Mode of purification of the principle of peace ||87||
1-2The Lord said: The beatific knowledge should be united now with the (principle of) peace as laid down. The two principles lie in the (principle of) peace. Bhhvesvara and Sadasiva are spoken as the two letters ha and ksa. The Rudras are equal in number to the worlds. They are as follows:
3Prabhava (valiant), Samaya (time), Kshudra (little), Vimala (free from impurity), Siva (auspicious), Ghana (heavy), Niranjanakara (unstained form), Svasiva (auspicious to himself), Dlptikarana (cause of brilliance), Tridasesvara (lord of the thirty (gods), Tridaia (representing the thirty), Kalasamjnaka (known as the time), Sukshma (minute), Ambujesvara (lord of the lotus). These are the Rudras firmly established in the principle of peace.
4(Obeisance) to the one who pervades the ether, to the form which manifests as the ether, to the all-pervasive, to the auspicious one, to the endless, to one who has no master, to one who is not having any hold, to the firm one, to the eternal, to the one firmly established in the seat of yoga, to the eternal yogin, and one who partakes of such meditation (of votaries) are the twelve terms (used in their invocation).
5The preceptor should meditate with the two protective mantras (known as) bindu and upakdraka the two occult nerves alambusa and syasa and the two vital winds krikara and karmaka in the subtle phase.
6The organs of skin and hand are considered as the two senses of perception for this beatific principle. The attributes of touch and sound are the only two attributes, lord (Siva) is the only cause of these.
7Having contemplated upon the different worlds which are located in the beatific principle of peace as the fourth state (of consciousness) (in which the soul gets united with the Supreme being), (the preceptor) should do the (acts of) gentle beating, division, entry and union.
8Having drawn the (beatific principle of) peace from the string of the face, it should be held (by the preceptor). Having merged it in one’s own self, the beatific principle should be held and projected in the receptacle.
9“O Lord! I am initiating this disciple desirous of release (from bondage) subject to your control. You have to be beneficial to him.” The appeal should thus be made.
10After having invoked the divine parents and doing the gentle beating of the disciple etc. and collecting the soul force, it should be united with his preceptor’s own soul.
11Having invoked the divine parents as before by (showing) mudra known as udbhava (formation with fingers denoting generation), it should be located in the womb of the goddess by repeating the principal mantra of the god preceded by the mantra of the heart.
12A corporeal frame for the beatitude should be done with the (repetition of the mantra of the) heart five times. (The mantra of) the head (should be repeated) for bringing it into being. Its authority (is accomplished) by (the mantra of) the tuft and the enjoyment by (the mantra of) the armour.
13Its repose (is accomplished) by (the repetition of) the mantra of weapons. The purification of the currents (is achieved) by (that of lord) Siva. In (the case of) purification of the principle, (the rites of) garbhadhana etc. (should be done) in the same manner as before.
14The thread is untied with that of the armour. Having completed the purification thus, one should repeat the mantras hundred times. In order to compensate the mitigation of the power of mantras five oblations should be made with (the mantra of) the weapon.
15After having untied the thread, it should be severed with a knife by the repetition (of the mantra) of the weapon seven times just as the bondage is cut off with the principal mantra.
16(The mantra is): “Om, haum, to the thread of the beatific principle of peace hah, hum, phat. After having untied and made into a circle, the chord should be placed as before in the sacrificial ladle filled with clarified butter with (the repetition of the mantra of) the weapon. Oblation should be done with (the mantra of) the weapon and of the beatific principle.
17Five oblations should be made with (the mantra of) the weapon for the sake of ending the fresh shoots of bondage. To remedy the obstruction in expiation, eight oblations should then (be made). Om, hah to the weapon ham phat (is the mantra for the same).
18Having invoked god with (the mantra of) the heart, and offered worship and appeasement, the appropriate fee should be offered to him in the prescribed way: “Om, ham, O lord! accept this fee of intellect and ego, oblations.”
19O lord! You should not remain as a bondage for this being whose all bonds have been burnt away. Thus the mandate of (lord) Siva should be made to be heard.
20The god should be bid adieu and the crescent-like soul should be united with the lord Rudra. Then it must be united with one’s own (preceptor’s) soul in the prescribed way.
21The same should be united with the thread by showing pure udbhavamudra (formation with fingers denoting generation). The drop of nectar should be put on the head of the disciple with (the repetition of) the principal (mantra).
22Having taken leave of the (divine) parents after worshipping them with flowers etc., (the preceptor) should offer the final oblation to the fire as a concluding rite.
23Even here the acts of gentle beating etc. should be done as before. The distinctive feature is (the use of) its principal mantra. Thus the purification (of the beatific principle) of peace is done without any impediment.
