By Martin Svensson and Celestine Andersen.
This article is based on a lecture which was kept by Martin and Celestine in the International Yoga Congress 2010, which took place on 13-17 of October in Bucharest, Romania. On that event there were kept dozens of lectures and workshops by yoga teachers from all over the world. Among the participating teachers there was made a friendly contest for the best lecture. This lecture by Marin and Celestine won the 3rd place of all the lectures.
We will share our personal experience as a couple, upon tantric lovemaking, sexual continence and polarity as a method for spiritual growth, methods to transform the couple relationship into a spiritual engine through polarity and sexual continence, notions on the differences between men and women, and the game of polarity from a spiritual point of view.
A preview on Tantra
According to the ancient spiritual traditions, Tantra is the science of the consciousness, essentially based on experiencing the most intense and powerful states provided by the senses, in a perfectly controlled manner, in order to use this powerful energy to expand the individual limited field of awareness into the Cosmic Universal consciousness.
Among all the experiences of a human being, the erotic union, full of love and transfiguration between a man and a woman is one of the deepest and strongest. The sexual dynamism is the most powerful physical experience and in the same time so easily accessible, and Tantra offers the method to transform it into a way to spiritual regeneration and ecstasy.
The sexual energy is one of the strongest generators for intensive states we have, and used in a wise and controlled way it can be the trigger for awakening divine levels of our being. Therefor Tantra points out the deep value of the couple relationship and sexual union, because the relationship between the man and the woman holds a tremendous spiritual potential.
Kularnava Tantra states: “Using boring and difficult techniques, nobody can achieve perfection. Perfection can be achieved easily through complete controlled and aware satisfaction of the desires.”
This very courageous approach made Tantra an easy subject of misunderstandings. Westerners misused Tantra for encouraging the so-called free sexuality, which is nothing but a sure path to decadence and sufferance if the sexual continence (in fact implying a very severe discipline in order to be attained) is not practiced!
In order to be able to use the tantric methods for spiritual transformation, one should adopt a new attitude regarding the creative – sexual energy. Spiritualizing and sacralizing the sexuality is a pillar for the tantric path. Without this attitude, all the techniques or procedures are nothing but sterile exercises. What provides the real transformation into a student of Tantra, is this transfiguration of his/her sexuality into a sacred cosmic act of union between the two polarities: masculine and feminine, for recreating the primordial perfect Androgyne.
This way, the sexual union becomes a form of meditative discipline having deep psycho-mental and spiritual effects.
How to use sexuality as a spiritual tool, lies into the mechanisms of the mind and the way these mechanisms can be controlled. Tantra reveals that an intensive state have the power to destroy the self-imposed limitations that we would normally impose in the beginning of our evolution. We all know the experience of the amazing state of freedom and clarity that comes after a very intensive state of pleasure or pain because of the overwhelming amount of emotions. When going lucidly through such intensive experience, our consciousness expands immensely. The tantric system found different methods to produce in a safe way, intensive states and use them systematically to expand the consciousness.
Also here we want to mention the emphasis Tantra puts on our approach on sexuality, that is encouraged to be full of courage without taboos. First of all we have to realise where we are and start from there, as a classical example Tantra gives us. A sense of complete honesty, openness and self-awareness is needed. Everything we fear, will limit and bound us and the way to freedom is to confront and overcome our limiting patterns. Our experience is, that on the base of the intimate love relationship, we became much stronger because we were reflecting each other, giving honest, but loving feedback and guidance. In this way, we became more aware and because of the mutual support, also able to grow and overcome our limitations. The beauty of being in a couple is that there is always one to reflect you and thus the potential for fast and efficient growth, when both have transformation as a goal, and the ability to give feedback with love to help each other and not to criticise. And because we are different, we became examples for each other in different ways. Martin is for example very open-minded and detached and Celestine playful and spontaneous. He taught her to detach from her emotions and become a witness to her life. She taught him to be more free and enjoy life. In this case we helped each other to become balanced, adopting some of the best qualities from each other.
The key to a permanent transformation on the spiritual path, is repetition. An overwhelming, intensive state which is not repeated doesn´t represent a true value for the spiritual practitioner, because only the lasting states marks a real transformation.
And here comes the aspect of discipline that takes the unconscious experience and lifts it through awareness, because of the systematic approach. By putting a conscious goal into the relationship and having practical methods to obtain it, we get the conditions for the experience to become lucid and thus being able to reflect and measure the results. This sounds for some, mechanical and boring, because they are used with pleasure being connected with unconsciousness and “loosing the head” in essence letting go of the control. We see this as a consequence in the society where duty and pleasure is separated and people seek false enjoyment and relaxation through unconsciousness; excess of stimulants, drugs, TV and unhealthy food for paralyzing the senses.
We speak about the conscious erotic intensive pleasure, including all the senses, which can create high states of spiritual ecstasy, when controlled and guided to higher levels of our being.
When we approach the sexual union full of love and aspiration towards the spiritual fulfillment, combined with awareness, we have a perfect set-up for a deep and profound experience with the beloved. If we want to have lasting states of ecstasy and spiritual awakening, it is important to repeat the experience and not to leave it as an outstanding experience based on good luck that day, but to mark it in our consciousness and analyse what made us have that experience - then we can repeat it until we have obtained the aimed goal.
The attitude that Tantra is suggesting is to courageously approach the sexual exercises and should be a combination between the detached state related to karma yoga, the precision of a scientist and the devotion and transformation of a real mystic.
The fundament of the tantric sexuality is love. Even though the tantric approach on sexuality contains methods and techniques to master the control over the sexual energy, this would never be enough in order to reach the truly deep and profound states of divine union in the lovemaking. What really accelerates our states into ecstasy is based on the intense longing and love we have for our beloved, and then applying the sexual continence in the intense and polar lovemaking, we have the perfect recipe for experiencing the divine union with our beloved and the entire Universe.
One of the biggest secrets of Tantra is that the sexual energy hides the greatest potential for transformation and evolution of any human being. The sexual potential is the very manifestation of the creative primordial power at the individual level. Wasting this potential is a fast way to loose all your vital energy. Mastering this potential, maintaining the creative energy through perfect sexual continence, is the way to reach perfection.
Lovemaking with love, transfiguration and sexual continence awakens an enormous amount of energy in the aura of the two lovers. This energy can be used for transforming entirely those beings on all levels through awakening of the superior chakra-s, expanding the level of consciousness over the subtle parallel dimensions, awakening the latent energy Kundalini etc. For this, the process of sublimation is the key. Without sublimation, all the energy resulting after the sexual continence is applied successfully, will tend to stagnate only in the sexual area, lowering its frequency of vibration and possibly generating even negative phenomena such as: irritability, frustrations, tensions, indulging in the trap of sensorial pleasures, confusion, haze, possessiveness, jealousy and attachments.
Through sublimation, sexual energy is directed to other non-sexual aspects of a person such as vitality, psychic and emotional structures, mental and spiritual areas.
Sublimation is a process performed by will. Transmutation of the sexual energies appears almost spontaneously as long as the sexual potential is kept inside during a very intense and effervescent lovemaking (and not wasted through ejaculation or explosive feminine discharge respectively), the energy which results has to be directed and controlled afterwards. If it remains mostly in the sexual area it will have the tendency to ‘condense’ back in lower aspects, producing only an increased sexual appetite and the feeling of erotic desire. It is always a conscious choice to sublimate the energies, either by will, visualization or tantric techniques.
The orgasm: a way to ecstasy
Lovemaking with continence is the way to discover that love, tenderness and sensuality add countless delightful nuances to our whole existence, as well as ensuring excellent health. And, moreover, the sublimation of the energies at superior levels produces powerful spiritual transformations, the goal of any spiritual path.
One of the biggest mistakes nowadays is to equal orgasm and ejaculation (sexual discharge in the case of women). Tantra describes the orgasm as being a blissful state of expansion of the consciousness beyond all the individual normal experiences, in which the usual limits of the selfish ego are suddenly cancelled, the tyranny of the mind is abolished, and the subject experiences a certain form of ecstasy. For a short moment, one discovers in amazement, the abandonment, the death of the egotism, the canceling of the time, and the experience of the Unity, which makes this condition identical with a metaphysical experience; therefore, in terms of the tantric system, often the Enlightenment (the state of ecstasy) is even called "the cosmic orgasm".
In simple words we can say that the orgasm is the door to ecstasy. On the contrary: the ejaculation is the u-turn on that way. Prolonging the orgasm beyond the normal limits through the sexual continence leads to super sensual experiences and enriches us with incredible capacities. The lovemaking experience becomes an opportunity to explore the mysterious land of ecstasy, overwhelming happiness, pure blissful joy, and super sensual games. The feeling of love in a couple is strengthened by the controlled orgasm. Instead of being an exhausting experience, orgasm with continence reveals its sacred meaning.
The true, profound orgasm appears when there is a perfect state of polarity within ones being.
As a very process, the phase of orgasm is characterized by the loss of the individuality (ego). The excitation, previously focused mostly in the genital area, begins now to spread in the entire body, rising towards the head. An intense process of transmutation of the sexual potential takes place and the energy released inside, is leading to an overwhelming state of happiness, pleasure, intuition about the hidden mysteries, insight beyond the ‘normal reality’ and even mystical states. Together with this amazing spiritual experience, the entire physical body feels rejuvenated and regenerated due to the resorption of the rich elements contained in the semen (or sexual feminine fluids) and the re-cycling of them for feeding the inner organs and nervous system. This is the secret process of using the sexual potential (sperm in the case of man and sexual secretions in the case of woman), which is transformed in substances that the organism resorbs inside through the lymphatic network present around the genitals (in this way, all the precious substances that the semen or sexual secretions are made of, are reused and they feed the whole human structure: body, soul and spirit), and the resulting energy become part of the individual global energetic structure.
Once this potential is not lost through ejaculation, the orgasm experience can be repeated indefinitely and thus the couple (both man and woman) can experience the very famous tantric multiple orgasm.
The reason to practice sexual continence appears clearly in this light: it is the only chance to have a wonderful erotic relationship.
The lovemaking with sexual continence allows both lovers to experience peak states of orgasm (in the same time or separately), taking care constantly of the transmutation of the sexual potential (sperm in the case of man and sexual fluids in the case of woman) and sublimation of the resulting energies towards superior chakra-s and refined levels of one’s being.
