Tantra Is Liberation From Fear

Modern man is afraid. He is afraid of his own desires, and of the religious priests and moral policemen who say his desires are evil. The whole issue of human sexuality has been warped and manipulated through the ages to put man – and woman – into a state of fear. Tantra is the antithesis of this unnatural fear psychosis.


The origin of this fear is not hard to trace. Sex and sexuality have been tightly regimented since the Christian church got into the act, which was around the 4th Century. It was at approximately this time that human physical intimacy was first portrayed as a ‘sin’. All sorts of guilt complexes followed – complexes which a tantra teacher has to eliminate first before he can hope to help an aspiring seeker to the present day.

The Hindu Upanishads are very specific on this topic. The Chandogya Upanishad states very clearly that only where ecstasy exists can there be any sort of creation. Various other Hindu scriptures also indicate that sex and sexuality were never looked down upon, considered sin or in any way regulated in ancient India. However, today India has joined the so-called Global Village. It has adopted many of the religious beliefs, styles and customs of the West.

As a result, the very country in which the science of ancient tantra was born and fostered has become as repressed as the West. We have forgotten that physical intimacy is at the very more info

core of creation – that it is the foundation stone of the survival of our species. How can anything creative be profane? How can it be considered as sin?

As a tantra teacher, my first and foremost mission is to rid my students of their age-old fear of their own sexuality. They come to understand that there is no evil in desiring physical intimacy. Only then will they begin to grasp the concept of tantric worship and the divinity of the Shiva-Shakti union.

This can be achieved by gradual de-conditioning of the mind from the guilt complexes imposed upon modern men and women. The process involves exposure to ancient tantra lore and the practice of tantric rituals that re-join the students to their natural state. In this state, there is no fear. There is only freedom of thought and action, tempered with a mature sense of responsibility about how this freedom must be utilized.

The result of learning tantra under a qualified tantric master is the rebirth of ecstasy in relationships. Sin, as a concept, ceases to exist. In its place comes a worshipful attitude towards all things that are joyful, intimate and natural to all human beings. Heed the invitation, because it is not natural to live in fear of the very desires that have created you and everyone you know.

Should You Use Performance Enhancement Drugs During Tantra Sex?

The issue of Viagra use in context with tantra sex is one which crops up in most of my initial tantra lessons with new students. This is not surprising. It would appear that most men above 40 (and often much younger ones) have turned to Viagra or its equivalents in order to enhance libido and sexual performance.

Also, most couples seeking out a tantra teacher are unaware of the fact that the tantric arts are not just about sex. Such discussions are therefore inevitable.

As a tantra teacher, I do not take a moralistic stance on sexual performance enhancement drugs and aphrodisiacs. Suffice it to say that once you have progressed sufficiently in your tantra instructions, you will find them unnecessary.

This may not sound realistic, since many men depend almost exclusively on these drugs when it comes to sexual performance. However, the fact is that students of ancient tantra simply have no need for such ‘modern’ pharmaceutical interventions. To understand how this is possible, it is important to understand why drugs such as Viagra are being used in the first place.

Most of the time, there are no physical justifications for their use. Most men use these drugs because of psychological underpinnings. They believe that they cannot ‘rise to the occasion’ unless they avail of such artificial boosters.

Also, they have found that as long as sexual desire exists, they are able to use these performance-enhancing drugs regardless of who their partners are, or how they feel about them. However, the fact is that as long as there is a sufficient level of bonding, cherishing and trust between two physically healthy partners, no such interventions are required at all.

Such a level of love and trust can only exist between a man and woman who have learned to connect to each other at a spiritual level – a worshipful level.

Tantra sex takes place in a worshipful setting of mutual reverence and connectedness. Once a couple has learned to achieve these with the help of a genuine tantric master, all inhibitions and feelings of ineptness and inadequacy fall away. Love now exists in its natural state, and at a much higher level than ever before. Moreover, the regular practice of tantra meditation and tantric exercises hone body and mind to a hitherto unthought-of level of fitness.

I will not denounce the use of drugs such as sildenafil or tadalafil by men who have never been introduced to the tantric way of life. However, I assure them that once they integrate the precepts and practices of ancient tantra into their lives, they will never need such artificial help again.

Tantra Sexuality Versus Religious Dogma

Posted under Spirituality, Tantra, Tantra online guide, Tantra Sex, Tantra Teacher and Tantric Sex by Subhojit Dasgupta on February 18th, 2013 8:50 am

The tantra viewpoint on sex has always been at odds with the aggressively marketed religions of the world. There is good reason for this. The fact is that most religions of the world require their followers to subdue their natural desires. Ancient tantra advocates awareness and acceptance of one’s desires, and the fulfilling of those desires in a spiritual and wholesome manner.


As a tantra teacher, I will readily admit that the prohibitive stance that the world’s religions take can have some benefits. For instance, the Catholic Christian faith considers gluttony a sin. We all know the dangers of overeating. It also advocates single-partner sex, which is definitely advisable in a day and age where AIDS has become a serious problem. Here are clear instances where religion can do some good by wielding the ‘fear the wrath of God’ stick. But unfortunately, it does not end there.

The ‘fear of God’ is not based on awareness of the natural consequences of over-indulgence. As the term itself implies, it is based on fear. This fear is induced in order to elicit unquestioning obedience to the ‘Laws of God’, which human priesthoods enforce without being too sure themselves from where these laws actually originated.

Tantra advocates understanding of the human condition, and the balanced fulfillment of natural desires. There are no laws or rules. Everything is based on knowledge and scientific facts.

In any case, sex and sexuality have always been subject to a lot of religious sanctions and dogma. There are various reasons for this. One is that most religions of the world are male-dominated, and sexual insecurity is a real issue for almost all men to some degree or the other.

For instance, the fact that man is capable of only one orgasm within a certain period of time while women are capable of multiple orgasms has been the source of a lot of performance anxiety. Throughout the ages, men have feared the woman’s sexuality because they feel they cannot match it. No matter how much we appear to have evolved as a race, it is a fact that man still bases his innate sense of self on his ability to perform sexually.

The fear of woman’s sexuality has been so great that certain countries have been practicing female circumcision. Though they cite various religious justifications for this, the fact is that this practice is nothing but a means for man to re-establish his pre-eminence at the top of the gender heap.

If woman cannot experience sexual pleasure, she will never know if her man matches the ‘standard’ of virility or not. It is way for man to relieve himself of his chronic sexual performance anxiety.

In tantra, human sexuality is examined closely and understood in all its manifestations. There is no right or wrong, virtuous or sinful, good or bad. There is simply acceptance of the truth of human sexuality. If you are a victim of religious misconceptions about sex, you are an unfulfilled, insecure and fearful person.

Ancient tantra is a spiritual path that lets you shed your fear and inhibitions, understand and accept your natural desires and meet them in a natural, fulfilling manner.
