Reading: White Tantra Society website, it says
Please be cautious when you search the web for information on Tantra. White Tantra is not about sex.
I've collected enough information to understand this and that is actually why I am very interested in finding out more specifically about the WHITE tantra/science...and I can't help but think, anything that creates goodness and clarity within our own selves, helps all other areas of our existence/experiences which would include all kinds of connections.
There is just something inside of me that wants to know more and I want to listen because when I listen...amazing things happen in my life.
WHITE TANTRA SOCIETY SAYS:
The authentic science of White Tantra is only passed down from teacher to student in the oral tradition. This is why those who have mastered this tradition insist that the strict supervision of a qualified Guru is of first and foremost importance. The White Tantra system is not possible without a teacher. Whether or not you qualify for ongoing instruction with the Guru, based on your nature, the process begins with control of the senses. The objective is to instill the practice of obedience without consideration of logic.
There are no authentic books or scriptures on White Tantra available anywhere. In ancient times Tantric seers kept this science highly secret. Their secrecy was not simply to prevent people from learning Tantric techniques so that they could maintain a monopoly on the knowledge, but also to protect innocent people from the volatile potential of powers that could be unleashed through incorrect practice. Many have been interested to learn these techniques throughout history. But it is a rare individual who is ready to dedicate him or her self to the long years of practice it requires for mastery.
One of the salient features of the White Tantric system is its blend of material life and spiritual life in perfect harmony. It is possible within this system for the spiritual seeker to progress towards perfect bliss while engaging in household and worldly affairs. Indian saints and visionaries neither lay down their lives on the altar of spiritualism nor renounce life and the world just for the sake of it.
To create the conditions where the spiritual and worldly are in balance, a person is guided, through the practice of Mantra, to attain a state of perfect bliss that he or she experiences even while participating in everyday life…
So where do you begin if you want to learn White Tantra? First, it’s very important to make the distinction between learning about White Tantra and practicing White Tantra. They are very different procedures. In fact, they can even oppose one another.
Why is this so? One dimension of White Tantra that can be elusive, frustrating and incomprehensible is that progress in White Tantra is not based on mastery of external knowledge. In fact, there are times when knowledge can become a downright hindrance to our development.
Many spiritual systems advocate both study and practice of the elements of the system. This is not the case with the White Tantra process. This is because the White Tantra process is so powerful and evanescent that it requires we receive only and exactly the specific energies that will give us the highest quality of progress. Having said that, at the beginning of your quest it is important to learn who is teaching and what they are teaching. That way you can find who you want to study with and what you want to study.
The word Tantra means: the loom life is woven on, or Life's unbroken continuity. It is based on this belief: all is One in the Divine mystery of Existence, and the Divine is the ultimate joy, freedom, harmony, and highest beauty of all. It is about a fully incarnational spirituality: being wholly here, and moving through every aspect of our experience with one clear intention:
I will open everything to the pure Love that is within me and within us all...
In this I will reconnect fully to my Truest Self in order to become more fully alive, completely here, and happily whole.
(I love this)
White Tantra is traditionally a Tantra of transcendence, of the top of our heads, of receptivity to pure Divine Spirit which is forever free.
( I LOVE THIS)
(I LOVE THIS TOO!)
Red Tantra is the Tantra of pure sexual energy — the creative nature of our bodies — and union with the Divine by (ideally) moving through ecstatic energy into Divine Love and Presence.
From the Pink Tantra Perspective, Black Tantra is extremely dangerous, for it allows the lower, addictive, separate and selfish nature to persue its deepest sexual fantasies. This can be extremely liberating... if — and this is a big, big if — the soul is guided by an extremely wise and advanced spiritual teacher through the complete process and out the other side: free of fears and all repressed unmet developmental needs. The end result can be the most complete wholeness and wisdom... but, this playground is full of dangers, for the lower nature is connected to the collective pain body and what we may call, the demonic. Our capacity to decieve ourselves is astonishing. Be cautious about this... If you have a teacher who has gone this way and whose life is radiant with divine Love and Wisdom, and who is willing to stay with you all the way through... What a gift! But, simply put... be wise. Honor your capacity to expand and integrate safely, one step at a time.
(This one doesn't resonate with me and is not of interest to me at this time)
And I'm not really sure what I would do with the knowledge other than to have the awareness. I'm in no rush since I have plenty of goodness right in front of me. I just finished my TM and a few yoga stretches I'm trying to get better at. It's slow going....
Instead of moving the way love moves...I'm moving to my next growing edge with this one. As usual, I see no real purpose or reason to push myself toward injury. If I am the baby or the worst Yoga student in the room...I am completely OKAY with that!
