SHIVATVA SADHANA

Shiva, Shivatva, siddha, kaulantak Nath, Mahadev, Ishan, Shankar, Adinath, Rudra, Siddha




                             SHIVATAVA SADHANA  is the biggest sadhana of Lord Shiva in this universe. No sadhana is parralled to do this sadhana when it comes to Lord Shiva. This sadhana carries uniqueness in itself as this sadhana is very easy yet very much complicated due to the fact that the guru can only give this sadhana to his disciple once. Even the guru cannot give this sadhana twice in his life such is the grandeur of this sadhana. This sadhana belongs to the GUPT kula and Siddha kula of the himalayas. Much has been said about this sadhana. This sadhana is the base of all spiritual pursuit. 
                             For any aspirant in the field of spiritualism this sadhana is the foremost needed sadhana and its very difficult sadhana to achieve. Since the Guru can only give this sadhana once in his life it is the most hardest sadhana to find in this globe. None can get this diksha easily one needs to have a good sanskar and a good prarabdh too. He has to have heaps of virtue in his life. This sadhana is like the milestone of ones life, whoever takes this sadhana doesn't look back because he now has a way to walk and a destination to reach and his path becomes Shiva and his destination becomes Shiva. This sadhana  transforms and individual from JIVA to SHIVA and putting fanaticism aside one doesn't become Shiva in a day just like Rome wasn't built in a day, after a great degree of perseverance and diligence one becomes Shiva after many births and this sadhana is the starting point and being Shiva is the destination. This sadhana is beyond life sadhana too because the effect of this sadhana doesn't finish with life. The positive part of this sadhana is that even if the sadhak dies he resumes his sadhana from where he or she left in the next birth, he automatically is attracted to lord Shiva sadhana and walks in its pursuit. There is a rumour pertaining it this sadhana that even if the sadhaka dies he still can remember his past life, guru and sadhana learnt from his guru in the next birth, this sadhana is the synopsis of all the great achievement of the rishi munis. Basically  Kaulachar is a Shaiv margi path through Shakti, They basically worship Shakti and her various form to be Shiva one day. So this sadhana is the base for both Shaiva and Shakta marg as in Shakta marg too Shiva and Shakti are one and same.
                          Talking about Shivatva, its something hard to explain. Kaulachar believes in both formal and informal gods. So Shiva in Kaulachar means the formal god who holds a trident and wear snake garland and with a bluish body whos always absorbed in the bliss of the self and also the informal, shapeless god named BRAHMAN and in Tantra we call it Shiva. So SHIVATVA SADHANA is done to be Shiva or to be like Shiva both formally and informally. Its like stating that from this day that one has started his journey to become one with Lord Shiva.

Shivatva Sadhana, January 2nd, 2012:
                              The Shivatva sadhana was conducted by his Holiness Mahayogi Satyendra Nath at Ghyagi, few kilometers ahead from Banjar, Kullu, Himanchal Pradesh, India. It was before the dusk of 1st January 2012 that we had to reach the place. Since January 1st is Mahayogi's spiritual birthday so he decided to call his first shivir on the 2nd of January. The sadhana was conducted inside a small room in one of his relatives inn, the whole place was hired and the room was decorated with yellow and maroon cloth signifying the Shiva and Shakti aspect of Kaulachar tradition. The seat of Mahayogi ji was at the corner adjoining the wall 3-4 ft above the ground where he was seated with the traditional dress made of wool and that is worn by the sadhaks in the Himalayas. The first night was basically about introducing ourselves as there were only 4 person who made it to the shivir. Only 30 sadhaks were allowed to perform the sadhana and out of them only 4 managed to reach the spot. Everyone had there own story of how they reached there. Basically first night after conversation all the sadhaks went to sleep so that the sadhana could start from next morning.

                                        The sadhana started next morning. It was cold but we all had taken the bath and seated themselves in the small hall. Mahayogi Satyendra Nath ji was already present in the hall. The group did the pavitrikaran or purification of their's and the sadhana procedure started. The uniqueness of this shivir was that the sadhaks had to make the yantra themselves in a piece of paper and then they themselves had to energise it and unlock the yantra. That was quite refreshing because the sadhaks personally did sadhana with all the premade yantras bought from somewhere. They were given mantra initiation of Paradeshwor Shiva mantra and the main sadhana mantra, The utkilan of the mantra based on Kaulachar is done with the nada or the sound. They had to repeat and chant the mantras loudly whilst playing the instruments. The first day was a simple rituals and they did the Patripuja to Yogini. The sadhaks made snakes, goats made of dough and offered it the Yoginis,
                                      The next day was basically all about hawan and the final diksha. They performed the hawan and had to chant the mantras loudly and basically Mahayogi ji put panchamrit in the conchshell and he recited some mantras and offered it to the sadhak to drink and he said something in there ears which they aren't allowed to tell and after  that the shivir was concluded and all the sadhaks left for there home. The whole experience was quite holistic one as the sadhaks had travelled thousand kilometers from there house to perform this sadhana and its the most unique sadhana that they had ever took part in, as this embarked the start of the journey of sadhak of sadhana life. I am sure they were all  quite excited with the prospect of stepping into the path of Shiva marg or to become a Shaivaite.

