Tantric Poetry: My Lord of the Living Light

Peter Wilberg

This collection of tantric poetry stands in the tradition of mystical poetesses and seers such as Lalla and Akka. Its source is not the sort of New Age 'neo-tantrism' that uses the language of tantra only to offer pseudo-spiritual 'mood music' for the sensual intensification of bodily sex and intimacy. Instead the language of these poems expresses direct, lived experiences of tantra understood in the traditional sense - as a deeply sensual intimacy and intercourse with the Divine. The primary medium of this intercourse is not the sexuality of the physical body but that of the soul and its body. This is our body of sensual, feeling awareness - born from the Great Mother's womb of rich and fertile Darkness into the spacious Living Light of the Lord
