Vetal (Betal) siddhi sadhana & diksha

Introduction to Vetalas:

It has been a trend since ancient times to do the siddhi of upadevatas like yaksha, kinnar, gandharva, vidhyadhar, vetal, siddha etc.. to make one's life materially safe and sound which inturn will make a solid base for spiritual journey. In the same series of upadevatas, Vetalas are energy beings belonging to the shaiva class of upadevatas. The first vetal was born from the union of Veerabhadra and his consort 'Krutya- Bhadrakali'. This vetal was known as 'Veer vetal'. He played a pivotal role in daksha yadnya vidhwamsa. He was worshipped as guardian deity then on because of his valour, strength and magical powers. From the first vetal the vetal family tree grew and they came to be known as a seperate yoni. These are one of the high ranking ganas of Rudra. They stand on a very elevated position in the hierarchy of the ganas. Amongst the extra terrestrial beings of nether realms there's a hierarchy established according to their powers which in ascending order is as follows:

Bhoota, preta, pishacha, yaksha, shaka, daka, rakshasa, daitya, daanava, naaga, bramharakshasa/ vetal, veer, kshetrapal, bhairav, Mahaveer.

As we can clearly see vetalas are ranked very high. They're equivalent to bramharakshasas in power. The difference between vetala and bramharakshasa yoni is the nature of people occupying that yoni and the type of karma which pushes them into these bhoga yonis. A bramharakshasa is a bramhan accomplished with the knowledge from chaturvedas, puranas,Upanishads etc.. and having occult siddhis; but following adharma throughout his life and not giving his knowledge to eligible people. Whereas a vetal is a tantrik walking on Shiva-Shakti marga having equivalent knowledge and siddhis to that of a bramharakshasa but wastes his lifetime in chasing mundane goals. Also he/ she may be a yogabhrashta sadhak/ sadhika who couldn't complete their smashan/ vamachar/ aghora-yogic sadhanas. These may also be the high level mantravadi/ tantravadis who spoil other's life for petty gains. This is how the two yonis are occupied.

Vetalas are usually punished with solitude, hunger, thirst, in some caves, rivers, old banyan/pipal trees, mountain tops, dense forests and charnel grounds. Therefore these are the places where people can easily afflicted/ possessed by vetal entity or can go and do it's siddhi. Vetalas have a very long life. Somewhere between 1000-10,000 years. The time for them also runs slower as compared to a human being. There are Male, female and child Vetalas. Females are called as 'Vetalinis'. The vetala yoni is classified into 52 types of vetalas. These names have been extremely secretive till date but for our reader's knowledge we are publicising them. To avoid plagiarism few names are being omitted.

These were some of the benefits of vetal siddhi. There are many more, which one discovers after the siddhi with practical use.

Brief history of vetal worship:

Most famous sadhaka of vetal in the history was the king of Ujjain 'Vikramaditya'. Who got his power, siddhis and accomplishments because of the grace and directions from the old vetal who's siddhi he did. Vetal upasana has been in key positions in Nepal, Kerala and Dravidian tantrik systems and in Konkan- Goa regions where ancient vetal murtis are discovered recently. Many of the Konkani GSB community people have vetal as their kuladevata along with a goddess. In natha tradition guru gorakhnath and kanifnath were exalted siddhas of vetal. They would make use of them to fly, deliver food, clothing and other necessities in jungles and also show magic to attract the masses.

Vetal sadhana details:

- Vetal sadhana is started usually from amavasya, eclipses Holi, diwali, navratri, Vijayadashami.

- their sadhana is usually done in charnel grounds, on a hillock, in dense forests, in caves or on a river bank. Some of the saumya vetal sadhanas can be performed in one's home too.

- vetal sadhana can be done in satvik, rajasik and tamasik way.

- it's a nishachari sadhana i.e. the one to be performed in night.

- sadhak has to be Veera or fearless in nature.

- this sadhana can be done by males and females both.

- sadhana usually requires vetal siddhi yantra, black agate rosary/ rudraksha rosary/ bone rosary, powerful smashan Bhairav raksha kavach, water, panchapatras, rice flour, vermilion, kumkum, rice grains, incense, mustard oil lamp, red hibiscus flowers, peetha, red/ black cloth, red/ black clothes to wear, black turmeric, food offering depending upon satvik/ rajasik/ tamasik sadhana (honey & coconut water mixture, cooked rice & halwa-poori/ domestic alcohol, roasted fish, cooked goat meat or chicken/ raw goat or rooster liver, domestic alcohol, roasted fish).

