Some introductory points. First, the world of Vigyan Bhairav Tantra is not intellectual, it is not philosophical. Doctrine is meaningless to it. It is concerned with method, with technique – not with principles at all. The word tantra means technique, the method, the path. So it is not philosophical – note this. It is not concerned with intellectual problems and inquiries.

About Book – The Book of Secrets PDF Book
It is not concerned with the “why” of things, it is concerned with “how”; not with what is truth, but how the truth can be attained. Tantra means technique. So this treatise is a scientific one. Science is not concerned with why, science is concerned with how. That is the basic difference between philosophy and science. Philosophy asks, “Why this existence?” Science asks, “How this existence?”
The moment you ask the question, how?, method, technique, become important. Theories become meaningless; experience becomes the center. Tantra is science, Tantra is not philosophy. To understand philosophy is easy because only your intellect is required. If you can understand language, if you can understand concept, you can understand philosophy.

You need not change; you require no transformation. As you are, you can understand philosophy – but not Tantra. You will need a change… rather, a mutation. Unless you are different, Tantra cannot be understood because Tantra is not an intellectual proposition, it is an experience. Unless you are receptive, ready, vulnerable to the experience, it is not going to come to you.
Philosophy is concerned with the mind. Your head is enough; your totality is not required. Tantra needs you in your totality. It is a deeper challenge. You will have to be in it wholly. It is not fragmentary. A different approach, a different attitude, a different mind to receive it is required. Because of this, Devi is asking apparently philosophical questions.

Tantra starts with Devi’s questions. All the questions can be tackled philosophically. Really, any question can be tackled in two ways: philosophically or totally, intellectually or existentially. For example, if someone asks, “What is love?” you can tackle it intellectually, you can discuss, you can propose theories, you can argue for a particular hypothesis.
You can create a system, a doctrine – and you may not have known love at all. To create a doctrine, experience is not needed. Really, on the contrary, the less you know the better because then you can propose a system unhesitatingly. Only a blind man can easily define what light is. When you do not know you are bold. Ignorance is always bold; knowledge hesitates.
And the more you know, the more you feel that the ground underneath is dissolving. The more you know, the more you feel how ignorant you are. And those who are really wise, they become ignorant. They become as simple as children, or as simple as idiots. Tantra is amoral. It doesn’t ask you who you are. Your being a man is enough. Wherever you are, whatsoever you are, you are accepted.

Choose a technique which fits you, put your total energy into it, and you will not be the same again. Real, authentic techniques always will be like that. If I make preconditions, it shows I have a pseudo technique – I say, “First do this and first do not do that, and then…” And those are impossible conditions because a thief can change his objects, but be cannot become a non-thief.
A greedy man can change the objects of his greed, but he cannot become non-greedy. You can force him or he can force upon himself non-greed, but it is also only because of a certain greed. If heaven is promised he may even try to be non-greedy. But this is greed par excellence. Heaven, moksha – liberation; sat-chit-anand – existence, consciousness, bliss, they will be the objects of his greed.
Tantra says, you cannot change man unless you give him authentic techniques with which to change. Just by preaching nothing is changed. And you can see this all over the world. Whatsoever Tantra says is written all over the world – so much preaching, so much moralizing, so many priests, preachers. The whole world is filled with them, yet everything is so ugly and so immoral. The Book of Secrets PDF Book
Why is this happening? The same will be the case if you give your hospitals to preachers. They will go there and they will start preaching. And they will make every ill man feel, “You are guilty! You have created this disease; now change this disease.” If preachers are given hospitals, what will be the condition of hospitals? The same as the condition of the whole world.
Preachers go on preaching. They go on telling people, “Don’t be angry,” without giving any technique. And we have heard this teaching for so long that we never even raise the question: “What are you saying? I am angry and you simply say, ‘Don’t be angry.’ How is this possible? When I am angry it means ‘I’ am anger, and you just tell me, ‘Don’t be angry.’
So I can only suppress myself.” But that will create more anger. That will create guilt – because if I try to change and cannot change myself, that creates inferiority. It gives me a feeling of guilt, that I am incapable, I cannot win over my anger. No one can win! You need certain weapons, you need certain techniques, because your anger is just an indication of a disturbed mind. The Book of Secrets PDF Book
Change the disturbed mind and the indication will change. Anger is just showing what is within. What is good? What is bad? From where can you define them and demark them as separate? They are always one. They are only different degrees of the same thing. Once this is known and felt, your mind becomes again pure. This is the purity meant by Tantra.
So I will define tantric purity as innocence, not as goodness. But innocence can be ignorant – then it is of no use. It has to be lost, you have to be thrown out of it; otherwise you cannot mature. Giving up knowledge and transcendence of knowledge are both part of maturing, part of being really adult. So go through it, but do not remain there. Move!
Go on moving! A day comes when you are beyond it. That is why tantric purity is difficult to understand and can be misunderstood. It is delicate! So to recognize a tantric sage is virtually impossible. Ordinary saints and sages can be recognized because they follow you – your standards, your definitions, your morality. A tantric sage is even difficult to recognize because he transcends all divisions. The Book of Secrets PDF Book Download
So really, in the whole history of human growth we know nothing about tantric sages. Nothing is mentioned or recorded about them because it is so difficult to recognize them. Confucius went to Lao Tzu. Lao Tzu’s mind is that of a tantrically awakened sage. He never knew about the word tantra; the word is meaningless for him. He never knew anything about Tantra, but whatsoever he has said is Tantra.
Confucius is representative of our mind, he is the arch-representative. He continually thinks in terms of good and bad, of what should be done and what should not be done. He is a legalist – the greatest legalist ever born. He went to see Lao Tzu, and he asked Lao Tzu, “What is good? What ought one to do? What is bad? Define it clearly.”
Everyone is creating misery around himself because of others. Someone says this is bad and someone says that it is good, and they go on forcing these ideas in your mind. The parents are doing this, the society is doing this, and then one day you are just following others’ ideas. And the difference between your nature and others’ ideas cause a split; you become schizophrenic. The Book of Secrets PDF Book Download
You will do something and you will believe in the very contrary. That will create guilt. Everyone feels guilty. Not that everyone is guilty, everyone feels guilty because of this mechanism. They say anger is bad. Everyone has said to you that anger is bad, but no one has told you how to know what anger is. Everyone says sex is bad.
They have been teaching, teaching, that sex is bad, and no one says what sex is and how to know it. Ask your father, and he will become uneasy. He will say, “Do not talk about such bad things!” But these bad things are facts. Even your father could not escape it; otherwise you would not have been born. You are a naked fact. And no matter what your father says about sex, he couldn’t escape it.
But he will feel uneasy if you ask him because no one has told him; his parents never told him why sex is bad. Why? And how to know it? And how to go deep into it? No one will tell this to you, they will just go on labeling things: this is bad and that is good. That labeling creates misery and hell. So one thing to remember – for any seeker, a real seeker.

