It is interesting to note that each religion gives a different name to this event. The Koran calls it Resurrection and the reward takes the form of “gardens watered by running streams“. The goal of Hinduism is “self-realisation” and that of Buddhism “nirvana”, where the being feels a rain of bliss upon him. Christians call it “baptism” or “entry into the kingdom of God”. There too, the symbolic gesture of John the Baptist uses the element of water on Christ’s fontanel. In the same way the Pentecostal wind which descended upon the heads of the disciples marked their entry into a new dimension, the enlightenment of their awareness through the perception of vibrations, an experience which is in every way similar to the awakening of the Kundalini today.
Are not streams, rain and wind the metaphors used by the different traditions to refer to the event of self-realization? Hindus, Jews, Christians and Muslims experience their union in the light of the same source, that of Allah.
The Hindu has no choice but to acknowledge the cool showers of bliss descending on his brain devoid of thoughts, drenched in the absolute silence of the Eternal. The Jew enjoyed the same well-being and feels the burning bush which was revealed to Moses vibrating within him:
…lit from a blessed tree, an olive, neither of the East nor of the West, whose oil is well-nigh luminous, through fire scarce touched it: light upon Light! (Sürah an-Nür (The Light) v35
For the first time, the Christian feels the “breath” of the Holy Spirit on his head, face and body in the same way Christ’s Apostles did on the day of Pentecost. He understands symbolic and somewhat enigmatic paintings of the classical period: the descent of the Holy Spirit in the form of a dove onto the heads of the chosen ones is often accompanied by a beam of light descending from the bird’s beak to the head of the elected, surrounded in its turn by a golden halo.
This ray is none other than the omnipresent Primordial Energy filling the human brain which its Holy Spirit and the golden halo the vibrations issuing forth from the fontanel.
