BARBARIANS MEDITATION BY LORIN ROCHE
MEDITATION WITH THE RADIANCE SUTRAS BY LORIN ROCHE
Eat, sleep, work, play, and love – this is what bodies do.
Every day we roll through a sequence of actions necessary
to maintain life. This is the asana flow of daily life.
Our bodies are engineered out of miraculous substances
and operate with the wisdom of eternity. Meditation is
an invitation to experience our embodiment with a sense
of wonder. In the Radiance Sutras, a new version of the
Vijnana Bhairava Tantra, Shiva sings:
This body is made of earth and gold,
Sky and stars, rivers and oceans,
Masquerading as muscle and bone.
Every substance is here:
Diamonds and silver, magical elixirs,
Ambrosia that gives visions.
Herbs that nourish and heal.
The foundation of the planet,
Immortal magnetic iron,
Circulating in the blood.
Every element in you loves the others:
Earth loves rain, sky loves sun,
Sun loves the space it shines through.
Space loves everyone equally.
In meditation, luxuriate in
This deep and simple truth.
Every cell is an organ of sense
Infused with majesty.
