Tantra Instruction - The Forgotten Treasure Of Vigyan Bhairav Tantra

Today, the sacred tantra scripture called Vigyan Bhairav Tantra has been reduced to just one of many meditation manuals. While several amateur adaptations are available online, the original version has never appeared on public domains. With its true essence thus obscured, most will never know the Vigyan Bhairav Tantra actually stood for – and what it does not stand for.

True, Vigyan bhairav tantra is an ancient treatise outlining 112 fundamental tantra meditation techniques. However, it is not to be mistaken for a meditation bible, for it explains tantra techniques that do not only train just our minds. Vigyan Bhairav Tantra is a 10,000-year-old tantra scripture meant to catalyze the expansion of consciousness, mind, body and soul.

Tantra is a very practical philosophy, and with ardent practice of this ancient art you  can develop a personal spiritual connection with the flow of your life. You can then reach and out tap into the Divinity that exists within you. Vigyan Bhairav Tantra is a holistic approach to life that honors and respects all aspects of your being, including sexuality, love and spirituality.

An ardent student of tantra would do well do avoid the many so-called 'commentaries' on this fabulous treatise, which has its deeper meanings inbuilt within the original text in Sanskrit.

The Vigyan Bhairav Tantra is not an intellectual or philosophical work that can be absorbed in a retreat or workshop. A qualified tantra teacher can instruct you in its essential teachings to aid you in your  tantra lessons, but the complete work required at least a decade and a half to master.

This scripture – one of the most revered in ancient tantra - explains the exact breath techniques Gautama Buddha used to achieve spiritual enlightenment. The Buddha's Vipassana meditation method is well-known for being 'one of His techniques', but it is not generally known that it is based firmly on the Vigyan Bhairav Tantra.

Most religious and spiritual schools of the world have borrowed heavily from the various methods and techniques it offers without acknowledging it as their source. For example, Gurdjieff formulated his famous techniques on the lines prescribed by this ancient tantra scripture and introduced them to the West under his own name.

The student of tantra must understand that this ancient treatise is not only about the systematization of breath. Rather, it teaches us to  use breath as a technique to bring about pure consciousness. This consciousness is essential if we are to begin exploring the sexual aspects of tantra, which cannot be divorced  from deep spirituality.

Via the techniques taught by Vigyan Bhairav Tantra, we learn to harness energy that is otherwise wastefully expelled through mundane sexual intercourse. It changes the way we perceive sex. We learn to see it as much more than  just a peaking of erotic energy that must be released and then done away with.

Can We Attain Charmananda – The Eternal Orgasm?

Ancient Tantra Concept - Charmananda - The Eternal Orgasm
By Acharya Subhojit Dasgupta

Tantra teaches us that desire is all-pervasive - that it exists in us, at all times. Whether we indulge in it or suppress it constantly, few of us understand it.

While Gautama Buddha said that desire is suffering., a tantra master will extrapolate on this thought thus - to desire is to suffer, but only when you do not know how to desire.

A tantra teacher believes in the goodness of desire and affirms its importance. In today's world, where the social, economical and political milieu demands that we keep up with the Joneses or get morally battered by them, it is important to pursue our desires. However, we must do so intelligently, resourcefully and esoterically. An accomplished tantra master can show the right way to pursue your desires.

When you learn tantra, you learn to understand your desires, rather than deny or suppress them. You must allow your desires to reach the very peak of their urgency, before satiating them.

Tantra propounds that desire, in itself, is not a sin. There is no such thing as shameful desire - however, the intention behind that desire may be sinful and shameful for mortal beings.

Tantra teaches us that everyone and everything exists in this world for a reason. To find our purpose is our life's primary objective - the next is to fulfill it. Living, without understanding our purpose, is futile.

Desires are integral to our being. To deny them is to deny a large part of our essential being.

Life is meant to be a celebration - and enjoyment. This state of blissful celebration is what Tantra calls 'Charmananda' (the eternal orgasm). Yes, this sounds extravagant and perhaps even impossible, but tantra brings it within reach.

However, you can only attain Charmananada, if you practice tantra diligently under the expert guidance of an accomplished tantra teacher.

