Excerpt from: Tantra: The Way of Acceptance
"Tantra teaches you to reclaim respect for the body, love for the body. Tantra teaches you to look at the body as the greatest creation of existence. Tantra is the religion of the body. Of course it goes higher, but it never leaves the body; it is grounded there. It is the only religion that is really grounded in the earth: it has roots. Other religions are uprooted trees, dead, dull , dying; the juice does not flow in them.
" Tantra is really juicy, very alive.
"The first thing is to learn respect for the body, to unlearn all the nonsense that has been taught to you about the body. Otherwise, you will never turn on, and you will never turn in, and you will never turn beyond. Start from the beginning. The body is your beginning." Osho
