This translation of the Yoni Tantra is a revised version of the 
serialised translation published in Azoth magazine, numbers 16-19.
Many Western commentators have alleged that the "secret sadhana" was 
veiled by a twilight language, but the Yoni Tantra explodes this myth. 
Kaulas were the unlikeliest folk to mince words and the consumption 
of the yoni tattva--a mixture of menses and semen--is here described 
in the clearest of terms.

Whilst ritual sexual intercourse is often alluded to in Kaula and 
Shri tantras, there are only a few of these in which yoni tattva 
is mentioned. Yoni Tantra could be described as a eulogy of the 
yoni and the yoni tattva.

As long ago as 1913, some details relating to this matter were 
published in Arthur Avalon's Hymn to Kali (Luzac, 1913). 
The matter was obviously held to be highly sensitive and parts of 
a commentary relating to consumption of the yoni tattva are left 

Other English language books have been discovered relating to 
this subject. The first is Elizabeth Sharpe's Secrets of the Kaula 
Circle (Luzac 1936), a factional account, which, while not 
spelling out the dark details, nevertheless showers hints and 
tips on the reader.

The author of Aleister Crowley and the Hidden God 
(Muller Ltd) is Kenneth Grant, an English occultist. 
This book refers to the process in oblique and mysterious 
ways, relating the process to Aleister Crowley's membership 
of the masonic group Ordo Templi Orientis. Crowley, in his 
Confessions (Cape, 1968) alludes to this matter, saying: 
"The OTO is in possession of one supreme secret."

From Crowley's diaries, it is evident that the secret he refers 
to is the consumption of the yoni tattva. The German founders 
of the Ordo Templi Orientis claimed to have Indian or tantrik 
gurus, but it is impossible to prove or trace this link.

It is, however, not impossible that the works of Sir 
John Woodroffe (Arthur Avalon) were the main inspiration of 
Crowley's "supreme secret". It is certainly quite extraordinary 
that Crowley never mentions the books of John Woodroffe, 
although it is certain he must have known of them.

The earliest reference to yoni tattva in Kaula tantra seems 
to be in the Kaula Jnana Nirnaya of Matsyendranath 
(English translation published by Prachya Prakashan, Benares, 1986):--
"In Kaula Agama, the five pure and eternal substances are 
ash, wife's nectar, semen, menstrual blood and ghee mixed 
together. In occasional rites and in acts of Kama Siddhi, 
the great discharge is without doubt and most certainly 
what one should do in Kaula Agama. One should always consume 
the physical blood and semen. Dearest One, this is the oblation 
of the Yoginis and the Siddhas". (KJN, Patala 8)

"A brahmin goes to heaven by endless washing of the feet and mouth, 
whereas a person repeatedly making a forehead mark of Kunda, 
Gola or Udbhava menses destroys various ailments such as 
leprosy and smallpox and is free from all disease in the 
same way that a serpent sloughs its skin." (ibid, Patala 8)
"Blood is the female (Vama) elixir. Mixed with wine and semen, 
it is the Absolute." (ibid, Patala 18)

Other Kaula tantras deal with the subject of menstrual blood 
in very plain terms. Matrikabheda Tantra 
(English translation Indological Book House 1990) 
describes the different types:--
"Shri Shankara said: The first menses appearing in a woman who 
has lost her virginity is Svayambhu blood. In a maiden born of a 
married woman and begotten by another man, that which arises is 
Kunda menses, the substance causing the granting of any desire. 
Deveshi, a maiden begotten by a widow gives rise to Gola menses, 
which subdues gods. The menses arising in the first period after 
a virgin becomes a married woman is the all bewildering Svapushpa." 
(MT, Patala 8)

The very first chapter of the MT mentions a substance called sambal, 
described in the commentary as a woman's menstrual discharge. 
This substance allows the tantrik adept to perform various sorts 
of alchemical operations.

Vajrayana is a cult of Tibetan lamaism. In the Candamaharosana 
Tantra (Harvard Oriental Series, 1976), the Lord Chandamaharoshana says:--

"Optionally, the yogin may secrete or not secrete, having his 
mind solely on pleasure. If he does, he should lick the Lotus, 
on his knees. And he should eat with his tongue the white and 
red of the Lotus. And he should inhale it through a pipe in the 
nose, to increase his power." (CT, 6, 150)

Many points of contact exist between the texts of the Vajrayana 
and Indian Kaula cults. Matsyendranath, author of the KJN, is 
also, according to some accounts, the founder of both Vajrayana 
and Kaula traditions. He is also the human progenitor of the Natha 

