The term "Tantra" encompasses a broad spectrum of concepts and principles. In its most global sense, Tantra is a discipline of Hinduism that focuses on the worship of Shakti, the concept of the godly creative abilities of the female, best embodied by fertility. Tantric principles dictate the purification and refinement of physical reality, as well as heightened awareness, and this principle is maintained during the Tantric massage.
