Kundalini man grows as Lord Kartikeya

Friends, I am finding the story of Lord Kartikeya very interesting. Many Kundalini secrets also seem to be hidden in this. So we will investigate it thoroughly. According to Shiv Purana, then the child born on the reed was seen by the sage Vishwamitra. The boy asked him to get his Vedokta sanskar or ritual ceremony done. When Vishwamitra said that he was a Kshatriya or warrior caste and not a Brahmin caste, Kartikeya told him that he had become a Brahmin by his boon. Then he baptised him. Then there came the six krittikas. When they started fighting over that child, he made six mouths and started breastfeeding from the six together. Agnidev also gave him powers by calling him his son. Taking those powers, he climbed Mount Karaunch and broke its summit. Then Indra got angry and attacked him with a thunderbolt, from which three men Shakha, Vaishakh and Naigam were born and all four of them ran to kill Indra. The Kritikas brought up Kartikeya after drinking their milk, and gave him all the comforts of the world. They kept him hidden from the eyes of the world so that no one would snatch that lovely little boy from them.

Parvati was apprehensive and asked Shiva where his unfailing semen had gone. Who stole it? That cannot fail. When Lord Shiva was sitting in his meeting with Parvati and other deities, he asked all the deities about this. He said that whoever stole his unfailing semen would be liable to punishment, because the king who does not punish the punishable, he becomes defamed in the world. All the deities gave their explanation in turn, and gave different curses to the seducer. Then Agnidev said that he gave that semen to the wives of the Saptarishis on the orders of Shiva. He said that he gave it to Himalaya. Himalaya told that he could not bear it and gave it to Ganga. Ganga said that she poured that unbearable semen into the reed grass. Vayudev or god of air said that at that very moment that semen became a child. Surya said that because he could not see the crying child, he went to the sunset untimely. Chandra or moon said that the Krutikas took him to their home. Jal or water said that Krittika has raised that child by lactating. Sandhya or dawn said that Kritikas have named him Karthik after lovingly nurturing him. Ratri or night said that those krittikas would never let her go away from her eyes. The day said that those krittikas dress him in the best ornaments, and make for him delicious food. This made both Shivparvati very happy, and all the people too. Then the ganas of Shiva went to Kritika with the divine plane. When the Kritikas refused to give him to them, the ganas showed them the fear of Shivaparvati. When the Kritikas were scared, Kartikeya consoled them and said that they do not need to be afraid while he was there. They hugged Kartikeya to the heart while weeping and asked him how he would be able to separate from his lactating mothers who would not let him go out of sight even for a moment. Kartikeya said that he would come to meet them. Mounting on the divine plane, Kartikeya came to Shivaparvati at Kailash. A festival of joy was celebrated. Shivparvati hugged him. Impressed by the divine radiance of Kartikeya, many people became his devotees and started praising him. They call him the one who helps attain Shiva and gives freedom from birth and death. They called him their favorite presiding deity. A goat tied for a man’s yagya had run away. Everyone looked for him everywhere in the universe, but he could not be found. Then the man came to Lord Kartikeya and started praying to him that only he could bring that goat, otherwise his Ajamedha or goat sacrificing Yagya would be destroyed. Kartikeya entrusted that task to a gana named Veerbahu as created by him. He brought the goat tied from any corner of the universe and handed it over to the man in front of Kartikeya. Kartikeya, sprinkling water on it, told him that the goat was not worthy of sacrifice, and gave it to the man. He left after thanking Kartikeya.

Revelation of the above kundalini metaphor

Vishwamitra had experienced Kundalini. He was a Kshatriya, but Brahmatej had come to him by the experience of Kundalini. He became a Brahmarishi only by the experience of the same Kundalini Purush i.e. Kartikeya. Brahmarishitva is by means of Kundalini, not only by caste or religion. To perform the rites of Kartikeya means that he established the Kundalini Purush or kundalini man with his yogasadhana. The six krittikas are the six chakras. Kundalini Purush i.e. Kundalini picture travels on all the chakras, sometimes going to one chakra and sometimes to another chakra. This is called their fighting among themselves. Then the yogi, with intense yoga practice, made him move around all the chakras so fast that he appeared to be situated on all the chakras simultaneously. It is like this that if one moves a burning torch around rapidly, it looks like it is burning simultaneously in the whole circle. This is said to make the six faces of Kartikeya and drink the milk of all the six krittikas simultaneously. One gets strength from the meditation of the Kundalini Purush on the chakras. This is said to drink the milk by Kartikeya. Romance related subjects are also called ‘hot’. That’s why Agnidev has control over those subjects. Because the Kundalini Purush originated from these romantic subjects, that is why he became the son of Agnidev. Even after its origin, the Kundalini Purush continued to get strength from Tantric Yoga, in which tantric type love plays the main role. This is said to give strength to Kartikeya by Agnidev. Then Kundalini came on top of the agyachakra taking power from god of fire. Mooladhara and Ajnachakra are shown to be directly connected to each other. It is said that Kartikeya climbed the mountain of Krauncha, agyachakra being the krauncha. The word closest to krauncha in hindi is kranti or revolution. The agya chakra is an intelligent chakra. Revolution happens only by intellect, not by foolishness. Kartikeya breaks the summit of the mountain krauncha, meaning it destroys the sharp, judgmental and dual intelligence. The soul filled with ego wants to prevent Kundalini from going to Sahasrara. That ego is called Indra. The thing that he stops Kundalini from ascending up is the thunderbolt attack on Kartikeya by him. Kundalini comes from three nadis on the agya chakra. These nadis are Ida, Pingala and Sushumna. Due to this, Kundalini keeps on coming down from the Agya chakra, and keeps on going up again through the three nadis. This makes her very powerful. This is the separation of the three pieces from Kartikeya due to the thunderbolt. The shakha branch is Ida, Vishakha is Pingala, and Naigam is Sushumna. Shakha itself means branch in Hindi. The name associated with branch is given because these two nadis are like twigs. The main tree is Sushumna, hence it is named as Naigam. Sushumna is the essence of all the nigamas i.e. Dharmashastras, hence the name Naigam. Together with the Kundalini Purush i.e. Kartikeya, these three metaphoric men rushed to kill Indra, which means that Kundalini was moving towards Sahasrara forcefully, due to which the ego of Indra was to be destroyed. Everyone is praising Kartikeya in the same way as the Kundalini Purush form as deity is praised. Kundalini can also get power through tantric activities. This is more so when intense manifestation of Kundalini is accompanied by a lot of physical exertion. This means that it is Kundalini that makes tantric yagyas successful. The completion of the yajna by finding the scapegoat by a gana named Veerbahu, born by Kartikeya, reflects this principle. Veerbahu means a person who is brave because of the power of his arms. It is a sign of labor. Most of the time, Kundalini is satisfied with the symbols of Shakti, there is no need for violence for Shakti. It also implies the combination of least violence and maximum spiritual gain. It is shown that Kartikeya sprayed water on the goat and asked it to be released to protest the illegitimate violence in the name of Tantra. This is a symbolic form of violence. The rest next week.

Kundalini literature as Sanskrit literature is a spiritual, psychological, ultra modern and evergreen literature

Sanskrit literature is an unique literature because of being Kundalini based literature

Friends, I am born fond of Sanskrit literature. Sanskrit literature is very captivating, alive, enthusiastic and full of consciousness. Many years ago a Sanskrit scholar gentleman wrote a beautiful, concise and knowledge-rich book named ‘Sanskrit Sahitya Parichayika’ that means ‘a mini introducer to Sanskrit literature’. At that time the era of online books had not arrived. Due to this it remained in oblivion till date. I wanted to put it online. There was a problem with typing on the computer, as most of the words were from Sanskrit, and were difficult to type. Good luck to Google’s intelligent keyboard in Android. Most of the typing was done by itself. I type only the first few characters, the rest it predicts itself. Now fully typed. I have even published it online on most of the publishing platforms. I will be doing it online soon in the rest of the places as well. It is also available as a free PDF book at the link for free books on the shop page of this website. It is worth reading for all literature lovers. Nowadays a basic introduction to any subject is enough. Speaking it means that a hint of the subject is enough. The rest of the detail about it is found on Google and through other means. It is only necessary to make the initial imprint on mind associated with literature, which this book makes very well. This book is no match for the full enjoyment of Sanskrit literature. It is definitely small, but it is like an ocean in a pitcher. Guided by this book, I started searching for Kalidas’s Kumarasambhav poetry on Google. I came to know that it describes the story of the love of Shiva-Parvati, and the birth of Lord Kartikeya from them. Kumar means boy or child, Sambhav means origin. It is said that due to the sin of describing the sexual intercourse between Shiva and Parvati, the poet Kalidas had got leprosy. So there he left it incomplete. Later it was completed. Some people say that the general public did not accept their sexual intercourse description due to devotion towards Shiva and Parvati. So he had to stop it. The first possibility, though rare, seems factual, as it is not a common sexual intercourse. It cannot be described in a worldly way. It is in the form of a tantrasadhana or tantric meditation, and metaphorical, as shown in the previous post. There is no place for worldly humor and entertainment in it. There is also a psychological fact behind this possibility. Since many people have beliefs associated with the gods, their insults may not only reflect their expressed badmouthing or ill-will of displeasure, but may also be expressed in a subconscious form. Observing in this way, it is known that all the Sanskrit literature is based on the stories and narratives of the Hindu Vedas and Puranas. Most of the literature lovers and writers take a favorite subject from the Vedas or Puranas, and by expanding it, they create a new literature. Because all the subjects of Vedas and Puranas are scientific because of being based on Kundalini, therefore Sanskrit literature also proves to be Kundalini-oriented and scientific.

