Dear all, I am moving from the other forms of Tara Ma just to bring more variations for the reader. I ensure that I will be outlining the sadhanas for the various shakthi forms soon.
Now lets focus on the ethereal being called Yakshini. Yakshini is the feminine counter part of Yaksha and its Kubera who is the king to the Yakshas. So there are some schools of practice which believe that, worshiping Shiva as Mrityunjaya followed by Kubera and a request to send a Yakshini should be the order. But I have an alternate school of belief and practice.
There is a difference in the tantra and aghora teachings regarding Yakshini. According to tantra, a Yakshini can bring in all comforts and also play the pseudo role of your mother, sister, lover etc as per your demand. But for aghori, these considerations involve a lot of karmas and hence Yakshini should be invoked just to have an understanding about the being.
There are 30+ Yakshini and I am outlining just a few of them and their variant sadhanas and anustanas. Just like earlier, I will remove a vital element as this series is just for scholarly interests and not for practice.
Dear all, let me outline the Yakshini sadhana for all the readers.

Yakshini Sadhana Siddhi
Dear all, let me outline the vidhi for the siddhi.
The moola mantra has to be recited for 1 lakh times. Then with 10,000 number uchhamalari flower , perform a homa. The siddhi will be bestowed.
Now for aghora and tantra, there is a huge deviation in the culmination to complete perfection (siddhi). Let me outline the final steps as per tantra.
After finishing the homa of 10,000, the person should go to the shade of a baniyan tree in the night. This should be tree in the remote location devoid of human presence. Sitting there, he should recite the moola mantra for 1000 times each, 6 days. On the seventh day, the place is sanctified with sandal water in plenty followed by lighting a ghee lamp and chant the mantra without fear till midnight. Then by midnight, you will hear music, sounds of bells etc. the Yakshini will approach you in whichever form you desire and will ask for ritual sex. This ritual gets completed with the culmination of siddhi.
But in aghora, the treatment is different. Before the final ritual, Kubera is invoked as he is the king of the Yakshas and Yakshis. Then the process is repeated like before till the last moment; as same as tantric rules. But in the last moment, when she approaches, the aghori requests her to be the ‘ma’ for him. So the Yakshini will take that form as he wishes.
Vada Yakshini Sadhana
Dear all let me move into the other Yakshini sadhanas specific to a form of Yakshini. Let me start that with Vada Yakshini.
Astra – shleem pashu hum phat
Moola – eahyeahi yakshi yakshi maha yakshi vadavrikshanivasini sheekhram mae sarwasaukyam kurukuru swaha
- eahyeahi hridayaya nama:
- yakshi yakshi sirase swaha

- kurukuru swaha astraya phat
Chanda – vishrava: rishi:, anustup chanda:, yakshini devataa Dhayana shloka – omitting on purpose
Peeta shakti – hreem nama:
Peeta samashti – Om manoharaaya yakshini yogapeetayaya nama:
Peeta pooja – gurwathi jnanatmakam (28) kaamadi navashakthi along with peeta samishti from beginning to end, do pooja with water.
Moorthi kalpana – peeta shakthi ,moola , yakshinimoorthayae nama: Upachara – Om hreem om nama:

Dwadastas and naivedya all as per bhadrakaali pooja and conclude in the same way.
|| iti vada yakshini pooja samaptam ||
Vada Yakshini Sadhana and Siddhi
Dear all let me outline the siddhi and specific details for this Yakshi.
For attaining the perfection or siddhi one has to do the japa for 2 lakh times the moola mantra with samyama and vrutha. Then after this; 20,000 numbers of ucchamalari flower has to be offered as homa.
The last steps are similar to that mentioned in the generic Yakshi sadhana. The difference between the two Yakshinis are Vada Yakshini can be used not only for attaining the desires but also for annihilation of enemies. There is a risk which is applicable to normal tantriks in this regard. If you send a Vada Yakshini against your enemies and she fails in the attempt, your life is at risk. She comes back and creates havoc. So this is one of the dangerous among Yakshini Ma’s.
Secondly she prefer to stay in big trees with scented flowers. In this form she can be invoked and kept as a protector for family. It was a tradition that tantric families in vamachara has a Vada Yakshini invoked and kept for generations in the big tree in the premises.
From the perspective of an aghori, she is Ma and invoking her is similar to that of any other Yakshini. But aghori will ask for celestial mileage and help for spiritual wattage for his realization from this Ma.
Madanamekhala Yakshi Sadhana
Dear all, now let me outline another form of yakshini called madanamekhala yakshini and her sadhana now.
Astra mantra : sahasraara hum phat
Moola : Om kraum madana mekhale nama: swaha
- Om hridayaya nama:
- kraum sirasae swaha
- madanashikaayae vashal
- mekhalayae kavachaya hum
- namau nethraabhyaam vaushaat
- swaaha astraaya phat
Chanda: vishrava : rishi :, pankthi chanda, madana mekhala devata Dhayana: (omitted on purpose)
Peeta shakthi , peeta samasti and peeta pooja as per the vada yakshini sadhana Moorthi kalpana – peeta shakthi, moola, madana mekhalaa moorthayaee nama Upachara : Om hreem om nama:
Aavaahana : as per bhadrakaali pooja ( will outline during shakti pooja variants)
Ayudha nyasa :
- poogaaya namah
- taamboolaaya namah
Bhusha nyasa, upahara moorthi pooja to be done as in case of vada yakshini Dwadastas, naivedya etc should be done as per bhadrakaali pooja
|| iti madana mekhalayakshi pooja samamptam ||
Madanamekhala Yakshi Siddhi
Dear all, let me outline how one gets siddhi with the madanamekhala yakshi sadhana.
The aspirant have to chant the moola mantra for 1 lakh times and then do homa of red shoe flower for 10,000 times. Then do the pooja as per above. The perfection will be bestowed upon.
If the aspirant sits under the ucchamalari tree for 14 days and do japa of 10,000 numbers and a homa of 1000 numbers of the moola mantra with ucchamalari flower, he/she will be given eyeliner by yakshini. On wearing this, hidden wealth residing on the earth will be revealed to him/her.
As an aghori, this last sadhana is not performed as it’s a kamya rite for material benefits. To know the Yakshini Ma; is all what aghori looks for. Its a spiritual attainment for him, not a materialistic pursuits.
Vishala Yakshini Sadhana
Dear all, let me outline the vishalayayakshini sadana

|| iti vishalayakshi sadhana samaptam ||
Vishala Yakshini Siddhi
Dear all, let me outline the methodology for vishala yakshini siddhi
With the dhyana and vrutha, the aspirant has to chant the moola mantra for 8 lakh times. With kuvala, kariveera leaves, amala, kusa grass separately 20,000 numbers as homa and pooja, then the perfection will be bestowed.
After this, if a sankalpa of the yakshini dragging the enemies by a noose, touching by a rope and with a heavy thorned stick beating on the head and chant 10,000 times. Now with the cow dung obtained from the forest, do a homa of 10,000 numbers. Then drop those ashes of homa in the water of wells and place he walks. The enemies either will die or will leave the locations and move away.
The sadhak becomes able to vanquish enemies by the very thought about them.
For an aghori, there are no enemies in the world as persons. But there are certain roadblocks that can be removed by this sadhana. The biggest roadblock for a sadhak in the path of aghora is the vasanas. The vasanas can act as noose attaching the sadhak to the material world. The request to this yakshini now will be to vanquish those thoughts and deeds that cause attachment of vasana to the realms of materialistic world.
