Born Of The Spirit Within"In the Western world the Kundalini is symbolized by the medical symbol of the caduceus, the rod with two snakes coiled around it in spirals. At the top are two wings, which are images of Mercury or Hermes who are the messengers of the Gods. The caduceus is the symbol for healing, health, and transformation. The center rod symbolizes the spinal cord. In Yoga philosophy the center cord is called the Sushumna and it represents the grounding, neutral cord of the three parts of the rising Kundalini."
Kash asked his mother to sit comfortably on a chair before the photograph of Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi. He then requested that she place her opened palms on her lap and enter into a state of thoughtless awareness, a witness-like state whereby a person can watch their thoughts flow but not get involved in them, thus creating a sacred space in one's consciousness for the awareness of the Divine. After raising his own Kundalini up to his Sahasrara and putting himself in bandhan[,] Kash folded his hands in namaste and asked the Great Primordial Kundalini to awaken the Kundalini residing within his own mother. He then used his hands to channel spiritual energy to the sacrum bone at the base of the spine, wherein the Kundalini of his mother had lain dormant for years.
After raising his own Kundalini up to his Sahasrara and putting himself in bandhan Kash folded his hands in namaste and asked the Great Primordial Kundalini to awaken the Kundalini residing within his own mother. He then used his hands to channel spiritual energy into the sacrum bone of his mother where her Kundalini had laid dormant for years.
With eyes closed in concentration the vibrations flowed profusely from his hands. The Kundalini of his birth mother responded and informed his own Kundalini the condition of her chakras. Kash instantly decoded this vital information on his fingertips and knew precisely which chakra was malfunctioning and the extent of damage.
He then proceeded to 'cleanse' these stagnant energy centres by rotating them to begin spinning again, a sort of spiritual jump-start of dormant clogged chakras.
Every now and then he checked the decoding signals/vibrations on his fingertips for any change or improvement in their condition.
His own Kundalini kept coordinating with him, advising him to work on another chakra whenever it detected a 'blockage.' Sometimes he had to rotate two or three chakras in quick succession, one after another, as the Kundalini kept scanning the subtle system like a spiritual virus detector. Occasionally he would coax his mothers Kundalini to rise and penetrate the Sahasrara (Kingdom of God), raising it all the way from the Mooladhara chakra to the top of the head.
By checking the top of the Brahmarandhra for the Divine Cool Breeze and finding none, he knew that the Kundalini was still having obstructions. Then again he would have to add more spin to the energy centers.
There was nothing physical or mental in this ritual of Kundalini awakening. The whole process was purely spiritual in nature, an esoteric Reality leading to "an enlargement, a rush of new experience, a greater vision, a larger capacity, an extended life infinitely more real and various than the first pettiness of the life constructed for itself by our normal physical humanity, a joy of being which is larger and richer than any delight in existence that the vital outer man." This is the vibratory awareness of the New Age that will empower the human race to awaken the dormant Kundalini of fellow human beings to heal body, mind and their soul!
Kash continued until the first few strands of the Kundalini pierced the Sahasradala-Padma (Thousand-Petalled Lotus) (Thousand-Petalled Lotus) and the Divine Cool Breeze of the Holy Spirit began to blow from the top of the fontanel bone area. It was done! The ever-existent Bhagavatii (Goddess) within had given 'second birth' to his mother. This was the genuine Baptism of God Almighty, the salvation provided during this Golden Age of the Last Judgment and Resurrection that no religious institution could duplicate, much less provide to their herd.
Kash's mother never looked outside herself for spiritual guidance after that as she merged her mind, body and soul into Shakti Sadhana. She began to feel the Divine Breath within!
Over the weeks and months the awakened Mother Kundalini was destroying all the religious corruption and conditioning that had imprisoned Her child. The Absolute Truth that all of His Messengers were One in the Kingdom of God made her embrace Lord Jesus of the Bible, Shri Buddha of the Dhammapada, Shri Krishna of the Bhagavadgita, Moses of the Torah, Prophet Muhammad of the Quran, Guru Nanak of the Guru Granth Sahib, and Lao-Tze of the Tao Te Ching. She was no more a prisoner-of-religion. Her soul was free at last to rise, going beyond the limits of religion and mind and into the All Pervading Consciousness.
