Friends, I have a habit of reading mystical literature every day. This keeps my right brain active, because it is difficult to apply logic to mystical stories. Our right brain is also like a mad or illogical man with a sluggish nature. The stories of Hindu Puranas are also like a puzzle. If they are understood, then the left brain becomes active, and if not, the right brain becomes active. Meaning that they always benefit in every situation. I have been able to identify the secret of one such plot this week. I read only one page of Shivpuran every day, in original Sanskrit and in Hindi. The fun of the original Sanskrit is something else. This week I have come across an important Tantric secret. I am sharing it here.
Lord Brahma curses Kamadeva and gives birth to Rati and them marries her to Kamadeva
When Brahma created Cupid or Kamadeva then he became proud of himself. He started testing his power on Brahma. Due to this, Brahma became enamored, praising the makeup of his own daughter and became attached to her. Actually this beautiful creation created by Brahma is his daughter. Cupid is also a symbol of indulgence here. Then Shiva stopped him. When Brahma came to know about Kamadeva’s actions, he cursed him saying that if he had to test his power, then why did he do it in front of his daughter. That curse was for Kamadeva to be burned to ashes by Shiva. Shiva is the god of tantra, lustful kamadeva is already ash in front of him. Then Brahma produced his another daughter named Rati from the sweat of his body. She was the most beautiful in the universe. Brahma married her to Kamadeva. Seeing her beauty, Kamadeva forgot his Mohini Vidya or deluding power.
Cupid is the lust of the human mind and Rati is Kundalini
It is also mentioned in the scriptures that even one should not meet his daughter and sister absolutely alone, because Kamadeva is very strong. So it is not surprising that Brahma had become attached to his daughter. To subdue his work, he practiced yoga hard. The drops of his sweat are a symbol of this relentless Kundalini-Yoga practice. The Kundalini which became active or awakened by Kundalini Yoga, is being called by the name of Rati. Kundalini has been given the name Rati because it is attained only by continuous involvement (rat in Sanskrit) in yoga. The word Rat is a major spiritual term like Dhyan Rat, Bhakti Rat etc. It also means absorbed. Kundalini is found only by being absorbed in someone’s love or meditation. The name Rati Krida or romantic play is also derived from this. Because both the mind and its most favored part, Kundalini, are strengthened by sex, that is why Kundalini is named Rati. This is explained in a metaphorical form, because in the olden days mystical knowledge was not directly made public. That’s why such techniques are called guhya vidya or confidential practices. The story of Kamadeva-Rati also reveals that the Creator of the universe remains untouched by the enticing charm of his beautiful creation only by the power of Kundalini yoga.
Kundalini in the form of Rati kept the lust of the gods and sages under her control
When the deities and sages came to know the secret that kundalini could control sex, they started practicing yoga regularly. That is why Kundalini in the form of Rati has been considered to be the most beautiful, because Cupid attracts the soul only towards beautiful material things. Cupid was defeated in front of Rati. It means Rati or Kundalini is the most beautiful. She is so beautiful that under her delusion, many people leave the world of very good household with heavenly wife and become sannyasins or renunciates. She stopped the business of Cupid. Kamadeva’s marriage to Rati means that just as a married man tied to a woman does not look at other women, similarly he too was tied by a Kundalini named Rati. A little explanation of this mystery has also been done there through a verse, in which it is written that Kamadeva used to hide his beloved Rati in his heart in such a way just as a yogi keeps his Brahma Vidya or enlightenment mantra hidden in his heart. Now the real Brahmavidya is Kundalini only, because she leads to Brahm or supreme formless God. Everyone sees a yogi in different circumstances, sometimes in happiness, sometimes in sorrow, sometimes in depression, sometimes in guilt, and sometimes in a state of euphoria. But they do not even recognize that Kundalini of his mind, which remains the same in all these states. Similarly, Rati always remains with Kamadeva, as both married together. Kama’s marriage to Rati also means practicing tantric yoga with social wife with ekpatnivrata or single wife always. According to Tantrayoga literature, first of all only Karma Yoga and simple Kundalini Yoga have to be practiced for many years. During that time the Kundalini named Rati is born, it grows, and reaches the sexual stage, which means it becomes very strong. Then she becomes eligible for marriage with kama or lust. It is only when the Kundalini becomes quite mature that there is the tantric ruling to do continued ordinary Kundalini yoga in a mixed form with sexual yoga. This is the marriage of Rati and Kama. If Rati’s child marriage is done prematurely with kama in haste, then there may be loss rather than profit. This is clearly warned in Tantrashastra. If a person harboring the married couple of kama-rati gets into the passion of sex, then people consider him to be ordinary sexually attached. They are unable to see that Rati standing with kama or lust, which is always beneficial. Many tantra yogis get harassed because of this reason. They come in innocence and try to perform Kama-Rati play, but people are able to see only Kama and not the Kundalini named Rati standing with him.
In fact, all indulgent cravings come in the realm of kama. Therefore Kundalini named Rati gets married to all of them and joins them. In the sense of kama, only sexual desire is taken because it is the main and most dominant of all indulgences.
Tantra yogis take the help of Kamadeva to create Rati
It is called hitting the enemy with the enemy’s own arrow. Cupid’s arrow is world famous. Tantra yogis provide additional strength to their Kundalini with the help of Panchamkaras. They actually transforms their energy mainly sexual energy into kundalini energy.
Scientific explanation of Rati-Kama marriage
The force of lust or kama increases blood circulation to the brain. That is why the mind becomes happy. If a man is a Kundalini yogi, it is obvious that the majority of his brain is interfered by Kundalini. In such a situation, if the blood circulation in the brain will increase, then only Kundalini will get the maximum benefit from it. Because Kundalini is in a way a mental picture of high definition resolution, it consumes a lot of life energy or prana. Due to this the storm of kama calms down effortlessly, blissfully and quickly.
