    The term "tantrism" is a construct of Western scholarship, not a concept of the spiritual system itself. Tāntrikas (practitioners of Tantra) did not attempt to define Tantra as a whole; instead, the Tantric dimension of each South Asian religion had its own name:

    • Tantric Shaivism was known to its practitioners as the Mantramārga.
    • Shaktism is practically synonymous and parallel with Tantra, known to its native practitioners as "Kula marga" or "Kaula".
    • Tantric Buddhism has the indigenous name of the Vajrayana.
    • Tantric Vaishnavism was known as the Pancharatra.

    Yet today, searching Google for the term “Tantric Love”, just to research what is out there, and what I found as No.1 result. 8 Tantric Sex Positions - Tantra Tips and Ideas - Cosmopolitan and the content within. “Cosmo came up with a list of tantric sex positions to tempt, tease, then thoroughly please. Grab your guy and get ready for a trip toward erotic enlightenment.” This is how the neo-tantra westerners perceive Tantra to be, which has nothing to do with traditional Tantric Scriptures, but that which is from Kama Sutra.

    Sage Vatsyayana who observed strict celibacy composed the Kama Sutra. It has therefore not been out of passionate motive, but that which came out of deep thinking or his imagination, and his one purpose is that of merely guiding other men and women. It is not an experiential guided teaching.

    Google also goes on to list escort services as Tantric sites. When I searched the term Tantra, the first 4 sites was about Tantra and the other were all on Tantric Sex.

    Tantra is a way of life, and I agree that sex plays a small part in our lives, yet it is the most popular topic since the 60s.

    Tantra, also called Tantrism and Tantric spiritual path, is an ancient Hindu tradition of science of Mantra, meditation and ritual practices that seeks to resonate with the divine energy of the macrocosm or godhead within the human microcosm, in order to attain siddhis and moksha.

    The first step to attain siddhis state is to balance the male and female energy within, in other words our inner sexuality, yet what the Neo-Tantra of the west like to term as sexual LOVE. Exploring better Sex would not give you spiritual orgasm, but the SEXUAL UNION between awaken soul can experience spiritual orgasm. For this experience to be constantly possible, the Divine Feminine and Masculine within has to be awakened. It is a traditional practice of Tantrika in all the South Asian region to first work on, to awaken the Divine Feminine and Masculine within before going on to experience DIVINE UNION or SEXUAL UNION.

    In the west MOST try to approach the union between the sexes via sexual gymnastic by taking part of Sage Vatsyayana teachings.

    ParaTan Inner Sakthi Yoga is a teaching that focuses on the inner journey that all Sages used to awaken the Divine Feminine (Sakthi) and Masculine (Shiva) within. Should you feel that you deserve to enjoy spiritual union with yourself, and then go on to experience the same with your partner, then ParaTan Inner Sakthi Yoga is for you!!
