    Seek only God; do not look for spiritual sensations, or Siddhis , or extraterrestrial adventures. Hand your life over to God and pray in this way: “Oh Lord, may Your will be done. May my destiny be fulfilled”.



    Chakras are psychic centres that lie along the axis of the spine as consciousness potentials. The chakras are not materially real and are to be understood as situated, not in the gross body, but in the subtle or etheric body. Repositories of psychic energies, they govern the whole condition of being. They are usually represented as lotuses.

    When kundalini is struck, she awakens, uncoils and begin to rise upwards like a fiery serpent, breaking upon each chakra as she ascends, until the Shakti merges with Shiva in sahasrara chakra.



    As kundalini reaches each chakra, that lotus opens and lift its flower; and as soon as she leaves for a higher chakra, the lotus closes its petals and hangs down, symbolizing the activation of the energies of the chakra and their assimilation to kundalini.

    The increasing number of lotus petals, in ascending order, may be taken to indicate the rising energy or vibration-frequencies of the respective chakras, each functioning as a transformer of energies from one potency to another.

    Each of the chakras, according to the Tantras, corresponds to one of the elements of which the known world is compounded. Muladhara represents solidity; Svadhisthana, liquidity; Manipura, the gaseous; Anahata, the aerial; Vishuddha, the etheric, or space. One can see the whole process as a progressive transformation of the elements, with an increase of volatility.

    Jesus christ telling people abt kundalini - from thomas gospel -->

    Jesus said to His disciples,
    "These infants being suckled are like those who enter the
    Kingdom."


    They said to Him, "Shall we then, as children, enter the
    Kingdom?"


    Jesus said to them, "When you make the two one, and when you
    make the inside like the outside and the outside like the inside,
    and the above like the below, and when you make the male and the
    female one and the same, so that the male not be male nor the
    female female; and when you fashion eyes in the place of an eye,
    and a hand in place of a hand, and a foot in place of a foot, and
    a likeness in place of a likeness; then will you enter [the
    Kingdom]."


    ****
    When Kundalini Shakti passes beyond Ajna (Third Eye), duality (male - female) and ego cease to exist. The gross elements of the individual dissolve into the pure elements of consciousness. The person then starts creating his environment consciously ..what is inside is outside

    In addition to kundalini, there is another energy that enters the body through the Crown Chakra (the top of your head) and flows down / through the spine to each individual chakra. It is a pure and divine vital energy. The archaic teachings in India call this energy, the god Shiva, whose mere presence initiates the transformation towards the Divine.

    Question: So the awakening of the kundalini does not mean that one is realising God?

    Sri Chinmoy: When one's kundalini is awakened, one becomes conscious of his inner psychic power, but this does not mean he is realising God. God-realisation is infinitely superior to the awakening of the kundalini and infinitely more fulfilling. When one's kundalini is awakened, one feels the inner vibration and inner power at his command. But this inner power does not mean the infinite Peace, Light and Bliss of the Supreme.

    *There is no need of destroying the ego for spiritual evolution, ego can be made divine, tolerance, compassion, unconditional love for all creatures and not caring of judgements of others towards you, forgivness makes the ego divine ..

    Negative Ego stands in the way of spiritual progress, selfishness, jealously, hate, lust for power for self interest. And interestingly, the negative ego can be well fortified by our own spiritual successes.

    The DANGERous Side

    If the kundalini power is uncontrolled, it often produces intense physical pain - it may tear tissue and even destroy physical life. But, strange as it may seem, these are the least of its evils - it can do permanent injury to vehicles higher than the physical.

    If awakened prematurely, one commone effect is that the kundalini power rushes downwards in the body instead of upward, exciting the most undesirable passions, making it impossible for the person to resist them. Such people become monsters of depravity. They may gain supernormal powers but they will be connected with the "lower" order of evolution, something that may take more than one incarnation to overcome.

    Other unpleasant possibilities involve the mental body. For example, ambition is quickly aroused which swells to an incredible degree. Ambition will rule your being! It may bring a great power of intellect but at the same time produce abnormal and satanic pride, inconceivable to the ordinary person.

    Kundalini is no ordinary energy. It is restless. Only under the guidance of a Master, who watches over them, should one attempt to awaken these tremendous forces. In the words of The Hathayoga Pradipika: "Kundalini power gives liberation to yogis, and bondage to fools."

    Sahasrara - Vishuddhi Chakra >> WHY GO VEG
    link11

    After death we move unavoidably into the astral level appropriate to our Karma. In the astral world we are fully aware of all events but are incapable of taking any action. We see our life running past us like a film. We recognise the mistakes of our earthly life, and also joyfully experience the bliss of divine light and divine love resulting from our spiritual progress and good actions. But there is no possibility whatsoever of any further resolution or intervention. The direction and goal of our journey is determined solely by the trend of our Karmas.

    Here the Jīvātmā follows one of three possible threads of destiny: Two lead to a new birth in the world of Māyā, and the third to Realisation and union with the Supreme Self.

    In the Bhagavad Gita (8/24-25) Lord Krishna explains the circumstances by which the soul comes to one of these paths.

    Anyone who still has some Karma adhering – good or bad – will take on a mortal body again. Those who in their earthly life load themselves largely with bad deeds, were unkind and lacked compassion for others will be born into an animal level of consciousness. With complete justification this can be described as “hell”. In an animal life form the ability of expression and development of the soul is greatly limited. It does not possess free will, intellect, speech or the capacity to reason. In this existence there is only a very small and slow development of consciousness; all karmas must be lived through over the pre-determined period, and be cleared away. But those whose good karmas predominated have the opportunity to aspire to human birth and liberation. In line with the ratio of good and bad karmas their existence is either happy or full of sorrow. The most beautiful fruit from existences which were full of good and noble actions, is a happy life enriched with numerous opportunities for development in a spiritual and peaceful environment.

    Those who finally attain liberation through knowledge and selfless deeds (Nishkāma Karma), and with the help of the Master and God’s grace are not born again – unless they voluntarily decide to return to the earth as a helper or a teacher.

    If we would like to live in a healthier way, nature must first recover – fields, meadows, forests, rivers, lakes and oceans. This is why Yogis value highly living a healthy lifestyle in harmony with nature and following a vegetarian diet. To live as a vegetarian is an ethical principle, a question of responsibility for all living beings. In the Bible it also says: “Thou shall not kill”; and this commandment does not exempt animals!

    With the help of the Vishuddhi Chakra we can rid ourselves of the toxic substances that are absorbed from the environment, as well as mental impurities. An important and life-supporting function of the Chakra is the purification and detoxification of harmful substances that accumulate in the body and primarily come from the food we eat and the air we breathe. This detoxification is brought about by Udāna Prāna, which has its seat in the throat. Udāna Prāna enables us to swallow. The food that is broken down by saliva is purified of toxic substances by this Prāna and is then passed on to the digestive system. An active Vishuddhi Chakra united with a strong Udāna Prāna contributes substantially to the preservation of health.

