THE PRINCIPLES OF TANTRA
"The Principles of Tantra" adapted from Kali Rising: Foundational Principles of Tantra for a Transforming Planet by Rudolph Ballentine offer guidelines to assist individuals and communities with managing their unfolding:
Inner Marriage - The wholeness of the Yang Masculine (penetrating), Yin Masculine (containing), Yin Feminine (supporting), and Yang Feminine (changing).
Everything is an Experiment - Collect data from an experiment to inform the next experiment.
Tapas (Container) and Spanda (Spontaneity) - The container of practice (what is kept in and out) encourages spontaneity.
Ascending Engery and Descending Light of Conciousness - Ride the waves of HA (life energy breath), the ascending transformation Yin (Feminine) inhales, and the descending stabilizing Yang (Masculine) exhales.
Multiple Realities- Every breath is an opportunity for inspiration.
As Within, So Without - What’s inside a person is also represented on the outside.
The Healing Power of Pleasure - Enjoy what you enjoy; ask for more! The greater the pleasure, the deeper the healing.