The Kaulavali Nirnaya (Agamanusandhana Samiti, Calcutta nd), 
edited by Sir John Woodroffe, is a digest of other Kaula tantras. 
Summarising chapter 18, Sir John paraphrases the tantra:--
"there are people who regard semen and menstrual fluid with disgust, 
but they forget that the body by which they hope to attain Liberation 
is composed of these two forms of matter, that the marrow, bone and 
tendons have come from the father and the skin, flesh and blood 
from the mother. It further says that there is no reason for man's 
disgust for excreta or urine, for these are nothing but food or 
drink which has undergone some change and contains living creatures 
and the Brahman substance is not absent therefrom...All things are pure. 
It is one's mentality which is evil." (KN, introduction, pp19-20)

This Sanskrit word means a spiritual state in which an individual 
may act according to her or his own will. As she or he is Shiva 
incarnate, there can be no morality, but only freedom from the 
rules of the pasu or herd-person who is fettered by the mind:--

"Bhairava said: Listen, Vira Chamunda, to the characteristics of 
vessels and the way of acting. One may be like a child, a madman, 
a king, like one in a swoon, like an independent spirit, like a 
Lord Hero, a Gandharva, a naked person, a Tridandin or like one 
teaching knowledge for gain. The way to be is to act however one 
wills." (KJN, Patala 8)

The Yoni Tantra advocates Svecchachara in Patala 7, stating that 
the ordinary rules for worship are suspended for one following 
Mahachina practice. This "Mahachina" is often encountered in 
tantrik texts--it seems to refer to the regions bordering Tibet 
and China. A person following this path is free of all distinctions, 
as she or he is one with Shiva and Shakti, acting according to will.

Svecchachara is the way of the Avadhuta, a spiritual person beyond 
any qualifications or distinctions. The type and symbol of the 
Avadhuta is the guru figure of India, Shri Dattatreya. The Avadhuta 
is always in a blissful state, one with the Absolute. According to 
Sir John Woodroffe in his introduction to the KN:--

"It is very difficult for anyone to know his true nature. 
When alone he is like one mad, dumb or paralysed and when 
in the society of men he sometimes behaves like a good man, 
sometimes like a wicked one, and on occasions he behaves like a 
demon. But the Yogi is always pure whatever he may do and by 
his touch everything becomes pure." (introduction, p22)

These descriptions echo the mala or chain mantra of Dattatreya, 
in which he is described as "Madman, Child, Devil". In the 
Avadhuta Upanishad (Sannyasa Upanishads, Adyar 1978), 
Dattatreya is questioned by Samkriti:--

"Venerable Lord, who is an Avadhuta? What is his condition? 
What is his characteristic? What is his worldly existence? 
(Dattatreya then replies) The Avadhuta is so called as he has 
discarded worldly ties, and he is the essence of the 
sentence 'Thou art That'. His worldly existence consists in 
moving about freely, with or without clothes. For them there 
is nothing righteous or unrighteous, nothing holy or unholy." (pp 1-3)

"For him there is no such thing as sin or virtue. The ethical 
system of sin and virtue is to protect the minds of the worldly, 
since the mind is the measure of all things and all things 
last only a moment." (CT 8,60)

Again in the text of the Natha Siddhas:--
"Bad smells and perfumes one should sense as equal. Just as a 
lotus petal in water is without stain, so a Yogi is unmarred by merit or sin. 
In one in whom this mental disposition has blossomed there is 
no difference between killing a Brahmin or the Ashvamedha sacrifice, 
nor is there any difference between bathing in all the sacred waters or 
contact with barbarians." (KJN, Patala 8)

Reverence for Women
The Kaulas regarded female gurus very highly and there were 
many examples of yoginis or female tantriks. In Yoni Tantra 
Patala 7 we find:--
"Women are divinity, women are life, women are truly jewels."
This sentiment is echoed in many other tantras such as Shakti 
Sangama Tantra, Devirahasya and elsewhere. A woman is the goddess:--
"Worship carefully a woman or a maiden as she is Shakti, 
sheltered by the Kulas. One should never speak harshly to maidens 
or women." (KJN, Patala 23)

"In Kaula every woman is thought of as a manifestation of the Goddess. 
No man may raise his hand, strike or threaten a woman. 
When she is naked, men must kneel and worship her as the Goddess. 
She has equal rights with men on all levels." (Occult World of 
a Tantrik Guru, Values Vol.IX)

In both Kulachudamani Tantra and the Brihad Nila Tantra, the 
Kaula is instructed to recite a mantra inwardly whenever he 
sees a woman.

