Book a Shiva Pooja
According to Linga Purana once Brahma and Vishnu started fighting over who was the supreme being. Suddenly, there appeared a Sivalinga before them as a huge column of fire. Both of them decided to find one end each. Whoever returned first would be acknowledged as supreme. Vishnu assumed the form of a boar and went down. Brahma, in the form of a swan, flew upwards. They searched for days but in vain. Then Shiva appeared in the fiery column. Brahma and Vishnu realised their mistake and acknowledged Shiva as the Supreme Being. The Shivalinga represents that column of fire as 12 Jyotirlingas.
There are 12 famous Jyotirlingas where Lord Shiva appeared in the form of light (Jyothi) lingam. These have been worshipped from time immemorial. They are mentioned in the Dwadasa Jyotirlinga Stotra given here.

“Om Aim Hreem Shreem Sri Lalita Tripurasundari Padukam Poojayami Namah”

Chakra pooja or Yantra pooja is the worship of a deity in a diagrammatic form. This type of worship exists in a lot of the other parts of the world also.
The worship of Devi in Shreechakra is regarded as the highest form of the Devi worship. Originally Lord Shiva gave 64 Chakras and their Mantras to the world, to attain various spiritual and material benefits. For his consort Devi he gave the Shreechakra and the highly coveted and the most powerful Shodashakshari mantra, which is the equivalent of all the other 64 put together.
It is said that in the beginning God, who was one, wanted to become many and enjoy himself. As the first step to creation he created Devi – the total cosmic Female force. For the male part, out of his left he created Shiva, out of his middle he created Brahma and out of his right he created Vishnu. That is why many regard the Devi as more powerful than the Trinities and hence She is called Parashakti or Paradevi – Para meaning beyond . Brahma created the universe.
Vishnu controls and runs the universe. Shiva along with Shakti is engaged in the eternal dissolution and recreation of the universe. The Bindu in the center of the Shreechakra is the symbolic representation of the cosmic spiritual union of Shiva and Shakti. Apart from that the Shreechakra also embodies countless number of deities and represents the whole of creation. Hence by worshipping the Devi in Shreechakra one is actually worshipping the highest ultimate force in the Tantrik form.
The Shodashakshari mantra is one of the most guarded secretes of tantra. Usually the Guru gives it to a highly deserving and tested disciple. Very few get it. Even in the Mantra Shastra, where all other mantras are openly and clearly given, the Shodashakshari Mantra is not directly given. Several hints about the mantra are given and you are asked to get the mantra if you are capable and deserving. The opening versus of the mantra shastra chapter on Shreechakra says, “Your head can be given, your soul can be given but the Shodashakshari Mantra of the Devi can not be given”.
Various books and websites on Shreechakra have published what the publishers thought is the Shodashakshari Mantra. Let me make it clear that those who know it will never publish it and those who publish it do not know it. So don’t waste your full moon nights chanting those long mantras.
However, Shreechakra can also be worshipped by other Devi mantras. There are several traditions of the worshipping the Shreechakra. We are giving here a very simple and still very effective pooja of Shreechakra. It is known as the Shreechakra Navavarana pooja as per the Khadgamala Vidhi. For all round spiritual and material benefits it is a highly effective pooja. Any one can perform it.
If you cannot do a detailed worship, simply worship the Sri Yantra 108 times with the simple Devi Mantra:
“Om Aim Hreem Shreem Sri Lalita Tripurasundari Padukam Poojayami Namah”
Or better still with the Panchadasakshari Mantra, which is one of the greatest mantras of Devi and next only to the Shodasi Mantra:

“Ka E i La Hreem – Ha Sa Ka Ha La Hreem – Sa Ka La Hreem”
Listen to this mantra:

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.
Click to see picture.
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.
Lalita holds five flowery arrows, noose, goad and bow. The noose represents attachment, the goad represents repulsion, the sugarcane bow represents the mind and the flowery arrows are the five sense objects.

