Sex Music Tantra Siddhas a Study.


Hinduism is a religion that flows from Nature and its principles.

It understands the limitations of human nature and suggests ways to realize the Self through and with the help of human senses,limited though they are.

The Universe is complex ,mysterious and billions of years old.

It is not obligated to reveal its secrets to a human being,whose life span,in the Universal scale of Time is not even the wink of eyelids.

Hindu Rishis,Seers, with the help of fundamental principles of Nature devised methods to realize Self.

Broadly speaking,the human psyche has two components,Reason and Emotion.

Ideally,discipling of either of these will lead to Self Realization.

However,in most of us a combination of Reason and Emotion rules the roost,though it is emotion that decides ultimately.

Lord Nataraja.image

Lord Nataraja,King of Dance.

Huma nature is a combination of three dispositions.

Sattva,calm,contented,knowlegeable,

Rajas,active,dynamic and restless and

Tamas,inactive,dull and morose.

It is rare to find one disposition,Guna, in isolation.

The three gunas are present in all of us in varying degrees.

And this composition changes every minute.

For details please read my article on Gunas.

And there are as many dispositions,Gunas as there are individuals.

So there is no standard procedure for all.

However,Rishis have traveled this path and left their experiences for us to have an idea.

Once an individual starts this process through a, Guru,he shall find his unique path and the Guru will help him identify the path.

So it is left to the individual to choose a path,either from the paths shown by the Rishis ,modify it to suit his disposition with the help of the Guru or follow a path intuitively felt and follow it with guidance from the Guru.

At the broader level the Bhakthi yoga,Path of Surrender to God and emotionally connecting to Him.

At the intellectual level one follows Gnana Yoga and Karma yoga.

Raja Yoga suits those of Rajo Guna.

Apart from this,there paths which have sprung from these paths.

These are the results of the Rishis following any of the four Yogas,Gnana,Karma,Bhakthi and Raja.

These systems that have arisen can be classified under two heads.

Strictly speaking there is no differentiation in respect of the result obtained;we classify them thus to understand them better.

These two principles are based on,

Motion and

Reproductive Energy .

Saint Arunagirinathar addresses Lord Subrahmanya thus in Thiruppugazh.

‘Nadha Bindu Kalaathi Namo’

The origin or the One Beyond Motion and Creation’

Bindhu can be translated loosely as Semen.

For Yogis the Semen or the Nadis associated with Semen flows upwards.

When a Soul reverts to its original state,the Semen/nadi flows upwards,

‘Urdhvaredham Viroopaaksham Viswaroopayay Namaha’-Narayna Suktham.

At some point of time when Yoga is being practiced,when a practitioner is advancing,he shall have sexually stimulating visions,especially during Sakthi Upasna and he can advance only if he overcomes the stimulation and direct the flow upwards.

A section of Tantra sastra has practices thatcare associated with Sex.

For details on Tantra,please read my articles.

The other Principle is Motion.

Motion Creates Vibtation and Vibration creates Motion.

We can not determine whether Motion precedes Vibration or it is the other way around.

Vibration is Sound.

Regulated Sound is Music.

Sources of Sound in the Human body is from three sources.

Mouth,’A’,

Throat’U’ and

Pelvis ‘M’

These three letters form OM,the Pranava of Hinduism,the sacred Primordial Sound.

This is the Ultimate Sound and is used in every Mantra of Hinduism.

The Universe is perpetually in motion.

When movement takes place sound emanates.

The sound that emanates from the Sun is OM. (NASA Report)

Music is one source that elevates one to higher levels of Consciousness.

So much so,a Bhakthi Yoga marga based on Music developed in South India,with the Maestros,Thyagaraja,Muthuswamy Dikhitar and Syma Sastrigal in Tamil Nadu,Purandara dasa in Karnataka and Annamacharya in Andhra.

We also have Meera,Jayadeva and Abhang style of Music in Maharashtra.

Carnatic Music of India is basically a Yoga discipline,Nada Yoga.

One can realize Brahman,Reality through Music.

Thiugh iy may offend some sensibilities, Sex also leads to Realization.

But the experience of Reality through Sex is Transient and Tamil philosophy calls it ‘chitrinbam’,limited pleasure.

Realization of Brahman is ‘Perinbam’ Higher, Limitless pleasure,Bliss.

Reason is that though Sex is the only activity whenball the senses are focussed,this focus by all senses is the object of Yoga Darshana.

The drawback in the path of Sex is that one loses the objective and is engrossed in the process.

And emotional attacment before,after and during Sex clouds the mind and bonds one to desires.

Sex act with detachment to pleasure,though one might feel it,leads to Realization.

Hindu scriptures do not consider sex as a sin.

Sex is to be indulged in with the motive of begetting good children and this one of the basic duties of a Gtuhastha Asrama.

So when a Tantric engages in Sex for sex’s sake he falls.

The Siddhas as found in Tamil classics follow the path of Gnana and Bhakthi and have Shiva as the first Siddha.

The tradition of Siddhas from the south differs slighly from the Siddhas of North India.

More to followvin the next post on the differences and the schools of Siddhas,South and North.

Siddha Idol Performs Pooja Itself Meditating Siddha Disappears


 

Siddhars are Realized Souls.

Though there reported to be thousands of them, Eighteen of them are regarded as Primary Siddhas.

The first Siddha is Lord Shiva, whose disciple was Nandeswara and his disciple was Sage   Agastya.

I have wriiten on the Siddhas in detail and on the abodes of Siddhas,especially of Chaturagiri,Tamil Nadu.

