“Your house should be preferably placed near water and will have several rooms, serving to a lot of tasks. If possible the house will be surrounded by a garden with one or two rooms also. The main room will be well perfumed and will contain a soft and nice bed covered with a beautiful and clean blanket. It shouldn’t be too high, adorned with garlands and flower bouquets and two pillows, one at one end and the second at the other end. There will also be a nightstand and a small table where you should put different perfumes, natural oils and flowers.”

Environment is very important in changing the mood and it impresses pleasantly both your senses and mind. With a little interest almost any place can be turned into a real erotic temple. Using drapes, hangers, ornaments and lights can easily soften the rough lines and corners of Western architecture. Thus you create an intimate atmosphere in your home, a place in complete harmony with your spirit.

Generally the Eastern temples have got domes, archways and curved surfaces. Such forms amplify the spiritual feelings and desires by their harmonious connection with human body curves. Colours are very important too.

Red and purple stimulate, but dark blue and violet relax and refresh. Colours act directly upon the subtle power centres ( CHAKRAS ). It is best that you choose colour combinations that stimulate erotic feelings and do not inhibit them.

You should also pick a bed and furniture that are not too high so that you can create an intimate space. Carpets, mats and counterpanes are basic articles for the Tantric sexual ritual. Also of extreme importance are candles. Spread around with art they create a special atmosphere.

Fireplaces and miniature fountains may not be at your hand but lamps, fresh fruit, incense and flowers can be easily bought. Plants in general and flowers in particular can be kept up even in the city and they create a pleasant and natural environment.

It is ideal that you can introduce as many natural elements as possible into your home. So use curtains made of natural silk, plants, flower, fireplaces and a lot of wood and feather pillows. The most important thing is to keep contact with natural elements.

And because music is also very important in creating a pleasant atmosphere, these elements will be taken into consideration when you arrange a room.

Candlelight is better than electric light because the last has a non-organic frequency that doesn’t come in harmony with the subtle changes of the body during lovemaking. On the other hand the pleasant and clear candlelight relaxes and also helps your mind focus and keeps it out of worldly thoughts.

Candlelight also produces beautiful reflexes on skin that stimulate sexual appetite. The mirrors are used in order to create a certain feeling of space and, if they are set up properly, they contribute to raising the erotic potential of both lovers.

Naked bodies, coloured drapes, carpets, pillows, incense, mirrors and candlelight are very important for love. The five senses represent “the instruments” of lovers. That’s why we have to learn very carefully how to use them.

The sixth sense, the mental one, is a connecting agent. The mind is the one that discriminates best all the senses; it is the most refined and sensitive one. That’s why a pleasant ambiance will help the mind and senses work together.

Making love in a natural and pleasant ambience, in your home, is an experience completely different from the common ones. There is a specific energy in each Nature creation, a Shakti that makes it unique.

If the lovers will be able to amplify the resonance with this natural force, their erotic potential will increase and it will act as a true virile catalyst towards the supreme goal of life, which is discovering UNITY.
Transcendental aspects of physical love can thus be perceived very clearly by establishing a mystical communion between Nature’s elements. Certain unconventional and spontaneous love aspects can be awakened again and experienced as such in a village or on a beach.

When you come back to town you’ll be able to remember your erotic game underneath the stars, on a field or on the sand as a wonderful thing of life. That’s why a rock, a stone, a shell or any other object brought home after such an experience can have great importance and meaning in creating a wonderful atmosphere in the house.

Often Yogis have Tantric sexual rituals in cremation places. They say that such an environment favours the resonance with the transcendental aspects of God because it reminds the couple of death, the great gate to the world beyond.

So try to create a pleasant ambiance at home, especially in the room where you usually make love. If it’s possible, keep this room only for you so that it can practically become a sacred and magical place that can increase the erotic states experienced therein.

Lovers always need a special sanctuary for their love, a place where they can relax and experience different practices without fear of distraction or disturbances.

You should try to create a pleasant atmosphere around you, where you can invest your spirit and creativity. Thus your superior and beneficialial nature will reveal itself, enriching the whole house with divine harmony.
