  1. 10/05: Another book: Read here! Details

    pic 36

    1. "Tantric Sex - Volume 1 (out of two volumes)" has been published on Amazon!
    2. Tired of the constant association of Tantra with sex alone, tired of so many distortions in the original teachings, etc., I decided to help alleviate the situation a little at least. To do so, I decided, first, to translate the entire 29th chapter of venerable Tantrāloka into English, in which Abhinavagupta, its author, speaks about Tantric sex as a part of the complex Kula ceremony. Next, I started with the hard task of translating from Sanskrit the complete commentary by Jayaratha on this very chapter. Finally, I added my own explanations when necessary. Many times, I did not need to explain anything at all as Abhinavagupta and Jayaratha were clear enough, but at other times I needed to add explanations of different extensions according to the complexity of the topic under discussion.
    3. Every volume of this collection of two consists of around 500 pages. In the second volume there is also a complete glossary of all the Sanskrit words requiring an extra definition.
    4. Although I finished already the second volume, its edition is still in the works. It will be published as soon as possible.
    5. May you have so much delight reading this book as I had writing it!
    6. Enjoy!

    1. "Yajñagītapustakam: Chanting Book for the Ritual of Worship" has been published on Amazon!
    2. I am very happy to present for the first time a chanting book for the 'Yajña' or 'Ritual of Worship'. This small book contains all the mantra-s to successfully perform a 'standard' ritual of worship in the Tantric way. Additionally, I have included information about what to do in every portion of the ceremony. This kind of Worship is exceedingly permeated by the very core of Tantricism, including philosophical viewpoints as well as inner experiences.
    3. This standard Tantric ritual of worship is using the Śrīyantra. Why? Because this yantra or diagram (lit. machine) admits any deity. You can use it for worshiping Parabhairava or any other deity of your choice. That is why it is a 'standard' Tantric ritual of worship.
    4. What makes Tantric ritual unique is that during the act of worship, the practitioners go through the spiritual path, rendered outside as the ritual itself and experienced inside as the Reality behind.
    5. To fully learn how to perform the ritual, check this video where we are carrying out the full ceremony.
    6. Enjoy!
  3. 06/29: Tantrāloka: Chapters 6 and 7 Details

    pic 34

    1. Now, a great announcement: Chapter 6 (part 1 and part 2) and chapter 7 in Tantrāloka are completely translated and published. This amounts to 323 new stanzas totally translated. Near 30% of the whole book is already finished then!
    2. The chapter 7 was extremely difficult to translate. Till now it is the most difficult chapter I have translated. It contains only 71 stanzas but, due to its difficulty, I had to read practically vast portions of the commentary by Jayaratha in order to understand what Abhinavagupta meant to say by all that.
    3. I am translating the chapter 8 beforehand as well. I reached the stanza 120 out of 452 by now!
    4. For you to have an idea of the size of my translations, take into account that Bhagavadgītā (using the same meter as Abhinavagupta here, in Tantrāloka... though Abhinavagupta uses longer meters now and then) contains 700 stanzas. So, with chapters 6 and 7 I translated almost half of Bhagavadgītā. And the total of stanzas I have already translated and published in Tantrāloka amounts to 1728... that is, it is almost 2.5 Bhagavadgītā-s... and I translated them into Spanish too! I mentioned all that for some of you to be patient while I am translating. Yes, it would be fantastic to finish Tantrāloka in one week, but this treatise is extremely long and complex. Without reading the commentary to some extent it is impossible to translate.
    5. Enjoy!
  4. 06/12: GOOD NEWS!: Read here! Details

    pic 31

    1. Good news!!!!: Trikamukhyamatāni - 'Main Tenets of Trika Shaivism' is now available in Kindle version at Amazon (the paper version is hopefully coming in a couple of days). As I explained in advance on the previous news, Trikamukhyamatāni is a ~350 pages book where I explain, in simple terms, the basic teachings of Trika Shaivism (a.k.a. Non-dualistic Kashmir Shaivism). I wrote the book totally in Sanskrit verse by using non-strict Ārya and Āryāgīti meters. It contains 27 stanzas by which I explain the '101' about Trika Shaivism. Of course, there is also the transliteration and translation of every stanza, plus long explanations in prose of their meaning.
    2. Additionally: I finished translating into English the chapter 6 in Tantrāloka. Now I am 'slowly' translating it into Spanish (a super boring task). I mitigate the massive boredom by already translating the chapter 7 (I translated the first 25 stanzas by now).
    3. Enjoy!

    ANNIVERSARY: 21 YEARS!

    1. We, all the collaborators, disciples and I, are very happy with this new anniversary of our free and ad-free website! We are celebrating!
    2. This year I did not publish a lot 'yet' because I was working on more books: (1) A ~350 pages book where I explain, in simple terms, the basic teachings of Trika Shaivism (a.k.a. Non-dualistic Kashmir Shaivism) is coming soon this month on Amazon; (2) A ~700 or 800 first volume (editing in process) where I explain Śāmbhavopāya (the highest type of practices) in Parabhairavayoga (a Non-dualistic Kashmir Shaivism-based Yoga I founded in 2016); (3) A ~1000 pages (divided into two volumes of ~500 each) book that is finished and in process of revision now, and that it will be published this year... it will be a surprise for all of you! I wrote the first two books in full Sanskrit from beginning to end. There are transliteration and translation, obviously. There is a fourth little book (less than 100 pages) about one of the rituals we perform in Parabhairavayoga, containing a brief explanation of the ritual itself and, of course, all the mantra-s and diagrams for you to be able to chant like us.
    3. As you can see, I never rest. If I am not working on the website, then I am writing books (~2200 pages of pure knowledge and mantra-s in all those four books). But for the rest of the year, I plan not to write more books (I will continue next year if this body is still alive!). I want to apply my efforts on the website itself. And I am in full process of translating the 6th chapter in Tantrāloka (I already translated into English 107 stanzas out of the 252 the chapter contains). I am devoting many hours to this extremely difficult chapter where Abhinavagupta is also speaking about astrology and mythology. So, I have to study astrology and mythology even more in order to be able to follow his teachings. With Abhinavagupta, due to his magnitude, everything is always uphill. This Master is not for the faint of heart, who just give up at the least obstacle. With Abhinavagupta, practically every stanza is an obstacle, I am not joking. OK, wish me luck!
    4. And now some statistical data. Remember that this website deals with topics that are not very popular in this childish world: (1) ~3000 visits daily. (2) The main countries visiting 'Sanskrit & Trika Shaivism' in 2020 are, in this order: United States, India, Russian Federation, Brazil, Spain, Hungary, Finland, China, Canada, Mexico, Great Britain and Argentina.
    5. Happy anniversary! Enjoy!

The book also contains several charts and a vast glossary for readers to enjoy.
    2. Both the hardcover version and the Kindle version are now available in Europe too. Check this out: Kindle version in United Kingdom, hardcover version in Germany and United Kingdom.
    3. Enjoy!
  7. 05/17: More translations: Read here! Details

    pic 31

    1. By my command, my collaborator and wife, Natalia Ambikā, started to translate the sublime scripture called Spandanirṇaya (one of the most important scriptures in Trika Shaivism). Now she has finished to translate the first three documents into Russian language: Spandanirṇaya (Introduction and index), Spandanirṇaya I.1 and I.2, and Spandanirṇaya I.3 to I.5.
    2. It has been a very great effort on her part. Congratulations on that and keep it up with the rest of the scripture!
    3. Enjoy!