Chaturagiri and Kolli hills are said to be inhabited by the Siddhas and are reported to be visible at nights sometimes and on specifc days like the Full Moon.

They perform poojas and there are authentic accounts of poojas being performed by them by people noticing the flowers being found at the feet of the Idol in a temple locked at night.

People have reported hearing the sound of bells in the dead of the night inside the locked Sanctum Sanctorum.

Most of them have been verified and validated.

Siddhas transcend Space Time constraints,both being an instrument and impediment of the Mind.

Please read my articles on Perception, Time non linear and Cyclic.

In our parlance they live eternally.

They can materialize and dematerialize.

I have written an article how a man dematerialized whose hands I was holding.

The Siddhas follow a specific system mainly the Vaasi Yoga.

Kindly read my article Vaasi Yoga is Shiva.

They also have other technics which are trasnsmitted to the spiritually deserving.

In return they ask for nothing.

If one’s desire to meet a Siddha is strong he shall reach the seeker.

The works of the Siddhas is in Tamil language.

I shall provide a complete list shortly.

The language is simple but the inner meaning needs hardwork.

They are also physicians and surgeons.

Trilinga Swamigal who lived in North India was also present in south India as Kuzhandai Swamigal with whom my father and aunt were closely in touch.

Kuzhandai Swamigal was in south India,spent most of his time in Madurai.

I have recorded some facts known to my family.

6f42db7c143e4e384875f80fd65d65d52

They lived in their mortal frames during late eighteenth and early nineteenth century.

Even today there are reports of these Siddhas performing poojas in Chaturagiri and Kolli Malai.

There are caves in these regions and Siddhas perform poojas, not only for Gods,especially Shiva but perform poojas for the other Siddhas.

One such pooja was conducted by a Siddha to Siddha Korakkar.

In the following video by Zee Tamil as a part of Investigative Journalism a man, obviously a Siddha performing pooja to Siddha Korakkar.

He sits and meditates.

Garland moves on its own and adorns Korakka.

Flowers fall at his feet while the Siddha performing the pooja is away from the Flowers.

The cave resonates with OM.

The camphor lights on its own.

And once the Siddha completes his meditation,and raises both his hands in prayer to Korakkar, the Siddha who has been meditating and raising hands dematerialized.

This has been captured in Video by Zee Tamil in their serial Naminaal Nambungal, Belive it It or Not.

Watch the Video.

Shiva Means Vaasi Yoga Of Thirumoolar


The treasures of  Sanatan Dharma is so rich and huge one may not even touch its periphery in one’s Lifetime

If one were to give up linguistic and regional bias, one may unearth these treasures.

I have in many of my posts written on the myth of Tamil and Sanatana Dharma being inimical to each other

They complement each other

Siva.jpg

Lord Shiva.

If one were to read the Vedic texts and ancient Tamil Texts one may notice the following points

1.Shiva is not directly mentioned in the Vedas nor do we find any sukthas ascribed/devoted to Him.His name appears in Sri Rudram, Rudra being an amsa of Shiva and not Shiva in His full Glory

2.Other Gods,Narayna, Vishnu,Varuna, Indra,Agni,Vaayu,Durga, Lakshmi and a Host of others are mentioned in the Vedas

3.Ancient Tamil Spiritual texts mention the following  Deities and the earliest Grammar work Tholkaapiyam assigns the territories in which they are the Chief Gods.

A).Kurinji,mountainous terrain, Chief Deity is, Cheyon(means The son)  called Murugan , that is Subrahmanya  . Interestingly Vedas do not mention Subrahmanya directly.

B)Mullai, Pastoral lands, the Chief Deity is Maayaon, Vishnu.Maayon means Illusionist, one who creates the Yoga maaya .This is in keeping with the. description of Vishnu in Vedas and the Puranas.

C).Marutham, Paddy fields/arable lands, Chief Deity is Indra..

D)Neydhal, Sea and adjoining areas , Chief Deity is Varuna and

E)Paalai, Desert Region, Chief Deity is Durga, called Kotravai in Tamil.

Even in Tamil, which is believed to have been founded by Lord Shiva,He is not assigned a Region in the manner described above

4.The Yoga system of the Vedic system is by Patanjali.

5.Patanjali is a disciple of Shiva along with Sage Agastya and Bhogar according to Tamil Classics

6.The Yoga  developed Thirumoolar, meaning The auspicious first in his Thirumandiram is different from Patanjali’s Yoga Sutra.

7.Yoga developed by Agastya follows Thirumoolar and is different from Patanjali’s.

The meaning Shiva in Sanskrit is Auspiciousness. Mangalam.

No other meaning is assigned to this word.

In Tamil the etymology is slightly different..

Shiva is from Vaa Si.

Vaasi when repeated in quick succession becomes Siva!

வாசி வாசி என்று வாசித்த தமிழ் இன்று
சிவா சிவா என சிந்தை தனில் நின்று
அவாவினால் இந்த ஒளவைத் தமிழ் கொண்டு
கவிபாடினான் உன்னைக் கண் குளிரக் கண்டு!

 

Listen to this’ for Vaasi becoming Shiva,

Now Vaasi is a special type of Yoga.

It is different from the Yoga of Patanjali.

It is by Thirumoolar and foll0wed by Sage Agastya.

