WHAT CAN PEOPLE HOPE TO EXPERIENCE THROUGH THE PATH OF “TANTRA”?
Tantra is a transformational path, an alchemical path. It is a life-affirmative approach. Through Tantric methods and meditations, people will be able to experience their senses and sexuality as doors to expanded states of consciousness and bliss. Tantra opens us to experiencing oneness with the whole, of being showered by grace, of union with the Divine, of Heaven on Earth. In meditation, if two meditators share their energies, love is a constant phenomenon. It does not change. It takes the quality of eternity. It becomes divine. The meeting of love and meditation is the greatest experience of life. Nityanada

It is often mentioned to not say these words all the time as they will loose their value. Value, is what we choose it to be for words as well as anything else. Sometimes, these three words are all a person needs to hear … from anyone! So many feel so alone, and have not yet found their way to knowing that we are all one – together. We belong to each other.
So lift someone’s spirit by saying I love you and then maybe they too can share the Love and pay it forward. The love inside me is the love within you. It is not outdated to say it, nor does it loose strength when said. It actually only gathers momentum when we share Love.
So as a friend, as a brother or sister, as a mother or father, aunt or uncle or grandparent, share the Love and say it.
I Love You
TANTRA LOOKS AT LIFE WITH A TOTAL VISION – NOT AN ATTITUDE
Tantra is not an attitude, because tantra looks at life with total vision. It has no attitude to look at life. It has no concepts, it is not a philosophy. It is not even a religion, it has no theology. It doesn’t believe in words, theories, or doctrines. It wants to look at life without any philosophy, without any theory, without any theology. It wants to look at life as it is, without bringing any mind in between, because that will be the distortion. The mind then will project, the mind then will mix, and then you will not be able to know that which is.
Tantra avoids mind and encounters life face to face, neither or nor thinking “This is good”? or “This is bad”?: simply facing that which is. So it is difficult to say that this is an attitude, in fact it is a no-attitude.
Tantra is a great yea-sayer as it says yes to everything. It has nothing like, ‘No’ in its vocabulary, there is no negation. It never says no to anything, because with no the fight starts, with no you become the ego. The moment you say no to anything, the ego comes already; a conflict has come in, now you are at war. Tantra loves, and loves unconditionally. It never says no to anything whatsoever, because everything is part of the whole, and everything has its own place in the whole, and the whole cannot exist without anything missing from it.
So tantra says yes unconditionally. There has never been any other vision of life which says yes without any conditions, simply yes. No disappears; from your very being. When there is no no, how can you fight? How can you be at war? You simply float. You simply merge and melt. You become one. The boundaries are there no more. No creates the boundary. No is the boundary around you. Whenever you say no, watch, immediately something closes in. Whenever you say yes, your being opens.
DIFFERENT APPROACHES TO TANTRA: LEFT & RIGHT
Tantra is sometimes divided into right and left hand. The so called “right hand Tantra” contains a series of physical and mental techniques that have very positive effects over health and well being, control of energies, harmonization of emotions, discipline and focalization of the mind. It also uses sacred geometry (yantra) and sacred words (mantra) which are tools for entering into resonance with the forces of the macrocosm.
In the “left hand” Tantric practice, the sexual re-absorption allows for the conversion and elevation of the huge sexual potential, producing rapid and beneficial transformation of the human being. This transformation can be achieved either by being sexually abstinent in conjunction with Hatha Yoga techniques or by being sexually ‘continent’ (not discharging the sexual energy, but retaining it), and over time producing a gradual elevation of consciousness until it reaches the state of supreme ecstasy or bliss. Tantra is life lived with intensity and in a superior way.
In Left-Hand Tantra sex is not practiced for the sake of sex itself as indulgence or entertainment, but as an instrument for going beyond sex, for reaching health, balance, improved couple relationships, self-control, super-normal capacities, and eventually superior states of consciousness.
Ayurvedic Tantra massage is a of massage using Ayurvedic oil which helps the sexual energy to achieve a higher state of consciousness. Skilled Tantra Massage Therapists, especially Tantric Yogis, use specific sensual touches such as lightly running fingertips along the entire body to awaken a dormant energy field within the body. When awakened, this energy field is believed to unite lovers in an ecstatic experience and to get rid of/from physical and mental trauma. Tantric Massage is the best medicine for those who suffer from depression. This, is a very ancient healing art form from the mysterious land of India.
Tantra Massage sets out to unwrinkle blocked energy throughout the body and awaken the Kundalini, a mythological energy that lies in rest at the base of the spine. When the Kundalini rises from its restful state, it spreads out along the spine and precipitates healing throughout the body.
The goal of the Tantra Massage Therapist is to awaken the seven Chakras, or energy centers, along the spine of the body in an effort to nudge the sleeping Kundalini from its rest. The Tantric Massage begins with a relaxation massage and moves along into centralized Chakra energy building techniques, then accelerates into personalized Kundalini arousal techniques.
