THE INTERPRETATION OF THE 49 th TECHNIQUE OF MEDITATION ;- 1-LORD SHIVA REPLIES;-
14 FACTS;- (THE SECOND TECHNIQUE OF "URDHWAGAMAN'') 1-LORD SHIVA REPLIES;- ''When in such embrace your senses are shaken as leaves, enter this shaking''.Here Lord Shiva pointing out the union of 'IDA PINGLA' to his better half or his ida 'Mata Parvati'.There is a circuit of 'IDA- PINGLA & SUSHUMNA NADIS 'or a circuit of 'SHIV-SHAKTI & NIRAKAR' in our subtle body .When the flow of ida -pingla completes a circle ;then their flow help to reach sushumna,the advance journey...
2-Within the spine, if you know its physical construction, you will know there are two holes on either side of the spine which are like conduit pipes for all the nerves to pass. This is the Ida and the Pingala, the left and the right channels.
3-The Ida and Pingala represent the basic duality in the existence. It is this duality which we traditionally personify as Shiva and Shakti. Or you can simply call it masculine and feminine, or it can be the logical and the intuitive aspect of you. It is based on this that life is created. Without these two dualities, life wouldn’t exist as it does right now. In the beginning, everything is primordial, there is no duality. But once creation happens, there is duality.
4-Certain qualities in nature have been identified as masculine. Certain other qualities have been identified as feminine. You may be a man, but if your Ida is more pronounced, the feminine may be dominant in you. You may be a woman, but if your Pingala is more pronounced, the masculine may be dominant in you.Bringing a balance between the Ida and Pingala will make you effective in the world, it will make you handle life aspects well. 5-According to Sutra ,when in such embrace, in such deep communion with the better half, your senses are shaken as leaves, enter this shaking. We have even become afraid: because only the mind can remain in control not heart.When it spreads all over your body, you cannot control it. 6-Shaking is just wonderful because when you shake in your meeting the energy starts flowing all over the body, the energy vibrates all over the body. Every cell of the body is involved then. Every cell becomes alive because every cell is a compound ida-pingla cell. 7-When you were born, two compound ida-pingla cells met and your being was created, your body was created, those two compound ida-pingla cells are everywhere in your body. When you shake all over your body, it is not only a meeting of you with your better half. Within your body also, each cell is meeting with the opposite cell. This shaking shows it. 8-This second sutra says, “WHEN IN SUCH EMBRACE YOUR SENSES ARE SHAKEN AS LEAVES…” For example ..A great wind is blowing and a tree is shaking. Even the roots are shaking, every leaf is shaking. Just be like a tree.Only then can you both meet, and then that meeting is not mental. It is a meeting of your bio-energies' IDA PINGLA'. 9-Enter this shaking, and while shaking don’t remain aloof. Don’t be a spectator, because mind is the spectator. Don’t stand aloof .. Be the shaking, become the shaking. Forget everything and become the shaking. It is not that your body is shaking: it is YOU, your whole being. You become the shaking itself. Then there are not two bodies, two minds. In the beginning, there are two shaking energies, and in the end just a circle .. not two. 10-What will happen in this circle? One, you will be part of an existential force ..not a societal mind, but an existential force.In that shaking you will be part of the whole cosmos. That moment is of great creation. You are dissolved as solid bodies. You have become liquid ... flowing into each other. The mind is lost, the division is lost. You have a oneness. 11-This is ADVAITA, this is non-duality. And if you cannot feel this non-duality, then all the philosophies of non-duality are useless. They are just words. Once you know this non-dual existential moment, then only can you understand the Upanishads. Then only you can understand the mystics — what they are talking about when they talk of a Cosmic oneness, a wholeness. 12-Then you are not separate from the world, not alien to it. Then the existence becomes your home. And with that feeling that “Now I am at home in the existence,” all worries are lost. Then there is no anguish, no struggle, no conflict. This is what Lao Tzu calls ''Tao'', what Adi Shankara calls ''ADVAITA''. You can choose your own word for it, but through a deep love embrace it is easy to feel it. But be alive, shaking, and become the shaking itself.
