Kundalini yoga meditation is proved supreme through the description of the metaphor of the legend of Shiva-Ketaki flower in the Shiv Purana in the best way

Friends, let’s meditate Kundalini a little bit. The Shiva-Ketaki story I had told in the previous post is a classic example of metaphors written in the Puranas. The Puranas are full of such metaphors. The subject presented with the help of metaphors is well understood, and well remembered. Most spiritual knowledge is outside the limits of the mind, and is the object of direct experience. Therefore, it is brought into the realm of mind by metaphors.

Brahma ran upwards and Lord Vishnu ran downwards to search for the ends of the aforesaid light pillar

In the aforesaid story we showed Vishnu moving upwards and Brahma going downwards. But the reality was the opposite. Well it doesn’t matter much. We can adapt metaphors to either side. The experience of truth remains the same. Metaphors cannot change the truth. Metaphors have no mathematics of their own. Metaphors are only made to explain the truth. In this contrasting position of metaphor we can mold the experience of truth in the following way. People of Brahma type because they get indiscriminate construction work done, so they get different higher realms as a result of their deeds. They do not attain the ultimate world like Sahasrara chakra, because they are enamored of the world. Therefore, they are unable to do Kundalini Yogasadhana. If they do, it is not quick fruitful. The rest is all right in the metaphor aforesaid. Similarly, Vishnu types symbolize humility, deep exploration, and contemplation of knowledge. They engage in the service of the oppressed people living in the lower realms. In them also comes the ego of nourishing and protecting the world. Yet they do not boast about their false bravado, nor do they beat their influence too much. Therefore he is said to be going into the lower worlds or lower chakras. For this reason, his Kundalini Yoga practice also does not succeed easily. The rest is all right in the metaphor.The real Tantric Kundalini Yogis are just like Lord Shiva. They have no concern about worldliness. They are blissful and joyful with their Kundalini. They awaken their Kundalini by not wasting their energy enhanced by tantric practice in the world. They do not run into wanting to get more. They get satisfied in what they get. Lord Shiva also has nothing except a tiger skin, a tiger carpet, a trident, a snake, a bull and Parvati Mata. He remains immersed in deep and joyful meditation while remaining happy in those things what he has naturally.

The flower of Ketaki is a symbol of people who do not recognize God even when they are with him

It is mentioned in the story that the white flower of Ketaki fell from the forehead of Lord Shiva, but he also did not know the beginning and end of that piller flame. People with a clean image like Ketaki are also like priests, who do not know God even after constantly staying in temples. The general public believes in them, so people of Brahma type take this advantage illegally. They make them sing their praises on the basis of money, and show that they know everything, that is, God. The rest is the same in the metaphor.

Kundalini is the main theme of Hindu Puranas: the story of Shiva and Ketki flower

Friends, in the previous post I had told about a story of Shivpuran (a Hindu spiritual and metaphorical mythology), which is the basis of the mystery of Tantra Shastra. It is called the story of Ketki flower. In this post I will explain that story in depth.

What is story of Ketki flower

According to Shivpuran, once there was a quarrel between Lord Brahma and Lord Vishnu. Lord Brahma said that he has created the whole world, so he is the greatest. On the other hand, Lord Vishnu started saying that he is the one who maintains and protects the whole world, so he is the greatest. When their quarrel caused uproar, an astrological column appeared between them. There was a voice from sky that the one who will first find its ends, is the biggest. Lord Vishnu walked upwards, and Lord Brahma went downwards. But both could not find the end of it and returned empty handed. Vishnu narrated the true story of his failure to Brahma, but Brahma started lying to Lord Vishnu. Brahma said that he came back after touching its end. Brahma presented the white flower of Ketaki as a witness. Then Lord Shiva appeared there, angry with this lie. He said that he is the eldest and no one other than him has known its beginning and end. Angered by Ketki’s lies, Shiva cursed him that he would never be included in their worship. Together, Brahma was also cursed that he would not have a temple anywhere, nor would he be worshiped.

