Description

From the Jacket

Modern civilization is a marvel of technological accomplishment, material wealth, and communication systems that have shrunk the world to a nutshell. Despite the wealth and ease of modern life, people are not satisfied and are unaware of the inner bliss humanity may experience arousing the powerful energy latent in each human being.

This book by Paramahamsa Prajnanananda explains the true sacred meaning and hidden truths of tantric meditation, one of the most ancient and highest spiritual sciences. He reveals Tantra's inner meanings in the light of his philosophical knowledge, which arises from his own direct inner experience and wisdom. His mystic, non-sectarian and universal approach, as well as the wisdom he imparts, make him a binding and bridging force between East and West.

Paramahamsa Prajnanananda is a teacher of Kriya Yoga, an ancient system meditation. He is the disciple and successor of Paramahamsa Hariharananda. A truly powerful and loving teacher, author, and speaker on world religion, well-versed in the scriptures of the East and West, he combines a divine compassion for humanity with his love for God and his mastery of complex philosophical thoughts. On his 39th birthday, the title of Paramahamsa, the highest title reserved for monks who attain the summit of realization, was conferred upon him by his loving and divine master.

He sets an example to one and all on how to realize the connection between ourselves and the Divine; how to surrender and unfold our infinite potential to its fullest in order to be or become anything we wish, without losing sight of the highest goal in life. Thus, his disciples are encouraged to follow his exemplary life and his teachings with enthusiasm and faith.

His loving guidance and deep compassion have won him the devotion and faith of countless disciples around the world whose lives he has transformed.

Back of the Book

With the passage of time, the real meaning of Tantra was misunderstood. From a highly evolved spiritual science Tantra was demeaned as a tool for magical or occult power or an enhancer of sensual enjoyment.

Tantra is none of these. It is an ancient discipline that provides a vast learning, a deep understanding of life, and a methodology to attain Self-realization.

Jnana Sankalini Tantra is a beautiful and meaningful dialogue between Lord Shiva and his consort, Parvati. In tantric practices, both Shiva and Parvati are worshipped together, since the former represents consciousness and the latter, in the form of shakti, symbolizes energy.

In tantric meditation, inner bliss can be obtained by arousing energy latent in humankind, and uniting it with Shiva. Tantra uplifts consciousness in order to embrace the cosmic spirit.

About the Author

Paramahamsa Prajnanananda, the current head of the Kriya institutions started by Paramahamsa Hariharananda, has taken on his Master's mission of bringing the ancient secret teachings within the reach of common people who are thirsting for spiritual knowledge. Paramahamsa Prajnanananda was born in 1960 in the village of Pattamundai in Orissa, India. He has always been a sincere seeker of truth. After a childhood filled with prayer and a youth enriched by education joined with meditation, the former Triloki Dash became a caring teacher as a professor of Economics and guided and inspired many of his students spiritually.

As a college student, through an unquenchable thirst for God, he met many saints and visited many ashrams in the Himalayas, looking for a spiritual guide. While still a student, he met his master Paramahamsa Hariharananda, who initiated him into the path of Kriya Yoga. Brahmachari Triloki Dash was later initiated into the glorious path of Sannyas by his master, becoming Swami Prajnanananda Giri. On August 10, 1998, on his 39th birthday, the title of Paramahamsa, the highest title reserved for monks who attain the summit of realization, who are inspired and divine teachers, guides and saints, was conferred upon him by his loving and divine master Paramahamsa Hariharananda,

A truly powerful and extremely loving teacher, author and speaker on world religion, well versed in the scriptures of the East and West, he combines a divine compassion for humanity with his love for God and his mastery of complex philosophical thoughts. His vast knowledge and his oratory and intellectual skills are fully utilized in interpreting deep philosophical thoughts in the light of modern science and psychology. His metaphorical interpretation of the scriptures is very unique. Using Kriya 'Yoga as a reference point and an interpretative tool, Prajnananandaji manages to reveal the hidden truths contained in the most complex passages of the sacred texts in ways which make the meanings relevant and helpful in our daily lives. .

With thought-provoking statements and revelatory explanations, quotations from the Bible and the Bhagavad Gita, and incidents from the lives of great souls, Paramahamsa Prajnanananda distils the wisdom of the ages into clear, relevant instructions on leading a moral and spiritual life in the world today. Without being overly pedantic, yet incorporating the texts of countless scriptures within his lectures, Paramahamsa Prajnananandaji does what most religious teachers stop short of doing and what most of us are thirsting for: he gives step by step methods for achieving self-realization. Gearing his lectures to the modern world of East and West, peppering them with colourful anecdotes, in his humorous yet compassionate style, with constant words of encouragement to those who must continue to live in the world, he guides disciples with the love of a mother. To those who are baffled by the vastness of ancient scriptural wisdom, the clear, concise and immensely helpful hints and guidance he provides, helps to make sense of book learning.

The power of his teachings lies in their simplicity and direct relevance to our lives. He teaches one of the simplest truths of the scriptures. One needs not only the desire for salvation, but also the guidance of the Guru and the regular practice of meditation and then and only then comes realization.

Paramahamsa Prajnanananda teaches only one lesson: the lesson of love Through not only the study of scriptures, and the practice of meditation, but through every action and every breath, he urges us to realize that we are all divine and to/achieve that blissful state of divine love and contentment, through basic self-discipline and the practice of simple yogic principles .

His loving guidance and deep compassion have won him the devotion and faith of countless disciples around the world whose lives he has transformed.
