  • sriman,thanks for enlightening me. i have not seen or i am not aware of any other mantras which has this Krom bija except Goddess Bhuvaneswari has!!! dhanysomi !!!Great to hear that, you have mentioned Goddess Bhuvaneswari... i have observed that, in one grantha, they used "tryakshari". In those "tryakshari" moola mantras, they mentioned one moolamantra with "Krom" !!! Can I start jaap using this Bija,without Guru initiation? – userAZLogicApps Mar 12 '19 at 8:33

    Tantras will say only after initiation you can do the japa .. however, if u are initiated into any other mantras then u can do .. but do u know the rishi-chandah-devata of the mantra u want to chant? knowing those is imp too – Rickross Mar 12 '19 at 12:59

The Goddess Mahatripura Sundari holds several weapons like bow, arrow, pAsha and ankusha.

Now, all of these weapons have corresponding Bija mantrik representations. And, among those, KROM is the Bija for the Ankusha (goad).

TuriyamarunAvargAd dvitiyamapi pArvati |
Pumstri kodandayugalam kAmohagnir vyApakohankushah ||

O PArvati, The 4th alphabet of the Ta-varga, Dha (i.e. Dham with bindu added) and the 2nd, Tha (i.e. Tham), are respectively, the Dhanu-bija (bija for the bows) for KAmeswara and KAmeswari; and Krom is the ankusha-bija for both.

NityA ShodashikArnava Tantram 4.66

Here Pum=KAmeswara and Stri=KAmeswari or Goddess LalitA. Note that Ankusha etc are held by KAmeswara and KAmeswari both.

Decoding the mantra can be done like as below:

KamohagnirvyApakah ---- KAmah=Ka; Agni=ref (Ra); vyApakah=O, thus we get Kro; now Bindu (m) is to be added at the top/end.

Also, additionally, Dham is the Dhanu-bija for KAmeswara where as Tham the same for KAmeswari.

These Bijas are useful during Ayudha Puja (pujas done to the weapons).

  • Nice answer.We in bengal use the mantra with Ankusha-mudra for jala-suddhi. BTW, K is vaayava-varna repesenting Marut-tattva, R is Aagneya-varna representing Agni-tattva, O is parthiva-varna representing kshiti-tattva and M is vyoma-varna representing vyoma-tattva, according to the Sarada-Tilaka. And for Anga-nyasa of Kalipuja, KROM is used with KRAAM and KROUM etc for example. – user17294 Mar 9 '19 at 8:28
