WHAT ARE THE SECRETS WHEN THE KUNDALINI REACHES THE CROWN CHAKRA BY PIERCING THROUGH THE THREE KNOT
WHAT IS ROUSING OF THE KUNDALINI?-
The intelligent practitioner of Yoga should, by means of close investigation and great deliberation, avoid these 11 obstacles;-
1-With the mind firmly fixed on the Truth, the practice of Pranayama should be performed daily. Then the mind takes its repose in the Sushumna. The Prana therefore never moves.
2- When the impurities of the mind are thus removed and Prana is absorbed in the Sushumna, one becomes a true Yogin.
3- When the accumulated impurity, clogging the Sushumna Nadi, is completely removed and the passage of vital air through the Sushumna is effected by performing Kevala Kumbhaka, the Yogin forcibly causes the Apana with the downward course to rise upwards by the contraction of the anus (Mula Bandha).
4- Thus raised up, the Apana mixes with Agni. Then they go up quickly to the seat of Prana. Then, Prana and Apana uniting with one another, go to Kundalini which is coiled up and asleep.
5-Heated by Agni and stirred up by Vayu, Kundalini stretches its body in the interior of the mouth of the Sushumna.
6-The Kundalini Reaches The Sahasrara By Piercing Through The Three Knots.
The Kundalini pierces through the Brahmagranthi formed of Rajas. It flashes at once like lightning at the mouth of Sushumna.
7-Then Kundalini goes up at once through Vishnugranthi to the heart. Then it goes up through the Rudragranthi and above it to the middle of the eyebrows.
8-Having pierced this place, the Kundalini goes up to the Mandala (sphere) of the moon. It dries up the moisture produced by the moon in the Anahata Chakra which has sixteen petals.
9-Through the speed of Prana, when the blood is agitated, it becomes bile (A bitter, alkaline, fluid that is secreted by the liver) from its contact with the sun. Then it goes to the sphere of the moon. Here it becomes of the nature of pure phlegm (calmness of temperament).
10-When it flows there ; the blood which is very cold become hot . Since at
the same time the intense white form of moon is rapidly heated. The agitated Kundalini moves upwards and the shower of nectar flows more copiously(in large quantities).
11-As a result of swallowing this, the Chitta of the Yogin is kept away from all sensual pleasures. The Yogin is exclusively absorbed in the Atma partaking of the sacrificial offering called nectar. He takes his stand in his own Self.He enjoys
He enjoys this highest state. He becomes devoted to the Atman and attains peace.
THE DISSOLUTION OF PRANA & OTHERS;-
1-The Kundalini then goes to the seat of the Sahasrara. It gives up the eight forms of the Prakriti:-
1`- Earth, 2-Water, 3-Fire, 4-Air,
5-Ether, 6-Mind, 7-Intellect 8-Egoism.
2- After claspingthe eye, the mind, the Prana and the others in her embrace, the Kundalini goes to Shiva and clasping (hold tightly ) Shiva as well, dissolves herself in the Sahasrara.
3-Thus Rajas-Sukla or the seminal fluid which rises up, goes to Shiva along with Marut or the Vayu. Prana and Apana which are always produced become equal.
4-Prana flows in all things, big and small, describable or indescribable, as fire in gold. The breath also dissolves itself.
5-Born together of the same quality, the Prana and the Apana also dissolve themselves in the presence of Shiva in the Sahasrara. Having reached an equipoised condition, they no longer go up or down.
6- Then the Yogi thrives with the Prana spread outward in the form of attenuated elements or in the mere remembrance of it, the mind having been reduced to the form of faint impressions and the speech having remained only in the form of recollection.
7-All the vital airs then spread themselves outright in his body even as gold in a crucible (a metal container in which metals may be melted) placed on fire.
A CONSCIOUS EXPERIENCE( During Samadhi);-
1-The body of the Yogi attains very subtle state of the pure Brahman. By causing the body made of the elements to be absorbed in a subtle state in the form of the Paramatman or the supreme Deity, the body of the Yogi gives up its impure corporal state.
2-That alone which is of the nature of the Absolute Consciousness, which is of the character of the attribute “I” of all beings, the Brahman, the subtlest form of That alone is the Truth underlying all things.
3-That alone which is of the nature of the Absolute Consciousness, which is of the character of the attribute “I” of all beings, the Brahman, the subtlest form of That alone is the Truth underlying all things.
4-When such is not the case, only all kinds of absurd and impossible notions arise. The rope-serpent and such other absurd notions, brought about by delusion take their rise. Absurd notions like the notion which men and women have, of silver, in the shell of the pearl-oyster, arise. drawing of such knowledge of the form of the Atman, the liberation is attained by him.
5-When such is not the case, only all kinds of absurd and impossible notions arise. The rope-serpent and such other absurd notions, brought about by delusion take their rise. Absurd notions like the notion which men and women have, of silver, in the shell of the pearl-oyster, arise.
6-The Yogi should realise the oneness of the Visvatman and others up to the Turiya. He should realise the oneness of the microcosm with the Virat Atman and others, upto the Turiya, of the macrocosm, also of the Linga with the Sutratman, of the Self with the unmanifested state, of the Atman manifested in one’s Self with the Atman of Consciousness.