So both from a human and spiritual point of view, the sexual continence is the wonderful solution to transform our lovemaking in a source of fulfillment and harmony for our couple relationship and, for the tantric initiated ones, to use it for our spiritual evolution [meaning the awakening of superior levels of the being (emotional, affective, mental, spiritual) with the help of the sublimed energies]. Also it is important to underline the importance of the state of orgasm as being an experience of non-duality and transcendence (starting with the limitations of the ego).
Tantra reveals that experiencing long, profound and controlled orgasms a human being has the chance to reach high states of ecstasy and transcendence.
In the tantric tradition, sensuality which is refined and amplified very much through sexual continence, appears as being a natural way to reach divine ecstasy (called in spirituality samadhi). Intense erotic experiences, due to the sexual continence, leads to a transpersonal state together with the other benefits. In the same time, this kind of eroticism is a mysterious way of knowing, the controlled pleasure and intense experience of the senses have here the role of a staircase to superior levels of consciousness.
The success in sexual continence implies some very important aspects. Without grounding the training within them, the practice of sexual continence is very difficult and also, even if the ejaculation could be suspended, spiritual results will not appear. The foremost important one is the LOVE. There is a big difference between having sex and making love. Just to mention few: having sex is a selfish perspective, egoistically oriented only towards satisfying one’s own lust while making love is a devoted and self-giving action of expressing one’s love and adoration for the beloved using the erotic energy. Having sex is limited to the genital organs, leaving behind frustrations and a bitter taste of missing the essential while making love is expanding one’s consciousness from finite to infinite with the help of the ecstatic states of orgasm, reaching hidden spiritual dimensions unbelievable for normal people.
There is nothing better in the world than to love and be loved back and a peak of this happiness is to make love with your beloved one. Tantra says: “when love is infinite, the impossible becomes easily possible.”
When love is missing but there is sexual attraction, you can only have sex. But when two lovers love each other, making love represents for them a wonderful crowning of their feelings.
“If a woman is free and radiant in feminine energy, the man is probably attracted; sometimes more attracted,sometimes less attracted, but always attracted. This attraction is not only natural, but healthy. It is a sign of polarity, the same kind of natural flow of polarization by which electricity flows between the positive and negative poles of a battery. The nature of nature is polarity, from the magnetism that flows between the north and south poles of the earth, to the attraction that flows between the masculine core and the feminine radiance of a woman.”
When there is a strong attraction between a man and a woman, it represents a big amount of energy which has a potential to be used for spiritual transformation. The more energy we have, the bigger is our potential growth. A state of polarity in a human being or between a man and a woman, lies in the game between energy and consciousness. Here the feminine represents the energy and the masculine the consciousness. It is a common knowledge that we attract our match, so a very feminine woman will attract a very masculine man, a more neutral woman will attract a more neutral man. The same is valid within our own being; when we have a lot of energy and emotion we need more awareness in order to polarise our selves, but if we are weak we need less awareness. If a person is very emotional but lacks consciousness, he or she will drown in chaos. If a person is very mental and aware but lacks energy/vitality, he or she will be very dry and unable to sustain hard or long lasting actions.
In Tantra we emphasise a lot on vitality as a base of any step on the spiritual path. A strong vitality is the fundament and hereafter comes the sublimation and awareness to lift our being to higher levels of consciousness. Here we can mention the direct experience of the state of vitality as a measure of the ability for high intense states of pleasure. When the vitality goes lower in one of us, we are not able to reach the highest levels of ecstasy, nor the ability to make love for many hours. The vitality is directly linked with the ability to experience and maintain high divine states.
The game of the masculine and feminine is a constant practise within ourselves to become perfect, balanced human beings. And the couple relationship is a very efficient tool for working with the polarity, where the man will represent the masculine pole of consciousness, focus, direction and firmness, and the woman the feminine pole of energy, emotion, movement and changeability.
The stronger this polarity is between the man and the woman, the greater the attraction becomes and represents the engine in the couple relationship. What we do with this potential engine is up to our direction. If we just enjoy and consume the polarity, sooner or later the attraction will disappear and this is what many couples experience like a drying out of their relationship, the passion gradually disappears and frustrations becomes more dominant between them. Often we experience that as long as one of us takes our part of the pole, the other one follows. It doesn´t help to criticise the other one or waiting for him to be more masculine or her to be more feminine. If you want transformation in the couple relationship, start with yourself.
The mans attraction to women is natural, normal, and beautiful. In fact, it is an aspect of the same desire that will ultimately lead him toward spiritual freedom. The women represents the feminine energy, Shakti, the creation. And the more the man is able to embrace the manifestation of the feminine, regardless if it is a storm in nature or an emotional storm from his woman, it shows his level of masculinity and ability to stand firm. When a man rejects the feminine manifestation, his ability for a strong polarisation diminishes. The more centered, firm and present a man is, the more energy he can contain. A man can practise the state of embracing the feminine in every moment, seeing the whole manifestation as his lover, feeling her, breathing her in and loving her equally in the wild stormy hurricanes and in the warm, gentle breezes. The feminine, even in the non-human forms of a lush tropical island or a favorite tune, is a way to polarise the man. The acceptance of sexual attraction, even with music and places, is at the root of our capacity to experience bodily pleasure.
If we take the same example in the case of the women, it means that the more she opens for her amount of energy, and let it flow freely, the stronger and more intense experiences she has, the more she will become present and aware. In the most intense, profound experiences of lovemaking - and especially in the moment of the tantric implosive orgasm, the woman can experience deep states of consciousness, transcending her ego and thus enter the ecstatic blissful void.
This shows us that the deeper we dive into our natural essence, as a man or woman, the more we polarise ourselves.
The polarity in the couple relationship is essential in order to take high spiritual steps on the path. The more intensity we create, the more we trigger a potential awakening of the consciousness, thus sublimating the energies upwards and enter the gate to divine ecstasy.
An efficient method to create polarity, is the tantric lovemaking done with love, transfiguration and sexual continence, making an intense awakening of the senses combined with a state of lucidity and being fully present in the moment. When we stimulate the senses in an intense, pleasurable way, we become present in the body and open a gateway into the depth of our being. If we maintain a conscious state of witness in the experience, we create the perfect union between the masculine and feminine aspect within our being. In the same time the man can focus on his masculine essence and the woman on her feminine essence and become aware of the polar game in the sexual union with the beloved.
In the game of polarity, if we look at the history of time, men have always enjoyed to watch women, to see them manifest their feminine qualities - and it is a feminine attribute for the woman, to shine and manifest her love and beauty. Men will even pay to watch a woman’s body express ecstasy. In our Western culture, most men are only familiar with sexual ecstasy, and so it is this form of free bodily expression that men pay to see, in movies, on the stage all around the world. However, in cultures that admit a greater degree of spiritual revelation, women’s bodies are viewed with the same masculine awe, but for a different kind of expression: not merely for their capacity to express sexual ecstasy in a way that is foreign, and unbelievably attractive, but also for their capacity to express spiritual ecstasy. Temple dancers in India, for instance, are traditionally feminine women trained from an early age to combine skill and heartfelt devotion in a style of dance which frees their bodies to be moved by divine force, bringing tears to many men’s eyes and openness to their hearts. A woman who is at home with her feminine essence is at home with energy, be it sexual or spiritual. For such a woman, there is no disconnection between sexuality and spirit. Whether in a strip joint or a sacred temple, men have been attracted for thousands of years to witness the feminine embodiment of ecstasy. Women are literally worshipped in such occasions.
A womans sexual surrender, if she is with a man who she truly loves, is the same as her devotional or spiritual surrender.
Recipe for rebuilding polarity
1. Stop bad habits which damage the polarity.
2. Take a break. Use the time apart to regenerate and build your own pole, increasing femininity in the case of the woman, and masculinity in the case of the man.
3. Increase and awaken the sensual erotic energy.
Practice sexual continence and improve it constantly. Contemplate erotic art and use aphrodisiacs.
4. Be romantic as often as possible. Do something, big or small, that your beloved will really like, every week.
5. Be prepared and considerate in the company of your beloved. Prepare yourself for your meetings, and do not show yourself in a non-beautiful way.
6. Increase intimacy and focus on continuous transformation. Use time together to go deeper in your connection with each other. Invoke the energy of the beginning by remembering all the beautiful moments you had in the beginning of the relationship.
In the couple relationship with a base of deep love and spiritual aspiration for growth, it is a constant issue to maintain the polarity as a method for lasting happiness, fulfillment and spiritual transformation. As a man and a woman we have to be aware of our inner essence and consciously manifest and renew our masculine or feminine potential.
First of all we need as a couple to set a higher goal and purpose for walking the path together and then apply all the necessary means to keep the right track. Be honest, courageous and take the necessary actions to overcome any limitation. Aim to have a daring, detached attitude towards your inner challenges.
The more polarity we have between us, the more we are able to accelerate into higher states of consciousness. We should always aim to seek intense experiences and nurture the erotic fulfillment and intimacy in the couple relationship.
And more important above all else; love, love and love.
With love & aspiration

Natha Yogacenter, Copenhagen, Denmark.
International Yoga Congress 2010, MISA.
1st year student:
For me, the yoga school gives me tools I can use to develop myself as a person. My inner and outer lives are changing for the better as I practice yoga and use it in my daily life.
The yoga school is catering for all and all are respected and equal. There is a peaceful, positive and loving atmosphere.
The teachers are very skilled in teaching, for this I am very grateful. On the whole, it's nice to be surrounded by loving and open-minded people. I have only good things to say about Natha yogacenter which for me is the school I find myself best at when it comes to personal and spiritual development.
4th year student:
I began several years ago to interest myself for yoga and meditation, and met Natha yogacenter. I started yoga course in March, and in July there were summer camps in North Zealand on a beautiful farm in a rural setting.
I attended the Hatha yoga camp and quickly gained a new insight into the school's many facets, the people who worked there (teaching, cleaning, cooking, management, etc.) working for a higher purpose, selfless work in accordance with the universal will (karma yoga) and through this way of working, achieve inner peace, presence and a deep satisfaction with just the task one undertook at this moment. It fascinated me. I also met students from other places in the country where schools offer training sessions. A very inspiring summer camp altogether.
