Dhāraṇā 104(Lakshmanjoo) / 105(Jaideva Singh) / 105(Paul Reps) / VBT 47(Osho)


भिया सर्वं रवयति सर्वगो व्यापकोऽखिले
इति भैरवशब्दस्य संततोच्चारणाच्छिवः
bhiyā sarvaṁ ravayati sarvago vyāpako’khile
iti bhairavaśabdasya saṁtatoccāraṇācchivaḥ [Lakshmanjoo]

Bhairava is one who with His luminous consciousness makes every thing resound or who being of luminous consciousness joined with kriyāśakti comprehends the whole universe, who gives everything, who pervades the entire cosmos. Therefore by reciting the word Bhairava incessantly one becomes Śiva. [Jaideva Singh]

ENTER THE SOUND OF YOUR NAME AND, THROUGH THIS SOUND, ALL SOUNDS. [Paul Reps · Osho]

進入你底名字的音聲之中,並由此聲而入衆聲。 [徐進夫]

進入你名字的聲音,透過這個聲音,所有的聲音。 [謙達那]

進入你名字的聲音,透過此聲音,一切的聲音。 [桑雅]

[譯解比對]
     Paul Reps對Vijñānabhairava的英譯傾向於意譯乃至詩意化, 這在此句經文尤其明顯. 只有他將需進入的聲音譯解為“your name”──自己的名字. 其他各家皆按原句所示, 因此該聲音即“Bhairava”——Vijñānabhairava篇名所題之神. 也就是說, 需進入與呼喊的聲音為Bhairava此神的尊名.
     自Lakshmanjo開始, 幾位註釋者皆對Bhairava這個字的首尾結構作了釋義. Lakshmanjo的解析是Bha—威脅, 恐懼; Ra—尖叫, 喊叫; Va—遍滿, 臨在, 神性意識的臨在. 此技巧的修習者, 當他極其畏怖地高喊「喔, Bhairava, 神啊, 保護我, 我已到盡頭了……」, 正是在這麼強烈且不中斷的情感意志下Bhairava的含義完全彰顯, 修習者蛻變為Bhairava, 任何恐懼皆不復見.
     Jaideva Singh對Bhairava一詞有著不盡相同的分析. Bhā是指光, 意識之光; ai象徵活動力; rava有出現在經文裡的ravayati之義, 即領會, 含括. 於是Bhairava可解作「那意識之光結合了活動之力量者領會了全體宇宙即祂自身」. 他又援引了Abhinvavagupta對Bhairava的幾種解釋:宇宙的支持與保護者; 那經常振響偉大梵咒—“I”, 即我—之人; 祂將無畏給予那些對無常輪迴感到恐懼的人們.
     Lilian Silburn的註解近似Jaideva Singh, 進一步點明前述的梵咒“I”即梵語的AHAM, 以及Rava是等同於自性覺知的宇宙共振或意識脈動. 這兩位皆強調對Bhairava的呼喊不該變成機械性的頌念, 而要發自內心, 那包括內化的呼吸能量, suṣumna即中脈, 來到dvādaśānta即呼吸能量的含攝點或Brahmarandhra即頂輪, 而與Bhairava合一.
     Lorin Roche對Bhairava所含的畏怖之義別具想法.
     奧修依循Paul Reps的翻譯, 對於進入該聲音是從自己的名字開始談起, 於是此技巧增添了心理層面, 潛意識和自我意識的作用. 接著他提到傳統上會以神的名字來命名, 於是孩子的名字同時成為神對他與家人的揭示. 然後奧修以跋彌仙人, 印度Raga音樂, 乃至部隊行軍, 阿里巴巴寓言為例, 說明了梵咒頌念與聲音能量的精微原理.

bhiyā sarvaṁ ravayati

iti bhairavaśabdasya
saṁtatoccāraṇācchivaḥ // 130 //

     Just find out the meaning of “bhairava“. When you want to find out the meaning of “bhairava“, you have to explain these three letters of “bhairava“: “bha“, “ra“, and “va“. “Bha" means, threat, fear. “Ra" means, screaming, crying, “Va" means, all-pervading, present—-the presence of God consciousness. There you find the presence of God consciousness. When you scream [to God] in fear, God is there.
     BRUCE: Does it mean the intensity of that experience?
SWAMIJI: The intensity of that fear. The fear that [causes one to scream)], “O God, protect me! I am finished! I am ruined!"
     BRUCE: Why is it at that moment that God consciousness is more accessible?
     SWAMIJI: Because when you want It…..when you scream, you want It. It means you are screaming for wanting the support of God. You just scream and God is there.
     ERNIE: But then why wouldn’t it be also available to you if you didn’t cry, if you were afraid, but didn’t…..?
     SWAMIJI: But you don’t want to have It. There, you don’t want to have It. When you scream [for It], you want to have It. When you cry [for It], you want to have It. There is the urge for having That support. If you don’t scream [for God], there is no urge for having that God to support you.
     ERNIE: So really, this is just about fear.
     SWAMIJI: Fear, yes.
     ERNIE: This technique is just about fear.
     SWAMIJI: When you are afraid, He is your refuge.
     BRUCE: But you don’t…..it’s not a mental; you do not think that you want Him and then you scream. It’s automatic.
     SWAMIJI: No, it is just the explanation of “bhairava“, what is the state of Bhairava. “Bhairava" means, when you are afraid and scream [to Him], He is there. Vyāpakaḥ means, He is pervading, He is there.
     Iti bhairava śabdasya, when you find out and when you want to explain, discriminate, the state of Bhairava, this word “bhairava“, samtatoccāraṇāt, in continuity, you will become Bhairava. When you become yourself Bhairava, what fear is there?
     This is śāktopāya.

Verse 107 –
Dhāraṇā 81(Lakshmanjoo) / 83(Jaideva Singh) / 82(Paul Reps) / VBT 106(Osho)


स्ववदन्यशरीरेऽपि संवित्तिमनुभावयेत्
अपेक्षां स्वशरीरस्य त्यक्त्वा व्यापी दिनैर्भवेत्
svavadanyaśarīre’pi saṁvittimanubhāvayet
āpekṣāṁ svaśarīrasya tyaktvā vyāpī dinairbhavet [Lakshmanjoo]

One should, leaving aside the need of his own body (in other ases), contemplate that the (same) consciousness is present in other bodies as in his own. Thus he will become all-pervasive in a few days. [Jaideva Singh]

FEEL THE CONSCIOUSNESS OF EACH PERSON AS YOUR OWN CONSCIOUSNESS. SO, LEAVING ASIDE CONCERN FOR SELF, BECOME EACH BEING. [Paul Reps · Osho]

把每一個人的意識作爲你自己的意識加以體會,如此則放開自我的關注而成爲每一個人。[徐進夫]

將每一個人的意識感覺成你自己的意識,所以,不要顧慮到自己,變成每一個人。 [謙達那]

感覺每個人的意識有如你自己的意識。因此,拋開對自身的顧慮,成為每一個存在。 [桑雅]

[譯解比對]
     除了Jaideva Singh, 其他幾位都指出與他人情感或感受方面程度不一的連繫. Lakshmanjoo的說明是從近於同情心的連結開始, 再到己身的自我意識轉變成神性意識. Lorin Roche明確點出慈悲心, 然後與Lakshmanjoo一樣談到共同承受, 接著是他對經文裡的śarīra即身體如何靜心冥思的一些個人體會.
     Silburn強調了anubhū一詞—全然擁抱, 強烈體驗, 對等——的豐富含義以及在此經句裡的核心位置. 藉由這般強烈的共振, 對自身的顧慮消失了, 與他人的界線模糊了, 於是超越所有對立的遍在合一就能清楚顯現.
     另外, Silburn引“Kaumudi”(16或17世紀Vijñānabhairava註釋者Ānanda Bhaṭṭa的著作)提出第二種解釋, 即經文裡的他人, 他人身體其實是指Śiva的宇宙身體. Jaideva Singh或許就是依循此種理解, 所以對經文的譯解為意識應不受己身限制, 同於他人進而全體遍滿, 實現Bhairava的本性.
     奧修對此同一的意識是從感覺到對方談起, 而這意味著能將每個人感受為自由, 珍貴的生命與存在. 他也瞭解對現代人而言要在生活裡維持此狀態是困難的, 於是奧修具體建議每天一小時在樹木, 花朵, 天空, 河流等容易親近, 且是自己所愛的事物上面練習這樣的同理心. 然後再進展為對每一個經過身邊, 出現在四周的人都能如此同感, 甚至感覺到他人為中心點, 自己成了外圍. 最終來到與宇宙全體的密切交流, 而那才是祈禱最初的意義.