    2. This book is the culmination of decades of effort, study and spiritual service of Gurujī Gabriel Pradīpaka.
    3. Moreover, we are announcing that we have added, on our Parabhairava Gallery, all the pics related to the recent visit of Gurujī to Budapest!
    4. Enjoy!
  9. 03/13: Budapest: February-March Details

    pic 29

    1. Now we published a new playlist on our YouTube channel: Budapest, February 2020.
    2. In this new playlist we included all the videos for the two satsaṅga-s and the two-day seminar held by Gurujī in Budapest. The first satsaṅga dealt with: 'Who is meditating?'. The second satsaṅga dealt with: 'How to recognize the true Guru?'. The seminar dealt with selected aphorisms in 'Abhinavagupta's Paramārthasāra'. Paramārthasāra (lit. The essence of the Highest Reality) consists of 105 stanzas dealing with Trika philosophy in general. In this sense, it is like a practical handbook for spiritual aspirants desirous to attain Final Liberation. Gurujī not only explained those stanzas but also the respective commentaries by Yogarāja!
    3. Enjoy!
  10. 02/23: New translations: Read here! Details

    pic 28

    1. Our collaborator, Natalia Ambikā, after a great effort, translated these three pages into Russian language: 'How to decline numbers in Sanskrit', 'Tantrāloka: Chapter 1 - stanzas 151 to 300', 'Tantrāloka: Chapter 1 - stanzas 301 to 332'.
    2. Right now, she has started to translate 'Spandanirṇaya' as well.
    3. Congratulations and keep it up!
    4. Enjoy!
  11. 02/06: Tantrāloka: Chapter 29 (full) Details

    pic 27

    1. After millions of hours working, I completely finished the extremely abstruse... and maddening... 29th chapter in Tantrāloka (Part 1 and Part 2). In this chapter, the entire Kula's secret rite or procedure is taught by Abhinavagupta. One part of this rite consists in Tantric sex. That is why I translated this chapter before the predictable 6th chapter in Tantrāloka, in order to shed light on such a topic which has been excessively distorted by ignorant minds (specially in the West).
    2. Someone can find it difficult to understand this chapter. There is no surprise in this. That is why the Jayaratha's commentary exists. But obviously, to translate this commentary I will need more millions of hours. And this is not enough -except you are an accomplished scholar with a right understanding about these practices-, that is to say, I will have to explain the whole thing to you too. Oh well, the entire Tantrāloka is always too heavy, you know!
    3. Enjoy!

2019

  1. 12/29: New pics and videos: Read here! Details

    pic 25

    1. On our YouTube channel, I published all the videos associated with my last visit to the Parabhairavayoga Center in Budapest.
    2. Also, on our Parabhairavayoga Gallery, I published a collection of pictures about that visit. To get the right pictures, you have to surf there through the categories till you reach the pics of November 2019.
    3. I am exactly in the middle of the process of translating more Tantrāloka stuff for you! I will publish a long chapter soon! Stay sharp!
    4. Enjoy!
  2. 12/16: Books: New feature! Details

    pic 25

    1. Amazon released 'Author Central', a new feature which permits all the authors to have their own profiles and books in one place. Of course, I created mine there and included the two books I have already published some time ago. Now you can reach my profile at Amazon and follow my updates: Books (there is a book icon in the navigation bar above for fast access).
    2. I already finished my fourth book totally in Sanskrit!
    3. The third book and the fourth book will be published soon at Amazon.
    4. Moreover, I plan to publish 15 books in a period of two years. Therefore, be ready to receive plenty of updates next year.
    5. Right now I am translating another chapter of Tantrāloka for you here!
    6. Enjoy!
  3. 11/10: Translations news: Read here! Details

    pic 24

    1. Natalia Ambikā was working very hard 'again' on her translations into Russian: (1) Sanskrit numbers (Cardinals), (2) Sanskrit numbers (Ordinals), (3) Tantrāloka - Introduction and (4) Tantrāloka - Chapter 1 (stanzas 1-150). Enormous effort! Congratulations!
    2. I am in the last part of the process of writing my fourth book totally in Sanskrit. It will be a 500 page book, I guess. I hope to publish it at the end of this year or beginning of the next year!
    3. Enjoy!
  4. 09/24: More news: Read here! Details

    pic 23

    1. I published on our 'Parabhairavayoga Gallery' website all the pictures taken during my stay in Budapest in August!
    2. Natalia Ambikā was working very hard on her translations into Russian: (1) How to write in Sanskrit, (2) First strokes 1, (3) First strokes 2, (4) Tables, and (5) Ancient Sanskrit characters. In this way, the translation of the entire Writing section is completed. Congratulations!
    3. I am still writing my fourth book totally in Sanskrit. I finished the first half!
    4. Enjoy!
  5. 09/03: YouTube channel: Update Details

    pic 21

    1. Update for my YouTube channel after my activities in Budapest during two weeks: All the '8 main videos' covering my spiritual activities in Budapest during August are now published on YouTube. Near 900 minutes (15 hours) of footage full of Trika Shaivism knowledge and Tantric ritual!
    2. What is next? Soon, Natalia Ambikā, my wife -generally called 'Gurumā'-, will publish 'on Facebook' short (or sometimes not so short) videos taken with another camera. These videos will show the things from other viewpoints. For example, some of those videos will 'hopefully' show the fire in the ritual (which was not shown in the main video of the ritual as the camera was kept fixed on us, the chanters). Obviously, I will have to edit all those numerous videos first, which is very time-consuming, as usual. I am on the move then! I never rest!
    3. Enjoy!
  6. 08/11: New translations: Read here! Details

    1. On the one hand, our collaborator Natalia Ambikā translated into Russian three new documents: Learning Sanskrit - Sanskrit Quotes 1: Celebrated Sanskrit quotes - Part 1, Learning Sanskrit - First Steps (5): Sanskrit alphabet and the levels of Creation - Part 2 and Learning Sanskrit - First Steps - 1: Appendix of Learning Sanskrit - First Steps (4) and (5). Incredible work! Congratulations!!!
    2. On the other hand, our collaborators Paulo and Claudio finished the translation into Brazilian Portuguese of the stanzas 75 to 78 in Abhinavagupta's Paramārthasāra. Congratulations too!!!
    3. In the meantime, I continue to compose my fourth book, which is written totally in Sanskrit (obviously, I provide too the translation). I completed around one third of it!
    4. Enjoy!
  7. 07/11: Tantrāloka: Chapter 5 Details

    pic 20

    1. The fifth chapter in Tantrāloka, dealing with Āṇavopāya (the means pertaining to 'aṇu' or limited being), is published!
    2. So far I have translated 1114 out of 5847 stanzas (around 19% of the whole scripture).
    3. In this fifth chapter, Abhinavagupta explained: (i) Meditation by means of the intellect, (ii) utterance through the essence of breath, (iii) rising of Consciousness, (iv) entry into the Highest Principle and (v) the characteristic of the path, (vi) concentration in which the organs are used and (vii) the principle of word.
    4. I want now to explain some things: In my translation of the whole Tantrāloka, I include many portions coming directly from Jayaratha's commentary called Viveka. Why? In order to add vital information without which it is practically impossible to understand the Abhinavagupta's teachings. This forces me to read the commentary directly in Sanskrit. Till now, I have read more than 1100 pages out of 4000! I am not joking. And this explains why I delay some time in publishing my translations. But there is another reason for my delays: Books. So far I have written three books this year, and I am going now for the fourth one. They are not very little books really... you know how prolific I am in all I do, right? So, expect the first two books to be not very small indeed (both can count around 800 pages or more). And the fourth one I am about to write could become quite a Bible in size. Consequently, for the publishing of the Tantrāloka's sixth chapter there will be an understandable delay.
    5. Other updates: Dávid Durvāsās translated into Hungarian the entire chapter 3 in Tantrāloka. And Natalia Ambikā translated into Russian the following pages: Learning Sanskrit - First Steps (3), Learning Sanskrit - First Steps (4), Tattvic Chart - Categories of the manifestation according to Trika system and Tattva-s & Sanskrit - Relationship between Sanskrit letters and Trika tattva-s. Congratulations to both on a massive and perfect job!
    6. Enjoy!
  8. 06/01: ANNIVERSARY: 20 YEARS! Details

    ANNIVERSARY: 20 YEARS!