13-Most people live and die in Ida and Pingala; Sushumna, the central space, remains dormant. But Sushumna is the most significant aspect of human physiology. Only when energies enter into Sushumna, life really begins.Fundamentally, Sushumna is attribute-less, it has no quality of its own. It is like empty space. If there is empty space, you can create anything you want.
14-Once energies enter into Sushumna, we say you attain to Vairagya. “Raga,” means color. “Vairag,” means no color, you have become transparent. If you have become transparent, if what is behind you is red, you turn red too. If what is behind you is blue, you turn blue too. You are unprejudiced. Wherever you are, you become a part of that, but nothing sticks to you. Only if you are like this, only if you are in a state of Vairag, then you will dare to explore all dimensions of life when you live here & this SUTRA helps you to receive that...
THE INTERPRETATION OF THE 50 th TECHNIQUE OF MEDITATION ;- 1-LORD SHIVA REPLIES;-
21 FACTS;- (THE THIRD TECHNIQUE OF "URDHWAGAMAN'') 1-LORD SHIVA REPLIES;-
“EVEN REMEMBERING UNION, THE TRANSFORMATION”
2-Once you know this, even the partner is not needed. You can simply remember the act and enter into it. But first you must have the feeling.o't forget that these sutras are for the sadhaks of Pravriti Marg. If you know the feeling, you can enter into the act without the partner. This is a little difficult, but it happens. And unless it happens, you go on being dependent, a dependency is created.
3-For so many reasons it happens. If you have had the feeling, if you have known the moment when you were not there but only a vibrating energy had become one and there was a circle with the partner, in that moment there was no partner. In that moment only you are, and for the partner you are not: only he or she is. That oneness is centered within you; the partner is no more there.
4-During this technique, it is good if you have your eyes closed. Then only an inner feeling of a circle, only an inner feeling of oneness, is there. Then just remember it. Close your eyes; lie down as if you are with your partner. Just remember and start feeling it. Your body will begin to shake and vibrate. Allow it ..Forget completely that the other is not there. Move as if the other is present. Only in the beginning is it “as if.” Once you know, then it is not “as if,” then the other is there.
5-Move as if you are actually with your partner.Soon the circle will be there, and this circle is miraculous. Soon you will feel that the circle is created, but now this circle is not created with a man and woman. If you are man, then the whole universe has become woman; if you are woman, then the whole universe has become man. Now you are in a deep communion with the existence itself, and the door, the other, is no more there.
6-The other is simply a door. While making love to your better half, you are really making love to existence itself. Your better half is just a door. The other is just a door for the whole, but you are in such a hurry you never feel it. If you remain in communion, in deep embrace for hours together, you will forget the other and the other will just become an extension of the whole. Once this technique is known you can use it alone, and when you can use it alone it gives you a new freedom ..freedom from the other.
7-It really happens that the whole existence becomes the other — your better half, and then this technique can be used continuously, and one can remain in constant communion with the existence. And then you can do it in other dimensions also. Walking in the morning, you can do it. Then you are in communion with the air, with the rising sun and the stars and the trees. Staring at the stars in the night, you can do it. Looking at the moon, you can do it. You can be in the real union with the whole universe once you know how it happens.
8-But it is good to start with human beings because they are nearest to you — the nearest part of the universe. But they are dispensable. You can take a jump and forget the door completely — “EVEN REMEMBERING UNION, THE TRANSFORMATION” — and you WILL be transformed, you will become new.
9-Tantra uses the real union as a vehicle. It is energy; it can be used as a vehicle. It can transform you, and it can give you transcendental states. But as we are using meetings, it looks difficult for us — because we are using it in a very wrong way, and the wrong way is not natural. Even animals are better than us: they are using it in a natural way. Our ways are perverted. Constant hammering on the human mind that kama is sin has created a deep barrier within you. You never allow yourself a total let-go.
