The 6 Chakras are also called the 6-fold wealth. In spiritual science it is called Sham (mental control), Dama (sense organ control), Uparati (dispassion), Titiksha (forbearance), Shradha (faith), Samadhan (concentration). Sham means serenity. Meaning destruction of agitation, tension, anguish and anger. Dama means mastery of the sense organs and stopping them from straying towards their respective objects. Uparati means fighting against vileness, wickedness etc of the mind.
Titiksha means calmly enduring all obstacles that come in the way of attaining higher goals of life. Shradha means deep faith in all sacred activities. Samadhan means overcoming greed, delusion and arrogance. In reality awakening the 6 Chakras automatically leads to the purification of one,s character, actions and qualities.
By warding off the separate nature of the gigantic cosmos and one,s individual body via activation of the 6 Chakras and Kundalini it has to be correlated and by overcoming its unconscious nature there is a method of activating it in totality. Those 8 Sidhis (divine powers) mentioned by Adi Shankaracharya in his poem ,Soundarya Lahiri,are attained by activating the 6 Chakras, Sahasrar and the inner soul. These Sidhis are 1) Janma Sidhi ,. having a glimpse of past births 2) Shabda Jnana Sidhi , knowing the hidden meaning behind words heard by the gross ears. 3) Shastra Sidhi , true knowledge of scriptures 4) Sahan Sakti , the power to endure hardships and obstacles in life 5) Tapah Shakti ,. the power to endure worldly heat and calamities. 6) Shaap Shakti , the power to curse others or give a boon. 7) Vidya Shakti , knowing the thoughts of the minds of others. 8) Vijnan Shakti , the power to know the secrets and mysteries of the cosmos. In reality Lord Sankaracharya in his eulogy of the Kundalini has very emotionally said :
Whatever I am today is because of your grace on an illiterate person like myself.
Kundalini Shakti has been described even by other religious leaders. Amongst them the Sufi school of thought is very close to Indian philosophy. Darashikoh (elder son of Shah Jehan) despite being a Sufi was also a scholar of Upanishads. He had also studied Yoga and Tantra texts and has given a commentary in the Persian language. He has commented on the Kundalini Shakti in his book ,Risala-Ai-Hukmanama, and describes 3 centers as Dil-E-Muddavar, Dil-E-Sarovari, Dil-E-Nilophari. These correspond to the Brahmagranthi, Vishnugranthi and Rudragranthi. They are also called Sahasrar, Anahat and Mooladhar Chakras. Sheikh Mohamed Iqbal in his book ,The Development of Metaphysics in Persia, writes how Hindu philosophy is food for deep thought for followers of other religious sects. A scholar called Al Brooni had translated Yoga Sootras and Sankhya Sootras in Arabic language in the 11th century.
According to Tibetan texts the chief energy centers of the human body lie in the head, throat, heart, solar plexus and center of the genital organs. Even in Greek philosophy 6 energy centers have been elucidated. Great anatomists have correlated the secret energy centers, described in Yogic texts as Chakras and Kamals, to the electrical flow, endocrine glands and other autonomic ganglia. That spot and shape named ,Cusos,in Japan can be correlated to glands and Chakras. The famous psychologist Benjamin Walker in his book ,Encyclopedia of Esosteric Man, says that the endocrine glands with their hormones and energy of the 6 Chakras play a major role in rise/fall, qualities, actions, nature and personality of mankind.
Kundalini is the vital force fire which when ignited like a latent spark in the pyre of vital force (i.e. the genitals), pierces the 6 worlds and reaches the 7th world of Brahmaloka. There its form becomes that of fire of Brahman. The vital force fire radiates the special qualities of the body and mind. The demi-gods and Rishis drink this very Soma Juice. The Brahmarshis by sacrificing the soul in God establish the important Advaita State (non-duality) wherein the individual soul merges in God and thus becomes God. This description of spiritual Yajna has been detailed elaborately but also with a little control and it is also called soul Yajna.
The vital force fire attracts and pulls towards itself the material potentials of the bodily power in the form of divine glories (Vibhutis) in the innermost core of the soul. It gives one a chance to drink the nectar like Soma Juice and thus transform lowliness into greatness.
Kundalini is Shakti (Parvati) and Sahasrar is Shiva. Due to the union of Shiva-Shakti, 2 boons are obtained. And they are Ganesha the Lord of a wise intellect and Kartikeya the Lord of all energies. The spiritual aspirant sees his body overflowing with Vaishwanar Mahamaya and in the Brahmarandhra one can visibly notice divine consciousness manifesting just like the manifestation of the Ganges river. All this is equivalent to Soma Juice for earth denizens and for heavenly denizens it is nectar. In spiritual science both Soma and nectar are 2 entities of one stature.
