Upset Hindus Tell Sting: “Tantra Is Not Just Sex”

Upset Hindus Tell Trudie Styler & Sting: “Tantra Is Not Just Sex”

Hindus are dismayed and critical of actress-producer Trudie Styler and her husband Sting who apparently think, describe, and fixated on Tantra as just sex.

Styler (Moving the Mountain), 56, reportedly offered revelations about tantric lovemaking by Oscar nominated musician Sting (Cold Mountain), 58, to potential buyers at a New York fundraiser auction on May six. The stories boasting about Sting-Trudie marathon eight-hour tantric-sex sessions have been circulating for many years, but musician-model-actress Coco Sumner (Stardust) sometime back reportedly contradicted the tantric-sex sessions of her parents Sting and Trudie Styler. Styler reportedly announced in the recent past that "Sadomasochism is the new Tantra". There were reports that Tantra was now reportedly being utilized in dating in Europe.

Acclaimed Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, in a statement in Nevada (USA) today, said that Tantrism was a major channel in Indian religious traditions and besides Hinduism, it also exerted considerable influence on Buddhism and Jainism. Sankaracharya had mentioned the names of 64 Tantras.

Zed, who is president of Universal Society of Hinduism, pointed out that Tantra, a method of spiritual self-culture, was divine revelation whose history went back to fourth century. Tantra was a conscious approach to self-discovery which directed the seeker to prepare mind and body to the level where it could withstand any turbulence, both inner as well as outer. Tantras noted three unique states of sadhana (spiritual endeavor)—purification, illumination, and unification.

Rajan Zed further said that Hindus welcomed Hollywood and other celebrities to immerse in Hinduism but taking it seriously and not just flirting with its terminology and concepts and using it as a fashion statement. Hinduism was the oldest and third largest religion of the world with about one billion adherents and a rich philosophical thought and it should not be taken lightly.

Celebrities needed to have more patience and go beyond the superficial because Hinduism concepts evolved over thousands of years and needed serious study, Zed added.

Nothing has epitomised the presidency of Barack Obama quite like his Supreme Court nominees.

Yet Obama has consistently skipped over the judicially qualified liberals and gone for a succession of centrists... More>>