Sri Chakra (Sri Yantra) Pooja

The Nava Avaranas (Nine Corridors) of the Sri Yantra
Sri Chakra worship is one of the most guarded secrets of tantra and the Sri Yantra is the most guarder Yantra.
Nairutaicha Ganeshanaam Sooryam Vayuvya eevacha
Eeshane Vishnu Agneye Shivamchaiva prapoojayet
When you sit facing the east and with the tip of the top triangle pointing at you, at the bottom right hand side corner of the Shreechakra is guarded by Lord Ganesha. The bottom left hand side corner is guarded by Lord Surya. The top left side corner is guarded by Lord Vishnu and the top right corner of the Shreechakra is guarded by Lord Shiva. They must be worshipped before starting the Pooja of the Nava-Avaranas.
After that the eight primordial directions are guarded by the eight Lokapalas. Indra guards the East, Agni guards the South East, Yama guards the South, Nirriti guards the South West, Varuna guards the West, Vayu guards the North East, Soma guards the North and Ishana guards the North East.

Shreechakra Navavarana Pooja as per the Khadgamala vidhi
The basic Rules: Devi worship must be done only after taking bath and wearing clean clothes. 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 > Click to see picture.
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,
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.
When you sit facing the east and with the tip of the top triangle pointing at you, at the bottom right hand side corner of the Shreechakra resides Lord Ganesha. The bottom left hand side corner resides Lord Surya. The top left side corner resides Lord Vishnu and the top right corner of the Shreechakra resides Lord Shiva. They must be worshipped before starting the Pooja of the Nava-Avaranas.
After that the eight primordial directions are guarded by the eight Lokapalas. Indra guards the East, Agni guards the South East, Yama guards the South, Nirriti guards the South West, Varuna guards the West, Vayu guards the North East, Soma guards the North and Ishana guards the North East.

Shodasa Upacharas
In the ritualistic Hindu Vedic Poojas the deity is worshiped by offering 16 services known as the Shodasa Upacharas.
Pooja actually has a tow fold puorpose. One is the Baahya-Pooja or the rituals we perform outwardly for the Deity like offering flowers and fruits etc. It is an expression of our faith and reverence. Worship of God in any form in any way you like is good as it reduces the negative side of your Karma and improves the positive effects. Doing it in a systematic time tested ritualistic manner is better as it gives better results. It also gives you discipline and better satisfaction & peace of mind.
The pictures and idols of the deities whom we worship in this ritualistic way neither wear the flowers we offer nor eat the fruits. We do get some satisfaction of having offered something to the deity. But apart from that there is a deeper and greater spiritual significance behind the rituals and that is why they were prescribed and practiced by millions of our ancient seers. Understanding this is known as Antah-Pooja.
Baahya Pooja is your formula. Antah Pooja is understanding and applying the formula to get better results and achieve greater heights.
In the Bhavanopanishat sutras 28 to 43 describe the philosophy behind the 16 Upacharas in Devi worship. The same is applicable other Deity worships also.

