Vignana Bhairava Tantra - 36

Shut the doors

A meditation technique is described here to experience the supreme state. This should be learnt in person from a Master. It involves the closing of all the orifices of the face with the help of the 10 fingers. In a gradual manner, one realises the existence of the Supreme Consciousness in the form of a tiny dot. - Swahilya Shambhavi.

Through the spine

Nadis are subtle channels of energy that flow through the body. They are not something tangible that one can touch and see, but it is perceptible to those with subtle vision and can nevertheless be experienced. This technique mentioned by Shiva says, one can realise the supreme being if they sit down in a relaxed manner with the spine erect and focus the attention on the Sushumna Nadi that runs from the tip of the spine to the top of the head like a slender fibre of the lotus stem. Energy or Kundalini Shakti, which is nothing but one's awareness, flows through this space which is an experience of the stillness and silence of Shiva. - Swahilya Shambhavi (swahilya.soulmate@gmail.com)