                            So, this was how the shivir was concluded. It was an awesome experience for the sadhak and the first ever sadhana of  most of there live's that they had taken part in. They have never looked back since because after that they have persistently walked into the path of spiritualism to walk in the path that leads to Shiva. Their journey is on and they are simply walking on it.

Dhumavati Sadhana Shivir:
                                                          Dhumavati Sadhana Shivir was conducted on 27th and  28th of the month of september on the auspicious occasion of Pitri Paksh on the remote and serene hills of Giri Ganga at outskirts of Shimla. This place is also a holy place for Hindus as legend has it that a siddha was performing an austurity and Joginis were testing him and they spilled the water from the siddha's kamandalu and because of the tapa of the siddha the spilled water became Ganga of the hills or popularly Giriganga and the location has a pool with a temple of Ganga and the siddha inside it and also a Shiv temple with goddess Durga, Ganesha and Kartikeya inside it. The shivir place couldn't have been much better then this because the team wanted a place which had a lot of vegetation and trees, far from the noises of civilization, calm and composed environment and since this is a Dhumavati Sadhana Shivir we were expecting some hurdles in the sadhanas and also change in weather too.
                                                                Let's start the review but before i start it let me introduce the Goddess and also decipher her symbolism with the things that i learned in this shivir. Dhumavati Goddess is one of the prime Mahavidya among the "Dus Mahavidya". Dhumavati Goddess is the goddess of feuds and duals. She is pictured as the Goddess who is a very old and a widow and wears white saffron cloth with dishellved white hair. She holds a winnowing fan and though she being pictured as a very old and poor olderly women she still sits upon a golden chariot in a Veer mudra or Dhumamudra. The chariot is crow driven and has a flag with crow inscribed on it and also a crow sitting on the top of the chariot. She being pictured as an old widow with disheveled hair represents she swallowing her own consort Shiva and she hides inside her the Shiva that all yogis aspire to be. If one perfects Dhumavati Mahavidya then the mystery of Shiva unfolds to the sadhaks. She is also called Alakshmi because of she being poor and holding a winnowing fan. It literally means the realistic view of life because everything in life isn't beautiful and pleasure giving. In Srividya you look at the pleasure part of life and through it attain the Goddess state situated at the bindu of ones forehead whilst Dhumavati sadhana is the opposite. Every sadhaks has to go through the rough patches of life being prone to numerous feuds and struggles both inside and outside. She causes the turmoil in the life of sadhaks and this is also the dark part and unless and until one doesn't conquer the inner feuds and outer then one cannot attain the real Shree that is ones inner self or the Dhumra Shiva state. So,  Dhumavati sadhana means to attain the shivahood through exploring the dark side of ones life. This sadhana being realistic became the penance of several big hermits like Daitya Guru Shukracharya, Piplad rishi, Agyastya Muni, Maharishi Durvasha etc. She is pictured on Veer asana or Dhumra asana means the sadhanas for the braves. Her sadhana is done with a veer bhava i.e warrior mentality and not with a slave mentality because one has to win the battles of life to reach the supreme so she helps sadhaks in there pursuit of reality. Her chariot is made of gold because gold represents knowledge and posperity. The contrast of her being pictured as an old poor widow with a winnowing fan on her hand and sitting on the golden chariot means she is the way from the dark phase of ones life to the real wealth and the real wealth is not luxuries but inner bliss and the knowledge of ones inner self. So she literally means the real wealth of ones life is not luxuries but the inner bliss and knowledge. The winnowing fan in her hand means the hunger she has. The hunger for feud. The crow emblem represents the Pitri aspects because the crow is associated with being the messenger that takes the messages of ours to the ancestor so while doing Shraddha some part of bhog is given to the crow. Some part of the fruit of the sadhana also goes to the ancestors as it is done on Pitri Paksh where all rituals are abandoned and there is also rainfalls in these period with fogs and mist too.
                                    It was a hectic day for me on the morning of 25th September as I had just arrived on Delhi and at the end of the day i had to catch a bus to Shimla and then reach the sadhana spot which is 95km further. I was picked up by one of the sadhaks who was taking a sookshma diksha and then after being fresh in his apartment he dropped me to another sadhak so that we  all could go together. As previously warned by Kaulantak Nath that the sadhaks who were coming to the shivir would be facing some feuds while travelling. I travelled peacefully till Delhi thinking everything will go well but not until we caught a bus from Delhi. We were misinformed and misguided about the travel scheduled of the bus. We were asked to change the bus for Shimla from Ambala station and that was the last straw for us as  we had made the payments till Shimla and we were asked to change buses. We had a feud over there and at the end after the help of patrolling policemen we were put to another bus and we reached Shimla in the morning and then picking other sadhaks over there we set our journey to the sadhana spot. We reached the sadhana spot at the end of the day as the road was heavily damaged by the rains. We had one of our vehicles damaged so we had to do two trips to the location. It was after 7pm that we selected the spot for cooking and to put the tents. It was at the opposite side of the Giriganga temple just above the rivulet. We put the tents through the help of torch light because we had no electricity and it was cold too. Nevertheless we managed to erect 3 tents and also a cooking place. The eve before the sadhana day all went in the preparation of the spot as we had reached there late and it was 01:30 am when we headed for our tents to say farewell to fatigues.
                                 "Hey wake up and tell me where should we go for the morning toilet?" was the first sentence i heard at the morning of the shivir as one of the sadhaks had a great pressure mounting on and there ain't any toilets on Himalays. Reluctantly with a big stretch I accompanied him and we went to the deep rivulet side. The rule has it that at the Himalayas one shouldn't pee standing nor can one dump his or her excreta wherever they want. There is a standard modus operandi for that. First one has to dig a pit and then pray the local god and then take the dump and then cover it with mud. I was no new to it as I had already done the Maha Moksha Sadhana at Himalaya. We then took a holy dip on the pool of Giriganga with Kaulantak Nath and then paid homage to the Ganga and Siddha idol inside the temple. We went to the sadhana spot just few meters uphill from the tent. We had to make the yantra on the mud as this is a very secret sadhana and its procedure and its yantra is also secretive so we weren't given the printed slide like before. The sadhana was formally started and then the mysteries of the sadhana were unfolded and made clear to us. The yogic way of conducting the sadhana was also unfolded. The first day was basically all about "awaran puja". We had more then 7 awaran puja to conduct. So the first day was spent on the awaran puja and tarpan and yagyas. Since we didn't have a sound sleep the previous day because of the journey and hectic scheduled we hit the beds early.
                                The next day we woke up early and after a holy dip we were preparing for the final day. We visited the local Kali Ma Jogini temple situated some meters away from the rivulet. We offered a sweets to the Jogini and took her blessings for the smooth conduct of the shivir. We then did a brief yagna in the morning and we completed the remaining awaran puja of Dhumavati Mahavidya. We had to chant 3 rounds of those given mantras each in a secluded area where there were no other sadhaks in the radius of 10m. We put the avaran on the yantra and the awaran cloth was white color because its Dhumavati sadhana and the color red is prohibited because she is a widow and as had swallowed her own consort. Even the red clothes and use of maroon color is prohibited. So the white color cloth was used and also a white color boundary was made for the diksha. Kaulantak Nath then posed himself in the Veer asana or Dhuma Asana gave shaktipat dhumavati diksha by placing his thumb on the forehead of the sadhaks. A particular thing to be noted was the sudden change of the temperature and the start of the fog while giving this diksha. The surrounding started to be fogy meaning the Goddess Dhumavati  was spreading her fog to bestow sadhaks with her blessings. The whole day we had to face drizzling rain then amazingly after this diksha there was a clear weather and we removed the awaran for doing the final Maarjan. After it we put the awaran and then completed the yagnas. The whole day and the other day we had a company of local musicians playing there flutes and drums as per the rule of kaulachar. At the end of the sadhana Kaulantak Nath paid gratitude to all the sadhaks and musicians and the goddess Dhumavati for the smooth conduct of sadhana because this is the sadhana that was conducted after 250 years in our lineage through the guru sishya parampara and that too with such ease and no climatic hazards and disturbance. This ain't possible except throught the grace of Goddess Dhumavati herself. She is the Goddess of feuds and her sadhana without feuds is impossible unless she wishes to. We were lucky in this aspect. So we had concluded the sadhana shivir and then we were packing the tents and then heavy rainfall hit us. We all had to take the shelter inside the tent. The most amazing thing was that whilst those two days when the sadhana was conducted there was no heavy rainfall but a drizzling rain and after the conclusion of the shivir heavy rains hit us. Is this her divine grace or coincidence?, I do not aspire to know the answer because some phenomena in life are just unexplainable. One can only use logic to those things that he has his control over and rest its all unknown mysteries.
                                     We wanted to finish this sadhana early so that we could reach our destination on time. After the heavy rainfall and when the weather showed us the green light we set our sails to the direction of our destination i.e the preparation of another similar eonic sadhana called "Maha Aghor Sadhana Shivir" which is to be conducted on the 12-13th of October.

