How we measure Spirituality? What is Kundalini & What is Not Kundalini? Explore a Compilation of Responses that offer Essential Spiritual Definitions and Clarifications

This article provides you with many excerpts from the lecture of the founder of Sahaja Yoga Meditation. Enjoy!

“We can change the whole world and you start understanding the problems of the world and you can get rid of them with your Kundalini (energy) awakening. Such a great thing is this Kundalini, I tell you, that it makes human beings something Superlative. It’s all described as sayings and this and that, but a Sahaja Yogi has a greater power and the greater power is that he can make others Sahaja Yogi[s].”

Shri Mataji – the founder of Sahaja Yoga Meditation

What is Self Realization? Answers & Connections to Pure Energy, Desire and Knowledge

“First of all, I think this is the most important thing to understand about your own Kundalini,

as Self Realization is Self-Knowledge.And the one who gives you Self Knowledge is this: your own Kundalini because when she rises, she points it out what are the problems on your chakras (subtle energy centers). Now, we say that (Kundalini) is pure desire, but we do not know what “purity” means. It means your chaste desire.’

‘It means it has no lust, greed, anything in it. That power is your own mother (subtle primordial energy) and is settled in your triangular bone. She’s your own mother. She knows everything about you. It’s like a tape recorder. She knows everything about you and she is absolutely the Knowledge because she’s so pure. And whatever chakras she touches, she also knows what’s wrong with that chakra beforehand. So she’s quite prepared and she adjusts herself fully so that you do not get a problem by Her awakening. If any chakra is constricted, she waits and goes on slowly opening that chakra.’

‘Now, this Kundalini is the Primordial Power (Shri Adi Shakti) which is reflected within you and within you, in a human being, it is like many strands of energy. So it’s like a rope and these energies are all twisted together to form this Kundalini.’

‘In a human being these strands are three into seven – that is twenty-one – raised to power hundred and eight.’

(21 powered by 108)

‘But when your Kundalini (energy) rises, one or two strands out of this come up and pierce the fontanel bone area. Only one or two because it has to pass through the inner most nadi (subtle energy channel), known as Brahma Nadi (“God’s Channel” in Sanskrit language). It’s all a spiral throughout because Kundalini is a spiral and these nadis are also are like a spiral like this. So the innermost nadi is the Brahma Nadi. The outermost nadi is the right side and the second innermost is the Ida Nadi.’

So, through the Brahma Nadi, she (your Kundalini energy) starts sending those threads. By that, they relax the centre.

By the relaxation of the centre, the sympathetic nervous system also starts relaxing and when it goes to the Agnya Chakra (the 6th enery centre), then your eyes start relaxing, your pupils start dilating and your eyes can become like mine, very black, absolutely relaxed.’

‘So, you can easily see in a person how far is the Kundalini. If it has pierced the Agnya chakra, then the eyes will be completely dilated and will be shining and then she (Kundalini energy) enters into the Sahasrara (the crown chakra).’

‘Now, it (Kundalini energy) is absolutely pure light of knowledge, love, compassion and attention. All these three things are in that energy. We know of many energies like electrical energy. We know of light energy. We know of other energies. But these energies cannot think. They cannot adjust. They cannot work on their own. They are to be handled by us.’

‘But this energy (Kundalini), itself is the Living Energy and knows how to handle itself. It thinks.’

‘If you see a seed being sprouted, you’ll find at the tip of the seed there’s a small little cell which knows how to go around the soft places and then how to encircle the stones and then how to find its way to the source.’

‘That cell has got, I would say, a little Kundalini in it, the way it moves.’

‘But within you .. a tremendous force of Kundalini exists.’

‘So, you have a Storehouse of Compassion, which can be Enlightened by the Spirit.’

‘You have the Storehouse of Love, Compassion and Knowledge and Ocean of Forgiveness.’

When people get Realization, they do not understand that they have to now grow.’

‘And why they don’t grow? Because they do not ask for these energies. A person who is a realized soul, if he says, ‘I have to have more compassion. My compassion is not all right. My concern about others is not all right. My generosity is not all right. I’m exploiting others. I’m exploiting their love,’ then this energy starts moving, giving you that greater dimension of love and compassion. But if you do not want to be growing in your awareness, then She (Kundalini) says, ‘All right. He is a half-baked Sahaja Yogi. Let it be.’ She doesn’t supply that energy which is stored within you, I told you, (it is) three into seven, that is twenty-one, raised to power hundred and eight. So what a storehouse you have within yourself!’

