RamDev – Healing at the Edge – Ep. 92 – The Tantra of Delight, Wonder, and Astonishment

RamDev dives into the Tantra of delight, wonder, and astonishment to help us surrender with love into our sacred fundamental nature.

“In this crazy 21st century in which we’re living, for me, the most available and exciting practice is this notion of Tantra—of being able to be with anything and immediately go to its fundamental nature.” – RamDev Dale Borglum

In this episode RamDev Dale Borglum explores:

  • Wisdom from classic books Zen Flesh Zen Bones by Paul Reps, and The Yoga of Delight, Wonder, and Astonishment, translated by Jai Deva Singh, both on ancient Vijñāna Bhairava—the 112 instructions from Shiva to the Goddess on how to immediately awaken
  • The connection within Tantra between love, emptiness, self, devotion, and compassion
  • Maharajji’s statement that “the best form to worship God is every from” and how everything is grace
  • Tantra, the Divine Mother, and devouring and digesting emotions
  • Yoga versus Tantra
  • Embodied mindfulness for transmuting emotion into the sacred
  • Guru Yoga and identifying oneself with God/Deity and mantra
  • Surrendering into love through non-grasping
Ram Dev joins Raghu for a Maharajji, devotion, and Tantra steeped conversation about “winging it” in India, on Mindrolling Ep. 414
