The words we use to talk about our genitals/sexual anatomy matter! Words carry a vibration and can serve to connect or alienate.
In Tantra, the words we use to describe our sexual anatomy are rooted in the understanding of the inherent sacredness of human sexual pleasure.
Therefore, the words to describe these experiences are encoded with sacred meaning.
For example, instead of vulva, vagina (which means sheath), pussy, or cookie, in Tantra we say:
Yoni = Sacred Space
Lotus = Sacred Flower
Mandala = Circle of Light which is a portal to a Buddha realm
Jade Gate/ Jade Palace
Instead of Penis, C*ock and Balls (or ball sack), in Tantra we say:
Lingam = Wand of Light
Vajra = Indestructibly Hard Diamond Sceptor
Dorje = Divine Thunderbolt of Wisdom
AND Elixir Filled Jewels.
Instead of “cum” or “jizz” or “wad” we refer to male ejaculate as “Elixir” and female emissions as “Amrita”.
IMAGINE how your relationship to your body/genitals would be different if you had grown up understanding them to be SACRED.
