Kundalini as a Serpent

Friends, a few weeks ago, I along with my family got an opportunity to visit an ancient serpent-temple. That was quite famous, and a fair is held there throughout the month of Shravan/rainy month. I do not remember the idols etc. in its sanctum sanctorum, but there was a huge and colorful wall painting of the serpent touching the heart. He was like Sheshnag/multi hooded serpent, on which Lord Narayan sleeps. He had many hoods. I could find that as my familiar figure. There, my Kundalini also started glowing sharply, which made me enjoyed. He seemed to me some mysterious puzzle, which my mind tried to solve spontaneously.

Serpent is a symbol of darkness

My first analysis was that Narayana (God) is seen by the common man as a form of darkness. He does not see his light due to illusion of Maya. That is why Shesh Nag, a symbol of darkness, is shown with him. Nevertheless, I was not satisfied with this analysis.

Nag as a symbol of Kundalini

I was reading a post of yogaindia.com. Something was written in it, which I understood that the serpent is located on the muladhara chakra by placing three and a half spirals/rings. He is holding his tail with his mouth. When the Kundalini Shakti is passed through those rings, then he rises straight up and reaches the brain through the spinal cord. He is also accompanied by Kundalini Shakti.

I concluded from this that our nervous system looks like a raised serpent and acts like that. Scientifically, the sensations in the nerve travel in waves like a serpent. Vajra is the tail of that serpent. It can also be called half ring. The area of ​​the testicles is the first ring / coil. The second circle outside it is of flesh and fibers. The third ring is the bone, which is attached to the spinal cord. Just as a raised serpent has a bend in the inner direction at the lower back, similarly it is there in the lower part of our back (exactly opposite of the navel). After that both emerge outward, and then both have a bend of head, which is almost identical. Many heads of the serpent are shown because our head is several times wider and thicker than the spine, comparatively.

Our nervous system is like a serpent

We can also see the nerve inside the spinal cord like a serpent. Similarity will be found in both. The nadis/nerve fibers are also like serpent or rope. Consider the nerve of Vajra as the tail of a serpent. The same is also as a half ring as shown above. The Samvedana Kshetra/sensitive area of the Swadhisthana Chakra (where Kundalini is meditated) is the first ring / Kundal / circle of the Serpent. The nerves of the surrounding area also join there, that is the first whorl of the serpent. The second enclosure may be called that, where that nerve connects to the sacral plexus / network of nerves. The third circle can be called as where the sacral plexus joins the spinal cord. There the serpent / spinal cord stands up and also become thicker. In the lumbar region of the back, there is a bend with the pit towards the stomach. The next turn comes in upper area, close to the head. The neuronal network inside the head is there as many hoods of that serpent, which are attached to the spinal cord / serpent-body.

Kundalini Chakras of our body as main body points of god Serpent’s body

There is no need to go so deep as above. It is a simple matter that the entire sacral/sexual area is thick, circular and layered like a standing serpent’s ringed base. All its sensations go upwards through afferent nerves along with the sensation in Vajra / serpent-tail. The main bulging points of the serpent are the seven chakras of the body. Kundalini glows more at these points during meditation. The tip of the vajra is attached to the Muladhara Chakra. The snake’s tail (vajra) on the Swadhisthana Chakra (base of the vajra) is attached to that main body of the snake in the annular form, which is on the ground. The rising up of the snake on the rear Swadhisthana Chakra creates an angle of about 90 degrees. The deepest point of the turning of the body of the snake is on the posterior navel chakra. At the back of the Anahata Chakra, the body of the snake emerges out. The Vishuddhi Chakra at the back has the deepest point of turning of the hood-shaft of the snake. Above it comes the outward rise of the head/hood of the serpent again on the posterior Ajna chakra. Entire brain above it/the top of the entire brain  is the place, where there is a Kundalini sensation (in the middle of the foremost and most posterior part of the upper surface of the head; it feels like a pit here, hence it is also called Brahmarandhra). There are thousand phanas/hoods of the great serpent/god serpent. That is why it is called Sahasrar (one thousand parts). Kundalini is present on the middle main hood of the serpent.