Where the human brain is said to be situated on the Sahasrar there a sort of pulpy material is seen in the bones of the skull. But its true greatness is very widespread. One major part of it is called ,Silent or Dark Area, which constitutes 87% to 93%of the head region. The Silent Area (i.e. right parietal cortex, corpus callojum and limbic system etc.) takes up much more space than both the conscious and unconscious parts of the brain put together. The centers of divine powers are within these areas. Psychological sciences can only research into the conscious and unconscious mind. This superconscious mind is totally beyond their ken and reach.
Kundalini Yoga is very much a part of Hatha Yoga. Hatha Yoga is closer to Tantra Science. Its cause is many practices like Mohan, Ucchatan, Vashikaran etc with which one can attack someone and cause his downfall.
When Robert Fabian a Secret Agent of Scotland Yard was in Africa he saw so many Tantrik acts being executed which led to the death of many people. He has delved deep into these incidences in a book written by him.
Hence only a serene aspect of these practices is seen in direct cures. The rest is kept a top secret because if it gets into the hands of a vile charactered person, it can only result in disaster. That bomb which aids in shattering huge mountains so as to create roadways can also be misused to shatter schools, hospitals etc. so as to cause the downfall of others. The reason why certain spiritual practices are kept a secret is that it should not lead to someone,s downfall. There is a story of the churning of the ocean in Indian Mythology (Puranas) wherein the demi-gods and demons together churned the ocean so as to obtain 14 jewels.
A dross pit has been spoken of in the cave of the vagina of Kundalini. This is Kurma (tortoise). The churning rod which was called the Mandarachal mountain is in reality the Merudand. The serpent was used as a rope to churn the ocean. That is the Ida and Pingala of 3 , snakelike rounds. Due to churning and rotation a lot of energy manifested. In sexual play too there is a lot of churning and in Kundalini Yoga there is churning of the vital force (Pranas). From it both nectar as well as poison can manifest. If by misusing these secret sciences like in Vamachar Tantrik practices one destroys another person then this means that poison has manifested and if it is aptly utilized for cosmic welfare, it definitely is nectar. Pious folks make apt use of it and vile men misuse it. Hence there is a policy of hiding it / covering it like one hides one,s genital organs.
The sleeping serpentess first attacks that very person who tries to wake her up and harasses that person. Misuse and causing harassment inciting the serpentess. In order to show off miracles and cause others, downfall many foolish men misuse it. The sexual passion also augments and can become lewd in that onrush.
In Henry Oslo,s book called ,Notes on Spiritual Physiology, it is written that the sexual passion in men and women commences from the sacrocarxial region of the lower half of the Merudand. The laxness and onrush in this area depends on sexual passion. When this area gets distorted anyone can become full of lust with sex or become a eunuch. Hence Yogic texts ordain that this region should be made powerful via Yogic exercises like Mooladhar Bandh, Shakti Chalini Mudra, Vajrasan and Padmasan. Through these methods of Kundalini awakening the flow has to be raised upwards. If this is not adhered to, the flow falls down and thus the spiritual aspirant at a very young age feels the weakness of aged people.
The word Kundalini means ,to sit in an enclosure,. The female serpent makes an enclosure and sits in it but yet its hood is higher up. This is its front part. She commences running from here on and after waking up, goes to the Sahasrar Kamal of the Brahmarandhra. Then she goes to the grey matter and ultimately sticks to the reticular activating system. This spiritual practise is described in Shiva temples via various pictures and images. Kundalini is that in which one finds water. Shiva,s form is like that of the Kailash Mountain and round like a crystal Shivling. It is set up in the middle of a water pot.
The living being too sits down by enclosing Kundalini. One fails to gauge as to how many things it has control over. But the reality is this that it cannot even subdue its own body. He only shoulders the burden of sins and pious deeds along with its atonements.
One of the conclusions of Kundalini awakening is not to make the periphery of ,I-ness, very short. He should not continue sleeping. He should awaken himself and carry out such pious deeds wherein other people bound by the walls of selfishness too awaken. They should induce others to walk on the path wherein the awakened Kundalini goes to the Sahasrar so as to unite with Lord Shiva dwelling there. Thus the spiritual practices of a spiritual aspirant can touch the highest peaks of spirituality.