The Shodasa (16) Upacharas
1. Avahana – Welcoming the deity.
Sutra 28. “Bahyantahkaranam roopagrahana yogyataasti tyaavahanam”
The human soul finds its identity through the antarendriys and the baahyendriyas. So avahana of the deity is inviting their Devine form.
2. Asanam – Offering seat.
Sutra 29. “Tasya baahyaantahkaranaanaamekaroopa vishaya grahamaasanam”
Controling the 14 senses like the gyanendriyas, the karmendriyas, manas, buddhi, chitta and ahankara and accepting everything in the world as Devi is the symbolic gesture of offering a seat at your Pooja place to the Devi.
3. Padyam – Washing the feet.
Sutra 30. “Rakta shukla padaikikaranam paadyam”
Devi recides in the sadhakas heart. Her prakasha shakti uniting with the atma shakti forms the shukla bindu representing fire. The vimarsha shakti uniting with the shukla bindu forms the rakta bindu representing the moon. The two of them uniting together form the mishra bindu representing the sun, which is the source of creation. Devi’s right leg represents the shukla bindu and her left leg represents the rakta bindu. Hence by washing and worshiping her feet we invoke the 3 primordial forces of creation – the sun, moon and the fire.
4. Aarghyam – Washing the hands.
Sutra 31. “Ujjwala daamodaanusandhanamarghyam”
Recognising the atma as Devi and purifying it is represented by washing Her hands.
5. Achamanam – Offering water to drink (to wash mouth).
Sutra 32. “Swachhamswatasiddhamityaachamanam”
It is recognising that the impure is purified by worshiping Her.
6. Snanam – Bathing.
Sutra 33. “Chichaddramayi sarvanga pravaranam snanam”
The Kundalini Shakti lying dormant in our body at the Mooladhara Chakra is raised by yogic practices to the Sahasra Chakra. Once united with the Sahasra it causes an Amrita Varasha (rain of divine nectar) which bathes and purifies the 72000 Nadis in the human body. Offering snanam to the Deity is symbolic of this Amrita Varsha.
7.Vastram – Offering clothes.
Sutra 34. “Chidagni swaroopa paramanandashakti sphuranam vastram”
The human form and its beauty are a reflection of Her Devine effulgence. Offering and decorating the Deity with clothes is a recognition of this.
8. Yagyopaveetam – Offering sacred thread.
Sutra 35. “Brahmanaadi Brahmasutram yagyopaveetam”
Of the 72000 Nadis in our body, the Shushumna Nadi is the most important one as it it is through this that the Kundalini rises. Hence it is also called Brahma Nadi – that which bestows the knowledge of the Ultimate Para Brahman. Recognising this we symbolically offer a sacred thread to the Deity.
This is also the reason we recite the following mantra at the time of Upanayanam, the sacred thread cerimony.
“Yagnopaveetam paramam pavitram prajapatheh yat sahajam purasthath ayushyam agriyam pratimuncha subram yagnopaveetam bhalam asthu tejah”.
“The best among those that purify, that which emerged along with the four-faced Brahma at the time of creation that which bestows life and prominence- I wear that sacred thread. Let it confer on me both knowledge and power”.
Shodasa Upacharas
9. Aabharanam – Offering ornaments.
Sutra 36. “Swavyatirikta vastu sangarahita smaranam vibhooshanam”.
Recognising that we are part of the Divinity and the outer ornaments we wear are only attachments of maya, offering our ornaments to the Deity is a symbolic gesture of renouncing the worldly attachments.
10. Gandham – Offering Sandalwood paste.
Sutra 37. “Satsangaparipooritaanu smaranam gandham”
Sandalwood paste is considered to be symbol of purity. Hence offering sandalwood paste is a gesture of recognising that the Divinity and the self are purity personified.
11. Pushpam – Offering flowers and doing pooja.
Sutra 38. “Ahimsa prathama pushpam, pushpamindriyanigraha
dayakshmagyanapushpam panchapushpam tatahpara”
Ahimsa or non violence, indriya nigraha or control over the senses, daya or kindness, kshama or forgiveness and gyana or knowledge are called the pancha pushpas or five flowers with which we can control our ahamkara or ego and surrender to God. Hence worshipping the Deity with flowers is symbolic of controlling these and surrendering to God.
12. Dhoopam – Offering perfumed Incense.
Sutra 39. “Teshameva sarvadasweekaranam dhoopam”
Dhoopam is perfumed incense smoke. The pleasures which our indriyas or senses give us are like its perfumed smoke which vanishes quickly. Offering Dhoopam is recognizing this and is an undertaking to control our sensory pleasures.
13. Deepam – Offering a lighted lamp.
Surta 40 “Pavanaavachyisnordhyajwalana sachhidulkkakashadeho deepah”
The effulgence of the Eternal Bhahman in union with Vayu is the Devine-light spread throughout the world. Offering a lighted lamp means considering our soul as the Divine light, which is ready for union with God.
14. Naivedyam - Offering food.
Sutra 41. “Samastayaataayaata varjanam naivedyam”
Overcoming the temptations of the indriyas and offering and renouncing our worldly pleasures and desires is the significance of naivedyam.
15. Taamboolam – Offering beetle leaves with caustic and beetle nut.
Sutra 42. “Avasthaatrayaikeekaranam tamboolam”
Tamboolam consits of beetle leaves, beetle nut and caustic represent the three avasthas or states of the human being – jagrad, swapna and shushupti or waking, dreaming and sleeping states. Offering Tamboolam is the effort to go beyond these states – i.e. to the nirvikalpa state.
16. Pradakshina Namaskaram – Circumambulation and salutation of the deity.
Sutra 43. Moolaadharaadi brahmabila paryantam, brahma randhraadi moolaadhara paryantam gataagata roopena praadakshinyam”
The Pranavayu in our body, which can at best be described as the “life supporting Cosmic force”, keeps rotating from the Moolaadhara Chakra to Sahasra Chakra and back through the Shushumna Naadi. recognising and saluting His Force is the act of Pradakshina Namaskaram or Circumambulation and salutation of the deity.
A Vedic ritual is never a meaningless act. Each and every one of them has a deep rooted spiritual philosophic significance.

