About Tantra
Tantra is the asian body of beliefs n practices which, working from the principle that the universe we experience is nothing other than the concrete manifestation of the divine energy of the Godhead that creates and maintains that universe, seeks to ritually appropriate and channel that energy, within the Human microcosm, in creative and emancipatory ways.

Rather than single coherent systems, Tantra is an accumulation of practices and ideas which has among its characteristics the use of rituals, energy work, in some sect transgression acts, the use of the mundane to access the supramundane and the identification of the microcosm with the macrocosm. The Tantric practitioner seeks to use the divine power that flows throught the universe (including their own body) to attain purposeful goals. These goals may be spiritual, material or both.

A practitioner of tantra considers mystical experience or the guidance of a Guru imperative. In the process of working with energy the tantric has various tools at their disposal. These include yoga to actuate process that will yoke to practitioner to the divine. Also important are the use of visualizations of the deity and verbalization or evocation through mantras which may be construed as seeing and singing the power into being; identification and internalization of the divine is enacted often through a total identification with a deity, such that the aspirate 'becomes' the deity.