"Women are heaven; women are dharma; and women are the 
highest penance. Women are Buddha; women are the Sangha; 
and women are the perfection of Wisdom." (CT 8,30)

The Yoni Tantra hails from Cooch Bihar (Kocha), but many of 
the Kaula Tantras originate from Kamarupa. In Puranic legend, 
this is the place where the yoni of Devi fell to earth after 
the Goddess' body was sliced into 50 segments by the discus of Vishnu.

Matsyendranath -- founder of Kaula and Natha schools -- 
expounded the Kaula Shastra at Kamarupa. The famous temple at 
Gauhati is celebrated. The Kamarupi is hymned in the Kalika Purana 
and in very many other Vama and Kaula tantras.

"It is said that female sadhvikas knowing yoga dwell at 
Kamakhya Pitha. If one joins with one of these, one obtains 
Yogini Siddhi." (KJN, Patala 16)

The Ten Mahavidyas
These are listed in the third patala of Yoni Tantra as Kali, Tara, 
Sodashi, Chinnamastaka, Bhagalamukhi, Matangi, Bhuvaneshvari, 
Mahalakshmi and associated with the different parts of the yoni. 
This list of the Mahavidyas differs from that in Todala Tantra 
(Sothis Weirdglow 1984).

First Patala
Seated on the peak of Mount Kailasha, the god of gods, the 
guru of all creation, was questioned by Durga-of-the-Smiling-Face, 
Lord, 64 tantras have been created. Tell me, Ocean of Compassion, 
about the chief of these.

Mahadeva said: Listen, dearest Parvati, to this great secret. 
You have asked to hear this 10 million times. Beauteous One, it is 
because of your feminine nature that you continually ask me.
You should conceal this by every effort. Parvati, there is 
mantra pitha, yantra pitha and yoni pitha. Amongst these, the 
chief is certainly the yoni pitha, revealed to you from affection.

Naganandini, listen closely! Hari, Hara and Brahma--the gods of 
creation, maintenance and destruction--all originate in the yoni.
A person should not worship the yoni if he does not have the Shakti 
mantra. This initiation and mantra is the deliverer from hell.
I am Mrtyunjaya, beloved of your yoni. Surasundari, 
I always worship Durga in my heart lotus. This liberates the 
mind from distinctions such as Divya and Vira. O Lady Goddess! 
worshipping in this manner, liberation is placed within a 
person's reach.

A yoni worshipper should prepare the Shakti mantra. 
He gains wealth, poesy, wisdom and omniscience. He becomes the 
four-faced Brahma for one hundred million aeons.
What is the use of talking! To speak of this avails naught. 
If a person worships with menstrual flowers, he also has power over fate. 
Doing much puja in this way, he may become liberated.
The devotee should place a Shakti in a circle. She should be 
wanton, beautiful, devoid of shame and disgust, charming by nature, 
supremely alluring and beautiful. After giving her vijaya, the 
devotee should worship her with utmost devotion.
He should place her on his left, and should worship her hair-adorned 
yoni. At the edges of the yoni, the devotee should place sandal and 
beautiful blossoms. There, indrawing the goddess, he should do jiva 
nyasa using mantra, having given her wine and drawing a half-moon 
using vermilion. After smearing sandal on her forehead, the devotee 
should caress her breasts.

After reciting the mantra for 108 times, while in her arms, 
the devotee should caress the breasts, having previously kissed 
her on the cheek. The mantra should be recited 108 or 1008 times 
in the yoni circle.

After reciting the mighty mantra, he should recite the hymn very devotedly.
At the time of worship, the guru should not be present. I am the worshipper. 
If the guru is present, there is no fruit, there is absolutely no 
doubt of it.

The worshipper, using great efforts, should make the results of the 
puja over to the guru. After making three offerings of hands full 
with flowers, he should bow again to his own guru. The wise man 
should, by every means, offer to his guru--putting the hands together 
in the sign of obeisance.

After performing yoni puja using these methods, the devotee attains 
whatever is desired -- there is no doubt of it. The fruit of doing 
puja to the great yoni, deliverer from the ocean of misery, is life 
and enhanced vitality. 

Second Patala
Devi said: God of Gods, Natha of all the cosmos, cause of creation, 
maintenance and destruction, without you there is no father, 
just as without me there is no mother. You have spoken of the 
ultimate way of yoni puja through sexual intercourse. Which types 
of yoni should be worshipped and which bring good fortune?

The devotee should worship the mother's yoni and have intercourse 
with all yonis. He may have intercourse with any woman between 
the ages of twelve and sixty.

