Some esoterists (with tendencies to oriental esotericism) who traveled in the east investigated the Asian continent and arrived at the conclusion that in Tibet as well as in India, Tantra is the only truly practical school.
Many ashrams exist in the sacred land of the Vedas. They practice and study Yoga within these ashrams; however, the most serious ashrams are exclusively those where the Tantric teaching is abundant.
In the Hindustani markets, studious travelers can find marvelous Tantric books like Kama Kalpa and Kama Sutra. These books are illustrated with splendid photographs related to certain sacred sculptures and bas-reliefs of their temples. [Note: He says elsewhere that these texts and photographs are often adulterated and therefore contain many practices of negative Tantra].
A careful examination of those photographs allows us to collect very interesting information about Tantric Maithuna (Sexual Yoga).
The Tantric type of Hatha Yoga is extraordinary and leads the esoterist to the realization of the Innermost Self. However, Hatha Yoga without Tantra is like a garden without water.
The Hindu esoteric school of Laya Yoga with its famous Laya-Kriya Tantric sadhana is marvelous, by all means, and leads the neophytes to the realization of the Innermost Self.
If Yogananda would have accepted matrimony, it is clear that his Guru would have given him the complete Kriya.
An in depth Tantra exists in Chinese (Ch’an) Buddhism and also in Japanese Zen. It is lamentable that many Orientalists are content with the mere exterior cortex of Buddhism.
The medullar bone of esoteric Buddhism and of Taoism is Tantra, Maithuna (Sexual Yoga).
The Tantric practitioners from secret Tibet and sacred India practice the positive Sexual Yoga; this is to connect the Lingam-Yoni without the ejaculation of the Ens Seminis.
The Tantric Gurus of Tibet and Hindustan are very strict. Before the male and female Yogi couple has the right to practice the Tantric Sadhana (a sexual position which is very special for the sexual connection among the Tantric practitioners), they first must become experts in the exercises of Laya-Kriya.
Frankly, we cannot and must not deny that the Kama Kalpa teaches many Tantric sadhanas; however, here we only cite the one in which the male is seated in Padmasana (in the Buddhic style, simply with his legs crossed in the oriental style) and practices the sexual union with his female Yogi.
Thus, the female Yogi initiate has to sit on top of the legs of her male Yogi, and skillfully crosses her legs in such a way that the trunk of her male Yogi is enveloped by them.
An interchange of caresses between the man and the woman is previously required in order to perform the sexual connection of the Lingam-Yoni during this Tantric sadhana, thus the woman finally absorbs the phallus.
This Tantric connubial practice demands an absolute quietude and mental silence in order to avoid the tenebrous intervention of the pluralized “I.”
Strong electromagnetic currents exuberantly flow in those instants of supreme voluptuousness; thus the couple enters into Ecstasy or Samadhi.
A Guru directs this esoteric work; he makes strong magnetic strokes on the coccyx of both man and woman with the purpose of awakening the electronic solar fire, the igneous serpent of our magical powers.
“The coitus interruptus,” the restrained sexual impulse, makes the sexual energy of the Third Logos to inwardly and upwardly return throughout the canals of Ida and Pingala.
Maithuna originates within the coccyx, close to the Triveni of the microcosmic human being, an extraordinary contact between the solar and lunar atoms of the seminal system.
The advent of the fire is the outcome of the contact between the solar and lunar atoms of the seminal system.
The Gnostic Tantric sadhana is very simple. During the Tantric act, man and woman practice in the normal or ordinary sexual position; what is important is to withdraw from the sexual act before the spasm in order to avoid the ejaculation of their semen.
I.A.O. is the Tantric mantra of excellence. The letter “I” reminds us of Ignis, the fire. The letter “A” is the aqua, the water. The letter “O” signifies Origum, the Spirit. I. A. O. must be chanted during the practice of Maithuna.
