In Upanishats both tripura and devi the uddara sequential revelation of Pancadasi the fifteen lettered mantra is found viz. Parasurama in his kalpasutra has hidden it, no direct reference is found. Generally Sri Bala Maha mantra is imparted along with Maha Ganapati mantra for the entry level initiate, then he proceeds to the Pancadasi Maha mantra — the fifteen lettered mantra.

In South Indian traditions the laghu Sodasi mantra- the sixteen lettered- is also imparted. Finally at purnabhisheka, Maha Sodasi mantra is imparted. Certain traditions prohibit the verbal transmission of the mantra Maha Sodasi by Sri Guru, he is directed to write in sand or paddy or rice on plate and immediately clear it and he can verbally pronounce the mantra on constant prayer from the disciple only once in small tone.

In tantras of Sri Kula the Gnanarnava and paramanandatantra reveal this mantra; this mantra is mentioned in the Srividya ratna sutras, attributed to Sri Gaudapada, the paramaguru of Bhagavat pada sankara, as of 28 letters.

The three kutas of pancadasi in the middle will have to be considered as three, instead of fifteen, to bring the count to sixteen. Thus justifying the name Sodasi given to this Maha mahtra.

Thus the name itself holds the identity of the number of bijas in this mantra. The sequence also is inferred by the numbers said above; by adding six and two the first eight bijas are realised, next three refers the pancadasi kutas and five to the bijas at the end. Any special status for this combination of bijas is there? Initiates in this Maha mantra think that this is an expansion of the pancadasi only. There is a very special reason behind this importance being given to this mantra.

We shall now explore into the meaning of this chain of bijas initially and their import on the sadhaka by this japa. Verbal meaning a. The traditional view The following is found in olden texts wherein the sequence of bijas is explained. The meditation of the mantra will follow the path of kamakala of which is creation, sustenance, prayer of the aspirant and final dissolution into the Parabrahman.

Following is whatsoever was grasped by the mind due to the grace of Sri Guru. This is kriya sakti. Since they were the last to dissolve into the parabrahman during dissolution, they will emerge first during creation. This also signifies the heart knot hrdaya granthi which is the cause for the individual to be tied to this body consciousness. This individual who is in the ocean of samsara, on search of eternal bliss will surrender to the guru who takes him step by step to the final destination of universal bliss.

This path of srividya is shown by the Sri Guru. Meditative technique The meditative technique was revealed by Sri Amritanadanatha Sri Prahlada sastriji of Devipuram Andhra Pradesh, which follows the above meaning. Although revealed by two different Gurus, the similarities in both are astounding, thus we find that all gurus are reflection of the Initial preceptor Adinatha. This knot can be visualized as akin to the shoe lace knot which is opened by pulling at the ends.

The removal of illusion beda buddhi by the Supreme grace is indicated here. This is a very powerful meditation technique, so please try this very slowly. Only once per day visualization at the initial level is recommended. Pancha devata and MahaSodasi The Parasurama kapla sutra is a primary text on the srividya path which prescribes individual attendance to five deities at allotted time in a day.

They are ganapaty, sundari in the pre-noon, syamala in the after noon, varahi in the night, para in the pre dawn brahma muhUrtha. In order to get the full benevolent grace of the central Maha Vidya Sundari, the devotion to the others is a pre-requisite.The school accepts and aims to provide both material prosperity and self-realisation. It has an extensive literature. There are various schools, including the so-called left-handed Family Life and right-handed Monastic Life practice.

Initiation must be from a true Guru Satguru, Sadguru. Mantras are believed to reveal the unity of the deity, the Guru and initiate dikshaka and the mantra or sound syllable Itself. The first mantra given to initiates is the Bala Tripurasundari Mantra.

Here the Goddess is visualized as a small child. Practical benefits of this spiritual practice results in good physical, mental and emotional health leading to a harmonious and effective relationship at home and the external world. This leads to success in all aspects of life. Those who do mantra japa without knowing its meaning and consciousness and without knowing the Yonimudra ,for them even crores of japa can't bring mantra siddhi.

Priye, mantra japa should be done with unflinching concentration and constantly meditating upon the meaning of the mantra in mind. Srividya creates a systematic, esoteric discipline combining elements of the yogas of knowledge, of devotion, and of ritual pooja. If the aspirant is initiated properly, it is the ultimate path, because it gives you the experience of union with the Universe, the Cosmos - or whatever name you prefer to call IT by.