Making public the revelation of mythical spiritual stories of various religions appears a fundamental demand of today’s modern, scientific, and materialistic era

I sometimes feel that revealing spiritual mysteries can bring great benefits to the society. I do not say that the mystery should be revealed everywhere, because by doing so the joy of mystical tales will end. But at least in one place, there should be a composition available to reveal those secrets. It is said that spiritual principles and techniques were made mystical so that man would not be misled by trying them before spiritual maturity. Even if a man comes to know the truth of the mystery even before his spiritual maturity, he will be able to benefit from it only when he attains maturity. By understanding the mystery, he will surely get the benefit in this way that he will be inspired to attain spiritual maturity quickly by trying to achieve spiritual progress as soon as possible, so that he can benefit from that mystery. Together, by then he will be well acquainted with the secrets and principles of yoga practice. Those won’t look new and awkward when he needs them. It is also said that if a person keeps the goods of a tea shop with him for a long time, then one day he will definitely open a tea shop and become a successful industrialist. In today’s era, more than ever before, it seems necessary to make spiritual revelation public because honest, and accomplished spiritual masters are rarely found these days, and those who do are also mostly out of reach of common public. Earlier this was not the case. At that time spirituality was dominant. Nowadays, physicality dominates more. If one becomes spiritually mature nowadays, and does not get the right guidance as per his need, then he may have to suffer great spiritual loss. Another benefit will also be available that when all the religions are revealed, then only Kundalini element that’s nondual element will be seen as the basic element of spirituality. This will end the mutual animosity between all the religions and in fact Sarvadharma Sambhav or equality of all religions will be established. It will end most of the worldwide conflicts.

Ida Nadi has been called Rishi’s wife Arundhati

Now let’s move on to the allegorical narrative described in the previous post. The sage wife named Arundhati, who is described in it, is actually Ida Nadi. Ida Nadi represents the feminine part of Ardhanarishvara or half man-half woman god . Sometimes while practicing hatha yoga, the prana starts flowing more in the ida nadi. This means that she prevents prana from entering the sushumna. It is only through the Sushumna that the prana is well established on the chakras. Along with Prana, there is also the luminosity of semen. It is told by saying that Arundhati prevented the sage wives from approaching the god of fire. But the yogi, by meditating on the agya chakra, made flow the virya tej or semen luminosity along with the prana through the sushumna and poured it on the chakras. It is shown that the sage wives did not listen to Arundhati, but obeyed the path as directed subconsciously by Lord Shiva. Ajnachakra is also a symbol of Shiva, because his third eye opens there.

The difference between Kundalini awakening and Kundalini yoga is only in the extent of experience, not the nature of the experience

In many places, Sahasrara is considered to be the eighth chakra. The transmission of semen up to Sahasrara is more difficult than other chakras. Doing so forcibly can cause headaches. Therefore semen is established only on the lower seven chakras. In this metaphor it has been said that out of eight, only seven wives went to Agnidev and started getting heat of fire. Even the eighth wife came, but she did not take the heat of the fire. Meaning that even a little bit of semen goes up to Sahasrara, but it is negligible. Up to Sahasrar, the semen tej goes usually through more active sushumna. In this metaphor it is said that the Ganges river poured the semen of Shiva into the grass of the reed. It should always be kept in mind that there is always a Kundalini picture or mental thoughts in it’s absence associated with prana or virya tej or energy or power. All these names are synonymous with each other, that is, all are synonymous. The first and most burning sensation is felt on the front Swadhishthana chakra born of the semen tej. It is associated with the same genitalia referred to in the previous article as the pigeon. Along with this, when the Kundalini is also meditated on the front chakras, then it starts coming on the front chakras. Then it is felt going from the chakras to the spinal cord. Probably it seeps from the front chakra to the rear chakra. That’s why both the front and back chakras interact with each other through a thin line, means both are said to be connected together through a short energy channel. This is told in the mythological story by saying that the sage wives gave that bright semen to the Himalaya, because the rear chakras are situated along the spinal cord. The Puranas are very meticulously written. Each of their words has a huge and deep meaning. This semen-shifting is felt by a feeling of pleasure with the contraction running from bottom to top in the central part of the back and a feeling of lessening of the burden below. Then after a while, with the help of that contraction, it is felt to enter into the sushumna. The feeling is very mild, and appears to be a joyous or orgasmic line of soreness or any sensation made up of a length wise spasmodic type contraction of central part of back. Simultaneously, the Kundalini picture is felt in Sahasrar. With practice, all kinds of experiences keep on increasing. In this metaphor it has been said that Agnidev gave that seminal glory to seven sage wives, sage wives gave to Himalaya, Himalaya to Ganga river, and Ganges river to reed grass. It simply means that Kundalini ascends to Sahasrar only sequentially, not directly. This is often said in yoga. However, through tantric yoga, one can go straight to Sahasrara. Someone’s Kundalini is said to be in the Muladhara, someone’s ascended up to the Swadhisthana chakra, someone’s up to the Manipura chakra, someone’s up to the Anahata chakra, someone’s up to the Vishuddhi, someone’s up to the Agya chakra and someone’s up to the Sahasrara chakra. Although Kundalini rises and descends in these seven chakras in daily yoga practice, it takes a lot of practice to keep the Kundalini on one chakra for a long time. Your Kundalini will also go to Sahasrara every day, but it will remain in Sahasrar for the same amount of time you meditate on Sahasrara during yoga practice. When Kundalini starts staying in Sahasrara continuously, throughout the day, for many days and without any yoga practice, then only it will be considered as ascended to Sahasrara. This is also called the prana rising or pranotthan. In this man is full of divine qualities. Animals become aware of this state of man. When I am close to this stage, animals start to sniff me strangely and show other reactions. There’s maximum probability of kundalini awakening during this phase. For this, sexual yoga helps a lot. It is not necessary that all these experiences happen only when there is Kundalini awakening. Every Kundalini yogi always has these experiences. Many do not understand them, many cannot feel them properly, and many cannot separate them from other minor experiences. This probably happens when Kundalini yoga is not practiced daily or regularly for long periods of time. On leaving the practice, the experiences related to Kundalini reach the normal level of the beginning. I’ll give an example. While taking a bath, wherever the touch of water in any part of the body is felt with meditation, that sensation is felt with a shrinkage going through the back to the Sahasrar. It is evident from this that the Sushumna Nadi lies in the spinal cord, because it carries all the sensations of the body to the brain. The difference between Kundalini awakening and Kundalini yoga is only in the amount of experience, not the nature of the experience. In Kundalini awakening, the Kundalini experience reaches the highest level, and other experiences related to it can also reach the highest level. After the momentary glimpse of kundalini awakening, one is again an ordinary kundalini Yogi, not more.

Meditation at Tip

Meditation at Tip is a shortened form of the Vajroli Kriya. It can be called as partial vajroli. In this, the semen is not thrown out, but carried on the penis tip or Vajrashikha, and then it is brought back up. It is as if without ejaculation the sexual sensation is increased to near its peak sensation, and then intercourse is stopped. It is such that even if a little intercourse is done after that last upper limit, then the ejaculation occurs due to uncontrolled force of genital orgasm. This technique is popular among today’s tantrics especially Buddhist tantrics. It’s also very impressive and powerful. This technique has come from the Shiva Puran story of Agnidev where in he becoming a pigeon as described in the previous article. It is also more secure, because it does not require much expertise and practice like full Vajroli, and there is no fear of infection etc. Actually, the mystical stories written in the form of metaphors in Shiva Purana are the basic foundations of the world wide Tantra.

