Type of Spiritual Experience

Background

The Tirumantiram is a Tamil poetic work written in the fifth century by Tirumular and is the tenth of the twelve volumes of the Tirumurai, the key texts of Shaiva Siddhanta and the first known Tamil work to use the term.

The Tirumantiram is the earliest known exposition of the Shaiva Agamas in Tamil. It consists of over three thousand verses dealing with various aspects of spirituality, ethics and praise of Shiva. But it is more spiritual than religious.

According to historian Venkatraman, the work covers almost every feature of the siddhar cult of the Tamils. According to another historian, Madhavan, the work stresses on the fundamentals of Siddha medicine and its healing powers. It deals with a wide array of subjects including astronomy and physical culture.

Pleasure of Sex Union Is Endless When Breath Savouring Is the Only Way.

Anointing her body with unguents diverse - Bedecking her tresses with flowers fragrant - Do you enjoy the damsel in passion's union:-If your desire becomes devotion - Prana will shoot up through the Spinal Pathway - Then your enjoyment will be endless.

Only Those who Have Practiced Khecari Can Resort to Pariyanga.
