Query: I have been doing Swami Ramdev Yoga since many months regularly. The exercises
which I do are: 1): Surya Namaskar 2): Anulom - Vilom 3) Shavasana. Anulom-Vilom pranayam has awakened my
Kundalini Energy. The first experience of Kundalini energy awakening was awesome and also very scared. What
does this mean? Was it an indication from God for
I am not exactly aware of the various terminologies of yogic exercises.
One thing is for certain... you are heavily indulging in yogic exercises which are not a prerequisite for
gaining anything in life! Even masters indulge in yogic exercises at the most one hour and half in whole
Indulgence in yogic exercises heavily would put a strain on your body...
slowly your body would be wiped clean of the vital energies of life! On the mortal front definitely... you
may sometimes find more vigor... freshness and even happiness but at times you would feel the world going
round! At no point of time Acharya Ramdev advises doing exercises for more than an hour in
We need to understand the ultimate gist of life... why do we at all need
to indulge in yogic exercises! Are yogic exercises different from yoga meditation? If we truly understand the
meaning of word yoga in Hinduism... it stands for synthesis between the two... our soul atman and God
The effort of our soul atman trying to merge with Brahman... Parmatman...
God Almighty is what yoga meditation truly means! The word yoga has been derived from the root word Yog...
which in Hindi means synthesizing! For example... two Yog two equals four! Ever since our soul atman
separated from its source... the effort remains merging with God Almighty at the earliest!
Every soul atman of its own is inert matter. It simply cannot purify
itself of its own similar as the metal within an ore cannot separate of its own. To separate the metal from
the ore we require passing it through various mining processes! On the spiritual front... every soul atman
requires to manifest bodies after another to work out its karma... remove the dross within!
Every soul atman primarily manifests a body to work out its karma...
remove the dross impurities within! For a soul atman to reach the goal of life... it becomes imperative for
the means... the human form to maintain itself fit and fine! Yogic exercises are simply a means to keep the
body fit both physically and mentally!
Aerobic exercises normally keep the body fit physically... whereas yogic
exercises keep the body fit physically and also mentally! Unless the body is healthy... traveling the
spiritual path is absolutely ruled out! Traveling the uncharted path of spirituality requires highest level
of patience, persistence and perseverance!
By indulging in heavy yogic workouts... you have activated a part of your
Kundalini Shakti! It is temporal... never permanent! As long as you continue doing yogic exercises heavily...
you would keep experiencing various forms of arousing of Kundalini Shakti!
Awakening of the Kundalini is not what you understand it to be! One whose
Kundalini has fully awakened reaches the level of Mahavira, Gautama Buddha, Jesus Christ or Prophet Mohammed!
Can you say with confidence that you have become a Mahavira, Gautama Buddha, Jesus Christ or prophet Mohammed
in present life!
You have not reached even the level of Swami Vivekananda... what to say
of reaching the level of Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa or Maharishi Ramana... the only two people who gained
enlightenment in the last about 150 years amongst 6500 million people existing on Mother Earth! Reaching the
level of Mahavira, Gautama Buddha, Jesus Christ or Prophet Mohammed is not that easy!
One whose Kundalini has fully awakened reaches the level of Nirvikalpa
Samadhi... when one can have a dialogue with God Almighty on one-to-one basis and that too permanently! You
have had no such experience... you are still in the initial stages of Kundalini awakening... it may take
years, hundreds of years, thousands of years or even millions of years before Kundalini of one fully
As ordained by God Almighty... in the human form itself we have an
earthly abode of 12.4 million years to reach the stage of Mahavira, Gautama Buddha, Jesus Christ or Prophet
Mohammed! In the human form alone we have 1.1 million manifestations... before we reach the 8.4 millionth
manifestation... the last in the cosmic life cycle!
The initial 7.3 million manifestations are spent in the insect, plant and
animal form! The journey in the human form is long! The arousal of Kundalini is slow but steady! As we cannot
pull a tree to make it grow... we also cannot indulge in heavy yogic workouts to awaken our Kundalini
The experiences in the process of awakening of the Kundalini are beset
with fears of the highest order! Facing the many hooded Cobra straight in the eye is one of the most fearsome
moment of life... something almost unbearable! I distinctly remember sleeping in the room of my parents
during the later years of Kundalini awakening!
In spite of my best efforts, I feared the many hooded Cobra that usually
took wits out of me! How many times I fell off the bed facing the many hooded Cobra... I do not remember! But
ultimately, I reached the goal of my life! My Kundalini awakened absolutely unknown to me. The times when I
faced the many hooded Cobra... I did not know what Kundalini meant!
I never in my life had heard that name! In my search of God, I never
indulged myself in the tidbits of life! I was always after the final goal of life... meeting and talk to God
in this very life! Practicing absolute celibacy for a minimum period of 12 years in continuation was my
forte. This gradually led to full awakening of the Kundalini!
In whatever stage of life you may be... you need to decide the ultimate
goal of your life! Kundalini awakening is one part of the job! The full awakening of the Kundalini is an
experience that can never be expressed in words. Having reached the Mount Everest of spiritual pursuit... I
have nowhere else to go in life further!
Reaching the stage of self realization... gaining enlightenment is
something very noble... much beyond the capture of five senses and the mind. Only when I established absolute
control over the five senses and mind... did I realize self. I burnt my karma in totality before reaching the
stage of self realization.
My advice to you is... heavy indulgence in yogic exercises must be
avoided at all costs! Our goal of life is not maintaining our body alone... our body is simply a means to an
end... a sojourn for our soul atman within! Our primary goal of life is indulging in yoga meditation... the
true essence of life!
Kundalini awakening is the path... not an end in itself! Concentrate more
on the goal of life! Simply as manmade fragrance can never make the Rose smell... heavy indulgence in yogic
exercises can partially awaken the Kundalini... but never fully!

Full text of query: I would like to share my personal experience
with you. I am a big fan of Swami Ramdev Baba, I have been doing Swami Ramdev Yoga
since many months regularly. The exercises which I do are: 1): Surya Namaskar 2): Anulom - Vilom 3)
Anulom-Vilom pranayam has awakened my Kundalini Energy. This is the major
turning point in my life, which I have never expected in my life. The first experience of Kundalini energy
awakening was awesome and also very scared. What does this mean? Was it an indication from God for something?
