Yantraprayoga (यन्त्रप्रयोग) refers to the “employment of yantras” (in order to relieve oneself from poisonous effects), as discussed in the fifth chapter of the Kāśyapasaṃhita: a Pāñcarātra Āgama text composed of 13 chapters dealing with snake-bites, poisons and curing their venom by use of the garuḍamantra while also dealing with worship and devotion. Description of the chapter [viṣasaṃhāra-ādi-mantra-yantra-prayoga]:—Gautama asks now particularly about treatments for snake-poisoning. The chapter, providing an answer to his query, is divided into three major parts—one, concerning certain mantras to employ and repeat in liturgies (1-24); two, concerning certain yantra-designs [e.g., yantraprayoga] to establish and institute into worship (25-32); and three, the yantra-formulas which are to be repeated by the attending physician as he gives the medication (33-50). In the closing lines (51-80), another yantra-design is recommended for use by those who would seek a general immunity from snake-bites.
