   [from ]
                          MANTRA MAHODADHINI
                              TARANGA SIX
Subject: Mantras of ChinnamastA
   Now the mantras of ChinnamastA are being described which fructify
   very quickly.
   PadmAsanA (shrIm), ShivAyugma (hrIm hrIm),
   Shashishekhara-bhautika (aim), then 'VajravairocanI',
   PadmanAbhayukta sadAgati (ye), two MAyAs (hrIm hrIm), Astra
   (phat), then DahanapriyA (svAhA) at the end and Pranava (aum) in
   the beginning, makes the seventeen-syllabled mantra.
   C. Extricated Form of the Mantra
   Aum shrIm hrIm hrIm vajravairocanIye hrIm hrIm phat svAhA.
   Viniyoga and NyAsa
   Rsi of this seventeen-syllabled mantra is Bhairava, Chanda is
   SamrAt and DevatA is ChinnamadtA BhuvaneshvarI.
   Mantras for the NyAsa should be formed by putting Pranava in the
   beginning, two MAyA-bIjas and Astra-bIja at the end, and
   in-between putting "Am KhadgAya", "Im sukhadgAya", "Um vajrAya",
   "aim pAshAya", "aum amkushAya" and "ah vasuraksa". SvAhA should
   be placed at the end of each of the mantras of KarAnga-nyAsa.
   With the mantras so formed NyAsas should respectively be
   performed on the heart, mouth, head, tuft of hair on the crown,
   armor, eyes and palms and backs of the hands.=20 After performing
   the NyAsas on the organs, the SAdhaka should meditate upon the
   C. Viniyoga
   Aum asya shri Chinnamasta mantrasya Bhairava Rsih, SamrAt
   chandah, ChinnamastA-bhuvaneshvarI devatA, (hUm hUm bIjam, svAhA
   shaktih) mamAbhIstasiddhaye jape viniyogah.
   BhairavAya rsaye namah -- shirasi; SamrAt chandase namah Mukhe;
   ChinnamastA devatAyai namah -- hrdi; hUm hUm bIjaya namah --
   guhye; SvAhA shaktaye namah pAdayoh.
   Aum Am KhadgAya hrIm hrIm phat hrdayAya svAha-Kanisthayoh. Aum Im
   sukhadgAya hrIm hrIm phat Shirase svAhA-AnAmikayoh. Aum Um
   VajrAya hrIm hrIm phat ShikAyai svAhA -- Madhyamayoh. Aum aim
   PAshAya hrIm hrIm phat KavacAya svAhA -- Tarjanyoh. Aum aum
   AmkushAya hrIm hrIm phat Netra-trayAya svAhA Angusthayoh. Aum ah
   Vasuraksa hrIm hrIm phat astrAya phat -- Karatalakara-prsthayoh.
   In the same manner Sadanga-nyAsa should be performed on the
   heart, head, tuft of hair on the crown, armor, eyes and on the
   plams and backs of the hands.
   I meditate upon the Goddess ChinnamastA who is seated in the
   center of the sun's disc and holds in her left hand her own
   severed head with gaping mouth, her hairs are disshevelled and
   she is drinking the stream of blood gushing out from her own
   neck. She is seated on Rati and KAmadeva, who are engrossed in
   sexual dalliance, and she is rejoicing with her friends named
   DAkinI and VarninI.
   Number of Japas and the Materials for Offering Oblations in the
   Meditating upon the Goddess as above, the SAdhaka should perform
   400,000 Japas of the Mantra and then offer oblations in the fire,
   one tenth of the number of Japas, with flowers or fruits of
   PalAsha or Bilva.
   Worship of the Pedestal On the pedestal, duly worshiped with the
   mantras from "AdhArashaktaye namah" to "ParamAtmane namah", JayA,
   VijayA, AjitA, AparAjitA, NityA, VilAsinI, DogdhrI and AghorA
   should be worshiped in the eight quarters and the MangalA in the
   center. Thus the nine Shaktis should be worshiped.
   "Sarvabuddhiprade-varnanIye sarva", then sadrk Bhrgu (si), then
   'ddhiprade-dAkinIye', then TAra (Aum), then 'vajra', sa-bhautika
   KhadgIsha (vai), then 'rocanIye', then Bhaga (e), 'hyehi' and, at
   the end, 'namah' and Pranava (aum) in the beginning, makes the
   thirty-four syllabled mantra. Submitting the Asana (seat) with
   this mantra, the Goddess should then be worshiped.
