Unveiling the ancient secrets of Tantra…

tantra-essence-vigyan-bhairav-tantra-retreat-04

The origins of Tantra can be traced back to a 5000-year-old Sanskrit scripture named 'Vigyan Bhairav Tantra'.

This scripture is regarded as a divine conversation between Lord Shiva and his beloved Parvati.

It consists of 112 sutras. These sutras are Shiva’s answers to 112 questions Parvati asked him.

These 112 sutras or meditation techniques cover various aspects of our lives from expanding consciousness to staying grounded in our everyday life; from the relationship with ourselves to the relationship with others; from sex to spirituality.

These 112 techniques provide seekers with practical tools to transcend limitations, connect with the divine, and experience spiritual awakening.

The Vigyan Bhairav Tantra holds deep spiritual significance and is considered a sacred scripture for those on the path of Tantra and self-realization.‚ú®

Introducing Vigyan Bhairav Tantra Retreat

Ma Ananda Sarita has been teaching this retreat since the year 2002. This series of 10-day retreats is for sincere seekers who would like to experience authentic Tantra as a path to enlightenment.

During this retreat we explore experientially, the 112 meditations. Each year we offer one third of the 112 methods. This means over a 3 - year period, you have the opportunity to practice all 112 methods. The retreats do not have to be done in a sequential order and you do not have to do all 3. It is entirely up to you whether you wish to experience all 112 methods or not. 

Previous deeply lived experience of meditation and personal development is a prerequisite for attending this retreat. By participating in this retreat, you are offered a unique opportunity to understand the true essence of Tantra; a path for discovering enlightenment in each and every aspect of human life experience.

This work is a deep-dive into the core of your being, covering every facet of life. This retreat is perfect for you if you are looking for a deeper connection between body and soul, matter and spirit.

‚ÄúI still read the sutras everyday.‚ÄĚ

Till today this retreat is present in my life. I have this book near my bed. I read the sutras every day. To feel it. To integrate it in my life.
