The Spiritual Roots Of Tantra Yoga

February 24, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 196

Much is written on tantra yoga, but it is important to understand what differentiates tantric yoga from other forms. Like everything else about the tantric way of life, this form of yoga has very deep roots in the human experience.

The principles of Tantra Yoga are based on an amalgamation of various sciences and spiritual studies, including astrology, astronomy, psychology, chemistry, physics, numerology and the ancient Indian herbal medicine system of Ayurveda. Tantra yoga has a basis in all these disciplines, and is therefore a profound practice with roots in a wide cross-section of human existence.

When a student learns tantra yoga under and experienced tantra teacher, he or she will experience an incredible expansion of awareness in every state of consciousness. However, it is first necessary for the tantra teacher to de-program the student's mind. Tantra yoga requires a relatively pure and innocent state of mind and awareness in which to take hold and flourish.

The de-programming process in teaching tantra yoga is not always pleasant, since the student of tantra needs to question many erroneous beliefs and practices that keep him or her from evolving into a higher state of spiritual awareness. There are many social, familial or experiential influences that crowd our mind, and these are constantly working in the background to rob us of mental peace and spiritual equilibrium.

Since these 'programs' are contrary to what tantra yoga requires, they are first exposed and then cleaned from the mind and soul. This requires a master's touch and a whole lot of compassion. This is why tantric yoga should never be taught by anyone but an accomplished tantra master.

Throughout the learning process, the tantra student is introduced to various techniques to identify and eliminate the contaminants of the soul and the psyche. Disruptive factors that poison thoughts and emotions are faced and overcome, and the result is freedom from ignorance, intolerance and pointless, bestial lust. These are replaced by knowledge, a sense of oneness with all things and the awakening of sacred sexuality.

Tantra yoga finally brings with it a welling up of tantra energy - energy which was hitherto misunderstood and either abused or sadly under-utilized. In this state of psychic and spiritual renewal, regular practice of tantra yoga under the auspices of a genuine tantra teacher will yield profound results. In fact, life itself is reinvented.

The various postures and meditation techniques of tantric yoga constantly purify mind, body and soul, detoxifying the practitioner at every level of existence and bringing peace, harmony and spiritual wellbeing.
