Friends, People tell their own remedies to calm the nonsense thoughts of the mind. I find Kundalini meditation the best way. Suddenly the noise of the mind becomes silent. This I have been describing continuously in many previous posts. I have named this as the collision of prana and apana on the kundalini chakras. It is like attending mental thoughts and base chakras together. In the previous post, I was telling that breath holding pranayama can prevent stroke and heart diseases. My guess turned out to be correct. I attended an online yoga meeting this week. In that research was showing, according to which breathing exercise along with full expansion of chest with inbreathing reduces blood pressure. However I find that holding the breath lowers the blood pressure much more. When I used to do empty breathing exercises, I did not realize it, but when I started doing Pranayama with breath holding, my blood pressure dropped to 70-100. The normal level is 80-120. When I asked the expert in the meeting if this could happen, he said that it is normal to fall so low, but not too much. They were telling something big that this chemical is released in the wall of blood vessel, that reaction takes place etc. I didn’t understand that much. I take care of actually important work. The biggest laboratory or proof is experience. In the field of spirituality, if science is more limited to experience, it is better. If proof is found from scientific experiment, then people can use the proof of their experience even less. I am not against scientific experiments, but if someone does not refer to his own experience to prove something, but only refers to scientific experiment, then there is less vitality in it. One who knows the importance of yoga, he will try to experience it himself without scientific experimentation and only by taking the experience of others as proof. Then I was talking about how important it is to adopt the Vedic life tradition filled with yoga in order to achieve mass awakening. One day everyone will have to wake up. How long will people keep ignoring the truth? If a pigeon trapped in a cat’s paw closes its eyes, the cat does not run away.
All the feelings of the mind are offered in the form of Prana to the God as Kundalini
God says in the Gita that surrender all your sorrows, thoughts, happiness and everything to me. This is a reference to Kundalini Yoga. God is Kundalini in it. In the collision of prana and apana, the thoughts of the brain as the prana energy is thrown on the Kundalini, which causes the Kundalini to shine. That is what it is to offer or to perform a havan. The verse of Gita also indicates the same to be offered to Prana in Apana. The brain thought of Prana is put on the Kundalini of Apana located on the lower chakras. Kundalini fire ignites from it. The Havan of Prana in Prana is also written there. In that everything in life is in the mind as prana. Kundalini in the form of God is on the heart chakra. There is prana residing in both the mind and the heart as per yoga. I had said in the previous post that Kundalini should be meditated with Jyotirlinga and Shivbindu on the chakra. Perhaps that is why those places are named chakra, because when those who meditate on the Jyotirlinga or Shivling on the chakra of the backside, then the Shivbindu appears on its counterpart on the front chakra. The chakra also means a hollow wheel.
An ideal awakening should start from Kundalini itself, and end only on Kundalini
I was also saying that if the river of energy reaches the brain from Muladhara, and at that time the Kundalini is not dominant in the brain, then the thoughts or pictures there flash with great clarity, but do not awaken. But if the energy remains there for long and with higher magnitude, then awakening also occurs. Then one feels his complete association with all things, which is called complete non-duality. But no particular picture is recognizable as primary, from which the full merger has started. It is also not recognizable because a person has not made a special mental picture in the form of Kundalini for cultivation. Meaning he is not even doing Kundalini sadhna. Of course, Kundalini becomes strong in the mind later to express spirituality, but it seems improvised and temporary to me. Permanent and real Kundalini seems to me the same, in which awakening starts in the brain and in which it seems to end. It starts with the remembrance of that Kundalini. Then, as soon as the awakening is over, Kundalini descends from the brain and appears to come on the Agya Chakra, and from there on the Anahata Chakra. Then it can be easily revolved on all the chakras. Although every type of awakening is beneficial, but I would call the awakening starting from Kundalini the best.
