The Real Duck tape of Sunyata

To pass through existence leaving no marks is known as The Footprints of the BuddhaNo indent, nothing displaced, very rarely found, Once seen: forgottenSwallowed up by “the lake of my mind”All bliss accomplished, in my Yum’s embraceNothing left to conquerYoga of patience

At daybreak, chopping, tapping, high-decibel music attackComing loudly from the three middle directionsStill… went back under for an hour

Now breaking free of domestic circleRice, trees and pale swamp grassGive birth to a lotus-filled aqueductImage Mantra:

Siva Rudra

Page 5: Oöol Tantric Mantra Book


THE SATARUDRIYAbeing freely rendered into verse by Dr. Oöol Fjölkunnìgr



Hail to Rudra, hail to your wrath and arrow, destroyer of evil,Hail to your bow and to your powerful arms.

Prostration to Thee, Rudra; Prostration to Thy Wrath and Thy Arrow (which destroy evil); Prostration be to Thy bow; Prostration to Thy mighty Arms.

Note: - According to the celebrated Sayana Acharya, the Rudra chapter of the Yajurveda consists of the Mantras by which oblations are offered in the Sacrifice of Knowledge, wherein the manifold universe is visualised as the extensive manifestation of theSupreme being.

With your arrow of peace, bow inspiring hope and quiver of good fortune, O valiant one, make us happy.

This, Thy arrow that has become exceedingly peaceful (to the devout); Thy bow become a source ofauspiciousness, and Thy quiver of blessedness; with these, O Valiant One (Rudra), make us happy.

Note:- While the first Mantra invokes the Terrible Power for destruction of evil, the second envisages the fulfillment of the arms on the establishment of peace, and the now benignant phase of what was once formidable.

Rudra! The auspicious and merciful sin-eraser… radiant in your garb of peace,Come! Shining Lord of Kailasa.

Rudra! That blessed and benign form of Thine, which obliterates the trace of all sins - with that most hallowed and calm phase of Thy being, reveal Thyself to us, O radiator of peace from the Mount of Kailasa!

Note: - Rudra-Siva is said to have two forms, the terrific and the beatific, which are manifested at different times.

O boon-granter, thawer of the frozen peak, transform your fierce foe-destroying projectile into the merciful arrow of salvation,Harm not man and the other sentient beings, O protector of the holy crag!

O Benefactor from the Mount of Kailasa! That arrow which Thou wieldest for aiming at enemies, make that benign (in respect of us); harm not human beings or others in creation, O Protector in the sacredMount!

Page 6: Oöol Tantric Mantra Book

O mountain top dweller, We invoke you with these sacred verses, Yearning for your shining presence… May the whole of space be freed! Let the ubiquitous tendrils of pain and sorrow be transformed into sweet scented jasmine flowers of joy and well-being

Resident of the Mountains! We pray to Thee with auspicious eulogies, for the sake of attaining Thee; do so deign that this whole world of ours is rid of all ailment and affliction, and blooms with a joyous mind.

May I be embedded in the heart-mind-awareness of Mahadeva, sympathetic and magical subduer of all evil. Even poisonous creatures, fell beasts, trolls, goblins, giantsAnd all other malevolent spiritsSeek the comfort of your non-discriminatory grace.

May that Divine Physician, First among gods, exalt me in His all-redeeming Transcendent Being;having cut off all evil, whether in the form of poisonous creatures and wild beasts, or the demoniacal natures in creation.

O red, pink, yellow, brown and skewbald sky-emperor,Painted with all the colours of the rising sun,God of vivid insignia, dispeller of darkness,Issuing the ten-thousand rays of splendour which envelope all worlds,We bow down to your penetrating ferocity.

This (Rudra in the form of the Sun), ruddy, pink, brownish and yellow and of variegated hue (in different stages of rising from the horizon), most auspicious (being dispeller of darkness), manifested in the bright rays enveloping (the earth) from all directions, ranging in tens and thousands - of these the penetrating ferocity we mitigate with our Prostrations.

O brave Nila-Lohita, you selflessly entrap the indigo poison in your throat.Great Ruddy-faced one! Ever arising as the brilliant fire, which transits the sky,Regarded by poor cowherds and water-jug girls alike, seen by all the myriad ranks of beings… Shower us in ambrosial rain of light and contentment.