Moksha Maha Sadhana Review

  Moksha Maha Sadhana Review (Excerpts form Kaulantakpeeth.net):
                  
The Dance of Freedom -Nataraja who is Shiv himself.
The "Moksh Maha Sadhana" i.e the third part of Shivatva sadhana and the last sadhana after Panch Kosh Gaman sadhana was successfully finished on 8-9th June at Lahul-Spiti valley on the banks of Chandra river and under the divine shade of Mount Mahadev. The sadhana was the long awaited for all those sadhaks who took Shivatva sadhana on Jan 2-3rd 2012 and Panch Kosh Gaman on 19-20th Sep 2012 as after it nothing remains for the sadhaks to experience because he becomes Shiva himself. We swinged both the ways of flaws and perfection at this shivir because some sadhaks didn't complete the prechanting of the entrance mantra given in the website so facing the troubles and difficulties were imminent and our guess were confirmed when we had to face a big trouble after reaching Lahul. It was the glacier that was standing between us and our venue. We had preinformed the DC of Lahul Spiti of Himanchal Pradesh of our sadhana being conducted at our given venue and with due permission from them we had driven our cars with our hopes of conducting the next big shivir but excavating the glacier took a wrong turn because they were cutting the glacier on the wrong end and the road did not become safe to drive through so the day before the initiation day we put our tents on the road in hurry and spent the night there and our fellow sadhaks had some altitude problems and were vomiting but due to extra care taken by the management and "Ishaputra-Kaulantak Nath" himself the team were able to make them feel better the next day. 
                               