The flow of Kundalini energy moves alternately in the right, left and middle part of the body, like the breath flowing through the nostrils
Yogasanas are done so that somewhere the Kundalini energy gets caught. This energy is throughout the body. But sometimes it is more effective on some chakra and sometimes on another chakra. Therefore, due to the stress or bend of the joints of the whole body, it gets caught somewhere. I got a new practical experience this week. The yogasana, which is done alternately on both the left and right sides of the body, is done to uplift the energy from the left and right main nadis. Due to this the energy balances itself and comes in the middle nadi. It is difficult to transfer the energy directly through the middle nadi. The left nadi is called Ida, the right one is called Pingala and the middle one is called Sushumna. For example, when I do Shalabhasana with the left arm and right leg raised, the Kundalini energy rises above through the Ida nadi on the left. It goes through the left brain. From there I redirect it diagonally to the command chakra. Its name is command or agya chakra because it commands kundalini energy to go straight in middle channel. With this energy tries to reach Sushumna by descending down and then climbing up from Muladhara. When I do it by lifting the right arm and left leg, then energy climbs up through the pingala and goes to the right brain. Redirecting it does almost the same thing. I also keep a little awareness on the command chakra for this. From that the energy tries to come to the central line. Simultaneously, I also keep a slight mental eye on the muladhara contraction. Then I let the energy go wherever it wants to go, of its own accord. I see that she then goes there herself with great discretion, where energy is lacking. When that deficiency is filled, it goes to its opposite part, so that the energy balance is maintained. Then it comes in the middle channel. From there it starts covering both the sides of the body. These are all parts of the back and brain. It moves like the sound of water gushing through a pipe. That is why the name Nadi is also derived from the river or nadi in Sanskrit itself. Parts of the front part of the body are also covered, if I put a little attention on the tongue touching the palate. Then it descends through the forward nadi or channel and starts revolving in the channel loop.
By holding the breath, Kundalini energy rises in the back
Yogasanas are made so that the energy flowing through the nerves can be experienced, and the whole body can remain healthy by being irrigated by that flowing energy. The energy of a karma yogi continues to flow while doing work, though not as much as that flows through yoga. This was desperately needed by the dhyana yogi, because he had to sit for most of the time to meditate. By the way, it is clear that if people who are physically active also do yoga, then they will also benefit greatly. I noted something new this week. By holding the breath, the Kundalini energy was rising well above the back, and it was causing gushing in the brain. The same thing was being told in the above meeting also that while breathing, the cerebrospinal fluid rises in the spinal cord. Many scientific types of people say that the Kundalini energy goes through this. But there is doubt, because the kundalani energy rises all of a sudden, but the CSF moves slowly. Maybe when it reaches the brain, it is only then that there is a feeling of ascending energy. That is why only after doing breathing or other yoga exercises for some time does the energy feel like rising, not all of a sudden. That is why it is said to do yoga by holding the breath. However, probably for this, a long practice of doing yoga while breathing is required first. In fact, due to the formation of a pit in the rear Manipura chakra, the direction of the flow of energy is upwards in the back. Then with a little attention that energy picks up speed. Due to inhalation and exhalation, the energy keeps changing its direction continuously, due to which the energy does not get enough velocity. On inhaling it rises upwards, while exhaling it descends downwards.