It is said you must, in past lives, have done thousands of years of sadhana of all the devatas such as Vishnu, Shiva, Devi etc. In this context it is said that even if you are not really competent, some past meritorious karma can still you get initiated into Srividya, and you will become a yogabhrashta an outcast in spiritual practice — then in the next birth you will start where you stopped and will attain the union faster.

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. 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.

The Bindu in the center of the Shreechakra is the symbolic representation of the cosmic spiritual union of Shiva and Shakti. Usually the Guru gives it to a highly deserving and tested disciple.

If you cannot do a detailed worship, simply worship the Sri Yantra times with the simple Devi Mantra:. According to Tantra Sri Vidya Sadhana technique is mother of all spiritual knowledge.

The only aim of Sri Vidya is to attend Moksha - Liberation from rebirth cycling. The blessings of Mahadevi Great Goddness existing on each and everyone throughout the world. The knowledge of Sri vidya is bestowed only on him and he only is allowed to enter the holy yard of Mahadevi. The presence of Mahadevi is witnessed only after travelling towards the different realms of upward consciousness. Mahadevi, The Great Goddess is being worshiped as superpower deity in the world and Sri Vidya is a sadhana technique or gateway to reach the door of all important deities.

How Can We Help?It is listed under the category of Shaktha Upanishads viz. Bhavanopanishad is affiliated to Atharva Veda. It is a major text in the Sri Vidya — Sri Chakra tradition; and, brings out, very crisply, the symbolism of Sri Chakra and its upasana; its spiritual mode of worship of kadi samaya school, and contemplation.

Bhavanopanishad is an important text for the practice of antar-yagathe internal worship. Before we proceed further, a brief explanation on the suffix Upanishad to the title of the text appears necessary.

As per tradition, about thirteen Upanishads are considered major Upanishads; and they represent the core of the Upanishad wisdom.

They are of doubtless antiquity and constitute the first tier of the prasthana-traya the set of three principal textsthe foundations of the Vedic heritage; the other two tiers being the Brahma Sutras and the Bhagavad-Gita.

That was perhaps meant to provide those texts a halo of authority and an elevated position in the hierarchy of traditional texts. The thoughts in most of such texts were neither fresh nor universal. Many of those texts were theistic and sectarian in their approach; and were, therefore, classified according to their affiliations, such as Vaishnava, Shaiva and Shaktha etc. All such Upanishads are enumerated in the Charana-vyuha section of Atharva Veda, to which they are affiliated. That section itself has a supplementary character about it.

Mukthikopanishad 1. Coming back to Bhavanopanishad; it is described as an Upanishad in the sense of a secret doctrine or a liberating-wisdom. Nothing much is known about its author or its period. The statements are in Sutra style; exceedingly cryptic and with no suggestions.

It is not easy to interpret the sutras and derive meaning out of them. It insists on virtue, discipline and purity of rituals. The main purport of Bhavanopanishad is to establish a relation between structures of the human body and Sri chakra.

The Sri Chakra, in turn, is regarded as a projection of the essential characters of the universe. There is an attempt to harmonize samarasya the micro pindanda and the macro brahmandawith Sri Chakra being the median imbibing in itself the characteristics of the both.

Bhavanopanishad lays greater emphasis on symbolic representations and contemplation, than on rituals. The text begins with salutations and surrender to the Guru, hailing him as the fountainhead of the liberating wisdom. Then it goes on to relate the human constitution in its physical, mental and vital levels to the nine-fold energy represented by the nine enclosures of the Sri Chakra. A significant portion of the text is devoted to the enumeration of the nine enclosures avaranas that compose the Sri Chakra yantra; and to their geometric, cultic and psycho-physical representations.

In short, the text attempts to construct a harmonious relation between the micro and the macro; between the Tantric and the Vedic; and between worship and contemplation.

In the Sri Vidya tradition, the concept of Bhavana after which the text is named has a very special significance. In the tantra tradition, the worship is classified as external bahir-yaga and internal antar-yaga.

In the former the worship is offered to a concrete representation of a divinity which inspires devotion and reverence. Here, the object of adoration and worship is gross sthula. The devotee looks upon the mother-goddess as having a human form which he can see and touch. The services upacharas are offered to that form as if it were the most adorable and highly revered human being.

The worship also includes praising the divinity stutirepeating the mantra handed down by the Guru japawhich the tongue can utter and the ears can hear. There is also the contemplation on the glory of the God dhyana. This form of worship is termed as gross sthula. The text says that external worship is only a stepping stone, a preliminary procedure; and, one must go beyond that in due course. The external worship is a means and not an end.Stay updated on new dates and programs when you become a Mission Member.
