Tantra is very much the ‘middle way’ that characterises all Buddhist vehicles. The ‘middle way’ might be better translated as: ‘the way that rejects all referential co-ordinates’ – ‘the way that doesn’t seek to locate itself in known or knowable territory’. This is the way that doesn't hold any kind of position or stance for establishing a fixed definition of being. It doesn’t say: ‘I am here because that is there’; ‘I am now because I was then, and so I will be in the future’. It doesn’t say: ‘I think therefore I am.’ In fact – it simply rejects all ‘therefores’.