Kundalini-experience with Nag/serpent during meditation

I was meditating with the tantric method one day in the same context. I started meditating on Nag in the above ways. I felt the Kundalini emerging on his tail / vajra-crest and going up to his multi hood / my brain with a serpent-like rustle. In my brain, kundalini was very shining, calm and like Lord Narayana. It was as if Lord Narayana was doing luxury over Sheshnag in the form of Kundalini. Together I got the same feeling as in the Naga temple above. Then I was able to understand the importance of serpent in spirituality.

Serpent worship

Serpent is considered sacred and revered in almost all religions. Narayana sleeps on the serpent. The serpent also sits on the forehead of Lord Shiva. In many religions, two snakes are shown wrapped together. They are possibly two tantric parteners tied in yab-yum asana/posture.

Nag is not Kundalini

I kept listening that Kundalini is a serpent. But kundalini is not a serpent. She walks like a serpent on Nag’s body / nervous system. In the same way, as God Vishnu/Narayana is not a serpent himself, but he shines on the serpent.

Nag gives extra strength to Kundalini

It is not that Kundalini awakening occurs only with the Nag. Premyogi vajra did not pay attention to the serpent. He once felt Kundalini rising straight up inside his body, like a helicopter rising straight up in the air. The attention to the serpent only gives her additional strength to get up. That is why the serpent is shown along with most of the big gods and goddesses.

Earth on Sheshnag’s head

There is a mythological belief that the god Sheshnag / Multi-Hooded Serpent has all the earth on his head. In fact, this Sheshnag is our own aforementioned nervous system. The whole earth is the same as all the experiences in our nervous system / brain. In fact there is nothing gross and out. This last sentence is the basic mantra of spirituality. 

Superimposing Kundalini over sensation

Every physical sensation goes through the nerve to the brain. When Kundalini / a special mental picture is superimposed over it, then she also reaches the brain with it. The most intense and enjoyable sensation of the body is that of the Vajra-tip. Therefore, the Kundalini charged with this sensation becomes alive in the brain. That is why it is said that Kundalini sleeps in Muladhara. In fact, only the Vajra-tip is depicted in Muladhara Chakra, both joining through an imaginary line. That is called the tail of the serpent. Kundalini sleeps there in the common man. This means that Kundalini cannot be awakened there. She has to be taken to the brain for awakening. Nag has his tail entered into his mouth. This means that kundalini starting at the Vajra, returns to the same in the form of ejaculation, and is wasted from there. The serpent’s standing upright by opening its coil means that the Kundalini is moved in a straight direction from the Vajra tip to the brain via the spinal cord, not rotated in the sexual area again and again. There can be a feeling that the whole sexual area (which is of a large snake’s ground pile / pitcher-like shape) is immersed with kundalini fully in all sides, kundalini thus gaining energy from it and going straight to the top. There at the top of serpent’s hood/brain, the Kundalini is strengthened, and it is not taken back to the vajra in the form of ejaculation. However, the Kundalini can be moved slowly down through the front / forward chakras, making them stronger. The Sanskrit word Kundalini means a thing having Kundali / coil along with. That is, a mental figure sitting on a serpent’s coil.

Kundalini for prevention of sexual violence

This tantric post is dedicated to Tantra’s Adidev/first God Bhagwan Shiva and Tantra Guru Osho.

It is certified that this tantric web post has not attempted to hurt anyone’s feelings. It has presented its own independent views of the tantric website in the public interest. We feel and express sympathy with rape victims.

Nowadays news of sexual violence is being heard everywhere. It is happening all over the world. No geographical area is an exception in this case. The most recent example is the ‘Dr. Priyanka Reddy sexual murder incident’ in Hyderabad recently. Another recent example is that of Unnao in Uttar Pradesh, where a rape victim was burnt alive. Let us consider the psychological, social and tantric aspects of these matters.

The main causes of sexual violence

The main causes of sexual violence are audiovisual materials served in public places, filled with obscenity, profanity, adultery and porn. Although, it should be kept in mind that these can benefit a sexually disciplined and tantric person physically as well as spiritually rather than harming. Therefore, type of mental attitude appears more important factor in this case.

