Saundarya Lahari – The Waves of Bliss – Introduction by Master AD

                    || SriVidya Poornabhishiktaa – Kramachaarini Ma Shakti Devpriya Devi ji ||

Shivoham!

If Sri Vidya is the highest Sadhana of advait bhrahman in personified form called – Sri MahaTripuraSundari.. RajaRaajeshwari, Lalitamba, Parvati then Saundarya Lahari is the book of highest order on this tantric way of worshiping and igniting the Shakti in one’s own body and mind. There are many systems of worshipping MahaShakti across Tantric traditions. Majorly three geographical regions on the map of India or Bharatvarsh can be pointed to when it comes to three distinct approaches in the worship of Supreme Mother. The regions are Kolkata that includes Kamakhya tradition (Eastern Part),  Kerala (Southern Part) and Kashmir (Northern Part).

Instead of understanding the differences and different nuances of these distinct approaches of Devi worship it is best for us to understand that they are following the same SriChakra Sadhana everywhere. When it comes to Sri Vidya Sadhana, Adi Sankara’s work in the form of Saundarya Lahari is pivotal to every approach, every aamnaaya (आम्नाय ) and every gotra or division on the basis of rituals i.e. Kaula, Mishr or Samaya because it basically enshrines complete Sri Chakra in it.  It also has many powerful Mantras of SriVidya tradition including the most revered and sought after mantra called ‘Shodashi’. For your curiosity the very first verse of this scripture has the highest of mantras in Sri Vidya. But all these things are embedded in Saundarya Lahari in coded form to save it from misuse and abuse.

I am sure each one of you shall benefit from these talks of Acharya ji. Rest assured you will be able to pick up only as much as you are capable of and there Master can’t help. Your devotion in your teacher and your attitude is responsible for your ascension. Corrupt vision of a disciple corrupts his/her whole journey.. and the most susceptible you are in your dwait Buddhi for if you don’t see Shiva-Shakti in your Teachers’ Vigraha ascension shall continue to evade you life after life.

“श्वेतंश्वेत विलेप माल्यवसनं …. वामेन रक्तोत्पलं….  शंभुस्वरूपं परम्…..  ध्याये शिरस्थं गुरुम्”

“I invoke my beloved Guru, who himself is Shambhu-swaroopa, gaura varna fair in color and wearing whites (representing divinity and piousness) with his Shakti sitting to his left radiant like a red-lotus. I see Shiva-Shakti seated on my forehead eternally.”

May you all evolve and grow. May you all be rooted in your true nature. May you all experience culminate in the oneness of Shiva with Shiva within.

Blessings

Who is MahaShakti

To understand MahaShakti, firstly we need to understand three important concepts: Shakt(शक्त),  Shakti(शक्ति ) and Shakya(शक्य ). Here Shakt means one that is capable, shakti means the capability, and Shakya means the Karma or Kriya in which one is capable depending on his Shakti. For example we can understand that Fire is the Shakt, its Shakti is its power to burn, or we can say heat energy and the act of burning is its Shakya. So we can say Shakt is the reason, Shakti is its capability and Shakya is its act or work.

Now, the above principle is applicable to everything in this world. Earth, Water, Air, Space, Body, Karmaindriyas (organ of actions) and Gyanendriyas (organs of cognition) and  even the other immovable objects; everything has some or the other capability. Clearly we can understand that no object in this world is devoid of Shakti. If food has the capability (शक्ति ) of satisfying hunger then water has the capability of quenching the thirst. In the same way different fruits, vegetables, medicinal herbs, plants, trees, insects, animals, humans, devtas, asuras all have various potentials. There is nothing that has no role to play, everything is engaged in its Karma (कर्म  -action) according to its Shakti.

If fire is having the capability to burn grass then grass is also having the capability to burn in itself. So for a single kriya or karma, work or action, different causes come together bringing their Shaktis together. And  every Shakt or cause is also having capability of not only doing one action or work but many. Every entity  has different types of accomplishment with each of its causes. Where different causes come together to achieve one result, there every cause is also having various uses and activities. In inanimate objects also we can understand this, like in a simple process of pot making, the potter is doing something, the rod is doing its job, the pottery wheel is doing its own and even the thread has its work to do. In the same way in farming there are different people involved, doing various jobs depending on their abilities and capabilities. So if we see closely there is nothing in this universe that is devoid of Shakti.

The Fire is one – it also burns, protects in cold climate, helps in food preparation and also gives light. This is not all, it is the same fire that triggers the process of photosynthesis in the plants and also ripens the fruits and vegetables, strengthens our bones and so on. So we can now understand the vastness of the Shakti tattva. And if we start thinking about the greatness and expansiveness of it, our mind can get tired but there will be no end.But the question here is – Why do all objects, animate and inanimate have Shakti? Why there is nothing that is free from Shakti?