     Put your consciousness of feeling in other living beings also, in the same way [as for yourself]. As you would feel the prick of a needle in your body paining you, feel the prick of a needle in some other’s body. Feel that way also, that way, too.
     Don’t laugh at that prick [upon another], don’t weep at your own prick. If you get a prick on your body, you will weep. If you get a prick on some other’s body, you will laugh, you will just enjoy. It is not to be done. Put your consciousness in each and every being just like you have put [it] in your own body.
     Apekṣāṁ svaśarīrasya tyaktvā. What will be the fruit of this act? Do you know what will be the fruit of this act? The fruit of this act will be that you will lose, day by day, the I- consciousness of your body, and this universal consciousness, God consciousness, will get its rise day by day.

Verse 51 –
Dhāraṇā 28(Lakshmanjoo) / 28(Jaideva Singh) / 27(Paul Reps) / VBT 6(Osho)


यथा तथा यत्र तत्र द्वादशान्ते मनः क्षिपेत् ।
प्रतिक्षणं क्षीणवृत्ते-र्वैलक्षण्यं दिनैर्भवेत् ।।५१।।
yathā tathā yatra tatra dvādaśānte manaḥ kṣipet /
pratikṣaṇaṁ kṣīṇavṛtter-vailakṣaṇyaṁ dinairbhavet [Lakshmanjoo]

If one fixes one’s mind at dvādaśānta again and again (pratikṣaṇaṃ) howsoever and wheresoever, the fluctuation of his mind will diminish and in a few days, he will acquire an extraordinary status. [Jaideva Singh]

WHEN IN WORLDLY ACTIVITY, KEEP ATTENTION BETWEEN TWO BREATHS, AND SO PRACTICING, IN A FEW DAYS BE BORN ANEW. (Lakshmanjoo says this is his favorite.) [Paul Reps · Osho]

在從事世間的工作時不息凝注於兩息之間,如此練習,不數日即可新生。(拉克希曼爾喬說這是他所做的修持方法之一。) [徐進夫]

當處於世俗的活動之中,將注意力放在兩個呼吸之間,以這樣的方式來練習,在幾天之內就會重新誕生。 [謙達那]

處在世間活動時,始終凝神於兩氣息之間,如此練習,不需幾日即獲新生。 [桑雅]

[譯解比對]
原文裡的dvādaśānte, 雖然在Verse24至27即VBT1至4關於呼吸的技巧並沒有出現, Lakshmanjoo解說時有談到這是呼吸在外部的轉換點(bāhya dvādaśānta, 內部則是hṛdaya). 不知Paul Reps是否因此將其譯為"between two breaths". 在解說中Lakshmanjoo是將dvādaśānte定義為身體裡的中心, 而且任何中心皆有可能:「此dvādaśānta狀態並非僅只在兩眉之間, 也不是只在喉部凹陷處, 亦非僅在心.」
不過他也提及找到此中心的方式為「吸氣進來, 吐氣出去, 於是熟悉這個中心.」Jaideva Singh的解釋是應從身體將意識定著在任何dvādaśānta, 無論它是外部的或是內部的(āntata dvādaśānta). 奧修先是延續他對VBT1的解說, 即觀照點為呼吸內外的兩個空隙, 隨後亦論及到中心處. Silburn則認為應專注在上方頭部的中心.
另外Lakshmanjoo還提到對此中心應該加以視覺化.
Yathā tathā yatra tatra, Lakshmanjoo的解釋主要為日常例行的行為舉止, 也就是Paul Reps的"worldly activity". Jaideva Singh的"howsoever and wheresoever"以及Silburn的"anyway and wherever you are"含有時地行為加上狀態之意. 奧修在這點上更有發揮, 談到了人生戲劇, 命定的角色. 於是原本此技巧可能容易被解讀為在日常行為中分開注意力, 傾向於保存能量與意識, 奧修的詮釋則進一步探入本體層面的顯現, 也因此與其他涉及內心情緒狀態的VBT技巧有所聯結.

[各家原文與譯解]
Lakshmanjoo
यथा तथा यत्र तत्र
द्वादशान्ते मनः क्षिपेत् ।
प्रतिक्षणं क्षीणवृत्ते-
र्वैलक्षण्यं दिनैर्भवेत् ।।५१।।
yathā tathā yatra tatra
dvādaśānte manaḥ kṣipet /
pratikṣaṇaṁ kṣīṇavṛtter-
vailakṣaṇyaṁ dinairbhavet // 51 //

Next, fifty-one.
Or, in each and every action, focus your mind in dvādaśānta. Yathā tathā yatra tatra dvādaśānte manaḥ kṣipet, when you are walking or talking, or doing some household work, or doing any other nonsense act, just concentrate your mind on [any] dvādaśānta. Your mind must hold the state of dvādaśānta in each and every act of your daily routine of life. But this must be held in continuity (pratikṣaṇa). Then, one is born anew. One is born anew in days, not in months. Vailakṣaṇyaṁ dinair bhavet, some days will take place and he will be born anew, he will become new, all-round new.

This is āṇavopāya towards śāmbhavopāya.
JOHN: Both fifty and fifty-one are āṇavopāya?
SWAMIJI: Fifty is śāktopāya. Fifty-one is āṇavopāya to śāmbhavopāya.
DEVOTEE: How is the area of dvādaśānta found?
SWAMIJI: For instance, I have put the [spectacles] in my case and I am taking it [out]. Just do all these [mundane] actions in that, in that awareness of dvādaśānta. That state must be held in each and every act, in continuity. If [yeur awareness] remains in continuity, then you will be born anew in days, not in months. Some days will be…..
DEVOTEE: ….enough.
SWAMIJI: Um, yes.
For this śloka, “kṣanair bhavet" is another reading. Vailakṣaṇ-yaṁ, vailakṣaṇātha, something new will happen to hìm,not in days, [but] in moments—vailakṣaṇyaṁ kṣanair bhavet.
JOHN: And the other reading is, “after some time"
SWAMIJI: In days, in days, not in months. It won’t take a month. In a few days, you will get that bliss.
JAGDISH: “Kṣīṇa vṛtter" is the sādhaka?
SWAMIJI: Kṣīṇa vṛtter sādhakasya, the sādhaka who is kṣīṇa vṛtter, whose mind is just one-pointed, who has become one pointed, [this happens] to him, not to that sadhaka whose mind is not one-pointed.
GEORGE: Is dvādaśānta a state or dvādaśānta is the heart?
SWAMIJI: No, dvādaśānta is the center, any center. Wherever you go, if you are talking, put your mind in the center. If you are laughing, put there also your mind in the center. That is to be done. It is not to just only laugh. While laughing, you have to put your mind in the center While making jokes, put your mind in the center without a break. Because the center, once you have realized [it]—you just breathe in and breathe out and be acquainted with the center—and that center you have to visualize in each and every movement of your livelihood. It must come into your vision. That is…..
JOHN: State of dvādaśānta.
SWAMIJI: ….dvādaśānta.
Yathā tathā yatra tatra, it is not only in the pūjā room, the meditation room. While walking, while doing any absurd things, dvādaśānte manaḥ kṣipet, the mind must be centered in dvādaśānta. Any movement, in any movement, not once, not twice, not thrice, [but] pratikṣaṇa, in continuity you have to put that mund in dvādaśānta. Then kṣīṇa vṛtter, his mind will cease to function. His mind will cease to function altogether and he will become a new man in some moments, or in a few days, not months. Then nothing is to be done afterwards. Then his everything is there.
The state of dvādaśānta is not only between the two eyebrows, [or] only [in the throat pit], [or] only in the heart.
GEORGE: That center, any center.
SWAMIJI: Any center!
GEORGE: Yes.
SWAMIJI: Bas, you must visualize it. You must keep it in vision and then put your mind breaklessly [there], without a break, then you will become new within days, or within moments.

