Buddhist Tantra and the Emptiness of the Ego

The basic principle of Tantra is that once we have realised that we are ultimately empty of fixed existence, we should also realise that we are free from any constraints to our potential.

Tantric meditators start from where meditation on Emptiness left off. Having learned that we aren't obliged to use a biological body and evolutionary-detemined instincts as the basis of imputation of the self, we can use something else, for example a Buddha.

In Tantric practice we visualise our self as an Enlightened Being.

The practice of Tantric visualisations is said to hasten us along the path to enlightenment, and decrease our attachment to being reborn in the biological realms and other states of craving and suffering.

Tantra Sutra
There is nothing forbidden in Tantra. In Tantra there is no division between what is good and what is bad what is acceptable and what is unacceptable. For instance, Tantra, places no moral judgment on your activities. Panchamakara — the five acts that are generally prohibited — is what some tantriks practise. Some claim that Tantra can be practiced by anyone who is attracted to this path but others claims it to be secretive.
The Tantra vision is one of wholeness, of embracing everything, because every situation, whether pleasant or unpleasant, is an opportunity to become more aware about who you are and how you can expand your capacities. Because Tantra believes in wholeness, it embraces opposites, seeing them not as contradictions but as complements.
The concepts of male and female therefore are not set apart, forever divided by a gender gap, but are viewed as two polarities that meet and merge naturally in every living being. Tantra recognizes that each human being, whether man or woman, has both masculine and feminine qualities. It means discarding our gender stereotypes, we can expand our sexual identities tremendously, honouring the polarity in ourselves that until now has been largely ignored. In Tantra a man can be encouraged to explore his soft, receptive, vulnerable, feminine aspects. He can slip out from beneath the weight of his male responsibilities, stop performing, and relax. And a woman can explore her masculine dimension, recognizing that she is capable of dynamic leadership in taking the initiative, creating new ways of guiding, teaching, and giving. The man does not give up his masculinity, nor does the woman abandon her femininity. They simply expand their potential to include the other polarity.
In Tantra, when the male and female polarities merge, a new dimension becomes available-the sense of the sacred. When this sacredness of union is felt, it is possible to experience connection to the life force itself, the source of creation. One can then, feel that one is a part of the great dance of existence, the Tandav Nritya — the dance of destruction and creation by the Lord Shiva.

Thank you Katalin for the invitation. I am curious about Tantra and "Tantra on yoga".
Blessings from my heart.
