"The medical science has fully corroborated Shri Mataji's assertions about the Kundalini energy penetrating the nervous system when the latter has reached a certain age of evolution. Thus, embryology has established that over the interval of the first 2-3 months, a radical change arises in the human embryo brain. Over the second month, there are already structures (like the hypothalamus) that are capable of separating the pencil of the Kundalini energy. The evolution of the fetal brain takes place between the 8th and the 12th week of pregnancy by an increase in the number of nervous cells. The genetic program controls the 14 billions of these cells (the number is supposed to be much higher after others) resulting in the creation of the brain as an organ.  The quantitative generating process is suddenly interrupted during the 12th week when the cells start making an increasing number of connections. At the moment of birth each and every cerebral neuron is connected to other cells through approximately one thousand intercellular connections, to be later increased to about one quarter of a million connections with other cells in the period of maturity. During the eight week, the root of the sacral nerve becomes noticeable, and during the thirteen week the backbone marrow has got its final shape. W.I. Thompson wrote: "Neurophysiologists have discovered that the electrical pathways of nerves appear to develop before the growth of the nervous tissue itself; the implication being that they would constitute formative fields preexisting the nervous matter and guiding its development." The nervous pathways prior to the nervous tissue itself —it seems to be an absurd idea. We infer that this sentence refers to the subtle system channels that appear so early inside the fetus. The formative fields pre-existing the nervous matter and guiding its development can be no other than those created by the Kundalini energy.

The convergence of the ancient Indian concepts, of the conclusions of modern embryology, and of religious ethics consenting the abortion before the fetus has reached three months is indeed remarkable.

A hadith narrated by 'bdullah read: "Allah's Messenger, the true and truly inspired said: <<(as regards our creation), every one of you is collected in the womb of his mother for the first forty days, and then he becomes a clot for another forty days, and then a piece of flesh for other forty days. Then Allah sends an angel to write four words... Then the soul is breathed into his body>>" The angel sent is the piercing pencil of vibratory energy, the four written words are the four rays, and the breath is the manifestation specific to the Kundalini that is felt above the fontanel like a cool breeze. In the words of the Toledan physician Judah Halevi (1085-1141) who was a disciple of al-Ghazali, the entering of the Kundalini is described as follows: "It is just as the soul which waits for its entry into the fetus until the latter's vital powers are sufficiently completed to enable it to receive the higher state of things." The Ishraqi movement, founded by the prominent Sufi as-Sahrawadi believed that the Holy Spirit bestowed the light (or soul) on the embryo.

The problem of the sacrum bone is worth, here, a short analysis. The anatomical name coming from hieron ostoun or ostéon (holy bone, Gr.) was used in the time of Hippocrates (about 400 BC) and was translated by the Romans through sacrum (scared, Lat.). Hulyah (vertabra, Hebr.) has the name God Yah (short form of Yahweh) as its root. Why this bone had been called a "holy bone" has been a mystery for centuries. Some thought that the bone was used in sacrificial rituals, others, that it played a role in the protection of genitals (considered to be sacred in themselves), or that the Last Judgment would require this cone to be intact as a receptacle of resurrection. The ancient assumed that the sacrum was the last bone subject to decay after death (conviction found in a Jewish folk story). This idea is also found with the Muslims, being mentioned in a hadith "Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet said: <<... Everything of a human will waste away, perish or decay except the last coccyx bone and from that bone Allah will reconstruct the whole body." Thus, no one should be surprised at the Yogis considering the Kundalini awakening as tantamount to resurrection.

Etzem (bone, essence, Hebr.; tz, vertebra, Egypt.) has etz (tree, Hebr.) for its root, a reason for which Annick de Souzenelle asserted that the sacrum (atz, Hebr.) is the tree (of life, we should add: etz hayyim, Hebr.; ch IV) in its seed form. The double  significance of the word etzem, in our opinion, makes it possible the correct interpretation of Adam's sentence about the Divine Feminine (Eve): "This time it is bone of my bones....; this shall be called Woman" (Genesis 2:23), a sentence that becomes: "she who is essence of my bones" (the feminine energy Kundalini being the scared essence of the respective bone).

The Sacrum Bone
The sacrum bone

 

In chapter 1, the Mooladhara was shown to be controlled by Ganesha, the Divine Son depicted with an elephant head by the Hindu iconography. Indeed, any anatomy book provides the image of an elephant head for the group made up of the sacrum bone (elephant's triangular face) having on both sides the iliac bones (as its ears) and the coccyx (as its curved trunk) at the bottom."

Dan Costian (Ph.D), Bible Enlightened, Vol. One, pg. 93-4

 

"The word Kundalini is derived from a Sanskrit word 'Kundal' meaning coiled up. It is the primordial dormant energy present in three-and-a-half, coils at the base of the spine in a triangular bone called the Sacrum. The Latin name 'Os Sacrum' suggests that it is a holy or sacred part of the body. The ancient Greeks were aware of this and therefore they called it the 'Hieron Osteon', noting that it was the last bone to be destroyed when the body is burnt, and also attributed supernatural powers to it. Egyptians also held this bone to be very valuable and considered it the seat of special power.

In the West, Sacrum is symbolised by the sign of Aquarius and by the Holy Grail, container of the water of life.

The Kundalini, which is to nourish the tree of life within us, is coiled up like a serpent and therefore it has been called, 'the Serpent Power'. It has been described in great detail in the Upanishads. Kundalini Yoga is supposed to be supreme in all the Yogas. Guru Vashistha asserted that Kundalini is the seat of absolute knowledge. The awareness of the presence of this primordial energy Kundalini within the human body was considered by the sages and saints to be the highest knowledge. The Kundalini and Chakras have been vividly described in Vedic and Tantric texts.

