Before answering this, you have to understand what Chakras are and what is 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 SelfRealisation, 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
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.

Kundalini is the most powerful, yet dormant source of energy in each and every human being
coiled three and half times in deep slumber around swayambhu ling. This source is known as
the Muladhar Chakra from which three subtle channels known as Naadis rise up through the
spine and reach through brain. The middle Naadi is known as Sushumna while on its either
sides is 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 Sadhanas.
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.
Chakras: 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.
Amazing powers devolve on a human on activation of the Kundalini and each Chakra is related
to the following attainments.
1. Muladhar Chakra
Muladhar Chakra is the first gateway of Kundalini Shakti among the Seven Chakras. Muladhar
Chakra is the main base of human life, either of male or female. Muladhar Chakra is related with
Earth Element. It is located at the midpoint of Gudwaar (anus) and Linga (Penis). It is Yellow in
color. This Yellow Chakra has four petals of Lotus (the meaning of 4 petals is: Gudaa, Linga,
Naabhi & Hriday). The Beej Mantra of Muladhar Chakra is Lam ( ). This is the resting place of
the Kundalini Shakti, which lies here as a snake having three and half coil.
The main element of Muladhar Chakra is Sperm or Beej. This element is explosive in two ways.
First is the mobilization of the element to downwards which does not need the special process
or exertion. When it mobilizes downwards then human being produces a similar offspring
which does not possess special features in it. It is not unique process to produce offspring
except due to the compulsion of human being. He acknowledges that, this is the real pleasure in
the life.
Second is the mobilization of main element towards up which is the process of Kundalini
Jagaran. So the process of mobilizing the main base or Mul-Aadhar towards upside is known as
Muladhar. The main technique to activate Muladhar Chakra is Bhastrika, which is the process
of inhaling and exhaling the breath with full force.
The main base of human life is breathe, when one stops breathing, Muladhar will terminated
and when Muladhar terminates human life will be terminated. It means to activate Muladhar
Chakra; one must know the respiratory techniques. Bhastrika Pranayam helps to activate
dormant Muladhar Chakra because when we inhale the air with full force then the force of that
air collides against Muladhar Chakra and it becomes active and sentient. So, Bhastrika
Pranayam is best for mobilizing the Kundalini Shakti from Muladhara to Sahasrara.
Muladhar Chakra is the base of all Chakras so it is called as initial Tantra of Yoga to activate it.
Activation of this results in riddance from tensions, true happiness, beauty, perfect health,
physical strength & magnetic personality.
On the impureness of Muladhar Chakra one will be the victim of different kinds of diseases such
as: Constipation, Blood Hemorrhage, Excretory diseases, Swapna dosh etc.

2. Swadhishtthan Chakra
The Semi lunar Swadhishthan Chakra is related to Water element. This Chakra is located in the
vertebral column just opposite to the penial region. This Chakra is visualized as White Colored
Lotus having six petals. The Bij Mantra of Swadhishthan Chakra is Vam. Sadhak should be
careful while awakening Kundalini at this Chakra because Kundalini can be degraded at this
stage. While inhaling and exhaling the breath rapidly for awakening Kundalini Shakti at
Swasdhisthan Chakra, the senses become highly stimulated (increase in the sensual enjoyment
or sensual desire (Sexual Desire)).
Sadhak should be very careful and increase his will power for Kundalini Jagaran at this stage.
Swadhisthan Chakra contains only desires which may degrade the level of Kundalini Shakti. It
is very important to upgrade the Kundalini power from this stage. So, for upgrading your
spiritual and Kundalini Level Pranayam is very essential technique to be applied.
With the Pranayam, Sadhak should follow the three stages of breathing technique i.e. Purak,
Kumbhak & Rechak. Purak means to inhale the breath; Kumbhak means to hold the breath at
Swadhishthan Chakra, preventing the Kundalini Shakti from flowing downward and third one
is Rechak means to exhale the breath slowly.
Pranayam is very important to do at this stage. It helps the Kundalini Shakti from degrading
and it mobilizes in upward direction. When Kundalini mobilizes upward, Sadhak does not
become stimulated due to sensual desires. Sexual desire disappears and the divine radiance and
glow can be seen in the face of Sadhak.
If Sadhaks complexion contains divine glow, radiance and energy, it can be confirmed that the
Swadhishthan Chakra is being awakening.
Activation of Swadhishthan Chakra results in freedom from stomach ailments, Prostrate
glands disorders, increase in sex power, and cure of sexual debility, increase in courage and
fearlessness, magnetism and Sadhak will conquer over; Kaama, Krodha, Lobha & Moha.
On the weakness of this chakra, one will be the victim of Hernia, impotency, infertility, mental
disorder etc.
3. Manipur Chakra
The Manipura Chakra is the symbol of Fire or related to the Fire element. It is located just
opposite to the navel region in the Vertebral Column. Manipur Chakra is visualized as Red in
color and it is decorated with ten petals of lotus. The bij mantra of this red chakra is Ram ( ).
In Shaastra, Manipur Chakra is also honored as The Lord Vishnu or Paalankartaa (
Manipur Chakra has many salient features because it is located in the navel region and navel
region is the region from where the new life is originated. When baby develops in the womb
of mother, the baby is connected with the mother through the navel. When mother
inhales, baby also inhales through the navel. So, navel or Manipur cannot be considered as
ordinary thing. Thats why Manipur chakra is respected as Lord Vishnu, Srijankartaa.
According to Shaastra, the bunch of Lotus originated from the navel of Lord Vishnu and the
Lord Brahmaa originated from those lotuses. The awakening of this Manipur chakra is only
possible through Pranayam and Bhastrika jointly.
In this stage only Bhastrika is not enough to awake Kundalini Shakti. A special process should be
applied which Sadgurudev Paramhansa Swami Nikhileswaranand Maharaj can only provide
us i.e. to connect the Pranayam and Bhastrika with each other mutually. This process of
joining Bhastrika and Pranayam is highly secret. Only Sadgurudev can teach us how to connect
or join them in right proportion through which Manipur chakra activates or stimulates itself. On
the activation, the way of sacred bliss and pleasure is opened. Sadhak rapt within him and little
meditation can reach him to the Subconscious mind. He will be free from the desires. Sexual
desires will not attack him even he looks at the half-bared woman, because angle of his vision
will be changed, his power of thinking is changed. Activating this Chakra is considered as a
great Siddhi in Tantra.