    1. In April of 1999, after having studied many things (Sanskrit, Trika Shaivism, Vedānta, Sāṅkhyayoga, etc.) for sixteen years, I started wondering what to do with all that knowledge. Despite I taught to people in my city at that time, it was not enough. I internally knew that I needed an expansion but I did not know how to do it. Anyway, I continued for some time in a state where I was constantly besieged by thoughts about an expansion. Finally, I decided to ask Parabhairava (the Self of everybody) for a solution to this serious dilemma. In my meditations I began to ask Him about what I had to do to generate an expansion of knowledge. Suddenly, one day, He replied. His inner Voice clearly told me: 'Build a website!'. In my tradition we know that when a message repeats by itself constantly, it comes from the Lord and not from ego. So, I keep asking Him every day about the same thing, and the answer was always the same thing: 'Build a website!'. After having followed this course of action for one month, at last I understood that that message was genuine and not a fantasy of my ego. There was another thing that made me understand that it was His message and not my ideas: I hardly knew what a website was!

      So, with the help of the co-founder Andrés Muni (who is not participating in my community right now), I founded the website. Nonetheless, at that time I did not even have a telephone at home (no jokes). Therefore, I had to install one to have Internet, because at the moment one had to have a modem connected to the telephone line to enjoy the Internet. Besides, it was very expensive and restricted by a certain number of hours per month. I remember that I applied for a plan giving me 50 hours every month. Consequently, I had hardly near 2 hours daily. After all that hassle I started to learn how to build a basic website. The first location for the website was some place in the Geocities neighborhood. At first, I did not have domain name and a private paid server, obviously. This would come later. My first program to design the website was a very basic and uncomfortable Adobe GoLive. It was a pain to work with that software indeed. I currently use Dreamweaver, of course. I worked off-line in the building of the pages, and in my almost 2 hours per day Internet limit I uploaded the new contents and surfed the Web for more knowledge about how to build a website even better. The first page I uploaded (the oldest one at the website) was 'Learning Sanskrit - First Steps (1)'. But this is the current name. Its first name was something like: 'Sanskrit in Argentina - 1'. An absolutely nationalist name indeed, I must confess!

      All the primitive website was in simple HTML (no CSS, let alone PHP). I was studying and polishing the website for five years till in 2004 I could present something more or less 'acceptable' to be called 'a website' (I abandoned a couple of years ago the domain name 'sanskrit-sanscrito.com.ar', as you surely know). Additionally, I added a satellite Blog. At first, there was no IAST (International Alphabet of Sanskrit Transliteration) available in Unicode fonts like now. I used a primitive ANSI font called 'Sanskrit 98' till 2003, when I moved to the 'Sanskrit 2003' font (an Unicode font). And this lack of support for IAST forced me to create my own transliteration system, the ASTHA (Alphabet of Sanskrit Transliteration for HTML, made in Argentina), haha! I was very Argentinian at that moment, it seems!

      The constant advance of technology forced me to learn new things and to polish the entire website. For example, I spent an insane number of hours converting the ASTHA to modern IAST in the whole website, I spent one month of my life only to convert HTML to XHTML Strict, etc. Along with those vigorous efforts to keep the website so updated as possible, I continued to publish long pages full of relevant content. Additionally, in 2005, being my work on the website so demanding, I decided not to earn my living anymore in order to dedicate all my time to the website. In 2009, the site expanded to another language: Brazilian Portuguese. The Brazilian collaborators started to arrive. I had to do a lot of work to include the new language certainly. At that time, the website was still a static one, which implied that all the changes had to be 'manually made'. In 2010, with my attainment of Liberation and Guruhood, the website started to be more specifically related to Trika Shaivism. Anyway, I did not change the site title and the domain name yet.

      In 2012, at last, a professional Hungarian programmer came to me and proposed to move the whole website to a dynamic format based on PHP and HTML 5. I accepted and he was working really hard for some months. We were in constant contact in order to keep the process moving in the right way. Millions of emails were written in the whole process, as you surely guess. On November 12, we could finally publish the new dynamic format of the website. It was a very drastic change for the better! And though I changed the design two times since then, the website never abandoned its solid dynamic nature. In 2014, a Hungarian collaborator proposed me to expand the website even more in order to include a section in Hungarian language. I accepted and the process of updating started. Again, all this consumed an insane number of hours! To keep a website moving you need to work a lot really. At the end of such a tremendous effort, the Hungarian section was available to visitors. Now the website could boast about having four versions in four languages. And in 2015, another language was added: Russian! And finally, at the end of 2016, the last language was added: Hindi. All in all, the website currently supports 6 languages.

      At the end of 2016, I moved to a new fast server (a VPS), and in August of 2017 I decided to change the title and URL of the website from 'Sanskrit & Sánscrito' and 'sanskrit-sanscrito.com.ar' to 'Sanskrit & Trika Shaivism' and 'sanskrit-trikashaivism.com'. Why? I changed the title because 'Sanskrit & Sánscrito' was created when the website was in English and Spanish only. With the addition of four more languages, the title stopped communicating the real content of the website. Besides, the old .com.ar URL demanded a extremely bureaucratic process to renovate every year (remember that I live in Moscow and Argentina is very far). While I kept the old international URL ( 'sanskrit-sanscrito.com'), I implemented a new URL which could communicate the real content of the website: 'sanskrit-trikashaivism.com'.

      Over these 20 years, I have fully translated several scriptures such as Śivasūtra-s, Śivasūtravimarśinī, Spandakārikā-s, Spandanirṇaya, Paramārthasāra, Pātañjalayogasūtra-s, etc. And many other scriptures are in process such as Parātrīśikāvivaraṇa, Ṣaṭtriṁśattattvasandoha, Tantrāloka, etc. To translate scriptures (let alone to explain them to the visitors) is very time consuming as I have to check that the meanings of many terms are completely accurate. This forces me to read a lot. For example, to currently translate Tantrāloka, I am reading practically the whole Jayaratha's commentary directly from Sanskrit. The process is hellish, obviously. And to make the things even more complicated, my method of translation is a word for word one. Why I am translating word for word and not as most translators do, i.e. in a running way? For two reasons: Because in this way, if someone is doubtful about my translation of a certain term, he can search it in a Sanskrit dictionary. Moreover, this website also deals with Sanskrit language. Therefore, it is very useful for Sanskrit students to have a scripture completely dismantled. In this way they can see the way it was assembled by the original author.

      If I reached this point in the development of my teachings, it is all due to the website, which was built by express command of the Great Lord. For example, through mysterious processes, the website brought me to Moscow, from where I could expand my teachings much faster and so on. There is a mystery in His commands that cannot be unraveled at first. One just must do His bidding to the letter and everything will be OK. I have just done that!

      Allow me to express my heartfelt thanks to the currently active collaborators, i.e. to Paulo and Claudio from Brazil, to Marlon Melin from Canada, to Dávid Durvāsās and Tamás István Énisz from Hungary, and to my own wife, Natalia Ambikā, from Russia. Also, my sincere thanks to Zoltán Kṣemarāja (the developer) who, despite not participating in my community right now, continues to help me from time to time when the website needs some technical fix. Furthermore, I want to extend my thanks to all the people who collaborated with me to expand the website, but who, for the nature itself of the Play of Parabhairava, are now gone. It has been a 20 years adventure into the Massive Being of the Great Lord indeed!