 

Vaasi yoga (vasi yoga) is a form of yoga that concentrates on the breath naadi (nadi), the cycle of the distribution of oxygen throughout the body, that occurs as part of the breathing process. Indian philosophy describes prana (life force) as flowing in channels called naadis. Vaasi yoga attempts to heal the body and sprirt by cleansing the breath naadi, and thus prepare for balance, true consciousness of self and then enlightenment. As such it is one of the kaya kalpa, the class of ancient yogic rejuvenation therapies. As a yogic practice it is an art of living taught by siddhars for over 3000 years ago, as initiated by Lord Shiva. Like other advanced types of yoga which should be practiced only under the guidance of Guru. Vaasi yoga is practiced by very few.

Vaasi yogam is the attainment of consciousness about the silent sound in our breath. To attain this consciousness, the body should be devoid of any waste. To remove all the waste from one’s body, one should be taught with asanas by a guru who should be in a position to analyze the naadi functionality of one’s body. A guru who has the capacity to analyze the naadi functionality is called Siva Sithan.’

Vaasi is not Nadi.

It is the mental flow of Breath .

In Patanjali’s Yoga one regulates  the Physical Breath.

In Vaasi One controls the Mental Breath…

There has been lot of reference of this yoga to kriya yoga or kundalini prayanama (Yogic Breathing to increase the pranic energy). But all of the above practices are being followed or taught, without empowering the body to practice it. In other words, when the physique is not devoid of waste and when one with such a physique, practices any kind of yoga or breathing techniques, it will only aggravate the body conditions due to the heat or agni produced. All other kinds of yoga do not tend to remove the waste from the body, instead only rise the body temperature and increase the appetite. But in Vaasi yoga, food intake gets controlled automatically and one can control the appetite for food casually.

 

Our body cells need oxygen derived from air. There are some definite paths for oxygen to reach the cells and to go out of cells. These paths have some energy centres. These centres control the organs and their functions. This pattern, this throb, which is called ‘Naadi’ in Tamil, differs from person to person. The pulse beat should be not taken for ‘Naadi’. For a healthy living the Naadi has to function properly and be fully active. The imbalance in the Naadi functionality is the root cause of all ailments and diseases. By practicing Vaasi Yoga Naadi functionality gets strengthened and healthy living is achieved. Vaasi Yoga is a technique to breath. The yogis who are expert in vaasi yoga avoids breathing through normal nostrils. But they exhale the air upward towards kapala (Brain). This strengthens the brain and give brightness to face and whole body too. Siddhar Shiva vaakiyar (Tamilnadu) has narrated the secret of Vaasi yoga and its benefit.

 

Vaasi Yoga has unique nature of attaining the consciousness of the Self, by the following stages.

  1. Analysis of Nadi functionality – Guru must have the capacity to identify the imbalance between the 3 Nadis’ Idakalai, Pingalai and Sulumunai. The reason being, each individual is unique in nature and the functioning of the body will vary due to the imbalance in these 3 Nadis. The body temperature might be different for every individual based on Vatham, Pitham and Kabam. Hence, that has to be brought under control to a stable level before practicing any kind of yoga .
  2. Asanas to empower body – Based on the above analysis, Guru must have the capacity to teach breathing techniques and asanas to bring the body and breath to a stable condition devoid of any waste. During this period 5 kinds of waste disposal happens. Motion, urine, sweat, mucous and gas. This will happen for minimum of 3 months. Only at the end of 3 months with devoid of all the waste from the body, the breath will be in control. Only when breath is under control, Vaasi can act upon us.
  3. Realizing self – Only through Vaasi Yoga, one can attain the consciousness of the true Self. Another benefit of Vaasi yoga is being younger in appearance. Because Vaasi yoga will burn out all the waste in our body and will only look leaner and younger without any excess muscles in our body . This is the reason why Siddhars lived for years together.

Vaasi Yoga practice simulates two special hormones 1. Seratonin 2. Melatonin.

These two hormones ultimately stabilize all the working systems in our body.’

The term Shiva from a process of a Yogic system,Vaasi Yoga, that Shiva is termed as Adi Guru, the First Siddha, and Dakshinamoorthy as a Preceptor , embodying Silence and Vaasi Yoga being the regulation of the silent Nadi lends to the view that Shiva was a  human being and became a Realized Soul .

The term Sat Chit and Ananda is the description of the Reality,Brahman as descried in the Vedas.

The term Sachidanda is used for Only Shiva.

And Consciousness is elevated to Realization by Vaasi Yoga.

I am providing some basic details of Vassi Yoga.

Do Not Attempt to Practice without Initiation from a Guru.

Practicing without initiation by a Guru may prove to be serious and at times Fatal.

 

t’s incredibly difficult to do vasi yoga in day to day life for common people. It’s not so easy to get initiated from the available real guru who is doing vasi yoga for several years with concealed achievements. To find out these types of yogic people is very difficult. Most of the people stay with families and kids. They never disclose to the public view. They will identify the eligible people and give it to their hands with chain reactions and initiation.  They know it’s very complicated to achieve the first stage of perception with lot of obstacles when a person starts the vasi yoga. Once after initiation of vasi yoga, yogi should be very careful on the day to day life, it makes you down until unless yogi follows the traditional rules and regulations.

I have seen number of persons who had initiated and immediately met accidents with severe injuries and wind up the vasi yoga once stuck up with numerous family problems and other life hands down. It’s a force of accumulation and higher energy level was created manually by vasi yogis in the beginning stages. If the physical body is healthy, it did not make much difference on the physical health. They may face the heart pumping problems or running of lungs operations may vary. This is due to the hunting of heart pumps when the meditation slows down the alpha emit when the kundlini raises from the lower level.

