"So the power of Kundalini is absolute purity, auspiciousness, holiness, chastity, self-respect, pure love, detachment, concern, enlightened attention to give you joy, as every mother wants that her child should get the joy. Whichever way is possible, she'll try to give joy to her children. In the same way, this Kundalini has only one power - how to give joy to Her own children and she does that. Supposing - I mean, I don't know about modern mothers, but normally if I would go and say to My mother, "Teach Me how to be angry," she will say, "You go and cut your nose." If I tell her that, "Tell Me how to tell lies," she'll say, "Go and cut your tongue." If I say, "Tell Me how to say bad things to others," she'll say take out your eyes is better." All these ideas that we harbor within ourselves make a very big problem for Kundalini to enter into your attention. "

The Power of the Kundalini with pure desire


Surrender yourself for the Kundalini to open the chakras

So, if you are conditioned, you're frightened, you're afraid and you had ideas about yourself. These days the way people are describing, they'll say I'm an extrovert, somebody will say I'm an introvert, I'm that, all kinds of things they can have attributed to themselves. But these ideas are all coming from outside, they're not from inside. To get to the inner side of yourself, the subtler side of your being, you must allow the Kundalini to go through the agnya. To cross the agnya is a very important thing in modern times and for that you have to meditate. If you can meditate with complete faith in yourself, this agnya can be opened out. With surrendering to the divine, you have to surrender yourself to the divine, and when this agnya opens, you'll be amazed. Your Sahasrara is just waiting to transfer, to give you all the help that you need through the all-pervading power. Your connection of Sahasrara with the all-pervading power is established and by that you'll be amazed how all these seven chakras work for you, how they help you, how they try to give you whatever is the real knowledge about everything. This real knowledge that you get is very joy giving. You can see this real knowledge in everything. You don't have to start reading any book about it. In every situation and in every person, in every flower, in every natural happening, you see clearly the hand of the divine. Once you see the hand of the divine, your ego starts disappearing. Once you say that it's you, you do everything; it's the divine power that does everything - what am I? I was just a drop and I fell into this ocean of awareness of the divine power and that is taking over and working it out. That will help you a lot to be a great Sahaja Yogi. (10.05.1998, Cabella, Italy)

Kundalini as Self-Knowledge

First of all, I think this is the most important thing to understand about your own Kundalini; as Self Realization is Self Knowledge and the one who gives you Self Knowledge is this, your own Kundalini, because when She rises, She points it out, what are the problems on your chakras. Now, we say that it is pure desire, but we do not know what purity means. It means your chaste desire. It means it has no lust, greed, anything in it. That power is your own Mother and is settled in your triangular bone. She's your own Mother. She knows everything about you. It's like a tape recorder. She knows everything about you and She is absolutely the knowledge because She's so pure. And whatever chakras She touches, She also knows what's wrong with that chakra beforehand. So She's quite prepared and She adjusts Herself fully so that you do not get a problem by Her awakening. If any chakra is constricted, She waits and goes on slowly opening that chakra. (11.08.1991, Weilburg, Germany)


Kundalini acting through the three channels

Now, this Kundalini is the primordial power, which is reflected within you, and within you, in a human being, it is like many strands of energy; so it's like a rope and these energies are all twisted together to form this Kundalini. In a human being these strands are three into seven - that is twenty-one - raised to the power of one-hundred and eight. But when your Kundalini rises, one or two strands out of this come up and pierce the fontanel bone area; only one or two because it has to pass through the innermost channel, known as the Brahma (Central) channel. It's all a spiral throughout because Kundalini is a spiral and these channels are also like a spiral like this. So the innermost channel is the Brahma channel. The outermost channel is the Pingala (Right) channel and the second innermost is the Ida (Left) channel. So, through the Brahma channel, She starts sending those threads. By that, they relax the centre. By the relaxation of the centre, the sympathetic nervous system also starts relaxing and when it goes to the Agnya Chakra, then your eyes start relaxing, your pupils start dilating and your eyes can become like Mine, very black, absolutely relaxed. So, you can easily see in a person how far the Kundalini.is. If it has pierced the Agnya, then the eyes will be completely dilated and will be shining and then She enters into the Sahasrara. (11.08.1991, Weilburg, Germany)

Kundalini as living energy

Now, it is absolutely pure light of knowledge, love, compassion and attention. All these three things are in that energy. We know of several energies like electrical energy. We know of light energy. We know of other energies. But these energies cannot think. They cannot adjust. They cannot work on their own. They are to be handled by us. But this energy, itself, is the living energy and knows how to handle itself. It thinks. If you see a seed being sprouted, you'll find at the tip of the seed there's a small little cell, which knows how to go around the soft places and then how to encircle the stones and then how to find its way to the source. That cell has got, I would say, a little Kundalini, the way it moves. But within you is a tremendous force of Kundalini. (11.08.1991, Weilburg, Germany)

How to communicate with your Kundalini energy

So, you have a storehouse of compassion, which can be enlightened by the spirit. You have the storehouse of love, compassion, and knowledge, and ocean of forgiveness. When people get Realization, they do not understand that they have to now grow. And why don't they grow? Because they do not ask for these energies. A person who is a realized soul, if he says, "I have to have more compassion. My compassion is not all right. My concern about others is not all right. My generosity is not all right. I'm exploiting others. I'm exploiting their love," then this energy starts moving, giving you that greater dimension of love and compassion. But if you do not want to be growing in your awareness, then She says, "All right. He is a half-baked Sahaja Yogi. Let it be." She doesn't supply that energy which is stored within you. I told you, three into seven, that is twenty-one, rose to the power of one-hundred and eight, so what a storehouse you have within yourself, but because of your mundane style of thinking and asking - in the beginning, when I started Sahaja Yoga people used to ask for, say, jobs or for "My mother is sick" or a father is sick or they would ask for money or something like that. So these wants are not pure wants. As we know in economics, they are not pure wants. They're impure wants because they are never satiable in general. (11.08.1991, Weilburg, Germany)

The Power of the Kundalini with pure desire

So what we should ask for is that beautiful, soft, soft, compassionate nature and then the Kundalini will supply because She only has that. Kundalini doesn't have anything else. All Her power is of love, nothing but love. So how can She give you something She doesn't have? Supposing you hate someone, what can She do? She can't do anything because She cannot give you powers to hate. So what She says, "You hate someone? I'll forgive." She gives you the power to forgive. Like a sword has to fight a shield, not a sword. So the violence, as they say, can only be fought with non-violence. In the same way, if we have to grow, the Sahaja Yogis have to grow, first of all we have to see how softly we talk, how kindly we talk, how considerate we are. Now this is externally, but when you start doing that externally the energy starts coming internally. You might say, "Mother, even if you think -" So that's our thinking. No, you're thinking that time. For that thinking, the energy will come from Kundalini because you're asking Her help. Whatever She has, She is willing to give, but whatever She does not have, how can She give? (11.08.1991, Weilburg, Germany)
