Question

Hare Krishna

PAMHO AGTSP.

I read a letter with a response which categorized, Maya, as a black witch. There was also mention of getting help from a White Witch.

My question is, what are these categories of the Black Witch and White Witch?

Since the letter is about service involving spiritual books, could you please cite some reference in the scriptures which describes or defines a Black Witch and a White Witch?

Thank you


HpS/ASA - Thank you. Very good question. The statement was by Bh. Tom.

The distinction is kind of on a general basis.

We heard from Bhadra vardana Das Brahmacari many years ago that Vedic culture includes left and right handed Tantra, or Black and White magic.

We follow the Pancha ratrika Tantra, no? It is a Sattvika Tantra.

Radha-rani is the Tantrix, Witch, of White Magic, and Durga is the Tantrix of Black Magic.


As much as we are not pure devotees, we see Subhadra and goddess Durga under who's authority one can eat meat and drink wine. (SB 1.17.38 mentions this, no?).


Then, when Krsna calls Yoga Maya, Subhadra, in the first chapters of the Tenth Canto, He mentions that she will be known by different names because She will satisfy different desires for the materialists.

Is some help.


We can all aspire to see here as the Gopis do in the Prayers to Goddess Katyayani in their Agrahayana vrata in the 10th canto.
