Wishing all very happy Shivaratri
Friends, I had mentioned in previous posts that Lord Shiva lives like a mast-malang/free and fare tantrik. They do not have anything extra except some very important things. Mata Parvati is also one of them, with whom he wanders freely in Kashi.
It is necessary to stay away from the mess of worldliness for the attainment of Tantra
According to Shivpuran, Lord Shiva originated Lord Vishnu to stay away from the mess of worldliness. He entrusted him with the responsibilities of upholding and protecting the world. He himself started to worship and travel in Kashi to do Yogasadhana happily with Parvati. It is said that they continue to roam there even today.
Premayogi Vajra’s own personal experience of solitude
Premayogi Vajra was also trapped in the mess of worldliness like Lord Shiva. He worked hard for nearly 20 years, and established many developmental feats. However, his tendency was also towards Tantric life. Due to this, he was able to stay in the advaita bhava. He used to feel tired from it. This was because some extra energy is also spent to maintain the advaita bhava or Kundalini. Nothing is possible without energy, not even God. That is why Shakti is considered an integral part of Shiva. However, with occasional tantric eating and living, that energy was easily supplied. The fire also burns him, who knows about it; And burns him equally, who does not know about it. Similarly, the mess of worldliness creates a darkness of ignorance within everyone. It is a different matter that the dark is less dense in man with nondual knowledge. This is similar to the way a man who learns about fire tries to avoid it, which makes him less burnt. At the same time his love for Shiva was awakened due to some unforeseen circumstances. Then due to the similar divine circumstances, he got an opportunity to live with his close family in a place full of solitude, far away from home. He almost forgot his old life. In a way Lord Shiva freed him from the mess of worldliness like his own way. It is worth noting here that one who is entangled in the world gets the fruit of renunciation. One who is already asleep, does not get any benefit from sleeping. That is why it is written in Shivpuran that Shiva appointed Vishnu to handle the mess of worldliness and left the world on his own and went to Kashi. An officer can assign his subordinates to the same responsibilities, which he himself knows well and which he has long experience in carrying out. If Lord Shiva had not run the world for a long time, how could he have deputed Vishnu in his place. Those who do not accept the world strongly, they do not get the fruits of the renunciation of the world. So as long as you live in the world, be completely immersed, but keep your senses. Today, science also accepts that when the conscious functioning of the mind drops by more than 50 percent, then the possibility of self-awareness increases significantly. That is why in the old times, the kings used to abandon the kingdom completely and go to exile for austerity. The four ashrams were also built for this reason. The men used to visit the Vanaprastha Ashram located in seclusion, where they used to get a lot of peace after taken care of the mess of the Grihastha Ashram for long. In that seclusion, the Premayogi Vajra, like Shiva, spent a full Tantramayi life and began to visit his tantric companions in picturesque and religious places. This made his Kundalini operational, and within two years she woke up.
Consumption of cannabis by Shiva
The qualities of Lord Shiva’s stresslessness, masti/frankness, joyfulness, advaita and naivete, etc. have been shown as his intoxication of cannabis. People only get intoxicated for the attainment of these qualities. But most people are not able to succeed, because these qualities are dependent on the soul and not on the drug. If mild intoxication is done by tantric method and under the supervision of the Guru, then it can inspire them for permanent attainment of these by showing a glimpse of these qualities. Real and permanent attainment of these qualities is possible only through self-power.
Spiritual psychological secret hidden behind offering milk and cannabis mixed water to Lord Shiva
This morning I walked around with the family to visit a Shiv Mandir. Traveled 4 km on foot. The weather was very pleasant. Nature’s shadow was scattered all around. The honeybees were buzzing on yellow floral bunches of mango trees. People were coming to the temple. On the way, some puppies started walking with us, then sniffed something, stopped and looked around. On some old and big trees the vines were wrapped in such a dense manner, as if a sweetie was showing her attachment to her lover or mother to her baby. A dry tree was half bent down, and looked like an old man bent over tired up in his life. In fact, most of the time, we do not see anything. I have gone through that route many times, but I saw these things for the first time. Therefore, brain and mind should also be kept open with eyes. While coming from the temple, I broke some cannabis leaves along the way and brought them along. Grind them finely in the house with chanting of Shiva’s mantra for about 20 minutes. Then mixed it with some water, as much milk and some honey. I kept whipping that solution with chanting of Shiva mantra for about 25 minutes. Then filtered the solution to clean it. Taking a little solution from it, I went to another temple nearby with my wife. There I mixed it in the water of worship bowl and began to anoint the Shivlinga with it. For about 15 minutes I kept pouring that water on the Shivlingam little by little. The color of that water was somewhat milky and green. Another couple were also sitting close by, and were singing Shiva’s aarti along with the worship of Shiva. As soon as my water used to fall on the Shivlingam, my Kundalini got energy and started shining there. The mind was also in some romantic mood. In fact, that water had become the sexual substance of Lord Shiva. Color of that had turned white with milk, and cannabis had intoxicated that with sexuality. Once, I had the same feeling at the time of Darshan or seeing of Parad or mercury Shivlingam. When I searched on Google, it turned out that liquid mercury is solidified by a special ancient herbal technique. In a way, it has become a solid semen of Lord Shiva. This also sends a message to the subconscious that the wandering liquid mind should be pacified by solidifying it with meditation. I came back home and drank half a glass of that liquid in the name of Lord Shiva.