The second main reason for sexual violence is lack of proper sex education in the society. In many places, the sex education that is given is not according to Tantra, so it is not completely effective. Real sex education is tantric sex education. Tantra is the science of sex. Nowadays, even when physical sex education is being spread everywhere, what is the reason for increasing sexual violence? The reason for this is that the spirituality of tantra is not being included in it. Physical sex education sometimes hurts rather than benefits, and deprives people of real sexual pleasure. It is Tantric sex education, which provides physical sexual pleasure, and enhances man physically, mentally, and spiritually.

The third main cause of sexual violence is the increasing mismanagement and unemployment in the society. This increases feelings of insecurity, which leads to sexual violence. The empty mind is the house of the devil. A man who does not have work and income, he thinks ludicrous.

The fourth cause of sexual violence is the lack of real spirituality. Spirituality also keeps the empty mind under control. That is why the jogi-fakir/sages never think or act wrong while sitting empty.

The fifth major reason is judicial reason. The justice system is also doing the right thing in its own way. However, it is not creating enough fear or shame in the mind of the criminal mindset. Crimes either stop with fear, or with shame. The way of causing shame in it is more humane. The harsh truth is that in most cases, criminals kill the rape victim only because of fear of punishment so that more evidence can be erased. It is also true that mostly sharp minded people become criminals. If such people continue to get proper guidance, then instead of crime, they can do many other important things in the society.

Prevention of sexual violence by adopting tantric ethos

Of course, Tantra looks like a sex-freak scripture from outside, but it is not. Tantra is the exact opposite of porn or rape. In this, the sexual partner is treated by one completely like himself own and is loved deeply. It involves mutual consent. There is a lot of attention on sexual health and sexual discipline in it. The truth is that in the face of disciplined tantra, even common and family love relations seem like rape. In Tantra, anyone’s daughter or wife is not made as a sexual partner. This does not harm anyone’s emotional wealth. Tantra has to maintain an intimate relationship with a sexual partner for a very long time. It cannot be changed for many years. It cannot be left in the lurch. This also prevents transient desires like rape, porn etc. In Tantra, Ekapatnivrat (keeping single wife for whole of one’s life) is considered the best ethics, and the wife is considered the best Tantric companion. The pairing of Lord Shiva-Parvati is a good example of this.

Prevention of sexual violence by preventing the exit of Kundalini Shakti

As much as possible, by stopping the ejaculation by tantric method, its power should be converted into Kundalini Shakti. However, tantric sex should not be discontinued after ejaculation done during the safe period of menstrual cycle (first 7 days and last 7 days of the cycle, although no period can be 100% safe), but it should continue with semen-protection. With ejaculation, shakti/power is extroverted and destroyed. This creates animosity towards the sexual partner, which can turn into sexual violence. In this way, the mouth of power (serpent) opens outwards, and remains the same for a long time. After a few days, when the mouth of the outsider Shakti (serpent) is closed, then the foolish man forced by habit opens it through the ejaculation again. Due to this, his Kundalini power is constantly extinguished and wasted. With this, the man is trapped badly in the fascination of the outside world, and many bad vices are born in him. That power should be ascended upwards (towards brain) as soon as possible after ejaculation. Even tantric sex done once with the preservation of semen and its upward guidance gives very beautiful results, even if sex is stopped after that for many days. With this, the negativity resulting from the outward drainage of psychic power (the serpent’s face is downward) takes the form of the positivity arising with its u-turn immediately (the serpent’s mouth is upward). This also increases the love towards the sexual partner, which prevents sexual violence. As and when semen increases, the level of Kundalini Shakti also increases with that in the brain. This happens because we have directed the power of semen to go to the brain through sexual yoga. With that, Kundalini develops itself towards the brain, because through sexual yoga we have superimposed the Kundalini on the semen power.

