“What is Kundalini actually? You experience it when the energy of the glandular system combines with the nervous system to create such a sensitivity that the totality of the brain receives signals and integrates them. The person understands the effect of the effect in a sequence of the causes. In other words, man becomes totally and wholly aware. We call it the yoga of awareness. Just as all rivers end up in the ocean, all yogas end up raising the Kundalini in man.” BLESSINGS OF KUNDALINI RISING. Tavistock Institute. Part 148
Since the 1970s Kundalini awakenings have been reported with in-creasing frequency in the West. There are perhaps two major reasons: more people have been undertaking spiritual disciplines likely to liberate the energy, and more people are aware of what Kundalini is, and therefore more likely to recognize the signs of it. Scientific research of Kundalini remains embryonic, hampered by the nonphysical nature of the energy and its unpredictability
Yoga is the art of uniting the individual soul with the Supreme Soul, of uniting the Kundalini Sakti lying dormant in the Muladhara Chakra with Siva in the … Samadhi illumines the soul and reveals the Self, by piercing the veil of ignorance.
The normal mind is incapable of piercing the veil of senses or of time and distance on account of the restrictions imposed by the very structure of the organ through which it manifests itself .
Yogis can pierce the veil of time and go back and forth from life to death and death to life insplit seconds. Yoga teaches that it is possible to pierce the veil of maya and attain mystical union with the All. This produces a state of bliss known as samadhi.
By such awakening, it pierces the veil of ignorance and also brings out mystical experiences to the meditator.
If one were able to pierce through the veil of form , he would see the relativity of both form – possessing and formless experience. The piercing of the veil between the outer consciousness and the inner being is one of the crucial movements in yoga.
Kundalini is that treasure within you which has been left unused, untapped. You could use that energy to transform this into a completely different dimension altogether; a dimension that you cannot imagine.
To understand kundalini on spiritual, energetic, and biological levels is to hold the key to chakra medicine, the ultimate goal of which is to merge our human and spiritual qualities so that every day we are alive is a brilliant one.

BLESSINGS OF KUNDALINI RISING
Yogis call the pineal gland the Thousand-Petaled Lotus, the seat of the soul. It sits at the center of the skull. When we chant in this uplifted state of Kundalini energy, those thousand petals start vibrating and stimulate the seventy-two Naadis in the body, thus creating seventy-two thousand pulses of positive energy that course through the body. The yogis say that as this happens, the lotus turns and rains nectar down upon us, cleansing the Chakras and filling us with blessings
The perception of shapes as having a certain number of petals, as being of a certain color, and being opaque or radiant is merely a summary of the visual rendering of these frequencies. In this context, the root chakra is traditionally described as having only four petals, while the crown chakra has a thousand petals. Clearly, the energy (frequency) of the root chakra is less vibrant than the energy of crown chakra that radiates with pure potential and thought. Indeed, the root chakra is a latent energy described as the dormant kundalini. This latent energy is dull and opaque. The ascension of the kundalini generates higher frequencies
No samadhi is possible without kundalin energy being awakened.
Each chakaras has its appropriate number of petals and corresponding color, Mulddhdra is represented as red lotus of four petals; Svddhisthdna as a vermilion lotus of six petals, Manipura as blue lotus of ten petals; Andhata as lotus of twelve petals of deep red color; Visuddja as lotus sixteen petals of smoky purple;, Ajfia as a lotus of two white petals, and, lastly, Sahasrdra is the thousand-petals lotus of light of a thousand suns.
The chakaras are more usually represented as lotuses. As Kundalini reaches each chakra,. That lotus opens and lifts its flower; and as soon as the she leaves for a higher chakra, the lotus closes its petals and hangs down, symbolizing the activation of the energies of the chakra and their assimilation to Kundalini. The increasing number of lotus petals, in ascending order, may be taken to indicate the rising energy or vibration-frequencies of the respective chakras, each functioning as ‘transformer’ of energies from one potency to another.
A man’s soul is automatically attracted towards God as it is as part of Him. But when he assumes his affinity with Prakriti (maya or Matter), he is disinclined from God and is inclined to the world. This attraction is called lust or desire or hope or ambition. The thing that is desired is perishable, constantly changing in color and pattern like a kaleidoscope, while the self is eternal and unchanging. But he by identifying himself with the Prakriti and body and tries to please the body from these worldly things. This attraction or attachment lead him to the cycle of birth and death thus nothing but the misery and unhappiness. But if he practices any one of the disciplines, such as Knowledge (Samkhya yoga), action (Karma yoga), or devotion (Bhakti yoga) he can be free from the cycle of birth and death.
The final objective of Kundalini raising may take many years. It is achieved when the Kundalini, or kunda power, reaches the final chakra point inside the skull. With a psychic explosion it is said to awaken a ten-thousand-petal lotus. This is a graphic way of describing complete cosmic consciousness and god-realization. Descriptions are vivid. Brilliant stars and flaming tongues are seen. A realized person sees an entire world inside of his head complete with its own miniature mountain, lake, sun, and moon. In the midst of this world, the god Siva is seen enthroned. This is union, absorption, identity. The transcendent state of being-consciousness-bliss has been reached.
To free the human mind from words and explanations is one of the main aims. As long as we try to explain things, we are bound by karma; trapped in our conceptual network. To transcend words and explanations meant to break the bonds of karma and attain liberation.
Rajneesh taught that the human mind is our “chief villain,” for it acts like a prism, dividing one ray into many. The mind is the source of bondage because it can only see an object by separating it from others, by labeling or categorizing it.
Most people’s journey through life is one of suffering and joy. Our aim is to decrease the suffering and increase the joyfulness, and this can only be achieved through the rising of the ambrosial current within us. This is sometimes called the divine source or universal energy, or power of the Holy Spirit (Christianity) or Kundalini (Hinduism) or Secret energy of the Golden Flower (Taoist) or thousand petals Lotus (Buddhism). It has been given many names but the gift and the experience is one and the same, irrespective of what religious leaders preach, or what scientists teach.
Science has come a long way we now know that our Sun is one of billions of stars in the galaxy and that it converts six hundred million tons of hydrogen into helium every second, and has been doing so for more than four billion years. Scientists now tell us that every atom in our bodies, the heavier ones being in our bones, was present in stars billions of years ago! We know that everything on earth is made up of millions upon millions of atoms. Energy is released when atoms split or undergo fission. When it splits into two it releases energy as light, heat and radiation.
It also produces neutrons, tiny particles of the split atom, which causes fission in other atoms, to cause a chain reaction.
The energy released when a chain reaction occurs is enormous. In the same way when these chakras are energized they produce their own electromagnetic field of light similar to a laser beam.
Science has already shown us that a laser beam is a beam of very pure light which is so powerful it can drill a tiny hole in a diamond, slice through steel plates, and help in delicate surgical operations.
So then this pure light of divine energy gives us the energy and vitality to heal our bodies and enables us to cope well in traumatic situations. In other words it makes us truly powerful people; but in order to activate this energy, it is essential to keep these chakras open to receiving and expressing this life- force vital energy.
We have the choice to use it or lose it. It is like controlling the brain centres, but unlike the brain they are not yet visible to the intellectual mind. However, as scientific research reveals more and more of the workings of the human brain perhaps, in the not too distant future, these energy centres too will be revealed to the intellectual mind.