This is a basic thing to be understood: remain with your facts, try to know them. Do not allow the society to force its ideology on you. Do not look at yourself through others’ eyes. You have eyes; you are not blind. And you have the facts of your inner life. Use your eyes! That is what consideration means. And if you consider, then this will not be a problem.
If you ask Hindus, they have not talked about Mahavira at all – not even talked about him, not even mentioned him in their books – because for the Hindu mind, man alone without a woman is half, a fragment, not the whole. Ram alone is not the whole, so Hindus say “Sitaram.” They put the woman first. They will never say “Ramsita,” they will say “Sitaram.”
They will say “Radhakrishna.” They will put woman first for a basic reason – because man is born out of woman and man alone is half. With woman he becomes whole. So no Hindu god is alone. The other part, the other half, is there. Sitaram is really the whole; Radhakrishna is the whole. Krishna alone is half. There is no need for Ram to quit Sita and there is no need for Krishna to quit Radha. The Book of Secrets PDF Book Free
Why? They are fully aware. You cannot find a more aware man, a more conscious man than Shiva, but he is sitting with Parvati in his lap. It creates problems. Then who is right? Is a Buddha right or is a Shiva right? Problems are created because we do not know that everyone flowers individually.
Buddha and Shiva both are fully conscious, but it happens to Buddha that he leaves something in this full consciousness – that is his choice. It happens to Shiva in his full consciousness that he accepts everything. They are both at the same point of realization, of awareness, but their expression is different. So do not fall into any pattern. No one knows what will happen when you become aware.
Do not decide before becoming aware that you are going to quit this and that. Do not decide – no one knows. Wait! Be aware, and let your being flower. No one knows what will happen. With everyone there is an unknown possibility of flowering. And you need not follow anyone – because every following is dangerous, destructive; every imitation is suicide. Wait! a.

The man came back from the river, and he pushed that new man away from the tree and said, “This is my tree. You go and find another, somewhere else. No one can sit under my tree.” And this man had left his house, his wife, his children. Now the tree had become a possession – you cannot meditate under his tree. You cannot escape so easily from attachment.
It will take new forms, new shapes. You will be deceived, but this will be there. So do not fight with attachment, just try to understand why it is there. And then know the deep cause: because you are not, this attachment is there. Inside, you your own self is so much absent that you try to cling to anything in order to feel safe. You are not rooted, so you try to make anything your roots.
When you are rooted in your self, when you know who you are, what this being is which is in you and what this consciousness is which is in you, then you will not cling to anyone. That doesn’t mean you will not love. Really, only then can you love because then sharing is possible – and with no conditions, with no expectations. a. The Book of Secrets PDF Book Free
You simply share because you have an abundance, because you have so much it is overflowing. This overflowing of yourself is love. And when this overflowing becomes a flood, when by your own overflowing the whole universe is filled and your love touches the stars, in your love the earth feels good and in your love the whole universe is bathed, then it is devotion.
