Bija mantras:

 

The word Bija means a seed and describes a mantra which is usually of one syllable. Each seed mantra correspond to a deity, or an aspect of God, all together they represent the complete divinity revealed in sound. This is the ultimate bija mantra: Om Shrim Hrim Krim Hum Aim Phat Krom Svaha Klim Hum Hrum Drim Sphem Plrem Klrim Svaha Thah Prim Tham Tham Thah Thah Sphim Hrum Hrum Hskphrem Gam Blum

Om is the most renowned bija mantra. The Bhutadamara describes it as the face of Kala. Revealed by Mahakala, it is the form of creation, maintenance and withdrawal. The bija mantra Shrim is described as Vishnupriya – the beloved of Vishnu – that is Lakshmi. The syllable Hrim is called the Maya bija. It is also Raudri, according to the Bhutadamara. The bija mantra Krim is described as the Pitribhuvasini, that is the goddess who dwells in the ancestral or cremation ground, Kali. It is also the dravana and kledana bija.

Hum with the long letter ‘u’ is called the Kurcha bija and is the mantra of the Mother worshipped by heroes (viras). The Bhutadamara also describes it as the mantra of Mahakala.

Aim is called Vagbhava bija and is the syllable of Sarasvati. Phat is the bija of the great fire at the end of time (Pralayagnirmahajvala). Krom is called the Krodhisha bija. Svaha, otherwise known as Thah Thah, is Vahnijaya, representing the fire sacrifice. Klim is the deluder of the three worlds bija, also known as Kama or Manmatha, the Hindu god of love, often identified with Krishna. It is the sexual desire bija, says the BD.

Hum (with the short letter ‘u’) is called the Kavacha or armour bija. It is the bija of Chandabhairavi. Hraim is the bija which destroys great sins (mahapataka), and is the light mantra. Drim is called the great Kinkini (small bell) bija, says the Bhutadamara.

Sphem is the Bhairava (Shiva) bija which comes at the end of a yuga. Plrem is the Vetala (vampire) bija, according to the Bhutadamara. Klrim Svaha is called the bija which causes things to tremble. It is the Manohari and ends in Thah Thah (Svaha, see above).

The mantra Prim is the crow bija, used in works of Indrajala (magic). The UK describes this bija as the Vagura. Tham Tham Thah Thah are the bijas in the worship of the greatly alluring Chandika.

Sphrim is the bija of the uncanny Dhumrabhairavi (smoky Bhairavi), also known as Phetkarini. The bija Hrum (with long letter ‘u’) is the single syllable mantra of Kalaratri, the great night of time.
