Celibacy/Abstinence/Kundalini awakening


ABout kundalini. I understand the practice of brahmacharya but after that, to awaken kundalini and make it go upward do you have to visualize it or bring it to the head using your will and imagination during meditation? Are they other easier methods?

Why do you want to develop the desire to awaken Kundalini? Desire is the first impediment to realization. Do the described Sadhana, follow the lifestyle and mental perspective suggested earlier and develop quietude. All that has to come, will come to such a one. Nothing more is required.

Questions concerning the practice of 'Brahmacharya' to know the self, & the means required are dealt with here.


The term 'Yoga' is a derivative of the Samskruth verb 'Yuj' which refers to union. 'Yoga', also called 'Brahma vidy‚' is the eternal dissolution of the individual 'Aham' (Ego) into the Atman (self) for 'Mukti' (liberation). Mere indulgence in '¬sana' or physical postures is not Yoga. ¬sana is only one limb or 'Anga' of Yoga. The eight limbs viz. Yama, Niyama, ¬sana, Pr‚n‚y‚ma, Praty‚h‚ra, Dh‚rana, Dhy‚na and Sam‚dhi are the means to Yoga. Brahmacharya or spiritually based continence is one of the important components of 'Yama'. 'Brahmacharya':- "Brahmani charyathey ithi" - "To surrender one's Ego and go with the will of the Almighty."
