Love, love, love this book! This was one of my first books on my Tantric journey. I highly recommend it to anyone wanting to explore the science of Tantra and Kriya yoga. 🌌
The word "Tantra" comes from the Sanskrit words "tanoti" - to expand and "trayati"- liberation. Basically Tantra allows us to expand consciousness, to liberate us from the physical level of our being, going beyond the five senses. Tantra teaches you to explore every aspect of your consciousness. It's a sexual path that uses orgasmic energy to empower your spiritual growth. .
Many modern yoga schools frown on sexuality arguing that it distracts seekers from the goal of samadhi or enlightenment. They try to suppress and subdue sexual desire, making an ideal of celibacy... but this is only because they do not understand sexual energy and how to use it to achieve their aim. The truth is that spiritual and sexual energy are two sides of the same coin -the upward flowing of spiritual energy becomes sexual when it turns down... Tantric methods are natural, life affirming, & joyful. Every act becomes part of your spiritual practice. Tantra is sexuality in a spiritual context. ~Sunyata Saraswati & Bodhi Avinasha
