The banishing of Tantra TANTRA is indeed dangerous…. It is a threat to all those belief systems and institutions that have “limited our potential”, stolen our power and sought to “control” through “guilt” and “fear”. That’s why it’s been literally forced underground for thousands of years. When man is in fear, even though he has been a life long atheist, he starts turning into a theist. Priests/Gurus came to know about it, and then they manipulated it down the ages. The whole past of humanity is fear ridden. And the greatest way to create fear is to make man feel guilty about natural things. He cannot drop them, and he cannot enjoy them because of the fear of hell, so he is in a double bind.
