SADHANA : TPPTSP | SEL0238 | SWAMI SIVANANDA
|| SADHANA FOR AWAKENING KUNDALINI ||
KUNDALINI , the serpent power or mystic fire is that primordial energy or Sakti that lies dormant in the basal Muladhara Chakra . It is an electric occult or kinetic power , the great pristine force which underlies all organic and inorganic matter .
Chakras are centers of spiritual energy situated in the Linga Sarira , astral body . They have corresponding centers in the Sthula Sarira , physical body also , just as Buddhi , understanding , intelligence , etc , which are really in the Linga Sarira , have corresponding centers in the brain also .
Kundalini can be awakened through concentration and control of Vrittis by Raja Yogins , through the grace of the Guru and devotion by Bhaktas , through the analytical will by the Jnana Yogins , and through Mantras by Mantra Yogins .
As soon as Kundalini is awakened , it pierces the Muladhara Chakra . It should be taken up to the Sahasrara Chakra through various Chakras .
When the Kundalini is awakened , the Yogi sees mentally a huge mass of golden light , enveloping the body as if to consume it . One should not at all be afraid .
The Yogi experiences different grades of Ananda and Siddhis at different Chakras . Supreme fearlessness , astral visions , mental visions , Vijnana visions , Siddhis and spiritual Ananda are the signs to denote the awakening of the Kundalini .
The Sadhana for this Kundalini Yoga should be done carefully and the space in this book will not permit me to deal with this subject in detail giving the descriptions of the various Nadis and Chakras .
Readers are requested to refer to my book KUNDALINI YOGA :
KUNDALINI TANTRA | SWAMI SATYANANDA
The book KUNDALINI TANTRA presents a systematic and pragmatic approach to the awakening of Kundalini .
It begins with an expanded understanding of the true role and potential of the body and nervous system , moving through an exhaustive examination of the different methods of awakening suitable for different personalities and conditions .
You will find clear and direct instructions on the actual yogic and tantric techniques to be practised towards this goal , together with a map of possible experiences you may encounter as the practices mature , so that you can sustain this great awakening and integrate it into a more conscious and creative way of life .
Included here is a systematic schedule of practice , within the context of a philosophy that is both pragmatic and transcendental , to prepare you in every way for this great adventure in consciousness .
