Episode Info:

Welcome to the sixth episode of The Freedom Place podcast! This is a platform for distributing interviews with and teachings of American-born sage Traktung Khepa.

In this extraordinary interview, t.k. talks about the pre-preliminaries of Tantric practice and the way to approach the considerations that are foundational to an esoteric path. He stresses over and over how not contemplating these considerations deeply enough to break through the inertia of habits of daily life often causes issues for practitioners later on the path. What is being discussed here is an alchemical contemplation that engages the intellect, emotions, and conduct, in that order, to truly understand the object of contemplation. If one were to truly contemplate the considerations of precious human birth, impermanence, the law of cause and effect, and that delusion will not end until one consciously puts an end to it, then, theoretically, most obstructions and hindrances to practice and realization would be cut through like a hot knife through butter. t.k. also expresses how the masters and adepts of every esoteric tradition recognize this form of contemplation as the starting point of the path.