biking kundalini yoga
I went to my work on a bicycle one day this week. I felt that the front pointed part of the seat of the bicycle acts as the heel of the foot in Siddhasana. When I used to slip forward, then my Kundalini energy started moving in a loop. That’s why even on a motorcycle, it is asked to sit at the very front, next to the fuel tank. This makes riding a motorcycle enjoyable due to the sharp pressure on the base. In fact, the prana was already active due to scenic beauty all around and with that the rush of pleasant thoughts in the brain. The helmet on my head made it even more active. Apana also became active due to the pressure exerted by the seat on the mooladhara. The mind or prana was already meditated upon. Meditation on apana was also there from the sensation on the base. When Apana started climbing up from the back, then Prana started coming down from the front. After completing the Kundalini cycle, the union of prana and apana also took place. This resulted in confluence and I got Kundalini benefits. I have written an earlier post on Biking Kundalini Yoga. The Muladhara Chakra works very well with the bicycle, especially the sports and light bikes. After biking, there is a shadow of joy and lightness for many days, it is due to this reason. Keep in mind that on the day of cycling, do not eat more, nor eat less. The same is said for yoga. In fact, due to over-filling of the stomach, even the breathing does not move properly, and the Kundalini energy does not move properly either. Eating less can lead to weakness. The burden should not be felt on the stomach. I have even seen that after eating in a balanced quantity, even if you eat a bread or two or four spoons of rice more, even then there is a burden on the stomach. Therefore, once you feel satiety from food, you should get up. Benefits like biking yoga can always be availed if one has mastered the control of muladhara. If we only compress the muladhara upwards, then fatigue is felt more. If we compress the Muladhara region from front to back, then the Muladhara also gets involved in it along with swadhishthan, and fatigue is also felt less. The effect will be even greater. Even if there is a contraction of any part of the lower region, it works. But keep in mind, while doing any specific brain work like driving or operating machinery, the focus should be on the brain. This will do so that the extra energy of the brain will go down, which will get rid of unnecessary thoughts and increase the efficiency. If all attention is let down, efficiency may decline. I see how scientifically the division of the indivisible prana has also been done. If the brain is more active, then by the union of prana and apana, kundalini with prana reaches the anahata chakra. That is why the field of prana is called up to the Anahata Chakra. If the area around the base chakras is more active, and the brain is a bit thoughtless, then by combining the two, the Kundalini is expressed at the navel chakra or the Swadhisthana chakra. That is why it is said that the area of Apana is from the bottom to the Manipura Chakra. Although the right of equal or samana prana has been told there, but there apana seems more dominant. Samana name has been given to prana there, because prana and apana seem to play about equal role there. Samana in Sanskrit means equal.
Muladhara Pump is the main tool of Kundalini Yoga
I also noted that with just the Muladhara pump one can easily move the Kundalini on the front and back chakras. First the Kundalini descends from the brain to the heart chakra. It remains stable there for a long time with the base pump running as per the need. Then from there it descends down to the Manipur Chakra. There too, staying still for a long time, she descends to the Swadhishthana Chakra. I felt she climb straight up through the back from there creating gushing in the brain. By the way, it is said that Kundalini turns back from the Muladhara chakra. Anyway, it remains active continuously with the Muladhara pump. By paying light attention to the Agya chakra, that gushing becomes even greater, and also comes in the central line. I think that gushing is the sound of blood running in the blood vessels. Blood vessels are also like a channel or nadi or a river. There are other thoughts also in the brain, although their power has already been applied to the Kundalini through the Muladhara Pump. Therefore they are weak. Then when the muladhara pump is applied again, that kundalini again reaches the muladhara chakra, and then climbs up through the back. Feels quite refreshing. In this way this sequence goes on for a long time. Now I’ll see what happens next. Yes, then for a while Kundalini remained active in the brain, meaning it has come to the Sahasrara Chakra. When the Sahasrara Chakra got tired, she descended from the front to the Ajna Chakra. Kundalini remained on one chakra for about 5-10 minutes. When the chakra was getting tired by constantly contracting, then Kundalini was moving on to the next chakra. I lay comfortably in a semi-dormant position on a revolving and back-extending chair. I was moving as per the need. When I was doing some other work, or getting up and walking, then Kundalini was staying on one chakra for a long time. This is because the chakra was not getting tired due to the lack of continuous contraction on the chakra. After 5 minutes the Ajna chakra loosened up, and the Kundalini descended to the Vishuddhi chakra. This time along with the front chakra, the back chakra was also acting simultaneously, it seemed that by joining a line, both the chakras had become one. The Kundalini on the chakra also seemed more pronounced. The movement of Kundalini from one chakra to another was being felt more clearly. Perhaps this happened because all the chakras