Vignana Bhairava Tantra - 10
Become one with empty space
Vyomakaram Swamathmanam dhyayeth dighbhir anavritam
Nirashraya Chethi: Shaktihi Swaroopam Darshayeth Thada
The noise from the television between the four walls of the drawing room, people chattering away or fighting - the resulting confused thought patterns can play havoc. Tune into the space within, says the Tantra. But how does one know that space within. Meditation. With the eyes, look out into the vast blue sky. It is nothing but one's own form, just as the earth is one's body, the air is one's breath, the water is the fluids of the body, the fire is the heat that burns and digests and the thoughts are one's mind, the empty space within is nothing but the same empty space without. Far away from our sight, it looks blue during day, grey in the evenings and dark at night. It is nevertheless, colourless empty space. Nothing else. Be with that space.
Into the form of space, ether, one' own self, when one meditates being supportless in all directions shakti in the form of consciousness is then revealedone that is closest to consciousness - our true being is nothing but that. - Swahilya Shambhavi.