He should worship the yoni daily, using the five tattvas. 
By seeing the yoni, he gains the merit of bathing at ten 
thousand tirthas.

The forehead mark should be made from yoni tattva, and dress 
should be of the Kaula type. The type of material used for sitting 
and the worship itself should be of the Kula form.

Firstly, in intercourse, the purified worshipper should draw the 
Shakti to himself by her hair and should place his lingam into her 
hand. The lingam puja and the yoni puja should be performed according 
to the injunctions. Beloved One, red powder and sandal should be 
smeared on the lingam.

The lingam should be inserted into the yoni and there should be 
vigorous intercourse. He who uses this method attains the highest 
essence. A devotee should worship with the yoni tattva, of the form 
of yoni, the deluder of the world, at night when it is full moon, at 
a crossroads.

After going to a cremation ground, offering cooked fish, milk, food 
and meat, he becomes like Kubera, the god of wealth.
A yantra of yoni shape should be drawn on the ground and the mantra 
recited. O Devi, after reading the kavacha, a person should recite 
the 1000 names. He becomes a son to Kalika and liberated. Offering 
meat in a deserted place and repeating the mantra and the stotra, 
a man becomes a lord of yoga.

Having seen the yoni full of menses, after bathing and reciting 
the mantra 108 times, a person becomes a Siva on earth. One should 
recite the mantra after offering both one's own semen and the yoni flowers.

Cooked fish, egg, mouse flesh, buffalo flesh, human flesh, wine, 
meat and ground cereal should be offered at night.
Wherever this great place (of offering) is, therein plays the great essence. 

One should be naked, with dishevelled hair, sitting in the pratyalidha 
posture. At all times and everywhere, the mantra should be recited when 
in the great yoni. One should worship the essence of Devi, the Shakti 
in the form of a Shakti. Doing thus, a man attains the four aims of 
mankind--dharma, artha, kama and moksha.

Sadhakas, together at night, should offer using wine and meat. 
By all means a sadhaka should have intercourse in the yoni, 
previously caressing the Shakti's breasts.

If intercourse is performed in viparita mode, the Shakti becomes the Goddess. 
A sadhaka becomes instantly regenerated and fully alive by using the 
water from washing yoni and lingam.
After worshipping the great yoni according to injunction, one should 
make an offering. The water of the yoni is of three types and one 
should offer it to the Shakti. Mahadevi, after mixing the water with 
wine, a purified sadhaka should drink it.

The supreme woman will be pleased by offering her clothes, perfumes 
and jewels. Whilst in the yoni, one should worship the vidya, at 
night, according to the ritual rule.

The highest sadhaka should mix the effusion from yoni and lingam in 
water, sipping this amrita, he should nourish himself with it.

Third Patala
Great Lady, listen very attentively. This should be concealed with 
every effort. Never reveal it! Revealing it causes loss of siddhi, 
revealing it causes death. Revealing it destroys mantra. Revealing 
it may cause one to be torn to pieces.

The miraculous Yoni Tattva Tantra is the best of all tantras. 
Because of love for you, this very hidden tantra is revealed. 
The only evil in sexual intercourse is disgust for blood and semen. 
He who mixes them with wine is discriminating in worship.

How can one be wicked on account of the Shakti mantra? Having 
worshipped the great yoni, the sadhaka should do puja with the 
flesh of goats, sheep, men, deer, mongoose, buffalo, elephants, cows, 
jackals, lions, horses and tortoises, in a devotional frame of mind.
What point is there of many words? The yoni which has bled is suitable 
for worship. Do not worship a yoni which has never bled. Worshipping a 
yoni which has never bled causes loss of siddhi on every occasion.

What can be achieved by men without the five tattvas? All is without 
result and one may fall into hell and be baked in pots until the end 
of time.

The sin acquired in a myriad of births is instantly destroyed if one 
should worship, offering into the yoni aperture. Combining semen 
with menses or svayambhu menses and taking this in the hand, 
carefully offer it into the Yoni.

One becomes Kalika's son and renowned. Devi is at the base of the 
yoni and Naganandini is in the yoni. Kali and Tara are in the yoni 
cakra and Cchinnamastaka in the hair. Bagalamukhi and Matangi are on 
the rim of the yoni. Mahalakshmi, Shodashi and Bhuvaneshvari are 
within the yoni. By worshipping the yoni one certainly worships Shakti.

Worship giving bali of birds and other living creatures and with 
blood. For the sadhaka who says Aim Aim at the time of worship, 
the yoni is fortunate and gives both enjoyment and liberation. 
A yogin is not a bhogin and a bhogin is not a yogin, but if one 
worships the yoni one is a Kaula, a person who has both yoga and 
bhoga. All worship is pointless without worship of the yoni, O Durga.