4. Anahat Chakra
Anahata Chakra is related to Air element. The relative location of this Chakra is just opposite
to the Cardiac region (heart) inside the Vertebral Column. Anahat Chakra is visualized as
Smoke Colored and it is decorated with 12 petals of Lotus. The Beej Mantra of Anahat Chakra
is Yam. In Tantra Sadhana, Panchamkaar is worshipped by meditating on this Chakra during
Kundalini Awakening Process, due to which Anahat Chakra starts to awake and stimulate.
Anahat literally means No Noise or Peace of Mind. Anahat Chakra is located in Heart region
and heart is the main base of whole body. When Kundalini Shakti reaches at this Chakra, there
is the establishment of pleasure and peace in whole body, there wont exists any kind of worries
and unhappiness. The most important thing is that when Kundalini Shakti reaches to this
chakra, the way to the Universe will open and Sadhak will connect to the Universe. The
whole life (either it is Past or Future) of Sadhak will be clear. Sadhak can see his past lives
(Where he had born? Where was he in Past life? Who were his parents? How his life had
ended?). Not only this, Sadhak can see even his past lives before 25 births, when he reaches
to Anahat Chakra. Sadhak will gain the power to know the past and even he can see his future
(Where will be his birth? Who will be his parent? Etc)
Lord Rama, before the end of His life, he had already known that his birth will be in the form of
Lord Krishna after 2500 years. He had known through the Anahat Chakra that, after
visitation of the whole universe when and where His birth will be taken place.
On the activation of Anahat Chakra, Sadhak can decide whether he wants to take birth or not.
He can even choose the special womb of mother. He can even take birth after 20 years or after
500 years or after 2 seconds, according to his wish. An ordinary person does not possess
such ability to choose special womb.
He can see the Surya Lok, Chandra Lok and the radiance of divine knowledge disseminates in
his life. The new mystery of the Universe will be clear in front of him. He can link or attach the
divine knowledge of the universe within himself.
So, after awakening of Anahat Chakra, Sadhak can achieve different kinds of Siddhis and
divine knowledges from the universe. When he closes the eyes, he can even read the thoughts
and secrecies of anyone, he can reach anywhere (teleportation), he can see up to thousands
miles of distance because Anahat Chakra is itself the way of infinite possibilities.
Advantages of activation of Anahat Chakra are; total freedom from tensions, teleportation,
power to look past lives and future, power of hypnosis, entering into Samaadhi (a divine
trance) increase in soft emotions like love, affection and kindness, riddance from problems
related to heart, increase in will power etc.
5. Vishuddha Chakra
Vishuddha Chakra is related to ether or Sky element. This chakra is located opposite to the
throat region inside the Vertebral Column. This chakra is visualized as sky blue color in
meditation. Vishuddha Chakra is decorated with sixteen petals of lotus and the beej mantra of
this chakra is Ham. This Chakra is related with throat. Aakash or Sky is the God of this Chakra.
In this stage of Kundalini Jagaran, Sadhak should follow the instructions of capable Guru. Only
the Shaktipaat from Sadgurudev can awake Visuddha Chakra due to which Kundalini Shakti
rises upward. When Visuddha Chakra starts to activate, Goddess Saraswati sits on the throat of
Sadhak and She down-pour the infinite blessings on him. He gets the knowledge from Samveda
itself and Sholks starts to flow from his throat.
Hundreds and thousands of Upanishads get by hearted itself and there is need to memorize
and study the books because on the awakening of Vishuddha Chakra, the Goddess of all
Shaastras is being seated in the throat of Sadhak.
He can understand the soul and also Supreme Soul. The knowledge of entire Shaastras itself
arrives in the life of Sadhak. Vishuddha Chakra cannot be awakening itself. It is possible only
through the Shaktipaat of Sadgurudev. The big explosion occurs when Sadguru transfers His
part of energy on the Sadhak and Kundalini Shakti gets heated and reaches to Vishuddha

