: Before starting the worship it is advisable to know about the way the Sri Yantra is constructed, what all it represents, about the 9 Avaranas, the deities, their gunas and significance, so that your worship is more meaningful. The following are the authentic details as given in various Tantra & Mantra scriptures. Five downward pointing triangles representing Devi intersect with four upward pointing triangles representing Siva, forming 43 triangles including the central triangle.. From the five Shakti triangles comes creation and from the four Shiva triangles comes the dissolution. The union of five Shaktis and four Fires causes the chakra of creation to evolve. At the centre of the bindu of the Shri Yantra is Kamakala, which has three bindus. One is red, one is white and one is mixed. The red bindu is Kurukulla the Female form, the white bindu is Varahi the Male form, and the mixed bindu is the union of Shiva & Shakti - the individual as the potential Shri Cakra. Varahi, the father-form, gives four dhatus to the child and Kurukulla, the mother-form, gives five dhatus to the child. Theses represent the nine dhatus of the human body. Varahi's four fires are the 12 (4 x 3) sun Kalas, the 12 Zodiac constellations. Kurukulla's five triangles are the 15 (5 x 3) Kalas of the moon, 15 lunar Tithis. These nine triangles also represent the nine stages of growth of the human child in the womb. Surrounding the 43 triangles formed by the intersection of the nine triangles is the 16 petals circle. Surrounding the 16 petal circle is an 8 petal circle. After that the 3 lines and at the outermost part of the Sriyantra there are 3 lines called the Bhupura. The 43 triangles constitute the six inner sections called Avaranas, the two circles of petals are two more avaranas and the Bhupura of 3 lines is the last Avarana. These 9 Avaranas of the Sri Yantra have various presiding Devis. They are the Devi's Parivar (retinue) of total 108. In the Srichakra pooja they are systematically worshipped one by one with their names and mantras. The presiding Deity of Srichakra, Devi, is Known as Lalita Tripura Sundari. The form of Devi Kamakshi of Kancheepuram is the closest resemblance of the Devi as described in the scriptures. Lalita means The One Who Plays. All creation, manifestation and dissolution is considered to be a play of Devi. Tri-Pura means the three worlds and Sundari means beauty. She is the transcendent beauty of the three worlds. Tripura also signifies:- She is the ruler of the the three gunas of Satva, Rajas and Tamas; and sun, moon and fire - the zodiac and the planets, and therefore Time itself; She is also "tripura" as Will (Iccha), Knowledge (Jnana) and Action (Kriya). She is also "tripura" as intellect, feelings & physical sensation; and She is triple as the three states of the soul - awakening, dreaming and -sleeping states. Her five triangles also represent the Pancha Tatwas and the Pancha Bhootas. (This is what the verse in Lalita Sahasranama means by -"Panchami pancha bhuteshi pancha sankhyopacharini ". It is difficult to say what She is not.

The noose represents attachment, the goad represents repulsion, the sugarcane bow represents the mind and the flowery arrows are the five sense objects.

As per the rituals to be observed - various pooja books and websites prescribe long preparations and rituals for poojas. It is not possible for every one to perform a pooja like an ordained Vedic priest. Hence our scriptures allow one to do a pooja "Yatha shakti" or as per ones capability and convenience. Doing it with faith is what really matters. The minimum is: light a lamp and an incense stick and offer some prasad - if you don't have anything at home then simple milk or sugar will do. People worship the Shreechakra made of various materials and in shades. The simplest and the best one is a clear diagrammatic picture. In the olden days people used to draw the Chakra on various materials. Now you do not have to go through all the trouble. You can use a simple printed one, which is equally effective. We have enclosed one for your benefit at the top. Take a print out of it to worship. Preferably laminate it so that it is not soiled or damaged. While doing the pooja of the various deities in the Nine Avaranas, you can worship the Chakra with Akshintas (Turmeric rice) or flowers or with Panchamrut. A still better way is to worship the particular Devi in the places indicated in the pictures given in the previous pages. The Devi is worshipped in many forms and names - Lalita, Katyayani, Kameswari, Kamakshi, Durga, Chandi, Kali, and Amba etc. The closest matching form of the Shodashakshari Devi as described in the scriptures is that off Goddess Kamakshi of Kanchi. You will find it here. The Anganyasas and Karanyasa beejas are the purification ritual before the pooja. The basic Anganyasa & Karanyasa are given for the benefit of those who are conversant with this ritual. If you do not know you can omit it. If you are conversant with the other pooja rituals like Aachamanam, Bhuta Suddhi, Dehasuddhi, Shankha pooja, Kalasha pooja etc., you can perform them before the actual pooja. If you do not know simply offer a prayer to Lord Ganesha and do the pooja. At the end of the pooja offer the following prayer. "Avahanam najanami, najanami visarjanam,

By Dr Anand babu Adyatmika scientific research center


www.Shakthiyoga.com Dhasha maha vidya poojamchaiva najanamani kshamaswa Maheswari. Yatkrutam yatkarishyami tathsarvam twamarpanam, poojam poorna phalam kuru". Roughly translated it means - "I am not conversant with the Aavahana, visarjana etc.. pooja rituals and hence forgive me. Whatever I have done and I am doing, I am offering to you. Give me full results". This pooja, along with the four other poojas that must be performed before that, will take about 45 minutes time but it is more effective than any other pooja both materially and spiritually. On the top left hand side corner of the Shreechakra resides Lord Ganesha. On the top right hand side corner resides Lord Surya. On the bottom right side corner resides Lord Vishnu and at the bottom left corner of the Shreechakra resides Lord Shiva. They guard the Sri Chakra. Hence, before performing the Shreechakra pooja you must perform a brief pooja of the above four deities. These poojas are given in the Pancha Pooja section in this site.

She is the protectress of the world. Her three eyes

By Dr Anand babu Adyatmika scientific research center


www.Shakthiyoga.com Dhasha maha vidya Bhubaneswari represent icha, kriya and jnana sakti.Goddess Bhuvaneshwari is the ruler of the

world. She blesses the devotee with success in all fields of life. Lord Sri Rama worshipped Goddess Bhuvaneshwari before going to war against Ravana. She removes the malefic effects of Chandra Graha (Chandra Dosha). Bhuvaneshvari is the Queen or ruler (feminine, Ishvari) of the universe or realm of beings (Bhuvana). She is the Divine Mother as the Queen of all the worlds. The entire universe is her body and all beings are ornaments on her infinite being. She carries all worlds as a flowering of her own Self-nature. She is thus related to Sundari and to Rajarajeshvari, the supreme Lady of the Universe. The Goddess represents space. Space is the Mother or Matrix in which all creatures come into being. She is the field in which all things grow. She is the receptive spirit who gives space to allow all things their place and function. She is the cosmic womb that gives birth to all worlds. As space, Bhuvaneshvari is complementary to Kali who is time; they are the two main faces of the Goddess as both the infinite and the eternal. Bhuvaneshvari creates the stage on which Kali performs her dance of life and death. At the stage Bhuvaneshvari is also the witness, the observer and the enjoyer of the dance. As Kali creates events in time, so Bhuvaneshvari creates objects in space. All events are merely episodes in the Devine Mother Kali who is time. All places are merely phases of the dance of the Divine Mother Bhuvaneshvari who is space. The Goddess is the place, the field, the matrix in which we act to manifest the Gods. Knowing her as the ground on which we stand and the reality which pervades us, we gain the capacity (Shakti) to accomplish the highest actions, which are the practice of Yoga. Returning to her passive presence, we ourselves become the field in which the Gods, the cosmic powers, can be born and assume their roles in the cosmic creative unfoldment. Bhuvaneshvari is the cosmos (Bhuvana) personified as Goddess. Worshipping her promotes a cosmic vision and absolves us from the narrowness of opinion and belief. She helps us go beyond all identifications with creed, class, race, sex, nation and religion, to a universal understanding. She gives us world vision, a global understanding, and a sense of the infinite. As the power that measures out the universe, Bhuvaneshvari is called Maya, which also means illusion. When things are measured we are in their limited forms and forget the underlying unitary space in which they appear. This is how illusion arises. All manifest forms are merely waves in the infinite space of the Divine Mother. We must learn to see the space of the Mother, which is the embrace of consciousness, in all apparent objects of world, and no longer take their diverse forms as reality. As Kali is the power of Action (kriya-shakti) and Sundari is the power of Knowledge (jnanashakti), Bhuvaneshvari is the power of Love (iccha-shakti). Love creates space and provides freedom. It does not limit or try to posses, which is the action of selfish desire. Yet the space of love is not an empty or unfriendly space, it is a space that nurtures and gives room to grow and flower. If love does not give space, it is not a Divine Love. Bhuvaneshvari has a form like Sundari, whom she resembles in many ways, which reveals her beneficent nature. She has the colour of the rising sun, with the crescent moon on her head, with four hands and three eyes. She holds in two hands the noose and the goad. With her other two hands she gives the gestures that grant boons and dispel fears. The mantra for Bhuvaneshwari is the single syllable Hirim. Hirim is one of the most important of all mantras. It is called the Devi Pranava, or the equivalent of Om for the Goddess. Hirem refers to the heart (Hridaya). It also relates to Hri, which is modesty.

By Dr Anand babu Adyatmika scientific research center


www.Shakthiyoga.com Dhasha maha vidya Bhuvaneshvari as the Mother can be worshipped through the mantra Ma, which is the natural sound for mother. This mantra, like Hirim, can be used for the Divine Mother in all her forms. The Divine Mother is called Shri Ma (respected, beautiful or resplendent Mother), which can also be used as a mantra for her.

6.Tripura Bhairavi

Mantra Om Bhairavi Saham Sadana as seen in kali sadana Bhairavi is the sixth Mahavidya and the icon of death, whose power is irresistible and unavoidable, and which is a continuous process in the phenomenal world. Bhairavi is in charge of Nitya Laya (Pralaya or dissolution), which means decay and death of individual entities on a daily basis.

Kala Bhairavi: Goddess Tripura Bhairavi or Goddess Kala Bhairavi gives the devotee – the power to attain everything in life and triumph over the sensual desires. Tripurabhairavi Bhairavi is a fierce and terrifying aspect of the Goddess virtually indistinguishable from Kali, except for her particular identification as the consort of the Bhairava She is also called Shubhamkari, Good Mother to Good People and Terrible to bad ones.She is seen holding book,rosary,blessings and abhaya mudra.She is also known as Baala or Tripurabhairavi. Its believed that when Bhairavi entered the battle field, her horrible appearance made the demons become weak and very feeble, and it's believed that most of the demons started panicking as soon as they saw her. Bhairavi is seen mainly as the Chandi in the Durga Saptashati version of slaying Shumbha and Nishumbha. However, she kills and drinks the blood of Chanda and Munda the Chieftains of asuras, so the Goddess Parvathi gives her a boon that she would be called Chamundeshwari. In other forms she is also identified with Parvathi or Durga. When furious she is found sitting on a faithful donkey, with her mouth full of demons' blood, her body covered with a tiger skin and skeleton. She also presents the

By Dr Anand babu Adyatmika scientific research center


www.Shakthiyoga.com Dhasha maha vidya abhaya mudra and vara mudhra, and she is shown holding weapons such as a trident, axe, and thunderbolt. Mahakali has forever been worshipped as the saviour of good in its perpetual struggle against evil. When even Gods were on the verge of being overcome by the demons, she manifested in this "Rudra" (angry) form and that was the end of seemingly unconquerable demons like Raktbeej. Her form - long, lolling tongue dripping blood, a garland of freshly severed human heads around her neck and snakes coiled around her arms and ankles in lieu of armlets and anklets - is enough to strike terror in the most evil of humans. Her Sadhana means not just attaining courage and valour but also the divine grace of Shiva, her consort. Rudra Mahakali is the annihilator of all pains, afflictions, problems and enemies in one’s life. On her Sadhak she bestows perfect health and youth. Death cannot come uncalled to such a person. Her divine presence means birth of supreme conscience and intelligence. A hypnotic charm keeps radiating from the physique of a Siddh of Mahakali. Friends he has many and foes dare not harm him. Like a mother, Kali fulfils all needs of a Sadhak and blesses him with wealth, fame, respect and a happy family life. And where she assures material prosperity, she also ensures spiritual upliftment. Represents Divine anger and wrath. Yet her wrath is directed towards impurities within us, as well as to negative forces that may try to interfere with our spiritual growth. Though a difficult force to bear, her activity is necessary both to guide and to protect us. Tripurabhairavi is proverbial wrath of a woman and more specifically the wrath of a mother towards whatever may threaten her children. Tripurabhairavi represents the supreme power of speech, which has the nature of fire (Tejas). She is the Word in its unarticulated and primal form as raw energy, the flaming word which appears like a pillar or a sword to remove all resistance. She is the supreme light and heat power, the flame of consciousness itself (Cidagni)- the ultimate knowledge of truth. Tripurabhairavi as Tejas (radiance) rules over the Tanmatras, the subtle sensory potentials behind the five elements and five sense organs which allow for their inter-connection. Through the Tanmatras Tripurabhairavi gives power over the senses and the elements. She is the basic will-power of life, mastering control of all of its manifestations. Tripurabhairavi is known as Durga, the Goddess who saves us from all evils and odds. Durga rides a lion, a symbol of fire or solar energy, from which she wields her weapons of light to destroy all demons or negative forces. She helps take us away off disease, sorrow, darkness and death. The fierce form of Divine energy exists within us as the power of transforming heat (Tapas). Tapas is sometimes translated as asceticism. More properly it is a heightened aspiration that consumes all secondary interests and attachments. When we really focus on one object, we naturally lose our attraction to other things. Tapas is this real focus and profound absorption in the spiritual life that causes us to no longer desire anything else. Tapas is the heat of spiritual inquiry and aspiration which causes us to discard all that is non-essential in life. Tripurabhairavi as Tapas is especially worshipped by those seeking knowledge or by those seeking control of their sexual energy (Brahmacharya). She gives control of the senses, the emotions and wandering thoughts. She helps us during fasting, vows of silence, meditation retreats, Pilgrimages, during the practice of celibacy, or any other concentrated spiritual discipline (Tapas) that we may be attempting. Whatever obstructions arise to our practice of Tapas we can call on Tripurabhairavi to help eliminate it.

