Right Hand path/Left Hand path is a classification devised to separate "more
traditional and more common techniques" (RHP), from other, non-comformist
techniques (LHP). Right Hand path techniques comply with yama/niyama
principles of yoga - Left Hand path not necessarily. It is usually said that
Right Hand path techniques deal with most of the parts of human experience,
and that the Left Hand path techniques deal only with the most problematic
areas (sex and fear). Right Hand path techniques (all kinds of yoga, par
example) work on sex and fear, too, but in a more subtle way, through
changing the whole of the being. Left Hand path techniques work on the
problematic fields AND use the energy contained there for much faster
changing of the being. Simply put, yogi attains enlightenment using
traditional techniques, he becomes fearless and his raw sexuality purifies
into sensuality and sensibility (along the way), while tantrika attains
enlightenment AFTER overcoming raw sexuality (and making it a device) and
attaining fearlessness. Left Hand path is thus a kind of a shortcut, but
it's very narrow and slippery - it shouldn't be practised by someone
completely new to tantra. Most of the people who practice tantra (or what
they call tantra) in the West, as far as I know, are perfect examples of
deadly peril of the Left Hand path - they are obsessed with technicalities,
their pleasure, philosophising, while completely loosing track of the aim.
They just become more and more spiritually dead every day. It's interesting
that none of them ever tried to work with fear, and it's a traditional field
of Left Hand path.


PS: I mentioned yama and niyama, so I will explain them shortly

YAMA = self-restraints



Asteya= honesty

Brahmacharya=sexual control

Aparigraha = non-posessivness

NIYAMA = observances

Shaucha = purity

Santosha = contentness

Tapas = austerity

Shwadyaya = self-study

Ishwara Pranidhana=self surrender (litterally "surrender to the Supreme")

I tried to give the translation with as little interpretation as possible -
after all, Patanjali described these, my explanation work only for me
