THE MEANING OF TANTRIC SEX

Tantric sex is the ancient key to unbelievable sexual pleasure and psychic power, attained through a set of very special sexual rituals practiced by the "Hindu Cult Ecstasy." It is a kind of "sexual magic" which brings pleasure, power, energy, and control.
            Though the rituals have existed for thousands of years, they have been virtually unknown in the Western World.
            They can enable you to reach indescribable new heights of sexual pleasure and at the same time tap your sexual energy for creative use in other areas of your life.
            If took thousands of years for modern psychology to discover what the Tantric Masters have known all along: all animals, including man, are at their most intense state of conscious and subconscious concentration during sexual involvement. Through its rituals, Tantra teaches you to carry this intense concentration into all areas of your life.
            The rituals will make it possible for you to enjoy sex more often, for longer periods of greater pleasure than you have ever known before. And the more frequently you have sex, the more quickly and powerfully your sexual energy will regenerate itself.
            The word Tantra is the Sanskrit word meaning "the essence." It is derived from the verb tanatori, "to weave"; hence the derivation Tantra, "the warp or essence of that which is woven."
            From the beginning, Tantric teachings passed from one generation to the next in the unwritten form of the rituals themselves, then later through writings known simply as "Tantras." The Tantras were written in Sanskrit and are composed of dialogues between Shiva, the personification of male power, and Shakti, the personification of female power. In these most basic texts, Shiva, discourses on the Tantric origins of the universe, rituals, disciplines, and the esoteric doctrines which view the changing, visible world and universe as a "creative pleasure" of the Divine Mother, Kali; and the necessity of a ritualistic discipline to lead to the realization of the essential oneness of the self, the visible world, and the godhead.
            Basically Tantra seeks to move you back to your own origins to help you reach your own roots of identity. Tantra would have you "experience the truth that is yourself" by following specific rituals which enable you to know yourself in a manner you have never experienced before. You do this through intense effort: physical, intellectual, emotional and sexual.
            In uncovering certain truths about yourself, you learn the truths of the world, the universe, and the psychic forces of enlightenment. This will happen only through the experience of Tantra, not through reading about it. To be understood, the secrets and psychic magic of Tantra must be experienced through practicing the rituals. They cannot be comprehended solely on an intellectual level.
            Tantra teaches you to use to your advantage the energy and power that most humans consider wasted in the pursuit of pleasure. Your pleasure, unlike any you have known before, will not be an end unto itself. Instead you will raise your enjoyment to its highest levels, then use that immense energy to increase all your powers.
            The fundamental concepts of Tantra are found in the story of creation, as recorded in Tantric writings. It tells us that "before the universe, beyond time, there was but a single dot of creative power. That power was female, and from that single center the whole of the universe was brought forth. And the Goddess of Time stood at the center of the universe she had brought forth. Her creative power was spent, for she had created much, but within her there was a feeling of emptiness. As her creative powers regenerated themselves, she desired to create more, for in creating she derived her pleasure. So she brought forth the seas and the lakes, the lush trees and plants, and all the animals to dwell therein. She brought into existence all things, and set about to balance them, one unto the other, so that they would procreate and multiply.
            "After she had completed creation of the universe and the earth within it, she felt great pleasure, but her energy could not be depleted and she desired even further pleasure.
            "So she conceived the human female form and took it unto herself. And she named herself Kali, and divided herself into two, bringing forth Mahakala, the male. And she taught Mahakala the Tantric pleasures and the regeneration of his own creative powers.
            "Together these deities of Tantra brought forth the first humans and passed on to them the rituals of Tantra, that they too might know the joys of complete pleasure and total power over the universe."
            This concept  of creating underlies all Tantric Rituals. It sees males and Female as a single unit, united so closely and joined so deeply that they cannot be aware of any differences between them. Male and Female are one in the eyes of Tantra. And Male and Female must strive to attain the transcendental enlightenment that will be theirs when they can once again experience the "wholeness" that makes them one. For, says the Tantra, "in that wholeness lies the supreme truth, total enlightenment."
