In all countries
kundalini yoga is widely practiced. There are few persons who can explain
or can practice kundalin yoga in its real sequence. There are many methods
of awakening kundalini. I can explain method of awakening the kundalini
by the grace of GURUDEV BHAIRAVA.
SHAKTIPAT is a word used by many individuals by which the kundalini
is awakened. I also agree with it. Here question arises what is SHAKTIPAT?
I can say that when the GURUDEV feels that this particular person is
fit to get the knowledge of kundalini yoga then HE decides to descend
HIS force in the body of SADHAK or of the student. The process of entering
of force in to the body of the SADHAK for the purpose of kundalini yoga
is known as SHAKTIPAT. It is highest and purest form of DEEKSHA or help
to a student by GURUDEV.
After this process of SHAKTIPAT one feels energetic and confident of
achieving his goal. Light generating points of our body are enlightened
and few of them or all are visualized clearly after this event. It is
a rare event in our life. This process of SHAKTIPAT can be done by GURUDEV
to a single person at a time. In his life time a guru can give DEEKSHA
to few persons because it requires energy. Such energy is usually not
available in human beings. An individual gets power from the guru of
caliber like BHAIRAVA or from human guru which depend upon the SAMSKARS
of the student.
To achieve his goal of awakening kundalini the student does many exercises(KRIYAS).
The details of these KRIYAS are available in many books. I would like
to suggest the student to read BEEJ YOGA also for a comparative purpose
or for the purpose of helping the student. It describes all the minute
details of this yoga with its sequence. For the purpose of understanding
we can divide this sequence in to seven steps as follows.
Awakening of kundalini is the FIRST STEP. Kundalini then enters
in the BRAHMA NADI. Entering of kundalini in to the BRAHMA NADI along
with individual pran requires great skill and grace of the master failing
which one can get serious illness or may die.
SECOND STEP is to identify the kundalini in its real and detailed
form. It means the full visualization of kundalini the tongue, body,
tail etc. Because without this knowledge you can not be sure that with
whom you are doing your kriya or playing this yogi game.
In its THIRD STEP kundalini is changed in to KALI. If you have
seen kundalini in its true form than you can understand that kundalini
and Kali are same. How?
The tongue of KALI is red colored and is out of mouth like that of kundalini.
The tongue of kundalini is divided in two branches and thereafter one
in three parts and second in four parts (total 7 like that of Agni tongue
or jibhya). We must understand very clearly that kundalini yoga SADHNA
is a SAKAR SADHNA like that of other DEVI and DEVTAS.
FOURTH STEP requires understanding of differenceS in between
natural laws and laws made by the individuals. We are supposed to follow
the law of nature if we want to get something from nature otherwise
SADHAK will not be able to achieve any thing even in many births. What
are the natural and unnatural laws have been described in VEDAS, PURANS,
UPANISHADS etc. The abstracted knowledge of both the laws is must. You
can not behave as you wish if you want to have this knowledge i.e. you
should be a pious man both inside and in your behavior.
Later on in its process of piercing different chakras you have to pass
through FIFTH STEP i.e. visualizing all the chakras and resting
at SAHSHRAR with mother kundalini or SHIVA SHAKTI or KALI and SHIVA
etc. In this stage the SADHAK and the SHAKTI or SADHYA meet together.
It can be understood in this way also that the subtle body of SADHAK
is activated here and it is prepared to pierce the PIND for unification
process. Truly speaking it is the stage when this yoga begins.
SIXTH STEP is essential for the student to pierce the PIND or
SAHSHRAR or MOKSH DWAR or BRAHMA RANDHRA or black hole of this body
by which the SADHAK can complete his unification with LORD SHIVA or
PARAMATMA or in any form you want to call it. You are aware that for
piercing the earth atmosphere rocket requires extra energy. This principle
is also used here i.e. the guru provides this force here to pierce his
PIND and then to enter in universe for completion of this yoga.
Lastly we have to be very careful to identify the different objects
of this universe and then to have some kriyas. Without proper knowledge
of BHOOGOL(Geography) and KHAGOL(Astronomy) you will not be able to
get any knowledge of nature and its laws. Once you understand this matter
in detail or in short you will find yourself in the state of merger
in the DIVINE LIGHT or SAMADHI or unification with god or you may describe
it in any way you like it.
Like a deaf and dumb man a yogi can not describe his experiences in
detail. The experiences of yoga are individualized and can be compared
broadly only. It is because of different SAMSKARS of every individual.
It should be taken as the SEVENTH STEP of kundalini yoga sequence of
