Yoga Can Help Fight that Middle Age Bulge

First let's define "regular Yoga practice." Regular Yoga practice is practicing Yoga for at least 30 minutes one time a week for four or more years. Yoga practice can help those people that are middle age, lose weight, and keep it off.

The Yoga exercise is not enough to lose weight. What Yoga does, is make you more aware of your body. It helps to respond to what your body is telling you. When you're more sensitive to your body, you can easily recognize the fact that you are full. You are more attuned to what your body has to tell you and gives you the will power to stay from the unhealthy food you crave.

Body awareness is a big factor in the practice of Yoga. The practice of Yoga helps you to listen to your body, focus on your body, blocking out external sights and sounds. You grow accustomed to a little discomfort while working on the postures and that in turn, helps you to fight the discomfort you feel when you crave unhealthy food. Yoga can allow your body to reject the junk food and welcome the food that's good for you.

Here are some tips for those who want to use Yoga for weight maintenance or weight loss.
1. Practice in a room without mirrors. This will force you to pay attention to what is happening inside of you instead of how well you are doing your Yoga postures.
2. As you are practicing, learn to feel even the subtlest of movements. Become involved and curious about these micro-movements.
3. When you are practicing your poses, find a position where you are challenged but don't allow yourself to become overwhelmed. When you are at this edge between challenges and overwhelmed, practice keeping a clear, open and accepting state of mind.
4. Go easy on yourself; if you're overworked give yourself permission to rest.
5. Self-talk while practicing Yoga is very important. Be sure to say nice comments to yourself, complimenting your inner self with your efforts and your goodness over all.
6. If you belong to a Yoga class, go early, talk to people. Allow yourself to be open to those around you.
7. Take your own mat to class with you. You will find it's more comfortable when you are using the mat you are familiar with.
8. Find a teacher who teaches with a balance of firmness and gentleness and who inspires you to progress to a higher level.
9. Realize just by going to the class, you are making a statement that you are taking care of yourself and you have the courage to make the changes in your life, which will allow you to reach your dearest dream.
10. The development of qualities like patience, wisdom, kindness, discipline, and gratitude comes form your practice of Yoga. Yoga helps you create a quiet and gentle mind.

Challenging and rewarding and help with weight loss and control. Control your cravings and allow your body to desire healthy food and learning self-control, is the secret to your weight control Yoga routine.

Tantra Shuns Nothing, Judges Nothing
Feb 18th, 2011 by Aldouspi

Tantra Shuns Nothing, Judges Nothing

Although it is an integral part of the Vedic scriptures, ancient tantra is not a religion. This is precisely because tantra asks us to dive consciously and unreservedly into the very temptations that religions ask us to shun.

As any good tantra teacher will tell you, tantra does not ask us to shun anything the heart wants. Rather, it states that temptations should leave us over time. This happens once we realize that they have no greater use than momentary satiation. Once the body, the mind and the heart have had enough, they will stop responding to temptation.

What Tantra does require is a state of happiness – a state we achieve by overcoming the restrictions we have imposed on ourselves by accepting them in our lives, and by walking down those very paths to overthrow them. Tantra picks you up like a baby and makes a man or a woman out of you.

Why would you want your desires to leave you? Because they are of no real value in your life, and hinder your progress to higher levels of consciousness.

Tantra shuns and judges nothing, and nothing is taboo or black or white. There is only good, and more good. Some things have greater goodness than others, but there is nothing that Tantra considers bad. It asks nothing from its followers except that they desire true happiness and accept and receive its precepts without pre-judgment.

When your consciousness unfolds at the hands of a tantra master, you are like a newborn who opens his eyes for the first time and takes in all the shapes, colours and objects around him. He does not judge; he merely observes, and is happy and excited by it all.

This is why many children have spontaneous spiritual experiences which gradually reduce in frequency and intensity as they grow older and conform to the mechanics of contemporary society. There is no conflict between the conscious and the subconscious in a child’s mind. He does what he wants to and does it with a supreme lack of guilt, inhibition or hesitation. This is the very essence of sacred tantra.

