Varahi is described as residing in a person's navel and governs the manipura , svadhisthana and muladhara chakras. Varahi is usually depicted with her characteristic sow face on a human body with a black complexion comparable to a storm cloud.
She is depicted here as part of the group of seven Matrikas. The Rupamandana says she carries a ghanta bell , a chamara a yak's tail , a chakra discus and a gada mace. The Matsya Purana omits the ghanta and does not mention the fourth weapon. The fourth hand is held in the Abhaya "protection gesture" or the Varada Mudra "blessing gesture". Another description says her hair is adorned with a garland with red flowers.

She holds a staff and drinking skull-cup kapala. The Vishnudharmottara Purana describes a six-armed Varahi, holding a danda staff of punishment , khetaka shield , khadga sword and pasha noose in four hands and the two remaining hands being held in Abhaya and Varada Mudra "blessing gesture".
Such a Varahi sculpture is found at Abanesi, depicted with the dancing Shiva. The fish and wine-cup kapala are special characteristics of Tantric Shakta images of Varahi, the fish being exclusive to Tantric descriptions. In Vaishnava and Shakta images, she is depicted as either standing or seated on a lotus pitha pedestral or on her vahana a buffalo or on its head, or on a boar, the serpent Shesha, a lion, or on Garuda the eagle-man vahana of Vishnu.
In Tantric Shakta images, the vahana may be specifically a she-buffalo or a corpse pretasana.
The goddesses are flanked by Virabhadra Shiva's fierce form and Ganesha Shiva's elephant-headed son and wisdom god. Varahi is a ratri devata night goddess and is sometimes called Dhruma Varahi "dark Varahi" and Dhumavati "goddess of darkness". According to Tantra, Varahi should be worshipped after sunset and before sunrise.
Parsurama Kalpasutra explicitly states that the time of worship is the middle of the night.
One should worship using the letters of the Varahi vidya in the centre of the yantra , and should then worship the attendants in the left, right and centre triangles who are Krodhini, Stambhini and Chanda-Ucchanda, placing Hrim in front of their respective names and Namah behind. In the six angles starting from the east and going anticlockwise one should worship Brahmi and so forth.
Then in the circles one should worship Mahalakshmi Panchami. After giving animal sacrifice using the sixteenth syllable, and after one has worshipped all with ritual accessories, one should recite the vidya or times.
Daily, one should do sacrifice using pure and good sesamum, rice or ghee, then the vidya becomes successful. A sage of controlled senses, able to perform sacrifice, should do puja at the twilights.
He should recite the vidya , times -- giving oblation of one tenth part of that. After doing the worship and invocation, the mantra becomes successful -- if one is compassionate, devoted to Guru, contented, patient and of peaceful mind. If one should perform a rite for a specific application devotedly, it gives whatever is desired immediately, giving the favour and grace of Devi to the tireless practitioner.
One should meditate on Devi as having the body of a girl from the throat down, resembling the colour of molten gold, her large, fiery and tawny haired head being that of a sow.
She has three eyes and seven arms which hold a discus, a conch, a hook, a lotus, a noose, and a club. She shows the mudras dispelling fear and granting boons. One should think of her as being comfortably seated on the shoulders of Garuda. In daily worship one should meditate on her and her Shaktis in this way.
In particular applications, one should recall Devi and her Shaktis as being seated on lions, tigers, elephants, horses or Garudas.
According to that which one wishes to achieve in specific meditations, one should think of her as having a dark green, red, yellow, black or purple body. In rituals for subjugation, one should think of Panchami, and recite her mantra as red, surrounded by hosts of beautiful red Shaktis. In worship for paralysing, one should meditate on her as yellow, wearing yellow garments, garlanded with yellow flowers, wearing yellow jewels, and smeared with yellow unguent, surrounded by yellow Shaktis.
In a difficult pass one should think of her as being seated on a great bodied lion which is of a dark green colour, surrounded by Shaktis similar to herself, offering recitation of the Vidya to the central Shakti.
