Kundalini meditation-penance is called as Shiva or Ishta meditation-penance grossly

Kundalini shy away from meeting her beloved Shiva like a woman filled with shame, and being unmarried for innumerable ages and births, wanders like crazy in her chaotic pursuit

Friends, in the previous post, I was referring to Shiva Purana to tell that Parvati was shying back while meeting Shiva, but was also smiling with joy. Actually the same happens with Kundalini or the living entity. As Kundalini begins to unite with Shiva, she withdraws in panic and shyness. Although she enjoys it too much, and later she regrets why she backed out. This is the momentary awakening of Kundalini possibly that happened to me, by the grace of Shiva and by the grace of Guru. Now I don’t even remember that experience. So it seems to me that something had happened and I was completely open at that time. It is quite possible that this type of Kundalini story has been written in the form of this Shiva story or Shiva Katha. Even if it is not written, it does not matter, because as happens in the gross world, so happens in the subtle world also. No difference. “Yatpinde Tatbrahmande” in Sanskrit. When Shiva consumed Kamadeva, he himself disappeared. This made Parvati extremely distraught with separation. All the time she was lost in the remembrance of Shiva. She could not find any joy anywhere. Her life had become dull. Seeing her condition, Parvatraj or Mountain king Himachal also became sad. He lovingly consoled his daughter Parvati by placing her on his lap. One day Narada Muni came to meet Parvati and explained to Parvati that she had not destroyed her ego, that is why Shiva disappeared. Then told her that Shiva wants to destroy her ego for her good, that is why he had turned away from her. Narada asked Parvati to do penance to end her ego. When Parvati asked for a mantra from Narada for penance, Narada gave her the Shiva Panchakshara mantra. It is “Om Namah Shivaya” a famous mantra.

Revelation of the above allegorical or metaphoric story

This phenomenon is visible in many love affairs. Once there is a mental sexual relationship, then there is an immense attraction towards each other. The man constantly tests his girlfriend. He wants to see her crazy in his love. He wants to see her completely loyal and devoted to him. Many restrained men even want the woman to propose him herself and even bring her doli (bride’s chariot) of her marriage to his house on her own. This is not a joke, it is a psychological reality. It is inspired by Kundalini. If this is not the case, they do not even refrain from abandoning the woman. A highly spiritual man like Shiva, even after coming very close to the woman, restrains himself and saves himself from wrongdoing. They do not even talk to the woman and take their own separate path in life. It is like the disappearance of Shiva. Due to this, the woman suffers like a fish without water in the memory of the lover. The same happened with Parvati too. The man also settles her memory in his mind and gets engaged in his work. It is just like Shiva going into a meditative state. Most of the men already appear devoid of ego like Shiva. In most of the cases, only the woman has the ego of form, quality and property. I’m not showing gender discrimination here. I’m only showing the natural truth. Exceptions are everywhere, somewhere more, somewhere less. For this reason the man goes away from her, because where is the union of fire and water. Later on, when the ego of a woman is destroyed by the blows of worldliness, then she meets that loving man again by chance. However, most of the women have settled their own separate household. Unlike Parvati waiting for Shiva, it is rare that she keeps on waiting for her lover throughout her life. Still, a woman receives emotional benefits from her true lover man as a sister, friend, etc., or through any humane relationship. The mixed mental power of both of lovers is automatically passed on to their children, either they marry or not. This is the cosmic union of Shiva-Parvati, and the birth of Lord Kartikeya in the form of psychic power.

