The Kama Shastra: Beyond Sex

Sexuality and the human condition in spiritual context

By Gauri Mataji Devi

Many people have heard about the Kama sutra, but generally the ideas that circulate are rather distorted, vague and confused by ignorance and prejudice. Such prejudice is mostly due to the cultural superimposition of layers of prude bigotry and self-righteous moralism brought by iconoclastic Islamic dominator’s and later by Victorian British Christians.

Enforced by the abrahamic invaders, the wholesale condemnation of the intrinsic beauty and joy of the natural form and activities of the body, effectively destroyed the Vedic expressions of beauty and joy, or covered them with the thick plaster of shame.

And that’s not simply a manner of speaking: plaster physically obliterated

Massage; Body and Mind

The magic of touch

Massage is a global industry and one of the most effective treatments for muscular aches and pains, but what is less known is that massage is also helpful in relieving many other health problems including mental and emotional stress.

Physical stress relief

It’s well known that getting out of your head and into your body releases stress and refreshes the spirit. Therefore active people take some responsibility for their lives by engaging in physical activity. For some people it may be running, for others it may be swimming, mountain climbing or yoga, but it can be any activity where winning is not important that challenges body and mind so that they function harmoniously.

By focusing on

Path To Enlightenment or Sexual Freedom?

A Tumblr image

Tantra for most people is seen as something vague and mysterious from the East, so what are the origins of Tantra?

No one is sure exactly when tantra first appeared on the world stage. It seems probable that it was introduced about the same time as the first yoga teachings were given some 15,000 years ago.

The primary purpose of tantra was to further the process of self-realisation and what self-realisation means is that as an individual you have turned to look inside yourself and realised your human nature and potential.

One of the teachings of Jesus Christ that has been overlooked is the verse from the Gospel of Thomas

These gifted people possess a deep understanding of humanity and the subtleties of human nature, combined with holistic idealism, they are helping to to heal the sexual wounds of men and women and deepen the understanding of all of life.

Tantric Massage

Cultivating real intimacy

A good tantra massage includes the entire body and it is most therapeutic when both giver and receiver are naked.

Tantric (or Tantrik) massage is perhaps best described as a ‘new age phenomenon’. In practice it is an extension of sensual massage designed to harmonize all aspects of an individuals body consciousness including sexual energy.

While many puritans see this as nothing more than an aggrandized sensual or erotic massage, serious schools of thought have emerged and there are many credible institutions around the world that practice and teach tantric massage.

The goal of the masseuse/masseur is to bring the client to a high level of sexual arousal and have them bathe in this euphoria

Tantra Massage

An overlooked healing tool

Background

The word tantra is thrown about without much knowledge and tantra has become a new age buzz word. At it’s root, tantra is a classical South Asian technology designed to liberate and empower people on all levels of life so that they can achieve their dreams and enlightenment. This tantra technology is a meditative practise used in Buddhism and Hinduism.

Because the euphoria of meditation and orgasm are similar in that both activities can produce a state of bliss, many people have concluded that the outcomes for both practices (tantra meditation and sex) are the same.

Superficially the outcomes are the same; the result of tantra meditation produces and natural euphoria which is independent on

A path to end suffering

Green Tara, a divine feminine element within tantra

Tantra was originally developed as a spiritual practice and became accepted as a shortcut path to Enlightenment. It was adopted into Hinduism and was taken to Tibet where it became the central practice in Tibetan Buddhism and has survived in its original form until today, the teachings being passed on from teacher to student.

Tantra had nothing to do with sexuality other than tantra is about all aspects of life, It is the sexual terminology used to explain tantra that causes confusion.

To understand Classical Tantra in this context it helps to understand the concept of the archetypes of our characters that were made better known

Sexual Healing

Do you feel at a loss to understand your sexuality? Is there a lack of love in your life? Are you not getting the intimacy you need? Is your partner not performing as you desire? Is there a rift developing in your relationships?

Sex is often a big and painful issue and there are so many people who are sexually frustrated, in a state of constant sexual hunger and this starvation leads to mental and physical sickness including some major depressions and anger.

What most people are hungry for is INTIMACY. Sex is seen as the deepest level of intimacy, but it can be translated in touch, or look, or care. If there is an intimacy in your

Massage for her libido

The sensitivity and power of full body holistic massage (R)

Now semi retired after massaging for many years, I continue to be amazed by the transformative effects of a full body massage. Typically clients are grounded, they become more relaxed and unconcerned with the world around them, but they also become more aware and able to engage with life.

As a male working in the industry, I’ve always had guys wanting extras like hand relief that I’ve never been into. But some women have asked for this service. But what is more significant is women who have lost interest in sex. They are often labelled as frigid and cold, but they lose interest in sex for a variety of reasons

Shiva and Shakti

The energy behind our soul

In Tantric cosmology, the whole universe is perceived as being created, penetrated and sustained by two fundamental forces, which are permanently in a perfect, indestructible union. These forces or universal aspects are called Shiva and Shakti.

Tradition has associated a form to these principles, respectively that of a masculine deity and that of a feminine one. Accordingly, Shiva represents the constitutive elements of the universe, while Shakti is seen as the dynamic potential, which makes these elements come to life and act.

From a metaphysical point of view, the divine couple Shiva-Shakti corresponds to two essential aspects of the One: the masculine principle, which represents the abiding aspect of God, and the feminine principle, which
