Gratitude Helps People Create New Relationships

A new study has found that expressing gratitude helps people create new relationships.
A new study from the University of New South Wales has found that expressing gratitude to new acquaintances will earn you friends. The study was put together to explore a theory that suggests that gratitude helps people create new relationships, build on the ones they already have, and help to maintain both. In an effort to test the “new relationships” aspect of that theory, researchers studied 70 university students who gave advice to younger peers. The students were told that they were mentoring high school students and critique their university admissions essays. Afterwards, the mentors received handwritten notes from their faux mentees, and only about half of those notes included an expression of thanks for assisting them with their essays. The mentors who were thanked were more likely to give the younger students their contact information and presumably continue the friendship. The mentors also reported warmer personalities when it came to the grateful mentees, and that warmth is probably why grateful people make lots of friends. Read more

The Single Biggest Factor That Determines the Success of a Romantic Relationship

Erwan Davon reveals the single biggest factor that determines the success of a romantic relationship.
What is the single biggest factor that determines the success of a romantic relationship? We all know that most romantic relationships don't last as long as they could.

Yoga for Premature Ejaculation

Premature ejaculation is completely a natural occurrence. Most men suffer from the problem at some point. However, premature ejaculation can limit a man's practice of Tantric sex, which involves sustaining lovemaking long enough to build sexual energy to a high level. Desensitizing creams and methods defeat the entire purpose of Tantric sex, which is to enjoy the pleasurable sensations of lovemaking. Yoga is a natural way to develop the body's ability to control ejaculation. The sex yoga poses in this routine can tone your urogenital area, strengthen your pelvic floor muscles and stimulate your prostate gland.

The Practice of Tantra Mantras

If you have heard of mantras in Tantra, but are not sure of what they are or why they are used, this brief introduction to the practice of Tantra mantras should clear things up.
Introduction

Mantra means in Sanskrit language, 'liberation of the mind' referring to the techniques employed, known as Mantra Yoga. Mantra Yoga is according to the yoga tradition, a valid way to obtain liberation (Moksha) (see note 1). A widely accepted classification is to be of five kinds viz. Pinda, Kartari, Bija, Mantra and Mala. This classification takes into account the number of syllables, thus for the Bija Mantra there are three to nine syllables. Basically the tantric Mantras are Bija Mantras with some rare exceptions when the number of syllables could be more or less than the usual range. This article is mainly about Bija Mantras. Read more