Sahasrar is the place where the Ganges descends in the Himalayas

Parvati meditates at the same place where she had a courtship with Shiva. That place is the Sahasrara Chakra itself. That’s the place of Kundalini awakening. The verse “Ganga of love” is so popular. In fact, the energy that ascends through the sushumna in the back with love is the Ganges of love. Kundalini mounted on the Sahasrara Chakra, and began to experience the bliss of Advaita. It has been written in such a way that Parvati started doing penance in Sahasrar. Tapas means meditation of Kundalini in Sahasrar. This is also the meditation of Shiva, because in Sahasrar Shiva definitely comes to meet Kundalini later or sooner, which means Kundalini awakening definitely takes later or sooner. Tapas done for kundalini meditation is grossly called as tapas done for meditation of Shiva, because ultimately Kundalini is leading to Shiva only. This again proves the theme of this blog that Kundalini meditation is everything or one and all. penance is done only for meditation. Therefore, tapas can also be called dhyana yoga or kundalini yoga. If tapas or austerity does not lead to meditation, then it is not austerity, it is just a show. Her father Himachal and mother Maneka reach there with their sons and famous mountains to persuade their daughter and stop her from penance. They are saddened by her suffering. They tell her that the recluse Shiva, who consumed Kamadeva, will not come to meet her. Anyway, God doesn’t care about anyone. He is complete in himself. He enjoys himself. It is not an easy task to control such a supreme master. But stubborn devotees like Parvati convince him. Parvati was fully aware of the power of devotion, so she does not believe and keeps on doing penance. Actually the brain is the king Himachal. Such chemicals come out of it, which distract away from penance. This is what Himachal explains to Parvati the wrathful aftermaths of doing penance. It wants to keep the soul entangled in the external world by diverting the attention from the Kundalini or say Shiva. Various mountain peaks are walnut-like bulges of the brain, which control different parts of the body. All these submountains are inside Himachal. The mind or brain remains in fear of losing its power. With the heat of the fire of her penance, the whole universe starts burning. Disturbed by this, all the gods and mountains, taking Brahma along with them, go to her to persuade her and stop her from penance. Actually this body is the whole universe. There is a sumeru mountain in it. It is the abode of all the gods. This body will definitely be badly afflicted by the austerity. It’s natural for brain to stop this all. Brahma lives on Mount Sumeru. Mount Sumeru is called the brain itself. Just as the universe develops from Brahma, so does the body develop from the brain out of its thinking power. Although all the deities reside in the brain, but the most arrogant and powerful deity of the mind is called Brahma that’s called primarily living there. All the demigods pervade the whole body along with the brain, but Brahma resides only in the brain. That is why the abode of Brahma is said to be in Sumeru. Therefore, due to austerity, these physical deities and innumerable living cell-shaped creatures living in this body-like universe are disturbed by being hungry and thirsty. In fact, along with the Kundalini, the prana of the body also goes to Sahasrara. Due to this the body becomes powerless like crippled or like helpless or like dependent. It is natural that the body will then become physically backward. It’s all inside this body-universe or subtle universe. Nothing happens in the outer gross universe. If the external gross creatures and gods had suffered, no one would have survived till today, because lakhs of people do penance every day in the form of meditation. Many yogis do severe penance even in the forests and mountains.

Kundalini requires various gods that are in the form of molds of different personalities

Friends, I sometimes like a particular deity more, sometimes someone else. Long ago, I loved Goddess mother the most. Now I like Lord Shiva the most. Once when I went to visit Mumbai, I liked Lord Ganesha best. In Maharashtra, Ganesha is quite famous. It is clear that the God who exposes the Kundalini the most, that is the best as a deity. This means that the real joy lies in the Kundalini itself. The gods are helpful in exposing the Kundalini.

The form of a particular deity is a mold of the form of a particular personality

In fact, various deities exist as signs of different personalities. Lord Shiva is a tantric, cool, nondual, naive, self-possessed, nature-lover, quick-tempered and quickly happy, detached and high-spirited self-proudful personality. If anyone likes such a personality and a man with such personality, then he can get benefit from Shiva worship. By meditating on Shiva, the image of a person with such personality appears in his mind temple, and then gradually takes the form of Kundalini. In life, no one can be physically consistent with anyone. But one can always remain mentally consistent. To maintain the mental picture of a lover, a god like him is chosen. The deity is worshiped in the form of an idol, picture, statue, etc. This keeps the mental picture of the lover strong. Many times the reverse also happens. The person by whom a deity is worshiped begins to fall in love with the man with that personality of deity. This then leads to the development of Kundalini. In the old age, Yogis also used to make the idol of the empty deity as Kundalini without any loving person. But nowadays it seems impossible. Because the present-day society is individual oriented rather than Devata or idol oriented. Similarly, one may find the personality of Lord Ganesha interesting, while one that of mother Kali. Gods exist according to everyone’s interest. As far as my own experience is concerned, I had a personality like Shiva as my Kundalini. Once upon a time due to some divine event, my inclination towards Lord Shiva became apparent. I felt completely devoted to him, losing myself from all other sides. This inspired me to unknowingly have Tantra Yoga with various favorable circumstances, which quickly awakened my Kundalini.

