“Tantra is the transformation of fearful love into fearless love.”

Shrii Shrii Anandamurti

 

“The glory of one and only One benign entity will shine forth to you from one and all objects.”

Shrii Shrii Anandamurti

Tantra is yoga and yoga is tantra.  Both are derived from the teachings of Shiva, a great man who lived approximately 7,000 years ago.  Tantra adds to yogic practices the element of devotion and love.  When a drop of milk falls into the ocean of milk and becomes one with it, losing its identity as a single drop and assuming the identity of the whole, this is yoga, the ultimate union.

To know this observable world as the infinite Supreme Entity is the goal of tantra and yoga.

Two yogis went to the guru to ask how many lives they had left before the final union.  The first asked and the guru said, “you have two lives left,” the yogi was devastated, “Oh no, I can’t wait,” the second one asked and the guru said,  “you have as many lives as that tree has leaves” (tree is full of leaves), yogi jumps for joy, “how wonderful, that I have so many lives left to enjoy this world,” suddenly all the leaves fell off the tree!

I believe that peace and a serene state of mind are within the reach of every human being.  How many lives we have left is not the point.  The point is, are we living in the fullness of the present, relishing each moment, enjoying this life to the fullest?  There are  techniques designed by saints and sages which effectively still the mind and take us to that point.

The Guru says, “Think, reflect and meditate deeply and constantly; you will know the Truth.