    Vivekananda showed the sincerity of his inner cry for Truth, for God, for Light. It happened once that Vivekananda who was then called Naren, was offered a significant gift by his spiritual Master, Sri Ramakrishna. Sri Ramakrishna said to him, "Naren, you know I have gone through the most austere spiritual disciplines. I constantly pray to Mother Kali and worship God. I have done everything necessary and now I am blessed with occult power. But you know that I don't care for any outer achievements. I pay no attention even to wearing clothes. I am in my own world most of the time. So I wish to tell Mother Kali that I would like to offer you all my occult power. You will be able to use it when you have to work for the world at large,

    Naren immediately replied, "Master, please tell me whether this power will be of any help to me in my God-realisation."

    Sri Ramakrishna said, "No, no! You know that occult power has nothing to do with God-realisation. But when you realise God, if you want to work for a while, if you want to manifest God on earth, then this power can be of great help to you."

    Naren's immediate response was, "First things first. First I want to realise God. Then if you and God want to give me occult power to use for mankind, I will take it. But right now I want only God. God comes first in my life."

    Ramakrishna was extremely pleased with his dearest disciple. He said to the other disciples, "Look at my Naren. Look at the example he has set for you. You have to pay all attention to God first, only to God. That is the only way you can realise God. Occult power is of very secondary importance."

    Most genuine spiritual Masters have advised their disciples not to care for the hidden powers of the kundalini. If a disciple cares only for Truth, only for Light, then he will make real progress in his inner life.

    We practise Kundalini Yoga in order to get power of one kind or another. But if we meditate on God and please God, the Creator, He will give us His entire creation if He wants to. If we want the Creator first and foremost, and not His creation, then we will get the Creator. And once we have the Creator, His entire creation will also be at our disposal. If we cry for one tiny part of the creation, we may get it with comparative ease; but the infinite Wealth of the Creator will be withheld from us and we will have to be satisfied with the tiny portion which we asked for.

    Tantra Kundalini


    According to the philosophy of Tantra, the entire universe is a manifestation of pure consciousness. In manifesting the universe, this pure consciousness seems to become divided into two poles or aspects, neither of which can exist without the other.

    One aspect, Shiva, is masculine, retains a static quality and remains identified with unmanifested consciousness. Shiva has the power to be but not the power to become or change.

    The other aspect, Shakti, is feminine, dynamic, energetic and creative. Shakti is the Great Mother of the universe, for it is from her that all form is born.

    According to Tantra, the human being is a miniature universe. All that is found in the cosmos can be found within each individual, and the same principles that apply to the universe apply in the case of the individual being.

    In human beings, Shakti, the feminine aspect is called Kundalini. This potential energy is said to rest at the base of the spinal cord. The object of the Tantric practice of Kundalini-yoga is to awaken this cosmic energy and make it ascend through the psychic centres, the chakras, that lie along the axis of the spine as consciousness potentials. She will then unite above the crown of the head with Shiva the pure consciousness. This union is the aim of Kundalini-yoga: a resolution of duality into unity again, a fusion with the Absolute. By this union the adept attains liberation while living which is considered in Indian life to be the highest experience: an union of the individual with the universe.

    In Tantrism the state of ultimate bliss is a transcendence of dualities male-female, energy-consciousness, Shiva-Shakti...

    The following excerpt is from Kundalini Yoga: The Mother Power, by Sri Chinmoy.

    Now let us start from the beginning: muladhara, the root chakra. When one has acquired mastery over the muladhara centre, one can become
    invisible at his sweet will. One can conquer all diseases. One can know
    whatever one wants to know and discover whatever one wants to discover.
    If one wants to discover God’s Compassion, God’s Light, God’s Love for
    him, then he is in a position to do so. But if one uses the same power
    in order to know what is happening in others’ minds or what is going on
    in their outer life, or if one uses it to discover out of curiosity if a
    third world war is going to break out, then this power is misused.
    When a person with mastery over the muladhara sees that someone has a
    particular disease, he has to know whether that individual deserves the
    disease or whether it is the result of a hostile attack. If he has done
    something wrong, naturally under the law of karma he deserves to pay
    the penalty. But if the disease is not from the law of karma but rather
    from the attack of some hostile force, and if it is God’s Will that his
    disease should be cured, then naturally a spiritual person who has the
    capacity should cure it. But if he does it at his own sweet will, or if
    he acts in an undivine way and just shows off, then he breaks the cosmic
    law. He will cure the person, but this very cure will act eventually
    against both the healer and the sick person. It will add to their
    ignorant and self-destructive quality. So the healer has to know if it
    is the Will of God that the person be cured. Only then will he cure;
    otherwise he has to remain silent and do nothing. You may ask, how can
    he see somebody else suffering and still do nothing? If his heart is
    very big, let him go deep within and see who it is that is suffering in
    and through the individual. He will see that it is God who is purposely
    having a special experience in and through that person.

    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


    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.

    Activation of this results in riddance from tensions, true happiness, beauty, perfect health and physical strength, magnetic persona.


    2. Swadhishtthan Chakra

    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.

    Activation of this results in freedom from stomach ailments, increase in sex power, and cure of sexual debility, increase in courage and fearlessness and magnetism.


    3. Manipur Chakra

    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.


    4. Anahat Chakra


    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 vibrating.

    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.


    5. Vishuddha Chakra

    Inside the vertebral column this Chakra is located opposite the throat region. This lotus of smoky colour possesses sixteen petals and it represents the sky element.

    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.


    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 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.


    7. Crown Chakra - Sahasrana

    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 bliss.

    This is a subtle centre in the brain. On activation of Crown Chakra - Sahasrana a very fine, elixir-like secretion is produced from it which permeates the whole body thus making the human forever free of all ailments.

    Crown Chakra - Sahasrana 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 Crown Chakra - Sahasrana 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.

    One is fully enlightened and can then envision any event going on anywhere in the universe with out entering into Samadhi. All natural elements come under one’s 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.

    Prana and the Power of the Chakra

    Kundalini Yoga is the Yoga of prana. Prana is the life-energy or life-principle of the universe. There are three principal channels through which this life-energy flows. These channels are ida, pingala and sushumna. In Sanskrit these channels are called nadis. Ida, pingala and sushumna are inside our subtle physical body, not inside the gross physical. Ida carries the current of life-energy in the left side of the body. Pingala carries the current in the right side of the body. Sushumna carries the current in the middle of the spinal column. Sushumna is the most important of the three nadis. It receives a ceaseless stream of life-energy from the universal Consciousness-light. There is an inner connection between ida and pingala and the zodiac and planets. Ida has a special connection with the moon and the planet Mercury; hence its main quality is coolness and mildness. Pingala is connected with the sun and Mars hence its quality is powerful and dynamic heat.

