Commentary by Śrī Bhāskararāya is mentioned in the description. Thank you for the link. I will study this book and relevant material and translate when time allows. The other book may be alluding to the same material as well. The grāndhika bhāṣa is literally Sanskrit and is difficult to understand unlike the lokika/vyavahārika bhāṣa that we normally speak and understand. I will do my best to translate into English.

Thank you. Swamijis has been spreading this sooktam for many years now. Thanks to his zeal of spreading what he calls "pratyangira rukkulu" many around the globe are supposedly reciting it. Your translation should surely help them. I have read Swamijis translation in his "pratyangira sadhana" book. It is good translation but too short & in grandhika basha :)

Krishnaji, Please check this link below for the telugu book "Srividya Panchadasa Khadgamala" by Sri Varanasi Venkateswarulu garu. Pl. read the description completely in which they mention that Srividyaranya commented on Khadgaadi malas and did Mantrodharas for all. There is another bigger commentary on secrets of Khadgamala(Khadgamala Rahasyalu) by Sri Nori Subramanya Shastriji : For some strange reasons all telugu commentators use telugu grandhika basha which I struggle hard to get through. Thats why I requested you for an English translation :) Given large number of initiated and uninitiated members recite Khadgamala daily, it might help all of them if you can find time to translate Sri vidyaranya vyakhya for atleast the first mala/Khadgamala/Shuddha shakti mala. Thanks in advance :)

Can you please share the source where you got this information Swati ji? Regarding the Devi Khaḍgamālā vyākhya by śrī vidyārṇava yeti.

Very well described! Thank you! We hope to provide the sūktam with the explanation. Maybe sometime this year when time permits. The kṛtya-s themselves can help evade any problems and also protect us. They can be used to destroy enemies as well. The book by Swami ji explains them very well!

In most cases, it is just bad karma extracting it's due from us. In some rare cases, it is possible that someone may have performed some black magic and we are seeing the bad effects of it. One way to tell is that it happens on most vulnerable family members. The experience is almost simultaneous or in quick succession. Very strange unexplainable stroke of bad luck etc. One will also come across and witness certain signs that may indicate this. Whatever the case maybe, by reciting the initiated mantras of any deity, one may escape from the bad effects of black magic. It is better to choose higher deity mantras and perform the appropriate procedures during the mantra japa. This may mitigate the ill effects to some extent. If the faith is very strong, then nothing will pinch us. It might be best to consult with a guru and explain the situation and seek a remedy, if available.

Any god/goddess will protect you - if you are are a sincere devotee. However, If you are 1)in gravest danger needing highest protection and 2)qualified sadhaka(with sufficient sadhana balam) then Sri Siddeswarananda Bharati reccomends the Sri Pratyangira Sooktam from Pippalaada Shaaka of Atharvana Veda. Here is Swamiji reciting the Sri Pratyangira Sooktam: . This sooktam is said to not only protect but will destroy the enemies who did Kritya Prayogam. Disclaimer: I am not of follower of Sri Siddeswarananda Bharatiji nor do I recite the above sooktam. I am only sharing the information. Swamiji mentioned many times and many of his followers recite it regularly. Get initiated, learn the meaning of Riks of Sooktam and practice sincerely.

Thanks Krishnaji. Translation of Sri Vidyaranyas Vyakhya on Shuddha Shakti Mala to English (more importantly the Mantrodhara part) will be great. Just the first mala(khadgamala) commentary will do. Maybe publish an English translation as Amazon Kindle Book?

can anyone tell workshipping which god or chanting which mantra will be the most effective in countering the influence of black magic? also is there a definite way to ascertain if one is indeed under the influence pf black magic? thank you

It is a weapon to destroy negativity and all obstacles. It will not remove our personal goals. We need to reset our goals towards spirituality, seek and understand the scriptural knowledge in the right perspective with deep contemplation and analysis. Once the mind is convinced and our goals are clear, then this pallava mantra can remove all obstacles towards our progress.

It can definitely be used for all protection purposes and reversing black magic, winning over competition etc.

It represents all the triads. She is the mother of all three realms, She is the cause of Creation, Preservation, Destruction etc.

So phat also destroys our personal goals to set us free from maya ilusion, right?

Since war seems to be a threat its great that you share this info to protect ourselves. Can we use this puja to protect nature? Chemical weapons and missil can cause a great damage to our enviroment.

Noted. Also, what does tryambake mean? - the three eyed one OR the mother of three worlds? Thank you.
