The Wheel (cakram) of the Multitude (vṛndānām) is the Vṛndacakram (vṛnda-cakram). And (ca) Vṛnda (vṛndaḥ) is characterized by Totality (sandoha-ātmā). (There is) its (tasya) ‘Similarity’ (tāt-ṛktvam) with one’s own (svataḥ) condition, (which) is made of the puryaṣṭaka or the subtle body (puryaṣṭaka-maya-tayā) because of the essential nature of the fivefold aggregate or totality beginning with the Jñānasiddha-s (jñānasiddha-ādi-pañcaka-samaṣṭi-svabhāvatvāt). And (ca) that (tat) is the manifested fivefold element (prakaṭita-pañca-skandham). The Jñānasiddha-s (jñānasiddhāḥ) are sixteen in number (ṣoḍaśa). The Mantrasiddha-s (mantrasiddhāḥ) are twenty-four (caturviṃśatiḥ). The Melāpasiddha-s (melāpasiddhāḥ) are twelve (dvādaśa). The Śāktasiddha-s are (śāktasiddhāḥ) eight (aṣṭau) (and) the Śāmbhavasiddha-s (śāmbhavasiddhāḥ) are four (catasraḥ…iti) according to the process of the Fivefold Flow (of Devī) (pañcavāha-krama-anuguṇyāt) in an indirect manner (bhaṅgyā) produced in (this) fivefold way (udbhāvita-pañca-prakāram). Having pierced (āhatya), the Vṛndacakram (vṛndacakram) (becomes) Sixtyfourfold (catuṣṣaṣṭiḥ). There (tatra), the superior method of Venerable Kālasaṅkarṣaṇī (śrī-kāla-saṅkarṣaṇī-apara-paryāyā) is Rudraraudreśvarī (rudraraudreśvarī), the Sixtyfifth (pañcaṣaṣṭitamī), followed by everyone (sarva-anuvṛttā…iti), counted (gaṇyate) unseparated --i.e. the 65th is the union of the 64-- (na pṛthak).

And (ca) that (tat):

“Through the viewpoints of Dhāma, Mudrā, Varṇa, Kalā, Saṃvitsvabhāva, Bhāvasvabhāva, Pāta and Aniketa or Abodes, Seals, Letters, Parts, Essential Nature from the viewpoint of Consciousness, Essential Nature from the viewpoint of manifestation, Descents, and (ca) Unlocated Conditions (dhāma-mudrā-varṇa-kalā-saṃvit-bhāva-svabhāvataḥ…pāta-aniketa-dṛṣṭyā), the Vṛndacakram (vṛndacakram) will be explained (here) (prakāśitam).”

And (ca) the divisions of the letter ‘A’ --i.e. the Śāmbhavasiddha-s-- (akārakalāḥ) are the essential natures of Bindu, Ardhacandra, Nirodha and Nāda (bindu-ardha-candra-nirodha-nāda-svabhāvāḥ). There (tatra), Bindu ● (binduḥ) is characterized by the undivided Light of all the objects (as their Essence) (aśeṣa-vācya-avibhinna-prakāśa-ātmā), (and it has) the appearance of the Moon (candra-ākṛtiḥ) as one point --i.e. anusvāra-- (anusvāraḥ). Ardhacandra --i.e. half-moon-- (ardhacandraḥ) (rests) in tranquillity, (which) still has some objective dominance (kiñcid-vācya-prādhānya-śāntau), (and which is called like this) because of the inner nature of the maṇḍala or the circle (of Bindu which appears here as a half-moon, and) (maṇḍala-svabhāvāt) because of the cessation of the endless crookedness of falsehood (which lies in Bindu) (atyanta-kauṭilya-vyapāyāt). Then (tataḥ…api), Nirodhikā (nirodhikā) has the form of a straight line (ṛju-rekhā-rūpāḥ) because the falsehood of objects disappears (in Her) (vedya-kauṭilya-vyapa-gamāt). By means of which (yat…anayā), (there is) penetration into Nāda (aparimita-yoginām) (in the case) of unlimited yogin-s (nāda-anupraveśaḥ), but (tadvat) (in the case) of limited yogin-s (parimita-yoginām), (Nāda) is restrained (nirudhyate), and (ca) penetration into the condition of duality (takes place) (bheda-daśā-āveśaḥ). And (ca), because of the Reality of Self-awareness (sva-parāmarśa-paramārthaḥ), Nāda (nādaḥ) is nothing but (iti) the Secret of the letter ‘A’ --i.e. Nāda is only Self-awareness-- (akāra-kalā-rahasyam).