      Finally, I consider this website to be my 'sevā' or service to Parabhairava (the Supreme Being). Therefore, in spite of the upcoming expansions in my mission, I will continue to strive to keep the website as it has been so far: A totally free website totally devoid of advertising. May the Supreme Bhairava be pleased with my service!
    2. And now some statistical data. Remember that this website deals with topics that are not very popular in this world. I guess that if I published a website about Yoga postures, I would be receiving more visitors: (1) 2000 to 3000 visits daily. (2) The main countries visiting 'Sanskrit & Trika Shaivism' are, in this order: United States, India, Spain, Brazil, Canada, Argentina, Russian Federation, Mexico, Great Britain and Hungary.
    3. Happy anniversary! Enjoy!

    3. But I started a second small book about Trika Shaivism. I had to write 40 aphorisms in Sanskrit and in verse. At this moment I am about to finish the second book... and there will be no third book for now. I plan to publish both books during this year.
    4. After finishing my second book, I will be able to continue with my translation of Tantrāloka here.
    5. Enjoy!
  11. 03/24: Sanskrit Editor NUI: New software! Details

    pic 18

    1. Our collaborator Marlon Melin launched a new version of his software: Sanskrit Editor NUI.
    2. Marlon explains what brand-new Sanskrit Editor NUI is: "Sanskrit Editor NUI - defaults to Microsoft Nirmala UI font for Devanāgarī script (available on Windows 8.1 and up) . Use this version if you are unable to install fonts on your computer due to Administrator restrictions. This will fix the issue of the script showing as little boxes instead of characters. For best results always use the original version with recommended fonts if possible (unless you have a preference for Nirmala UI!)".
    3. So, Sanskrit Editor NUI changes the default Devanāgarī Sanskrit font from 'Sanskrit 2003' to 'Nirmala UI'. This is very important for people who cannot install fonts (in this case 'Sanskrit 2003') due to restrictions by Administrator. This situation is very likely to happen when one is in his job. The new Sanskrit Editor NUI comes to help people out of that issue. Good work, Marlon!
    4. I am almost finishing my Parabhairavayoga book. Just adding charts and stuff like this. It will be published during this year, I hope.
    5. Enjoy!
  12. 03/07: Brand-new translations: Read here! Details

    pic 17

    1. Natalia Ambikā, our collaborator, translated into Russian Learning Sanskrit - First Steps (1) [our oldest page on the website]. Awesome!
    2. Additionally, she also translated into Russian both the Traditional arrangement of the Sanskrit alphabet and A better variant arrangement of the Sanskrit alphabet. Congratulations!
    3. My work on the Parabhairavayoga book is taking me longer than planned. Though the main content of the book is already written, now I am adding more stuff (I have a tendency to make the things huge, you know). Besides, the size of the glossary will be enormous (till now around 400 entries). It will be the basic book for students of Parabhairavayoga. As always, in practice the things are not so simple as in theory. Anyway, I plan to finish the whole thing this month.
    4. Enjoy!
  13. 02/11: Tantrāloka: Chapter 4 (part 1/2) Details

    pic 16

    1. Now it is published the first portion (stanzas 1 to 150) of the fourth chapter in Tantrāloka!
    2. The fourth chapter in Tantrāloka deals with Śāktopāya (the means pertaining to Śakti). In this first part, Abhinavagupta explains the purification of the vikalpa-s (putting it simple, 'thoughts'), the essence of superior logic, the real nature of the Guru, uselessness of the limbs of Yoga (of Patañjali's Yoga), disregard for the artificial worship, etc., and he starts to explain the emergence of the wheels of Consciousness (a topic he will complete in the second part).
    3. So far, I have translated 826 out of 5847 stanzas (around 14% of the whole scripture).
    4. It has been a very hard translation due to the complexities of the subjects being dealt with (and Abhinavagupta's Sanskrit is never a stroll in the park). I needed practically all the time the help of the Jayaratha's commentary in Sanskrit too (not so hard as that of Abhinavagupta, but anyway it is not simple because the topics are not simple at all). Very deep teachings then.
    5. The whole fourth chapter contains 279 stanzas. Therefore, the remaining 129 stanzas will be published in the near future.
    6. Now I need two weeks or so to complete my book about Parabhairavayoga. Indexes, glossary, etc. will be written later (oh yes, it is a very hard work really). This book will be a kind of main book on Parabhairavayoga. In short, it will be the corner-stone of all the teachings on which my Yoga is based. I plan to publish it during this year! After this short but hard work, I will continue with Tantrāloka.
    7. I never stop and even when I look like resting only, I am not just resting but creating something new in my intellect!
    8. Ah! Something much bigger is also slowly but firmly approaching! I will leave you with the mystery!
    9. Enjoy!
  14. 01/31: New translations: Read attentively! Details

    pic 15

    1. Dávid Durvāsās, our collaborator, finished translating the first portion (stanzas 1 to 150) of the third chapter in Tantrāloka into Hungarian. Very good job!
    2. Natalia Ambikā, another collaborator, finished translating into Russian the last portion of section 3 in Śivasūtravimarśinī. With this update, Natalia has completely finished the entire Śivasūtravimarśinī. Congratulations on this immense effort!
    3. Both collaborators continue to work on more stuff, of course.
    4. On my part, I continue to work (half-way by now) on the fourth chapter of Tantrāloka. There will be an update soon!
    5. Enjoy!
  15. 01/23: Tantrāloka: Chapter 3 (part 2/2) Details

    pic 14

    1. The second part of the third chapter in Tantrāloka is finished. And with this update, I can affirm that the whole third chapter is now completely translated.
    2. In this second part, Abhinavagupta finishes his explanation of Mātṛkācakra (The group of letters), and after that he makes an exposition about Pratyāhāra (the combination of the first letter and the last letter of the Sanskrit alphabet).
    3. Śāmbhavopāya, the means of Śambhu, is called by Abhinavagupta: 'Dissolution of the mind'. It is characterized by the absence of thoughts and the constant rising (the State of Śiva is constantly active).
    4. Now I continue working on chapter 4 —dealing with Śāktopāya— of this beautiful scripture!
    5. Enjoy!
  16. 01/06: Tantrāloka: Chapter 3 (part 1/2) Details

    pic 13

    1. Now the first 150 stanzas of the chapter 3 in Tantrāloka about Śāmbhavopāya are totally translated!
    2. By means of these aphorisms, Abhinavagupta explains completely the Bimbapratimbimbavāda (The theory of the object and its reflection). Next, he starts to explain Mātṛkācakra (The group of letters), a topic that he will finish in the remaining stanzas of the third chapter.
    3. Our collaborator Dávid Durvāsās finished his translation from English into Hungarian of the second chapter in Tantrāloka. Congratulations again!!!
    4. Enjoy!

2018

  1. 12/18: Tantrāloka: Chapter 2 Details

    pic 12

    1. The second chapter in Tantrāloka is finished. I will add notes of explanation in the future.
    2. This second chapter deals with Anupāya (lit. devoid of means). This is the Highest State in Trika Shaivism. Two kinds of people reach that condition: (1) It is the Final State that a Yogī attains, generally, after endless years of massive efforts. (2) Very few 'specially blessed' people can enter this stage from the start due to a very intense Grace bestowal from Śiva.
    3. In Anupāya there is nothing to do (no meditation, no worship, no study of scriptures, etc.). It is simply the uninterrupted State of the Supreme Śiva, which, once It is attained, permits the Yogī to continue with his life as usual. If he is eating, he keeps eating, if he is speaking, he keeps speaking, etc. There is no sādhanā in this, as it were, 'path'.
    4. Our collaborator Dávid Durvāsās finished translating into Hungarian the second page and the third page of the first chapter in Tantrāloka. Congratulations!
    5. Now I continue working on chapter 3 —dealing with Śāmbhavopāya— of this very important scripture!
    6. Enjoy!
  2. 12/10: Tantrāloka: Improvement in the index page Details

