Tantra is a Hindu religious and spiritual knowledge system which includes all the aspects of human life. It involves music, dance, culture, sex, logic, alchemy, warfare, rituals, Yoga, meditation, Ayurveda, Mantra, Sacred Geometry (Yantra), Sutras and much more. Tantra knowledge system can include any text, theory, system, method, instrument, technique or practice.
The simple meaning of Tantra is a web. To know and explore the web of life, web of Universe and web of subtle nature. At its core, Tantra is about recognizing the divine presence in all things, including ourselves and our bodies.
It encourages us to accept our panch-vikaras and ‘Pashuta’ (animalism), work on them, understand the energy of ‘animalism’ and panch-vikaras and then try to refine and channelise their energy to rise one’s consciousness and be enlightened. And to live a free life like a Siddha who is free from all kinds of shackles while living and performing all the duties of Samsaric life.
Without Gyan, Yoga, Karmakand and ‘Charya’ (Sadhna routine and Lifestyle) Tantra is incomplete. There are many traditions under Tantra. The topmost traditions of Tantra is called as the Himalayan Siddha Tantra, also known as ‘Yogini Kaul Siddhas’. In this lineage system, Kulant Peeth, popularly known as Kaulantak Peeth is the supreme centre (Agam-Nigam Math) situated in western Himalayas in Himachal Pradesh, India.
The Tantra of Kaulantak Peeth is also unique due to its mystical ‘Eva Parampara’ (Tradition of the Gods). Kaulantak Peeth follows both Tantra system equally as told by the Himalayan Siddhas- Shaivism and Shaktism.
In the Himalayan Siddha tradition, there is a secret Goddess of Tantra worshipped as the Goddess Kubjika.
In the Shakt tradition, Shakti is considered the divine mother, the source of all creation, and the ultimate reality.
One of the key aspects of Kubjika Tantra is the worship of the divine feminine through the use of yantras, mandalas, and other sacred symbols. These symbols are believed to represent different aspects of the feminine energy, and by meditating on them and using them in ritual, practitioners can connect with and channel this energy.
Kubjika Tantra also emphasizes the importance of the guru or teacher, who is seen as a guide and mentor on the path to spiritual enlightenment. The guru is believed to have a direct connection with the divine, and by following their teachings and guidance, Sadhaks can deepen their spiritual practice and realize their true nature.
Kubjika is a goddess of the Tantric Himalayan Siddhas. Kubjika means a woman who is ‘hunched-back’. The entire Siddhas’ Kubjika Tantra is based on this Goddess Kubjika’s hunch. Himalayan Siddhas told us that the Goddess Kubjika is hiding something in Her hunch. The Goddess’s hunch is not the deformity but the beauty of the highest level in the Universe. If an adept Sadhak manages to unlock the mysteries that the Goddess Kubjika protects in Her hunch then the Sadhak will attain liberation and despite his/her vices and shortcoming, that Sadhak will attain Mukti and Siddhatva.
Goddess Kubjika is often depicted as holding a ‘Trishool’ (trident), which symbolizes the three aspects of consciousness: waking, dreaming, and deep sleep. There are many Tantric scriptures, ‘Granth’ Devi Kubjika but the Kubjika Sutra of the Himalayan Siddhas is the most prominent and the only text which describes the origin of Devi Kubjika, Her Bhairav- Manthan Bhairav and the different forms of Devi Kubjika and Manthan Bhairav. The ‘Darshan’, philosophy, Mantras, types of Deeksha, Yantras, mandalas, Karmakand, ‘Kamya Prayoga’, ‘Kulant Guru Parampara’ and ‘Siddhi Upaya’ (techniques to attain mastery). Originally, The Himalayan Siddhas’ ‘Kubjika Sutra’ was passed on through ‘Maukhik Parampara’ (oral tradition) but the kind efforts of the head of Kaulantak Peeth- Mahasiddha Ishaputra, the ‘Kubjika Sutras’ are available in Hindi and English also.
Remember, that the ‘Kubjika Sutra’ are originally in ‘Kula Bhasha’ (Kula Language). It is a misconception that people relate Goddess Kubjika with sex, Kundalini and with womb of a woman. And also because of ‘Sri Vidya’ and ‘Sri Chakra’, there’s a misconception that Devi Kubjika is the Goddess of only ‘Paschimamnaya’. The Goddess of ‘Paschimamnaya’ is the ‘Vaam-Kubjika’, i.e. the Goddess of Vaam-marga. But the Goddess Kubjika is called as the ‘Maha-Kubjika’. She is popularly known as the ‘Parmocch Vidya’ in the tradition of Himalayan Siddhas.
