Tantra Magick​ Fundamentals

ESOTERIC BOOK CLUB

Here is this week's reading, all about TANTRA MAGICK. 

HOMEWORK

"Esquires and Handmaidens" as quoted from the book, Tantra Magick...

Optionally, you may explore this Daily Rite as homework... and practice these weekly rituals... the intention is to realize the power of perspective and focus, the fundamentals of any magick or manifestation work. Report your findings and experiences in the group discussion board.

 

The experiment is as follows....

"The curriculum which follows is intended to explore the limita-

tions and conditionings which must be destroyed before further work

can proceed. It is very important that you keep a separate and complete

record of your twenty six weeks of sense experiment. The curriculum

cannot end after twenty six weeks. The practice of Awake/Awareness

is part of your continual growth.

The Daily Rite

There is an ancient rite or ritual which will daily assist you in this work.

You must perform it upon awakening. No special preparations are

necessary. Spend between five and ten minutes on it. Perform it while

lying in bed, upon awakening.

With both feet together, visualize that a Flame of Great Effulgence

which is the Fire at the End of Time, is kindled in the big toe of your left

foot. Imagine this purifying Flame as striking upwards, enveloping

your feet and legs up to the top of your head.

This fire is called Kalagni-Rudra, or Rudra (= Shiva = Adinath) as

the Fire consuming all at the End of Time. It purifies by burning all into

ashes, which themselves in our Adinatha line are considered sacred,

and the only thing worth leaving when we exit this world of mortals.

When all energies (Shaktis) cease to be then what is left?
