Tantra is an endeavor of the individual to expand both the Mind and the Heart. Tantra is to expand. It is an expansion and liberation of the consciousness. A mechanism for transformation. It is a Technique to combine physical with the vibration and frequency. The study of the macrocosm through the study of the microcosm. Tantra draws on all sciences- Physics, Chemistry, Psychology, Mathematics, Geometry, Astronomy, Astrology, Physiology, Ayurveda. To provide a practical means of separating and categorizing the different areas of human knowledge. Tantra studies the tree of life itself ,instead of limiting itself to any single branch of the tree. This tree is a microcosm a great organization of the diverted elements linked together by a unifying law ( Dharma ) that is inherent in their very nature.
Tantra seeks to understand this law. It aims to expand awareness in all states of consciousness, whether waking state, dream state or sleep state. To accomplish this we need a kind of “reprograming” of our human computer. Our birth in particular place and time gives us a primary programming, influenced by heredity and environment. If we are content with the results and live our lives without too many problems, then we will see no need for change. But when we experience great difficulties in life or begin to seek something beyond our limited “program” then we need a way to alter it. Tantra provides the methodology and the tools for this work. Tantra teaches us to identify the various factors that influence our thoughts and feelings and to transcend the obstacles to our evolution arising from ignorance, intolerance, attachment to our animal nature and selfishness. By refining our thoughts and feelings by means of tantra yoga practices. We learn to create peace, harmony and order and within ourselves. Tantra thus promotes a one-pointedness and centeredness that helps us to free the consciousness from limitation.
The universe is a product of two opposites: The static principle ( Rest, Shaktiman, Powerholder, Shiva) and the dynamic principle ( Movement, Energy, Power, Creativity, Shakti) The external part of everything is the creative aspect, and inside every dynamic creation is the static aspect. The play of shakti has no beginning or end. Although it is restless, The energy moves in an orderly cycle, alternating periods of motion and rest. Energy undergoes many changes, gets distorted and then it reorganizes itself during the period of rest. Thus a continuous process of creation, preservation and destruction reorganisation and recreation goes on forever. Tantra believes that as long as the phenomenal world exists. It is the universal Mother who is the creator, preserver and destroyer.
Tantra offers practical tools for reprogramming the mind and our desires. By means of physical ritual cleaning, breathing exercises ( Pranayama) contemplation, visualization, Repitition of sacred words ( Mantra Japa), Tantra Yoga helps to unfold our divine nature.
Tantra means creating what you want. Mind Body Soul unification. It essentially focused on creating a mind higher than oneself, making an intelligence beyond its present capabilities to become available. Learning to use the Body, Mind and Energies as just instruments of life, so that it becomes available to a much higher possibility.