The letters (varṇāḥ) (, which) begin with ‘A’ (akārādayaḥ) and (ca) rest in the venerable Lord of the fivefold mass --i.e. the Lord Who consists of the Fivefold Mass-- (śrī-pañca-piṇḍa-nātha-sthāḥ), exist (bhavanti) sequentially (kramāt) for the Jñānasiddha-s, etc. (jñāna-siddhādīnām). Moreover (kiñca), the Jñānasiddha-s, etc. (jñāna-siddhādayaḥ) consist of the portion or power of letter ‘A’ (akāra-kalā-mayyaḥ) (in its) sequential (outflow) (kramāt), and (tu) the Śāmbhavasiddha-s (śāmbhavyaḥ) have the nature of the collective existence of That --i.e. the letter ‘A’ and its outflow, as a whole-- (tat-samaṣṭi-rūpāḥ). Only (eva) the unity or oneness (aikātmyam) of the duality (dvayoḥ) of the letter ‘A’ (akārasya) and (ca) the fivefold mass (pañca-piṇḍasya) is (that) which (yat) we (asmābhiḥ) appropriate (āṅgī-kriyate). As it has been mentioned (yat-uktam) in venerable Mahānayaprakāśa (śrī-mahānayaprakāśe):

Obtaining (gatiḥ) the two forms of the fivefold ocean of the letter ‘A’ (avarṇa-pañca-piṇḍa-arṇa-rūpayoḥ) is unique --i.e. one without a second-- (advayī); therefore (yataḥ…tasmāt), (such) Glory (vapuḥ) (which) is capable of obtaining (alam) the Goddesses (devīnāṃ) is said to be (ucyate) resides in Them (tat-gatam…iti).

By this (anena), the expansion of the difference (bheda-prathā) between the viewpoints of venerable Mahārtha and the Trika (śrī-mahā-artha-trika-darśanayoḥ), (which) is similar (anyonyam), but not (na) perfectly (the same) (atyantam) has been explained (iti…vyākhyātam). Thus (evam), even (api) oṃkāra --the letter ‘oṃ’-- (oṃkāre) is worthy of inquiry (anusandheyam). This (ayam) which (yat) is the Essential Nature of the Pīṭha Uḍḍiyāna (oḍyāṇa-pīṭha-svabhāvaḥ) characterized by Nādā --i.e. Supreme Self-awareness-- (nāda-ātmā) (and) having the form of the Supreme Void or Sky (parama-vyoma-rūpaḥ), skillful in withdrawing of threefold expansion (which) begins with sṛṭi or manifestation (of the universe) (sṛṣṭi-ādi-prathā-traya-upasaṃhāra-pragalbhaḥ). The letter ‘A’ (akāraḥ) is the Essence of Brahma, Viṣṇu (and) Rudra (who) exist as the Ruler of the three states of Jāgrat or wakefulness, etc. (jāgrat-ādi-avasthā-traya-adhiṣṭhātṛ-bhūta-brahma-viṣṇu-rudra-ātmā). Enlivening the Ardhamātra --lit. half-measured that is Turya, the Ruler of the three syllables of oṃkāra or auṃkāra symbolised usually as Brahma, Viṣṇu and Rudra-- (which) has the nature of Nāda or Supreme Awareness, (and) consists of the expansion of everything without separation (sarva-avibhāga-prathā-maya-nāda-lakṣaṇa-ārdha-mātra-anuprāṇanaḥ), is characterized by the letter ‘A’ and ‘Ma’ (a-kāra-ma-kāra-ātmā). The oneness of the four explained letters of That --i.e. of letter ‘A’-- becomes revealed (prati-pādita-tat-varṇa-catuṣṭaya-sāmarasya-unmīlitaḥ…bhavati) as the means of Seed or Source of the Great Roaring (mahā-rāva-bīja-paryāyaḥ). So, in venerable Mahānayaprakāśa (it is said) śrī-mahānayaprakāśe):

