A walk which will unfold the true meaning of “Tantra”. Tantra is a very ancient discipline that predates the Vedas. A tantric site in the ancient times was always known for its miracles of healing and protection. Today tantra as a disciple stands very misunderstood and misrepresented; often words like “black magic” and “sex” are used to describe it. But what is Tantra? And how it became one of the most misunderstood practices? In order to address these questions and many more we have put together an experiential walk that will trace the origin of the discipline, symbolic meanings behind the rituals and its connection with other disciplines.
The walk starts at the crafts museum, with an introduction to Tantra and moves with terrifying tales and Tantra’s deep connections. An enchanting that cannot be missed!
