om, the source of energy

The Kundalini Sakti or ‘coiled feminine energy’ is the vast potential of psychic energy, the body’s most powerful thermal current. The arousal of Kundalini is not unique to tantric practice, but forms the basis of all yogic disciplines, and every genuine spiritual experience may be considered a flowering of this physio-nuclear energy. Even music and dance can arouse the Kundalini’s dormant force and direct it to higher planes, until its perfect unfolding and our conscious awareness of its presence within us is realized.
Nervecenters Tantras commonly mention six principal holistically organized centres of consciousness, though the number varies from text to text. Starting from the base of the spine these centres are known as muladhara, Svadhisthana (around the prostatic plexus), Manipura (around the navel), Anahata (near the heart), Visuddha (behind the throat), and Ajna (between the eyebrows). Sahasrara the seventh transcendent chakra is situated four-fingers’ breadth above the top of the head. The Sahasrara chakra is said to be the region of Siva pure Consciousness, while the Muladhara chakra is the seat of Sakti, whose form here is Kundalini. Through certain preescribed disciplines the Kundalini Sakti rises through the psychic centres until it reaches its full flowering – that is, fusion with the Absolute in Sahasrara as Kula-kundalini, generating bliss-consciousness (ananda) from the union of Siva-Sakti.
Tantrikas regard the human organism as a capsule of the whole. He who realizes the truth of the body can then come to know the truth of the universe’ (Ratnasara). The adept accepts this with an almost existential awareness. The psychic and physical organisms are interdendent, since each makes the other possible. The forces governing the cosmos on the macro-level govern the individual on the micro-level. Life is one, and all its forms are interrelated in a vastly complicated but inseparable whole. the underlying unity becomes a bridge between the microcosm and the macrocosm. The human body, like the electro-magnetic bodies of the sun of the earth, has with our present knowledge expanded beyond its physical confines, revealing the subtle human faculties beyond the five senses: the auras of the aetheric body, and its organs- the ‘chakras’ – of religious tradition the streams of ‘qi’ energy which the acupuncturist traces – all of which emanations parallel and fuse with the energy rhythms of our planet and beyond.
The physical sheath of the body, Annamaya is connected with three of the five elements,  earth water and fire- which are represented respectively in the Muladhara, Svadhisthana and Manipura chakras. The Pranamaya sheath, bearing the universal life-force, prana expresses itselt through the air and ether elements which are represented in the Anahata and Visuddha chakras; the Manomaya and Vijnanamaya sheaths have the Ajna chakra as their centre. It is the activation of the Ajna chakra that gives the initiate inner vision, a simultaneous knowledge of things as they really are, as the ‘third eye’ cosmic consciousness opens at this centre. These subtle envelopes are related to the gross or physical particles at several psychic points, and these points are interlinked by numerous subtle channel known as nadis (from the Sanskrit root and meaning motion, vibration).
Though attempts have been made to identify these subtle channels with the anatomay of the physical body, they are practically untraceable by direct empirical observation. If the nadis were to be revealed to the eye the body would appear as a highly complex network. The most important of the nadis are the central channel Sushumna and its two flanking channels: the white,’lunar’ nadi ida on the left and the red ‘solar’ nadi, Pingala on the right the Sushumna nadi runs from just below Muladhara, extending to the forehead through the spinal column. Within the Sushumna nadi there are three more subtle channels: Vajra, Chitrini, and Brahmani or Brahma-nadi the innermost, through which Kundalini moves upwards. Two currents of psychic energy flow through ida and Pingala from the perineum at the base of the spine spiral them between the eyebrows. Sushumna remains closed at its lower end as long as Kundalini is not awakened.
