Is there any Scripture which provides complete information on how to summon Gandharva, Yaksha and Kinnar?

    Some Yaksha Sadhanas are given in Damara Tantras.

  • @Rickross Thanks what about Gandharva and Kinnars. Also note that it should be summoning ritual not any normal Mantra.

  • Well there are certain Sadhanas like that which are done to make Vetals, Apasras and such celestial beings to work for helping us in many ways. Such forms of Sadhanas all come from the Damaras. There's nothing called summoning ritual in Hinduism. It's called invocation of the deity and which is done with the use of Mantras/Slokas only.

  • You might be knowing about the story of Vikram-Vetala. Then that King Vikramaditya did one such Vetala Sadhana and obtained mastery in it. Similar kinds of Sadhanas are there that involve Yakshas, Apasras etc. Might be there for Gandharvas too.

I have recently bought the KAmAkhyA Tantram. The 5th chapter of this text is called "Mohini VidyA". In that chapter Lord Shiva tells Goddess PArvati different Mantras and methods of "Mohana KAryas" or methods of attracting beings.

There a Mantra is given that will attract every beings when mastered. It is capable of attracting (or summoning like you have said) Yakshas, deities, evil beings, human beings and everyone and even everything.

The Mantra is given in a code (as is quite usual in the Tantras):

ChaturthavarnamAkrishya dvitiya varga samsthitam |
KritvA trividha hAhAntam tadante he dvitiyakam ||
AmkAram shirasam kritva pratykshara prajApanam |
SahsrArdhasya japena phalam bhavati shAshvatam ||

In the above quote the first 3 lines are containing the Mantra in a hidden code which when decoded gives us a 8-lettered Mantra (which is not safe to give here).

The line which is highlighted says that "Siddhi of the Mantra will be attained by 500 chants only."

The utility or the power of the Mantra is given by Lord Shiva in the next verse:

MAnushyAsuradevAshcha yakshoragarAkshasAh |
SthAvarA jangamAishchava AkrishtA ste varAngane ||

This attracting Mantra (Mohini VidyA) can attract human beings, demons, gods, Yakshas, NAgas, RAkshAs and everything movable and immovable.

So, KAmAkhyA Tantram is one such text you are looking for.

In the last chapter of the Brihat TantrasAra, the author says that "I have covered hundreds of Tantras in this book but with the exception of the following scriptures and texts ---- BhutadAmara, JyAnasamkalini Tantram, IndrajAlam, Uddisha Tantram, ShAvara Tantram, Pavanavijayaswarodaya, KAmaratna Tantram, Kriyoddisha Tantra, Yaksha DAmara Tantram, RasAyana Tantram, Brihat Bhuta DAmara, SiddhanAgarjuna Kakshaputa, Krikalasha DipikA etc."

The reason why these Tantras are not included in TantrasAra is that they contain some Itara Yoni SAdhanas in them. Itara Yoni here means "non-divine Yonis" or demi-god Yonis. So, Yakshini, Gandharva, Apasara SAdhanas and many more are to be found in the above mentioned scriptures. So, they need to be dealt with separately and can not be included in the text that primarily focuses on deity worship or DevatA Pujan.

So, those (highlighted ones) are few more such scriptures where the things that you are looking for are found.

  • please let me know that 8 lettered Mantra in chat

    @Ram Bro I'm very much reluctant to give this one. Because it is part of Vashikarana Sadhana and there are many rules to be followed. One who's practicing such Sadhanas must have the full knowledge of what he is doing. Anyways where is the chatroom? The room where we used to chat previously is now dead :D