This Blue-necked (due to drinking poison), Red-complexioned One, who traverses through the sky (in the form of the Sun) - Him do see (with their eyes) the unlettered cowherds as well as the maids carrying water, Him do also see all beings (both high and low). May He (Rudra) make us happy.

Note:- The import of this Mantra is that while the Lord as seated in such regions as Mount Kailasa isaccessible only to those who have spiritual realisation, as the Sun He is visible to everyone. In His great compassion He makes Himself felt even by our outer senses.

Page 7: Oöol Tantric Mantra Book

Hail to blue-neck: Nilagriva, who is the thousand-eyed Indra.All Hail to Parjanya, master of the rains And grateful praises to your devoted servants and protectors.

Salutation be to Nilagriva (with blue neck), who has a thousand eyes (as Indra), and who pours down (as rain or Parjanya); salutation be from me to others, too, who attend upon Him (as His servants).

O Bhagawan, disengage your bowstring from the top and bottom of your bow and set aside your sharp tipped arrows.O thousand-eyed hurler, amasser of hundreds of war-quivers,Neglect that bow and disarm those menacing darts,Become now the dispenser of hope.O great Rudra of loving character,Forever bestowing vast and inconceivable merit.

Lord! Unfurl the string at both the ends of Thy bow; Those arrows that are in Thy hand - set them aside (now, after the enemy has been destroyed). O Thousand-eyed Divinity! Thou that hast hundreds of quivers (in war)! Setting down Thy bow, and dismantling the ends of Thy piercing arrows (after Thy purpose has been fulfilled), become Thouauspiciousness unto us, with a charming mood ofblessing.

Note:- The term 'Lord' is the equivalent of theSanskrit original 'Bhagavan', which means one who ispossessed of all wealth (Aisvarya), valour (Virya),fame (Yasas), prosperity (Sri), wisdom (Jnana), non-attachment to things (Vairagya); - an epithet of the Almighty.

Great Kapardin, may your bow remain untested.Abandon your quiver of upward jutting arrow shafts.May the threatening tips become like welcoming bannersAnd the bow: merely an auspicious symbol of support.

May the Bow of Kapardin (Siva) be freed from its string; and may His quiver be without the piercing ends of the arrows held above. May his arrows becomeincapable of piercing through, and may His Bow becomemerely a support for the arrows (and not to shootthem).

Note:- This Mantra and the others which pray for theputting down of the weapons of Rudra-Siva areinvocations of His peaceful aspect which manifestsitself when He is not engaged in the work ofdestruction with His fierce arms.

Page 8: Oöol Tantric Mantra Book

O ultimate generator of completion, shield us on allsides, Hold fast to your beneficent weaponry and holy bow.Hail to the arrow, held in check, yet capable ofstriking down the foe.Hail to that wondrous bow and give thanks for yourmighty arms.

O Abundant Source of all fulfilments! Protect us Thou, from all sides, with the Weapons (like the sword) and the Bow in Thy hands, that have ceased frompurposes of destruction. Salutation be to Thy weapon arrow that has not been extended on the bow, but is capable of striking the enemy! Salutation to Thy bow. And salutation to Thy two arms.

Warrior God! May the points of your destroying arrows never turn this way.Let your quiver only unleash its fury in subjugating our foes.

Lord! May the pointed arrows of thy bow exclude us, in every way, from their destructive operations).And that quiver of Thine - may Thou keep it far away from us (and protect us).

Note:- According to another interpretation, the secondline can be rendered thus: 'And that quiver of Thine -may Thou direct it on our enemies.'

Hail to thee, Vairagya, Sovereign of Space, Triple-eyed Mahadeva: Breaker of the Tripuras. Extinguisher of fire, consumingthe cosmos at the end of time Terrorize even of Kala; Great terminator at the finalconflagration. Nilagriva, azure necked saviour, conqueror of death. Overlord, Merit giver, Ever auspicious, blessed Mahadeva… Hail to thee!

