What is Tantra?

Despite all the crazy theories and definitions Tantra has a very real definition as derived from the ancient Vedic texts of Hinduism. The best definition is simple and life affirming, sensual and meditative.

Guess what? It has nothing to do with an obsession with sex anymore than life itself has a sexual element.

Guess what else? It has nothing to do with humming on "Chakras", "breathwork", tuning forks, "healing" or any of the other Western oriented practices and references.

Tantra is about the energy of life, a unique form of energy that expresses as the living beings that you reading this are a form of. You are the expression of the life energy and the study and practice of Tantra is a way to recover the full meaning of that. Nothing more, nothing less.

There is no one that needs healing and no Tantra "healers", that is a Western invention that has gone too far for too long. It is time to set the record straight and define Tantra as the ancient Hindus did rather than the way that new age spiritualists would.
