Thousands of types of education and practices are described in Hinduism. Achievements are achieved by meditation. A person wants to achieve achievements because either he wants to get worldly benefits from them or spiritual benefits. Basically four types of Sadhana can be considered – Tantra Sadhana, Mantra Sadhana, Yantra Sadhana and Yoga Sadhana. There are many sub-types of all four types of meditation. The question is, what is Tantra Sadhana? On hearing the name of Tantra Vidya, Sadhana or Tantra Shastra, people get scared. It is believed that this will be some terrible education or meditation of Aghoris, but it’s not like that.
Body is important in Tantra
In simple sense, Tantra means body, Mantra means mind and Yantra means any machine or object. Another meaning of Tantra is system. Tantra believes that we are in the body, this is a reality. The physical body is the center of all our actions. Therefore, it is very important to keep this body satisfied and healthy in every way. It is necessary to increase the capacity of this body. Spirituality can be made simple through this body only. Yoga also says the same.
Tantra has nothing to do with meat, alcohol and sexual intercourse, a person who indulges in such atrocious acts can never become a Tantrik. Tantra has been defamed by people like this. The basic purpose of Tantrik Sadhana is to interview with Siddhi. For this, spiritual practices are done by being introverted.

Tantra is basically seen by connecting with Shaiva Agama Shastras, but its origin is found in Atharvaveda. Tantra Shastra is divided into 3 parts Agam Tantra, Yamal Tantra and Main Tantra. Shaivagam, Rudragam and Bhairavagam are prominent in Agam.
