The Kundalini is the harp on which the Divine plays the melody of its Love. She is
the ladder by which the seeker steps across the threshold into the fathomless
Unconscious. She is the jumping board that allows one to soar from finite to infinite in the
ocean of freedom, peace and bliss…
Ancient sages who meditated and achieved great heights of awareness, have
written a lot about Kundalini. Living away from the public in forest dwellings they saw the
working of Kundalini within themselves during meditation. Apart from descriptions in
ancient Indian scriptures, Kundalini has also been described in religious books like the
Thorats, Bible and the Koran as ‘the fire tree’. In those books there are many references
couched in secretive language which few would have understood.
The Bible tells of the first meeting of all the disciples with the Virgin Mary after the Crucifixion. The closed room
they met in “was filled with a great wind, and there appeared above their heads, as it
were, separate tongues of fire, and they were filled with the Holy Ghost.” This is a
description of a vision of Kundalini.
Various Chinese philosophers have also described the Kundalini in their writings, and Greek mythology catalogued the same Gods and
The Zen Buddhist religion teaches very clearly that the basis of Buddhist meditation is the science of Kundalini.
The name ‘Kundalini’ was bestowed by Indian sages. God has never given a name
to anything He has created.
It is the feminine form of the word ‘Kunda’ which means ‘rings’
or ‘coils’ in Sanskrit. Although written in secretive language, the description of Kundalini in
those ancient scriptures is easily intelligible to a Sahaja Yogi. Realized souls can visualize
and understand the subtle implication behind the meanings of gross sentences. It is high
time people compiled and organized the scattered descriptions about Kundalini from all
these great scriptures. It would be enlightening to the religious followers of all these sects
to understand that in every religion, the flame of truth burns on the wick of Kundalini.
She is a universal identity in every human being.
