Shiva’s divinity and the word “Tantra”

(The following content is after a lot of analysis and covered from various sources, books and articles written by people associated with cosmic events, studies and learning from the parallel world. Reader’s discretion is advised and are asked to interpret it by personal experiences and intellect)

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 vidya


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.


“An idle brain is the devil’s workshop”

This quote must have been heard by most at some point of time. The basic idea the phrase conveys is an empty mind is an idle mind who is the committer of most of the sins, if not deadly, but sure destructive in nature – A peace Destructor. So does this quote hold any water? Does an idle mind really become a “devil’s workshop”? Let’s find out.

We all have feared a “devil” since we were a child. My mother used to feed me convincing me that a “devil” would come and take me away if I didn’t eat and sleep. I used to be afraid and I ate. Clearly, this fear of devil was always frightening, and imagining it in our brain- the worst thing we can think of.

So does the quote seem justified?The fact that a quote like this exists for this insidious condition makes us believe that it actually exists. We tend to get bored,then our brain creates a wholly narrative piece of loomy scenarios for us to brood over and agonize. Suddenly a random jab, a random fight in college, a phone call which never returned takes on a sinister meaning. The worst – a devil from our dreams arrives in front of you with a weapon in his hand, burning your heart flame by blame, making you realize, you were never wrong in that fight- YOU need a revenge for it. This projection of the devil is projected, unfortunately, onto a real person, who has no idea, why you are pissed off at him.

Do people really behave because they have been idle, ironically filled with erroneous and wicked thoughts incorporated within an idle mind.I am sure most of the criminals that have committed crimes were not criminals by birth- rather they weren’t criminals by mind too. Circumstances. They made him react that way. A poor man who has been asked for bribe by a government official, tends to go numb. Numb means he goes into a phase where he tends to get idle, not talking to anyone, and feeling like concentrating all his aggression to pour his hatred for the system on one man. How numb? He certainly doesn’t know how he’s gonna pay! This is where the devil acts. He comes up to your ears and whispers- you need to take your revenge. This hatred is further fuelled by some incident stuck in your unconscious mind, where you saw the same incident, but happening to a different person. But instead of filing a PIL, a complaint, he feels like making an impact on his own.


Teenagers for example are more prone to externalities, finding the unethical things more attractive than what is morally or ethically correct. For example, the recent Nirbhaya Case was committed by a 16 year old juvenile. Infact he was the said to be the most heinous of them all. But was it wholly his fault? It was, no doubt in that. But we need to see how this fragile mind evolved such that he went to this extent. He didn’t have any job, was unemployed and as the popular saying goes khaali dimaag shitaan ka ghar…the same thing happened.Feminists must realise here that I am not justifying the rape, am giving a reason why he did this.

Take for another example,a guy loved a girl. They were friends since childhood. He proposed her-she rejected. The guy found out later she got committed to the guy’s best friend. Instead of taking it as a matter of happiness for that girl, he was agonized. He felt rejected. He couldn’t take her rejection. He used to be lonely, until one fine day, he threw acid on that girl. Consequence? One got jailed, other got her life ruined. Wasn’t all this because his ideas seemed to encounter a blockage? He could have used this dejection in a constructive way, by trying to achieve the best in life. But he used his loneliness to do some ethically and morally wrong.

Taking some more examples,the news nowadays are flooded about how a girl(educated) was being radicalized by women member of ISIS. Did we ever think about what must have happened? The girl used to be lonely at home, and surfing on the internet in her idle time must have shifted his attention to something so destructive.


Seeing the other side of the story,there was a farmer, who was really poor. He had 150 hectares of land, half of it was dry, arid and couldn’t bear a cash crop. It surely required water to be drained. He had to fetch water from a far of well. He did farming in the better half and earned money. He never thought of the other half land. One idea struck in his mind– instead of half of the day when he sits idle, doing nothing, why not use it in a constructive way. He decided to dig a well. It took him a month to dig it, until a layer of water touched his feet. He was happy. He used the water in the other half land and grew cash crops there.

He became rich. He employed other farmers in his land. He helped them both financially and also helped them during the course of work. What was he doing? He wasn’t keeping himself idle. Once when he was idle, and now he was utilising this time helping others. Can we take out positives from the ways being followed?



So, what basically needs to done? How to NOT remain idle, or rather how to use this idle time in a constructive manner?

Constantly reading, writing and creating : When I feel like things aren’t actually going my way, and m occupied by devil thoughts- I go for a novel(a peace spreading novel of course!). A book forces you to synthesize all the images, sounds and emotional complexities that tends you to focus on the story rather than devil thoughts.The more you create, the more you know of yourself. The more you know of yourself, the more you get to live by your own rules and only allow those you want in. A blockage is created against the contagion that is other people’s way of life tending you to believe what is the best way to live.

Treating our work like a play : Work needs to be played in a healthy way and not by getting involved in boredom. We need to enjoy it like a game. We bring in ideas, we innovate, we think good, a think better- and ultimately, come up with the best.You might as well use something you’re engaged in most of your waking hours to your advantage.

Spot crappy thoughts when they arise. Orthodox and irrelevant self-talk and unproductive thoughts are an addiction. And like most addictions, there are triggers that start the cascade. If you’re the type of person who is highly introspective and constantly looking for ways to master your thoughts, you probably know by now certain events, people or words trigger negativity.


An ideal mind tends to a devil’s playground only after how we perceive things. For example : the idle mind when was utilised by the farmer in a constructive manner, he turned rich. The same mind when was used by a rejected lover in a destructive manner, turned him violent against the girl he liked. So what’s the basic idea? Didn’t Newton discover gravity while he was sitting idle? Didn’t Edison invent a bulb in his idle time and an idle mind? Of Course he did. As we say, everything is in our mind. If we focus the good traits, forget the bad phases, we can to do wonders with this idle brain.
