In orgasm, we get a first glimpse of awakening, of true meditation.
At orgasm, in ecstasy all thoughts disappear. Only for a moment does total awareness set in. Suddenly we are just natural: no thoughts, no control – bliss. Unfortunately, this moment passes and the head turns back on.
From this experience that in the absence of thought awareness can lead to ecstasy, it was searched for ways to extend this moment. That was the beginning of meditation.
Thus, the union of Shiva (male energy) and Shakti (female energy) in the Tantric ritual is much more than a symbolic act or a pleasurable encounter. The meeting becomes meditation. It is a profound experience of merging, uniting with oneself, the ritual partner and with everything else.
