The dAnavI mantra

There are two vidyA-s of viliste~NgA. The first is the oShadhi prayoga which is known to the bhArgava-s as per the atharvaNa shruti (AV-vulgate 7.38.2). But this lore is only for women. The other is the celebrated dAnavI or AsurI mantra which is known to a proper mantravAdin. He may use it with just an oblation of ghee or with the secret plant depending on the circumstance:
yA tirashchI nipadyate.ahaM vidharaNI iti | tAM tvA ghR^itasya dhArayA yaje viliste~NgAm aham svAhA || vasiShThAyai svAhA | Asuryai svAhA | indrapriyAyai svAhA ||
He then stirs out of his ritual enclosure. If he sees a beautiful woman shortly there after it is a signal of his success.

If he wishes to perform the great prayoga he shall have 4 beautiful women as uttara-sAdhaka-s. He shall first consecrate himself as per the received lore and then consecrate the uttara-sAdhaka-s with the appropriate names. He shall hold a shara reed in his left hand offer with a darvi held in his right hand. He shall then deploy the below form of the viliste~NgA vidyA:
yA indrapriye tirashchI nipadyate.ahaM vidharaNI iti tAM tvA ghR^itasya dhArayA yaje viliste~NgAM vasiShThAM AsurIm mAyAm aham svAhA ||
Then he shall deploy aindra mAdhava mantra:
rUpaM rUpaM pratirUpo babhUva tadasya rUpaM pratichakShaNAya|
indro mAyAbhiH puru-rUpa Iyate yuktA hyasya harayaH shatA dasha ||
He shall offer after this verse with a: phaT |
Then he shall intertwine the above form of the viliste~NgA vidyA with the aindra collection known to the practitioners of the taittirIya shruti as atharvashiras. He shall offer oblations after each mantra of the atharvashiras with a: phaT | Then he shall deploy the mantra:
tvaM mAyAbhir apa mAyino.adhamaH svadhAbhirye adhi shuptAv ajuhvata |
tvaM pipror nR^imaNaH prArujaH puraH pra R^ijishvAnaM dasyu-hatyeShv Avitha ||
He offers the shara reed with: khaT phaT mR^it ||
Then he deploys that which the taittirIyaka-s call the pratya~NgirasaM.