           
Mahayogi Satyendra Nath Ji Maharaj in blue which respresents Moksha
  The very next day the road excavation couldn't be completed too so with the guidance of "Kaulantak Peethadeshwor Mahayogi Satyendra Nath Ji Maharaj" we set our tents just above the road and under the shade of Mount Mahadev and within hours we were able to start our first yagya and conclude it with no big fuss and the climate too was very favorable for us. It was sunny day outside and even more sunnier inside all the hearts of sadhaks that they were able to perform a sadhana as such with the lord of "Kaulantak Peeth" who himself is the lord of the land where we were performing the sadhana as based on siddha faith and we were all initiated to the divine sadhana of Maha Moksha in the noon and we were also making the yantra and decorating it with colors and at intervals "Kaulantak Nath" would allow the sadhaks to take pictures with him and also he would take the sadhaks for a walk uphill as the part of spending time with guru that was later revealed to us in the conclusion of the second day. The Bhairavi's with the help of our two esteemed Bhairav were cooking meals as per the rule of shivir it was one time dinner only. Everything was going good until the conclusion of the first day. "Kaulantak Nath" usually at the start or the conclusion of the first and second day starts his sermons so as to unveil the secrets of the given sadhana and also he clarifies the misconception relating to the sadhana and he expects the sadhaks to be quiet and to lend him his ears and there unwavering attention but our sadhaks were loosing patience and were seemingly disinterested on the sermons as they were busy gossiping amidst the warning that we had issued in our official web page and also in the shivir too. "Kaulantak Nath" at first controlled himself and then suddenly he stopped because this is a siddha tradition and when a siddha speaks, through him Shiva himself speaks because this is the lineage started by Shiva so the truth only smokes out of the pipe when there is oneness of a siddha with Shiva and an act of sadhaks like such is highly condemned by the Peeth any by fellow bhairavs who were participating too and "Ishaputra-Kaulantak Nath" politely disagreed when we again made the plea because such oneness happens at a particular instance and is not made. Because of this blunder the whole future generation of sadhaks were deprived of the golden opportunity to know about the Moksha sadhana and its divine meaning based on siddha's faith. This was one of the first drawbacks of this highly rated, much awaited and ever liberating sadhana known as "Maha Moksha Sadhana".

                                After the conclusion of the first day as usual we had our dinner and we went inside our tents for rest and we all woke up with the chantings of Astautarsatnamawali of Kaulantak Nath by one of our esteemed Bhairava. We all chanted it with great devotion and we went for a bath in the chilling water from the glaciers. We spent like more then an hour bathing, walking on the glaciers intoxicated by oneness with Shiva and with big chantings of "Har Har Mahadev" and singing Shiva's Hymns in full bliss. After this we started our second day of unlocking the mantra and then at the noon interval an extraordinary incident  took place, it was just a moment for some of us but for some it was once in a life time opportunity. He who followed Mahayogi and his footsteps to the top received shaktipat. Actually "Ishaputra-Kaulantak Nath" himself would take us all to a walk uphill but some sadhaks didn't follow him in spite of him waiting for the sadhaks . So, the sadhaks who followed got it as a gift. This was the best thing in all the shivirs till date that you get an extra diksha with the diksha of the given sadhana held and we resumed our unlocking process and  fire rituals  too. The another best thing about the sadhana was the formation of a rainbow circle around the sun making it the focal point of all the radius. I might be wrong but the rainbow formation around the sun according to Vajrayana Buddhism is sign of a good omen and Vajrayana is the part of Kaulachar and it was separated from its origin by Padmasambhava. So according to them it must have been a good luck. After that how could we conclude the 2nd day without worshiping the Yoginis. The Bhairavas made the dough out of flour and then made small oil candles and small idols of animals, snakes and human skull and then placed it in a patri(a big flat stone) and then at some distance from the shivir it was offered to the Yoginis and also the flag of Yoginis were erected on that place. After this it was the long awaited dinner time and then we slept giving way for the last day or the departing day. 

                     The third day we started the day with chantings of Astutarsatnamawali of "Kaulantak Peethadeshwor Mahayogi Satyendra Nath Ji Maharaj" and he taught us the pranayamas, asanas and some other secret  aspects of Kaula Guru worship, the way to do Aadesh and also a secret yoga which we are not allowed to disclose to anyone. We performed the hawana and then Mahayogi  asked all the sadhaks to remain inside the tent so that some videos for the shivir could be made in seclusion but when we were back we saw some sadhaks littering outside not heading the orders of Kaulantak Nath. He then got dismayed and furious because siddha lineage is the lineage of warriors and it goes forth from generation to generation with strict discipline and where the guru's word(Aadesh) is the supreme word and nothing penetrating it beyond and he would never had done such in the presence of his gurus and he expects us to do the same but as always there are always some black sheep's in every groups and in future the team shall try there best in not allowing an entree for those sadhaks who truly don't respect the siddha lineage and faith and those lacking the understanding of the essence of being a sadhak and his moral obligations to his fellow sadhaks and his guru. 

