Tantra and the world

In Tantrism, the universe is perceived not as a "vale of sorrow" or an illusion, but as a radiant, full of colors, life and play the manifestation of Shakti. Tantra does not divide the world into "high" and "low", "spiritual" and "material" (note that for the well-worn word "spirituality" in Sanskrit there is no analogue). Tantric gurus do not give tedious moralistic lectures. Tantrics do not struggle with their passions, do not suppress anything and do not cover up. Passions are perceived as a natural manifestation, and their energy is used by Tantra followers in their ritual and mystical practice-sadhana. Collapse )
