Understanding Kundalini

A yogi who denounces life will spend the rest of that life exploring the inner machinations of his being before he is even close to understanding his vast potential. Osho Rajneesh says, “We meditators have to move, shake, and convulse our bodies to wake the snake from its slumber”. The search for your kundalini shakti (dormant energy) is a life long quest that requires the student to give up his body and his attachment to life. You will not experience kundalini awakening in a yoga class. It’s just another gimmick 😊. We should leave it to the meditators.

“The word Kundalini generally refers to that dimension of energy, which is yet to realise its potential. There is a huge volume of energy within you which is yet to find its potential. It is just there waiting, because what you call as a human being is still in the making.”

"There was a beggar who lived in terrible poverty. He just sat under a tree and begged. People threw a few coins, and he just lived on. One day he died and his body was just lying there. He had no friends or relatives, and nobody wanted to carry him somewhere and bury him. So they decided to just bury him right there under the tree. As people began digging, they hit upon a huge treasure. Just a few feet beneath him there had been a huge treasure, a huge pot full of gold, and the fool was sitting right there all his life, begging. If only he had dug down, he would have been a very rich man. But he sat there all the time being a beggar" - Mystic's Musings, Sadhguru

Swami Vivekananda described kundalini briefly in London (1895) during his lectures on Raja Yoga as follows: "According to the Yogis, there are two nerve currents in the spinal column, called Pingala and Ida, and a hollow canal called Sushumna running through the spinal cord. At the lower end of the hollow canal is what the Yogis call the "Lotus of the kundalini". They describe it as triangular in form in which, in the symbolical language of the Yogis, there is a power called the kundalini, coiled up. When that kundalini awakes, it tries to force a passage through this hollow canal (Sushumna), and as it rises step by step, as it were, layer after layer of the mind becomes open and all the different visions and wonderful powers come to the Yogi. When it reaches the brain, the Yogi is perfectly detached from the body and mind; the soul finds itself free".