It kept me repeating the success next year, but this time in a deeper perspective. I and my girlfriend started to participate in the tantra summer retreat which was an incredibly beautiful and wonderful experience. Then we did karma yoga at the hatha yoga camp, where we helped to cook for the participants. It was a really good way to understand the deeper meaning of karma yoga and all the benefits it brings. In this way, I started to create more intimate relationships with others in school.
The years have passed and I have expanded my horizons with more courses, of which there are a wide range of the school, I have been a yoga teacher and I have moved in the ashram with my son enjoying playing with the other children who also live here. Yes, Natha has caused a huge personal development in my life and the inner journey that really only just begun ...
7nd year student:
I started studying in Natha yogacenter some 7 months ago, after transferring from another yoga school of the International Atman Federation.
I have found in this school wonderful teachers full of heart, and an environment which is very helpful for personal development. I was very happy to notice how friendly everybody are and how open they are to accept anyone as he is.
In the short time that I have been in this school I have learnt many things about myself and have been able, with the help of the teacher team of Natha and the teachings of this school, to resolve many personal problems with which I have been confronted for a long time. One of the most important lessons that I am learning here, is the lesson of love – never before have I realized how important it is to love and how every moment without love is a wasted moment, never to return again. With the help of the tantric teachings given in this school, I am gradually learning how to live life fully, with full participation and awareness. I am learning not to reject anything but to say yes to life. I feel that I am more alive now then ever before!
I learnt very much from yoga teacher Mihai Stoian, and I am leaning still. This process of learning is not limited only to the inside of the class-room: I have also learnt by observing his personal example, and on occasions by asking him for advice. When ever I had turned to him, he had always listened to me attentively and if I requested it, he would also advice me on the matter. He always insisted that I would make my own choices, so that I could learn from it. His advice was always full of insight and helped me to understand the issues and myself from a deeper perspective.
9nd year student:
I started 9 years ago as a student at Natha Yoga Center to participate in a weekly yoga class and the then theater group that was attached to the school. It enriched me a lot to learn methods of self-development and simultaneously to integrate the spiritual aspect creative with my interest in theater.
On the way I experienced being able to communicate some of the profound experiences I had through yoga and meditation, to other people.
I've always been interested in personal development, psychology, spirituality and creativity through art and theater. I saw that a deep part of myself was met through courses at Natha, which created a link between the understanding of the human structure and ways to develop it.
After a number of years where I had attended several courses through Natha, it dawned on me how much I had developed myself through yoga practice - and decided to take training as a yoga teacher, to pass on the amazing tools I had received.
I have been through what I have learned and practiced at Natha, become a more healthy, loving and deeply human. I have learned many techniques to keep the body healthy and brands effective results when using these. I have had many deep friendships among the people and colleagues I have met through Natha, and seeing that my relationships with friends and family in general has become deeper and better, because I am a more whole and happy person. I have much more energy, interest and sincere love to give to my surroundings and marks it as a clear result of the understanding and integration of them, as I have done over the years on Natha.
I am sincerely grateful for all that I have received through this school and the beautiful people and teachers I have met here - and would particularly mention Mihai and Adina Stoian as 2 beautiful teachers who give themselves wholeheartedly and manages to inspire and guide others in a way I never knew a human could. My life has been enriched through their educational and personal advice I have received through them.
I see them both as very committed, dedicated teachers who are doing their best to help others and they are also a wonderful example for me in a happy, spiritual relationships.
6st year student:
I have been a student in Natha Yogacenter for the last six years, and can truly say without any exaggeration, that receiving this valuable teachings and being a part of a genuine spiritual community completely changed my life, and the way I look upon life. Since I was a young teenager and until I started practicing yoga, I was living a very unstable life, with many parties and drugs. I was very restless, and was moving around all the time, starting different educations, which I never succeeded to finish. I was feeling very discontent with my life and my lifestyle, and I also had physical problems, because of too much smoking and other usage of drugs. Despite this I didn’t manage to break the negative pattern myself. On a vacation I was inspired to start practicing yoga, and when I came home I started to study in Natha Yogacenter. By receiving precious teachings about yoga, and actually practicing the things I was taught, I slowly started to transform.
I had already decided before starting yoga, that I would stop smoking, using drugs and drinking alcohol, but by practicing yoga, and being in a spiritual environment with people who where living a pure lifestyle (unlike my previous friends), this decision was much more supported, and unlike other previous attempts, this time I actually succeeded. Today I’m in the middle of two educations in the same time, doing well in both of them, and planning to finish in approx one year. I am very happy and healthy, and any health problems I may have had before, are completely gone now.
From the valuable teachings which I received during the years, the most precious for me has been to experience and being a part of place, where everybody is accepted like they are, a place with a lot of Love and happiness and a place for constant transformation. I have friends who started like shy insecure women, and now are beautiful mature women, with a lot of self-confidence. It’s really beautiful to see the ongoing transformation in people’s lives.
I just started the aspirant course for becoming a yoga teacher, and I hope that I one day will be able to inspire my students, like I myself have been, and still am constantly inspired by my teachers, to practice yoga, and in this being in a continuous transformation process.
12th year student:
I have been a member of Natha in 12 years, I enjoy fully my membership.
I have only positive experiences in Natha, I have learned the nature of love to know, both through friendships and close relationships. What I have learned through working with my sexual energy is very refined, caring, building for body, mind and spirit. We learn to work with the sexual energy in a conscious way, so it is not just an unconscious discharge of frustration, as is true for many people. I can only recommend people and especially the young people to come to our tantra classes so that they become more aware of how they spend their life energy, as the sexual energy course is.
9th year student:
Practicing and studying Yoga and Tantra in Natha has opened my eyes and my heart. I could write reams about my experiences in this school, but for now I just want to say…
One of the things I like most about Natha is its Tantra course which I’ve been following since its inception three years ago. Taught by the inspirational couple, Mihai and Adina Stoian, this course has broadened my perspective upon existence beyond anything I could have previously imagined. Every class brings me amazing revelations which help me to come closer and closer to the profound understanding of who I am and my life’s purpose. I feel the quality of these teachings is of the highest caliber and in my personal research on the topic I consider them to be incomparable. The tantric principles taught in this class have transformed my life for the better, enabling me to discover the amazing woman I am through the conscious embracing of my femininity. These inner transformations are very visible in the improvement of many aspects of my life, including relationships, health and personal happiness.
I’ve been a volunteer worker in Natha’s administration for the past four years, which has been a wonderful and fulfilling experience. Living in an ashram and working in the school helps me to integrate the spiritual teachings from the classes in my daily life and to live in the present moment!
I’ve recently watched my friends and colleagues build our beautiful new yoga centre against many odds, and in my eyes it’s a testament to the strength and greatness of this school, which I’m so grateful to be a part of. Writing these words warms my heart and re-ignites my aspiration for this spiritual path and my love for this wonderful school.
5th year student:
I have practiced yoga and tantra now for 5 years in Natha Yogacenter. If I look back in time I can hardly recognize the woman I was before I had the grace to become part of this spiritual community.
I had always interest and aspiration to learn the hidden secrets of the universe and to spiritualize my life. Nevertheless, I was not able to do this on my own, in spite of many attempts to practice different forms of yoga and to travel to India and to other exotic places in search of truth and deeper meaning to my life.
Since starting to practice yoga and tantra in Natha my life has become a continuous transformation, during which limitations of my personal structure, fears, complications and frustrations have gradually been replaced by health, happiness, joy, enthusiasm and deeper knowledge. Natha is an authentic spiritual school and is able to offer continuously practical methods for evolving as well as true spiritual support and guidance.
I am forever grateful for having such a spiritual teacher as Mihai Stoian. The light of his consciousness is shining so bright that it automatically dissolves misunderstanding and confusion. I have experienced this in relation to my own problems throughout all the years. Speaking with Mihai for only few minutes is often enough to overcome a problem that before seemed unbearable. He has the ability to put things into right perspective and to clearly point to the truth no matter what is the situation. His example is continuously inspiring me. My stable aspiration is to learn to love like he does.
I have continuously more control over my life and more freedom to choose my life to be the way I aspire. All the teachings of the school are leading towards spiritual understanding and evolution which implies by nature the growing of the freedom. Here I do not mean the apparent freedom of the limited ego structure of a human being, but the freedom of the spirit to love and know itself.
For me as a woman Tantra has been the salvation. Before learning about Tantra I was constantly faced with frustrations, tensions and lack of fulfillment in my erotic life. Tantra is the secret knowledge that makes lovemaking magic and sacred and has given me the method for complete erotic fulfillment. Even more, through Tantra we learn how to use the erotic fulfillment as a tool for spiritual fulfillment. This I consider to be a great contribution of Natha yoga school to all the women as well as men in our modern society.
19th year student:
I have been a member of Natha in 19 years. I have experienced being strengthened emotionally, mentally and spiritually through yoga.
I grew up in a home with abuse, yoga has strengthened me to break the patterns that my environmental heritage would have given me.
5th year student:
I’ve been practicing yoga for 5 years and I came to Natha yogacenter with the proposal to organize spiritual trance parties in which people can experience beneficial states of trance with the help of uplifting music and positive visuals and without the use of drugs and alcohol.
As a DJ and musician I have found support and inspiration in this school and my life has transformed for the better. I feel that in all the levels my life has improved and I’m very grateful for the support and the spiritual guidance.
6th year student:
Through yoga, I have found a peace in my heart, I have never imagined that to be possible.
The nature of woman is to bring into manifestation the impulse received from the man – the spark of consciousness.
Nowadays, woman tend to forget that it is in their nature to follow consciousness and to create the necessary environment for the seed to grow and blossom, and they are more focused on controlling the man, thus denying their own nature. In couple relationships, this tendency limits the beauty of manifested and shared true love and turns the relationship itself into a playground with strict rules which both lovers struggle to respect or to break, ending up bored, tired and unhappy. In order to grow, love needs a ground free of any limitations, where it can reveal its tremendous power, magnificence and beauty to those who share it, taking them to the heart of God. In this article we present you the first 15 fundamental differences between ignorant women, who keep looking for Prince Charming and yet are always alone, and the initiated women – initiated in tantra or in the mysteries of the transfiguring lovemaking, who know how to polarize the man they love, so that their relationship is a true embodiment of divine love.