Emission starts slowly when yogic practices are gradually trending to the upper level of consciousness which comes out from the yogis when they start the real meditations. It’s spread out from the room and extends physically to the external level, how yogi meditates or the level of attaining the universal spot in the human body. Fission and fusion takes place in the internal way of flow once starts the vasi yoga. Here don’t take it as atomic theories. A yogi comes to know gradually they might have connected with an atom which spreads over the object in and around them. Here the subject is disappeared, so the image starts the process and flow along the vasi every time, mostly all the time, round the clock.

It never makes difference between the deep sleep and a person on awake with consciousness. They feel to do yoga almost every time, alone, loneliness, facing difficulties when it’s raised up from the mooladhara. Then it starts works itelf constantly along the flow line of vasi from the bottom to top. It never changes the position and flow line. Where ever yogi wants to hold the vasi line, he makes it hampered and activate the chakra to open the vision and subject became spectator. Subject may deviate here. I bring to an end here.

 

‘Vasi yoga is the knack of breathing that allows one to simply transcend mind and in the process burn karma and vasanas (tendencies). Once karma and vasanas are burnt the soul is not different from the eternal truth, Brahmam.

Question: Are Vasi yoga and Siddha yoga one and the same?

Answer: Siddha yoga, Gathagatham, Kriya yoga are some of the other names given to Vasi yogam by different teachers. By whatever name it is known, the system is one and the same with some frills here and there at times. The method and practice is the same ultimately. It is about the secret of inner breath.

Question: Who found this system first and taught this?

Answer: It is said, LORD KRISHNA taught VASI YOGA. All Siddhas follow this system only.

  • I do not find evidence of Krishna Teaching Vaasi Yoga.Question: Is it ‘pranayama’?

    Answer: No! It is not the regular pranayama. In Hatayoga , Pranayama is associated with external breathing and methods of controlling it. Vasi is the ‘inner breath’ DISTINCT from the normal inhalation and exhalation of air through the nostrils. The knowledge and control of the inner breath is vasi yoga.

    Question: Can you explain how I should begin practicing it?

    Answer: No! It cannot be imparted online nor can it be learnt by reading a book. The aspirant should learn it in the physical presence of the teacher.

    Question: Can you please explain a little more about beginning the process?

    Answer: The ‘Gathi’ or the inner breath which is in a dormant state in all unenlightened human beings will be activated by the Sathguru through the teacher. The disciple is made aware of the inner breath and its path. There begins the journey of the disciple towards God. The Master will be with the aspirant until he/she reaches his/her final goal.

  • The verses of Bogar are given below for easy understanding on the practices of vasi yoga. Bogar has written evidently the practice of vasi yoga for the eligible person who does the karma in this birth. Verses elaborate yogi should not go beyond the mooladhara. Here mooladhara is quoted for ground reference for detailed explanation by mahayogi bogar. A verse says the kundlini lift up from the mooladhara and goes to the hole where it has closed for number of births. If unable to do, then nandhi will come in front of you and initiate you. Nandhi as described indirectly for yoga practices. Nandhi is located in front of lord shiva temples. Nandi mostly close the state of shiva and makes it’s unable to see the god from outside the temple. Here it’s indirectly described that nandhi comes and help you. When nandhi crosses and deviate the direction, Yogi can get the eight types of siddhis, supreme magical powers before attaining the god shiva. Don’t stay there for long time at this place, shift over in front of nandhi, and blow it continuously so that you can see the god in front of your eyes. The eyebrow opens the screens and shows in front of your real eyes, the appearance of Manonmaniyal, goddess. It’s a trap; yogis should not stay with this appearance of goddess.உழலாதே ஊணியடி மூலத்துள்ளே

    உறுத்தியே நந்திதனில் ஊதிஏறு

    நழலாதே நந்திவந்து உபதேசிப்பார்

    நலமாகும் எட்டெட்டுச் சித்திஎல்லாம்

    புழலாதே வாசிகொண்டு ஊதி ஊதி

    புருமையத் தேநின்று புகழ்ந்துபாரு

    வழலாதே வராட்டியனைத் தாண்டிநின்று

    வழியோடே சென்றேறி மனோன்மணியேகாணே

    Bogar

    The verses of Bogar given below indicate particularly on the running of vasi in yogis. Yogis can Suck all the vasi when he raises the kunlini and maintain it on the particular way of built, then its starts to show the dances of nataraja. If the built of vasi from the stream line starts parallel travel through vertical position from top to bottom, there will be development of sounds which is used to hear in the musical stages. Suddenly it inserts into the point of traverse from the vasi and intrudes into the thousand petals of hole and broke out from the humans and spread out in the universe.

    நாடுமிறந் தோடியே நமனுக்கெய்ப்பார்

    நலமான வாசிநிறைந் துள்ளேவாங்கில்

    ஆடுதிரு நடனமும் பலமும்காணும்

    ஆட்டினது குறிப்புத்தான் மேலோகீழோ

    நாடுமூலா தாராசபை தொந்தோம்என்று

    நாட்டியே தலமாறும் உருகிச்சுழிஊடே

    பூடுகபாலம் புகுந்து குருபதத்தின்மேவிப்

    புகுந்தமண்டலத்து இதழ்தான் ஆயிரத்துஎட்டே

     Bogar

    The verses below describes how the yogis to perform the vasi yoga. He should not have lust of fire on women, should not follow the ethics and rituals, not to fall on controversies and arguments, stay like a dumb and watch the programs around, avoid the lies, use the vaasi to uplift the practices, its drowse you and it makes you to prepare the solution as symptoms, don’t go beyond the tricky visions.

