Mantra and Prayoga

Updated on January 16, 2015

What is Mantra ?

Mantra is a word or group of words used to be chanted in a prescribed way for getting specific results. In Indian tantra texts and vedas, we could find thousands of Mantras. Mantras are most commonly in Sanskrit language.

Mantra Siddhi

Mantra will give intended result to the performer or sadhaka, only after he gets mantra siddhi or mastery over that mantra. Tantric scripts stipulate rules for obtaining mantra siddhi. These rules may vary for mantra to mantra.

Mantra God or Deity

Every mantra has a deity. On satisfaction of the performance of the sadhaka, the deity of the mantra blesses the performer with mastery over the mantra. After attaining mantra siddhi, the sadhaka makes proyoga or use that mantra power for specific purposes.

Prayoga and its types

Proyoga in sanskrit means the way of usage.There are eight types of Proyoga. They are called as asta karma proyoga. In sankrit asta means eight, karma means actions. They are

1. Vasya

2. Mohana

3. Akarsana

4. Bedhana

5. Stambhana

6. Vidvesana

7. Uchhadana

8. Marana.

1. Vasya

Vasya means bringing a person or thing under one's control. One can bring anybody or anything under one's control by this prayoga. By performing this prayoga one can get control over a particular man or woman or wealth or health or even god. One can make prayoga on a wild animal and get control over it. This proyoga is mostly used by men to attract women. You can attract your ista devatha or God and put under your control.

2. Mohana

Mohana in Sanskrit means Seduction. By this prayoga one can seduce or entice a person or thing. Most commonly this prayoga is used to entice woman. But one can make mohana prayoga for getting wealth, health, peace etc.

3. Akarsana

Akarsana means bringing a person or thing to the place of the sadhaka. By this prayoga, one can use his/her mantra power to bring back his/her lost love, stolen articles, etc., If it is rightly used one can make presence of Ista devata or God too.

4. Bedana

Bedana means making anyone out of his senses. By using this prayoga, a sadhaka can make any person deprived of his senses temporarily or permanently. It was told that the author of the famous book titled The Serpent Power, Sir John Woodroffe had had one such experience. Then he was a judge in a colonial Indian court, hearing a particular case in which he could not come into conclusion. He felt he was deprived of all his senses. It was later found that a tantric bakiri in court campus was making a tantric prayoga on him. This incidence made Woodroffe curious and spent rest of his life studying Indian tantra and came out with the famous book The serpent power.

5. Stambhana

Sthambthana in sanskrit means making anyone or anything still. You can stop someone from doing a certain thing. One can stop even fire from burning by this prayoga. You can stop raining. You can stop your enemy from doing any harm to you.

6. Vidvesana

Videvesana is making a split among two or more in a group. You can split your enemies by making them quarrel each other. You can split two lovers. But anything done with a bad intention will bounce back on you in some way or other. With this in mind, you can use this prayoga for benign results.

7. Uchadana

Uchadana is making anyone go away from a particular place. This is diametrically opposite to Akarshana. By this prayoga, you can drive your enemy away from you. You can drive away debts, ill health from you. Any prayoga with benign intention will definitely yield good results.

8. Marana

Marana means killing. By this prayoga, you can kill your enemy, a wild animal and like that. But anything done with bad intention will definitely bounce back on you. In stead you can kill your bad luck, ill health, debts, misery too. Marana prayoga should be used very carefully.


By attaining mantra power one can do good or bad things. The mantra deity will be with the Sadhaka or performer and safeguard him. The deity will leave the sadhaka, if he starts making prayogas with bad intentions and the sadhaka will ultimately be in trouble.

This is only an introductory article. In future I will cover each and every bit of information available in yoga, tantra, mantra texts and practice.