Kundalini yoga to curb sexual violence

It is psychologically and spiritually true that every creature makes sexual relations only for the development of its own Kundalini. The great Tantra guru Osho has also said that the attainment of Samadhi through sex is the easiest and most practical. Samadhi means continuous Kundalini-Dhyan/meditation or Kundalini-Jagran/awakening here. From this perspective, if the help of Kundalini-yoga is taken for the development of Kundalini, then there is no need for sex. For this reason, sages and great yogis were able to live a fully satisfied life without a lifetime marriage.

History has shown that ever since the soft Vedic culture has been encroached by fanatic or over materialist cultures, cases of sexual violence have increased, and have become gruesome. Therefore, Kundalini Yoga should be promoted to avoid sexual violence.

The following are the books that make tantric sex education universally approved and available-

2) Kundalini demystified – what Premyogi vajra says

3) Kundalini Science – A Spiritual Psychology .

शिव-अराधना से सर्वधर्मसमभाव- Love and brotherhood between all religions through Shiva-worship

पावन शिवरात्रि के अवसर पर सभी मित्रों को बहुत-२ शुभकामनाएं। (please browse down or click here to view this post in English)

आशुतोष शंकर बहुत जल्दी प्रसन्न हो जाते हैं। इसका अर्थ है कि उनके द्वारा उपदिष्ट तंत्र-साधना अतिशीघ्र मुक्ति प्रदान करती है। तंत्रसाधना हमारे दैनिक जीवन की गतिविधियों को आध्यात्मिक रूप देकर ही बनी है। उदाहरण के लिए निपुण तंत्रयोगियों का शरीर स्वयं ही मुड़ता, सिकुड़ता, फैलता व ऊपर की ओर उठता हुआ सा रहता है। ऐसा कुण्डलिनी को चक्रों पर स्थापित करने के लिए स्वयं ही होता रहता है। जब थकान होती है या कन्फ्यूजन होता है, तब भी ऐसा होता है, जिससे कुण्डलिनी मस्तिष्क-चक्र पर स्वयं ही प्रतिष्ठित हो जाती है। उससे एकदम चैन के साथ एक लम्बी सांस शरीर के अन्दर स्वयं ही प्रविष्ट होती है। नींद आने पर या बोरियत होने पर शरीर के उठने जैसे (अंगड़ाई) के साथ जम्हाई आने के पीछे भी यही रहस्य छिपा हुआ है।

शिव की मूर्ति मानवाकार होती है। इसका अर्थ है कि उस मूर्ति के अन्दर की कोशिकाएं (देहपुरुष) भी वैसी ही होती हैं, जैसी हमारे अपने शरीर के अन्दर की। इसका अर्थ है कि शिवमूर्ति की पूजा के समय हम उसमें स्थित देहपुरुष की ही पूजा कर रहे होते हैं। उस अद्वैतस्वरूप देहपुरुष को हमने अपनी मानसिक कुण्डलिनी का रूप दिया होता है। सीधा सा अर्थ है कि शिव-पूजन से भी कुण्डलिनी ही पुष्ट होती है। कुण्डलिनी-रूपी मानसिक चित्र किसी की व्यक्तिगत रुचि के अनुसार शिव का रूप लिए हुए भी हो सकता है, गुरु का रूप लिए भी हो सकता है, या प्रेमी / प्रेमिका का रूप लिए भी हो सकता है। कई बार तो कुण्डलिनी-चित्र शिव के जैसी वेशभूषा में भी अनुभव होता है, जैसे की बैल पर सवार, गले में सर्प की माला के साथ व डमरू के साथ, एक औघड़ तांत्रिक की तरह आदि-2। ऐसा शिव-पूजन के प्रभाव से होता है।

