What is Tantra?- A real explanation



The word ‘Tantra’ has for many people become entirely identified with gaining sexual pleasure. But this understanding misses the whole essence of the tradition. Tantra is really about using and transforming the physical world around us so that we can realise our divine nature.
Most aspects of Hinduism today has some form of tantric practice. There is Mantra, Yantras and Mudras as well as tantric forms of Yoga. But where we really see the greatness of this tradition is in the Hindu Temple. Through a series of rituals material matter in the form of an image becomes ‘divinised’ into the embodiment of God. In this way we can appreciate that Tantra, is not about hedonistic pleasure, but is about living with the divine.
