It is not possible to define tantra without getting a little mystical, because there is no cut-and-dried way to describe this dynamic science. A tantra master has to find comprehensible ways to explain to his students how tantra acts as the bridge that connects sex to the spirit, and both to the Cosmic Whole.
For the new student of tantra, it is sufficient to understand that tantra is both an art and a science which kindles our inherent sensual spirituality. It does this by throwing the light of truth and enlightenment upon our repressed misconceptions about ourselves, our sexuality and our human state. Learning tantra is the only true way of ridding ourselves of our sexual guilt or fear and breaking free of the prison of cultural or self-inflicted misconceptions and taboos.
Once this process is underway, we achieve a wholeness and completeness that cannot be attained by non-spiritual means. Of course, learning tantra holds considerable rewards for its dedicated students. An accomplished tantra teacher can teach his students to tap into their latent tantra energy reservoirs. These reservoirs invariably remained undiscovered and not utilized in most human beings, and they will spend their lives barely skimming the surface of their sexual potential…
To those who discover and learn to use their tantra energy reservoirs, there are untold dimensions of sexual pleasure in store. In fact, it can be safely stated that nobody who does not learn tantra under an expert tantra master will ever discover their fullest sexual potential. The sexual freedom that ancient tantra brings as a gift to all those who pursue it can scarcely be imagined. Envisage yourself as having the power to experience explosive, whole-body, multiple orgasms – regardless of your gender.
Tantra is a mystical path. The good news is that we all have an innate mystical dimension – the bad news is that most of us subdue and subvert this dimension by becoming overly immersed in worldly pursuits. By learning tantra, we acquaint ourselves with our mystical dimension and vastly enlarge the borders of our existence.
It is never too late to learn tantra. We are never too old or ingrained in our ways to benefit from this ancient science of love and life. When you study tantra under a qualified tantra teacher, you are being reborn into a new life of fulfillment, bliss and consciousness. Are you ready to explore the mystical side of your sexuality?
