Tantra – An Authentic Spiritual Path
Tantra as a spiritual tradition emerged from the cultures of the Himalayan Mountains well over a thousand years ago. In the time since it’s origins, it has spread throughout many civilisations, societies and peoples, leaving it’s distinct markings from Kashmir to Tibet and far beyond. It’s popularity and relevance today is a testament to the profound and timeless nature of its teachings.
The Tantric tradition was originally carried by an oral tradition, transmitted from guru to disciple since the time of the Vedas. Only later was it recorded in written form and while scholars have long debated the exact time of that transition, we can conclude that since the writing of the Tantras is post-Panini Sanscrit they were compiled and put into writing in the period ranging from the second or third century B.C. to the third or fourth century A.D.
Trika or Kashmir shaivism as it’s more popularly called is widely considered to be the central pillar of tantric philosophy. Since Kashmir Shaivism is a non-dualistic system of knowledge, it’s philosophers, particularly Abinavagupta, accept mainly those Tantras (scriptures) in which the theory of complete unity or absolutism is included, that is to be non-dual.
Throughout the broad history of Tantric philosophy, Abhinavagupta is the most prominent name. He is the central philosopher of the Trika or Pratyabhijna school, more commonly known as Kashmir Shaivism. Kashmir Shaivism is itself the most prominent and well known system within the Tantric tradition and Abhinavagupta was responsible for much of its compilation. His most famous work being the Tantraloka (Read more about Him here).

I absolutely loved the 3 day intensive program and would highly recommend it to anyone who has an interest in Tantra as this course provides an in-depth introduction into its theory and practices. In fact, even if you are not sure about Tantra but would like to have a better understanding of your own energy/chakras then definitely take this course! This course was extremely well structured and packed with amazing insights, asanas, and meditations. I definitely came away with many practices to bring home as I start my journey into this path of yoga. Can’t wait to come back for the 1 month course next season!
What a special person Prema is! What he can deliver is far beyond what I expected in three days which is just a taste of what’s to come! Felt like the ultimate coming home celebration. The feelings engendered over the weekend languished from bliss to euphoria to joy and giggles to grand sweeping gusts of energy and zeal. To experience such incredible depths of intensity then contrasted by the moments of delicacy that left our bodies quivering, shining with soft tremulous and fitful light. A truly remarkable and exceptional event.
Tantric wisdom forms a comprehensive basis on which a truly happy and healthy life can be attained, it teaches the practitioner to accept the world in such a way that it becomes a means of self realisation. It offers an integral view of life that synthesises enjoyment (bhoga) and liberation (moksha) as well as worldly involvement and renounciation. It promotes a positive yoga that embraces every aspect of life and transforms it into something both Holy and Good.
In this way it can be understood that the Tantric teaching are essentially timely and timeless. In fact it can be said that the teachings are as valueable today as they have ever been and offer the Seeker an unparallelled structure for the attainment of spiritual wisdom and transformation.
The Tantric Teachings Today
The complexity and richness of the Tantric tradition and its teaching has led to the emergence over the years of a wide variety of misconceptions about the nature of its practices and philosophies. Among the general public today it can even be said that very few truly understand the Tantric Principles and even fewer apply them correctly. This remains true despite the ever growing popularity of Tantra in todays cultural environment.
The value system of the Tantric tradition is so comprehensive and thorough that it encompasses absolutely every aspect of life as we know it. The mainly experiential nature of Tantra as a spiritual path means it needs to be lived in order to be understood and rare are the ones that choose to walk this path today.
With this in mind, Mahasiddha Yoga offers an authentic and truly embodied approach to the study of Tantra. With over 30 years of continuous course structure we offers students the rare opportunity to actually ‘walk’ the path. With Kashmir Shaivism as a central pillar of our teachings, our courses give students the chance to immerse themselves in the ancient and timeless teachings of Tantric Yoga, while still remaining completely integrated in the world and the modern lifestyle.
