VISHANTI
(This profile is a temporary placeholder for a future Vishanti profile. For night now, it is just an accumulation of spells invoking the Vishanti, which start after the comments section.
Further, most of the stuff that is highlighted is something translated from Italian via an on-line translator (Babelfish) - if you can check the original issues and confirm/correct any of these, please do. I'll look into that further when I work on an actual Vishanti profile, perhaps sometime before the end of 2014?)

Spells invoking the Vishanti

This is a list of spells and invocations involving Hoggoth and The Vishanti. The invocations which produced an effect could means that the subject invoked was "behind the scenes".
Some invocations are taken by Catherine Yronwode's web site: The Lesser Book of the Vishanti, the greater part were added by me. Nonetheless the list is not complete and some spells are still in Italian version. If not specified otherwise, the caster is Doctor Strange.--Spidermay
    It is also missing the most recent invocations, as this list was submitted many moons ago--Snood

Strange Tales I#115: Banish: Vapors of Valtorr

I summon the powers of the Vishanti!
By the spell of the Dread Dormammu,
in the name of the All-Seeing Agamotto --
all thy powers I summon ---
begone, Forces of Darkness!!

[Note: Cast by the Ancient One. A flash of light, and the Vapors vanished.]

Strange Tales I#169 (fb): Banish: Flames of the Faltine

Begone, forces of darkness!
By the power of the all-knowing Vishanti--
by the vision of the all-seeing Vishanti,
I command you... begone!
[Ancient One]

Strange Tales I#117/2: Conjure: Enchanted Light

By the power of the Vishanti --
in the name of the All-Seeing Ancient One --
I summon all the forces of good --
and focus their blinding power upon you,
through the facets of this ring!

Strange Tales I#118/2: Strange neutralized the mental barrier of an alien.

By the grey specter of the Vishanti,
I summon all the mystic forces of the shadow worlds...
I call on the hosts of darkness...
strike...strike at the command of your master!

Strange Tales I#119/2

Exclamation: By the beard of the Vishanti!

Enchanted Incantation:

Hoggoth, protect me!
To my aid, Dormammu and the mighty Vishanti!

Strange Tales I#120/2:

Banish Eerie Imprisoning Mists

In the name of the Dread Dormammu!!
By the Hosts of the Hoary Hoggoth!
I call upon the Mystic Realm!
Let the fury of the ageless Vishanti show itself --
Dr. Strange commands!
By the twelve moons of Munnopor --
my will must be done!!

[after the mists dissolved]

It is done!
In the name of the venerated Ancient One, I dismiss the powers that be!
They have served me well!

Banish: a Being to its Home Dimension

Let the vapors of the Vishanti drive you from the sight of man!
Let the mystic Hosts of Hoggoth prevent you from ever returning again!

Strange Tales I#123: Conjure: Hand

In the name of the Dread Dormammu --
by the power of the deathless Vishanti --
I call upon the Hosts of Hoggoth!
heed the words of thy mortal servant!

[Note: Strange conjured a diamond-hard, metallic giant hand, under his mental control. The Hand came from a shadowy dimension, possible home of Hoggoth's Hosts. It was so strong that it was capable of seizing Mjolnir from the very hand of Thor. It was probably the first appearance of the Hand of Hoggoth, also called the Fist of Hoggoth.]

Strange Tales I#125:

Exclamation: ...By the powers of the eternal Vishanti...

Conjure: Blinding light of the Vishanti.

Strange Tales I#126/Doctor Strange II#3 (fb): Conjure: Light of the Vishanti. The beam from the amulet pierced through the pocket which engulfed Strange, and then it hit the minion of Dormammu. Once the minion was bathed in the light, Strange could imprison him for as long as he desired.

Strange Tales I#127: The Ancient One strengthened Doctor Strange:

May the light of the Vishanti shine upon Dr. Strange...
and may the omnipotent Oshtur grant him wisdom and strength.

Strange Tales I#127: Stan Lee's greetings in the last balloon: May you and your loved ones bathe in the light of the Vishanti!

Strange Tales I#129:

Control: Mind

May the Hosts of the Vishanti help me!
...
Put down you wand! Put down your wand!

[Note: with the only force of thought and the help of the Hosts of the Vishanti (!) Strange forced Tiboro to drop his wand.]

Exclamation: Help me, oh hosts of the Vishanti, to weaken this menace!
Claim by Stan Lee in the last balloon: And now, as truly as the Vishanti exist in the cosmos we shall surely meet again!

In the name of the eternal Vishanti, I command you, let your limbs become like stone --
Let the power of movement be lost to you -- Until I am gone!

I order you... disperse!

Exclamation: The Vishanti be thanked!
Banish phantoms:

By the omnipotent Oshtur!

from whence you have come.