Tantric Mystery of Shiva-Ketaki Story

Brahma and Ketki flowers symbolize tantric subject

In fact the above narrative is metaphoric, and is pointing towards the excellency of Kundalini yoga over all. Brahma is the symbol of those who are damaging nature by indiscriminate construction work. Businessmen, politicians and fake religious leaders who use egoism are that type people. People who perform religious rituals like Rajoguni Yajna etc. are also included in this. Arrogance arises in them, and they start thinking of themselves as the greatest. They have no shortage of funds, so they buy people and journalists with respectable and clean image in the society. The white flower of Ketaki is a symbol of such people. They make such people sing their full glory, and ignore the real God and become God themselves. That is why insidious people with such clean and white image could not please Lord Shiva. To make them happy, one has to be naive like a child. That is why Shiva is also called Bholenath or Bhole Baba. Tantriks are also naive. The above people with Brahma-like image also do not get true respect from people. Out of fear of his influence, people give him false respect. Just as Lord Brahma searches for the lower end of the pillar, similarly that type people have more inclination towards the bottom, that is, Tamoguna. Tamogun may express as uncontrolled consumption of alcohol, meat, etc. They are Rajoguni just like Brahma. Rajoguna is more inclined towards Tamogun. They reach to the very lower realms or chakras, but they do not reach the lowest world, that is, the Muladhar Chakra. This simply means that they do not wake up Kundalini on the Muladhara Chakra. If the Kundalini is awakened even on the mooladhara chakra, it goes straight up to Sahasrara, penetrating all the chakras or realms, and awakens there too. But only tantric people can do this, not ordinary people.

Lord Narayana is the symbol of public servants and donators

Some people of the society are directly connected to the service of the public. Among them, servants and donators are the main ones. People who perform sattvic rituals etc. are also included in these. People doing many types of mental meditation practices are also like this. Although they are naive, they still cannot find the end of the astrological pillar. They move upwards on the pillar, because they are Sattvaguni. There are no defects of mind inside them. Ego is also less in them. They go to very high abodes or chakras, but do not reach the highest abode or sahasrara. This means that they too cannot awaken Kundalini. Then Shiva said that he only knows this. Together he said that he is the biggest. It simply means that only the tantric devotees of Shiva are able to awaken their Kundalini.

Jyotirmaya or luminous Pillar is symbol of Sushumna channel and different abodes of different chakras

In fact, the whole world is inhabited inside our own human body, according to “Yatpinde Tatbrahmande”. The same has been proved scientifically in the book in Hindi “shareervigyan darshan – ek adhunik Kundalini Tantra (ek yogi ki premkatha)”. The various upper and lower abodes which are said in the story are the chakras located in the backbone of our body. The light pillar is the spinal cord. It is also in the form of a shining sensation. It passes from Muladhara Chakra i.e. the lowest abode to Sahasrar Chakra i.e. the highest lok or abode. Many types of abodes i.e. Chakra come in between. Its short form is Linga or lingam or Vajra. That is the most important part of that pillar, because the light emanating column is produced there.

Kundalini carrier in the form of thousand hooded divine serpent

Friends, I do not get a chance to write my short experiences waiting to write long posts.  That is why I have thought that I will write only small thoughts about Kundalini.  This will keep a constant connection with Kundalini, which is very important for spiritual progress.  Anyway, in busy life it is not possible to write long posts together.

Kundalini also comes down by lowering the pressure of the brain

Kundalini appears in the brain as soon as one’s own present condition is considered as nondual like that of the Dehpurusha/body-man.  This creates a bit of pressure in the brain.  To bring down that pressure, the tongue is pressed with the palate, and the mouth is kept closed while not speaking.  Simultaneously, the thinking of descending Kundalini energy is done.  It is also thought that the pressure of the brain is descending through the front channel.  With this, the mind becomes light, and along with pressure the Kundalini also comes down and sits on a suitable chakra.  She then glows progressively due to the constant pressure coming from the brain.  The same pressure is also called Prana.  When the mind becomes empty or light, the Kundalini energy from the Muladhara Chakra ascends through the back channel to the brain.  The same thing happens with the mental trauma or emotional shock as stated in earlier posts.  Due to mental trauma, the mind becomes completely empty, and the Kundalini Shakti ascends in the back at full speed, that is, the sushumna channel, the most important Kundalini channel in the spinal cord opens.  The same thing happens many times with tantric alcohol use.  Even with that, the mind becomes empty.  In this way, the Kundalini loop is completed, and the Kundalini cycle starts.  It is also called microcosmic orbit.  It also calms the impulse of sexual lust, because its energy is absorbed by Kundalini.  This is also completely the case in a woman. As mentioned in the old post, their vajra is of comparatively small dimension, which is contained little bit inside body lotus. This is a major technique of Tantra.

