Life Is Renewed

Yukti Versus

 

In the body of the Vinjana Bhairava Tantra, Bhairava articulates 112 yuktis, or yoga meditation practices, for opening to the divine mystery within everyday experience.

The practices begin in verse 24 and continue to verse 135. The wide variety of techniques allows each individual to find their doorway into wonder, astonishment, and delight.

The One Who Is Intimate to All Beings replies,

 

Beloved, your questions require the asnwers that come

Through direct living experience.

 

The way of experience begins with a breath,

Such as the breath you are breathing now,

Awakening into luminous reality

May dawn in the momentary throb

Between any two breaths.

 

Exhaling, breath is released and flows out.

There is a pulse as it turns to flow in.

In that turn, you are empty.

Enter that emptiness as the source of all life,

 

Inhaling, breath flows in, filling, nourishing.

Just as it turns to flow out,

There is a flash of pure joy-

Life is renewed.