    Ida rules the left nostril. Pingala rules the right nostril. When we breathe in and out primarily through our left nostril, we have to know that it is ida that is functioning. When we breathe in and out through our right nostril, it is pingala that is functioning. And when both of our nostrils are functioning satisfactorily, we have to know that it is sushumna that is playing its role. It also happens at times that ida breathes in and pingala breathes out.

    Ida, pingala and sushumna meet together at six different places. Each meeting place forms a centre and each centre is round like a wheel. Indian spiritual philosophy calls these centres chakras. They are also called lotuses, because they look like the lotus flower. The six centres, as perhaps you know, are muladhara, svadhisthana, manipura, anahata, vishuddha and ajna. There is also another chakra that is inside the brain, called sahasrara. Because it is in the brain, and not along the spinal column, it is not counted with the other six centres. Apart from these six, there are many other chakras in the subtle physical body. Here in the knee we have a chakra; even in the toes and the fingertips we have chakras. But these chakras are minor and are not usually mentioned.

    The root chakra, or the lotus muladhara, has four petals, which are red and orange in colour. The spleen chakra, svadhisthana, has six petals. The petals are orange, blue, green, yellow, violet and blood-red. Blood-red is the most prominent colour in this chakra. The navel chakra, manipura, has ten petals. They are pink, orange and green, but primarily green. The heart chakra, anahata, has twelve petals. Here the colour is bright golden. The throat centre, the vishuddha lotus, has sixteen petals. Blue and green are the colours. The brow centre, ajna, has only two petals. But inside each petal there are forty-eight petals. Here the colour is rose. The crown centre, sahasrara, has 1,000 petals, or to be more precise, 972. It has all the colours, but the violet colour is predominant.

    The universal Consciousness embodies universal Music. From each chakra, where the life-energy from the universal Consciousness gathers, a musical note is produced. From sahasrara the tone of shadja or sa is produced. In western music, you call this 'do'. From ajna, rishava or ri is produced: what you call 're'. From vishuddha, gandhara or ga is produced: what you call 'mi'. From anahata, madhyama or ma is produced: what you call 'fa'. From manipura, panchama or pa is produced: what you call 'so'. From svadhisthana, dhaivata or dha is produced: what you call 'la'. From muladhara, nishada or ni is produced: what you call 'ti'.

    There are seven worlds corresponding to the seven chakras. Muladhara corresponds to Bhurloka; svadhisthana corresponds to Bhubarloka; manipura corresponds to Svarloka; anahata corresponds to Janaloka, vishuddha corresponds to Tapoloka; ajna corresponds to Maharloka; and sahasrara corresponds to Satyaloka. Each world is symbolised by something. Bhurloka is symbolised by earth, Bhubarloka by water, Svarloka by heat, Janaloka by air, Tapoloka by ether, Maharloka by energy, and Satyaloka by infinite space.

    For each centre there is a special Mother-Power, which is a manifestation of the Supreme Mother. These Mother-Powers are known as Brahmi, Parameshwari, Kaumari, Vaishnavi, Varahi, Indrani and Chamunda. Each one has a special place of her own. Brahmi is the Mother-Power that embodies and pervades the infinite space. She rules all the chakras. Brahmi stays in the sahasrara, or brain chakra, which is the thousand-petaled lotus. From there she rules the centres that are below her: ajna, vishuddha, anahata, manipura, svadhisthana and muladhara. Parameshwari is located in the ajna chakra, the brow centre. There she rules ajna and the chakras that are below her. Kaumari is located in vishuddha, the throat centre, and rules vishuddha and the chakras below her. Vaishnavi begins functioning from anahata, the heart centre, and rules the others below. Varahi, who stays in the navel centre, rules the lower planes: manipura, svadhisthana and muladhara. Indrani rules svadhisthana, at the spleen, and muladhara, at the base of the spine. And Chamunda rules only over muladhara.

    Each centre also has a presiding deity, a cosmic god. Brahma is the presiding deity of muladhara; Rudra is the presiding deity of svadhisthana; Vishnu, of manipura; Ishwara, of anahata; Sadashiva, of vishuddha, Shambhu, of ajna; and Paramashiva is the presiding deity of sahasrara.

    These centres can be opened in various ways. The usual method for those who practise Kundalini Yoga is to concentrate firmly on each centre, invoking the Mother-Power or the presiding deity most soulfully. However, all real spiritual Masters, from the very depth of their experience, say that it is better to open the heart centre first and then try to open the other centres. If one opens the heart centre first, there is practically no risk. But if one starts with the muladhara or svadhisthana or ajna chakra, it is very dangerous. Again, there are some seekers who do not follow this method at all. They do not care for occult power; they care only for God's Love, Light and Truth, They learn how to meditate most soulfully; and when they make considerable progress in their meditation, these centres open automatically. And through the Grace of the Absolute Supreme, these centres may open even without meditation.

    If these centres are opened without proper purification, the seeker will encounter great pain. It will be like playing with fire or a sharp knife. He may destroy others or he may himself be destroyed. We have to know that the miraculous powers that one gets when his centres are opened are not actually miraculous or unusual at all in the inner world. The powers that the centres hold are absolutely normal. In the inner world these powers are constantly used by spiritual Masters. There in the inner world they are normal and natural. Only when they are used on the physical plane do they seem unusual or miraculous.

    Any real spiritual Master will have these powers. But again, one need not be a spiritual Master of the highest order in order to have them. One need not be even a great seeker. Even someone who leads a normal, ordinary, undivine life can develop these powers.

    In India I came across a few seekers -- I cannot call them sincere seekers -- who had some occult or kundalini power. But most of the time they misused it. They opened their third eye in order to know what their girlfriends were thinking of them. Now this is ridiculous. The same third eye they could have used to destroy their dark, obscure, impure thoughts. They had the capacity, but they didn't use it. I also know someone who used his occult power to threaten his enemies at night and compel them to do whatever he wanted them to do the following morning. By using his occult power, his third eye, he made his enemies his slaves. But he could have used his third eye to know God's Will in his own life and in others' lives. If it had been God's Will to expedite somebody's spiritual progress, then he could have used his third eye to help. Each centre has something special to offer when it is properly used. It becomes a veritable boon to the Inner Pilot and to all mankind.