1. Ignorant woman do not know what they want in life, they have no spiritual aspirations and do nothing in order to build a couple relationship, but they foolishly keep waiting for a man to call them. Initiated Tantric women have their own plans and aspirations and gracefully tell the man they value that he is welcomed to some activities where it is integrated that they participate together.
2. Once they finally found a man that shows interest to them, with whom they could build a couple relationship, ignorant women want to control him, suffocating the man in their life. Initiated women know the secrets of the art of fascination and maintain the chosen lover, so that “controlling” him becomes completely pointless.
3. Not having something better to do, the ignorant women systematically “check” the man who had not called them yet.
Initiated women are integrated with all their heart in spiritual activities, so that they do not become terrorized by the idea: “Oh, my God, he had not called me yet!”
4. Ignorant women desperately try to chain a man, using sexuality as an exchange product. Initiated woman know that only Tantric eroticism, based on sexual continence and sublimation, through its extraordinary transforming effects, always makes a man want to unite with that Tantric woman in a spiritual couple.
5. Ignorant women either fake pleasure grotesquely, believing that this is what is required and that it will bring them appreciation, or they silently wait for the man to finish what he does there, in his selfish and often animalistic way.
In such a situation, initiated women stop, get up and get dressed and full of playfulness suggest: “We either learn the secrets of Tantric lovemaking together, or I am not the one you are looking for.”
6. Ignorant women are terrified by the periods when they do not have a lover.
Initiated women transfigure this period as a valuable time in which they can make huge spiritual progress, merging directly with Shiva, the supreme lover.
7. Due to the resonance with inferior levels, ignorant women tend to ignore the so called “good guys” – beings who modestly choose beneficial resonances, but they do not make a big fuss about it - saying: “He cannot make me happy.”
Initiated women, full of transfiguration and courage, ignore only the so called “bad boys” – beings that display a state of masculinity – the macho men – which in fact has a gross orientation towards superficial and often demonic aspects, opposing any transformation.
8. Ignorant women can bring the man to a state of orgasm with discharge, in superficial adventures that lead only to frustrations and suffering.
Initiated women – especially in Tantra, can bring the man to the realization of the Supreme Self, through the spiritual evolution in couple based on love, respect, transfiguration and sexual continence.
9. Due to their gregarious orientation, ignorant women are always worried that they are not good enough or beautiful enough for a certain man.
Initiated women know how to value their qualities in the continuous process of Self Inquiry, so that they become very beautiful and very good for any man.
10. Ignorant woman, lacking self-confidence, desperately try to monopolize the entire time and attention of their man with all kind of demands and moods.
Initiated women realize that they can easily offer the space their lover needs in the process of polarization and in this way the time they spend together in a couple is even more pleasant and more special. (Tantric aphorism: The waiting increases the pleasure.)
11. Not knowing what a spiritual test is and looking only for the pleasure experienced in happy moments, ignorant women despise the man who is going through a difficult period, considering him weak.
Initiated women offer support and understanding also when the couple goes through hard times.
12. Ignorant women constantly ask to be understood, protected, and helped, and keep repeating this to their man, while they hardly offer him anything.
Initiated women create the magic of delicious intimacy, where the man will mutually and spontaneously share his understanding, love, attention, tenderness, protection within their loving united couple.
13. An ignorant woman believes that the suffering experienced in the relationship with a man is only his fault. Later on, she projects an imaginary fault on all the other men that will follow, as she believes they have to pay for the mistakes of the first one. This is the process that creates trauma.
Initiated Tantric women evolve fast, learning from all the experiences of life in the couple, whether they are good or bad.
14. Ignorant women, caught in the game of their own imagination, believe that they fall in love and then they madly hunt for the object of their affection, ignoring all the signals they receive and all aspects of reality which do not fit their precious illusions.
Initiated women do everything in an integrated spiritual way; they carefully pay attention to synchronicities and mysterious signs, so that they are not fooled by the game of desire and imagination when they fall in love.
15. Hearing these statements, ignorant women will either feel attacked and will aim to judge the messenger, ignoring the wisdom of the content, or they will be touched, will find themselves in some of these descriptions and, full of aspiration, they will start the process of initiation in order to become perfect Shaktis, thus fulfilling their destiny in this life.
Initiated women, Tantric or on any other path leading to supreme realization, continuing their evolution towards the state of perfect Shakti, will also tell others about these ideas, adding new ones of practical wisdom from their own experience.

Learning sexual continence is a kind of leitmotif in a couple relationship. It comes over and over again.
We cannot say that in a couple relationship we learn sexual continence, because it is not something that you learn once and that is it. It is something that becomes perfect, it is something that takes us to extraordinary experiences and we can say that in a couple relationship the two lovers must constantly learn and deepen the state of sexual continence. In this way we start learning better and better how to make the other one happy in many aspects, which we did not even suspect in the beginning.
Learning sexual continence has another clear effect – the game of polarities. In the couple relationship it is extremely important to manifest this game of polarities. It is one of the fundamental lessons of the couple relationships. When we make love with continence and we aim to have this state of continence and to make it perfect, we deepen the polarization in the couple. The man becomes more and more man and the woman becomes more and more woman. Through this subtle exchange between the two lovers, also the polar aspects within their being is awakened, thus they reach the state of androgyny.
Suppose we engage in a couple relationship and the man has a mediocre virility and the woman has a mediocre femininity, and after one year they notice they are almost at the same level, the aspect regarding sexual continence had stagnated. If, looking back, they notice that their state of masculinity and femininity has amplified a lot, this shows that their erotic game has a good sexual continence. They have improved it. It is very practical. The attraction between the two lovers is maintained if the difference of their potentials increases – he amplifies his masculinity and she amplifies her femininity. This is done by deepening sexual continence. If we consider this properly, we can attract miracles, even if not from the beginning, because at the beginning things are new, we are overwhelmed of so many wonderful elements. If we continue to improve our sexual continence, the miracles will appear in time – we will notice that after 5 years the attraction between us is much stronger then in the beginning. After 10 years, the attraction is infinitely stronger then in the beginning. There is a huge difference of potential that increases very much, it is visible. If we do not keep ourselves in a continuous state of perfecting sexual continence, we should not be surprised that after a few years, according to the level we started, the attraction begins to diminish.
The orgasmic ability of the couple is extremely important.
Usually, masculine continence is reduced to avoiding ejaculation. This is only the first step in being continent. It is a fundamental step, because without avoiding the discharge we cannot even talk about continence, but continence implies the ability of the two lovers to experience both individually as well as together, states of cosmic orgasm, of ecstasy, by experiencing that beneficial creative void that manifests in very special moment of hiatus in the moment of orgasm. This is very important, because, especially men know this, there is not the required clarity to deepen continence completely – meaning, men’s orgasmic capacity to experience repetitively the state of sublime cosmic orgasm without discharge.
Men usually say that they like it very much, they like it when their lover has orgasm and they feel her expansion: “I am happy to give her this happiness”. As Grieg says: “The ultimate happiness of the tantric is to make his lover extremely happy and the ultimate happiness of the tantric woman is to make her lover happy.” Personal practice is very important and avoiding ejaculation without the ability to improve continence so that there is the possibility to experience the multiple orgasm, or the orgasm on the higher chakras or the cosmic orgasm is a beginning stage and does not represent a progress regarding sexual continence. The dangers are great in this direction, especially in the case of man. Without realising, they become nostalgic for the states they once had and which now they do not find anymore.
This is an illusion, when they say that now they preserve their energy, but as long as these subconscious impurities grow and are fed with the frustrations of the man that never reaches a state of orgasm, not comparable to the state of orgasm he had before, but even bigger, much stronger and more fulfilling, all these states of unconscious frustrations will nourish specific dissatisfactions, which the respective man has in his subconscious and which can be different. They can amplify lack of self-confidence, low self-esteem, stupid ideas such as: tantra is not so good, let the man who actually has 100 orgasms speak, all my friends are the same and in our men talk we conclude that yes, it is very good, we make love for 2-3-5-7 hours, but we do not reach the state of orgasm and everybody is happy with the possibility that ejaculation is avoided. This is extremely necessary, ejaculation must be suspended completely, but it is very important that both lovers reach these truly fundamental states.

Love does not belong to anybody, it is divine. It comes from God and it is for God only, manifested in the Created Universe.
One of the most important aspects, if we want to find our ideal lover, the one to complete us and to make our heart happy and fulfilled, is the complete transformation of the negative mind patterns that we maintain.