Chandali, Lady of Hosts, the foremost one, is the centre of the yoni. 
By worshipping in this way, one becomes my equal, most certainly.
What use are meditations, reciting mantras, giving gifts, Kula nectars? 
O Durga, without yoni worship, all are fruitless.

If one is incapable of giving that which should be offered in my 
sadhana, one may, instead, be exclusively devoted to yoni puja. 
A sadhaka should worship with jewels and clothes. After worshipping 
the great yoni, then he should enter the circle.

Prostrating himself like a stick on earth, one should then display 
the yoni mudra. Durga becomes pleased with a sadhaka who is devoted 
to the yoni.

What point is there of many words? The yoni which has bled is suitable 
for worship. Do not worship a yoni which has never bled. Worshipping a 
yoni which has never bled causes loss of siddhi on every occasion.

Fourth Patala
All japa and the like is to be done according to the rules of Mahacina. 
The nature of yoni worship is thus declared to you, O Devi.
Although to be kept secret, it is revealed from love for you. 
In the country of Kocha, near Yonigarta, on the west bank of 
the Ganges is the renowned Madhavi. Going there, one may gain the 
yoni darshana, O Maheshvari.

O Devi, there I became exclusively devoted to yoni worship each night. 
Practising religious mendicancy, I always go there.
There is no yoni on earth resembling the beautifully rounded yoni of 
Madhavi and the firmness of her breasts.

Worshipping this causes Shivoham. Listen, Parvati! Krishna, after 
worshipping Radha's yoni, became God Krishna. Shri Rama Janaki Nath w
orshipped Sita's yoni. Killing Ravana and his clan, he then went to 
Ayodhya City and lived in a beautiful palace there. Vishnu, Brahma, 
the saints and I myself all were born from a yoni.

What knowledge in the three worlds can match the magnificence of the 
yoni tattva? Devi, without the five tattvas of wine, meat, fish, grain 
and intercourse, all is fruitless.

Veda is the highest of all things and better than Veda is 
Vaishnava. Better than Vaishnava is Shaiva and better than Shaiva is 
Dakshina. Greater than Dakshina is Vama and better than Vama is 
Siddhanta. Higher than Siddhanta is the Kaula who desires the yoni--
like a sun shining in the sky or a veritable Meru to a mustard seed.
The pre-eminence of the Kula is lauded in all tantras. By the power of 
good fortune, one is a knower of Kula. Giving appropriate foods, 
one should please and worship by every means. The best of sadhakas 
is exclusively devoted to yoni puja.

One becomes siddha by using this revealed doctrine, there is no doubt. 
While pashus speak only of the sexual intercourse of beasts, 
in the Divya temperament there is exclusive devotion to the 
doctrine of the yoni. One becomes pure by making a forehead mark of 
yoni tattva.

In this text, feeding Kumaris and feeding Kulinas are the two chief 
things. Durga, there is no doubt of this.
Within a Shakta, outwardly a Shaiva, in gatherings a Vaishnava--
in various forms the Kaulas wander on earth. O Nagandandini, within 
the family lineage of a thousand generations, only a Kulina is pure.

Whoever washes the feet of a Kulina purifies home and body. In whichever 
country a Kulina lusting after the yoni is born -- that place is 
worshipped by the gods Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva. Giving to a Kulina 
brings endless gifts in return. Offering into the hands of a pashu 
is fruitless in every way.

It is impossible for me to speak of the greatness of the Kulina! 
Whoever satisfies a Kulina is liberated by ten millions Kulas. 
I bestow grace only through Kula Yoga, this is without doubt. 
Devi, the state of being an Avadhuta is the greatest of the four 
ashramas of humankind.

I achieved my status of Mahadeva by Kula Yoga and through exclusive 
devotion to yoni worship. The demon Tripura was obliterated in times 
past by your yoni's grace. The Pandavas succeeded in battle by 
worshipping Draupadi's yoni.

In the absence of the yoni of a maiden or a beautiful woman, 
worship the yoni of a sister or of a female pupil. Worship the 
yoni daily, otherwise pronounce the mantra. Do not perform useless 
puja without yoni puja. 

Fifth Patala
The mahavidya, mantra and preparation of the mantra do not bestow 
siddhi without worship of the yoni. One should bow thrice before the 
yoni with a flower, Maheshvari, else the puja of a man is useless even 
in 1000 lifetimes.