It is very interesting that the sexual gonads are esoterically governed by Uranus, the planet of Aquarius. Uranus was a divine King from primeval Atlantis. Uranus reminds us of Ur-anas, the primordial fire and water. This is equivalent to the establishment of the first luni-solar cult of the androgynous “IO,” in other words, the apparition of the astrological Chaldean; therefore, Uranus, the Asura-maya, the first Atlantean, is factually the first revealer of the sexual mysteries.
One has to descend into the Ninth Sphere (sex) in order to work with the primordial fire and the water, origin of worlds, beasts, human beings and Gods. Every authentic White Initiation begins there.
The advent of the fire is the most extraordinary cosmic event. The fire transforms us radically.
It is worth remembering the chaos of the ancient, sacred fire of Zoroaster, or the Atash-behran of the Parsis, the fire of Hermes, the fire of Helmes of ancient Germans (do not mistake Hermes with Helmes).
Let us remember the flashing lightning of Cibele, the torch of Apollo, the flame of the altar of Pan, the imperishable fire in the Temple of Apollo, and in the Temple of Vesta; the fiery flame in the helmet of Pluto, the shining sparks on the hats of the Dioscuri, on the head of the Gorgons, on the helmet of Pallas, and on the Caduceus of Mercury.
Other representations of the advent of the fire are the Egyptian Ptah-Ra, the Greek Cataibates Zeus (who descended from Heaven to Earth in accordance with Pausanias); likewise, the Pentecostal tongues of fire and the flaming bush of Moses (this is very similar to the burning tunal which brought about the founding of Mexico). Also the column of fire in the Exodus, the imperishable lamp of Abraham. Moreover, the eternal fire of the bottomless abyss or Pleroma, the fulgent vapors of the Oracle of Delphi, the sidereal light of the Rosicrucian-Gnostics, the Akash of the Hindustani adepts, the Astral Light of Eliphas Levi, the aura and fluid of magnetizers, the Od of Reichembach, the psychod and the ectenic force, the thury that is analogous to the highest hypnotic states of Rochas and Ochorowist, the rays of Blondot and many others, like the psychic force of Sergeant Cox, the atmospheric magnetism of some naturists, Galvanism, and in sum, electricity. These examples are nothing more than different names for the unlimited number of manifestations of that mysterious Proteus that has been named the Archaeus of the Greeks.
The ascent of the sacred fire degree by degree through the Sushumna canal is very slow and difficult. Any single ejaculation of the semen is enough in order for the fire to descend one or more spinal vertebrae in accordance with the magnitude of the fault.
Jesus the great Kabir said:
The disciple must not allow himself to fall, because the disciple who consents in falling, must fight very hard afterwards in order to recuperate what he has lost.
The Maithuna, Sexual Yoga, Gnostic Tantra, can only be practiced between a man and a woman who are legitimately constituted as spouses.
White Tantra forbids its male adepts and affiliates to practice Maithuna with many women. White Tantra forbids the Gnostic sisters to practice Maithuna with different men. They must only practice sexual magic with their own spouse.
Within the perpetual snow of the millenarian Tibet, full of so many traditions, there exist diverse Black Tantric schools.
Miserable will be the one who affiliates himself to those tenebrous schools.
It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and be cast into the sea. - Luke 17:2
The fundamental, basic objective of the Black Tantric schools is the development of the abominable Kundabuffer Organ (the tail of Satan).
White Sexual Yoga teaches that the igneous serpent of our magical powers awakens with the contact of the solar and lunar atoms of the seminal system in the Triveni, close to the coccyx, in order to initiate its march inward and upward through the medullar canal.
However, the black yogis from the Drukpa clan never perform the contact of the solar and lunar atoms inside the organism; they always do it outside the organism.
These black yogis (Asura Sambhava) commit the crime of ejaculating the semen (Shuhra) during the Maithuna. They do this in order to mix their semen with feminine Raja. Thus, this is how they achieve the contact of the solar and lunar atoms within the same woman’s yoni.
Undoubtedly, the most difficult for these Red Hat Bons and Drukpas is the reabsorbing of the seminal liquid after having ejaculated it. [Editor: The author later retracted this statement about the Bons.]
