What does the word yoni mean?

Yoni is translated from Sanskrit as the sacred temple. And it refers to the female genitalia, vulva.

Our pussies have been called so many different names: “down there”, “pipi”, “hole”, “cockpocket”, “hairy mussel”, “goodies”, “honey pot”, “kitty”…

I bet you will agree that none of it really expresses the magic, power and sacredness that is within the most feminine part of the female body.

What is yoni, really?

Yoni is a portal to life.

It is a place from where all life originated. It is a cosmic gate through which we all came here. It is the most feminine part of our body. The most receptive, the most sensitive… So if we want to establish a deep connection with the feminine, yoni is the place where we should start.

In Taoist love poetry such terms as “golden lotus”, “gates of paradise”, “precious pearl”, “treasure” are used to describe the yoni…

And what is yoni puja?

A yoni puja is a sacred tantric ritual during which the yoni is worshipped. We express adoration for the feminine principle, we express our complete love and appreciation of the feminine essence in all her forms.

This ritual originated in India, thousands of years ago. There are many various forms in which this ritual can be performed.

An important prerequisite for worshipping the yoni is the purification of the mind from worldly ideas about yoni, of the shame and guilt most of us carry.
