An Introduction to Kundalini Yoga
One of the objectives of this Kundalini Yoga Site is to generate in the visitors enough interest in the Kundalini Yoga system, so that they explore other sources to expand their knowledge, and embark on a journey of self-discovery and enlightenment.
Kundalini Yoga is the highest form of yoga and all other forms of yoga are merely preparations of the mind and body for its practice. A focused and diligent practice of other forms of yoga will ultimately lead the practitioner in this direction, of its own accord, by raising their levels of consciousness. A knowledge of the powerful chakra system and practice of the Kundalini Yoga can bring enhanced physical health, emotional balance, improved functional abilities, orderly unfoldments of innate knowledge, personal power, creativity, heightened perception, heightened awareness, spontaneous emergence of cosmic conscious states and accelerated spiritual growth.
In yogic traditions there is a mention of three types of spaces: Mahakasha, Chittakasha and Chidakasha, all derivatives of the word akasha which means sky in Sanskrit. Mahakasha means the space outer to oneself. Then comes Chittakasha or Mental Space, which is the abode of all thoughts, dreams and imaginations. All experiences at this level are hallucinations when compared to genuine spiritual experiences. And finally, we have the Chidakasha or Knowledge Space, which is where all genuine spiritual experiences take place. The practice of Kundalini Yoga gives us access to this Chidakasha.
Kundalini Yoga is simply the most efficient method for balancing body, mind and spirit with the infinite nature of the Universe. Once the Kundalini energy is awakened and reaches the topmost chakra called the sahasrara the practitioner achieves spiritual enlightenment and experiences a state of joyfulness, which radiates in every aspect of their living.
Please note that it is generally not advisable to practice Kundalini Yoga without the guidance of a competent guru or teacher.