We get only one answer for this, without the presence of an all pervading Shakti it is not possible for every small and big objects to have Shakti. Obviously, there is an unending source of Shakti like a great sea which is all pervading like the space.  It is the only one that is reflected and filling everything with energy. It is known by different names like in Samkhaya Shastra it is known as original source, Vedanti use the word Brahman for it and is also known as Paramatma, Maya, Prakruti, Vishnu-Shakti and many more. It is the same shakti that manifests in prana and through its interaction with Panch-Mahabhutas creates the chakras. It is this MahaShakti in the form of kundalini that takes a Yogi towards Moksha through Samadhi. It is in the form of Durga that opens the gates of all 7 chakras. It is Trinity of Mahakali, Mahalaxmi and MahaSaraswati where from emerge the three Gunas- Tam-Raj and Sat. She is the one which accompanies every avatara in the form of Dash-Mahavidya worshipping and connecting with them a SriVidya practitioner reaches to the source – the one Oceanic Mahashakti, the Mother of All, the illuminator of paramShiva. What can be said about the vast, all pervading MahaShakti that is the Hari, Har and Brahma….

I bow down to that paramaaShakti..

– Ma Shakti Devpriya

Stotras – The Ways to Connect with the Divine Virtues of Infinity!

Shivoham!

The Shiva is spontaneous force, innocent and all-powerful. Though He sits silently as witness at the core of everything but you should not forget that it is ‘His’ Shakti that creates, sustains and annihilates the infinite cosmic celebrations around us. When Shiva is realized within He is realized through his Shaktis the ‘gyaan’ and ‘ichchaa’. The power of knowing and Power of willing. When He is experienced in the Urja chakra He is seen with Paarvati. Paarvati represents the Shakti of Gross (tangible and material – Energy and condensed energy – matter) world.. Parvati in our being is originating from Muladhara (Prithvi) and residing at ‘her very own place’  the Swa-Adhishthaan’ as kula kundalini.

When it comes to physical manifestation that is in the Aham-Idam frame, the Shakti becomes manifest in the form of Bhairavi, Shiva follows and incarnates as Rudra or Bhairava. Shiva is seldom visible to aspirant in the form of Rudra or Bhairava because Shiva is that primal cause of everything whose experience can happen only to His Shakti. Therefore almost all capable Sadhakas shall be able to experience Bhairavi or Devi in their sadhana experiences not Shiva.

But it does not mean Shiva is never experienced in Aham-Idam. Technically it is true that Shiva can not be experienced in this domain but in Shiva Sutras you have heard it from Acharya ji that Udhyam is equivalent to Bhairava. This Bhairava is created out of Udhyam – Udhyam means incessant, cyclic and programmed flow of Shakti impregnated with TOTAL consummate awareness of the ‘sadhaka’ through either of three Upayas. And according to the chosen Upaya the experience is cultivated in the consciousness – It is through the play of Shakti of Sadhaka in Anavaopaya that Shiva manifests in Himself in the form of Bhairava. A Sadhaka should always remember that Shiva and Shakti are never separate from each other and secondly Shiva is EVER-FREE (swatantrya shakti) to break all set rule (only if we thought there are any). Thus Rudra or Bhairava is experienced. Even in Shambhavopaya a personalized experience of Bhairava is very much possible for some sadhakas.

And Rudra is that aspect of Shiva which is ever filled with Anant Karunaa (infinite compassion) so much so that his eyes are always moist, filled with water looking at us.  He is all benevolent, kind hearted, innocent.. so much so that He does not care for who is the sadhaka in front of Him. Shiva in the form of Rudra does not differentiate between devas and demons.. Manushyas (humans) or Gandharvas (celestial beings).. He blesses and gives boon to everyone. He does not see if he is giving boon to a Devata or Rakshasa. Rightly thus he is called Bhole-Baba..

To experience the presence of Rudra in your consciousness you should live in Shiva consciousness with all your (His) Shakti focused on to your respective Upayas (mostly anavopaya sadhana). Of which chanting or Nam-Smaran is a wonderful way to collect one’s awareness and energy to the point of desired convergence (abheepsit).  In this mode of convergence Stotras are divine means to create right kind of bhava (emotional framework in your psycho-energetical ecosystem) in your being. And it is said when Bhava is right.. Deva is not far. And remember experience of Deva is said to be Amogh (unfailing – means it always blesses you and takes away your hurdles) therefore it would be apt to present you with this Rudrashtakam in the voice of Acharya ji as a means of strengthening Bhava in your sadhana.

So sing, dance, love Him and let the tears of surrender take away all your sins.. May Shiva bless you all.  Please note, I am giving the transcript of that this Rudrashtakam for the ease of pronunciation in chanting.

Saundarya Lahiri – The Tantric Way of invoking Divine Beauty in Life!

Shivoham!

Gururbrahma Gururvishun Gururdevo Maheshwara

Guruh: saakshaat Para-Brahm Tasmayi Sri Gurave Namah:

I request the Gurumandala to accept  my humble salutations… Namaste!