Prostration be to Thee, O Lord, Ruler of the universe, Great God Three-Eyed One, Destroyer of the Tripuras, Death to the destructive Fire of the threeworlds at the end of Time, Terror to even to the terrible Fire of Time, blue-necked one, overcomer of mortality, Overlord over everyone, Bestower of Blessedness, Ever-Auspicious, the Blessed Great God: To Thee Prostration.

In the subsequentsections, His glories as revealed in all creation, asmanifest in every quarter and cranny, are described.These hymns abound in a varied adoration of thesupreme Being in all things, and every word of'Prostration' is repeated twice, as Prostration onboth sides, and Prostration in the beginning and inthe end (which is avoided in the translation).

Note:- The Lord is adored as the chief of thieves, etc:, in two senses. Firstly, He is the indwelling presence of ‘even the thieves’, and their lives are impossible without His existence in them as their essence. Secondly, He is also the Jiva, which is the thief; apart from his being Isvara ranging beyond the realm of the former. Also, the Lord it is that sports as the high and low, the good and the bad, the virtuous and the debased, when looked at from the standpoint of the universe taken as a whole, a view which is hard for the Jiva sunk in personality cognitions and perceptions, but the right vision of those who are absorbed into Reality. Ethical concepts stand transfigured in the Absolute. These Mantras of the Veda are to help a seeker in recognizing God through the medium of all creation.

Sayana states that the gentle onesare the seven Matrikas, etc, while the violent onesare Durga, etc.

Chapter Four Kankalamalini Tantra

This chapter centres around the worship of Mahakali. Parvati asks Shiva to give the Kali mantra, and describe her puja. Ishvara (Shiva) says that the mantra of Mahakali bestows every type of success. All the gods and rishis achieved what they did through her worship. It gives both liberation and enjoyment and bestows liberation through enjoyment, when heard from the mouth of the guru.

Shiva gives the mantras of Mahakali and and says her one syllable mantra is the gives siddhi in the Kali age. He then gives a three syllable mantra of Dakshina Kalika, followed by other three syllable mantras producing different results.

Conventional rules in the worship of Mahakali are suspended, says Shiva. There is no rule as to time, as to the woman who is the shakti, or to defects of the mantra. Similarly, one need not pay attention to bodily defects. The sadhana may be done during the day or at night, and the recitation (japa) of the mantra may be done anywhere.

By pleasure one gains liberation, Shiva says. He says: "This is true, true, true and again true, I say."

Puja is of three types, he says: daily, every so often, and according to desire (kamya). Here he says he will speak of the daily puja of Mahakali. Bhairava is the rishi, Ushnik is the metre, and the devata is Mahakali, who gives the four aims of mankind.

Without five fold purification, any puja undertaken is black magic (abhichara). Those five purifications are of the atma, bath, the materials, the mantra and the devata. Following the placing of the materials, one should bow to the gurus on the left and to Ganapati on the right, and should then perform bhutashuddhi, the purification of the elements. (This is a meditation in which the different elements within a sadhaka are purified. There is a complete

Page 31: Oöol Tantric Mantra Book

explanation and translation of this process in Woodroffe's edition of the Mahanirvanatantra).

Different nyasas are then performed, and the text follows with a meditation image of Mahakali. One should meditate on Adya Mahakali as being in a celestial spot, on the central peak of the Himalaya range, under a jewelled pavilion which is the great pitha, her lotus feet served by Narada and the best of saints, worshipped by Bhairava. She is the colour of sapphire, with two large high breasts, wears variegated colour clothes, and has four arms and three eyes.

The text then follows with a description of her inner meditation, where she has limbs the colour of thunderclouds, dishevelled clothing, three eyes and is seated on Shiva's corpse. She is ornamented with a chain of skulls. In her left upper hand she holds a man's severed head, and with the lower hand holds a cleaver. She has dishevelled hair.

Shiva then gives a further dhyana of Mahakali, where she has a fierce, fanged mouth, is completely naked, and has three eyes. She sits in virasana on Mahakala and makes a terrifying noise, wears a garland of skulls (mundamala) and has streams of blood pouring over her full breasts. She sways backwards and forwards, as if intoxicated. In her left hands she holds a cleaver and a severed head, and in her right shows the mudras giving boons and dispelling fear. She has a terrifying face and her tongue rolls wildly. She has earrings made up of a bird's wing and an arrow. She is served by terrifying, roaring jackals in the cremation ground and by Bhairavas making fearful laughing noises, and who dance over men's skeletons, making their victory cries.