The body and its parts should be respected as deities

It is mentioned in the Tantra scriptures that all the deities reside in the vagina. That is why the yoni is worshiped in the Kamakhya temple. With this all the deities are worshiped on their own. Actually this happens only because of the tremendous energy of Muladhara. In fact, this is what gives energy to the mooladhara. One experiences the Kundalini picture there due to this tremendous amount of energy. Because the mind is comprised of all the deities, and Kundalini is the essence or representative of the whole mind, that is why it is called so. Therefore some of the sexual parts of the metaphor described in the previous article should not be taken for granted or shouldn’t be misunderstood or misinterpreted. According to the philosophy of Physiology, all the parts of the body are in the form of gods. According to the Puranas too, all the parts of the body are gods. All 33 billion deities reside in the body. This means that every cell of the body is a god form. This also implies that serving and caring for the body is tantamount to worshiping all the deities. This all has been proved with facts in the book ‘sharirvigyan darshan’. This body is the essence of all the Puranas and the philosophy of Physiology or sharirvigyan darshan. The Puranas were written in ancient times, but the philosophy of physiology is modern. Therefore, no part of the body should be insulted. Insulting bodily parts insults the deities. By doing this the deities do not help in destroying the ignorance or demon Tarakasur, which delays the liberation of man unnecessarily. Many people get upset in the name of religion because of comparing a deity to a part of the body. It means considering the body and its parts as inferior to god. On one hand they are pleasing the deity, but on the other they are also displeasing the god.

kundalini tantric yoga helped by sexual sublimation and seminal transmutation in Hindu mythological shiva purana~sex to samadhi-super consciousness

ॐ कर्पूरगौरं करुणावतारं संसारसारं भुजगिन्द्रहारम् सदावसंतं हृदयारविन्दे भवंभवानीसहितं नमामि

A famous Shiva Stuti Sanskrit Mantra

Friends, according to Shiv Purana, Goddess Parvati got married with Lord Shiva. Then Shiva kept on roaming while romancing  with Parvati. Hundreds of years passed while enjoying by him, but he did not get above it. Due to this, all the gods went to Brahma in despair. Brahma took them all along and went to Lord Narayan. Narayan explained to them that no pair of man and woman should be stopped from enjoying each other. If one does this, he has to bear the pain of separation from his wife and children. He gave examples of many such people who had done so and for which they were also punished. Then he said that Lord Shiva would have intercourse with Parvati for a thousand years. After that they will rise above it. So till then the gods were advised not to meet them. But even after a thousand years, Shiva and Parvati did not come out of the cave. The earth began to tremble due to the play of both of them, and due to the exhaustion of the Kachchap or great tortoise and the Sheshnag or great serpent on which the earth rests, the air of the atmosphere also became fixed column-like. Then all the gods were distraught. They reached near the entrance of that cave. At that time Shiva and Parvati were playing in sexual intercourse. The deities cried out in sorrowful voices praising Shiva, and made him aware of the atrocities inflicted on them by the demon Tarakasur. Hearing their cry, Lord Shiva left Parvati and out of compassion came to the door to meet them. Shiva explained to them that no one can avert the being or destiny, not even he himself. Then he said that whatever had to happen, it has happened, now let us correct the situation ahead. Shiva said that only one who can receive his semen can protect all of you from the demon Tarakasura. All the gods put forward the fire god for this. Then Shiva reassuredly dropped his semen on the earth. The fire god drank that semen with his beak becoming as a pigeon. Then Parvati came out furious from inside and became angry with the gods, accusing them of making her childless by creating disturbance in her enjoyment of intercourse. Saying this she cursed them that they too would be childless like her. Then rebuking the god of fire, she said that he has done a low act like drinking semen, so he will not get peace anywhere, and will continue to burn with fire. Disturbed by the unbearable effulgence of the semen, he went to the shelter of Mahadev Shiva, and narrated his tale to him. Mahadev Shiva told a remedy to reduce his irritation. He said that if seven women who take bath early in the morning in the month of Magha or January take this semen in their vagina, then he will get rid of the burning sensation of that semen. Then Goddess Parvati took Lord Shiva inside the cave again, and having sex with him produced a son named Ganesha. Then eight sage wives arrived before the deities located at the cave entrance. They were getting cold by bathing in the cold water of Magha month, so seven of them started going near that fire. Another sage wife Arundhati knew everything, so she even stopped them, but they did not stop. As soon as they approached fire, the semen entered inside them through the subtle sparks of the fire, and they became pregnant. When their husbands, Rishis came to know about this, they abandoned them, calling them adulteress. Now they all started wandering here and there in the world, regretting their act. The burning produced by the semen inside them was not doing their well. So they went to the Himalaya Mountain and by giving that semen to Himalaya became free from the weight of irritation and pressure. When the Himalaya could not bear the radiance of semen, it gave it to the Ganges river. Ganga too was troubled by the effulgence of that semen, and she poured it into the reeds growing on its bank. There a child was born from it on top of a reed. There was happiness all around as soon as he was born. Unknowingly, Shiva and Parvati began to feel the ultimate happiness, freshness and the end of any great burden. Due to excessive love, milk started coming out of Parvati’s breasts on her own. There was a festive atmosphere all around their residence. The gods began to rejoice, and the end of demons like Tarakasura seemed to be near. He became famous as the boy Kartikeya, who grew up and killed Tarakasur.