By Dr Anand babu Adyatmika scientific research center


www.Shakthiyoga.com Dhasha maha vidya Tripurabhairavi is the fierce form of the Goddess and related to Chandi, the fiercest form of the Goddess, who is the main deity of the famous Devi Mahatmya, a great poem of seven hundred verses (also called Durga Saptasati or Chandi) which celebrates the destruction of the demons by her. Tripurabhairavi is the mightiest warrior, who with her power of Divine speech and spiritual fire eliminates all obstacles to the unfoldment of true awareness. As Chandi or the destroyer of evils and odds, she can be invoked for removing obstacles and to allow us to attain any of the four goals of life – enjoyment, wealth, recognition or liberation (kama, artha, dharma and moksha). Another important form of Durga is the ten-armed Mahishasura Mardini, the destroyer of Mahishasura, the demon who represents the vital passions (particularly sexual desires), which tie us to the outer world. She is also a form of Thripurabhairavi. Tripurabhairavi possesses the effulgence of a thousand rising suns. She has three eyes and wears a jeweled crown with the crest of the moon. Her lotus face is always full of smiles. She wears a red garment (generally made of silk), her breasts are smeared with blood, and she is adorned with a garland of severed human heads. She has four hands and carries a rosary and a book. She makes the gestures of knowledge and that for giving boons with other two hands.

www.Shakthiyoga.com Dhasha maha vidya Dhumavati is smoke-colored. Dhuuma = smoke; Vati = cover. The story goes that Parvati, the consort of Siva, was very hungry and asked for food from Siva to which Siva did not pay any attention. Repeated requests for nourishment went unheeded and therefore, Parvati swallowed Siva satisfying her hunger, exhaling smoke and at the same time widowing herself. Siva persuaded Dhumavati to regurgitate him from her stomach which she did. Since she exhaled smoke, Siva called her Dhumavati. Siva contains the world in him; Parvati swallows him; in effect She is on the top of the food chain; she is the Mother Goddess of the universe. (Note: Different sources use Parvati, Sati, Dhumavati interchangeably

Dhumavati (Sanskrit: धूमावती, Dhūmāvatī, literally "the smoky one") is one of the Mahavidyas, a group of ten Tantric goddesses. Dhumavati represents the fearsome aspect of Devi, the Hindu Divine Mother. She is often portrayed as an old, ugly widow, and is associated with things considered inauspicious and unattractive in Hinduism, such as the crow and the Chaturmas period. The goddess is often depicted on a horseless chariot or riding a crow, usually in a cremation ground. Dhumavati is said to manifest herself at the time of cosmic dissolution and is "the Void" that exists before creation and after dissolution. While Dhumavati is generally associated with only inauspicious qualities, her thousand-name hymn relates her positive aspects as well as her negative ones. She is often called tender-hearted and a bestower of boons. Dhumavati is described as a great teacher, one who reveals ultimate knowledge of the universe, which is beyond the illusory divisions, like auspicious and inauspicious. Her ugly form teaches the devotee to look beyond the superficial, to look inwards and seek the inner truths of life. Dhumavati is described as a giver of siddhis (supernatural powers), a rescuer from all troubles, and a granter of all desires and rewards, including ultimate knowledge and moksha (salvation). Her worship is also prescribed for those who wish to defeat their foes. Dhumavati's worship is considered ideal for unpaired members of society, such as bachelors, widows, and world renouncers as well as Tantrikas. In her Varanasi temple, however, she transcends her inauspiciousness and acquires the status of a local protective deity. There, even married couples worship her. Although she has very few dedicated temples, her worship by Tantric ritual continues in private in secluded places like cremation grounds and forests Usually she is depicted as an eternal widow or Shakti without Shiva. She is also called as Alakshmi. Goddess Dhumavathi gives her devotee to protect himself with black magic from anyone. She removes the malefic effects of Rahu Graha (Rahu graha dosham). Dhumavati is the eldest among the Goddesses, the Grandmother Spirit. She stands behind the other Goddesses as their ancestral guide. As the Grandmother Spirit she is the great teacher who bestows the ultimate lessons of birth and death. She is the knowledge that comes through hard experience, in which our immature and youthful desires and fantasies are put to rest. Dhuma means “smoke.” Dhumavati is “one who is composed of smoke.” Her nature is not illumination but obscuration. However, to obscure one thing is to reveal another. By obscuring or covering all that is known, Dhumavati reveals the depth of the unknown and the unmanifest. Dhumavati obscures what is evident in order to reveal the hidden and the profound. Dhumavati is portrayed as a widow. She is the feminine principle devoid of the masculine principle. She is Shakti without Shiva as a pure potential energy without any will to motivate it. Thus she contains within herself all potentials and shows the latent energies that dwell within us. To develop these latent energies we must first recognize them. This requires honoring Dhumavati.

www.Shakthiyoga.com Dhasha maha vidya Dhumavati shows the feminine principle of negation in all of its aspects. On an outer level she represents poverty, destitution, and suffering, the great misfortunes that we all fear in life. Hence she is said to be crooked, troublesome, and quarrelsome – a witch or a hag. Yet on an inner level this same negativity causes us to seek a greater fulfillment than can be achieved in the limited realms of the manifest creation. After all, only frustration in our outer life causes us to seek the inner reality. Dhumavati is whatever obstructs us in life, but what obstructs us in one area can release a new potential to grow in a different direction. Thus she is the good fortune that comes to us in the form of misfortune. Dhumavati represents the darkness on the face of the deep, the original chaos and obscurity which underlies creation. She is the darkness of primordial ignorance, Mulavidya, from which this world of illusion has arisen, and which it is seeking to transcend. Dhumavati represents the power of ignorance or that aspect of the creative force which causes the obscuration of the underlying light of consciousness. While Maya is the magic or illusion power of the Lord that makes the one reality appear as many, ignorance is a form of darkness which prevents us from seeing the underlying reality. Dhumavati is the void, wherein all forms have been dissolved and nothing can any longer be differentiated. Yet this void is not mere darkness. It is a self-illumining reality free of the ordinary duality of subject and object. Dhumavati represents the negative powers of life: disappointment, frustration, humiliation, defeat, loss, sorrow and loneliness. Such experiences overpower the ordinary mind, but to the yogi they are special doors of opportunity to contact the reality which transcends desire. Dhumavati is the elder form of Kali, Kali as an old woman. She represents time or the lifeforce dissociated from the process of manifestation. She is the timeless which never really enters into the process of time. Dhumavati is portrayed as a tall and thin old woman with disheveled and matted hair. She is fearful, unattractive and dark in complexion, with a wrinkled face, and her limbs are red. She has a harsh look in her eyes and she is missing a number of her teeth, which are otherwise large in size. Sometimes she is portrayed with fangs and her nose is long and snout-like. She is dressed in old or dirty clothes and her breasts hang down. She rides a chariot whose insignia is a crow. In her left hand she carries a winnowing basket and with her right makes the gesture of knowledge (Cinmudra). In other accounts she carries a skull-cup and sword in her two hands. She wears a garland of severed heads and is ever hungry and thirsty, always provoking quarrels and misunderstandings.

8.Bagalamukhi or Pitambari: "Om Hleem Sarva Dusthaanaam Vaacham Mukham Paadam stambhaya jihvyamkilaya buddhim vinaashaya Hleem Om Swaha" How did she gain her yellow complexion? During Krta Yuga, there was a devastating storm and the universe was at the brink of total destruction. Many living creatures died from the storm and turbulent waves jostled against Vishnu lying on the bed of Snake (Sesa). He went up to Haridra (Turmeric pond) and performed austerities to alleviate the problem. Yellow color of the turmeric is a favorite color of Lord Vishnu. Tripura Sundari, to whom he addressed his prayers, appeared in front of him in a blinding effulgence of a million suns. Suddenly an yellow-colored goddess (Pitambara Devi, Bagalamukhi) emerged from Tripura Sundari, took a dip in the pond and calmed down the storm. She of yellow complexion made an appearance to Vishnu by the Turmeric lake, she goes by the name of Pitambara Devi.

Expounding the great power of the Goddess Baglamukhi the text Mantra Maharnnav states -"The Mantra of the Goddess has the power of the divine weapon Brahmastra instilled in it and the Goddess simply strikes terror in and paralyses the enemies of her Sadhaks. Repetition of her Mantra is enough to stop even a tempest." "Bagalamukhi" is derived from "Bagala" (distortion of the original Sanskrit root "valgā") and "mukha", meaning "bridle" and "face", respectively. Thus, the name means one whose face has the power to capture or control. She thus represents the hypnotic power of the Goddess. Another interpretation translates her name as “crane faced”. Bagalamukhi has a golden complexion and her dress is yellow. She sits in a golden throne in the midst of an ocean of nectar full of yellow lotuses. A crescent moon adorns her head. Two descriptions of the goddess are found in various texts- The Dwi-Bhuja (two handed), and the Chaturbhuja (Four handed). The Dwi-Bhuja depiction is the more common, and is described as the Soumya or milder form. She holds a club in her right hand with which she beats a demon, while pulling his tongue out with her left hand. This image is sometimes interpreted as an exhibition of stambhana, the power to stun or paralyse an enemy into silence. This is one of the boons for which Bagalamukhi’s devotees worship her. Other Mahavidya goddesses are also said to represent similar powers useful for defeating enemies, to be invoked by their worshippers through various rituals.

She turns speech into silence, knowledge into ignorance, power into impotence, defeat into victory. She represents the knowledge whereby each thing must in time become its opposite.

What more can be said about this invincible Mahavidya who along with her 16 Shaktis (divine weapons) can subdue the most formidable of foes. Her greatness has been proven time and again over the ages. And not just great Siddhs like Matsyendranath, even rulers like Vikramaditya, Chandragupt and Aurangzeb regularly propitiated the Goddess for victory in life. The great western Tantra scholar Summerfield has gone so far as to state that the combined forces of the whole world cannot face the fury of the Goddess, who removes poverty, enemies, tensions with a single swipe of her sword. And I have myself seen several Sadhaks and disciples of Gurudev regain their lost positions and emerge victorious in seemingly lost battles of life through the power of Baglamukhi Mantra. It’s better to get Baglamukhi Diksha before starting this Sadhana. Complete celibacy should be observed during Sadhana days. One should wear yellow clothes and use yellow articles yellow flowers in the Sadhana. Offerings should include some sweet made from gram flour. any Tuesday. It must be done early in the morning.

Those who are suffering from court cases of legal cases can worship her for victory. She removes the malefic effects of Planet Mars or Kuja graha dosham. Bagalamukhi is a Goddess of speech, and as such is related to Tara and regarded as a form of her. When sound becomes manifest as light, Tara becomes Bagalamukhi. When the brilliant light of speech comes forth, then Tara gains the effulgence of Bagalamukhi and cause all things to become still. Bagalamukhi is thus the stunning radiance that comes forth from Divine Word and puts human or egoistic word to rest. Bagalamukhi gives a power of speech that leaves others silent and grasping for words. She gives the decisive statement, the irrefutable conclusions, the pronouncement of ultimate truth. Hence she is propitiated for success in discussions and debates. No one can defeat her because she posseses the truth, the Self-nature. The weapon that puts an end to all conflict and confusion is the weapon of spiritual knowledge, the weapon of Brahman (Brahmastra). The highest form of the Brahmastra is the question “Who am I?” Or “What is the Self?”