Verse 96 –
Dhāraṇā 71(Lakshmanjoo) / 73(Jaideva Singh) / 71(Paul Reps) / VBT 26(Osho)


झगितीच्छां समुत्पन्ना-मवलोक्य शमं नयेत् ।

jhagitīcchāṁ samutpannām-avalokya śamaṁ nayet /
yata eva samudbhūtā tatastatraiva līyate [Lakshmanjoo]

Having observed a desire that has sprung up, the aspirant should put an end to it immediately. It will be absorbed in that very place from which it arose. [Jaideva Singh]

WHEN SOME DESIRE COMES, CONSIDER IT. THEN, SUDDENLY, QUIT IT. [Paul Reps · Osho]

慾望來時,思之。而後猝然棄之。 [徐進夫]

當某一個慾望來臨,考慮它,然後,突然間,停止它。 [謙達那]

當某個慾望出現,正視它。於是,突然地,免除它。 [桑雅]

[譯解比對]
     如同出入息, 音聲, 目光等等, 在慾望和情緒波動時的「不動心」「平等心」亦為VBT112個技巧中的一大類別. 此技巧的重點為免除, 消去.
     奧修與Lakshmanjoo, Jaideva Singh, Silburn的不同之處在於, 他強調必須先能不去壓抑, 不受任何新舊觀念制約地正視和審視. 如果這確實成為優先條件, 那麼在面對該慾求時, 能做的很可能只有讓自己進入那慾望行為. 然而奧修認為, 就像他在解說裡所舉的生動例證, 正是在慾望散布全身, 翻攪全身時仍能正對著它, 仔細地看著它, 那才是擺脫它和去除它的正確時刻.
     其他三位談的則是需趁慾望初生未現之際立即結束它. 同時很重要的是, 覺知能夠轉向與進入慾望的源起地, 也就是在兩慾望之間潛伏的靈性實體(unmeṣa), 亦即神性意識.
     Lorin Roche的看法為靜心者可以去選擇這兩個方向, 本身的態度則較像是傾向奧修. 他在解說中提到desire的拉丁字源據說為de sidere, 意思是來自天上諸星.

[各家原文與譯解]
Lakshmanjoo
झगितीच्छां समुत्पन्ना-
मवलोक्य शमं नयेत् ।
यत एव समुद्भूता

jhagitīcchāṁ samutpannām-
avalokya śamaṁ nayet /
yata eva samudbhūtā
tatastatraiva līyate // 96 //

     When any desire comes in your mind, let it come, let it flow out. As soon as this desire flows out, put an end to it at once. Do not let it function at all. As soon as it begins to function, let this functioning be seized by your force of concentration, awareness. And then, wherefrom this desire had risen, it is dissolved in that point again, and then you enter into that desirelessness.
     DEVOTEE: Is that desire to be resisted, sir?
     SWAMIJI: not resisted—abolished, because it is that point of beginning. It must flow out. That energy, when it flows out, at the point when it flows out—it has not (yet) flown—it begins to flow and then stop it, at that very moment.
     This is śāmbhavopāya. This is not śāktopāya. This is śāmbhavopāya because, at that very first start of desire, you enter in the desire-less state, the thought-less state of God consciousness.
     DEVOTEE: This is why it is called “icchopāya“.
     SWAMIJI: Icchopāya, it is śāmbhavopāya.

Verse 47 –
Dhāraṇā 24(Lakshmanjoo) / 24(Jaideva Singh) / 23(Paul Reps) / VBT 94(Osho)


सर्वं देहगतं द्रव्यं वियद्व्याप्तं मृगेक्षणे
विभावयेत्ततस्तस्य भावना सा स्थिरा भवेत्
sarvaṁ dehagataṁ dravyaṁ viyadvyāptaṁ mṛgekṣaṇe
vibhāvayettatastasya bhāvanā sā sthirā bhavet [Lakshmanjoo]

O gazelle-eyed one, (if the aspirant is incapable of śūnyabhāva immediately), let him contemplate over the constituents of his body like bone, flesh, etc. as pervaded with mere vacuity. (After this practice), his bhāvanā (contemplation) of vacuity will become steady, (and at last he will experience the light of consciousness). [Jaideva Singh]

FEEL YOUR SUBSTANCE, BONES, FLESH, BLOOD, SATURATED WITH THE COSMIC ESSENCE. [Paul Reps · Osho]

感覺你的實體、骨頭、肌肉,以及血液都充滿字宙的精華。 [徐進夫]

感覺你的實質、骨頭、肉、和血液被宇宙的本質所充滿。 [謙達那]

感覺你的實體,骨,肉,血,浸透著宇宙精華。 [桑雅]

[譯解比對]
sarvaṁ dehagataṁ dravyaṁ字面上的意思依Lakshmanjoo所說是存在於身體裡的物質,因此從他自己到Paul Reps,Jaideva Singh,Lilian Silburn皆釋義為骨,血,肉等等。Silburn多加了一句「無論它外在形象為何」。
Paul Reps所譯的「浸透」,在Lorin Roche的解說可對應經文裡的bhavana,因其含有infusion之意。不過Lakshmanjoo和Jaideva Singh則將bhavana譯為覺知或沉思。
對於接在「身體裡的物質」也就是骨血肉後面的經文,Lakshmanjoo的解釋是想像它們內部什麼都沒有,是中空的;於是建立起空無,空性的覺知。Jaideva Singh所說的是求學者先建立空性再沉思身體裡的組織為其滲透(pervaded)。Silburn則有兩種解釋。讓身體物質灌注著(imbue)能夠振奮且和緩的氣體——這近似Paul Reps的「宇宙精華」。或者讓那身體稀釋,有如擴充並散布自身至天空或無盡的空無。後者根據Vijñānakaumudī,作者是16或17世紀的Ānanda Bhaṭṭa。
奧修的解說相當重視浸透,他認為要能瞭解身體是多孔洞的,可滲透的,內部流動著生命能量。而在觀想身體為宇宙精華所浸透或灌注之前,奧修建議一開始應從個人心情做起,而且是先嘗試負向再轉為正向,如此實踐才有效果。決心修行入道之人應慎重以對。

This is also śāktopāya.
Just imagine that dravyam, the material, deha gatam, that is existing in your body (flesh, bones, and marrow, those are existing in your body), just imagine there is nothing inside.
DENISE: It’s hollow?
SWAMIJI: It is hollow there. Then that awareness on the void becomes established. Tatas tasya bhāvana sā, sā bhāvanā sthirā bhavet, that awareness, that state of awareness on the void, becomes established (sthirā bhavet). It becomes firm and so enters in the nirvikalpa state of samadhi.
This is śāktopāya, pure śāktopāya.

Verse 122 –
Dhāraṇā 96(Lakshmanjoo) / 97(Jaideva Singh) / 97(Paul Reps) / VBT 23(Osho)


वस्त्वन्तरे वेद्यमाने शनैर्वस्तुषु शून्यता
तामेव मनसा ध्यात्वा विदितोऽपि प्रशाम्यति
vastvantare vedyamāne śanairvastuṣu śūnyatā
tāmeva manasā dhyātvā vidito’pi praśāmyati [Lakshmanjoo]

When one perceives a particular object, vacuity is established regarding all other objects. If one contemplates on this vacuity with mind freed of all thought, then even though the particular object be still known or perceived, the aspirant has full tranquillity. [Jaideva Singh]

FEEL AN OBJECT BEFORE YOU. FEEL THE ABSENCE OF ALL OTHER OBJECTS BUT THIS ONE. THEN, LEAVING ASIDE THE OBJECT-FEELING AND THE ABSENCE-FEELING, REALIZE. [Paul Reps · Osho]

觸摸你眼前的一件東西。感知所有其他的一切東西皆不在你的面前——除了這一件。而後,丟開那東西的感覺和不在的感覺,予以體會。 [徐進夫]

感覺放在你面前的客體,除了這個客體之外,感覺其他所有客體的不在,然後,將這個客體的感覺和那個不在的感覺擺在一旁,達成。 [謙達那]

感覺你面前的某個事物,感覺除此之外其他所有事物都不存在。這時,拋掉事物存在之感與不存在之感,體悟。 [桑雅]

[譯解比對]
Lakshmanjoo對Vastvantare的解釋是"在這之前", 也就是此刻之前所察覺到的. 於是此技巧的練習方式為在察覺(vedyamāne)當前的事物時, 立即想到先前所察覺的事物, 若先前事物浮現了, 就再往前推, 直到所有事物都溶化在空無之中(śanair vastuṣu śūnyata).
然而Jaideva Singh, Silburn, 以及奧修的解釋皆非如此. 前兩位認為那個空無是修學者的意識完全在一個事物上, 以致在它之外的所有事物都溶解所形成的. 此時他的意識或分別心再溶入這空無, 因此進入了神性意識——無論原本那一個事物是否還在.
奧修與這兩位又有些不同. 他說先是專注在面前這一個事物, 忘掉其他所有一切, 然後連此事物都忘掉. 這時仍留下來的就是純然的空無, 是所有客體都消失後所顯現的主體意識之光.
Lorin Roche的Radiances Sutras是從個人的體會出發, 並參照各版本的譯註和Monier-Williams等梵英辭典而著成. 對於Vastvantare的解釋他分為字首Vastu: 成為光, 成為黎明, 任何真實存在實體或本質的座落處; 以及字尾Antare: 在其之間, 位於其中.
奧修另外強調, 需先完成前半段即僅剩一個對象在意識裡, 然後才去作後半段的溶於空無之中.