It is considered that only awakening of Vishuddha Chakra is proficient level and completeness
because when this chakra awakes, Sadhak can make his body free or transform his body.
Means he can transform his body size huge or small according to his wish. He can transform his
body smaller than smaller and bigger than bigger on his wish. He can transform his body even
height of 500 ft or even transform the body smaller than the atom, and he can visit entire
universe transforming his body to the Atom.
The Lord Krishna was divided in to hundreds of forms and appearance which is possible only
on the awakening of Vishuddha Chakra. So, awakening of Vishuddha Chakra is considered as
important and highest level of process which is only possible through the Shaktipaat from
On the activation of Vishuddha chakra Sadhak will be free from all kinds of ailments related to
throat and thyroid glands, gains Aakaash Gaman Siddhi, gains the power of eloquence, gains
the power to die on his wish, gains knowledge from entire Upanishads and Shaastras etc.
On the weakness of Vishuddha Chakra one will be the victim of dangerous diseases like; Cancer,
High blood pressure, tuberculosis, asthma, dumbness and deafness etc.
6. Aagya Chakra
In Brahma Nadi (enclosed by vertebral column) this Chakra is located just opposite the mid spot
between the two eyebrows. This white lotus has only two petals.
Also called the Third Eye its activation brings wondrous powers like clairvoyance, telepathy,
power of giving curses or blessings, instant fulfilment 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. Aagya chakra or Ajna Chakra is the seat of the mind. Aagya or Ajna Chakra is
also called as Third Eye. This is the Chakra where Ida, Pingala and Sushumna meet with each
other and make a crossing point. This Chakra is located just opposite the mid spot between the
two eyebrows in the Brahma Nadi enclosed by Vertebral Column. This chakra is visualized as
snow white Chakra while meditation. Aagya Chakra is decorated with two huge petals of
lotus. The two petals of lotus is the symbol of Prakriti and Purush. The beej Mantra of this
Chakra is Om. This is the Chakra where Sati had sacrificed her life on meditating on it and
she became the wife of Lord Shiva in second birth or life.
The main feature of this Chakra is that before the decades, human being was capable to see the
activities and incidents from the miles of distance, but on the activation of Aagya Chakra he can
interfere that incidents or accidents. It means Sadhak could only see the accidents happening in
some place but when Aagya Chakra awakes, he can teleport to that place in a second and
prevent the accident or he can rescue the victims from the accident. This is very important
feature of Ajna Chakra. Sadhak can change the activities happening in the universe, he can alter
anything happening in the world or universe.
Sadhak will able to change the life of anyone, he can provide the pleasures and bliss in anyones
life, he will also be capable to curse and bless anyone. Sadhak can make the person king from
the slum; he can make anybody great and fearless in his life.
This is possible only on the activation of Third Eye or Ajna Chakra, because he can achieve all
the spiritual and mysterious knowledge from the universe. Activation of this Chakra is itself a
proficient level in the life of Sadhak. This is the process of attaching himself to the Brahma.

