We are putting this after deep analysis of the audiences and the present tantra practices of teachings. Here we want to put that the tantra and the real definition of the tantra be well understood. Tantra shastra is a a up veda of Atharv vaeda (one of the four Vedas i.e. Rig , Sam, Atharv and Yjur veda ). Some of the experts trace back the origin more before as OM and the origin of OMKAR. This may be attributed to the fact that the Beej swaroop of all most all mantra is OM, can be regarded as the main tatv of tantra.
In NATH samprday secret tantric practices were systamatised by the Sage Matsyendranath in his Kaulajnana Nirnaya. With the blessings of ADINATH (OMKAR SWAROOP, shiv ) Having Siva-Shakti blessings, Matsyendranath practiced ‘yogini kaula’ in the company of women. He establishes a new cult in Kamarupa where he was in the midst of shavite yoginis. Shakti is Kula. Siva is akula; their Union is Kaula giving rise to Kaula Marga path to moksha. It is to be noted that Siva in yoga is encircled by 64 yoginis. It is also to be noted that Kapilaka Saivism branched out as Kaula and Trika. Kapilaka Shaivism, in turn was a break away from Mantra Margha which also gave birth to Saiva Sidhanta, the forerunner to Tamil Shaiva Siddhanta. Mantra Margha and Atimarga, on the other hand, trace their origins in Non-Puranic Saivism which originated from Rudra worship. What ever may be the case every Vidya and marg traces origin from SHIV SHAKTI.
And we if consider Sanskrit shloka:
Sarvesrtha yen tanyante vayante trayante ch bhyyajyanan,
Iti tantrasya tantratvm tantragya parickshte II
It means that mantra and its proper usage in rituals, well explained systematic Puja and spiritual work accordingly. Its all is referred as tantra. Recently I came across many texts on TANTRA WORK and adds. I find so called yogis mix sex, passion with tantra and spiritualism very intelligently to attract people. I could visualize two possible reasons: one people understand the things in this manner mostly and second more suitable reason may that western people are very keen learner tend to know new things vey eagerly. Its not the right practice doing GREAT harm to the santan padhati and rich culture of Indian spiritualism. ITS MY HUMBLE REQUEST PLEASE DON’T MISREPRESENT YOGA, FOR YOUR OWN BENEFITS.
And its also for the audiences to see the facts and study thoroughly the concept before following anybody. The shastra also recommend 7 majore shudis (purities) in any practice are the qualities for yogis:
Anga vasan mann bhumika dravyopkaran saar,
Nyay dravya vidhi-shudhta shudhi saat prakar
while doing tantra practice body, cloths, material, soul, rightfully earned money should be used, keeping in mind these 7 things in mind the practitioner must do practice other wise proves harmful. so please do tantra practice keeping these things in MIND. ADESH ADESH …..
