T43 - Review of Blocking Method for Men (Audio)
Date: Sun Jun 5, 2005 7:41 am
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: My meditation and pranayama with
mulabandha are going perfectly, with symptoms you indicated in your lessons.
I am very much eager to follow the tantra methods.
I started in holdback
with blocking. Where should I press to stop semen from releasing -- between
the anus and testicles, or between testicles and tip of organ? Please give
the exact portion to press. Can I practice holdback with blocking daily?
A: Thank you for writing and sharing. I am very
happy to hear practices are going well.
Tantric blocking (lesson
with the holdback method (lesson
underneath in the perineum area, the soft area between the testicles and
anus, behind the pubic bone. If you push up in there, it is soft. This is
also where the heel (or substitute object) goes in siddhasana. This is the
same place a woman's vagina is.
To block, we push
fingers up in there and forward against the back of the pubic bone, shutting
the channel of the penis (urethra) going up inside. The further up in the
soft area we can comfortably do it, the better.
Yes, daily practice of
holdback with blocking as necessary is okay, as long as the results are good
and there is no major discomfort. That goes for all of AYP, of course.
Remember, daily orgasm with blocking is not the goal. Long preorgasmic
cultivation is the goal. This may end in orgasm, or not. Eventually, not
orgasm very often. Make sure you use the holdback method with sexual
stimulation. This is how staying power is developed, not through blocking.
Blocking is the last resort for a man, an effective means to preserve sexual
essences when orgasm occurs. Once staying power is established, the need for
blocking becomes less and less. And, as natural vajroli arises, blocking,
when it does occur, will become less and less intense -- just a finger
easily placed there and it all goes up with natural vajroli. It is a
long-term project and evolution. Go at your own pace.
I wish you all success
on your chosen spiritual path. Enjoy!
guru is in you.
