Tantric Meditation Practices is a four-part lecture series that introduces the purpose and methods of the Tantric Yoga traditions of the Himalayas, including both the Hindu and Tibetan Buddhist lineages.
Tantric Meditation Series Overview
Lecture 1: Raja Yoga. Andrey describes the stages of controlling consciousness through Raja Yoga that lead the practitioner to the state of Samadhi. The principles of Raja Yoga provide a foundation for understanding Tantric methods.
Lecture 2: Vajrayogini. Tantric meditation is introduced as an especially effective method of achieving Samadhi and enlightenment. Andrey then presents Vajrayogini as one example of a powerful Tantric meditation practice. Through the visualizations and mantra meditation of Vajrayogini meditation, karma can be erased and one's consciousness purified.
Lecture 3: Tantric Symbolism. Andrey explains the symbolism and purpose of deity images in Hinduism and Tibetan Buddhism. Deity images in these traditions can seem unsettling and bizarre to the uninitiated observer. However, by decoding the esoteric meaning of the images, they can become understandable representations of the ego, consciousness and awakening.
Lecture 4: Vajrasattva. The final lecture in the series presents the Tantric practice of Vajrasattva as a powerful means of transforming negative karma into positive karma. Deity visualization and mantra meditation are again the powerful transformative methods of this practice.
Note: The Vajrasattva and Vajrayogini practices presented herein are simplified yet still powerful versions of these sacred practices. Initiation into the full depth of these practices requires a direct relationship with an authorized lineage holder of these traditions. It is Andrey's hope that by experiencing the power and understanding the principles behind these practices, you will be inspired to seek out and study with a teacher directly.
Universal Yoga is a unified scientific approach to achieving liberation of consciousness through a balanced application of physical, energetic and psychic practices. This system reflects Andrey Lappa's experience with spiritual teachers of the Hindu and Tibetan Buddhist traditions of the Himalayas, his decades of personal practice and research, and his belief in complete freedom and creativity in practice. Andrey encourages students and teachers to use the tools of Universal Yoga to create unique practices well-suited to support their own personal development along the spiritual path.
