Friends, mount Karol is a very attractive mountain in the Himalayas. It is shaped like a Shivling. While climbing above the plains, it appears to be located at the entrance of high mountains. We will discuss its psycho-scientific contributions related to my Kundalini in this post today.
My birth relationship with mount Karol
I was born in the eyes of this mountain, and grew up in front of it. This highest mountain in the vicinity stood like a witness before me all the time. It always kept witnessing to my deeds, and inspired me on the way. It never let me allow ego. As soon as I ever felt a little ego, he used to say, “I am the greatest and the highest, yet I never have ego; then why do you have ego in front of me even as small as a worm”. My ego used to be destroyed by this taunt. With that, the Kundalini of my mind used to start glowing. I used to travel and visit this mountain, because most of my friends, relatives and means of livelihood were on this mountain. Every morning when I was offering water to the sun, it was rising from behind this mountain. Due to this, that holy water of worship could also be used by the mountain itself. Unknowingly, that mountain had become my favorite deity and friend.
Over time, my Kundalini became strongly associated with mount Karol
While giving water to the sun, the Kundalini, which grew in my mind, connected itself with Karol mountain. The sun cannot be seen directly, nor does the sun god remain in front of the eyes all day. But that mountain was always in front of the eyes. For a long time, he could also be seen with a straight eye. While working, when I would lift my head a little, then that mountain would come to my sight suddenly, and along with it my kundalini attached to it. In this way, my Kundalini remained with me throughout my life, and continued to grow. As a result, I also got momentary enlightenment with the view of the same beautiful mountain, and Kundalini awakening was also found under the shadow of his feet.
The shape of the Karol mountain like a Shivling also helped in the development of my Tantric Kundalini
Shivpuran has been shown to have a lot of spiritual significance in the shape of Shivling. There, worship of Shivling is considered to be the best. Just think, when the Shivalinga of a small domestic size has so much importance, then why the mountain with the shape of Shivalinga will not matter. This will increase the importance of shivlingam manifold, because due to the vastness, infallibility, immortality, and egolessness of the mountain, respect for him is greater anyway. That is why the mountain is also considered a deity. This is why people go to the picturesque mountains for spiritual practice. By the way, when seen from different angles, that mountain was seen in different shapes, although the beautiful shape like a Shivling was seen more from my house and the surrounding area. This means that the actual shape is not as important as the figure in our awareness. Due to the subtle tantric importance of Shivalinga, the shikhara or peak of the temple has some cone or dome shape. This shape is actually associated with the base or muladhar chakra, and the same is responsible is for its strength. The form of Mount Kailash is similar, and is probably the most consistent with Tantra. That is why here is said to be the abode of Lord Shiva.
A mountain is like a human absorbed in a meditative practice
For this reason, the form of the mountain has been associated with the form of Lord Shiva. His flora is Shiva’s hair. The river-stream and waterfalls originating from it is the Ganges River originating from Shiva’s coir. The moon rising on him is a beautiful crescent of Shiva’s forehead. The people and wildlife living inside him are in the form of a snake wrapped on Shiva. His non-vegetative and rocky terrain is in the form of naked part of Shiva’s body.
The mountain has its own form as the form of yogi during the Kundalini awakening
This state is a mixed form of existence, nonexistence, and perfection. Even in the state of intoxication, both existence and nonexistence are both together, but existence does not have full potential. The state of nonexistence in the mountain soul is in the form of consciousness devoid of duality and judgment, the state of existence is as the bliss of existence, and the state of perfection is as the perfect bliss of perfect existence. This perfection is in the form of supreme experience. It can also be known as zero or shoonya of Buddhist (neither existence, nor nonexistence). Like the mountain, all other inanimate substances are as super conscious as the Kundalini awakening experience, not lifeless. That is why during the Kundalini awakening everything seems to be the same to one along with perfect bliss and super conscious. Lord Krishna understood this omnipresent form of Mount Govardhana, so he could escape from the wrath of the god Indra and could also save the villagers of Vraj. The villagers considered Govardhan Parvat as their local deity, which was limited and isolated. This narrative also seems like a metaphor to me. Indra is a symbol of city dwellers and people living in plain geographical area with arrogance of development and resources. Govardhan Parvat is a symbol of the natural and lush green valleys of the village. Vrajwasi (villagers of Krishna home village Vraja) is the symbol of an illiterate, rural, hilly, backward, superstitious and egoistic man of narrow thinking. It is worth noting here that the ego is in both the townspeople as well as the villagers. However, in townspeople there is an arrogance of highness and artificiality, and in rural people of lowliness and nature. These two types of ego collide. A man devoid of both these types of egos is like a knowledgeable Krishna who, mixed with both these types of people, remains untouched by their ill effects.