Lunar Phases & the Nitya DevisThe worship of the Nitya Devis connected with the phases of the moon is an important aspect of Tantrak worship.
The Sun rules our soul and the Moon rules our mind. These two planets cause the lunar phases. According to Rishi Parashara, the Avatara of Lord Rama is from the Sun and that of Krishna is from the Moon. Indian mythology accords the status of a Devata to Sun and Moon in the celestial court of Lord Indra. The moon is one of the most important planets in astrology. Apart from judging a person from the Lagna, Vedic astrology studies the planetary positions from the moon also. New Moon to Full Moon and back, the changing phases of the Moon rules the mind and our emotions. But Moon plays a lot deeper role in our lives than that.
According to the Indian sashtras like Lalitopakhyanam, Tantrarajatantra, Dakshinamurti Samhita, Vasistha Samhita, Kamakala Vilasam and Bhairava Yamalam; the following is the spiritual and cosmic significance of the phases of the moon.
The Moon has 16 kalas, or phases. Out of these 15 are visible to us and the 16th is beyond our visibility. The 16 kalas are:
1.Amrita,
2.Manada,
3.Poosha,
4.Tusthi,
5.Pusthi,
6.Rati,
7.Dhruti,
8.Sasichini,
9.Chandrika,
10.Kanta,
11.Jyostna,
12.Shree,
13.Preeti,
14.Angada,
15.Poorna and
16.Poornamruta.
These 16 kalas are ruled by the 16 Nitya Devis. They are called Shodasa Nityas. They are:
1.Maha Tripura Sundari,
2.Kameswari,
3.Bhagamalini,
4.Nityaklinna,
5.Bherunda,
6.Vanhivasini,
7.Maha Vajreswari,
8.Shivadooti (Roudri),
9.Twarita,
10.Kulasundari,
11.Nitya,
12.Neelapataka,
13.Vijaya,
14.Sarvamangala,
15.Jwalamalini and
16.Chidroopa (Chitra).
Out of these, the first one, Maha Tripura Sundari is the Devi Para Shakti herself, and hence the kala ruled by her is not visible to the normal mortals. Hence we see only the other 15 kalas or phases ruled by the other nityas. In the Sri Chakra these 15 nityas are present in the innermost circle, and the Devi is in the central bundu.
These 15 Nityas rule the famous 15 letters Devi mantra known as Panchadasakshari Mantra: Ka E Aie La Hreem Ha Sa Ka Ha La Hreem Sa Ka La Hreem
These 15 Nityas in the form of the 15 Tithis (Phases) have two aspects each – Prakashamsa, which rules the day portion of the Tithi, and Vimarshamsa, which rules the night part of the Tithi. At night they collect the divine nectar and during the day they release it.
On Poornima or full moon day all the 15 Nityas are in the moon and the moon is shining brightly. On the 1st Thithi after the Poornima, i.e., Pratipada, one Nitya leaves the moon and goes to the sun and the moon is reduced slightly in size. On the next Dwiteeya Tithi another Nitya leaves the moon and goes to the sun and the moon is further reduced in size. This way they leave one by one till the moon becomes totally dark on the 15th day, which is called Amavasya or the new moon day. This is known as Krishna Paksha or the waning phase.
After Amavasya they return one by one on each Tithi and the moon starts shining again till its full on the Poornima when the last Nitya returns to it. This is called Shukla Paksha. Kameswari to Chitra are the Nityas ruling the Krishna Paksha Tithis from Pratipada to Amavasya. In Shukla Paksha the order of the Nityas is reversed, i.e., Chitra to Kameswari.
The Nitya of the Asthami or 8th Tithi, Twarita, is common and constant to both the Pakshas. Hence she adorns the crown of Devi.
The inner triangle of Sri Chakra is known as the Sarva Siddhiprada Chakra and the Nityas are next only to Tripura Sundari in importance. For your information, Kameswari is Goddess Parvati, Vajreswari is Maha Lakshmi and Bhagamalini is Goddess Saraswati !!
One Krishna Paksha and one Shukla Paksha form a 30-day lunar month. 12 such months form a 360-day lunar year. Multiplied by 2 (the day and night aspects of the Nityas/Tithis) we have 720 aspects of the Nitya Devis in a year. This way, they rule the day, the night, the days, months, seasons and the years. Furthermore, each aspect of a Nitya rules 100 Nadis in our body. This way they rule the 72000 Nadies in our body, with ever changing moods and physical results in human lives.
The Nityas or Eternities of Lalita represent the fifteen lunar days or tithis of the waxing Moon. Each has her own yantra, mantra, tantra and prayogas or ritual applications. The full circle of the Nityas also represents the 21,600 breaths a human being takes in a full day and night. As such, the Nityas are the Kalachakra, or Wheel of Time.
The 15 Nityas are modifications of Lalita with her three gunas and her five elements of aether, air, fire, water and earth. As the moon remains itself, though appearing differently according to phase, so too does Lalita. Each Nitya has her own vidya (that is mantra), yantra and group of energies (Shaktis).
The 15 lunar tithis, are to be regarded as identical with the fifteen Nityas (Kameshvari to Citra). The sixteenth Kala called Sadakhya should be viewed as one with Lalita or the Supreme Deity Herself. In other words, one has to feel that what appears in Kalacakra is nothing but an expression of what exists eternally as Nityas in the supreme Sri Cakra itself. The tithi-cakra or the wheel of time is constantly revolving and the Sri Cakra is within it and not without. It should also be remembered that from the standpoint of an esoteric yogin the tithis are in the last analysis to be identified with the 21600 shvasas (breaths) supposed to be the average number of breaths per day of a normal human being.”
Hence Lalita or Tripurasundari is the 16th day or full moon, with her 15 digits. Each of the Nityas has a certain number of arms, the totality of arms (= rays) of the whole circle being 108. Because any unit of time is taken as a microcosm or parallel of any other valid unit, each of the fifteen Nityas thus has 1,440 breaths. This identity between space, time, Tripurasundari and the individual is elaborated at great length in the Tantraraja Tantra.
The Nityas are the vowels of the Sanskrit alphabet and are identical with both time and space. For example, if the number of tattvas or consonants (36) are multiplied by the 16 Nityas the number of letters is 576. The multiples of this number provide the number of years in the different Yugas. So the circle of the matrikas and the Nityas is identical with the sidereal zodiac as well as mantra.