Psychological and Kundalini Yoga oriented analysis of the above metaphor

Shiva is the soul of a living being. There is essentially no difference between the soul and the Supreme Soul. Parvati is his wife. The living entity has full cohabitation with his wife in every human birth, but does not take any means of liberation from life and death. The gods have created the world and the body of the living entity so that the soul living in it can be liberated. The deities also benefit from it, because they then renounce the bondage of the limited body of the soul and start living in their unlimited cosmic body as before. For a few births, they allow him to remain immersed in sexual pleasure with the permission of the Lokpalak God Vishnu. But when his tens of births pass like this, then Vishnu along with the deities also goes to urge him. In relation to spiritual liberation, nature has given free will to man, so he cannot be coerced. This means that the gods have to pray and praise him with love. The gods tell him that the demon Tarakasura is troubling them, and only his son can kill him. Tarakasura is a symbol of ignorance, as he blinds man. Kundalini is said to be the son of Jiva or living being. Actually the soul or jiva is in the form of the linga, and his wife is in the form of the love tunnel, which is the cave itself. Through various spiritual practices Kundalini develops in his mind, like by god worship and satsang or good company. The power of sex also gets mixed with this spirituality. Due to the influence of the fierce Kundalini developing through this mixture, vibrations start to arise in his body, and breathing also starts to crumble. This is actually self occurring pranayama and yogasana to counteract body stress naturally. This is depicted in the metaphorical story as the vibration of the earth and the static pillar of the wind. The Jiva’s central nervous system extends into the spinal cord and brain, shaped like a hooded serpent. The Kundalini picture grows in the same central nervous system. It is natural that it will get tired of the tremendous Kundalini’s pressure. The same central nervous system controls the speed of breathing and the vibrations of the body. Due to its exhaustion, the breathing becomes irregular, long or distorted. That’s why, in this metaphor it has been told that due to the fatigue of Sheshnag, the air of the atmosphere started columning. He feels the same Kundalini around the Swadhisthana chakra and Mooladhara chakra during sexual intercourse. This is depicted as the gathering of all the deities at the cave. This is concentration of blood there. Blood is the representative of whole body. Actually every god is present there inside the body. Then Shiva in the form of Shivlingam comes out of the cave. The soul becomes aware by the inspiration of the Supreme Soul that when the Kundalini picture becomes so much condensed with the element of semen in the genital area, then by offering it to the brain, samadhi or Kundalini awakening can definitely be achieved. Therefore he tells the deities of his own body gathered there that whoever can hold on to the effulgence of his semen will be helpful in killing Tarakasura that’s spiritual ignorance. Then the living entity pulls the semen upwards by strongly contracting the muscles of his pelvis, stomach and ureter upwards. Due to this powerful action, heat is produced in the body. This is what is called semen drinking by the god of fire. The sucking of semen begins with the genitals, which have the shape of a beaked bird. This is said as fire god becoming a pigeon and drinking semen with help of its beak. Many tantric hatha yogis master this process so much that even after pouring out the semen on ground, they suck it back up. This technique is called Vajroli Kriya in Tantra. Because of this, because semen does not fall in the vagina, it is natural that pregnancy will not be formed. This is the curse of Parvati to the gods. Actually, gods are helping to do everything inside the body. Since the body is made up of the deities, it is natural that the deities will also become childless i.e. sterile due to the soul becoming childless. Holding semen causes a pressure or burning sensation in the genital area. This is the curse given by Parvati to Agnidev. By the order of the Guru or the Supreme Soul, the soul transfers the effulgence of the semen of his genital organs to the seven chakras of its body. Since the eighth chakra is outside the body and slightly above the brain, it cannot give it semen tej that’s effulgence. While taking a bath, there is a blissful sensation and contraction on the chakras. The colder the water, the greater the experience. That is why in the scriptures it has been instructed for everyone, especially yogis, to wake up early in the morning and take a bath with cold water throughout the year. With the power of their contraction, the chakras pull that semen from the genitals towards themselves. This is the sages’ wives going near the fire due to cold, and through the subtle sparks of fire, the radiance of semen enters in them. Since the month of Magh that’s January is the coldest, it is natural that this process takes place the most in this month. This is shown in the metaphor in the form of eight women, seven women and their bathing in cold water in the month of Magha. Because Kundalini-based hatha yoga has the same effect as cold water on the chakras, this metaphorical part also symbolizes hatha yoga part (especially Asanas) of kundalini yoga. The mind is shown as a sage and different groups of brain thoughts as different sages. Different thoughts of the mind are buried in different chakras. That is why the chakras are called sages’ wives. The chakra is shaped like the central hole of a ring, so it is depicted in the form of a yoni or vagina. The thought of the mind hidden in the chakra is feminine. The effulgence of semen established in it is masculine. The union of the two creates a pregnancy. This is said to be pregnant sage wives. The effulgence of semen on the chakra is also not as strong, and the Kundalini thought there is also not as strong as the Kundalini thought in the brain. That’s why the pregnancy could not be successful. The chakras began to feel burning due to the heat of the womb and semen. Due to this pregnancy on chakra, the noise of stray and extravagant thoughts on the chakra stopped, and was replaced by a single Kundalini thought as a baby fetus. Meaning the mind has left the chakra, because the mind is the cluster of thoughts. This is what sages leave their wives on the charge of adultery. The most burning and pressure is felt in the Swadhisthana chakra. The chakras gave that effulgent semen along with the kundalini foetus in their wombs to the spinal cord. Meaning that the soul noticed and sensed its spinal cord along with the burning of the Swadhisthana chakra with meditation helped by asanas. The spinal cord runs from the Muladhara Chakra to the brain. But its feeling is more from the rear Swadhisthana Chakra to the rear Agya Chakra. This is what is giving the semen and womb by the sage’s wives to the Himalaya. The lower, caudal region is the lower base of the mountain, and the brain is the upper base or summit of that mountain, while the spinal cord is a thin, long and high hill connecting those two fundamental bases. Bone does not have the capacity to make the semen inside it flow because it is solid and hard. Due to this, the irritating radiance of semen started putting pressure on its various and special points constantly at same place. All these points are in the spinal cord just behind the chakras of the front channel. There are two main points of these, the rear Swadhishthana chakra and the rear Agya chakra. In case of excess of semen tej, it is also formed in the area of Anahata Chakra. And If it is still excessive, it is also formed in the region of the navel chakra, in this way. When the intensity of semen increases very much by regular, and continuous yoga practice, full of tantric support, then it goes from the spinal cord to the Sushumna nadi. It has been written in such a way that when the semen became unbearable for the Himalaya, it poured it into the river Ganges. The river Ganges is called Sushumna Nadi here. The luminous effulgence, passing through Sushumna, enters the Sahasrara in the form of an electric line. There the Kundalini gets awakened by the power of that radiance. It has been written as a metaphor that the semen flowing with the Ganges became unbearable for the Ganges. That’s why Ganga poured it into the grass of the reed growing on the shore. There a child was born from it on top of a reed. The grassy shore of the Ganges is here said to be the brain. On the scalp covering the brain, there are sharp and stinging hairs like reeds. Animals do not eat both. There are also some such branches coming out of the root in the reed grass, on which flowers grow. These are woody and knotty like bamboo. Small wooden and decorative furniture is also made from these. These are covered with a dense bark of leaves, which is removed and crushed to make a fiber. Moonj rope is made from it. That is why Moonj is also a symbol of spirituality and sattvikta. Actually Sarkanda that’s reed is a multipurpose plant, which grows on the banks of river or pond. In that panicle branch of the reed, there are knots in it’s whole length at intervals in the same way as the chakras in the spinal cord. Perhaps that is why the birth of the child has been told on it. The awakening of the Kundalini picture is the birth of a child. But it is not a physical child, but a mental child. Even if there is no awakening, the persistence of the Kundalini picture in the form of a firm samadhi in the mind as a permanent and clear one will also be called the birth of a Kundalini-child. Semen does not produce it by coming out, but by going inside or in the opposite direction. Brahma is also a mental image, that is why he is called Ayonij. Means one who is not born from the vagina. One may doubt how Kundalini awakening or firm samadhi can be attained by just one time attempt of sexual yoga. But it can happen. The famous and great Tantra philosopher Osho used to say that even once one experiences samadhi properly with sexual intercourse, spiritual success is attained. It is a different matter that he took such tantric secrets openly through direct verbal speeches to the general public, due to which many became his enemies and critics due to misunderstandings. It is also feared that some conspiracy might be behind his death. That’s why tantra is called secret art or guhya vidya. Although it is not preferred to hide it in today’s open world, yet some secrecy is still needed and it should not be divulged out to ineligible, non desirous, unbelievable, unbelieving and non dedicated person directly or indirectly. Displaying it in online blogs for everyone without showing author’s direct personal identity and without fixing any potential target, and in an unbiased and unselfish way can’t be called as a breach in secrecy in today’s open world. Perhaps to maintain this secrecy, the author of the Puranas never made his name and address public. Everywhere the word ‘Vyasa’ is used to denote the author, which is a common generic term given to all spiritual narrators. With the awakening of Kundalini, half the left part of the body and half the right part of the body, both became strong and happy in equal measure. The Kundalini picture here symbolizes the happiness of the left part or woman or Parvati, and the peace of the wandering soul here symbolizes the happiness of the right part or man or Shiva. Meaning that both separated from each other, Shiva and Parvati became one in the form of their son. Jiva was once complete and one. But due to the power of Maya, it became incomplete by splitting into two pieces. Since then the two pieces have been striving to be one. The development of the living entity and the world takes place only through the hustle and bustle of the soul to become complete again. Both the male and female parts or both partners of the tantric couple also became happy after being freed from the burden, pressure, and burning of the semen tej. There was joy and happiness in whole mind. The hair of the body blossomed. This is depicted in the story in such a way that on the birth of that child, both Shiva and Parvati, and all the gods were very pleased, and there was joy all around. After Kundalini awakening, the Kundalini picture became more and more clear and permanent in the mind. Then it continued to remain in the mind in the form of a permanent samadhi. From that permanent samadhi the attachment to the world diminished, and the nondual feeling continued to grow. Then the soul realized its liberation-in-life. This was the end of its ignorance. This is shown in the mythological story in such a way that the child grew up to be known as Kartikeya or Skanda, who killed the demon Tarakasur. Along with this, it has also been written about this story that whoever reads or listens to this story with devotion, he will attain spiritual liberation while attaining all the pleasures of the world. This means that this mythical and allegorical story is describing Tantric Kundalini Yoga only. If it were a story of simple cohabitation, birth of a son or a demon-killer, then there would be doubt in the attainment of simple worldly pleasures, leave alone spiritual liberation.

Kundalini awakening as Deepawali and Lord Rama’s yogasadhana as mythological allegory of the epic Ramayana

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.

Kundalini Shakti as mother Sita in the body, and her exit is Sitaharan by Dashanan Ravana

Friends, in a previous blog article I was talking about how Ramayana seems like a metaphorical description of Kundalini Yoga. We will look at it in broader perspective in this article.

Mother Sita is the Kundalini Shakti in the body, and her exit is Sitaharan by Dashanan Ravana

The ten heads of the demon Ravana symbolize the ten doshas, the five defects of the sense organs, and the five defects of the work organs. Those doshas had taken out the Kundalini Shakti. Due to this, the Kundalini Shakti came out of the body and wandered in the world. While wandering in the material world, she was working in the interest of those defects, due to which those defects were becoming more and more powerful. She was making the lust dosha stronger by creating various worldly desires. By making fights, she was giving strength to the anger defect. By creating a desire to have more and more, she was increasing greed. By driving the body after beautiful things, she was increasing the delusion. She was increasing the sedation or Mada by getting intoxicated, etc., and by putting a bad eye on the property of others, she was increasing the jealousy dosha. In the same way she was also increasing the five doshas of the karmendriyas or work organs. That power is Mother Sita. The use of that Kundalini power by the ten doshas to increase their strength has been written as the stealing of Mother Sita by Dashanan Ravana.

Union of soul and kundalini in sahasrara chakra as Seeta meeting Rama again

To do various activities with non-attachment in the external material world through Kundalini Shakti is the way of Mother Sita to remain away from demon Ravana and unattached to him. The return of the Kundalini Shakti inward in the body through intense Kundalini yoga and its meeting with the soul after entering the Sahasrara is the reunion of Lord Rama with Mother Sita. The destruction of the defects of the ten senses by the union of Kundalini and the soul in Sahasrara is the killing of Ravana, Dashanan or ten-headed demon by Lord Rama with the help of Sita. Bharatvarsha is the body, Lanka is the physical world outside the body, and the ocean between them is the dividing zone between the two. Outside world can never enter inside. We don’t feel the world, but we only feel the speculated image of outside world inside our brain. That’s why great ocean has been depicted between both zones to show their absolute separability. Rama reaching Lanka through a bridge in sea is symbolic as we can not bring a thing back from an area without reaching that. He and his army didn’t use boats but a bridge. It means that our brain doesn’t actually reach the external world but gets the information through bridge in the form of lights and sounds entering the brain.