Sheshnag’s middle hood is the longest

Even in the old post, I had told that when the Sheshnag is laid from the vajra to the brain through the spine, the sensation of vajra easily reaches Sahasrara.  Its main symptom is the shrinking of the vajra.  It gives a feeling of sensation in the center of the back.  The whole serpent is to be meditated together.  In fact, sensation has the property of movement and displacement. Sheshnag has  thousand hoods, which cover the entire brain.  Its central hood is shown to be thickest and longest. This central one is the most working type hood. That’s why kundalini runs in this hood. Actually, this has been done for the centering of sensation / Kundalini.  This makes the Kundalini run entirely in the central line.  Serpent also bends down his central hood and kisses the agya chakra located between the eyebrows.  With this, Kundalini reaches the agya chakra and creates joy with pressure there.  Many times, the Kundalini reaches the agya chakra directly.  Anyway, Vajra Nadi, one of the main nadis of Hatha Yoga, is described as going up to the agya chakra. The Kundalini descends best through the tongue from the agya chakra. One by moving his head and back here and there, the Sheshnag should also appear to be moving here and there.  This provides even more Kundalini-benefits.

Sheshnag is depicted in the Kshira Ocean / milky ocean, and its one thousand hoods are spread over the head of Lord Vishnu

The same has been shown in the post image above. In fact, our body is also a subtle ocean. This body has more than 70% water, which is spread all around. That water is as nutritious as kheer (a milk-rice-sugar dish) milk. The above Sheshnag is sitting in the midst of the milky water of the same body with its hoods erected up. The head of a man is in the form of his thousand heads. Sahasra means thousand in Sanskrit.

Why Centering is Important for Kundalini

Friends, every thing has its energy at its center. It is also called Center of Mass or Center of Gravity. Similarly, the energy of the body is highest on its central line. That is why the Kundalini is rotated on that line, so that it can get maximum power. I found it difficult to meditate on Kundalini in full sun. But when I meditated on the superficial central line of the Sun, it became easy and strong. All these things show that Kundalini’s psychology also proves to be just like physical science.

Kundalini producing creative resolutions has been told as origination of Brahma (Brahmadeva) from the navel-lotus of Lord Narayana (Vishnu)

It is to certify that we don’t endorse or oppose any religion. We only promote scientific and humane study of religion.

Friends, this week I was feeling some writer’s block. Then I realized my human responsibility as soon as the week was going to over. We all should promote good, truthful and scientific things. This is the duty of all of us. Hinduism is not a religion. It is a pure science. It is humanistic science. This is Kundalini science. This is spiritual psychology. Because the body and the world are subject to the mind, this proves that Hinduism is also a physical science. Many of its things have stood the test of science. For hundreds of years, various fundamentalist theists and unrighteous beings have been trying to destroy it. Today, they have united with all strength to uproot it. The rapidly growing dream of becoming an Islamic nation is a living example of this. Similarly, forced conversion by various religions (including Christianity) is another example. In India, both these types of anti-Hindu ideological campaigns (agendas) have grown rapidly in recent years. Recently, Sharjil Imam (IIT graduate and PhD scholar at JNU) confessed these things to the police without any regrets after his inflammatory speech. If we do not present Hinduism with science in due course of time, our future generations may be deprived of it.

Everything of Hinduism is based on Kundalini. All Hinduism revolves around Kundalini. Kundalini is in its axis.  Hinduism is dedicated completely to the attainment of Kundalini. A similar scientific fact is the scientific interrelation between Kundalini and Brahma-Vishnu. We will describe it in this post.

Lord Vishnu / Narayana is in the form of Kundalini

As I have also described earlier, as Lord Vishnu sleeps on Sheshnag/giant thousand hooded serpent, similarly Kundalini also resides in the nervous system (having Sheshnag-like shape). Narayan is  Kundalini, and  Kundalini is Narayan. Both are same. Now whether kundalini is made of pig, fish, turtle, deity, lover, guru etc. Anyway, Narayan has incarnated in many such forms.

Creative thoughts and resolutions are in the form of Lord Brahma / Brahmadev.

It is clearly written in the Vedas that the mind of the universe is called Brahma. The creative macro-mind / cosmic mind that created this universe is Brahma.

