Drive 8 wedges into the Mother's body.
Take the Djed Pillar and Magatama Jewel in hand and recite the mantra.
The mantra has been inscribed upon the markers.
Drive the wedges from the heels.


You must call all of the mantras to summon Mother, the final boss of the game. The first two mantras are used to obtain Medicine of the Mind. The remaining eight Mantras are for each area in the ruins. They must be discovered on a Mantra Tablet at a location described in Temple of the Sun, then chanted somewhere in the corresponding backside field to drive a wedge through the back side. Once all eight are chanted, the final Ankh in the True Shrine of the Mother will be surrounded by the 4 seals you must break to activate it.

A mantra is selected through the mantra.exe menu and used by activating the Djed Pillar.

Finding the Four PhilosophersEdit

For the Mantra Tablets to even appear, you have to talk to all Four Philosophers with the Philosophers' Ocarina, found in the Temple of Moonlight (D-3). The Four Philosophers are in:

Field MantrasEdit

You must discover and use these mantras in order starting with Marduk. The next tablet containing a mantra will appear once you've driven in the wedge of the previous mantra. After defeating Viy, Temple of the Sun (C-3) provides clues for the location of these mantras and the order in which they must be chanted.

The location of each wedge in the frontside field corresponds to where its mantra must be chanted in the backside, based on the direction and distance from the 'compass' points on those levels; note that to fully understand the positions, you have to read page 19 of the manual, which explains how the levels should be interpreted -- effectively, view each level as a four-by-five square, and 'roll over' rooms as necessary to fit them onto it, then count the number of steps up, down, left or right from the compass to the boss room on the front side.  Repeating the same steps on the modified map of the back side (that is, wrapped around to fit into a to four-by-five grid) will show you where the wedge point is.

Be advised that if you are playing the PS Vita version of the game, many of the compasses have been moved, and accordingly, their wedge locations have been moved as well.