Her color is yellow. She is clad in yellow clothing and is adorned with yellow ornaments and yellow flowers (particularly the champak flower). With her left hand she catches hold of her opponent’s tongue and with her right hand she strikes him on the head with her mace. She sits upon a golden throne surrounded by red lotuses. By some accounts she wears the crescent moon as a jewel on her head. 9.Matangi:

"Om Hreem Aim Shreem Namo Bhagavati Ucchisthachandali Sri Matangeswari Sarvagyanavashamkari Swaha"

Matangi (Maatamgi) is one of the ten Mahavidyas who are various manifestations of goddess Parvati or Kali. Matangaka was the name of the chief of Chandalas. Chandalas are one of the lowest among the castes, according to lore. In a game of impersonation, "fool me, fool me not," Siva impersonated a traveling jewelry salesman, sold some ornaments to His Consort Parvati while she was visiting with her father, and suggested that she could pay him by sexual favors. Parvati without missing a beat said, "Yes, but not now." She had the intuitive divine vision that the traveling salesman was her husband in disguise. Siva went on his way and sat down on the banks of Manas Lake for meditation and worship. Parvati assumed the appearance of a nubile outcaste (Chandala) girl with a shapely body accentuated by a red dress, and beautiful and beguiling eyes, and danced in front of Lord Siva jiggling her moon-like breasts. Siva's ravenous eyes imbibed Parvati's beauty in motion and He gently asked her who she was. Parvati in the sweetness of youthful voice replied with the utmost bashfulness, "Swami, I am a Chandala girl. I came to do penance." Siva is the Yogi of Yogins. Who else is more fit to teach penance? Siva gently took her lotus hand and pressed it tenderly against his lotus petal-soft lips. Then he proceeded to make love to the captive but willing Parvati, whose identity was unknown to Siva. While they were in the conjugate embrace in Siva's mind and conjugal embrace in Parvati's mind, Parvati morphed Siva into a Chandala (in embrace with a Chandalini). Siva in a flash realized that Matangi (Chandala girl) was no other than his dear wife. Parvati reaped her sweet vengeance, laid open utter lowness of her action and sexual submission, and begged Siva to accept her in his heart as "Ucchista Chandalini." Ucchista = rejected (once used commodity), remnants of food in the mouth after eating,

By Dr Anand babu Adyatmika scientific research center


www.Shakthiyoga.com Dhasha maha vidya that are spit out of the mouth; food sticking in the mouth and hands after eating, therefore impure; remainder of sacrificial food; left over crumbs. This is the Divine Grace of Parvati; Siva does all the proscribed acts and the victim begs for forgiveness or acceptance. Explanation follows later. Siva accepted to honor her supplication. She is thus called Matangi (a woman from a degraded mountain tribe or hunter-gatherers, who became Sudras from neglecting all prescribed rites; mlecchas.) Parvati and Siva in their role as Chandala and Chadalini (low mixed castes worse than dogs according to definition)

In Hinduism, Matangi is the aspect of Devi (in other words, the Mahavidya) who is the patron of inner thought and speech. She guides her devotee to the uncaused primordial sound. Matangi has three eyes and either a dark emerald or dark blue complexion. The Goddess Meenakshi at Madurai is worshipped as Matangi. Matangi is considered the daughter of Rishi Matanga. She emerges as an aspect of Sati, spouse of Siva and the daughter of Daksa, in the mythic cylcle known as the Daksayajna. Siva attempts to prevent Sati from attending a sacrifice (yajna) Her father is conducting and to which neither He or She was invited. Daksa was forced to accept Her marriage to Siva but later rejected Siva and the marriage. Enraged by Siva's interference, She first shows Herself as Kali and then manifests nine other forms. Traditionally appearing in the cycle after Bhagalamukhi, Matangi is associated with the full moon, the 'night of intoxication'. She is depicted as dark (blue-black or dark emerald), very beautiful, sensuous with very large breasts, slender waist and long, flowing hair. She holds a goad, a noose, a sword and a sarod. These items may vary somewhat in different traditions. She grants control over all forms of speech, especially poetry, and music. Therefore, She is associated with the throat chakra. As the daughter of the Rishi Matanga (lit. 'elephant') She is associated with vast and expansive knowledge. She is further closely associated with Sarasvati. Matangi is said to be born as a chandala or 'outcaste' (lit. outside the Hindu caste system). Her father was a chandala who was raised as a Brahman. This likely suggests Her origin as a tribal or non-Vedic deity.. Her mantra includes seed syllables for the manifestation of the Great Goddess in the world, attainment of all desires, protection by the sacred fire (destroys negativity and provides grace), sound that disrupts threatening forces and liberation from the world. Though depicted as one of the ten Mahavidyas, like all of the ten She is a complete Goddess in and of herself. Her worship may include the other nine manifestations or not, depending upon the inclinations of the adherent. Goddess Matangi Mata is also known as Tantrik Saraswati who fulfills every desire of her devotees and blesses them with prosperity. Those who are suffering from stuttering and from domestic affairs or family problems can worship her for peaceful life. Lord Shiva is also known as Matang. Mata literally means “a thought” or “an opinion.” Rajamatangi is thus the Goddess power which has entered into thought or the mind. She is the word as the embodiment of thought. She also relates to the ear and our ability to listen, which is the origin of true understanding that forms powerful thoughts. Rajamatangi bestows knowledge, talent and expertise. She is the Goddess of the spoken word and of any outward articulation of inner knowledge, including all forms of art, music and dance. Rajamatangi relates to Sarasvati, the Goddess of wisdom and the consort of Lord Brahma, the creator of the universe. Rajamatangi, like Sarasvati, plays a Veena and rules over music or audible sound in general, not just the spoken word. She is the manifest form of song. Like Sarasvati she is symbolized by the rain cloud and by the thunder, as well as by the rivers

www.Shakthiyoga.com Dhasha maha vidya pouring into the sea. She is the vibratory sound, Nada, that flows in the subtle channels, Nadis, down through our entire body and mind. However, Rajamatangi and Sarasvati are a little different. Rajamatangi is the form of Sarasvati directed towards inner knowledge. She is her dark, mystic, ecstatic or wild form. Sarasvati is often a Goddess of only ordinary learning, art and culture. Rajamatangi rules over the extraordinary, which takes us beyond the bounds of the conventional. Rajamatangi is an outcast or artist who goes against the norms of society, while Sarasvati represents the knowledge and virtue of the Brahmin or learned class which never departs from propriety. Rajamatangi is that portion of Sarasvati which is allied with the transforming energy of Kali. The guru (spiritual teacher) instructs us through the spoken word. Hence his vehicle among the Goddess is Rajamatangi. Rajamatangi represents the teachings of the guru and the tradition. She represents the continuity of spiritual instruction in the world. By honoring her we also honor the guru. Those seeking to teach others, particularly to communicate to the masses of people, should seek the grace of Rajamatangi. According to the Upanishads the essence of the human being is speech. What we express through speech is the final product of all that we take into ourselves in life. This ultimate residue and representation of who we are through speech is Rajamatangi. This, however, is not ordinary or casual speech, but the deepest expression of our hearts. The Divine Word has power, feeling, and passion, which is not mere human emotion but Divine bliss. The Divine Word is not merely a theoretical or practical statement but an effusion of energy and delight. This joy is another aspect of Rajamatangi. Rajamatangi is thus a wild, playful and ecstatic Goddess. Rajamatangi represents the ministerial power of the Goddess. She is the counselor to Rajarajeshvari or Tripura Sundari, the Supreme Queen of the universe. As such she is called Mantrini and has power over all mantras, particularly in their vocalization and articulation. She gives us the ability to communicate with all the other Gods and Goddesses through the power of the mantra. In fact she rules over all forms of knowledge, counseling and teaching. Those seeking proficiency in these areas should honor Rajamatangi. Rajamatangi is dark emerald green in color, the color of deep knowledge and profound lifeenergy, which is also the color of the planet Mercury that governs intelligence. She plays the Veena, a stringed instrument like a sitar, which shows her musical and vibratory power. She is beautiful and carries various weapons with which to fascinate and subdue us. In this regard she has the same ornaments and weapons as Sundari. She is often said to have a parrot in her hands, which represents the powers of speech as inherent in nature. She sits on a throne made of gems.

Among these four wealth comes foremost, for without it life becomes barren like a desert. And the deity of wealth is the Mahavidya Kamala, who frees her Sadhak of debts, poverty, tensions, problems, sins, diseases and danger of untimely death. And not just this she bestows upon him sharp intellect, charming personality, wealth, health, a beautiful spouse, children, property, vehicles, fame and respect. Every person whether old or young wishes to be rich; and the best and easiest way to prosperity is the Sadhana of Kamala. This Sadhana is unfailing, so much so that even a poor, unfortunate, disease-ridden wretch can get rid of all his misfortunes and climb to the highest echelons of material success through this wonderful ritual. It’s not just believed, it is the experience of so many Sadhaks that if accomplished with full devotion this Sadhana cannot fail to produce its effects. get up early in the morning, take a bath and get into red clothes.

Goddess Kamala is also known Tantrik Lakshmi. She blesses her devotees with all types of wealth and removes the malefic effects of Planet Venus (Shukra Graha dosham). Kamalatmika is one whose nature is of the lotus. She is sometimes just called Kamala, which is one of the many Sanskrit names for lotus. The lotus Goddess is Lakshmi, the consort of Lord Vishnu, the preserver of the universe. Lakshmi arises out of a lotus from the cosmic ocean. Kamala is Lakshmi among the Ten Wisdom Goddesses. Lakshmi is the Goddess of wealth, beauty, fertility, love, and devotion, like Roman Venus and Greek Aphrodite, who, like Lakshmi, is born from the ocean, but on a sea shell rather than a lotus. Lakshmi is the great Mother in her role of fulfilling all desires. She represents the water of fulfillment, the flowering of Divine grace and love.

By Dr Anand babu Adyatmika scientific research center


www.Shakthiyoga.com Dhasha maha vidya Kamala is similar to Sundari in that both rule over love, beauty and bliss. Sundari, however, rules over the subtle form of bliss born of perception of the Self. Kamala governs the outer form of beauty, not merely as pleasure but as the unfolding of the Divine nature into the realms of action and creation. Kamala causes us to create forms in the outer world, while Sundari allows us to withdraw the outer world into our own consciousness. Kamala thus relates to the Earth, which contains the maximum manifestation of the Divine in the material word. The Earth Goddess, Bhu Devi, is considered to be the second consort of Lord Vishnu. Kamala nourishes and supports whatever we truly aspire to do. She aids in all projects and ever seeks to promote their fulfillment, allowing layer upon layer of Divine grace to come forth in various degrees of wonder. She can be propitiated both for ordinary worldly goals and for spiritual realization. But the ordinary goals we seek through her – wealth, progeny, or success – should be part of seeking Divine fulfillment in life, an unfoldment of our souls desires through an organic process of evolution, not a mere satisfying of neurotic wants. Kamala is the form of the Goddess most worshipped by people in this world, as we are mainly cognizant of outer beauty and abundance. Most of us are engaged in the pursuit of pleasure, fortune, talent, fame and so on, which are nothing but superficial or limited aspects of the power of Lakshmi. Since we naturally pursue Lakshmi, we might as well pursue her highest form. The most beautiful thing in life is devotion to the Divine. Lakshmi also gives this. When we have that spirit of devotion for the Divine presence everywhere we find incomparable beauty and wealth in everything. Kamala is a little different from Lakshmi. Kamala is the aspect of Lakshmi that is part of the Wisdom Goddesses. She is the form of Lakshmi which relates specifically to the practice of Yoga. Hence she is also a form of Kali. Kali or the beauty of the void is also the basis of Kamala or the beauty of life. The spiritual lotus, which is the basis of the universal energy, blooms in the void. It comes forth in the space of pure consciousness. Hence to allow it to come forth we must first make ourselves empty and clear. Only the non-attachment of Kali enables us to enjoy life and find our fulfillment through Kamala. Kamala as the tenth and last of the Wisdom Goddesses shows the full unfoldment of the power of the Goddess into the material sphere. Kamala is the beginning and the end of our worship of the Goddess. We first approach the Divine seeking help in achieving ordinary human wishes, like health, prosperity, and a happy family. We complete our understanding of the Divine by seeing its presence even in the ordinary things of human life, in the forms of nature and the Earth, discerning a Divine urge toward union hidden even in worldly desires.

www.Shakthiyoga.com Dhasha maha vidya erotic of Her three aspects, as the 1,000 names show. Bala is an adolescent woman, Tripurasundari a mother, and Tripurabhairavi a woman in whom menstruation has ceased. Bala's root mantra is aim klim sauh and variations of this mantra are used in her daily ritual. Many tantrik devatas have manuals structured along similar lines. The devata is first visualised as residing in the heart, then later drawn out through the breath and "placed" in the yantra. On installation or invocation, various ritual accessories are offered, and the 1,000 adjectives (names) of the particular deity recited. The Devi is then drawn 'back' into one's heart, and the ritual concludes with various elements "cleaning up" the area of worship. The five limbs of a ritual panchanga are Patala, Paddhati, Kavacha (Armour), 1,000 Names, and Stotra. The first gives the unfolding of the mantra, usually in coded form. It also describes the meditation image and the yantra of the devata, as well as various optional rites. The second limb describes the ritual worship, including worship of the avarana or attendants of the devata, which are really aspects of the god or goddess. The kavacha is an "armour" used to ward off evil and which may either be recited or written and then worn on the body. The fourth limb consists of the 1,000 names, of which there are very many sets in the tantrik literature. The fifth, the Stotra, is the hymn of praise of the ishtadevata, the tutelary devata of a tantrik sadhaka. This particular manual comes from the Devirahasya, a large work which contains many other panchangas relating to different aspects of Shiva and Shakti.

