At the time of sexual intercourse with a woman, there is great joy during an orgasm. That joy speaks of God’s nature, and is of one’s own self.Verse 69
Awareness of External Joy
Verses 68 to 74 focus on the joy one experiences from the outside world. Not all these verses have to do with sex, but they are based on a single principle. When you experience joy from an external source, sometimes that joy is intense enough to cause an internal transformation. But for this to happen, one has to be aware of this joy. Awareness is important. Without awareness, no transformation can take place. The intensity of the joy causes the dormant energy, Kundalini, to rise. When that happens, one’s True Self is revealed.
The Most Intense Joy
The joy of an orgasm is probably the most intense joy one can experience from the body. Yet it is only a fraction of the joy one experiences when one is united with God. The sages of India believed that the joy of liberation is millions of times more than the joy of orgasm. Yet because of its intensity, the joy of orgasm can lead us to God. What this verse is asking us to do is to be aware of the joy experienced during orgasm. That joy may be sufficient to liberate us. This verse is different from some of the other teachings of yoga.

Yoga usually does not differentiate between men and women. That joy speaks of God’s nature and is of one’s self. Joy is the basic nature of God. It is not only the joy of an orgasm that speaks of God’s nature. Any joy experienced speaks of God’s nature. However, the intensity of the joy experienced during an orgasm indicates the infinite joy of God. That joy is of one’s self. There is no separation between God and us. The joy of God’s nature is also the joy of one’s self because there is no difference between God and one’s True Self. This joy is inherent in every one of us
