Kundalini, vibrations and Self Realization

Kundalini is the power of pure desire within us, a motherly and soothing spiritual energy which lies dormant at the base of the spine in the sacrum bone (the ancient civilizations knew that in this bone resides a sacred energy.)
Kundalini is a Sanskrit word meaning either "coiled up" or "coiling like a snake." There are a number of other Westernised translations of the term, e.g. 'serpent power'.

According to tradition, Kundalini is present in an inactive coiled-up state in the root chakra, which is located by various sources as proximate to the sacrum or base of the trunk of the body. Activation of kundalini is said to be associated with the experience of somatic bio-energetic phenomena by the practitioner.


Serpent Symbolism The origins of Kundalini Yoga are shrouded in the mists of the dawn of civilization in the Indian sub-continent. The divine power, Kundalini, shines like the stem of a young lotus; like a snake, coiled round upon herself she holds her tail in her mouth and lies resting half asleep as the base of the body. Yoga Kundalini Upanishad (1.82) Kundalini Shakti, coiled and dormant 'feminine' energy, is the vast potential of psychic energy contained within us all.
It is normally symbolized as a serpent coiled into three and a half circles, with its tail in its mouth, and spiralling around the central axis (sacrum or sacred bone) at the base of the spine. The awakening of this serpent and the manifestation of its powers is a primary aim of the practice of Kundalini Yoga. We do know that the basic techniques evolved in the monasteries of India & Tibet over a period of thousands of years. There the rishis systematically tested and perfected the precise movements, postures, sounds and breathing that activate different parts of the body and brain to produce specific results. sacred energy).
The object of the practice of Kundalini Yoga is to awaken the serpent, Shakti or Sakti. When she is ready to unfold, she ascends through the spinal chakras to unite above the crown of the head with Siva, the Pure Consciousness pervading the whole universe.
 Self Realization is the awakening of the Kundalini through the central channel, piercing the seven chakras and emerging at the top of the head (fontanelle bone area) as a gentle "fountain" of coolness. The word fontanelle itself means "little fountain" which shows again the ancient knowledge about this phenomenon of Self Realization.
 Self Realization has always been the ultimate goal of all religions and spiritual traditions of the world, but was extremely difficult to attain in the past. It has now become a mass phenomenon achieved effortlessly through Kundalini Yoga, which is Yogi Nirmalendu's invaluable gift to humanity.
 There are many energies within and around our body, performing different functions. Among them the Kundalini is the most subtle, having the highest spiritual dimension. Once it is awakened it starts spontaneously looking after all the other bio-energies and brings balance in all aspects of our life and growth.
 The manifestation of the Kundalini energy is called vibrations, which is an approximate translation of the Sanskrit term Chaitanya. Chaitanya (vibrations) is the integrated force of your physiological, mental, emotional and religious Selves."
