“Kundalini shines like ten millions lightnings and is without form; she is with fifty mantra-sound units and mantras; she is endowed with thirty-eight forms of superpower (kala); she pierces the three knots (Brahma, Wishnu and Rudra granthis) and is in Muladhara; and she is all spiritual knowledge”.
What is Kundalini Yoga?
According to Traditional Tantra Yoga, Kundalini is our true potential which is lying dormant because of living a compromised life based on illusions. Until we don’t learn to live with the totality of life in the moment, confusion and suffering prevail. It is very common to get used to live a miserable life with no substance to it.
Those who are tired of living a self-centered, isolated and painful life with no meaning, for them Kundalini Yoga is the secret key to unlock the bliss and joy which was repressed by the systems and their conditioning. It is a breakthrough from all the divisions and comparisons to shine as a pure being.
According to Tantric Masters, Kundalini is the life force or subtle energy that lies at the base of our spine coiled like a serpent and rises up the spine piercing all the 12 main Tantric chakras and merging with beyond. Chakras are not only particular parts of your physical body, but mainly different vortex of energies and states of consciousness. In Tantra, the continuous flow of energy throughout the chakras is referred to as “Shakti” or pure consciousness or Kundalini. When all the energies or Shaktis are understood, then we can allow them to be free and create our reality of abundance.
As the Kundalini unfolds, the secret of femininity reveals its true essence, not the so-called femininity learnt from others. This is why Goddesses are worshipped in India as a manifested energy of Kundalini as love and compassion. It is a dance of inner intelligence born out of freedom.
As Tantra says that Kundalini is ultimate freedom, there is no end and beginning to it, it is eternity beyond time and space. It is bliss beyond all opposites and intellectualism. It is a heartbeat of the universe vibrating in our hearts.
Why awakening our Kundalini?
Until our potential is not manifested biologically, psychologically, emotionally and spirituality, we can not feel fulfilled or at home with ourselves. When we are at ease with ourselves only then we can experience a different dimension of living which has love, creativity and compassion, beyond comparison and words. We live in a male chauvinistic society, until our true femininity is rediscovered there is no completeness and satisfaction in life.
Kundalini remains blocked till we are trying to become something which we are not. A life which is borrowed from others cannot have the flavor of freedom. Kundalini blooms naturally as one allows oneself to grow naturally according to its own nature.
So, the science of Kundalini Yoga shows how to let go what we are not and just be what we really are. It is a way of living in the mystery of life beyond all guilt and fears given by others or oneself. The moment we are ready to see directly with our own eyes which are not stuck in the history and its traumas, that very moment intelligence functions. It’s a flowering of intelligence and love to live day to day life as a play.
The common misconceptions about Kundalini
Many believe that practicing Kundalini Yoga is mainly a physical act of purifying the body that will result in awakening an energy. Sure the body should be ready, vitalized and purified to welcome this energy to rise safely, but many Kundalini Yoga practitioners are physically suffering because they force this energy to rise mentally. It can damage the brain and the nervous system to force it this way. It’s a no mind experience. When mind is quiet, naturally this mysterious goddess starts waking up with a hissing sound.
It is important to understand that Kundalini is you, there is no division, we are that life force, the power that will rise by shifting our consciousness without any greed to attain somewhere.
Only then we can allow this energy to rise freely and safely. When we wake up to a higher consciousness, our Kundalini will wake up, when we are open to life and easy with ourselves, our energy flows freely through the chakras. According to the degree of our awakening and consciousness, our Kundalini starts unfolding and awakening.
Kundalini is not a goal to achieve or another experience to accumulate, rather sensing the true bliss of life which is already there, beyond all experiences.
How to awaken our Kundalini?
We first need to vitalize our senses and express our creativity and true nature. Our senses become dull through living a very limited or insensitive life because society doesn’t allow us to fully express ourselves, so we live in partiality and that blocks all the energies and leads us to overthink, overeat, and become oversexed.
Here, we use the essence of all Asiatic Mysticism to make us aware of the subtle energies of chakras, spiritual bodies, pranas, breath, subtle bodies, sounds, vibrations, visualizations, recognition, elements and the senses which are connected with the pure consciousness to untap this free flow of blissful life, our Kundalini Shakti.
To understand and free these energies, we also use practical philosophy inspired by Traditional Tantra Yoga. ‘Tantra‘ is a science to crack the code of our true nature or our freedom. It doesn’t teach us to control our mind, but rather makes us aware of it through self-inquiry and direct seeing, so we can use it to support our true nature, live a good family life, manifest abundance, live fearlessly, contented, focused, healthy, creative, spontaneously and playfully.
Mukta Kundalini Tantra Yoga is a complete practical science to awaken the Kundalini. It is not based on beliefs but facts. Those who are ready to see the facts as facts, not as they want to see, then the true intelligence manifest in many ways.
Then life is just a play, or as Indian mysticism calls it, Leela.
