Becoming Shiva Meditation – Sounding the 12 Sanskrit Vowels with the 12 Chakra System


In this session, we will practice working with Verse 30 from the Vijnana Bhairava Tantra, a 1000+ year old collection of Meditation Techniques from the Trika Lineage of Kashmir Shaivism. In this lineage there are 12 Main Chakras or energy centers in the body along the central energy channel known as the Sushumna Nadi, running thru the middle of the body from the perineum to above the crown of the head. We will Intone and use the 12 Sanskrit Vowels sequentially starting at the Base Chakra at the perineum and successively moving our imagination and visualization thru each energy center in this Guided Meditation. 

I am using Christopher Hareesh Wallis’s translation of Verse 30 from the Vijnana Bhairava Tantra for this practice. He is the author of “Tantra Illumination” and “The Recognition Sutras” and an internationally known Sanskrit authority of Tantric Meditation Practices as well as a Practioner Teacher.

It is said that anyone of the meditation practices of the Vijnana Bhairava Tantra can be a transformative and enlightening practice. This particular practice assumes you have a certain focus and experience to really integrate its powerful energetic experience. You may have to work with it over time to develop the meditation chops to be comfortable with it. I made this podcast for those of you who have the determination and interest for it as well as some other students in a study group that I am working with under the tutelage of Christopher Wallis.