Bala Patala Seated on Kailasa Summit is Bhagavan, spouse of Uma, the God with a crescent Moon as His diadem, whose eyes are Sun, Moon and Fire, wearing an elephant skin, mighty, worshipped by the Gods, bowed to by hosts of Gandharvas, mighty Yakshas, and by gods and demons. Having recited mantra, and having read sacred texts, rising up and bowing, Bhairavi questions the Lord. Shri Bhairavi - Lord God, Ocean of Compassion, who reveals all Agamas, by Your grace I have heard of all the Vidyas, O Sureshvara. Now I would like to hear of Bala Tripurasundari. If this can be spoken of, declare the Vidya, O God Maheshvara. Shri Bhairava -- Listen Devi, I speak of the five Limbed Manual (Panchanga) desired by sadhakas, (which consists of) Patala, Paddhati, Armour, 1,000 Names and King of Hymns. O Mahadevi, listen one-pointedly. Parameshani, Shri Bala is the Goddess bestowing both enjoyment and Liberation. O Mahadevi, one may give away power, dominion, house and wealth. All these may be given away, but one should never give away this thing which is the best of all. In the Kali Yuga there is no other Vidya resembling this Vidya. It is said that Shri Bala Tripura gives siddhi quickly. It should be passed on to peaceful disciples, and to those devoted to their Guru. One should not give this Vidya to the undevoted, O Parameshvari.

www.Shakthiyoga.com Dhasha maha vidya I will speak of the unfolding of the mantra, yantra, prastara, meditation, and the rites of the Devi, O Maheshvari. First, Deveshi, listen to the unfolding of the Mantra which bestows all fruit. It should be carefully concealed, whoever knows it becomes successful (Siddha). One should place "Shakti" (Sauh) at the end of 'Vagbhava" (Aim) and "Kamaraja" (Klim), ending this with Namah. O Devi, this is the eight lettered Mantra of Bala. (There are) no obstacles, or impurity or restrictions attached to it, it causes one to become a Siddha, O Mahadevi, and is the King of Mantras in the Kali Yuga. Dakshinamurti is the Seer, Pankti is the Metre for pronunciation, the Goddess if Tripura-Bala, "Aim" is the Seed, "Sauh" the Shakti. "Klim" is the linchpin. Its application is towards Dharma, Artha, Kama and Moksha. One should do (six fold) Nyasa on the head, on the mouth, in the heart, on the feet, on the navel lotus and in all the limbs, O Devi. One should do Nyasa according to the rules doing Seer, Hand and Limb nyasa, using the bijas of the mantra, O Maheshvari. Now I speak of Her meditation, advantageous for all sadhakas: I meditate on Bala, clothed in red, with a digit of the Moon as Her ornament, effulgent as the rising sun, with three eyes, holding a book and a rosary, showing the gestures of removing fear and giving, seated on a red lotus. Having meditated in this way one should repeat the mantra which gives success. A pure sadhaka should prepare (the mantra by reciting it) 300,000 times. Now I speak of the unfolding of the Yantra of Mahadevi, the Giver of both Enjoyment and Liberation, which is very hard to get to know of for any sadhaka. Bindu, triangle, eight triangles, eight petals, adorned with three circles and enclosed in an earthsquare. This circle of Bala (and Her attendants) is the Destroyer of Pain, O MountainBorn One! One should worship the Shaktis of the pedestal when inscribing the Yantra. The pedestal Shaktis are Will (Iccha), Knowledge (Jnana), Action (Kriya), Lotus-Girl (Kamini), Giver of Sexuality (Kamadayini), Sexual Pleasure (Rati), Loving the Bliss of Sexual Pleasure (Ratipriyananda), and Mind-Born (Manonmani) lastly. One should place these Shaktis round the pedestal using the mantra "Vyoma Parvata Tartiya Sadashiva Mahapadam Pitha Padmasanaya Namah". This is the pedestal Mantra. Having put, in order, these 16 syllables around the image (Yantra) one should recite the root mantra. One should invoke Devi and worship Her with the ritual accessories according to the rules. Having invoked the desired Devi in the centre of the yoni, one should worship in the triangle, in a similar way Sexual Love (Rati) on the left, Pleasure (Priti) on the right, and Mind-Born (Manobhava) at the apex. One should worship the six Limbs inside the yoni (i.e. central triangle) starting from the South East. Outside the central yoni one should worship, from the East, in a clockwise direction, the Arrow-Devis. In the eight yoni-triangles one should worship the eight Shaktis called Beautiful

In the filaments of the lotus one should worship Brahmi and so forth, and in the petals themselves the (eight) Bhairavas. One should also worship, in the petal tips, from the East in a clockwise direction, the Sacred Sites called Kamarupa, Malaya, Kaulagiri, Cauhara, Kulantaka, Jalandhara and Oddyana -- the eighth being Devikuta. In the bhupura one should worship in the cardinal directions Heruka, Tripurantaka, Vetala, Agnijihva, Kalantaka, Kapalini, Ekapada, Bhimarupa, Mala and Hatakeshvara. (Also) in the directions one should worship Indra and the others with the (various) weapons. Outside of this, in the directions, one should worship Vatuka, the Yoginis, Kshetrapala and Ganesha. In the intermediate points one should worship the (eight) Vasus, the Sun, and Shiva. One should worship all the elements and then the weapons. First of all one should meditate on Bala in the embrace of Kameshvara in the centre; A Kaula should worship using the five makaras according to the rules of Kaulachara. The sadhaka skilled in the mantra should worship Mahadevi in the bindu (of the yantra) with scent, unhusked rice, flowers, incense, flame and liquid oblation. This is called Layanga. Listen to the rituals, O Parvati. Whosoever skilled in mantra who does this gains a share of success swiftly, it is certain. The (eight rites) are Paralysing, Deluding, Killing, Attracting, Subjugating, Driving Away, Peace Making and Healing. This sadhana is the Quintessence, invisible, Dear One. One should not give this to those undevoted to Devi, and should keep it concealed and secret from pashus. (1) On the first day of the Waxing Moon, Devi, having bathed and done the daily rite, one should go to a deserted place at midday. There one should do sacrifice by a 10th part using ghee, curd and so forth. One should do oblation to the Goddess, then immediately one is free to paralyse, this is certain. (2) At dusk, in the cremation ground, one should recite (the mantra) on a seat made of owl feathers. One should do much sacrifice and by a tenth part of this give ghee, wine, grain, shoots and lotus seeds. Then one may delude the world. (3) Having gone in the morning or at night to the place of Ghosts and Elementals (Cremation Ground), the mighty Hero should recite the Vidya of 16 letters in front of a cremation pyre. The mantrin should do much sacrifice of ghee, fragrant gums and hairs of chandalas in the burning funeral pyre. (In this way) one kills an enemy. (4) On an eighth day of the Bright Fortnight the sadhaka should recite (the mantra) in secret. Having recited a myriad times using the root Vidya, and having meditated, O Charming One, one should do sacrifice of a 10th part giving ghee, lac, flowers, menstrual blood, wheat and bamboo shoots. (Then) one may attract women.

Doing sacrifice in this way, O Lady of Heroes, one is able to make people slaves. (6) On the fourth Lunar Day of a Dark Fortnight one should recite the mantra at the arising of the Moon, Dearest. On a riverbank, seated in Shirsha Asana, the Hero should recite the mantra many times. One should sacrifice a 10th part of this, giving ghee, blue lotus, cloves, black pepper and tamarind. Then one may cause an enemy to flee. (7) On a fifth night, O Deveshi, one should recite the mantra a myriad times. One should sacrifice a 10th of that and should offer ghee, fish, sugar cane and camphor - thus one may calm down great disputes, wars and adversities. (8) On a great eighth day (of the dark Lunar fortnight) a person1 having bathed, should do sadhana on the best of pedestals. The hero should recite (the mantra) 10,000 times and should sacrifice a 10th part of that, giving ghee, camphor, grapes, many betel leaves, goat flesh and blood. Then one causes healing to occur. This thing which is secret is the form of all, my very Self, O Deveshi, Secret. One should conceal it in the Kali Yuga. On Sundays etc. one should recite the mantra 10,000 times. Then one becomes Siddha, there should be no doubt about this! This celestial chapter is revealed because of Your love. Hide it! It should be concealed, hide it as You would conceal Your own yoni.

Shri Bala Paddhati Now I will declare the Paddhati in its spoken form - the essence of Shri Bala Tripureshvari, the Giver of Happiness. Having done morning acts those who are devoted should worship Devi. This puja is fruitless for those impure at the Three (Twilights). Extending from the base of the spine to the top of the head, like a lotus stem, a brilliant, white, slender thread, one should meditate on Devi, Giver of Subjugation, Great Good Fortune and Eloquence; as surrounded by a swarm of black bees; with braided hair garlanded with flowers; with a face marked with a jewel as her forehead mark; her mouth sweetly smiling, wearing a beautiful diadem; her head adorned with pearls and diamonds; with a slender crescent Moon as crest gem; her three bright eyes effulgent as a swarm of sapphire bees; with jewelled coiled earrings, the chief of which is as bright as the Sun: ornamented with shining pearls and gems of dazzling appearance; around her throat a necklace like a line of bees, beautiful and bedazzling, surpassing nectar in its beauty; adorned with beautiful and resplendent garments like the white water of the Ganga in flood; beautiful, sinuous graceful limbs, scented and sweet like creeping vines; covered in gold and by other precious metals, and by glistening jewels, glittering and bright; her beautiful feet and toes like red lotuses with their petals; as bright as the circle of the starry realm (Nakshatras); adorned with pearllike blossoms; with her lower left hand holding a book and her upper right hand dispelling the fears of sadhakas; in her two right hands holding a rosary and bestowing boons; She herself being of the dazzling whiteness of snow, milk or the Moon; gracious and charming.

Armour of Shri Bala Tripurasundari Shri Bhairavi said - Devadeva, Mahadeva, expander of devotees who please You, the Armour of Devi is hidden. Speak of this to Me!

By Dr Anand babu Adyatmika scientific research center


www.Shakthiyoga.com Dhasha maha vidya Shri Bhairava -- Listen Devi, I speak of the Armour difficult to get even for gods. One should never reveal this high secret, which gives the wished for siddhi to a sadhaka. The Seer of the Armour is Dakshinamurti. Pankti is the Metre. The Devi is Tripurasundari. Its application in puja is the four aims of Mankind. She wears a pearl diadem, coiled earrings, armlets, a necklace of gems; pearl finger rings; effulgent bracelets and other jewels; a golden hip girdle, glittering anklets; her navel is adorned with a ruby, and she has a bracelet of shells, with a Kala of the Moon on her forehead. She holds a noose, a goad, a book and a rosary in her upper hands and the other hands. May the Vagbhava Aim protect my head, and the Kamaraja Klim my heart! May the Shakti Bija Sauh protect me in my navel, genitals and feet! May Aim Klim Sauh protect my face, and Bala shield me in my siddhi! May Ha Sa Ka La Hrim Sauh Bhairavi shield my throat, and may Sa Ka La Sundari shield me in the region of the navel! May Mahatripurasundari shield my brow, and the point between my eyes! Subhaga protect my forehead! Bhaga shield my throat! Bhagodevi protect my heart! Bhagasarpini, shield my belly! Bhagamala, shield my navel! Manobhava, protect my penis! May the auspicious Lady, the Queen of Queens, the Mahadevi, shield my anus! Mother of the Cosmos (Jagad Ambika), form of Consciousness, protect my feet! Narayani, protect me at night! Shubhankari shield me in all my actions! May Brahmani protect me in the East, and Vaishnavi in the South! May Varahi protect me in the West, and Maheshvari in the North! May Kaumari protect me in the South East, and Mahalakshmi in the South West! May Chamunda protect me in the North West, and Indrani in the North East! Mahamaya, protect me in Water! Sarvamangala, shield me in Earth! Varada, protect me in Aether! Bhuvaneshvari, protect me everywhere! This Armour is called "Names of the Goddess" and is hard to obtain! The pure person with concentrated mind should arise and recite it at dawn. Whoever does it knows no fear or disease. Nor is he afraid of death or anxious about sin. He is never poor, nor is he vanquished by death. He dwells in the realm of Shiva, O Devi. I say to You that this is most certainly true. O Auspicious One, whosoever should recite this Armour having not been initiated into Shri Vidya gains no fruit, but is struck by lightning.

