Tantra

  • The general term for the Tantric cults of India, Hindu, Buddhist and Jaina, whose doctrines are enumerated in texts called Tantras. Tantric practitioners seek to gain power and liberation resulting from the worship of the sakti or female energy in conjunction with male energy. This female energy often takes the form ofe The Goddess or Parvati, without whom Sivaes sakti cannot exit. This doctrine regards power as the polarization of opposites: purusa and prakrti. The practice may be expressed by erotic symbolism or abstract theory. Tantrism, like all Indian mystico-psychical speculation, is invariably associated with yoga, and has only tenuous links with fertility symbolism or with the magico eroticism. Tantrism, owing to its erotic symbolism and some of its practices has led to a misunderstanding of its ideology, which is due to the failure of some scholars to interpret correctly the technical terms used in the Tantric texts