Gods always exist as a feeling or sentiment

For example, if a particular tantric born in some country or era or say Bhairavnath was considered the god of the tantra, then most people today would not have reverence for him. This would have been because Bhairavnath was a real man, who was born in very old times, and is not today. The life-circumstances of his time were completely different from those of today’s life. In this way, the tantric sentiment that was popping up in the minds of people would have perished by worshipping Baba Bhairav. But in contrast, Lord Shiva is eternal. He is the same today, as he was thousands of years ago. He will always remain the same. In fact, he is not a mortal person, but as a personality or sentiment. There have been countless people who cover his personality. Therefore, trust and interst always prevail over him. It keeps trust on Tantra and interest in it.

Gods always give strength to Kundalini

If a deity is interesting or not, he always gives Kundalini benefits. The deity is really like a mixture of living (Yang) and non-living (Yin). He has the quality of a living as doing all the activities like a human being. The qualities of the inanimate are in them in the form of inanimate objects such as air, water, fire, sun etc. A mixture of living and non-living in a deity is possible only if the deity is living and unattached. All the activities of the deity calm down in his mind through Advaita or non duality and Anasakti or detachment. However they are carried out from outside by the deity. If the deity were fully alive, he would be visible like a living human, and would be immersed in the bondage of the world. If the deity had been completely lifeless, it would have been dead, which could never run the world at all. Moreover, his worship would have been a loss rather than a gain. It is because of this Advaita form of the deity that Advaita prevails in the mind of man, due to which the Kundalini is exposed. That is why it has been written in the Vedas and scriptures that worshiping the deity brings salvation along with the comforts of the world.

Kundalini is the most secular thing

Friends, many people associate Kundalini with the name of religion mainly with the Hinduism. Earlier I used to understand almost the same. The reason for this is lack of deep understanding about Kundalini. This blog seems to fill this gap. Today we will try to prove the top secularism of Kundalini in this post.

Each religion or denomination has its own different worship

For example, there are many gods and goddesses in different sects of Hinduism. The Shaiva sect recommends worshiping Lord Shiva. The Vaishnava sect has asked to worship the incarnations of Lord Vishnu. Devotees of Shakta sect worship Goddess Mother. Brahmist Hindus worship the formless OM. Similarly, in Sikhism, the attention of the gurus and the implementation of their teachings is important. Jainism describes Lord Mahavira and his teachings. Buddhists consider Lord Buddha to be their greatest God. Islam is said to be devoted to Allah. Christianity emphasizes devotion to the Lord Jesus.

There is no adorable in Kundalini Yoga

This does not mean that Kundalini yogis do not care for anyone. This means that in Kundalini Yoga there is the freedom to choose adorable as per one’s choice. In fact, the thing supporting meditation is called Kundalini, as Patanjali has said in his yogasutras.  “Yatabhimatadhyanatva” In this sutra Patanjali has said that the mind can be stabilized and made yogic by meditation of any desired object. It is a different matter that by mixing sensational energy with help of the techniques of Tantric Hatha Yoga, it is further strengthened. Kundalini can be in the form of any object or sentiment. It can be as a lover, and also as an enemy. Krishna had Kundalini as Goddess Radha, and Goddess Radha had Kundalini as her lover Krishna. Shishupala considered Krishna his greatest enemy, so his attention was always on Krishna. In this way, Kundalini of Shishupala was also in the form of Lord Krishna. Kundalini can be as a guru, and also as a disciple. It can be in the form of light, and also in the form of darkness. It can be as elder, and also as younger. It can also be in the form of tantra, and also in the form of mantra. It can be in the form of a god, and also in the form of a ghost. It can also be in the form of a deity, and as a demon. It can also occur in the form of inanimate matter, and also as a living being. It can be in human form, and also in animal form. Moreover, it can also be in formless form like OM, Allah etc. It simply means that the thing which a man has the most inclination towards, he can make that object his kundalini. Then he can also wake it up by doing his regular meditation through yoga. It is a different matter that most people meditate on good and beautiful personalities such as Guru, Deity, etc., as what a man meditates, he becomes like that.

