What is the role of the feminine in Tantra?

Everything that is movement, and consequently life (micro-cosmic or macro-cosmic), is in reality the action of Shakti, the Cosmic Mother, who embraces everything and is at the same time beyond everything. By acknowledging these aspects, it becomes easy to understand why Esoteric Tantra Yoga promotes the re-evaluation and revalorization of women as the physical embodiment of Shakti on Earth. Esoteric Tantra Yoga says that Shakti manifests fully and completely in beautiful, vital and spiritual women, who are full of love and the power of transformation, and are able to inspire and guide themselves and others on the path towards the Supreme Self, the Godly Nature that resides in all beings.