This was no ordinary meditation for she could actually experience the Spiritual Energy working within her. Even with the discomforts of advanced pregnancy at Lakeshore Hospital, she got down twice daily onto the sofa to meditate. It was an experience that decades of religious prayers had not given Sat (Truth), Chit (Consciousness) and Anand (Bliss).
She could feel the presence of the Great Adi Shakti within as the vibrations (Breath of God - Ruach Ha Kodesh) flowed through every pore of the gestating mother, uniting a creator-to-be with the Primordial Creator within. It was a mystical experience of the Kingdom of God within (Sahasrara) beyond the comprehension of religious regimes, especially Judaism, Islam and Christianity:
"A careful perusal of the New Testament sections will show that although most of them may conveniently be classified as first degree, i.e., purely religious matter, there is also a thin vein of mysticism of the second degree running right through them. For instance, the sentence "The kingdom of heaven is within you," has absolutely no connection whatsoever with official religion and entirely refers to the experiences of yogis and mystics.
The explanation why such a mixture of concepts exists, is twofold. Firstly, the compilation of these records in a single volume did not occur until a few hundred years after Jesus is believed to have passed away. The obscure Council of Nicea found numerous gospels extant when it sat to make the compilation, consisting of a mixed collection of religious books intended for the masses and mystical ones intended for the elect few. The immense number of bishops who constituted this council had quite a fight over the nature of Christ, they naturally made their selections and rejections according to their personal temperaments and outlook. Hence the somewhat uneven selection of authentic gospels and unjustifiable rejection of certain apocrypha.
Secondly, Jesus was in revolt against the stiff orthodoxy of the Jewish priests most of whom were not only ignorant of the higher degree themselves but deliberately persecuted those who were mystically inclined. His indignation expressed itself in the words, "Woe unto you! Ye entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering ye prevented." " 1
Thus those who wish to take part in the Last Judgment and Resurrection and to enter the Kingdom of God that Jesus Christ preached about, they first and foremost have to attain Self-Realization through kundalini awakening:
"The most ancient Eastern spiritual texts, the Vedas, of India, tell us that the process of spiritual awakening by which one attains truth-awareness is called 'Self-Realisation'. The Self Realised person lives in direct experience of reality -- this is called "Jnana" ( a traditional sanskrit word meaning 'knowledge' or 'Gnosis'). Such a person is called a "Jnani" ('knower ' or 'gnostic' ) or "dwijaha" ('twice born'; first from a human mother to the earthly plane then secondly as a child of the Goddess, or Divine Mother, who gives the seeker their second, spiritual birth, Self Realisation, into the plane of mystic awareness- gnosis! ). The traditional Indian texts extol the 'Divine Mother' as the Cosmic Matriarch, bestower of the highest treasure of Self Realisation upon Her deserving children. Many Indian mystic traditions say this same goddess is represented within the human being as the divine feminine power called Kundalini.
What of Western tradition? In the Secret Book of John Christ explains that human redemption before the Heavenly Father occurs by the mediation of a Divine Feminine principle, which he calls the Earthly Mother. It is the Earthly Mother who removes the sins of the children that they can become worthy of their divine heritage; "when all sins and all uncleanness are gone from your body, your blood shall become as pure as our Earthly Mother's blood and as pure as the river's foam sporting in the sunlight. And your breath shall become as pure as the breath of odorous flowers; your flesh as pure as the flesh of fresh fruits reddening upon the leaves of trees; the light of your eye as clear and bright as the brightness of the sun shining upon the blue sky. And now shall all the angels of the Earthly Mother serve you and your breath, your blood, your flesh shall be one with the breath, the blood and the flesh of the Earthly Mother, that your spirit also become one with the Spirit of your Heavenly Father. For truly no-one can reach the Heavenly Father unless through the Heavenly Mother. Even as the newborn babe cannot understand the teaching of his father until his mother has suckled him, bathed him, nursed him, put him to sleep and nurtured him". The Earthly Mother is a divine mediator through which the seekers, the Sons of Man, are raised to the Heavenly Father. Another part of the same text says "Honour your Earthly Mother and keep her laws that your days may be long on this earth and honour your Heavenly Father, that eternal life may be yours in the Heavens. For the Heavenly Father is a hundred times greater than all the fathers by seed and by blood, and greater is the Earthly Mother than all mothers by the body". The Holy Trinity, then is God the Father, God the Son (i.e., Christ) and, it seems, God the Mother. The Divine Mother particularly is the means and power of spiritual evolution.