Kundalini is even more secular than materialistic science

Science also advocates following only the principles proven by practical experiments. It does not consider anything other than those. Kundalini is beyond the limits of these constraints. Kundalini can also be given the form of a true object or sentiment, and also of an apparent object. Science does not believe in gods, but many sages have awakened them as Kundalini. I had also said in previous posts that the shape of the Karol mountain was not exactly the same as the Shivalinga, but it appeared to be a huge Shivalinga from my residence. Many Shiva devotees used to focus on the same spiritual shape.The above facts lead to the conclusion that Kundalini is the most sensitive, sentimental,  sympathetic, independent, loving, humanist,democratic, scientific, and secular; Even more than materialistic science. Kundalini science is knowing this thing very well that the personal interest of everyone should be respected.

Kundalini with conical or dome-shaped mountain as a type of Shivalingam: Last Blog Post of the Year 2020

May the new year be filled with brightness and hope so that darkness and sadness stay away from you. Happy New Year 2021!

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.

Kundalini is that tuning frequency of the mind, which captures even the slightest temporal and otherworldly movements

May Kundalini grow with Christmas. Happy Christmas to all.

Friends, in the previous post I explained how tuning with planets can reduce their side effects. In this post we will discuss what that tuning is, and how it is related to Kundalini theory.

Kundalini is the frequency of the mind that we can tune with the planets

We note the tuning of the radio, and we operate the radio at the same frequency. Playing at other frequencies will not play radio. In the same way, we know our Kundalini well, and we never forget it. It is the most important picture of the mind. Yogis also remember it daily with yogasadhana. If the light coming from the planets is reduced due to any horoscopic-combination, then the brightness of the Kundalini of our mind starts to increase to balance it. On realizing this, we also increase Kundalini Yogasadhana. We do not get much benefit from increasing the brightness of other images of the mind, because we had not connected them with the planets and their light through religious rituals like planetary worship. Religious activities empower Kundalini only to make it as tuning frequency of mind. In other words, their tuning was not done with planets. Other activities empower plethora of thoughts and images in mind. This can not raise the energy of any of the thought up to tuning level. Tuning thought is as better as full of energy because every stuff inside or outside, here or there is full of energy. We can also call it auto search function. Kundalini, pre-tuned with the planets, activates itself. Kundalini becomes active when there is any change in the planets. She acts as a buffer to provide protection against the shocks of light change.

Kundalini meditation over the planets makes it tuning frequency

This is done by worshiping the planets, offering arghya (holy water) to the Sun, daily reading almanacs or panchanga (maths of planetary movements) carefully, and other various religious rituals. That is why it comes in the scriptures that there is never any misfortune on a person who reads the almanac carefully. When the planets are illuminated for a man, his Kundalini begins to glow by accepting that light. When those planets become dark for that man, then the same Kundalini continues to provide light to that man. In this way, the Kundalini acts like a battery or a phosphorescent material , which keeps charging and discharging, and prevents darkness. Kundalini is also charged with daily Kundalini yoga.

Planetary remedial measures recharge Kundalini

For planetary peace, religious rituals are performed like Navagraha Poojan, charity, chanting, meditation, fasting, sacrifice etc. All these measures illuminate the mind. The most illuminated stuff is Kundalini because it is the most important picture in the mind. The light emanating from that Kundalini makes up the lack of planetary light.

Every life situation is planetary

Every event happens in the light of the sun. Because all celestial bodies are connected to each other, so all other planets also contribute to them. Therefore it is natural that Kundalini is beneficial in every situation of life. If a man is getting the support of the appropriate events to grow, then we can say that his planets are auspicious. Similarly, if a man is not getting events or getting inappropriate events to progress, then we can say that his planets are inauspicious.

The concluding explanation of this post is that in order to always get pleasant music from a radio set, it is always necessary to keep it on tuning frequency, in the same way it is important to always keep the Kundalini in mind in order to remain blissful.
