Misconceptions about tantra sadhana abound. It isn’t correct to see it as a dark yogic practice; in fact, it’s an absolute kriya or an applied mystical science to attain the unattainable.

THE WORD, TANTRA, which is made of tan (body) and tra (application), refers to meditative rites for mystical transformation of the consciousness to transform the entire self — both body and mind. It is a sacred…

Be in the Present.......

Withdraw your energy from the past. Don't waste your time in memories. What is gone is gone. Say goodbye to it and close the chapter.

What has not come yet has not come yet. Don't unnecessarily waste your time and energy in imagination, because no imagination is ever fulfilled. It is because of this that the proverb exists in every language: "Man proposes, and God disposes" because you imagine a certain thing in the future, and it is never… Continue

This world is over nite stay...soon or later we will find out your true home........

If you can become aware of your desires, if you can watch your desires, then a miracle happens, the greatest miracle of all.

The moment you become aware of your desires you can easily see that no desire can ever be fulfilled

The Secret............

There is only one secret which is not part of the mind, and that is witnessing, watching. Thoughts are passing, desires are moving, memories are coming and going like clouds in the sky and you are sitting silently simply watching, not doing anything. If you do anything immediately the mind starts functioning. What you do does not matter - doing is part of mind. A non-doing witnessing, just witnessing, as if a mirror goes on witnessing whatsoever…

A Play of Consciousness.....

A really mature person cannot be serious, there is nothing to be serious about. The whole of life is fun, it is a play, a play of consciousness. And that's what meditation reveals to you - that the whole of life is a beautiful play of energy.

The same energy is in the trees, in the stars, in the rivers, in the mountains, in you, in animals. It is the same energy dancing in different forms. We in the East have… Continue

There is something in the innermost core that drives everything in this cosmos. And that something is will. It forms the basis of cosmic karma. A theoretical exploration.

WILL IS SHI - VA, which made word. Would there have been a word without will, without the will to express and the will to invent means to communicate? I am no sage to elucidate will, but I dare so because will, the word, has mystical magnificence.…

You already are enlightened, just you have not looked in the right direction.......?????

Sitting silently……..truth

doing nothing

spring comes

and the grass grows by itself.

You don’t have to do anything. Enlightenment is not your doing. And it is not a gift. You already are enlightened, just you have not looked in the right direction.

The difference between the enlightened being and the unenlightened is not much; it is negligible. One has looked into himself, the other has not looked into himself.… Continue

It is surprising to know that in India existed a group called Sramans much before the arrival of the white race and the creation of the VEDAs...

They preached that no one can create or destroy anything

They preached that both soul and the matter are permanent, without begining,uncreated and undestructable..

They also preached that it is the nature of soul being impure sinse ANADI or beginingless and it is each soul's duty to purify and realise it's true…

Meat consumption is totally prohibited for those who yearn for a Yogic life

The Eight Limbs , The Core of Yoga

by William J.D. Doran

The practice of yoga is an art and science dedicated to creating union between body, mind and spirit.

In your silent moments when you are sitting, or traveling in a train or in a plane, close your eyes and watch your breath. Going in, you go in with it; coming out, you come outward. As you go in, there is a small fragment of a moment when the breath stops before it starts moving outward. And once it has moved outward, for a split second the breathing stops again. These two points are very significant, because as you become more and more aware, these… Continue

I know that you are consciousness itself, not the conscious being. Consciousness is not a quality attached to you, you are consciousness. You are totally free.

So proceed from anywhere. Either be more free or be more conscious, and the…

Practice of Meditation in Daily Life.

Every cell in the body has the capacity to hold infinity. While a worm also eats and sleeps and wakes and performs its daily activities, there is no point in living like that. We must tap the full potential that nature has bestowed on us, the potential to hold infinity in every cell of the body.…