The Secret Book of John relates Christ's description of the Divine Feminine as the power of God Almighty. "She is the first power. She preceded everything, and came forth from the Father's mind as forethought of all. Her light resembles the Father's light; as the perfect power She is the image of the perfect and invisible Virgin Spirit. She is the first power, the glory, Barbello, the perfect glory among the worlds, the emerging glory, She glorified and praised the Virgin Spirit for she had come forth through the Spirit. She is the first thought, image of the Spirit. She became the universal womb, for She precedes everything, the common parent, the first humanity, the Holy Spirit". The Holy Spirit is here described as the Divine Power of God Himself. This power is maternal in its character (universal womb, She, the common parent) and all powerful as the 'first emanation of God'. More so, She is pure (Virgin) and She glorifies purity. So ancient Christian tradition seems to tell us that the holy spirit is actually the Divine Mother!" 2
In the text, Vivekachudamini (The Crest Jewel of Discrimination), Adi Shankaracharya writes of the final joy of realization of the Absolute, where the student cries out after attaining union with the Spirit within:
"The ego has disappeared. I have realized my identity with Brahman [the word for the absolute reality] and so all my desires have melted away. I have risen above my ignorance and my knowledge of this seeming universe. What is this joy that I feel? Who shall measure it? I know nothing but joy, limitless, unbounded!
"The ocean of Brahman is full of nectar--the joy of the Atman [the individual Self]. The treasure I have found there cannot be described in words. The mind cannot conceive of it. My mind fell like a hailstone into that vast expanse of Brahman's ocean. Touching one drop of it, I melted away and became one with Brahman. And now, though I return to human consciousness, I abide in the joy of the Atman.
"Where is this universe? Who took it away? Has it merged into something else? A while ago, I beheld it--now it exists no longer. This is wonderful indeed!
"Here is the ocean of Brahman, full of endless joy. How can I accept or reject anything? Is there anything apart or distinct from Brahman?
"Now, finally and clearly, I know that I am the Atman, whose nature is eternal joy. I see nothing, I hear nothing, I know nothing that is separate from me."

QUOTES OF SHRI MATAJI
Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi "So today the Master within us within us is the Spirit. But before Realization, we are not the Master because the Master has not come in our conscious mind. It is not expressing in our conscious mind, in the sense that we are not empowered.
By its Powers the Spirit exists; it has its own Powers, but we havent felt those Powers within us. Once we feel the Powers of the Spirit we are empowered by our own Powers which are there.
The Powers are within us. These are our own Powers. We dont have to borrow from anyone, ask from anyone. They are within ourselves. The Spirit is within us. Only thing, that Spirit has to give Light in our, in our consciousness. It has to come in our consciousness.
In simple medical terminology we can say the Spirit must manifest itself in our central nervous system, in our central nervous system, so that we should know what we are doing."
Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi
Problems of the Subconscious, U.K. May 13, 1982
"So when the Kundalini ascends through the central path you see the subject is so great that even if I give thousand lectures I cannot cover it, so the thing is Ill try to cover every point little bit here and there when the Kundalini ascends, I told you the Cool Breeze starts coming out of your head. So what happens to you? For the first time you feel the Cool Breeze of the Holy Ghost!"

ADDITIONAL QUOTES"Kundalini is the highest energy of the infinite, coiled up and dynamic, at the base of the human spine. It is within the kundalini where contact is made between the infinite divine creative energy and the finite physical sexual energy. For the Soul to gain its highest spiritual potential while incarnated in a physical form, the great mass of Kundalini energy locked in the root chakra must be released to travel up to the crown chakra.