When you perceive something (e.g., you perceive this stand), at the time of the perception of this stand, don’t think of this stand, think of what you have perceived before that (that is vastvantara; vastvantara is, another object which you have perceived already, before that). At the time of perceiving this present object, don’t perceive this present object, go to that previous object. Vastvantare vedyamāne śanair vastuṣu śūnyata, by doing this technique—what will happen?—you won’t find, you won’t perceive, anything in this world. You won’t perceive anything. Śanair vastuṣu śūnyata, all objects will melt in nothingness, by and by. Tāmeva manasā dhyātva, and, through your mind, focus on that nothingness, how all these objects are dissolved in nothingness in the end.
Because, when I perceive Stephanie, [and] then I perceive Ellen, at the time of perceiving Ellen, I must perceive Stephanie. At the time I am perceiving Ernie, I must perceive Ellen. So it works like this, that everything becomes dissolved in nothingness. You don’t perceive anything. When you perceive a pencil, you perceive this [previous object]; at the time of perceiving this, you perceive this; at the time of perceiving this, you perceive this. So you will neither perceive this, nor this, nor this. There will be only śūnya, nothingness. Nothingness will appear in you, in the cycle of the objective world—-śanair vastuṣu śūnyata tāmeva manasā dhyātvā.
[Then] vidito’pi, after going in the cycle of perception also, you will enter in the appeased position of God consciousness (praśāmyati; praśāmyati is the appeased state of God consciousness where there is nothing).
This is śāktopaya.

Dhāraṇā 95(Lakshmanjoo) / 96(Jaideva Singh) / 96(Paul Reps) / VBT 29(Osho)


भक्त्युद्रेकाद्विरक्तस्य यादृशी जायते मतिः ।
सा शक्तिः शाङ्करी नित्यं भावयेत्तां ततः शिवः ।।१२१।।
bhaktyudrekādviraktasya yādṛśī jāyate matiḥ /
sā śaktiḥ śāṅkarī nityaṁ bhāvayettām tataḥ śivaḥ // 121 // [Lakshmanjoo]

The sort of intuition (mati) that emerges through the intensity of devotion in one who is perfectly detached is known as śakti of śaṅkara. One should contemplate on it perpetually. Then he becomes Śiva Himself. [Jaideva Singh]

DEVOTION FREES. [Paul Reps · Osho]

誠敬可得自在。 [徐進夫]

奉獻使人解脱。 [謙達那]

奉獻而自由。 [桑雅]

[譯解比對]
Lakshmanjoo, Jaideva Singh, 和Silburn皆將bhakti, 奉獻的對象指明為神, 即經文中的Śiva (tataḥ Śivaḥ), 且需持以棄俗, 拋開世間種種執著的態度. 此條件滿足後三人都談到經文裡的mati, 動態式的直觀. Silburn的說明為此介於智性與成道之間的mati, 可再轉成citi即已不受激情束縛的純淨意識, 最後顯現出śakti—-Rudra(亦即Śiva)的仁善能量.
Lorin Roche和Osho則從愛談起. Roche認為在Bhakti yoga裡各種人間性質的情感都可以與神產生關聯, 包括激越情愛, 平等友誼, 甚至是將自己當作了父母, 神當作了孩子般的關照與呵護.
奧修則細述了感覺的心靈, 無須證明的信任, 以及自我隱沒並讓另一個人成為中心—-直到能為對方而活而死. 此與藏傳修心系統的自他交換頗為吻合. 文中舉出Meera及Ramakrishna, 可謂Bhakti虔信派, 宗教奉獻情感的極佳例證.

There is another technique. That the intensity of love for God, the intensity [of devotion] ——bhakti udrekā.
When there is the intensity of love, you can’t understand anything else in this world. When there is the intensity of love for God, you won’t recognize Viresh, you won’t recognize John, you won’t recognize your body, you won’t recognize anything in this world. Viraktasya, vairāgya (detachment ) appears from all sides except for that intensity of love of God
Bhakti udrekā, by the intensity of love for the Lord, viraktasva, when detachment rises in your mind, yādṛśī jāyate matiḥ, and that position of your intellectual cycle at that time, the state of that intellectual cycle of yours, is [no longer] intellectual, is [no longer] the element of intellect in you, sā śaktiḥ śāṅkarī, that is the energy of God consciousness. That intellect is transformed in the energy of God consciousness, and you should perceive that this energy is the real energy. [By] detachment, being detached from all sides because of the intensity of love towards the Lord, bhāvayet you will find out that tataḥśivaḥ, you will become one with Śiva.
This is śāmbhavopäya, the technique of śāmbhavopāva.

Verse 38 –
Dhāraṇā 15(Lakshmanjoo) / 15(Jaideva Singh) / 14(Paul Reps) / VBT 38(Osho)


अनाहते पात्रकर्णे-ऽभग्नशब्दे सरिद्द्रुते
शब्दब्रह्मणि निष्णातः परं ब्रह्माधिगच्छति
anāhate pātrakarṇe-‘bhagnaśabde sariddrute
śabdabrahmaṇi niṣṇātaḥ param brahmādhigacchati [Lakshmanjoo]

One who is deeply versed and deeply bathed or steeped in Nāda which is Brahman in the form of sound (śabdabrahmaṇi niṣṇātaḥ), which is vibrating inside without any impact (anāhate), which can be heard only by the ear that becomes competent by yoga (pātrakarṇe), which goes on sounding like a river (sariddrute) attains to Brahman (brahmādhigacchati). [Jaideva Singh]

BATHE IN THE CENTER OF SOUND, AS IN THE CONTINUOUS SOUND OF A WATERFALL. OR, BY PUTTING THE FINGERS IN THE EARS, HEAR THE SOUND OF SOUNDS. [Paul Reps · Osho]

沐浴於音響中心,一似沐浴於瀑布底連續聲音之間,或以手指塞住耳孔,而後聽那泉聲之音。 [徐進夫]

沐浴在聲音當中,就好像在持續的瀑布聲裡,或者,用手指頭塞住耳朵,聽眾音的聲音。 [謙達那]

沐浴在聲音的中心,如同身在連綿的瀑布聲裡。或者,藉由手指堵住耳朵,聽見聲中之聲。 [桑雅]

[譯解比對]
原文裡聲中之聲, anāhate, 是首先提及的. 它的性質是pātrakarṇe, 亦即自行顯現, 不似一般聲音由物體摩擦和空氣振動所產生. 此等聲音(nāda)需足夠功力的瑜伽士才能聽見. 而沐浴(niṣṇātaḥ)在這如溪水連綿(bhagnaśabde sariddrute)的anāhate即最深的梵音(śabdabrahmaṇi)之中就是與梵天合一(brahmādhigacchati). 在Jaideva Singh和Silburn的解說裡引用了濕婆瑜伽, 早期奧義書, Nātha傳統, 以及Kabīra, Sainte Thérèse, 喀什米爾的Lallā等古經書宗派與聖人對此梵音作出印證.
不過Lakshmanjoo將bhagnaśabde sariddrute解釋為任何如瀑布溪水般連綿不絕的聲音, 並且明確指出修學者可直接冥思內在的梵音, 或者也可從外在的連綿之聲開始. 可能因為這樣, Paul Reps將"or"用在他的英譯裡. 手指堵住耳朵也是Lakshmanjoo解說中的建議作法.
奧修的解說按照Paul Reps的翻譯順序, 也如Lakshmanjoo區分為外在的連綿聲音與內在的聲中之聲. 然而他對兩種聲音都有更為詳盡, 結合科學與靈修經驗的精闢詮釋. 尤其他強調不該因為譯文中出現"或者", 練習時就只選一種去做. 他認為兩者應各以數月時間輪替進行, 如此在兩極之間移動才能證得生命的真義. 而這一向都是奧修對譚崔密宗, 對靜心, 對門徒運動所抱持的基本態度.

