as it is said in most TANTRIC
texts, comes out from deep knowledge, which, in its turn proceeds from direct
experience. Therefore, it is necessary to begin with the simplest techniques,
and then go
on gradually to the most intricate ones.
practices are structured according to a 3-steps model: 1.- the enhanced perception,
2.- the perfect control, and 3.- the masterly direction of the force. Out of
these, the control of the sexual energy is the most important for the beginners,
and should be brought to perfection; the stage of perception will interest specially
those who have problems in this sphere (cases of frigidity, for instance). The
direction, as last stage, represents the logical continuation of the process
of control, allowing the spiritual use of this highly amplified sexual energy.
The MANTRA of awareness (perception)
The sounds: AUM AHDI AUM. Learn them, and use them only in connection with these techniques. They may be tuned with loud voice, uttered barely audibly, or best may be repeated mentally. The YANTRA of one's own imagery, or creative imagination should accompany the MANTRA.
"MAHAKALA looked upon the mirror-reflection of the body that KALI had given to him. And he touched gently his body, to know the sensations of pleasure that sprang from it. And KALI directed his touch, and taught him all there was to know."
You know what your body looks like, but precisely because living with it everyday you may not appreciate it at its real value, of sensitive and sensual organism.
TANTRA urges you to get to know your own body in the "Tantric manner", a more uninhibited method.
Stand nude in front of a large mirror. Focus your attention on your lips, and bring the index and middle fingers of your right hand to your lips. Imagine that another person is generating these sensations to you, and repeat the Awareness MANTRA once. Now bring your left hand to the nipple of the right breast. Concentrate on the form of the nipple. Realize your sensitivity. Feel the nipple harden. After you repeat two Awareness MANTRA-s, move the hand away. Let you left arm drop to your side. Now gently stimulate your left breast with your right hand, while repeating twice the Awareness MANTRA. Now fold your hands and let them relax against the abdomen, just below the navel. Say the MANTRA. Parting your hands, slide them downward, through the pubic hair. With the index finger and thumb, encircle your penis at its base, and tighten your fingers around it while you repeat the Awareness MANTRA. Then move your hands away from the penis, without touching any other part of it. Relax the arms. This has been phase one of the technique.
Now close your eyes. Concentrate on the detailed YANTRA-image of yourself in the nude - your reflection in the mirror. If you have trouble in establishing the image, open your eyes and look again at the reflection of your body in the mirror. Touch your lips, nipples, and penis again. Repeating the touch will help fix the image in your mind. Eyes closed, repeat the sequence. Touch your lips with the fingers, while mentally picturing that the hands touching your lips belong to someone else. Repeat the MANTRA as you do this. Then move your right hand fingers to your left breast, stimulating the nipple as before, maintaining the image of someone else's fingers touching the nipple. The sensation of pleasure will enhance as you say the MANTRA. Do the same thing with the right nipple, and then slide the hands downward, with the YANTRA of the image of someone else's fingers grasping the base of your penis, applying a slight pressure.
Now repeat the technique yet another time, with your eyes closed, but this time imagine that the hand is yours but it is touching the lips, nipples, and penis of someone else. Let your fingertips sense the soft outline on another's lips; your fingers sense the hardening of the nipples of another person's breast; your hands slide through the pubic hair; your fingers encircle the base of a penis belonging to another person - all exploring the body of someone else.
This deceptively simple technique is both relaxing and stimulating. If you practise it in the morning, it will make you feel sensually alive and well all day. When repeated in the evening, it will put your body in a state of restful relaxation.