If the mantrin should meditate on these as his own self, he attains an exalted and wealthy status. If one should remember Devi, with her Shaktis, on lions, Garudas, elephants, Sharabhas, horned creatures, dogs, boars, buffaloes and serpents with terrific teeth and cruel and crooked claws, whether assailed by thieves, unexpected attacks, by anxieties about being injured, by pisachas, by bhutas, by pretas, away from one's family, or in a defile in the wilderness, or on lonely roads, or in a forest, or on a mountain peak, then in this way one becomes free from anxiety and happy.
Whether in wars, in fearful situations, in falls from status , or attacked by chariots and swords, or in difficult passes, having remembered her one becomes supremely victorious. If one should meditate, in states of terrible war, on Devi as blue, with a terrible appearance, seated on an elephant, holding a nail, a knife, a sword, an arrow, a club, a sickle, and a discus in her right hands: and with her left making the threatening gesture, and holding shield, skin, bow, damaru, plough, noose and conch: surrounded by Shaktis like her; the Shaktis seated on elephants, assaulting all the missiles of the enemy, and attacking them with maces, all moving about, like red banners, then the enemy flees, pursued by swarms of blue Shaktis howling terribly, berserk.
One should meditate on Devi in the form previously described during great wars, as being in the centre of the sun's orb, her body marked with red tridents. If one should then recite the vidya with concentrated mind, after invoking her into water via breath during rituals for a period of seven days, one's enemy will die from fever. If one should think of Devi, surrounded by her attendants, and recite her vidya, for three days, in water, as breaking in pieces the body of one's enemy, which is then consumed by fierce jackals and corpse eaters and flesh eating dogs, then, after remembering her, one gains deliverance.
If one should think of Devi as of an effulgent purple colour, and do recitation visualising her cleaving the target's tongue, heart and feet, one slays enemies. If, after remembering Devi as of a yellow colour, one should worship according to the rule, the enemy experiences harm, anxiety in speech, becomes disputatious, and is conquered in battle.
After thinking of this Devi as seated on Garuda, and surrounded by numbers of Shaktis seated on Garudas, and the skies being thick with an array of hosts of unseated Garudas, then one becomes victorious over an army of enemies at a distance, instantly putting them to flight. With her eight arms holding axes, and being surrounded by a circle of Shaktis, one may destroy the army of enemies in a battle immediately.
If a person should meditate on Varahi as having dishevelled hair, as being seated on a throne in a jewelled pavilion, each of her hairs swarms of Shaktis holding clusters of red arrows, and each of which sits on hyenas, lions, tigers and monkeys and bears and Garudas and horses, each holding tridents as previously declared, the hostile host is destroyed by one's own ruler.
Parameshvari, if a sadhaka should worship the yellow effulgent one, the paralyser, with yellow flowers, using the previously declared tongue method, for a number of days, the array of the enemies in battle and whatever else one desires are paralysed instantly.
If one should worship the red Devi at midnight, using red flowers, one may enslave or kill all enemies, this is certain. If one should do puja for the number of days previously spoken of, using black flowers according to rule, at the time of one's enemy's death, in a visha nadi, a tortured yoga, or in a death or destruction yoga, then Yama lords it over the enemies.
If one should worship using dark green flowers, and various sorts of scents, it is said one becomes very wealthy, free of disease, true minded, a lord. Gruunam me rumdhini paathu mukam me paathu jadhinii!! Paathu me mohinii jihvaam sthambinii kamthamaadharaath! Skamdhav me pamchamii paathu bhujav mahishi vahanaa!! Simharudaa karav paathu kuchav krushnamrumgaachithaa!
Naabhim cha samkinii paathu prustadese thu chakrini!! Kadgam paathu cha kutyaam me medram paathu cha khedhinii! Gudham me krodhinii paathu jaghanam sthambinii thathaa!!Another description says her hair is adorned with a garland with red flowers.

After completing the chanting, the person should go to the temple and perform archana to Lord Varaha and Goddess Ambujavalli Lakshmi.
Further, the commentary not translated here shows that there is a number of elements which have to be taken account of when performing prayogas.
Pate thri sandhyam rakshaardham ghora sathru nivruthhidham! Sarva bhaktha janaasrithya sarva vidhvesha samhathihi! One should meditate on Devi in the form previously described during great wars, as being in the centre of the sun's orb, her body marked with red tridents.
