“Become a thorn in the side of Reality until it reveals itself, and refuse to accept less than everything; refuse to give less than everything.”
- Shiva Kaal Ugranand


“Overall, the Tantric path is optimistic when regarding any attachment or energy pattern. This is because it is all regarded just as energy or potentially liberated energy. We, in our ignorance and attachment, place the "story" on the energy. The path doesn't ask people to become "other" then what they are (in "real" terms), and the liberated energy (no matter how it's defined) becomes the fuel on the path.”
- Shiva Kaal Ugranand


“If the realization of ones true nature is not apparent, then one may not be able to do anything about it directly, as any contrived "force" may only perpetuate ego. What one can do is relax, open, and surrender. One has to relax the grip on self, open to the possibility that there is something greater, and surrender the need to always know. Ones true nature is the freedom that people are looking for, and this is the cosmic joke.”
- Shiva Kaal Ugranand


“Many Vira sadhanas are such because the sadhak is making a ruthless gesture toward power.
The gesture is ruthless not against others, but rather one makes a naked and dispassionate move of profound association.”
- Shiva Kaal Ugranand


“The Tantric makes the discontinuous force continuous, and this is the ground of the Ishta. Like the import that death represents, the Ishta is only meaningful (in Tantra) when it is very real and deeply related to aspects viewed in ones own Being. This "relating" (and also not avoiding) brings spirituality home, and it is ruthlessly expresses the essence of the path.”
- Shiva Kaal Ugranand


“To engage fearlessly in this life is to engage with humor. One cannot engage with the magnitude of Reality without coming to humor, nor can one just engaged with that vastness without realizing the humor of peoples hang ups and pettiness (including their "own" when it presents). To move on this earth in fearless humor is to move with suppleness and skill. To embody the Ishta Devata is to become fearless and to engage with the pitha of life expression is humor. To succeed in the Vidya one must be deadly serious, and to be deadly serious one must have a sense of humor. The humor of Tantrics has an edge like a razor blade, and the fearless demonstration of it is a display of innate victory.”
- Shiva Kaal Ugranand


“To realize a perfection of "No Problem", one needs to be a devotee of what is (rather than what should be). The state of "problem" is a full stop with many tangents of entanglement, while "no problem" is an open door with infinite possibilities of subtle realization and depth.”
- Shiva Kaal Ugranand


“The Kaula moves and acts for the benefit and liberation of All and it is only when ones heart breaks open in a magnanimous gesture of love
and compassion that the True vira bhava can be understood.”
- Shiva Kaal Ugranand


“Surrender is really such a deep and beautiful subtle art. It includes the openness to connect, the willingness to see, and the humility to conform. In surrender, one becomes aware in such delicate and profound ways of where there is accord and where the “knots” lie. One falls into the knowledge that sharpens accord and falls into the light of love that melts knots.”
- Shiva Kaal Ugranand


“Many of the aims of the Guru are conveyed without words and the knowledge comes in a osmosis of organic relation and relating.”
- Shiva Kaal Ugranand


“Life is going to provide some blows, and I strongly suggest that one take those blows nakedly. I like the word "blow" because when one openly encounters life, it can indeed feel like a punch to the gut. The difficult situations that arise are great opportunities to meet energy in a raw state. However, the impulse is usually one of contraction, and this contraction creates "knots". The contraction (and thus knots) are reinforced by the rationalizations that provide further defense for the hit. Taking the "hit" fully is a profound dharma which continually opens and reveals. The immediate pain can even transmute in the moment to bliss when the energy is accepted without story or defense.”
- Shiva Kaal Ugranand


“One should never come out of sadhana the same being that they went into it. There is always more to give of yourself and there is always a greater depth.”
- Shiva Kaal Ugranand


“Love is irresistible and is the easiest path. Most are not open enough to be truly touched by unconditional love, so they can’t express real love. But why not just see, as an experiment, to just open up and be willing to experience. And in that openness challenge the Guru. One should always challenge Guru from heart, and push the depths. One can see how heart breaking a love can be. How intense the fire can get. I challenge you....but you must meet in the challenge.”
- Shiva Kaal Ugranand


“When one becomes their spirituality than it is not self conscious and when one boxes themselves into a spiritual model and self consciously perpetuates it, then it often doesn’t allow for real humility. Real humility is the pure desire to encounter Reality and the willingness to go, give, or see anything. It is a willingness to encounter Reality even if one doesn’t like what it is.”
- Shiva Kaal Ugranand

“The Tantric Guru is a “live wire”, an ultimate friend, a dangerous friend, a mirror and an irritant. The Tantric Guru is a tiger that endeavors to devour you,
and the path is said to be like walking on a razor blade.”
- Shiva Kaal Ugranand


“The energy of the khepa is vibrant with potentials and possibilities, but the encounter takes a humility which is entirely willing to see. This “seeing” cannot be on “your terms”, as the “doctrine” of openness is usually acceptable only on a limited basis. So “this seems nice…I will be open…this seems good, I’ll surrender to that” approach is one of terms dictated by wholly by what the individual deems acceptable. But one can only move so far this way and at its greatest it will only be a validating process for “strategies” of openness. To go beyond this, one must have an openness that is without terms, strategies, and “exit clauses".”
- Shiva Kaal Ugranand
