Tantra & Sustainability

For centuries, humanity has often taken two paths while living in the world: we have either tried to escape the snares of the world, or we have tried to subdue and exploit the world. The worldview of Tantra offer a refreshing and much needed alternative.

According to Tantric cosmology, our planet emerged from the cosmic embrace of spirit, or Shiva, and matter, or Shakti. Wherever there is Shiva, there is also Shakti, Tantra says. So, whatever we do in this world, therein lies the potential for sacredness, for dynamic, yogic balance. This world is neither a place to escape from, nor a place to exploit. To Tantra, this world, like our own body, is a sacred temple where spirit can reveal itself in the stillness of breath and in the exalted bliss of chant.

If Tantra is our worldview, how will it inform our environmental outlook, our food choices, and our sense of justice? How can our lifestyle become an integral part of our spiritual practice? What will our economy and our culture look like if society’s central vision is spiritual enlightenment?