I have been taking up Shiva Sutras for US based Tattva Shakti Vigyaan practitioners & all of you here in India felt deprived of ongoing learning with Gurumandala.  So, that’s one of the reasons for taking up this new series for you. Also we see, some of you have truly grown with your Sadhana and we feel that you can be given more to experiment with and deepen your experiences before anointing you with Higher Deeksha.

The last but the most ‘mattering’ reason is that – in all these years of our public interaction Ma Shakti Devpriya ji and I have received innumerable requests from people to speak on some tantric text that not only helps one in raising one’s consciousness but also saves them from the hardships of day to day life. It took some time before we really accepted the fact that there are some issues of your day to day life which occupy your mind and body hindering your sadhana. But as it sank in…  the choice of book for this purpose was unanimous. And in fact there was no other book in the lineage of tantric masters which could prove better than this – The Saundraya Lahiri… by greatest of all great acharyas Shri Adi Shankaracharya. In fact it will be apt if I say that this book has teachings, upayas and practices for everyone.. whether one has been initiated in Tantra or not however more can definitely be revealed to those who are in ‘discipleship’.

I know that… The task of presenting the practical learnings hidden in this greatest ever tantric book ‘saundarya lahiri’ is not going to be easy especially for the uninitiated but I Sa-Shaktikayeiya surrender our souls in the grace field of Gurus and almighty divine Mother to bless us with ability to retrieve all the teachings our Gurus have given us from time to time and thus enabling to sing Mother’s glory beyond our personal capacities..

From my Gurus I have learnt that she is capable of giving boons and unbound grace without having to show “Abhaya” and “Vara” mudras.. Even devatas draw miraculous powers through darshan of her divinely beautiful lotus feet.

Twadnyah Paanibhyaamabhayavarado daivat ganah:

Twamekaanaivaasi prkatitavaraabheetyabhinayaa|

Bhayaat Traatum Daatum Phalamapi cha Vaanchhaa samadhikam 

sharanyelokaanaam tavahi charananaiva Nipunau ||

With this prayer lets begin!

Saundarya Lahiri has three beautiful subtler dimensions of your being – Mana or Mind. It includes its finer aspect of intellect also. Then comes Bhakti or Transcendence of Mind. Finally there are methods to arouse your Prana or individualized portion of Shakti or Kundalini to be able to reach a Total transcendental state. So…

There is beauty of literary excellence and it is in shabda vinyasa. It is so beautiful to see how Shankara, like a grammarian of highest order is concealing the transcendental sounds… what we call beejas…. in tantric system within these ordinary sounding words. And that too with so much ease! This aspect of Sundarya Lahiri appeals and astonishes our mind. And only an astonished mind is capable of perceiving something of beyond.. “Vismayo Yog Bhoomika”

|| Shiva Sutra – Shambhavopaya – Sutra number -12||

Then.. There is devotional and musical content in this tantric marvel that appeals to our heart and emotions. An astonished mind is ready for cultivation of Bhava.. As you chant and sing each verse you start immersing in the oceanic beauty of Devi. Devi’s mandala starts revealing its true nature creating a divine emotion in you. The appreciation and assimilation of that bhava leads to bhakti.  Bhakti leads to one-pointedness of mana and dissolution of Ahamkara or Ego. Paving path for kundalini to unwind and reach its destination – the crown or sahasrara.

But the most important  aspect of these verses is their hidden spiritual meanings pointing to various tantric means of Shiva-Shakti-Realization. And yet another beauty is that the same verses and methods when used in material realm are capable of taking away all your pain, misery and suffering.

Our Gurudev told us that in Tantra there are 7 crore mantric ways to raise sadhaka’s capacities.  These mantras are pertaining to various gods and mother-goddesses, yaksha, kinnar, tattvas, yoginis.. responsible for ongoing organic and karmic cycle. Out of those around a thousand mantras are associated with the Highest Ruler Goddess Raj-Rajeshwari or Lalitaambaa or Parvati and her direct transmutations collectively known as Dash mahavidya or Shri-Vidya.

He says that Pertaining to Raja-Rajeshwari there are 1000 great ways methods.. 1000 great mantras that are mentioned in Lalita Sahasranama. Another 100 more potent compound mantras are given out here… in Saundarya Lahiri. There are 10 mantras for dash-mahavidyas and 1 master key mantra that is the Guru-Paduka mantra.

In krama system the first ever mantra that is given upon initiation is known as Shri Gurupaduka mantra. It is with this mantra and of course Guru’s permission and blessings a dedicated disciple can use 1100 odd ways of creating favaourable ripples and for piercing through the cosmic web of Shakti.

Yantra- Visual tools in Tantra

It should be born in mind that each and every verse of Saundrya Lahiri is not one but what we can call ‘the mantra complex’ in itself. Every verse has a Yantra associated with that mantra. You can connect with these verses and Yantras to to create what you like and desire….. and get what you want. Apart from spiritually helping a sincere sadhaka every verse has a practical application in the material world as well…. Each one of you who are initiated in Tattva Shakti Vigyaan can take benefit from. All of you who have been connecting with Tattva Shakti Vigyaan Sadhana on regular basis.. and seeking protection of Gurumandala each day..  definitely get to know more. It is very extensive as you get deeper into it. Each Yantra is different.