भगवान शिव दुनिया के सभी लोगों व धर्मों के आराध्य हैं। शिव-पूजन से दुनिया में सर्वधर्मसमभाव स्थापित हो सकता है। इससे धार्मिक उन्माद, कट्टरपंथ, व आतंकवाद पर रोक लग सकती है। सभी धर्म व दर्शन शिव से ही निकले हैं। इसका प्रमाण है कि भगवान शिव खान-पान के मामले में, पूजा के विधि-विधान के मामले में किसी से भेदभाव नहीं करते। उन्हें भूत-प्रेतों जैसे लोग भी उतने ही प्रिय हैं, जितने देवता जैसे लोग। वे सभी को प्रेम से व समान भाव से स्वीकार करते हैं, चाहे कोई किसी भी धर्म आदि का क्यों न हो। उनके द्वारा प्रदत्त तांत्रिक-साधना से यह स्पष्ट हो जाता है। शिवप्रदत्त तांत्रिक साधना ही सर्वाधिक वैज्ञानिक, प्रासंगिक, आधुनिक, सामाजिक, कर्मठतापूर्ण व मानवतापूर्ण है।

शिव-शक्ति अवधारणा सभी धर्मों में किसी न किसी रूप में मानी जाती है। जो सत्य है, वह शिव है। वही पूर्ण है। उसमें सभी भाव-अभाव हैं। उसमें स्त्रीभाव व पुरुषभाव, दोनों एकसाथ विद्यमान हैं। एक प्रकार से शिव का स्वरूप मनुष्य के उस रूप के करीब है, जिसमें वह समाधि में स्थित रहता है। यह सभी जानते हैं कि सर्वाधिक मजबूत समाधि तांत्रिक यौनसंबंध के साथ ही लगती है। अतः एक ही भगवान शिव को शिव-पार्वती के रूप में काल्पनिक रूप से विभक्त किया गया है, ताकि समझने में आसानी हो। वास्तव में शिव-पार्वती सदैव एकाकार ही हैं, इससे यह भी कल्पित हो जाता है कि शिव-पार्वती सदैव पूर्णरूप से तांत्रिक-साधना में लीन रहते हैं। शिवलिंग इस साधना का प्रतीक है।

रशिया में भी इसी तरह की एक लोककथा प्रचलित है कि आदमी कभी पूर्ण हुआ करता था। उससे देवताओं का राजा डर गया और उसने आदमी को दो हिस्सों में बाँट दिया। एक हिस्सा पुरुष बना, और एक हिस्सा स्त्री बना। तभी से लेकर दोनों हिस्से एकाकार होने के लिए व्याकुल होते रहते हैं, ताकि पुनः पूर्ण होकर देवताओं पर राज कर सकें।

कई लोगों को शंका हो सकती है कि शिव तो हमेशा ही तांत्रिक साधना में लीन रहते हैं, फिर उन्हें कामारि, यह नाम क्यों दिया गया है? वास्तव में, एक तांत्रिक ही यौन-दुर्भावना को जीत सकता है। यौनता से दूर भागने वाला आदमी यौन-दुर्भावना को नहीं जीत सकता। उसके अन्दर यौनता के प्रति इच्छा बहुत बलवान होती है, बेशक वह बाहर से उससे अछूता होने का दिखावा करता रहे। काम को वही जीत सकता है, जो काम के रहस्य को समझता हो। काम के रहस्य को एक सच्चे तांत्रिक से अधिक कोई नहीं समझ सकता।

भगवान शिव को भूतनाथ भी इसीलिए कहते हैं, क्योंकि वह उन तांत्रिकों का नाथ भी होता है, जो बाहर के आचारों-विचारों से भूत-प्रेत की तरह ही प्रतीत होते हैं। यद्यपि अन्दर से वे शिव की तरह ही पूर्ण होते हैं।

भगवान शिव को भोला इसलिए कहा जाता है, क्योंकि वह अपनी नित्य तांत्रिक-साधना के बल से पूर्ण अद्वैत-भाव में स्थित रहते हैं। अर्थात वे एक बच्चे की तरह होते हैं। उनके लिए काष्ठ, लोष्ठ व स्वर्ण आदि सब कुछ एकसमान है। यद्यपि वे जीवन-व्यवहार के लिए ही बाहर से भेदभाव का प्रदर्शन करते हैं, अन्दर से नहीं।

