Tantra & Vedanta

Sri Shyamji grew up in a family of Vedic tradition. He was initiated into the Saivite tradition of Tantra by an exceptional guru. The grace of the guru (guru krippa) and the spiritual practices he imparted (Sadhana) are the basis for his life’s work.
His knowledge of Shuddha (pure) Advaita Vedanta was taught to him by an extraordinary exponent, Sri. Atmanandendra Sarasvati. This wisdom has been
a major contribution to Microchakra Psychology™ and InnerTuning®.

The ancient way of life taught on the Indian subcontinent from time immemorial was called Sanatan Dharma—the eternal laws. These were regarded as the laws of the universe. If a person could understand and follow them, their life would be in harmony with the universe. No distinction was made between physical and spiritual laws. Sanatan Dharma has been carried through the ages by two ancient traditions: Tantra and Veda.

The scope of these traditions is vast. InnerTuning® makes most use of the non- dual forms of Saivism from the Tantric tradition and Advaita Vedanta from
the Vedic tradition. It also suggests that ages ago, these might have been just one tradition (Tantra-Advaita). These laws together with the inner sounds and visions of Sri Shyamji are the source of inspiration for Microchakra™ Psychology and InnerTuning® systems.

 

The viewpoint of nonduality teaches that Consciousness is “One without a second.” It further teaches that each of us is ultimately that One Consciousness. “Tat Tvam Asi—Thou art That.”

An essential step in this direction is to perceive the difference between the Self and the ego. This advanced and subtle step is called discernment (vicara). Advaita Vedanta refers to the absence of this discernment as metaphysical ignorance. Vedanta employs the highest thought process that humans are capable of. It is not possible to approach this truth without first transcending the mind.

In the Tantric tradition, it is said;

'‘Yatha Pinday Tatha Brahmanday’
' As it is here, so it is there’

 The human microcosm is regarded as a reflection of the universal macrocosm.
