Friends, Lord Shiva is heard with saying that he is Tamoguni. Tamoguna means dark qualities. Shiva wanders with the ghosts in the crematorium. On top of his body, he massages the ash of cremation ground. It is also said that Lord Shiva is the ultimate Satoguna form. Satoguna means light qualities. In this way both opposing qualities are shown inside Shiva. Then it is said to justify that Shiva is Tamoguni from outside, but Satoguni from inside. Today we will clarify this through Tantric Kundalini Yoga.
Kundalini is the main source of Sattva component of Shiva
In fact, Shiva is the first Lord of Tantra. We can also call him the first Tantric of creation. If we study the conduct of the tantric yogi carefully, then the doubts arising in relation to Shiva will also disappear. Left Tantric are generally considered to be the real Tantric. They also consume five makaras or 5 Ms. Surely, Shiva is not a Panchmakarik, but Tamoguna stays with him just like with the Panchamakarik tantrik. Tamoguna arises through consumption of these panchamakaras inside the common men of the world. This is because they are unable to handle the energy generated by these and do wrong work in their charge. Those wrongdoings add more to Tamogun. The Panchamakaras themselves create a sharp movements or waves in gunas, which also naturally creates tamoguna in most of the people of the common world, under whose influence, they may take wrong step. But a Tantrayogi calms the stir of gunas with the advaita bhava or nondual sentiment achieved through his Kundalini Yoga. A yogi often seeks the help of an Advaita Shastra to do this. The Advaita scriptures contain philosophical books about the deity, such as Puranas, Stotras, etc. Physiology philosophy or sharirvigyan darshan in Hindi is also an excellent class modern Advaita literature. Yogi keeps advaita scripture overlaid on a state of his present gunas. He keeps on understanding the truth that all his conditions exist everywhere and in everything. This makes the Kundalini shine with peace and joy. This gives him a lot of Kundalini benefit, because Kundalini is living often with Advaita. This causes the Kundalini to shine faster. When Kundalini gets the life force and neuronal power suppressed by tamoguna, she starts to come alive. This occur just like candle or spark shining brilliantly in the dark. That’s why Kundalini yoga is quickly fruiting if practised in cremation ground as by Lord Shiva. Anyway, it is seen that in the plethora of Tamoguna conditions, the movement of thoughts is stopped in the brain. This may be due to any fear, sadness, passing near the accident, stress, depression, intoxication, tamoguni non veg food, work fatigue of mind and body etc. At such times, neuronal energy is being stored in the brain. In this, the thoughts which arise in between, they are very powerful and bright, because they are receiving condensed neuronal energy. Yogis keep converting these thoughts into single Kundalini thought. This keeps all the neuronal energy going to the Kundalini. The same principle works behind the great benefits generated by remembering God or Kundalini in bad times. After this Tamogun phase, thete comes Satogun and Rajoguna phase. It is filled with the light of thoughts. Actually stored neuronal energy is exiting. It is flooded with bright ideas. The common man wastes neuronal energy in them, but the yogi converts those thoughts into Kundalini and gives all the energy to the Kundalini. She travels on all the chakras through Kundalini yoga, and makes each of these healthy and strong. The whole body and mind is filled with joy and light. In this way, the things by which the tamoguna is produced within the common man, they produce the satoguna within the tantrayogi. Due to this very reason, the people of the world see lord Shiva as Tamoguni from outside, but basically he is Satoguni from inside. This also leads to the union of yin and yang, which leads to enlightenment. Yin is tamogun, and yang is satogun.
