Two Major Misconceptions about Tantra

Chitra Sukhu - Wednesday, March 21, 2012

1. Tantra is another name for spiritual Sex - Usually when people hear the word Tantra they think about sexual practices or rituals involving sex. In reality Tantra is a profound science. It is a precise system that employs methods like Pranayama, mantras, and meditation as well as vedic astrology, and Ayurveda to work with the energies in the universe to transform your life and transcend this plane. The predominant energies in the universe are creative, the sexual energy being the grossest manifestation of energy. If you focus on this one element of Tantra and say this is what Tantra is then you're missing the point. That's like equating yoga with only postures (yoga is so much more than that!) Yes, Tantra includes sex as well as anything that is of the world because it knows the world as creative energies that are in constant play, it allows for variations, and these variations are what sustain the world allowing it to manifest.

2. Tantra deals with magic and rituals - while Tantra encompasses these things it's not the focus of Tantra. As we know Tantra deals with the Shakti energy, the creative energy that is all pervasive. It's from this energy that we have come to be... this energy is neutral until you bring it to life through intent and purpose. So it depends on the person who is wielding this energy how he or she will choose to use it. If it is used in a way that is for self gratification or to harm others then the energy will do just that, but come back to the source with equal force, hence karma.

These two misconceptions are all most people know about Tantra, so there is a taboo, understandably, but that is because people that practice at this level are the ones that exploit these powerful energies and are personalities that want to become known, want to use Tantra at its basic level. Tantra can be used for transformation and liberation as well by using the more subtle forms of energy through the higher chakra centers; Used this way Tantra becomes pure and powerful, a way for you to master the world with all its differences and variations. Tantra accepts all that is the way that it is, bringing you into alignment with yourself and nature. In the tantric view, nothing is good or bad; it just is... when you can start to work on yourself from where you are then you are moving in the right direction. Tantra helps you to look at yourself honestly and openly and gives you techniques to start the journey now! I hope people can start to embrace this practice without the misconceptions, if you can, you will come to find an eastern science that will transform your life. I believe the world is now ready for these teachings.