“But because of your mundane style of thinking and asking – in the beginning, when I started Sahaja Yoga people used to ask for, say, jobs or for ‘my mother is sick’ or a father is sick or they would ask for money or something like that. So these wants are not pure wants. As we know in economics, they are not pure wants. They’re impure wants because they are never satiable in general.”

Higher Personality – Deeper Personality – Wider Personality

 “So this Kundalini that is your Mother, She is there to supply you, nourish you, to look after you, to make you grow by giving you a higher personality – higher personality, wider personality, deeper personality. Now, we think if somebody is well read, then we think he is a higher personality. Sometimes a person who is rich, we think he is a higher personality. Sometimes we think a person who is very hard working is a higher personality. Sometimes we think a person who is, I mean, some sort of a confusion about religion or something, we think he is a higher personality. Our ideas about higher personality itself are wrong. People are higher because they are spiritually evolved.”

Otherwise, they are not.”

    what a beautiful illustrative expressions to project Mother’s teaching to humanity. The truth and the love and the compassion . It is simply awsome article.

  2. armaity

    It’s so simple. All we need is to pray and ask the Divine for unconditional love and compassion. But the precondition is to be connected to the Divine and be worthy of it.

  3. medi

    Whatever is touched by love becomes spiritual.
    When I say “whatever” I really mean it without any restriction.
    There is no good or no bad. There is no negative and no positive but there is with or without love.
    I prayed Destiny to do what ever it wanted with me as joy or suffering but that to be done with love.
    God heard that and gave me a heart.
    My eyes can not see anymore but Love.

    1. adrian-arie

      You say…
      “there is no good and bad”
      “There is no negative and no positive”
      very profound…
      There is only absolution
      Then you are able to grow
      And expand into yourself
      Your LOVING SELF

  4. Debbie

    Mother Kundalini is an ocean full of love, joy, compassion, purity, generousity and the best of everything. Like a Mother, she knows everything about her children and is there to provide guidance.

    Lots of love always.

    Amazing vibrations flowing out from the computer screen! That’s the beauty and power of kundalini awakening, a palpable awareness and happiness that flows like an ever-widening river…and a scientific method for discovering the truth about our inner self, communicating through the central nervous system to our hands and helping us decipher the greatest discovery of our time. Thoughtless Awareness+Kundalini Awakening+Introspection… (YOUR SELF IS “YOURS TO DISCOVER, AND YOUR GOING TO LOVE IT!” (Borrowed from the Ontario slogan! Available for free at Sahaja Yoga Classes Everywhere!

    the description of the kundalini and how it works is most fasctinating and informative As it travels it repairs the chakras that need help, relaxes the central nervous system.

    Love compassion and forgiveness – I pray for it daily. Life interrupts with challenges at most inconvenient times and that’s when it becomes harder and more necessary for me to work harder at this.

    “The Living Energy”…
    The Kundalini

    The Other energies…
    Of food, light, heat… etc
    They have roles…
    But they are not Living in the sense
    That they have a knowing.

    The knowing is that of
    Divine Guidance…
    And the wisdom to use that…

    Simply trust in these…
    And enjoy.

    1. adrian-arie

      And when you trust in these…

      You are trusting yourself
      To BE yourself….
      And then you will trust
      Outside of yourself…
      And without…
      For then…

    Thanks for sharing of complete subtle knowledge of ´´MOTHER KUNDALINI´´.

  11. Colleen

    Thank you for this explanation. Practicing Sahaja Yoga Meditation does bring more joy and love into our lives. Asking to be more loving and compassionate and knowing that Kundalini responds to this is such a wonderful tool to have to ascend higher in our spirituality. Thank you 🙂

  12. Sunaina

    It is so amazing to feel when our primordial Mother kundalini nourishes us. Shree Mata Ji we love you:)

  13. Sahaj

    It is this dormant energy in me is the essence of life and to get it activated and channeled is the absolute aim of life. Hence the simile is that it is a individual journey to become one with collective being.

    Each time I read this article I learn something new. Thank you for this pure knowledge.

  16. Jolanta

    Very important information coming straight from the source.

  17. Jolanta

    It is good to read transcripts of Shri Mataji’s talks and/or hear Her talk about personality(ies) …Before i learned about Sahaja Yoga i heard/read so much nonsense that I associated the word “personality” with the pseudo intellectual psychobabble…

  18. Jolanta

    Here I am, leaving a reply again, now as part of my SYMN homework assignment.

    I find it important to (re)learn/read the information coming from Shri Mataji directly to remind myself about the ultimate truth, and so as not to go crazy and/or become a sheep/puppet/parrot in this crazy world.

    Thank you SYMN team for this homework assignment 🙂

  19. Ajay Nargas
