Woman is the central pivot of tantra sex, because she embodies the sacred goddess from which everything is born. The spiritual concept of the sacred feminine can be seen in almost all cultures of the world. The major religions of the world as well as most so-called pagan worship systems recognize the essential tantra goddess model.
Tantra ascribes great importance to the tantra goddess because it acknowledges that it is woman who beckons the seed from man. In truth, it is she who creates by fertilizing what she has called forth from man by the power of her allure. The tantra goddess symbolizes creation, fertility and beauty, and every woman is born as one.
This fact does not absolve her from the responsibility of evoking from the man the required sexual response. In fact, she must learn to do so under the tutelage of a genuine tantra teacher. The tantra goddess in a woman must learn of the process and intricacies of tantric sex. After all, it is she who must coax the orgasmic response form her male partner in order to be fruitful. This is how Mother Nature herself has designed it. It cannot be otherwise.
Once the woman has gained sufficient knowledge about her all-important role from her tantra master, she is ready to be fruitful and blissful with her male partner. At the same time, the man must receive the required tantra instructions to be able to meet his tantra goddess on the holy ground of tantric sexual union. The role of the tantra master is therefore inalienable and intrinsic.
It must be remembered that tantra sex is not something that comes naturally to us. Without tantra instructions, sexual union cannot be more than base animal coupling. Our sexual natures are driven by primitive, unformed instincts – much like those of beasts. We are capable of spiritual evolution, but this does not come without discipline and guidance.
Under the guidance of an accomplished tantra teacher, divine sexuality comes into full bloom and the worship begins. The man, fully instructed in how to arouse and stimulate his woman, is ready to approach the sexual act with respect and reverence. The woman, in turn, is fully awakened to her unique and God-given stature of tantra goddess. She is able to evoke the ultimate sexual potential from her man, and to receive his act of worship in the correct spirit.
What is required of her is a willingness to give in abundance of herself, as befits a goddess. She holds nothing back, for her man has also abandoned himself to adoring her as a divine creature. The combined power of the tantra knowledge given to them by their tantra master sets their bodies and souls ablaze with unfathomable passion. This passion is what feeds everything that ever was and ever will be creative in Nature.