Guru is clearly Shiva and his partner is the true form (of the goddess). 
A Kaulika goes to hell if he has sexual intercourse with her. 
The best sort of sadhaka should have intercourse with all other yonis. 
On whoever's forehead is placed the yoni tattva, there too are devas, 
demons, yakshas and the fourteen worlds.

If the twice-born Kulina should recite her mantra during the shraddha, 
his ancestors dwelling in heaven bestow siddhi. Intoxicated, they 
laud and hymn his praise.

If a sadhaka should perform sadhana in a woman's yoni, all born in 
her family become knowers of Kaula. A sadhaka should always meditate 
on the pure yoni. O Mahadevi, one should always smear the yoni tattva 
on the body. If one should place one's lingam next to her vagina and 
then penetrate, one becomes liberated by ten million Kulas and gains 
all results.

In the mutual friction of the lingam and yoni is great sadhana. 
The greatest thing in mantra recitation and sadhana is the outflow of 
semen and vaginal emission.

The powerful sadhaka, following the rule, should offer the augmented 
substance to the yoni region after mixing the semen and yoni tattva together.
From Her lotus feet, (grace) showers down. At the time of sadhana, 
abandon any other method.

The wise man, following the rules of Kaula Shastra, should caress that 
yoni. If one should do puja of a mother's yoni, one should prepare it. 
After worshipping according to rule, one should not have intercourse. 
One should only couple with the yoni that bleeds.

Dearest, if by good fortune one is partner to a Brahmin girl, 
one should worship her yoni tattva. Otherwise, worship other yonis.
In pashu initiation without five tattvas, all is fruitless. Resort 
to a Kulaguru initiating into Shakti by every effort.

If a sadhaka should consume (yoni tattva) whilst only pashu initiated, 
his initiation and his methods cause black magic. Therefore, by every 
effort, resort to a Kulina Guru. If desiring to do puja, resort to a 
Kulina Guru. Only then does a yoni bestow grace -- like Sita's vagina 
for Ramachandra and your yoni for me.

If one should worship a hair-adorned yoni, one becomes like a king. 
All acts become fruitful, no doubt of it.
One becomes very wealthy if marking oneself with a forehead mark of 
yoni flowers. Devi, smeared with red, one dwells in Durga's paradise.

Parvati said: Ocean of Compassion, by what method should the yoni, 
which is the essence of the cosmos, to be worshipped? If you or a 
sadhaka should worship a yoni, how does it bestow grace? Speak of 
this to me! I want to hear all of this because of my great curiosity.
Mahadeva said: A sadhaka wishing to worship a yoni, which is the 
form of the cosmos, should cause an erection and insert it into that 
thing which is Shakti Herself.

The vagina is Mahamaya and the penis is Sadashiva. Worshipping them, 
one becomes liberated while still alive, there is no doubt of it. 
One should offer bali, flowers and so forth. If incapable of this, 
worship with wine, O Durga.

One should do pranayama and my six limbed puja in the yoni region. 
After reciting the mantra 100 times at the base of the yoni, one 
should rub the lingam and the yoni together.

I have thereby declared the manner of proceeding for all sadhakas. 
Deveshi, never reveal this tantra! Do not give it to the disciple 
of another or to the undevoted. Mahadevi, the Yoni Tantra is 
revealed from love for you.

Sixth Patala
If a person should gaze at a yoni while ritually bathing, his life 
becomes fruitful. There is no doubt of this. One should look at one's 
partner's yoni, at another woman's yoni, the yoni of a maiden--in 
the absence of a maiden's yoni one should gaze reverentially at the 
yoni of a pupil.

Never worship the yoni in front of pashus. Using the yoni sadhana 
method, one definitely becomes like Vishnu, of this there is no doubt. 
Whosoever does this is praised by the Suras and Asuras in heaven and 
the underworld. Only one acting with Vira Sadhana is liberated from sorrow.

This well-balanced sadhana is revealed from love for you. If a 
worshipper of the yoni tattva enters a dispute, after conquering all 
enemies he becomes ultimately victorious, Durga. What is the point of 
bathing in the Ganges? What need is there to resort to sacred places? 
There is nothing equalling devotion to the yoni. Acting otherwise is 

Deveshi, even with my five mouths I am unable to speak of the yoni's 
greatness! Listen Naganandini, by grace of your yoni I became Mahadeva!
Whichsoever sadhaka should have intercourse in a woman's yoni becomes 
liberated from the great misery which is the terrible Ocean of Samsara. 
What need of many words in this matter? Parvati-Sundari, listen! 
There is nothing praised in the world more worthy of praise than the 
yoni tattva.

