Ipanemic: easily my new favorite blog. Weird, passive aggressive, and ultra-local. At first when I saw this I was worried that I had MPD, and this was the blog of one of my alternate personalities, and while I’ve ruled that out, well, I mean, geez — the thing where he went to Tantra by himself? Just genius. Please take the time to click around and really explore the site, because it does not operate like any other website in the world. I mean — huh?? — Since when is a ham sandwich a variation on pb&j.

    “Tantra is an accumulation of practices and ideas which has among its characteristics the use of ritual, energy work, in some sects transgressional acts, the use of the mundane to access the supramundane and the identification of the microcosm with the macrocosm.5 The Tantric practitioner seeks to use the divine power that flows through the universe (including their own body) to attain purposeful goals. These goals may be spiritual, material or both.6

    A practitioner of tantra considers mystical experience or the guidance of a Guru imperative.7 In the process of working with energy the Tantric has various tools at their disposal. These include yoga ~ to actuate processes that will yoke the practitioner to the divine. Also important are the use of visualizations of the deity and verbalisation or evocation through mantras ~ which may be construed as seeing and singing the power into being; identification and internalisation of the divine is enacted ~ often through a total identification with a deity, such that the aspirant ‘becomes’ the deity [8], the Ishta-Devata.” -Wiki

    and I thought it was just sex magic…

    Tantra can also be translated as Continuity.

    Many ideas about Tantra have gotten corrupted in the west, with its frequent association with sex and the bass player from the Police, Sting, and perhaps Madonna, or maybe thats Kabbalah.
