Vijnana Bhairava Tantra

Both void & manifestation Spanda: life pulse vibration Expanding & contracting Concealing & revealing Stupefying & illuminating Separating & uniting Shiva’s self luminescence In playful innocence Creating a pulse of separation Culminating in divine union Paths four for liberation All found in the void of cessation Krama: the descent & rise Resulting in joyful surprise Or Pratyabhijna: re-cognition Upon ego delusion dissolution Whilst Kaula: mukti with bhukti Embrace & release in continuity Doing nothing Spanda: resonation With the omnipresent Ohm vibration Shiva appears upon the earth Shakti accompanying as his consort Both one as Ardhnarishwar indivisible Render the 112 agamas plain & simple That for those souls seeking renuion The path be clear without confusion This preamble given we yet need education About the basic mind-body construction First the purpose Of this circus Descending to rise to fulfil the potential Love in love with love as the ultimate miracle Father wishing that the son be as He Striving to become strong and mirrorlessly see Being absolute and illumined how may we play Unless immersed in limitations that make us sway Thus Shiva the magician manifests maya illusion Layering it with five veils to keep Himself in delusion Himself? Yes; for God alone exists and nothing else is All that we see & know & feel is His own elixirous fizz The first veil being limitation in time Bound by the linear periodic chime The second confinement within a boundary Limitation of space being also illusionary Third to fifth restricted will, knowledge & power Bondage to illusion self-blocking the bliss shower Yet what is manifested from perfection is perfection Thus concealed in mind-body is innate self-illumination The earth vehicle an interface ephemeral Within which pulsates the divine eternal As the seed of the ultimate having propensity for expansion The lifetron searches instinctively to reclaim bliss elation However senses five active are all externalised Along with lower mind in doership having everything analysed The secret being that the aspect perfect throbbing within Is the voice of conscience steering us away from sin The sin being nothing other than self ignorance In opting for transience instead of our eternal presence All the above known from different scriptures Being in delusion we are now our shadowy caricature Shiva in compassion then does reveal the 112 meditations Each of which may grant us here & now instant liberation
