Lesson T31 - Q&A Constant Coming...
Date: Sun Jun 6, 2004 0:23am
New Members: It is recommended you read from the beginning of this tantra yoga archive, as
previous lessons are prerequisite to this one. The first lesson is, "What is tantra yoga?"
Q: What you say makes sense and in true essence, it is the ojas that we take up derived
from the muladhara fire.
But it does happen especially when we are fully perched above at the third eye and as our
body is played as a divine instrument... the 'orgasmic' waves are brought upward and
centered into the third eye... the muladhara climbs up... and then when we come...the
whole body resonates and, surprisingly, sperm does not come out. The process also requires
us to roll our tongue as a straw and suck up the pleasure with every inhale and closing
our eyes, guide it to the third eye.
A: Thank you for you clear perspective on vajroli, and root to third eye orgasm.
I agree, true vajroli (upward absorption of sexual fluids), beyond the managed mechanical
technique of it, is an automatic part of a much bigger process that involves the third eye
to root connection. I call it ecstatic conductivity. You call it the muladhara (root)
climbing up to the third eye. That is an interesting description you give, because one of
the observations we have in spinal bastrika, where attention and breath are rapidly
oscillating between the third eye and root, is that the third eye and root
"merge" into one. This merging of root and third eye is what is occurring in
slow spinal breathing as well, though it may be less noticed in the early stages. This is
the ecstatic connection being cultivated between the root and third eye, just as you have
There is another element we can observe, and that is the phenomenon of the change that
occurs in "coming." In sex, "coming" is orgasm, both before and after
the vajroli effect naturally joins into the spiritual-sexual equation. With rising
ecstatic conductivity between the root and third eye, the event of "coming" into
the third eye you describe creeps into our life as an ongoing experience. In other words,
"coming" or "orgasm" becomes an ongoing whole-body event that never
stops, and requires no external stimulation. A mere raising of the eyes, an entering into
kechari, or a small flex at the root will keep waves of ecstasy coursing through the
nervous system like a rolling sea. And that isn't all. Over time, the whole process
migrates upward from the third eye to the crown as well. That process of opening the crown
with stability is covered in recent discussions in the main lessons.
Can "coming" be sustained like this? Can we continue to function under the
influence of constant whole-body orgasm? Is it exhausting?
In fact, this ongoing experience of "coming" is the fruition of yoga, the rise
of an unending state of ecstatic bliss and divine love in the nervous system. We can
continue to function in this situation, because our nervous system acclimates to it, just
as it does to all other enhancements in our spiritual neuro-biology that occur with long
term practice of yoga.
It is not exhausting. Just the opposite. As divine energy surges through us, it
continuously regenerates every cell in our body. In this situation sex has become the
source of unbounded energy, creativity and happiness in the body. There is so much divine
love surging up inside that it flows out to everyone around us in the form of uplifting
energy and loving service.
This is why we pay close attention to the management of sexual energy as we move along our
chosen path in yoga.
Does this eliminate the need for sexual relations? It certainly makes us less obsessive
about reproductive sex. That is a good thing. At the same time, this transformation turns
all sex into spiritual practice. Pre-orgasmic tantric sex can offer support to the process
of spiritual transformation. So, the advances that occur in our nervous system as a result
of yoga make sexual activity all the more precious whenever we are inclined to engage in
physical lovemaking. Sexual activity then becomes a stepping-stone to permanent ecstatic
Tantric sex is not mandatory for enlightenment, but under the right circumstances it
can be a significant help.
The guru is in you.