                                         The last part of the last day was the dip on river Chandra and it was the last part of the shivir because the "Maha Moksha Sadhana" is related with moon and this river has it's origin of Chandra lake which was hidden behind the hills at the opposite side of the shivir venue. "Ishaputra" first did some offerings to Shiva, Kurukulla, ancestors, Moon god. It was a brief offering and we along with "Kaulantak Nath" took the holy dip there and the water of the Chandra river is much more colder then the water of glacier itself because its formed due to the melting of blue ice. We did a group offering again and then we departed for Balichowki ashram so that we could narrowly escape the traffic at Rohtang pass but alas things would have gone our way as we were stuck 6 hours in the traffic and the weather did change too as out of nowhere the sunny day became misty and the sun and its rays were veiled by the mist and the climate became cold. We were simply thankful to Shiva for his blessings because had this taken place a day before it would have created a havoc in our sadhana ceremony but we were able to finish our sadhana  and then conclude it successfully. Shakespeare once put this words "All's well that ends well" and for me at this time and date and based on the circumstances i simply could't  agree more.



Nuggets of wisdom from this shivir: 

1)                   This is "Kaulantak Peeth" and he is "Kaulantak Peethadeshwor"and he is famously known as 'Mahayogi Satyendra Nath Ji Maharaj".The Peeth is solely of the Siddha tradition and lineage and that which happens here happens through the will of siddhas because siddhas have there own traditions and own ways of doing things. The siddha lineage differs from all the sect of spiritualism because it doesn't give priority of a guru sitting on his esteemed throne, preaching sermons and giving initiation. That is not the siddha's way. The siddha's way is based on walking on the footsteps of guru and having an unwavering belief on one's siddha guru. The siddha guru and his disciples should spend some time together as a part of there tradition because this solidifies the bond and when there is oneness of guru and a disciple then there isn't any initiation that wont unfold to the disciple because inside him his guru resides and it's not in disciples hand for the success of the sadhana but solely on the guru because its the power of guru and through his devotion the disciple he gets the power of his guru as Siddha Guru Gorakshnath in his sabar mantras has perfectly put the line "Meri bhakti guru ki shakti furo mantra ishwara uvacha" and "Ishaputra-Kaulantak Nath" had given us all the same opportunity to walk on his footsteps, to sleep, dine, chat with them but those who followed him got the "Maha Vijayana diksha" shaktipat and who didn't follow him missed one of the greatest gifts one could have ever got and the sadhaks don't have any room for complains because he had waited for all and some even returned half way too. The moral of this particular incident is that: Have a faith in your guru and follow him everywhere like a shadow and the great mysteries of sadhana will be disclosed by the guru.

2)                  "Ishaputra-Kaulantak Nath" made all the sadhaks walk with him on glaciers and under the glaciers, on the barren roads where the chilling cold waters of the snow and glaciers were flowing with the intention of teaching them the environment of the Himalayas and the feel of walking on those cold waters, the ways to take a dump on Himalayas and what to do after that and also the ways to adopt in the himalayan climate.  He was doing it for teaching purpose but at the end of the day he too got dismayed because the sadhaks couldn't understand his intentions behind his emotional display of tutoring them. Many didn't even bother to do as he wanted and those who followed him will be repaid because hard work in the path of guru never goes unpaid.So the moral of the story: Always try to understand the guru's feeling because he never desires any sadhaks to be left unanswered by his love and attention, he who knows this fact knows guru.

3)                     In siddha lineage and tradition the words of the guru is the wisdom itself. So when a guru says something its a wisdom and a knowledge in disguise. So to follow the will of the guru is the prime duty of the disciple because Kaulachar cannot be performed without a guru. The words of ethics on do's and dont's of sadhanas were posted on the official website and on  facebook too. We asked the sadhaks to read it thoroughly before joining the shivir. It was clearly mentioned when "Ishaputra-Kaulantak Nath" is talking all should keep silence because as mentioned earlier he doesn't speak but Shiva speaks through him in that oneness when he feels while giving the sermons so when a sadhak makes noise while gossiping then the oneness breaks and he won't be able to unfold the secrets of the sadhana. This was told repeatedly via website and also through the Bhairava's too but the sadhaks who often follows there mind seldom finds the shelter in gurus heart. This wasn't a good thing to happen especially after such warnings. So, we should all contemplate on this fact and in the upcoming shivir not disturb the Peeth's  work and deeply respect the tradition and Mahayogi's effort. The moral of this story:  A sadhak who often listens his minds seldom finds the shelter in his guru's heart.