All those who complain about not finding the right lover have a negative idea in their subconscious mind regarding the couple relationship. In most situations, it is a prior traumatizing experience. Look into yourself and realize that if you lack self-confidence, if you think you do not deserve it, that there is so much in you to transform, that now you have a difficult period, etc., this is the projection you emit mentally and you will receive an answer to this projection.If the couple relationship is important for you, then give it the proper importance. It might seem simple, but it is amazing how little time people spend for the things that really matter for their hearts and how much time they waste with all kind of aspects that prove to be useless. If the couple relationship is important for us, we must focus and learn about it. Then, we must apply as often as possible this knowledge about the couple relationship, until the desired results appear and even then we must keep going, always applying these revelations until we obtain the superior states of consciousness and, further on, until we reach perfection. That is why it very important, as soon as we notice or when we hear ourselves complaining that we did not yet find the ideal lover, to first of all ask ourselves: “Is this important for me?” And if the answer is yes, then we must see if we really give it the adequate importance.Usually, this problem is approached in two inferior ways: women start complaining to their friends about the couple relationship or they start making plans about a future couple relationship. Men take it seriously in the moments of crisis or they use it as a way of relaxation after the well justified efforts of life, as if the couple relationship is somewhere in the chapter: relaxation, good time. Ideally, we should start looking for the perfect lover with all our heart and being, but we use these situations, because they are very frequent. We should not fool ourselves when we have a problem.Learning the mechanisms of the couple relationship means to give it enough attention. An extremely important note: The attention we give to the relationship is not the same with the attention we give to the effects of the couple relationship. In other words, spending more time with our lover in front of the TV, without noticing that this diminishes drastically the couple polarization is a waste of time, without focusing on the relationship itself. So, if we have the feeling we give some time to the couple relationship, but in fact we just waste time in the couple relationship, this is not a way of giving attention in the couple relationship. This is why we must be conscious that giving attention to the couple relationship is different then giving attention to the effects of the couple relationship. The effects of the couple relationship are: we feel good with each other, we have beautiful experiences, even extraordinary sometimes, but the relationship itself is the one that allows, that brings us in the situation of having those experiences. Pay attention to the relationship, not to the effects. Become aware of the effects, both the positive and also the less positive ones – in this way we mark the way. This is fundamental. But do not mistake the attention we give to the effects with the attention we give to the relationship.We must give it the necessary priority at the right moment. There are certain moments which are very favourable for the development of the couple relationship, moments in which we can make progresses, or moments of hiatus in the relationship, in which we have to bring energy consciously. If in those moments we indulge into consuming the relationship over and over again and we focus only on the effects, then we lose important moments and of course we are not ready when tests appear. In this way, the relationship can regress.Another important aspect for finding our ideal lover is to engage in the game of polarities in order to create the necessary attraction. As long as we are a man mediocre in our virility, we will attract a woman mediocre in her femininity. The same goes the other way around. So, the first step is to look at ourselves and to see how we are.For example, from the point of view of polarity, if we want as our lover a being with an increased state of polarity… for example, if we are a woman that wishes to have an extremely virile lover, we have to look and see, to become aware of our state of femininity, if it matches the man we want to attract. If, as a man, we want to have an extremely feminine lover, we have to look first of all at ourselves. Ultimately, this game of polarities works implacably. We will always attract the man or the woman that polarizes us best. This does not mean that he or she is the best, it means it is exactly our polar opposite. Therefore, when we want to find our tantric lover, we have to consider this game of polarities, in order to create the necessary attraction.Taken from "The spiritual couple relationship", conference kept by Mihai and Adina Stoian in 2006, in Costinesti - Romania.Published by Natha.net
by Gregorian Bivolaru
This article was conceived by YOGA teacher Gregorian Bivolaru as a present for all the affectionate, intelligent, sensual and refined women who aspire to awaken the state of SHAKTI within them. This gift of knowledge of the Mysteries of the Eternal Feminine is offered to them with love and admiration on the occasion of the day of 8 March.
1. „Women in which the state of shakti is awaken are but mere shadows of the Great Mother (MAHA_SHAKTI), and the Great Mother (MAHA SHAKTI) is forever the mysterious shadow of God the Father (BRAHMAN)." - YONI TANTRA
2. „I am afraid to lose you, therefore I always keep you present and I embrace you in my heart. What is this fascinating magic that has given me this wonderful treasure of the world, which is you for me, to hold in my fragile arms?" - RABINDRANATH TAGORE
3. „Women in which the state of Shakti is more and more awaken will be and will remain the women of the future.” - GREGORIAN BIVOLARU
4. „If the Great Mother (MAHA-SHAKTI) had not existed in eternity together with God the Father ( DUMNEZEU), being forever intimately and completely united in the love with His Absolute Essence (PARAMATMAN) and with His Omnipotent Will, remaining in an endless state of divine orgasm of the neverending creation (ANANDA), then nothing and nobody would have existed beforehand into eternity. Had it been so, nothing and nobody would have existed afterwards into eternity. At the same time, we must become aware of the fact that, had it been so, then the entire univers (MACROCOSM)would not exist and also we, people would not exist. In such a situation, which we can imagine and presume only to show the absurdity of it, we should at the same time be absolutely sure that nothing and nobody were to exist in the future and nothing would continue to exist in eternity. If absolutely nobody (including us, people) had existed and had not have the consciousness of self existance (which allows us to become aware that: "I think, therefore I exist"), then it would have been impossible to know that God exists." - GREGORIAN BIVOLARU
In the tradition of the oriental wisdom, the SUPREME ABSOLUTE (BRAHMAN or GOD THE FATHER) has His mysterious FEMININE HALF that is also considered as being His feminine manifesting Nature, which is known in the Orient by the name of MAHA SHAKTI. As one also knows in the Christian tradition, GOD the FATHER manifests Himself and creates everything by means of his mysterious feminine power, which is the HOLY GHOST.
The fact that both in the oriental millenary tradition and in the Western Christian millenary tradition one notices the presence of a mysterious feminine manifesting Nature by means of which God creates the entire MACROCOSM is not at all an accident. In the oriental tradition, MAHA SHAKTI or the Eternal Feminine Nature actually represents GOD’S FEMININE MANIFESTING POWER, by means of which the entire Creation (the entire MACROCOSM or, in other words, the MYSTERIOUS WHOLE), which is made of the three universes (The Physical, the Astral and the Causal Universe) is born and maintained.
GOD THE FATHER ceaselessly manifests His almightiness and manifests All and everything there is only by means of MAHA SHAKTI. MAHA SHAKTI is always the one in and by whom the OMNIPOTENT WILL OF GOD THE FATHER (BRAHMAN) manifests Itself. It is not at all by accident that in the oriental tradition all the gods, without exception, such as BRAHMA, VISHNU or SHIVA each have one or more feminine manifesting natures, which are also their lovers. Each of these lovers that they worship also represents for each of them HIS FEMININE MANIFESTING NATURE. However, by looking beyond the appearances, one can say that these lovers of the gods are in fact their SHAKTI-s, by means of whom they manifest their omnipotent divine will. The SHAKTI-s of the gods represent the FEMININE POWERS OF THEIR ENIGMATIC NATURES that make a perfect mysterious unity together with them. In absence of these feminine manifesting natures (SHAKTI-s) or, in other words, in absence of these FEMININE MANIFESTING POWERS OF THEIR DIVINE NATURES (that is characteristic in the case of each god), they would not be supernaturally endowed and would not be able to manifest any absolutely extraordinary divine power, also being incapable of exerting any miraculous, beneficial, occult power.
In light of these revelations, we can realize that the enigmatic and almighty will of these gods can efficiently manifest itself only by means of their feminine manifesting forces that are intimately united with them (in all their spheres of existence and manifestation that characterize them). Besides, this perfect union is often depicted in the oriental tradition by means of the divine amorous couple that is represented as being united in an uninterrupted amorous communion in the classical tantric posture YAB-YUM.
In absence of one or more SHAKTI-s by means of which the gods ceaselessly manifest their will, their mysterious spiritual influences and their divine occult power, any one of these gods would be - analogically speaking - just like a stiff, inert and powerless corpse. In absence of the presence of SHAKTI, who allows him to plenarily manifest, by means of his feminine manifesting nature, the god would be, analogically speaking, just like a paralyzed body. This ancient secret oriental teaching was known by the great initiates and it is expressed by a classical dictum in a certain ancient tantric treatise: “SHIVA without SHAKTI is SHAVA (a stiff and powerless corpse). SHAKTI without SHIVA is KALILA (meaningless existence, confusion, chaos), KACHAKULAM (larval-ness, refuse, upheaval of values) and MAYA (illusion, disorder, entropy).”
Especially in the Orient, the huge importance of the FEMININE MANIFESTING POWER (SHAKTI), by means of which the entire creation appears and is maintained and in the absence of which NOTHING CAN BE MANIFESTED, is known for thousands of years by the great sages. As we have previously mentioned, in the Christian tradition GOD the FATHER is also permanently assisted, in the process of creating and manifesting ALL and EVERYTHING that has been, which is or will be, by the MYSTERIOUS FEMININE MANIFESTING POWER OF THE HOLY GHOST (which, as we have previously mentioned, is known in the oriental tradition by the name of MAHA SHAKTI or THE GREAT MOTHER THAT-GIVES-BIRTH-TO-EVERYTHING), in and by means of which everything, without exception, appears in the Creation of GOD THE FATHER.
In the millenary tradition of the Orient one often mentions that the entire MACROCOSM in which the three universes simultaneously exist (the Physical-material Universe, the Astral Universe and the Causal Universe) is manifested entirely by means of MAHA SHAKTI. The entire MACROCOSM, without exception was “born” and is ceaselessly maintained by means of MAHA SHAKTI. The great initiates know that the MACROCOSM in its wholeness actually represents the work of MAHA SHAKTI. The MACROCOSM was manifested as an expression of the ALMIGHTY WILL of God the Father (BRAHMAN). The great initiates of the TANTRA YOGA millenary system specified in certain secret treatises that in fact the entire MACROCOSM is the “FRUIT” or, in other words, “THE MAGICAL CHILD” that was born from the MAHA YONI (the gigantic birth-giving matrix) of the GREAT MOTHER (MAHA SHAKTI), which originally manifested the entire creation. In light of this revelation, we can understand why the advanced tantric adepts worship the YONI of the beloved woman and look upon it in a transfiguring manner as being the correspondence in the woman’s body of MAHA SHAKTI’S MAHA YONI.
The deeply transfiguring and full of adoration vision of the body and being of the beloved woman allows the advanced adepts of the TANTRA system to thus enter into a mysterious state of communion with MAHA SHAKTI, who eternally exists, being intimately united with the Almighty, enigmatic spirit. By means of MAHA SHAKTI, the omnipotent will of GOD THE FATHER manifests itself. The intuition of these fundamental spiritual mysteries also allows us to understand the millenary and deeply transfiguring vision of the LINGAM as being the expression of SHIVA’s perfectly erect phallus that is and remains in this way due to the fact that SHIVA is perfectly continent. In turn, the cult of the YONI (the woman’s matrix) actually represents the transfiguring vision of MAHA SHAKTI’S MAHA YONI from which the entire MACROCOSM was born. Such a mysterious, deeply transfiguring, sublimely spiritual vision of the beloved woman’s body allows the tantric to gradually discover (by means of this vision) a mysterious unity between the beloved being’s MICROCOSM, in which the body is an important component part of it, and the MACROCOSM in which the physical Universe is an important part of it.
However, it is obvious that only the human beings who have a high spiritual realization are capable of intuiting the mysterious, grandiose reality that exists beyond these symbolical representations that contain a multitude of significances. The initiated tantrics state that the woman’s body presents an extraordinary complexity and when it is regarded from a certain viewpoint it reveals itself as being much more complex. Among others, the woman’s body proves to be superior to the man’s body due to the fact that the woman’s body has certain distinct characteristics that are unique compared to the man’s body. For example, the woman’s body contains, not at all by accident, 12 distinct openings (among these distinct openings that are extra in the case of the woman’s body we mention the cervix, the urethra and the orifices of the nipples that are constantly active in the woman. By means of the nipples, certain mysterious feminine fluids are manifested in and through the woman’s body). Compared to the woman’s body, the man’s body contains only nine distinct openings (in the man’s case, the orifices of the nipples are not open and active at all). There are still other differences that only the woman’s body has, which we will not mention here. In the case of the woman’s body, all these differences point out her superiority, which only the women who manage to fully awaken the state of SHAKTI become aware of and appreciate at its just value.