[各家原文與譯解]
Lakshmanjoo
अनाहते पात्रकर्णे-
ऽभग्नशब्दे सरिद्द्रुते ।

anāhate pātrakarṇe-
‘bhagnaśabde sariddrute /
śabdabrahmaṇi niṣṇātaḥ
param brahmādhigacchati // 38 //

That sound which is un-struck is called anāhata.
[You must] pātra karṇe. Pātra karṇe means, [to meditate on the un-struck sound] which is heard in your own ears, the sound which does not come from outward sources, which is heard only in your ears—pātra karṇe. That is pātra karṇe (pātraṁ karṇau yasya).
Or, if you can’t meditate on the anāhata sound , [then] when any sound is produced without a break (abhagna śabde). Abhagna śabde means, that sound which has no breakage. The sound of a waterfall, it is without breakage—-that is abhagna śabde. To that [point], He explains, to make it clear. He says, sarit drute, just like the vega (the flow) of sarit (a stream), which is flowing in great speed, great velocity. That is sarit drute. Śabda brahmaṇi, that is śabda brahma, that is that sound which is one with Brahman.
And, in that śabda brahmani, whoever is niṣṇātaḥ, whoever has taken a bath, taken a dip (niṣṇātaḥ; niḥśeṣaṇa snāta, niṣṇātaḥ), paraṁ brahmādhi gacchati, he is sentenced to paraṁ brahma, he enters in the state of paraṁ brahma.
This is śāktopāya because there is no mantra. There is nothing of that sort to be done—-no mantra, no recitation, no breathing exercise. It is only just to concentrate on the continuity of that sound, waterfall, or anāhata śabda, [but] not both. Anāhata or a waterfall.
For instance, you put [your] fingers on [your] ears, you’ll find anāhata dhvani. Or, you put your hands just like a ball, cup shape [over your ears], you’ll feel that sound, the continuity of that sound. Just contemplate on that sound.
This is śāktopāya, pure śāktopāya.

Verse 24 –
Dhāraṇā 1(Lakshmanjoo) / 1(Jaideva Singh) / 1(Paul Reps) / VBT 1(Osho)


ऊर्ध्वे प्राणो ह्यधो अधो जीवो विसर्गात्मा परोच्चरेत्
उत्पत्तिद्वितयस्थाने, भरणाद्भरिता स्थितिः
ūrdhve prāṇo hyadho jīvo visargātmā paroccaret
utpattidvitayasthāne bharaṇādbharitā sthitiḥ [Lakshmanjoo]

Parā devī or Highest Śakti who is of the nature of visarga goes on (ceaselessly) expressing herself upward (ūrdhve) (from the centre of the body to dvādaśānta or a distance of twelve fingers) in the form of exhalation (prāṇa) and downward (adhaḥ) (from dvādaśānta to the centre of the body) In the form of inhalation (jiva or apāna). By steady fixation of the mind (bharaṇāt) at the two places of their origin (viz., centre of the body in the case of prāṇa and dvādaśānta in the case of apāna), there is the situation of plenitude (bharitāsthitiḥ which is the state of parāśakti or nature of Bhairava). [Jaideva Singh]

Radiant one, this experience may dawn between two breaths. After breath comes in (down) and just before turning up (out) — the beneficence. [Paul Reps · Osho]

光彩四溢的人呀,這個經驗可在一呼一吸之間明朗。 在吸氣完了(下)而呼氣將畢(上)之前——慈善。 [徐進夫]

發光的人,這個經驗可能會出現在兩個呼吸之間。在氣進入之後,以及就在它要出來之前——那個恩典。 [謙達那]

燦爛之人啊,這樣的體驗會在兩個氣息之間露出曙光。當氣進來(往下)後,正要轉上(往外)之前──慈恩。 [桑雅]

[譯解比對]
Lakshmanjoo解釋utpatti dvitaya sthāne為"這兩個起點", Paul Reps的英譯僅指出進來的氣與出去的氣之間. 奧修的解說補充了出去的氣與進來的氣之間, 不過從他援引佛陀的話語以及自己的闡釋可看出此技巧, 既然列於全篇112個同時是其中呼吸技巧的首位, 以前者即入息和出息在自身內部的轉換之處作為覺知重心是適當的.
奧修的解說則既提空隙的觀照也談呼吸的停止, 這已超前到Verse25至27也就是之後三個技巧的內容. 按照Jaideva Singh引Śivopādhyāya對Bharaṇāt所作的註釋, 應覺察的是在兩個轉換點呼吸暫歇之中, 依然留存並顯露出的神性脈動(spanda)與亮光. 隨後他提及此技巧的另一種詮釋, 即Lakshmanjoo認為的練習方法, 那就是在出去的氣—轉換點以及起來的氣—轉換點此過程中, 分別頌念sa—visarga, ha—’ṁ’-kara. Jaideva Singh歸納成公式’Haṃsaḥ’. Silburn亦提到有別處經句指出此公式.
兩個氣息於身內和身外的轉換點, 前者在Lakshmanjoo, Jaideva Singh, Silburn三人皆是指心(hṛdaya或hṛt), 後者則是從鼻尖算起12個指寬之處(dvādaśānta). Silburn另有談到, 當修行入微時dvādaśānta會移至頂輪.
經文裡有出現prāṇaḥ和jīvaḥ, 後者又稱apāna. 然而不同於普遍認知的吠陀與瑜伽觀念, 在這篇Vijñānabhairava裡prāṇaḥ是指出息, apāna是指入息. 另外, 一般會以prana來描述氣或生命能量, 奧修也是如此, 而Jaideva Singh的注釋則認為是apana即氣息的返回才能提供生命—-jiva. Lorin Roche的看法為prana是生命的氣息, jiva是有別於宇宙靈魂, 由生命氣息濃縮於自身而成的個體靈魂.
Visargātmā在Jaideva Singh的譯解裡直指無上的devī或最高的Śakti, Lakshmanjoo意譯為至上能量, Silburn則依據對它可能的解讀來判別此技巧所屬的路徑層次.

[各家原文與譯解]
Lakshmanjoo
श्रीभैरव उवाच
ऊर्ध्वे प्राणो ह्यधो अधो जीवो
विसर्गात्मा परोच्चरेत् ।
उत्पत्तिद्वितयस्थाने,
भरणाद्भरिता स्थितिः ।।२४।।
śrī bhairava uvāca
ūrdhve prāṇo hyadho jīvo
visargātmā paroccaret /
utpattidvitayasthāne
bharaṇādbharitā sthitiḥ // 24 //

Ūrdhve means “from upwards".
The movement from upwards (ie., from the heart to dvādaśānta) is prāṇaḥ (prāṇaḥ means, the outgoing breath). Adhaḥ, from dvādaśānta to hṛdaya (the heart) is jīvaḥ (jīvaḥ means, the in-going breath).
The outgoing breath is represented by ‘sa’ and the ingoing breath is represented by ‘ha’. So ‘sa’ and ‘ha’, visargātmā parā uccaret utpatti dvitaya sthāne; utpatti dvitaya sthāne, [these are] two starting points. From the heart, there is one starting point, and from bāhya dvādaśānta, there is another starting point (that is utpatti dvitaya, two starting points). There, visargātmā parā uccaret, this supreme energy, which is full of visarga, appears. And by this process, bharaṇāt bharitā sthitiḥ, bharitā sthiti, bhairavasya sthitiḥ syāt, one becomes one with Bhairava, bharaṇāt, because of its fullness.
This upāya, this means, is connected with āṇavopāya. It can’t be śāktopāya or śāmbhavopāya. It is āṇavopāya because it is functioning in the field of objective consciousness.
Ūrdhve, you have to take the breath [out] from the heart to dvādaśānta, and take it in from dvādaśānta to the heart again, and recite prāṇa and jīva. “Recite prāṇa" means, recite ‘sa’, the letter ‘sa’, and “recite jīva” [means, recite] the letter ‘ha’. And, in these utpatti dvitaya, in these two starting points, you have to recite visarga and ‘ṁ’-kara. The visarga of ‘sa’ will be recited in the outward dvādaśānta, and the ‘ṁ’-kara of ‘ha’ will be recited in the heart. When you take your breath inside, [the recitation of “ha"] will end in ‘ṁ’. When you take it out, [the recitation of ‘sa’ will end in visarga – ‘saḥ’. And, in these two starting points, if you concentrate, you will become one with Bhairava because of its fullness.
This is āṇavopāya.

