DEMYSTIFYING YOGA

Sadhguru speaks about what kundalini


is, and looks at the process of Kundalini
Yoga. He explores how this powerful
spiritual process should be approached
with utmost responsibility and reverence.
Sadhguru: In the yogic culture, the snake is a
symbolism for kundalini the unmanifest energy
within you. The nature of kundalini is such that when
it is still, you do not even know it exists. Only when it
moves, you realize there is so much power within you.
Till it moves it is almost non-existent. Because of this,
kundalini is symbolized as a snake because a coiled-up
snake is so hard to see unless it moves. Similarly, you
do not see this coiled-up energy unless it moves. If

your kundalini is aroused, miraculous things that you


cannot believe possible will happen with you. An
unleashing of a completely new level of energy begins
and your body and everything behaves in a completely
different way.
Heightened states of
energy are also
heightened states of
perception. The whole
yogic system is aimed
only towards enhancing
your perception. A
spiritual process
essentially means just
that to enhance your
perception because you
know only what you
perceive. This is the
reason for the

has opened.

The Third Eye


The third eye does not mean someones forehead has
cracked and something came out. It simply means
another dimension of perception has opened up. The
two eyes can see only that which is physical. If I just
cover them with my hand, they cannot look beyond
that. That is how limited they are. If the third eye has
opened, it means another dimension of perception
which is inward looking, which looks at life completely
differently, has opened up and everything that can be
perceived is perceived.

bring a sense of
reverence and then

it is so enormous. If

kundalini, the necessary
preparation in your
body, mind and
emotion should happen,
because if you pump

out. So many people have come to me who have lost


their mental balance and physical capabilities because
they tried to do Kundalini Y oga without the necessary
guidance and assistance. If the necessary supportive
atmosphere is not there, simply attempting to raise
kundalini could be very irresponsible and dangerous.

form of yoga. I am saying dangerous because it is the


most potent also. What is most potent is always the
most dangerous if improperly handled. For example,
there are various kinds of ways in which electricity is
being produced. One of the ways we do it is through
nuclear reactors. It is the most efficient way of
producing energy that we know right now but it is also
the most dangerous way, isnt it? When things are
going right, it is the easiest and best way to produce
energy on the planet. When things go wrong, they go
seriously wrong in ways that you cant fix it. Similarly
with Kundalini Y oga, it is the most potent and it is the
most dangerous. Without the necessary preparation,
without constant, expert guidance and observation, no
one should ever attempt it. But the problem is books
have been written about it and everybody wants to do
the highest yoga. Nobody wants to start with A,
everybody wants to start the alphabet with Z. This
attitude itself is dangerous.
In classical yogic
traditions, there is a
certain type of yoga we

There is a certain other

for ascetics. We never

potent way to do it but
it will demand a certain

allow. If you do that


kind of yoga, it will
dismantle your outside
life instantly.
This doesnt mean there is something wrong with
Kundalini Y oga. It is a very fantastic process but it
needs to be done properly because energy has no
discretion of its own. Y ou can make your life out of it
or you can burn your life out of it. Electricity is
making our life. But if you stick your little finger into

it, you know what will happen! Energy has no


discretion. How you use it is how it is. Kundalini is also
like that. Y ou are using it right now but in a minimal
way. If you maximize it you can raise beyond your
limitations of existence.
All yoga in one way is towards that but Kundalini
Y oga is particularly towards that. In fact, all life is
towards that. In some way, people want to experience
life more intensely than they are experiencing it right
now. Someone wants to sing, someone else wants to
dance, someone wants to drink alcohol, someone else
wants to pray why are they doing all this? They
want to experience life more intensely. Everyone is
trying to raise their kundalini but they are doing it
haphazardly. When you approach it scientifically with
a proper method, we say it is yoga.

kundalini or connecting to it does not look so simple and clear, why ???
