The ancient art of Tantra is tainted by the judgements and perceptions of those who presume, without foundation, that tantra is all about the physical act of achieving sustained and continuous climax using methods which allow a couple to remain engaged in the physical act for extended periods of time, purely with the goal of remaining in that heightened state of utter enthralment for longer periods of time. This makes tantra appear to be a very selfish act geared towards self-gratification between couples. In reality, this couldn’t be further from the truth. As Tanta master, Mal Weeraratne explains, tantra only works when there is heightened trust and connection between men and women who are connected on the deepest and most grounded level that the base chakra is responsible for. Western views often misconstrue the practice as being purely physical and negate the spiritual aspects of tantra and tantric practices. Tantra is the achievement of a lifelong spiritual journey achieved only by truly and spiritually understanding oneself in order to essentially connect with another.
The body is more than just the physical. The body is a complex network of physical, emotional and energetic centres that work in unison. When one or more of these aspects of the body are in a negative state, this can product the block in the energy centres thereby stopping the natural processing of the physical body. The more that energy finds itself misplaced or misdirected, the more change of a person experiencing discomfort or disease in the physical aspects of the body.
What is misunderstood about Tantra, explains Mal Weeraratne, is that is has the ability to facilitate the body back to functioning is it was always meant to. Physical ailments and problems which some of the patients who come to Mal Weeraratne, looking for answers, can be remedied naturally and easily, with Mal Weeraratne’s expertise and understanding of the energy systems in our bodies. Ailments including Vaginismus, depression and anxiety, addictions, insomnia, stress, body aches and so forth can be relieved using this ancient eastern technique.
Notwithstanding the physical aspects, so too can Tantra assist with a number of emotions issues which both men and women may manifest in their relationships with themselves and others. Relationship issues, arousal disorders, inability to trust a partner, fear of love and intimacy and insecurity resulting from a lack of confidence can be diffused through this simple practice which instil trust and returns the body to its natural self-healing state, enabling more honest and truthful relationships.
Those who misunderstand Tantra will tell you that Tantra is all physical but the reality is that it is more to do with focusing on the connection which is why it is more often than not, a source of great healing which can be seen in many parts of your life. Tantra allows the body to flow energy freely throughout the body so that it reaches every part for many hours after the practice has ended.
