Ashtagandha and Devdutt or Amuk Yantra Shastra

In this post, I have described the uses of the words Devdutt, Ram, Amuki, Amuk and Amuken in the composition of many Yantras and Mantra and also the use and composition of Ashtagandha in Yantras and Puja-Vidhi.

There are many Yantras, which contain the word Devdutt- देवदत्त or sometimes Ram – राम. This confuses many practitioners, especially lay-persons who mistake the word as standing for the Gods Devdutta or Shri Ram.

This is not the case because Devdutt or Ram is the word, which stands for the target or the person at whom the Yantra is directed. Even if there is no commentary given regarding this in the texts, this word should be replaced with the name of the targeted person.

 Ashtagandha Ingredients and Devdutt or Amuk Yantra Shastra

Most of the times the words Amuk-Amuken-Amuki – अमुक-अमुकी-अमुकेन are used in many Mantra and Yantras, these have to be replaced with name or names of the targeted persons.

Sometimes the words Amuk Aur Amuken – अमुक और अमुकेन appear in some Mantras and Yantras, especially those related to Videshan Karma or the Tantra to separate people. Here these words have to to replaced with the names of the two targeted persons who are desired to be separated.

The composition of Ashtagandha and the commonly used ingredients for making Ashtagandha.

Many lay persons are also confused by Ashtagandha, which is commonly used as the ink to draw or write many Yantras.

Ashtagandha as the name suggests is a mixture of Ashta or eight scented or fragranted substances. The commonly used substances are Chandan, Aagar, KumKum, Haldi, Gorochan, Shilajit, Jatamansi and Kapur.

However, Kesar, Kasturi, Tulsi, Bel or some other substances are also likely to be used. This is likely to confuse the practitioner because there are more than one combinations used to prepare Ashtagandha.

These combinations are also likely to vary according to the purpose for which they are used and also the specific deity who is desired to be worshiped. There are some variations of Ashtagandha that are used to worship specific deities, like Ganesha, Shiva and Vishnu.

Hence, if you wish to purchase Ashtagandha for writing Yantras or for the purposed of worship, it is better not to go into these fine details and purchase the products from a reliable source.

Notes- See the section on Articles on Indian Mantras and Yantras for more specific details regarding Mantra and Yantra Shastra.

  1. मन्त्रों /यंत्रों में जहां किसी का वशीकरण किया जाना हो ,मारण क्रिया करनी हो ,
    उच्चाटन किया जाना हो ,तो साध्य व्यक्ति के लिए 'देवदत्तं'(देवदत्त को )या 'अमुकं'प्रयोग किया जाता है .साधक साधना के समय या साधना उपरान्त प्रयोग के समय इनकी जगह साध्य व्यक्ति का नामोच्चारण करता है .देवदत्तं /अमुकं एक व्यक्ति के लिए प्रयुक्त होने से एकवचन में है .साध्य के नाम का उच्चारण भी अंतिम अक्षर को अनुस्वार के रूप में करना होगा .जैसे राम के लिए 'रामं',मोहन के लिए 'मोहनं'
    .जहां 'अमुकीं '(अमुक स्त्री को )का प्रयोग हो ,वहाँ भी तदनुसार साध्या के नाम का उच्चारण करना होगा .यथा-राधिका के लिए 'राधिकां ',मोहिनी के लिए 'मोहिनीं'.
    उदाहरण के लिए --(१)"ॐ ह्रीं श्रीं अमुकं दुष्टं साधय साधय अ सि आ उ
    सा नमः "(विधि-२१ दिन तक रोज जप करें ,शत्रु वशी हो ),यहां अमुकं की जगह
    अपने शत्रु का नाम लें .(२)ॐ ह्रां ह्रीं ह्रूं नरसिंह चेटकी ह्रां ह्रीं दृष्टया प्रत्यक्ष अमुकीं
    मम वश्यं कुरु कुरु स्वाहा .(विधि-वशीकरण हेतु रात्रि में १०८ जपें ).यहां 'अमुकीं '(अमुक स्त्री को )साध्या का नाम अनुस्वार सहित लें .
    कहीं कहीं मन्त्रों में 'अमुकस्य'(अमुक व्यक्ति का )प्रयोग भी मिलता है .वहाँ भी साध्य यदि पुरुष हो ,तो नाम में 'स्य 'लगाएं (रामस्य ,मोहनस्य ).
    विद्वेषण मन्त्रों में जहां दो व्यक्तियों का विद्वेषण कराना हो ,तो इस प्रकार प्रयोग करें -"ॐ नमो नारदाय अमुकस्य अमुकेन सह विद्वेषणं कुरु कुरु स्वाहा ".यहां अमुकस्य अमुकेन सह (अमुक का अमुक के साथ )के स्थान पर जिन दो शत्रुओं का विद्वेषण (जैसे रामप्रसाद और कृपाल का )कराना हो ,उनका नाम इस तरहआएगा -रामप्रसादस्य कृपालेन सह .

  2. Namaste. If one lives overseas, how can we procure these items like asthagandha and bhojpatra etc, that are used for drawing yantras and the like?
