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-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.
