Summary: Definition of Tantra. Tantra (Sanskrit:), also called Tantrism and Tantric religion, is an ancient Indian tradition of beliefs and meditation and ritual practices that seeks to channel the divine energy of the macrocosm or godhead into the human microcosm, to attain siddhis and moksha. It arose no later than the 5th century CE, and it had a strong influence on both Hinduism and Buddhism.  For mor info see - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tantra

The beauty and wisdom of Tantra is that it enhances sexuality as a doorway to the “ecstatic mind of great bliss”. Truly, at the peak of orgasm, we pierce through the illusion of fragmentation and separation, and glimpse the unity and interconnectedness of all beings. And through the other–our partner–we fall in love with life. 
~ Margot Anand


Sexual energy is the primal and creative energy of the universe. All things that are alive come from sexual energy. In animals and other life forms, sexual energy expresses itself as biological creativity. In humans, sexual energy can be creative at all levels – physical, emotional and spiritual. In any situation, where we feel attraction, arousal, awakening, alertness, passion, interest, inspiration, excitement, creativity, enthusiasm, in each of these situations, sexual energy is at work. Whenever we feel these states of awareness, we must put our attention on the energy that we are experiencing, nourishing it with our attention, experiencing it with joy and keeping it alive in our awareness.
~ Deepak Chopra


Tantra relaxes the body, opens the heart and brings the mind into clear focus
~ Margot Anand


The feeling of being alive and at One with everything is available through the path of Tantra. When your heart is open and you are making love, there is no separation between you, your partner and God. This is healing sex. This is connecting with the Divine. And the important thing to develop is the sense that this sacred experience is available in all instants. It is not limited to sex.
~ Philip Smith


These seven centers, these seven chakras Yoga and Tantra have talked about down the ages, are nothing but five knots in your body electric current. They can be changed; they can be rearranged. They can be given a new shape, form. Two lovers can be transformed so deeply that all their seven centers can start meeting.
~ Rajneesh


Our biological body itself is a form of hardware that needs re-programming through tantra like a new spiritual software which can release or unblock its potential.
~ Slavoj Žižek


Tantra is the science of transforming ordinary lovers into soul mates. And that is the grandeur of Tantra. It can transform the whole earth; it can transform each couple into soul mates.
~ Rajneesh


“Surrender is an essential aspect of the learning process in Tantra.”
~ Margot Anand


“Tantric path teaches us to embrace and unify the ordinary, the erotic, and the sacred dimensions of life, all of which have their roots in Spirit.”
~ Margot Anand


“Tantra challenges the belief promoted by most spiritual and religious paths that we must suppress or transcend out sexuality to practice meditation or awaken our Spirit.”
~ Margot Anand


Samsara-our conditioned existence in the perpetual cycle of habitual tendencies and nirvana - genuine freedom from such an existence- are nothing but different manifestations of a basic continuum. So this continuity of consciousness us always present. This is the meaning of tantra.
~ Dalai Lama


In your body, there exists a subtle current of electricity, very subtle. But the subtler it is, the deeper it goes. It is not very visible. Scientists say that all the electricity that is in your body, if put together, can be used to light a five-candle bulb. It is not much. Quantitatively it is not much, quantitatively the atom is not much, but qualitatively... If it explodes, it has tremendous energy in it.
~ Rajneesh


It is the movement between the negative and positive poles that creates electricity. It is the attraction between the male and the female that creates new life. The dynamics of the universe are dialectical, apparently in a conflict, but occurring within a larger context of unity and wholeness. This is the understanding of the Tantra vision.
~ Margot Anand


Tantra is the hot blood of spiritual practice. It smashes the taboo against unreasonable happiness; a thunderbolt path, swift, joyful, and fierce. There is no authentic Tantra without profound commitment, discipline, courage, and a sense of wild, foolhardy, fearless abandon.
~ Chogyam Trungpa


Tantra is for a person who has reached a point in their spiritual evolution where everything looks the same.
~ Frederick Lenz


Music is part of the tantra, the dance of life. Before your eyes, before your awareness, is the procession of eternity.
~ Frederick Lenz


Tantra is for someone who practices all the paths because all the paths encompass tantra.
~ Frederick Lenz


A unifying factor between the different traditions and lineages of Tantra, is that it is feminine in nature. It acknowledges the feminine as the basis from which all the practices spring. Therefore, Tantra is by its nature, the understanding that all phenomenal existence, the universe, or cosmos, that we experience is feminine in nature.
~ Zeena Schreck