“I (aham) venerate (namāmi) only (eva) that (tam) (which is) called Pīṭha (pīṭha-abhidham) to attain Revelation (āgama-siddhaye) (that is) called Praṇava (praṇava-abhidhaḥ), which (yaḥ) is devoted merely to the devouring of the expansion of manifestation, maintenance and withdrawal (visarga-sthiti-saṃhāra-prathā-grāsa-eka-tat-paraḥ) (, and) fond only of Rejoicing in the Inexpressible or Nameless Great Splendour (of Consciousness) (nirupākhya-mahādīpti-samullasana-tat-paraḥ) (that is) the Essential Nature of the rising of (that which) impells adhyuṣṭa or Kuṇḍalinī --lit. ‘of which has three and a half coils-- (adhyuṣṭa-kalanā-udreka-svabhāvaḥ).”

The Kalā-s or the ‘functions’ (kalā) start with Raudrī (raudrī-ādayaḥ). There (tatra), in this order (kramāt): Raudrī (raudrī), Vāmā (vāmā), Ambikā (ambikā) (and) Jyeṣṭhā (jyeṣṭhā) are cling to (upaśliṣyante) the Jñānasiddha-s, etc. (jñāna-siddha-ādibiḥ), and (ca) the Śāmbhavī-s --i.e. the Powers of the Śāmbhavasiddha-s-- (śāmbhavyaḥ) are characterized by the union or oneness of these (four) (etat-sāmarasya-lakṣaṇāḥ). As it has been said (yat-uktam) in Venerable Cidgaganacandrikā (śrī-cit-gagana-candrikāyām):

“In the rays of the Jñānasiddha-s (jñānadīdhitiṣu), Raudrī (raudrī) rises (udeti) through You (te). In the rays of the Mantrasiddha-s (mantra-dīdhitiṣu), (You are) rising (uditam) through Vāmā (vāmayā). In the rays of the Yogasiddha-s --i.e. Melāpasiddha-s-- (yogadīdhitiṣu) Ambikā (ambikā) blossoms (jṛmbhate), (and) in this way (ittham), above (all this), in the Śāktasiddha-s (adhi-śakti-dīdhiti) Jyeṣṭhā (rises) (jyeṣṭhayā). The fourfold Kalā or function, divided by Divine Powers (devya-bhedita-kalā-catuṣṭayī), shines (dīpyate) (united as) the (Perpetual) Resonance (of Consciousness) (svaraḥ) in the rays of the Śāmbhavasiddha-s (śambhudīdhitiṣu…iti).”

And now (atha), the Saṃvitsvabhāvaḥ or the Essential Nature of Consciousness (comes) (saṃvitsvabhāvaḥ).

There (tatra), Jñānasiddha-s (jñānaṃ) are truly (nāma) characterized by Sāmānya or ‘fundamental’ Consciousness (devoid of any peculiarities --i.e. It is Pure Consciousness--) (sāmānyātmikā) (that is) the initial (prāthamikī) expansion --i.e. Pure Consciousness is realized at first-- (prathā), said to be (ācakṣate…iti) the perception of the cessation (of manifestation) (yāmālocanā).

Mantrasiddha-s (mantraḥ) are (the embodiments of) affection --i.e. seizing-- (parāmarśaḥ), (and are) characterized by the desire of the rising of the (real) meaning of words --i.e. Mantra-- (pada-artha-udaya-saṃrambha-ātmā).

Only (eva) the (saḥ) Melāpasiddha-s (melāpaḥ) rest in their own Self (svātmā-viśrāntaḥ).

