We worship the awful skanda praised by in the most glorious of secret tantras, embraced by the beautiful ShaShThi and holding a cock-banner, a shakti, a vajra and a trishula.

The most secret vidyAs of the great god kumAra are revealed in the saMhitAs of the skanda yAmala also known as the senApati yAmala. Having worshipped the goddess chatushpatha niketA, the dreadful lohitAyani, and mahAmayUrI, and then having propitiated skandApasmara, shishu and the goat-head bhadrashAkha I shall narrate the lineage of transmission of this vidyA:

1) tejodhAman saw the senApati’s saMhitAs, 2) from him pR^ithushiras 3) from him to samadR^isha 4) from him to vishvabhuk 5) from him to viShavalayagola 6) from him to the great bhairava 7) from him to his wife bhairavI 8) from her to vishAkha 9) from him to ku~njaramukha the elephant-faced one 10) from him to sambhadra 11) from him to vIrabhadra 12) from him to ugrachaNDa 13) from him to mahendra 14) from him to chandrArkavAyumuni 15) from him to manugaNa 16) and from him to the world.

The great saMhitAs of the senApati are: 1) gauhAsphandA 2) the analakAntha 3) viShachChadA 4) shaishava 5) the glorious mayUrashikhA 6) ramanodbhava 7) varada 8) lIlotpatamAlikA.

The deity shall be mediated upon in the 6-fold yantra with the door-ways guarded by the goddess chatushpatha niketA, lohitAkShi, lohitAyani and vetAlojanani.