The 1,000 Names of Bala Shri Devi - Shri Natha Shankara, Bliss-Maker, speak! O Lord God, how may one obtain the yoga-power of full devotion, O Ocean of Wine 1 If You have compassion for Me Shambhu, reveal that which is well-hidden! Shri Bhairava -- By devotion to Shakti one comes to know the entire vermilion ocean of Bliss, the hidden essence of Bala. Dear One, I will speak to You of Her 1,000 Names. One should

O Parvati, of all sets of 1,000 names in the tantras, this is the quintessence. Dearest, this hymn may be recited at all times, at night, and during puja in the morning. When Bala, the Giver of All Dominion and Happiness, is pleased, She bestows jewels of various kinds, wealth, and (answers all) requests. O Parameshvari, She bestows whatever desires a person has, and sons and daughters are born if one wishes it. Enemies are destroyed, ailments are alleviated. If in a difficult situation, things are eased, medicines are bestowed on one. This bestows beautiful palaces, pictures, and all dominion. For a person, agriculture bestows rich harvests, and the heavenly cow seems to dwell for him on earth. His country prospers, and his state is not afflicted with calamities. Great elephants shower him with streams of nectar. He dwells happily in palaces, surrounded by gems and horses. His offspring become rulers, free from strife, ministers of the king. Those known to him please him, he becomes noble and very beautiful, wealthy, always in a good position, alluring. Spoken speech and verse musically flow from him, like the Ganges in flood. He becomes able to expound the various meanings of various verses, becoming skilled in the entire essence of all, successful, his speech like gracious blossoms. Shastras unknown to him are constantly revealed. Those with faults who would attack him become fearful, they sing adoringly of him, like slaves before a king. Swords and missiles hurt not his limbs. Women of all classes become completely subjugated by him. Poison becomes like wine-nectar for him. The host of opponents are paralysed, and his enemy crushed, if the knower of Yoga should continually practise for a period of nine nights. If he should recite day and night, without idleness, he becomes peaceful of mind, and all created things in all the worlds become subject to him, there is no doubt of it. If one should perform the yoga continually for six months, one becomes the (very essence of) Yogamaya, without question. Whosoever reads this ultimate hymn whilst meditating on Kamakala has women in a state of subjugation seeking him, intoxicated with sexual desire, beautiful, mad with lust, with beautiful enraptured eyes. He knows satiety of love through feminine desire, in this act of subjugation.

www.Shakthiyoga.com Dhasha maha vidya On a fortunate day, having written the yantra of Devi on birch-bark, colouring it with rochana, kumkum, lac, red dye, or sunflowers, making the womb of the yantra (=triangle) of gold or silver hue, very alluring, one should awaken Bala, having worshipped and established Her. If one should then carry this on one 's head, throat, shoulder, or near to one's heart or navel, one becomes wealthy, victorious, and gains love. There is nothing greater than this in the three Worlds for protection, most certainly. Planets, diseases, and so forth, anxieties, are all banished, one gains happiness and health, it is the cause of strength and virility, and destroys cruel elements and enemies. It gives sons, daughters, increases a host of qualities, gives wealth and grain. In whichever city this best of sadhaka dwells, whilst bearing Her, wealth is gained. In whichever dwelling this stotra is placed and written out, O Varanana, there I - Shiva, Hari and Kamala always dwell, and it is as if all the sacred waters spring from this place. If the best of sadhakas should recite and read this devotedly he knows Knowledge, Bliss and Unity. O Deveshi, by reading this hymn, one gains the fruit of worship. One should recite it very carefully having established oneself in the six fold Nyasa. In the best of all tantras is the puja of Bala. There the 16 letters are the greatest thing. This, the best of all hymns, is found there. O Sundari, one should never give this to those who are not pupils, the impure, fraudulent, indolent, who make no efforts, the undevoted, those deficient of Vishnu bhakti, the unstable or the stupid. It should be given to those who are devoted, as it is the cause of liberation, and augments devotion. O Varanana, whilst engaging in sexual intercourse (Latayoga), one may read the hymn. One becomes like the Aeon Creeper (Kalpalata), and the fruit of one's desires are achieved. If a sadhaka should steadily recite this whilst in Latayoga, offering blossoms to the gazelleeyed (partner), he is blessed with the results of 100 sacrifices (Yajna). O Deveshi, Brahma and the other (devatas) worship his feet, he himself becomes like Shiva -- that discriminating person who is attached to devotion to Bala. He becomes one with the Bliss of the Absolute, Jyotsna, in the state of Sadashiva.

Shri Bala Stotra Shri Bhairava said - Parvati, now I speak of the Hymn of Devi Bala. Having heard the secret Panchanga, one should always conceal it. (Dakshinamurti is the Rishi of this stotra-mantra of Shri Bala Tripurasundari; Pankti is the Metre; Shri Bala Tripurasundari is the Devata; Aim is the Bija; Sauh is the Shakti; Klim is the Kilaka; its application when reciting it is pleasing Shri Bala.

Thus one should establish in one's heart the eternally beautiful form Bala. One should recite Aim, O Tripura Bhavani. One becomes greater than God or Guru, and has dominion and so forth of the partner of the Lord of the Mountains. Within the course of one day, one should recite the King of Your Mantras known as the triple syllable Kamaraja, that of Kameshvari. The person initiated in Kula should worship the earthly and most beautiful and alluring courtesan. One should recite Sauh, O Tripura, Mother of the three Worlds! You Who Manifest, Play, and bring all to Completion, the core of the Absolute (Brahmapada), Self-Existent! One should worship in the rectangle, the circles, the eight petalled lotus, within the city of the lotus of six petals, worshipping Bala in the Bindu Pitha, in order to become greater than Shiva. Whosoever should recite this hymn of Tripura, which consists of mantra, at night or at dawn, becomes garlanded (praised) on earth, and in three days becomes equal to Shukra, Saura and Lakshmi. Thus this stotra of Devi Bala, consisting of ultimate Mantra, is revealed. One should not give it to the undevoted, and should conceal it as if it were Your own yoni

Lalita Tripurasundari, the Red Goddess Dear One, Tripura is the ultimate, primordial Shakti, the light of manifestation. She, the pile of letters of the alphabet, gave birth to the three worlds. At dissolution, She is the abode of all tattvas, still remaining Herself - Vamakeshvaratantra What is Shri Vidya and what relationship does it have to the goddess Lalita and to her yantra, the Shri Yantra? Vidya means knowledge, specifically female knowledge, or the goddess, and

www.Shakthiyoga.com Dhasha maha vidya in this context relates to her aspect called Shri, Lalita or Tripurasundari whose magical diagram is called the Shri Yantra. She is a red flower, so her diagram is a flower too. The tantrik tradition views its symbols as having a gross aspect, a subtle aspect, and a supreme aspect. In terms of Lalita, the gross form is the image of the goddess with her four arms and so forth, the subtle form is as yantra, and the supreme form is her mantra, all three being the goddess in different aspects. Behind the sometimes colourful symbolism is deep wisdom coupled with practical methods for realising oneself.

Lalita loves puja. This term is usually translated as worship. However, this is misleading, as it introduces a duality into a process intended to bring the practitioner (sadhaka or sadhvika) to a non-dual position. There can be various pujas including daily rites, those performed at the four twilights, rites done for specific objects, optional rites done on festival days, or on otherwise auspicious days such as lunar eclipses or the entrance of the sun into a sidereal constellation, rites in assemblies or groups, and rites accomplished with a partner. Subhagodaya, on this site, is a translation which gives the full puja of Tripurasundari or Lalita. Lalita means She Who Plays. All creation, manifestation and dissolution is considered to be a play of Devi or the goddess. Mahatripurasundari is her name as transcendent beauty of the three cities, a description of the goddess as conqueror of the three cities of the demons, or as the triple city (Tripura), but really a metaphor for a human being.

By Dr Anand babu Adyatmika scientific research center


www.Shakthiyoga.com Dhasha maha vidya What then is a yantra? The word is usually translated as a machine, but in the special sense of the tantrik tradition refers to the Devi in her linear or geometrical form. Yantras, by the way, are always used flat. They may be two-dimensional or three-dimensional. Every aspect of Devi has her own mantra and yantra. The yantra of Devi Lalita is Shri Yantra. The divinity of the yantra always occupies the centre or apex. The different parts or petals and lines of the yantra are usually arranged in concentric circles (mandalas) and contain rays or sub-limbs of devi. The Shri Yantra has nine of these mandals, each filled with various aspects of the Devi. In Shri Yantra there are 111 aspects. The Shri Yantra is said to be a geometric form of the human body, which implies that goddess as Macrocosm is one with human being as Microcosm.

Formation of the Shri Yantra The creation of the Shri Yantra is described in the Yogini Hridaya (Heart of the Yogini Tantra), which still does not exist in an English translation, as far as we are aware. This is said to be the second part of the Vamakeshvara Tantra. "From the fivefold Shakti comes creation and from the fourfold Fire dissolution. The sexual union of five Shaktis and four Fires causes the chakra to evolve. O Sinless One! I speak to you of the origin of the chakra. "When she, the ultimate Shakti, of her own will (svecchaya) assumed the form of the universe, then the creation of the chakra revealed itself as a pulsating essence. From the void-like vowels with the visarga (:) emerged the bindu, quivering and fully conscious. From this pulsating stream of supreme light emanated the ocean of the cosmos, the very self of the three mothers. "The baindava of the chakra has a triple form, dharma, adharma and atma, and matri, meya and prama. The chakra of nine yonis is the great mass of consciousness bliss and is the ninefold chakra and the nine divisions of the mantra. "The baindava is placed on a dense flowery mass and is the Chitkala. Similarly, the ambika form of eight lines is the circle of the vowels. The nine triangles quiver forth the effulgent form of 10 lines. The Shakti, together with her surrounding nine blossomed forth the 10 trikonas. The second quivering form of 10 lines has Krodhisha as first of the 10. These four chakras, of the nature of light, create the 14-fold form, the essence of perception." -- Yogini Hridaya, I 6-16. At the very heart of the bindu or centre of the Shri Yantra is that which caused it to emanate. This is Kamakala, consisting of the three bindus or potentials. One is red, one is white, and one is mixed. The red bindu is ova, the white bindu semen, and the mixed bindu the union of Shiva-Shakti, the individual as potential Shri Cakra. Father and Mother are represented in Shri Vidya by two limbs or aspects of Lalita known as Varahi and Kurukulla. The semen of Varahi, the father-form, gives four alchemical dhatus to the child. The ova of Kurukulla, the mother-form, gives five dhatns to the child. Consciousness enters via orgasm. The three bindus, collectively known as Kamakala (digit of sexual desire), are the root potential of sun, moon and fire. It is like sun and moon coming together in an eclipse, or the seed from which the plant human being grows.

By Dr Anand babu Adyatmika scientific research center


www.Shakthiyoga.com Dhasha maha vidya Varahi's four alchemical dhatus are known as the four fires. Kurukulla's alchemical dhatus are known as the five saktis. The combination of these five saktis (downward pointing triangles) and four fires (upward pointing triangles), forms the complex figure in the centre of Shri Cakra. Varahi's four fires are the 12 (3 x 4) sun Kalas, 12 sidereal constellations. Kurukulla's five triangles are the 15 (5 x 3) Kalas of the moon, 15 lunar days. The complete individual grows within nine months to be born as a Shri Yantra or plant. The flowering of this plant is shown by the 24 petals of the yantra. The above all gives rise to the familiar shape of the Shri Yantra. The yantra is usually arranged in one of two forms. In the Bhuprastara, it is two dimensional and laid flat, usually facing the east, but sometimes the north, depending on the practice. The Meruprastara has the yantra in a pyramidal form. Unless the yantra be decorated with the appropriate bija and other mantras, it is worthless. It is also dead unless it is installed with life and the individual doing the puja is initiated into one of the lines (parampara).

