Alain Danielou – Gods of Love and Ecstasy: The traditions of Shiva and Dionysus
Free or pure eroticism, oriented towards universal beauty in all its forms, is a reflection of the divine, and is the way that leads to God, This is the higher, sublime eros.
J. Evola - Le Yoga tantrique
Metaphysically, the physical, animal act of generation is only a vain substitute for spiritual generation. The continuation of the species, ensured by the use of sex as a generative power, represents a kind of ephemeral terrestrial eternity, a facsimile of continuity.
M. Eliade, Mephistopheles et l’ Androgyne
The experience of absolute light. . . , when attained through maithuna, or sexual union, is capable of penetrating right to the heart of organic life, and of discovering there, too, in the very essence of the semen virile, the divine Light, that primordial brilliance which created the world. . . The Light experienced in maithuna is the Clear Light of Gnosis, and of Nirvanic consciousness.