- there are two methods to attain siddhi of a vetal :

1) by doing siddhi of vetal himself:

Which is accomplished by doing the sadhana of desired vetal for 40 days to 120 days in the home or in any of the above mentioned places. This sadhana includes the special tantrokta Shiva Puja, vetal avahan, bimba pratishtha, vetal vashyakara yantra lekhan, Puja, mudra bandhan of vetal, japa, tarpan and bali. Bali can be satvik, rajasik or pashu bali depending upon the type of sadhana. If this sadhana is carried out properly by following all the rules and regulations then the vetal manifests from the bimba infront of the sadhak and fulfills one's wishes. The sadhak at that time should take 3 promises from the vetal and always keep him by your side.

2) by doing mantra siddhi of a Pradhan devata like Hanuman, Veerabhadra or Mahakali :

One can get initiated into the upasana of any one of the devata mentioned above and do their mantra siddhi according to the gurumukhi vidhan. Then one can do akarshan, vashikaran and pratyakshikaran of vetal with the mantra Bala of the pradhana devata. Here the benefits are that one gets many of his/ her desires fulfilled during the Pradhan devata siddhi, the sadhak has a upper hand on the vetal, is in a commanding position and can never have adverse effect of the vetal sadhana. Only short coming is that the process is a little long and exhausting. After doing the mantra siddhi purashcharan of the pradhana devata one has to go to the cremation ground and perform a seven days ritual. Ritual is simple and not complex. The desired vetal manifests infront of the sadhak in 3-7 days and remains a servant till death.

Importance of guru and initiation in Vetal sadhana:

Vetal sadhana belongs to the category of very fierce or ugra sadhanas. Doing siddhi of some energy means gaining control over it. Nobody wishes to compromise their freedom. So it's very difficult and dangerous to try to win over a fierce and powerful entity like vetal without proper protection and detailed knowledge of the subject. The accomplished master who has done vetal siddhi or who has the pradhana devata siddhi and in depth knowledge of vetal siddhi patal can give initiation. The vetala sadhana went into dark after Vikramaditya. The guru parampara in the Vetala siddhi is broken. There are extremely few seekers who know about this fierce, magnificent and life changing sadhana. Fortunately in our parampara the vetal sadhana is still preserved and gurudev krutyanandanath is one of the experts in this sadhana. The role of guru is very important in this sadhana as he will give the necessary empowerment, strength, protection, knowledge of rituals, energized articles to the seeker without which the sadhana cannot be accomplished. Guru will establish the amsha of vetala consciousness through his own tapa shakti into the heart of seeker which will help the seeker in fearlessly accomplishing the sadhana with success. There many sadhakas today who have carried out the vetal sadhana multiple times but there was no avail. The reason being absence of a siddha guru, necessary knowledge of the rituals and wrong or truncated mantra. To overcome these difficulties, accomplish the sadhana with full success and remain protected from any of the dangers in sadhana a siddha guru is of utmost importance.

Diksha details:

The diksha of vetal involves a detailed tantrik Puja of the Pradhan devata/ Shiva, avaran Puja, Anga-pratyanga devata Puja, ayudha Puja, their ample japa, havan, tarpan, Marjan, bali karma, mahapatra bhojan. Then smashan jagaran is done for invocation and worship to awaken the vetal. These are highly secretive and powerful tantrik kriyas carried out extensively for 3 days in charnel ground or on a river bank. Special tarpan and bali is offered. Homahutis are offered in Then secret vetal siddhi yantra, vetal vashyakara yantra, extremely powerful bhairav raksha kavach and black agate or rudraksha rosary or bone rosary is consecrated. These items along with the shaktipat, blessings and Vijaya Abhishek from the guru results in the siddhi.


Vetal sadhana is a life changing sadhana. It requires one to be Veera in your mindset and actions. It's not meant people with weak mindset, blood pressure or heart problems. A completely surrendered disciple and accomplished master are necessary. The rules and regulations should be followed as they're given by the guru without cutting any corners. Vetal sadhana takes 48 to 120 days for complete siddhi but sometimes it is seen that time required is more. But one should not get disappointed and leave the sadhana. As the patience gives high rewards. Gurudev has given this sadhana to only two people and they've achieved full success in it. Here also strict screening will be followed. Only the people who fit into the criteria set by gurudev will be given green signal.
