tantra - How is tantric sex, meat eating and alcohol consumption justified? - Hinduism Stack Exchange

Neither i will be able to explain to you its secrets nor you will be able to grasp what is being said in its entirety but still here are few inputs from my side. Why use panchamakara in sadhana and how is it justified? It is justified because it is prescribed in the scriptures. That is reason enough. For example, if someone asks how are animal sacrifices justified?

The scriptures that prescribe them in sadhana, prescribe them for attaining moksha. Shaivism - Do all Shaiva Siddhantins reject Vamachara practices as sinful? - Hinduism Stack Exchange. Tirumular in Tirumantiram condemns Vamachara practises like drinking wine: 326: The Wicked Drink In VAma Tantra Lust and drink, fit for the wicked are they; In ritual unholy they drink and lose the senses But the wise drink the nectar streaming from his feet, Which destroys egoism and bigotry. 327: Drinking In Vama Tantra Worship Leads To Perdition They drink and perish, who to the vama sect belong.

The lustful ones in sensual delights are wholly lost; But the pure souls find the light of sacrifices in their inner flame; They, who his true name chant, approach him fast.328: Truth Eludes Drunkards They see not the inner truth, know not the pasu-pasa, They dwell not in the bounteous lord's divine grace; In the clear light of wisdom, Sivayoga they seek not, They, who soak in liquors, truth never can appraise. The Rig Veda/Mandala 10/Hymn 85. Shat-Sampat: Six-fold Virtues. The very root and core of all mental purification is through active practice of virtue.

Shat-Sampat: Six-fold Virtues

Be determined never to swerve even an inch from the path of virtue. The mind has to be carefully trained and the will should be developed and strengthened. The development of a sensitive conscience and positive admiration for goodness and nobility plays a great part in jnana yoga. Āgama (Hinduism) - Wikipedia.

Fragments of a Faith Forgotten, by G.R.S. Mead [1900]

Pratyabhijna - Wikipedia. Pratyabhijna (Sanskrit: प्रत्यभिज्ञा, translit. pratyabhijñā, lit. 're-cognition') is an idealistic monistic and theistic school of philosophy in Kashmir Shaivism, originating in the 9th century CE.

Pratyabhijna - Wikipedia

The term Trika was used by Abhinavagupta to represent the entire Kashmir Shaivism or to designate the Pratyabhijna system.[1] The name of the system is derived from its most famous work, Īśvara-pratyabhijñā-kārikā by Utpaladeva.[2]:254 Etymologically, Pratyabhijna is formed from prati- ("re-") + abhi (preposition meaning "closely") + *jñā ("to know"). So, the meaning is direct knowledge of one's self, "recognition".[3]:117 The central thesis of this philosophy is that everything is Śiva, absolute consciousness, and it is possible to re-cognize this fundamental reality and be freed from limitations, identified with Śiva and immersed in bliss.[4] Thus, the slave (paśu - the human condition) shakes off the fetters (paśa) and becomes the master (pati - the divine condition).[2]:254.

Goraksha sataka. [ Fenêtre sur le Hatha Yoga - CENTRE JAYA ] Ce soir, et cela n’est pas habituel, je vais vous parler d’un domaine qui ne relève pas directement de la philosophie.

[ Fenêtre sur le Hatha Yoga - CENTRE JAYA ]

Il participe toutefois intensément à la préparation de la pratique méditative en donnant au corps de la force, de l’endurance et de la stabilité.Je veux parler du HA-THA YOGA. Le mot HATHA est composé de deux syllabes.HA= soleil prâna, force de vie.THA= lune, énergie mentale. Il est dit que ce yoga est le plus violent mais aussi le plus rapide et ses effets quantifiables en sont la preuve. On l’associe au concept du mot "tapas" qui inclut à la fois la notion d’austérité et de pratique que représente la sadhana (la pratique spirituelle), mais aussi la notion de feu et de combustion.

Le travail du Hatha yoga, basé sur le pranayama, les asanas, et bien d’autres pratiques physiques, va accélérer le processus de combustion des toxines et de purification du corps, en chassant ses inerties et en réveillant les énergies dormantes et insoupçonnables.

Author Amateo Ra: You might have had an experience many of us share: We get an idea, a thought or even a dream with a theme that truly inspires us, stretches our minds or opens us up to a greater understanding ourselves and our lives. And, like magic, within a day or so, we find a book which not only confirms our thoughts and feelings, but goes deeper into the very idea we had than we even did.

How cool is it the Universe works with such magic & synchronciticy? Many of us have also experienced that moment where we find the perfect book at the right time, and it exactly addresses what we’ve been thinking about, wanting to learn more of or a story whose themes directly relates our current lives and experiences.

Two core principles: Practice (abhyasa, 1.13) and non-attachment (vairagya, 1.15) are the two core principles on which the entire system of Yoga rests (1.12). It is through the cultivation of these two that the other practices evolve, by which mastery over the mind field occurs (1.2), and allows the realization of the true Self (1.3).