Mudras used in Pooja
Mudras used in Hindu worship
The word Mudra is derived from the Sanskrit words Mud+Dhra, or bliss+dissolving – meaning that which dissolves duality and brings together the deity and the devotee. Mudras are gestures performed with the hands and are used to convey various feelings, or expressions or meanings. (Recently the the famous Australian cricketer Greg Chappell showed the notorious “middle finger mudra” to the Ganguly fans at Kolkata!!).
The use of the Mudras is quite common in the Hindu Poojas, Tantric worships, Yoga and also in Classical Indian dances. In Hindu iconography, the deities are often depicted with their hands making various Mudras – like the twin gestures of dispelling fears and granting boons. Various deities have several specific Mudras which are associated with them. They are used by the practitioner for various purposes – like activating the various nerve centers, to convey a feeling or to appease a deity etc.
Each finger represents one of the five elements—the thumb is agni (fire), the forefinger is vayu (air), the middle finger is akash (ether), the ring finger is prithvi (earth) and the little finger is jal (water).
Please note that in Natya Sastra (classical dance) and in Yoga also there are several similarly named Mudras which are at times quite different from the Pooja Mudras. For example the Yoni Mudra used in Yoga is totally different from the Yoni Mudra used in Pooja.
A lot of people want to know and use the Mudras during Pooja and Tantrik worship but do not know the correct ones. We are giving bellow 40 of the most commonly used Mudras in the various Poojas and Tantric worships so that those interested can learn them an practice. Click on each name to see the picture of the Mudra in a new window. These are the correct Mudras, but in some sects there are minor variations.