The Nine Mandalas of the Shri Yantra The Earth Square or Bhupura This mandala represents the enclosing walls or fence of the zonule of a practitioner. The three lines of the bhupura of Shri Yantra each has a set of subsidiary aspects or sub-limbs of the goddess. On the outer line are the eight world protectors (lokapalas), the guardian spirits of the directions and intermediate directions. On the middle line are eight Siddhi Saktis identified with the senses. On the inner line are eight Shaktis ruling Desire, Anger, Envy, Delusion, Greed, Jealousy, Virtue and Vice.

Yantra Mantra Tantra of Lalita Lalita, as primordial devi, rays out her attendants and shaktis as modifications of moon, sun and fire. In this Shiva has no place, no qualities, is without the ability to act. Only when united with devi may 'he' act. This is based on the subtle and practical idea of Shiva as pure consciousness, witness of the triple manifestation of his Shakti. This Shakti, the very essence of the three gunas of Sattvas, Rajas, and Tamas, is the cause of all manifestation in the universe and as a human being. The three shaktis, by blending and reblending, create all things.

By Dr Anand babu Adyatmika scientific research center


www.Shakthiyoga.com Dhasha maha vidya Shakti is triple as sun, moon and fire -- that is to say of all the sidereal constellations and planets, and therefore of Time itself. She is triple as Will (Iccha), Knowledge (Jnana) and Action (Kriya). She is threefold as intellect, feelings, physical sensation. Shakti is triple as wake-dream-deep sleep. What is called the Fourth is the witness, Shiva, who is said to pervade the whole cosmos just as heat pervades a red hot iron. The physical body, according to the precepts of Ayurveda, is triple as the 'humours' Vata, Pitta and Sleshma. The varying combinations of these three shaktis make up the physical body. Shakti is also fivefold as aether, air, fire, water and earth. The combination of the five elements and three gunas produce Lalita's Eternities (Nityas) -- 15 in number, each identified with a lunar day of the bright fortnight. The moon, symbolising Shakti, is the mirror or reflection holding together all creation. A close examination of the details relating to the nine mandalas of Shri Yantra reveals that the shaktis of the whole circle represent the human being, who, in potential, is Shakti-Shiva united. The aim is for a person to realise that all powers, energies and manifestation are shaktis of consciousness, pure awareness. The yantra may be examined in two ways, either as manifestation or dissolution. Maintenance is an intermediate state between the two polarities. When she is worshipped as creatrix the order is from centre to perimeter. As dissolver, the puja is from perimeter to centre. In Sivananda Yogi's Subhagodaya is given the daily ritual or puja of Lalita's Shri Yantra -based on the Vamakeshvara Tantra. This rite is based on non-dualism, in a spiritual sense the realisation of the intrinsic oneness of macrocosm and microcosm. As the puja is intended to banish all thoughts of difference, the devi is first felt or visualised in the heart, and then drawn out via the breath and installed in the yantra. She is then worshipped as actually residing there. But a clear link has been made between subject and object. The true home of devi is as cosmo-creatrix in the heart of the body which is the devi in human form.

The Various Mandalas of Shri Yantra The Triple Goddess, from her own will to manifest, extends herself in a ninefold way, as modifications of moon, sun and fire. The attributions of the various mandalas shows the type of energy represented. The meditation in Bhavana Upanshad is a figurative way of describing this celestial city or mountain which is a human being. The island of jewels is the gross human body with its 9 alchemical bases or dhatus. Each is figuratively described as a gem -- diamond, emerald, sapphire, ruby &c. The sea of nectar (semen/ova) is the base for the arising of the human body. The diagram suns up the meditation. We can see that this island of gems is a very pleasant place to he, full of gardens, with a beautiful, begemmed palace, wafted with a gentle breeze upon which is carried great fragrance, cool, alluring.

By Dr Anand babu Adyatmika scientific research center


www.Shakthiyoga.com Dhasha maha vidya This indicates the Kaula view that one gains liberation by a very pleasant way, enjoying as one goes. This paradise island is very, very close. Each of the elements in the island meditation has a subtle meaning associated with the esoteric physiology of Shri Vidya. She, Lalita, united with Shiva, is subtlety of subtlety, hidden behind the curtain hanging from the canopy. Her forms may appear to become progressively less subtle, but she still remains herself.

Bala-Sundari-Bhairavi Although Tripurasundari, as mother of the universe (jagadamba) is the aspect most often met with in works of Shri Vidya, she is also worshipped as Bala (a young girl), and as Bhairavi (a crone). As Bala, she is 16 years old, a virgin, very playful and dear. Bala has her own yantra and mantra. her vidya is Aim Klim Sauh. Bhairavi is also an aspect of Lalita, but represents Shakti in whom menstruation has ceased, and has some affiliations with Kali.

Applications of Shri Vidya There are many prayogas (ritual uses) related to Shri Yantra. Some rites depend on auspicious times, such as Full moon days or nights in specific solar months Devi also manifests as the five elements of aether, fire, air, water and earth. The saktis are purple (air), white (water), red (fire), yellow (earth), blue (aether). Chapter II of Vamakeshvara gives a large number of rites, which one is not entitled to perform unless the daily rite is also accomplished. These rites are called the shatkarma, six acts: protection, peace, victory, wealth, punishment, destruction. The categories vary occasionally. When punishing an enemy it is necessary to both protect yourself and to know the right time for performance, according to the rules, and also the vulnerable points, which vary with the phase of the moon and with astrological aspects. It is important to remember that Shri Vidya was primarily oral, and vital information was often left out of the written versions, so it is necessary to know a host of things before a rite can be started.

Initiation Devi Lalita may be installed in a disciple, a yantra, or an image. All the methods essentially follow a similar form, but the right time must be selected. A disciple must have the necessary qualifications and potential. After initiation, she or he is to perform an operation to endue the vidya with energy or life. This involves the recitation of the root vidya a specified large number of times, although other valid methods exist for preparation.

The Vidya (Mantra) By Dr Anand babu Adyatmika scientific research center


www.Shakthiyoga.com Dhasha maha vidya There are said to be 15 lines of mantra, each perceived by a different Rishi (Seer). The most widespread seems to be that called Kadi (beginning with 'Ka'), which itself has three sections. The other main division is Hadi, although it is said that the Kularnava Tantra incorporates both in a division called Kahadi. Devotees of the Kadi line worship the Shri Yantra from the perimeter to the centre, while Hadi devotees worship it from the centre to the perimeter. Some of the lines of the vidya are said to be broken, and do not run in a continuous stream.

The 64 Kaula Tantras These tantras are enumerated in Vamakeshvara and Kulachudamani Tantras, and in other places. At some time in history a school of Shri Vidya was formed on an orthodox Vedik basis. A proponent of this school, Lakshmidhara, wrote a commentary on the famous Shri Vidya hymn called Saudaryalahari. Unfortunately, most of the 64 tantras are lost. But their contents may be gauged from Lakshmidhara's commentary. We have to remember that the descriptions are based on an orthodox Vedic interpretation. 1) Mahamaya Sambhara. Deluding of intellect and senses. 2) Yogini Jala Sambhara. Involving the agency of Yoginis. 3) Tattva Sambhara. Causing elements to appear and transform. 4-11) Eight Bhairava Tantras. The commentator says that these are objectionable as they belong to the Kapalikas or skull wearers such as Naths, Aghoris, and so forth. 12-19) The Bahurupa Astaka. Importance attached to the eight shaktis or Matrikas. 20-27) The Eight Yamalas. Of these, only Rudra Yamala seems to have survived, although it is doubtful that the text which exists is the same as the original. Other of the yamalas do exist in part as quotations in later tantras. The commentator says these relate to Siddhi. 28) Candra Jnana. Expounds the 16 Nityas, but condemned as 'it smacks of Kapalika tenets'. 29) Malini Vidya. Enabling one to cross great oceans. This could be the Malini Vijaya Tantra, a work of the Kashmir Saivites which includes magical operations based on the 36 tattvas. 30) Maha Sammohana. Hypnosis. 31-33) Vamajusta, Mahadeva and Vatula. These are condemned as they deal with Vamachara. 34-35) Vatula Uttara and Kamika. The latter is still extant, and belongs to the Kashmir group of Agamas. The chief guru of this school is the famous Abhinavagupta. 36) Hridbheda Tantra. Condemned through Vamachara. 37-38) Tantrabheda and Guhyatantra. Condemned because of retaliatory magic. 39) Kalavada. Digits of the moon, induction of chandrakalas, which are the 108 parts of the moon found in a horoscope. 40) Kalasara. The rules of colour. There is no reason given for its exclusion. 41) Kundika Mata. Attainment of siddhi through elixirs and drugs. 42) Mata Uttara. Deals with 'quicksilver'. See the Matrikabheda Tantra. 43) Vinakhya. Power over Yakshinis. 44) Trotala. Magical practices of medicine and clairvoyance. 45) Trotala Uttara. Bringing the 64 crores of yoginis face to face. 46) Pancamrita. Nectar from the body. The five nectars are mentioned in the Kaula Jnana Nirnaya. 47) Rupabheda. 48) Bhuta Uddamara. 49) Kulasara. 50) Kullaoddisha. 51) Kulacudamani. 48,50 and 51 are still available. The commentator says these tantras are not sanctioned by Veda.

www.Shakthiyoga.com Dhasha maha vidya 52-56) Sarvajna Tantra, Mahakali Mata, Arunesi, Modinisa, Vikunthesvara. They are all declared reprehensible as they belong to the digambaras (naked sadhus). 57-64) East, West, South, North, Uttara Kaulas, Vimala, Vimalotta, Devi Mata. One of these lines still exists.

The Nine Nathas Each of the nine Nathas or lords is identified with an aperture of the human body, and with one of the nine mandalas of the whole Shri Yantra. One's own guide is Shiva as pervading these nine chakras, and is identified with the current of bioenergy called Susunna. They are all meditated on as white, with two eyes and two arms, showing the gestures banishing fear and giving boons. They may be visualised as being in sexual intercourse with the presiding aspects of the Devi in the nine mandalas.

The Four Oceans The four duties of a human being are described as oceans because of their limitless extent. The sadhaka in the zone is at the junction point or field of action of these four oceans, on the island of gems.

The Nine Bodily Dhatus Each of the nine matters (dhatu) in the body is presided over by an aspect of Lalita. The Universe, in Shri Vidya, is said to be time, space, and a combination of the two. The first is Shakti, the second Shiva, and the third Shiva and Shakti in union. These are also the three eyes on Lalita's face, and sun, moon, fire.

The Island of Nine Gems On this island, which is all and everything, seed and sprout, the six seasons all manifest simultaneously. The Aeon Trees (Kalpadruma) are identified with resolution as any act undertaken with resolution is fruitful. The six seasons are identified with the six tastes of a human being. Horses are the five senses as they lead one forward into action, figuratively taken as war. It is Lalita who slayed the demon Bhanda with all his fearful hordes. All her saktis assisted her in this. Then the celestial city, the Nagar was built. Elephants are the objects of senses, or the impressions. Shri Vidya implies unity between knower, means of knowledge and knowledge itself. These are the three cities. This means that the knower, by means of the five instruments of knowledge, offers to knowledge itself, Devi in the yantra. (See Bhavanopanishad).

The Fifteen Nitya Shaktis These are modifications of Lalita as red goddess with her three gunas and her five elements of aether, air, fire, water and earth. They are identified with the 15 days of the lunar fortnight. As the moon remains itself, though appearing differently according to phase, so too Lalita. Each Nitya has her own vidya, yantra and group of energies (saktis). Lalita or Tripurasundari is the 16th day or Full moon, with her 15 digits. Each of the 15 Nityas has a certain number of arms, the totality of arms (= rays) of the whole circle being 108. Because

www.Shakthiyoga.com Dhasha maha vidya any unit of time is taken as a microcosm or parallel of any other valid unit, each of the 15 Nityas has 1440 breaths. One lunar fortnight is 21600 breaths -- which is the number of a whole cycle or process. The breaths of a human being during one day and night are 21600 -10800 of which are solar, the other 10800 being lunar. By this device, the unity of the 15 Nityas, time, space and a human being is shown. As time is breath in Shri Vidya, we find that the periods of the four famous yugas are also based on breath. Each breath is influenced during the day by the planets in their waxing and waning of power. These cause poisons to accumulate in the physical body. Nectar is released when the sun mandal 'melts' the moon mandal, and one attains to Hamsa. This is the nectar of compassion.