            On an earthly level, Male and Female join sexually through Tantric Rituals and thereby develop the power to move upward spiritually toward the cosmic whole, the one-ness that will bring them back to the total power of cosmic enlightenment which was theirs when they were but one Male-Female, joined beyond all time.
            Tantra makes it possible for you to experience this transcendental sexual union through the ritualistic approach set forth in this book. This is not merely a sex manual or how-to-book. It will initiate you into a discipline which will put you in the healing touch with the power of your sensuality and sexual energy. It will bring you heights of sexual pleasure. It will free you of self-consciousness and inhibitions. It will teach you to channel your immense sexual energy into all areas of your life.
            Tantra integrates knows no sexual frustration or inhibitions. Tantra integrates sexuality with the whole person. It enables the body, mind, and emotions to work together to give you power and control over your life and spiritual growth.
            Tantra is free of the hypocrisy that pervades most Western and Hindu religious orders, which seek enlightenment and truth through asceticism (primarily self-denial in sex).Tantra believes the path to enlightenment is through increased sexual activity.
            Tantra teaches that the ascetic road to wholeness and truth is self-defeating, a useless struggle.
            In Tantra, all man's faculties-physical, mental, emotional are stimulated as strongly as possible, then controlled, to bring ever new pleasure.
            A parable from one of the earliest Tantric texts, written in Sanskrit about two thousand years ago, tells of the hermit pilgrim who turned his back on all pleasure in search of Parasamvit, the "Supreme Truth." But no matter how far he traveled, nor how long he meditated and fasted, no matter how total his abstinence or how unbearable his self-inflicted pain, he never was able to reach that point of spiritual development where his concentrative powers were great enough to enable him to focus his total energy into the climb upward to the Supreme Truth.
            Disillusioned, frustrated by years of unrewarded effort, he rested on late afternoon by the side of a stream. To that stream came a female Tantric Master, to bathe and anoint her body for the night of pleasure ahead. She talked to the pilgrim and, after hearing his story, she seduced him "carrying his senses through Tantric pleasures to the state of extremest arousal, wherein he found the center of power he sought, awaiting him in what he had so long denied himself."
            Through the Awareness Rituals you will learn how to bring forth this sexual energy and retain it on a high plane, for your use at all times. Through the Control Rituals you will learn how to use your sensuality and sexual energy to bring forth sexual pleasure of an intensity you have never before dreamed possible. Through the Channeling Rituals you will learn how to direct this immense sexual energy to control your everyday activities, to control your mind, emotions and body. You will be able to tap the source of creative energy and use that creativity to resolve problems or bring forth new ideas.
            Tantra has evolved a series of specific mental and physical rituals which follow a deliberate psychological pattern designed to increase sexual concentration. And from that increased concentration, more complex sexual rituals and techniques are introduced, leading to more prolonged orgasm enjoyment and satisfaction.
            Then the Tantra goes further. Its rituals develop a totally sexual approach to living. During my earliest involvement in Tantric research, I was skeptical of the value of the process of "reacquainting" myself with my body. True, the Awareness Rituals were pleasantly exciting, but I doubted that they would teach me anything new. After all, I knew my body very well. But the approach to awareness through the basic rituals soon convinced me that I was experiencing different sensations. It was the same body I had always know, but now I was finding out new things about my senses, and consequently about my emotions. Sexual sensations I'd never before felt became a part of daily pleasure. And through the Tantric Rituals, I was able to harness my sexual energy and let it spill over to add virtually and sexual enjoyment to everyday living. Through these self-regenerating Tantric Rituals, the very essence of my being was filled with self-confidence and inner peace.
            To explain what Tantric sex is and how it works, we should first describe what it is not!
