Tantra is the Key-word:
The Key to these affirmations.
Tantra questions everything:
Tantra believes everything too.
That is the irony of this projection.
If Maya is a magic veil,
Tantra seeks the magician behind
the veil, also the magic veil.
To Tantra, the world is a perfect sign language-scattered
symbols eternally reconstructing Shiva.
The most complex minds have
laboriously unearthed the simple minded
theorems of Tantra.
Be suspicious of Tantra:
But Tantra is no fool's paradise.
Tantra is the Universe seeking itself:
Shiva awaiting the ageless union with Shakthi.
Why did they separate?
That is the mystery.
To see the 'whole' in every part.
That is the Truth of Tantra.
Tantra is beyond classification:
Tantra sees perfection Everywhere.
Every Bhava and Mudra are
an essential part of Universal Tantra.
The `Dance of Shiva' includes All
Motion and stillness:
Infact it is All and Beyond Itself.
There are Infinite Shakthis:
But truly there is only one Shiva.
There are infinite variations of Yantras
infinite variations of Lingas:
Yet there is only one "Purna Linga Purusha" - Shiva.
Linga is the first sculpture:
Sheet abstraction. The first icon:
The Final Revelation.
Linga symbolizes the unknown:
The Infinite concealed in the Finite.
Linga is also the mysterious genital symbol the eternal creative energy submerged in the Depths of Mooladhara.
Linga also indicates that the infinite manifestations of the Deity are beyond finite representations.
Shiva's face is still a great mystery.
Between the Matra and Mudra,
Universes of Perfection Awaiting Manifestation.
Mantra, Matra, Mudra, Yantra,
Linga-In their Self Evident Infinities
Tantra is Established.
Nataraja!! Dance Lord of All Rhythm.Dance Lord of All.
Tantra is a ritual of purification learning to see the Pure Everywhere.
Tantra is a trick, a technique:
But mostly It is Light,
Self Evident Impeccability.
Truly there is only one Tantrik-Shiva,
the unborn, the Ever Born.
Through the first Yajna the Deity had
sacrificed himself as the cosmoses.
Tantra perceives the cosmoses as the tangible body of the Deity
Yajna is God loosing himself as the cosmoses.
Tantra is god realizing himself as the cosmoses.
Tantra is Infinite.
Only an Infinitesimal has been perceived.
If Tantra is truly established
immortality is the natural consequence:
a never ending ecstasy all over the Universes.
One dazzle of an atom of Shiva's hair is
enough light for all eternity.
There is infinite more:
The infinite forms of Shiva and his various Shakthis.
The Perfection of a studies ritual,
Perfection of Every Ritual,
Perfection in Everything - that is
the Grandiose Aspiration of Tantra.
We may say that
Yantra represents the pervasiveness:
Linga is the Witness, the Eye.
Thought leading to Absolute Astonishment:
That is the movement of Tantra.
The symbols and rituals of Tantra
are only a feeble representation of a Magic Alchemy
Eternally Possible, Awaited by All.
To believe and then to Realize
the Infinite Significance of
Every trivial Gesture and Detail is the Truth and power
Tantra seeks infinite pleasure:
But it also seeks infinite pain.
That is the beauty of its enunciation.
Eternal felicity for the Beings:
The final physical Metamorphosis to Perfection-
An Absolute Immortality.
The hero seekers of Tantra sensed
such subtle impulses of the Purusha
encased in this miracle body.
Tantra realizes the body as a
mysterious `Time Machine' infinitely free.
Vedic and Tantrik are two faces of the same coin.
"Om" is the sure link. The "Kesin Hymn" is close to a possible description of a Tantrik.
Flowers Express the Truth Submerged in the Depths of Tantra.
If "Om" is understood Everything should be Absolutely Evident "Om" is not understood.
That is our Ancient tragedy and our Perfect Hope.
Tantra preaches genuine love:
But also genuine hatred:
That is its uniqueness.
'Genuine' is the key adjective and sound.
To realize 'the one without a second'
But also to realize, the essence of every detail.
That is the Tantrik's vanity and predilection.
The Universe is Awaiting the TimeWhen the crescent Moon on Shiva's head would become the Full Moon.
That event would signify the end of Ignorance, the Beginning of a New knowledge.
Shiva is the creator of All and More.
But he is born as the trivialest of trivialest creatures.
Yet he proves that he is All and Much More. Behind the available Tantrik paraphernalia and rituals, the Ultimate Desire to Create the Creator of All, pervades Apocalyptically concealed Revealed.
If somebody smartly utters Shivoham (I am Shiva) Request him to Reveal the Moon and Ganga on his Head. Also ask him to Dance his Thandava. That is All.
Shiva is Sundaramoorthy and Beebhatsa Purusha
Shiva is SadaShiva and Rudra
Shiva is ParamaYogi and Kameshwara
Shiva is Nataraja and Dakshinamoorthy.
All Together.How is it possible?
We will have to ask him when he Arrives as
"SadaShiva Allaha Narayana Rudra Isa Jehovah Brahma Krishna Kalki Purusha Dakshinamoorthy Maitreya Narayana........And What not !
The true Tantrik uses his symbols only to abandon them. For soon, he perceives the Universe as the luminous Yantra, himself as Tantra, his Miracle Breath as Pranava and he desparately seeks his Absolute Lord SadaShiva in Himself and in Everything.
Samukta Avyaya ArdhaNareeshwara Shariram (Unified Undefinable Anima-Animus Body) - Every Tantrik in his Strange Being Seeks the Miracle Multi-dimensional Body and A Never Ending Discovery of its Magic Energies and Apocalyptic Hopes.
Tantra recognizes the mysterious secret of the Metaphysical aspects of Eros.
But then why this word 'Tantra'
Why not "Kuntra" or "Knoknokno"
That is the Mystery of Mantra and the Magic of Sound.
Tantra is The Key Mantra.
The Key to These Affirmations.
