The concept of Tantra originated in India thousands of years ago. The word Tantra stems from the religious texts heading towards spiritualism. Tantra is a Sanskrit word that means woven together.
It involves various practices like Worship and Ritual, Yoga, Mantra and Meditation, Mandalas and Yantras, and Sex and Eroticism. This blog is going to shed light on practicing the Tantra followed by sex and eroticism for leading a quality life. But before that let us first understand it from the scratch.
What exactly is Tantra?
Tantra is a spiritual practice to bring together your mind and soul. This means that when you are practicing tantra, your mind acts as much as your body. In this modern world, Tantra is different from its ancient roots. Instead of just being spiritual, it is now being observed as a sexual practice and commonly referred to as NeoTantric or spiritual sex.
Tantric Sex is different from other types of intercourse. While all sex is about pleasure, tantric sex emphasizes pleasure while helping you reach a deeper state of awareness, transcendence, and intimacy.
