Journey into Kundalini

What is Kundalini?

  • Kuṇḍalini (कुण्डलिनि) is the energy in the form of a coiled serpent remaining latent in the mūlādhārā. As the source of all energy, kuṇḍalini reveals itself when roused by yogic exercise.

    The highest energy centre or chakra is known as ‘Sahasrāra’. Through yogic exercise this kuṇḍalini-śakti is pushed up through the two main nerves, iḍa and piṅgala, so that it may reach the sahasrara or the highest chakra where it should meet its source. Then the nectar which reached the sahasrāra is consumed by the yōgic practitioner forms the final stage of this kuṇḍalini-yoga.