Each Yantra has a beeja sound.. or what you call beej mantra.. each yantra requires a different ink… different base.. and also the method of creation and carving it. Many things like auspicious day and time for carving, the nyasa during japa, homam ingredients.. all these things shall be shared with those who have gotten diteeya koti sadhana . Well.. a simple reminder – you shall not be using these Yantras for others. If your loved ones who are not initiated … not received deeksha.. ask them to request a personal consultation session Ma Shakti Devpriya ji to receive a suitable Mandala for them.

Also the good news is that.. even if someone is not initiated in Tantric System and doesn’t have a Teacher even then he or she can take great benefits from the wisdom of Saundarya Lahiri. For those who are not initiated the use of beeja is not permitted instead they shall chant the whole verse. The yantras can be told.. in fact they have already been told… those shapes of Yantras are already available in different books but….. my suggestion would be to refrain from using those yantras ritualistically until you are guided by your Guru to do so. Simply because there are so many nuances and also risks involved if you are not protected by your Gurus through the way of deeksha.

If you are single pointedly and with full faith make yourself engaged in the Upayas then there is nothing impossible. Virtually every areas of your day to day life which you can imagine can be ironed-out and the adversities warded off through invocation of Ma Parvati through Saundarya Lahiri prayers. Very briefly some applications (but not limited to) are put below to just give a glimpse of the power of Ma TripuraSundari. She is capable of giving you everything..

  • Attaining desired objects of luxury
  • Wish fulfillment
  • Protection from danger
  • Solving fertility problem
  • Return of loved ones from foreign lands
  • Purification of body
  • Improvement of poetic & creative acumen
  • Attractive personality
  • Winning over difficult people
  • Protection from unnatural or untimely death
  • Success in business
  • Immunity from wasting diseases
  • Healing of wounds
  • Avoidance of bad dreams
  • Protection from infections
  • Dream prophecy
  • Counteracting adverse planetary influence
  • Attaining fame & popularity
  • Doing away with insomnia
  • Proficiency in music & vocal ability
  • Solving motherhood issues
  • Power to remove evil & negative spirits
  • Gaining immense beauty
  • Release from prison
  • Attracting a person in your life
  • Gaining knowledge about future
  • Making your husband return to you
  • Gaining control over wild animals
  • Pratyaksh Darshanam of Devi

That I is what I shall be covering in this series. I bow down to the ‘Jagadeshwari’s lotus feet’ again and again for her blessings.

Ah! beautiful it is to be immersed in Shakti Sadhana.

Shivoham!

5-Day Swara Yoga Retreat : by Ma Shakti

THE 5-DAY SWARA YOGA RETREAT

 5-DAY   RESIDENTIAL  PROGRAMME    FOR       SWARA-YOGA  LEARNERS  BY  MA  SHAKTI   The   Ultimate  Secrets   of    Swara – Vigyaan

Swara-Yoga is an ultimate practical science in the Tantric lineages for achieving greater success & siddhis in material life. What more can be said about it. It is said in the scriptures that “Swaras are the essence of ‘atman or consciousness’ itself. The one who possesses the knowledge of Swaras is capable of creating success, attain great health, predict future events and even know about one’s destiny beyond the Golden Gate of Death.

 

With Swara Yoga Everyday is a ‘Present’ –

The Swar Vigyaan is a complete science of success working on the principles of aligning individual actions with the cosmic cycles of ‘Energy Principle’. Human Life on planet Earth is not an isolated event. The whole cosmic arrangement supports life on it. The sun, the moon and the 5-Great Elements regulate the activities on mental, psychical and spiritual levels. A seasoned Swar-Yoga practitioner is capable of identifying the most productive energy cycles and knows how to use them for benefit of others and self. The true SwarYogi is one who can turn any moment to an auspicious moment, any endeavour to a success,  mend relationships and even warn about the probable fallouts. With this unparallel intuitive knowledge which comes through persistent practice the Swara practitioner turns everyday to ‘the rewarding gift’ of cosmos.

Few things everyone should understand that Swara-Yoga is a science of breath and has nothing to do with the religion. Not a single mantra or deity salutation is to be done during the practices. The practices can be learnt by anyone who is willing to experiment with one’s body and breath. Most people feel this science to be an open source due to availability of books on the subject but that is not true. The knowledge presented in the every Tantra book has always been encrypted and Swara-Vigyaan is no exception.  All ancient systems were presented to able and dedicated disciples in Guru-Disciple system (the great Guru-Shishya parampara). With all the experience at my command and great humility I say that  without my Guru I would have not succeeded in it. There are various secret ‘Keys’ that are revealed to students only by able teachers upon seeing their capabilities. Without understanding those keys the true practical  knowledge of Swara Vigyaan can never be gained. Also you evolve in your practices as you continue your discipline with SwayYog. Therefore what you learn in these 5-days you must be ready to apply it because Swara Yoga is a lifelong learning. ” says Ma Shakti Devpriya.