    pic 11

    1. I polished the index page of Tantrāloka so that it can now be much more useful.
    2. I added three features: (a) I replaced the previous titles of every chapter with the original titles given by Abhinavagupta in Sanskrit at the end of the first chapter; (b) I added the respective translations of the titles of the chapters, obviously; (c) I added a short description —given by Abhinavagupta at the end of the first chapter— of every chapter for the visitors to have a good idea about the contents which are included there.
    3. Now I go on working on chapter 2 of this very important scripture!
    4. Enjoy!
  3. 12/08: Tantrāloka: Chapter 1 (part 3/3) Details

    pic 10

    1. Good news! With the publication of the translation of the stanzas 301 to 332 in Tantrāloka, the entire chapter 1 is completely translated!
    2. According to what Abhinavagupta wrote at the end of the first chapter, this book is only for 'super' Guru-s. Look:
      'Guru-s are authorized to examine/discuss (these teachings of mine) who have (their three) mala-s destroyed, who know the supreme and the inferior --i.e. who know 'a' and 'ha'--, who are established in the real being of Śiva'.
      With this in mind, there is no surprise if most people cannot understand 'something' in Tantrāloka. On top of that, I am not adding yet the notes of explanation. So, my point here is that you should not feel frustrated if after reading you still cannot fully get it. It requires a hight level of scholarship and direct experience.
    3. My work on this scripture continues!
    4. Enjoy!
  4. 12/05: New translations: Read! Details

    pic 9

    1. First of all, our collaborator Dávid Durvāsās finished his English to Hungarian translation of the first chapter in Tantrāloka. And the index page was translated too, of course. Congratulations!
    2. Secondly, Natalia Ambikā finished her English to Russian translation of the aphorisms III.23 to III.33 in Śivasūtravimarśinī. Congratulations too!
    3. Well, our Hungarian and Russian translators are working hard evidently. It is a massive effort to translate such intricate scriptures full of so many complicated technical terms in Sanskrit indeed. Keep it up!
    4. Enjoy!
  5. 11/28: Tantrāloka: Chapter 1 (part 2/3) Details

    pic 8

    1. Another big effort and the stanzas 150 to 300 in Tantrāloka (chapter 1 dealing with the different kinds of knowledge) are now fully translated.
    2. The scholarly style of Abhinavagupta is becoming more and more difficult. No surprise in this! He uses special terminology now and and then, which is extremely difficult to translate. Also, his writing style is involved enough as to say that half of the effort with every stanza is exerted to overcome this obstacle. Again, no surprise! Abhinavagupta has been always the bogeyman in Trika Shaivism and there are serious reasons for him to be labeled like this.
    3. Only 32 stanzas are left to finish the first chapter then. A little more effort and it will be done.
    4. Enjoy!
  6. 11/01: Tantrāloka: Chapter 1 (part 1/3) Details

    pic 7

    1. First of all: The first 150 stanzas of Tantrāloka (chapter 1 dealing with the different kinds of knowledge) are completely translated. Enormous effort really! A high IQ is not enough to do that, you need extra help from Paramaśiva. Apart from this help, I constantly resorted to the Jayaratha's commentary for some light too. Without this extra help you cannot cross the ocean of knowledge in Tantrāloka even if your intellect is quite a champion. What is divine cannot be understood by what is not divine. I am very happy!!!!
    2. Dávid Durvāsās (ex Dávid Farkas) was working a lot too. He finished (1) the second chapter of Mālinīvijayottaratantra; (2) the Part 3 (stanzas 3 to 4) in Parātrīśikāvivaraṇa and (3) the Part 4 (stanzas 3 to 4) in the same scripture. Incredible effort!!!!
    3. We are extremely pleased!!!!!!!
    4. Enjoy!
  7. 10/20: Several news: Read! Details

    pic 6

    1. Natalia Ambikā published her Russian translation of Śivasūtravimarśinī III.12-22. Congratulations on your strenuous efforts, Gurumā!
    2. Dávid Farkas completely finished his Hungarian translation of Spandanirṇaya. Now he has started his translation into Hungarian of Mālinīvijayottaratantra, and the first chapter of this scripture is already available! Massive effort, Dávid!
    3. In the meantime, I, Gabriel Pradīpaka, have finished translating the first 95 stanzas of the first chapter in Tantrāloka. Did you think I had gone away on vacation? Nope, I am always working hard in the shadows. I will be able to publish my translation of the first 150 stanzas of this initial chapter in the near future, I hope, because to fight this terrifying monster is never an easy task for any intellect. The depth of Abhinavagupta's teachings forces me to read many other things apart from Tantrāloka (e.g. other scriptures, commentaries, one million possible interpretations and things like that). This is always a time-consuming process, hence the delay. Sanskrit is always the least of the problems when it comes to translating Abhinavagupta's writings.
    4. Enjoy!
  8. 10/07: Mālinīvijayottaratantra: Chapter 4 Details

    pic 5

    1. I published my translation and explanation of the 4th chapter of Mālinīvijayottaratantra.
    2. In this chapter our beloved Śiva speaks about many mysteries: e.g. the relationship between Mātṛkā/Mālinī and the tattva-s, the different types of Yoga and Knowledge, etc.
    3. Because in all my explanations of Mālinīvijayottaratantra I have to translate many aphorisms occurring in Tantrāloka, possibly I will soon undertake the translation of the whole Tantrāloka (but without any explanation, in order to move faster) so in my future explanations of Mālinīvijayottaratantra I do not have to translate so many aphorisms from Tantrāloka. As both scriptures are complementary, what I do in one is useful for the other. Explanations of Tantrāloka should come later, when Mālinīvijayottaratantra is finally finished. Oh yes, this will take a few years of very hard work, but the final result will be a massive treasure of Trika knowledge available for free.
    4. Enjoy!
  9. 09/24: The Tour: Read! Details

    pic 4

    1. What is the point of spending plenty of time searching for what you want to find on the website? Simply visit the Tour (look up!).
    2. I specially built the Tour for making searching stuff here much faster and intuitive. This is accomplished by presenting the information in a very organized way.
    3. So, instead of spending hours trying to find something, instead of sending me messages for help about finding what you need, it is a much better solution to use the Tour really.
    4. Enjoy!
  10. 09/20: Other two important news: Read! Details

    pic 4

    1. I completely updated the Tour, e.g. I updated the innumerable links in the Russian and Hindi sections, I updated my recommendations about browsers and so on.
    2. I updated the Privacy and Security Statement, specially regarding cookies.
    3. We are not collecting information from our visitors in order to create profiles and things like this. The use of cookies here is for tasks that are strictly indispensable for the functioning of the website. Anyway, we use, to a very limited extent, the services of Facebook, Google and Paypal.

    2. The Parabhairavayoga Gallery has been updated with all the pictures of 2018.
    3. Parabhairavayoga Gallery is one of our three websites (the other two are Parabhairavayoga.com and the one you are on right now). It is dedicated to show pictures of Guru Gabriel Pradīpaka (Gurujī) along with disciples and family during his mission of spreading the teachings of his own Parabhairavayoga system. Additional photos of Gurujī's daily life are shown as well.