    அயிக்கியமாய் விழாதேநீ காமத்தீயில்

    அனுதினமும் வேதாந்த முடிவைப்பாராய்

    ஒயிக்கியமாய் ஒருவருடன் வாயாடாதே

    ஊமைபோல் இருந்துஉன்னி உன்னிப்பாரு

    தியக்கமாய்ப் பொய்கொலைகள் செய்திடாதே

    சேர்ந்தேறு வாசிஎன்ற தேசிதன்னில்

    மயக்கமாய் வத்துவைநீ பானம்பண்ணி

    மதத்தாலே அழியாதே மாயைநீக்கே

    Bogar

    Taken from the fire ashes to drink the fluid as considered as alcohol, make it in the format of stream line of yogic practices, have the herbs, avoid the dust particles, clean the solid, it tends to glow the eyes, go to the next stage and clean the semi liquid hanging on the door, closes the five senses and use the knife to cut it, don’t forget to do vasi yoga night and day

    மூட்டியே மதுஉண்ணு கற்பம்உண்ணு

    மூதண்ட காயத்தைச் சித்திபண்ணு

    காட்டியே கனத்த மூலிகையைஉண்ணு

    கசடுஅற்று குஞ்சனத்தில் கண்ஒளிதான்மீரும்

    அடுக்காறு தளத்திலுள்ள ஆமம்நீக்கு

    வாட்டியே அய்ம்புலனை வாளால்வீசு

    மறவாதே இரவுபகல் வாசிமாட்டே

    Bogar

    Agasthiyar discloses the practice of vasi yoga transparently; always bring the vasi in to resagam, pooragam. These two words indirectly indicate the flow direction of breath into left and right. Also indicates the yogi should stand with vasi in this flow direction. When the vasi begins, then there will be possibility of pseudo actions starts itself into the tricky vision and it lead to dreams. Yogi should not fall into that way of dreams, it’s a tricky path, nature doesn’t allow yogis to come into original path, it diverts. So yogi should stand with vasi along with shravana. It should not taken here as lord muruga, the subramaniyar. It’s a code word here for vasi. Yogi should bring the vasi into centre line of travel so that he can lock the door with the vasi knot after it opens.

    நிற்கையிலே ரேசக பூரகமுங்கொண்டு

    நிகட்சியுடன் வாசியோகந் தன்னில்நின்று

    சொற்பனமாம் சாத்தியங்கள் சுழுத்தியிலேகொண்டு

    தோறாமல் கலைதனையே இறுக்கிமாட்டி

    அற்பமுடன் மதியமுர்தக் கலையில்நின்று

    அப்பனே சிராவண பதத்தில் நின்று

    துற்பரவாய் மையநிலை மதியங்கொண்டு

    துரத்தியே வாசியென்ற கயிறைப்பூட்டே

                                             Agasthiyar

    Mahayogi Nandheeswar explains about vasi and compared with the control of breath. Verses say a yogi should keep it on the travel and hold the breath along with vasi. It traverses to left hand side of the yogi. Hence, yogi locates the line of direction and changes into right hand side of the vasi, and then observes from the left hand side of the breath. After some years, he can hold the sun and activated the vasi. Sun here represents as control of right hand breath. Then practice in to flow of direction from left to right hand side of the running breaths.

    வையடா பூரணத்தைக் கும்பகத்தில் வைத்து

    வளமான வாசியைத் தானொரு மனதாய்க் கட்டி

    கையடா பிங்கலையால் கும்பகத்தில் வைத்துக்

    கண்மணியே யிடைகலை வாங்கு வாங்கு

    மையடா விவ்விதமாய் வருஷங்கும்பி

    மகத்தான சூரியன்தான் வசியமாவான்

    அய்யடா விடைகலையிற் பூரகத்தில் நாட்டி

    அப்பனே பிங்கலையால் மெதுவாய் வாங்கே

    Nandheesar

    Matchamuni Naayanar describes the goddess Vaalai in the beginning point. Verses say that yogi should worship vaalai, the goddess throughout day and night with concentration and surrender; he can achieve everything without any disruption. Verses says after completion of vaalai worship then make self to make Om kept in the centre and worship the lord shiva, the nine mantras around the ohm represents here as lord shiva. Take the light and glow along the vasi and work out daily without any obstruction, it leads to appearance of lord shiva and yogi himself appear as lord shiva.

    வாலையைக் கண்டு வணங்கி நீ மைந்தா

Bhogar Explains Gayatri Mantra New Approach


The interpretation of the Gayatri Mantra depends on one’s spiritual status and his enlightenment level.

I have written a few articles on the meaning of the Gayatri Mantra, including the explanation by Adi Shankaracharya.

The interpretation  depends on one’s system of Philosophy/Faith.

Whatever the interpretation  is the core meaning and the power of Gayatri remains unchanged.

Siddhas are Realized souls who are timeless.

Gayatri Mantra.jpg

The Gayatri Mantra.

Their interpretation of the Gayatri Mantra provides a different and novel Perspective.

One might notice that no deity is mentioned in the Gayatri mantra.

This is like the Ganesha Mantra,

suklambratharam vishnum sasi varnam chatur bhujam,

prasanna vadnam dhyayeeth sarva vignopasanthaye.

The term Vishnu means the one who supports.

Siddhas refer to Reality the Brahman as Nirguna, Without Attributes.

And the mention Siva  mostly in the sense of attribute-less reality as auspicious.

Siva means auspiciousness.