How to do Sadhana? Procedure ? Rules ? How to take Sankalp? How to do Anusthaan?
There are many types of Anusthaan. In Laghu Anusthaan, 24000 Mantra chantings are done ( eg. 27 rosary rounds in 9 days) and 240 aahutis are offered in holy Yagya. In Madhyam Anusthaan, 1.25 Lakh Mantra chantings are done (eg. 33 rosary rounds in 40 days) and 1250 aahutis are offered in holy Yagya. In Maha Anusthaan, 24 Lakh Mantra chantings are done (66 rosary rounds in 1 year) and One-tenth aahutis are offered in holy Yagya. One may also perform Anusthaan of 51000 or 5 lakh rosary rounds.
Anusthaan is a concentrated effort. You should try to complete the Anusthaan in as less number of days as possible for maximum benefit. An Anusthaan is normally done for completion of some task, or to solve some problem. The longer you delay the anusthaan, the more will be the delay in achieving results. Moreover, if you extend it for more time, then there is a chance of making more mistakes, breaking of celibacy (mental & physical) or some other strict rule. You should start the anusthaan on a auspicious day.
You should follow following rules during Anusthaan -
a. Start on the same time everyday. Perform same number of rosary rounds daily. Perform Anusthaan at a pure, satvik place in a pure, quite environment.
b. Eat pure vegetarian food during Anusthaan & Sadhana period. Try to avoid onion, garlic etc. Eat food once a day.
c. Maintain complete celibacy (mental & physical) during Anusthaan period. If your brahmacharya (celibacy) breaks during Anusthaan/Sadhana period, then you should stop the Sadhana/Anusthaan and restart the entire Sadhana/Anusthaan again afresh.
d. Perform Guru Poojan and chant one rosary round of Guru Mantra. Then perform the required daily number of rosary rounds of the concerned Mantra. Then chant one rosary round of Guru Mantra again. The Ghee/Oil (Depending on Diety) Deepak should be lighted continuously during the entire Anusthaan period. Ghee Deepak should be lighted for Anusthaan of Guru Mantra.
e. Mentally meditate on the form of the Diety and Gurudev during all the days of Anusthaan.
f. Don't cut hairs or nails during the Anusthaan Period. One should also refrain from shaving.
Normally, before chanting the mantra for Anusthaan/Sadhana, one needs to make a Sankalp (pledge) by taking water in one’ right hand palm saying the following in any language -
Myself "name" son/daughter/wife of "father/mother/husband's name" , belonging to "your gotra or surname" gotra , disciple of Pujya Gurudev am making this pledge by taking Divine blessings and Diksha from my Pujya Gurudev on "date & time" at "place name" that I will perform "sadhna name" Sadhana by chanting "number" rosary rounds for "number" days to solve "problem details" problem. May Pujya Gurudev stay with me all the time and guide and protect me.
After, this let the water flow to the ground.
This Sankalp is an agreement between yourself and the divine deity. After taking Sankalp, you should perform Sadhana for the required number of days at the same time. There should NOT be any break of even a single day after taking Sankalp. You need to take Sankalp only on the first day.
You also need to perform Hawan (Holy Fire), Tarpan & Maarjan after completion of Anusthaan. Havan is done for appeasement of Gods (Devataas). Tarpan is done for offering to & appeasement of "Updevataas" (Gods) and "Pitras" (Ancestors). Maarjan is done for appeasement of other important yonis; and to remove impurities and purify oneself. Maarjan also removes bad effects of Rajogun and Tamogun.
You should offer 12500 (10% of Total Mantra chanting) Aahutis (offerings) in the holy fire of havan.
You should suffix the deity's mantra (which you chanted 1.25 lakh times) with the word "Swahaa". With each chanting of the mantra, you should offer Aahuti in the holy fire. You may do havan in two shifts, if it is not possible for you to complete it together. The item to be offered for Aahuti is different for each Sadhana/Mantra/Deity and purpose.
Normally, you may use "mango plant" wood sticks in the Yagya. However different types of woods are used in different Sadhanas. You can place a camphor between dry sticks and then light it. You should preferably use a "Havan Kund" for performing havan. Different kinds of Hawan Kunds are prescribed for different Sadhanas, purposes and Deities. It should be made of copper. If copper is not available, then you may use any other pure metal container. For general purposes, you should use a squarish shape havan kund. The size of Havankund should be 9" X 9" X 9" or 15" X 15" X 15" .
You should perform Guru Poojan before performing Havan. You should also chant at least 4 rosary rounds of Guru Mantra. Then, you should perform Panchopchaar poojan (worship) of the Sadhana Yantra & photo of deity with Snaan( bathe), Tilak (mark on forehead), Pushp (flowers), Dhoop (incense), deep (light) etc.
