Complete Idiot’s Guide to Tantric Sex
What exactly is tantric sex? This book explains the way of life the ancients knew and that we are rediscovering. People may be drawn to tantric practices hoping to enhance their sexual satisfaction. But Tantra is much more than a sexual teaching. Tantric practice can transform every aspect of your life, helping you to expand your physical health and vitality, emotional healing and expression, psychic sensitivity, satisfying relationships, creativity, and productivity.

Sex, The Secret Gate to Eden - Alchemy, Tantra, and Kabbalah
This 75-minute film is a rich tapestry of sacred sex symbolism from around the world, including the Kabbala, Western Europeans alchemy symbols, Tantra, Mayan carvings, Tibetan Buddhism, and various Christian gospels. It is inspiring to see the parallels between these traditions, even if they have been interpreted radically differently over the years.
The film is very hard to describe or summarize. A few technical qualms aside, I found that this documentary was very well done. The topic was treated with the utmost respect, the narration was accessible and tantalizing, and the logical use of so many excerpts, citations, and beautiful works of art from across the globe made every moment a pleasurable and highly informative learning experience.
One symbol traced throughout the film is the theme of the serpent, or double serpent. We learn that the double serpent represents the sexual energy or kundalini of male and female rising in synergistic exchange. The serpent, or sexual energy, can either be raised to reconnect us with the Divine, or used to pursue physical gratification.
The film also distinguishes between three types of tantra: black, gray and white. It explains that black tantra emphasizes orgasmic release, thus leading to cravings and suffering. Gray tantra teaches that some orgasms are appropriate, which puts one on a slippery slope toward black tantra. White tantra, on the other hand, teaches the value of consistently channeling the sexual energy upward where it facilitates union with the Divine. White tantra is the "secret gate to Eden".
'Sex, The Secret Gate to Eden - Alchemy, Tantra, and Kabbalah' was produced by Glorian Publishing (formerly known as Thelema Press) in 2006.
For those of you not familiar with Thelema Press, it is an organization devoted to sharing the teachings of Samael Aun Weor (see below).
Glorian is a non-profit organization translating and publishing the Gnostic books of Víctor Manuel Gómez Rodríguez (March 6, 1917 - December 24, 1977), born in Bogotá, Colombia. He took the spiritual name "Samael Aun Weor", and also referred to himself as "Kalki Avatar". From an early age, he was interested in the occult. He referred to his teachings as the synthesis of all religions, cultures and mysteries. Therefore his writings cite teachings contained within Buddhism, Hinduism, Rosicrucianism, Christianity, Islam (Sufi), Kabbalah, Theosophy, Aztec, Mayan and ancient Egyptian tradition constituting the base of his contemporary Gnosticism.
There are numerous websites in many languages devoted to Samael Aun Weors teachings. One is Gnostic Teachings by Glorian features lectures, online courses, discussion forums and more. Glorian has also Gnostic Radio, free audio lectures and podcasts.

Shakti Sadhana encompasses asana of all shakthis but not paisaachi and kshudra shakthis. Pauishachi is evil foces of ghosty origin and kshudra is evil devine forces. Both have nothing in common with shakthi sadhana. Shakti Sadhana main aim is to attain saarupya (looks) and sayujya (merger) with Adi Paraa Shakthi whose manifestations are lalita etc.
There are various path in Shakti Sadhana. There is Durga and her manifestations, Lashmi, Kali, Tara, The Dasa Maha Vidyas in short. Essentially in each path THAT Mahaa Vidya is treated as supreme and rest as subordinate.
This misperception has led many astray, and has kept many really deserving persons away from the practices.

Um eines gleich vorwegzunehmen: Das echte Tantra hat mit dem sogenannten "Neo-Tantra" (oder "Die neue Form des Bordells", wie ich es immer nenne) nichts gemeinsam. Ich finde es haarsträubend, was heutzutage in vielen Tantrakursen angeboten wird - meistens ein Freipass zum rumbumsen. Ist doch so!
Das Shakta-Tantra ist ein Sadhana-Shastra von Advaitavada Vedanta. Es gibt, wie man wohl wissen sollte, verschiedene Schulen des Advaita-Vedanta wie Mayavada, die Schulen des nördlichen Shaivagama oder den Shuddhadvaita des Vallabhacharya. Gleicherweise gibt es in den "Tantras" Schulen verschiedene Lehre. So begeht man einen schweren Fehler, wenn man unter Tantra nur das Shakta-Tantra versteht, das in Bengalen vorherrscht.