Adi Sankaracharya

He lived in the 7th-8th century AD. and wrote:

"Having filled the pathway of the Nadis with the streaming shower of nectar flowing from the Lotus feet, having resumed thine own position from out of the resplendent Lunar regions and Thyself assuming the form of a serpent of three and a half coils, sleepest thou, in the hollow of Kula Kunda (Kula Kunda means the hollow of Mooladhara Sacrum bone)."

"Saundarya Lahari': athou art residing in secrecy with Thy Lord (The spirit) in the thousand petalled Lotus, having pierced through the Earth situated in 'Mooladhara', the Water in Manipura, the Fire abiding in the Svadhisthana, the Air in the Heart ('Anahata'), the Ether above (Visshuddhi) and 'Manas' between the eyebrows ('Agnya') and thus broken through the entire 'Kula Path'."

Gyaneshwara

Gyaneshwara, another famous saint of Maharashtra born around 1275 AD, described Kundalini in the 6th chapter of his famous book 'Gyaneshwari'. He wrote:

'Kundalini is one of the greatest energies. The whole body of the seeker starts glowing because of the rising of the Kundalini. Because of that, unwanted impurities in the body disappear. The body of the seeker suddenly looks very proportionate and the eyes look bright and attractive and the eyeballs glow.' — (Gyaneshwari, Chapter VI).

Guru Nanak Dev

(born in 1496 AD) has made references to Kundalini awakening as mentioned below:

"A pure heart is the golden vessel to fill the Divine Nectar which is to be sucked from the 'Dasham Dwar' through the two channels 'Ida' and 'Pingala'." Dasham Dwar means Brahmarandhra. (Sahasrara Chakra).

"God has made this human body a house with six Chakras and has established the light of spirit in it. Cross the ocean of Maya and meet the eternal God who does not come, who does not go, who neither takes birth nor dies. When your six Chakras meet in line, Surati (Kundalini) takes you beyond distortions.' (Sri Guru Granth). Note that the seventh Chakra was not open at this time."

In the Holy Koran

Prophet Mohammed Sahib talked of the day of resurrection when he says that the 'hands will speak'. athat day, we set a seal on their mouths, but their hands will speak to us, and their hands bear witness to all that they did.' When Kundalini awakening occurs, a flow of energy in the form of cool vibrations from the hands is experienced, and the various Chakras can be felt on parts of the hand and fingers.

In the West

Christians called it a reflection of the Holy Ghost, and worshipped its manifestations as tongues of flames over the heads of apostles during the Pentecost reunion.

Moses

Moses saw it in the form of the burning bush. During the exodus the Israelites lost faith and were smitten by fiery serpents so God told Moses "make thee a serpent, and set it upon a pole: and it shall come to pass, that everyone that is bitten, when he looketh upon it, shall live. And Moses made a serpent of brass, and put it on a pole, and it came to pass, that if a fiery serpent had bitten any man, when he beheld the serpent of brass, he lived" An apt description of the healing qualities of the awakened Kundalini. Some of the Israelites even began to worship this symbol, and the practice of worshipping the brazen serpent on the pole as a god was either passed on, or was revived later. Bronze and stone serpent artifacts have been found in excavations in Canaan, Gezer and other parts of Israel!

Jesus

The Old Testament symbol becomes significant in Christianity when Christ suggests Kundalini awakening, not just for the tribe of Israel but as the true destiny of all Christians: "And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even as the son of man be lifted up: That whosoever believeth in him should not perish but have eternal life" He says unequivocally in the Gnostic Gospel of Thomas and elsewhere, that 'the Holy Spirit is My Mother'. 'the Kingdom of God is within you' (Luke 17:21).

Tao

In the Tao Te Ching the primordial power is described as that of a mother. Lao Tze described Kundalini as the "spirit of the valley" (in which flows the Nadi of Sushumna). The spirit of the valley never dies. The spiritual instrument within us can be described as a microcosm (miniature form of creation) which links us with the Divine. The ancient esoteric text "Scripture of the Golden Flower" also spoke of the effects of the awakened kundalini energy.

Buddhism

The Lord Buddha spoke of the "middle path" to achieve nirvana. He was actually describing the central channel (sushumna) through which the Kundalini ascends. Later Buddhist masters considered that the existence of the path of liberation within a human being was the greatest secret. They transmitted it to only a few deserving disciples.

Other Cultures

One also finds symbols of Kundalini in many different cultural legacies, such as Mercury's serpent which is an alchemical symbol for the process of psychic metamorphosis. The Gnostics understood the serpent to represent the spinal cord. In ancient Greek and later, Roman mythology, we find Asclepius, the god of healing. He is seen holding a staff which is entwined with a serpent (or sometimes two). Why did the Greeks relate this symbol to healing? The staff represents the central support of the human body or spinal cord (physical location of the sushumna. In Rome Aescaluius came to be represent mercury who usually held a healing staff called the Caduceus. The one or two coiled snakes or serpents entwined around the staff, represent the kundalini which rises along the central subtle channel in a spiral double helical movement.

Summary

The Kundalini is there to nourish, to heal and look after and to give an individual a higher and deeper personality. The power of Kundalini is absolute purity, auspiciousness, chastity, self respect, pure love, detachment, concern for others and enlightened attention, to give infinite joy and peace to an individual.

"Sahaj has a very special meaning spontaneously. You do not have to exert. You do not have to go into a penance or work it out. In a Sahaj way you can do it.

Sahaj also means easy. You can have it in your heart, all these qualities, without any difficulty whatsoever. Itıs the easiest thing for you to be righteous, than to be otherwise. Itıs easier for you to be honest than to be otherwise.

So this specialty that you have got is the vision of all the saints, of all the prophets, of all the seers, of all the incarnations is you."