   C. Procedure of the Worship of ChinnamastA
   After meditating upon the Goddess according to Shloka 6 above,
   and also worshiping her with mental rituals, the SAdhaka should
   establish the water-vessel according to the procedure followed in
   the case of TArA above and then begin the worship of the Pedestal
   in the following manner:
   AumAdhArashaktaye namah; Aum prakrtaye namah; Aum KUrmAya namah;
   Aum AnantAya namah; Aum Prthivyai namah; Aum KsIrasamudrAya
   namah; Aum RatnadvIpAya namah; Aum KalpavrksAya namah; Aum
   Svarna-simhAsanAya namah; Aum Ananda-kandAya namah; Aum
   SamvinnAlAya namah; Aum SarvatattvAtmaka-padmAya namah; Aum sam
   SattvAya namah; Aum ram Rajase namah; Aum tam Tamase namah; Aum
   Am Atmane namah; Aum am antarAtmane namah; Aum pam ParamAtmane
   namah; Aum hrIm J=F1AnAtmane namah; Madhye Aum Rati KAmAbhyAm
   Worshiping the pedestal with the above mantras, the Shaktis
   should be worshiped in the east, etc., quarters with the
   following mantras:
   Aum JayAyai namah; Aum VijayAyai namah; Aum AjitAyai namah; Aum
   AparAjitAyai namah; Aum NityAyai namah; Aum VilAsinyai namah; Aum
   Dogdhryai namah; Aum GhorAyai namah.
   Then in the center, the ninth Shakti should be worshiped with the
   mantra "Aum MangalAyai namah."
   After this, with the PItha-mantra "Aum sarva-buddhiprade
   varnanIye sarvasiddhiprade DAkinIye aum vajra-vairocanIye ehyehi
   namah" the ChinnamastA, with her companions the VarnanI and
   DAkinI, should be given seats and then worshiped.
   According the the Bhairava-tantra, meditating upon the Goddess
   properly on the aforesaid pedestal, she should be invoked with
   the mantra "Aum sarvasiddhi-varnanIye sarvasiddhi DAkinIye
   VajravairocanIye ihA-vaha, sarvasiddhi VarnanIye sarvasiddhi
   DAkinIye Vajra-vairocanIye iha tistha-tistha iha sannidhehi iha
   sanniruddhadva". Invoking the Goddess thus, she should be
   properly worshiped with the Mantra "Aum Vajra-vairocanIye dehi
   dehi ehi ehi grhna grhna svAvA mama siddhim dehi dehi
   mama-shatrUna mAraya-mAraya karAlike hum phat svAhA."
   Worship of the Coverings
   On a Yantra consisting of a Triangle, hexagon, eight petals and a
   square, the SAdhaka, beginning from the outer covering and
   proceeding in an inverse order, performs the worship. In the
   external side of the square the Vajra, etc. weapons and inside it
   Indra, etc., Guardians of the Quarters should be worshiped.
   Then, on the four gates of the Square, the four Guardians of the
   Gates -- KarAla, VikarAla, AtikAla and MahAkAla should be
   worshiped. After this, on the eight petals, the eight Shaktis
   known as EkalingA, YoginI, DAkinI, BhairavI, MahAbhairavI,
   KendrAksI, AsitAngI and SamhArini should be worshiped.
   In the triangle the ChinnamastA DevI and on her sides her two
   companions named DAkinI and VarninI should be worshiped with
   their name-mantras prefixed with Pranava and VAg-BIja. When the
   mantra becomes accomplished and potent with these worships, all
   the SAdhaka's desires are fulfilled.
   C. Procedure for the Worship of the Coverings
   For the worship of ChinnamastA a Yantra consisting of a Triangle,
   hexagon, eight petals and a square should be constructed.
   After the worship of the pedestal and the DevI, the SAdhaka,
   after obtaining the permission of the DevI, should start the
   worship of the coverings. This worship of ChinnamastA Devi should
   begin from the outer-most Covering and proceed in an inverse
   order as follows:
   Outside the square, in the east, etc., quarters, the Vajra, etc.
   weapons should be worshiped with these mantras: Aum VajrAya
   namah; Aum Shaktaye namah; Aum DandAya namah; Aum KhadgAya namah;
   Aum PAshAya namah; Aum AmkushAya namah; Aum GadAyai namah; Aum
   ShUlAya namah; Aum PadmAya namah; Aum CakrAya namah.
   Then, inside the square in the east, etc., quarters, the
   Guardians of the Quarters should be worshiped with the mantras:
   Aum IndrAya namah; Aum Agnaya namah; Aum YamAya namah; Aum
   Nirrtaye namah; Aum VarunAya namah; Aum VAyave namah; Aum SomAya
   namah; Aum IshAnAya namah; Aum Brahmane namah; Aum AnantAya
   Then, on the four gates of the square, KarAla, etc., DikpAla
   should be worshiped with these mantras: Aum KarAlAya namah; Aum
   VikarAlAya namah; Aum AtikAlAya namah; Aum MahAkAlaya namah.
   Then, in the eight petals, Ekalinga, etc., the eight Shaktis
   should be worshiped with these mantras: Aum EkalingAyai namah;
   Aum Yoginyai namah; Aum DAkinyai namah; Aum Bhairavyai namah; Aum
   MahAbhairavyai namah; Aum KendrAksyai namah; Aum AsitAngyai
   namah; Aum SamhArinyai namah.
   Then, Sadanga-worship should be performed in the hexagon with
   these mantras: Aum Am KhadgAya hrIm hrIm phat hrdayAya svAhA; Aum
   Im SukhadgAya hrIm hrIm phat Shirase svAhA; Aum Um VajrAya hrIm
   hrIm phat shikhAyai svAha; Aum aim pAshAya hrIm hrIm phat
   KavacAya svAha; Aum om amkushAya hrIm hrIm phat netra-trayAya
   svAhA; Aum ah vasuraksa hrIm hrIm phat astrAya phat svAhA.