Whew. The text then follows with a description of Kali's fifteen attendants, the Kalinityas. This leads up to the left-hand worship with the panchatattva or panchamakara. Shiva says whoever does Kula puja without wine or flesh loses the merit of 1,000 good incarnations. "Without wine, there is no mantra, there is no mantra except with wine," Shiva says. After performing the rite of the five makaras (see virasadhana, elsewhere on this site), one should bow again to Mahakali before doing the dismissal and cleansing rites.

Chapter Five

This chapter is concerned with purashcharana, the rites to be performed by an initiated tantrika to make a mantra successful.

Page 32: Oöol Tantric Mantra Book

Elsewhere on this site, we have described the elaborate rules, stretching over several days, which a sadhaka has to undertake. But the Kankalamalini, in a similar matter to the Devirahasya and the Brihadnilatantra seems to suspend these rules.

Parvati is told by Ishvara that in the Kali Yuga, folk are short lived and unable to perform rites in the way they were able to do in previous times. He says that for this worship there is no bad time, no special day or night, no need to do the puja on "great nights", such as the eighth or fourteenth of a dark fortnight, nor is there a necessity for worship at the twilights (sandhya).

There are no rules about directions, places, recitation of mantra, time to do the worship. "Here, svecchacharya (doing the rite according to will) is the rule for the mahamantra in sadhana," Ishvara says.

Performing worship in the Kali Yuga in this fashion brings siddhi in six months, according to the text. Shiva says: "Devi, in the Kali Yuga, there are no tirthas (bathing spots), no vows to undertake, no homa, no bath, and no twilight worship (sandhya). " Those rites belong to the previous eras of the Saya, Dvapara and Treta Yugas, he says.

However, purashcharana is still necessary, he adds, and proceeds to give the rite suitable for tantriks during the Kali Yuga. There then follows a lengthy rite which includes the giving of substances including ghee, milk, and sugar, and the recitation of many mantras, the performance of many nyasas. The importance of the rudraksha rosary is stressed at great length. The sadhaka should smear himself with ash, and put three lines on his forehead as well as a tilak.

Rules are given about the use of the Gayatri mantra, and towards the end of chapter five, there is a lengthy discourse on the Devis of the bodily dhatus, such as Dakini, Lakini, Rakini and so forth, along with their bija mantras and their various meditation images. These Devis are situated in the different chakras.

Ink On My Face, Ink On My HandsKazi Nazrul Islam

Oh mother of mine, There's ink* on my hands,ink on my face.The neighbors laugh.My education amounts to nothing -I see "ShyaMa" in the letter MAnd Kali in the letter K, I dance and clap my hands.Only my tears multiplywhen my eyes light on the rows of black marksin multiplication tables.I couldn't care less forthe alphabet's shades of sound since your dark, lovely shadeisn't among them.But Mother, I can read all that you write on leaves in the forest, on the waters of the sea,and in the ledger of the sky.Let them call me illiterate.

*The Bengali original of this song plays on the word for ink, "kali," which is pronounced identically with the name of the goddess Kali.

The 36 Yakshinis from the Uddamareshvara Tantra

A Yakshini is a species of supernatural entity, in some ways similar to a fairy. A Yaksha is male, a Yakshini female. In the Uddamareshvara Tantra 36 of these beings are described, together with their mantras and ritual prescriptions. By soliciting their aid various powers are said to accrue to the devotee.

Uddamareshvara is a name of Lord Shiva and means "Lord of the Extraordinary". His retinue consists of a host of disreputable beings, fiends, ghouls, &c. which he has forced into his service.

