In Tantra, through maithuna the male and female absorb the essence of the fluids of the partner. In vishuddha chakra, Sadasiva’s body is one with his power – Shakti. Right half of the body is the white God Sadashiva and the left half is the Goddess Shakti. While half of the tripundra is depicted, the vertical eye appears wholesome, indicating Shakti’s half. Half of the Sadashiva as Ardhanarishvara sees only with his vertical third eye as the other two are in meditative state and closed.
This third eye sees only true knowledge – Samadhi prajna of absolute bliss consciousness or Satchitananda.
Om Shiva-Shakti. Sivoham Sivoham
