Answers

Personal

Is this course suitable for me?

Yes! It doesn’t matter whether you work in an office, or keep the home, whether you’re a construction worker or a doctor, whether you are 20 or 90 – Tantra begins wherever you are in the moment. All that is needed is a willingness to apply awareness and love, and to jump in and try! So it’s suitable for anyone who is ready to do that.

Does it matter if I haven’t practised Tantra or meditation before?

No, Tantra begins wherever you are. All you need is a willingness to practise the methods with awareness and love. It doesn’t matter whether you have practised other forms of meditation before or not.

I’ve practised lots of Tantra. Is this course advanced enough for me?

Yes! It doesn’t matter where you are on the path. All that matters is that you are willing to practice the methods, with awareness and love, and you will go to the depth that it possible for you in this moment.

Do I need a partner to practise the meditations?

No. Sutras for both singles and couples exist in the Vigyan Bhairav Tantra. You can practise Tantric meditations no matter what your situation, whether you are married, unmarried, single, in a couple, with one lover or many. All that is needed is to open yourself to the practice and it will enhance whatever is happening in your life! See also Are all the meditations about sex?

Are all the meditations about sex?

In the Vigyan Bhairav Tantra there are approximately six meditations which involve sexuality – leaving 106 about all the other aspects of life! There will be some meditations in this series which cover and involve sex and sexuality, but a whole range of meditations about the rest of life. See Description of the online classes showing the 12 facets of Tantra.

Can I practise these meditations if I am homosexual or bi-sexual?

Yes, you can practise these meditations whatever your sexual orientation.

Does it matter what my religious or spiritual beliefs are?

No. Many spiritual masters and religions have taken inspiration from the Vigyan Bhairav Tantra. The methods offered are just that – methods. They don’t come with any philosophy or dogma; you don’t have to believe in any particular view of the world to practise them. All you need is a willingness to give them a try!

Do I need to follow Osho to take part in this series?

Not at all. Osho spoke extensively about the Vigyan Bhairav Tantra; and his discourses on it, which form The Book of Secrets, can be a wonderful companion to the series. But it isn’t necessary to follow Osho, and no prior knowledge of Osho or belief in his way of life is necessary to take part in and enjoy this series.

Can I fit the practices into my busy life?

Yes. The meditations can be woven into daily life. Some take only a few minutes to practise; others may take up to an hour. Sarita offers different time variations for many of the meditations, so you can choose to practise it for a shorter or longer period. And some of them can be done while you are carrying out the activities of your daily life.

Do I need to be in a good state of health?

For some of the meditations, yes; for some of them it doesn’t matter so much. You should be able to find something that fits with your state of health. Often there are variations you can practise depending on your physical ability, and you can always ask Sarita for a variation to fit your circumstance.

Am I too young or too old for this course?

Probably not! Sarita started on the path of Tantra when she was only 17. Many older people are attracted to practise Tantra – there is no upper age limit. You may need to adapt some of the meditations depending on your state of health, But Sarita can advise you on this.

What do I wear to practise the meditations?

Something loose and comfortable is best, such as the kind of thing you would wear to do exercise in. It’s best not to wear anything too tight, especially on the belly.

How do I email Sarita my question?

If you would like to email Sarita a question, you will need to Register for the series and you will be given a dedicated email address for Sarita.

How long will Sarita take to answer my question?

That depends on her schedule at any given time – hopefully within a week. Sarita may not reply directly to every question – especially if many people are asking the same question. She will either answer it directly by email or she may post the answer (anonymously if you wish) on her blog.

Where can I find a copy of the sutras given in the class?

Each class comes with a set of notes detailing the sutras and any quotes or poems Sarita has used. These will be available where you access your video class and can be read online or printed. You can also find the sutras in Osho’s Book of Secrets. Page numbers are indicated on the notes.