The secrets behind Parad Vigyan

Parad Gutika on my palm

                          Parad Rasayan is the heart of Indian Alchemy. Parad means Mercury and its liquid in the room temperature and its one of the heaviest metal. Parad is an extraordinary element with the extraordinary application. It can be used for both spiritual and material fulfillment. It is used to trans mutate metals into gold and also to activate the kundalini, longetivity etc. But only Mercury itself ain't enough for all this. It needs a catalyst or extra factors to make it happen.
                          Today great things have been showed in the context of Parad and its uses. The parad gutika is one of them which when used properly can open the doors of miracles to the sadhaks. Longevity, to disappear etc. There is no difference between Parad Gutika and Parad Shivling because both process are same and the effect is same too. Its just that a same thing is called by two names and both have the same miracoulus power. There is much hype about Parad Alchemy( Rasayana) but few know the theory and principle behind it. People just think if they get a Parad and solidify it and worship it then everything will happen on its own which is a great hoax. Its not possible that way. There are certain aspects and elements working behind the anatomy of Parad. The whole universe is incorporated by two tatva and they are Shiv Tatva and Shakti tatva. Some might have more of a Shiv tatva and some might have more Shakti tatva but Parad is the only element according to siddha which has both the tatva equal. Shiv tatva is mainly related with spiritualism, moksh, spiritual upliftment while Shakti tatva is of materialistic gains, prosperity and luxury. After a great research the seers of India found that they could temper or increase and decrease the tatva accoriding to there wish through various use and the most easy being the use of medicines. There are some medicines which when mixed with Parad increases or decrease the tatva. There won't be any change in the shape and form but the tatva inside will increase and decrease. After the Parad is purified the medicine to increase or decrease the tatva is mixed as per ones wish and application. If one ones to make Parad Gutika and Parad Shivling to excel oneself in spiritualism then the medicines that increases the Shiv Tatva in Parad is used and vice versa. After that the Parad is heated and and after frequent checks it is solidified. The Parad gutika is then energised with Parad energise mantra and other mantras as one wishes and it is ready for use and for its extended use the Parad gutika and Parad Shivling is done abhisekh and tarpan for wish fullfilling jobs.
                  
Parad Gutika on the Banyan leaf for energising.
   Amidst all these the most important thing without the whole Rasayana fails is Raseswari Devi who herself is Ma Parvati. The whole universe is made of the same element and the element modified itself and became trees, animals, rocks etc. The very essence is called Rasa and Raseswari Devi is the shakti of the Rasa. The whole transmutation and other applicable use of Parad is incomplete without Raseswari Devi. The importance of Raseswari can be explained by the analogy of a light and a diamond. The diamond is the most precious jewel in the world and its valued because it shines. The diamond thus shines through the light passing on it and the light makes certain refraction angle with the diamond's surface and total internal reflection takes place resulting in the diamond to shine heavily. The diamond and the shine is noticed by all but the most subtle element that goes unnoticed is the light itself. Without the light there would be no diamond. Imagine would there be any value of diamond had it been darkness everywhere? The same is with Raseswari Devi. Its because of the Raseswari Devi the diamond like Parad shines and shows its uses. Without Raseswari Devi Parad is of no use. Its easy making a Parad Gutika and Parad Shivling but its of no use and will show no signs of success. The metal doesn't transmutate through Parad but through Raseswari Devi. If one becomes successful in Raseswari Sadhana then one doesn't need Parad to transmutate metals. He or she can transmutate a blade of grass into gold or any substance into gold.Such is the use of Raseswari Devi but people only run after Parad because they think Parad does all the trick by itself. So for one to be successful in Rasayana one needs to succeed first in Raseswari Sadhana and then try Parad Alchemy.
                    
Raseswari Sadhana with Parad Shivling
Before i conclude the whole post i would like to warn people to not try mercury haphazardly because Mercury takes the life forces away from the practisioner. Its said in Agama and Nigama that one who tempers Mercury haphazardly and without a proper guidance then he or she dies from heart attack or through other agents. To dispel and protect oneself from the ill effects of Mercury the worship of Swarna Bhairav is done and also other Goddess so that they can become the shield. The next time you try Parad please remember all the above that i have said because i performed it practically and am writting here and the 4 gutika shown in the pic is made by myself and also energised for my own use for spiritual upliftment.

Parad Vigyan- The Mercury Alchemy.

