When you see a tree sprouting out of a small little seed, working out its blossoming one has to know that there must be some technique of some mechanism that works out this beautiful tree to grow. And when we evolved from amoeba to this stage we have to think there must be some mechanism which thinks, understands, organizes, loves, which has brought about this human stage from that amoeba stage.
In the ancient India – long time – people had lots of time they went into themselves, into their being through meditative understanding. ‘They’ had a glimpse of this mechanism and they talked about it and wrote about it and that’s how this Yantra – the mechanism – and the Tantra – the maneuvering of it, the technique of it – came into being. But it was a secret science. It was a very secret science and it was kept hidden from general public.
This was in ancient times. And what did they achieve, and what did they have, is all written in our scriptures. What do you expect out of Self Realization* is written in the Bible, in the Koran, in the Torah and also in all the Indian philosophy. Only people say it that in some of these scriptures it is written in a very secretive manner, under some words that, “I will appear before you as tongues of flames.” Now nobody knows what’s ‘tongues of flames’ is. There are so many sentences which you can find out now that you go and read which nobody can explain unless and until they have had an experience of Kundalini.
This is the Yantra – the mechanism, is the Kundalini, is a living force within you, It exists, it is there, is placed for your Realization, for your jumping into another awareness which is promised to you through various scriptures, through various incarnations. It is within you. Nobody told you lies. There is nothing but truth written in these books but it was to be guarded. It was to be made into secret because people would have used it for their purposes. And they have despite all that.
First, I would like to speak about Self Realization because that is blissful and then answer you about the so-called tantrikas…
