Many people associate tantric practice with casual sex but that is not what Tantra is all about. Contrary to the ascetic philosophies, the tantric way embraces our feminine and masculine inner qualities, the sounds of mantras, external beauty and joy as a venue to enlightenment. Since Tantra is a more expedient way to enlightenment, naturally it should be closer to our instant gratification seeking Western culture. However, as with most things Eastern we tend to misinterpret many of the Tantric venues, if the books are any indication to our current understanding.
Tantric practice transmutes the energy of desire, realizing that the Universal and primordial divine energy is already within us. We just have to allow it to surface. That is not accomplished by thinking or learning but by letting go, allowing the sounds of mantra to liberate us from our physical imperfection and prison.
All religion uses some forms of music or chanting to accomplish something similar to tantric chanting. We have the hymns in Christianity, canticles in the Kabala, dancing and music in the Sufi tradition, similarly the Buddhist and Hindu tantric practice uses mantras as the vehicle to liberation.
I will not write a comprehensive essay on Tantric chants but point the reader to certain, functional websites to further study. I disagree with the traditional Buddhist way of finding a right Lama to finally accomplish this enlightenment. It is, in my opinion not practical nor very easy. I believe you can practice on your own with the purpose of making this planet a better place for all its inhabitants and not only for your selfish needs, then you will somehow find the way to accomplish this. However, if you are fortunate to have found the right Tantric teacher then by all means do what is natural and learn with his/her guidance.
The Magic of IHVH-ADNI is focused around a Hebrew kabalistic phrase which is spoken musically, almost in the manner of singing.
ANI – IHVH ADNI – RBVNV ShL OVLM – AMN
(Ani – Yod Heh Vav Heh Adonai – Ribbono Shel Olam – Amen)It is “canted”, so to speak, but in a magical way involving mental, astral and physical utterance. To this three-body speech is added the visualization of specific energy movements which occur in sync with the canticle. Rawn Clark is the person who first introduced this old kabalistic magical canticle online, and he graciously developed a course to properly learn to pronounce and sing it. His course can be found http://www.abardoncompanion.com/TMO-Links.html
The Medicine Buddha Mantra
Om Bekandze Bekandze
Radza Samudgate Soha
The mantra means:
May the many sentient beings
who are sick,
quickly be freed from sickness.
And may all the sicknesses of beings
Never arise again.

We are constantly involved with people from our past life. But how that complicated entanglement manifests itself and how to resolve it is a question very few books will tell you. Let me, for illustration purposes, quote a story from my teacher’s Guru, RHH’s book; “Talk Does not Cook the Rice”. The word “Husk” implies that when realizing what is going on (always the first step) and properly acting will dissolve the Husk and allow us to move forward in our spiritual progress.
“A young lady had been engaged to a man for 18-years, and their purported marriage was a constant source of arguments, a battle back and forth..She came to me for advice one day, why they could not be married? I said, “I rather you ask yourself this question and when and if you have the answer, you come back to me and I verify that, If I tell you now, you will accept it on an intellectual grounds and you would feel it was right or perhaps not, but like with deep esoteric matters, if you put it to the test, then it would come from within and then it is an experience and you’d KNOW first hand, not secondhand…
A few months later she was back and told me; “I know the reason…In a former life in Italy, I was Jewish and I was involved with a Roman. Now(in this life) he is Jewish and I am Catholic, and he has a complex of being Jewish and the whole idea of intermarriage just makes him worry.
In our former life I as a Jew lived in a Ghetto and there were strict laws against intermarriage (as a Roman your wealth was to taken away if they suspected any involvement) . But we secretly and in a hidden way managed and we even had a son together. Our mother wisely suggested we give our child to a relative to raise and the boy grew up with I pretending to be a nanny to be with him. The boys father died in a chariot race, and when he was sixteen, I revealed to him who I was (his birth-mother) and how he was a half Jew. But he got upset and threw me out and sent me back to the Ghetto. One day, I was knocked down on the town square by a horse and I broke my back. As I looked up, dying, in a flashback I saw the face of the man, my son, and he was the same man I am involved in this lifetime!
Then, I have realized that we cannot marry until we resolve this karmic entanglement somehow and release it. Marriage would not suffice. This is what the ancient wisdom call Karmic Husk and it is more common than many realize.”
Marriage in this case would have been foolish, but realizing what had happened and discussing and releasing thee karmic husk via forgiveness would have been the proper solution.Share on Facebook