Look into the eyes of a child and see the innocence, the wonder and the happiness in them. He is happy in every moment. His mind and being are ensconced within that moment itself. His soul does not judge, just accepts. He does not believe in bartering like adults do – rather, he gives and receives just for the pleasure of giving and receiving. He gives when he wants to and he is equally happy to receive.

This kind of free happiness, when experienced in the act of making love, is called tantra sex. Most of us go through the motions of life without actually living it, much as we scratch a boil simply because it is itching. A tantra master can teach you to live life to the hilt, immersed in its moments, whether good or not-so-good, loving everything and everybody around you and judging nothing.

The precepts of ancient tantra state that it is only when we do not project any negativity that negativity leaves us. Under a qualified tantra teacher, you can learn how to be master of your life - to shape it into what you want it to be. We have forgotten the child within us and become a part of a knee-jerk society. We filter out things that we perceive as irrelevant to our scheme of things, thereby ignoring the bigger picture.

When you learn tantra, you will begin to see everything with the boundless pleasure of a new-born baby. Tantra believes that the core energy that rules the world – the source of every creation – is feminine energy. You can learn to harness that energy and use it to make vast changes in your own as well as others’ lives. Tantra is not a quick-fix solution for nirvana – you need to prepare for a journey that will last your entire lifetime -and several more to come.

Can We Attain Charmananda – The Eternal Orgasm?
Jun 19th, 2010 by Aldouspi

tantra eternal orgasm

Ancient Tantra Concept - Charmananda - The Eternal Orgasm
By Acharya Subhojit Dasgupta

Tantra teaches us that desire is all-pervasive - that it exists in us, at all times. Whether we indulge in it or suppress it constantly, few of us understand it.

While Gautama Buddha said that desire is suffering., a tantra master will extrapolate on this thought thus - to desire is to suffer, but only when you do not know how to desire.

A tantra teacher believes in the goodness of desire and affirms its importance. In today's world, where the social, economical and political milieu demands that we keep up with the Joneses or get morally battered by them, it is important to pursue our desires. However, we must do so intelligently, resourcefully and esoterically. An accomplished tantra master can show the right way to pursue your desires.

When you learn tantra, you learn to understand your desires, rather than deny or suppress them. You must allow your desires to reach the very peak of their urgency, before satiating them.

Tantra propounds that desire, in itself, is not a sin. There is no such thing as shameful desire - however, the intention behind that desire may be sinful and shameful for mortal beings.

Tantra teaches us that everyone and everything exists in this world for a reason. To find our purpose is our life's primary objective - the next is to fulfill it. Living, without understanding our purpose, is futile.

Desires are integral to our being. To deny them is to deny a large part of our essential being.

Life is meant to be a celebration - and enjoyment. This state of blissful celebration is what Tantra calls 'Charmananda' (the eternal orgasm). Yes, this sounds extravagant and perhaps even impossible, but tantra brings it within reach.

However, you can only attain Charmananada, if you practice tantra diligently under the expert guidance of an accomplished tantra teacher.

Why do so few attain this heavenly state that ancient tantra can transport us to? The reason is sad, yet simple - most of those who begin to learn tantra fall by the wayside, because they cannot reconcile their esoteric practices in their daily lives.

However, relentless and expertly guided pursuit of tantra precepts and practices can help you incorporate your new found knowledge into mainstream life, thereby transforming your life into a continuous explosion of Charmananda.

Desire is not evil. Everything in life is worth acquiring, provided that we understand the desired object's rightful place in our life. Understanding the right way to cater to and fulfill our desires is vital.

Ironically, though we have all the technological conveniences of modern life, we have lost the essence of life itself. Our ancestors had a firm grasp on this essence. When you practice tantra, it will help you rediscover your rightful love for life!
