VITAL TANTRA - CORE PRINCIPLES - ARTICLE

Here is the first principle:

EVERYTHING IS RAJAYA YOGA

What does it mean? That when someone follow for instance bikram yoga, when they take a certain form or practice a given posture, that's bikram - when they do it differently, that's no longer bikram.

It means that bikram is limited to a very specific set of practices and rules and that they are exclusive.

With Rajaya yoga, EVERYTHING YOU DO IS PART OF THE SYSTEM!

There is no action that you could take that is outside of the rajaya yoga system because there are no limits.

Now, there are a few preferred guide lines or action lines that you can flow into if you want to go that way.

But these are open invitations, not rules or even guidelines.

They are free open invitations.

There are no pressures, no demands.

Rajaya yoga does not discriminate between religions. This path is UNIVERSAL.

------------

So, that's principle number one:

EVERYTHING IS RAJAYA YOGA 

What else???

-----------

There is no withdrawal, no suppression!

The path of Rajaya yoga is a path actively engaged in life and society with profession, love life, money and everything else!

It is complete and manifested.

RAJAYA YOGA IS IN THE WORLD

Ok!

------------------

What's principle number 3?

BE IN SERVICE TO THE PLANET AND HUMANKIND

This is not an isolated path! It is connected. When you start acting in that stream you flow with an inspiration which is way vaster than yourself. The fact that it's you or someone else manifesting a given action doesn't matter.

What matters is that IT happens.

The goal is NOT personal gain.

The goal is the well being of life and humankind on this planet.

Connecting with that stream means becoming a transformation and support agent.

ok!

--------------

Principle nb 4?

FREE LIFE

This means that your role is to free life from disturbances and blockages. Your job is to open space and free life force in whatever way you can.

It can be in your body, in someone else's body, in a mind, in a city, anywhere!

If you see a disturbance or blockage, your job is to remove the blockage and harmonize life force flow

ok!

----------------

Principle nb 5

ACTION!

This is not a path of passivity or withdrawal! It is a path of active engagement! You transform your life and the world through action!

Prayer, wishful thinking or internal meditation are only a small fraction of this path!

The path is ACTIVE!

-----------

Principle nb 6

YOUR HOME IS THE PLANET

There is no limit to what you call home. If you could travel to another solar system, then the universe would be your home. The point is that there is no limit! Your home is right where you are


-----------

Principle nb 7

YOUR FAMILY IS HUMANKIND

You are connected to each person on this planet - no one is left behind - this is one global big soul family and each person is part of it.

There is no distinction between those who are in it and those who are not in it.

-----------

Principle nb 8

YOU CHOOSE YOUR DISCIPLINE - EVERY PATH IS VALID

The actions that you perform are your choice. It is up to you to define what works and what doesn't for you. This means that you are your own master.

No one else makes choices for you.

It is from that spot of freedom that you can see your destiny and your practices. For one person, it will be dance, for another it will be business, for another it will be chines calligraphy! It doesn't matter.

EACH AND EVERY PATH IS VALID!

-----------

Principle nb 9

UNITY OF LIFE

We are not entities separated from each other - on an energy level, all life is connected. And on a consciousness level, we are connected to.

Separation is an illusion. One of the goals of Rajaya yoga is to experience unity - That's self realization - Experience your unified spirit
