Do you feel something is missing in your life? It may not be anything materialistic. You might be looking for something else; something more spiritual, something that can give meaning to your existence by helping you understand life and everything that surrounds it. You know you are meant to be more than what you are right now, but you don’t know how to do that. If this is the case, then Tantric yoga is just the perfect yoga type for you.
Tantric yoga is often known for its focus on a sensual union between two partners. Yes, it does help you relate on a deeper level with your partner and it includes a variety of poses that involve two partners. But anyone willing to practice this yoga type must know that Tantric yoga goes well beyond this scope. Tantric yoga helps you harmonize all aspects of yourself, with its main aim being the attainment of harmony between the male and female aspects within you in order to achieve creative wisdom and spiritual regeneration. Tantric yoga aims to expand awareness in all states of consciousness, whether awake, asleep or even when you are dreaming. This is something which can be achieved only by reprogramming thoughts and feelings, by altering them in a whole new way so that feelings arising from selfishness, ignorance, intolerance and our animal nature are banished and replaced by feelings of peace, harmony and order within us. But this, in no way, means that Tantric yoga is self-centered. In fact, it is a holistic approach that helps you study the entire universe from the point of view of an individual, from your point of view. That’s why it is often referred to as the study of macrocosm through the study of microcosm.
Although Tantric yoga is similar to other yoga types (because like all other yoga types, it focuses on the attainment of enlightenment and consciousness), it has a unique element to it that sets it quite apart from the rest. Unlike most spiritual sciences that ask the aspirants to renounce their desires, Tantric yoga believes desire to be the prime motivating force in the universe and thus does not require the practitioners to renounce them. It believes that as long as we live, we will continue to have desires. And this is where the concept of reprogramming comes in handy again; Tantric yoga equips its practitioners with tools to change the course of their desires. Tantric yoga involves physical and ritual cleansing, breathing exercises, contemplation, visualization and repetition of mantras, all of which combine to bring profound effects in the practitioner; divine consciousness and happiness. So, if you want such profound changes in you, choose Tantric yoga. After all, to be happy or not to be is only a matter of choice.