10-Something is always standing aloof condemning, even for the new generation. They may say they are not burdened, obsessed, that kama is not a taboo for them, but you cannot unburden your unconscious so easily. It has been built over centuries and centuries; the whole human past is there. So while you may not be condemning it as sin consciously, the unconscious is there constantly condemning it. You are never totally in it. Something is always left out. That left-out part creates the split.
11-Tantra says move in it totally. Just forget yourself, your civilization, your religion, your culture, your ideology. Forget everything. Just move in it totally; do not leave anything out. Become absolutely non-thinking. Only then does the awareness happen that you have become one with someone. And this feeling of oneness can then be detached from the partner and it can be used with the whole universe.
12-You can be in an union act with a tree, with the moon, with anything. Once, you know how to create this circle, it can be created with anything ...even without anything.You can create this circle within yourself
because man is both man and woman, and woman is both woman and man. You are both because you were created by two,Shiv & Shakti ;or the ida -pingla.You were created by man and woman both, so half of you remains the other. You can forget everything completely, and the circle can be created within you.
13-Once the circle is created within you ..your inner man is meeting your inner woman, the inner woman is meeting the inner man ..you are in an embrace within yourself. And only when this circle is created is real celibacy attained. Otherwise all celibacies are just perversions, and then they create their own problems. When this circle is created inside, you are freed.
14-This is what tantra says: “ kama is the deepest bondage, yet it can be used as a vehicle for the highest freedom.” Tantra says poison can be used as medicine, but wisdom is needed. So do not condemn anything. Rather, use it. And do not be against anything. Find out ways how it can be used and transformed. Tantra is a deep, total acceptance of life. It is the only approach of its kind. All over the world, in all the centuries that have gone by, tantra is unique. It says don’t throw anything and don’t be against anything and don’t create any conflict, because with any conflict you will be destructive with yourself.
15-All the religions are against kama , afraid of it, because it is such a great energy. Once you are in it you are no more, and then the current will take you anywhere. That is why the fear. So create a barrier in which you and the current become two, and do not allow this vital energy to have any possession over you: be the master of it.
16-Only tantra says that this mastery is going to be false, diseased, pathological, because you cannot really be divided with this current. You are it .. So all divisions will be false, arbitrary, and basically, no division is possible because you are the current — a part and parcel of it, just a wave in it.
17-You can become frozen and you can separate yourself from the current, but that frozenness will be deadness. And humanity has become dead. No one is really alive; you are just dead weights floating in the
stream. Melt ..Tantra says try to melt. Do not become like icebergs: melt and become one with the river. Becoming one with the river, feeling one with the river, merging in the river, be aware and there will be transformation. There is a transformation.
18-Transformation is not through conflict; it is through awareness. These three techniques are very, very scientific, but then kama becomes something other than what you know. Then it is not a temporary relief; then it is not throwing energy out. Then there is no end to it. It becomes a meditative circle.Don't forget you are 'ARDHNARISHWAR'. This is basically trying to manifest that the masculine and the feminine are equally divided within yourself. And when Lord Shiva included ma Parvati , he became ecstatic. What is being said is that if the inner masculine and feminine meet, you are in a perpetual state of ecstasy.
19-If you try to do it on the outside, it never lasts, and all the troubles that come with that are an ongoing drama.This is a symbolism to show that if you evolve in your ultimate context, you will be half a man and half a woman – not a neuter – a full-fledged man and a full-fledged woman.
That is when you are a full-blown human being. You are not skewed development, you are not just masculine or feminine, you have allowed both these things to grow.
20-Masculine and feminine does not mean male and female. The “feminine” and “masculine” are certain qualities. Only when these two qualities happen in balance within, can a human being live a life of
fulfillment.Whether a human being is born, or an ant is born, or a cosmos is born, it is happening the same way. In terms of human understanding, it is referred to as male or masculine.
21-Essentially, it is not two people longing to meet, it is two dimensions of life longing to meet – outside as well as inside. If you achieve it inside, the outside will happen one hundred percent by choice. If you do not achieve it inside, the outside will be a terrible compulsion. This is the way of life. This is the reality which is being expressed in a beautiful dialectal form – Shiva included her as a part of himself and became half-woman, half-man.
