Tantra teaches us that the Power of Shiva lies in Durga, and Vishnu in Maha Lakshmi and Brahma in Mother Saraswati, and on Earth, man has worked very hard to overpower women, and as a result they have themselves lost the power of divine existence, and thus it has created lots of turmoil around the world. What happens in Mumbai is one of the sigh of the turmoil, and this was just the beginning. There is the same turmoil happening in all the great spiritual sights of the past, that which is happening in the Middle East and in some parts of North India.
We are missing the positive love of the Divine Mother who lives amongst us as Women. To help change it we invite you to be part of IFC Mahavidya Temple India to form a community that will strive to change the way we thing and act. The Father of Para-Tan and the Master of The Living Goddess Tradition is willing to travel any where in to help promote the Living Goddess Tradition.
Remarks of the Western savant, Max Mueller:
"If one would ask me under what sky the human mind has most fully developed its precious gifts, has scrutinized most profoundly the greatest problems of life, and has, at least for some, provided solutions which deserve to be admired even by those have studied Plato and Rant, I would indicate India. And if one would ask me which literature would give us back (us Europeans, who have been exclusively fed on Greek and Roman thought, and on that of the Semitic race) the necessary equilibrium in order to make our inner life more perfect, more comprehensive, more universal, in short more human, a life not only for this life, but for a transformed and eternal life, once again I would indicate India."
Dr. Radhakrishnan, one of the most eminent philosophers of our times, in one of his books, quotes Philostratos in "The Life of Apollonius":
"Apollonius, the great thinker and philosopher is said to have come across two learned men from India. He asked them, "Do you know yourselves? "The two Hindus replied, " If we know everything, it is because first we know ourselves. We would never have succeeded in acquiring wisdom had we not first acquired this self-knowledge. " Apollonius, astonished at their reply, inquired, further; "What do you think you are?" "We are gods," they replied. And he said "Why?" "For we are good men," was their answer: "By good deeds we obtain union with God. "
This forms the basis of the framework of Tantra social life, as laid down by our ancient teachers. God is the repository of all spiritual qualities like love, kindness, tenderness, forgiveness, a willingness to communicate knowledge to the ignorant, and not being weary of doing good to others. Ancient Tantrika education systems also aimed at inculcating these traits in a human being so as to make all a perfect being, an ideal social being, who achieved union with God. Again Philostratos quotes Apollonius, "All wish to live in the nearness of god, but only the Hindus bring it to pass."
According to Dr. Radhakrishnan, "The ideal man of India is not the magnanimous man of Greece or the valiant knight of medieval Europe, but the free man of spirit, who has attained insight into the universal source of rigid discipline and practice of disinterested virtues, who has freed himself from the prejudices of his time and place."
The Bhagavate Gita, one of the three scriptural authorities of the Hindu religion, translated as "The Song Celestial" by Edwin Arnold, emphasizes the two sides of religion, the personal and the social. Personally we should recognize the Divine within us and let it manifest itself penetrating the human, and socially, society must be viewed and treated as subdued to the image of the Divine.
Swami Vivekananda, founder of the Order of Ramakrishna, his spiritual master, defines religion thus: "Religion is the manifestation of the Divinity already in Man." About the goal of life Swamiji says, "Each soul is potentially divine. The goal is to manifest this divinity within, by controlling nature, external and internal. Do this either by work, or worship, or psychic control, or philosophy - by one or more, or all of these - and to be free. This is the whole of Tantric spirituality. Doctrines, or dogmas, or rituals, or books, or temples, or forms, are but secondary details."