Kundalini produces creative thoughts and resolutions.

Ideas that appear in action are called sankalpa/resolutions. Powerful thoughts are called resolutions. A single and executive thought can become a resolution only when there is no other noise in the mind. That means when the mind is calm. Then the power of the mind is applied to that single thought, from which it becomes confirmed and becomes sankalpa, and produces creative work. Peace of mind comes from Kundalini only. It has also been seen that Kundalini is behind the success of many people. Achieving success by taking inspiration from a guru, lover etc. means that the image of Guru etc. remained in the mind of man continuously. That permanent mental image is the Kundalini. This means that the success through inspiration also comes through Kundalini. I have experienced this myself. It has also been proven scientifically that yoga (Kundalini) enhances creativity.

Thoughts and resolutions are born in the navel of Kundalini

The navel is called the center. Various new and old ideas are revealed with the attention/meditation on Kundalini. The idle thoughts of them become quiet. From this, beneficial thoughts become powerful and become resolutions. Similarly, Lord Brahma (sankalpa-rupa/resolution-form) is said to have arisen from the navel of Lord Narayana. When I was busy with creative work, I used to get a lot of support from my Kundalini. Thus it is proved that the Puranas/ancient spiritual mythology have explained the origin of Brahma from the navel of Lord Vishnu to explain the creation of humane resolutions from Kundalini. This happens in both cases as true, because everything that is happening in our body is happening in the same way in the universe.

Kundalini as a Serpent

Friends, a few weeks ago, I along with my family got an opportunity to visit an ancient serpent-temple. That was quite famous, and a fair is held there throughout the month of Shravan/rainy month. I do not remember the idols etc. in its sanctum sanctorum, but there was a huge and colorful wall painting of the serpent touching the heart. He was like Sheshnag/multi hooded serpent, on which Lord Narayan sleeps. He had many hoods. I could find that as my familiar figure. There, my Kundalini also started glowing sharply, which made me enjoyed. He seemed to me some mysterious puzzle, which my mind tried to solve spontaneously.

Serpent is a symbol of darkness

My first analysis was that Narayana (God) is seen by the common man as a form of darkness. He does not see his light due to illusion of Maya. That is why Shesh Nag, a symbol of darkness, is shown with him. Nevertheless, I was not satisfied with this analysis.

Nag as a symbol of Kundalini

I was reading a post of yogaindia.com. Something was written in it, which I understood that the serpent is located on the muladhara chakra by placing three and a half spirals/rings. He is holding his tail with his mouth. When the Kundalini Shakti is passed through those rings, then he rises straight up and reaches the brain through the spinal cord. He is also accompanied by Kundalini Shakti.

I concluded from this that our nervous system looks like a raised serpent and acts like that. Scientifically, the sensations in the nerve travel in waves like a serpent. Vajra is the tail of that serpent. It can also be called half ring. The area of ​​the testicles is the first ring / coil. The second circle outside it is of flesh and fibers. The third ring is the bone, which is attached to the spinal cord. Just as a raised serpent has a bend in the inner direction at the lower back, similarly it is there in the lower part of our back (exactly opposite of the navel). After that both emerge outward, and then both have a bend of head, which is almost identical. Many heads of the serpent are shown because our head is several times wider and thicker than the spine, comparatively.

Our nervous system is like a serpent

We can also see the nerve inside the spinal cord like a serpent. Similarity will be found in both. The nadis/nerve fibers are also like serpent or rope. Consider the nerve of Vajra as the tail of a serpent. The same is also as a half ring as shown above. The Samvedana Kshetra/sensitive area of the Swadhisthana Chakra (where Kundalini is meditated) is the first ring / Kundal / circle of the Serpent. The nerves of the surrounding area also join there, that is the first whorl of the serpent. The second enclosure may be called that, where that nerve connects to the sacral plexus / network of nerves. The third circle can be called as where the sacral plexus joins the spinal cord. There the serpent / spinal cord stands up and also become thicker. In the lumbar region of the back, there is a bend with the pit towards the stomach. The next turn comes in upper area, close to the head. The neuronal network inside the head is there as many hoods of that serpent, which are attached to the spinal cord / serpent-body.