मुझे एक बार भगवान स्शिव स्वप्न में दिखे थे। वे एक ऊंचे चबूतरे जैसी जगह पर बैठे हुए थे। वे कुछ गंभीर यद्यपि शांत लग रहे थे, एक औघड़ व अर्धवृद्ध तांत्रिक की तरह। साथ में वे मस्त-मौले जैसे भी लग रहे थे। फिर भी, उनका पहरावा शिव के जैसा लग रहा था। उनके चारों तरफ बहुत से भूत-प्रेत धूम-धड़ाके व जोर के हो-हल्ले के साथ नाच-गा रहे थे। वह आवाज जोर की व स्पष्ट थी। वह विशेष, रोमांचकारी, व संगीतमयी आवाज (खासकर ढोल की डिगडिगाहट) मुझे आजतक कुछ याद सी आ जाती है। उन भूत-प्रेतों से तनिक भी डर नहीं लग रहा था, अपितु बहुत आनंद आ रहा था। ऐसा लगा कि मेरे कुछ जानने में आने वाले व दिवंगत लोग भी उस भूत-प्रेतों के टोले में शामिल हो गए थे। उस स्वापनिक घटना से मेरी कुण्डलिनी को बहुत शक्ति मिली, और उसके लगभग डेढ़ से दो वर्षों के बाद वह जागृत भी हो गई।

इसी तरह, लगभग 30 वर्ष पूर्व मैं अपने चाचा की बरात के साथ जा रहा था। एक बड़े पहाड़ के नीचे से गुजरते हुए मुझे भगवान शिव एक अर्धवृद्ध के रूप में शांति से एक बड़ी सी चट्टान पर पालथी लगा कर बैठे हुए दिखे। वहां पर लोग फूल-पत्ते चढ़ा रहे थे, क्योंकि उसके थोड़ा ऊपर व पेड़ों के पीछे एक शिव-पार्वती का मंदिर था, जो वहां से दिखाई नहीं देता था। मैंने भी पत्ते चढ़ाए, तो मुझे उन्होंने प्रसाद के रूप में कुछ दिया, शायद चावल के कुछ दाने थे, या वहीँ से कुछ पत्ते उठाकर दे दिए थे। मुझे पूरी तरह से याद नहीं है। वे मुस्कुराते हुए, कुछ गंभीर जैसे, साधारण वेशभूषा में, व एक औघड़-गुरु के जैसे लग रहे थे। फिर भी वे एक साधारण मनुष्य ही लग रहे थे। तभी तो शायद मैंने उनसे बात नहीं की। वैसे भी, तंग पगडंडी पर लोगों की लम्बी पंक्ति में जल्दी-२ चलते हुए बात करने का समय ही नहीं था।

भगवान शिव की महिमा का कोई अंत नहीं है, पर निष्कर्ष के रूप में यही कह सकते हैं, शिव है तो सब कुछ है; शिव नहीं है तो कुछ नहीं है।

Best wishes to all friends on the occasion of holy Shivratri.

Ashutosh Shankar becomes happy very easily. It means that the tantra-oriented technique provided by him gives liberation very quickly. The tantric techniques are made of the simple activities of our daily lives by giving those a spiritual shape. For example, the body of skilled tantric turns, shrinks, spreads and remains rising upward (tucking) itself. Such happen for kundalini to be installed on the chakras itself. When there is fatigue or confusion, this happens, due to which the Kundalini becomes distinguished itself on the cerebral chakra. With this, a long breath is drawn inside the body itself with a sudden relief. This secret is hidden behind the yawning with the body’s rise (body tucking up), when it comes to relieve of sleep or boredom.

Shiva’s idol is a human-form. It means that the cells (dehpurush) inside the body of that idol are also similar, as those in the inside of our own body. It means that while worshiping Shiva-idol, we are worshiping the non-dual dehpurush inside it. We have given the form of our mental Kundalini to that  dehpurush having non-dual attitude. It means straightforward that the Kundalini becomes strong even from Shiva-worship. Kundalini (mental image) can be having a form of Shiva according to somebody’s personal interest, can also be the form of a guru, or the form of boyfriend / girlfriend too. Many times, Kundalini-image is also experienced in Shiva-like costumes, such as one riding a bull, with a snake’s necklace and with a damroo (special drum), like a soft tantric etc. This happens with the influence of Shiva-Pooja (worship).

