Season 1 - Episode 6

Tantric Goddesses and Jackals

75 min - Talk


David Gordon White puts the Seven Chakra Model into question through unpacking its history and giving us a look at the many other models that existed. He then turns to the topic of Tantric sex by first by looking at Tantric violence through imagery and text. Our journey continues with White's suggestion that the jackals on charnel grounds are actually Tantric goddesses and we conclude with an understanding of what success as a Tantric yogi might look like.

An (inner) eye-opening exposé on the deeper secrets of ritual practice and experience. I was particularly intrigued with portrayal of the tantric witches at Katmandu... It brought to mind The Lover Marseille Tarot card #6 (c.1500)... There, too, a Crone and a Maiden hold a male captive...( overhead, a vibrating angel/Cupid shoots an arrow into his head!)
Thanks again David
