Friends, I got a golden opportunity to visit Mata Vaishno Devi shrine a few days ago. I will tell you important things about it later on. But one thing that I found new was about sitting in a proper way. During that journey, my Kundalini was hitting the boom.
Keeping a straight back like a pole is not called a proper method of sitting
Earlier I used to understand that the back should be straight like a pole. It is not so actually. The normal bend in the back should remain at its full depth. The proper position of the back is like a snake, as I have described in detail in previous post. In this, a pit is formed on the back at lumbar region, in the direction of the navel. Then the back goes up outwardly. Finally, there is a bending of the head towards the inside. At level of the navel, the deeper the pit will be on the back, the more straight the back will be considered. This will create a stretch / spasm on a point on the lower back (on the hip), that is the Swadhisthana Chakra in the back, where the Kundalini will shine. In fact, the Kundalini will shine well on all the chakras of such back. By meditating on the back as a snake, this stretch manifests with Kundalini on each chakra. An upward stretch is also felt.
Learn to sit properly from the car’s driving seat
The driving seat (bucket seat) of most modern cars is like a tight body fit. It has to fit the body in minimum space. According to physiology, more the man keeps his back in its natural posture, the more the muscle tone (strength) of his body will increase. Together, healthy breath / abdominal breath will also improve. With this, he will be able to adjust his body, especially his longer legs, well and comfortably even in a small space.
My kundalini on driving seat
I had a medium sized car. The car was the best, but its driving seat seemed to me somewhat tight. With a natural and compensatory process / inspiration, I kept my back straight on that seat. I started placing a folded towel in the pit area of the lumbar region of my back as said above. That towel used to support that pit, and I also experienced the pleasant touch of the pit. At that pit point, my Kundalini used to shine very much, which used to run on all the chakras from Sahasrara to Muladhar often. There was a lot of bliss, peace, and the real driving was the same. I used to feel like I fit in the cockpit of a fighter plane. Initially, I thought that why I had bought an expensive car with a tight seat, but later the reality was revealed. Perhaps influenced by the same seating, I was inspired to start practicing Kundalini Yoga.
Unique Kundalini Yoga with the help of a good chair-table
An appropriately-sized chair is very beneficial, in which the entire back can remain stable throughout the depth of its natural position. Lumbar support of proper bulge should be in proper place. It should have headrest in proper place. The headrest should be almost straight up the neck. A slight tilt can be given backwards. In fact, the back on the chair should be perfectly aligned with a snake raising its hood. Arms rest should be at the height where the elbow of the straight arm is located. They should be straight forward. The legs should climb towards the knees, so that the level of the knees is higher than the level of the hip. Many people say that it causes knee pain. To avoid this, the slopes of the legs can be reduced slightly, or the knees can be strengthened with exercises. The legs should not extend forward, as this worsens the natural shape of the back. The more the legs have shrunk towards the body, the more robust the natural back will be. The car’s thoughtfully made driving seat is similar to this. With this posture, man remains most alert and mindful. Kundalini is also strengthened by this posture. It also proves that with Kundalini, a man becomes alert, contemplative and developing.
Now let’s talk about the table. Good if there is an adjustable height table. The table should be at such a height so that the natural position of the back does not deteriorate, and there is no burden on the eyes while reading the book on it. This height is straight up to the level of the elbow. The chair is also better if it is adjustable / hydraulic.
A similar incident happened with Premyogi vajra. He made the above type of chair and table fit into a small room. It was light, inexpensive, improvised, old-fashioned and made of tin. Nevertheless, it developed a proper posture of his back. He would sit on it day and night and study continuously. From that, his study also reached to peak, and also his Kundalini.
Scientific basis for proper back seating
Possibly, sitting with a natural back makes the spine completely relaxed and efficient. All sensations travel up and down through the spine/spinal cord. Scientifically, Kundalini is the supreme sensation of the body.