Why do so few attain this heavenly state that ancient tantra can transport us to? The reason is sad, yet simple - most of those who begin to learn tantra fall by the wayside, because they cannot reconcile their esoteric practices in their daily lives.

However, relentless and expertly guided pursuit of tantra precepts and practices can help you incorporate your new found knowledge into mainstream life, thereby transforming your life into a continuous explosion of Charmananda.

Desire is not evil. Everything in life is worth acquiring, provided that we understand the desired object's rightful place in our life. Understanding the right way to cater to and fulfill our desires is vital.

Ironically, though we have all the technological conveniences of modern life, we have lost the essence of life itself. Our ancestors had a firm grasp on this essence. When you practice tantra, it will help you rediscover your rightful love for life!

Understanding the Meaning of the Sleeping Buddha
Jun 13th, 2010 by Aldouspi

Reclining Buddha, Wat Suthat, Bangkok, Thailand

Just about every decorator understands if a client wants a space that is calm and tranquil, there is just one direction to go with the interior decoration, and that's East. Think water features, bonzai, elegant flowers, beautiful screens and unusual sculptures. You can create a hint of the orient in many ways, but among the most straightforward would be to add a statue of the Buddha. There are more than one hundred known positions and three distinct orientations for these statues, so there will be one which would be perfect for almost any space, even when it is an unusual shape or size.

Side tables along with desks almost all seem to benefit from a sitting Buddha, gardens and balconies may be perfect for the standing Buddha, however quite a few spaces need an object significantly broader than high. There the perfect decorate element is a reclining Buddha.

Many Buddha statues have 32 features said to have been physical characteristics from the first Gautama Buddha who was born in approximately 563 BC. They are also referred to as the 'Thirty Two Signs of a Great Man', and encompass:

•    flat feet

•    a pointed head

•    beautiful gold skin

•    long fingers all the same length

•    long toes all the same length

•    a robe draped over one shoulder

•    long ear lobes

The Buddha wasn't in favor of representations of his own body, and so the real question is, why are there so many Buddha statues?

It seems this may be another matter which can be blamed on  the Greeks, and on one Greek in particular, Alexander the Great. When Alexander  conquered Afghanistan and Northern India, the leader kept lots of soldiers and artists in the regions, therefore the art of that region was heavily influenced by classical sculpture, and by Greek ideas of Gods and mortals. Alexander was widley known for enjoying the imitation of his own face, understanding the worth of portraits and sculpture as products of propaganda.

This may be why Alexandrian India, with a partially Greek populace as well as ties to Greek tradition, was the earliest area to create Buddha statues. These became hugely popular and the idea spread with Buddhism itself, on the other hand as Islam restricted the manifestation of the human form and considered such statues as idolatry,  countless ancient and wonderful statues of the Buddha in that region have been destroyed.

There are a few established poses for these statues that refer to distinct concepts or occasions in the life of the Buddha.

But the most interesting is the reclining pose of the Buddha. Presently there are not one but two variations. The first portrays the Buddha, resting with his head in his hand. This is the sleeping Buddha, but the alternative pose, where Buddha's feet are resting together, signifies the day the Buddha went into Nirvana.

Aged 80, the Buddha took a moment to rest and informed his disciples he would soon enter parinirvana, the condition which occurs whenever the body of somebody who has achieved complete awakening or enlightenment ultimately passes away. He ate his last meal and then became violently ill. He asked his followers for any concerns they had and when there weren't any he offered all of them his last instructions. "All composite things pass away. Strive for your own liberation with diligence." Tradition tells that when his body was laid between the sala trees, the plants bloomed, despite the fact that it was not the time of year.

This is the occurrence symbolized by the reclining Buddha statue.  In Thailand the most common pose shows the Buddha with legs crossed and with his left hand in his lap while the right points to the ground, palm inward in a pose called 'Calling the Earth to Witness' and relates to the precise of the Buddha's enlightenment.

Whichever shape your space, right now there is a Buddha statue which will certainly match, delivering a sensation of peace and harmony to your world and surroundings.
