WHAT IS THE ELIGIBILITY& METHOD OF AWAKENING KUNDALINI ?K.A.-- 14
THE ELIGIBILITY OF AWAKENING KUNDALINI;-
12 FACTS;- 1-One should become perfectly desireless and should be full of Vairagya before attempting to awaken Kundalini. It can be awakened only when a man rises above Kama, Krodha, Lobha, Moha, Mada and other impurities. Kundalini can be awakened through rising above desires of the senses. 2-Yogi, who has got a pure heart and a mind free from passions and desires will be benefited by awakening Kundalini. If a man with a lot of impurities in the mind awakens the Shakti by sheer force through Asanas, Pranayamas and Mudras, he will break his legs and stumble down. He will not be able to ascend the Yogic ladder. This is the chief reason for people going out of the way or getting some bodily infirmities. There is nothing wrong in the Yoga. 3- People must have purity first; then a thorough knowledge of the Sadhana, a proper guide, and a steady, gradual practice. When Kundalini is awakened there are many temptations on the way, and a Sadhaka without purity will not have the strength to resist. 4-A thorough knowledge of the theory is as essential as the practice. Some are of opinion that theory is not at all necessary. They bring one or two rare instances to prove that Kundalini has been awakened even in those who do not know anything about Nadis, Chakras and Kundalini. It might be due to mere chance but for a short time. 5-Everyone cannot expect this and neglect the theoretical side. If you look at the man in whom Kundalini has been awakened through the grace of a Guru, you will not at once begin to neglect the practical side and actually waste your time in passing from one Guru to the other. The man who has a clear knowledge of the theory and a steady practice, attains the desired goal quickly. 6-Kundalini can be awakened by Pranayama, Asanas and Mudras by Hatha Yogis; by concentration and training of the mind by Raja Yogis; by devotion and perfect self-surrender by Bhaktas; by analytical will by the Jnanis; by Mantras by the Tantrikas; and by the grace of the Guru (Guru Kripa) through sight or mere Sankalpa( BUT RARE ). Rousing of Kundalini and its union with Shiva at the Sahasrara Chakra effect the state of Samadhi and Mukti. No Samadhi is possible without awakening the Kundalini. 7-For a selected few, any one of the above methods is quite sufficient to awaken the Kundalini. Many will have to combine different methods. This is according to the growth and position of the Sadhakas in the spiritual path. This is something like the doctor prescribing a proper medicine to a patient to cure a particular disease. One kind of medicine will not cure the diseases of different patients. So also, one kind of Sadhana may not suit all. 8-There are many persons nowadays who foolishly imagine that they have attained purity, commit errors in selecting some methods and neglect many important items of Sadhana. They are poor, self-deluded souls. Self-assertive, Rajasic Sadhakas will select some exercises of their own fancy in an irregular manner and leave all the exercises when they get some serious troubles. 9-After Kundalini is awakened, Prana passes upwards through Brahma Nadi along with mind and Agni. You will have to take it up to Sahasrara Chakra through some special exercises .. 10-As soon as it is awakened, it pierces the Muladhara Chakra (Bheda). It should be taken to Sahasrara through various Chakras. When Kundalini is at one Chakra, intense heat is felt there and when it leaves that centre for another Chakra, the former Chakra becomes very cold and appears lifeless. 11-Freedom from Kama, Krodha, Raga and Dvesha and possession of balance of mind, cosmic love, astral vision, supreme fearlessness, desirelessness, Siddhis, divine intoxication and spiritual Ananda are the signs to denote the awakening of Kundalini. When it is at rest, a man has full consciousness of the world and its surroundings. When it is awakened he is dead to the world. He has no body-consciousness. He attains Unmani state. 12-When Kundalini travels from Chakra to Chakra, layer after layer of the mind becomes opened and the Yogi acquires psychic powers. He gets control over the five elements. When it reaches the Sahasrara Chakra, he is in the Chidakasa (knowledge space). WHAT IS THE WRONG INTERPRETATION OF KUNDALINI YOG?--
