Oblations to the Ten Mahavidyas:
Oblations can be offered to all the mahavidyas by chanting the mantra 11times or 21 or 51 or 108
times for each Devi.If the sadhaka is doing a particular Mahavidya Sadhana then he needs to do
the fire offerings of 1/10th of the the total no.of mantra chanted. For e.g If the sadhaka has
chanted 125,000 times the mantra as part of his Sadhana then he should offer 12500 times the
fire oblations ( 1/10th x 125,000).This can be performed for a prolonged no. of days. A fixed no of
offering should be given everyday or the no. of offerings can be gradually increased everyday till
all the offerings for that particular Sadhana has been made. It should end by doing Tarpanam and
Marjanam.Tarpanam is done by offering water to the Devis for a total no of 1/10th time of the fire
offerings (example : 1/10th x12500 fire offerings =1250 tarpanam).Maarjana is sprinkling water
over one’s own head on the crown .The total count for Marjana is 1/10th of tarpanam.( example:
1/10th x 1250 tarpanam = 125 Maarjanam).After the fire offering is done, one should take
blessings from the guru and offer fruits,flowers, and gifts to him .One should also give charity to
temples,priest and needy people.
