1-2The lord said: The union of the two principles good and bad should be brought about by the application of short and long (vowels) associated with sound. Om, ham, hrum, ham, water, effulgence, wind, sky, the subtle principles, organs, intellect, the three qualities and ego (are) the twenty-four principles (and) the purusa (the soul) (is the twenty-fifth).
3(The preceptor) should imagine the letters beginning with kha and ending with jya as merged in the above twenty- five principles.

14The two occult sychic nerves gandari and susumna, then the winds samana and udana, the organs of taste and reproduction (are also worshipped).
15-22The sentiments are the material objects. The qualities are perception, hearing, touch and taste. The mystic diagram should be circular and bear the mark of a white Iotus. After having contemplated on the worlds as well as those established along with the eagle-bannered god who is the cause for the establishment in the dreamy state, the thread should be placed on the body with (the recitation) of the appropriate mantra and retained (by the preceptor). “Om, ham, khum, ham, to the thread of the beatitude of consecration Om, phat. With this (mantra) and ending with ‘oblations’ it should be drawn while drawing in breath and exhibiting ahkufa-mudrd (formation with fingers denoting a goad). Then “Om, ham, hrum, hram, hrum to the thread of the beatitude of consecration hrum phat. With this and retention of breath and showing samharamudra (formation with fingers denoting gathering) it should be taken from the occult nerve below the heart. Om, ham, hram, hram, ham, obeisance to the thread of the beatitude of consecration. With this (mantra) and showing the udbhavamudra (formation with fingers denoting generation) and discharge of breath, it should be placed on the pitcher. Having worshipped with the mantra “Om, hrim, hrim obeisance to the thread of the beatitude of consecration” ending with ‘oblations’, and offered three oblations for ensuring its continuance (lord) Vishnu should be invoked (with the mantra) “Om, ham, obeisance to Vishnu”, worshipped and offered oblations O Vishnu! I initiate the disciple who is desirous to get liberation herein under your authority”. You should be propitious. Thus Lord Vishnu should be informed. Then the (Goddess) Vagisvari and Lord Vagisa should be invoked as before, worshipped and offered oblations and the disciple should be gently struck on the chest. Om, ham, ham, ham, phat. (The preceptor) should enter with the same (mantra) and severe the consciousness in the above-said thread with the (mantra) of weapon and (showing) the ahkusamudra (formation with fingers denoting a goad) and jyestha (mantra) Om, ham, ham, hom, hrum, phat. Having drawn it with (the mantra of) the heart ending with “oblations”, it should be lodged in one’s own soul repeating the same (mantra) and ending with “obeisance”. Om, ham, ham, hom obeisance to the soul. The union of divine parents should be imagined as before with the udbhanamudra (posture with fingers denoting generation) and (the seed of the soul} should be cast into the womb of the goddess by exhibiting die same (mudra) from the left. Om, ham, ham, ham obeisance to the soul the birth of the body should be (accomplished) by (the mantra of) the heart, the postnatal (ceremony) by (the mantra of) the head.
23Otherwise its possession (could be accomplished) by (the mantra of) the tuft. For the sake of enjoyment of pleasures it should be done by the mantra of the armour. In regard to the purity of principles (it should be done) with (the mantra of) the heart and in the case of impregnation it is in the same way as before.
24-25For cutting bonds (it should be) accomplished by (the mantra of) the head. Having cut the bonds thus, the preceptor should repeat (the mantra) hundred times. Even after having cut the bonds thus, (the preceptor) should cut it with the repetition of the mantra of the weapon and with a scissor over which the mantra of the beatific principles has been repeated. Om, hrim, to the thread of the beatitude of consecration hahi phat. The thread should be removed and kept in a circular shape as before (described in the previous chapter) with (the repetition of the mantra of the weapon.
26Having placed it over the sacrificial ladle filled with clarified butter, oblations should be done with the mantra of the beatific principles and weapons. Five oblations should be made with (the mantra of) the weapon for the cessation of shoots of bondage.
27Eight oblations should be made for the sake of expiation. Om, hahi to the weapons hrum, phat. Lord Hrisikesha should be invoked and worshipped and offered oblations.
28As laid down earlier investiture of authority should be made Om, ham accept this fees of sentiment, oblations” (is the mantra which should be repeated). O Hara! (you) should not remain as a bond of this being (the disciple) whose bondage has completely been burnt away. Listen to this mandate of Lord diva. Having bid farewell to Lord Govinda (Vishnu) and united the soul of knowledge which resembles the moon’s disc half uncovered by the band by exhibiting the samharamudra (posture with fingers denoting gathering) and having bid farewell by showing the udbhavamudra (formation with fingers denoting generation) , the drop of water should be placed on the thread as before. Having bid farewell to die (divine) parents and having worshipped the fire with flowers, etc. the final oblation should be made as laid down. Thus the consecration also gets purified.