  12. 09/15: Tantrāloka: Full transcription Details

    pic 2

    1. I transcribed the entire Tantrāloka (a massive Trika scripture composed by Abhinavagupta, the greatest Trika Master of all time).
    2. It was a tremendous effort on my part, but now the scripture is ready to be translated.
    3. Now you have 330 new documents (55 per language) here. So the size of our website increased its number of documents in around 17% all of sudden.
    4. When I translate this scripture in the future, I plan on adding, as always, my own explanations. So, it will become an immense source of Trika knowledge available for free in many languages.
    5. Enjoy!
  13. 09/13: Navigation bar: Updated and polished Details

    pic 1

    1. The navigation bar (look up!) has been updated and polished with new links.
    2. There are new links to our Facebook Page, to our YouTube Channel and to the mini-biography of Gurujī and other collaborators.
    3. Also, we are 'testing' a new way to show news on the website (e.g. by adding pictures to make the news more colorful). Additionally, the plan is to post more frequently news about different topics, e.g. about guiding our visitors to different areas of our website.
    4. If everything is OK with this prototype regarding showing news, the new system will be permanent.
    5. Enjoy!
  14. 07/22: Mālinīvijayottaratantra: Full transcription Details
    1. I transcribed all the remaining stanzas (since chapter 4 to chapter 23) of Mālinīvijayottaratantra. Now the full text is transcribed into devanāgarī (original signs) and IAST transliteration.
    2. Of course, I had to do all this for the other five languages too. Huge effort!
    3. Enjoy!
  15. 07/13: DFSL updated: Read the news! Details
    1. After a long task of 'purification', now the DFSL (Directory of Free Sanskrit Links) is totally 'up-to-date'.
    2. Because I did not touch the DFSL for some years, I had to remove many websites which had been discontinued. Besides, I made the most of this opportunity to score the websites without score yet, and also I 're-scored' some other websites.
    3. I also added a few new websites!
    4. Enjoy!
  16. 06/25: Two things: Read the news! Details
    1. After my seminar in Budapest —since June 1st to June 3rd— I published on my YouTube channel the six long videos (more than 17 hours) in which I briefly explained the teachings contained in the celebrated Śivasūtra-s (The aphorisms of Śiva).
    2. Our collaborator Sāī Abhinavagupta changed the software on which our DFSL (Directory of Free Sanskrit Links) was running. The old DFSL software was very good but already too old after serving for fourteen years without updates as the developer discontinued it. After all this hard time-consuming work, now we can say that the whole website is running on fully modern technology. Great effort, Sāī!
    3. Enjoy!
  17. 05/21: Mālinīvijayottaratantra: Chapter 3 Details
    1. I published the third chapter of Mālinīvijayottaratantra containing 68 stanzas (the most sacred Tantra of Trika Shaivism).
    2. In this chapter Śiva extracts (but in a veiled way) tons of mantra-s which are sacred to the śaiva-s.
    3. Natalia Ambikā translated the second section of Śivasūtravimarśinī into Russian language. Great effort!
    4. Dávid Farkas (Dávid Durvāsās) translated the Main Page of Mālinīvijayottaratantra (introduction and links to the chapters). Congratulations!
    5. May all this massive effort be for the elevation of all the sincere devotees of Śiva!
    6. Enjoy!

    04/04/2018

    Gabriel Pradīpaka

    1. This is the schedule of my next seminar in Hungary during the first three days of June.
    2. The subject to be dealt with in this seminar will be 'Śivasūtra-s' (the aphorisms of Śiva revealed by Śiva Himself twelve centuries ago in the region of Kashmir, India). This scripture contains the most esoteric teachings of Trika Shaivism. It consists of 77 aphorisms revealed to the venerable sage Vasugupta. There are several commentaries on these aphorisms but Kṣemarāja's Śivasūtravimarśinī is regarded as the most authoritative one. Sage Kṣemarāja was the main disciple of the greatest Trika Master: Abhinavagupta. I will include some portions of his vast commentary in the seminar.
    3. Also, there is more information about this important event on the Hungarian Trika Page on Facebook.
    4. And my disciples in Hungary also created an event in Allevents.in.
    5. In addition, there is a group on Facebook exclusively created to speak about my upcoming seminar in Budapest.
    6. Enjoy!

My work on the fourth section of Spandanirṇaya is now finished! And with this, I can announce that the whole Spandanirṇaya has been then translated and explained by me completely! May there be welfare for all!
    2. It took me many months of strenuous efforts to finish such a sacred scripture. If you print it out, you will get a few hundreds of pages indeed! I dedicate all my work to Paramaśiva, of whose Body this colossal universe is just a small particle situated in a corner of His Being!
    3. I am already working hard with the next scripture!

    2. अब मैं शेष अर्ध-भाग को पूरा करने के लिए तैयार हूं!
    3. आनंद लें!
  2. 12/09: विशाल अद्यतन: समाचार पढ़ें! Details
    1. गुरुजी नवंबर के महीने में गणेशपुरी (भारत) में थे —उनकी आध्यात्मिक वंश की पवित्र भूमि—!
    2. गणेशपुरी में गुरुजी के काम के कारण, आपके लिए ये नई चीजें उपलब्ध हैं: (1) विशाल सेमिनार जो यूट्यूब पर प्रकाशित की गई है, (2) हमारा परभैरवयोग गैलरी भी कई नई तस्वीरों के साथ अपडेट किया गया है, और (3) फेसबुक पर हमारा पृष्ठ इसी तरह सभी समाचारों और मीडिया के साथ अपडेट किया गया है।
    3. यूट्यूब पर वीडियो अपडेट के अलावा, चैनल भी पूरी तरह से पुनर्निर्मित किया गया है।
    4. हमारा यूट्यूब चैनल तेजी से बढ़ रहा है। अब इसमें १८३ (आम तौर पर लंबे) वीडियो हैं जो ३०,००० से भी अधिक बार देखे गये हैं। चैनल में ३३८ सदस्य भी हैं!
    5. इसके अतिरिक्त, हमारे सहयोगी भी कड़ी मेहनत कर रहे थे: (1) डाविड फार्कस ने स्पन्दनिर्णय के दूसरे अनुभाग को पूरी तरह से हंगेरियन में अनुवाद किया (भारी कार्य!) और (2) नतालिया अम्बिका ने शिवसूत्रविमर्शिनी के पहले दस सूत्रों का रूसी में अनुवाद पूरा किया (एक और बड़ा प्रयास!)।

    1. मैंने स्पन्दनिर्णय के संपूर्ण दूसरे अनुभाग (स्पन्दकारिकाँ पर सबसे आधिकारिक विवरण, जो कि महान क्षेमराज द्वारा लिखा गया था) का अनुवाद/विवरण/स्पष्टीकरण प्रकाशित किया। यह दूसरे अनुभाग में केवल सात सूत्र हैं, लेकिन उनका अर्थ बेहद गहरा है। इस कारण, मुझे कई महत्वपूर्ण विषयों को विस्तार से समझाने के लिए मजबूर होना पड़ा। तो, हाँ, यह एक बहुत लंबा पृष्ठ है, शायद अब तक मेरे द्वारा प्रकाशित किया गया सबसे लंबा पृष्ठ।
    2. अब, मैं तीसरे अनुभाग के पहले सूत्रों को अनुवाद करना शुरू कर रहा हूं।
    3. आनंद लें!
  5. 09/17: स्पन्दनिर्णय I.२२ से I.२५ तक: समाचार पढ़ें! Details
    1. मैंने स्पन्दनिर्णय के पहले अनुभाग के २२ से २५ तक सूत्रों (स्पन्दकारिकाँ पर सबसे आधिकारिक विवरण, जो कि महान क्षेमराज द्वारा लिखा गया था) का अनुवाद/विवरण/स्पष्टीकरण प्रकाशित किया, और इसके द्वारा मैं घोषणा कर सकता हूं कि मैंने स्पन्दनिर्णय के पहले अनुभाग के साथ अपना काम समाप्त कर दिया।
    2. अब मैं गति प्राप्त कर रहा हूं और तेजी से आगे बढ़ रहा हूं!
    3. इसके अलावा, हमारे सहयोगी नतालिया अंबिका ने ब्लॉग पर "परभैरवयोग में अभ्यास - भाग २" का रूसी में अनुवाद समाप्त कर दिया, और अब वह शिवसूत्रविमर्शिनी का अनुवाद शुरू कर रही है। अत्युत्तम प्रयास!
    4. आनंद लें!
  6. 09/02: स्पन्दनिर्णय I.१७ से I.२१ तक: समाचार पढ़ें! Details
    1. यह मुख्य वेबसाइट पर तीन साल से बिना किसी त्रिक धर्मग्रंथ के अनुवाद के बाद, मैं स्पन्दनिर्णय के पहले अनुभाग के १९ से २१ तक सूत्रों (स्पन्दकारिकाँ पर सबसे आधिकारिक विवरण, जो कि महान क्षेमराज द्वारा लिखा गया था) का अनुवाद/विवरण/स्पष्टीकरण प्रकाशित करते हुए अपना कार्य पुनः प्रारम्भ कर रहा हूँ।
    2. मुझे आशा है कि आप इस अचानक अद्यतन से खुश हैं!
    3. आनंद लें!
  7. 08/25: और अनुवाद: समाचार पढ़ें! Details
    1. डाविड फार्कस ने परात्रीशिकाविवरण (सबसे कठिन त्रिक शास्त्र) में १ और २ श्लोक के चौथे भाग तक अनुवाद किया। अतः उसने पहले दो श्लोक और उनकी टिप्पणियों का हंगेरियन में अनुवाद पूरी तरह से समाप्त कर दिया।
    2. हमारे सहयोगी, ब्राज़ीलियाई जुड़वाँ ने अभिनवगुप्त विरचित परमार्थसार में श्लोक ७४ (और उसके संबंधित टिप्पणी) तक अनुवाद किया।
    3. बधाई हो, सहयोगी, अपने महान कार्य पर!
    4. आनंद लें!
  8. 08/24: नया यू.आर.एल और शीर्षक: यहां पढ़ें! Details

