No Spiritual Practices are Required - Tantra


While Yoga is subjectively oriented, Tantra has more of a firm objective bias. It has yielded a rich harvest of ritualism and a plethora of mystic syllables, diagrams and esoteric Vidyas, traces of which are clearly found in the Upanisads. Tantra gathered momentum by pursuing Sava-sadhana, Preta-sadhana and the sex act as Divine rite. As time wore on the world was littered with such exotic concepts as Kundalini, Satchakra, Bhutasuddhi, Asana-Suddhi, Pancha-makara and the like. What a grand enterprise to schematize the Infinite and to forcibly implant it into body and mind! But, Tantra professedly has a profound philosophy to offer. In it the ultimate Reality is a perfect equipoise of Siva (masculine power) and Sakti (feminine power). Its goal is to fully awaken the human Soul from its state of slumber and to raise it to the state of Purnahanta (free of egoism), Svatantrya (freedom), Omniscience and Omnipotence through the complete awakening of Kundalini, to be achieved through Samadhi, through a state of equilibrium of Prana and Apana. This state of Moksha is glibly dovetailed with Bhoga! And the entire farrago of Tantric merchandise is laid bare before you to bear on the contingency of Nada, Bindu, Kala, Kama-Kala, etc.! All this is good talk, but bad logic. It suffers from egoism and mental geometrization, and when achieved is necessarily an effect, limited in space and time. It is transitory and is right under your thumb. This may give you some miraculous power for a short spell of time. But it has nothing to do with Him. In practice, Tantra indulges in perverse sex acts and its multiform seeming sublimation. But the sex act, in fact, no act can ever lead to the Zero experience. To realize Him one can achieve by simple and straightforward means. There is no necessity for mental or physical wrestling. Otherwise such and such wrestlers would have achieved Him much earlier.

Initiation, Revelation

By Diksha (initiation, revelation of God’s Name) you realize Him. Genuine Diksha means revelation. You must see what is going on within your Self. That is Truth.
A person is born initiated. One has simply to realize this fact. He is within as Mahanam.
Other than mind, beyond mind, there is no language, only Diksha.
Diksha, Darshan (vision of God), that thing (Truth) is everywhere. But, we could not find It. We have forgotten because of Prakriti (physical Nature) and Maya (Divine Creative Power). When you will be off (ego ceases to exist), then you will find Truth.
Initiation (Diksha) means seeing Him (Darshan). Does the body remain when you see Him? Mantra! Beej! What is all this tittle-tattle you utter? Can a body-bound Guru ever give all these? If a seed has no energy, that seed is dead and no fruit comes of that seed.
How will it do if there is no Darshan? Darshan, however, is an internal affair. If we cannot taste the Rasa of Krishna Leela (relish God's Love), what else shall we do?


All is God. He is Infinite, Indivisible, Full. God is we. So who will give Mantra (Supreme Name)? Guru is within. Just remember Him, that is enough.
When I am united with the Husband, Who is Govinda, when I have taken refuge in His basal Existence, how can I utter His Name (there being no separate Existence)?
Other than that One which is within, is there anybody who can tell you, I am giving Mantra?
Whispering a Mantra in the ear of the aspirant during an initiation ceremony is no Diksha at all. It is a fraud and a hoax.
Mantra is already there with you.
In the ear, human Gurus are giving Mantra. What is the utility? At the time of birth, we have received that Mahamantra (Great Name of the Supreme) and Diksha (initiation). So, who will give, other than Him? That is the thing that Dadaji is to convey. That is His Message.
A human Guru whispers some words into the ear of the disciple and orders that they be repeated over and over. How does the human Guru know these words? They come from the mind. What arises from the mind is a distortion of Truth. Certainly these words do not come from Him. The human Guru in his or her own interest gives the Mantra. A regular income is thus assured from a business in the Name of God. What a calamity! Can there be a greater crime?
Yes, Jap (Name repetition) and Dhyana (meditation), whatever you say, have a use at one time. But whose meditation or Name repetition will we do? That we need to know in advance. When Nam (Supreme Name) and Nami (the Named) become One, then there is Supreme Bliss, then all is perfect.
Why do you go for Jap? He has been doing It (Mahanam) round the clock. You just try to listen to that.
How can I give you Mantra? Tantra? Everything is within.
Ego is not being eliminated with the help of Mantras and penances, rather these things enhance its bondage.
It is futile to compare the Mantra given by so-called Guru and the Mahanam you have received direct from Sri Sri Satyanarayan.
What indeed is muttering the Name thousands of times? All these are superficialities.
This is all jugglery, do you understand? Repeating Mantras and meditation are another form of egotism. Can one get Him by millions of repetitions of Mantras? Has He told you to go to Him with a treasury of numerical digits? What is the meaning of Laksa Jap (hundreds of thousands of Name repetitions)? In an instant Laksa Jap is done, if the Laksya (aim or target) is toward Him. Doing Laksa and Laksa of Name repetition is of no use if He is not kept as the Laksya.

Why count beads or utter a few words not having a direct relation with Him? He is within you. You remember Him and try to love. You cannot have anything with meaningless external exercises. Nam is ringing in your heart. Nam alone will put you on the line of communion.  Mantra? Why do you bother? It will come automatically. Automatically you will understand.  It is He Who is your Guru. He has been constantly ringing the Mantra in your heart. If you want to hear it, do approach Him and pray for His favor. He is waiting for your prayer. Pray for the Mantra, but not under any condition nor for fulfillment of your worldly desire. It should be in one mind and in earnestness, and you will get It (Mahanam).
