Vigyan Bhairav Tantra – Daily Meditations
A new meditation daily from Vigyan Bhairav Tantra, the original and still the best guide to meditation, created by Siva five thousand years ago. This list of meditations is in the form of a series of brief verses which could be memorised, inscribed on tablets and temple walls, and passed down orally through the generations.
In Siva’s list of meditations there is a suitable technique for each and every person, and everyone can find, in these pages, a method which will work for them. Siva has tried hard to make meditation accessible to many different types of people, in the great tradition of Indian spiritual Masters who have devoted considerable effort to the promotion and popularisation of meditation.
Meditation, a technique created in India, perhaps by Siva, is a feature of all the Indian religions. While it may seem mundane in some senses, it is very helpful for spiritual seekers to have an actual technique which will assist them on their paths. Taoism and other spiritual traditions seem harder to grasp because of a lack of fundamental techniques, relying only on vague teachings which point to Truth but offer little help to those who fail to understand the elusive logic of the Masters.
We continue a new cycle through this remarkable book, one verse at a time, with the usual emphasis on the practical nature of Vigyan Bhairav Tantra, a list of techniques to be practised and not just an ancient source of poetic and spiritual inspiration.