                          The Parad Vigyan or the Mercury Alchemy is the science brought forth to this world through Lord Shiv himself through tradition and lineages. The Indian term for alchemy is "Rasayana"(Rasa+yana). Rasa means Mercury and yana means the procedure. So Rasayana is the alchemy procedure carried through Parad or Mercury. Mercury is the metal in a liquid form and is also known as the sperm of Lord Shiva himself and it is also his favorite metal. Parad is the beloved metal of siddha too because the Nath and Siddha tradition of Indian spiritualism was started by Lord Shiva himself making him first Nath and Siddha and that lineage is still continued and has reached "Mahayogi Satyendra Nath Ji Maharaj" from Navanath and through 84 siddhas. "Ishaputra Kaulantak Nath" hails from Siddha lineage and he got this knowledge from his gurus. "Mahayogi Satyendra Nath Ji Maharaj" is the current chief of "Kaulantak Peeth", the Peeth is the oldest known Peeth started by Mahadev himself which boundary starts from the mountains of Russia passing along the Tora Bora range of Afghanistan surpassing the Hinglaj Devi Temple at Baluchistan, Pakistan, encompassing the whole Himalaya of Nepal and Bhutan, Mount Kailash and ending at the Himalayas of Burma. The whole Himalayan Mountain Range comes under Kaulantak Peeth and this Peeth harbours the ship of all knowledge ranging from ayurveda to alchemy, tantra to yoga, karma kanda to mantra etc.
                     The mystery behind Rasa and its etymology is that Rasayana is just not limited to alchemy and the endeavor behind is not about transmutation of metals into silver and gold, longetivity. These might be one of the reasons but the main concept behind it was the construction of the base element that pervades the whole universe and is responsible for all the reaction, construction and destruction of the whole universe and all its aspects. That base element is termed as Rasa and rasa incorporates Parad through which the whole act is performed. Rasayana is also popular in west as Alchemy. The hermits from places like Egypt, Rome, Yunan. China, Iran used to come to India to learn Alchemy and then study everything here and then go back to there places to carry out welfare works. This is the secretive knowledge of Siddhas and those days Siddhas were the rich hermits. Even the kings used to come to there hermitage and serve them and in return give the Siddhas used to give them golds and secret knowledges. Parad is used in many fields of both spiritualism and materialism. In materialism the transmutation of metals to gold and silver is carried and also in healing. There is a modern technique of healing diseases through the use of medical ashes. This medical ashes is made from the ashes of mercury and because of the Siddha first initiating it, it got its name as "Siddhapathy". In spiritualism it is used for the mysterious and secretive practice called "Mritak Uthapan Prayog" or "Resurrecting the dead". It is possible only through the use of Mercury. Its is also used in longetivity. There are many examples of siddhas who are still Mahachiranjivi and is residing in Himalayas. In the western society Artephius was an alchemist who was known for his longetivity and his records are his proof. It is also used for Kayakalpa meaning transforming from old age to being youth again. There are many other uses too. The western Alchemy bases itself on the pursuit of "Philosopher's stone" and in Indian spiritualism known as "Chintamani". The "Philosopher's stone" is used for the transmutation of metals into gold and silver. According to the sources the Philosopher's stone is more of a powder then a gem and even a small ounce  of it is capable of turning heaps amount of metals into gold and silver. The pursuit of "Philosopher's stone" was the main reason for many scientist of the world of those days to visit India to unlock the mysteries.
                               To conlude the post I can only offer praise for all the siddhas who have had this science preserved for this long. There are many pseudo gurus who teaches Rasayana without proper knowledge and through unknown traditions. Lord Shiva in agama and nigama has stated, "Those who teach and practice Rasayana without a capable guru and further teaches it unto others, the individual end is imminent." Parad is not the topic of haphazard practice but a known science which only unfolds throught gurus grace. "Mahayogi Satyendra Nath Ji Maharaj" is organising a shivir on "Raseshwari Sadhana Diksha and Parad Vigyan" on July 20-21st July and the allocated seats for sadhaks is already full and no seats available and we are surprised at people's keen interest on this topic. This particular science needs rejuvenation and reestablishment and we hope we find sadhaks who can carry the legacy of Siddhas in this day and age.
                 
                     
                                               

Raseshwari Sadhana Diksha


                                      


 In Indian spiritualism Ras means Mercury and Mercury is the power of Shiva.Shiva is Aghor himself and his favorite metal mercury is aghor like him. In India the Mercury alchemy comes under the science of Ras alchemy which is also called as Ras veda. Shiva is Rasheswar himself meaning "he who is the lord of Ras(mercury)". Rasheswari Devi is the shakti of Rasheswar. Since there is no difference between Rasheswar and his shakti Rasheswari so she is also termed as Parvati or Shakti. The Rasheswari sadhana is the base of Siddha Alchemy. Without going through this diksha one ain't eligible to perform alchemy and it needs a capable guru who can guide you and he/she should be from a known tradition and lineage. There might be other gurus too but "Mahayogi Satyendra Nath Ji Maharaj" is from a siddha lineage who is going to bestow Rasheswari Sadhana diksha and Achemy in his shivir through siddha lineage and also through Goddess Tara lineage and both tradition and lineage come under the esteemed lineage of Kaulantak Peeth and this Peeth is the oldest Peeth known which boundaries starts from the mountains of Russia passing through Tora Bora range of Afghanistan surpassing Hinglaj Temple in the Balochistan province of Pakistan and the whole mountain range of Nepal and Bhutan and India and enclosing Kailash Mountain and ending on the himalayas of Burma and Mahayogi Satyendra Nath Ji Maharaj is the current chief or the Peethadeshwar of Kaulantak Peeth. This peeth is the library and the laboratory of all hidden knowledge of the world from rituals to alchemy, from theism to atheism, yoga to tantra and many more.
                                  Through this diksha one is connected with the lineage where the alchemy started and the knowledge passed through the unbroken chain of the siddhas. There are lot of uses of Parad or Mercury. In the ancient Egyptian tradition of Alchemy the main purpose of alchemy was to reach Philosopher stone also known as Chintamani in Indian Alchemy, the transmutation of metals to gold and silver and finding a way for longetivity. The Egyptian alchemy bases itself on Indian Alchemy because people from many countries came to India to learn this science and having perfected it they use to go to there country and perform miracles and carry out welfare works. Its the Siddhas of Kaulantak Peeth who taught them this science because Lord Shiva is the first siddha and 84 Siddhas are the expansion of his lineage. Through Parad one can also carry out "Mritak uthapan prayog" meaning resurrecting the dead and it has also been the secret formula of all Indian magician and the secret prop of the famous secretive rope trick too.
                             The uses mentioned above is just a tip of an iceberg. There are lots and lots of uses of Parad Alchemy and Rasheswari Sadhana is the first basic step to the big journey of Indian Alchemy. Without this diksha nothing in Alchemy would yield because if you don't put cement between the bricks a castle wont be build. So to get yourself started in this science please first take the Rasheshwari Sadhana Diksha and get yourself started.

