I feel kind of bad for dragging this on again, but I have come up with more questions:
Firstly, is the point here the desire or the actual orgasm? I ask this because in that link I provided above, in the tantra section the guy is talking about using bhakti (which I believe he equates with desire, all kinds not just sexual) to further spiritual development. Is this compatible with Samael and Swami Sivananda's systems or not?
Secondly, is all you have to do is Ham Sah pranayama as described there? I mean, Samael doesn't give that much instruction and I would be appreciative if someone could help me out, being a person that does not meditate at all right now.
Thirdly and most unrelatedly, why is Samael named after a demon/Demiurge? It kind of puts me off to him, along with his lack of citations to other sources.
The point of white tantra is the elimination of desire. So that page you found is the polar opposite of what I am attempting to elucidate. This is a good example, because people of the left hand path (black tantra) and the right hand path (white tantra) use the same exact vocabulary yet they speak different things. So be careful!
Tantra that includes the orgasm uses the sexual energy to awaken the consciousness within the Inferior Worlds (The Infernio, Kliopth, Hell). Remember that awakening the consciousness is a duality, if one awakens within desire, in Hell, then they gain powers within that region, yet they are still bound by karma and they have no power over true adepts who live in the Superior Worlds. People do not understand that there is two ways to awaken, and many begin to awaken negatively and believe they are awakeningpositively just because some "para-normal" experiences occur.
If you perform the Ham Sah pranayama every day for 10 minutes you will begin to learn how to transmute the sexual energy. You can perform this for longer, for as long as you wish really. The pranayama technique is actually very simple. Perform it without thought; one should not try to transmute through the intellect because it is not the intellect that does the transformation, it is the atomic intelligence within you that is called the Divine Mother Kundalini that performs it. Just as your intellect cannot digest your food, or take the air into your blood, the same is true with the transmutation. Is this all you have to do? No, you have to utilize this transmuted energy in order to aid your creative comprehension of your self (ego). This is something that takes a lifetime to master.
You have to begin self observation and everything that goes along with it. It is too much to say here but there are a number of books Samael Aun Weor. Try reading Revolutionary Psychology or posting questions here
People have a very incipient understanding of the Logos Samael.
Samael is one of the Seven Thrones before God. The Seven Logoi are:
1. Moon - Regent Gabriel
2. Mercury - Regent Raphael
3. Venus - Regent Uriel
4. Sun - Regent Michael
5. Mars - Regent Samael
6. Jupiter - Regent Zachariel
7. Saturn - Regent Orifiel
Samael Aun Weor is the Human Soul of the Logos Samael. Samael is the Fifth of the Seven principles that palpitate within each atom of the infinite cosmos. A monad called Aun Weor self realized itself and then went even further to self realize the "Samael" within. So there is Samael the Logos and Samael Aun Weor the human soul.
If you study the Kabbalah you know that Samael is present next to Eve when she ate the fruit and thus fell. Samael is the related with the strength of Geburah, and by strength we mean sexual strength. Let us remember Samson; the hair is the key to understanding the story of Samson, who falls asleep after his hair, “his strength,” is cut off. Here in the Bible, strength is really sexual strength or chastity. So when Samson loses his hair, he loses his strength. This means that he falls psychologically asleep
when he begins to profane the sexual force; he fell to the temptations of Delilah, he fornicated with her and thus he lost his strength.
So Samael was next Eve when she ate the fruit because Samael is the sexual strength and eating the fruit is the orgasm. Samael is always vibrating in the sexual act. Samael works through the sexual act. Thus, Samael Aun Weor's doctrine is based entirely on the intelligent use of the sexual energy. Samael, which again is the fifth of the seven principles, being the (sexual) strength within each individual, is "blind" in the fact that "he" (your sexual strength that vibrates within the sphere of Geburah) will convert you into an Angel or a Demon depending upon how you use "him" (the sexual strength). Thus he is called a "blind god". Combine with with the fact that Samael Aun Weor was a fallen angel for many centuries and we find much literature referring to Samael as Satan or the Devil.
“Now the archon (ruler) who is weak has three names. The first name is Yaltabaoth, the second is Saklas (“fool”), and the third is Samael. And he is impious in his arrogance which is in him. For he said, ‘I am God and there is no other God beside me,’ for he is ignorant of his strength, the place from which he had come.”
The above quote is from the Apocryphon of John which related the Demiurge to the three primary forces which in the human body are the mind (Yaltabaoth), the emotion (Saklas) and the sex (Samael). And Samael is ignorant of his (sexual) strength, the place from which he had come because we have forgotten how to use sex the right way. In this way, the Demiurge is our own creative powers. Also realize that every Cosmo Creator is Demiurge and the creator of all good and evil (evolution and devolution), but the ignorant demiurge is the one that is within. That demiurge power is within everyone to a degree, thus we use those seven principles in the negative way to create a false creation (the ego) traps the spirit within it and that causes all the suffering in the world.
As for citations, that really is not necessary for anyone who is looking for the truth. You will find the truth inside of yourself, this is why one must awaken their consciousness in the positive manner. Let us remember H.B.P., a brilliant woman who had much compassion for humanity. She delivered works that contained thousands of citations, yet, the intellectuals reject it anyway. Ultimately nothing satisfies someone who does not search within, and really Samael Aun Weor is not too concerned with convincing the incredulous; he has no concern for believers or followers, if YOU don't know the truth than nothing else matters. The skepticism that intellectuals love is just a nice way to cover up their profound ignorance, because the skeptical intellectual knows that he can never really know the truth. The intellect knows NOTHING, and those who know nothing but the intellect consequently know nothing about these matters. The worst type of intellectual is a spiritual intellectual because this one takes the most divine things and transforms them into torpid cages of the mind in which they not only ensnare themselves, but everyone else they can recite their absurd theories to regarding god; theories, which by the way, in reality, they have never actually experienced. The intellectuals are the Pharasees in the Bible that Jesus call a generation of Vipers. Thus those who criticized H.P.B. concerning, for example, the Books of Dzyan are manifestly ignorant, because today we know that these texts came from the same or similar source of the Tibetan Kalachakra. Yet those skeptics with their theories stated these books were a figment of H.P.B.'s imagination, they called her a liar and charlatan, etc., etc., simply because they could not find a source with their limited scope (skeptic) of perception.
