Rituals

    • Armor of Diamond Serenity: By calls upon Shiva, the sadhu is immune to frenzy of all types for the rest of the night, reduces the difficulty of all Willpower rolls and treats his Willpower as if it were two higher against effects which use his Willpower (temporary or permanent) as the target number. The side effect is the loss of the ability to spend blood to increase Physical Attributes.
    • Rakta-Maya Rituals: A large group of rituals. Each ritual enables a magician to hypnotize a willing audience into seeing one specific illusion.
    • Water Walking: Through a sacrifice of porridge and ghee to Varuna, the sadhu gains power of walking on water.

    • Animaa: The magician can see tiny things clearly, as if he were the size of a bird, a mouse, an ant, a grain of dust, or even smaller.
    • Ash of Agni's Curse: The magician burns an offering to Agni, the god of fire and the sacrifice, while beseeching the god to withdraw his favor from the fires of the magician's enemies. The magician then gathers the ash of the sacrifice and stores it in a box or jar to extinguishes any mundane blaze.
    • Garimaa: For a time, the magician becomes almost impossible to lift, knock off her feet or push in any direction she does not want to go. An effective Strength of 8 resists any force that attempts to move the magician against his will.

    • Destiny's Call: This tantra enables the magician to meet a person having whatever qualities she wants. Destiny's Call draws in an unknown person who meets three conditions set by the magician. The sadhu can set physical, mental and social conditions, with the exception of supernatural condition (such as "a werewolf" or "a Methuselah"). Destiny's Call dissipates at dawn.
    • Leper's Curse: Brahmin reverse a sacred rite and turn it into a curse upon an enemy. Sadhu calls upon Agni, Indra and other gods of light and life to deliver the victim unto Nirriti, the goddess of misery and destruction. The victim will be infected with real leprosy; the leprosy-curing spell from Atharva-Veda can remove the curse, however, if the victim uses it within one month of contracting the disease.
    • Milk of Puutanaa: Undead sadhus can call upon Puutanaa, the sadhu uses a sympathetic link to the victim, consisting of the child's name and the names of the child's parents. The next mild that the child drinks carries Puutanaa's venom, which always kills, unless the child grows its first adult tooth.

    • Aurava: Some Indian sorcerers can conjure aurava, a magical fire that burns under water. The ritual involves drawing a mandala on a golden tray underwater, placing an offering at the center, and challenging Agni to claim his due. When the offering bursts into flame, the magician can carry the tray about and use the aurava to set other things on fire. The flame can be extinguished in other ways, but not with water.
    • Warded Womb: Through an oblation of milk and ghee and an amulet of lead, a sadhu can ban the snake-demoness from a woman's womb and guarantee that she delivers a safely human child. Correctly performed, the ritual protects a pregnant woman against miscarriage and guarantees an easy delivery of a healthy child. It also eradicates any supernatural taint from the infant. Progeny of werebeasts (especially the weresnakes) do not inherit any supernatural heritage. The ritual also negates the condition of being born a revenant and the potential for any other innate supernatural talent other than True Faith.

    • Transcendentally Satisfying Body-Filling: The sadhu performs the ritual at a shrine to Shiva previously consecrated by the magician and used for worship for at least a year. The tantra of parapurakayapravesa requires a drum made from the top of a human skull, the sacrifice of a horse to Shiva, an oblation of soma and drinking the soma dregs mixed with the horse's blood. The spell also requires something that came from the mortal victim's body, which likewise burns in the sacrificial fire. The sadhu vanishes and merges with the victim, wherever he may be. The effect resembles the Dominate power of Possession, but with certain advantages and limitations.

    • Loom of Vishnu: This potent tantra enables a magician to usurp the god Vishnu’s power of cosmic illusion. The magician burns an oblation of milk, ghee, soma and her own vitae within a special mandala, then burns a picture of a scene she wants to create. That scene then appears in solid form – real to every test that mortal senses can devise. Despite this power, the ritual has few limitations. The main ones are the need to keep fire and the inability to directly harm people.

    • Eye of Mahakala: This ritual invokes Shive as Mahakala, Lord of Time and Final Destroyer, to annihilate a small part of the world's illusion. What the magician commands Mahakala to look upon, ceases to be and never was. Everyone except the sadhu himself forgets the target's existence (needs the victim's full name and the full names of both parents for living or undead), because they never knew it in the first place. This ritual requires fast in the midst of an elaborate mandala. And then when the sadhu hovers at the brink of death, one can see Mahakala's face and guide the Destroyer to his target. The disappeared object will be quickly replaced by something else; sometimes, perhaps even something similar to the former self. Still, it probably cannot unmake gods or creatures of commensurate power, such as the vampire pirris. Likewise, the ritual cannot erase the too famous or those who are involved in many events.
