The key secret of the aShTAkSharI lies in the sampuTIkaraNa with the two ShaDAkSharI-s that result in the emanation of the two basic maNDala-s of kArttikeya: the vajra-maNDala and the ghana-maNDala. When the aShTAkSharI is combined with the ShaDAkSharI (namaH kumArAya) then it results in the expansion of the planar ShaTkoNa yantra defined by the ShaDAkSharI’ syllables occupying the vertices of the yantra into the 3D octahedral vajra-maNDala. Now the 6 syllables of the ShaDAkSharI occupy the 6 vertices of the octahedron, while the 8 syllables of the aShTAkSharI occupy the 8 faces of the maNDala. http://manasataramgini.wordpress.com/2007/05/30/the-code-of-the-ashtakshari-vidya/