were refreshed and unblocked by the first round of Kundalini. This time the Kundalini was more evident on the Vishuddhi Chakra by touching the opposite face of tongue to the palate. After about 5 minutes she descended to the Anahata Chakra. There it was shining brightly for a long time even without the Mooladhara pump. The chakra does not look to me as if there is a delimited wheel. I only know about the general chakra area and its approximate centre. Like Anahata Chakra, the area of the heart. Yes, the narrowing of that area definitely looks like a point in the center of that area, where the contraction and spasm seems to be the most and pinpointed. Perhaps this point is called the chakra. However, it is made apparent with strong and prolonged dhyana only. Kundalini shines brightly on it. Generally, Kundalini meditation is done by most of the people only in the chakra area and not on the pinpointed chakra. Just as the entire weight of one part of the chariot rests on the wheel of that part, so the strength of an entire chakra area of the body rests in the chakra of that area. By making it healthy, the whole chakra area along with its organs becomes healthy. After about 5 or 7 minutes when the anahata chakra gets tired, my stomach contracts inside and a slight gasp comes out. Simultaneously, Kundalini reaches Manipura or the navel chakra. Been there about 10 minutes. Due to its exhaustion, Kundalini power descends somewhere down. After finding it carefully, it settled on the Swadhisthana Chakra. Then she started climbing to Sahasrar through the back and descended through the front and started reaching there again. The role of the muladhar pump became more important here. With gushing she kept swinging between Sahasrara and Swadhisthana Chakra for about 5 minutes. Then she rested on the Muladhara Chakra. Then she again settled in Sahasrara. Apart from Kundalini, other light thoughts remain in the mind. But Kundalini remains more effective, and Kundalini continues to receive their power. On other chakras only Kundalini remains. After staying in Sahasrar for about 5 minutes, she started descending again. She descended in the same sequence first to the Ajna Chakra, then to the Vishuddhi Chakra. I had to get up again for some important work. This went on for about an hour and a half. I also noted one thing that while kundalini was in base chakras on its second and third round, a faint genital sensation arose with feeling of scanty fluid oozing. Once I noted that a picture of an attached man appeared from the memory lane of the mind. He was not even getting down with the Muladhara pump. I had to apply pumps several times. Had to spend more energy than average. While coming down from mind, he delivered his energy to Kundalini and she started shining. That is why it is said that before the practice of Kundalini yoga, there should be a practice of non-attachment and non-duality in daily life for a long time. With this, the defects of the mind themselves end. This also makes yoga very easy and enjoyable. The same thing I was saying in the previous post that first of all I recommend to those who want to take yoga training, read the book of Physiology Philosophy or sharirvigyan darshan and mold it in life for a few years. When the truth comes to be known from that, then the man himself engages in Kundalini yoga with his interest. He doesn’t do it out of compulsion or fear. This makes him learn quickly and completely. Therefore, the most important factor in the success of the work is the attitude. 90% of yoga is done by this positive attitude. The remaining 10% is fulfilled by Kundalini Yoga. The same thing happened with me, that’s why I am telling. In fact, the humanistic lifestyle and attitude also does not have to change. Lifestyle and attitude have to be adopted according to the contemporary circumstances. All that has to be done is to put on the extra cloak of the Advaita or nondual outlook on your present condition. Nothing to change. You are so good as you are.
Kundalini saves from the terrible condition of Bardo
Today, a verse from the Gita sent by a friend as mentioned earlier touched my heart. I am presenting it here.
Prayankale ManasachlenBhaktya Yukto Yogabalen Chaiva.Pranamavesya right in the middle of the forehead tam param purushmupati divyam 8- 10॥That devout person, even in the last, by establishing his prana well in the middle of the forehead with the power of yoga, then remembering it with a still mind, attains that divine form to the Supreme Personality of Godhead.10. This is what I think it means, which I have described above. With attention to the thoughts of the mind, let the attention go to the agya chakra located between the eyebrows. Due to this, the prana starts moving in the central channel loop, and Kundalini takes the place of unnecessary thoughts in the brain. In central channel, Kundalini always lives with the prana. Because central channel is nondual channel, and kundalini always accompany nonduality. It is Kundalini that takes you to the Supreme Soul. I think everyone can reach God, but most people get scared of the darkness after death and soon take on a new body. However, they get good or bad bodies according to their deeds. Perhaps their will does not work in the choice of the body. But the Kundalini yogi gets support from the light of Kundalini. So he can wait for a long time to meet God. Buddhists also believe almost the same. They call the horror after death the bardo.
Kundalini also transforms DNA
I think Kundalini also transforms a man’s DNA. This happens more with Kundalini awakening. If the thoughts of the mind are brought down, they are transformed into Kundalini on all the lower chakras. Anyway, every cell of the body has a brain. Scientific experiments also point towards these things.
