AGHORA LEFT HAND OF GOD PDF

Because of this monistic doctrine, the Aghoris maintain that all opposites are ultimately illusory. The purpose of embracing pollution and degradation through various customs is the realization of non-duality advaita through transcending social taboos , attaining what is essentially an altered state of consciousness and perceiving the illusory nature of all conventional categories. Aghoris are not to be confused with Shivnetras , who are also ardent devotees of Shiva but do not indulge in extreme, tamasic ritual practices. Although the Aghoris enjoy close ties with the Shivnetras, the two groups are quite distinct, Shivnetras engaging in sattvic worship. Aghoris base their beliefs on two principles common to broader Shaiva beliefs: that Shiva is perfect having omniscience , omnipresence and omnipotence and that Shiva is responsible for everything that occurs: all conditions, causes and effects.

Because of this monistic doctrine, the Aghoris maintain that all opposites are ultimately illusory. The purpose of embracing pollution and degradation through various customs is the realization of non-duality advaita through transcending social taboos , attaining what is essentially an altered state of consciousness and perceiving the illusory nature of all conventional categories.

Aghoris are not to be confused with Shivnetras , who are also ardent devotees of Shiva but do not indulge in extreme, tamasic ritual practices. Although the Aghoris enjoy close ties with the Shivnetras, the two groups are quite distinct, Shivnetras engaging in sattvic worship.

Aghoris base their beliefs on two principles common to broader Shaiva beliefs: that Shiva is perfect having omniscience , omnipresence and omnipotence and that Shiva is responsible for everything that occurs: all conditions, causes and effects.

Consequently, everything that exists must be perfect and to deny the perfection of anything would be to deny the sacredness of all life in its full manifestation, as well as to deny the Supreme Being. The practices of the Aghoris are centered around the removal of these bonds. Dattatreya was believed to be an incarnation of Brahma , Vishnu , and Shiva united in the same singular physical body. Dattatreya is revered in all schools of Tantra, which is the philosophy followed by the Aghora tradition, and he is often depicted in Hindu artwork and its holy scriptures of folk narratives, the Puranas , indulging in Aghori " left-hand " Tantric worship as his prime practice.

An aghori believes in getting into total darkness by all means, and then getting into light or self realizing. Though this is a different approach from other Hindu sects, they believe it to be effective. They are infamously known for their rituals that include such as shava samskara or shava sadhana ritual worship incorporating the use of a corpse as the altar to invoke the mother goddess in her form as Smashan Tara Tara of the Cremation Grounds.

In Hindu iconography, Tara, like Kali , is one of the ten Mahavidyas wisdom goddesses and once invoked can bless the Aghori with supernatural powers.

The most popular of the ten Mahavidyas who are worshiped by Aghoris are Dhumavati , Bagalamukhi , and Bhairavi. Barrett p. They believe that all human beings are natural-born Aghori. Hari Baba has said on several occasions that human babies of all societies are without discrimination, that they will play as much in their own filth as with the toys around them.

Children become progressively discriminating as they grow older and learn the culturally specific attachments and aversions of their parents. Children become increasingly aware of their mortality as they bump their heads and fall to the ground. They come to fear their mortality and then palliate this fear by finding ways to deny it altogether. This ideal example serves as a prototype for other Aghor practices, both left and right, in ritual and in daily life.

Here, Kina Ram is buried in a tomb or samadhi which is a centre of pilgrimage for Aghoris and Aghori devotees. Apart from this, any cremation ground would be a holy place for an Aghori ascetic. The cremation grounds near the yoni pithas , 51 holy centres for worship of the Hindu Mother Goddess scattered across South Asia and the Himalayan terrain, are key locations preferred for performing sadhana by the Aghoris.

They are also known to meditate and perform sadhana in haunted houses. Medicine[ edit ] Aghori practice healing through purification as a pillar of their ritual. Their patients believe the Aghoris are able to transfer health to, and pollution away from patients as a form of "transformative healing", due to the believed superior state of body and mind of the Aghori.

Aghora At The Left Hand Of God - Robert E. Svoboda

An aghori is a practitioner of A An aghori is a practitioner of Aghora, the spiritual discipline that takes Tantra to its farthest limits. For Vimalananda Aghora was a wholly internal process that eliminates all commonly-accepted restricitions to the human faculties of perception. He takes a sort of intoxicant and thus gets intoxicated in Supreme Love which emanates from the innermost recesses of his heart.
