 Notes on the AlchemicalTransformationof Mercury
NOTE: THIS ARTICLE DOES NOT IN ANY WAY RECCOMEND THE EXPERIMENTATION OF ANYONEWITH MERCURY FOR INGESTION. MERCURY IS A DEADLY POISON THAT WILL CAUSE DEATH ORSERIOUS BRAIN DAMAGE. NO PORTION OF THIS ARTICLE IS TO TREAT OR DIAGNOSE. HEALTHSHOULD BE LEFT IN THE HANDS OF A QUALIFIED HEALTH CARE PROFESSIONAL.
 According to the Oraland Written Instructionsof the Natha Alchemists
Mercury, or Parada in Sanskrit, has a long and detailed history of use. Thepurpose of this paper is to share some of my own discoveries on this fascinatingand forgotten subject.Parada traditionally has many different names, most of which are obscuresynonyms in the Sandhya Bhasya, or Twilight Language. The Twilight Language isan intentional language, intentionally designed to thwart misuse of certainformulae. The use of these formulae were only intended for those who hadexperiential access to twilight states of consciousness, and were familiar withthe unique symbolism of such dimensions. In the Natha lineage where theAlchemical teachings originated, these states where obtained through a thoroughtraining in yoga or union, and its main method, Samadhi, or mystical union. Someof the common words used to symbolise Para are: Rasa, Rasendra, Suta, Rasesha,Raseshavara, Capala, Rasa raja- - and many others. Most of these words aresynomynous with Shiva, indeed one of the most common synonyms refers to Para asthe Ò³emen of ShivaÓ® This is in and of itself, very revealing. Shiva, in theTantric literature, symbolizes INFINITE TIME. In order for creation to come intobeing Shiva enters into Ò°layÓ with his opposite, Shakti. Thus the concept oftime, and limited experience becomes possible. In the process of making Paraconsummable, Para is mixed with this opposite; the only substance which cancontrol ShivaÕ³ incredible potential, purified Sulphur: the Ô
ensesÕ or blood ofParvati. Technically speaking, Shakti is Ahamkara or literally Ô´he I-makerÕ¬the power behind Ô‰-nessÕ¬ the kundalini shakti itself. A human only existsbased on the fact that Ahamkara deceives herself into believing that she isidentical to the limited body/mind/personality. When kundalini is completelyawakened, she realizes that she is ShivaÕ³ Ô°owerÕ® Unfortunately, for theuninitiated or unexperienced person, once this shakti is Ô¡wake to itselfÕ¬ itforgets the limited body-mind, and remembers Shiva. She sacrifices herself tohim and obtains instant enlightenment. The problem for the uninitiated is quitesimple, those who have not trained in meditation and the total loss oflimitations, both of time and of body-mind, will at worst lose the ability toidentify with the body, i.e. physical death. At best, the huge influx ofkundalini will overwhelm the limited energy/immune functions of the body likehundreds of thousands of volts of electricity running through 110 volt wire.Remember, that Shiva is also the Lord of death.
 
Mercury, as the semen of Lord Shiva, is the physical embodiment of the fire oftransformation. It can provide incredible amounts of tejas to an organism, andcan make that organism capable of digesting almost anything. Para can alsoprovide unlimited amounts of prana, thus with prana and tejas, fire and water,para can provide unlimited Ojas, the Quintessence. Because it controls thesethree, it can also control the three doshas, or bodily humours.Sulphur is the physical embodiment of blood, that which the body uses tocreate everything else, and the only thing capable of controlling mercury (Note:blood plasma is called Rasa in Sanskrit). Sulphur is the womb which creates thechild Kajjali, the black sulfide of mercury.Kajjali, as we will see in the later description of the samskaras, is thealchemical child from which all of the other alchemical substances are created.The most famous of the mercury-based compounds is the rasayana Makaradwaja.Makaradwaja consists of mercury, sulfur, and gold. This compound is capable ofproviding vitality, energy, increased immune function and longevity to itstaker. It also is excellent for diseases such as AIDS and different forms ofcancer. The average treatment routine, repeated on a yearly basis, should lastfrom 3 to 6 weeks.Para is known in its purified, solidified form to remove curses, provideprotection from ghosts, possession and Nagas and Demons (yakshas). It is asubstance that brings luck and good fortune to the wearer. It removes blockagesin the subtle body and is very heating in its action; in fact it should be wornonly in the coldest months of the year especially for a person who has any Pittaor fire element in their constitution. This is part of the mystery as to whyShiva is often portrayed on top of cold desolate Mount Kailash: an unattachedmind with senses unattached are the prerequisites for success in sadhana ingeneral, alchemical sadhana in particular.Members of the Bhairavi cult, worshippers of a particularly wrathful form ofLord Shiva, have been known to live hundreds of years through the alchemical useof such mercury-based compounds. Indeed some are said to even have obtainedimmortality. Statues of the Bhairavi cult display some of the characteristics ofthis incredible life extension; beings so mutated from alchemical sadhana as toresemble other dimensional Bhairavis more than humans. This is their actualappearance, yet they may appear as any age to the observer, and do not usuallydisplay their true appearance to the uninitiated.In Rasa Shastra, the Art of Tantric Alchemy, Mercury is considered as aliving substance--a living being. In the process of preparation it goes throughall of the same processes as the sadhaka who seeks liberation, and the child orsoul who seeks incarnation. First the Para is Ô¡wakenedÕ¬ made Ô¨ungryÕ¬ itisÕ fedÕ¬ made to Ô³woonÕ¬ and finally Ô«illedÕ® This Ô«illingÕ is the act ofincineration. Thus, more than mere symbolism, the preparation of Mercury is thepreparation for enlightenment itself, the true Gold of the Wise.The Samskaras of Mercury ("Karmic Processing")According to Ayurvedic and Tantric texts, there are 19 different samkarasof Parada, or Mercury. These nineteen are, in order:1. Svedana2. Mardana3. Murchhana4. Utthapana5. Patana6. Nirodhana