An interesting explanation of the Gayatri Mantra is provided by Bhogar,a Siddha on par with sage Agastya.

He occupies the second list of Siddhas after Siva and is among the top of the eighteen Sidddhas.

Bhogar explains,

The sound ‘o’ expanded by an explosion into the sounds of ‘A’,’U’ and ‘M’

These three sound became the Motion.

This in turn expanded into the Five Elements,

Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Ether.

These in turn combined to form four different wombs and seven births.

This expands as the Universe.

This power is in many Forms

This Power Impels our Mind to function.

Let us Pray to Light the most potent of this Power .

Seven births indicate the number of births one has to undergo.

As to four wombs (Yonis) one explanation can be the three genders,Male, Female and Neuter.

In this case what does Bhogar indicate?

The other explanation is the essence of Saiva Siddhantha.

Pasu, ( Jivatma, individual soul)

Pathi (Paramatma, the Brahman, Universal Soul without Attributes.

Paasam, the bond akin to Maya/Avidya of Advaita.

I am trying to get clarification on this

 

‘ஓ என்ற புள்ளியாகிய இறைவன் ஓம் என்ற பிரணவமாக பெரு வெடிப்பானான் . இந்த பிரணவம் அகார உகார மகார என்ற சக்தியாக விரிவானது . இந்த ஓங்காரம் விரிவடைந்து அகார உகார , மகர நாத விந்து சக்தியானது . . இது பஞ்ச வித்தாக , பஞ்ச பூதமாக விரிவானது . பஞ்ச பூதங்கள் நால்வகை யோனி எழுவகை பிறப்பாக இப்பிர பஞ்சமாக விரிவானது . இந்த பஞ்சபூத இறை சக்தி நமது புத்தியை செயல் படவைக்கிறது. இந்த இறை சக்தி பல வடிவாக இந்த பிரபஞ்சதில் உள்ளது அவற்றுள் மிக சிறந்த வடிவான ஒளி வடிவத்தில் இறைவனை தியானிப்போம் . இந்த விளக்கத்தில் காயத்திரியும் இல்லை சூரியனும் இல்லை

Rishis Siddhas A Comparison


The similarities and differences  between the Rishis and the Siddhars are very striking and also very difficult to notice, though this sounds paradoxical.

Both are Realized souls.

Both have recorded their experiences with Godhood in the form of Mantras by the Rishis and by Poems by the Siddhars.

6f42db7c143e4e384875f80fd65d65d51

 The 18 sidddhas

Both have established Guru Sishya Lineage.

Both have their Idols installed in temples, though they are limited in Number.

Both were devoted to the welfare of the Mankind.

Both transcend Time and Space.

Differences.

While only seven Rishis are reported to be be beyond Space , Time and live forever, all the Siddhars are Timeless.

All Siddhars were/are followers of Sanatna Dharma Vedas and a unique system developed by them, The Siddha system, while the Rishis  followed on only Sanatna Dharma.

Vasishta, Viswamitra, Agstya are some exceptions.

Siddhars seem to have worshiped only shiva while the Rishis all the Gods.

Though some siddhars like Bhogar worshiped Goddess Bhuvaneswari, Agastya Ganesha, Subrahmanya.

The Siddhars worshiped reality, Nirguna Brahman as sound.light and as Saguna Brahman Lord Shiva.

Most of the Siddhars are from the South of Vindhyas though there are references that the North Indian Guru Parampara came from the Siddhas.

Please read my articles on this.

The Rishis, Seekers of Truth

Rishis of India

The Siddhas expressed themselves in Tamil while the Rishis in Sanskrit.

Some Rishis have been advisers to Kings, like Vasishta, no Siddha is associated as an adviser to King.

All Siddhas have been Rishis while not all Rishis were Siddhas.

The Yoga system by the Siddhas is slightly different from the one By Patanjali in Sanskrit, though Patanjali is from South and a Siddha.

Siddhas have developed alternate system of medicine based on hers found in the South, the Rishis , based on the herbs found in the North.

Mahavatar Babaji Is Nagarajan Parangipettai


Vedas are the signposts informing people about the route to be taken by one who wants to realise the Fundamental Cause, The Reality, the Brahman.

This can be only through experience and not by logic alone.

Logic is to be used to reinforce Faith, not to destroy it.

Logic can take only a few steps, while experience with honest Logic can take you places.

What is Honest logic?

The Logic that tells you that Logic ends here and only experience alone can take you further.

This is done by the Vedas.

The Vedas were not written by any one.

They are the experiences of great realized souls and as such contain gems of Truth.

As with experiences, they are varied.

People react differently to experiences.

The impression en experience leaves on one differs from the other.

Some times the same experience might leave different impression at different times.

And our grasp of, reaction to Experience is determined by Disposition.

So the though the Truth is One, the Perspectives are Many.

All are correct.

For, each perspective is unique.

Therefore the Path to God is varied.

The experiences are given in the Vedas, and other Texts of Hinduism, Sanatana Dharma.

Each experience is unique.

They are expressions of experiences which ae, as I said earlier, by Dispositions.

One might like to be busy, work.

Another emotional.

Yet another highly intellectually disposed.

To suit these dispositions there are three various Paths in Hinduism.

Broadly classified as,

Gnyana Yoga, the Path of Knowledge.

Karma Yoga, Path of Action,

Bhakthi Yoga, Path of Surrender,Bhakti,Love to God,

Raja Yoga, Path of Mind Regulation.

There are two systems in Raja Yoga.

One is Yoga by Patanjali and another is by Thirumoolar.

