What is a divyastra?

Use of mantras in warfare used to be very common in the ancient history of India.

These weapons are called divyastras.

Dhanurveda is a Upaveda dealing with warcraft such as archery.

Dhanurveda talks about seven primary divyastras - Brahmastra, Brahmadandakam, Brahmashira, Pashupatastra, Vayavyastra, Agneyastra, and Narasimhastra.

Divyastras are all essentially mantras.

Mahadeva is the governing God of all weapons including divyastras.

 

How does someone obtain a divyastra?

The deeksha of these mantras is obtained from a guru who is already accomplished in that mantra.

Having received the deeksha, the mantra is to be chanted a large number of times.

This procedure is called purascharana.

Then only the mantra works.

The number of chantings required for Brahmastra to work is one nikharva, 1 billion times.

जप्त्वा पूर्वं निखर्वं चाभिमन्त्र्य विधिवच्छरम्

Then it can be used as a weapon.

 

How do you summon Brahmastra?

A simple arrow or even a blade of grass can be energized with the mantra by chanting a few times before being shot.
