MantrArthAbhidhAnam of the VaradA Tantra

   [from ]
Subject: MantrArthAbhidhAnam of the VaradA Tantra
   ShrI Shiva said: Listen, O ParameshvarI! Now I shall describe to
   You the meaning of the Mantras, in the absence of knowledge of
   which no one can get the fruit even with millions of SAdhanA.
   O PArvatI! first of all listen to the meaning of the PrasAdabIja.
   Ha denotes Shiva and Au indicates SadAshiva; ShUnya indicates
   Duhkhahara. Thus Haum is the BIja for the worship of Shiva.
   Da indicates DurgA, U indicates Raksana; the NAdarUpa indicates
   VishvamAtA and Vindu indicates the Kurva. Thus DUm is the BIja
   for the worship of DurgA.
   Ka indicates KAlI; Ra indicates Brahma; I denotes MahAmAyA; NAda
   denotes VishvamAtA and the Vindu indicates Duhkhahara. Thus made
   up of these letters, KrIm is the BIja for the worship of KAlikA
   DevI for getting relief from afflictions and pain.
   Ha indicates Shiva; Repha indicates Dhana; I indicates Tusti;
   NAda indicates ParA; and Vindu indicates Duhkhahara. Thus the
   ShrIm is the BIja for the worship of LaksmI DevI.
   Ai stands for SarasvatI and Vindu for Duhkhaharana. Thus Aim id
   the BIja for the worship of VAnI.
   Ka stands for KAmadeva or Krsna; La for Indra; I for Tusti, and M
   for Sukha. Out of Love for You the KAmabIja which I have
   described is KlIm.
   Ha stands for Shiva; U for Bhairava; NAda for ParA, and the Vindu
   for Duhkhahara. These three letters make the Varma BIja HUm.
   Ga stands for Ganesha; Vindu for Duhkhaharana. Thus is made the
   BIja Gam for the worship of Ganesha.
   Ga stands for Ganesha; La for Teja; Au for MAtA; Vindu for
   Duhkhahara. Thus the BIja Glaum is meant for the worship of
   Ksa stands for Nrsimha; Ra for Brahma; Au for Urdhvadanta; and
   Vindu for Duhkhahara. Thus the BIja for the worship of Nrsimha is
   In each of the Mantras there are the first letters of Names, and
   the Name has been said SvayambhU. Therefore one should use or
   meditate upon the letters after knowing their meaning. Thus I
   have described to you the method according to which one should
   understand and meditate upon the meanings of the VibhaktIs.
   Sa stands for DurgottArana; Ta for TAraka; Repha for Bhukti; I
   for MahamAyA; NAda for VishvamAtrA; and Vindu for Duhkhahara. Out
   of love for You the meaning of the VadhUbIja which I have
   described is StrIm.
   Whenever there are two Vindus in a Mantra, the one stands for
   Duhkhaharana and the other for providing Sukha.
   Wherever are two Vindus in a Mantra, there the second is always
   used in the meaning of PUrna. The MAtrAs of SvAhA are famous in
   the meaning of ParA.
   Vasat stands for ShakramAtA; GirA for HaripriyA; Phat for SurA;
   and Vivrim for HayagrIva.
   Yam-bIja stands for VAyu and Lam for Indra. In BIjas consisting
   of several letters each letter-bhIja denotes its respective
   Wherever the same BIja is used twice, their meanings should be
   considered different. Thus knowing the meaning of the Mantra one
   should satisfy himself.
   One should use the Mantras for the purpose of Japa only after
   knowing both of their meanings.
