Kundalini Energy Yoga (KEY)

KEY to Success

Kundalini, the Divine energy within every human being, lies dormant and unused for most. The energy that encompasses the triple-fold function of generating, operating, and bringing about the dissolution of life, both animate and inanimate, is known as Kundalini Shakti. This energy exists at the core of every system, from the smallest atom to planets, galaxies, and the universe itself. In every human being as well, this energy lies coiled and dormant at the base of the spine. When this energy moves through the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems, it acts as the energy for desire and action. However, when the same energy rises through the central nervous system, it manifests as wisdom, known as Gnana Sakthi (Intelligence).

Kundalini power can be intentionally achieved  through Yoga, utilizing techniques like Pranayama, Bandha, or Kriya. However, the most effective approach is to have a Spiritually Enlightened Master or Guru guiding the Kundalini Energy process which is then enhanced through regular meditation practices.

Today, we are fortunate to have a simplified Kundalini Yoga system created by the revered Guru Gnanavallal Paranjothi Mahan. He exemplified that individuals can lead fulfilling family lives and pursue regular professions while attaining Self-realization and Supreme Bliss. The greatest power lies within oneself, surpassing anything in the universe. This dormant power imbues self-confidence, courage, determination, and transforms individuals into extraordinary personalities. These exceptional individuals embody health, wealth, and happiness, free from ignorance and fear. It is the long-awaited aspiration of all human beings.

Click here to Registerhttps://upfna.org/homepage/

Kundalini Energy Yoga – Level 2 (Maha Sakthi Yogam) focuses on Kundalini Meditation, directing attention to one’s coiled energy. Chakra activation purifies and raises this energy to the forehead and crown, enhancing intuition and wisdom. The practice leads to supreme peace, our natural state. 

During Chakra meditation, practitioners feel Kundalini’s pulsation at the forebrain (Ajna) and midbrain (Sahasrara), experiencing sensations like throbbing, tickling, heat, and occasionally cold. This signifies the presence of the eternal soul.

Chakra Meditation

Stage 1: Forehead Center Meditation or Ajna Chakra Meditation 

Ajna chakra meditation aims to deepen the mind’s focus at the Third-eye/Ajna chakra, found between the eyebrows. Through the utilization of their own vital life force energy, individuals can engage in meditation focused on this center, fostering a deep connection with their inner vitality. 

Stage 2: Root Chakra Meditation or Mooladhara Chakra Meditation

Located at the base of the spinal column, between the anus and the urethra, lies the mooladhara, also known as the root chakra. This spot serves as the seat of kundalini shakti, representing the core center of the human body. By focusing on and strengthening the root chakra, individuals can cultivate a solid foundation of primal trust, inner stability, and a heightened sense of joy in life.

Stage 3: Crown Chakra Meditation (Top-head Eye/Crest Eye) or Sahasrara Chakra Meditation

Located at the top of the head, just below the skull, is a sacred spot known as the Top-head Eye. This spot serves as the focal point for Kundalini shakti, which can be directed towards the Crest Eye from its seat at the Mooladhara. This practice leads to the attainment of supreme peace and bliss. By activating the crown chakra, individuals can establish a connection with the highest universal energy (cosmic energy) and experience profound inner peace.

Benefits of Chakra activation:

Physical: Improved endocrine function, disease prevention, rejuvenated nervous system relaxation, pain and fatigue relief.

Mental/Emotional: Reduced stress and anxiety, emotional control, stability, increased willpower, enthusiasm, and positive qualities.

Intellectual: Heightened creativity, clarity of thought, rational thinking, leadership skills, reasoning abilities, and cognitive enhancement.

Spiritual: Transformation, psychological and physiological changes, expanded intuition and psychic abilities, connection with the cosmic center, soul realization.

Once individuals receive chakra activation, they are encouraged to make Kundalini Meditation a part of their daily routine. It involves practicing for 20 minutes in the morning and evening, seamlessly integrating it into their daily activities.
