Vyādhikaraṇa (व्याधिकरण) refers to “causing illness” and represents one of the various siddhis (perfections) mentioned in the Kakṣapuṭatantra verse 1.11-13. Accordingly, “by excellent Sādhakas (tantric practitioners) wishing the Siddhi (eg., vyādhikaraṇa), the mantrasādhana should be performed in advance, for the sake of the Siddhi.