Lord Shiva is adorable of all people and religions of the world. Shiva-poojan can establish universal harmony in the world. It can prevent religious mania, fundamentalism, and terrorism. All religions and philosophies have come from Shiva. Its proof is that Lord Shiva does not discriminate against anyone in the case of eating-drinking and in the case of law and order of worship. He loves the people who are like the ghosts just equal to those people who are like God. He accepts all with love and with the same emotion, no matter how religious one is or what type the religion one has. It is clear from the tantric-sadhana given by him. Shiva-provided Tantric Sadhana is the most scientific, relevant, modern, social, productive, and humanistic.

Shiva-Shakti concept is considered in some form in all religions. That which is truth that is Shiva. That is the whole thing. There are all emotions in it. In it, both femininity and maleness are present together. In a sense, the nature of Shiva is close to that form of man, in which he lives in Samadhi. All of us know that the strongest Samadhi (meditation) seems to be accompanied by tantric sexual intercourse. Therefore, the only Lord Shiva has been conceptually divisible in the form of Shiva-Parvati that is easy to understand. In fact, Shiva-Parvati is always united as one, but it is also assumed that Shiva-Parvati are always completely absorbed in tantric-sadhana. Shiva lingam is a symbol of this sadhana.

In Russia, a similar folktale is prevalent that a man used to be perfect. From him the king of the gods was scared and he divided the man into two halves. One part is made of man, and one part becomes a woman. From then on, both sides are anxious to be united, so that they can rule over the gods once they are completed again.

Many people may doubt that Shiva is always absorbed in Tantric meditation, then why he has been given this name as kamari? In fact, only a tantric can conquer sex-malice. A man escaping sexuality cannot win sexually ill thought. His desire for sex in him is very strong, of course, he pretends to be untouched from the outside. Only one can win the sexuality, who understands its secret. Nobody can understand the secret of sexuality more than a true tantric.

Bhootnath (lord of ghosts) is also a name given to Lord Shiva, because he is also the master of those tantrics, who seem to be like ghosts from outside. Although from inside they are fulfilled just like Shiva.

Lord Shiva is also called as Bhola (innocent), because he is situated in full Advaita Bhava (non-dual attitude) with the force of his daily Tantric-Sadhana. That is, he is like a child. For him wood, lumber, and gold etc. everything is the same. Although he demonstrates discrimination from outside to live a mundane life-style, not having it inwardly.

I once saw Lord Shiva in my dream. He was sitting at a place like a table-type rock. He looked somewhat quiet though, like a soft, and semi-old Tantric. Together he seemed like a mast man (easy going). Even so, his dress looked like Shiva. Around him, many of the ghosts were dancing, singing with loud, and mast sound. That voice was loud and clear. That particular exhilarating musical voice (especially low pitch beats of the drum) makes me remember that a little today. I was not feeling frightened at all from those ghosts, but I was feeling very happy and a bliss. It seemed that the people who came to know me and were the departed ones also joined the group of those ghosts. My Kundalini got very much power from that automatic incident, and after about one and half a year to two years, she became awakened too.

Likewise, about 30 years ago, I was going with my uncle’s marriage procession. Passing under a big mountain, I saw Lord Shiva sitting in squatting posture in peace on a big rock in the form of a half-old man. There people were offering flowers and leaves, because there was a Shiva-Parvati temple behind the trees and a little above that place, which was not visible from there. I also offered him the leaves, then he gave me something in the form of a gift maybe that was in the form of some grains of rice or he picked up some leaves. I do not remember completely. He was smiling, looking like something serious, in ordinary costumes, and like a softhearted guru. Yet he seemed to be an ordinary man. Then maybe I did not talk to him. Anyway, there was no time to talk about while moving in the long line of people on the tight footpath for early running.

There is no end to the glory of Lord Shiva, but in the form of conclusions it can be said, Shiva is everything; if there is no Shiva, then there is nothing.
