Tattwa shuddhi means elemental purificaiton and is a very dynamic and systematic practice of tantra which purifies and transforms the elements, which constitute the body and mind, in preparation for the awakening and ascension of Shakti.
The purpose of this practice, as in all tantric practices, is to liberate the mind from its attachment to external objects in order to realize the true inner nature.
- Learn to dissolve all thoughts & emotions into the raw power of Shakti
- Experience the primordial power of the universe within your own body and breath.
- Purify the subtle elements of the body and mind in preparation for spiritual awakening.
- Learn an ancient form of tantric meditation mentioned in many sacred Sanskrit scriptures.
- Expand your awareness into the building blocks of nature (thereby gaining in direct influence).
During these four weeks you learn how to transform the pranic flow of the tattwas back to their original unmanifest form as primordial Shakti. As long as the prana flows outward through the sense organs, awareness will be engrossed in the external world. However, if we can expand our awareness into these subtle energies then the experience, knowledge and illumination can arise from the inner dimensions independent from the sensory organs.
According to the teachings of tantra, the body/mind complex are comprised of five primal elements known as earth (prithvi), water (apas), fire (agni), air (vayu) and ether (akasha). These basic elements are the manifestation of the primordial Shakti, and it is due to them that this entire universe exists!
In the ‘Srimad Devi Bhagavatam’ (Ch. 8), it says that tattwa shuddhi purifies the body elements by ‘respiratory attraction and replacement’. By concentrating on the yantra and bija mantra of each tattwa at its specific location in the body, the pranas are returned to their source as pure Shakti. At that time, sensorial awareness drops as you merge into the realm of vibration and bliss.
This meditation form leads you from the gross sensory experience to the root cause of attachment in this world- the ego, which is represented in the form of ‘Papa Purusha’, represented as a hideous dwarf living in the abdomen. By the use of the tattwa bija mantras and breath, you mentally purify, dissolve and reconstruct his being inside you into a golden egg, like hiranyagarbha. This actually helps transform your lower nature and ego. Then, by considering yourself to be the supreme knowledge or consciousness (Shiva), you attain that state of unparalleled bliss.
