For those ready to embark on the Power Level of the Tantric Path, we invite you into Healing The Sacred Masculine.
Usually, students undertake this program after completing the Mastery of Mantra Level and Healing The Divine Feminine. However, we do not insist that you complete these programs before studying Healing The Sacred Masculine, for this is designed to be a healing process.
The culmination of this program is chanting the first anuvaka of the Rudram, a rather formidable mantric text from the Vedas while performing a healing ritual built around the sacred masculine experience.
We do not begin, however, with the Rudram. Instead, we start with mantras of initiation that you learn together with mudras and meditation practices to tap into the direct experience of the sacred masculine on your own.
With each month, the intensity of the mantras keeps building until you start learning the Rudram. We have excellent tutorials to break down the text to help you learn. If you are not a chanter, you can still speak these magical words as a form of sacred alchemy.
In the early phases of the process, you learn many esoteric practices involving mantras, placements of sounds on your body, movements of the body that also include sounds and direction of our awareness in particular ways.
We also include one of our signature programs called Shiva: A Spirituality Of Blessing. With this program, you can tap into the deepest, archetypal meaning of Shiva in contrast to the widespread sense that this is some Hindu God. (See next article ...)
One of the components of this program is learning to overcome fear. We teach an Awakening of The Third Eye and methods of concentration that are quite powerful in addition to special bija mantras (seed syllables) associated with Shiva.
When you finally learn how to speak (and/or chant) the Rudram, you have developed quite a depth of experience around the sacred masculine through many other mantras, mudras, meditations, and spiritual practices.
With the Rudram, you plug into the enormous power of traditional Vedic mantras and the ancient Abhisekam (divine ablutions) performed by priests, yogis, and mystics for millennia. Learning the Rudram's opening section, the first anuvaka enables you to engage this form of worship.
Once you learn the opening section of the Rudram, you have unlocked the door to chanting even the most complex mantras and rarified levels of spiritual consciousness.
The opening section of the Rudram is considered the most potent part of the entire Rudra Namakam, culminating in one of the most compelling eulogies to Lord Shiva that is chanted in the sanctum sanctorum of Shiva temples.
If ever there is a mantra that opened your inner eye, conferring upon you the gift of spiritual vision, it is the Rudram. More importantly, chanting this mantra is a powerful method of transforming negative karmic influences in our life.