Lalita as the Whole Universe Tantrik rites often include 'nyasas', the placing of some principles in a certain sequence on one's own body. The idea is that this process purifies and divinises. Lalita's Sodha (sixfold) Nyasa is a highly complex rite in which a practitioner places on the body the 51 letters of the alphabet, the planets, the 27 naksatras or lunar mansions, the 12 sidereal constellations, and the 51 sacred sites (pithas) of all India. Placing these different things on the body the practitioner comes to realise oneness with the whole cosmos. This ritual also illustrates some important concepts. The Tantraraja states that there is no difference between the circle of the letters of the alphabet and the sidereal Zodiac. Lalita as devi is Shakti as all language, mantra, sound, music and vibration. She is also Shakti of Time as all planets and constellations. She is the very essence of sun and moon. Each of these realms requires inner comment.

51 Ganesas and 51 Letters The image of Ganesa illustrates the three realms. elephant, his body human, and his vehicle a mouse. These are three realms in one being. He is lord of obstacles in three ways. As elephant, his great strength can break harriers. As human, he can use his intelligence. As mouse, he can penetrate the smallest places. Every aspect of Shri Vidya may be understood in three ways -- gross, subtle, and supreme -- and so the meaning of things often remains uncertain unless you already know someone who has the key, or belong to the in group. As letters of the alphabet, Lalita is Matrika Shakti, who deludes by her Maya through words, speech, mantra.

Planets The tantriks knew the seven traditional planets of western astrology, and also had a greater number of shadowy planets, of which Rahu and Ketu -- the nodes of the moon -- are the best known. The planets are important to an understanding of Shri Vidya, but the details are so extensive that they must be reserved for a later time.

27 Nakshatras By Dr Anand babu Adyatmika scientific research center


www.Shakthiyoga.com Dhasha maha vidya These constellations were thought of as beyond the 12 sidereal constellations, so remote they were almost beyond time itself. These 27 are employed in Shri Vidya to determine suitability of partners, constructing Vajra Yantras, and so forth. Each of the 27 has its own animal. A yoni or lingam is classified as being harmonious or the reverse according to the position of the natal moon in these constellations. They are also associated with sacred herbs and trees, and much used in specific or optional rites.

Yoginis The Yoginis of the bodily centres (dhatus) reveal very much of interest as they are associated with the well known but much misunderstood cakras. These Yoginis are really images of the ayurvedic or alchemic bases in the body. They can only be understood in relation to such an alchemy. Kundalini is the body shakti, the great deluder, the trickster, the cause of sleep. To raise her means to become conscious of her manifestation. Shakti in the body has her various forms as Prana (Breath) Shakti, fire Shakti and so forth. When Prana Shakti becomes agitated, she zigzags up the body. At this time one starts to experience dissolution. Various things my be seen and felt. Dakini, Rakini &c. preside over the alchemical physical bases of skin, blood, flesh, fat, bone, marrow. The last of these yoginis presides over the highest dhatu, highest as it forms the physical basis for new life -- ova/semen. In this form she is truly limitless, as she manifests as the Aeon Tree (Kalpadruma). The Dakinis and Rakinis &c. are pictured as terrifying as they consuners of the food one ingests.

Twelve Rashis (Constellations) These are viewed as 12 great suns or sun Kalas, mighty Adityas presiding over great affairs, feeding on human beings and their essence.

51 Pithas These are places in India particularly sacred to devi, as they mark the spots where the parts of her body fell after it was sliced into pieces by the discus of Visnu. The yoni fell at Kamarupa, hence the special spiritual regard in which this place is held by Kaulas.

The Nadis Nadi means river, and is extended to include other currents and courses, such as those of the bioenergy and the pulse. Ayurvaidyas have written works distinguishing various types of pulse indicating dysfunction of the three powers. Nadi is also 150th part of the ascendant in a birth chart based on the sidereal zodiac. Such a birth chart is called Rashi Kundali. It is impossible to cast accurate charts without knowing which nadi rules a person or time. Each nadi has an aspect of the devi ruling it, and a solar and lunar part -- hence there are 3600 in the zodiac. There are said to be 72000 nadis in the human organism. This number indicates a large but not infinite number of channels of bioenergy. They are the pathways of Prana Shakti.

By Dr Anand babu Adyatmika scientific research center


www.Shakthiyoga.com Dhasha maha vidya The chief pathways are Susumna, extending from a point between the anus and genitals to the top of the head; ida and pingala, which are the solar and lunar pathways coiled around the central channel. This Susumna is Shiva and Shakti in sexual union. The human body is conceived of as a tree -- the root is at the top of the head, and it ramifies downwards. These channels are the pathways or body vehicles for Vata, one of the three dosas or humours in Ayurveda of the human body, and constitute the central nervous system with three main concentrations.

Marmas Marmas are 108 in number, well documented points of the human organisn which, if pierced, usually cause death. Many are recognised by western medicine. On the Shri Yantra, marmas are represented by the confluence of three or more lines.

Sandhis These are joints in the human frame, knee joint, elbow joint &c. The body is the temple of the devi. On the Shri Yantra sandhis are represented by the junction of two lines.

Meaning of Kula A 'kula' is a Shakti. The foregoing shows that each Shakti in the yantra is some energy of the human organism in its gross, subtle, or causal aspects. 'Akula' (lit. 'not Kula') is Shiva. "Having abandoned her family of young Kula women, she becomes Shiva, with no qualities, no characteristics, devoid of the form of time." -- Vamakesvara Tantra "All things the body. The body is the sacrificial ladle. Knowledge is the food." -- Shiva Sutras II, 9-10.

The Weapons of Lalita Lalita holds five flowery arrows, noose, goad and bow. The noose is attachment (moon). The goad is repulsion (sun). The sugarcane bow is the mind. The flowery arrows are the five sense impressions. When oonsciousness perceives these, the outward directed arrows stop being dry sticks. These five flowery arrows together with the bow are personified as six Krishnas or Kamadevas. V84 of ch xxiv of Tantrarajatantra states that Lalita assumed a male form as Krishna, and 'by enveloping all women enchanted the whole world'. Each of the six forms is like dawn, with six arms, holding flute, noose, goad, sugarcane bow, flowers, sour milk.

Eroticism in Shri Vidya The physiology of Shri Vidya postulates macrocosm and microcom as one. From this follows the realisation that the sexual union of man and wanan mirrors the cosmic creation. It is natural that loving sexuality should be seen to have a cosmic status. Kaulas have been criticised as their works emphasise love and death, but they were always realists. Many tantras establish that the terrifying Kali and the benign Lalita are two sides of

By Dr Anand babu Adyatmika scientific research center


www.Shakthiyoga.com Dhasha maha vidya the same coin. This coin or currency is called life. Lalita, with her waxing moon, represents creation, and Kalika with her waning moon dissolution. Each is a complete symbol, of high sublimity and loaded with spiritual significance.

The 15 Syllable Mantra A chart, in Sanskrit, in the Adyar Library edition of Varivasya Rahasya, which deals with the 15 lettered Vidya of Lalita is so useful to an understanding of Shri Vidya and the yantra that we have summarised its contents below. The Kadi Vidya runs ka e i la hrim: ha sa ka ha la hrim: sa ka la hrim. There is also a secret 16th syllable said to be the quintessence of Lalita. There vidya, yantra, guru, disciple, goddess are all conceived of as being one. The Shri Yantra is within the wheel of time (Kalacakra), and represents the human body (microcosm), and the universe (macrocosm). These 15 letters are conceived to exist within the meru or spine of a human being, from the base to the top of the head. The seven (or nine) 'cakras' are strung along this thread of light, as are the different mandals or circles of Shri Yantra. Note that the Lalita Vidya is itself divided into three parts, each represents fire, sun and moon. Different letters of the alphabet all exist in a subtle form within the spinal cord. Each chakra is presided over by a Yogini whose function is connected with the transmutation of food, which is alchemy of the food factory. There are 50 petals associated with these six cakras as there are 50 letters of the Sanskrit alphabet. 21600/50 = 432. The cakra of the absolute or semen/ova itself has 1000 letters or petals. Semen is conceived of as residing here because of its alchemical nature as an elixir produced by the synthesis of the forms of food. These three which are oneness are knower, means of knowledge, object of knowledge. Their union is called samarasa. The three corners of the central triangle of the Shri Chakra are presided over by three symbolic Nathas. The Fourth Natha, Shiva Himself, is united with Shakti in the centre of the Bindu. This Bindu, united Shiva Shakti, creates the cosmos. If we observe nature we see that the Shri Cakra (child) comes from the sexual union or samarasa (perfect assimilation) of man (Shiva) and woman (Shakti). Their samarasa is known as the Fourth, because it appears when all three are present, and also produces or has the three as its powers or saktis. This Fourth is awareness, the witness, the enjoyer, the measurer, the measuring stick, and the measured, Adinatha, the merulingam, beyond time and space, and therefore outside the Shri Yantra or the cosmos as modification or play of sun, moon and fire. These last three form the body of Lalita.

By Dr Anand babu Adyatmika scientific research center


www.Shakthiyoga.com Dhasha maha vidya The three saktis of the Fourth are known as Kamesvari, Vajresi and Bhagamalini, in the symbolism of Shri Vidya. They are also the saktis Iccha, Jnana and Kriya (Knowledge, Will, Action), and in their aspects as Creator, Maintainer and Destroyer are known as Vama, who vomits forth the universe, Jyesta who maintains, and Raudri who dissolves. The body of a human being is made up of these three in combination and blending. They are active, passive and reconciling. The three are also symbolised as three holy mountains known as Kamagiri, Purnagiri, and Jalandhari. The apex of these foothills is the very secret Oddiyana, at the centre of Shri Yantra. The three also represent three symbolic lingas within the human frame. Conceived of as the human body, and as the Meru or subtle spine, these three places are points of convergence or pilgrimage of the channels of bioenergy connected with the sun and moon. There is a correspondence between these channels in the body, and the luminaries in the heaven. As the Shri Yantra is Time and Space, all constellations, planets, lunar mansions, are conceived of as being the body of Lalita, Maha Tripura Sundari. It was these three cities that were destroyed by Lord Shiva, and described in the Shiva Mahimna Stotra. At the confluence of the three rivers of bioenergy are three lingams of Supreme Shiva, resorted to by the wise. One united with the Fourth is liberated. Others are deluded by the Maya or play of the goddess, who, with her three aspects in all is known as Mahamaya Adya, the womb of all. She deludes by her every process, and has the form of Matrika devi, or goddess of speech and words. The 15 syllables of the vidya are usually disguised in symbolic design or code. The three Hrims are called the three maya granthis or knots of delusion. This Hrim breaks down into Ha for Shiva, Ha for Shakti, and Im for samarasa. The Fourth (Turiya) also pervades consciousness in its states of waking, dreaming and deep sleep. This is also expressed in the Shiva Sutra.

Meaning of Shri Vidya The Yogini Hridaya, the second part of the Vamakeshvara Tantra, states that the mantra has several meanings. Some are literal, others traditional, inner, Kaulika, occult and real.

Literal Meaning The syllables represent Shiva and Shakti. The first part, Ka E I La Hrim, is called Vagbhava, and is Vama Shakti, Brahma, Jnana Shakti, and Eastern Face. The second part, Ha Sa Ka Ha La hrim, is Kamaraja, Jyesta Shakti, Visnu, Iceha Shakti, and Southern Face. The third part, Sa Ka La hrim, is called Shakti, is Raudri Shakti, Rudra, Kriya Shakti and Western Face. The fourth part, the hidden or secret syllable, is mother goddess, Shambhu Natha, the totality of the three shaktis of Knowledge, Will and Action, and the Northern Face or amnaya.

By Dr Anand babu Adyatmika scientific research center


www.Shakthiyoga.com Dhasha maha vidya Traditional Meaning Ka = air, Ha = fire, Sa = water, La = earth, Ha = aether. The vowels are above aether. The 15 syllables are 1 of aether, 2 of air, three of fire, four of water, and five of earth. The three forms of La represent the three Worlds. The five forms of the letter Ha represent sound.

Inner Meaning The vidya shows oneness of Shiva, Guru, devi and disciple; as it is Shiva in sound form (Shakti) which preserves the line.