A certain terribly malignant psychic type of force exists in this reabsorbing process.
Incorrectly applied, the Vajroli Mudra (in combination with their mental force) allows these Red Hat Bons and Drukpas to absorb their spilled seminal liquor through their urethra.
During ordinary sexual contact, the intellectual animal spills millions of Solar atoms of very high voltage. These are immediately replaced by billions of Satanic atoms from the secret enemy, and these are collected from within the atomic infernos of the human being by means of the process of contraction (orgasm) of the sexual organs after the coitus.
When the semen is not spilled, then the Solar atoms return inward and upward through Ida and Pingala. Then the Solar atoms extraordinarily multiply in quantity and quality.
However, the spilled semen (which the Black Tantrikas reabsorb through their urethra by extracting it from within the vagina) has in fact already converted itself into a frightful accumulator of Satanic atoms.
When these types of abnormal Satanic atoms intend to rise up to the Golgotha of the Father (the brain), they violently are cast down against the coccyx by the three Akashic breaths that work in Ida, Pingala, and Shushumna.
These types of seminal malignant atoms are precipitated through Ida and Pingala. They violently struggle in order to reach the brain; however, all of their efforts are useless because the three Akashic breaths cast them down against that region of the coccyx where a malignant atom has its habitat, and also the power to place the abominable Kundabuffer Organ into activity.
Within any ordinary person, the igneous serpent of our magical powers remains enclosed within the coccygeal center; it is coiled up in a marvelous way three and a half times.
We convert ourselves into Angels when the serpent rises through the medullar canal. However, we convert ourselves into terribly malignant lunar demons when the serpent descends, when the serpent precipitates from the coccyx downwards into the atomic infernos of the human being.
The rising serpent is the Kundalini. The falling serpent is the abominable Kundabuffer Organ
When the serpent is rising throughout the medullar canal, it is the bronze serpent that healed the Israelites in the wilderness. Yet, the falling serpent is the tempting serpent of Eden, the terrible serpent Python with seven heads that was writhing in the mud of the earth and that Apollo furiously hurt with his darts.
The abominable Kundabuffer Organ confers onto the Black Tantric magicians terribly malignant psychic powers (siddhis).
The abominable Kundabuffer Organ can never open the seven apocalyptic churches of the book of Revelation (which are the seven vital centers of the dorsal spine), because it can never succeed in rising through the medullar canal.
However, the abominable Kundabuffer Organ can place the antitheses of the seven churches into activity. The antitheses are seven malignant centers or seven tenebrous chakras of the lower abdomen.
Muslims affirm that the Inferno has seven gates, and that these exist in the lower abdomen. The abominable Kundabuffer Organ has the power of opening those seven gates.
To develop the abominable Kundabuffer Organ and to place into activity the seven infernal chakras of the lower abdomen is in fact equivalent to converting ourselves into that filthy beast with seven heads and ten horns upon which is seated the great Harlot (humanity), whose number is 666.
Those who commit the crime of developing the abominable Kundabuffer Organ divorce themselves from their immortal spiritual triad “Atman-Buddhi-Manas” and sink forever into the Infernal Worlds.
Kundalini is a compound word: Kunda reminds us of the abominable Kundabuffer Organ, and lini is indeed an Atlantean word which signifies “ended.”
Therefore, the Pentecostal Fire rising through the medullar canal signifies that the abominable Kundabuffer Organ comes to an end.
The fire of the Holy Spirit ascending throughout the medullar canal opens the church of Ephesus (coccygeal chakra), opens the church of Smyrna (prostatic or uterine chakra), opens the church of Pergamus (umbilical chakra), opens the church of Thyatira (chakra of the heart), opens the church of Sardis (laryngeal chakra), opens the church of Philadelphia (frontal chakra), opens the church of Laodicea (lotus of one thousand petals), and the abominable Kundabuffer Organ comes to an end.
In fact, the damned serpent, the Luciferic fire, the tail of Satan, opens the seven antithetic infernal churches of the lower abdomen.
