Śrī parāṣoḍaśī Aṣṭa-viṃśadyakṣara Mantraḥ (श्री पराषोडशी अष्ट विंशद्यक्षर मन्त्रः)
Source :- Prapañcasāra sāra saṅgraḥ.
Purpose :- Supremacy over all triads, self-realization and liberation.
Pre-requisites :- Any forms of Ṣoḍaśī, especially Mahāṣoḍaśī is highly recommended.
Special Note :- Śrī parāṣoḍaśī is associated with the ūrdhvāmnāya (Upper or higher) tradition of Śrī Vidya. The popular kadi mata (kadi tradition) extolled by the Paraśurāma Kalpa Sūtrās, does not mention this mantra and the Mahāṣoḍaśī mantra itself is considered supreme. However, some schools such as the ūrdhvāmnāya tradition of Śrī Vidya, prescribe this mantra as the liberation giver. Usually, this comes after completing the Mahāṣoḍaśī mantra and acquiring the Mahāpāduka mantras associated with the pūrṇābhiṣeka rituals. The purpose of this mantra, is clearly for attaining liberation through the dissolution of all triads and diads and unification with the singular reality.