Yakshas and Yakshinis are attendants or servitors of Lord Kubera, who has all the earth's treasure within his domain. A similar list is given in the Tantraraja Tantra. There it is said that they are givers of whatever is desired, each having 2 arms, fair bodies, wearing fine clothing of different hue, young and wanton, adorned with garlands of flowers, smeared with orpiment. Alternative mantras from this tantra are formed as follows:

Secret Kula in the Spirit of Norse Magic 27-07-04 Bangkok

Upon reading sl. 57 of the Tantrāloka, memory occurs: Making a fire in the quarry, located in Oöol’s forest Near McCarthy Park (Paul Anka Drive)... Now filled in, below the backside of the Community Center I am sometimes alone, sometimes in the company of Julie Taha ua and extremely desirable She is in full communication with the realm of faerie So much so that she had crafted fairy hats for us to wear Drew the various denizens of the realm of fairies Compulsively coloring them with pens and paint She used to sing spontaneously composed faerie lilts Along with the silly verses She was already a fully empowered Yogini Kula receptacle And offered herself to me without the slightest hesitation First in behind the furnace pipes in her basement And then on any hill or knoll or in the tall grass of various fields We went to the quarry (a sacred powerful Smashana) Built a fire and engaged in our own style of ritual copulation This was the uncommon union Which consciously allowed us to experience The ascending and dissolving bliss of Kula "The swollen Sakti pours forth. Bhairava, for his part is overjoyed. By reposing in the bliss of union, the couple is worshiped. A stream of rays flows like sparks of fire from consciousness which has the form of a great splendour... He should worship that same stream within as a group of deities. || 50 || For the garland of phonemes, we had the Norse Runes (FUTHARK) 16 in number: Fe Ur Thurs Os Reid Kón Hågl Nauð Ìs Aèr Sól Týr Björk Madr Logr Yr... Ground beef roasted on the tips of sticks provided the flesh Prasad By the force of karmic inertia, we were doing our best to observe naive Kula rituals and Secret Mantra Tsog “Emanation, permanence, re-absorption and the nameless* constitute the 'set of four' in the Krama tradition. He should worship 'the set of four' in connection with 'sacred sites' and 'cremation ground' with a view to enjoyment and liberation". || 57 || Jr. 57d.1 'With a view to enjoyment and liberation' indicates the reason for the worship. Therefore, it is said in that text: Qt. 57d.1 "The process of emanation is first. Continuation is second. Re-absorption is third. The ineffable** is fourth." Jr. 57d.2 Having said which [the text continues]: Qt. 57d.2: "Born into the family of Kali, he should definitely engage in contemplation." Qt. 57d.3 "The sacred textual tradition [performed] according to the ritual of the sacred sites, is governed by Sankarsani. Without the [sacred sites], he will not become a perfected being. I will give you the teaching on this matter." Jr. 57d.3 According to the illustrious Devyayamala the three goddesses and the illustrious Sankarsini constitute the 'set of four.' * anama= nameless **anakhya= the ineffable Qt. 64d.1 "'I am not, neither does another exist; energies alone exist'. If he meditates on that 9thought0, that place of repose, that true nature, even for a moment, then, having become a 'Khecari' (sky traveler) he will enter the company of Yoginis, (dakinis)." And also... Qt. TA 32.20cd-- 24ab (pg 148) "Free (tyktamsako), not attached to any ritual (niracaro), without doubt, free of worldly concerns, pure, not attached to any ritual, reflecting that 'I am not'.

No lunar day nor asterism, no fasting is prescribed. He who is engrossed in everyday life becomes a perfected being by means of continued recollection. || 65 || Sankarsini is worshiped at the final contraction on the circle 'Cakrini.' She reabsorbs and produces growth. She is invoked by the mantra: HRIM MAHACANDA YOGESVARI THR DHR THR PHAT PHAT PHAT PHAT PHAT

Kalakrntani is the 'quick time cutter'. She transcends maya and dwells in 'suddhavidya,' true knowledge, "Fjöl-kunnìg." At first, she dwells in the center of Cakrini. At the last and final contraction of the circle Sankarsini remains, the final drop of splendour gleaming in the infinitely small point of contraction. She is in union with consort Rudra inside the alchemical, ultimate essence drop of poesy, philosopher's stone.

The potter's wife, Cakrini is the one who expresses oil from the seed.

The eye brow center is the sacred region of the Yoginis.

The guhya (private place) is the "mouth of the Yogini", "Yogini vaktra", "the end of twelve", "the mouth of aja".
