Is meditation on the Self and Atma Vichara/Neti Neti higher in tantra?

Mind's Concentration is common to gyana & Yoga. Yoga aims at union of individual with universal, the Reality - which cannot be new, must exist now, and it does. Thus Path of Knowledge tries to find out how viyoga (separation) came about - separation is from Reality.

Ravi marga is jnana( path of knowledge). Moon marga is Yoga. They think that after purifying the 72,000 nadis in the body, sushumna is entered and the mind( kundalini) passes up to the sahasrara and there is nectar trickling.

Aghori is a peculiar clan of sadhus or ascetics of India. It is said that Aghora is more than 1000 years old, the first Aghora was Sage Keenaram.

They stop at the city of #Varanasi (Banaras) on the banks of the river Ganges, where the most revered temple of Kashi Vishwanath stands proudly. Aghori are devotees of Shiva, manifested as Bhairava, who seek salvation from the cycle of rebirth.
This freedom is the realization of one's identity with the Absolute.

#Pain is nuanced

For example, I could identify as someone with #chronicPain I have a few conditions that are accompanied by #pain.

If someone wants to learn Tantra then how to go about it?
#SanatanaDharma #hinduism #spirituality Image
Tantra is system; to learn the system you must first understand it. People curious about tantra think that if a white or saffron-robe wearing, old guy gives them a mantra then after some practice they’ll also start performing magic.
#SanatanaDharma #hinduism #spirituality Image
The western system educated souls think that by chanting a mantra or doing this kriya or that mudra with closed eyes, they’ll one fine day open their eyes and witness their enlightened selves. I encounter both kind of seekers every day.

Why is attachment considered negative in spirituality

Attachments cloud your mind, and make meditation, devotion, or service difficult. It is also the major source of fear and greed.
#Spirituality #meditation Image
Being with people and materialism are not negatives if you know the art of remaining detached while playing it all.
#Spirituality #meditation Image
Lord Krishna is the greatest example. He lived among all, was respected and loved both by Kauravas and Pandavas, actively participated in the war, and yet remained detached to the whole of it.

Why does meditating not work most of the time?

How does the meditator conclude this? However…
#meditation #Spirituality Image
One reason is the easy availability of enormous literature over thousands of years. Add to this the mysticism, DIY fads, fancy yogas, assembly-line style ashrams, the highs, and the instant results culture.
#meditation #Spirituality Image
Our age is ruled by- business at the speed of thought, the world in your palm, and now research is at neural level which means big corp is targeting your sub-conscious.

Die Kraft der inneren #Einstellung ist unfassbar:

In meinem höchsten kalendarischen Alter 🤦 habe ich heute eine neuen persönlichen Leistungsrekord aufgestellt, habe mich insgesamt nie besser gefühlt 🚀

▶️ Wie kam es dazu?

Ein kurzer #thread über die Kraft des #mindsets ⬇️ Image
Die letzten Jahren waren für mich als einem der Oberärzte einer Intensivstation, vor allem unter den Bedingungen der #Coronapandemie, und Familienvater sehr intensiv.

Die richtige Balance zwischen #Beruf und #Familie zu finden war nicht immer einfach. #worklifebalance
Wenn der Akku dann immer häufiger leer ist, ist es Zeit etwas zu ändern. Die Bedingungen zu ändern ist aber meist kurzfristig nicht möglich, für langfristig bessere Bedingungen setzen wir uns konstruktiv ein.

Also habe ich an meiner inneren #Einstellung gearbeitet, dem #mindset.

#Méditation pour le #MardiSaint par #JeanPaulVesco : #consentir et #résister
Jésus trempa la bouchée et la donna à Judas, fils de Simon l’Iscariote. Et, quand Judas eut pris la bouchée, Satan entra en lui.
Évangile selon saint Jean, chapitre 13, verset 26

La trahison de Judas a toutes les allures d’une tragédie grecque dans laquelle les personnages ne peuvent échapper à leur inéluctable et dramatique destin. Jésus sait qui va le trahir, il le désigne en lui donnant une bouchée, et Judas se soumet, sans un mot, au pouvoir de
Satan qui a pris possession de lui. L’un et l’autre donnent l’impression d’être mus par un autre qu’eux-mêmes, Jésus par la volonté de son Père et Judas par la volonté de Satan. Tout est écrit. Il faut que s’accomplissent les Écritures.

What is it like to be aware of your own consciousness?
#meditation #spirituality
We are aware of our own consciousness all the time.

How else are we self-assured that we are alive?

Yet, our awareness of consciousness is weak because it is muddled with thoughts which include the ‘I’ thought, the self-identity.
#meditation #spirituality
It is like you are seeing glimpses of your reflection in a dusty mirror.
Again, it is not possible for ‘I’ to be aware of ‘pure (let’s say abstract) consciousness’.

You can see it right now.

Try to be aware of yourself.

How can I know if it’s my inner self speaking and not my ego when I am meditating?
#meditation Image
Anything that speaks is your ego.

It can be a messed up and bruised ego sometimes.

It can be a cheerful and decisive ego sometimes.
#meditation Image
Nevertheless, it is ego all the time.

The inner self or the AntarAtma as we call it in the Hindu scriptures does not participate in the chatter.

It is a silent smiling witness to all the chatter.

There’s an elephant in the room that nobody seems to be bothered about.
Several of spiritually aware people are often depressed and anxious. Why is that so? Why aren’t they happy and peaceful as they ought to be?
#spirituality #meditation
I made it part of my work to inspire and support people to take up Spiritual practices and meditation. But where did that lead me?
#spirituality #meditation
Most of the people I encountered were those who have become depressed, anxious, psychotic, eccentric, maniac, and even suicidal. Now my focus has shifted from Spirituality and I am more concerned about such people.

Here's a thread with key lessons from each chapter of the Bhagavad Gita.
Chapter 1:

Every duty comes with challenges. Learn to embrace the hardships - thats half the battle won.
Chapter 2:

You will never know peace, long as you are attached.

Peace comes from detachment.

Let's talk about #meditation and chronic illness:
1) It's not gonna cure your medical conditions.
2) It might improve your life in some ways, IF you're committed long term and have reasonable expectations for what it should do. 🧵
There are many types of meditation. What I'm talking about here are calming & insight meditations, aka the types @Headspace uses. This involves lots of focusing on bodily sensations, paying attention to breathing, & noticing when thinking or feeling gets in the way of that focus.
This might sound like a nightmare. "Focus on what's happening in my body? When I feel like shit?!" I get it. That's what I said too. I was VERY hesitant, especially bc doctors gaslit me in the past by suggesting meditation & saying my physical health problems were "just anxiety."