All Puranas give mythological and metaphorical description to Kundalini Yoga

In the olden times illiteracy and backwardness prevailed. Kundalini yoga was a subject associated with subtle spiritual science. At that time even the gross science was beyond the understanding of common people, how could they understand the subtle and transcendental science like Kundalini Yoga. That is why the knowledge of Kundalini Yoga was available only to a few people of the affluent class. They wanted that the common people would also get it, because every human has the right to spiritual liberation. But they did not succeed in explaining Kundalini Yoga to them directly. That’s why they molded Kundalini yoga into metaphorical and mythological stories, so that people would read them with interest, and gradually their inclination towards Kundalini yoga would develop. The collections of those stories became Puranas. By reading those Puranas, unknowingly, Kundalini started developing inside people. This made them happy, due to which they got addicted to the Puranas. The attraction of people towards such ancient texts from then till today’s modern era seems to be due to this Kundalini-Anand. Among the people who read or listen the Puranas, whose mind was sharp, they could catch Kundalini Yoga immediately and awaken their Kundalini. In this way, the Puranas have been serving humanity since ancient times.

Importance of metaphor in spirituality

Metaphors give physicality, simplicity, interestingness, sociability and scientificity to spiritual subjects. Without it spirituality would be very dull. Although it appears as conservatism, hypocrisy, etc. in today’s scientific world but it served lot of purposes in ancient times. If in place of Shiva the formless Brahman is called, how boring it would seem. The words brain and sahasrar are too boring, whereas it’s so interesting by writing Himalaya mountain and Kailash mountain in their place. But let me tell you that the mountains mentioned in Shiv Purana seem to be symbolic or metaphorical. It is not that Kundalini awakening takes place only in the mountains. Yes, mountains do help a little more in that. There is peace. But there is also a lack of oxygen and other facilities. Due to this, most of the life is spent in getting rid of such material sufferings. Therefore, a mixture of plains and mountains is the best. Collect a lot of life force in the facilities of the plains, and go for a short time to the mountain to give it to the Kundalini. People used to do this in olden days. Similarly, the word Kundalini also does not sound as interesting as Mother Parvati or Sita seems in its place. Nevertheless, for the acceptance of today’s so-called modern and intelligent society, one has to write the reality while revealing the spiritual metaphor.

Kundalini Yoga in Ramayana through Lord Rama’s homeland Ayodhya as metaphorical story

Heartfelt tributes to the brave Indian army chief Bipin Rawat, who took the most stern stand against global terrorism and expansionism, his wife and some other senior army officers after their untimely martyrdom in a tragic helicopter crash and heartfelt wishes for their soul to rest in peace

Friends, I could not write any Kundalini article last week. The reason was hectic lifestyle. Hundreds of kilometers of bike riding had to be done on the highways due to some important work. Although the bike was latest, comfortable and sports type, yet environmental friendly. Got a good experience. Got to learn a lot new. Enjoyed the journey a lot, and learned the importance of a permanent home. As long as there is no compulsion to do any work on a man, he keeps abstaining from doing difficult work. When the situation of ‘do or die’ comes, then he does it and learns too. This week I will discuss the connection between Kundalini Yoga and the Ramayana.

On a deeper look, the Ramayana seems like a practical and inspiring description of Kundalini Yoga

Lord Rama is the symbol of the soul here. There is essentially no difference between the Supreme Soul and the soul. He practices Shakti sadhana during the nine days of Navratri. From this his Kundalini reaches Sahasrar. It makes him pure every day. On the tenth day, he destroys the egoistic self that’s Ravana by burning it with his yoga fire. His Kundalini gets awakened on the day of Diwali. It is shown the return of Rama to his home in Ayodhya. Ayodhya is that supreme abode of the soul, which no one can conquer, that is, over which there is no one. This is also the literal meaning of Ayodhya. Rama is the son of Dasharatha. Dasharatha means the chariot drawn by ten horses. The senses are called horses in the scriptures. Five work organs and five sense organs, a total of ten sense organs operate this body. That is why the body is called Dasharatha. Due to this the supreme soul becomes like a conditioned soul or Ram. Although Ram is God, but from him, it is this Dasaratha or body that produces the conditioned soul or ordinary Rama, that is why it is called the father of the soul, Rama. The story that he stays in exile for 12 years, that is Kundalini Yoga Sadhana. Through Kundalini yoga practice, a person remains the farthest and the most isolated, even while living in the midst of everyone. This is what is called exile. The wife of Dasharatha, who is Kekayi, is the supreme intelligence born in the body. She looks foolish and wicked from the outside, but in reality she is the one who is of supreme benefit. She seems like a kak or a crow to say harsh words like kanya-kanya, that’s why her name is Kekayi. She had once saved the body or Dasharatha in a battle with the demons, that is, by strictness and love, she saved Dasharatha from being corrupted by the evil habits of demons. That is why Dasharatha had deep faith in her. To maintain the intellect of Paramarth or supreme purpose, one has to walk on the path of Paramarth. The meaning of Kekayi’s threat of suicide by going to Kopbhavan or angry-house means that if at least three of her most spiritual words or demands are not fulfilled, then the body will indulge in luxuries and will do evil deeds, due to which it will be destroyed. Saraswati resides in the speech of those who walk on the right path. Their words are not false. It has been said that the Raghukul (the family tree of Rama) bound rituals never had lies, even they die but there words or promises never die. Kekayi’s demanded first boon is not to give the kingdom to Rama. It means to keep Rama away from indulgences and unnecessary responsibilities. The second boon is to give 12 years of exile to Rama. Exile is synonymous with Kundalini Yoga Sadhana. It has been written in various kundalini yoga sects that it takes around 12 years to perfect the kundalini yoga. The third boon is to make his son Bharata the king of Ayodhya. Bharata literally means ‘devoted to brotherhood’, engrossed in the devotion of brother Rama. Bharata is the detached mind of the body. He rules, but with an extinguished mind. He is not attached to the pleasures. He keeps Rama’s shoes on his throne, never sits on it himself. This is the great Karmayoga of King Rama. He does nothing in spite of doing everything and remains engrossed in Kundalini Yoga Sadhana. Rama’s wife Sita i.e. Rama’s Shakti resides with yogi Rama and not with King Rama. This is Sita’s going to the forest with Rama. likewise, Hanuman and Lakshmana also live with Yogi Rama under his guidance, not with King Rama or Bharata. Hanuman here symbolizes the wild or blind force, which through various yogic actions helps in Kundalini yoga. Lakshmana is the symbol of millions of thoughts of the mind. Laksh-mana (laksha means millions, man means thought or mind) means millions of thoughts literally. They also give their sensory energy to Kundalini. In fact, the art of depicting different parts of the mind as different persons is of great importance in allegorical narratives. Anyway, the whole world resides in the mind itself. If someone asks what Kundalini Yogi Rama used to meditate while practising Kundalini Yoga, the answer is clear that Rama used to meditate on Lord Shiva. The proof of this is the Rameshwaram shrine, where Rama himself has established the Shivling. This very famous pilgrimage comes under the Chardham Yatra of India.

The name of Rama’s second mother, Kaushalya, is derived from the word Kushal in Sanskrit that means well being. It is the intellect in the body that seeks the well-being of the body. She looks good from outside, because she wants to give all the comforts to the body, but she is not liked by Rama and the supreme intellect or Kekayi, who wants his real welfare. Kekayi does not like Rama’s body or Dasharatha, because what does the body have to do with Paramarth, it just needs luxury. Though obviously she is not liked by Dasharatha, but when she is strong, then she can tactfully tame the body or Dasharatha. This is subduing Dasharatha by Kekayi.