Tarpan should be done for 1250 (10% of Hawan) mantra chantings. You should suffix the deity's mantra (which you chanted 1.25 lakh times) with the word "Tarpayaami". With each chanting of the mantra, you should offer a mixture of milk & water on either Yantra or Idol.
Maarjam should be done for 125 (10% of Tarpan) mantra chantings. You should suffix the deity's mantra (which you chanted 1.25 lakh times) with the word "Maarjyaami". With each chanting of the mantra, you should offer a mixture of milk & water on either Yantra or Idol.
It is recommended to perform Havan, Tarpan & Maarjan after completion of Anusthaan. However, if, you are unable to perform Havan for any reason then you may chant an additional 125 malas (rosary rounds) of the deity's mantra as a substitute by taking a sankalp.
You should mention in the sankalp that - "I am chanting 125 rosary rounds of the mantra as the Havan Poornaahuti." You should perform Guru Poojan and chant 4 rosary rounds of Guru Mantra before starting these 125 rosary rounds.
After completion of 125 rosary rounds or havan/yagya, you should do the following :
a. Chant one rosary round of Guru Mantra
b. Mentally seek forgiveness from revered Gurudev for the mistakes (known or unknown) which you might have committed during Mantra chanting and request for His Aashirvaad and blessings.
Similarly for Tarpan, you may chant additional 12 rosary rounds & for Maarjan additional 3 rosary rounds.
You should mentally pray and meditate on the form of revered Gurudev before starting the Mantra chanting. You should also mentally take permission from pujya Gurudev before starting the Mantra chanting and request for His blessings & Aashirwaad to obtain success.
After the completion of Mantra chanting, you should mentally seek forgiveness from revered Gurudev for the mistakes (known or unknown) which you might have committed during Mantra chanting and request for His Aashirvaad and blessings.
If you are a woman, you should stop the Anusthaan/Sadhana during the monthly periods, and restart it after taking bath on completion of periods (after 5 days).
If you feel that you need to go somewhere which might lead to an interruption, then you should first finish that task, and perform Anushtaan with Sankalp later. In the meantime, you may chant the Mantra given to you by Diksha using the mala.
Using Mala-
You should hold the rosary in your right hand while chanting the Mantra. You should take rosary in right hand between Ring-Finger and Middle-Finger and move it using Thumb and Middle-Finger. You should place your hand adjacent to the heart. The rosary should not touch your leg or ground. Either you should place your left hand to avoid this, or you may put rosary in Gomukhi (cotton cloth bag) whilest chanting. Your index finger (fore-finger) should not touch the rosary. You should never let rosary touch the ground even when you are not performing Sadhana. It should always be kept wrapped in a clean cloth.
There is a separator bead in every rosary. Basically it is the central bead at which the thread containing beads is joined/tied together. This is normally marked by a different color thread on it. You may easily identify the separator bead. You should start moving the bead from the bead next to separator bead. You should not start from the separator bead itself. The beads should move along with the mantra chanting in direction towards you (clockwise direction). You should move one bead with each chant of complete mantra. In the moving process, once you reach the separator bead after finishing the bead before the separator bead, you should overturn the rosary with your right hand, making the last bead before separator (one you used just now) the first bead after separator. This is called as completing one complete round of the rosary. And then you should start chanting again with this bead as the first one.
Taking Sankalp/Promise for someone else -
Myself "name" son/daughter/wife of "your father/mother/husband's name" , belonging to "your gotra or surname" gotra , disciple of Pujya Gurudev am making this pledge by taking Divine blessings and Diksha from my Pujya Gurudev on "date & time" at "place name" that I will perform "sadhna name" Sadhana by chanting "number" rosary rounds for "number" days on behalf of "person name" son/daughter/wife of "father/mother/husband's name" , belonging to "gotra or surname" gotra ,resident of "place name" to solve "problem details" problem. May Pujya Gurudev stay with us all the time and guide and protect us. May all the benefits of this Sadhana go to "person name".
Note -
Do not sit on bed & do Sadhana.
Sit on ground with Proper Aasan.
You can open/ close your eyes during Sadhana. When open see the Lingam(concentrate) or look at deitys Photo.

