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
The sacrum bone
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."
Costian (Ph.D), Bible Enlightened, Vol. One, pg. 93-4
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.
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)."
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'."
another famous saint of Maharashtra born around 1275 AD,
described Kundalini in the 6th chapter of his famous book 'Gyaneshwari'.
'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,
Guru Nanak Dev
in 1496 AD) has made references to Kundalini awakening as
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).
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"
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
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 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
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).
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
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.
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
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.
