Patanjali's Yoga Sutras

Patanjali's Yoga Sutras is a text that covers many aspects of life, beginning with a code of conduct and ending with the goal of yoga, a vision of one's true Self. The Pantajali'sYoga Sutras is probably the most authoritative text on yoga. It defines yoga as a focusing of the attention to whatever object is being contemplated to the exclusion of all others. Yoga isn't only about postures, or meditation, it is a way of life, or religion. In this influencing scripture there are eight steps to awakening or enlightenment through yoga. These eight astanga or limbs of yoga are: yamas, niyamas, asanas, pranayama, pratyahara, dharana, dhyana, and samadhi.

The yamas consist of lessons in moral and social conduct in our environment. It teaches us to restrain from lying, stealing, and greed. Non-violence and consideration toward all living things is the key. Communication with sensitivity towards others and moderation in all things we do is revered.

The niyama focuses on attitudes towards ourselves: compromising, cleanliness, serenity, devotion, and asceticism. One should study and reverence to a higher intelligence. There is an acceptance of our limitations in relation to God. It is key to have removed the impurities from the mind and body.

In the asanas, one focuses on posture practice, positioning the body while incorporating the breath to achieve a greater awareness in the mind. One is alert and relaxed without tension, while observing the reactions of the body and breath to various postures. This minimizes the effect of the external influences on the body, such as diet and climate.

Pranayama, or the restraint and control of the breath, helps with concentration, energizing and balancing of the mind and body.

Pratyahara is the relaxation of the senses, where no distractions actually activate the mind.

Dharana, or concentration, is the ability to direct the mind toward a chosen object and focus in on it alone.

Dhyana, or meditation, is the ability to develop focused interactions with what we seek to understand.

Lastly, but most importantly, Samadhi is the ultimate state of Self-realization, or union with the Source.

Bhairav Tantra And The Tantric Wisdom Sutras

Bhairav Tantra And The Tantric Wisdom Sutras

Bhairav Tantra encompasses several facets of our life. It prescribes a systematic conduct for structuring our learning of Tantra techniques, and on achieving reunion with Supreme Consciousness. In instructing you on Bhairav Tantra, your Tantra teacher aims to help you realize your true Self by focusing your attention to any physical or non-physical object. You will then meditate on this object to the exclusion of everything else.

The art of Tantra is not just about a bunch of postures or meditative techniques; ancient Tantra is, in fact, a way of sadhana or self-realization. Bhairav Tantra addresses the eight steps to awakening or Nirvana, as authoritatively declared by Rishi Patanjali. The eight astangas or subdivisions of awakening our inner consciousness through Tantra practices are yamas, niyamas, asanas, pranayamas, pratyahara, dharana, dhyana, and samadhi.

The Tantric yamas teach us conscientious and interpersonal behavior. While instructing you in these, your Tantra teacher will direct you to avoid untruthfulness, thieving and avarice. Ahimsa (or non-violence and kindness towards all living beings) is the first step towards self-realization. Communicating what is right and moderation in all the Tantra sadhanas is revered and sublime.

The Tantric niyamas teach us what inner values we should have towards ourselves: flexibility, cleanliness, peacefulness, devotedness and austerity. They teach us to always abide by discipline and accept the Supreme Intelligence that exists beyond ourselves, and to accept our limitations in relation to this Supreme Intelligence (or God).

In the Tantric asanas, the Tantra master has us focus on Tantra posture practice session, aligning the body and integrating tantric breath to attain higher consciousness of mind, body and soul. The mind needs to be conscious and at ease, without stress, and must be able to observe the responses of the body and breath to varied Tantra positions. These minimise the dietary and climatic influences on the body.

Pranayama in Tantra is highly advanced in its restraint and control of the tantric breath, dynamically stimulating and balancing our mind and body.

Pratyahara through Tantra is the relaxation of our sensory faculties so that nothing can disturb or unfocus the mind.

Tantra Dharana is the power to channel the mind towards a preferred objective and center in on that exclusively.

Tantra Dhyana (or meditation) is the power to evolve concentrated interactions on what we attempt to realize in Tantra.

Finally, Tantric Samadhi constitutes the supreme state of Self-realization in Tantra.

Tantra Yoni Massage in 8 Easy Steps

What is Tantra Yoni Massage? Yoni is the Sanskrit word for vagina and a tantric yoni massage is a method in which the yoni is pleasured & massaged from a perspective of love and respect.

The purpose of this massage is not to achieve orgasm (though it can and does happen as a welcome side effect) it is more about learning to give and receive, trust, intimacy, relaxation, pleasure, bonding and enjoyment.

This technique can be used by sex therapists and specialist massage therapists to assist women to break through sexual blockages or trauma.

How to give a Tantra Yoni Massage

Step 1 - Preparation - It is recommended that the receiver empty her bladder prior top starting, to prevent any discomfort. Then have her lie on her back with pillows under knees, hips and the head to allow her to see her partner and what is happening. This massage can be done on a bed, massage table or wherever you can be relaxed and comfortable.

Step 2 - Breathing - Deep, relaxed and slow breathing by both the giver and receiver is important prior and throughout the massage. The giver should remind the receiver at any stage, if she stops or starts shallow breathing - this can be done by breathing loudly rather than talking.

Step 3 - The Massage - Sitting in-between the receivers legs use a high quality oil (try to avoid aromatherapy oils) warmed to body temperature under hot water. Begin massaging the stomach, breasts, legs and thighs using long continuous flowing and circular strokes. This allows the receiver to relax more and the giver to explore and enjoy the touch and feel. Try to maintain eye contact as much as possible to make the connection deeper.

Step 4 - Yoni Massage - Pour a little oil on the mound above the yoni so that it drips down and covers both sides. Slowly and gently is the key, begin to massage the mound and outside of the yoni. Using the thumb and index finger of the right hand, softly squeeze the outer lips one at a time and slide up and down the length. Watching each other's eyes to gauge any adjustments or repetitions to increase the pleasure. Tune into the receiver, watching for all visual signs which will guide you, keep talking to a minimum or preferably none at all.

Step 5 - The Crown Jewel - Using the thumb and index finger gently stroke the clitoris using clockwise and anti clockwise circles, and squeeze gently. Watch the breathing, deep long breaths. Using the middle finger with the palm facing up, softly and slowly massage, nurture, relax and explore the inside of the yoni.

Step 6 - The G-spot - This can be found by crooking the middle finger back toward the palm. Just under the pubic bone you will feel a spongy area of tissue. Watching the eyes of the receiver, vary movements, speed and pressure to maximize pleasure.

Step 7 - Total Pleasure - The finger between the pinky and middle finger can also be inserted to increase stimulation. The thumb can be used to massage the clitoris and outside the yoni. The pinky can be used to gently massage around the anus (watch for visual signs whether or not to continue with this). At the same time use the left hand to massage the abdomen and breasts using gentle flowing loving strokes. All the while looking into each others eyes and slow breathing. Emotional release can sometimes occur, be gentle and keep breathing.

Step 8 - Finishing Off - Respectfully, slowly and gently remove your hands and when she is ready hold each other in a loving embrace.

Tantra yoni massage is just one technique used for total sexual pleasure. To discover more secrets of sacred sex and greatly improve your sex life whether single, attached or married please check out The Home Tantra Course.
