The Kalachakra Tantra and Mantra

Kalachakra Tantra

The Kalachakra tantra has been held sacred and preserved in both India and Tibet for over 2500 years. The Kalachakra tantra helps purify the body and mind. Kalachakra literally means, Time wheel or Time Circle. Some sections of the Kalachakra tantra have been lost over time, but the beginning parts of this tantra still remain. The proper name for the Kalachakra tantra is the Kalachakra Laghuntantra.

The Kalachakra tantra is thought to be the most advanced form of Vajrayana Buddhism, and it is most prominent in the Jonang tradition of Tibetan Buddhism. The circles of time are associated with the rotations of the planets and moon cycles, breath cycles, and even the cycles of our bodies.

There are both inner and outer realms to the Kalachakra tantra. This idea of an inner realm and an outer realm is common in both Buddhism and Hinduism. The outer realm is also known as the gross realm. The inner realm is also known as the subtle realm. This consists of what is apparent on the surface. The inner realm consists of the interior workings of things, such as the relationship of internal energies and the chakras. The inner and outer realm of the Kalachakra tantra can be thought of like the relationship of body and mind and how these two correspond to one another.

There are five chapters in the Kalachakra tantra. The first two chapters deal with the outer realm and the last three deal with the inner realm. The first chapter is also known as the ground kalachakra, and it relates to the physical world. The second chapter refers to the inner world. The third chapter concerns the preparation for the meditation practices. The fourth chapter is about the meditation itself, and the fifth chapter describes the enlightenment available from the practices.

The Kalachakra tantra is most commonly taught to monks and other serious Buddhist practitioners after a period of initiation. This initiation period prepares the practitioner to practice the Kalachakra tantra is their quest for Buddhahood.

The Dalai Lamas are particularly concerned with the Kalachakra practice, including the current Dalai Lama. The 14th Dalai Lama's kalachkra initiations are given to tens of thousands of people at a time.

There is an often misunderstood difference between a tantra and a mantra. A tantra is a larger text that gives detailed guidelines for spiritual practice. On the other hand, a mantra is a combination of syllables which, when chanted, provide a line between the practitioner and the divine to whom they are chanting. Different mantras can call on different deities for various purposes.

OM AH HUM HOH HAM KSHAH MA LA VA RA YA HUM PHET

The Kalachakra mantra consists of the syllables shown above. Om ah hum hoh are the first four syllables in this mantra, and they are the vajra syllables of the body, speech, mind, and wisdom, in that order. Meditation on the first four syllables alone can lead to purification of the mind and body in preparation for enlightenment.

In the condensed form of the mantra it is often shortened to (Om ham ksha ma la va ra ya) or (Ham ksha ma la va ra ya). These letters are often seen written on top of each other as in the kalachakra mantra symbol. These seven symbols, along with the moon, the sun, and a flame make up the ten-fold powerful symbol, which is one of the most well-known Buddhist symbols. This symbol is commonly written or engraved on Tibetan jewelry, like this mantra pendant, offered on http://www.omtibetanjewelry.com.

Give Yourself A Yoga Facial!

Give Yourself A Yoga Facial!

Yoga Facial

Your face is a hardworking part of your body. There are 16 muscles found in your face, and those muscles can benefit from Yoga techniques. Think about your face and the beating it takes. It is hit by sun, snow, sleet, wind, and rain. It is rubbed, has make-up applied, scratched, scraped and grit and grime are attacking it constantly.

Not only are there 16 muscles, but also a dozen bones, arteries, blood vessels and veins that allows your face to do what it does. These parts of your face help you see, laugh, cry, chew, laugh, cry, kiss, sneeze, chew and much more. Your face absorbs much of your stress and tension.

Unless you let those muscles relax, they will get hard and you will have a strained look. Tense muscles also can keep the proper amount of blood flowing to your face with the nutrients it needs by constricting the arteries. Facial tension can flow down your neck and your shoulders. Just a few simple Yoga exercises can help release the tension making you look and feel more relaxed. Seven Yoga practices will help your face. Let's look at them.

1. Eye socket massage is for releasing tension from around the eyes. It relaxes the eyes and surrounding facial features. This exercise needs to be repeated 3-5 times.

This one is easy to do and will give your eyes a break. Place both the index and middle fingers of your hands on the sides of your nose just below the bridge. Rub your fingers up the bridge, across the eyebrows. You will feel a notch in your eye socket; rub that notch for a moment. Do it gently, and then follow the line of your socket and back to your original starting place beside your nose.

2. Improve circulation in your cheeks by grabbing bits of flesh and squeezing them.

3. Another good exercise to soothe your optic nerve and the muscles around your eyes is easy to do. Sit in a relaxed position; focus on breathing, in and out of your nose; cool air in and warm air out. Rub your palms together briskly and then cup them over your eye sockets. Repeat this several times for maximum benefit.

4. Here is a great one for relieving tension in your forehead and jaws, which could lead to headaches. Use the middle and index finger of both hands and place them in the middle of your forehead. Gently rub your forehead making small circles with your fingers. Continue to massage gently across your brow to your temple, where we hold tension and give that area a gentle massage. Move down from your temples to the hinge of your jaws. This is another place where we hold stress and tension. Continue with small circle movements along your jaw line and across your cheeks, up your nose and ending at your starting point. This works especially well for those of us who clench their jaws when under stress.

There are several other simple ways to loosen tension in your face, neck, and shoulders. These are just four of the simple ways to relax your face using Yoga techniques.

What if you do not have both the time and means to pay? Does this mean that you can't do yoga, even if you want to do it?

The Internet is maybe your solution to time and money restraints. For those who can't afford to go to the gym or don't have the time, due to busy work schedules or family obligations, yoga online is the perfect alternative.

It is a fact that one of the benefits of yoga is relieving stress in our body and well all need that relief. Especially those who are so busy at work and with family, who have hectic schedules.
