Kriyayoga Mahakali Siddhapeeth

Tantric worship is a combination of yantra worship and mantra recitation done simultaneously. Many kinds of worship are prescribed according to the nature of the aspirant. The type of worship is also connected with the desire of the aspirant. The worshiper must decide what is the object of worship. Worship done for liberation is different from worship done for the fulfillment of worldly desires. Tantra believes that worship can bring any desired result-that one does not worship only to be liberated from the cycle of life and death and to end suffering. Desires can be fulfilled, sufferings can be brought to an end, the impossible can be made possible. All is possible by worship, if the sadhak has true devotion, purity, good intention , and patience. The sadhak is free to choose a deity or yantra, whichever triggers him or her emotionally. The next step is to find a teacher. Anyone who is emotionally and practically involved in Tantra worship is competent to become a teacher. Tantra is a method, a technique, a path-and one who is one the path can lead others, or lead them to his or her own teacher.
The selection of a Guru- a great task in itself- is followed by initiation and learning the techniques. In Tantra there are three different shools (see Table 11).
Samaya Mat is the ancient path of worship. Vedic in orgin, it believes in sacrifice and penance.
Kaul Mat is the path of heroes. Those who can face challenges and remain balanced and centered can enjoy both yoga and bboga (sensual enjoyment). Desires should be fulfilled, and a state of having no desire except the desire for union should be achieved. Bhoga is used as an instrument for yoga.
A kaul is an evolved being who dwells in nondual consciousness and a constant state of awareness. His madya (liquor) is amarita (soma) dripping from Som Chakra. To his mans (meat) is his anger, greed, and attachment. Matsya (fish) is taste, egoity, pride, avarice. Mudra (money) is hope, seeking, anxiety, fear, jealously, shyness, envy. Maithuna (sexual communion) is the union of Kundalini with Shriva. This is the real Panch Makar Sadhana of a kaul.
Mishra Mat, the mixed path, combines Yoga, tapas, and mantra. Local customs and tribal rituals are also included to ensure the emotional involvement of the aspirant. According to this schools the intoxication that comes by knowledge is liquor; the stopping of the constant floating in Ganga and Yamuna (ida and pingala)is eating the fish; the precious achievement of experience and knowledge is money; and the union of nada and bindu is sexual communion.
Whatever path the aspirant may follow, certain requirement are common.

OBJECTS FOR RITUAL WORSHIP AND SODASHA PUJA

  • An altar
  • An asana (seat) for the deity or yantra, or both
  • An image (idol) of the deity or a yantra, or both
  • An asana for the aspirant
  • A water pot, made of gold, silver, or copper, for offering water
  • A mala
  • A bell
  • Scents for offering to the deity
  • Cloth for the deity
  • Jewelry for the deity
  • Flowers
  • Incense
  • Sweet of any kind for offering as food
  • Sandalwood paste
  • A mixture of yogurt with honey and cream or ghee

The aspirant should not use any tailored cloth or stitched cloth. A yellow, red or white dhoti or sari is prescribed. If nothing is mentioned about the color of the cloth, a yellow cloth can be safely used.
The worship should begin with purification, which creates an electrochemical balance in the body and thus prepares it for worship. Generalyy purification means cleansing of the body. If the digestive tract and the lower abdominal tract are not clean, the sadhana can bring adverse effects. Cleansing means not only taking a bath or washing face, hands, and feet. Purification is cleansing in the complete sence; the purification of the lower abdominal tract and body, of the place of worship (in which water is sprinkled over the floor and in all directions), and of the altar. Then the asana for the sadhak is laid down and purified by reciting the purification mantra and sprinkling water to generate more pranic negative ions in the atmosphere. Ganesha Mantra is recited next. Then the sadhak recites the mantra for the salutation to the god or goddess who is being invoked. Then the sadhak “fences the ten quarters,” a protective ritual called dikbandhan. The sadhak does this by striking the bija mantra PHAT, clapping, and snapping the fingers twice while moving them in a circular motion around the head.
Then the sadhak performs pranayama, and the elements of the body are purified. Next comes nyasa. The word nyasa means “to place” The fingertips and the palm of the right hand are placed on various parts of the body while uttering certain mantras. First comes Rishi Nyasa or invoking of the rishi who originated the mantra being used, then Anganyasa (body organs), Karanyasa (fingertips), Hridyanyasa (heart), pilknyasa (psychic centers), and Bijnyasa (throat, third eye, and head)-known as six kinds of nyasa (khadnyasa). Then comes meditation on the form of the deity or yantra, then Panchopchar, or worship done by five (panch) articles (opchar);

  1. Gandha-Smell-Earth
  2. Naivedya-Taste-Water
  3. Dip-Lamp-Fire
  4. Dhup-Incense-Air
  5. Pushp-Flowers-Akasha

Then Comes Manas Puja (offerings made mentally) and meditation. Then comes the reciting of various names, mantra japa, and finally the recital of kavach (armor), which brings protection. Kavach is supposed to be the essence of worship; without reciting kavach, the full benefit of a worship cannot be obtained.

Another method of worship is Shodashopchar, It is done thirty articles (opchar) –

After the Shodashopchar worship, the same order of Manas Puja meditation and mantra japa and kavach is done.
If a yantra is to be made before the worship, then it should be made after purification and dik-bandhan. Yantras for worship should be made on copper, silver, or gold (or a mixture of the three, called trilob) or written with asthagandha on bhojpatra (birch bark) with a pen made from the branch of a pomegranate tree. If the yantras are to be engraved by a craftsman, he should be purified, and the plate should be handed over to him after drawing the yantra with asthagandha, or any prescribed ink, which may vary with the nature of the job and worship.
The Cosmic Mother exists in such forms as Kali, Saraswati, Lakshmi, Gayatri, Durga, Tripur Sundari. But the Dash Mahavidyas are her ten cosmic forms in which she has manifested herself in different yugas and on different occasions- each form suitable for the destruction of the evil force-and are her forms before she again became Uma, the wife of Lord Shiva.
The ten forms in which she appeared on different occasions are represented by ten different yantras. These yantras are given here and can be used as a tool to enter into the ten different dimensions of knowledge.
Each Mahavidya is connected with her male counterpart-Shiva-and a special night on which she should be worshiped. In India these nights are celebrated as important times, and Tantrics spend this time invoking powers and doing japa.
Mantras related to each Mahavidya are as follows.
