We know that bhasma is a very important part of Shaivite traditions, bhasma is sacred to shaivites, loved by shaivites, but what we don’t know is that, Mahadeva has said that bhasma has importance in relieving you of physical diseases ad relieving you of many mental problems. So bhasma snaana is prescribed. Bhasma is prepared from - Can you guess? It’s prepared from cowdung! There are processes given. 4-5 types of Bhasma are described. Most important among them is sacred Kalpa bhasma. Many descriptions are given in agamas, what I’m giving is just a quick summary. By no means exhaustive, just a reference. So Mahadeva has given these descriptions and also in the order of their impo

Now, aspects of Hinduism as we understand it today versus what is mentioned in our agamas, what Mahadeva has to say. How far we are from the originally revealed to where we are today. Now according to Mahadeva, not a single activity is performed without a mantra. This not what I’m saying- this is what he says. ‘Mantra vina kriya naasti’. So, he has given mantra for every action. So, Manana or contemplation if roughly translated, is the ability to know everything and Tranaa is the liberation from everything, all the ills, bondages of samsara.

We were to sit silently in our plastic chairs, close our eyes, and focus on our breath. I had never meditated, but I’d gone to church, so I instinctively bowed my head. Then I realized, given that this would last for 15 minutes, I should probably find a more comfortable neck position.