And (ca) (that which are) the formation of the pacification (vāsanā-śānti-rūpaḥ) of the impressions of such nature --i.e. of such a ‘resting in one’s own Self’-- (tādṛg-rūpasya), are the Śāktasiddha-s (śāktaḥ).

Then (ca), due to the (termination) of this dullness of all the liquefied impressions (vilīna-sarva-vāsanā-upalepasya…asya), the ‘left-over’ is nothing but the State of the Consciousness of one’s own Self (svātmā-saṃvit-mātratā-pāriśeṣyam) (that is the nature of the) Śāmbhavasiddha-s (śāmbhavaḥ…iti).

And now (atha), the Bhāvasvabhāvaḥ or the Essential Nature of Manifestation (bhāva-svabhāvaḥ). Prakāśa or Light (prakāśaḥ), characterized by the imitation of the lack of thoughts indeed (anuharan-avikalpa-ātmā…iva), truly (hi) belongs naturally to Parameśvara or the Supreme Lord (pārameśvaraḥ…prakṛtyā). (He) experiences the Abyss of Light (prasanna-gambhīram) (that is) the Waveless (anuttaraṅgam) Ocean (of Consciousness that is) (amburāśim) Ānandaśakti (ānanda-śaktim), (Which) consists of (His) Inherent Freedom (antara-svātantrya-mayīm), and (ca) Its (tasya) Śāmbhavī (śāmbhavyaḥ) Śakti-s (śaktayaḥ) entered such an Essential Nature --i.e. the Śāmbhavasiddha-s rise-- (tādṛk-svabhāva-anupraviṣṭāḥ).

Only (eva) (when) He (saḥ) is clinging (avalambate) to the expectation of the activity of some waves (in His Waveless Nature) (kiñcit-kallolana-kriyā-unmukhyam), then (tadā) the manifestation of the Śāktasiddha-s (takes place) (śāktā-ullāsaḥ).

The blooming of the Melāpasiddha-s (takes place) (melāpa-parisphuraṇam) in the appearance of some waves (kiñcit-kallolī-bhāve) belong only (eva) to Him (tasya).

The awakening of the Mantrasiddha-s (mantra-unmeṣaḥ) belong to the activity of (these) waves, (when) (they are) increasing more and more (upari-upari-udrikta-kallola-kalpanāyām).

(When) certain (kutaḥ-cit) noise of confusion (kṣobha-kolāhalaḥ) overflows (ut-kūlaḥ) on account of increasing (His waves) (pra-vṛddhi-hetoḥ) beginning with the currents attaining to the banks (of His Ocean as a kind of obstacle to His waves) (vela-ullaṅghana-ādiḥ) like (that which) comes from the rising of the moon --i.e. of objects-- (candra-udayādeḥ…iva), the Jñānasiddha-s rise (jñāna-siddha-udaya…iti).

The Melāpasiddha-s (melāpasiddhāḥ) are characterized by the condition of pramātṛ or the subject (pramātrātmakatayā).

The Śāktasiddha-s (śākta-siddhāḥ) are the condition of the śuddhapramātṛ or the Pure Subject (śuddha-pramātṛtayā), (Who exist) through the destruction of the separation from That --i.e. from the subject, as such a oneness or identity with the subject is called the Pure Subject-- (tat-avaccheda-vyapohena).

Finally (ca), the Śāmbhavasiddha-s (śāmbhavasiddhāḥ) are the Essential Nature of the most venerable Paramaśiva, (Which --i.e. His Essential Nature--) consists of the Freedom of Expanded Consciousness (pūrṇa-saṃvit-svātantrya-maya-parama-śiva-bhaṭṭāraka-svarūpatayā…iti).

Now (, about) (atha) Pāta or Descent of (Consciousness) (pātaḥ) (which) makes clear the unity of Vāmeśi, etc. (vāmā-īśi-ādi-tādātmya-dyotakaḥ) of (those which) begin with the Śāmbhavī-s --i.e. the Goddesses of the Śāmbhavasiddha-s-- (śāmbhavyādīnām) in (such) a succession (iti-ādi-krameṇa) (where) the Vāmeśī-s (take place) (vāmeśyāḥ) in the Śāmbhavasiddha-s (śāmbhava-siddhāsu).