Tantra is for extremists, but balanced extremists.
~ Frederick Lenz


Tantra involves radical change, a change in states of awareness.
~ Frederick Lenz


Tantra is for the advanced spiritual practitioner who is ready to push aside spiritual practice in the name of spiritual practice.
~ Frederick Lenz


Lovers have known sometimes what saints have not known.
~ Rajneesh


Tantra is quicker; but for some people it can be spiritually disastrous.
~ Frederick Lenz


In tantra we have complete faith in the winds of eternity. The key to tantra yoga is to feel that you are not the doer, that you cannot possibly act. All you have to do in life is to accept.
~ Frederick Lenz


It´s time we saw sex as the truly sacred art that it is. A deep meditation, a holy communion and a dance with the force of creation.
~ Marcus Allen


If you think that material success will bring you happiness, relationships, people, places, things, fame, fortune, you definitely should not practice tantra.
~ Frederick Lenz


Tantra says be real, be authentic to yourself. Your happiness is not bad; it is good. It is not sin! Only sadness is sin, only to be miserable is sin. To be happy is virtue because a happy person will not create unhappiness for others. Only a happy person can be a ground for others' happiness.
~ Rajneesh


The basic assumption of tantra is that God not only exists in the superconscious, God also exists in the lowest forms of existence.
~ Frederick Lenz


When? At this time, while you have all the opportunities, if you do not do your best to achieve the pure, stainless path to enlightenment when will you do it? If you don't meditate, don't practise the graduated path to enlightenment, especially bodhicitta, in this life, then when? When will you practise? When will you have this realization? If, in this life, you don't achieve renunciation, bodhicitta and sunyata, as well as the two stages of tantra, when will you? When will you have these attainments? When will you become enlightened? When will you perform perfect work for sentient beings?
~ Thubten Zopa Rinpoche


If you wait for your natural soul mate to meet with you, it will be just like waiting for lightning with which to read your Bible. And you will not be able to read much either. For a moment it is there, and by the time you have opened the Bible it is gone.
~ Rajneesh


There is the path of karma, selfless action, the path of love and devotion, the path of training the mind and the path of Yoga, mantra and tantra this is what the various saints advocated.
~ Mata Amritanandamayi


The Dali Lama and other notable Buddhist teachers have now indicated that since the world has plunged into a dark age, the information available in the tantras, which include the very, very powerful Kundalini release techniques, should be made available to the public.
~ Frederick Lenz


What Brahman is cannot be described. All things in the world — the Vedas, the Puranas, the Tantras, the six systems of philosophy — have been defiled, like food that has been touched by the tongue, for they have been read or uttered by the tongue. Only one thing has not been defiled in this way, and that is Brahman. No one has ever been able to say what Brahman is.
~ Ramakrishna


Now, tantra is a little bit different than other forms of Buddhism because in tantra what we do is we use the sensorial worlds as access points or pathways to ineffability.
~ Frederick Lenz


Trust, love, what we call sexy, who we trust in a business situation, are all based on how open we are. Openness is bodily openness, muscular relaxation, heart openness as opposed to hiding behind some emotional wall, and spiritual openness, which is actually feeling so fully into the moment that there's no separation between you and the entire moment.
~ David Deida


I don't want to overstate tantra because I'm sure there are scumbags everywhere, but it seems like it's an ideology that actually respects female desire.
~ Naomi Wolf


Tantra and adventure are very, very connected. Perhaps the greatest enemy for one who's journeying along the spiritual path is complacency.
~ Frederick Lenz


In tantra one does not seek experiences that most people would consider unspiritual and try to see truth in them. In tantra we don't try to guide our life in a specific way. We let the winds of existence blow us where they will.
~ Frederick Lenz


The tantras can be very confusing for a person who is new to Buddhism, and for several thousand years the rule was not to expose a person or a new monk to the tantras until they had practiced for many, many years.
~ Frederick Lenz


Tantra is only recommended for someone who has a very developed will power, a terrific sense of humor, and a sense that nothing else matters but God and self-realization.
~ Frederick Lenz


Tantra is for the person who has self control but doesn't care anymore. It is for the person who is able to abandon self-control and its fixation.
~ Frederick Lenz


The tantras are ancient sacred books of India and Tibet. The tantras detail specific means for attaining liberation.
~ Frederick Lenz


