Mahidhara's Mantra Mahodadhih (2 Vols.) (Text in Sanskrit and Roman along with English Translation and Comprehensive Commentary)
Mantra Mahodadhih is encyclopaedic in nature; it is verlly an ocean of mantras. Now in Tantrik sadhana, the mantras are of great significance, for they are sufficient means of visualizing the gods. Indeed the mantras are the body of the gods. There is thus a correspondence between the mantra, murti & the tantra. This correspondence is the theme of this work. It is in this context that the Mantramahodadhi (a vast ocean of mantras) enjoys special significance. This Sixteenth Century work, according to Pt. Shukadeva Chaturvedi, is ascribed to Mahidhara who himself also contributed a commentary (Nauka) thereon.
The very titles "Mantramahodadhi" and "Nauka" of the text and commentary respectively are suggestive of the unfathomability of the intricacies of mantra-vidya outlined in the text.