THE SAMADHI YOGA;-
1-It is in contact with the hole of Brahmanadi of Sushumna, taking hold of its tail with its mouth.the upper end of its body, at the root of the Lotus, the Mulakanda or the Muladhara.
2-It is in contact with the hole of Brahmanadi of Sushumna, taking hold of its
tail .with its mouth.Seated in Padmasana, if a person who has accustomed himself to the contraction of his anus (Mula Bandha), makes the Vayu go upwards with the mind intent on Kumbhaka, the Agni comes to the Svadhishthana flaming, owing to the blowing of Vayu.
3-From the blowing of Vayu and Agni, Kundalini pierces open the Brahmagranthi. It then pierces open the Vishnugranthi.
4-Khechari contains the Bija or the seed-letter. Khechari Bija is spoken of as Agni encircled with water. It is the abode of the Devas or the Khecharas. The mastery of the Siddhi is obtained by this Yoga. should be known as the highest state. This alone is the giver of final beatitude(supreme blessedness)..
WHAT IS KHECHARI VIDYA?-
1. Now, then, a description of the science called Khechari.He who has duly mastered this science, is freed from old age and death, in this world.
2- He who has gained a knowledge of the Khechari from books, from the exposition of the meaning of the same, and who has by recourse to its practice, gained a mastery of this science, becomes the destroyer of old age, death and disease, in this world.Knowing this science, one who is subject to the pains of death, disease and old age, should make his mind firm and practise Khechari.
3-The science of Khechari is not easily accessible. Its practice is not easily attainable. Its practice and Melana are not accomplished simultaneously. Literally, Melana is joining.
4-The key to this science of Khechari is kept a profound secret. The secret is revealed by adepts only at initiation.They do not get Melana.
Only some get the practice after several births. But, even after hundred births, Melana is not obtained.As a result of having undergone the practice for several births, some Yogis get the Melana in some future birth.
5-The Yogi attains the Siddhi mentioned in several books, when he gets this Melana from Guru.The state of Shiva freed from all rebirth, is achieved when the practitioner gets this Melana from the grasp of the significance presented in the
books.This science is, therefore, very difficult to master. Until he gets this science, the ascetic should wander over earth.
6-The ascetic has physical powers or Siddhis in his hand, the moment he obtains this science.One should therefore regard as Achyuta or Vishnu,
any person who imparts this Melana. He who teaches the practice, should be regarded as Shiva.One who knows this science, should practise it with all his efforts. Except to those who deserve it, he should give it to none.
7-One who is able to teach the Divine Yoga, is the Guru. To the place where he lives, one should go. Then, learn from him the science of Khechari.
8-Taught well by him, one should at first practise it carefully. A person will then attain the Siddhi of Khechari, by means of this science.
9-One becomes the Lord of Khecharas or the Devas, by joining with Khechari Shakti (viz., Kundalini Shakti) by means of this science of Khechari. He lives amongst them, always.
1-Khechari contains the Bija or the seed-letter. Khechari Bija is spoken of as Agni encircled with water. It is the abode of the Devas or the Khecharas. The
mastery of the Siddhi is obtained by this Yoga.
2-The ninth letter or Bija of Somamsa or the Moon face, should be pronounced in the reverse order. Then consider it as the Supreme and its beginning as fifth. This is said to be Kuta (horns) of the several parts of the moon.
3-One who recites this twelve times everyday will not get even in sleep that Maya or illusion which is born in his body and is the source of all vicious deeds.
4-To the one who recites this five lakhs of times with very great care, the science of Khechari will reveal itself. For him, all obstacles vanish. The Devas are pleased. Without doubt, the destruction of the greyness of hair and wrinkles, (Valipalita) will take place.
5- One who has acquired the great science, should practise it constantly. Otherwise, he will not get any Siddhi in the path of Khechari.
6-If in this practice, one does not get this nectar-like science, he should get it in the beginning of Melana and recite it always. Otherwise, one who is without it never gets Siddhi.
7-No sooner one gets this science, than one should practise it. It is then that
one will soon get the Siddhi.The seven syllables HRIM, BHAM, SAM, PAM, PHAM, SAM and KSHAM constitute the Khechari Mantra.
HOW TO GET BENEFIT OF KHECHARI VIDYA?-
1-The benefits of Khecharī Mudrā are strengthened when it is performed together with Ujjāyī Prānāyāma and Jālandhara Bandha (Chin Lock).
2-Ujjāyī Prānāyāma is a breathing technique with concentration on the process of breathing in the throat. The throat is contracted slightly so that the air flowing through it produces a soft sound, as in deep sleep. Through Jālandhara Bandha the flow of energy is briefly interrupted and the Prāna is held in the throat .
3- The reason for this is that the nectar flows towards the throat in this inverted position and is therefore prevented from being burnt in the Manipūra Chakra.
The moon is a symbol of perfection, nectar and energy. Nature receives life-sustaining Prāna from the moon allowing everything to grow and thrive, as moonlight is also essential for the growth of plants and the ripening of fruit – not only sunlight.CONTD..