On the activation of Aagya Chakra, brings wondrous powers like clairvoyance, telepathy,
power of giving curses or blessings, instant fulfillment of anything one wish, and gain of
knowledge related to all subjects and sciences, power to control thoughts of others and
interfere even in nature.
On the weakness of this Chakra, blockage of all the Nadis called Ida, Pingala and Sushumna,
failure of concentration on one thing, unhappiness, loss of will power, several diseases, etc.
7. Sahastrar Chakra
Sahasrara Chakra is located on the top of the head which is called Brahmarandhra, the abode
of Lord Shiva (Supreme Being). Sahasrara Chakra is also termed as Dasham Dwaar of
Brahmarandhra. The Spinal cord terminates at this point with thousand petals of Lotus giving
a structure of Crown Chakra facing downward corresponds to the Absolute. The Deity of this
Chakra is Parabrahma Parameshwar (Supreme God). This is a subtle centre in the brain.
When kundalini reaches this point, Sadhak attains Samadhi or Superconsciousness.

Sadhak attains Brahmaanda when Kundalini reaches to Sahashrara Chakra. He gets the
absolute bliss and pleasure by having the divine nectar from those thousand petals of Lotus. He
achieves absolute peace in his life. Whatever he gets and does, all becomes divine and
unparallel. He can build the matchless society and world. He can make a divine heaven in the
earth with the Divine knowledge that he got from the Sahasrara Chakra. He can bless anyone to
become immortal and he can be the immortal himself and can live for thousand years according
to his wish.
Sadhak gets the entrance to the Divine place called Siddhashram where Param Pujya
Sadgurudev Nikhileshwarand Maharaj is the Master of all the Sadhak and Shishyas. Only the
enlightened being can enter into the Siddhashram. The Kaal cannot stands besides the Sadhak.
It is said in the Upanishad, Mrityormaamritam Gamaya, i.e. Travel towards immortality
from death. It means the journey from Muladhara Chakra to Sahasrara Chakra (Kundalini
Yatra), which is possible only through the instructions and the right path from the Sadgurudev
because Sadguru is only the person who is Brahmamaya, who has already attains the absolute
pleasures and bliss by awakening Kundalini Shakti, his Sahasrara Chakra has been already
activated and have the divine knowledge to transform himself to the huge structure and smaller
and smaller than the atom. If Sadhak gets these types of Siddhis then he is called as Naad
because Brahma is called as Naad itself. The Sadhak is really fortunate who attains his divine
Guru. That person is fortunate who strives for Kundalini Awakening and the person is
called God-illumined who gets the totality in life after activating his Kundalini Shakti.
When the Kundalini Shakti unites itself with the Supreme Being (Lord Shiva), the Sadhak
attains deep meditation during which he perceives infinite bliss. On activation of Sahasrara a
very fine, elixir-like secretion is produced from it which permeates the whole body thus making
the Sadhak forever free of all diseases and ailments, he is liberated from corporeal bondages
and attachments and blessed with all kinds of divine attainments including 'Ashta Siddhi' and
'Nava Nidhi', He become emancipated from the cycles of birth and death and can envision any
event going on anywhere in the universe without entering into Samadhi.
One is fully enlightened and can then envision any event going on anywhere in the universe
without entering into Samadhi. All natural elements come under ones control.
The practice of awakening Kundalini Shakti must be done only under the guidance of a
competent Guru. Sometimes when the aspirant practices such exercises only after going
through some books, he endangers his own life and there are chances of his becoming insane.
Really, fortunate is the person who attains his divine Guru. That person is fortunate who strives
for awakening of the Kundalini Shakti and only that person is called God-illumined who after
activating his Kundalini Shakti, gets the totality of life.
Different ways of activation:
There are several means to this goal - through Mantra, through Diksha (or transfer of Divine
energy from Guru to disciple), Kriya Yog, Prannayam, Ras Vigyan (use of consecrated and
Samskarised mercury) and even Ayurvedic herbs and potions.
Yet the best way is of Mantra Sadhana for it is the safest and can be tried by anyone. When
Kundalini is activated there is a tremendous gush of energy which can cause great harm if not
properly channelized through the body. But the Mantra Sadhana process is a slow and steady
method totally free of such risk. Moreover this is done under the guidance of an accomplished
Guru who can fully control the Kundalini. In this Mantra process the six Chakras are activated
one at a time and there are seven stages of this Sadhana.
Whatever the mode of activation a Guru is a must for during the process as the divine powers in
the body come to life they attack the Sadhaks weaknesses like greed, jealousy, infatuation,
anger, false ego and other negative traits. Sometimes the struggle between these positive

