AUTHENTIC SRIVIDYOPASANA (Chanchal is back) 2 - By Bhuvananandanatha
One day Purna started telling authentic Srividyopasana vidhi to Chanchal...
Purna: Dear Chanchal, this vidya is utmost secret. Real sadhakas only can understand and practice it. Some people cannot understand it. Some people see it as nonsense. People who cannot understand it will find easy ways (back door) to get liberation. As a learned practitioner you know liberation will not come just by doing mantra sadhana. There are certain ways to do mantra sadhana also. Dasa vidha (ten types of) samskaras (rites) are to be performed before practicing mantra sadhana. Pity is that people run behind mantras without knowing all these concepts. It is simply wasting of their valuable time. I will let you know what are they and how to do that in due course.
First we must discuss Gurupaaduka Archana (puja) procedure. Without this puja no one get siddhi. There are different ways to perform Gurupaaduka puja. Let us discuss all.
Remember one thing. Your daily puja must start with Gurunatha stotram. This will give you sidhi. One should remember his guru lineage daily (Sriguru, Parama guru, Paramesti guru). This guru lineage will differ as per Amnaya. Knowledge of Guru parampara (lineage) will stable that sadhaka to that lineage. This is more important. If a sadhaka is stable in a particular lineage then his sadhana will give results. Deity, vidya and Tantra will give siddhi at the earliest. One should practice it daily in naimittika (non-material) and kaamya (material) karmas. One who does not have this knowledge cannot be considered as a sadhaka. Spiritually he is nothing.
Then Purna told him Gurunatha stotram. Chanchal felt some trepidants in his body while listening this. Purna advised him to chant it every day before and after puja and told following other important things:
You must chant this stotra every day for sidhi. "Natha" and "Shiva" should be added at the end of Guru name in case of living guru and liberated guru respectively. You know three classes of Guru. We need not discuss again here. You should always contemplate Guru, deity and Atma are one and same. guru mandala puja must be performed on the following days.
Guruji birth day (as per tithis not as per date of birth), Purnadeeksha day, Birth day of Sadhaka (as per birth tithi), Natha vyapti day, Aksharatraya sampaata day, Purna day, Six auspicious days, vishistha sadarsha seven auspicious days, every month or every year.
Above referred last five days can be accessed from Tantrik Panchanga.
Dear Chanchal, now I will tell you how to find a right guru. You can find 'n' number of gurus like vegetables in the market. But all are not capable of giving you liberation. If you don't find a right guru your life will become infelicity. In that journey you will have to lose your hard earned money, self respect, valuable time, sometimes fidelity etc.