Kaula Meaning The Mother goddess is known as Ganeshi (Lady of Hosts), because of her great nunber of rays. These are the Ganesas of the sixfold Nyasa. Devi has three eyes which are sun, moon, fire. She has three saktis which are Will, Knowledge, Action. She has three gunas which are active, passive, reconciling. These are the nine planets. The 27 naksatras are 10 Knowledge and Action modes, 10 objects of senses, Devi, Deva, three gunas as one, and the four inner causes. The six yoginis have their names beginning Da, Ra, La, Ka, Sa, Ha -- and end in 'akini'. They preside over the physical bases (dhatus) of the body. The 12 sidereal constellations are the 10 vital breaths, the embodied being (jiva), and the Supreme Creator. The 51 pithas correspond to the letters of the alphabet, and are points of confluence one should visit within the body. Each of the three sections of the vidyas represents speech -- in potential, in formation, in manifestation. The Devi is Matrika Shakti.

Breath is Time This is a fundamental postulate of Shri Vidya and much of the symbolism is based on it. The letters of Sanskrit said to represent the embodiment of Laiita as mantra are 52 in number: 16 vowels and 36 consonants. These, multiplied together, total 576. This number, divided by nine yields 64. The Shri Yantra is said to have 64,000,000 yoginis in the nine sub-mandalas. Each mandala has a unit of Time associated with it. The basic unit is a breath. One nadika is equal to 24 minutes or 1440 seconds, and each breath is one 360th of this, or four seconds. A human being breathes 21600 times each 24 hours. A Kali Yuga is 432,000 years of 360 days. A Dvapara Yuga is 864,000 years. A Treta Yuga is 1,296,000 years. A Satya Yuga is 1,728,000 years. The circle of the sidereal zodiac has 12 constellations, each of which has nine parts (navamshas). These 108 (12 x 9) are called Candrakalas. Each Candrakaia is, itself, a micro-constellation. The number of degrees in the sidereal cakra is 360. The number of minutes is 21600. A conjunction is 21600', a square 5400', an opposition 10800'. Each eternity (Nitya) of the root mantra has 1440 breaths. (See the prayoga of Bhavana Upanishad). This implies that Lalita is 21600, as she is the collectivity of the 15 Nityas. Lalita's cakra is the grand synthesis of Time, Space, and humankind. Her 36 tattvas are the whole cosmos.

www.Shakthiyoga.com Dhasha maha vidya Ritual Accessories (Upachara) These can be multiplied indefinitely. The chief are scent (earth), incense (air), flame (fire), water, and flowers (aether). They should all be red, or tinged with red. They represent, in their basic form, the five impressions. See Gandharva Tantra.

Devatas of the Leftovers At the end of the rite Vatuka Natha is in the NE, and takes flame leftovers; Yoginis in the SE take mantra leftovers; Kshetrapala in the SW takes scent and incense leftovers; Ganesa, in the NW, takes mudra leftovers. The aspect of Lalita called Sosika consumes everything that is left. She is worshipped in the NE in a circular pit.

Gayatri This is the name of a specific kind of mantra used at the four twilights of dawn, midday, dusk and midnight. There are Vedik and Tantrik gayatris. Lalita has her own which is tripurasundaryai vidmahe kameshvaryai dhimahi tanno klinne prachodayat.

Esoteric Meaning of the Vidya This leads the sadhaka to identify the vidya with moon, sun and fire, as sections of the central or Susunna Nadi, relating to Intellect, Emotions, and Physical Sensations. These have to he brought together for the Fourth to appear. There are 10 fire kalas, 12 sun kalas, and 15 moon kalas. The 16th includes them all.

Sound The letters of the vidya are Nada, or sound, and the absolute, and end as uttered sound. When charged with the consciousness of the Fourth these mere letters become mantra. Otherwise, words continually delude. The 16th syllable of the vidya also represents the Fourth. This Fourth is Kamakala. Beyond it is the Ultimate Absolute (Atiturya - beyond the Fourth), and beyond any sort of description

Mahashodha Nyasa Thou art the body of Shambhu with two breasts which are the Sun and Moon. Oh, Bhagavati, thou art the all pervading stainless one; therefore the connection between each, of thee as part and whole is the nature common to both, the same lordship and supreme bliss - Wave of Bliss (Woodroffe's translation) The Sodha Nyasa (sixfold nyasa), which is part of the daily worship of Tripurasundari, is here for the first time translated into English, from the work called Nityotsava, itself a commentary on the famous Kalpasutras of Parashuram.

By Dr Anand babu Adyatmika scientific research center


www.Shakthiyoga.com Dhasha maha vidya Parashurama was a brahmana initiated by Lord Dattatreya into the worship of Shri Shri Mahatripurasundari Lalita Devi. The Kalpasutras provides a compendium for the worship of that Devi. Various forms of nyasa, which means 'placing', enter into this and all other forms of tantrika puja. The dialogue between Parashuram and Dattatreya is contained in the Tripura Rahasya, a wonderful work which is available in an English translation published by the Sri Ramana Ashram in Tiruvannamalai. The Sodha Nyasa in which Devi outspreads as Ganeshas, planets, 27 nakshatras (asterisms), yoginis of the seven dhatus or bodily elements of ayurveda, sidereal zodiac, and sacred sites (pithas) is described in very many agamas such as Vamakeshvara Tantra, Gandharva Tantra, Jnanarnava, The 1,000 Names of Lalita, etc.. It is described in detail in the Yogini Hridaya, itself said to form the latter part of the Vamakeshvara Tantra. The ritual centres the worshipper as one with She whose true nature is Chit or Consciousness Shakti. She is triple in Her manifestation as the three gunas -- represented by Her three Saktis of Iccha (will), Jnana (knowledge), and Kriya (action) -- and rays out as the 15 Nityas or Eternities who express the phases of the Moon or Candrakalas, and form the body of time. According to the tradition, Shiva, without characteristics is awareness. And Shiva is one with Shakti. Her parts as represented by the Shodha Nyasa amount to 156, and comprise all visible manifestation. She is Maya Shakti, the Matrika or letters of the alphabet Devi, the heap of words and letters which delude men and women, and also those letters transformed by awareness into mantra. Her yantra is the Shri Chakra, which contains all letters within its heap of petals, lotuses and lines. This yantra, which is a diagrammatic representation of the human body, is within the wheel of time. Worship via this ritual is intended to assist a sadhvini or sadhaka to realise her or his oneness with the Shakti, with the yantra, and with time itself in all its manifestations.

Shri Chakra Nyasa When one meditates that the virtuous one is in her heart, as bright as vermilion, it is said that she causes delusion, desire, subjugation and attraction - Vamakeshvarimatam IV, 42 The following lengthy and complex nyasa is translated from Nityotsava, a work based on the Kalpasutras, and written by Umanandanatha, a disciple of Bhaskararaya (Bhasurandandanatha), an 18th century devotee of Shri Vidya who wrote an extensive commentary on the Lalitasahasranama (Thousand Names of Lalita). This last work is in English translation in an Adyar Library tradition. Bhaskararaya also wrote a work called Varivarahasya, also in English translation. (See bibliography).

Shri Vidya Ratna Sutras Thou who has stolen the left half of the body of Shambhu art yet methinks dissatisfied therewith. It would seem that the other half has been stolen also, so that Thou art now red and three-eyed, weighted with two breasts, and with the whole of the crescent moon Thou art crowned - Wave of Bliss V23, Woodroffe translation This brief work, available in an iTrans Sanskrit version elsewhere on this site, gives in a concise form details of Devi Lalita, the Triple Goddess, Mahatripurasundari, along with her attendant and subsidiary forms with their yantras and mantras. It is apparent from the work below that Lalita is outside or above the cardinal points, in the palace of gems on the paradise island. The throne she occupies is surrounded by four gates, each presided over by a vidya (Devi as sound). The whole work, in the original Sanskrit, uses a number code for the yantras and vidyas (mantras) of the different retinues, with consonants representing numbers, vowels zero. The vidya (translated here as female excellence), the form of the Devi, and her yantra are all one. Below, and before our translation, is the English introduction to the Sanskrit text, published in 1924 as Volume II of the Princess of Wales Sarasvati Bhavana series, written by Narayana Shastri Khiste, and out of copyright. The Sanskrit text as published in that text has jumbled the numbers. We apologise in advance for any defects in our translation, and welcome corrections.

Introduction The Vidyaratna Sutra is an interesting work on Tripura Agama attributed to Gaudapada. Though the identity of this author is not yet established, it seems probable that he was the same as the Parama Guru of the great Shankaracharya. That Shankaracharya was also a Tantric teacher of the Tripura Line is now beyond doubt; and it is well known that Gaudapada was the author of a stotra called Subhagodaya, which sings the glories of the Supreme Goddess in the form of Tripura. Bhaskara Raya in his Saubhagyabhaskara refers to and quotes from Shri Vidyaratna sutra as a work of Gaudapada. The author of the Commentary on the sutras, also published with the text (as far as available), was one Shankararanya who calls himself a pupil of Vidyaranya muni. He must be distinguished from Shankarananda, another pupil of Vidyaranya, whose style of composition as evident from his numerous commentaries on the Upanisads is widely different from that of the present author.

By Dr Anand babu Adyatmika scientific research center


www.Shakthiyoga.com Dhasha maha vidya Though Shankararanya associates himself with the name of the great Vidyaranya, his fame will not thereby be ensured. The whole commentary bears traces of grammatical aberrations, faulty Sanskrit and lack of mastery of the subject. Assuming that the author did not wilfully beguile his relations, he may be assigned to the 14th or 15th Century AD. The sutras of Gaudapada are 101 in number, of which the first 21 only have been commented upon. The commentary did not extend further, the author observing that as the remaining sutras are plain in meaning they do not call for notes. The subject matter of the sutras may be touched upon in a few words: Brahma is described by the author as the Principle of Light, which is its Essence and Power. It is self-luminous in character, and the relation between Brahma and Shakti is one of nondifference. This Power is called anAmA, better known as Shrividya, which though one becomes manifold by means of the three tattvas. The Tattva is the same as Brahma or Shakti. It is threefold, viz. Atma, Vidya and Shiva. In the guru too we have a triple Ogha (viz. Divya, Siddha and Manava), Krama otherwise known as Adhisthana, Sadhana, Tattva, charana, or as Shakti, Kamaraja and Vagbhava Kutas, or as Para, Pashyanti and Madhyama. The Shakti as thus triplicated, becomes Vidya, Shyama and Shambhavi, which are associated respectively with Brahma, Vishnu and Shambhu. The lords (Purushas) of these three powers, are Parama Shiva (of Para Vidya), Sadashiva (of Shyamala) and Rudra (of Shambhavi). The Vidya is by reason of perfection of Saundarya called Tripurasundari. She is also called Kameshvari after the name of her Purusha Parama Shiva who is called Kameshvara. She is referred to as Rajarajeshvari, Shodashi, &c. also. From the above sketch it will appear that Shyama and Shambhavi are respectively the Purva and Uttara Vidyas of Shrividya, from which many Vidyas appeared and came to be regarded as belonging to the family of Maha Vidya. Thus the Vidyas issuing from Shyama of the Purvamnaya preside over the Rgveda at the Eastern Gate. The Shambhavi Vidyas are of the Uttaramnaya and preside over the Samaveda at the Northern Gate. The Supreme Vidya Tripurasundari, as Anuttara, is mistress of the Baindava Chakra within the Chintamani grha. The above will suffice, I believe, to give an idea of the general contents of the book now published.

Translation Now the investigation into the Shakti mantra agama. This indivisible creatrix is the self. Chit-Shakti is the very essence of consciousness (chaitanya). She, known as Anama, is called Shri Vidya. Through the three tattvas, she becomes many. The multitude of triangles and petals is her chakra. She is the sum total of Shambhavi, Vidya and Shyama, who are the three tattvas and the three types. She is the sum total of the various vidyas from east [clockwise] to north. These vidyas are, therefore, her retinue. Shyama is in the east. Saubhagya, herself a composite-aggregate, is in the south. Another composite-aggregate is in the west. Shambhavi, with her retinue, is in the north. There is another composite-aggregate above. Mahavidya Tripurasundari, the Anuttara, is in the palace made from the wish-fulfilling gem (Chintamani). She, in order to kill (the anti-god) Bhandasura, became many. From her arose the many mantras, yantras and tantras. With their various kinds of devotion and their various principles of worship (upasana). From these arise various results (fruits). The dwelling place of Shri is said to consist of bindu, triangle, eight triangles, two series of 10 triangles, 14 triangles, eight petals, 16 petals, three lines, and a rectangle. This consists of nine enveloping gems. Out of herself the mother created Saubhagya's yantra. Having produced this, she created the western place. These three have various attendants. The yantra of Shuddhi Vidya, her dwelling place, has two, three, six and sixteen petals. The abode of Kumari has two, eight and 16 petals. Each of these has a yantra with one, three, six, eight, five, eight, eight, 12 and six petals. The yantra and dwelling place of Shyama has bindu, four, five and eight triangles, and 16 and
