What is Tantra?

Tantra is an ancient spiritual and philosophical tradition that developed on the Indian subcontinent from the middle of the 1st millennium of common era in both Hinduism and Buddhism.

Tantra encompasses a wide range of practices and beliefs, seeking to explore the nature of existence, consciousness, and the connection between the individual and the universe.

Tantra (Sanskrit: तन्त्र) literally means "loom, warp, weave". Verbal root Tan means "to extend", "to spread", "to spin out", "weave", "display", "put forth", and "compose". It can also mean "system", "doctrine", or "work".

For me Tantra means the dive inwards towards our true self, to the origin and the one deep source of all existence, and at the same time the expansion outwards out of individual boundaries reaching and connecting to the whole world in all diversity of existence.