Kundalini is associated with permanent home

We can also call Dasharatha or body as the king of his permanent home. This is Dasharatha, the king of Ayodhya. We can also call the man’s own permanent home the city of Ayodhya, because we cannot fight it. We can’t harm it. No creature can fight with its permanent home. That is why its name is Ayodhya. It also means that no one can fight a man in his permanent home. That’s why it is said that even a dog is a lion in his own house. No matter how much fighter a man may be, he always wants peace in his permanent home. This is a psychological fact. No creature wants to be haunted by guilt all the time, because its permanent home is always attached to its mind. Because man’s mind is always connected with his permanent home, so Kundalini is also associated with permanent house, because Kundalini itself is part of the mind, or say it is the top representative of mind. That is why every man always wants to maintain his honor in his permanent home. In times of trouble, only a permanent home is remembered. You must have seen how people used to run to their permanent homes breaking the corona lockdown. Dharma (religion), Artha (money), Kama (luxuries) and Moksha (spiritual liberation) are the four Purusharthas or the goals to be achieved by a man. Their basis is this body and that body’s base is its permanent home. It has also been said that shariramadyam khalu dharmasadhanam in Sanskrit (body is the basis of every achievement). Therefore, of course, Jivatma Rama may ignore it a little bit for his Kundalini awakening, but after Kundalini awakening he has to enter this body and through it into materiality. Of course he may leave his home and go to the forest for Kundalini awakening, but eventually he has to come back home. You must have also seen that a man can go out of the house wherever he wants, but he can make real and permanent development only in his permanent home. It takes many generations of a man to make a new place a home. That’s why a famous short poem has been made, “Four children of a bird, spread their wings out of the house; From east to west they roamed, from north to south they roamed the world, saw the whole world, at last knew that home is the most beloved. The glory of the home too is unparalleled, and that of the city of Ayodhya too. That’s why the home and the groom have a lot of importance in relationships. Everyone knows that the real home is God, but the way to get there is through one’s permanent residential home, it seems. That’s why a man is taken posthumously to his permanent home. It is only to enrich his permanent home Ghazni that the jihadi invader Mahmud Ghaznavi had looted India wildly. Whatever development man does outside, it is only for his permanent home. So he does. Ghaznavi knew the importance of a permanent house, otherwise have he would not made a permanent house for himself in India? Most of the westerns also did not make permanent house for themselves in different colonized countries including India during the colonial period. The homeland or permanent home appears to be the sole root cause of most of the world’s movements, conflicts and wars. This means that a man keeps on fighting for the Kundalini only because a permanent home is dear to him because of the Kundalini present in it. A man can get enough food anywhere. But home is home. Belongingness is belongingness. It is from Kundalini that there is belongingness. This means that wherever a person may be while doing Kundalini Sadhana, he gets the same happiness as his permanent home, even more than that, if Kundalini Yoga Sadhana is done with sincerity and hard work. This also means that Kundalini Yoga can put an end to most of the world’s conflicts and wars by eliminating home sickness, and creating an atmosphere of real and lasting peace in the world, which is desperately needed today. Working hard in his permanent home after Kundalini awakening by a common man is depicted as handling the administration of Ayodhya city by the King Rama in the best way. It is a different matter that after Kundalini awakening, the materiality brought in practice is used with enlightenment, therefore it’s not too harmful. It is from this worldliness that awakened Kundalini leads to liberating self-realization, while achieving stability and eternity. I think nothing happens with a mere glimpse of Kundalini awakening, especially if it is not carried forward in the right direction. I want to make it clear that I am not saying that incidents described in Ramayana never happened, or that Ramayana is fictional. Ramayana can be real, can also be metaphorical, and can be in both the forms simultaneously. It depends on faith and belief. Ramayana teaches us in every way. It’s as if accept, the whole world is imaginary, if not, then nothing is imaginary, there is no discrimination against anyone or anything.

Kundalini is also a ghost~ a holy ghost

Friends, in the previous post I was telling what are bhoot or ghosts. Some people questioned why in English it is translated into the word ghost, ghost has no spiritual significance. I said it was translated by Google, I didn’t. Actually, we are more involved in words, try less to understand the basic feeling. This is a psychological weakness. But they are also right. The actual literal meaning which is derived from the word bhoot (in hindi) can not be derived from the word ghost. The ghost is the mind. It frightens the man, so that the man walks on the straight path. The different forms of the wandering minds are different types of ghosts. Some have eyes on their stomach, some have innumerable arms, some have innumerable legs, etc. Sea creatures are also of such diverse and amazing forms. There is a wandering mind in those too. Their same strange mind is a strange kind of ghost, which is able to choose only a strange body to live in. The mind does not die even after the body dies. Like the soul, the mind is also immortal. The mind cannot die, it can only merge with the soul. When the body is not there, the mind takes the form of a strange darkness. It is thick and shiny like black Kajal or mascara. In it all information of creature from its beginning is recorded in the form of psychological code. They are so obvious that if one sees the ghost of a person he knows, he immediately recognizes that it is his ghost. Even those personal informations of the living entity are more clear and visible in his ghost than in his body of his own living time in past. Actually the ghost feels like a fully exposed person in the mind. The brain gets inspired by it and makes a picture according to the form of the ghost. Brain tricks are amazing, you know very well. It seems to us that it is visible with the eyes, but it happens in the mind only. Man understands that ghosts are formed only after death. Actually a living being or a man is also a ghost. The literal meaning of ghost or bhoot is “born matter” (bhav-being, kta pratyay- in past). Neither God is born, nor is nature. Both are eternal and infinite. Only the soul is born from the Supreme Soul, and also merges in Him. It wasn’t even born. Actually it is like his shadow. The shadow is only felt. Shadow does not exist. So is the ghost. Therefore the soul is a ghost. Only a dead ghost is scary to people, because it does not have a body. Now if anyone sees a fire without wood in the sky, he will be afraid of what happened.

Some fanaticism is also necessary for religion

Then I was also saying that while extreme fanaticism is harmful, a little bigotry or a little stubbornness is also necessary for religion. If you do not persist in doing Kundalini yoga regularly, then you will not be able to do it. Sometimes you will make an excuse that you did not do it that day because you went to the wedding or procession on that day. If you were a fanatic, you would definitely do Kundalini yoga after finding solitude for a while. Sometimes you will pretend that I went to the city that day where there was a shortage of space. If you were a fanatic, you would have done it on a chair too. Sometimes you will make an excuse that that day you reached home late at night, so you could not do yoga. But if you were stubborn, you would have done it for a short time, but definitely did it. Sometimes you will pretend that you had dinner that day or that you were ill. But you could also do light asanas and light pranayama. Also, by doing Kundalini yoga even in the midst of problems, the Kundalini benefits increase manifold. In this way, if there is no positive bigotry, then the excuses do not end, due to which the person cannot stick to the practice.

If worship was everything, then sad things would not have happened to the worshipers

Worship is a means, not an end. The goal is Advaita. That is God. Worship increases Bhakti, and Bhakti leads to Advaita. Kundalini definitely resides with Advaita. It is known to all that Kundalini always does good things. By the way, most of the contribution of Advaita is there, which is born from Kundalini. From Advaita to Kundalini, and from Kundalini to Advaita, these two continue to enhance each other. Due to Advaita man remains balanced and full of energy, due to this the intellect works well. Advaita controls the noise of thoughts, so that there is no wastage of energy. Once I went to the house of a small acquaintance on a business call from him. A member of the household who seemed like a friend to me took me with himself. There I talked to his young brother when he greeted me. I saw a strange look on his face. His name was also associated with the name of Shiva. So I inadvertently compared him to Shiva with joy and smile. In fact, his nature was also the same more or less. He also smiled at this, and so did the other family members. He was an attractive, shy, loving and hardworking boy of his parents. After a day or two, he along with a friend of his school time went for a tour somewhere full of enthusiasm on his brand new bike he had bought. Probably his friend was just learning to ride a bike. On the way, they stopped to visit the temple of a famous Shiva and a local deity. Probably the main purpose of stopping there was getting the new bike worshiped. When they went to roam the city from there, they collided with the back of a tractor trolley on the way. The rider survived, but the young man sitting behind died on the spot. It also shows that children should get good training in two wheelers like cycles etc. at an early age. The common man thinks that the child will grow up and learn on his own, but sometimes it is too late. I have also seen such incidents in some other teenagers who are two Wheeler stealthy or learning. Maybe my subconscious mind was influenced by the ghosts of Shiva, due to which the words of Shiva came out of my mouth. It may also be that my subconscious mind has foreseen the event by powerful non-dual practice. However, at that time I did not do any special and regular yoga practice. My way of working was such that it used to produce effect of practice itself. A detailed description of that method is found in the book “Sharir Vigyan Darshan~ ek adhunik Kundalini Tantra”. The family members wondered how the big accident happened even after Shivnam’s support was there. Even if it had happened, life would have been saved. Then they would be satisfied assuming that he would have got liberation through Shivanaam. Now who knows what would have happened, but it is certain that worship cannot fill carelessness. Physical deficiency can be fulfilled by physical means only. Worship gives support, but it also has its limits. The mind may feel that all is well, but there is a difference between feeling and being. Feel good and being good. Although both are linked, but up to a certain limit. His family members also said that he used to talk strange including his going out of the world on few instances for some time. It would have been like that. His father, who was often ill, also passed away after a few days in the grief of his son. Whatever happened, my friendship with his little bit maddened brother almost ended. Little disturbed he used to appear earlier also, but not that much. Many times he used to think that his brother might have been made a scapegoat by some black tantra in the temple. What does the sad mind not think? I too felt shock and for some time I also had to take depression pills, also having few other reasons to do so, although my self-created Advaita philosophy and my habit of working according to it soon took over. I realized that even depression medicines cause Advaita, albeit by coercion and with some poor quality and loss of memory and work efficiency. In addition, it also harms the body and mind. When depression is basically removed with non-dualism, then why not take the help of Kundalini, why make a habit of physical medicines. I have also seen co-businessmen who are addicted to these drugs. They seem little bit like patients, especially mental patients. God bless, such accidents should not happen to anyone.

Depression is the younger brother of the ghost, which Kundalini can best drive away

Although everything except God is a ghost, but in public practice only the bodyless soul is considered to be a ghost. The state of depression is also similar to the state of bodylessness or death. In this, the experience of various pleasures of the body decreases. Probably this is the main reason why depressed person has more tendency to commit suicide. Kundalini yoga can play the role of a lifesaver in depression. Actually antidepressants also appear curing depression through kundalini principle. It should be scientifically researched to convince the world. I think these can be used for a short time under the supervision of a specialist doctor for preliminary exploration of Kundalini. I also feel that cannabis also does the same thing, that is why Yogi sages used to consume them properly in a controlled way. Kundalini is the source or basis of all the pleasures of the body. This leads to the formation of chemicals in the brain that are formed while experiencing material pleasures. We can experience material pleasures only in the form of the mind, not directly. Kundalini is a cultured and refined mind of a higher order. With this, even without material things, there is happiness like material happiness. Simply means that Kundalini is the unique way to bypass material facilities for material pleasures. I have received this Kundalini benefit not once but many times. Everyone gets it, but they don’t go deep into it. India was once a country dominated by Kundalini Yoga, only that’s why it was then most developed without materialism.

The most practical way of Advaita is to always consider yourself to be part of the whole

Some call him supreme soul, some God, some saviour and some others. But in practicality, it is considered as a whole by very few people. Many believe, albeit from the outside, because if a hungry or helpless dog comes in front of them, they can abuse it, or can hit it with a stick. Then how can the meditation or worship of the whole be done, when one part of it is hated? That’s why the best way is that no matter what the situation is, always consider yourself to be a part of the whole. That whole, in which there is everything, from which nothing is different. There is no need to meditate, it is enough to believe. You have to concentrate on your work. If the focus is on the whole, then how will the work be done? Do not reject any circumstance, dark or light or anything, because nothing is separate from Him by everything being part of a whole. By maintaining such belief, Kundalini will also remain in the mind, and moving around keeping the whole body healthy. Although maintaining this belief directly round the clock appears neither practical nor easy, therefore a tactical non dual philosophy and kundalini yoga must be adopted to get this indirectly. The book “Sharir Vigyan Darshan~ A Modern Kundalini Tantra” having this type of practical and tactical nondual philosophy helped me a lot in maintaining this belief.

Kundalini is also a ghost, the holy ghost

When mind is a ghost, then Kundalini also proved to be a ghost, because Kundalini is also a higher level of mind. The common ghost also does not have a physical existence, and the Kundalini also doesn’t have a physical existence. Common ghosts are the pure products of the mind, and Kundalini is also the same. But kundalini is different from the common ghost only in single aspect. Where ordinary ghosts take one away from the Supreme Soul, the Kundalini-ghost leads to the divine. Does the Holy Ghost described in Christianity mean Kundalini? I leave that decision up to you.

Kundalini is enhanced with Brahmamuhurta resulting in destruction of ghosts

Happy Guru Nanak Day birthday to all my friends

Moon of Kalratri (dark night) Guru Nanak Dev

Friends, on the occasion of this year’s Guru Nanak Day, I got a chance to go to my Sikh brother cum neighbor’s home place for Prabhat-Feri Katha or morning spiritual touring story. As invited with great love and respect, therefore, with the inspiration of Kundalini, my eyes were opened before four o’clock in the morning. As soon as I got ready and reached the spiritual story session with my wife, so did the Granth Sahib arrived from Gurdwara Sahib. It was as if I had received a special invitation to serve. It was a very emotional and exciting scene. Shabd Kirtan was held from 4.30 am to 5.30 am with melodious music. I liked it. This time was in the middle of the time of Brahmamuhurta, which lasts from about 4 am to 6 pm. It was as if we were doing kirtan all night. This is because of the high spiritual energy of the Brahmamuhurta. That is why this time has been fixed above all for spiritual practice. In Brahmamuhurta, spiritual practice brings Kundalini closer to the zenith. I felt the same way. Light refreshments were also served at the end of Katha-Kirtan. Man learns something every moment. Sikh itself means learning. This proves that this religion is cutting-edge and scientific as well, because nowadays it is the era of learning. Similarly, there is a great importance of service in this religion. Today’s era of consumerism, commercialism and competition is the era of public service. Self-protection is at the core of this religion. This sentiment is also very relevant nowadays, because lies, deceit, and tyranny prevail everywhere. I had heard a lot about Brahmamuhurta, but had not experienced it well myself. The reason people don’t know about its power is because they don’t do spiritual practice in a proper way. Power does not have intelligence. Wisdom is possessed by the soul or Vivek or part of soul differentiating bad from good. If there is guidance of wisdom-intellect to power, then only it does self-welfare, otherwise destruction is also possible through it. For example, Pakistan can be viewed. According to sources, the Pakistani army kills innocent and unarmed people. Many times, this country seems less as a country, and more like a propaganda machine. If the monkey gets a razor, then the result can be anything. Power is a push. If there is already garbage in the mind, then energy will push it, which will spread it further. By this a person will refrain from even waking up in Brahmamuhurta. If there is Kundalini in the mind, then only Kundalini will get the push for development. I have been related to a Hindu family since birth. My grandfather was an eminent Hindu priest. I had worked with him as a disciple for many years. It seems that he had unknowingly become my guru. I found Hinduism and Sikhism to be the same. In both, Dharmadhwaj or religion flag, Granth and Guru are worshiped or respected equally. Actually, all religions are same from inside, some people differentiate these from outside. According to Tantra, Kundalini is the Guru, and the Guru is the Kundalini. Yes, since Sikhism is associated with spiritual warriors, it is natural to have a little more briefness, practicality and fanaticism than traditional Hinduism. But that too is negligible in front of certain religions. Although Sikhism is built on the defensive side, not the aggressive side. If there has ever been an offensive mode, then it has happened only for the defense of itself and Hinduism, otherwise not. I am not taking side of any particular religion here. We respect all religions. I am just clarifying the human truth. With thoughtful analysis and writing, the truth becomes more clear. Some bigotry is there in all religions. Some positive fanaticism is also necessary for religion, but it is much better if it remains within the realm of humanity and socialism, for which Sikhism is often known and accepted. In the Middle Ages, when the Indian subcontinent was in darkness due to jihadi invaders, Guru Nanak Dev emerged like a full moon by the inspiration of God, which transformed the dreadful darkness into pleasant moonlight.

Lord Shiva shines like a full moon in the middle of a night full of ghosts

In a religious ceremony, along with the luminous God, his shadow may also appear dark. Because light and darkness coexist. Darkness should be respected as the ghost of Shiva, because it came with Shiva. There is night with the moon. Don’t be afraid of him. This creates a powerful Advaita, which helps in awakening the Kundalini. Actually these ghosts are responsible for religious animosity, not Shiva. You must have also seen or heard that after becoming very religious, a person became strange. Sometimes a man does wrong things too. I have a relative. He used to have frequent religious discussions with a friend from his village. Seeing them both gathered, the women of the village started talking to each other while making fun of them saying “look, friends, now the discourse of Shrimad Bhagwat Purana is about to begin”. After some time that friend of my relative suddenly committed suicide, which surprised everyone, as he did not show any signs of depression. Too much is forbidden everywhere.  Maybe superficial religiosity acted as a veil, covering up his depression. That imperfect righteousness caused a fake smile on his face. Maybe if he didn’t wear the cloak of unfulfilled spirituality, people would have known the problem responsible for his inner depression, and would have made him aware of it and suggested a solution. Therefore, he would not have taken a fatal step. That’s why it has been said that little knowledge is a dangerous thing. On the contrary, if he had embraced spirituality to the fullest, his depression would have vanished, along with he would have attained Kundalini awakening. The zenith and perfection of righteousness or spirituality lies in Tantric Kundalini Yoga only. Tantric Kundalini Yoga is just a name or symbol or method of a psychological fact. There may be other names, symbols or methods to bring this spiritual and psychological principle to the ground. Why only Hindu, there can be other religions also. It is so, but we do not understand it, do not recognize it. When all religions and life practices would be studied seriously and scientifically, then only the complete picture will be known. Therefore, till the time it is not known, Kundalini Yoga of Hinduism should work. We need pure water to drink, wherever it comes from, or whatever its name is. Tantra had found some solution for this lack of spirituality. It accepted Bhuta Bali as a part of Panchamakara. It is to be noted that there are Panchakakara in Sikhism. These are the five things whose names begin with the letter K, and which a Sikh must carry with him at all times. These are the five thingsKesh or hair, kada or wrist ring, kangha or comb, kachchha or briefs and kataar or dagger. From this it seems that the leftist system was dominated at that time, due to which Panchakakaras came in existence as partial copy of tantric Panchamakaras. Bhutbali, means sacrifice for the ghost. By this the ghosts are satisfied and calm down. Once I got a chance to live in the high Himalayan regions for some time. There, when the deity is called from house to house, animal sacrifices are also offered to him. When asked, the local people told that the sacrifice is not for the deity, but for the attendants of the deity like ministerial staff etc. who came with him. The diet of the deity is sattvik. So those attendants were in a way only Shivaganas or ghosts, and the deities became Shiva. Even today, on the same lines, many smart people get a lot of work done by pleasing the clerical staff of the office, the officers just keep looking. In fact, sacrifices are a storehouse of energy. It also has tamoguna or darkness in it. Due to the entry of energy and tamo guna into the body, the excess satoguna becomes balanced, and a non-duality prevails in the mind. Balance is essential. Although this balancing work gets spoiled due to excessive energy and tamo guna. The body also needs a lot of energy to hold the Advaita spirit. Due to the creation of non-dual spirit, satoguna starts increasing again. To create Satoguna with the help of Tamoguna, this is probably the only divine formula of leftist Shaivas and Tantriks. The Muladhara chakra symbolizes the Tama guna, and the Sahasrara chakra symbolizes the Satoguna. First, the Kundalini is allowed to come to the base through the Tama guna. Then it is raised directly to Sahasrara by Tantric Kundalini Yoga. From that, satoguna increases immediately, though with balance or non-duality. One of the countless benefits of keeping Kundalini in mind with Kundalini Yoga is the benefit of balance of gunas or qualities. Because Kundalini keeps the balance of all the three gunas by moving like a bead of a rosary throughout the body. The whole game is about energy or power. That’s why it is said that Shiva is attained only through Shakti. By the way, there are many other sattvik methods of achieving energy and quality-balance or non-duality, which are described in the countless scriptures. One such modern book is “Sharir Vigyan Darshan~A Modern Kundalini Tantra”. Ghosts become strong and trouble when Shiva is not meditated or worshiped properly. When Advaita Bhava is attached to it, then they calm down and disappear. In fact, they do not disappear but get absorbed in the luminous Shiva. They are false like a shadow. They don’t have real existence. They are illusionary. This means that ghosts teach non-dualism. That’s why they are followers of Shiva, because they want to make everyone non-dual like their lord Shiva. They do not like anything except their lord Shiva. In Shiv Purana, this metaphor has been presented with great amusement through stories. These ghosts are called Wrathful deity in Buddhism, who disturb the seeker during the course of meditation. They are depicted as scary figures.

Kundalini-Shiva marriage is the origin of ordinary worldly marriage

Friends, Happy Chhath festival to all of you. I was mentioning in a recent blog article that the spiritual culture of Hindu festivals is the worship of nature, and is against environmental pollution. According to sources, just 2-3 days ago when some women stood in the middle of the waters of Yamuna river in Delhi to offer arghya or holy water to the sun god to worship the sixth goddess or goddess chhathi, the world came to know about the real pollution of Yamuna. The waters of the Yamuna were black, and there was so much white foam floating on it that they looked like mountains of ice floating in the middle of the polar sea. Needless to say that now the efforts to clean Yamuna have started in full swing. But in order to get this done, the work of whistleblower was unknowingly done by those Hindu traditionalist women who risked their lives to enter the poisonous river to honor and worship nature. Some so-called modern people may call them orthodox and superstitious, but they have done what the great modernists and rationalists seldom dare. This is a small example. There seems to be inferior look towards nature loving Hinduism, that is why nature seems to be going towards destruction. I am not taking the side of any particular religion here, nor I’m opposing any tradition, but I am describing and analyzing the true incident which has happened.

King Himachal is the symbol of the mind and his kingdom the body

It is told in the Shiv Purana that King Himachal invited all his relative-mountains and rivers for the marriage festival of Shiva-parvati. He stored different types of food. There was decoration all around. He distributed many amenities to all the people of his state. The people of his entire kingdom were pleased with him. The chief sages were sent to Kailash to meet Shiva with an invitation for marriage. Actually, King Himachal and his palace are the brain. Kailash is the Sahasrara Chakra. The land or earth itself is the kingdom of King Himachal. It is the whole body. Anyway, the mountain is called Bhubhrit. It means the one who maintains or supports or nourishes the earth. The mind or brain sustains the body. King Himachal calls all the rivers his palace, meaning the brain attracts the energy of all the nadis or channels of the body towards itself. He also invites all the mountains, that is, the main center of the brain expresses the supreme sensation of Kundalini awakening by gathering sensation-force from all other smaller centres of the brain. This is the marriage of Shiva, and this is what is said to be the joining of various mountains in the marriage of Shiva. Parvatraj Himachal stores various food grains, meaning the brain draws all the energy of the body towards itself. Food is energy, energy is food. Food is eaten only to get life energy. That’s why it is said that food is life or prana. The people of the entire state of Himachal are filled with joy and happiness, which means that when the brain is full of energy, then such chemicals are released from it, which benefit the whole body. Such equivalence between the body and the universe is best depicted in the book Physiology Philosophy or Sharirvigyan darshan. On the day of Shiva marriage, all the people of the state join the abode of various pleasures, and enjoy various luxuries to the fullest. This means that the blood circulation throughout the body increases on the day of Kundalini awakening. What was the need of the sages to write in such detail a simple marriage like a common man, because they themselves were celibate or unmarried and many used to do penance in the forests while staying away from the household. Kundalini has parents, but Shiva doesn’t have. Shiva is self born, that’s why called as Shambhu. It is evident from this that it’s not an ordinary worldly marriage. Kundalini awakening has been described as Shiva marriage, so that even the common people bound in the household can understand it and get its benefit easily.

The highest palace of the state of Himachal is Sahasrar, where only the married couple of Shiva-Shakti can reside permanently

As above, the Saptarishis or seven great sages were sent to Kailash along with marriage invitation letter to Shiva. Kailash is the Sahasrara Chakra. There is the abode of Shiva in the form of non-dualism. In fact, after the prana rising, the energy-river of the body flows only towards Sahasrar. It is natural that with the power of that energy, beautiful pictures keep up appearing in the Sahasrar region with non-duality and joy. It is also natural that most of those pictures are also made of those people or things with which Advaita Bhava or spiritual spirit is associated. This is because a person wants to go to the same area which is favorable to him or is similar to him. Who can be more non-dual or spiritual than the seven great sages. That is why those spiritual objects or persons are shown as Saptarishis. Well it can be any spiritual object like Guru, temple priest, temple, cow, Ganga etc. These things go close to Shiva, and also inspire him to become one with Kundalini, but these are not able to become one with Shiva themselves. This is shown by Shiva purana as an invitation to Shiva for his marriage. Whom to marry, Kundalini. Due to not being able to unite with Shiva, these are shown coming back after giving invitation. No one can stay for long in Sahasrara without complete Union with Shiva. Spiritual images visiting for few moments in Sahasrara have to come back to general lower areas of brain. Kundalini is able to remain continuously with Shiva in Kailash as a result of being one with Shiva or being awakened. Meaning that after Kundalini awakening, the experience of Kundalini connected with one’s soul continues throughout his life in the Sahasrara Chakra. This is the main quality of Kundalini awakening that leads a man to salvation.

It is Pran who creates the marriage of Shiva-Shakti in Sahasrar

Then it comes that Vishwakarma made wonderful and divine marriage pavilions, buildings and courtyards for the marriage ceremony of Shiva. Inertial sculptures looked like living things, and living things looked like sculptures. There was a feeling of land in the water and of the water in the land. Actually, due to the existence of profound prana in Sahasrara around Kundalini awakening, everything seems wonderful and divine. There is a state of great joy. There is peace all around. Advaita Bhava is near the peak, and reaches its peak during Kundalini awakening. Everything seems the same. The distinction ends. It is not a stupor like intoxication, but full of supreme consciousness and bliss. This spiritual sentiment is depicted here in the form of the above interesting story. Water to land or land to water, means the end to experience of distinction between water and land. The appearance of the nonliving as the living and the living being seen as the nonliving, means there should be a similarity between the nonliving and the living. Everywhere was thoroughly cleaned and well swept. This means that real and complete purity is experienced in Sahasrar itself. Clean as much as you want from outside, if there is no prana life in Sahasrar, then everything looks dirty. For this reason, spiritual places smeared with cow dung feel very sacred, because the Sahasrar Chakra is filled with prana life due to the influence of spirituality. Even the neat cleanliness of the costly buildings, where there is a lot of fighting and quarrels, is not liked, and there is a suffocation. On the contrary, a hut of grass that is covered with cow dung and occupied by a spiritual sage also looks very attractive and blissful.

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.