   Then, in the triangle the ChinnamastA, with DAkinI and VarninI,
   should be worshiped with the following mantras: Aum aim
   chinnamastAyai namah; Aum aim dAkinyai namah; Aum aim vArninyai
   Thus completing the worship of the coverings and offering five
   PuspA˝jalis, the Japa of the Mantra should be performed properly.
   Experiments for the Fulfilment of Desires
   When the mantra becomes accomplished and potent by such a worship
   and Purashcarana, a SAdhaka obtains the fructification of even
   the rarest of his desires very quickly.
   If a SAdhaka performs Homas with the flowers of the Bilva tree,
   he attains wealth and fame; and with the Homa of Bilva he obtains
   fulfilment of all his desires.
   If the Homa is performed with MAlati flowers, the SAdhaka will
   attain perfection in speech. The Havana with CampA flowers
   provides all happiness and comforts. A SAdhaka who offers 100
   oblations daily for one month with the flesh of goats smeared
   with ghee captivates even the king.
   The SAdhaka who offers 100,000 oblations with white KaravIra
   flowers becomes free of all ailments and lives for a hundred
   years. Offering 100,000 oblations with red KaravIra flowers
   captivates the king and his ministers. Oblations of fruit of
   palAsha and udumbara bestow wealth. Oblations of the flesh of
   jackals, too, bestows wealth. Oblations with rice cooked in milk
   added to sugar and foodgrains bestow the ability to write poetry.
   Oblations of BandhUka flowers bestows good fortune. Oblations of
   Tila and rice captivate all persons. Oblations of the flesh of a
   deer attract, while of a buffalo's flesh paralyze. Oblations of
   lotus smeared with ghee also paralyze people.
   To secure the death of an enemy, oblations of cuckoo's feathers
   should be offered in a funeral pyre. Oblations of crow's feathers
   in fire kindled from DhattUrA wood also kill the enemy.
   In gambling, forest, royal court, battlefield and at a time of
   danger from an enemy, meditation upon the DevI and recitation of
   the Mantra provides victory to the SAdhaka.
   For enjoyment of worldly pleasures and emancipation, the
   white-complexioned DevI; for aversion, the blue-complexioned
   DevI; for captivation, the red-complexioned DevI; for
   eradication, the smoky-complexioned DevI; and for paralyzing
   others, the golden-complexioned DevI should be meditated upon.
   For seeking the pleasure of the DevI, oblations of liquor, etc.,
   should be offered in the night.
   Now an all-fructifying and extremely secret experiment is being
   described: on the midnight of the fourteenth day of a dark
   fortnight in pitch darkness, the SAdhaka should take his bath,
   then putting on red clothes, a red garland and applying red
   sandal-paste, he should bring a lady and assuming her as
   ChinnamastA, worship her. This beautiful young lady should be in
   the prime of her youth, virile enough to satisfy five persons,
   with dishevelled hair and of cheerful nature. She should be
   pleased with the offerings of ornaments and garments. After this,
   undressing her altogether and worshiping her, the SAdhaka should
   perform ten thousand Japas of the Mantra. Then offering oblations
   and spending the night with her, she should be satisfied with
   gifts. On the next morning, treating them as DavatAs, Brahmins
   should be fed with various kinds of delicious food. On completion
   of this experiment, the SAdhaka obtains wealth, offspring, fame,
   happiness, long life, beautiful women, prosperity, and other
   desired fruits. A SAdhaka desirous of obtaining erudition should
   observe fast on the night of worship, while SAdhakas desirous of
   other kinds of fruits should, while reciting the mantra, cohabit
   with the said lady. (Translators Note: "All and sundry are not
   entitled to perform this experiment. Only after securing
   initiation from an accomplished guru and knowing the secrets of
   the experiment, one should indulge in it. Otherwise the SAdhaka
   will get adverse and harmful results.)
   It is useless to exaggerate the importance of this mantra. Mere
   knowledge of this secret science bestows knowledge of Shastras,
   destroys all sins and provides all kinds of comfort and
   happiness. Rising early at dawn the SAdhaka should, while sitting
   on his bed, perform 100 Japas of the mantras. By so doing he can
   defeat even ShukrAcArya (the preceptor of the Demons and one of
   the most reputed scholars) with his poetic capabilities.
   Method of Unsealing
   This mantra (VidyA) has been sealed by Lord Shiva. Hence its
   unsealing is being described: Before and after the Japa of the
   Mantra, the MAyA-bIja (hrIm), duly prefixed and suffixed with
   Pranava (i.e. Aum hrIm aum) should be recited one hundred and
   eight times. This makes the mantra fruitful. A SAdhaka desirous
   of fruits should definitely keep this method a well-guarded
   Thus the ChinnamastA Mantra has been described, which very
   quickly bestows desired fruits in this Kali age.