    I want to make it very clear that the opening of the centres does not mean that one is realising God or that he is about to realise God. The opening of the centres is not necessarily the precursor of God-realisation. No, not at all! God-realisation has nothing to do with the opening of the centres. No matter how many centres one has opened, even if one has opened all the seven centres, it does not indicate that one is on the verge of realisation or that one is realised. From the highest spiritual point of view, the opening of the chakras is like the games a mother plays with her children in the playground. Children are fond of games and the mother is showing her capacity. It is not her pride, her vanity. No. It is just that the mother knows this will amuse the children. She can give some joy, some pleasure to the children, so she plays these games. It is usually Lord Shiva on the sahasrara plane and his consort, Shivani from the muladhara plane, where the kundalini is fast asleep, who play. When they play with their children in the inner world, the occult powers start functioning.

    Now let us start from the beginning: muladhara, the root chakra. When one has acquired mastery over the muladhara centre, one can become invisible at his sweet will. One can conquer all diseases. One can know whatever one wants to know and discover whatever one wants to discover. If one wants to discover God's Compassion, God's Light, God's Love for him, then he is in a position to do so. But if one uses the same power in order to know what is happening in others' minds or what is going on in their outer life, or if one uses it to discover out of curiosity if a third world war is going to break out, then this power is misused.

    When a person with mastery over the muladhara sees that someone has a particular disease, he has to know whether that individual deserves the disease or whether it is the result of a hostile attack. If he has done something wrong, naturally under the law of karma he deserves to pay the penalty. But if the disease is not from the law of karma but rather from the attack of some hostile force, and if it is God's Will that his disease should be cured, then naturally a spiritual person who has the capacity should cure it. But if he does it at his own sweet will, or if he acts in an undivine way and just shows off, then he breaks the cosmic law. He will cure the person, but this very cure will act eventually against both the healer and the sick person. It will add to their ignorant and self-destructive quality. So the healer has to know if it is the Will of God that the person be cured. Only then will he cure; otherwise he has to remain silent and do nothing. You may ask, how can he see somebody else suffering and still do nothing? If his heart is very big, let him go deep within and see who it is that is suffering in and through the individual. He will see that it is God who is purposely having a special experience in and through that person.

    Svadhisthana, the spleen chakra. When one has mastery over svadhisthana, one acquires the power of love. He loves everyone and he is loved by everyone: by men and women and by animals. It is here that people very often fall from the path of Light and Truth. Divine love is expansion and expansion is illumination. Love can be expressed as an expansion of our divine awareness or it can be expressed as pleasure. When the svadhisthana centre is opened, the lower vital, the sex forces will try to lower the consciousness of the seeker. But if at that time he can bring down abundant purity from the anahata centre, the heart centre, then this impurity will be transformed into purity. And purity is eventually transformed into ever-fulfilling and everlasting divinity. But if he cannot bring down purity, then there is real destruction, destruction of the seeker's life. The lower vital acts most vehemently and powerfully and sometimes it becomes worse than the lower vital in ordinary human beings. An ordinary human being does not enjoy the vital life the way some seekers enjoy it after opening their svadhisthana centre.

    Manipura, the navel chakra. If one acquires mastery over this centre, one conquers sorrow and suffering. No matter what happens in his life, he will not feel sad or miserable. But this centre can create a problem like the svadhisthana chakra. This centre is also dangerous. One can create suffering for others if one misuses the power from the manipura chakra and he will thereby incur the world's curse. This centre, like the ajna chakra, can show the seeker where a relative or dear one has gone after he dies. It lets one see how the person is passing through the vital world and entering into the subtle world and the higher planes. It shows how he passes from one sheath to another after death. This centre also gives one the power of transmutation. One can magnify an object or one can reduce it to an infinitesimal size. In addition, this centre has healing power. As I said before, if one can use this power properly, in accordance with the Will of God, then it is a real blessing. Otherwise it is a curse.

    Anahata, the heart centre. Here the power is unbelievable. A seeker with mastery over the anahata centre has free access to both the visible and the invisible worlds. Time surrenders to him; space surrenders to him. If he uses this centre, he can travel to any part of the world in a few seconds in his subtle body. But if he does this, he takes a great risk, Suppose he wants to travel occultly and spiritually to Europe to see what is happening there. If he does not get the proper sanction from the other centres, or if the other centres do not cooperate, then the other centres may not allow the soul to come back to the body after its journey. In India, I know of quite a few cases where Yogis leave their bodies through the heart centre without taking help or getting permission and without even informing the other centres. They feel that the other centres do not have the same special capacity as the heart centre and so they should use the heart centre. Then the other centres become jealous. Jealousy is everywhere, in the outer world and in the inner world as well. Even the cosmic gods enjoy jealousy. So the other centres, because they are jealous, do not let the soul come back. If one uses this power, one has to take permission from the Inner Pilot first. If the Inner Pilot sanctions it, then the other centres cannot do any harm, since the Inner Pilot has infinitely more power than these centres.

    In the anahata centre, one can enjoy the deepest bliss of oneness; one can have pure Joy. Any person can look at a flower and get joy, but the intensity of joy that the flower embodies we cannot all enjoy. But if one opens the heart centre and looks at a flower, immediately all the joy, all the beauty that the flower has will become his. If the seeker looks at the vast ocean, inside his heart he is bound to feel the vast ocean. He looks at the vast sky and he enters into the sky, he becomes the sky. Anything vast, pure, divine, sublime that he sees, he can immediately feel as his very own and he can become that thing. There is no yawning gulf between what he sees and what he is. He just becomes in his consciousness what he sees.

    This is not his imagination. Far from it! His heart is a divine heart which embodies the universal Consciousness. The spiritual heart is not the heart that we find in our physical body. The spiritual heart is larger than the largest, it is larger than the universal Consciousness itself. We always say that there cannot be anything superior to the universal Consciousness, but this is a mistake. The heart the spiritual heart, houses the universal Consciousness. This centre is very safe when we use it to identify ourselves with the vast, with the beauty of nature. But when we use it to travel outside the limitations of the body, we take a risk.

    Vishuddha, the throat chakra. He who has mastery over vishuddha has the capacity to offer divine messages to the world. Universal nature discloses its agelong hidden mysteries to him. Here nature bows to the seeker. He can retain eternal youth. The outer world surrenders to him. The inner world embraces him. We get messages from various planes of consciousness. But when one gets a message from the vishuddha centre, the message is sublime and everlasting. When this centre is open, one receives direct messages from the Highest and becomes a mouthpiece for the Highest. One becomes a poet, a singer or an artist. All forms of art are expressed from this centre. This centre is open in many individuals. It functions according to the degree to which it is open, according to one's development. There is very little risk in this centre. It is a mild centre; it does not interfere with other centres and the other centres leave it alone.

