Swami Rama


The Path of Tantra

The technique of attaining the goal of shakti sadhana is called tantra. This is a method of helping one to realize the atman—the highest self. Etymologically, the word is derived from the verb tan, which means “expansion” or “introduction,” and the suffix tra, which means “protection” or “guide.” Thus, tantra is the path of sadhana that leads an aspirant to the highest state of protection, which is the highest state of attainment. Tantric scriptures expound the multifarious meaning of all the tattvas (principles), from the Absolute to the manifest world, including the science of mantra.