    इस वेबसाइट के डोमेन नाम और शीर्षक, दोनों में बदलाव आया है!

    1. नया डोमेन नाम: « Sanskrit-trikashaivism.com » —पुराना डोमेन नाम, Sanskrit-sanscrito.com, निश्चित रूप से अब भी पृष्ठभूमि में काम कर रहा है, और तुरंत आपको नए डोमेन नाम पर पुनर्निर्देशित करता है—।
    2. नया शीर्षक: « संस्कृत & त्रिक शैवदर्शन » (पुराना शीर्षक: संस्कृत & सन्स्क्रितो)। यह वेबसाइट इन अठारह वर्षों के दौरान विकसित हुई है, और हमने सोचा कि चीजों की वर्तमान स्थिति को व्यक्त करने के लिए एक परिवर्तन आवश्यक है। प्रारंभ में, मैंने वेबसाइट को 'संस्कृत और सन्स्क्रितो' का नाम दिया था क्योंकि इसमें दो वर्ग शामिल थे - एक वर्ग अंग्रेजी में और दूसरा वर्ग स्पेनिश में। मगर, वर्षों से (इस क्रम में) पुर्तगाली, हंगेरियन, रूसी और हिंदी वर्गों के जोड़ से वेबसाइट के शीर्षक ने सच्चाई को व्यक्त करना बंद कर दिया। इसके अलावा, त्रिक शैवदर्शन (कश्मीर का महान अद्वैत शैवदर्शन) धीरे-धीरे हमारी साइट पर अपना महत्व बढ़ाते हुए ऐसे स्तर पर पहुंच गया है जहां से वह लगभग अत्यन्त महत्वपूर्ण है। इस कारण से, नये शीर्षक में उत्तरी भारत के इस महत्वपूर्ण दार्शनिक प्रणाली का नाम शामिल है। इसके द्वारा त्रिक शैवदर्शन से संबंधित खोज भी ज्यादा आसान और अधिक महत्वपूर्ण बनेंगे।
    3. संक्षेप में, हम दोनों डोमेन नाम रखते हैं: Sanskrit-trikashaivism.com और Sanskrit-sanscrito.com (नया और पुराना, क्रमशः) ताकि आगंतुकों को हमें ढूंढने में कोई समस्या न हो।
    4. चेतावनी: हमने « Sanskrit-sanscrito.com.ar » डोमेन नाम छोड़ दिया है। इसलिए, इस डोमेन नाम का उपयोग करने वाली किसी भी भविष्य वेबसाइट का हमारे साथ कोई रिश्ता नहीं है
    5. जो लोग हमें बैकलिंक दे रहे हैं, कृपया अपने पन्नों पर पुराने/छोड़े हुए Sanskrit-sanscrito.com.ar (साथ ही साथ पूरी तरह से काम करने वाले Sanskrit-sanscrito.com) को नई Sanskrit-trikashaivism.com से अपडेट करें।
    6. आनंद लें!
  9. 07/19: एक विशाल अद्यतन: समाचार पढ़ें! Details
    1. हमारे सहयोगी, डाविड फार्कस ने आदरणीय अभिनवगुप्त विरचित परमार्थसार का हंगेरियन में अनुवाद पूरा किया। (बधाई हो, डाविड!)
    2. उस विशाल अनुवाद को पूरा करने से प्रसन्न न हुए, उसने परात्रीशिकाविवरण (सबसे कठिन त्रिक शास्त्र) को अनुवाद करना प्रारम्भ किया। अब तक उसने परिचय तथा १ और २ श्लोकों के पहले भाग को अनुवाद किया है। (बहुत बढ़िया, डाविड!)
    3. हमारे सहयोगी, नतालिया आम्बिका (गुरुमा के नाम से भी जानी वाली) ने ब्लॉग पर मेरी "परभैरवयोगसंस्थापनप्रचोदनम लघु वृत्ति" - (भाग १ - भाग २ - भाग ३) का रूसी में भारी अनुवाद पूरा किया। (अत्युत्तम!)
    4. और उसने ब्लॉग पर अनुवाद जारी रखा: परभैरवयोग में अभ्यास - भाग १। (इसे जारी रखो!)
    5. आशापूर्वक आप इस विशाल अद्यतन से खुश हैं।
    6. आनंद लें!
  10. 05/24: एक और महत्वपूर्ण ब्लॉग अद्यतन: समाचार पढ़ें! Details
    1. मैंने ब्लॉग पर 'परभैरवयोग में अभ्यासों के बारे में मेरे लंबे निबंध का दूसरा भाग' प्रकाशित किया!
    2. इस दूसरे भाग में मैं शाम्भवोपाय के बारे में सिखाता हूं, जो कि त्रिक शैवदर्शन में सबसे आसान और साथ ही सबसे कठिन विधि है। मैंने शाम्भवोपाय के साथ मेरा अपना अनुभव भी वर्णित किया ताकि पाठक इस विधि को अधिक वास्तविक तरीके से जान सकें।
    3. आदरणीय अभिनवगुप्त विरचित परमार्थसार में हमारे सहयोगी, डाविड फार्कस ने ५१ से ७० श्लोकों (टिप्पणियाँ और नोट्स सहित)... को हंगेरियन में अनुवाद किया... एक और बड़ी छलांग! महान प्रयास! अनुवाद करने के लिए केवल ३५ पन्ने बचे हैं। हम लगभग वहां हैं!
    4. आनंद लें!
  11. 03/26: ब्लॉग अपडेट: समाचार पढ़ें! Details
    1. मैंने ब्लॉग पर 'परभैरवयोग में अभ्यासों के बारे में अपना लंबा निबंध' प्रारम्भ किया!
    2. मेरा काम अभी शुरू हो रहा है और यह बड़े पैमाने पर होगा जब मैं अधिक से अधिक स्पष्टीकरण जोड़ूंगा। परभैरवयोग (जो कि ज्यादातर त्रिक दर्शनशास्र और अभ्यासों पर आधारित है) के मार्ग पर चलने वाले लोगों के लिए यह एक पूर्ण मार्गदर्शक होगा।
    3. अभिनवगुप्त विरचित परमार्थसार में हमारे सहयोगी डाविड फार्कस ने १२ से ५० तक श्लोकों का अनुवाद किया (टिप्पणियाँ और नोट्स सहित)... एक विशाल छलांग!!!... हंगेरियन में। बढ़िया प्रयास!
    4. आनंद लें!

