I remembered when I first heard about the word “Kundalini” was from my former yoga teacher some 14 years ago, she warned me about the danger of awakening this innate energy which could lead to many disorders like hallucination, sex perversion, depression and mental breakdown. At that time the space I received this information was from fear, not the right understanding. From this misunderstanding, the cognition I made at that time was not to awaken my Kundalini energy for fear of all the dangers.
It was only after I met my master, Paramahamsa Nithyananda that I was given the right context from the enlightened consciousness which helped me to drop all the fears and welcome the awakening of this innate potential energy within me.
Here I would like to put the right context and understanding about Kundalini energy given by my master.
- What is Kundalini?
Kundalini Shakti(energy) is an extraordinary inner potential energy which is in every human being, it is the inner potential bio-energy, the possibility for God. The seed of God in man is Kundalini. If this seed is nurtured, awakened, activated, simply God happens in us! It is in the form of seed. Our godliness or our godhood is from Kundalini. In short, Kundalini is the source of our godliness.
The Kundalini energy is the bridge between man and God. It is the source of the energy in all of us. Kundalini energy is responsible for whether we experience emotional fulfilment, Bhakthi (devotion), we experience enlightenment through devotion, or we experience enlightenment through knowledge and wisdom. Whatever achievement happens in our life, whether in the form of wealth or in the form of power or in the form of health, or in the form of happiness, or in the form of fulfilment, everything in life, Kundalini is the source. If the Kundalini energy can be awakened and directed, it can get anything we want.
Whatever we think is lacking in us, that completion is our Kundalini. Kundalini will simply complete us when it is awakened. Kundalini energy is the fulfilment of our lowest basic incompletions like sex, hunger to the highest fulfilment and completion like Enlightenment, expressing the Cosmic Union. When this energy is awakened, the basic incompletions like hunger, sex, all that gets completely completed and it raises the very level we perceive our self. This is one of the most powerful methods to transform our perception about our self.
- What does it bring to our life if we awaken this energy?
When systematically awakened, it can add to extraordinary power, strength and energy. It is time-tested, fool-proof, side-effect free science, evolved, experimented, experienced, and expressed by the great Vedic inner scientists – rishis. Not only can it bring tremendous physical health, mental health, emotional fulfilment but it can also manifest extraordinary experiences and powers and joy in your personality.
In one recent research conducted in Inner Awakening programme on the participants by Nithyananda Dhyanapeetam, it showed that within 18 days of Kundalini initiation, all of the participants experienced 1,300% increase in mitochondria cell energy. Usually the mitochondria cell energy can increase to maximum of only 25 to 30% from Yoga practice or physical workout. When the Kundalini energy is awakened, not only does it bring tremendous energy into our mitochondria cell energy levels, it completely recreates, rejuvenates our inner organs, energy levels. Kundalini awakening makes one look young because when the mitochondria cell increases, the degradation process of our cell energy stops. The ageing process stops. Not only will we look young, we will be young. This is the best technique to grow young.
Kundalini awakening alters the very setup of human’s basic units of the body. The DNA at the molecular level, the most basic unit of our physical construction is thoroughly awakened by Kundalini awakening.
- What are the methods to awaken Kundalini?
Kundalini energy can be awakened by various methods, including fear and greed. Even fear and greed awakens the Kundalini, but, each time the fear or greed awakens Kundalini, it actually weakens us!
The other methods to awaken the Kundalini Shakti are:
i. Right understanding and creating the right context;
ii. Meditation techniques
iii. Altered breathing or pranayama
iv. Kriyas – the combination of breathing, visualization, verbalisation, all these processes put together is called “Kriya”.
v. Mantra – verbalisation through sound vibrations
vi. Will power – by your very will from the right context
vii. Herbs – Ayurvedic or Siddha herbs like neem or Haritaki powder
viii. Yantras – Powerful energy centres like Mt Kailash, Angkor Wat temple etc
ix. An enlightened master’s presence
- Why is this not expressing itself in everyone?
Fundamentally, each one decides what they want to become in life and put their attention in that direction, and they become that. So, Kundalini also awakens in people who want it, who are ready to experience it, who are really interested in it.
- Why is it emphasized that Guru directly should be involved in Kundalini awakening?
Kundalini awakening is about activating the life energy in you, it should be done directly by an enlightened Master who is master of this science, in his presence, so that the Kundalini is not only awakened, but it is also made to travel in the proper direction. You trying to awaken your own Kundalini is equivalent to you trying to do open heart surgery for yourself! Unless it is your guru who has already proved that he is a master of this science, it is not advisable to go for any of these Kundalini processes. In Vedic tradition, it is very important to have a Siddha Guru, means an enlightened Guru, not only who has experienced his Kundalini completely awakened, but who has also awakened thousands of people’s Kundalini.
Here is the scale to find out whether your Master is master of Kundalini: He can awaken anybody’s Kundalini just by his casual will! Just by a small gesture, just by a small command, anybody’s Kundalini will be awakened! He will be the master of the Kundalini snake. From my own experience, if you have the right Master, there won’t be any problem and side-effect by awakening your Kundalini. You will have only good effects. According to Paramahamsa Nithyananda, awakening the Kundalini energy can heal many diseases including cancer just in forty-eight hours!
In essence, Kundalini awakening when it is done by an enlightened master is the best thing that can happen to you because he not only heals you from all the diseases and makes you look young with a new body-mind, he also puts you on the path to Self-Realisation to ultimately experience God in you. Namaste 😀
