Example text

The Indian guru figure DattËtreya is often associated with wine and women, according to Origin and development of DattËtreya worship in India. The author says (p68): “It is worth noting that the followers of VËma MËrga are seen practising such activities based on five Ma-KËras. The 56 27 HINDU TANTRAS VËma MËrga is one of the three branches of Tantras. The wine referred to is not the ordinary wine but is nectar in the form of feelings which are the outcome of knowledge of Brahman. In the same way, the union with woman is not to be understood in the popular sense but it is the union of a YogÌ with his SuÛumÙË NË×Ì.

Each of these so-called six cakras is associated with a subset of the 50 mËtÎkËs. In the DevÌrahasya, one of the texts abstracted in this book, there’s a description of the goddess JvËlËmukhÌ. She is described as having three eyes, with a moon as the crest of her diadem, and as bright as the sun, the moon and the great fire at the end of time. She is seated in a six-fold cakra, the form of consciousness (Cit). This description is followed by a nyËsa of JvËlËmukhi, with the 21,600 breaths ascribed to six cakras having four, six, 10, 12, 16, two and 1,000 petals respectively.

The devatË is “drawn out” by breath usually with a flower, and placed on the yantra, image or other object, and then worshipped as if she or he is actually present. After the other elements of the pÍjË are completed, the devatË is “drawn back” by breath, using the same flower into the complex of the “worshipper”. The final phase involves the scrubbing out of the yantra or other base for pÍjË, if it is a temporary object, and using the leftovers to make a forehead mark, then worshipping the devatËs of the leftovers, and a final offering to the sun.
