§  This page is in revision with a new welcome talk in development. Please do not overlook the talk on self-love posted below. It is best to begin there upon entering the groves.

Welcome to the Sacred Groves

The campus of Nemeta is open for exploration to all those who happen to find it. Anyone who comes to the School can access the landing pages of all 12 Courses, the 3 Vocations, plus the landing pages of 17 The Terma and the Terton and 18 Breaking Nous. By entering a username and email address, you become a registered guest who can access the units on this page (see curriculum panel below) as well as those in Course 16 on Planetary Tantra, and you can join the PT Forum.

The banyan tree with a mother trunk that spreads horizontally and roots into more trunks is the image of the Sophianic School with its branches of learning.

§ Added June 23, 2022: In keeping with the current reorganization of the material in Course 16 Planetary Tantra, visitors are advised to listen to this talk which can also be found in the unit panel on that course. Remember that PT is free and open to all registered guests on the campus of Nemeta. Good beginnings lead to good results. I advise that you begin your tour of the sacred groves by considering the issue of self-love, not to be confused with  narcissism, egocentricity, and self-importance.

Self-love is the only offering you can make to the Wisdom Goddess, because it is the only thing she does not and cannot give you in the first place.

Self-Love in Gaian Tantric Practice

A few comments on this talk may be helpful for your orientation to the structure and purpose of the Sophianic School, the modern Mystery School based on the living Gnosis today:

  • This talk explains that Tantra Mother is the Gaian rendering of Avalokiteshvara, a central figure in Mahayana Buddhism.
  • Shaktas (devotees of the Wisdom Goddess) regard Tantra Mother as the hostess who greets newcomers into Planetary Tantra. Her root names are  Vajrayogini in Sanskrit, and Dorje Phagmo in Tibetan: white diamond sow. Her term of endearment is Miss Piggy with reference — yes — to the Muppets.
  • The Shakti Cluster is a tool for practice of Gaian Tantra. All the devatas (radiant emanations of the earth, telluric frequencies) and dakinis (sky dancers or atmospheric frequencies) in the SC are dynamic powers of the Divine Mother, Gaia-Sophia. They are sensuous and material. They are not abstractions or mere personifications.
  • Tantra Mother welcomes you into Planetary Tantra and directs you to the presence in yourself of the capacity for self-love. The genuine and ingenuous capacity, not the faked or make-believe version, not the product of wishful thinking.
  • The talk explains that Kali (Devata 1 in the SC) assists you in receiving the instruction on self-love by destroying illusions, especially the illusion of compassion. It explains how to direct your presumed feelings of compassion toward others to yourself, first and foremost.
  • The talk indicates certain teachings and practices that come exclusively from Tantra Mother. When you are on her frequency, these instructions emerge spontaneously in your own mind as if you yourself are producing them. The Gnostic teacher provides the “inceptive syntax” or NLP cueing that triggers and guides this experience.
  • This talk presents intimate details about how the Aeonic Mother identifies her children, using the analogy of DNA profiling. It goes straight to the encounter with the Organic Light in telestic trance.
  • This talk also alludes to the “Mahayana makeover,” a reference to how Planetary Tantra assimilates and transforms Buddhism and renders it into a new program of “spiritual development” that unfolds on entirely new terms and surpasses the Buddhist tradition at every point. The key event in the makeover is the Maitreya Process.
  • Rhomé, pronounced, row-may, is PT slang for the human animal by racial definition. The Rhomé are the racial strains of the single species template, the Anthropos.
  • Finally, the talk uses the gaming metaphor of dealing cards, a favorite technique in PT. To be exact, the act of dealing cards goes to Kali but in this context it illustrates how Tantra Mother teaches you to play your hand in the game of life. You “play it as it lays,” but  in doing so you bring a transcendental angle — looking down —  to all events and situations. In the opening move of this game, you look down into yourself to the foundation of self-love and you play your hands with the confidence it brings to know that self-love is sovereign and inviolable.

Be ruthless in self-love.
