谭崔瑜伽(五)之:千里姻缘一线牵 Nadi vs Granthi

从一开始的谭崔瑜珈(一)之:无中生有,到上一篇的谭崔瑜伽(四)之:迷惑的枷锁Kundalini vs Avidya ,我们认识到谭崔对物质世界、万物迹象的见解与哲学。

在谭崔世界里,Brahman《万能智慧》就好比现代天文学里的“大爆炸” —- 是宇宙的根源。Brahman 的分身Atman,原为“雌雄同体Shiva/Shakti”的完整体,就像太极图里的“阴阳”。因为受到Karma 的影响,所以Shiva 和Shakti 不得不分开。离开了Shiva 的Shakti 可说是《大地之母》:她赋予生命物质化的实体、感官和知觉。

被分开了的Shiva 和Shakti 也有他们自己的“鹊桥”。他们的“鹊桥”叫做Brahma Nadi。 133 more words

The state of our Granthis is our hypocrisy

Dr. I.J. Singh writes about the case of a Granthi (literally, ‘reader of the Guru Granth Sahib’, these are Sikhs – often from India – who are hired by Gurdwaras to run religious services) in the United States… 306 more words
