Ancient Tantra - The Key To Ultimate Relationship Depth

By Acharya Subhojit Dasgupta

Tantra is the key to deep emotional bonding and spiritualized relationships between men and women. It preaches that in relationships, we must find a balance between playfulness and seriousness while never losing sight of an essential erotic undercurrent. Tantra expounds the uninhibited expression of our humanness, and deplores the tendency of human relationships to become mechanical and soulless.

In our lifetime, we undergo several evolutionary changes. Tantra teaches us to meet these changes with enhanced awareness and self-honouring at every stage. By applying the precepts and practices of ancient tantra, we can ensure that our deepest relationships are rich in understanding, love and harmony.

We must learn to differentiate authentic tantra from the vacuous, superficial offerings being marketed by supposed tantra workshops. No 'tantra retreat' can hope to inculcate the necessary depth of spiritual awareness that defines pure ancient tantra.

Remember, genuine tantra practices guided by an accomplished tantra master actually paint the tapestry of your life in new and joyous ways. As any qualified tantra master can affirm, there will never be any shortcuts to such a divine goal.

In present times, many relationships blow hot and cold, lacking in the depth and abundance that Nature decrees they should have. These relationships become uncomfortable and barren for both partners.

This is because the partners love for themselves and harmony with each other, rendering them incapable of feeling expressing joy in the relationship. Sadly, the sacred message of tantra either never reaches their ears, or is garbled and rendered impotent by inept interpretation.

An authentic tantra teacher works with his pupils to bring the joyful "Ohs" and "Ahs" back into their relationships by addressing physical, emotional and spiritual lacunae. The ecstasy returns - it seeps back in at the emotional and spiritual levels, and then spills joyously over into the physical realm. This is how expertly guided tantra practices heal our relationships, and help them be all they can be in our existence here on earth.

The sacred scriptures of ancient tantra are explicit on how spiritual harmony makes any relationship truly complete. To quote from the 'Yoni MahaNirvan':

"Hold me close, profoundly and spiritually So as much as His arms were around me, I feel a sense of peace and complete acceptance And.....desire to be like this forever!

Sexual attraction has ended; spiritual attraction has begun (spiritual attraction has begun... spiritual attraction has begun"

Most women know deep down that they possess the seed of profound harmony within. Most men know that their male energy is capable of balancing this harmony to completeness - to the joyful fulfilment of both partners.

Enabling this blissful state of harmony is the sacred promise of tantra. Let nothing keep you from drinking deep of this ancient font of wisdom, and from taking your relationships from barrenness to divine levels of delight and harmony.