Tara Mahavidya: A brief synopsis of the complete Goddess


प्रत्यालीढ़ पदार्पिताग्ध्रीशवहृद घोराटटहासा परा
खड़गेन्दीवरकर्त्री खर्परभुजा हुंकार बीजोद्भवा,
खर्वा नीलविशालपिंगलजटाजूटैकनागैर्युता
जाड्यन्न्यस्य कपालिके त्रिजगताम हन्त्युग्रतारा स्वयं,

 This is the most popular hymn for the goddess for worshiping her and she fulfills the boons of the sadhak who recites this verse. She is femininity prevalent in a human being. Ma Tara is the goddess of wisdom. She is equivalent to 1000 Saraswati combined. Her body color is blue that's why she is called "Neel Saraswati" too. There are many explanations on her form and her origin. If you go with the transcendental approach for that is going beyond forms then at the start of the creation there was nothing but a dark force and known as  KALI. From the darkness a blue light emerged and started to give the light to the universe and this blue light is known as tara. In simple form and in forms she is known to be a form of Ma Parvati. When once lord Shiva drank the halahal poison he stopped it in the neck and because of the effect of the poison lord Shiva fainted and Ma parvati took the form of a fly and went inside the nostrils of Lord Shiva and neutralized the poison and then she earned the sobriquet of "Mahanila" from Lord Shiva.
                  She is the second Mahavidya and her Shiva is called "Akshobhya rishi". She is also worshipped in Vajrayana sect of Tibetan Buddhism which has its root on Indian tantra.The main reason for her being accepted in the Tibetan buddhism is that she is the goddess of Atheism. She makes the sadhaks of her atheist so she is accepted and worshipped by the Tibetan buddhist. She holds a blue lotus in her hand which symbolizes fire tatwa and also the symbol of moksha, sword in another hand which has an eye in it which means the wise use of any forms of power, the skull in her hand has lot of meanings but the most common is the feeling of never ending desires, and one who perfects this mahavidya is well versed in poetry. She adds the fuel to the fire of the chores of peoples daily life. Skull in hand also symbolizes this universe and ones own skull which encloses the inner universe. The divine play, the whole creation and the destruction happens in this universe similarly the whole human body mechanism of being born to dieing then transmigrating is related to the inner human skull and Devi holding a skull in her hand means she is the power who controls this universe. She further holds a  scissor in her hand symbolising her blessing to cut through the unwanted sanskaras and only cultivating the characters need for an individual for spiritual upliftment or in transdental  approach its more like the aphorism "survival of the fitest". Devi ensures that in this constant tendency of change she ensures the most fit for the universe is kept and others destroyed. She is also shown standing in the pratyalidha asana on a corpse which means the warrior pose and if ones subtracts the TARA tatwa for Shiva then he becomes shava(corpse).
                    
   The aspect that makes her different from other mahavidyas is that she is not achieved through dakshina or rajas panth but Vama Marga. She is purely tamasic and only through vama marga, MahaChinachar  and through the use of panch makar i.e (mans(meat), matsya(fish), maithun(sexual intercource), mudra (gesture) and madira(alcohol) she is achieved. There is a story of Rishi Vashista and Rishi Vishwamitra trying everything and leaving no stones unturned to perfect her sadhana and still they dont 
succeed and in frustation Rishi Vashista curses the Mahavidya that nobody will ever perfect her this is why
her previous mantra used to be (ओम ह्रीं त्रीं हुं फट ) and later they made (त्रीं) as (स्त्रीं) and used (स) as utkilan and the new mantra became (ओम ह्रीं  स्त्रीं हुं  फट ). The two Rishis then went to Chin pradesh and did the sadhana through Vama marga and succeeded and were criticized hugely by other vedic rishis. Her grace makes the sadhak eloquent in poetry and this being the sadhana of the mind and the sahasrar chakra, her sadhak is bestowed with intelligence and wisdom too. The other story that i encountered about Tara Devi was at a fair when a local priest told me that Maharishi Lomesh did her sadhana and through her grace he became Mahachiranjivi. It is told that he is such a mahachiranjivi that after an eon passes then he sheds just a body hair. Through her grace, what is that, that can't be achieved in this material world.

Kaulantak Peeth has some good insight on her and some of my word are the excerpts from it and is used with due permission. Feel free to check it
