Tantra Shuns Nothing, Judges Nothing

Tantra Shuns Nothing, Judges Nothing

Although it is an integral part of the Vedic scriptures, ancient tantra is not a religion. This is precisely because tantra asks us to dive consciously and unreservedly into the very temptations that religions ask us to shun.

As any good tantra teacher will tell you, tantra does not ask us to shun anything the heart wants. Rather, it states that temptations should leave us over time. This happens once we realize that they have no greater use than momentary satiation. Once the body, the mind and the heart have had enough, they will stop responding to temptation.

What Tantra does require is a state of happiness – a state we achieve by overcoming the restrictions we have imposed on ourselves by accepting them in our lives, and by walking down those very paths to overthrow them. Tantra picks you up like a baby and makes a man or a woman out of you.

Why would you want your desires to leave you? Because they are of no real value in your life, and hinder your progress to higher levels of consciousness.

Tantra shuns and judges nothing, and nothing is taboo or black or white. There is only good, and more good. Some things have greater goodness than others, but there is nothing that Tantra considers bad. It asks nothing from its followers except that they desire true happiness and accept and receive its precepts without pre-judgment.

When your consciousness unfolds at the hands of a tantra master, you are like a newborn who opens his eyes for the first time and takes in all the shapes, colours and objects around him. He does not judge; he merely observes, and is happy and excited by it all.

This is why many children have spontaneous spiritual experiences which gradually reduce in frequency and intensity as they grow older and conform to the mechanics of contemporary society. There is no conflict between the conscious and the subconscious in a child’s mind. He does what he wants to and does it with a supreme lack of guilt, inhibition or hesitation. This is the very essence of sacred tantra.

Look into the eyes of a child and see the innocence, the wonder and the happiness in them. He is happy in every moment. His mind and being are ensconced within that moment itself. His soul does not judge, just accepts. He does not believe in bartering like adults do – rather, he gives and receives just for the pleasure of giving and receiving. He gives when he wants to and he is equally happy to receive.

This kind of free happiness, when experienced in the act of making love, is called tantra sex. Most of us go through the motions of life without actually living it, much as we scratch a boil simply because it is itching. A tantra master can teach you to live life to the hilt, immersed in its moments, whether good or not-so-good, loving everything and everybody around you and judging nothing.

The precepts of ancient tantra state that it is only when we do not project any negativity that negativity leaves us. Under a qualified tantra teacher, you can learn how to be master of your life - to shape it into what you want it to be. We have forgotten the child within us and become a part of a knee-jerk society. We filter out things that we perceive as irrelevant to our scheme of things, thereby ignoring the bigger picture.

When you learn tantra, you will begin to see everything with the boundless pleasure of a new-born baby. Tantra believes that the core energy that rules the world – the source of every creation – is feminine energy. You can learn to harness that energy and use it to make vast changes in your own as well as others’ lives. Tantra is not a quick-fix solution for nirvana – you need to prepare for a journey that will last your entire lifetime -and several more to come.

Bhairav Tantra And The Tantric Wisdom Sutras
Jan 21st, 2011 by Aldouspi

Bhairav Tantra And The Tantric Wisdom Sutras

Bhairav Tantra encompasses several facets of our life. It prescribes a systematic conduct for structuring our learning of Tantra techniques, and on achieving reunion with Supreme Consciousness. In instructing you on Bhairav Tantra, your Tantra teacher aims to help you realize your true Self by focusing your attention to any physical or non-physical object. You will then meditate on this object to the exclusion of everything else.

The art of Tantra is not just about a bunch of postures or meditative techniques; ancient Tantra is, in fact, a way of sadhana or self-realization. Bhairav Tantra addresses the eight steps to awakening or Nirvana, as authoritatively declared by Rishi Patanjali. The eight astangas or subdivisions of awakening our inner consciousness through Tantra practices are yamas, niyamas, asanas, pranayamas, pratyahara, dharana, dhyana, and samadhi.

The Tantric yamas teach us conscientious and interpersonal behavior. While instructing you in these, your Tantra teacher will direct you to avoid untruthfulness, thieving and avarice. Ahimsa (or non-violence and kindness towards all living beings) is the first step towards self-realization. Communicating what is right and moderation in all the Tantra sadhanas is revered and sublime.

The Tantric niyamas teach us what inner values we should have towards ourselves: flexibility, cleanliness, peacefulness, devotedness and austerity. They teach us to always abide by discipline and accept the Supreme Intelligence that exists beyond ourselves, and to accept our limitations in relation to this Supreme Intelligence (or God).

In the Tantric asanas, the Tantra master has us focus on Tantra posture practice session, aligning the body and integrating tantric breath to attain higher consciousness of mind, body and soul. The mind needs to be conscious and at ease, without stress, and must be able to observe the responses of the body and breath to varied Tantra positions. These minimise the dietary and climatic influences on the body.

Pranayama in Tantra is highly advanced in its restraint and control of the tantric breath, dynamically stimulating and balancing our mind and body.

Pratyahara through Tantra is the relaxation of our sensory faculties so that nothing can disturb or unfocus the mind.

Tantra Dharana is the power to channel the mind towards a preferred objective and center in on that exclusively.

Tantra Dhyana (or meditation) is the power to evolve concentrated interactions on what we attempt to realize in Tantra.

Finally, Tantric Samadhi constitutes the supreme state of Self-realization in Tantra.

Tantra Instruction – The Forgotten Treasure Of Vigyan Bhairav Tantra
Dec 23rd, 2010 by Aldouspi

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.
