What is Tantra?
The Tantras are the most excellent of all shastras.
Tantra is an eminent science having thousands of principles. In fact, it is the system of aur life and a science of practice and practical knowledge. Through Tantra, we can attain superb powers by attracting and deriving the divine faculties pervading the entire cosmos. The aspirant of Tantra makes his internal capacity sharp and intensely forceful just like a magnet. This science is the process of activating the various dormant vital glands and chakras of the astral form, present inside the human body. It makes us aware of the truth that a person can get liberation from his own subjugation, can free himself from his body and expands his faculties infinitely.
Tantra is the process of intensification of our inner potentialities so that we can command this atomic arrangement which in other words is known as ‘Siddhi’. The flow of energy is going on in the environment and when your own inner energy becomes capable of influencing the external ones, nothing will remain impossible for you and this is the science of Tantra in which the aspirant’s wish is first and foremost.
Tantra is derived from the two Sanskrit words – Tanoti, meaning to expand, the knowledge concerning Tattva ( Truth or Brahman) & Trayate, meaning to liberate. It is the Hindu science of expanding and liberating the soul. It encompasses almost all the spiritual practices of the Hindus – like Pooja, Stotra, Mantra, Yantra, Yoga, Meditation etc.
Tantra is the way to spiritual freedom and love. Tantra is a path that you follow. It will bring you closer to yourself and the world. The spiritual art of love of connecting spirit and soul. It is experiencing love through the beauty of the earth and all existence. It is about acceptance, rather than denial. It also embraces compassion about truth within unconditional love. By Tantra, you will have more pleasure in life and in all his aspects. In the growth process, you detect the love in yourself and in your heart.
Tantra purifies your heart, so that you can feel one with everything around you. There is no opposition between you and the reality; you are part from it. Tantra teaches you to accept yourself as you really are. Pure Tantra provides ritual or practice, done for the practice not the intent, to focus the intellect.
“Although a man may be book learned, if he does not apply in his behavior what he knows, he is as a blind man, who even with a lamp in his hand cannot see the road.”
This is the true tantra , a joining of the vajra-power of love with the skilful means that acts like a fruitful womb to make the intent and the inmost spirit or that love manifest in the Vital Sea of the Blood of Life.
Tibetan Tantra is the language of “Divine Lineage” lies within us and we must simply desire to realize it enough to put it first in our value systems and then allow it to germinate and blossom.
Tantra can be many things. It can be a way to rekindle love and passion in a long-term relationship. It can also be a mystical way to the spiritual growth and enlightenment or it can be just a way to the better and more fulfilling sexual life. Tantra is totally open and free. You can do it on your own way, you can follow your own heart, and for you that way will be the right way.
Tantra wants you t be living. It’s about freedom; you lose nothing by trying it. but if you gain only one moment of total freedom, that is more than sufficient to compensate yourself, A long life as a slave under your present mind is worthless. It asks to have courage and bravery to be in the world of tantra, it’s an adventure of pure love and joy.
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, more fulfilled and more perfect.
Tantra includes techniques that can affect your whole way of life. By harnessing your sexual energy and directing it towards areas of the body or mind, you can boost energy and clear blockages. Tantric practice also means treating your body and your partner’s body as sacred. Sexual ecstasy is seen as a divine feeling and love making as an art that involves special skills. Tantra has been well tested over thousands of years, not in worldly laboratories but in the laboratories of the human body, by Yogi Scientists and Tibetan Lamas who were not driven by commerce but by the earnest desire for spiritual knowledge and liberation.
