centre which bestows success in Kundalini yoga is Mooladhar. It is because
of its importance that it is termed Mool Adhara (Main + base). It is of
great importance because the mother Kundalini arouses. Sleeps, gets awakend,
and finally rests in this very centre. The extensive knowledge of chakra
can only be obtained when the mother Kundalini is awakened because the fire
flames leaping out of the mother's mouth destroy many obstructions. All
the natural coverings disappear and the pure form becomes visible.
When the Practices are done to activate the mother Kundalini then the Sadhaka's
main aim is only to awaken it. After this the Sadhaka waits to obtain greater
knowledge of this chakra for arousing the mother kundalini it is essential
to visualise many divine powers who are poised here performing many duties.
The knowledge of Mooladhara should be obtained in the following order so
that no obstruction may develop in future :
1. Recognition of the site.
2. Recognition of Mother Kundalini.
3. The awakening of Kundalini.
4. The knowledge of different divine powers working in the centre.
5. The place of sun, moon and fire.
6. The vehicle of Mooladhara.
7. The position of different Nadies.
8. The activity and function Apana, Udana and Prana.
9. The process of arousing the Mother kundalini.
10. The attainment of different qualities after the practical visualization
of the centre.
The position of Mooladhara in the body, recognition of the Kundalini and
the process of its awakening has already been described. The other description
is as given below :-
+ Udan + Prana particles collide with the particles of the earth tatwa and
the friction gives rise to the vision of an elephant. By the pressure of
the heel the Apana is directed to Mool adhara and by pressure from above
the navel prana and Udana are directed to Mooladhara. These three pranas
under go friction with a great speed. This generates different sounds and
light particles. The friction between the particles of the Earth Tatwa and
the particles of different Prana results in many divine powers revealing
themselves. This visualization is natural because of the friction. The scenes
drawn in the above figures will be visible.
i) The elephant is such an animal who can tolerate the maximum amount
of the air pressure. It can awaken any sleeping power. By controlling
one's own Prana one can attain power equivalent to the Airvata elephant,
situated just under the seed of the Mother Kundalini.
ii) The creation of Brahma would be almost impossible without earth. Every
being, Deva, Goddesses or other kinds of creation are only possible on
earth. Their gross form can only be created when the earth tatwa is included.
iii) The sadhaka may not get confused and many perfections and miraculous
power may not distract, the sadhaka from the mother Kundalini therefore
it is essential to obtain the grace of Lord Ganesh, who is the important
God on the earth.
iv) The mother KAKINI gives instructions to the mother Kundalini. Its
white and black faces keep on giving orders to kundalini whose arousing
without the grace of mother Kakini is impossible.
v) The light of the sun, moon and fire unite together to clarify all the
divine powers. Where ever their lights meet each other a line is formed
and these lines finally take the shape of the triangle. While practicing
the arousing procedure of Kundalini the sun point is placed in the mouth
of the kundalini so that the path to be traversed may be lighted.
vi) The four seed alphabets vam, shm, sham, and sam represent varuna,
Shiva, Shanti, (Peace) and sun. Their sounds vam, avam, vam, or sham,
sham, sham originate from the friction between the various pranas and
the earth tatwa. The mother kakini pronounces sham, sham, sham, and orders
the mother Kundalini to proceed further.
vii) The governing deity of earth is the mother Peetambara. Brahma utilizes
the power of Peetambara in the creation of different colours, forms and
humours. Because of the relation between earth tatwa and kundalini, the
mother Peetambra is worshipped in Mooladhara chakra.
viii) The effulgent mother has taken the shape of fire in the mouth of
the mother kundalini. In many brahmandas the form of fire belongs to her.
The effulgent mother fire is called the mother of Kundalini because it
bestows the mother Kundalini the form of fire.
ix) The mother Gayatri is responsible for all creation (all objects, Divine
powers, living beings). Divine power is worshipped in Mooladhara. The
pure order of worship in Mooladhara is as follows : First of all - The
worship of the Master - mother Gayatri, Mother Peetambara - effulgent
fire mother and then mother Kundalini.
this only the sadhaka should awaken the mother Kundalini from its repose
state. It is absolutely essential to pursue the above order for arousing
the mother Kundalini.

First acquaint yourself with Mooladhara and then perform practices. If
- some differences are experienced as compared to the known knowledge,
report them to the Master. The practice is to be repeated many times.
i) Sit in the posture of adepts and throw out the apana and fill in fresh
air by Pranayam. Now sit calmly and try to visuilize in the Mooladhara
with the help of inner vision.
ii) Activate all the tatwas and do the japa of Lam, Bam, Ram, Yam, Ham
21times. Pay repeated obeisance to Airavat elephant, Lord Ganesha, Brahma,
Sun. Moon and Fire.
iii) Remember the Master and contemplate on the mother Peetambara sitting
under the feet of mother Gayatri. Involve the effulgent mother fire and
concentrate close to the tail of the mother Kundalini.
iv) Give tankore with mental Yoga on the tail only once.
v) As soon as tankore is given the Mother stands up and the mouth opens.
Quickly attempt to put the sun dot into the open mouth. This sun spot
is situated towards the Rightg side of the mouth and is mobile -
vi) As soon as the sun spot is kept in the mouth the light of the kundalini
increase. Now the mother is ready to move.
vii) Take her up reciting AUM. It is necessary to halt at each chakra
so that the Kundalini can burn away the covering of impurities.
Repeat this procedure many times and correct your possible mistakes. After
many mothers of this practice of kundalini arousing the Mooladhara will
become clearly visible along with many colours. The path of the mother
Kundalini becomes clear for movement and sushumna becomes visible along
with it's internal nadi the Brahma Nadi.
Practice for visualizing the seed alphabets :
In Mooladhara the seed alphabets Vam, Sham, Sham and Sam are situated
on the petals. They automatically become visible when prana flows through
the related nadies. Therefore it is necessary to work very hard so that
the Prana may flow in these nadies. Tankore with mental yoga along with
stabilization of the modifications of the Manas and the practice of viewing
the centre of the eyebrows should be done. In the beginning the letters
appear dim, the letters manifest in pale, green or white colour. When
the lotus is visible along with ;the chakars, and seeds then only one
should understand that there is the complete flow of pure Pranas.
i) In Mooladhara
all the four seed alphabets are situated in four cardinal directions.
Poise them in Mooladhara in that order.
ii) Practice pure pronunciation in ascending descending and ascending
iii) By pranayam master pure pranas and direct them to Mooladhara and
during the period of holding the breath, direct them on each petal and
do mental japa of the related seed alphabets.
iv) Repeat this practice seven times daily for many days. Generally in
21-31 days the seed sound becomes audible.
v) After the pranayam, awaken the kundalini by tankore on its tail As
soon as the tankore is given its mouth rises up. As soon as the mouth
rises up, place the sun spot situated on the right in Mooladhara in its
vi) Hold the mother here for sometime. This period is fixed according
the Japa of AUM. In the beginning it is for seven times. Gradually when
one gets accustomed the japa is increased to 21,51,108 and even 1008.
