Mahakapalika course conducted by Kaulantak Peeth
This course was organised by the 'Kaulantak Peeth' under the guidance of Mahasiddha Ishaputra, for the sole purpose of educating spiritual seekers about the tradition of Kapalika and also dispelling the various myths and taboos related to it.
A seven day ‘Mahakapalika Course’ was held at Satara, Maharastra from 23-29th June, 2019. This course marked the end of all hegemony of fake tantric who loot people in the name of tantra. This course was organised by the ‘Kaulantak Peeth’ under the guidance of Mahasiddha Ishaputra, for the sole purpose of educating spiritual seekers about the tradition of Kapalika and also dispelling the various myths and taboos related to it.
While the rain fell from the clouds to the soil of ‘Sirgaon’, a new atmosphere had begun in the ‘Kaulantak Peeth’ tradition to dispel all the myths and taboos related to Kapalika. The Peeth tried its best to educate the spiritual seekers about the authentic traditions and lineage of Kapalika tantra.
The seven days course might have been incidentally and purposefully conducted at ‘Shirgaon’ or it might have been a great coincidence. Based on the information provided by the organisation, they informed us that ‘Kapalika’ means ‘one who perfects the brain’. It was a divine coincidence because the location name was ‘Shirgaon’ which literally translates to ‘head’ and ‘village’ or ‘the head village’. The course and the location were also a perfect match for each other.
We had inspected the venue and we also had the opportunity to talk to few participants. They all looked excited and they opined that they felt very energised while at the course. They further told us that the Peeth’s way of encouraging them to open themselves had a very psychological effect in them. They felt positive rush flowing inside them that they started to be more optimistic and hopeful about everything related to them. We also gathered some testimony.
Omkar Bhairava from Madhya Pradesh had all praises for the course. He opined that the course broke all his negativities related to life, society, social condition and mainly the preconceived notions of him against the ‘Kapalika sect’.
Manju Nath Bhairava who is a painter by profession from Karnataka told us that the ‘Mahakaplika course’ provided him inner clarity to become more expressive in his paintings.
When we asked the Peeth, if there were any such vibrant courses in the pipeline, the Peeth informed us that within the next quarter of a year, there will be two more course on yoga and other various topics. Till then, Sirgaon looks to be further soaked in rain with no signs of rain slowing down.