Strange Tales I#132: Exclamation while in astral form: The Vishanti be praised!

by the enchanted realm of the Vishanti --

Exclamation: Once again the eternal Vishanti have smiled upon us... praise to their name!

Strange Tales I#157:

In the name of the eternal Vishanti--

Exclamation: May the eternal Vishanti protect me!

[Even so, the prison created by the Living Tribunal, made of Rings of Raggador, continued to shrink around Strange. Strange had also to use the power donated to him by the Ancient One to shatter the mystic bonds.]

Rise and surge, ye roiling waters-- rage and swirl and rise again!

may the forces you did use 'gainst the demon-cult of Sligguth--
all prevent the dread Hobgoblin from drawing to me near--
by formin 'round me now--a mighty Conjurer's Sphere!

[Note: An oil black globe surrounded Strange, protecting him from Goblin-blasts and grenades.
A secondary effect put on the Sphere was to absorb all magical force in a given area.
A third effect was that time passed more quickly in the immediate vicinity of the Sphere.]

Doctor Strange Sorcerer Supreme#15:

May the Vishanti's power, like a mystic wave
which gives them any shape they crave--
upon yon vampire's spell now place their ban--
revert him from his bat-like form--to man!

Doctor Strange Sorcerer Supreme#18:

Sacred Vishanti--you three who are one--
though your Book be inviolate, to be sundered by none-
now bathe me in scorn--cascade me with curses--
but deliver to me--the Vampiric Verses!

[Note: A page from the Book of Vishanti was teleported from New York to Strange's location.]

Eternal Vishanti--I call you en toto--
great Oshtur, pale Hoggoth, many faced Agamotto--
though no else might destroy it--ye gods, I implore--
let this page of your spellbook be on Earth--nevermore!

[Note: the page was destroyed.]

May the three Vishanti and crimson Cyttorak now grant me power o'er these Dark Hordes--
that they all be hurled back!

Doctor Strange Sorcerer Supreme#38:

Exclamation: Thank the Vishanti... [Rintrah]
Exclamation: ...the Vishanti be our witness!

Doctor Strange Sorcerer Supreme#39: Exclamation: Thank the Vishanti...

Doctor Strange Sorcerer Supreme#40: Strange invoked the Vishanti, Oshtur and Hoggoth but he was already under the D'Spayre's influence and he did not put his heart in the spell. So, the spell was too weak to have effect.

Doctor Strange Sorcerer Supreme#45:

Exclamation: By the Vishanti! [Strange was surprised at seeing Death.]

Let the hoary hand of Hoggoth now scatter bones like dust--
let the power of mighty Oshtur do that which Oshtur must!
Let the gaze of Agamotto wither him who takes no breath--
let the wrath of all be pointed-- the way to dusky death!
[Strange attacked Death, but he only destroyed one of its images.]

Doctor Strange Sorcerer Supreme#47:

Exclamation: Thank Hoggoth!
Exclamation: ...thank the Vishanti!
Conjure: power [Note: Strange called every entity he knew to contrast Necromancer's power.]

Doctor Strange Sorcerer Supreme#48:

Font of wisdom, source of light--
heed now your servant's plight!
Mine eyes dim, my limbs grow weak--
grant now the sanctuary that I seek!
Aid me now, O great Vishanti--
against the loath-- some spawn of Ygoth.
By the names, I call thee--
Aggamotto, Ostur and Hoggoth!

[Note: a great explosion burned the cyclopeans. The Vishanti summoned Strange before them.]

Doctor Strange Sorcerer Supreme#49: Emancipation Incantation:

Satannish Watoomb and Ragadorr
Ikonn, the Seraphim and Cyttorak
Agamotto, Oshtur and Muniporr
Hoggoth, the Faltine, Valtorr and Denak
Those whom I've named plus others I've omitted
Those who threatened my cherished liberty
Hark to this irrevocable decree:
Such an enslavement will not be permitted
Your claims on my person I now reject
All demands of servitude I must deny
For your wisdom and might I've the utmost respect
But the price of its use is far too high
Better the path I walk be mine alone
Hear now these words: let my fate be my own!

Doctor Strange Sorcerer Supreme#74: Exclamation: Or by the Power of the Undying Vishanti... [Salome']

Doctor Strange Sorcerer Supreme#75:

Harken now immortal Vishanti, our Avatar is at the core!
Nihility beckons your former servant, and Salome' would open the Door!

Doctor Strange & Doom Triumph and Torment

Attend me now Vishanti...let your servant share your might!
Hoary Hoggoth, grant me power--Agamotto 'loose your light!
Blessed Oshtur, graceful lady, in your hallowed hands I place
all my mortal form encircles... let it change in your embrace!
