Planetary Tantra

Consistent with my wishes, as expressed from the initial moment of the Terma of Gaia Awakening, Planetary Tantra is free. I have highlighted this message on the home page of where I announce the migration of all content in that site to Nemeta:

PT PROGRESS REPORT: I have before me a printout of a list of 41 units currently found in the PT Course 16 curriculum panel. A unit is a electronic  TEXT file sometimes including audio commentary or reading (TALK)… (continued on The Menhir)


Course 16 on Planetary Tantra comprises a massive array of material, some of it new, much of it taken from and elsewhere, but here organized, correctly (as far as humanly possible), upgraded, and revised. It will take some time to pull this enchilada together. The Manual of Planetary Tantra has been long in the works… set to come out as a hard copy artifact from Terma Publishing.  I will not name a particular deadline but I do wish that by springtime 2019 to have Course 16 in reasonable order.

Portrait of Jigme Lingpa, the pre-eminent Nyingma terton who received the Longchen Nyingthig.

The source cited here contains basic facts about the Nyingma JL that I expect every serious practitioner of PT to know. Keeping with Nemeta policy, I don’t provide an active URL hyperlink,  but merely point toward one. Do the homework as it suits your time and pleases you.

It might be regarded as a trivial coincidence that the Tibetan terton has the same initials as yours truly. Then again, Jigma Lingpa was born in 1730 and received the Longchen Nyingthig in 1758, although it was not made available in printed form until 1794, thirty six years later. Note that those dates cluster tightly into the moment “around 1740” when the Aeon Sophia began to go lucid in the dreaming emanation (Sanskirt shristi-kalpana) by which she materializes and sustains the world-event on earth, her planetary dream body. I knew that date instantaneously, without reflection or calculation, upon receiving the Terma.  I knew also the fugue of streaming personae or oneiric identities that she assumed from that moment all the way to becoming Vajravilasi, “flirtatious lightning” at the inception of the Terma.

These are wild claims, I know. And their implications are even wilder. For instance, what if I told you that the genre of the novel arose at that exact time, the mid-1700s, as a material eruption of human imagination that Sophia herself provoked, so that the demonstration of the NPU (novelistic description, characterization) by human authors enabled the Aeon to secure her first attention in those dreaming identities. In short, the novel genre gave her the traction required to deploy her dreaming power directly into the human mind. She needed human-created fiction to bring her presence to human attention. If you get this, I can assure you, you will never tire of getting it, and there is no end to the elaborations to be entertained of this singular transcendent event.

Ten-year Retrospective on the Terma of Gaia Awakening

“Some days I don’t know whether to laugh or cry, so I do both.”



As explained in Navigating Nemeta, you SCROLL DOWN the Course landing page (where you are right now) to find summary previews of the completed Blocks. SCROLL DOWN FURTHER to the curriculum panel to access those Blocks, one unit at a time. The procedure is more or less the same with Course 16. Note however one special case: the units in Block 103, Gallery of the Devatas, are numbered in accord with the traditional sequence of nodes in the Shakti Cluster.
