Beginning this issue, we will be covering the Dasha mAhA vidhyAs. Kali, the first of all the vidhyAs is the primary theme for this month. While we are glad to bring out the mantra and AvaraNa pUjA vidhAnams of the dasha mahA vidhyAs, we would like to caution the upAsakAs that these CANNOT be taken lightly or like any other mantra. As the tantras rightly caution, this path is like walking on a sword and can only be ventured into by the Grace of the GurunAthA.
The upAsana karma of these dEvatAs demands strict yamA and niyamAs and also ardent faith on the Guru and the dEvatA. It is important to understand the meaning of the mantra, the physical representation of the dEvatA, and contemplation on the deeper aspects of the same. These can only be provided by the Guru and by the power of the sAdhanA.
The secretive mantras of these fierceful dEvatAs have been given to aid the upAsakAs (who has the mantra adhikArAs for these dEvatAs) to reference them together while performaning pUjAs. These mantras cannot be taken lightly and readers are strongly adviced to check with their Guru’s prior to start practicing any mantra or procedure as detailed in this issue.
The mantra japa kramA of dakShinA kAlikA, AvaraNa pUjA kramA, hRudaya, paTalA, karpUrAdi stOtra, kakArAdi shatanAma stoTra, and kakArAdi sahasranAma stOtrA are invluded in this issue.
ShrI yOgAmbA samEta AtmAnandanAthA (Shri Ramesh Kutticad) was kind enough to share the dakShiNakAlikA svarUpa vimarshanam, vaishAkhA naimittika prakaranam, and also an excellent research article on Sundari and Kali. This issue bringsforth the final part of the 64 upacAra meditation and we hope that the upAsakAs find it helpful.
Lalithai vEdam sarvam.
