. One of this is bhavana, a mental practice. Initial practices, which are of mental in nature are Japa and pooja, which later will mature into bhavana. One of the essential rituals to acquire this bhavana is nyAsA. NyAsA means to ‘place’. ‘To Place’ the divine energy in the form of matrka or mantra aksharas on the physical body are recommended. These are placed on certain specific parts, of the physical body. Although it looks like that these are parts of the aspirant’s physical body, they indeed represent the subtle body which is being tuned by placement of these mantra aksharas. Hence we can infer that the subtle (sukshma) body will become mantra maya or attain a devata maya. Earlier the gross body in bhuta suddi was made divine; now the subtle body is made so and identified with the devata through mantra aksharas. We can see the removal of mayika mala, the notion of duality by the vidya tatvas, by which our own subtle body becomes the mantra maya
swarupa of the adored deity
Bhagavan parasurama in his kalpasutra says ‘ nyAsam vajra kavacam’ – That this ritual shall confer the benefit of wearing a diamond armor- diamond being the hardest substance an armor made out of it shall endure all hardships and protect the wearing body. Sri Bhaskaraya has pointed out that these nyAsAs can be done apart from the nitya saparya (daily ritual) in the night, hence the stress on doing these procedures daily They are (1) Matruka (2) Samhara Matruka (3) Sristi Matruka (4) Sthiti Matruka (5) dasa vidha matruk nyasa (6) Sri Kandaadi nyasa (7) kesavadi nyaasaa (8) prapanca yaga nyasaa (9) Tripura (51 No.) (10) KAmarati (11) mUlamantra Rshyadi (12) Karasuddi (13) Atma Raksha (14) Atma Raksha (Sadanga rUpa) (15) Caturasana (16) Sadasana (17) navaasana
