wisdom of the tantra

wisdom of the tantra

On the most fundamental level as I said earlier all the teachings of the Buddha is to go against the habit. But this does not mean that all the method that is used as a opposition towards the habit always actually looks different, acts different, or functions different. Not at all. In fact many of the methods that are used by the Tantra as tools to combat the habit does itself look very much like the problem. This is actually the wisdom of the Tantra again. The problem and the solutions are almost identical. And this is a deliberate. If the solution and the problem are visibly separate and different then more separate more visible different, starkly different, we call it causal path. This is what Mahayana or the Shravakayana teaches. So things like if you have lots of desire you should meditate upon skeletons, death, bones, all of this. If you have lots of aggression you should meditate love and compassion. So the problem and the solution are seemingly very very opposite. But in the Tantrayana, the skill of the Tantrayana, specially if the specific tantric practice is coming from more profound and higher Tantra, then the solution and the problem are almost identical.
