The jiva (embodied human) is devoid of qualities. Devi, for the jiva, pleasure is delusion. There is no doubt about this. Kundalini, the form of Sun, Moon and Fire, is endowed with qualities. Matrikabheda III, 6.
This is the second chapter of the large tantrik digest Devirahasya, and deals with the bija and other mantras of a number of Devis and Shaktis. Some of these, such as Bala, Jvalamukhi and Rajni have larger sections devoted to them in the body of the text.
As the Matrikabheda Tantra points out, “names” of goddesses are really adjectives of the one goddess, and this goes for male aspects of divinity too.
While, in the original text, the letters making up the following mantras were given in code form, they are decoded in the translation below. Numbers which occur in mantras, such as Krim 3, and so forth, mean the word is to be repeated the requisite number of times.
While the following collection of written words may even be expressed as utterances, the tantrik texts and adepts are adamant that such remain mere words and letters without being infused with the mantra consciousness of the Devis they are said to represent. The same applies to the geometric form of divinity expressed as yantra. They are dead collections of lines and petals without Shakti.
Shri Bhairava said: Now I will declare the body of mantras, Maheshvari, [for the forms of] Vishnu, Shakti and Shiva. Listen, Parvati, to the Devis:
Tripura, Tryakshari, Bala, Tripurabhairavi, Kalika, Bhadrakali, Matangi, Bhuvaneshvari, Ugratara, Chinna-Shirsha, Sumukhi, Sarasvati, Annapurna, Mahalakshmi, Sharika, Sharada, Indrakshi, Bagala, Turya, Rajni, Jvalamukhi, Bhida, Kalaratri, Bhavani, Vajrayogini, Varahi, Siddhalakshmi, Kulavagishvari, Padmavati, Kubjika, Gauri, Shri Khechari, Nilasarasvati, and Parashakti.
Now I will declare the whole body of the mantras of the Shaktis. Then I will declare the mantras of Shiva, O Parvati, in the following order:
Mrityunjaya, Amritesha, Vatuka, Maheshvara, Shiva, Sadashiva, Rudra, Mahadeva, Karalaka, Vikarala, Nilakantha, Sharva, Pashupati, Mrida, Pinaki, Girisha, Bhima, Ganesha, Pramathadhipa, Kumara, Krodhana, Kapala, Krura Bhairava, Samhara, Ishvara, Bharga, Ruru, Kalagni, Aghora, Mahakala and Kameshvara.
Deveshi I will (then) declare the Vishnu mantras hidden in the tantras, by which oral doctrine a mantrin goes to Vishnu’s feet.
Lakshmi-Narayan, Radha-Krishna, Vishnu-Nrisimha, Varaha, Jamadagni, Sita-Rama, Janardana, Vishvakshena, Vasudeva – thus the 10 Vaishnava (forms).
