Adi tantra is the primordial tantra or the first tantra, the fundamental tantra.
It is traditional tantra, very rigorous but wonderful, which gives us exceptional freedom provided we respect very strictly the conditions of success in tantra. Otherwise, the so-called tantra would no longer be tantra, but a path of accelerated fall.
It offers spirituality in the middle of life.
Tantra can be translated as
“stitch” or “warp”,
“evolution through the body”,
It can mean, for example, the infinitely complex fabric of the manifestation, which this group of practices seeks to transcend, precisely with the help of “the fabric”. The word also has the meaning of spiritual path or discipline,as well as that of tradition, method or theoretical work.
Another understanding of this word is that of “transformation”,which is specific only in a certain perspective of the tantric tradition.
We can consider that this word comes from the word tana (body) and traa (save), thus foreshadowing the meaning of this word, which in Adi Tantra means the path that offers the possibility of transcending the limitations that come from the wrong identification with the body and the outside world that comes to us through the senses (and which comes from ignorance) precisely with the help of the body.
Or, more clearly, with the help of the countless opportunities that our life integrated into a set of bodies that puts us in contact with the macrocosmic illusion at different levels of manifestation.
Note that the set of practical methods offered by Tantra nondualist Adi Tantra are helpful in achieving the transcendence and Revelation of the Supreme Reality in all three worlds: the physical world, the astral world and the causal world.
Nondualist tantra is the essential part of the Trika system. Trika means in Shivaism of The Trinity Kashmir. At the same time, Trika is the name under which the Sivaism of Kashmir was known before 1900, because the concept of trinity is manifested in many ways in its entire philosophical system.
How is it possible that erotic emotion will upright us?
The superior man, who does not deny and perfectly controls his instincts, spontaneously sees in people of the opposite sex a divine being, and he instantly poses in his counterpart.
The loving hero reminds us that we are truly saints… And for that we just have to refuse to fall into animality.
For many well-intentioned practitioners, Tantra would be the art of making beautiful love and without losing any control of sexual energy at all,realizing the so-called sexual continence – Arohana.
Well, what is even more characteristic in Tantra is, in fact, transfiguration.
Through transfiguration, truly, in that apparently human place and time meet not two people, but two angels.
Unfortunately, few people have access to authentic information regarding Tantra, this being approached superficially in most of the Western schools of Tantra.
They often present information that is not very much related to true tantric science, just as we cannot say that astrology and astronomy are identical, they are in fact two completely different sciences.
Essential tantric principles
What is here (in the microcosm of the human being) is everywhere (in macrocosm), what is not here (in the microcosm of the human being), is nowhere (in macrocosm).Kularna Tantra
The tantric reaches through God to the world and not through the world to God.
