In the nirvana sundarI krama, a peculiar procedure is adopted for performing the extremely essential mahAShoDhA nyAsa. The krama outlined below is specific to kAdi vidyA.

Every day, the nyAsa is performed at midnight, after the customary japa of ekAkSharI parA and before the japa of the turIya sandhyA devatA. For the siddhi of nyAsAdhikAra, it is mandatory to precede each of the nyAsas with haMsa ShoDhA nyAsa. The devatA for haMsA ShoDhA nyAsa is bhagavatI haMsa kAlI or brahma kAlI, who is kAdividyeshvarI. The sAdhaka is reminded of dire consequences by bhagavatI bimbAmbikA (quoting UrdhvAmnAya tantra), if he fails to perform haMsa ShoDhA nyAsa before any of the following nyAsas.