Contents of 5-Day Swara-Yoga Retreat

Swar Yoga 5-day retreat is a residential program by Ma Shakti that takes the participants on a magical adventure with their body-breath rhythms in the lap of mother nature. You shall begin here from ground zero to reach the zenith – in just 5 days!

This retreat is unique in a sense as it trains the learner in all aspects of Swara Vigyaan. It begins with covering all the topics of Swara Yoga basic workshop. You are given many secret tips that will be useful in your daily life and those advanced ‘keys’ which are capable of elevating you to the stature of an accomplished ‘Swara Yogi’.

The cursors to the contents of programme are as below –

Swara Yoga Retreat – Day 1

One the first morning of your retreat the day starts with mild Yoga practices. There are two sessions of classroom teachings scheduled during the day. The first session happens just after breakfast and the second session is taken later in the afternoon. The evenings will be an opportunity for you to experience and immerse your being in the unconditional love of maiden nature. Unforgettable!

Swara Yoga Retreat – Day 2

The day shall begin with learning Yogasanas and Neti practices. The first class-room session on Swar Vigyaan with Ma Shakti will be happening after the breakfast.

Your second day shall reveal many secrets about Swar Vigyaan practices over the two classroom sessions. The second classroom session will be conducted after lunch and karma-yoga session. As a participant in the retreat you shall be assigned some service work that provides an opportunity for karmic cleansing. The day shall end in star gazing for 1 hour.

Swara Yoga Retreat – Day 3

A day full of experiential learning. Swara Yoga is more practice oriented than any other stream. When you are trying to recognize the 5-Tattvas in your being it becomes really important for you to understand what is the best suited method for your personality type. You should be able to recognize rhythm and beauty of Tattvic currents and that doesn’t come without opening  to them.

This day shall deliver all the good experiences of morning and night light every other day but the experiences with Tattva Dharana will be extremely profound. This process once you know and experience becomes your guide for choosing the best way to connect and recognize the Tattvic energy in your being.

 Swara Yoga Retreat – Day  4

Learning Swara-Yoga is one thing but what matters the most is its continuous practice and application. Many participants think this science to be a subject of intellect and memory but contrary to that Swar Vigyaan is a practice work. The classrooms and even practical sessions are there just to introduce you to the techniques, make you recognize different patterns, train you in identifying tattvas and many more things but real fun is in its application.

There’s hardly any activity of the day which is not connected with the swaras. Right from the day you get up to the time you go to the bed your success and failures are governed by how much you were able to pay attention to swaras and what measures did you take to orient/plan/execute your activities according to the best suited patterns.

Swara Vigyaan helps you in planning your day, estimate the outcome of an effort, predict the success of an endeavour, improve the quality of your interactions with others, help you resolve your conflicts effortlessly, help you decide your projects, improve your intuitive muscle, give you powers to communicate with others just using your mind, deepens your meditations, accelerate your spiritual growth and award you with the highest – Liberation from cycle of birth and death if you choose that to be. All the above and even much more is there to accomplish and master but remember that comes with applying Swara-Principles in life diligently and consistently. Correctly it has been stated ‘Practice makes the man perfect.”

Day four of your stay will be more practice and experience oriented. You will learn various mudras and take up practices pertaining to Vayu and Akasha Tattva as well. The day will be populated with variety of activities to keep you in high spirits and best of your moods.

 Swara Yoga Retreat – Day 5

The retreat’s last day is refreshingly loaded with wisdom and path forward. Acharya Agyaatadarshan Anand Nath ji speaks about Swara’s connection and reference in spiritual practices.  He shall also guide you to many practicals & amazing swara-vigyaan applications.

The centre of attraction for all of you will be revelation of the secret practice of ‘Laghu Chhaya-Purush Upasana’ by Ma Shakti Devpriya ji. This particular practice has also been taught in its elaborate form in the Islamic Tantra traditions in another name (it is called ilm-e-hamzaad there). This is for those courageous and fearless students who wish to amaze themselves with their own super-human capabilities.

The day generally ends with a musically uplifting evening. Local artists showcase their talent to thrill and sway the group. We plan a visit to an Energetic place like temple, lake, mount or forest as well.

Important scribbles

One thing that a learner should keep in mind is that this residential programme mark the beginning of a New phase in your life. From hereon things will not remain the same for you, the only condition being the learner should continue with the practices and conduct his/her life according to learnt principles of Swara Vigyaan.

Second important point is that by application of the practical tips and secrets of the Swara system that are offered by Ma Shakti ji in this 5-day residential programme you ensure your growth in the Swara Yoga Practices.

Third point, this science is a lifetime learning process therefore once you have attended this retreat you should try and attend refresher courses on Swara-System (that are offered from time to time by Ma Shakti Devpriya ji) to elevate your calibre, understanding and knowledge.

*The program is open only for those who have taken ‘Tattva Shakti Vigyaan Discipleship Programme’ as advanced Mantric processes of Swara-Yoga and Laghu Chhaya-Purush sadhana are transmitted only in Guru-Shishya parampara.