奧祕之書:奧修解說摘譯 (持續增訂)

*譯自奧修書"The Book of Secrets"   *各經文編號同於經文譯解裡的各篇VBT

觀照兩個氣息間的空隙
1.燦爛之人啊,這樣的體驗會在兩個氣息之間露出曙光。當氣進來(往下)後,正要轉上(往外)之前——至善。

這就是技巧:
燦爛之人啊,這樣的體驗會在兩個氣息之間露出曙光。
在氣進來後──也就是,往下──並且正要轉出去前──也就是,往上走──至善。覺知這兩點之間,以及正在發生的。當你的氣進來了,觀察它。會有一個片刻,或者說千分之一個片刻,呼吸不見了──就在它轉向上,在它轉向外面之前。這一次氣進來了;然後到了某個點上呼吸會停止。接著呼吸往外走。當氣出去了,那時再次會有一個片刻,或者說一個片刻的一小部份,呼吸停止了。然後氣再進來。」
在氣轉進來或轉出去之前,會有個片刻你並沒有在呼吸。在那片刻中某種發生是可能的,因為當你不在呼吸時你就不在這個世界。瞭解這點:當你不在呼吸時你就是死了;你仍然在,卻是死的。然而這個片刻持續的時間如此短暫,因此你從來不曾注意過它。
對譚崔(Tantra)而言,每一個出去的氣就是一次死亡,而每一個新進來的氣就是一次重生;氣進來是重生;氣出去是死亡。出去的氣等同死亡;進來的氣等同生命。所以在每一次呼吸裡你都是死了然後又重生。這兩者之間的空隙僅持續非常短的時間,不過敏銳的,誠摯的觀察與關注會讓你能夠感覺到這個空隙。如果你可以感覺到這空隙,溼婆說,至善。那時所有其他一切都不需要了。你已得到神的賜福,你已經領悟;事情已經發生了。
你並不是要去訓練呼吸。讓它就是原本的樣子。為什麼是一個這麼簡單的技巧呢?它看起來真是容易。這麼簡單的一個技巧就能知道真理?知道真理意味著知道那既沒有出生也沒有死去,知道那永恆的,始終存在的元素。你可以知道氣在出去,你可以知道氣在進來,但你從來不知道在這兩者之間的那個空隙。
嘗試它。突然間你會掌握到要點──於是你就得到它了;它已經在那裡。不需要再加任何東西到你或你的結構上面,它早就在那裡了。所有事情都已經在那裡,除了某種覺知。所以該怎麼做呢?首先,開始覺知到氣在進來。觀照它。忘掉所有一切,只要觀照氣在進來──正是那個通道。
當氣碰觸到你的鼻孔,感覺它就在那裡。然後讓氣移動進來。全然地覺知地隨著氣息移動。當你在往下,往下,隨著呼吸往下走時,不要錯過那個氣息。不要走到前面也不要落在後面,就是與它一起前進。記住這點:不要走過頭,也不要像影子般跟在後面;要與它是同步的。
呼吸與意識應該合而為一。氣走進來──你也走了進來。只有在這時才有可能明白那在兩個氣息之間的事情。這不會是容易的。隨著氣息移動進來,然後隨著氣息移動出去:進來–出去,進來–出去。
佛陀特別嘗試過這個方法,因此這方法變成了佛教的方法。在佛教的詞彙裡它被稱為安那般那觀瑜珈。而佛陀的成道就是基於這個技巧──只有這個。
世上所有的宗教,世上所有的先知,都是透過這個或那個技巧而達成的,而所有那些技巧都會在這112個技巧裡面。這第一個技巧是佛教的技巧。它已被世人認為是佛教的技巧,因為佛陀正是透過這個技巧而成道的。
佛陀說:「覺知你的呼吸,當它正在進來,它正在出去——進來,出去。」他從未提過那個空隙,因為並不需要。佛陀考量過後覺得如果你開始顧慮起這個空隙,兩個氣息間的這個空隙,那樣的顧慮可能會干擾到你的覺知。所以他只是說:「要覺知。當氣在進來時與它一同移動,當氣在出去時與它一同移動。該做的就只是這些:進來,出去,與呼吸在一起。」他從來沒有談過任何關於這技巧後半段的事情。
原因在於佛陀是對很平常的人們講話,所以即便只是提到都可能讓人產生想要到達這間隙的欲望。那想到達間隙的欲望將會變成覺知的障礙,因為如果你很想到達間隙,你就會跑過頭。氣將進來了,然而你會超過它而跑到前面去,因為你感興趣的那個空隙是在之後才出現的。由於佛陀從來沒有提過這部分,所以佛陀的技巧只有一半。
然而另外那一半會自動地隨之而來。如果你不斷練習呼吸的意識,呼吸的覺知,突然,有一天,就在不知不覺中,你將來到那個間隙。因為當你的覺知變得敏銳,深入,具有強度,當你的覺知開始能框住——整個世界都被放到框框外頭;只有你在進來或出去的呼吸成為你全部的世界,你意識的全部舞台——突然間你一定會感受到那個空隙,而在其中呼吸並不存在。
當你分分秒秒都在隨著呼吸移動,那麼當呼吸不見了,你怎麼可能還會不知道呢?你會突然覺知到呼吸不存在了,於是將會出現那樣的片刻,你感覺呼吸既不是在出去也不是在進來。呼吸完全停止了。就在那停止之中,至善
就這一個技巧對幾百萬人來說已經足夠了。許多世紀以來整個亞洲都在嘗試並活在這個技巧上面。西藏,中國,日本,緬甸,泰國,錫蘭——除了印度以外整個亞洲都在做這技巧。僅僅一個技巧就讓成千上萬的人透過它而成道。而這只是第一個技巧。
但不幸地,因為這技巧開始與佛陀的名字產生關聯,所以印度教徒們一直試著避開它。因為它變得越來被認為是佛教徒的技巧,於是印度教徒完全將它遺忘了。不僅如此,還有另個原因使他們會想迴避它。因為這個技巧是濕婆所提到的第一個技巧,許多佛教徒就宣稱這本書,維格亞那‧拜伊拉瓦‧怛特羅(VIGYANA BHAIRAVA TANTRA),是佛教的經典,而不是印度教的經典。
它既不是印度教的也不是佛教的——技巧就是技巧。佛陀用過它,但它是原本就有因此可被使用。因為這個技巧佛陀成為一個佛,一位成道者。這技巧早在佛陀之前;這技巧本來就在那了。試試看。它是最簡單的技巧之一——簡單是相較於其他的技巧;我不是說它對你而言是簡單的。其他技巧會更加困難。那就是為什麼它是第一個提到的技巧。

將你的專注力聚焦於第三眼
5.專注在兩眉之間,讓心落在思緒之前,讓形體直到頭頂充滿呼吸的精髓,從那裡如光一般地灑落。

閉起你的眼睛,然後聚焦你的雙眼,就在兩眉中央。以閉著的雙眼,焦點就落在中間處,好像你仍然是藉由你的兩隻眼睛在看。給出全部的專注在那上面。
如果這樣的專注是存在的,你將首次體驗到一種奇特的現象。生平第一次你將看見思緒是在你面前快速經過;你將變成目擊者。就像是電影螢幕:思緒快速地移動,而你是目睹這一切之人。一旦你的專注力聚焦在第三眼中心了,你會立刻成為能夠覺察內心思緒之人。
藉由聚焦在第三眼,忽然地你就能觀察到呼吸最精髓的部分——不是呼吸,是呼吸的最精髓,普拉那(prana)。而如果你能觀察到呼吸的精髓,普拉那,你就是在那跳躍,那突破將會發生之處了。
當你開始感覺到呼吸的精髓,普拉那,只要想像你的頭部注滿了它——只是觀想著······現在想像這精髓正充滿你整個頭部,尤其是頭頂,薩哈斯拉(SAHASRAR)——最高的靈性中心。而且只要你一想像,它就會被充滿。從那裡——從頭部頂端——如光一般地灑落。這普拉那精髓正從你的頭頂灑落成光。它將要開始灑落······
當你已聚焦在第三眼時,只要觀想普拉那的精髓正從頭頂灑落,那就像你坐在一棵樹下然後花朵灑落,或者你就是在天空下,然後突然間一片雲朵開始灑落雨滴,或者你只是在清晨時分靜靜坐著,然後太陽升起,開始灑落陽光——這一陣光雨從你的頭頂落了下來。如此之灑落會再次創造出你,給予你一個新生。你重新誕生了。