The root chakra, at the base of the spine, represents our connection to the feminine Goddess energy that is manifest in the body of planet Earth. The crown chakra, at the top of our head, represents the masculine God energy that exists as pure potential in the non-physical dimensions. This energy radiates to earth within the prana and kundalini emanations from the Sun.
When the Goddess Kundalini has traveled up the spine to meet her Divine Mate, the union of Spirit and Matter are consummated. Kundalini is known in the Eastern world as the Goddess Shakti. When Goddess Shakti is awakened, She sweeps us up in Her tremendous passion to reunite with Her Lord Shiva in the crown chakra. This Mystical Marriage symbolizes the combining of the male and female energies within our bodies and the awakening of our multidimensional consciousness. Then, we will be clear enough for our Soul to inhabit our physical form and live its Divine Purpose through us.
In the Western world the Kundalini is symbolized by the medical symbol of the caduceus, the rod with two snakes coiled around it in spirals. At the top are two wings, which are images of Mercury or Hermes who are the messengers of the Gods. The caduceus is the symbol for healing, health, and transformation. The center rod symbolizes the spinal cord. In Yoga philosophy the center cord is called the Sushumna and it represents the grounding, neutral cord of the three parts of the rising Kundalini."
"It is irrelevant to wonder what is infinite and what is finite. The goal of the enquiry should be: How can the subject concretely realise its infinite dimension? The subject who lives in the finite world of thoughts has to achieve the state of mind in which his attention enters into the infinite. How? . . .
The teachings of history are clear enough: the common man cannot solve the Infinite-Finite dilemma. And yet there has been a tremendous historical expectation for that kind of happening. And yet the greatest scriptures in the world (The Tao-Te-King, Bhagavad -Gita, The Torah, The Koran, The Bible, etc.) are metaphorical sayings on the possibility for man to break through the existential entropy, that is, to establish communication with Reality. . . .
But why not consider a new hypothesis: why not accept that a historical happening could trigger, on behalf of Reality, the process of a breakthrough of consciousness? After all, between ape and man, something somehow happened a long time ago. We evolved from the amoebae to the present stage without any planning exercises on our side and it is not unreasonable to expect that our further evolution will also take place spontaneously by the play of Reality. That which led evolution from animal to the human being, would it not lead it further from the human to the super human?"
G. de Kalbermatten, The Advent
"Chuang-tzus descriptions of the indescribable Tao, as well as those who have attained union with the Tao, are invariably poetic. The perfect man has identified his life rhythm so completely with the rhythm of the forces of nature that he has become indistinguishable from them and shares their immortality and infinity, which is above the cycle of ordinary life and death. He is "pure spirit . . ." "A man like this rides the clouds as his carriages and the sun and moon as his steeds." . . .
These wonderings are journeys within oneself; they are roamings through the Infinite in ecstasy. Transcending the ordinary distinction of things and one with the Tao, "the Perfect Man has no self, the Holy Man has no merit, the Sage has no fame." He lives inconspicuously among men, and whatever applies to the Tao applies to him."
New Encyclopaedia Britannica
"For the essence of consciousness is the power to be aware of itself and its objects, and in its true nature this power must be direct, self-fulfilled and complete: if it is in us indirect, incomplete, unfulfilled in its workings, dependent on constructed instruments, it is because consciousness here is emerging from an original veiling Inconscience and is yet burdened and enveloped with the first Nescience proper to the Inconscient; but it must have the power to emerge completely, its destiny must be to evolve into its own perfection which is its true nature. Its true nature is to be wholly aware of its objects, and of these objects the first is self, the being which is evolving its consciousness here, and the rest is what we see as not-self, but if existence is indivisible, that too must in reality be self: the destiny of evolving consciousness must be, then, to become perfect in its awareness, entirely aware of self and all-aware. This perfect and natural condition of consciousness is to us a superconscience, a state which is beyond us and in which our mind, if suddenly transferred to it, could not at first function; but it is towards that superconscience that our conscious being must be evolving . . .
It is this to which we have given the name of Supermind or Gnosis. For that evidently must be the consciousness of the Reality, the Being, the Spirit that is secret in us and slowly manifesting here; of that Being we are the becomings and must grow into its nature."
