Tantric Meditation Vajrayogini
Andrey Lappa – 60 minutes
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
Training 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.
Training 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.
Training 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.
Training 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.
Tantric Meditation Vajrayogini is the second installment in Andrey Lappa’s thorough workshop series, where he helps students delve into the sacred tradition of Tantric meditation. Traditionalized by master yogis in the Himalayan mountains, Tantric meditation is a deep, spiritual practice—and while the practices that are presented in this online course have been simplified, they still lay a solid foundation for students who are interested in understanding the underlying principles of the sacred tradition.