Kundalini Chakras of our body as main body points of god Serpent’s body

There is no need to go so deep as above. It is a simple matter that the entire sacral/sexual area is thick, circular and layered like a standing serpent’s ringed base. All its sensations go upwards through afferent nerves along with the sensation in Vajra / serpent-tail. The main bulging points of the serpent are the seven chakras of the body. Kundalini glows more at these points during meditation. The tip of the vajra is attached to the Muladhara Chakra. The snake’s tail (vajra) on the Swadhisthana Chakra (base of the vajra) is attached to that main body of the snake in the annular form, which is on the ground. The rising up of the snake on the rear Swadhisthana Chakra creates an angle of about 90 degrees. The deepest point of the turning of the body of the snake is on the posterior navel chakra. At the back of the Anahata Chakra, the body of the snake emerges out. The Vishuddhi Chakra at the back has the deepest point of turning of the hood-shaft of the snake. Above it comes the outward rise of the head/hood of the serpent again on the posterior Ajna chakra. Entire brain above it/the top of the entire brain  is the place, where there is a Kundalini sensation (in the middle of the foremost and most posterior part of the upper surface of the head; it feels like a pit here, hence it is also called Brahmarandhra). There are thousand phanas/hoods of the great serpent/god serpent. That is why it is called Sahasrar (one thousand parts). Kundalini is present on the middle main hood of the serpent.

Kundalini-experience with Nag/serpent during meditation

I was meditating with the tantric method one day in the same context. I started meditating on Nag in the above ways. I felt the Kundalini emerging on his tail / vajra-crest and going up to his multi hood / my brain with a serpent-like rustle. In my brain, kundalini was very shining, calm and like Lord Narayana. It was as if Lord Narayana was doing luxury over Sheshnag in the form of Kundalini. Together I got the same feeling as in the Naga temple above. Then I was able to understand the importance of serpent in spirituality.

Serpent worship

Serpent is considered sacred and revered in almost all religions. Narayana sleeps on the serpent. The serpent also sits on the forehead of Lord Shiva. In many religions, two snakes are shown wrapped together. They are possibly two tantric parteners tied in yab-yum asana/posture.

Nag is not Kundalini

I kept listening that Kundalini is a serpent. But kundalini is not a serpent. She walks like a serpent on Nag’s body / nervous system. In the same way, as God Vishnu/Narayana is not a serpent himself, but he shines on the serpent.

Nag gives extra strength to Kundalini

It is not that Kundalini awakening occurs only with the Nag. Premyogi vajra did not pay attention to the serpent. He once felt Kundalini rising straight up inside his body, like a helicopter rising straight up in the air. The attention to the serpent only gives her additional strength to get up. That is why the serpent is shown along with most of the big gods and goddesses.

Earth on Sheshnag’s head

There is a mythological belief that the god Sheshnag / Multi-Hooded Serpent has all the earth on his head. In fact, this Sheshnag is our own aforementioned nervous system. The whole earth is the same as all the experiences in our nervous system / brain. In fact there is nothing gross and out. This last sentence is the basic mantra of spirituality. 

Superimposing Kundalini over sensation

Every physical sensation goes through the nerve to the brain. When Kundalini / a special mental picture is superimposed over it, then she also reaches the brain with it. The most intense and enjoyable sensation of the body is that of the Vajra-tip. Therefore, the Kundalini charged with this sensation becomes alive in the brain. That is why it is said that Kundalini sleeps in Muladhara. In fact, only the Vajra-tip is depicted in Muladhara Chakra, both joining through an imaginary line. That is called the tail of the serpent. Kundalini sleeps there in the common man. This means that Kundalini cannot be awakened there. She has to be taken to the brain for awakening. Nag has his tail entered into his mouth. This means that kundalini starting at the Vajra, returns to the same in the form of ejaculation, and is wasted from there. The serpent’s standing upright by opening its coil means that the Kundalini is moved in a straight direction from the Vajra tip to the brain via the spinal cord, not rotated in the sexual area again and again. There can be a feeling that the whole sexual area (which is of a large snake’s ground pile / pitcher-like shape) is immersed with kundalini fully in all sides, kundalini thus gaining energy from it and going straight to the top. There at the top of serpent’s hood/brain, the Kundalini is strengthened, and it is not taken back to the vajra in the form of ejaculation. However, the Kundalini can be moved slowly down through the front / forward chakras, making them stronger. The Sanskrit word Kundalini means a thing having Kundali / coil along with. That is, a mental figure sitting on a serpent’s coil.
