Yogi Tip #17, Experience White Tantric Yoga®
White Tantric Yoga® and Meditation
White Tantric Yoga® is the highest form of the practice of Kundalini Yoga. Yogis of all levels come together and sit in pairs, in rows, in group meditation to use the power of the group consciousness to break through subconscious blockages in the mind to life a clearer, more joyful, empowered and connected life.
Our minds move through 1000s of thoughts every single day. Some of these thoughts get lost in the unconscious, and some get stuck in the subconscious and affect the conscious mind. These thoughts become feelings, emotions, desires, multi-realities or fantasies. Instead of mastering our mind, often our mind and thoughts direct us, which can cause impulsive decisions, poor communication and self-imposed stress.
White Tantric Yoga® enables you to break through these subconscious blocks, so you can have a more enjoyable life. In the shortest time, you can experience release from a lot of the burden you carry in your mind.
When you see and act on each moment with clarity, you can gain a deeper understanding of yourself and your life can change. Your mind, body, and soul can act together as one. This is the path to personal freedom and awareness, and will bring more success to every area of your life.

What To Expect from White Tantric Yoga
White Tantric Yoga® is done in pairs as a group meditation. You sit facing a partner and follow instructions for meditation given on video by the Mahan Tantric, Yogi Bhajan. A representative of the Mahan Tantric will be present to facilitate White Tantric Yoga®.
Each workshop consists of between six and eight kriyas. A kriya is a meditation incorporating one or all of the following:
- A yoga posture (asana)
- A breathing technique (pranayam)
- A mental focus and/or a mantra
- A hand position (mudra)
Sometimes the kriyas are accompanied by music. These kriyas vary in length up to sixty-two minutes. There are breaks in between each kriya. The environment is peaceful, and the atmosphere is friendly, supportive and uplifting. A vegetarian lunch is provided.
How it Works
Envision the energy of the universe as both parallel and perpendicular in nature, like a cloth woven together. As a cloth becomes stronger when it is stretched on the diagonal. so the White Tantric Yoga® diagonal. or ‘Z’ energy is stronger. This energy, when directed by the Mahan Tantric, cuts through the blocks that are stuck in the subconscious mind.
Using the diagonal energy, the Mahan Tantric, Yogi Bhajan, connects his subtle body to the subtle bodies of the participants through the course facilitator . This works the same way as a worldwide telephone system that relies on satellites and electromagnetic energy in order to connect two parties.
White Tantric Yoga® should not be confused with black or red tantric .Those forms of yoga also transform energy, but in a different way and for different purposes. Black tantric directs the energy to manipulate other human beings and red tantric directs the energy solely for sexual purposes.
About the Mahan Tantric
Yogi Bhajan became Master of Kundalini Yoga at the age of 16 in his native India. He came to the West in 1968. The authority to be the Mahan Tantric, Master of White Tantric Yoga®, was bestowed on him in 1970. The practice of White Tantric Yoga® , as with most sacred Eastern wisdom, had previously been a tradition passed on from teacher to student in a mystical and selective way. As a pioneer of the Aquarian Age, Yogi Bhajan decided to open the experience of White Tantric Yoga® to anyone who wanted to commit to the discipline. In 1970 in Los Angeles, for the first time in history.White Tantric Yoga® was taught publicly.
Until 1986, Yogi Bhajan traveled throughout the world presenting as many as thirty workshops each year to thousands of students. In 1987, using his unique abilities as Master, together with modern technology, he began to present White Tantric Yoga® as a video-taped series which has the same effect as when he was physically present. He said the videos would continue to have the same effect when he was no longer in his physical body. This has proven true, and in fact since his passing from his physical body in October, 2004, thousands of students have confirmed that their White Tantric Yoga® experience is one of being in his presence.
