Magic, Sex, Distortions and Divinity What Tantra Is Not There is a misconception among people that Tantra is all about "bad things" like black-magic, animal sacrifices, sexual excesses and drinking liquor and that it is something distinct from daily Hinduism. The word "Tantra" in fact carries a negative overtone which is why a lot of people do not take up its study.

An average Hindu has very little, in fact, no idea what Tantra is all about and thinks that Tantra has no relevance to his daily Hindu duties. While it is true that sexual excesses, graveyard practices, black magic etc are a part of Tantric practices, they are but a small part of certain sects of the various Tantric schools, in the same way that animal sacrifices and drinking of Soma were a common aspect of the Vedas.

Any region or philosophy has its good sides as well as bad sides. However in the case of Tantra unfortunately the focus has been primarily on these negative aspects.

Tantra is therefore not only black-magic and erotic practices. It is much much more. Tantra is in fact an essential part of Hinduism and pervades almost all aspects of the life of an average Hindu in ways he or she cannot even being to comprehend.

Tantra and Hinduism Hinduism as we know today is essentially Tantric in nature built upon a Vedic super-structure. The dhyana mantras that we use during Pujas - many of them are derived from Tantric texts. The fact that a person could meditate on God at home and did not require an expensive Yagna is a Tantric concept. Allowing all caste access to meditate on God has been a Tantric initiative.

On the other hand, a Yagya is a pure Vedic concept. The only practice among Hindus that is more or less purely Vedic is the Aryan-Hindu marriage ceremony. Tantra is not a unitary system like the Vedas or any of the Hindu philosophies. It is an accumulation of practices and ideas of the Hindus since prehistoric times. Its birth is rooted in the Vedas; its development proceeded through the Upanishads, Itihasas, Puranas, and Smritis; and its luxuriant growth has been fostered by Buddhism, various minor Hindu sects, and also foreign influences.

The vitality and elasticity thus acquired made tantra enter every house and temple of India and it also made powerful inroads into every country where Indian thought went. What obtains as Hinduism in India and the West, is essentially tantra packaged to suit the need of a particular community or individual.

Age of Trantric Texts Various purANas themselves we find mention made both of the vaidiki and tAntriki forms of worship. After Buddha, we find Buddhists themselves began to have their own innumerable tantras. E although many texts have been written later than that. A typical Tantric-oriented world view involves: recitation of mantras or bijas construction of geometrical cosmic symbols maNDala the making of appropriate gestures mudrA the assignment nyAsa of powerful sounds or syllables on the body meditation on the deity dhyAna worship pUjA In short Sadhana is a key feature of Tantric practices.

Tantra vs Agama As far as texts are concerned, there are differences between texts called Agama and those called Tantra, although they both belong to the broad grouping of Tantric texts: a. In Agamas: - The emphasis is on Kriya or chArya i.

Buddhist Deity: Vajrapani, Bhutadamara

In Vajrayana Buddhism there are the three famous bodhisattvas which represent the essential characteristics of all the buddhas of the ten directions and three times. Manjushri represents wisdom, Avalokiteshvara compassion and Vajrapani power. Vajrapani as caretaker and guardian of all the Tantras is the special deity for removing the various types of obstacles that can arise during intensive practice. Within the Sakya School in general and the Lamdre Tradition in particular Vajrapani in the form of Bhutadamara is the foremost practice for removing obstructions on the path of a practitioner. The practice is found in Kriya, Charya and Anuttarayoga Tantra.

Kularnava Tantra

Ask a question Preface The Tantra literature of India, though in most cases almost lost, is still the only source whence a knowledge of Sadhana in all its aspects-theoretical, practical and ritualistic-may be derived and understood, because it is a Practical Pratysa Science. However, the Sastra in its literature is not a plain exposition, which would reveal its intricacies to anyone who lays a hand on it. The Initiation from the Guru is therefore essential. In fact it has been repeatedly emphasized in the Sastra that it can be fully understood only by such an Initiation-Srinatha vaktrat. However, if the subsequent tools which unravel the mysteries of Texts and also assist the process of decoding the Mantras concealed in the Text, are available, a Sadhaka can achieve some practical result. Today when worthy Teachers Sadgurus are getting scarce such tools become all the more essential.