The ascending fire confers onto the Innermost, the Spirit, powers over Prithvi, the element earth, in the church of Ephesus. It confers powers over Apas, the water, in the church of Smyrna. It confers power over Tejas, the fire, in the church of Pergamus. It confers power over Vayu, the air, in the church of Thyatira. It confers power over Akash, the ether, in the church of Sardis. It confers power over the light with the eye of Shiva in the church of Philadelphia, and it confers the union with the Innermost in the church of Laodicea.
Even when the abominable Kundabuffer Organ, the descending fire, gives the black yogi certain siddhis (magical powers intimately related with the seven infernal chakras from the lower abdomen) it also converts him into an inhabitant of the Subterranean World, into a slave of the elements.
In the Western World, the left-hand adepts have established many schools of Black Tantra. Such tenebrous organizations display sublime titles.
We know the case of a certain great initiate who founded a school of White Tantra before disincarnating; unfortunately, he committed the mistake of leaving his son (an inexperienced young man) as General Director. Thus, this naïve youngster (without any true esoteric experience) soon allowed himself to be cheated by certain Black Tantric adepts and concluded by publicly teaching Black Tantra.
The outcome of all of this was frightful, because some members of this brotherhood, also inexperienced, accepted the Black Tantric teachings and ended up converting themselves into terribly malignant demons.
Sex is a stone of stumbling, and a rock of falling; sex is a chief cornerstone, elect, precious.
We must never forget the words of Peter, the Master of Maithuna. Peter warned us against the false prophets and false masters (who in disguise and with sublime and ineffable false appearances) introduce many destructive heresies, much Black Tantra, and pernicious practices.Beloved Gnostic brothers and sisters, follow the straight path, the path of perfect chastity, the path of absolute sanctity, and great sacrifice for our fellowmen.
If we carefully observe the symbolic Caduceus of Mercury, we will discover with mystical astonishment that the two serpents that are entwined around its holy pole form the holy eight.
Ida and Pingala entwined around the dorsal spine are indeed the perfect eight. Joyful be the one who comprehends the profound mysteries of the holy eight.
The number eight placed horizontally is the sign of the infinite. The eight has the image of a clepsydra. The succession of time in different cycles can be indicated with the eight; each cycle (or circle of the number eight) is without a doubt the continuation of the other.
The spiral of life exists within the holy eight. The evolving and devolving processes are always performed in a spiral form.
The fire of Phlegethon and the water of Acheron cross within the Ninth Sphere, forming the symbol of the infinite.
The double current with which one must work in the Great Work (in order to attain the realization of the Innermost Self) is wisely represented in the mysterious Eighth Key of Basil Valentine. This is a variation of the Caduceus, and naturally it symbolizes the Mercury of secret philosophy; the marvelous properties of sulfur and the productive fecundity of salt are united extraordinarily within this Mercury. Thus, this is how the mystical connubial of two luminaries is performed in three worlds.
The world and the Superworld are marvelously entwined with the holy eight. The Underworld and the world are entwined with the holy eight.
The superior circle of the holy eight is a living representation of the human brain. The inferior circle is hidden within the mystery, in order to symbolize the cup of Hermes within which the Mercury of secret philosophy, the Ens Seminis is contained.
It has been wisely stated onto us that the heart-temple is precisely situated at the point where the fire of Phlegethon and the water of Acheron cross, forming the sign of the infinite.
The struggle is terrible; brain against sex, sex against brain, and the most terrible is that of heart against heart. You know this.
The sign of the infinite, within which the brain, heart, and sex of the Genie of the Earth is represented, is discovered by every esoterist within the interior of the planetary globe in the Ninth Circle.
The bodies of all creatures that live upon the Earth, from the most insignificant microbe until the human being, are found organized upon this archetypical base of the holy eight.
The eight Kabirs [Cabiri, Kabeiroi], those powerful, semitic, ineffable, and terribly divine Gods (who were later worshiped by the Greeks and Romans, and whose principal sanctuary was found always in Samothrace) are intimately related with the holy eight, with the sacred symbol of the infinite.
