Query: What is Kundalini Yoga... Awakening which Human Beings finally reached God
What is kundalini yoga... is
best answered by teachings contained in sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism... the doctrine given to mankind by
Lord Krishna in battle of Mahabharata! Kundalini yoga is the path... gaining enlightenment, the ultimate goal
of life for every human being! Indulgence in kundalini yoga was necessitated to reach God in present
In the present Kali Yuga ... dark age... metal age... dominated by a bloated ego (termed Aham
in Hinduism)... most human beings pursued material goals of life. All travelled religious path... path of rituals
that had no connection with spirituality or kundalini awakening! Travelling uncharted path of spirituality... path
of unknown is difficult... very difficult to travel but not impossible!
If spiritual stalwarts Sri
Ramakrishna Paramhansa and Maharishi Ramana can do it... so can others! Initially both Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa
and Maharishi Ramana started their pursuit of God via path of bhakti yoga... path of rituals... path of religion!
Realizing it was not possible to reach God via path of religion... path of rituals... both changed
Following teachings contained in Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa and
Maharishi Ramana finally started pursuing path of jnana yoga (path of absolute wisdom)... path of contemplation...
path of self enquiry that directly led to God Almighty! Unless we cut across shackles of karma forever... Kundalini
Shakti never reached its full potential!
For full awakening of kundalini shakti... the coiled serpentine energy that lay dormant in
base of spine... travelling spiritual path was an absolute must! Most human beings world over took the easy path of
religion... path of rituals that carried no meaning in spiritual world! God Almighty was never to be found in
temples, churches or mosques!
The abode of God Almighty... kingdom of God Almighty could only be reached via path of jnana
(path of wisdom) as detailed in sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism... foremost of all sacred scriptures existing on
mother earth! The doctrine of Bhagavad Gita was given to mankind by Lord Krishna... an avatar of his era (God
manifest in human form)!
Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism contained truth but only truth! Everything contained in Bhagavad Gita pointed towards
subtle truths of life... knowing which human beings finally gained enlightenment (kaivalya jnana) and salvation
(moksha)! The contents of Bhagavad Gita... gist of Bhagavad Gita can never be understood literally... it demands
reading in between the lines!
For understanding wisdom contained in Bhagavad Gita, God Almighty ordained a long journey of
1.1 million manifestations in human form... that entailed an earthly sojourn of 12.4 million years! Reaching end of
cosmic life... 8.4 millionth manifestation in a short time span of 70 to 80 years of human life is nothing short of
Only an ardent seeker of spirituality... one who exhibited willpower demonstrated by Swami
Vivekananda was fit to travel spiritual path... path of unknown that directly led towards God Almighty! In a world
full of glamour and sensuality... none seems to pursue spiritual path! People indulged in path of religion just to
satisfy their ego... knowing well... all was foolish jurisprudence... that led nowhere!
Might and money carried no meaning in spiritual world! In the field of pure spirituality it
was virtues that ruled the roost! By indulgence in good karma... positive karma... whatever virtues we gained in
present life... the same got transferred to next manifestation at the time of death of present body! The closing
balance of present life became opening balance for next manifestation!
In field of pure spirituality what mattered most was residual balance of positive karma... good karma indulged in
present life! Travelers of path of vice... sinners... those indulging in negative karma... bad karma all the
time... when they suffered in present life... they blamed God Almighty for their woes! How can we blame God
Almighty for the karma performed by us!
There is no dearth of foolhardy people (termed ignorants in Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism)... who
primarily relied on religious path for reaching God Almighty in present life. Dominated by a bloated ego... running
after ephemeral riches of life... such people gave more importance to fruits of karma performed... that never truly
belonged to manifest human form!
As per Bhagavad Gita... travellers of spiritual path always lived life nishkama karma way...
offering fruits of karma performed to God Almighty all the time! As stated in Bhagavad Gita... the journey of life
truly belonged to our soul atman and never the manifest human form. We as a soul atman manifested human form to
work out our karma... remove dross impurities within!
The moment complete dross impurities within soul atman removed... our kundalini shakti
reached its full potential... one finally becoming an enlightened one... a bodhi... a Mahavira... a
Kundalini yoga benefits are immense... much beyond comprehension of most human beings! For a traveler of spiritual
path... bookish knowledge carried no meaning! One only earned virtues by travelling path of jnana (wisdom)
contained in sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism! Foremost of all kundalini yoga benefits was reaching God Almighty in
On physical manifest scale... travellers of spiritual path increased body resistance to
infinity... one finally establishing absolute control over sleep! So much so that one could work 24 x 7... 365 days
continuously without having a break. A pure soul atman never indulged in ephemeral affairs of life. For a pure soul
atman... sleep, external infliction of disease carried no meaning!
The resistance of our body becoming infinite... no disease could practically affect an
enlightened one! One whose kundalini has awakened fully... the complete wisdom contained in cosmos was now at our
tips! One finally became knower of all... gained omniscience for all practical purposes!
Travelling spiritual path was a necessity for our soul atman... never the manifest human
form! Travelling spiritual path... awakening dormant Kundalini Shakti... reaching stage of enlightenment (termed
kaivalya in Hinduism)... all was ordained by God Almighty as part of cosmic system... cosmic life! Human beings had
but to follow dictates of soul atman within!
No matter how much we dissuaded self from travelling spiritual path... goal of life always remained... reaching end
of cosmic life... 8.4 millionth manifestation when human beings gained enlightenment and finally salvation
(moksha)! Travelling religious or spiritual path... was the sole prerogative of individual human being!
For how long could we delay travelling spiritual path! In the 8.4 millionth manifestation...
one finally had to undertake spiritual journey... no matter what! In our spiritual pursuit of life... we never get
an enlightened master to guide us in journey of life but, teachings of Bhagavad Gita always helped one in reaching
God Almighty in present life.
All enlightened ones never had a spiritual preceptor to guide them in journey of life! The
journey of spiritual path is always travelled all alone. If we truly desire cutting across all sufferings of
present life permanently... our indulgence in kundalini yoga was necessitated! Benefits of kundalini yoga could
never be enumerated in words. One had to travel spiritual journey... to know absolute truth!
Gems of jnana wisdom always lay hidden in various sacred scriptures of different religions of
world! By indulging in sacred texts of different religions... human beings slowly unveiled hidden cosmic truths...
knowing which human beings finally reached stage of enlightenment (kaivalya jnana) and salvation (moksha)!
Activating kundalini to its fullest potential is ultimate goal of life!