在你的日常活動中專注於那空隙
6.處在世間活動時,保持專注於兩個呼吸之間,如此練習,不需幾日就重獲新生。

處在世間活動時,保持專注於兩個呼吸之間·····忘掉呼吸,專注在它們之間的地方。一個氣息進來了:在它轉回去前,在它呼出去前,會有個空隙,有個間隔。一個氣息出去了;在它再次被吸進來前,也會出現空隙。處在世間活動時,保持專注於兩個呼吸之間,如此練習,不需幾日就重獲新生。然而這必須不間斷地做。這第六個技巧必須持續不斷地進行。那就是為什麼會提到這點:處在世間活動時······無論你在做的事情是什麼,將你的注意力放在兩個氣息間的空隙。然而這必須在日常活動中練習。
我們討論過很類似的技巧。此處只有這樣的差別,那就是這個技巧必須是在你平常的行為活動中去練習。不要在孤立抽離的情況下練習它。這技巧是要在你做著別的事情時去進行的。你在吃東西——繼續吃著同時專注於那空隙。你在走路——繼續走著同時專注於那空隙。你要睡覺了——躺下來,讓睡意到來,然而你仍一直專注在那空隙上。為什麼要在活動中呢?因為活動會讓人分心,活動會一再地帶走你的注意力。不要被分散掉,固定在那空隙。而且不要停止活動,讓你原本在做的事情繼續下去。你將擁有兩個層面的存在——作為與本體。
我們擁有兩個層面的存在:作為的世界與本體的世界;周圍與中心處。在表面,在周圍繼續運轉,然而同時一直專注地運作那個中心。這樣會發生什麼事情呢?你的活動作為將變成一種演出,好像你是在扮演某個角色一樣。
你在扮演一個角色——舉例來說,在某齣戲裡。你扮成了羅摩,或者你扮成了基督。你一直在扮演基督或是扮演羅摩,然而你仍舊是你自己。在中心處,你知道自己是誰;在表層你一直扮演著羅摩,基督,或是任何人。然而你知道自己並不是羅摩——你只是在演戲。你知道你是誰。你的專注力在你裡面歸於中心;你的行為活動則在外圍持續進行。
如果這個方法被實行了,你的整個一生將會變成一齣漫長的戲劇。你會成為一位扮演著各種
角色的演員,不過可以經常不斷地在那空隙裡歸於中心。如果你忘掉了那個空隙,這時你就不是在扮演角色,你會變成那個角色。這麼一來那就不是戲劇了;你已將它錯認為自己的生命。那就是我們所做之事。每個人都認為他在過著自己的人生。那不是真的人生,那只是一個角色——一個由社會,環境,文化,傳統,國家,種種情況分派給你的角色。你被給予這個角色,而你一直在扮演它;你已變得認同於它。為了打破那認同所以有這個技巧。
克里希那有許多名字。克里希那是最偉大的演員之一。他持續不斷地在他自己裡面歸於中心,然後扮演——扮演著許多角色,許許多多的演出,但絕對是不嚴肅的。嚴肅來自於認同。如果在演戲時你真的變成了羅摩,那麼一定會面臨種種問題。那些問題出於你嚴肅的態度。當悉多被劫走時,你可能會胸口一陣劇痛,整個演出都必須停下來。如果你真的變成了羅摩,必然會心痛難忍·····連心跳都停止了。
然而你只是一位演員。悉多被劫走了,但其實並沒有東西被劫走。你會回到自己的家,然後睡得很安穩。即便在夢裡你都不會覺得悉多被劫走。當悉多是真的被劫走時,羅摩本人啜泣著,哭喊著,並且質問周圍的樹木:「我的悉多去哪裡了?是誰把她帶走了?」然而這點必須加以瞭解。如果羅摩真的在啜泣並質問樹木,他就已經變得認同。他不再是羅摩;他不再是那位神聖之人。
這是必須記住的一點,那就是對羅摩來說他真實的人生也只是一個角色而已。你見過其他演員在扮演羅摩,然而羅摩自己也是在扮演一個角色——當然,是在更大的舞台上。
對此印度有個很美的故事。我想這個故事是獨一無二的;這世上沒有其他角落會存在這樣的描述。據說跋彌是在羅摩出生之前就寫出《羅摩衍那》,於是羅摩必須照著做。所以事實上,羅摩原先的舉止也只是一齣戲劇。這故事早在羅摩出生之前就寫好了,羅摩只能照辦。某種程度來說一切都已注定。悉多必須被劫走,戰爭也必須被掀起。
如果你能瞭解這點,那麼你就能瞭解BHAGYA—命運,命定的理論。它有著非常深的含義。那個意義是,如果你接受一切對你來說都是注定好的,你的人生就會變成一齣戲。如果你在一齣戲裡扮演羅摩這個角色,你不能更改它,每一件事都已固定了,連你的對白也是如此。如果你對悉多說了什麼,那只是將一些確定好的話重新說出來而已。如果生命被視為是固定不變的,你就無法改變它。
舉例來說,你將會在一個特定的日期死去—-已經預定好了。在你將死之時你會啜泣,但這本就預定如此。這些和那些人會圍在你身邊—那也是預定好的。如果每一件事都是預定好的,那麼每一件事都是齣戲。如果一切都已注定,那意味著你只是去實行它。你並沒有被期待去活出它,你只是被要求去執行它。
這個技巧,第六個技巧,正是讓你自身成為一齣心理劇—-就只是一場演出。你的焦點集中在兩個氣息間的空隙,而在表面,生活照常進行。如果你關注的是中心處,那麼你的注意力就不會真的去到表面上—-那裡只不過是“次注意力”;它只是發生在靠近你注意力的某處。你會感覺到它,你會知道它,但它並不很重要。就好像它不是發生在你身上。我再重複這點:如果你練習這第六個技巧,你的整個一生將會彷彿不是發生在你身上,好像它是發生在別人身上一樣。」

Vigyan Bhairav Tantra

DEVI ASKS:
OH SHIVA, WHAT IS YOUR REALITY?
WHAT IS THIS WONDER-FILLED UNIVERSE?
WHAT CONSTITUTES SEED?
WHO CENTERS THE UNIVERSAL WHEEL?
WHAT IS THIS LIFE BEYOND FORM PERVADING FORMS?
HOW MAY WE ENTER IT FULLY, ABOVE SPACE AND TIME, NAMES AND DESCRIPTIONS?
LET MY DOUBTS BE CLEARED!
女神問起:
喔,濕婆!什麼是你的實體?
什麼是這充滿驚奇的宇宙?
是什麼構成了種子?
是誰立下宇宙的輪心?
什麼是這超出形式又遍布形式的生命?
我們該如何完全進入它,超乎時間與空間,名相與表述?
讓我的疑惑一掃而空吧!

SHIVA REPLIES:
1. RADIANT ONE, THIS EXPERIENCE MAY DAWN BETWEEN TWO BREATHS. AFTER BREATH COMES IN (DOWN) AND JUST BEFORE TURNING UP (OUT) – THE BENEFICENCE.
濕婆回答:
1. 燦爛之人啊,這樣的體驗會在兩個氣息之間露出曙光。當氣進來(往下)後,正要轉上(往外)之前──慈恩。
ऊर्ध्वे प्राणो ह्यधो अधो जीवो विसर्गात्मा परोच्चरेत्
उत्पत्तिद्वितयस्थाने, भरणाद्भरिता स्थितिः
ūrdhve prāṇo hyadho jīvo visargātmā paroccaret
utpattidvitayasthāne bharaṇādbharitā sthitiḥ

2. AS BREATH TURNS FROM DOWN TO UP, AND AGAIN AS BREATH CURVES FROM UP TO DOWN – THROUGH BOTH THESE TURNS, REALIZE.
2. 當氣從下轉向上,以及當氣再從上彎向下時──透過這兩個轉折,體悟。
मरुतोऽन्तर्बहिर्वापि वियद्युग्मानुवर्तनात्
भैरव्या भैरवस्येत्थं भैरवि व्यज्यते वपुः
maruto’ntarbahirvāpi viyadyugmānuvartanāt
bhairavyā bhairavasyetthaṁ bhairavi vyajyate vapuḥ

3. OR, WHENEVER IN-BREATH AND OUT-BREATH FUSE, AT THIS INSTANT TOUCH THE ENERGY-LESS, ENERGY-FILLED CENTER.
3.或者,每當進來的氣與出去的氣消融之際,在這瞬間碰觸到那無有能量,又滿載能量的中心。
न वजेन्न विशेच्छक्ति-र्मरुद्रूपा विकासिते
निर्विकल्पकतया मध्ये तया भैरवरूपता
na vajenna viśecchaktir marudrūpā vikāsite
nirvikalpakatayā madhye tayā bhairavarūpatā

4. OR, WHEN BREATH IS ALL OUT (UP) AND STOPPED OF ITSELF, OR ALL IN (DOWN) AND STOPPED – IN SUCH UNIVERSAL PAUSE, ONE’S SMALL SELF VANISHES. THIS IS DIFFICULT ONLY FOR THE IMPURE.
4.或者,當氣完全出去(上)並自行停止,或完全進來(下)且停止時──在如此宇宙性的停頓裡,人渺小的自己消失無蹤。這只對不純淨之人才是困難的。
कुम्भिता रेचिता वापि पूरिता या यदा भवेत्
तदन्ते शान्तनामासौ शक्त्या शान्तः प्रकाशते
kumbhitā recitā vāpi pūritā vā yadā bhavet
tadante śāntanāmāsau śaktya śāntaḥ prakāśate

