As stated by Tantra, "being-awareness Ecstasy"  involves progression toward oneself and involution toward oneself. Prakrit advances into a variety of things additionally remains awareness, being and delight. Maya shroud actuality, dividing it into alternate extremes. If not distinguished as figment, these contradicting conditions constrain the single person.
Shiva and Shakti are by and large seen as unique. Tantra confirms that the world and the singular jiva are genuine, separating itself from dualism and the qualified non-dualism of Vedanta.
Development, or the "friendly present," is just 50% of Maya. Involution takes the jiva back towards the wellspring of actuality, uncovering the unbounded. Tantra shows the changing of the "cordial present" into the "return current," uprooting the chains of Maya. This perspective underscores two adages of Tantra: "One must climb by that by which one falls," and "the precise toxic substance that slaughters turns into the remedy of life when utilized by the clever."
