An Explanation of Tantra

From the book Spiritual Sex – The Many Meanings of Tantra, by Nik Dougles:

Because Tantra is a mystical subject, it is nearly impossible to define. Even eminent scholars have had a hard time explaining what Tantra actually is. The different explanations of Tantra indicate its multifaceted nature. Tantra is a spiritual science, which means it is also mystical in its interconnectedness; the holistic wisdom link between ourselves, and the universe we inhabit.

By embracing Tantra, we become more “real,” more “complete.” How? By recognizing and stimulating our inherent sensual spirituality, we discover parts of ourselves that have remained asleep or have been repressed. With Tantra, an energy is released that is evolutionary and “upwardly motivated.” We can learn to use this energy for pleasure, for achieving our worldly goals, and for aiding our spiritual evolution.

Familiarity with Tantra can help a person to enjoy life to the fullest. It can help do away with guilt or fear, break down self-imposed or limiting cultural boundaries, and guide us in our search for solutions. Tantra teaches us to become familiar with our mystical nature, and when we do so, our boundaries expand. We enter into new domains of awareness. We become empowered, more fulfilled, and more perfect.

Traditional dictionary definitions of Tantra are revealing. A Sanskrit word, Tantra is sometimes translated as “leading principle, essential part, model, system, framework, doctrine, rule, theory, scientific work,” also as “order, chief part, rule, authority, science, mystic works, magical formulas, means, expedient, stratagem, medicine.” Finally, a Tantra is sometimes defined as “a type of mystical teaching set out mostly in the form of dialogs between a cosmic couple. Intimate insightful dialogs, between God and Goddess, Shiva and Shakti, the male and female Tantric adepts, were at times written down and became known as Tantras. Naturally, these dialogs, being intimate, included sexual secrets as well as many other fascinating topics.

    God in human form required …

    There are real devotees who have real love towards God & want to see, touch, talk with & live with God for no selfish advantage, either in this world or in upper world. God, who has infinite kindness & infinite love, cannot reject such real love.

    God is omnipotent & can satisfy the desire of such real devotees & real devotees are crying for the fortune of His vision, touch, conversation & living with God. God is capable & the devotees deserve. Nobody can put his finger between these two.

    To satisfy the real devotees, God comes in human form & all these four fortunes are blessed upon the real devotees. If God comes in the form of space or energy, which is formless or He comes in the form of statues, He cannot grant these fortunes.

    He can talk, touch & live with the devotees only when He comes in the human form. Only the human body can do such things as per the laws of nature. Nature is His creation & the laws of nature are the rules of His own administration. He will not violate these rules except in the case of inevitable emergency. Why should He use His special power (Maya) & talk, touch, or live with you in the form of space, energy or statues? When the purpose is served through normal routine (following laws of nature), why are you so rigid in insisting on an abnormal way?

    God need not pay any heed to foolish rigid behaviour of some human beings. Infact they want to pray to formless God or God in the form of statue, only for the sake of their selfish convenience. You can offer food to formless God or a statue & then you can eat entire food. You are satisfied as if you have given meals to God & at the same time you have not lost even a grain of rice. There are many inconvenient losses & troubles with human form of God. But real devotees are not worried about such loss & are in fact happy to lose anything if God can enjoy by that. They feel happy when God eats the offered food.

      With time we can each become more like God/Goddess. Compassion, agape, love, caring, lending a helping hand – all go toward recreating a God-like person – a Bodhisattva in each of us.

    Another American yacking away about a subject she has a vague understanding of to peddle her sexual/spiritual panaceas to a tribe of fools. Tantric goddess, my foot!

    Hey Suzzie,

    this is Wow…, really comprehensive blog on Tantra and Sexuality.
    I want to add up some more..

    Tantra helps you to become aware of your energy body, which extends beyond the physical body. There are seven energy centers in the body called chakras.

    They are located in the area of the genitals, lower belly, below the diaphragm, the heart, the throat, just above and between the eye brows and near the top of the head.
    With practice you can learn to move ecstatic energy through your chakras.
    Eventually, you can discover how to share this experience with another person and experience orgasmic energy with or without an erection. This will really boost mens health in the bed like never before..
    This journey begins with learning the 3 Keys of Sky Dancing Tantra.

    We can keep going further, but I want lets stop here for now..

    Thank again,

  7. Coitus says:

    Tantric sex is about directing sexual energy to one another by focusing on inhaling and exhaling together.

  8. Call us says:

    When you first see the picture, you figure out yourself in the history of tantric. Tantric means a lot of self education, and moral consciousness. No one who is not trainned, cant understand this at the normal level of understanding. Pushing up the limits, is a very important and difficult factor and tantric along with yoga are two hard conceptions hard to be understandood easy. The culture, means a good body trainning, the 5 ones actually..
