What is Tantra?
There are so many definitions of Tantra!
My understanding of Tantra is based on:
Intuitive Understandings of the Dance of Life that have come to me in deep meditation
Studying and Practicing with Awakened Beings,
Exploring, Playing and Practicing with fellows on the Tantric Path
Study and Reflection of the Tantric Classic Texts
Study, Practice and Reflection on Modern Tantra (called Neo-Tantra by Scholars)
After all that! what I have come to is that Tantra is a spiritual/healing path that is based on :
awakening and working with the primal Life Energy (called Kundalini in Indian Thought)
often entails working with 7 energy centers (chakras)
With many possible goals- such as
Siddhahood/Buddhahood- Literally becoming a "super being"
Liberation/Enlightenment- Bringing an END to ALL suffering
Experiencing Life as on ongoing Romance/Love Making Experience
Healing of emotional, mental, energetic blockages/imbalances
Experiencing Sex as a Sacred Act- feeling connection to God/The Divine/The Sacred through and during sex
Deepening of Love
Feeling more connected to one's partner during sexual activity
Personal Growth/Evolution on many levels
Stronger and more intense Orgasms (as well as the capacity for men to control ejaculation)
