Akulavira Tantra

The yogi should continually practise showering himself with nectar. He becomes free from old age and liberated and devoid of all disease. He plays within the Ocean of Samsara, dearest one, is accomplished and independent - Kaulajnananirnaya VII, 20

(The picture on the left is a rare image of Matsyendranath, from a painting on the wall of the Churu Mannathji monastery in Rajasthan. Photo taken with the permission of the mahant. The legend at the bottom reads Matsyavahana Mahasiddha Matsyendranath. )

This text was included in a collection of works relating to the Matsyendranath lineage of the Natha Sampradaya, and edited by PC Bagchi, collected in one book entitled Kaulajnananirnaya of the School of Matsyendranath and published in the 1930s.

Although Bagchi's interesting and detailed introduction to works attributed to Matsyendranath, was included with our translation of the Kaula Jnana Nirnaya published by Prachya Prakashan, Varanasi, 1986, there was not room then to include the Akulavira Tantra nor the other texts such as the Kulananda Tantra, and the Jnanakarika, the Sanskrit texts of which were included with the original edition.

We aim to fix this by providing, firstly, the text of the Akulavira in the iTrans format, as well as providing a guide to its content. In future, we will also add the last two texts to this site. We also intend to add some texts of the Gorakhnathi schools, collected in Kalyani Mallik's Siddha Siddhanta Paddhati and other works of the Natha Yogis (Poona Oriental Book House).

Bagchi says in his introduction that he consulted two versions called Akulavira, which, he thought, seemed to be part of a larger work. Be that as it may, the colophon to the text published here on this Web site attributes it to Macchendrapada, that is Matsyendranath, who, it adds, obtained the grace of the Yoginis at the place called Kamarupi (Kamarupa).

Bagchi notes that the Sanskrit of these Natha documents is often peppered with mistakes, vernacular terms and the like, which he thinks is a deliberate attempt by the gurus of the lines to throw off the mantle of Brahmin hegemony. As Mahendranath (Dadaji) points out in Ecstasy, Eternity and Equipoise, the Nath sampradaya did not have race, gender or caste exclusions.

The Akulavira opens with the following salutation: "Hail to the lotus feet of Shri Macchanda. I bow to Shri Minanatha, full of the bliss of Sahaja, liberated from the stain of Maya, supreme, diffused through the universe, in whom all the adharas are deep and still, born from his own self.

"Now I will declare the supremely marvellous Akulavira, the ultimate secret of secrets, creating the multitude of Siddhas in their real states. [1]

"By grace of the worlds, this was spoken by Siddha Natha. One who desires it should conceal it carefully, according to the rule. [2]

"Just as those beings sunk in the ocean of Samsara take refuge with the great and as all rivers flow into the oceans, [3] So in the Akula Vira all dharmas are dissolved. [3½]."

This text takes a very radical but entirely typical Natha stance, saying that the Akulavira, elsewhere described as the Parampadam (the supreme part) and the Sahajanandam (spontaneous bliss), alone gives liberation. It is identical with the guru. Akula, as Bagchi points out, is Shiva, the witness while Kula is Shakti, the cluster of energies.

Fools, deluded by Mahamaya, and deluded by the net of different shastras, follow Buddhism, Somasiddhanta, the Nyayas, Mimamsa, Pancharatra, Vama, Dakshina and Siddhanta, Itihasa, Purana, Bhutatattva and Garuda, Shiva agamas, with the false notion that these will bring liberation, the text says. But they have false notions and are enmeshed in useless discussions which do not liberate them from samsara. That liberation can only be found in the Akulavira. (verses 5 to 10).

Nor can it be achieved by piercing the chakras, by concentrating on nadis such as the Ida, Pingala or the Sushumna, or concentrating on adharas (chakras) whether in the navel, the throat, the heart, the head, or the top of the skull, this text says. Pranayama does not bring liberation either, nor thinking of the granthis, the bindu, or the centre in the forehead. Rasayana (alchemy) does not bring realisation of Akulavira either.

In a remarkable verse (56), it is said that the path of the Kaula is of two types - the artificial (kritaka) and the sahaja (spontaneous). The real or Sahaja is that in which Samarasa resides.

Akulavira it appears, cannot be defined by texts or schools of philosophy. It is all knowing, stainless (niranjana), everywhere, and has all the good qualities, facing in every direction. Once having seen this supreme form, the mind becomes calm.

Puja, going to tirthas, oblations, scents and the entire paraphernalia of the tantras, does not allow the realisation of Akulavira. Any bad pandit who reckons that such or other things will bring realisation merely serves to delude confused and deluded people.

As ghee resides latent in milk, as fire is ready to burst forth in wood, just as scent is inherent in blooms, oil in the sesame plant, the shadow of a tree in the tree, as bliss in wine, or as effulgence in a flame, so the Akulavira subsists in the world.

Akulavira is neither dharma nor adharma, it is free of both maintenance and dissolution, it is neither bound nor that which binds. The Akulavira is very deep and marvellous, being both above the pinda and devoid of pinda. It is of the essence of samarasa.

Yajna (fire sacrifice), self imposed restraints, japa (recitation of mantras), archana (worship), homa and sadhana, mantra, puja, bathing, vows are nothing whatever to do with Akulavira, which is without supports (niralamba pada), the peaceful (shanta), free of actions, all nowing, complete, free of both "is" and "is not", free of dualism and monism, and situated in one's own body.

When the feeling of samarasa exists, "he is Shiva, he is clearly the Deva, and he is the Moon, the Sun and Shankara. He is Vishakhya (Skanda), he is Mayuraksha (Indra), and similarly he is Buddha. His self is Devi, his self is the Deva, he is the pupil and he is the guru. He is the act of meditation, he is that meditated upon, he is the guru, the lord of all." (Verses 129-130).
