Brahmaa Yaamal Tantra
Kaatyanee Tantra describes Rudraaksh from 15-Mukhee to 21-Mukhi very explicitly
Prabhu. Kaatyaayanee or Kaatyanee Tantra has been written around 800 years ago
in Sanskrit and has been translated in Hindi in 1980. Since nobody has ever
searched the texts of Rudraaksh in Kaatyani Tantra so nobody really knows that
all this exist in this Sacred Tantra.
Kaatyanee Tantra is
also known as Kaatyaayanee Tantra. It is said by some scholars not to have been
published in English or Sanskrit. Others say it was a Sanskrit text that was
translated into Hindi (and maybe in English too). Various parts of the elusive
Kaatyaayanee Tantra is scattered across many Shree Vidyaa works. It is believed
that information about Kaatyanee (the Deity) is found in the Karaveer Mahaatmya
and / or Devee Mahaatmya.

Rudra Yaamal in
Controlling Your Hormones, by Robert L Peck
Rudra Yaamal Tantra is supposed to be the oldest Tantra among all Tantra.
It is the source of several other Tantra but the original appears to be
lost. Presently it is available in a Sanskrit edition which is divided
in 66 chapters (Paataal) and written in a simple language. In this Shiv
asks the questions and Shakti (Bhairavee) replies. Shiv Jee says to Shakti -
"I have heard about many Tantra, such as Brahmaa Tantra, Shakti Yaamal
Tantra, Shree Yaamal Tantra, Vishnu Yaamal Tantra, but now he wants to listen
to Rudra Yaamal Tantra." Bhairavee says - "I will tell you about
Rudra Yaamal Tantra - Kumaaree Lalitaa Saadhanaa, Khecharee, Yakshinee and
Kanyaa Saadhanaa, and Unmatt Bhairavee and Kaalee Saadhanaa. I will tell you
about Garland of Skulls Saadhanaa, Bhadra Kaalee, Guhya Kaalee, Kubjikaa and
Shamshaan Kaalee Saadhanaa and a host of others.
In spite of being
lost its some texts have survived embedded in the writings, Paritrinshik, which
in turn is embedded in Paritrishak Vivaran. This Sanskrit text was written by a
Sanskrit Taantrik scholar of 11th century - Abhinav Gupta
Sabar Tantra is one of the very popular branch of many Tantra. This Sabar
Tantra Vidyaa was given by Lord Shiv and Dattaatreya. All the 9 Nava Naath
(Machhindranaath, Kanifnaath, Gorakshnaath.... etc) contributed / composed
the Mantra for this. All the Nava Naath had got the boon from each God for
these Sabar Mantra. Gorakshnaath Jee alone has contributed 600 million (60
Crore) Mantra for Sabar Vidyaa; and rest of the Naath have contributed only
400 million (40 Crores) Mantra. So total 1 billion (100 Crore) Mantra are
there in Sabar Tantra alone.
1. Sabar Mantra have influence of local language, and have words from
common language instead of Sanskrit words. Many Sabar Mantra have the worlds
like "Guru ko Aadesh", "Shabd Sachchaa", "Pinds Kaccha,
Furo Mantra Eeshwaro waach"
