Well, in Indian alchemy 3 things are counted as a basic for any work. Mercury, Sulphur, and Mica. Mercury is mentioned as Shiva's sperm where as Sulphur is mentioned as paarvati's cum.
Gandhak Jaaran in term of samskar, is believed to be one of the very much complicated and important process of the alchemy field. so the basic question arise is why is it so important. well, gandhak owns a power to attract metals into it. When we talk about metallic alchemy it does the work of snatching and oozing other metal's impurities which are present in the mercury.
When we talk about purest form of mercury, then micro to micro part of any metallic impurities should not be present in mercury. When this gandhak and mercury are mixed together, gandhak takes all the metalic impurities from mercury.
when we talk about paarad tantra, this is one of the very most important process because in this samskar, Shiva meets Shakti in their respective form of Mercury and Sulphur. here, it means that when ever shiva and shakti meets, they form a creation. so the process of creation from mercury start after this. it may be metallic creation, physic creation or spiritual creations.
there is one of the very rare scripture on gandhak named "Gandhak Kalp", it is said that only 3 copies are there in the whole world of this book. I was fortunate to see this book and I found amazed with various process given into the scripture about the alchemy but specially with the help of gandhak.
Gandhak jaaran is a very complicated process and it has to be done under a proper guidance of the a component scholar only. Before few days we organized a workshop of 1-12 samskars in which gandhak jaaran was done with three different methods and we were very pleased that 19 people learned that process as there are very few people we know who can do this difficult task.
the very basic problem is purification of sulphur. without purifying sulphur, it is impossible to do jaaran. for purification again there are several methods but method with cow milk or donkey's urine is quite comfertable.
then the gandhak is mixed with paarad to prepare kajjali. then this kajjali is wrapped with gandhak on both the side with vajr lep. and this mixture is given a proper heat then for some hours. thus the paarad will absorb gadhak...this process is done 6 times atleast to make that paarad a rare universal thing...such 10 grams of mercury is weighted of laks of rupees.
with this suddhta, Sidhhta is also a requisition. Without proper power of sadgurudev, this task can not be complete. So raseshwari diksha is necessary to do ras karma. when we were in workshop time, the rasheshwari diksha was granted by gurudev so we all went to jodhpur and gurudev gave rasheshwari Diksha to the people who were not initiated first, What a scene, to see sadgurudev's dream come alive. really heart touching.
there are other methods even. here I tried to give some detail about this samskar as people know very less about this rare process. one should NOT practice this without proper guidance as the smoke may affect on hairs and if care is not taken on eyes even, so proper guidance is needed. to organize a workshop was for the same reason. We are even planning to organize a second workshop on 1 to 12 samskars. f
I'll try to give more details on other important samskars even in my next posts. May our divine gurudev bless us all with his blessings.
till then Jai gurudev
