What are views of different sects of hinduism ( like Shaivism, Shaktism, etc) about exorcism and is there any vedic reference to it?

    Atharva Veda has some mantras for exorcism, but one must be careful in the term exorcism as there is no 'devil' in Vedanta. Also, these mantras should be done only by a brahmin versed in the Atharva Veda as any mispronunciation can have the opposite effect. – Swami Vishwananda Jun 21 '16 at 5:34
  • @SwamiVishwananda Do you think that all Hindu exorcists today, have studied the Vedas? – Good Guy Jun 21 '16 at 13:13
  • No, most are charlatans that prey are weak minds. – Swami Vishwananda Jun 21 '16 at 14:35