Pāta (pātaḥ) is (iti) a manner of descending (pāta-prakāraḥ) (that is) an investigation of the oneness (aikātmya-anusandhānam) of the wheels of the multitude and of the fivefold flow (pañca-vāha-vṛnda-cakrayoḥ). Hence (evam), pāta is worthy of inquiry (anusandheyaḥ) even (api) in the process of manifestation, etc. (sṛṣṭi-ādi-krame). As it has been said (yathā…uktam) in venerable Kramasiddhi (śrī-krama-siddhau):

“Of Beautiful (sundara) God (deva)! I will explain (vakṣyāmi) this (imam) Samvitkrama or the Sequence of Consciousness (saṃvitkramam), listen (śṛṇu):

The Jnānasiddha-s, the Mantrasiddha-s, the Melāpasiddha-s, the Śāktasiddha-s (and) the Śāmbhavasiddha-s are (jñānam…mantram…ca…melāpam…śāktam śāmbhava-saṃyutam) the Essential Natures of Sṛṣṭi or Manifestation, Sthiti or Maintenance, Samhāra or Dissolution, Anākhya or the Nameless and Bhāsā or Light, (respectively) (sṛṣṭim…sthitim…ca…saṃhāra-anākhyā-bhāsā-svarūpakam…iti).”

As (it has been said) (yathā) in venerable Kramasadbhāva (śrī-krama-sat-bhāve):

“Knowledge (of the Jnānasiddha-s) (jñānaṃ) is to be known (vijānīyāt) as Sṛṣṭi or Manifestation (sṛṣṭiṃ). Mantrasiddha-s (mantraḥ) are said to be (prakīrtitaḥ) Sthiti or Maintenance (sthitiḥ). The Melāpasiddha-s (, Who consist of) the Supreme (paramaṃ) Encounter of Union with Mahākāla the Great Lord of Time (mahākāla-melāpaṃ), are to be known (viduḥ) as Samhāra or Dissolution (saṃhāraṃ…tu). The Nature of the Śakti (which belongs to the Śāktasiddha-s) is Anākhya or the Nameless (anākhyam), and (that which) is called Bhāsā or Light (bhāsā-ākhyam), is made of Śambhu (śambhurūpakam). This (etat…hi) fivefold manner (pañcaprakāram) is to be known (in this way) (vijñeyam) by (those who) know Reality (tattvadarśibhiḥ…iti).”

Aniketa or the Abodless (state) (aniketaḥ) is (iti) truly (nāma) understanding the consequence of the attainment of the stage of Supreme Establishment (parama-pratiṣṭhā-bhūmi-prāpti-pāriśeṣya-parāmarśaḥ) of the Jñānasiddha-s, etc. (jñānasiddhādīnāṃ) through the rejection of the confusion of thoughts beginning with its objectivity (tat-tat-prameyatva-ādi-vikalpa-vikṣobha-vyudāsena) due to the reverse order of manifestation (bhāva-krama-prātilomyāt) in an eightfold (aṣṭadhā) division (vibhāgaḥ). According to this (tatra), the Jñānasiddha-s (jñānasiddhānām) (consist of) the expansion of the sixteenfold nature (of vowels) (ṣoḍaśa-vikāra-prathā-mayyaḥ).