The Power of Five Elements : Workshop on Applied Knowledge of the 5 Cosmic Energies

THE  POWER  OF   FIVE   ELEMENTS

Know Your Dominant Element!

You are what Tattvas make of you!

Everyone has an innate desire to know more about self and the surroundings. In this search of knowing more one studies, gathers knowledge from all the available streams of knowledge around but the thirst is not quenched as basic questions arise again and again- What we are? and What makes us the way we are? How to change ourselves?

The answer to these questions lie right in front of us but we fail to get it as it seems to be too obvious to be so… but yes it is right. The Five great elements viz; Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Space or Ether function as building stones of not only the whole perceivable and unperceivable universe, but also of our complete being. Whatever we are today, our behaviour, personality, habits, health, attitude and even the train of thoughts are attributed to the subtle interplay of the 5 Great Elements within us. The Five Great elements referred to as PanchTattvas are something we know about but too less of what they have to offer us.

You can change your Nature & Attitude

Most of us behave in weird ways and the have the habit of saying that it is my nature! This statement is somewhat true but after all what nature is?  Your unique nature, good or bad is outcome of the interplay of Five Elements in you.

This workshop by Ma Shakti & Acharya Agyaatadarshan ji shall reveal to you that uniqueness, some of which as a person you have always helplessly carried along comes to existence and how is this unique nature of yours is developed. The Panch-Tattva Bodha workshop helps correlate your nature to the dominant Element in you and also how each Tattva is secretly affecting your life, relationship, health and career. With the knowhow and renewed understanding gained in this Workshop you will be able to change your life, attitude and nature in extremely easy ways.

Change Your Life with Power of Tattvas

We are always surrounded by the Panch-tattvas but are not able to connect to the inherent hidden energies within them. This Masters’ Workshop Panch-Tattva Bodha gives you easy to do and powerful techniques to connect with the Elements (Tattvas) in the forms just as you know them.

Most of us  know these Elements albeit only in their raw forms. Everyone of us breathes the Air, cooks on the Fire, consumes the vegetables & grains grown on the Earth, drink and bathe in the Water and share the living and working Space with others. But we hardly know about the mysterious powers and secrets each Element (Tattva) has  in them. For example if we knew this Water Element gives us power to create great relationships; Earth if properly managed gives us material abundance and security and so on…  our approach towards them shall definitely change!

The Power of Tattva Shakti Sadhana – Experienced

FOLLOWING  IS THE ACTUAL MAIL  from an advanced    TATTVA   SHAKTI   VIGYAAN    PRACTITIONER    WHO OVERCAME    HIS   DECADES   OLD   ISSUE   WITH   THE POWER OF CONTINUOUS SADHANA!
Dear Ma Shakti and Acharya ji,
Shivoham!
I wanted to recount one of the experiences that happened to me 3 weeks ago.
You know that my stutter causes me a lot of anxiety and despair at times. This anxiety and despair increases when there are interviews to happen.
3 weeks ago, I was appearing in a job interview, within my company here in USA.
Ma had just taught me basics to Swar Vigyaan. The interview was about 1 week away and I started to prepare myself mentally for it:
1) I started meditating more – 2 hours a day, primarily feeling my breath or mentally repeating Soham with breath
2) Started affirming to myself that I will just do my duty – tried to be more dispassionate and surrendering to God
3) I also started gathering my will power – saying to myself that I will not stutter
4) I kept focusing on breath to keep my mind composed even after the meditation hours – I understood that the more I kept the mind under control throughout the day, the easier it will be to gain composure at a quick notice. I understood that there are no meditation hours and after hours.
5) I also tried to develop a sense of equanimity towards all – people up the ladder and down the ladder are but same spirits like me. This makes love flow for them and made me more comfortable.

I was able to manage my speech so well that the 3 member interview panel did not know that I stutter at all – even after 1 hour of discussion!

The outcome was not positive in the sense that I did not get the job, but I was very satisfied with what I was able to do.
To repeat the same seems to be an uphill task, because I have to summon all my energies, will-power, concentration and Love of Guru/God to do it – but Now I know it is possible. Just sustaining it for longer period is not easy.

I am extremely happy with what I was able to accomplish, to know that we have all that we need within ourselves. And that with perseverance, Guru and God by one’s side, everything is doable.

Pranam!

The Discipleship Programme – First Initiation (Deeksha)

Tattva   Shakti   Vigyaan   Initiation

Pratham Koti Deeksha – The First Initiation

There comes a moment in the life of every spiritual student when one realizes the importance of commitment and dedication to the ‘chosen path’. A deeper intuition takes charge of life and makes one courageous to the core to be able to experiment with life-energies and be open to receive commands rather than just advices and so  much more… The Student-Teacher relationship is transformed and now Teacher becomes the Master and Student – The Disciple.