Sexual arousal is a major emotional impact of Tantra Massage. Like other forms of massage, Tantra Massage can be very relaxing. Tantra Massage can also alleviate physical pain and emotional fear and guilt. Tantra Massage will help the people to become more fulfilled and personally empowered.
Tantra is not teaching sexuality. It is simply saying that sex can be a source of bliss, that sex is ok and normal. And once you know that bliss, you can go further because now you are grounded in reality. One is not to remain with sex forever, but you can use sex as a jumping point. That is what tantra means: You can use sex as a jumping point. Once you have known the ecstasy of sex, you can understand what mystics have been talking about – a greater orgasm, a cosmic orgasm.
In human life the sex act is the only act when you come to feel a non-duality, in which you come to feel a deep oneness where the past disappears, the future disappears and only the present moment – the only real moment – remains. So all those mystics who have really known oneness with the Divine, oneness with Existence itself, they have always used sexual terms and symbols for their experience to express it. Sex is just the beginning, not the end. But if you miss the beginning, you will miss the end also, and you cannot escape the beginning to reach the end.
Tantra says take life naturally; do not be unreal. Sex is there as a deep possibility, a great potentiality. Use it! And what is wrong in being happy in it when used?
Tantra says be real, be authentic to yourself. Your happiness is not a bad thing, it is good. It is not a sin! Only sadness is a sin. Only to be miserable is a sin. To be happy is a virtue because a happy person will not create unhappiness for others. Only a happy person can be a ground for others′ happiness.
Tantra is neither moral nor immoral, it is basically a science. It looks at you, at what you are. It means that tantra is not trying to transform you, but it actually does transform you through reality. Science first tries to know what is real – what reality is, what the real is. Once the real is known it can be transformed.
Tantra is science. Tantra says first know what the reality is, what man is, and don′t create values and don′t create ideals right now: first know what is. Do not think of the “ought“, just think of the “is.” Once the “what is” is known, then you change it. Then you have the secret.
Once you know that secret you can transcend it because, really, in a deep sexual orgasm it is not sex which gives you bliss, it is something else. Sex is just a situation. Something else is giving you the euphoria, the ecstasy.
That something else can be divided into three elements. But when I speak about those elements, do not think that you can understand them just from my words. They must become part of your experience. As concepts they are useless. Because of three basic elements in sex you come to a blissful moment.
First, timelessness: you transcend time completely. There is no time. You forget time completely; time ceases for you. Not that time ceases, it ceases for you; you are not in it. There is no past, no future. In this very moment, here and now, the whole existence is concentrated. This moment becomes the only real moment. If you can make this moment the only real moment without sex, then there is no need of sex. Through meditation, it happens.
Second, in sex for the first time you lose your ego, you become egoless. So all those who are very much egoistic, they are all always against sex, because in sex they have to lose their egos. You are not, nor is there the other. You and your beloved are both lost into something else. A new reality evolves; a new unit comes into existence in which the old two are lost – completely lost. The ego is afraid. You are no more there. If without sex you can come to a moment when you are not, then there is no need of it.
And thirdly, in sex you are natural for the first time. The unreal is lost, the faces, the facades are lost; the society, the culture, the civilization, is lost. You are a part of nature. As trees are, as animals are, as stars are, you are a part of nature. You are in a greater something – the cosmos. You are floating in it – being taken by the current.
Ignorance cannot help you towards transcendence, it can only help you towards hypocrisy.
Through Tantra, you can enhance your intimacy. Simply follow, the following
a) Find time to talk with your partner especially before ‘LOVE MAKING’ . This talk is known as “Sallapam’ in tantra which creates a mood of happiness with romance.
b) Look at each other in the eyes and gently touch your partner’s body slowly where ever you love.
c) Gently chew on the lips and exchange the breath with each other to connect the Prana (Life force energy)
d) Explore each other’s body and surrender oneself
e) Kiss the whole body of the woman from feet to tip and through the back to toe touching all the sensual points in the body. This is known as Apadachuda Chumpana’
f) Repeat this process and gently lick the special places of the body of your partner where ever you love.
g) Next round gently do the oral(Sucking) where the woman should imagine her vagina as a lotus and offering it to siva(male), and siva touches it with the fullest sanctity.
h) At this point the female also get the mood to react at the same way.
I) Control the breath in its low pace and always share your look with total love to your partner.
j) Shed your Ego fully and surrender to each other.
k) Orgasm is not our goal, so always try to enhance the period by adopting different postures.
l) Finally cuddle with your partner and make calm for each other and exchange the love.
Any couples or Spiritual partners doing the above, will never get separated and their love will be deep rooted, connected soul to soul. Their mind will become the dwelling place of happiness and peace. Their next generation, will become the angels of love.