The eight Kabirs are the children of Ephestus or Vulcan and an adorable daughter of Proteus. They were born from the sacred fire (that manifests itself within the terrible profundities of the Earth) by the forging action of Proteus upon that universal substance that naturally has the property of taking any form.
These eight Kabirs are the fundamental intelligences of this Nature. They are the extraordinary regents of the great mysteries of life and death.
According to a very ancient esoteric tradition, one of those eight Kabirs was assassinated by one of his own brothers; however, later on he was resuscitated with the help of Hermes. This reminds us of the symbolic death and resurrection of Hiram, Osiris, and Jesus that must be comprehended in depth by the M. M.
The holy eight is therefore the base and the living foundation of the Great Work. If someone violates the scientific rules and principles contained within the symbol of the infinite, they will totally fail in the Great Work.
Whosoever wants to successfully work in the Magisterium of Fire must never spill the cup of Hermes (must not spill the semen) because they will fail in the Great Work.
The double current of fire and water must be exactly crossed in the Ninth Sphere in order to form the symbol of the infinite.
If the alchemist loses the water, meaning if the alchemist commits the error of ejaculating the semen, then the crossing of the two currents is impossible.
In the hard battle of brain against sex and sex against brain, the brain loses the battle most of the time.
The intimate battles of the heart usually lead the alchemists towards final failure.
A Greek fable tells us the tale of Sisyphus the Colossus, who by carrying a big boulder on his back intends once again to reach the summit of the mountain. However, his attempts always fail because just when he is about to place the stone at the right point of his desired goal, the stone always falls into the depths of the precipice.
Whosoever spills the cup of Hermes once in a while, whosoever at times does not spill the semen, and then later comes to spill it, violates the law of the Holy Kabirs and converts himself into a Gray Tantric adept.
In this world of Samsara, there exist evasiveness and false justifications for many things. Thus, this is how Gray Tantra also has its followers and its doctrine.
Any esoterist traveller who himself proposes to perform an in depth investigation among the secret schools of the Asian continent will verify for himself the crude and painful reality of Gray Tantra.
Tantra exists in all of Asia and is very abundant in the diverse schools of Theravada (Hinayana), Mahayana, Ch’an, Zen, Tantric Buddhism, etc.
The intellectual animals always find evasiveness and false justification for all of their weaknesses. Therefore, it does not surprise us that even within these self-exalted and dignified schools of Zen, Tantric Buddhism, and others, much ballast of Gray Tantra is found.
It is lamentable that many disoriented instructors (from those oriental schools) offer valuable Sexual Yoga techniques and practices without ever comprehending the fundamental aspect of Tantra, that being the urgent necessity of never committing the crime of spilling the semen during your whole life.
Some sects of Persian origin existed in old Europe (such as the famous Manicheans) who practiced White Tantra or Coitus Interruptus; they called it Karezza, which is a word that has Persian origins.
The Medieval Knights also practiced White sexual magic in the Donoi.
The alchemists who work with all the principles and laws of the holy eight Self-realize in depth, and they convert themselves into Hierophants.
Every authentic esoterist knows very well that the symbol of the infinite is equal to the pentalpha, the famous star of five points.
Every esoterist knows very well that the eight Kabirs are found intimately related with the eight winds. Boreas, the wind of the north, was considered a raptor of youngsters. Noto or Austro, the wind of the south, dragged the tempests and the clouds. Cephiro, the wind of the west of the world, was venerated as the God of spring. Euro or Vulturno, at times dry, at times humid, was always venerated in winter.
Ancient sages never forgot Caecias the Greek, the famous, the northeastern wind. The ancient Hierophants also never forgot Apelites, the southeasten wind. Neither had they forgotten Lips, the southwestern wind, nor Schiron, the northwestern wind.
The work with the Philosophical Stone, the eight steps of Yoga, are exclusively for those who respect the principles and laws of the holy eight, and never those of the henchmen of Black or Gray Tantra.Quoted from The Doomed Aryan Race (1968) by Samael Aun Weor.