(Kundalini) and negative energies can be so intense that a person may lose balance of mind or
his evil traits may appear so magnified to him that he may take to wrong ways in life.
But if there is a Guru guiding each step of the process the negative energies can never come out
on the top in this struggle. That is why the Guru also suggests Guru Mantra Sadhana for the
power of Guru is so strong that it can annihilate all evil traits of the Sadhak.
It is also important to note that there are different Mantras for the activation of six Chakras. One
may accomplish Sadhana pertaining to a Chakra and still not experience anything. Remember it
is not a miracle we are working. It is a slow and steady process and sometimes it is after some
months that suddenly one becomes aware of the activation of the concerned Chakra.
In truth after Sadhana the activation takes place when the Sadhak feels most purified and free of
his negative traits. One should hence continue with Sadhana of other Chakras even if no
immediate results seem forthcoming.
Sometimes two or three Chakras have been seen to be activated all of a sudden at one go.
How can Kundalini be activated?
The first step is taking Guru Diksha and later praying to the Guru for Kundalini Jagran Diksha
(Diksha for activation of the Kundalini). After this the Guru suggests certain Mantra Sadhanas
through which the Kundalini can be fully activated.
The six Sadhanas can be completed within a period of six months. It is not a rule that one can try
the Sadhana of the next Chakra only after the first one has been activated. One can complete all
the Sadhanas one after the other without waiting for results. Most of the times the Chakras get
activated several days after the completion of Sadhana , sometimes even two or three Chakras at
one go.
For details of Sadhanas and Kundalini Jagran Diksha contact our Jodhpur Gurudham or Delhi
Gurudham. The details are available on our website here.
Preparation for Activation:
Remember, one should never attempt such activation himself since such practices if performed
without being guided by a Guru create various problems. Once it so happened that a disciple of
mine gained some preliminary knowledge of this activation from me and then on returning back
to his home, he started trying to activate his Kundalini Shakti. But his Kundalini deviated from
the right course as a sequel to which, he started vomiting blood. In a state of terrible fear, he
rushed to me and with a great difficulty, through Yogic Sadhana; I stopped the vomiting of the
blood. Then he came to know that during his attempt, his Kundalini Shakti left the proper
direction which resulted in vomiting of the blood. By this incident it is clear that the Guru keeps
on watching the right course of Kundalini Shakti ascending in the body of a disciple and
therefore without a Guru, one should never attempt such practices.
Now I am revealing some fundamental practices for activation of Kundalini Shakti which every
aspirant should put to application1. First of all the aspirant should purify his body with the aid of Neti, Dhyoti and Vasti.
2. After that, the aspirant should practice eight kinds of Pranayam (Yogic exercises). He may also
practice some other Yogic exercises besides Pranayam.
3. Now the aspirant should learn from his Guru the essential mudras such as Mahamudra,
Mahavedha, Mahabandh, Viparitakarani, Taran, Paridhan, Yuktichalan and Shaktichalani.
4. The aspirant, having perfected all Yogic exercises should concentrate his psyche on 'Chakra'
according to the method of 'Raj Yog'.

Daily Routine 1. Get up at five in the morning.

2. Practice both kinds of Bhrastika Pranayam (fast breathing) five to twenty five times.
3. Practice both kinds of Shaktichalini Mudra five to ten times.
4. Practice Taran Mudra with four to hundred & one Pranayam.
5. Practice Praridhan Yukti Chalan Mudra.
6. At last perform mental exercises of activating 'Chakra'.
The morning time should be devoted to all such exercises. In case you are not able to have
ample time in the morning, you should exercise the following practices daily in the evening1. Mahamudra - Five to twenty five times on each leg.
2. Mahabandha - Five to twenty five times on each leg.
3. Mahavedh - Both kinds of Mahavedh five to ten times.
4. Viparitkarani Mudra - Five to ten times.
5. The rest part of the time should be utilised for practice of activating 'Chakra'.
The aspirant who practices regularly all the above mentioned exercises derives early success. At
an initial stage he may experience increased perspiration from his skin but gradually this
perspiration will diminish and then he will perceive a lightening sensation in his entire body.
After that he is likely to experience the movement of 'Pran Shakti' (life force) in the manner of
crawling of an ant. Then he will experience the upliftment of Kundalini Shakti and also the
activation of Muladhar Chakra.
When such a stage arrives, the aspirant while remaining in the company of Guru should practice
regularly because when the serpent power, crossing 'Muladhar Chakra' ascends upwards, it may
change its proper tract as a sequel to which some strange complaints associated with the blood
circulation may supervene. But there is no possibility of occurrence of such dangerous
situations provided one is acting as per the directive of his Sadguru.
At an advanced stage, when this life current enters the Sushumna, the aspirant may suffer from
a gripping sensation around his waist, chest or neck but in a situation like this, he need not
worry at all since this temporary bondage gets opened after few days' exercises.
