Lesson T43 - Review of Blocking Method for Men  (Audio)

From: Yogani
Date: Sun Jun 5, 2005  7:41 am

New Visitors: It is recommended you read from the beginning of this tantra yoga archive, as previous lessons are prerequisite to this one. The first lesson is, "What is tantra yoga?"

Q: My meditation and pranayama with mulabandha are going perfectly, with symptoms you indicated in your lessons. I am very much eager to follow the tantra methods.

I started in holdback with blocking. Where should I press to stop semen from releasing -- between the anus and testicles, or between testicles and tip of organ? Please give the exact portion to press. Can I practice holdback with blocking daily?

A: Thank you for writing and sharing. I am very happy to hear practices are going well.

Tantric blocking (lesson #5) with the holdback method (lesson #4) is underneath in the perineum area, the soft area between the testicles and anus, behind the pubic bone. If you push up in there, it is soft. This is also where the heel (or substitute object) goes in siddhasana. This is the same place a woman's vagina is.

To block, we push fingers up in there and forward against the back of the pubic bone, shutting the channel of the penis (urethra) going up inside. The further up in the soft area we can comfortably do it, the better.

Yes, daily practice of holdback with blocking as necessary is okay, as long as the results are good and there is no major discomfort. That goes for all of AYP, of course. Remember, daily orgasm with blocking is not the goal. Long preorgasmic cultivation is the goal. This may end in orgasm, or not. Eventually, not orgasm very often. Make sure you use the holdback method with sexual stimulation. This is how staying power is developed, not through blocking. Blocking is the last resort for a man, an effective means to preserve sexual essences when orgasm occurs. Once staying power is established, the need for blocking becomes less and less. And, as natural vajroli arises, blocking, when it does occur, will become less and less intense -- just a finger easily placed there and it all goes up with natural vajroli. It is a long-term project and evolution. Go at your own pace.

I wish you all success on your chosen spiritual path. Enjoy!

The guru is in you.