Dhruv Bhura

Mantras For Protection – Shatrubaadha Nivaran Mantra
The fear of the known rather than the unknown is more often than not brushed aside by most of us in our daily lives. The insecurity of human soul, its own mind games that we strive to supercede, our inherent desire to overpower the obstacles strewn across our path to achievement continue to fuel our passion to succeed and finally we endeavor to reach our individually set goals in this material world. Our strategy for this plan is almost foggy and we seldom attempt to adjust our lens so that we can clearly define our targets and for this journey we fail to include any loyal method of back up or protection through adversity.
The Mantras For Protection – Shatrubaadha Nivaran Mantra is one such answer for all our quests of supremacy that we seek over our hostile, often harmful circumstances that we are forced to fear that finally ends in our meek surrender to these detrimental currents in our calm and pond-like life. This phenomenal album contains all such remedial Mantras that are powerful enough to protect our humble self and provide valuable guidance that we continue to reach for our very existence.
Mantras like Shatru Mitra Kar Mantra, the Shatru Mitra Kar Saptashati Mantra, the ancient Kunjika Stotram, the Shatru Vidhwansini Stotram, Sankashtanashak Ganapati Stotram, the Vedic Bagala Mukhi Dhyana and Mantra, Hanumat Langoolastra Stotram, the powerful Narsimha Stotram finally ending with the illuminating chanting of the Shanti Path that guides us for attaining peace within ourselves. This is truly a one-of-its kind album that combines a lot of answers in the form of ancient Mantras that actually elevate our soul to the higher planes of self-attainment.

Nrsimha Kavacha Lyrics – Narasimha Kavacham Lyrics
Sri Narad uvaca, Indradi deva vrndesa tatesvara jagat pate,
Mahavisnor nrsimhasya kavacam bruhi me prabho
Yasya prapathanad vidvan trilokya vijayi bhavet
Sri Brahmovaca, srnu narada vaksyami putra srestha tapodhana
Kavacam Narasimhasya trailokya vijayabhidam
Yasya prapathanad vagmi trailokya vijayi bhavet
Srastham jagatam vatsa pathanad dharanad yatah
Laksmir jagat trayam pati samharta ca mahesvarah
Pathanad dharanad deva babhuvus ca digisvarah
Brahma mantra myam vaksye bhutadi vinivarakam
Yasya prasadad durvasas trailokya vijayi munih
Pathanad dharanad yasya sasta ca krodha bhairavah
Trailokya vijayasyasa kavacasya prajapatih
Rsis Chandas ca gayatri nrsimho devata vibhuh
Ksraum bijam me sirah pati candra varno maha manuh
"Ugram Viram Maha Visnum Jvalantam Sarvatomukham
Nrsimham Bhisanam Bhadram Mrtyu Mrtyum Namamy Aham"
Dva Trimsad aksaro mantro mantra rajah sura drumah
Kantham patu dhruvam ksraum hrd bhagavate caksusi mama
Narasimhaya ca jvala maline patu mastakam
Dipta damstraya ca tatha agni netraya ca nasikam
Sarva Rakso ghnaya sarva bhuta vinasanaya ca
Sarva jvara vinasaya daha daha paca dvayam
Raksa Raksa sarva mantra svaha patu mukham mama
Taradi Ramacandraya namah payad gudam mama
Klim Payat pani yugmam ca taram namah padam tatah
Narayanaya parsvam ca am hrim kraum ksraum ca hum phat
Varaksarah katim patu om namah bhagavate padam
Vasudevaya ca prstham klim krsnaya uru dvaram
Klim krsnaya sada patu januni ca manuttamah
Klim glaum klim syamalangaya namah payat pada dvaram
Ksraum narasimhaya ksraum ca sarvangam me sadavatu
Iti te kathitam vatsa sarva mantraugha vigraham
tava snehan myakhyatam pravaktavyam na kasyacit
Guru pujam vidhayatha grhniyat kavacam tatah
sarva punya yuto bhutva sarva siddhi yuto bhavet
Satam astottaram caiva purascarya vidhih smrtah
Havanadin dasamsena krtva sadhaka sattamah
Tatas tu siddha kavacah punyatma madanopaman
Sparddham uddhuya bhavane laksmir vani vaset tatah
Puspanjalyastakam dattva mulenaiva pathet sakrt
Api Varsa sahasranam pujayah phalam apnuyat
Bhurje vilkhya gutikam svarnastham dharayed yadi
Kanthe va daksine bahau narasimho bhavet svayam
Yosid vama bhuje caiva puruso daksine kare
Vibhryat kavacam punyam sarva siddhi yuto bhavet
Kaka vandhya ca ya nari mrta vatsa ca ya bhavet
Janma vandhya nasta putra bahu putravati bhavet
Kavacasya prasadena jivan mukto bhaven narah
Trilokyam ksobhayaty eva trailokya vijayi bhavet
Bhuta preta pisacas ca raksasa danava ca ye
Tam drstva prapalayante desad desantaram dhruvam
Yasmin gehe ca kavacam grame va yadi tisthati
Tam desantu parityajya prayanti catidurantah