            Tantra is not a form of Tantric yoga, although certain Tantric ideas have been assimilated into some forms of yoga. There is even a yoga called "Tantric Yoga." But usually yoga tries to free the body and mind by separating them. Tantra seeks to unify them.
            As with "Tantric Yoga," ideas from Tantra have made their way into many other teachings. The Kama Sutra is a prime example, as is "Tantric Buddhism" (Vajrayana), which is practiced primarily in Tibet. It incorporates various Tantric teachings, mythology, and practice with compatible aspects of Buddhism. But it is the "pure Tantra" of Tantric Sex with which this book concerns itself.
            Tantra is not "meditative." Tantra pointedly avoids the usual forms of "meditation," which it considers a "repressive, passive act." Although the Tantric yantra  is a type of mental imagery, it is an active, aggressive concentrative form, which pursues a specific purpose: either to stimulate sexuality, or control it and channel its energy. It is far from the passive "emptying and filling of the mind" that is called meditation. Yet, because the imagery of the yantra is accomplished with the eyes closed, in a state of deep concentration, it is often confused with meditation. But, as you will see, it is a different form of mental focusing.
            Tantra is not yoga, meditation, or religion. In modern terms, the Tantra is a process which sexually reconditions the individual: freeing the mind, body, and emotions of all inhibition; developing total control over sexuality, enabling you to heighten sexual pleasure in its myriad forms; and channeling sexual energy and calling upon it to assist in all areas of living.
            Without meditation, without yoga, and without the strict dogma of religion, you will be able to attain, through the Tantric Sexual Rituals, all that meditation, yoga and so many religions promise and have a much more enjoyable time in the process!
            Through the use of the mental imagery of the yantra, the sound of the mantra, and the sexual rituals, Tantra enables you to reach a transcendental sexual level, a cosmic inner orgasm; to experience pure male-female sexuality a return to the essence of the universe; to the creation itself.
            The power of sexuality is the heart of Tantra; all pervading sex, frequent and prolonged. And because of the female's capacity for prolonged sexual activity and repeated orgasm, she has as at the creation always been the center of Tantric teaching. In earliest Tantric texts, it was the woman who instructed in the rituals, initiating all others into it. All organized Tantric groups were led by women. Then, through the years, when much of the Tantric literature was written by men, screened through the minds of learned Brahmins and others, the roles were reversed. Obviously, in the purest sense of Tantric sex, Female and Male are not only equal, they are one. They may teach each other or learn together.
            There are many other aspects of Tantra, enough to fill the several thousand books that have been written on the subject: books encompassing not only the original Tantric texts but also the influences of Tantra on yoga , Buddhism, and many other orders; books filled with legends, history, philosophy, and doctrines that have evolved from and revolved around the Tantra.
            This book is concerned primarily with the simplest and purest forms of Tantric Sex: that is, the basic physical, mental, emotional, psychic, and sexual rituals.
            The rituals have been taken from long research and experience in Tantric studies. They are interpreted in modern sexual terms , with much of the language of eastern mysticism stripped away.
            There are separate sections for Female and Male rituals to be done alone. These may be the only portions of Tantra you wish to pursue. Within themselves, these rituals teach all the basic Awareness, Control, and Channeling necessary.
            The book then proceeds to the sections of Rituals for Couples, "The Seven Nights of the Tantra." While written for heterosexual couples, the Rituals of the Seven Nights of the Tantra are equally intended for, and adaptable for, use by homosexual couples.
            The rituals themselves are to be enjoyed. Each is intended to bring pleasure, for the Tantra is always positive in its approach.
You will find as much pleasure in the pursuit of the goals of Tantric Sex as in attaining them. This ritualistic approach to sexual pleasure and fulfillment will bring to you an every increasing flow of sexual energy to fuel satisfaction of your every desire in life.
            In the words of the Tantric Master:
            "May I bring you sensual awareness, sexual ecstasy, and power over life."
