Kundalini is a Sanskrut word that means coil.
Every human has Kundalini, however, in most humans the Kundalini
lies dormant in the perineum, forming a 3½ circles coil.
Although most people are not aware that the Kundalini exists,
Kundalini is well-known by serious spiritual seekers. Most yog
traditions aim to awaken the Kundalini, because these yog traditions
believe that the Kundalini is the power that is required to attain
the ultimate goal of spiritual achievement, the union with divine
it is believed that after being awakened, Kundalini will be able
to remove the knots of the major chakras, cleanse, open and develop
the chakras until they are fully developed into full-blooming
lotus forms. By the time the Kundalini finishes opening, cleansing
and developing all of the chakras, the core of the Kundalini will
reach the crown chakra, the chakra at the top of the head. This
is the time you attain the highest spiritual achievement Yog.
However, it is
not so easy for someone to attain Yog. First, it is very hard
to awaken the Kundalini. Some people have spent decades of dedicated
practices without being able to awaken their Kundalini. It is
believed that only a few were really able to awaken their Kundalini.
For those who were lucky enough to have their Kundalini awakened,
the cleansing process of the Kundalini would still have taken
decades. Kundalini requires years to cleanse open and develop
a chakra completely, and the process is done in a bottom up in
sequential order. So, as the Kundalini starts at the lowest chakra
and spends a few years at this base chakra, it will take decades
before the Kundalini can start working at the crown chakra, the
7th chakra. In most cases, one will die before achieving the final
goal of the process since the time required is too long.