5. ATTENTION BETWEEN EYEBROWS, LET MIND BE BEFORE THOUGHT. LET FORM FILL WITH BREATH ESSENCE TO THE TOP OF THE HEAD AND THERE SHOWER AS LIGHT.
5.專注在兩眉之間,讓心落在思緒之前,讓形體直到頭頂充滿呼吸的精髓,從那裡如光一般灑落。
तयापूर्याशु मूर्धान्तं भङ्क्त्वा भ्रूक्षेपसेतुना
निर्विकल्पं मनः कृत्वा सर्वोर्ध्वे सर्वगोद्गमः

6. WHEN IN WORLDLY ACTIVITY, KEEP ATTENTION BETWEEN TWO BREATHS, AND SO PRACTICING, IN A FEW DAYS BE BORN ANEW.
6.處在世間活動時,始終凝神於兩氣息之間,如此練習,不需幾日即獲新生。

pratikṣaṇaṃ kṣīṇavṛttervailakṣaṇyam dinairbhavet

7. WITH INTANGIBLE BREATH IN CENTER OF FOREHEAD, AS THIS REACHES HEART AT THE MOMENT OF SLEEP, HAVE DIRECTION OVER DREAMS AND OVER DEATH ITSELF.
7.隨著前額中心裡那無形的呼吸,在沉睡的時刻抵達於心,對夢和死亡本身都已掌握。
पिनां च दुर्बलां शक्तिं ध्यात्वा द्वादशगोचरे
प्रविश्य हृदये ध्यायन्-सुप्तः स्वातन्त्र्यमाप्नुयात्
pināṁ ca durbalāṁ śaktiṁ dhyātvā dvādaśagocare

8. WITH UTMOST DEVOTION, CENTER ON THE TWO JUNCTIONS OF BREATH AND KNOW THE KNOWER.
8.懷著最大之奉獻,以呼吸的兩個轉接點為中心,知道了知者。

9. LIE DOWN AS DEAD. ENRAGED IN WRATH, STAY SO. OR STARE WITHOUT MOVING AN EYELASH. OR SUCK SOMETHING AND BECOME THE SUCKING.
9.如死去般躺下來。憤怒激起時,待在如此。或眼睛眨也不眨地直瞪著。或吸吮某樣東西並變成那個吸吮。

āsane śayane sthitvā nirādhāraṁ vibhāvayan
svadehaṁ, manaso kṣīṇe kṣaṇāt kṣīṇāśayo bhavet

13. OR, IMAGINE THE FIVE-COLORED CIRCLES OF THE PEACOCK TAIL TO BE YOUR FIVE SENSES IN ILLIMITABLE SPACE. NOW LET THEIR BEAUTY MELT WITHIN. SIMILARLY, AT ANY POINT IN SPACE OR ON A WALL – UNTIL THE POINT DISSOLVES. THEN YOUR WISH FOR ANOTHER COMES TRUE.
13.或者,想像在那無垠空間裏孔雀尾部的五彩圓圈成為你的五個感官。現在讓它們的美融化在你裡面。同樣地,就在空間或牆上的任何一點──直到那一點溶解。這時你對另個世界的渴望將會實現。

VBT ✻ 奧祕之書

永恆的信息  

人類對靈性的追尋, 能回溯至多麼久遠的時光?
我們在Vijñānabhairava裡看到的經文, 據信源自至少4,5千年前的印度. 考古工作證實那個時期的確有一印度河流域文明, 甚至發現刻著盤腿坐姿人像的印章.
大約是在具有歐亞交界種族血統的雅利安人進入印度之際, 這神秘的文明也煙滅於歷史的洪流中, 隨之登場的就是較為後世所知的吠陀, 婆羅門, 以及恆河的印度了.
然而, 從耆那教始祖Adinatha到佛陀的存在, 已經表明印度大陸的靈性傳統自有其源頭. 最古老的吠陀經書為Rig Veda, 書中對Adinatha表達了崇高的敬意, 依常理判斷Adinatha的年代必然較Rig Veda久遠得多. 佛陀所屬的釋迦族雖為雅利安貴族階層, 生活在恆河文化圈內, 可是當他踏上探索生死之旅時, 首先是向附近森林裡的仙人學習禪定, 而吠陀經典裡並無禪定法門方面的記載. 所以那些修行方法是傳自何人何地呢?
佛陀所代表的Shrama, 沙門僧團開始興起, 而另個修行系統也以較具組織的面貌逐漸成形, 那就是Tantra——先於佛教密宗的古印度密教, 在台灣也譯作譚崔.
Tantra是西方學者所取的概稱, 此體系在印度本土是由許多不同名稱的教派團體所組成. 例如在西元最初幾個世紀有Kapalika, 一般認為是他們將Vijñānabhairava裡那些承自遠古的修行祕語寫成經書篇章, 再經歲月的流傳, 保存於今日的Kashmir Shaivism, 喀什米爾濕婆教派.
美國俳句詩人Paul Reps於1930年代去到喀什米爾, 與濕婆教派上師Lakshmanjoo合力將經文裡的112個靜心法門譯成英文, 自1955年開始印行. 隨著Paul Reps本流傳於世, 加上Lakshmanjoo其他學生的成果發表以及他本人的解說記錄, 現今Vijñānabhairava—或稱Vigyan Bhairav Tantra—已有十多種語言的翻譯和論著.
奧修於1972年至1973年在孟買對Vigyan Bhairav Tantra即VBT的英譯經句作出解說, 包含每一個靜心技巧的重點說明, 並回覆聽眾的諸多提問. 所有講解和問答隨後出版成"The Book of Secrets", 中譯為奧祕之書.


奧祕之書工作  

※VBT的梵文原句於1918年刊行在Kashmir Series of Texts and Studies, No. IX.
※最早見到的英譯為 Paul Reps版本, 據其所述綜合了Vigyan Bhairava Tantra, Sochanda Tantra, Malini Vijaya Tantra三篇經典. 最初發表於1955年春季號的“Gentry”雜誌, 1957年與禪宗故事, 公案, 十牛圖等合為“Zen Flesh, Zen Bones”一書出版, 此篇譯文為書中第四部分, 題作‘Centering’. 志文出版社於1969年出版“Zen Flesh, Zen Bones”中譯本“禪的故事”.
※Lakshmanjoo於1973至1984年間的錄音於2007年初次成書. Jaideva Singh的 “Vijñānabhairava or Divine Consciousness"初版為1979年, 內容有原文, 作者的英譯, 以及他引據歷來各家所作的註釋. Lilian Silburn的法譯和評註“Le Vijñāna Bhairava”初版則在更早的1961年. Satyasangananda Saraswati的“Sri Vijnana Bhairava Tantra: The Ascent”有她以Bihar Yoga出家僧侶觀點所作的詳細譯解, 2003年初版. Daniel Odier在其網站載有他的法譯之英譯, 並有另篇相關譯作“Spandakarika”. Lorin Roche的譯解“The Radiance Sutras”初版為2014年.
※奧修在1972年10月1日至1973年11月8日, 分作5段共80場次, 依Paul Reps的英譯本加以闡釋並回覆提問. 此一系列演說名為“Vigyan Bhairav Tantra”. 隨後於1974到76年間出版為5卷的“The Book of the Secrets”, 1991年改版為2卷的“Vigyan Bhairav Tantra”, 1998年再度改版為合1冊“The Book of Secrets”.
※奧修出版社於1990年10月出版“The Book of the Secrets”第3卷之中譯本“奧祕之書”, 並分成上下冊. 2005年5月至2008年2月將原書5卷各分上下, 出版為共10冊的中譯本“譚崔經典”.
※桑雅最早曾在2003年的劇場演出裡運用了部份奧祕之書經句. 2007年寫成“The Book of Secrets”裡全部經句的中譯, 並以看板型式陳列在該年5月桑雅劇場的年度展演中, 題為“永恆存在的靜心信息”. 目前除了依據奧修的詮釋, 也會參考Lakshmanjoo與Jaideva Singh等人的註解, 持續進行經文中譯和原文比對解析, 並將奧祕之書裡奧修對於經文技巧的解說加以擇要重譯. 這些研究成果亦同時反映在靜心內蘊和內面凝視之舞的實踐當中.
