    Tantra: Magic or sex or is it something else?
    What is Tantra? When I ask this question during workshops; in West, I find the answers equating it with sex/ yoga poses that guarantee good sex. Back home, however, the answer depends on socio-economic strata of my students. One class equates it with Black Magic & another with sex.
    When we equate Tantra with either sex or black magic, we come close to knowing what tantra is, and yet, we are way off the mark!
    Tantra as sex:
    One-dimensional approach to Tantra defines it as an expression of our innate energy. Isn’t that what sex is? Unfortunately, while engaging in sex, most of us are unaware of the results that will be manifested as a result of bringing this powerful energy into motion. It’s like we picked up a sharp knife, because it appealed to us.
    However, we have no clue how to use it. So, we are simply waving it all around. In the process, at times it’s cutting fruits, chopping woods and at times it’s cutting & chafing us.
    Please note the key word above was ‘one-dimensional’. If we employ this ‘tantra means sex’ approach, we are just nibbling upon the skin of the mango, happily unaware of the delicious delight that exists under the skin of the mango.