Discipleship Program – What is in it for me

If you are still asking this question it probably means you aren’t ready to receive ‘Initiation’. A bond between the teacher and student has to become trust centric before such a step is contemplated. The Tattva Shakti Vigyaan discipleship program marks the beginning of altogether different level of journey in spirituality. Having gone through this initiation process means you are now identifiable as the ‘sadhaka’ of an ancient Tantric lineage in the form of  ‘The Lodge of Masters’ – Gurumandala.

You receive a personal mantra from the ‘Lodge of Masters’ and with this mantra comes your connection and access to unbound support, guidance and protection of yours in your spiritual endeavours. It also means now onwards your genuine queries about ‘Sadhana’ and personal development shall taken up by Masters and appropriate shifts and course corrections shall be advised from time to time.

Every practitioner who receives ‘Initiation’ is monitored by the living and astral Masters in the lineage of Shiva for their spiritual conduct, challenges in Sadhana and obstacles in  growth. Upon receiving this ‘initiation’ you come a step closer  to ‘Shri Vidya – Krama Deeksha‘.

You are inducted in discipleship of Tantra Masters, in the pious lineage of adept Shri Hayagreevaananda ji by Ma Shakti and Acharya Agyaatadarshan Anand Nath.

Expected Conduct of the Disciple

There are no set rules for disciples at this stage however it would be unfair to say there are ‘No Rules’ because as a learner one has to strive to cultivate virtues conducive to one’s personal growth. Following pointers are just expectations except the last ones in REDs. These are indicative and open to your personal interpretation.  Receiving First Initiation ‘Pratham Koti Deeksha‘ is about:

  • Taking responsibility of your life and your actions.
  • Inform the Masters about any of other practices you are currently engaged in.
  • Initiation is the first formal step in the life of the practitioner to ‘Live’ in ‘Shakti Consciousness every moment. That you shall try to inculcate this attitude.
  • That you shall kindle your awareness and deepen it with time.
  • Update your progress/challenges at least every 3 months. That ensures Masters would be able to help you better.
  • Accept the authority of your Guru / the Master in the domain of your spiritual conduct.
  • Gurumandala requires  your commitment and dedication to the principles of particular Tantric lineage of your living Masters. Keep the practices and Mantra Secret.*
  • In case you wish to quit your Sadhana – You MUST inform the Gurus. This is needed to be able to suitably guide you through the proper ‘Tantric Process of Separation’**
  • DO NOT MISS TO READ THE FOOTNOTES

Who is Eligible

To become eligible for your Discipleship Program through First initiation you are expected to have gone through minimum of following courses –

  • Nadi-Shodhan
  • Panch-Tattva : Know Your Dominant Element
  • Secrets of Panch-Koshas and Chakras
  • The Tattvic Matrix

Another frequently asked question is I have already taken an initiation from some other Guru. Am I still eligible? The answer to this question is as following –

First scenario is for those who have received Proper Initiation*** in a lineage. If you have received proper Deeksha (Initiation) in a lineage and if your Guru is still in the body (alive) you should discuss your intent with him and ONLY with his permission you should come for this deeksha. If your Guru asks, you may be required to surrender his mantra (or go through the process of separation) as well.

In case your Guru is not in body you can humbly convey your intent to drop the practices he/she had given citing your own genuine reasons (lack of guidance, not able to progress etc.) and then you can proceed for Discipleship Program.

Second scenario is where your initiation is not proper (please read the footnotes for more information). In such situation it is purely your choice to go ahead and get into Discipleship program.

Can I continue my previous Practices

Spiritual practices are personalized regimes for the practitioners as decided by the Guru. If teacher feels it right you may be allowed to continue with your some/all the previous practices however you should keep in mind that mixing of many Spiritual practices from different Gurus generally doesn’t do any good (Ma Shakti & Acharya Agyaatadarshan Anand Nath don’t recommend that as well) therefore make up your mind to drop your current practices forehand because if your practices are found to be interfering in your Tantric path, you may be asked to stop practicing them.

How does it feel after Initiation

You don’t need fear for anything. Just to reassure you, there are thousands of Tattva Shakti Vigyaan practitioners across the globe. In case you want to speak with them over phone / internet just drop us a mail we shall be happy to connect you with anyone near you. Alternatively you can visit our YouTube channel and watch the glimpses of expressions of people who have received Initiation and are practicing regularly. In fact it is through regular practice and Sadhana the practitioners derive many beautiful experiences, wisdom and joy of transformation.

How will I receive my Initiation

The first initiation leading to Discipleship Program is done face to face. In unavoidable circumstances Masters may use the way of LIVE Transmission in case the disciple is unable to present himself/ herself physically before them. Generally the disciple is directed to perform certain rituals, chant prayers under the direct supervision of Ma Shakti or Acharya ji to assist in the process of initiation.

It should be noted that further higher initiations by Masters in Tattva Shakti Vigyaan and Krama are NOT available without making yourself physically present for the ceremony.

To register write to us** at shakti.multiversity@gmail.com

** NOTE – Only students who have completed requisite courses (refer eligibility section) need apply!

* Personal Mantras are to be kept secret to prevent the leakage of your own energies gathered in Spiritual Practices (Sadhana). There is whole lot of reasons about maintaining this secrecy and they are communicated to you during the ‘Initiation/Deeksha’.

