Shiva is an amalgam of primordial awareness, energy and exuberance.He is the buoyancy to the force being applied, the external pressure. And guess what? This thrust, this coercion is being provided by the lord himself. He thus exists in the form of a question, the answer lying within him too . All this forebodings and premonitions beings holding these divine principles within, and even apparent delusion or confusion is merely these aspects in play. They are united till the end and from the beginning. The expressions, no matter what you perceive and confess, colloquy and parley,keep it inside or move them out, remains the same extract of pieces, abstract of something too concrete.
We move and navigate the landscape of palpable life which is both always reflective of this understanding and at the same time, always operating by laws of apparent contradiction of that simplicity. They are the two sides of the same coin,the ways the positives and the negatives ions hold ends of the same metal, the way night follows the day, light the darkness, bad phases the good phases. However, when seen fully, those contradictions only open up into an even greater joy of the ultimate understanding. The light conquers the darkness, but at the same time it was the darkness that made you realize the importance of light, the same way how those bad times made you realize the good ones.
Such is the divinity of the great Lord. He resembles them all, just need to look carefully.
What is tantra?
Tantra is the merger of two words with different meanings : “Tattva” and “Mantra”. “Tattva”(matter) means the science of cosmic principles. Matter occupies the spatial and temporal arrangement and confines within the particulars of the nature. This matter is in a way related to the universals but inter dependent of it. While “mantra” refers to the science of mystic sound and vibrations. Tantra, therefore is the application of cosmic sciences with a view to attain spiritual lordship. In another sense, tantra also means the scripture by which the light of knowledge is spread:
“Tanyate vistaryate jnanam anemna iti tantram“
There are essentially two schools of Indian scriptures – “Agama” and “Nigama” (learn them from the hanuman chalisa). Agamas are those which are revelations while Nigama are the traditions. Tantra is an Agama and hence it is called “Srutishakhavisesah”, which means it is a branch of the Vedas.
There are 18 “Agamas”, which are also referred to as Shiva tantras, and they are ritualistic in character. There are three distinct tantrik traditions – Dakshina, Vama and Madhyama. They represent the three “shaktis” or powers of Shiva and are characterised by the three “gunas” or qualities – “sattva”, “rajas” and “tamas”. The Dakshina tradition, characterised by the “sattva” branch of tantra is essentially for good purpose.
The Madhyama, characterised by “rajas” is of mixed nature, while the Vama, characterised by “tamas” is the most impure form of tantra.
Is tantra vidya evil?
Tantra meditation is immensely vigorous, dynamic and cogent and has wide range of applications.The fact that it can be utilised for evil, wrong doings and harassing someone is a truth and cannot be a fallacy. It is so persuasive and eloquent that it can also lead to death of someone, making them sick, or loosing their materialistic possessions, sometimes even peace of mind. But connecting it only “evil” and “negative” and “sinister” is only the half truth.
Tantra meditation has been useful for people in the past and is useful till today. It can ensure that you meet your soul mate. It can also make sure a couple deprived of a child get one even after long periods of marriage. Unfortunately “black magic” is the word awarded to tantra meditation in India. Why? Let’s find out.
Tantra meditation is basically done by the use of souls of dead people, spirits roaming around because of some unfulfilled choices in the material world. These souls are asked questions. These souls can travel back and forth in time to tell you about the gained information from the same.
Using this information the tantric helps his clients. If the information is a good one a good soul is used and if the information is an evil one an evil soul is used for the job. The tantric enslaves these souls and uses them for their own needs.
The tantric most of the time live a secluded life. They live in forests and also in places where the dead are burnt. They spend years in tantra meditation and attain great powers. We cannot say how many of the tantrics today are genuine. However, we can definitely say that the knowledge of tantra meditation is limited to few as it requires great devotion that is not very easy to find in today’s world. Many people have done research on the subject and many books have been written on the same.
Some tantrics will want alcohol from the clients in order to tell them the future. They are not normal people that we meet. Most of them don’t even have a family. They live a life of seclusion and socialise very little. Most of them die alone. The tantric say that as they can not only predict the future of a person they can also change it. This is exactly why the Gods are never pleased with tantra. Nature has a general plan for everyone and through the use of techniques like tantra meditation, we can change the course of this life. This is exactly why tantra has a negative effect on the life of the tantric when he/she indulges in such usage of the great knowledge.
In tantra meditation the things that are used are not the conventional type. They use bones and skulls of the dead. The ashes of the dead are an important part of tantra meditation. Well the belief in tantra is that body is something that will end one day. The only aspect of life that will always remain with us is the soul.
The ashes are the only remaining part of life after death as Hindus are burnt. The ashes are powerful and they can make the impossible possible. The tantra meditation is mostly done on no moon nights as the evil spirits are strongest on this day. The tantra meditation requires chanting of a lot of mantras. Bali that in Sanskrit means sacrifice is a very crucial part of Tantra meditation. Bali may be done of an animal. In most parts of the country this has been banned. However, in some rural areas this still continues. Goddess Kaali is worshiped in tantra meditation. Many tantrics even drink blood of animals to please the Goddess and get blessed.
The tantra meditation is done to help people attain their goals. However, when you do tantra meditation or you select a tantric then you should do a good background check. Tantra meditation is very strong and if the tantric wants they can also create a lot of trouble. Tantra meditation is indeed Indian black magic that has been practiced for generation. It is a body of knowledge a skill that required years to master.
We don’t know how many will learn the Tantra meditation now. Most of the tantric prefer not to get married as a result they don’t have a legacy to continue this knowledge, neither do they prefer to teach it outside their circle, which is hardly any, as they live secluded lives mostly. We just hope that people continue to learn the tantra meditation and the knowledge is not lost forever. After all tantra meditation is a very important part of our traditions.
