Lingam Puja

pujaTantra is an ancient spiritual tradition with sacred rituals dating back hundreds if not thousands of years. Descriptions of Tantric practices sometimes read like a contemporary sex manual, as in the following account of the ritual known as Lingam Puja:

The male penis is worshipped by the Pundai-Stri who blessed the pujari with her vaginal libations. She will move her hands across his body in large circles, finally concentrating her attention on the lingam or the erect penis. She will then hold the erect lingam in her hand and stroke it gently, and then more vigorously until the lingam blesses her with its libations. Sometimes, the yoni-stri will take the Penile libations in her mouth, with the erect Lingam shooting its life-giving seminal fluids into her mouth.

[Then] she takes the lingam to the mouth of her divine passage or yoni, and enjoys the warmth of the throbbing penis. The warm embrace of the lingam by the unctuous yoni creates a sangam (union) that generates cosmic energy that leads to liberation or a state of Nirvana that must be experienced to be appreciated.

chakra sexIn the Tantric yoga tradition, chakras are energy points of the subtle body where life force is concentrated. There are seven chakras, from the root chakra to the crown chakra, usually depicted by a color-coded system. During sexual intercourse the chakra systems of the two partners become united, as shown in the illustration above.

The Jewel of Shakti

mimi_miyagiIn the Tantric Goddess worship of ancient India, the clitoris was revered as a symbol of feminine power. The Sanskrit word for clitoris is yonimani, from yoni meaning vagina and mani, which literally means “jewel” but can also symbolically refer to the penis. Female worshipers sought to emulate the size and strength of the Goddess’s yonimani through constant exercise of the clitoris. A woman with a hyper-developed yonimani was referred to as a naugi, or pythoness, and – with an erect length of two inches or more – her penetrative skills were said to equal those of any man.

An example of a modern-day “pythoness” is Mimi Miyagi, pictured above. She is a physically and intellectually empowered female, who at various times has worked as a model, body-builder, actress and politician. She is best known today for her humanitarian work in support of underprivileged children in the Philippines, and for having campaigned to become Governor of Nevada in 2006. But earlier in her career, during the 1990s, she worked briefly in the adult film industry – revealing to the world that she has a truly enormous yonimani. At one point, body-building exercises and  steroid use caused it to grow to an estimated 5 centimetres in length. An empowered woman indeed!

The Sanskrit term Chakra Puja refers to a sex ritual undertaken by a group of participants. The word Chakra literally means “wheel”, and the ritual takes the form of a circle in which sexual energy is transmitted from one participant to the next.

The picture above shows a group of men engaged in a circular sex ritual. This particular ritual is known as Trenecito.

Chakra Meditation

Chakra MeditationThe Chakra system, comprising the seven major energy centres of the human body, is one of the central concepts of New Age philosophy, holistic wellbeing and alternative therapy. The term Chakra is derived from Sanskrit, and originated in the Hindu tradition of India. The Chakra concept also features prominently in Tantra, where sexually charged Kundalini energy is seen as flowing upwards through the system of chakras. As described in my ebook Sex Meditation, it is possible to achieve an ecstatic state of orgasmic bliss by visualizing Kundalini slowly rising up through the seven chakras like an enormous, swelling penis made of pure energy.
