Thanthra sasthra is sadhana sastra,the object of which is to reach the heighest truth, the “Brahman”. It explains the manifestation of vicious nature from “sachidanandom” in a systematic order. “Sreevidhya Upasana”is the soul of thantra sastra, which any aspirant can learn through a “Guru”(teacher).It is following a “deeksha kramom” and not based on religion or cast. Any person who wishes to attain the supreme realm and the Guru feels him fit for the cause can take the deeksha and practice upasana. Many a time Guru may check the horoscope of the aspirant and check his lagna, fifth and ninth house to find out his “ishtadevatha” (deity of his previous life) and conform his decision of accepting him as his student. While practicing he may pass through many experiences and he needs close guidance from guru to get through all these stages successfully.
In “sreevidya upasana” the centre of upasana is “THE MEERUCHACKRA”. It is an yanthra made out of pure copper, silver or gold which represent the entire universe (meru made of alloy is not permitted). This yanthra made up of 10 levels starting from square shape till reaching a point represents the roots of creation. In other words it also expresses the contraction and expansion of universe. The principle is such that by worshipping a matter in its highest level of mind the difference between the worshipper and the worship pie vanishes, so that the whole of universe will be one in the experience level. This upasana comes under saktha school of worshipping.
Saktha school of worshipping is divided in to 10 schools(dasa mahavidya), they are :

These are the twenty five Vishnu thatwas and along with this comes
When you go deep in to the study of prusha(male form) and prakruthi(female form) you must need a correct guidance from guru and for that you need to take deeksha under any of these schools.