    5. Enjoy!

  1. 12/23: सुरक्षा: स.स.ल (सुरक्षित सॉकेट लेयर) दोनों वेबसाइटों की सुरक्षा कर रहा है Details

    अब स.स.ल (सुरक्षित सॉकेट लेयर) sanskrit-trikashaivism.com और parabhairavayoga.com दोनों की सुरक्षा कर रहा है।

    इसका मतलब है कि हमारी वेबसाइटों के साथ आपका कनेक्शन एन्क्रिप्ट किया गया है और इसलिए आप उन्हें सर्फ करते समय सुरक्षित रहेंगे।

    इसलिए, अब आपके बुकमार्क इस तरह दिखने चाहिए:

    https://www.sanskrit-trikashaivism.com

    https://www.parabhairavayoga.com

  2. 12/21: नया ब्लॉग: और पढ़ें! Details
    1. ब्लॉग 'पूरी' तरह से बदल दिया गया है! अब यह परभैरवयोग का घर है।
    2. नया डिजाइन पूरी तरह से पेशेवर है और इसमें नई विशेषताएँ शामिल है, जैसे कि 'फीचर्ड' (विशेष रूप से प्रदर्शित) वीडियो और पोस्ट, फेसबुक पर हमारे पेज के साथ सीधा कनेक्शन, आदि।
    3. यह ब्लॉग अब वास्तव में एक वेबसाइट की तरह है, जो निवसित Parabhairavayoga.com पर है (न केवल अलग यू.आर.एल लेकिन अलग आई पी (IP) एड्रेस भी)।
    4. संक्षेप में, ब्लॉग हमारे एकदम नये परभैरवयोग के बारे में सभी प्रमुख प्रकाशनों का निवास-स्थान होगा!
    5. क्या आपको और चाहिए? लीजिए!: मुख्य वेबसाइट को भी पूरी तरह से बदल दिया गया है! डिजाइन भी पेशेवर है, जाहिर है। अब यह एक पुराने चर्मपत्र जैसा दिखता है जिस पर भारतीय मंदिरों का चित्र है। इस नई शैली के पूरक के लिए फ़ॉन्ट को तदनुसार डेस्कटॉप और मुद्रण के लिए अंदिका से जेन्टियम में बदल दिया गया है (पठनीयता कारणों के लिए टैबलेट और फोन के लिए अंदिका रखा गया है)।
    6. क्या आप और भी चाहते हैं? और लीजिए!: ब्राज़िली जुड़वाँ ने अभिनवगुप्त विरचित परमार्थसार के अपने अनुवाद को श्लोक ३५ (और उसके संबंधित लंबी टिप्पणी) तक विस्तार किया! इस तरह के एक विशाल प्रयास के लिए पौलो और क्लौदियो को मेरी शुभकामनाएं!
    7. हमारे सहयोगी डाविड फार्कस ने इसी धर्मग्रंथ का अनुवाद शुरू किया, लेकिन हंगेरियन में, बेशक। बहुत बढ़िया!
    8. ठीक है, यह सभी नवीकरण और विस्तार को प्राप्त करने के लिए एक महान प्रयास किया गया है (कई घंटों का काम और इस प्रक्रिया में काफी सारा पैसा भी डाला गया है)। आशापूर्वक आप इसके साथ खुश हैं!
    9. आनंद लें!
  3. 12/11: NEW SERVER: Read more! Details
    1. New hosting company, new server, more for you!
    2. We left behind 'shared hosting' and embraced 'Virtual Private Server' (VPS): Read this to learn more.
    3. Advantages: (1) Access to more resources (better RAM, more CPU power, more bandwidth which translates into faster page load, etc.), (2) Customizable, (3) We pay for what we need and we can later easily expand to accommodate our future needs, (4) Much more control and the ability to use scripts with more freedom.
    4. Extra advantages in our new hosting plan: (1) Fully managed server plus full access to the 'root', (2) Superb support, (3) Very fast server located in Amsterdam (hosting company based in the United States but with a subsidiary in Netherlands).
    5. Do you want more? You have it: SSL for our site so you can safely surf our contents. In the past it was like this: http://www.sanskrit-trikashaivism.com and now it looks like this: https://www.sanskrit-trikashaivism.com
    6. And the disadvantages? Oh, it is more costly than shared hosting. Well, you cannot have it all, you know!
    7. And we have more in the near future: New design of the website and blog (the latter is locked by password till the process of redesigning it ends).
    8. Bookmark our new address: https://www.sanskrit-trikashaivism.com
    9. Anyway, the old URL http://www.sanskrit-sanscrito.com.ar (abandoned domain name) should seamlessly redirect you to the new one, while the old address of the blog, i.e. http://www.gabrielpradiipaka.com.ar will redirect you to https://www.parabhairavayoga.com (temporarily locked while we redesign it).
    10. Enjoy!

  5. 01/25: त्रिक गुरु गब्रिएल प्रदीपक: उनके बारे में Details

    Trika Guru Gabriel Pradīpakaगब्रिएल प्रदीपक

    आध्यात्मिक नाम: प्रदीपक (अक्षरशः "वह व्यक्ति जो प्रकाश डालता है", अर्थात वह व्यक्ति जो धर्मग्रंथों के गुप्त अर्थों पर प्रकाश डालता है)।

    राष्ट्रीयता: अर्जेंटीनी। वह रोसारियो में पैदा हुए थे, किन्तु मॉस्को में रहते हैं।

    Spiritual lineage: १९८३ (अप्रैल) में उन्होने शक्तिपात (शक्ति का अवरोहण, अर्थात अनुग्रह) के रूप में सहज दीक्षा प्राप्त किया जब वह स्वामी मुक्तानन्द की एक तस्वीर देखते वक्त पवित्र मंत्र "ॐ नमः शिवाय" का जाप कर रहे थे। इसलिए, १९८२ में स्वामी मुक्तानन्द के समाधि लेने के बावजूद, गब्रिएल प्रदीपक उन्हे अपना गुरु मानते है। कुछ महीने बाद (अक्टूबर, १९८३) उनको स्वामी अलक्षानन्द (मुक्तानन्द के आध्यात्मिक वंश के एक सदस्य) ने "नियमानुसार" दीक्षा दिया। जैसे आप निश्चित रूप से जानते हैं... या शायद नहीं... मुक्तानन्द वह उस्ताद है जिन्होने पश्चिम को सिद्धयोग पथ से परिचित किया। १९८९ तक गब्रिएल प्रदीपक प्रसिद्ध सिद्ध योग समाज में सीख/काम कर रहे थे। १९८९ के पिछले भाग से १९९१ के अंतिम भाग तक और १९९४ के पिछले भाग से १९९७ के अंतिम भाग तक वह एक और शिक्षक (महान मुक्तानन्द के एक और शिष्य) के साथ सीख/सिखा/काम कर रहे थे, जो उनके योगी जीवन में महत्वपूर्ण थे। और १९९७ के बाद से वह "अपने दम पर" हैं।

    वह स्वामी लक्ष्मण जू को अपने गुरु के रूप में पहचानते हैं।

    २०१६ के फरवरी में उन्होंने परभैरवयोग की स्थापना की, जो एक नवीनतम आध्यात्मिक आंदोलन है और जिसकी दुनिया भर में फैलाव की शुरुआत हुई है।

    संक्षेप में, वह संस्कृत भाषा और त्रिक दर्शन से परिचित एक आध्यात्मिक गुरु है, जो संपूर्ण आध्यात्मिकता पर प्रकाश डालते है और आत्मख्याति या अंतिम मुक्ति के नाम से जाने गए प्रक्रिया के साथ आध्यात्मिक उम्मीदवारों की मदद करते है।