Devi, without it, how could it be possible for Vishnu or Shiva to 
speak? How could I be capable of anything, O Mother Durga? How is 
it possible for me to describe your great receptacle of riches?

Devi said: Mahadeva, Natha of the whole cosmos, cause of creation, 
maintenance and destruction, you have spoken of the acts relating 
to Vira Sadhana. Deva, how can a person be an unbeliever if he has 
heard this declared by you? Mahadeva, share this sacred trust. 
Remove any doubts I may have.

Mahadeva said: Listen, most beautiful Parvati Naganandini! Listen 
very devotedly. Listen attentively to that which should never be 
revealed, even at the risk of your own life. Deveshi, you should 
always conceal this as if it were your own yoni.

The secret I reveal is true, true, there is no doubt of it. 
Practising it, one never becomes immersed in the Ocean of Life. 
The yoni is Mahamaya herself, the lingam is the form of Sadashiva. 
Sundari, offering should be with their effusion and with wine and flesh.

Sundari, one should bring together the yoni and the lingam and worship 
the tattva. One should place oneself in this certain thing and give 
everything to Shakti. One should satisfy using the five tattvas in 
the shape of the vagina, which is the whole universe. Deveshi, if 
this is revealed, one commits brahmicide.

Durga, this sacred trust is known to be of very great merit. 
This sacred trust bestows siddhi and liberation. Deveshi, not 
knowing this sacred trust, one certainly goes to hell. Yoni 
sadhana is the greatest of all sadhana.

If one should worship the yoni after enjoying and drinking, one is 
freed from the sins of ten million births, which are instantly destroyed.
Liberation is achieved through enjoyment. Happiness is gained through 
enjoyment. Therefore, by every effort, a sadhaka should become an enjoyer. 
The wise man should always avoid blame, disgust or shame of the yoni. 
Unless the yoni is worshipped using the Kulachara method, even one 
hundred thousand sadhanas are useless.

If one should lick the elixir at the edge of the yoni, evil in one's 
body or dwelling place is certainly destroyed. What point is there to 
bathing in the Ganges or in other tirthas? Dearest, in this matter 
relating to a powerful sadhaka always worshipping the vagina, what 
use is there of many words?

Listen, O One-dear-to-me-as-life-itself, this sadhana of sadhakas 
is the best of all methods. Unless one uses all five tattvas and not 
just four, all is fruitless. Unless the fifth is included, one is not 
a Shakta having both happiness and liberation. Unless one uses the 
wine of Shakti, all becomes fruitless.

The leftovers of both the Shakti and the Vira should be drunk. After 
doing thus, and always worshipping the Mahayoni, having enjoyed and 
having drunk, one should eat within the circle. One should take a 
tulsi rosary and recite mantra in a Hari temple

After reciting mantra and various legends and lesser stories, 
one should then recite the great stories of Shri Hari. Hari is 
described as being the sum-total of all existence. One should slay 
beasts in that place. (?)

This is the quintessential secret of sadhana, by practising it one 
becomes wealthy. Parvati, never perform this most excellent sadhana 
in front of pashus.

If one should worship the yoni, bowing thrice with a flower, all 
karmas are destroyed and nothing in the three worlds becomes unattainable.

Seventh Patala
Maheshani, now I will speak of the ultimate Vira Sadhana. Whichever 
sadhaka knows this becomes liberated whilst still living. The essence 
of the Divya is divinity, the chief element in a Vira is strong-mindedness.

Wherever a Vira lives, that country is worshipped by the gods. By seeing 
a Vira, one gains the fruit of bathing in ten million tirthas. 
Offering water into a Vira's hand, one becomes liberated by a host of Kulas.

If one should please a Vira, what is there which cannot be attained 
in the three worlds? The time when Viras recite mantra is better than 
any other time.

The best sadhakas should recite mantra within the yoni at a place where 
there is a Shiva Linga, at the root of a Bilva, in the cremation ground, 
at an isolated spot or in a house. The best of all food to use for 
worship is that filling the Shakti's womb. Devi, unless wine and 
flesh are used, one dies swiftly.

Therefore, after eating and drinking, one should then consume 
(yoni tattva). Of all food, this is the food which should be 
worshipped fearlessly. Maheshani, sexual intercourse in every kind of 
yoni is widely praised. One should always smear a line of menstrual 
blood or sandal paste or semen on the forehead. For Viras, this is 
the core of true bliss.

