WHAT IS THE PREPARATION FOR THE VEDIC/TANTRIC TRADITION OF BHUTA SHUDDHI ?TRUE TANTRA-13
THE VEDIC/TANTRIC TRADITION OF BHUTA SHUDDHI;-
1-Bhuta shuddhi is the very dynamic and systematic practice which transforms the elements, constituting body and mind, for the transmission of the atma shakti. Bhuta means 'basic element'. It is also known as tattwa. Shuddhi means 'purification'.
2-According to tantra, body ,and mind are comprised of five primal elements known as earth (prithvi), water (apas), fire (agni), air (vayu) and ether (akasha). These tattwas are the manifestation of the primordial 'Shakti', and it is due to them that this entire universe exists.
3-The first step towards this is purification of the basic physical, mental, psychic and pranic structure.In the 'Srimad Devi Bhagavatam' (Ch. 8), it says that bhuta shuddhi purifies the body elements by 'respiratory attraction and replacement'.
4-By concentrating on the yantra and bija mantra of each tattwa at its specific location in the body, the internal vital capacity and awareness becomes dynamic and active. At that time, sensorial awareness drops as you merge into the realm of vibration and form within.But before achieving this depth,some things are very important to know in general.
HOW TO BEGIN WITH EARTH ELEMENT;-
Our first element is the earth --- in the busy world of today where we all live in concrete jungles, it is important to keep yourself in touch with the ground and in a literal sense! The earth is what bore us, so we need to give some back to it. How to do it? 1-The way to do this is simple --- try and go for a walk everyday to a place where you can feel the grass under you --- not the concrete road.
2-Spend some time with nature --- indulge in gardening or cultivate a small patch in your house. WATER ELEMENT;- This is one of the most important since our body is 70 % made of water --- we need to treat water right before it enters your system -- only then we can respect it. How to do it? 1-Make sure the water you are having is pure and free from bacteria --- treat it in a purifier before you consume it. Apart from that, get into the habit of saving water. 2-Copper container..You can also keep some water in a copper container overnight and then have it after you get up. Not only is this healthy, it will also purify your stomach.keep the water in a place where it is not touched by other smells and substances – there is sufficient space around it . Hold the vessel in your hands with a sense of gratitude and reverence because it is life-making material, and then consume it, you will see it will do wonders within your system.
FIRE ELEMENT;- What kind of fire burns inside you --- is it greed, hatred, anger, resentment, lust, love, or compassion? The more you let these fires burn in your system, the bitter your personality will become --- it is important to keep these fires under control.Apart from the mental fire of all negative things you need to douse (pour a liquid over), here's another thing you can do..viz, 1-If you wish to, you can light a fire with an organic substance like straw or firewood, without any oil, and stand facing the fire with open hands and open eyes for three minutes. Then stand with your back to it, exposing your spine for three minutes. This process cleanses your aura and brings about a new sense of resurgence in the system. It rekindles and reconnects the fire within with the fire outside. This is the basis of all fire-based rituals of the East. 2-If having a fire is not practical for you, at least light a lamp with vegetable oil or ghee . Light a diya everyday in your house --- this will cleanse all the negative vibrations of your house.First, sit facing the lamp, then turn around and sit so that the fire element within you gets rekindled..this will help you in feeling calmer, kinder and also make you positive. NOTE;- Do tratak by gazing on diya...select dark place ..it will be helpful to you. AIR ELEMENT;- Even though air is a small composition is the five elements, it is an extremely important element -- it is important that the air you breathe is clean and free of bacteria. How to do it? 1-The way to do it is to get as much of clean air as possible --- you can do this by practising deep breathing in the morning or visiting a lake so that you can get some fresh air. Plant some trees as well.For those who live in cities, it may not always be in your hands what kind of air you breathe, so it is good that at least for a few minutes every day, you take a walk in the park, along the lake or the river, whatever is available to you. 2- If you have children, it is important that at least once a month, you take them out far enough from the city, where nature is in a reasonably pure state, and they can climb a small hill, walk in a forest, or swim in a river, to be in touch with nature and do something where the breath is dynamic.
Get more air..The idea behind this is to get more air in your lungs so that your body gets cleansed from inside --- the more air you get it, the more free your mind will feel, once and always. 3-If you are in pure air, it is important to bring the breath to a dynamic state with some activity. You do not have to do too vigorous an activity – just enough to breathe slightly deeper than normal for a period of time. Especially for growing children, this is very important because it greatly enhances the body’s integrity and strength.
4-Yogic practice ..In case you can't physically get out of the house everyday, what you can also do is to practice some simple breathing exercises/yogic practice called nadi shuddhi at home to cleanse the breath... once in a day. It will detoxify your system. AKASH ELEMENT;-;- Akash has a certain intelligence. The nature, quality, and power of your life is essentially determined by how much access you have to the akashic intelligence. There is only a limited amount of water, air, earth, and fire, but the akashic dimension is limitless. If your access to it expands, both your perception and intelligence will grow. This element is endless --- pretty much like the sky, the options for cleansing your akash element too are very abundant. Anything you do positive can better your akash element. How to do it? 1-One thing to do is to get up early in the morning and look the sun in the eye --- while saying thanks to you. On the other hand, when the sun is at its peak, bow down to it and express gratitude. 2-Within 40 minutes after sunset, look up at the sky and once again bow down to the etheric space around us that is holding everything in place. Apart this, try and consume foods that make you feel close to nature. 3-If you get akash to co-operate with your life energies, life will happen in magical ways. An intelligence that you have never thought possible will become yours. IMPORTANCE OF BALANCING;- It is said that if you allow all the five elements of your life to function in a pleasing and smooth way, then you can easily control all your negative energies and become a calmer and smoother person.
