Kundalini Miracle & Science

  1. 1. Kundalini Miracle & Science
  2. 2. Kundalini symptoms are a natural by-product when people awaken the kundalini in their body and mind. This word comes from the Hindu tradition and is used to describe a form of mysterious energy that lies dormant in all of us at the foot of our spine. When awakened this energy rises up the spine, purifies all chakras along the way until it reaches the head where it unites with its 'divine spouse' and the person reaches enlightenment. The concept of energy from our abdomen rising up to the head is not limited to Hinduism but has been known in many spiritual traditions all over the world. In Tibetan Buddhism it is called 'tummo' (literally 'fierce woman'), in parts of Taoism it is referred to
  3. 3. as 'neikung' and in the Christian tradition people have used expressions like 'the holy spirit went into him' or simply as 'grace'.
  4. 4. The ancient Rishsi (seers) described an elaborate network of 72,000 nadis, an energetic web-like system spread throughout the human body, very much like the meridians of far Eastern systems. The three most important of these nadis spiral upwards from the root of the spinal column ascending to the crown of the head and the seventh yogic chakra called Sahasrahara. The middle channel, considered the most important of all, is called Sushumana. The other two major nadis on either side of Sushmana are called Ida (the feminine/moon channel) and Pingala (the masculine/sun channel). The six yogic chakras, centers of consciousness, are located vertically above one another at specific intervals along
  5. 5. Sushmana where Ida and Pingala cross it.When it is awakened, it begins to rise through sushmana ultimately to reach sahasrahara, uniting with Param Shiva, the eternal unmanifest masculine aspect of the Divine. As it spirals upwards through sushmana, it enters the network of nadis and in ascending opens the chakras/cakras one by one as it rises. (NB:The chakras of the Indian yogic tradition do not correspond to the chakras as they have been understood and popularized in contemporary times.) It is here that we can see clearly the relationship between yoga and kundalini. As outlined through the eight limbs of yoga, yoga as a spiritual practice is a process of 'purification'. This purification
  6. 6. can be seen as preparation for the awakening and rising of it. Essentially the more purification has been achieved, the faster and more easily it will ascend to the awaiting 'union' at the crown of the head.
  7. 7. There are many differing ways for it to awaken and rise. Probably the rarest is when it rises directly to the crown of the head Sahasrahara chakra. For such a rising of it to take place a great deal of 'purification' must already have taken place, as spiritual practice in the current or other lives. Unfortunately this is often how it's awakening is thought of, and without proper understanding seems highly desirable. More commonly the process takes many many years, and may not even complete in the same lifetime that the rising began. In such an instance the process will begin again and continue in another life, sometimes beginning as early as childhood.Ideally a person has a well-established
  8. 8. and integrated spiritual practice prior to, and initiating kundalini awakening and rising. Even more ideally they have the guidance and protection of a Sat Guru or perfect master. If not, my advice would be to find one, and satisfy yourself that they are indeed a fully liberated being. Each individual experiences this opening in a unique way according to the karmic content of their unconscious. There are lots of common experiences, but each person moves into this awakening on a path of their own. Only a perfect master will be in a position to help guide someone with a kundalini rising.
  9. 9. The force in rising, initiates irreversible spiritual purification as it moves through the subtle channels of the body. This cleansing process manifest in the body as yogic 'Kriyas'. Kriyas are involuntary body movements that occur mostly during meditation or even relaxation. Swaying of the body, rapid movements of the head and shoulders, twitching and jerking, even painful looking contortions, are typical of these 'Kriyas'. Sometimes kriyas take the form of yoga asanas, with people performing them involunatrily . For the onlooker kriyas may appear strange or even frightening when we don't understand what is happening within the person. For the person experiencing them they do not cause any
  10. 10. bodily harm and can even lead to states of deep absorption. 'Kundalini', being an energy of Divine consciousness, is aware of what is the appropriate step in the process, making the practitioner perform 'Kriyas' that are specific to this end.Often of greater challenge are the mental and emotional dimensions of this transformational process. Our vasanas*, samskaras* and karmas are held, or stored, in the subconscious. The body in turn holds, or stores the subconscious. We can liken the nadis to the subtle energy storage structure of the subconscious in the body. This means that all experience from our past, that is unhealed, unresolved, or incomplete, is transmuted by it's movement upward
  11. 11. through the body towards the crown of the head 'sahasrahra'. This subconscious material, feelings, emotions, and accompanying beliefs invariably consists of trauma, pain, and fear. In the process of its transformation the egoic mind can experience depression, darkness, and emotional pain, sometimes so deep and inexplicable it seems unbearable. Obviously this can be deeply distressing, not only to the person, but also those close to them. This is exacerbated if there is no awareness of it as the cause, or spiritual process.
  12. 12. The coiled Serpentine energy known as Shakti is not to be feared of. We have to under all circumstances look at the face of the cobra with a feeling that we have to overcome the fear imbibed within us. Fearing the coiled Shakti shall be of no help.The practice of absolute celibacy brings about a radical change in the personality of a serious seeker of spirituality. As we conqueror the coiled Shakti... we shall find an enormous glow on our forehead visible to the mankind.The glow on the forehead of any human being directly represents the inner thinking process of any human being. More the glow... the higher the human being is supposed to be on the spiritual pedestal.We may indulge in this
  13. 13. awakening right now or in subsequent manifestations... there is absolutely no escape. We have to indulge in this type of awakening in one of the manifestations so that our soul (atman within our body) regains its pristine pure from at the earliest and liberates forever from the cycle of birth and death.In the last 150 years two persons have very successfully awakened their belief and realized God. Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa and Maharishi Ramana while proceeding on the path of pure spirituality in search of God had their kundalini awakened fully. It was only after their believe had awakened were they able to reach the stage of Nirvikalpa samadhi.Every true seeker of spirituality understands the
  14. 14. importance of it's awakening. If we are to realize God within our lifetime... we have to awaken our kundalini fully in this very life. Unless we take the lift straight up... we shall not reach the level of an awakened one... a living Buddha!This awakening... however fearful it may seem to be... is representative of the positive powers of the Cosmos overtaking the Satanic powers forever. Every God realized soul reaches the level of a Mahavira, Gautama Buddha, Jesus Christ or Prophet Mohammed only after having conquered the negative forces for ever by awakening of this type of belief.This awakening is better possible in a Man... The prime reason why in the whole history of mankind only two
  15. 15. ladies had awakened fully... Gargi, the bachelor philosopher and Maitreyi... the famous wife of Sage Jnanavalakya!
  16. 16. Unfortunately, this 'perfect' scenario is rarely in place when it strikes. Everybody has challenges on various levels of their life and these challenges will be amplified together with the positive aspects of the it's awakening. As a result, we may find ourselves with an array of weird symptoms, challenging emotions and confusing perceptions. When it effects our physcial body we may experiences the so-called kriyas - involuntary body movements which can be disconcerting, embarrassing or even painful.What's worse, everybody has an unconscious mind and kundalini is like a massive force that tears down the barriers to our unconsciousness. As a result, painful memories may come up - and even
  17. 17. worse - our carefully suppressed antisocial drives may also come to the surface, for example, megalomaniac thoughts, racist or sexist thoughts, inappropriate sexual urges and violent impulses. For someone who is unprepared, this onslaught of our unconscious nature can be too much to bear. It may wreak havoc with their relationships and it may make them feel as if they live in some sort of hell.How to deal with symptoms of kundalini.
