SHRII SHRII ANANDAMURTI
23 April 1969, Manila, PHILIPPINES
About 6500 years ago there was a great Yogi; HIS name was Sadáshiva – Shiva.
You know, in Tantra there are two cadres, stages, or two varieties, amongst Yogis.
One is known as kaola, and another MAHÁKAOLA.
Kaola means the Spiritual aspirant who has raised the coiled serpentine, known as Kulakund́alinii in Saḿskrta, and brought it to the controlling point of the Pineal gland.
That is the fundamental Union of the fundamental – To establish the union of the fundamental negativity with the fundamental positivity; starting point with Culminating point.
They are called Kaola because they have raised the Kulakund́alinii; adjective of kula is kaola.
Kula – Noun, kaola – Adjective.
So, all the Sádhakas, each and every Sádhaka, can become a kaola by his Sádhaná.
Mahákaola are rare Personalities.
For a Devotee, HE is the, HE is called Táraka Brahma.
HE is Mahákaola.
What is Táraka Brahma?
The movement of this world, or the movement of each and every entity, is of a particular nature.
There is in the center the nucleus, and electrons are moving around the nucleus.
In each and every system there is a nucleus, and other objects are moving around the nucleus.
The, if there is any change in the comparative applied force of the Centripetal and the Centrifugal forces, then the cyclic order will undergo metamorphosis.
These change takes place, and in that case it will take a parabolic form, a parabolic movement.
The ellipt where, the point where the parabolic and the elliptical figures touch each other – that tangential point – is the Táraka Brahma so far as the Cosmological order is concerned.
That Táraka Brahma, HE takes shape, Physical shape & to help the general people in their progress in the realm of Tantra and Yoga.
They are Mahákaola.
The difference between, Shiva was a Mahákaola. HE came here about 7000 years ago.
After HIM, about 3500 years ago, three thousand five hundred years ago, there came another Mahákaola. HE was called Krśńa.
The difference between kaola and Mahákaola is,
Kaola raises his coiled serpentine, kulakund́alinii, by his Sádhaná, and establishes union with the fundamental negativity and fundamental positivity; and
In the case of Mahákaola, Mahákaola has that power to raise kulakund́alinii of others also.
A kaola can never raise the kulakund́alinii of others; he can raise the kulakund́alinii of his own.
But Mahákaola can, if HE so desires, can raise the Kulakund́alinii of others also.
Shiva, or Sadáshiva, HE was a Mahákaola.
And HE brought all the expressions and activities, all the secrets of Tantra, within the framework of a system.
That is, HE systematized all Tantric and Yogic pursuits, action.
Shiva’s spouse was Gaorii. She was also known as Párvatii.
Because she was in Pravat, In Saḿskrta “Pravat” means “mountain”.
She was a mountain girl, Himalayan girl; that’s why she is also commonly known as “Párvatii”.
She was also a great Yogi.
Now, these Shiva and Párvatii, they are treated as Ideal.
They are looked upon as Ideals for each and every Yogi, both family man and Ascetic.
For a family man, a Yogi who is a family man, Shiva is the Ideal.
For a lady who is a Yogi and family man, Párvatii is the Ideal.
For an Ascetic, male or female – for a male, Shiva is the Ideal, and for an Avadhútiká Gaorii is the Ideal, Párvatii is the Ideal.
Now I think you have understood it, the story?
It is not a story, it is a fact, and most of the books on Yoga are nothing but conversations, dialogues between Shiva and Párvatii.
Shiva is treated as the Ideal man, and Párvatii as the Ideal lady.