Though essentially they are the same, minor differences in application may be noticed.

Then we have Siddhas, both from the South and North of Vindhyas in India.

Generally these Siddhas of the North follow Patanjali, and in South the Siddhas follow Agastya, Bhogar.

Patanjali is reported to be a disciple of Bhogar.

For all the First Siddha is Shiva.Shiva

Of the Siddhas of from the Himalayas, Kriya yogi Mahavtar Babaji is well-known.

But some basic details, most of us are unaware of.

It is presumed that He is from the North of Vindhyas,possibly from Himalayas.

Though it is incorrect to assign geographically limit these realized Souls, I am providing some information for the records,

Mahavatar Babaji (IAST: Mahāvatār Bābājī) is the name given to an Indian saint and yogi by Lahiri Mahasaya and several of his disciples[2] who met Mahavatar Babaji between 1861 and 1935. Some of these meetings were described by Paramahansa Yogananda in his book Autobiography of a Yogi, including a first hand telling of Yogananda’s own meeting with Mahavatar Babaji.[3]Another first hand account was given by Yukteswar Giri in his book The Holy Science.All of these accounts, along with additional meetings with Mahavatar Babaji, are described in various biographies of those mentioned by Yogananda.

..There are very few accounts of Babaji’s childhood, one source of information is the book Babaji and the 18 Siddha Kriya Yoga tradition by Marshall Govindan. According to Govindan, Babaji was named Nagarajan (king of serpents) by his parents. V.T. Neelakantan and S.A.A. Ramaiah founded on 17 October 1952, (they claim – at the request of Babaji) a new organisation, “Kriya Babaji Sangah,” dedicated to the teaching of Babaji’s Kriya Yoga. They claim that in 1953 Mahavatar Babaji told them that he had been born on 30 November 203 CE in a small coastal village now known as Parangipettai, in Tamil Nadu, India. Babaji’s Kriya Yoga Order of Acharyas Trust (Kriya Babaji Sangah) and their branch organisations claim his place and date of birth.He was a disciple of Bogar and his birth name is Nagarajan’

South North Siddhas Misinformation.Correct List


I would call it criminal to assign Religion,Region, Caste, and language to Siddhas and Yogis.

This is exactly what has happened in india regarding Siddhars.

We have Tamil Siddhars,North indian Siddhas,Maha Purusha, Yogins of North India,Yogis of South india,Islamic Siddhars et al.

Siddas are Realized Souls, who transcend Time and Space.

They have no religion , caste , creed and do not belong to any one specifically but to Humanity.

This business of categorising them was stated by the Britishers as a part of dismantling Hinduism.

I have a few Posts on this issue.

The Missionaries in their effort to demolish Sanatana Dharam assumed Indian/Hindu Identities beginning with Robert De Nobili in Tamil Nadu.

They infiltrated into Hinduism under the garb of embracing it,learnt the local languages and Sanskrit , misinterpreted,misinformed, created forgeries of Hindu Literature ,apart from producing Christian literature modled afer Hindu Texts.

Thus they call the Bible as Vedaagamam. have even Jesus Sahasra nama!

These interpolations have resulted in the pollution of Indian Texts.

They have not spared even the Vedas, with Max Mueller leading the pack

Please check out my Post on Max Muller the Fraud’s quotes.

As it is Sanatana Dharma Texts do not have a written tradition.

They are transmitted orally.

So when some one embraces your Religion, pretend respect for it and prepares a written of these texts, people tend to take it as the Truth.

This is what happened to Hinduism and specifically to the Treasures of Siddhas.

Even to-day a Siddha  is considered by many as charlatans!

How does one correct this?

By producing the original records from the Oral Tradition.

I am trying to do this.

Eightty four Siddhas.jpg Charurasi Siddhas.

I must admit I have posted a few articles on Tamil Siddhars,North Indian Siddhas List ,guilty of the accusation I am making of these interpolators.

I have given these titles because people would read and understand only these terms as they have been fed on this.

Now to the Truth.

A Siddha is one who has transcended Citta.

Chitta is higher than Intellect.

Activity of he Brain in Mind.

Direction of the Mind is by the Intellect.

Chitta is on a Higher plane than Intellect, Buddhi.

Please refer my Posts on Yoga Sutras.

Patanjali defines Yoga as the cessation of the modifications of Chitta,

Yogaha, Chitta Vrutti Nirodhah.

Sidhhars are people who have transcended the Chitta and as such are were caled Chittas.

Also there are eight special powers come on the way to Self Realization.

They are Eight in number, called Ashtama Siddhis.

Please refer my post for more details.

The Siddhas, having realized the self , have transcended even these Siddhis.

That is also a reason why they are called Siddas.

So any realized Soul who meets this criteria is a Siddha.

How does one identify a Siddha?

I shall be posting on this shortly.

Hence there is no caste,creed,for the  Siddhas.

They are reported to be Timeless .

They can speak in any language.

For some reason they choose a particular language, Tamil, Hindi, Sanskrit and others.

That does not mean they  belong to one group.

And there is this seed sown by the west.

Some Siddhas have attained Realization by following Buddhism, especially Mahayana.

So they are shown as a distinct group.

This is incorrect.

A Siddha is a Siddha whether he followed Hinduism or Buddhism.

Please read my Posts on Siddhas, Siddhas of North India Guru Parampara,Bhogar to get a complete picture of Indian Siddhas

Abhayadatta Sri is an Indian scholar of the 12th century who is attributed with recording the hagiographies of the eighty-four siddha in a text known as The History of the Eighty-four Mahasiddha (Sanskrit: Caturasitisiddha pravrtti; Wylie: grub thob brgyad bcu tsa bzhi’i lo rgyus).

