Guruji Rajkumar Aryavart, an Indian master of Kundalini and Tantra is offering a unique sadhana (spiritual practice) at the AlpenRetreat. This is a special opportunity to participate in a process of purification and transformation as he specialises in harmoniously guiding the energy of Kundalini. Or to simply book a personal meeting.
This won’t be a neo-tantra offering. There is no sex involved. No relationship work. You will be working directly with your own energetical potential. Potential which is amplified and brought to a greater harmony by meditation and a process called Shakti Pat. You will experience authentic tantra as it’s been taught for thousands of years, before it was used as a marketing buzzword.
You’ll be utilizing tantric technologies to work directly on your energetic system, this includes using Sanskars, a combination of herbs that help to open the subtle body to be able to receive the transmission.
You’ll be working with the three main technologies of Tantra:
1. Mantra (sound)
2. Yantra (geometric form)
3. Yagna (fire)
A mantra is the sound form of a particular energy. Specific sounds, words or phrases are repeated.
By practicing the repetition of mantras and by verbalizing the sounds internally or externally, we commune with and invoke the beneficial energies specific to the mantras.
Mantra is an important tool used in many spiritual practices to generate the necessary energy to power a certain process. The word ‘mantra’ is derived from two words – ‘manas’ meaning the cognitive mind, and ‘trai’ meaning to protect or free from. Hence mantra is a tool that can be used to become free from the mind.
Every sound has a form, and every form has a corresponding sound. Therefore, every mantra has a yantra, and every yantra has a corresponding mantra.
The yantra is a geometrical design which can be used as a tool for meditation and transformation of the internal energies. The different geometric patterns symbolically represent different aspects of the creative forces of the universe. For instance the central point represents the absolute or the infinite, the four gates around the edge represent the four directions.
But beyond the symbolism is the true science of Yantras, and its basis is in its geometry. Just as the sound of mantras can be used to transform your energy system, you can use Yantras to do the same.
Yantras can be empowered by invoking a mantra over the yantra, so that it becomes a living form of its particular energy.
That living form is often a particular aspect of the Goddess, such as Tara, Kali, or Saraswati.
Certain geometrical shapes are better than others in holding the energy that is poured into them. If you’re wanting to work with the energy of Tara, then you’ll create a geometry that holds the energy that’s poured into the Yantra. If you use the wrong geometry, the energy will simply slip away and will be useless in the process.
By combining the use of the mantra with the yantra we can experience a true process of Tantra.
The aim of tantra has been to purify oneself without negation of life’s situations, without negation of the weaknesses which we have inherited. Tantric yagnas invoke energy, shakti.
If you have a dirty pot you take a hose pipe and clean the pot with the water coming through the pipe. Similarly, the tantric yajnas represent the flow of water in the pipe. We are the dirty pots and it is the force of the water that cleans the pot.
Yagnas aim at uniting the individual mind with the cosmic mind. Offerings of ghee (clarified butter) are thrown on to the fire whilst reciting mantras. This is done to connect with aspects such as the cardinal directions and particular energies of the yogic tradition that support the success of the ceremony.
Special herbs or rice, sugar and sesame seeds are further offered to the fire with a specific mantra depending upon one’s personal sadhana or the group intention.
Wolfgang was first exposed to the yoga tradition at the age of 17 as he traveled in 2001, with Jan Tomas, the co-founder of the Alpen Retreat. This has greatly expanded his horizons, though it was not yet the time to start with the practice of yoga and spirituality. Spiritual singing and music is one of his great passions and is a major influence in his teachings as well as his personal experiences in various traditions such as Kriya yoga, Hatha yoga, Tantra yoga, Hridaya yoga, Buddhist meditation, psycho-spiritual work, and shamanism.
Guruji also known as Guruji Maharaj serves as a Tantric Master and Spiritual Guide to hundreds of disciples that have had the fortune to meet him and take initiation into Tantric Mantra Sadhana. Guruji has been guided by 67 Gurus from various mystical traditions over the past 4 decades. His main practices follow the principles of Shaivism and the study Tantra using Mantra, Yantra, Yagna, Kriya and the Sanskar herbal purification process. Guruji Aryavart is under the direct guidance of Maha Guru Sri Bhairavananda, a devotee of Lord Bhairava Son of Shiva and Maa Chandeshwari.