Now I speak of the sadhana giving results above every other kind of 
sadhana. When bathing and so forth, for purification, summons, 
recitation, puja, mental worship and oblation any time is good. 
There is no such thing as an inauspicious time. It makes no 
difference whether it be night or day, the 14th day of the waning 
moon or the twilight time. In the matter of robes, seat, place, 
house, bodily contact and so forth, maintain internal purity. 
One should not be dualistic here.

There are no rules relating to direction, time or place. There are no 
restrictions on the best time for recitation of a mantra, the time 
for worship or rules relating to bali.

One should never make distinctions relating to women and should 
refrain from dualism in the sadhana of women. A sadhaka should go 
to a woman and should touch and look at her. After feeding her, 
one should recite the mantra and consume the substance according 
to one's desire. Thus are declared the characteristics in acts of 
Vira Sadhana according to Svecchachara.

Women are divine, women are life, women are truly jewels. Always have 
intercourse with a woman and meditate, whether she be one's own woman 
or not. That which has been revealed to you is the whole essence 
hidden in all tantra. The injunction relating to Vira Siddhi has 
been revealed from love for you.

At the time of consuming the substance, one should firstly offer 
it to one's Shakti. Otherwise, one may first cast water into the vagina. 
The sadhaka, going to a deserted cremation ground, should have sexual 
intercourse with his Shakti after enjoying food and reciting the mantra.

Parvati, now listen to the time when the semen-menses is emitted. 
If one should worship the yoni tattva, making a forehead mark with 
it, all defects and evils of a hundred births are immediately destroyed.

A mantrin should recite in an old house, in a place where ghosts abound 
or in a deserted place. At the risk of one's life, never reveal it 
to pashus! Vira Sadhana is vain without wine and useless without sexual union. 
Durga, if a Vira does not use the five tattvas, he fails on this planet. 
For this reason, after eating and drinking, the mantrin should 
recite the great mantra. Dearest Goddess, this Vira Sadhana is the best 
of all sadhanas.

What point is there of 100,000 acts of Divya or Vira Sadhana? What 
point to 100 million recitations of mantra or 100 ritual preparations 
of the mantra? What use is there in resorting to 100,000 tirthas? 
What point is there to gifts or self mortification?

Maheshani, without vagina, all these are equally fruitless! 
Employing Yoni Puja, one attains a share of all sadhana. By yoni 
tattva oblation, the ancestors reside in paradise. One should always 
caress a nubile yoni. If one should divert oneself in the urgent dance 
after preparing the cavity of the great yoni, then one is freed from all 
defects and stains of all births by the hosts of Kulas.

If a devoted person of contemplative mind should specifically worship 
the virgin yoni of a beautiful female pupil with scent and flower, 
having enjoyed happiness here on earth, afterwards he dwells in Devi Loka.

In the absence of scent and flower, one should do the sadhana with wine. 
Deveshi, at the puja time he should do Vishnu sadhana, Vishnu nyasa and 
then recite praise.

Eighth Patala
The Kaulika Natha, at the time of worship, knows (his Shakti) to be 
Urvashi, who is womankind in the three worlds. Without sexual union 
there is never liberation, whether from shastras, shrutis, smriti, 
puranas etc created by me. Listen, O one-dear-to-me-as-life, of the 
destruction of the mental predisposition of pashus. Worship a nubile 
yoni in a highly ecstatic way.

Whosoever in this Kali Yuga recites mantra in a supremely devoted way 
specifically to the yoni, the core of the universe, is within reach 
of liberation.

Amongst thousands of sadhakas and tens of millions of worshippers, 
fortunate are they who do Kali sadhana. Kali is the Mother of the 
Universe and of all shastra, quite certainly. Remembering Kali frees 
one from the fetters of a pashu.

After reciting Kali's great mantra, one becomes Kali's son, there is 
no doubt. This is true, true, true, true without question.
Just as for Kali, so also for the vidyas and rules of Tripura, 
Shodashi, Bhuvaneshvari, China-Tara, Mahalakshmi, Matangi, Sundari, 
Bhairavi, Dakshina and Tarini. Success cannot be achieved save with 
the method of Chinachara.

Whatever mantra one is initiated into, this is the best method. Devoid 
of this sacred trust, one becomes unsuccessful and therefore is reborn 

That which is written in this Yoni Tantra all sadhakas should accomplish 
according to their own wills.

Maheshani, meditate as being absorbed in the yoni cakra, with yoni 
on the tongue, yoni in the mind, yoni in the ears and yoni in the eyes. 
Mighty Lady, all sadhana is vain unless with the yoni. Therefore, 
reject other pujas and do Yoni Puja. Maheshani, there is no siddhi 
without devotion to the Guru.
