Good evening Guruji Mother Kali is my favorite devata and I love the Goddess dearly. I want to worship her through her yantra. However, that task has been for me quite difficult since I have not been able to find a Kali Yantra Puja Vidhi that I can use as reference point. Nonetheless, I have read a lot and I have done a lot of research in order to learn as much as I can. Yet I still need help actually I need your help. This is what I know thus far with respect to the following Mother Kali yantra: https://i.pinimg.com/originals/2c/11/78/2c1178317e0c534971b7674d86535979.jpg I know the mantra associated with that yantra is: Krīm̐ Krīm̐ Krīm̐ Hūm̐ Hūm̐ Hrīm̐ Hrīm̐ Dakṣiṇe Kālike Krīm̐ Krīm̐ Krīm̐ Hūm̐ Hūm̐ Hrīm̐ Hrīm̐ Svāhā. I do not know who the petha devatas are. Could you help me Guruji Coming from the outside in: The Dwara Devatas are probably: Vaṭuka, Yoginī, Kṣetrapāla and Gaṇapati. Are there more Guruji? I assume that The Guardians of the 10 directions and their weapons are the same with any other yantra I know for sure the Bhurpura devatas are: East: Bhairavi, South-East: Mahabhairavi, South: Simhabhairavi, Sout-West: Dhumrabhairavi, West: Bhimabhairavi, North-West: Unmattabhairavi, North: Vashikaranabhairavi, North-East: Mohanabhairavi. For the flower petals, they are divided into two parts: top and bottom The top parts are probably inhabited by the Matrikas: Brahmani, Maheshvari, Kumari, Vaishnavi, Varahi, Indrani, Chamundi, and Chandi. The bottom parts are probably where the Bhairavas are found: Asithanga Bhairava, Ruru Bhairava, Chanda Bhairava, Krodha Bhairava, Unmatha Bhairava, Kapaala Bhairava, Bheeshana Bhairava, and Samhaara Bhairava. The dots that intersect between the flower petals I have actually no clue which devatas are there. The five triangles that’s where one can find the Kali Nityas: Kali, Kapalini, Kula, Kurukulla, Virodhini, Vipracitta, Ugra, Ugraprabha, Dipa, Nila, Ghana, Balaka, Matra, Mudra, and Mita. Bindu: Dakshine Kali.

The pedestal deities are generally different between two deities. The ynatra pūjas will also differ.

Today is both Lord Hayagrīva and the Divine Mother Gāyatrī devi jayanti. Thank you for providing the information on Lord Hayagrīva for the benefit of everyone on this auspicious day! We will definitely strive to provide more mantras and related stotras of Lord Hayagrīva and other Vaiṣṇava deities in future. Hopefully by next year, we may have an article to commemorate the jayanti day of both Lord Hayagrīva and Goddess Gāyatrī devi.

This has been corrected. Thank you for pointing out the error! It was pure oversight from my end.

Hello, thanks for publishing the mantra Hayagriva as it is known he is considered a teacher of Agastya Muni and Durvasa Rishi. Hayagriva also composed Lalita Sahasranam, and other hymns in honor of Heavenly Mother. Hayagriva was a teacher of Saraswati. Will you publish more Hayagriva mantras for acquiring spiritual knowledge for self-realization, and which would calm the senses, the mind and focus them on devotion to the mother. Thanks for the answer.

Good evening Guruji. I have a question concerning the pīṭha pūja in section 6. Yantra prāṇapratiṣṭhā vidhiḥ. Are the pīṭha devatās (pedestal deities) specific to Goddess Pratyangira yantra or could they also be used as pīṭha devatās for other yantras such as Goddess Mother Kali yantra like this one for example? https://i.pinimg.com/originals/2c/11/78/2c1178317e0c534971b7674d86535979.jpg

Krishna garu, In point no. 9 you have mentioned "56 lettered hayagriva mantra" , is it for the gayatri version ? or typo error. Kindly clarify please.

Different authors have explained this differently. I have written in my Vijnana Bhairava articles - "In a day (day and night consisting of 24 hours), a person inhales and exhales 21,600 times and this is the true mantra (ha at the time inhalation and sa at the time of exhalation. The continuous concentration on these subtle sounds gives rise to the inherent mantra ‘soham’ and this is known as a-japa, which means no japa. When the japa is happening inwardly and perpetually, where is the necessity of other mantra japas? 21600 breaths are meant for normal human beings."

Good day, good luck Varalakshmi Pooja and I want to ask you about Hamsa Mantra and your articles you wrote that - ,, haṁ represents exhalation of prāṇa and saḥ represents inhalation of prāṇa '' that is exhale - Ham, inhale - sa. But in Vijnana Bhairava Tantra in verse 155 it is written to do Hamsa mantra on the contrary, ie inhale - Ham, exhale - sa. How is it right? https://archive.org/details/vijnanabhairavtantra/page/n43/mode/2up ?

This mantra is valid, but the Viniyoga etc. might be different. I don't remember finding that information for this mantra or the other nava grahas with similar mantras.

Yes we intend to publish various mantras related to Śrī Tārā Devi. The document you referred is excellent and can be followed for Śrī Durga Sādhana.

Any major deity mantra can provide you all the benefits you seek. It is important that it should be aligned with breath and recited as many times as possible with full dedication. After a period of time, when the karmic influences get diluted, one may begin to see the benefits.
