Swamiji elaborates on why “The path is Shakti (energy); the path is not Shiva.” and why “Energy is the real path you have to tread.”
This lecture is an excerpt from the Vijnana Bhairava: The Manual for Self Realization, verses 20-21, revealed by Swami Lakshmanjoo . . .
निरविभागेन भावना ।
तदासौ शिवरूपी सयात
शैवी मुखमिहोचयते ॥॥
nirvibhagena bhavana /
tadasau sivarupi syat
saivi mukhamihocyate // 20 //
When you enter in...
Swamiji explains to us how and why Lord Shiva disconnects Himself from His energy and yet is never disconnected from it at the same time.
This is from the Bodhapañcadaśikā by Abhinavagupta, who wrote the “15 verses of wisdom” for ‘those dear devotees who are not intellectually inclined”.
This part is starting with verse 6 till verse 8. You can review the previous verse here.
एष देवोऽनया देवया नितयं करीडारसोतसुकः ।