** The Tantric process of separation is a mandatory ritual in many spiritual lineages. In the case of Tattva Shakti Vigyaan initiation also this is adopted. A dissenting practitioner may choose to leave the practices without undergoing this however that does not benefit the disciple in any way and he/she may find severe stagnation in his/her future spiritual endeavours.  

*** If you have gotten formal ‘deeksha or initiation’ in a Spiritual Lineage that means you must be given the names of your all the Gurus (minimum of four generation – known as ‘Guru Pankti’ ( Guru, Param Guru, Paraatpara Guru & Paremeshthi Guru). As per spiritual traditions if you have not been given these names you are NOT gotten proper DEEKSHA. Many teachers just tell you that they are ultimately in the lineage of Shiva etc. that doesn’t qualify as ‘Guru-Pankti’. Some of the Teachers tend to believe that they have received initiation from many Gurus in their dream/meditations etc., technically that also does not qualify them as representative Acharya/Disciple in any lineage.

Swar Yoga – Ultimate Science of Success from Shiva

S W A R    Y O G A

Ultimate Science of Success from Shiva!

The Swara Yoga – Workshop for Beginners

Success sutras from the First Yogi & Tantra Master – Lord Shiva  find elaborate mention in the Tantric discipline called ‘Swar Yog‘ or Swara Vigyaan. This is an ultimate practical science in the Tantric lineages for achieving greater success & siddhis in material life. What more can be said about it. It is said in the scriptures that “Swaras are the essence of ‘atman or consciousness’ itself. One who attains the knowledge of Swaras is capable of creating success on all fronts of life. The one who knows the essence of Swaras attains complete knowledge of Vedas and other scriptures.”

What is Swar Yoga

Breathing is an important aspect and function of the physical body. Breath carries the most vital aspect of life that is prana. Prana is the connection between mind, body and consciousness. Most of the people are aware of the long list of benefits Pranayama & various controlled breathing process offer for one’s physical and mental well-being. For any spiritual aspirant the breath is tool and a vehicle for attaining the ultimate goal—Self Realization.

Swar Yog moves beyond all this. It offers a deeper insight into the rhythms of breath and its Tattvic quality. Swar Yog utilizes the different cycles of the Elements (tattvas) in the body for mental and physical healing igniting perfect intuition needed for successful living. According to Swar Yog, the right side of the body has solar dominance while the left side has lunar dominance. When one breathes from a particular nostril, one is capable of absorbing certain type of psychic and Tattvic energies from the outer universe. Also, depending on the nostril one is breathing through different types of energies are generated within the body. All the mental and psychic faculties are greatly affected by the nasal dominance. A seasoned Swar Yogi uses his/her persistent state of awareness to use these Tattvic cycles for the benefit of self and others.

Benefits of Practicing Swar Yog

Swar Vigyaan is the science of creating all round success in life. Our lives are the sum-total of all the choices and decisions we made till now. We could change our lives only if we knew how to choose the best among the choices available.

The Master of Swar Vigyaan and Founder of The Shakti Multiversity, Ma Shakti Devpriya says “The best capacity endowed with the practitioners of Swara is wisdom of making right choices. A Swara Yog practitioner intuitively acts on the ‘best choice’ always. Therefore his/her life is free of obstacles and is always in synchronicity with the best divine has to offer.”

There are innumerable benefits of SwarYog practices

  • Increased Awareness
  • Able to heal instantly
  • Instant improvement in Brain Power and Memory
  • Balanced Pranic system
  • Increased Success and abundance
  • Capacity to Change your Luck
  • Access your hidden capacities
  • Change opportunities into success
  • Balanced mind and emotions
  • Change enemies into friends
  • Tune in to the Lunar and solar energies for best outcomes
  • Work according to the natural Swara cycles
  • Know the right time for everything you do
  • Change anytime to auspicious time
  • Assessment of Universal energies

Is it Easy to Learn?

One must keep in mind that Swar Yog is the highest practice in the domain of breath-sciences. Although the principles of this science had been available freely but true knowledge of Swar Vigyaan had been limited to the circles of Masters only as it requires rigorous discipline and dedication from the practitioner to achieve perfection in the subject. A SwarYogi needs to be extremely disciplined and free from all negative influences.

In a nutshell, barring few the practices of Swara Vigyaan are easy to learn but mastering them may require lifetime of efforts – Of course a living Master is mandatory who will decide how much to give you, depending on your capacity*. Swar Yoga Basic Workshop is a good beginning for anyone who is willing to explore this fantastic science.

*Note – Few Swar Vigyaan practices have always been closely guarded, primarily because they deal with very subtle energies of the body and cosmos. Such techniques allow the practitioner to take complete control of anyone’s mind and being but if done wrongly, in any manner they may not only harm the practitioner but completely derail one’s spiritual development. It is therefore advised to every practitioner that he/she should engage ONLY in the specified practices.