06 FACTS;- 1-Awakening of the Kundalini Shakti, its union with Shiva, enjoying the nectar and other functions of the Kundalini Yoga that are described in the Yoga Sastras are misrepresented and taken in a literal sense by many. They think that they are Shiva and ladies to be Shakti and that mere sexual union is the aim of Kundalini Yoga. After having some wrong interpretation of the Yogic texts, they begin to offer flowers and worship their partners with lustful propensities. 2-The term “Divine intoxication that is derived by drinking the nectar” is also misrepresented. They take a lot of wine and other intoxicating drinks and imagine to have enjoyed the Divine ecstasy. It is mere ignorance. They are utterly wrong. This sort of worship and union is not at all Kundalini Yoga. They divert their concentration on sexual centres and ruin themselves. 3-Some foolish young boys practise one or two Asanas, Mudras and a little Pranayama too for a few days, in any way they like, and imagine that the Kundalini has gone up to their neck. They pose as big Yogis. They are pitiable, self-deluded souls. 4- Even a Vedanti (a student of Jnana Yoga) can get Jnana Nishtha only through awakening of the Kundalini Shakti that lies dormant at the Muladhara Chakra. No superconscious state or Samadhi is possible without awakening this primordial energy, whether it is Raja Yoga, Bhakti Yoga, Hatha Yoga ,Sahaj Yog or Jnana Yoga. 5-It is easy to awaken the Kundalini, but it is very difficult to take it to Sahasrara Chakra through the different Chakras. It demands a great deal of patience, perseverance, purity and steady practice. The Yogi who has taken it to Sahasrara Chakra, is the real master of all forces. 6-Generally Yogic students stop their Sadhana half-way on account of false Tushti (satisfaction). They imagine that they have reached the goal when they get some mystic experiences and psychic powers. They desire to demonstrate such powers to the public to get Khyati (reputation and fame) and to earn some money. This is a sad mistake. Full realisation alone can give the final liberation, perfect peace and Highest Bliss.
WHAT IS THE PERFECT METHOD & ELIGIBILITY OF KUNDALINI AWAKENING?- 07 FACTS;--- 1-A harmonious combination of all methods is necessary for the vast majority of persons. In the following posts I will tell you the different exercises that are intended to awaken the Kundalini. If you are wise enough, after a perusal of the different exercises, you can easily pick up the right method of Sadhana that suits you best and attain success.But i can focus on that method .which i know. 2-We are acquainted with BODY ,, MIND & SOUL---so we need VEDANT FOR SOUL,TANTRA & YOG FOR MIND & BODY..IN THIS WAY COMBINATION OF THESE THREE PATTERN IS ESSENTIAL FOR AWAKENING OUR KUNDALINI... 3- THIS COMBINATION IS OPENING THE GATE FOR SPOUSE..IT IS NOT ESSENTIAL TO BECOME ASCETIC ( LEAVE HOME & LIVE IN FOREST),,AGHORE,,,NAGA ,,,HATHYOGI ETC. ALTHOUGH I RESPECT ALL OF THEM BUT CAN'T FOLLOW THEIR LIFE STYLE.THE KING JANAK; A VIDEHA , A BRAHMAN-JNANI IS MY IDEAL.... ADI SHANKARA ,A SHAIVA ,A SHAKT,A SAMAYCHARI TANTRIK IS MY IDEAL..... .SWAMI VIVEKANANDA ,A WORSHIPPER OF NIRGUN & SAGUN BRAHMAN ;A PARAGON OF HINDUISM IS MY IDEAL.. 4-BEING SPOUSE, DOESN'T MEAN THAT YOU HAVE FREEDOM FOR LUST.. A TIME TABLE IS NECESSARY TO FOLLOW .IT TAKES THE PERIOD OF SEVEN YEARS TO DEVELOP ONE CHAKRA ;SO AT THE AGE OF FORTY TWO (SIXTH CHAKRA ) CONTROL YOURSELF & CONVERT YOUR LUST INTO LOVE.. 5-KUNDALINI AWAKENING IS ESSENTIAL FOR AMBITIOUS ONES...BECAUSE THIS IS THE ONLY WAY TO SATISFY YOUR MIND.....BUT DON'T FORGET THAT SRI RAM & RAVAN ---BOTH ARE KUNDALINI SADHAKS..ONE IS BENEFITING THE HUMAN KIND & OTHER IS HARMING THEM..THAT IS THE REASON THIS KNOWLEDGE IS CONSIDERED AS FORBIDDEN FRUIT.. (Adam and Eve ate the fruit of knowledge of good and evil in the Garden of Eden, which they had been commanded not to do by God. ) 6-SO THIS FORBIDDEN FRUIT IS NOT FOR THOSE WHO WANT TO RULE LIKE RAVAN;ITS KALIYUG ..