Among others differences that the tantrics know, we also mention the one that the woman is capable of experiencing over 20 distinct forms of orgasm, while the man is not capable of experiencing such a range of orgasms precisely due to the fact that his body does not have the same complexity as the woman’s body.
Another utterly extraordinary capacity that is innate and that the woman has and can manifest at any time is the possibility of immediately practicing amorous continence, with a great ease, without requiring a previous training, as it is required for the man.
Another quite extraordinary capacity that the woman spontaneously manifests is entering and maintaining for very long periods of time in various states of orgasm that can be extended for hours in a row, uninterruptedly. When one practices amorous continence extraordinarily well, the woman can easily attain states of cosmic orgasm (such states are ecstatic states of overwhelming, profound and very intense orgasm, even if this concept in itself generates the despise of the cretins who mock that which they were never actually capable of experiencing). Another extraordinary capacity is also that the body of the woman who is erotically awakened and becomes aware of certain mysterious energies that are manifested in his body (by triggering certain processes of occult resonance with the endless spheres of power from the MACROCOSM) make the respective woman easily manifest various alchemical processes that are triggered inside her YONI. A fascinating and mysterious process of this kind is the appearance and materialization of the so-called KALAS inside her YONI, when the woman experiences intense and overwhelming states of orgasm without discharge.
Another mysterious process is the integral transmutation into energy of the specific sexual secretions that, when they are not transmuted into energy and sublimed, they trigger menstruation. By means of such an achievement (the suspending of the menstruation due to the transmutation of her sexual potential into energy), the woman will have at her disposal a huge inner energy that she can direct and focus to the various floors of her inner universe by means of a harmonious sublimation. We hope that by means of these revelations, the intelligent and intuitive women who will read these lines will manage to realize that the privilege of being a woman is neither an exclusivity nor a seduction argument, but among others this implies one to become aware of its advantages as being a stringent necessity. This discovery is achieved in a gradual manner, as the woman more and more awakens and activates this fabulous potential that is revealed to her when she becomes fully aware of her state of SHAKTI.
Here is how these fundamental occult aspects are described in a famous secret tantric treaty: “THE ENDLESS FEMININE MANIFESTING POWER (MAHA SHAKTI) is actually the mysterious force that manifests and supports the entire universe. She (MAHA SHAKTI) is the one who gave birth, from her gigantic MAHA YONI and brought to light the great WHOLE of the UNIVERSE (MACROCOSM). The Great WHOLE of the Universe (MACROCOSM) is in fact the NECESSARY FORM that She (MAHA SHAKTI) has offered to it in its origin. MAHA SHAKTI is ceaselessly the fundament and the manifesting energy of both the three worlds as well as of all the parallel worlds that exist in the ASTRAL UNIVERSE. MAHA SHAKTI is the one who created and manifested the TEN COSMIC POWERS (DASHA MAHA VIDYA) who by her means (of MAHA SHAKTI) thus became an expression of the ALMIGHTY WILL of BRAHMAN (GOD the FATHER); the Great Woman (MAHA SHAKTI) is and remains the unsuspected force that manifests and supports the entire Universe (MACROCOSM).
“The entire Universe (MACROCOSM) is His form (MAHA SHAKTI’S). The Great Woman (MAHA SHAKTI) is the mysterious fundament of this world and of all the worlds. No world and no universe exist in absence of her support. In the physical world, the form of the woman’s body is a perfect form. Any form that MAHA SHAKTI assumes, either masculine (VIRILE) or feminine is actually her supreme mysterious form. In the universe of each woman’s being, there exists - either in an activated (awakened) or latent state - everything that is inspirited, both in this world and in the other mysterious worlds that exist beyond it.
For the one who worships her and is capable of discovering her in her entire splendor - except the Immortal Supreme Self (ATMAN) - there is no jewelry superior to the woman. For the one who is capable of discovering her beyond the appearances, as well as for the woman who realizes these fabulous endowments through Self-knowledge, there is not, there was not and there never will be a destiny equal to that of the woman.
There is no kingdom, there is no asceticism that might be compared to everything that can be offered by the fully awakened mirific universe of the woman, when she is properly worshiped and transfigured. Except the Immortal Supreme Self (ATMAN) there is not, there was not and there never will be a holy place that might be comparable to the universe of the woman’s being. No matter how hard we looked, we cannot discover a prayer that is similar to the perfectly natural, ecstatic prayer that the woman spontaneously manifests when she attains the perfect state of orgasm (it is unanimously known by the initiated men that when women attain ample and deep states of orgasm without discharge they spontaneously have the tendency of firmly focusing their eyesight towards the top of the head area, at the level of the essential center of force SAHASRARA, which as we know allows the human being’s reconnection to GOD the FATHER (our note)).
There is not, there was not and there never will be a modality or another spiritual exercise that is similar to what the woman’s perfectly activated body and the woman’s fully activated universe can offer. There is no MANTRA, there is no TAPAS that can equal the multitude of treasures that can be revealed by the mysterious universe of the woman’s being. There is no richness, no matter how big it were, that might be compared to the universe of the woman’s being. There is not, there was not, and there never will be a greater pleasure, a more overwhelming joy than the one that we can discover in and through the body and the universe of the woman’s being. He who avidly worships her easily discovers, eventually, with the woman’s help, the mysterious existence of BRAHMAN (GOD the FATHER) with whom the woman is ceaselessly and mysteriously united, even when she does not suspect this. Without the help of the manifesting power (SHAKTI) even the gods have no force and in her absence (SHAKTI’s) they cannot act.”
In light of the fundamental revelations that are offered to us by means of the above quote, we can easily realize that the two polarly opposite, complementary aspects, respectively the masculine and the feminine, the YANG (+) and the YIN (-) aspects are actually the two principles that are manifested by the Eternal Feminine (MAHA SHAKTI). About GOD THE FATHER who manifests everything by means His Almighty Will only with the help of the Eternal Feminine (MAHA SHAKTI), one can say that He is actually neutral and transcendent. In the frame of the universe (the MACROCOSM) that is manifested by the GREAT MOTHER (MAHA SHAKTI), the masculine and the feminine, the YANG and the YIN are the polarly opposite principles that govern the Universe, also assuring its coherence and unity. In the frame of this universe (MACROCOSM) that was originally manifested by the GREAT MOTHER (MAHA SHAKTI), the YANG and the YIN, the masculine and the feminine are not two states that oppose and make war with each other, but are actually two phases (one is positive and the other one is negative) of the alternance of the same movement.
Under certain conditions that are known by the initiates, the masculine is the expression of a progressive transformation of the feminine or, in other words, of the transformation of YIN into YANG, and the feminine is the expression of the progressive transformation of the masculine or, in other words, the expression of the transformation of YANG into YIN. In this way, one can say that the two polarly opposite energies complete each other and form a perfect Unity. The masculine and the feminine, the YANG and the YIN, are an antithetic and at the same time perfectly united couple that exists in one of the most complete communions. The YANG, masculine aspect represents action, exteriorization, expansion, the north, fire, the plenitude of life, the sharp musical notes, the sun, the day, the summer, dynamism, the warm aspect. The YIN, feminine represents interiorizing, intuition, passivity, receptivity, the south, water, low-pitched notes in music, the moon, the night, humidity, winter, repose, cold.
The famous classical representation of the masculine and the feminine, the YANG and the YIN is based on a circle (that symbolizes the Primordial Unique) that is divided into two component aspects. This symbolical representation contains a white part (man, +, YANG) and a black part (woman, -, YIN) in order to express the state of mutual dependency of the two halves; we discover a small black circle (the kernel of the feminine) that exists in the white part (the man) and a small white circle (the kernel of the feminine) that exists in the black part (woman). In the frame of each pole one positions the focus point of the opposite force that represents the mysterious germ of transformation. At the same time, this allows us to understand the mystery of the glorious androgynous state that each being is called to attain, even if for now he does not realize this unconscious aspiration.
Among others, this symbolism reminds us that in the entire manifestation nothing is ever completely feminine or completely masculine and that the feminine (YIN) and masculine (YANG) forces cannot actually exist without one another. The glorious androgynous state allows the human being who attains it by means of certain fundamental inner transformations, to access a clearly superior psychomental and spiritual state of autonomy. In the frame of this state (the glorious androgynous state) in which he simultaneously exists in a constant state of balance in which the feminine (YIN) and masculine (YANG) aspects are equally captured in his inner universe, there no longer exists a masculine preponderance or a feminine preponderance, which is characteristic in the case of ordinary human beings (that for now have not attained this clearly superior state that is known by the name of the glorious androgynous state).
The separation of the masculine principle from the feminine principle does not generate the disappearance of the mysterious logic that requires them to be complementary. If we attentively and lucidly analyze them, we discover that a feminine part and a masculine part exist and vibrate in each of us, even when we do not suspect this. The aspect that predominates thus determines the general polarity of our being and makes us be a man or a woman. In reality, there is no sort of antagonism between the two poles, but only an interpenetration, a reciprocity, a mixture, a deep-most fusion. All these generate within us desires, passions, aspirations and determine us to act in order to awaken and realize this in our inner universe.
The masculine (YANG) aspect and the feminine (YIN) aspect are distinct, precise vibrating tonalities that are also in full symbiosis. Both the masculine and the feminine permanently feed each other, stringently need each other. Both the force in the case of the feminine nature, as well as the force in the case of the masculine nature appears by the assimilation of the opposite, complementary polarity. Man stringently needs the feminine energy in order to become polarized and to thus become a triumphing force. In turn, the woman needs the complementary masculine energy in order to thus also become a triumphing force. Under certain conditions, which are known by the initiates, it is possible to much more quickly awaken the glorious androgynous state both in the woman and in the man. Then, the woman also has the inner man awakened within her, and the man has the inner woman awakened within him. This state also generates the gradual appearance and activation of certain paranormal powers (SIDDHI-s).
