From the introduction to that article:



The meaning of „Tantra“ (literally „The Waeve“):



This term is used here in its original and wide sense of a truly transformative spiritual practice outside of any religious hierarchies, mere belief systems, mental constructions, ritualism, or institutions:

Only and systematically proceeding from the seeming „ordinary“ or the „everyday“, the breathing process, the natural elements, our human body as a most highly evolved organic electrical system, or the immediate sense impressions.

It is the inner practice artfully „weaving“ the highest and the most beautiful out of the raw materials of the ordinary, the verifiable, the tangible, or the directly experiencable.


On the meaning of „Dharma“ see below:

Chapter III, and there paragraph G) „The dharmic spproach“.

This should be deeply pondered beforehand:



All known translators of the historical Buddha’s discourses in the Pali Canon, whether from the large Buddhist traditions or academia, have wrongly translated the title or the subject of the historical Buddha’s principal discourse on conscious breathing as a complete path of liberation.

This discourse is the Aana-Apaana-Sati-Sutta (Middle Length Discourses 118).

An alternative English translation.


For the explanation of the correct and totally new translation with some of the irrefutable proves see further below in the main article.


The indologically correct translation of the key term „Aana-Apaana-Sati-Sutta“ is:


The Discourse „Sutta“ on Seeing Awareness „Sati“ within the (Five Vital) Breaths „Aana“ – for the purpose of the Releasing Breath „Apaana“


It is also the title or the topic of one whole chapter of the Systematic Discourses of the Buddha with various sources – the Aana-Apaana-Samyutta (Samyutta Nikaaya 54).


Full awareness of the breathing process is the core practice of Early Buddhism.

So if one gets that title or that topic wrong, one also gets the contents of that key discourse wrong.


In brief, that principal practice discourse of the Aana-Apaana-Sati-Sutta is essentially a „Tantric“ teaching:

With the meaning of „Tantra“ only in that original sense as summarized above!







The purpose:



The following article is, in rather practical terms for everybody in our times, about the „Vedic“ roots of the later „Tantric“ teachings of ancient India:

Whether in their subtle expressions within the historical Buddha´s discourses – as passed down with the „Pali Canon“ -, in the teachings of the Old Indic father of the spiritual yoga system, Patanjali, in the elaborations by the most formative Old Indic Buddhist „Mahasiddhas“ (grand Tantric accomplished ones), especially Naropa (his famous principal work, The Six Yogas, in the best available translation) and Tilopa, or in the contemporary American „Drukama“ practice tradition (e. g. with a larger number of instructive podcasts).

The increasingly conscious process of the „Vital Breaths“ – or mastering the connected inner body energy „Winds“ (vaayu) – are the true door to the universe inside or outside!







Please Note:




That article was published on „Narrative – the World’s Online Journal“:

But „Narrative“ has closed down; and I have not chosen another American publication network yet. There is quite a number of them, with different pluses and minuses.

The pdf  of the fully formated original version can be read or downoaded just below.


The pdf appearing below (under the google viewer) contains some rather broad bars.

These bars disappear when you open this pdf with your own pdf viewer (or you download it first)!


Either opening it with your own pdf viewer or downloading the pdf can be very easily done:

Via the link „Original Öffnen“ (shown when the mouse touches it) just next to my own image – on the very right side of that google pdf version (AFTER enlarging it first).


Enjoy! You can read the pdf here or download it (see the instructions above):

A „political“ annotation:


On the hidden background of the current oppressive political agendas:


# The perpetrators of the „occult ritual“ of the corona-agenda know very well about the spiritual centrality of conscious breathing.

Here lies the „deepest“ reason for the mask wearing part of that ritual.

See e. g. Makia Freeman on that occult corona „initiation“ ritual into an oppressive „new normality“.


# That spiritual centrality of conscious breathing for the inner awakening is also the „deepest“ reason why our breathing air is systematically poisoned by the geoengineering.

See e. g. this key interview of the military insider Cody Snodgres by the „false flag“ expert Ole Dhammegaard:
