Kundalini-lingas including the Muladhar Chakra as the best one

Friends, Shiva Purana has focused most of the attention on Lord Shiva. Lord Shiva is considered to be the Kundalini in it. Throughout this Purana, there is an abundance of Lingas. When Shiva (Kundalini) is meditated on the linga, it becomes a Shivalinga or Kundalini-linga. Shivalinga is the axis of Shiv Purana, around which the whole Purana is revolving.

The symbol associated with Kundalini is called Kundalini Linga or Shivalinga

In fact, the symbol associated with the main object is called the linga or gender of that object. For example, the symbol of masculinity associated with male is called masculine gender and the symbol of femininity associated with woman is called feminine gender. Without linga, there may be some reduction in the main object, but it is not finished. If the signs of maleness in a male are eliminated, then there may be some decrease in the masculinity of man, but the man will remain the same. According to this, the lizard’s tail can also be called the lizard’s linga. When she drops it, it may cause her some difficulty in maintaining her balance, but the lizard remains the same. Similarly, the main object in spirituality is Kundalini. Kundalini gets additional strength by connecting it with the lingam in the form of symbol of any idol etc. If that symbol or lingam is removed, then there may be some decrease in Kundalini meditation, but the Kundalini still remains in the mind.

Kundalini yoga belongs to movable lingam

Shivpuran describes many types of lingas. The chara or movable linga is of special importance to the Kundalini Yogi. In this, the fundamental sensation has been considered as lingam. Different chakras of the body are the changed places of that lingam. That sensation evolves on the lower chakras, and rotates in a circular way through all the other chakras.

Our own body as the most permanent lingam

Other types of lingas are non movable. They also include lingas made of mountain or stone. Lingas made of mountain are permanent. Lingas made of stone are temporary. Lingam made of stone is better for women. Other types of lingas are subtle lingas. Mantra lingas are the main among them. Kundalini is meditated on the mantra. ॐ OM is also a perfect type of mantra linga. Subtle lingam is better known for ascetics. Mountains are called permanent lingas because they remain the same for millions of years. According to this, our own body proves to be the most permanent lingam, because it will continue to be available to us in every birth until we get liberation. It simply means that Kundalini yoga meditation is the best meditation. In fact, the second meaning of lingam is the experience of sensation, which we get with the help of different kinds of substances and feelings. Kundalini is superimposed over the same sensation. Because we get the most intense and sweet sensation from our own body, not from outside, therefore the Lingam inside the body is the best Lingam. This principle is the basic principle of Tantra Yoga. A book titled “Physiology Philosophy – A Modern Kundalini Tantra (A Yogi’s Love Story)” written in Hindi  is shown to prove this very strongly.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

What is story of Ketki flower

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

Tantric Mystery of Shiva-Ketaki Story

Brahma and Ketki flowers symbolize tantric subject

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

Lord Narayana is the symbol of public servants and donators

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

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

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

Kundalini awakening needs Linga to be considered superior to idol as per Lord Shiva

It is to certify that we all under this website don’t endorse or oppose any religion. We only promote scientific and humane study of religion. This website is tantric in nature and should not be misunderstood or misinterpreted. Practicing its methods without proper knowledge and qualification may prove harmful for which the website doesn’t hold any responsibility.

This explains the so-called supreme tantric nature of Lord Shiva. He considers his linga as his formless form and his idol as form full form. The linga is a short form of a huge pillar that connects the dark underworlds to the superior cosmic worlds. Brahma and Vishnu could not find its beginning and ending. Similarly, linga also connects Muladhara with Sahasrara. The whole mystery of sexual tantra is hidden in this story of Shiv Purana. If a direct focus is placed on the idol of Shiva or the image of Shiva in the mind, it will not be very effective. But if the image of Shiva on the Vajra is meditated, then it will reach directly into the brain or Sahasrara, and in comparison there it will remain very effective and permanent. The image of Shiva is the symbol of Kundalini here. Anything else like pictures or sensations can be there in the form of Kundalini. By the way, Lord Shiva has asked to worship both his linga and idol together, but has considered linga as the more superior form. From this, it becomes clear that Kundalini can merely develop from various eternal religious traditions, but Tantra has to be supported for its awakening. This is because if the human form and shape of Shiva is not known, then how will one be able to meditate on it over the lingam. The human form of Shiva is known only by its idol. That is why Shivalingam is also placed with idols in most of the temples. Similarly, a real Tantric is not an opponent of Sanatan religious traditions, but a collaborator.