Dowman holds that the eighty-four Mahasiddha are spiritual archetypes:

The number eighty-four is a “whole” or “perfect” number. Thus the eighty-four siddhas can be seen as archetypes representing the thousands of exemplars and adepts of the tantric way. The siddhas were remarkable for the diversity of their family backgrounds and the dissimilarity of their social roles. They were found in every reach of the social structure: kings and ministers, priests and yogins, poets and musicians, craftsmen and farmers, housewives and whores.[2]

Reynolds (2007) states that the mahasiddha tradition “evolved in North India in the early Medieval Period (3–13 cen. CE). Philosophically this movement was based on the insights revealed in the Mahayana Sutras and as systematized in the Madhyamaka and Chittamatrin schools of philosophy, but the methods of meditation and practice were radically different than anything seen in the monasteries.[3] He proffers that the mahasiddha tradition “broke with the conventions of Buddhist monastic life of the time, and abandoning the monastery they practiced in the caves, the forests, and the country villages of Northern India. In complete contrast to the settled monastic establishment of their day, which concentrated the Buddhist intelligenzia [sic.] in a limited number of large monastic universities, they adopted the life-style of itinerant mendicants, much as the wandering Sadhus of modern India.”[3]

The charnel ground conveys how great mahasiddhas in the Nath and Vajrayana traditions such as Tilopa (988–1069) and Gorakshanath (fl. 11th – 12th century) yoked adversity to till the soil of the path and accomplish the fruit, the “ground” (Sanskrit: āśraya; Wylie: gzhi) of realization:[4]

The charnel ground is not merely the hermitage; it can also be discovered or revealed in completely terrifying mundane environments where practitioners find themselves desperate and depressed, where conventional worldly aspirations have become devastated by grim reality. This is demonstrated in the sacred biographies of the great siddhas of the Vajrayāna tradition. Tilopa attained realization as a grinder of sesame seeds and a procurer for a prominent prostitute. Sarvabhakṣa was an extremely obese glutton, Gorakṣa was a cowherd in remote climes, Taṅtepa was addicted to gambling, and Kumbharipa was a destitute potter. These circumstances were charnel grounds because they were despised in Indian society and the siddhas were viewed as failures, marginal and defiled.

…..

The Caturasiti-siddha-pravrtti (CSP), “The Lives of the Eighty-four Siddhas”, compiled by Abhayadatta Sri, a Northern Indian Sanskrit text dating from the 11th or 12th century, comes from a tradition prevalent in the ancient city-state of Campa in the modern district of Bihar. Only Tibetan translations of this Sanskrit text seem to have survived. This text was translated into Tibetan by sMon grub Shes rab and is known as the Grub thob brgyad cu rtsa bzhi’i lo rgyus or “The Legends of the Eighty-four Siddhas”. It has been suggested that Abhayadatta Sri is identical with the great Indian scholar Mahapandita Abhayakaragupta (late 11th–early 12th century), the compiler of the iconographic compendiums Vajravali, Nispannayogavali, and Jyotirmanjari.

The other major Tibetan tradition is based on the list contained in the Caturasiti-siddhabhyarthana (CSA) by Ratnakaragupta of Vajrasana, identical with Bodhgaya (Tib.: rDo rje gdan) located in Bihar, Northern India. The Tibetan translation is known as Grub thob brgyad cu rtsa bzhi’i gsol ’debs by rDo rje gdan pa. There exist several Tibetan versions of the list of mahasiddhas based on the Vajrasana text. However, these Tibetan texts differ in many cases with regard to the Tibetan transcriptions of the Indian mahasiddhas names.

By convention there are eighty-four Mahasiddhas in both Hindu and Tibetan Buddhist traditions, with some overlap between the two lists. The number is congruent with the number of siddhi or occult powers held in the Indian Religions. In Tibetan Buddhist art they are often depicted together as a matched set in works such as thangka paintings where they may be used collectively as border decorations around a central figure.

Each Mahasiddha has come to be known for certain characteristics and teachings, which facilitates their pedagogical use. One of the most beloved Mahasiddhas is Virupa, who may be taken as the patron saint of the Sakyapa sect and instituted the Lamdré (Tibetan: lam ‘bras) teachings. Virupa (alternate orthographies: Birwapa/Birupa) lived in 9th century India and was known for his great attainments.

Some of the methods and practices of the Mahasiddha were codified in Buddhist scriptures known as Tantras. Traditionally the ultimate source of these methods and practices is held to be the historical Buddha Shakyamuni, but often it is a transhistorical aspect of the Buddha or deity Vajradhara or Samantabhadra who reveals the Tantra in question directly to the Mahasiddha in a vision or whilst they dream or are in a trance. This form of the deity is known as a sambhogakaya manifestation. The sadhana of Dream Yoga as practiced in Dzogchen traditions such as the Kham, entered the Himalayan tantric tradition from the Mahasiddha, Ngagpa and Bonpo. Dream Yoga or “Milam” (T:rmi-lam; S:svapnadarśana), is one of the Six Yogas of Naropa.[citation needed]

Four of the eighty-four Mahasiddhas are women.[9] They are:

  • Manibhadra, the Perfect Wife
  • Lakshmincara, The Princess of Crazy wisdom
  • Mekhala, the elder of the 2 Headless Sisters
  • Kanakhala, the younger of the 2 Headless Sisters.
