Neelakantha Meditation Initiation
as Taught in Blue Throat Yoga
Neelakantha Meditation is a truly life transforming practice taught by Paul Muller-Ortega, the founder of Blue Throat Yoga.
I received initiation from Paul in 2007. Over the next 9 years, I engaged in daily practice, study, and the undertaking of various immersive courses Paul held. On July 31, 2016, I became one of the first Authorized Teachers of Neelakantha Meditation.
It is from my home in Kyoto, Japan that I have been offering initiation into Neelakantha Meditation through the beginning of 2020. I am currently the only Authorized Teacher of Neelakantha Meditation in Asia. During this time, to receive initiation, the initiate and I had to be in the same room.
Because of the current global pandemic, it is now permissible for me to perform Distance Initiation via Zoom, Skype, Facetime, or another video platform. This permission has been granted by Paul because the present pandemic keeps us from meeting face to face.
This means that you can receive initiation in the comfort of your own home. You are able to choose the day and time you prefer. Once you have confirmed your Initiation Day, the initiation process is of three steps: Pre-Initiation Talk, Initiation, and Post-Initiation Talk.
- Pre-Initiation Talk
I will outline the initiation process for you. You will learn how the sequence of your Initiation will unfold, and gain the understanding of why it unfolds in that way.
You will receive your own personal Heart Seed Mantra – in Sanskrit called the Hṛidaya Bīja Mantra – and instructed as to the proper usage of this mantra.
- Post-Initiation Talk
I will review the instructions for proper use of the mantra, and explain more details about the technology of the mantra itself. You will have a firm conceptual grasp of why the mantra works. This will support your experiential understandings that will begin to arise, even within the first few days of taking up your daily practice.
Neelakantha Meditation is a not only a meditation practice, but truly a technology of consciousness. It is a practice that has risen from the ancient non-dual Shaiva-Shakta Tantra tradition of the Householder path of practice. Householder here means, a person who is seeking to connect to and utilize the untapped potential each of us holds deep inside of ourselves. This tradition is a mystical science, containing clear articulations about how Neelakantha Meditation works.
One of the unique aspects of this practice is you do not need to have any previous knowledge or experience related to Shaiva-Shakta Tantra, Hinduism, Yoga, or even meditation, to both successfully receive Initiation and make a daily practice of Neelakantha Meditation a part of your life.
In addition to this life transforming practice, you will receive access to the Blue Throat Yoga online library. This library is an invaluable resource of additional practices, sequences of self-inquiry, and numerous recordings of talks from Paul on a wide variety of subjects related to your Neelakantha Meditation practice.
Furthermore, this library gives you access to translations of astounding wisdom texts from the Shaiva-Shakta Tantra tradition. These are direct translations by Paul that at present are only accessible to the Blue Throat Yoga community of practitioners and Teachers.
And best of all, you will have a very large community of fellow practitioners from around the world to gather with from time to time via video and – when it is deemed safe – in person at various community gatherings held by both Paul himself, and Authorized Teachers.
You will also have access to me for any questions that you may have about your practice.
Your Initiation includes:
- Your personal Heart Seed Mantra and instruction in proper usage.
- Full access to the Blue Throat Yoga online library, containing hundreds of hours of recordings, additional practices, and Paul’s translations of ancient Tantric wisdom scriptures. All of these practical and powerful tools for transformation you are free to download to peruse and practice at your leisure.
- The option to join various gatherings, hosted by Paul and, at times, Authorized Teachers.
- Full access to me for support for your Neelakantha Meditation practice, for life!