Both the feminine and the masculine symbolize the aspect of a single and the same reality, which is the mysterious reality of MAHA SHAKTI. The masculine and the feminine, the YANG and the YIN are each a factor of multiplication and even of apparent divergence. At the same time, they are each a factor of fusion, reintegration, power, happiness, pleasure, health, love, full unity. The state of balance in which they are always comes from the harmony and the frenzy of their interaction and it is in close connection with the duration of this interaction, which thus offers to the other person the accumulation of the mysterious energy that each of the two need.
In the case of the amorous games that are based on perfect continence, transfiguration and love, this interaction between the two lovers can be fully satisfying, plenarily harmonious and this attracts with itself extraordinary states of happiness and even allows the attainment of extraordinary states of beatitude. In the case of human beings who do not perform amorous games with continence, transfiguration and love, the energetic exchanges with the other and the interaction between the two lovers are superficial, with a short duration, un-satisfying, incomplete, and for this reason they give birth to frustrations, tensions, discontents and even a deaf fight. The initiates know that the conjugated action of the two complementary mysterious forces, namely the masculine (YANG) force and the feminine (YIN) force, supports and regulates the life of people and the echoes of this interaction exist and are mirrored in the animal and vegetal kingdom. This polar game is present in the entire Universe and exists everywhere there is life. From the union of the two polar complementary energies, there appears force, happiness, pleasure, balance and the supreme harmony.
About the various mysterious exchanges and relationships that exist between the masculine (YANG, +) and the feminine aspect (YIN, -)
1. The apparent opposition
In the entire nature, almost every phenomenon presents two distinct aspects. These aspects are characteristic both regarding the movement of the stars, like for instance the Sun and the Moon as well as regarding the cyclic manifestation of seasons, of day and night, of waxing and waning. The state of unity appears or, in other words, is created by means of the apparent opposition of these two polarly opposite and complementary aspects that are contradictory at first sight.
2. The interdependence
Paradoxically, these two polarly opposite forces (the masculine, YANG - the feminine, YIN) are interdependent. They absolutely require the presence of one or the other of the two complementary polarities in order to individually exist.
3. Waxing and waning
The masculine (YANG, +) and the feminine (YIN, -) wax and wan alternatively. This mysterious movement maintains a balance that is relatively favorable for the two energies (that are the masculine and the feminine energies, respectively). This ceaseless coming-and-going is at the origin of life and of each state of dynamic balance.
4. Mutual transformation
In certain conditions that are known by the initiates, such as for instance the frantic, sublimely passionate amorous fusions, which are performed with continence (thus triggering the biological transmutation of the sexual physical potential into energy and the sublimation of the resulting energy at various superior levels of the being) the masculine (YANG, +, solar) and the feminine (YIN, -, lunar) can integrally transform into one another. In this way, one can say that the masculine becomes feminine, and the feminine becomes masculine, the YIN becomes YANG, the YANG becomes YIN, the plus becomes minus, the minus becomes plus, the solar becomes lunar, the lunar becomes solar. In this way, a deep, quick transformation appears, a revival occurs and surprising overturns of certain situations can occur. In this way, amazing mutations and unexpected qualitative leaps may appear.
What is happening nowadays
For more than 5000 years, the so-called predominant “divine” vision on this planet is totally a vision of an attitude that is full of superiority of men towards women. Either they consider GOD THE FATHER as being an infinite spiritual reality, or they consider Him as a “SUPREME INTELLIGENCE”, or they consider Him an ALMIGHTY WILL, or they consider Him as being the Supreme Absolute, nowadays both men and women make all these rhyme in the masculine gender and in this way both men and women thus commit a fundamental error.
The great sages of this planet have known and even nowadays know that GOD THE FATHER is not masculine, but neutral. In the mysterious process of the manifestation of everything that exists, GOD THE FATHER the neutral, un-manifested and transcendent has created and manifested all that exists, all that has a form with the help and by means of the Feminine Eternal. This Eternal Feminine is MAHA SHAKTI or the Great Mother in the Orient. In the Christian tradition, the Great Mother is the HOLLY GHOST. Just for very well understanding this fundamental mystery, the advanced practitioners of the millenary system TANTRA YOGA have looked upon the woman with wisdom and have long discovered that she is the perfect expression of MAHA SHAKTI, by whose frantic worship one can thus easily discover GOD the FATHER that is intimately united in eternity with the Manifesting Feminine Aspect (the Eternal Feminine) by means of whom His Omnipotent Will makes everything appear in the entire creation (with the help of the Eternal Feminine).
The woman’s microcosm is in a mysterious communion and connection with the Eternal Feminine MAHASHAKTI. More than that, a whole range of scientific discoveries have nowadays already pointed out that actually it is not the woman who resulted from a “rib” of the man, but in fact the process was exactly the opposite. In fact, it was man who resulted from a sui generis partial adaptation that was achieved starting from the woman’s much more complex body. In other words, the woman did not result from the man, but it is man who resulted from the woman. The advanced practitioners of the TANTRA system have discovered this important mystery thousands of years ago. For this reason, they have objectively appreciated the woman at her just value and worshiped her on the basis of a deep knowledge of this mysterious reality.
The millenary SHAKTA system is a living proof of this discovery of the superiority of her body and microcosm. Besides, the knowledge of this fundamental truth was something common and natural several thousands of years ago. This explains why the feminine element was often and fully deified in all the cultures that are nowadays pejoratively considered as being “PAGAN”. In immemorial times, the woman was given the importance that she deserved (IN THE HYPOSTASIS OF INITIATING WOMAN) for the very reason of this fundamental revelation.
The cult of the Great Mother (MAHASHAKTI) or of the Great Mother Goddess that is in close connection with life, agriculture, fecundity, abundance of crops, with the mysteries of lovemaking with continence, with the extraordinary potentialities that the woman has (including that of practicing amorous continence with a surprising ease) persisted for a very long time, but at a certain point the WOMAN started to be little by little dethroned by the so-called IDEAL MASCULINE archetype that was and is in close connection with virility, with conquests, with courage and with force.
The death of the cultures in which one properly worshiped the “GREAT MOTHER OF THE WORLD” (which in reality is MAHA SHAKTI) gave birth to a patriarchal social order, in which men have subjected the woman to their despotic authority. For this reason, little by little the statute of the woman deteriorated. The ancient temples that were consecrated to the Mother Goddess were destroyed and in their place one built others that were consecrated to a masculine deity. In this way, the gigantic Eve (MAHA SHAKTI) who gave birth to humanity changed her statute and thus Eve was unanimously considered to have become the stupid and insubordinate woman, the evil temptress.
The peak of this downfall of the woman’s condition was reached when one got to affirm that in fact women do not have a soul and are not human. Nowadays, we know that Paul the apostle pleaded with vivid vehemence for the complete subordination of women to men. In the 6th century, theologians have gotten to wonder whether women had a soul or not. During the Middle Ages, women were often considered in a false and aberrant way as being disgusting creatures that had relationships with the devil. The inquisition indulged in an unprecedented witch-hunt. All these aspects are all the more bizarre if we consider that in the Genesis one mentions that the human being, in other words both woman and man, was created by GOD THE FATHER as an adrogyne, or in other words both man and woman at the same time.
In the millenary TANTRA YOGA system, through the gradual awakening and activation of the state of SHAKTI, the woman thus becomes aware of a series of extraordinary potentialities, which most often lie asleep within her, being unsuspected. It is true that the treatment to which the woman was subjected for thousands of years after the end of the matriarchal period, made her regress very much. For thousands of years the woman was repeatedly told that she is “stupid”, “incapable”, “inferior”, “powerless”, etc. Given the fact that any lie that is ceaselessly repeated eventually ends by becoming a so-called “truth”, the woman little by little got to be convinced and believe all the evils that she was almost ceaselessly repeatedly told by the ignorant, despotic, egotistic, insensitive, avid for power, dominating and possessive men that moreover falsely had the impression that they are clearly superior to her. In this way, the regress occurred, by the assimilation by the woman of this false, unshakable beliefs. This state of fact makes that nowadays the women’s subconscious be most often clogged by aberrantly false convictions, such as: “the woman is inferior”, "the woman can never succeed what the man can”, “the woman has only flaws and no qualities”, “the woman has no sort of extraordinary endowments compared to those of the man”.
In light of these revelations, it is obvious that the discovery of lovemaking with continence by a very large number of women will contribute to the appearance of a genuine revolution concerning the awakening and activation of the fabulous potentialities that exist in the microcosm of every woman who aspires to awaken the state of SHAKTI within her. For this, the initiated women (WHO SHOULD BECOME INITIATING WOMEN AS SOON AS POSSIBLE) should become aware that mostly they are the ones who can teach lovemaking with continence to men.
The clear superiority of the woman concerning the achievement of amorous fusions with continence is an essential trump in the process of awakening the fabulous potentialities that are asleep in every woman who aspires to awaken the state of SHAKTI within her.
Aphorisms and cogitations
1. Any ordinary man who loves a single woman, most often actually loves two women, without realizing. One of them is the respective woman that really exists, and the other is a creation of his imagination.
2. The woman is not wholesome. The woman in which the state of Shakti awakens more and more begins to be wholesome.
3. The man who never forgives the small flaws of the woman that he loves will never properly rejoice in her great qualities.
4. When GOD THE FATHER wants to do something extraordinarily important, He hides this for the eyes of men. The initiates already know that when GOD wants to do something extraordinarily important, He resorts to the help of a woman who is already prepared to manifest that which He wants to do.
5. When a woman fully awakens the state of SHAKTI (feminine power of nature), she shortly thereafter becomes a SUI GENERIS bridge between two universes, the Physical Universe and the Astral Universe.
6. In the Book of Revelation, there is a prophetic quote that can be interpreted in the meaning that in the near future the woman will start to become aware at a planetary level of her latent fabulous potentialities. Thus, in this way, she will get to gradually awaken the state of COSMIC WOMAN, which implies the equal awakening in her own inner universe of all the twelve zodiacal constellations. This awakening can be easily achieved by means of the amorous games with continence, transfiguration and consecration. We offer you this significant quote from the Book of Revelation: “And there appeared a great wonder in heaven: a Woman! She was clothed with the sun, and the moon was under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars (o.n. this is a significant allusion to the 12 zodiacal constellations)” - Revelation (XII.1).
