By the yoga
practices described previously the Sadhaka attains results according to
his sanskaras. The complete grace of the Master helps the Sadhaka attain
God or by following the instructions of the Master he can enter the realms
of Kundalini-Yoga. In this yoga many other practices of Yoga are also
included, e.g. practices of pranayam, nectar drinking, hearing the Anhad
sound and activation of Tatwas etc. The practices of Kundalini yoga are
not done for a long time, therefore it is necessary to take the help of
pure yoga practices so that the sadhaka may spend his daily life in a
normal way. (The practices of samadhi are complementary to it).
The ancient Indian philosophy postulates that the universe is made up
of five basic elements. The human body is also therefore made up of different
particles of the five Tatwas. The earth element is of utmost importance
because every manifest object is born out through the Earth particles.
The mother Kundalini also arises from the particles of the earth. The
particles of the element Earth and pranas collide with each other in Mooladhara.
The form of light which becomes visible, is broad infront and thin behind.
This form so developed is called Kundalini because it generates light
in the different spheres of the body. This light has got atoms, momentum
and generally it travels from below upwards. The intensity of light is
increased by the collision of the particles of Tatwas. This whole practice
is called Kindalini Yoga. Complete light can easily be obtained by the
practice of Kundalini yoga because sadhaka can generate light, can control
it, and is also capable of momentum. The different forms of Kundalini
are hidden in the particles of the Tatwas (seed alphabets etc.) just as
butter is hidden in the milk. By practice Kundalini exhibits its own form
gradually. One needs many years for its complete development. The sadhaka
should remember that the origin of kundalini, its development, its completion
and perfection depends on the particles of the five tatwas which are made
to collide with each other. These tatwas are in fact called seeds because
the origin and degeneration of each object depends upon these tatwas.
The light of kundalini moves from one place and stops at other place.
These resting places of light are called Chakras. From these chakras the
mother kundalini gathers light energy. On complete development it generates
power in the whole body. The energy here has different attributes. Each
attribute is of the form of a seed alphabet. In this way the mother kundalini
bears the energy of 50 seed alphabets. These 50 letters become 1000 because
of the ascending and descending orders and one hood of the mother kundalini
becomes converted into the thousand petalled one. This thousand petalled
lotus provides extreme of peace to the sadhaka. Mother Kundalini does
practices with the subtle body up to the thousand petalled lotus and after
this the mother moves about freely and provides directions to the subtle
body and inspires the sadhaka for the attainment of God. It is proved
by the fact that the mother Kundalini repeatedly clarifies the Brahma
Randhra. The mother kundalini moves from below upwards. Pranas are also
directed from below upwards along with the mother so that they may gradually
recognize the path upto Brahma Randhra. The basic differene between the
pure yoga practices and the Kundalini yoga is that the mother herself
carries the sadhaka to the ultimate goal, therefore there is never any
illusion about it while in Yoga practices it is not so. Therefore the
practices of Kundalini yoga are better and more powerful. One should practice
them in the presence of the Master.

yoga practices (1) Practices for activating the kundalini always in the

about the preliminary Yoga Practices :

with the knowledge and practice of some processes of yoga otherwise Kundalini
yoga will only be an imaginative process. Therefore pure yoga practices