    Ajna, the brow chakra. He who has mastery over the ajna chakra destroys his dark past, hastens the golden future and manifests the present in a supremely fulfilling way. His psychic and occult powers defy all limits; they are endless. The ajna chakra, which is located between and a little above the eyebrows, is the most powerful centre. The first thing one does when his third eye opens, if it is opened properly, is to destroy the unlit, unaspiring and undivine past. Now we see something and we have an experience. But there is a difference between our experience and the thing that we are experiencing. When the ajna centre is opened, however, we experience the thing itself. We become one with the thing that we are experiencing. At that time, seeing and becoming go together. Seeing itself is becoming and becoming is seeing. For this reason the aspirant who has opened his third eye wants to destroy the past from his memory. In this incarnation suppose one has become a Yogi. When he looks back to his previous incarnation, he sees that he was a thief, or something worse. Since he does not now want to enter into that experience again, he will try to destroy that part of his past. He now has the necessary power.

    When one realises God, the past is automatically deleted. As I said before, when one opens the third eye or any other centre, it does not mean that one has realised God. When one realises God, the obscure, impure or undivine past is illumined and nullified all at once. At the moment of God-realisation, illumination takes place. It is like coming out of a dark room into an illumined room. It becomes light where before it was all dark. God-realisation is immediate illumination.

    With the ajna chakra, the past can be nullified and the future can be brought into the immediacy of today. If one knows that ten years from now he is going to do something, achieve something or grow into something, then by using the third eye he can achieve that very thing today. He does not have to wait for ten, fifteen, twenty years.

    But if one brings the future result to the fore, this can sometimes be dangerous. It has happened many, many times that the future of an individual is very bright, very luminous. But when the future is brought right into the immediacy of the present, the enormity of the result puzzles and frightens the seeker. The seeker is like a young elephant. He is growing in strength and in ten years he will be very powerful. But if the power comes right now, there may be no receptivity, no inner receptivity. The power comes, but it cannot be brought under control or it cannot be contained in a safe vessel. At that time power itself acts like an enemy and destroys the person who invoked it. So there is a great danger when one takes the future and brings it into the present.

    Let the present grow and play its role. The past has played its role; now the present wants to play its role. Only in some cases, when God wants a seeker to make very fast progress, instead of going systematically he can run extremely fast. It is just like the situation of a student in school. Sometimes a student does not go through all the grades of kindergarten, primary school and high school. Sometimes he skips grades. In the spiritual life also, if it is God's Will that the future be brought into the present, then there is no danger. But otherwise there is great danger.

    With the third eye, one can accomplish much. The third eye has what God, the ultimate Power, is. If the ultimate Power is misused by the third eye, then it is all destruction. But if the third eye uses the ultimate, transcendental Power properly and divinely, then it will be a great blessing, the greatest blessing that humanity can imagine.

    Sahasrara, the crown chakra. The sahasrara is the silent one which does not interfere in anything. It is like the eldest member in the family: it does not bother anyone and does not want to be bothered by anyone. When this centre is opened permanently, one enjoys infinite Bliss and becomes inseparably one with the ever-transcending Beyond, One comes to know that he is birthless and deathless. He is always dealing with Infinity, Eternity and Immortality. These are not vague terms for him; they are all reality. This moment he sees himself as Eternity and he grows into Eternity: the next moment he sees himself as Infinity and he grows into Infinity; a few moments later he sees himself as Immortality and grows into Immortality in his consciousness. And at times it happens that Infinity, Eternity and Immortality all go together in his consciousness.

    When the sahasrara chakra is open, the Inner Pilot becomes a true friend. Here the Infinite and His chosen son become very good friends to fulfil a specific mission for their mutual manifestation. They share many secrets, millions of secrets, in the twinkling of an eye. On the one hand Father and son are enjoying infinite Peace and Bliss; on the other hand they are discussing world problems, universal problems, all in the twinkling of an eye. But their problems are not problems as such. Their problems are only experiences in their cosmic game.

    Of all the centres, the highest, the most peaceful, the most soulful, the most fruitful is sahasrara. There Infinity, Eternity and Immortality have become one. The Source becomes one with the creation, and the creation becomes one with the Source. Here the knower and the Known, the lover and the Beloved, the slave and the Master, the son and the Father, all become one. Together the Creator and the creation transcend their Dream and Reality. Their Dream makes them feel what they are and their Reality makes them feel what they can do. Reality and Dream become one.

    Moksha Gita

    by Swami Sivananda
    Commentary by Swami Krishnananda

    Chapter 9: The Five Sheaths

    09_01

    1, 2. The Guru said: This Annamaya sheath or good sheath is made up of the five elements. It has a beginning and an end. It is inert and full of parts. It is an effect of the five elements. It is full of impurities. Therefore you are not this physical body or the Annamaya sheath. You are the witness of this body. Understand, therefore, "I am not the body. I am Brahman."

    The physical body is the grossest form of thought. The food consumed by the parents is converted into Sukla (semen) in men and Sonita in women and by the combination of these the physical body is formed. After birth, the body grows by suckling the milk which is only a transformation of the food consumed by the mother. The body is further developed by taking food. It gets dissolved in earth which is another form of food. The body is itself a food for other creatures. Hence it is called the food sheath, the material body or the earthly encagement of the soul. The food sheath is an object of perception. The Atman is the cogniser and the body is the cognised. Hence the Self is different from the body. In dream and deep sleep there is no consciousness of the body.

    The five elements constitute the physical body. These modifications of Maya are not the Truth, the body and its Dharmas, size, form, birth and death are not actual modifications of the Self. Varnashrama, name and class differ in different births. They are mere accidental attributes of the body. There is no physical body either before birth or after death. Hence it is non-eternal.

    Existence, birth, growth, modification, decay and death are the six Vikaras of the physical body. Just as the ether in a pot is not affected in any way by the destruction of the pot, so also the Atman is not at all affected by the destruction of the body or the Annamaya Kosha. Atman is unattached. Ether is subtle, but the Atman is still subtler. Atman is formless, changeless, birthless, deathless, free from old age. It is neither born nor is killed. Hence one should meditate on this Atman or Brahman.

    09_02

    3, 4. The Pranamaya Kosha or the vital sheath is a product of Rajoguna. It also has a beginning and an end. It is inert. It is an effect. Therefore you are not the Pranamaya Kosha. You are the witness of this sheath. Understand, therefore, "I am not the Pranamaya Kosha. I am Brahman."

    The Pranamaya Kosha consists of the five Pranas and five Karma-Indriyas or organs of action. Though the Prana is waking when one is sleeping, it does not invite a friend and entertain him; it cannot stop a thief who tries to remove the articles in a house. Therefore it is insentient. The Self is a mass of Intelligence. It is Chaitanya-Swarupa. It is entirely different from the Prana. The Self is the knower, seer and witness of this sheath.

