pages of history. Yet some defy even the Power of Time and continue to shine through eternity.
These are the names of the enlightened ones who dedicated their lives to search for the truth, for
the Divine. Their sole aim in life was to attain totality and this they could achieve through
awakening of the Kundalini.
The human body is the most excellent boon conferred by the Almighty and the person who
comprehends his own body completely, realises the subtle mysteries of the entire universe. All
universal faculties are concentrated as the force of life inside a human body which the scriptures
term as the vital power (Pran Shakti). The condensed form of the same vital forces is known
as 'Kundalini Shakti' which is the rock bottom of all the energies and power of action
inherent in a human being. As this divine power remains dormant just like the coil of a
snake, it has been designated as 'Kundalini Shakti' or the 'serpent Power'. For the purpose
of Self-Realisation, a man through his 'Sushumna' (spine) tries to uplift this Kundalini
Shakti in an upward tract and crossing all the Chakras (subtle spinal centres) tries to unite
it with 'Sahastrar'.
When the aspirant emerges successful in his endeavour, he gets divine vision and visualising his
real form though his divine eye, he feels overwhelmed with ecstasy and thus liberates himself
from the corporeal bondages of life and death.
At the base of the spinal cord every human being has a powerful, yet dormant source of energy.
This source is known as the Muladhar Chakra from which three subtle channels known as Naadis
rise up through the spine and reach thew brain. The middle Naadi is known as Sushumna while
on its either sides are the Ida and Pingla. At five other centres of highly concentrated energy,
called Chakras, along the spinal column, these three Naadis come together and then again divide
into three channels as they rise further.
Thus including the Muladhar there are various Chakras in which very powerful energy lies
dormant and once they are activated a human gains amazing divine powers like Telepathy,
Hypnotism, Clairvoyance. In fact complete success in life in any and every sphere can come only
through the activation of all the Chakras and it is with this aim that true Yogis remain engaged in
But this process can be very intricate and difficult unless one is helped by an enlightened Master
who has his own Kundalini fully activated, who is aware of all the processes of activation and
who can activate the Kundalini of others.
Inside the vertebral column, there are seven lotuses located on the Brahma Nadi. These are known as Chakra (spinal centres). Each lotus possesses different number of petals and also a distinct colour.
This Chakra is situated in the basal region of the vertebral column at the mid spot between anus and penis. In meditation, this Chakra is visualised as a red lotus possessing four petals. This is the resting place of the Kundalini Shakti, which lies here as a snake having three and half coil. This Chakra is the symbol of Earth element.
This Chakra is located in the vertebral column just opposite to the penial region. In meditation, this Chakra is visualised as a vermilion coloured lotus having six petals. This semilunar Chakra is the symbol of Water element.
Inside the vertebral column, this Chakra is situated just opposite to the naval region. This ten
petalled lotus is of blue colour. The Yantra of this Chakra is triangular in shape and it represents
the fire element.
Activation of this results in perfect digestion, riddance from ailments like kidney stones,
diabetes, liver problems etc. Success in amazing Sadhanas like flying in the air, walking on
water, telepathic contact with animals and plants, perfection in Prannayam and the highest
achievement is success in Meditation.
The relative position of this Chakra inside the vertebral column is just opposite to the cardiac
region (heart). This red coloured lotus possesses twelve petals and it represents the Air element.
Activation of this Chakra illuminates the entire body and the entire vertebral column starts
Activation of this results in peace of mind, boundless divine joy, total freedom from tensions, power to look into future, power of hypnosis, entering into Samadhi (divine trance), riddance from problems related to heart, increase in soft emotions like love, affection and kindness.
Activation of this results in riddance from all ailments related to throat, thyroid etc., increase in
knowledge, gain of power of eloquence, deeper Samadhi, perfection in the art of Hypnotism,
gain of power to die when one wills, total material success like comforts, wealth, fame etc.
Also called the Third Eye its activation brings wondrous powers like clairvoyance, telepathy,
power of giving curses or blessings, instant fulfillment of anything one wishes, and gain of
knowledge related to all subjects and sciences, power to control thoughts of others and interfere
even in nature.
Beyond these six Chakras at the upper termination of the spinal cord, is the thousand petalled
lotus; the abode of Lord Shiva (supreme being). When the Kundalini Shakti unites itself with the
supreme being, the aspirant gets engrossed in deep meditation during which he perceives infinite
This is a subtle centre in the brain. On activation of Sahastraar a very fine, elixir-like secretion is
produced from it which permeates the whole body thus making the human forever free of all
Sahastrar Chakra is also termed as Dasham Dwar of Brahmarandhara. In my view, this Chakra is situated two inches deep inside both the temporal region and three inches deep from the midspot between the eyebrows that is in the middle portion of cerebral hemispheres. From the throat, it is located three inches above the palate and inside the brain it is located in a small hole above the 'Maha Vivar' foramen of cerebrum.
Awakening of Sahastrar renders the aspirant liberated from corporeal bondages and attachments. He is endowed with all kinds of divine attainments including 'Ashta Siddhi' and 'Nava Nidhi'. He becomes an omniscient Yogi. Being emancipated from the cycles of birth and death, he certainly achieves the final beatitude.