Tantra is for the desperate. Unless you've really experienced pain and suffering, tantra won't work. Unless you've really experienced exultation and ecstasy, tantra won't work.
~ Frederick Lenz


Tantra is the left-handing path, meaning it is the road less taken.
~ Frederick Lenz

Tantra has to do with the reconciliation of opposites. All the yogas recommend that you avoid certain experiences. In tantra there is no avoidance.
~ Frederick Lenz


Tantra means the avoidance of a set or defined form of spirituality. Tantra is intuitive self-discovery.
~ Frederick Lenz


Success, failure, pain, small furry animals, household products, freeways, Star Wars systems - all are interlinked in the dance of tantra, the disco of the mind, the ballroom of cosmic consciousness.
~ Frederick Lenz


Some people go into tantra with the idea, sort of an intellectual approach, that now they can just do everything and stay high. That doesn't work at all.
~ Frederick Lenz


Tantra is non-dogmatic, in the sense that we don't care about the sensual world; we don't care about other religious traditions. To not care doesn't mean that we don't learn.
Frederick Lenz


In the East, we have developed a science: if you cannot find a soul mate, you can create one. And that science is Tantra. To find a soul mate means to find the person with whom all your seven centers meet naturally. That is impossible. Once in a while, a Krishna and a Radha, a Shiva and a Shakti. And when it happens it is tremendously beautiful. But it is like lightning - you cannot depend on it. If you want to read your Bible, you can't depend on it that when the lightning is there you will read. The lightning is a natural phenomenon, but not dependable.
~ Rajneesh


The Mother Tantra says that if one is not aware in vision, it is unlikely that one will be aware in behavior. If one is not aware in behavior, one is unlikely to be aware in dream. And if one is not aware in dream, then one is unlikely to be aware in the bardo after death.
~ Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche


The emphasis in tantra is not what you find yourself doing, it's on meditation.
~ Frederick Lenz


The advanced education in Tantra obviously has to do with the entrance into samadhi, the negation of the self. That is what the path of negation means, not the negation of life, but the negation of anything that is not enlightenment.
~ Frederick Lenz


I was invited by a publisher to write the text for Tantra.[1] Having done some research, what fascinated me was the evidence that many 'tantric' ideas actually came to India from the Mediterranean. It is rather a dry read and debunks reports of orgies and sexual mischief – sorry to disappoint.
~ Indra Sinha


Some people, of course, say they're practicing tantra. There are a lot of books on tantric sexual practice in local bookstores. These are usually pretty silly books.
~ Frederick Lenz


Tantra is spiritual, not religious. It deals with the spirit. Religion is just an applied body of doctrines that's believed or not believed by one or more individuals. Spirituality is the science of metaphysics.
~ Frederick Lenz


Tantra is the perception of the oneness and the perfection of all things. Not just the perception of light, but the perception of darkness, seeing God in both beauty and horror.
~ Frederick Lenz


Tantra works well for people who are engaged in relationships and sexuality. Sex itself is just an action. It's just part of the dream.
~ Frederick Lenz


Tantra is not for a hedonist at all. It won't work. If you're heavily attracted to sensual experiences, tantra will definitely not be of any use to you.
~ Frederick Lenz


Tantra does not seek any type of experience, nor does it avoid it.
~ Frederick Lenz


You shouldn't run around killing people or eating meat. That's not what we mean by tantra. There's no need to break the rules.
~ Frederick Lenz


The only problem that occurs in the practice of tantra is when you don't practice tantra and fool yourself. You get caught up in powerful vortexes of negative energy which pull you into the lower bardo regions ... into the mud.
~ Frederick Lenz


In tantra we don't believe in commandments. We believe in the moment and the truth that is applicable for that moment, as best we can sort it out with our heart, our intuition, our knowledge, our common sense.
~ Frederick Lenz


Tantra is for the person who has gone beyond the rules. They've learned the rules so well that now they can go beyond them.
~ Frederick Lenz


Tantra won't work unless you've been trapped by spirituality. You have to be trapped by spirituality before you can be liberated from it.
~ Frederick Lenz


Mind delineates experience, and through the filter of mind, experience becomes something else; it becomes knowledge in tantra.
~ Frederick Lenz


Sexuality, for the person who practices tantra, is a marvelous way to experience illusion. Illusion is just another way of seeing things. There are no illusions because there is no self.
~ Frederick Lenz
