What is Tantra?
Tantra is a Sadhana, a method, a technique or a path and is available in all religions. One may have faith in any religion. One can practice or do Sadhana as it does not touch one's religion and faith, rather it strengthens it by way of Puja and prayer to God. One may be Hindu, Jain, Buddhist, Muslim, Christian or connected with any other religion. Tantra is a regulated path to bring God, the deities and others under one's control through worship and prayer as it contains various methods of Sadhana and use of materials in specified forms, under set rules and directions.
Tantra and Mantras are interconnected. Tantra cannot be successful without Mantra Siddhi. Unless both are practiced simultaneously success cannot be achieved in Tantra. On the other hand one can attain success and siddhi only in Mantra.
Asana is actually a step by step dissolution of the body into the subtle elements, a process of gradual involution whereby the body is identified with the sense of smell, water with taste, fire with vision, air with touch, ether with sound. These five elements are merged one by one into their sources with the potentials of the energies (Tanmatras) and ultimately ego (Ahan Kara), is dissolved into mahat, the great one. Shakti or pure consciousness is constantly coming down in a shower on human beings, but on account of cosmic bombardment, it is immediately transformed and diffused throughout the body. In reuniting SHIVA SHAKTI, the adept can reach out and enjoy the benefits falling form the Sahastara Chakra, the centre of communication directly between the individual being and the infinite consciousness above.
Tantra Asana is one of the means of this realization. Asanas, the science of psychoyogic poses, are based upon a concept of the universe and of man's role in it. The asanas aim is to make one aware of one's potential and to realize and experience joy in being one with the cosmos. It is a yogic practice of transcending the human condition. Tantra itself is unique for being a synthesis of bhoga and yoga, enjoyment and liberation.
In the human body, there are several energy centres containing latent psychic powers. These are called chakras. If activated, they hold potential for reaching cosmic planes of existence. They can be portals to a new existence and the realization of inherent powers.
The Six main chakras of the human body are the Muladhara Chakra (at the base of the spine), Svadhisthana (near the heart) Visoddha (near the throat), and Ajna (between the brows). A seventh Chakra, situated four fingers above the cerebrum, is Sahasrara symbolically represented by the thousand paralled lotus. Sahasrara is said to be the abode of Lord SHIVA, Comic consciousness, and Muladhara the seat of Shakti, from whom originates that Cosmic force known as KUNDALINI. Ultimately, Tantra asana aims to aroase Kundalini Shakti to unite with SIVA, realizing the highest, most intense joy Mahasukla.
All the six centres (Sat-Chakras) are located with the Meru Danda (the vertebral Column) not in the gross (Sthulasharira) but in the subtle body (Linga Shashira). As the repository of psychic energies, they govern the whole condition of being. However in man's normal state, these chakras are dormant.
Through planned meditative asanas, Kundalini Shakti, the great power within the human body, usually latent, lies awakened. This force is compared to a snake lying asleep in the body. Once released from the Muladhara Chakra, it uncoils and begins to rise upward, breaking open and transforming each energy centre as it ascends until Shakti enters the magnetic sphere of SHIVA consciousness.
In yogic practice, discipline of breathing is absolutely essential. Prana, the life force, or vital air, enters the human entity through these psychic centres and nadis getting diffused throughout according to different functions. These are known as Vayus (Vital Aris) which are important to the Tantric practitioner.
The Guru is a preceptor and a guide in the performance of puja and puja practiced and performed by a person who is uninitiated by a Guru becomes ineffective or fruitless. In Hindu shastras it is laid down that neither a visit to a place of pilgrimage nor the practice of meditation and observance of ritualistic vows by a person becomes successful unless initiated by a Guru.