    Prana is only the active working of the mind. A pure-hearted man breathes rhythmically. The breath of an evil-minded person is disturbed. When the mind is controlled the Prana is automatically controlled. The Vedantic aspirant does not practise Pranayama, because his breath is automatically regulated and Kumbhaka naturally follows when the mental Kumbhaka or concentration and meditation are practised. The Pranas are the Rajasic manifestations of the dynamic mental force which with their ups and downs maintain the balance of individual existence even as the bicycle is kept in balance when its wheels are vigorously turning. When there is a break of this movement, the bicycle falls down and when the Prana is inhibited the individualising mind together with the ego breaks down and dies.

    Hence there should be no identification with the Pranamaya Kosha and the aspirant should assert the Self-existent Atman distinct from it.

    09_03

    5, 6. The Manomaya Kosha or the mental sheath is a product of Sattwa Guna. It also has a beginning and an end. It is inert. It is an effect. Therefore you are not the Manomaya Kosha. You are the witness of this sheath. Understand, therefore, "I am not Manomaya Kosha. I am Brahman."

    The Manomaya Kosha consists of the mind and the five Jnana Indriyas. It is a means of enjoying pleasure and pain. The mind causes egoism in the body and "mine"-ness in house, sons, wife, wealth, etc., and passes outside through the avenues or channels of these five Indriyas. It is the internal instrument for gaining the experiences and knowledge of this world. Mind is associated with the Vrittis or waves of lust, anger, etc., and is a terrible objectifying agent. Mind is a Vikari, it constantly changes itself.

    The Self is a witness of the Manomaya Kosha. The Self is Nirvikari. The mind is not the Self. The Self is the Atman or Brahman, unblemished, eternal and changeless, and one should meditate on it as such.

    09_04

    7, 8. The Vijnanamaya Kosha or this Buddhi sheath is a product of Sattwa Guna. It has also a beginning and an end. It is inert. It is an effect. Therefore you are not the Vijnanamaya Kosha. You are witness of this sheath. Understand, therefore, "I am not the Vijnanamaya Kosha. I am Brahman."

    The Vijnanamaya Kosha consists of the intellect in conjunction with the five organs of knowledge or the Jnana-Indriyas. During sleep it gets involution or Laya along with Chidabhasa or the reflection of Pure Consciousness. During waking state it is the doer. It is an effect like a jar and is inanimate. It shines in borrowed feathers. It borrows its light temporarily from its source, just as the moon borrows its light from the sun. It is not the eternal Self.

    The Pranamaya, Manomaya and the Vijnanamaya Koshas constitute the subtle body. The subtle body is composed of the five unquintuplicated elements. There is neither breathing nor talking, neither seeing nor hearing in the dead body. There is also no warmth. The self-cognitions such as "I speak; I hear; I am hungry; I am thirsty;" and the like appear distinctly in the subtle body. The subtle body operates in the waking and the dreaming states. Ghosts and apparitions are the manifestations of the subtle body only.

    The ego is hidden in the intellect and the memory (Chitta) is hidden in the mind. The subtle body thus, contains nineteen principles or Tattwas. It is also called the "Puri-Ashtaka" or the eightfold city. The five organs of sense, the five organs of action, the five vital breaths, the five subtle primary elements, the fourfold Antahkarana, ignorance, desire and action are the eightfold city of the subtle body.

    The physical body is only an instrument in the hands of the subtle body. When the subtle body is disciplined through Pranayama, abstraction and concentration, the physical body also becomes very healthy and strong. Whatever the subtle body is, that the physical body also becomes. The mind which is the ruler of the subtle body gets fattened by worldly affections, by avarice for wealth, by the acquirement of women and gold and by attachment to the external fleeting forms of beauties. The mind is thinned out by eradication of the Vasanas and egoism.

    The subtle body is the distracted expression of the self through Avidya, the causal sheath. Therefore it is not the Truth. Truth is Brahman and all else is false. One should meditate that he is not the subtle body and that he is the self-effulgent Atman.

    09_05

    9, 10. The Anandamaya Kosha or this bliss sheath is Avidya or ignorance, a modification of Prakriti. It is the effect of past deeds. It is endowed with changing attributes. It is Jada or insentient. Therefore you are not the Anandamaya Kosha. You are the witness of this sheath. Understand, therefore, "I am not the Anandamaya sheath. I am Brahman."

    The Anandamaya Kosha is made of Mula-Ajnana. It is the Karana Sarira or the causal body which is the substratum of all other sheaths which are external to it. Its three attributes or Dharmas are Priya, Moda and Pramoda, affection, delight and intense happiness. It is the indescribable beginningless Avidya, the nescience of the Atma, and is composed of Malina Sattwa. It is inanimate, beginningless, but has an end in Atma-Jnana.

    The ignorance of the real nature of the Self constitutes this causal body or seed-body. It contains the potentialities or the seeds for the subtle and gross bodies. It projects the appearance of the whole universe through the subtle sheath. It is the food of ignorance for the hungry ego. The mind has come out of this ignorance and gets involved in it during deep sleep. In the sleeping state there is a vigorous functioning of this ignorance in which everything is lost as in pitch darkness. The Karana Sarira screens the Satchidananda Brahman.

    He who knows the ignorance or the negation of the existence of the Atman and the denial of its appearance is the true Self, the Atman. He who knows the effects of ignorance, such as "I am a man, I am the doer and enjoyer, I am happy, I am miserable," is the witness and the Atman. Hence in reality the Self is the seer, knower and the witness of the causal body or the ignorance. The Self is the Knowledge and the Light itself.

    As the light that enlightens the jar is different from it, so is the Self different from the bodies witnessed by it. Therefore the Self is Consciousness itself and not the bodies.

    The aspirant should endeavour to rise above the five Koshas to realise the identity with Pure Consciousness. Just as one draws out the thin stalk from the Munja grass by stripping off its upper layers one by one, so also one should take out the innermost essence of the Atman from all objects of perception, i.e. the five Koshas, by the "neti, neti" doctrine of negating unreality. Just as butter is removed from milk by churning the mixture of curd, so also the butter of the Atman should be taken from the mixture of the five Koshas by the churning of constant meditation on the Immortal Brahman which fictitiously appears as the sheaths, the world, etc. When the identification with the sheaths ceases, the self realises the Infinite Being and gets liberated beyond death.

    Spinning Wheels of Consciousness


    Piercing the chakras that are multi-petalled -- four, six, ten, twelve and sixteen -- behold then the twin petalled ajna center. You have indeed arrived at the holy feet of the timeless, causeless One.

