The Oath & Effects Of Yamantaka
In the story of fighting for throne, we have already read
about the battle between Trilokavijaya and Yamantaka. Now let us look in more
detail about the oath and the corresponding effects in the perspective of
According to ‘Commentry To Maha Virocana Sutra’ (大日经疏), Trilokavijaya means the
subjugation of 3 poisons commonly known as: greed (贪), anger (憎)
and ignorance (痴). It is due
to our past greed that we are where we are at this life; and our greed of this
life shall be carried forward to our next life. Hence, the practice of
Trilokavijaya is mainly to overcome deva-mara (天魔/deva).
On the other hand, the oath of Yamantaka is mainly to
overpower manusa-mara (人魔/human);
hence, in the fighting for throne, it best to use Yamantaka ritual to take care
of human beings as the power of Yamantaka is much more against the
Trilokavijaya according to the individual oath. Having said so, there is one
shortcoming about Yamantaka especially when a practitioner also performs fire
puja for Yamantaka. This shortcoming is that this practitioner will harness an extremely wrathful and yet hatred heart that will inadvertently
causes many living creatures to lose their lives:
In the first phase, kids and dependents of the person will
In the second phase, his close ones, master/boss, husband or
wife shall die.
In the third phase, all of his enemies or the ones he hate
So, according the religious perspective, in order to subdue
human beings, then Yamantaka is more effective that the Trilokavijaya.
I was once a practitioner of Yamantaka Tantra. Well, true as
mentioned above, at the beginning of the Yamantak practice, I would accidentally
killed chickens, ducks, snakes etc; until some of the innocent people also be
harmed and even dead. Finally, I had to drop the practice of Yamantaka to avoid
harming others. Hence, I would like to advice all inspired to practise
Yamantaka rituals to exercise caution, and he/she should understand the oath of
his/her own Satyadevata. Or this person shall be sorry fairly soon.
It is certainly true that very few people would practice
Yamantaka Tantra now days, but we will never know. No one will tell you these
types of experiences, not even your own guru Rinpoche.