Moreover (ca), the Mantrasiddha-s (mantrasiddhāḥ) are the Essential Nature of the vāsanā-s of the vibrations of the internal and the external senses (antar-bahir-indriya-parispanda-vāsanā-svabhāvāḥ), and (ca) their (teṣāṃ) twelve (dvādaśa) senses (indriyāṇi) perceive (upalabhyante) after accepting (upādāya) the false-I (ahaṅkāram) (which) is closely attached to everything (sarva-anusyūtam) when (kadācit) they descend (avaruhya) from the Essential Nature of one’s own Self (ātmā-svarūpāt) due to the manifoldness of bathing in objects (viṣaya-avagāhana-vaicitryāt). Otherwise (anyadā), (they) turn back (pratyāvṛttyā) from objects (viṣayebhyaḥ), because of the condition of being engaged only in resting in one’s own Self (svātmā-viśrānti-mātra-vyāpṛtatvāt). So (ca), (in the case of the Mantrasiddha-s), a twofold state (dvaividhyam) exists (asti) through the occurrence of (such) a twofold mode (of being engaged in objects and being engaged in their Self) (prakāra-dvaya-upapattyā). Supported by this (tat…nibandhanaḥ…ca), in the nature composed of the impressions (of these planes) (tat-vāsanā-rūpāṇām) belong to them (āsām), the twenty-four tattva-s (from pṛthivī to prakrṭi) is manifested (catur-viṃśati-tattva-ullāsaḥ).

The Melāpasiddha-s (melāpaka-siddhāḥ…tu) are said to be (iti…uktam) the Supreme meaning of the ‘subject’ (pramātṛ-parama-arthāḥ). There (tatra), this (ayam) (Unlimited) Essential Nature (svabhāvaḥ) of (limited) subjects (takes place) (pramātṝṇām) (when that) which (yat) is born from prameya or object (prameya-jātam) characterized by the Jñānasiddha-s (jñāna-siddha-ātmakam) rests (viśramayanti) in one’s own Self (svātmani) by means of pramāṇa or cognition (that is) characterized by the (nature of the) Mantrasiddha-s (mantra-siddha-ātmaka-pramāṇa-dvārā). So (tataḥ…ca) there (tatra), only (eva) through the senses (and not at all through rejection of the senses) (indriyāṇām) (which) consist of pramāṇa or cognition (pramāṇa-bhūtānām) takes place (bhavati) the Wheel of the Melāpasiddha-s (melāpa-siddhā-cakram) (that are) made of the twelve senses (without the alteration between internal and external like in the case of the Mantrasiddha-s) (dvādaśa-indriya-mayam) due to the aboundance of the appearance (of manifestation) (pravṛtti-aulbaṇyāt). This is the meaning (iti…arthaḥ).

Notes:

The Consciousness of the Melāpasiddha-s are the union or fusion of the Consciousness of the Jñānasiddha-s and of the Mantrasiddha-s.

Now (atha), about the Śāktasiddha-s (śākta-siddhāḥ). Śakti (śaktiḥ…ca) consists of impressions or vāsanā-s (vāsanā-mayī). Because of the connection with the Puryaṣṭaka or subtle body (puryaṣṭaka-viṣayatvāt), She (sā…ca) is (bhavati) eightfold (aṣṭadhā). And (ca) the eightfold (aṣṭau) ‘fortress’ (puryaḥ) is intellect (buddhiḥ), false-I (ahaṅkāraḥ), mind (manaḥ), and (ca…iti) the well-known (prasiddham…iti) fivefold group of (subtle elements) beginning with śabda or sound (śabda-ādi-pañcakam). This (ayam) enlivening --i.e. empowerment-- of that (subtle body) (tat-anuprāṇanaḥ) is the expansion of the aforesaid Wheel --i.e. the Wheel of the Śāktasiddha-s-- (etat-cakra-viṣphāraḥ).

Then (ca), being not different from Him (tat-svarūpa-avibhinnāḥ), the Śāmbhavī-s (śāmbhavyaḥ) are truly (nāma) the Powers (śaktayaḥ) of the most venerable Lord Śambhu (bhagavataḥ…śambhu-bhaṭṭārakasya), (Who rise) from the dissolution of all the impressions of the world (pralīna-aśeṣa-viśva-vāsanasya). For the one who knows the Truth (tattva-dṛṣṭau), They (tāḥ) consist of Raudrī, Vāmā, Ambā (and) Jyeṣtḥā --i.e. the Mothers of the Jñānasiddha-s, Mantrasiddha-s, Melāpasiddha-s and Śāktasiddha-s, respectively-- (ambā-jyeṣṭhā-vāmā-raudrī-mayyaḥ…iti).