    Tirumantiram 1704


    Muladhara, the Realm of Memory

    The chakras do not awaken. They are already awakened in everyone. It only seems as if they awaken as we become aware of flowing our energy through them, because energy, willpower and awareness are one and the same thing. To become conscious of the core of energy itself, all we have to do is detach awareness from the realms of reason, memory and aggressive, intellectual will. Then, turning inward, we move from one chakra to another. The physical body changes as these more refined energies flow through it and the inner nerve system, called nadis, inwardly becomes stronger and stronger. The muladhara chakra is the memory center, located at the base of the spine, and is physically associated with the sacral or pelvic nerve plexus. Mula means "root" and adhara means "support," so this is called the root chakra. Its color is red. It governs the realms of time and memory, creating a consciousness of time through the powers of memory. Whenever we go back in our memory patterns, we are using the forces of the muladhara.

    This chakra is associated also with human qualities of individuality, egoism, materialism and dominance. Man lives mostly in this chakra during the first seven years of life. This center has four "petals" or aspects, one of which governs memories of past lives. The other three contain the compiled memory patterns and interrelated karmas of this life. When this chakra is developed, people are able to travel on the astral plane. It is complete within itself, but when the first two chakras are charged with gross, instinctive impulses and developed through Western education, with its values and foibles which contradict Hindu dharma, they can create together a very strong odic force which, when propelled by the worldly will of the third chakra toward outer success and power, can dominate the mind and make it nearly impossible for awareness to function in the higher force centers, so great is the material magnetism. Men living fully in these lower three chakras therefore say that God is above them, not knowing that "above" is their own head and they are living "below," near the base of the spine.

    The Seven Kundalini Chakras

    The following excerpt is from Kundalini Yoga: The Mother Power, by Sri Chinmoy.

    Now let us start from the beginning: muladhara, the root chakra. When one has acquired mastery over the muladhara centre, one can become
    invisible at his sweet will. One can conquer all diseases. One can know
    whatever one wants to know and discover whatever one wants to discover.
    If one wants to discover God’s Compassion, God’s Light, God’s Love for
    him, then he is in a position to do so. But if one uses the same power
    in order to know what is happening in others’ minds or what is going on
    in their outer life, or if one uses it to discover out of curiosity if a
    third world war is going to break out, then this power is misused.
    When a person with mastery over the muladhara sees that someone has a
    particular disease, he has to know whether that individual deserves the
    disease or whether it is the result of a hostile attack. If he has done
    something wrong, naturally under the law of karma he deserves to pay
    the penalty. But if the disease is not from the law of karma but rather
    from the attack of some hostile force, and if it is God’s Will that his
    disease should be cured, then naturally a spiritual person who has the
    capacity should cure it. But if he does it at his own sweet will, or if
    he acts in an undivine way and just shows off, then he breaks the cosmic
    law. He will cure the person, but this very cure will act eventually
    against both the healer and the sick person. It will add to their
    ignorant and self-destructive quality. So the healer has to know if it
    is the Will of God that the person be cured. Only then will he cure;
    otherwise he has to remain silent and do nothing. You may ask, how can
    he see somebody else suffering and still do nothing? If his heart is
    very big, let him go deep within and see who it is that is suffering in
    and through the individual. He will see that it is God who is purposely
    having a special experience in and through that person.

    Svadhisthana, the spleen chakra. When one has mastery over svadhisthana, one acquires the power of love. He loves everyone and he
    is loved by everyone: by men and women and by animals. It is here that
    people very often fall from the path of Light and Truth. Divine love is
    expansion and expansion is illumination. Love can be expressed as an
    expansion of our divine awareness or it can be expressed as pleasure.
    When the svadhisthana centre is opened, the lower vital, the sex forces
    will try to lower the consciousness of the seeker. But if at that time
    he can bring down abundant purity from the anahata centre, the heart
    centre, then this impurity will be transformed into purity. And purity
    is eventually transformed into ever-fulfilling and everlasting divinity.
    But if he cannot bring down purity, then there is real destruction,
    destruction of the seeker’s life. The lower vital acts most vehemently
    and powerfully and sometimes it becomes worse than the lower vital in
    ordinary human beings. An ordinary human being does not enjoy the vital
    life the way some seekers enjoy it after opening their svadhisthana
    centre.

    Manipura, the navel chakra. If one acquires mastery over this centre, one conquers sorrow and suffering. No matter what happens in his
    life, he will not feel sad or miserable. But this centre can create a
    problem like the svadhisthana chakra. This centre is also dangerous. One
    can create suffering for others if one misuses the power from the
    manipura chakra and he will thereby incur the world’s curse. This
    centre, like the ajna chakra, can show the seeker where a relative or
    dear one has gone after he dies. It lets one see how the person is
    passing through the vital world and entering into the subtle world and
    the higher planes. It shows how he passes from one sheath to another
    after death. This centre also gives one the power of transmutation. One
    can magnify an object or one can reduce it to an infinitesimal size. In
    addition, this centre has healing power. As I said before, if one can
    use this power properly, in accordance with the Will of God, then it is a
    real blessing. Otherwise it is a curse.

    Anahata, the heart centre. Here the power is unbelievable. A seeker with mastery over the anahata centre has free access to both the
    visible and the invisible worlds. Time surrenders to him; space
    surrenders to him. If he uses this centre, he can travel to any part of
    the world in a few seconds in his subtle body. But if he does this, he
    takes a great risk, Suppose he wants to travel occultly and spiritually
    to Europe to see what is happening there. If he does not get the proper
    sanction from the other centres, or if the other centres do not
    cooperate, then the other centres may not allow the soul to come back to
    the body after its journey. In India, I know of quite a few cases where
    Yogis leave their bodies through the heart centre without taking help
    or getting permission and without even informing the other centres. They
    feel that the other centres do not have the same special capacity as
    the heart centre and so they should use the heart centre. Then the other
    centres become jealous. Jealousy is everywhere, in the outer world and
    in the inner world as well. Even the cosmic gods enjoy jealousy. So the
    other centres, because they are jealous, do not let the soul come back.
    If one uses this power, one has to take permission from the Inner Pilot
    first. If the Inner Pilot sanctions it, then the other centres cannot do
    any harm, since the Inner Pilot has infinitely more power than these
    centres.

