Two Paths to Spiritual Realization

In ancient Indian yogic tradition there were broadly two paths to spiritual realization – Vivekaja marg (the path of distinction and discrimination) and Yogaja marg (the path of union and integration). Patanjali and all yoga styles based on Yogasutra followed the Vivekaja marg in which first the Purusha or Atma (Self) is separated from the Prakriti (matter) and then the Atma (individual soul) is united with Parmatma (Universal Soul). In other words yoga (union) follows viyog (separation). This philosophy known as Raja yoga forms the basis of our RYT200 Yoga Teacher Training course.

Tantra yoga known as Shaivagama (Shaivaism) has adopted the Yogaja marg in which there are 112 kinds of yoga which are called Dharana. Dharana, if practiced correctly bring about the integration of individual soul with Universal Soul (Bhairava or Shiva). Tantra yoga also helps the realization of the universe (nature) as the expression of Shiva’s play or Shakti (spiritual energy). The course is transformative and comprehensive and is entirely based on scriptures. It covers all aspects of the Shaiva philosophy: Ultimate Reality, Manifestation, Bondage, liberation and Upayas (means) of liberation.

In Raja yoga Dharana (concentration) precedes Dhyana (meditation) whereas in Tantra yoga awareness precedes state of mediation. This basic difference in Raja yoga and Tantra yoga makes Tantra relatively easier to practice and master.

Both the courses with equal emphasis on practice and theory prepare a serious aspirant for the ultimate goal of self-realization.

  • B. RYT300 Yoga Teacher Training with Swamiji in Tantra Yoga in Himalayas

Tantra literally means a discipline that expands/alters our consciousness, We can alter our experience by altering the field of consciousness.. There can be a sensory experience within a given time, space and object at the material level of consciousness, but there can also be an experience beyond the senses and beyond the framework of time, space and object. The latter experience can only happen when the present mind is either transcended or goes beyond its given definitions and borders. It is observed that whenever this experience occurs, tremendous energy is released within. This in fact is the beginning of the state of nirvana or liberation.

Tantra believes ‘Jiva is Shiva.’ In other words, every living being is Divine. It is our identification with this body that confines us to a life of a suffering creature, making us forget our true nature. Tantra yoga helps remove this veil of ignorance, studiously eschewing mechanical worship, external rites and ceremonies and going directly to the heart of the problem of the union of human consciousness with Divine.

It describes 112 types of yoga using prana, (vital/life/) energy manas (psychic energy), imagination and intuition; it brings about a realization of the universe (nature) as the expression of Shiva’s play or Shakti (spiritual energy).

The course is fairly advanced and is entirely based on scriptures. It covers all important aspects of the Shaiva system of philosophy; it can help serious aspirants achieve the ultimate goal of identification with Bhairava/Shiva, the undifferentiated universal consciousness.
