Kundalini is Goddess Sita and soul is Lord Rama
Sita is the Kundalini who enters from outside world in the form of a picture of the object through the light entering the eyes. In fact, the Kundalini energy of the body has gone out of the eye. It is also said in the scriptures that the whole personality of a man resides in his mind, which keeps wandering in the outside world by going out through the external senses. Everywhere outside is the kingdom of material defects or Doshas i.e. Ravana, a ten-headed demon. That kundalini power comes in his possession, and cannot escape from his clutches. The living soul i.e. Rama, who resides in the brain, looks helplessly at Sita Shakti wandering in that external world. This is what Jatayu’s brother Sampati ie. a big vulture has to see across the ocean with his sharp eyes and tell her well being to Rama. Then Rama engages in yoga, and associates a lot with the idol of the deity made in a temple, etc. or the guru living there, and pleases him with body, mind and wealth. By this, gradually the impression of the picture of his master deepens in his mind, and there comes a time when that mental picture becomes permanent. This is the start of samadhi or kundalini awakening. This is said as rescuing Sita from Ravana, the king of Lanka, and bring her to city of Ayodhya by crossing the bridge over the sea. The ray of light is that bridge, because through it the physical picture from outside entered the mind. The mind is Ayodhya, in which the soul of Rama resides. No one can fight with the mind, because it is beyond materialism. Very little is known about the mind of others. Everyone can fight with someone’s body, but not with the mind. Its second meaning is also that the mind should be put on the right path only after persuasion and not by coercion or scolding. Even through telepathy etc., it is just a guess. One can never know completely about another’s mind. First of all, the soul of Rama, wandering in the outside world that’s in Ravana’s Lanka, kept seeing his half part that’s Sita Mata from afar. Meaning he didn’t pay much attention to her. Even if he went out, he indulged himself half-heartedly. That is, he did not make enough efforts to bring back the kundalini power. Then, when Rama became very upset by her separation, then he jumped energetically out of his mind in to the outside world. This is what is depicted in the form of his battle with the demons. In fact, the real and lively life is like a war-level struggle and outward facing or extrovert life. It’s Karmyoga, the root and beginning of every meditation. Meaning that he came out of Ayodhya and entered Lanka through the bridge of eyesight. He started working hard in the world with his full heart and with full attention. Meaning that he started looking for Sita in Lanka. Then due to some satsang or good company, divine qualities started increasing in him. Meaning that the practice of Yama-Niyamas of Ashtanga Yoga of Patanjali started by him by itself. This satsang is in the form of friendship between Rama and the demon saint Vibhishana. Due to this, the soul Rama liked something very much, and he was constantly in contact with that one thing. Meaning that Rama’s eyes fell on his dearest Sita, and he began to be engrossed in her love. Meaning that in this metaphorical story, this principle of tantra has also been propounded that a woman that’s wife is the most helpful in yoga. The main purpose of the Puranas is spiritual and transcendental. The temporal purpose is secondary or inferior. But most people get the opposite. For example, they draw from this spiritual myth the same cosmic ethic that one should not cast an evil eye on a foreign woman like Ravana. Although this teaching is also correct, but they either do not understand or ignore the main and basic purpose of Kundalini Yoga hidden in it. Then the position or posture of the body of the soul Rama and the process of breathing itself began to adjust in such a way that maximum attention could be kept on the object of his favorite. Due to this, the development of Yogi Ram reached the asana and pranayama part of Ashtanga yoga. This means that Rama would sometimes stand for a long time to see Sita from afar and secretly, sometimes he would sit this or that way for a long time, sometimes he had to hold his breath for a long time, sometimes he had to breathe very slowly. This was so that the people entangled in the world, the demons of Lanka, would not come to know about this act of meditation or dhyana, so that they would not disturb his attention or meditation. What is actually a material object or a woman, that or she does not even know that someone is meditating on that or her. This is done very cleverly. If she finds out, she will shy away and will not be able to display her varied looks and emotions. Due to this meditation wouldn’t mature, Also, due to the creation of ego due to this, there will be further impairment in meditation. The same happens in the case of Guru as well. Similarly, what does a stone idol standing in the temple know that someone is meditating on it? Because Sita’s picture had occupied most of the space in Rama’s mind, so it had no desire to store unnecessary ambitions and unnecessary things. Due to this the fifth limb of Ashtanga Yoga, Aparigraha itself became manifest. Aparigraha means neither accumulation of unnecessary things nor wanting them. Then in this way, by prolonged practice of these initial five limbs of yoga, the image of that object or woman becomes fixed in the mind of the soul Rama. These are the dharana and dhyana or meditation, advanced limbs of ashtang yoga. You can call it as start of Samadhi or kundalini awakening. It means that Rama rescued Sita from Ravana of Lanka, and carried her through the same ray of light as bridge built on the ocean of atmosphere to the beach of eyes and then to Ayodhya in the form of mind or through Pushpak vimana that’s an classical aeroplane named Pushpak as written in Ramayana. Due to this the ten defects of his senses were destroyed. It is celebrated on the day of Dussehra festival as burning of effigy of Dashanan or ten-headed Ravana. The soul or Rama then practiced tantric yoga for twenty days to provide the final and emancipatory leap or escape velocity to kundalini for its awakening. During that time, he kept on taking picturesque and scenic journeys to reach home. Anyway, meditation along with remembrance of one’s permanent home gives more strength to Kundalini, because Kundalini is also associated with permanent house, as I mentioned in a previous article. Kundalini gets additional strength even from picturesque journeys, that’s why pilgrimage trips have been made. With that all-out effort, his Kundalini was awakened within a short span of twenty days. This is Ram’s reaching Ayodhya that’s the original place of Kundalini. This is the Kundalini awakening. The light of sattvikta that engulfs the mind after Kundalini awakening is depicted as the festival of lights, Deepawali. Because the effect of Kundalini awakening spreads the light of joy by spreading all around in the society, especially in the home, so this is the joint celebration of Happy Diwali festival by the people of Ayodhya.
