In general, guru is mandatory for mantra initiation. Siddhi may never happen without (physical, living, human) guru initiation.

But recently I heard that, if there is no availability of physical living guru, then a person can write matra on a paper and after keeping it at the feet of lord Siva can start chanting the mantra.

Which scripture describes this procedure of attaining mantra siddhi without any initiation from 'physical, living, human' guru?