    In the anahata centre, one can enjoy the deepest bliss of oneness;
    one can have pure Joy. Any person can look at a flower and get joy, but
    the intensity of joy that the flower embodies we cannot all enjoy. But
    if one opens the heart centre and looks at a flower, immediately all the
    joy, all the beauty that the flower has will become his. If the seeker
    looks at the vast ocean, inside his heart he is bound to feel the vast
    ocean. He looks at the vast sky and he enters into the sky, he becomes
    the sky. Anything vast, pure, divine, sublime that he sees, he can
    immediately feel as his very own and he can become that thing. There is
    no yawning gulf between what he sees and what he is. He just becomes in
    his consciousness what he sees.
    This is not his imagination. Far from it! His heart is a divine heart
    which embodies the universal Consciousness. The spiritual heart is not
    the heart that we find in our physical body. The spiritual heart is
    larger than the largest, it is larger than the universal Consciousness
    itself. We always say that there cannot be anything superior to the
    universal Consciousness, but this is a mistake. The heart the spiritual
    heart, houses the universal Consciousness. This centre is very safe when
    we use it to identify ourselves with the vast, with the beauty of
    nature. But when we use it to travel outside the limitations of the
    body, we take a risk.

    Vishuddha, the throat chakra. He who has mastery over vishuddha has the capacity to offer divine messages to the world.
    Universal nature discloses its agelong hidden mysteries to him. Here
    nature bows to the seeker. He can retain eternal youth. The outer world
    surrenders to him. The inner world embraces him. We get messages from
    various planes of consciousness. But when one gets a message from the
    vishuddha centre, the message is sublime and everlasting. When this
    centre is open, one receives direct messages from the Highest and
    becomes a mouthpiece for the Highest. One becomes a poet, a singer or an
    artist. All forms of art are expressed from this centre. This centre is
    open in many individuals. It functions according to the degree to which
    it is open, according to one’s development. There is very little risk
    in this centre. It is a mild centre; it does not interfere with other
    centres and the other centres leave it alone.

    Ajna, the brow chakra. He who has mastery over the ajna chakra destroys his dark past, hastens the golden future and manifests the
    present in a supremely fulfilling way. His psychic and occult powers
    defy all limits; they are endless. The ajna chakra, which is located
    between and a little above the eyebrows, is the most powerful centre.
    The first thing one does when his third eye opens, if it is opened
    properly, is to destroy the unlit, unaspiring and undivine past. Now we
    see something and we have an experience. But there is a difference
    between our experience and the thing that we are experiencing. When the
    ajna centre is opened, however, we experience the thing itself. We
    become one with the thing that we are experiencing. At that time, seeing
    and becoming go together. Seeing itself is becoming and becoming is
    seeing. For this reason the aspirant who has opened his third eye wants
    to destroy the past from his memory. In this incarnation suppose one has
    become a Yogi. When he looks back to his previous incarnation, he sees
    that he was a thief, or something worse. Since he does not now want to
    enter into that experience again, he will try to destroy that part of
    his past. He now has the necessary power.

    When one realises God, the past is automatically deleted. As I said before, when one opens the third eye or any other centre, it does not
    mean that one has realised God. When one realises God, the obscure,
    impure or undivine past is illumined and nullified all at once. At the
    moment of God-realisation, illumination takes place. It is like coming
    out of a dark room into an illumined room. It becomes light where before
    it was all dark. God-realisation is immediate illumination.


    With the ajna chakra, the past can be nullified and the future can be
    brought into the immediacy of today. If one knows that ten years from
    now he is going to do something, achieve something or grow into
    something, then by using the third eye he can achieve that very thing
    today. He does not have to wait for ten, fifteen, twenty years.

    But if one brings the future result to the fore, this can sometimes
    be dangerous. It has happened many, many times that the future of an
    individual is very bright, very luminous. But when the future is brought
    right into the immediacy of the present, the enormity of the result
    puzzles and frightens the seeker. The seeker is like a young elephant.
    He is growing in strength and in ten years he will be very powerful. But
    if the power comes right now, there may be no receptivity, no inner
    receptivity. The power comes, but it cannot be brought under control or
    it cannot be contained in a safe vessel. At that time power itself acts
    like an enemy and destroys the person who invoked it. So there is a
    great danger when one takes the future and brings it into the present.

    Let the present grow and play its role. The past has played its role;
    now the present wants to play its role. Only in some cases, when God
    wants a seeker to make very fast progress, instead of going
    systematically he can run extremely fast. It is just like the situation
    of a student in school. Sometimes a student does not go through all the
    grades of kindergarten, primary school and high school. Sometimes he
    skips grades. In the spiritual life also, if it is God’s Will that the
    future be brought into the present, then there is no danger. But
    otherwise there is great danger.
    With the third eye, one can accomplish much. The third eye has what
    God, the ultimate Power, is. If the ultimate Power is misused by the
    third eye, then it is all destruction. But if the third eye uses the
    ultimate, transcendental Power properly and divinely, then it will be a
    great blessing, the greatest blessing that humanity can imagine.

    Sahasrara, the crown chakra. The sahasrara is the silent one which does not interfere in anything. It is like the eldest member in
    the family: it does not bother anyone and does not want to be bothered
    by anyone. When this centre is opened permanently, one enjoys infinite
    Bliss and becomes inseparably one with the ever-transcending Beyond, one
    comes to know that he is birthless and deathless. He is always dealing
    with Infinity, Eternity and Immortality. These are not vague terms for
    him; they are all reality. This moment he sees himself as Eternity and
    he grows into Eternity: the next moment he sees himself as Infinity and
    he grows into Infinity; a few moments later he sees himself as
    Immortality and grows into Immortality in his consciousness. And at
    times it happens that Infinity, Eternity and Immortality all go together
    in his consciousness.

    When the sahasrara chakra is open, the Inner Pilot becomes a true
    friend. Here the Infinite and His chosen son become very good friends to
    fulfil a specific mission for their mutual manifestation. They share
    many secrets, millions of secrets, in the twinkling of an eye. On the
    one hand Father and son are enjoying infinite Peace and Bliss; on the
    other hand they are discussing world problems, universal problems, all
    in the twinkling of an eye. But their problems are not problems as such.
    Their problems are only experiences in their cosmic game.

    Of all the centres, the highest, the most peaceful, the most soulful,
    the most fruitful is sahasrara. There Infinity, Eternity and
    Immortality have become one. The Source becomes one with the creation,
    and the creation becomes one with the Source. Here the knower and the
    Known, the lover and the Beloved, the slave and the Master, the son and
    the Father, all become one. Together the Creator and the creation
    transcend their Dream and Reality. Their Dream makes them feel what they
    are and their Reality makes them feel what they can do. Reality and
    Dream become one.

    Chakra Healing - The word Chakra in Sanskrit translates to wheel or disc.
    They are centres of activity that receives, assimilates and expresses life force energy. They are responsible for the person's physical, mental, and spiritual functions.
    They absorb and transmit energies to and from the universe, nature, celestial entities, from people even from things.

    Kundalini is a process to gain control, second process is to blocks in chakras, so it flows more clearly, third process is to awaken or reawaken.
