Sting and Tantric Love Making (Maithuna)...
Practical Experiences on Maithuna
A question asked to Maithuna-lovers: “what does Maithuna mean to you?”
TESS (27): “the most intense connection, mind blowing, you realy feel each other, letting go of everything, you touch the core.. you feel the energy flowing in the here and now, my hart is open and I feel love. It is difficult to put it into words. The more I experience Maithuna, the more I discover, the more it unfolds and always different. One word Divine.
Announcement: soon Tess will Write her Maithuna experiences in an own blog.
GEORGE (43): “Maithuna touch me to make love on a conscious way. This made me feel a more beter partner, man and husband. Before I struggled with premature ejaculation. This would give me feelings of guilt towards Tess. This is all in the past now, I can enjoy for an extended duration of time now, prolonging my ejaculation without the need of preforming. Maithuna is a recommendation for every man.. and woman of course”
BOB (35):’making love, nothing on your mind and just enjoying the present moment. You have all the time. With the right partner, intention and atmosphere you will experience intense sensational long states or orgasmic heights. The book Maithuna has guided me towards writing my own ‘journeys’ down. Martin, Thank you for sharing your knowledge and wisdom with an open heart.
ELLEN (52): “experiencing Maithuna the journey makes it a most special, but also most abstract to experience. Think and feel how nice it is to be just your authentic self while in contact with another? Not roleplaying, censoring, hiding or preforming. You probably know that feeling and justify it by saying it is ok, but inside you feel that you merely accepted it or how it is, or maybe because you think it should be like that? You might think you are too demanding, not good enough, maybe it is your problem? Etc. To just be yourself feels fantastic. People long and look for this.
Many people make love thinking that they are enjoying it, or don’t feel much pleasure. Not knowing how to do it otherwise. When in Tantric lovemaking you don’t think, you flow. So thinking in advance that it should be like this or that simply doesn’t work. It is not about preforming something, trying to do your best at it or trying to please the other. Flowing in tantric lovemaking is about experiencing intimacy, the energy you both conduct as created out a space of awareness. The whole world fades away and nothing else matters. A feeling of total trust, surrender to the present moment, forgetting about time and space, feeling pure love streaming through your entire being. I open up to be venerable, to feel emotions in they rise, it can all be exiting, but at the same time I just feel this is it. This is life, everything flows together. Every time a new experience al over again. Maithuna has made me a more loving and completer human. It tough me self-love, and my partner to step out of fear and uncertainty. No thinking, just feeling…”
Kamasutra vs. Maithuna
Kamasutra vs. Maithuna
If you see the below overview of pictures, you might think "we already know that of the Kamasutra"... Nothing is what it seems...
In the Kamasutra it is mainly about the pleasure of the man. The original book was written by Vatsyayana around the period of the Bible's opening, both books are written from a patriarchal perspective. In both books the woman has a 'junior' role, where she can 'do' 'steething' with her partner... The male partner remains 'state' in different postures until he receives a seed discharge, after which it is usually finished...
Within the Maithuna, both partners are equal and enjoy the experience together, where an intense energy exchange takes place between the chakras. This can be so intense that a transcendent experience is created... As a woman (Shakti) you learn to feel even more and enjoy your Yoni (vagina)... Because the man (Shiva) has learned to control his seed discharge, it is possible to release it for a long time. This gives a feeling of bliss... You are in an ecstatic FLOW, a feeling that you want to hold hours...
Maithuna for Life
If you master the Maithuna, your life and relationship comes into another dimension... Are you going to compare to 'classical sex'... conclusion: "Maithuna for Life..."
Maithuna will let you meet each other from a place of love and communal respect. Touching and feeling are no longer to purpose to an ‘animal ‘release, the mandatory, weekly ’11-minute sex’. By (re)discovering tantric lovemaking, you’ll rediscover intimacy on many levels, experiencing more intense orgasms and deepening the connection of your relationship. Relation therapists around the globe recommend the Maithuna book as a guideline and support towards achieving and or maintaining balanced relationships.
Maithuna part of Tantric living
A lot of stories circulate about Tantra and Maithuna but it is often not understood. Usually Tantra is translated as a form of sex. But it is much more. Tantra is an ancient Indian philosophy, which has been given a new, western look here. Every school and trainer puts its own stamp on it. But the essence is always: do not resist the vital life energy that flows through your body, but work with it. Your life will become deeper, fuller, richer.
Tantra is a spiritual path, which helps to get in touch with an inner depth and wealth. And also to live that wealth in the world, to bring it into relationships with others and your work. ” Dancing, singing, massage, love making (Maithuna) are ways to wake up that energy, for example.
What is important is that you are attentive. That you experience a depth in what you do. You have to be quiet inside to feel that subtle energy. You usually don't succeed just like that. People have to learn a lot to slow down and still, they are often too hasty. It's about acknowledging everything you experience and not pushing anything away, because that hides the channel through which you can perceive. Sensitivity is very central.
You wake up the vital energy in your body, which we call "shakti energy". That is why you experience yourself deeper. That also activates the wounds that are there, the confusion, the fears, the desires, our frustrations, but that's good, because then you can also uncover and transform all that. The most important thing is that you activate the inner depth so that you also experience your love and strength, the qualities you have as a person, more fully.
To explain what Tantra is, experts often cite the example of someone craving chocolate. You can eat chocolate mindlessly while reading, talking, or working. You can eat yourself in a box of chocolates and then regret that you have succumbed to it. A Tantra practitioner does it differently. When she feels a craving for chocolate, she welcomes that desire. It does not immediately mean that she will also grab a bonbon. But if such a Tantra woman deliberately chooses to grab a bonbon, she also fully enjoys, with all her senses. She sees the beauty of the dark chocolate, she feels it melting between her fingers, she smells it sweet, she pushes the delicacy against her palate, she deliberately tastes every piece. She is completely in the here and now (present) of the taste experience and feels the happiness of it in every fiber of her body.
"Desire wants to be fulfilled immediately,” we know that too well in our consumer society. When you start practicing Tantra, you discover that the desire itself is also a nice feeling. It only becomes painful when you have the idea that you have to do something with it. However, you do not suffer from the desire itself, but from that idea. Pure desire is painless. According to Buddhism it is even enlightenment. Pure desire is perfect happiness.
The word Tantra means something like system, theory or school. In ancient India, there were countless different types of Tantra schools and teachers. With the new age, Tantra has come to the West and here too there are many different views and directions that all present themselves under the banner of Tantra. Often Tantra is associated with sexuality and that is correct, because the life energy that you evoke in Tantric exercises is a sexual energy. The whole life consists of creative energy, is the idea; that energy is everywhere, around us, in our body and in everything that lives. You can 'plug in' that energy flow, as it were, with bodywork, breathing techniques, massage and visualisations (see also box 'The small heavenly cycle'). Then you can use that energy in everything you do. Our genitals are ideally suited to generate that vital energy. That makes sense: there life creates new life, in the form of babies. What is more beautiful than Tantric Love Making (Maithuna) and getting pregnant...
