About Students and Sacred Texts, Tantra, Ultimate Reality, Yogic Mystery School, and the Teacher.
We study many sacred texts in our Yogic Mystery School. One of these texts is the Lalita Sahasranama included in the course Ultimate Shakti. The Lalita Sahasranama is a set of 1000 names of the Absolute Godhead as feminine. While one might find these names in books or on the internet, there are particular and peculiar aspects of Tantra related to these names that one will not find in the public domain. We teach methods and concepts from the authentic tradition while at the same time maintaining a democratic teaching style that seeks to empower and educate the student. We specialize in helping our students become teacher-healers in their own right.
Secret teachings remain hidden in the language and terminology of sacred texts, which is how the Tantric tradition has operated from its early years. For this reason, there is a deliberate method of obfuscation and disguise. The problem with this method is that it leaves many aspects of the tradition open to interpretation. The result is that of the blind leading the blind: students may study Tantra from teachers who teach from their head rather than from experience born of self-transformation.
Our method in Yogic Mystery School does not demand secrecy from our students. Nor do we ask students to surrender their minds or hearts, or identity. Our approach is part democratic, part academic, part mystical, part psychological. We make a conscious effort to avoid spiritual bypassing, a condition rampant in spirituality worldwide. We place a tremendous value on personal healing and vulnerability that includes the teacher. We also place great importance on transparency and truthfulness. None of us want to be deluded by ignorance masquerading as wisdom. So we encourage our students to remain sharp, aware, and discerning.
The Lalita Sahasranama is only one of many sacred Tantric texts we study in our Yogic Mystery School. The study of texts needs to be accompanied by spiritual practice, discipline, self-evaluation, introspection, and, most of all, awareness and relationship with something more than oneself and one's self-consciousness. In our Yogic Mystery School, we want students to develop their relationship with Ultimate Reality without mediation. The role of the teacher is to educate, empower, and guide, not substitute himself or herself as the Absolute Reality.
In the program Ultimate Shakti, we concentrate on the first 108 names of the Lalita Sahasramana. We also learn the 108 names of Durga. Another text we study is the Durga Suktam. And we tap into the Devi Mahatmya. Sacred texts are not all we are learning. We are engaged in powerful practices and developing our perspective, as well. Our specialty is the chanting of the sacred Sanskrit texts properly to awaken the Shakti. So we do provide meaning, as well. And the depth of understanding we provide, along with the etymology of the Sanskrit words, is extremely rare, if not a hundred percent unique.
We are not seeking to provide quantity but quality. Nevertheless, for the student who desires much, much is given. Our constant reminder is to ensure that we are becoming better humans. Are we transforming our negative behaviors and habits? Are we experiencing genuine spiritual reality? Are we handling life well? Are we thriving? Are we improving our relationships? What is the use of knowing esoteric practices and Tantric cosmology if beneficial results are not showing up in our work, our careers, our health?
The discovery of wholeness, wellness, holistic mind, emotional healing, freedom from trauma, all this is why we study and practice Tantra. We recommend health coaching and the brain-mind connection with Asha, my wife, and partner, who is also my coach for those who want the full range of what we offer. Asha has helped me immensely with my spiritual bypass. I often joke that I was the poster boy for spiritual bypass. I have only recently woken up from this condition, and I do not take it for granted. All of the students in our Yogic Mystery School are deeply committed to discovering and rectifying spiritual bypassing. Without these efforts, Tantra, or any spiritual method, can be fraught with delusion.
The potent mantras you learn range from devotional expressions to mantras from the Rig Veda. We combine Vedic, Tantric, and Bhakti mantras to create a formidable force that we channel towards specific areas, issues, circumstances in our lives. This is an advanced program!
This type of practice is cultivating devotion "bhakti" in the heart, but make no mistake: the kind of mantras you learn for this practice are extremely powerful.
This type of practice is not only to burn impurities within our soul, negative karma, so to speak but also to invoke the Shakti force through an actual physical fire.
In this type of practice, you learn to channel the Shakti towards specific issues and circumstances presently happening in your life you wish to transform through power.
Agni, fire, is the principal deity of the Vedas. The very first mantra of the Rig Veda is to Agni. Fire, we know, is at the origin of our universe. It is also the most transformative element and so plays a central role in the spiritual alchemy of Tantra.
For thousands of years, humans have gathered around to share stories and create a sense of safety, especially at night. In ancient India, they developed the havan, an ancient ritual making offerings in a sacred fire with mantras. The havan is the earliest ritual described in the Vedas, where the mantras themselves are fire sounds.
You will learn to perform this ancient ritual for your spiritual transformation and how to offer it to your students for their healing.
Because we specialize in mantra, the strength of your study will be in this aspect of Tantra, which is the mastery of speech.
While mantras in themselves are powerful, combining mantras with mudras raises the scope of their efficacy exponentially.
While this is the least important component of our study, you will learn to use it with mantras and mudras.