7. If man and woman were not polarly opposite and complimentary, undoubtedly that it would have been a great standstill if they were identical. In order for energy to appear and amplify in each of them, that is why for that reason they were conceived as polarly opposite and complimentary. If woman and man were not how they are and they were identical, then a great standstill would have appeared on the Earth. When the earth is flat, the water does not flow but stagnates. If the water did not flow, the earth would have been sterile.
8. For a woman who has discovered how wonderful and fulfilling is to give as much love as possible, it is not difficult to give love. For such a woman it is difficult not to give love without measure, each time.
9. It is not at all difficult to allow yourself awakened and overwhelmed by sublime states and aspirations when you love frantically, and the stars pour their mysterious energies into your open being.
10. The woman who more and more awakens the state of SHAKTI also makes important steps in order to thus become a complete being.
11. Every woman lives and focuses her sensuality in tight connection with her temper.
12. As the woman begins to more and more amply and deeply awaken the state of SHAKTI, she also thusly discovers that she has a spiritual origin that she did not even suspect before.
13. The arrow gets far and reaches its target if the bow is strong. The clouds move fast, when the wind blows constantly and powerfully. In the same way, the success of the man is directly proportional with the occult energy of his worshipped woman and with all the qualities of his lover.
14. The woman who has awakened the state of SHAKTI thus becomes aware that in and through her being one manifests that supreme and burning feminine force that makes the sparks of life gush out in ceaseless showers. She often feels that she is that indescribable divine substance that gushes out in mirific showers of colors when she admires the beauty of nature. She intuitively feels that she is in an indescribable way the charming glitter of water. She ineffably feels that she exists in the subtle breath of everything that lives. She feels that she breathes in unison with the grass, with the flowers and with the trees. When she admires the waters that flow just like living beings, she simultaneously feels that she flows in unison with them. When the colossal and beneficial feminine force of the GREAT MOTHER (MAHA SHAKTI) fully manifests itself through her, she feels that she is among the FUNDAMENTAL COLUMNS that support the entire Earth... She feels that all these mirific phenomena that surround her live in unison with her, because she is in them and they are in her. Often, when she is in nature, she feels that she is one with the secret spring of their life. She feels that she is the wisdom of GOD. When the explosion of thunder that belongs to the creative verb of all things manifests itself, she intuits that that creative sound is herself. Sometimes, she feels that she exists dilated in immensity in all beings, supporting them in order for them not to die. When she frantically makes love, she feels that she is the mysterious life that exists in all and everything.
15. A bridge is that which allows us to pass from one shore to another. When the bridge crumbles, the shores exist, yet there is no more communication and no more passage. This occurs when the woman is unaware of her purpose in this world.
She is the feminine force of the tensed bow
That is in the process of launching the arrow.
She is the unsuspected bridge,
She is the movement of the KUNDALINI energy
From CHAKRA to CHAKRA.
She is the apparent stillness of
She is the sign and the symbol
Who speaks only to those capable of understanding her.
She is the mother, the sister, the lover and the mistress.
She is all that is present in the manifestation.
She knows all paths,
Even those that lead to the subterranean worlds.
She leads us to the center
On the secret pathways of the labyrinths.
She knows the mysterious Name
That opens the gate of knowledge.
She helps us uplift ourselves
From the depths of the tenebrous
And catapults us into the divine light.
The great majority of men
Have not yet discovered
Her mirific heavenly splendor.
When she makes her
Appear in its entire splendor
Men run terrified
Of this essential
I am always the same
That I have always been
In the beginnings
When the world was stumbling.
I patiently wait
To be rediscovered.
When the reign of the
Warrior men, incapable of discovering me
Will come to an end.
17. The state of force of a SHAKTI
In the Tarot, Blade no. 11, which evokes the Force, symbolizes the colossal power of femininity. For a SHAKTI, this power becomes capable of taming and dominating animality. The mysterious force of the fascinating woman who has fully awakened the state of SHAKTI is unlimited because in this way she connects herself to an endless sphere of force that exists in the MACROCOSM. The lion that has strong paws is right near her. The strong and powerful mouth of the lion is now opened with the help of the gentle hands of the woman who has awakened the state of SHAKTI. The lion has strong fangs, but it will yet be unable to bite the woman who has awakened the state of SHAKTI, because she maintains its mouth open and the lion cannot resist her. The woman who has awakened the state of SHAKTI manages to do this without effort. Her mysterious force that she manifests is of such a nature for the woman who has awakened the state of SHAKTI that it is a game to subjugate the mighty lion and to ceaselessly keep it under her irresistible influence. What is the nature of this mysterious force, superior even to the strongest of the animals, the lion? This force, which defeats everything and to which nothing resists is the mysterious force of SHAKTI that is undoubtedly the strongest force in the world. In the mysterious force of a SHAKTI, love is also present. Love is the endless mysterious energy that comes from GOD and leads us towards Unity. When the force of measureless love manifests itself in the human, he gets to love the entire universe. For this reason, the woman in whom the state of SHAKTI awakens feels one with everything that exists and has a new life. In the being of a woman who has awakened the state of SHAKTI, love is the strongest force in the world. For a SHAKTI, love is life, love is the food of her being. For a woman who has awakened the state of SHAKTI, love is GOD the eternal.
18. By loving without measure the beings of opposite sex who deserve our love, transfiguring them, involving in amorous games with continence, it is very good to go to the end on the spiritual path on which all our sublime aspirations are fulfilled. Especially then, the woman becomes capable of materializing by means of her manifesting nature the divine aspirations of the man. In turn, the man resorts to the help of the woman’s colossal creative power and, in this way, he is catapulted into the divine light. When in the end they attain the glorious androgynous state, they go together and have equal forces. In an opposite case, if the woman does not ascend, then she destroys the man. In turn, if the man does not fully awaken within him the Kingdom of the Heavenly Father, then he loses her.
19. The plenary awakening of the SHAKTI state by a very large number of women will thus generate the appearance of the superior woman of the future on this planet.
19. In order to awaken the state of SHAKTI, the woman should be, amongst others, thirsty for freedom; she should courageously explore her mysteries and, being very attentive at what she discovers, she should not disperse herself.
THE MYSTERIES OF THE STATE OF SHAKTI
An ancient folkloric proverb says: “Behind every famous man there always exists a great and strong woman”. In the case of the divine, heroic and perfectly continent men, like SHIVA or KRISHNA, it is well known that behind them there were a lot of extraordinary women, such as PARVATI or RADHA, who have completely awakened the state of SHAKTI with the help of their formidable masculine, virile power (VIRYA), which as one knows is one of the six legendary attributes of ISHVARA. For example, it is nowadays well known that one of the legendary achievements of the god KRISHNA was when he simultaneously made love with continence and transfiguration with the 10000 shepherd women among whom was RADHA (who subsequently became his famous lover). Concerning SHIVA, one also knows that he also had many lovers in whom he awakened the state of SHAKTI following the frantic amorous games that were always performed with continence and transfiguration.
The LINGAM that is worshipped in INDIA as a legendary symbol of SHIVA actually illustrates in a very clear and eloquent manner SHIVA’S STATE OF PERFECT CONTINENCE. The PERFECT AMOROUS CONTINENCE allows the one who attains it to amorously unite with his lover endlessly, without ejaculating. In this way, the man is endowed with an utterly extraordinary vitality, being able to make love with his worshipped woman for no matter how long, amorously satisfying her in a plenary and profound manner. All women are perfectly endowed in a native manner from God in order to practice amorous games with continence. Women can easily attain overwhelming states of ORGASM without DISCHARGE in which they can remain for hours in a row. When they have a LARGE EROTIC ENERGY and they frantically amorously fuse with a man who is perfectly continent, they can even attain EXTRAORDINARY STATES OF COSMIC ORGASM and even have the possibility of experiencing certain forms of DIVINE ECSTASY (SAMADHI). In this YOGA school, there are many exceptionally endowed women who have often attained such extraordinary amorous states that are in tight connection with what one calls SACRED MYSTICAL EROTICISM in the frame of the TANTRA system.
The path of the sacred eroticism allows the two lovers who make love only with continence, transfiguration and consecration to thus discover GOD. This is something natural and possible if we consider, before all, that GOD IS LOVE, AND WHERE THERE IS LOVE GOD IS ALSO PRESENT.
By acting in this manner, the two lovers who frantically and measureless worship each other simultaneously combine the necessity to spiritually transform with pleasure, joy, divine happiness and amorous ecstasy. The initiates know that such amorous games that are full of freedom and frantic (that are also analogical mirrorings of the mysterious DIVINE game (LILA) of GOD) are at the same time: TAPAS; BRAHMACHARYA; KARMA YOGA; TANTRA YOGA; KUNDALINI YOGA; RAJA YOGA; LAYA YOGA; BIOLOGICAL TRANSMUTATION OF THE CREATIVE-SEXUAL POTENTIAL INTO ENERGY; THE SUBLIMATION OF THE HUGE RESULTING ENERGIES TO THE SUPERIOR LEVELS OF THE BEING; HATHA YOGA; THE GRADUAL ACTIVATION OF THE SUBTLE FORCE CENTERS (CHAKRA); THE PROGRESSIVE AWAKENING OF THE ANDROGYNOUS STATE; SAMADHI YOGA; SACRED EROTICISM; INNER ALCHEMY; THE AWAKENING OF EMPATHY AND TELEPATHIC ABILITIES; HAPPINESS; COMPLETE AND PROFOUND EROTIC POLARIZATION; NATURAL HEALING OF CERTAIN AFFECTIONS OR DISTURBANCES; REGENERATION; BODILY AND PSYCHO-MENTAL HARMONIZATION; THE ANNIHILATION AND BURNING OF STRESSES; THE HEALING OF THE AFFECTIVE TRAUMAS; EUPHORIC SELF-KNOWLEDGE; MULTIPLE AND VARIED ORGASMS THAT DO NOT DEPLETE US; THE INTOXICATING EXPANSION OF CONSCIOUSNESS FROM FINITE TO INFINITE; DELICIOUS STATES OF AMOROUS TRANCE; THE AWAKENING OR AMPLIFICATION OF THE JOY OF LIVING; CONSTANT ACCUMULATION OF OJAS; ETC. ETC.
