The Rousing Of
Kundalini

 

 

 A wise
Yogi should take the Kundalini from the Muladhara to the
Sahasrara or the thousand-petalled Lotus in the crown of the
head. This process is called Shakti-Chalana.

 The
Kundalini should pass through the Svadhishthana Chakra, the
Manipura Chakra in the navel, the Anahata Chakra in the heart,
the Vishuddha Chakra in the throat, and the Ajna Chakra between
the eyebrows or the Trikuti.

 Two things
are necessary for the practice of Shakti-Chalana. One is the
Sarasvati Chalana and the other is the restraint of Prana or the
breath.


The
Sarasvati Chalana

 Sarasvati
Chalana is the rousing of the Sarasvati Nadi. Sarasvati Nadi is
situated on the west of the navel among the fourteen Nadis.
Sarasvati is called Arundhati. Literally, it means that which
helps the performance of good actions.

 Through
this practice of Sarasvati Chalana and the restraint of the
Prana, the Kundalini which is spiral becomes straightened.

 The
Kundalini is roused only by rousing the Sarasvati.

 When Prana
or the breath is passing through one’s Ida or the left nostril,
one should sit firmly in Padmasana and lengthen inwards 4 digits
the Akasa of 12 digits. In exhalation Prana goes out 16 digits
and in inhalation it goes in only 12 digits, thus losing 4. But
if inhaled for 16 digits then the Kundalini is aroused.

 The wise
Yogi should bring Sarasvati Nadi by means of this lengthened
breath and holding firmly together both the ribs near the navel
by means of the forefinger and thumbs of both hands one hand on
each side, should stir up Kundalini with all his strength, from
right to left, again and again. This stirring may extend over a
period of 48 minutes.

 Then he
should draw up a little when Kundalini finds its entry into
Sushumna. This is the means by which the Kundalini enters the
mouth of Sushumna.

 Along with
the Kundalini, Prana also enters of itself the Sushumna.

 The Yogic
student should also expand navel by compressing the neck. After
this, by shaking Sarasvati, the Prana is sent above to the
chest. By the contraction of the neck, Prana goes above from the
chest.

 Sarasvati
has sound in her womb. She should be thrown into vibration or
shaken daily.

 Merely by
shaking Sarasvati one is cured of dropsy or Jalodara, Gulma (a
disease of the stomach), Pliha (a disease of the spleen) and all
other diseases rising within the belly.

Varieties
Of Pranayama

 Briefly, I
will now describe to you Pranayama. Prana is the Vayu that moves
in the body. The restraint of Prana within is known as Kumbhaka.

 Kumbhaka
is of two kinds, namely, Sahita and Kevala.

 Till he
gets Kevala, the Yogic student should practise Sahita.

 There are
four divisions or Bhedas. These divisions are: Surya, Ujjayi,
Sitali and Bhastrika. Sahita Kumbhaka is the Kumbhaka associated
with these four.


Suryabheda Kumbhaka

 Select a
place which is pure, beautiful and free from pebbles, thorns,
etc. It should be of the length of a bow free from cold, fire
and water. To this place, take a pure and pleasant seat which is
neither too high nor too low. Upon it, sit in Padmasana. Now,
shake or throw into vibration Sarasvati. Slowly inhale the
breath from outside, through the right nostril, as long as this
is comfortable, and exhale it through the left nostril. Exhale
after purifying the skull by forcing the breath up. This
destroys the four kinds of evils caused by Vayu. It destroys
also the intestinal worms. This should be repeated often. It is
called Suryabheda.


Ujjayi Kumbhaka

 Close the
mouth. Draw up slowly the breath through both the nostrils.
Retain it in the space between the heart and the neck. Then
exhale through the left nostril.

 This
removes both the heat caused in the head and the phlegm in the
throat. It removes all diseases. It purifies the body and
increases the gastric fire. It removes all the evils arising in
the Nadis, Jalodara or dropsy, that is water in the belly, and
Dhatus. The name for this Kumbhaka is Ujjayi. It can be
practised even when walking or standing.


Sitali Kumbhaka

 Draw up
the breath through the tongue with the hissing sound Sa. Retain
it as before. Then slowly exhale through both the nostrils. This
is called Sitali Kumbhaka.

 Sitali
Kumbhaka cools the body. It destroys gulma or the chronic
dyspepsia, Pliha (a disease of the spleen), consumption, bile,
fever, thirst and poison.

 Sit in
Padmasana with belly and neck erect. Close the mouth and exhale
through the nostrils. Then inhale a little up to the neck so
that the breath will fill the space, with noise, between the
neck and skull. Then exhale in the same way and inhale often and
often. Even as the bellows of a smith are moved stuffed within
with air and then let out, so you should move the air within the
body. When you get tired, inhale through the right nostril. If
the belly is full of Vayu, press well the nostrils with all your
fingers except the forefinger. Perform Kumbhaka and exhale
through the left nostril.

 This
removes the inflammation of the throat. It increases the
digestive gastric fire within. It enables one to know the
Kundalini. It produces purity, removes sins, gives pleasure and
happiness and destroys phlegm which is the bolt or obstacle to
the door at the mouth of Brahmanadi or the Sushumna.

 It pierces
also the three Granthis or knots differentiated through the
three modes of Nature or Gunas. The three Granthis or knots are
Vishnu Granthi, Brahma Granthi and Rudra Granthi. This Kumbhaka
is called Bhastrika. This should be especially practised by the
Hatha Yogic students.


The Three Bandhas

 The Yogic
student should now practise the three Bandhas. The three Bandhas
are: the Mula Bandha, the Uddiyana Bandha and the Jalandhara
Bandha.

 Mula
Bandha: Apana (breath) which has a downward tendency is forced
up by the sphincter muscles of the anus. Mula Bandha is the name
of this process.

 When Apana
is raised up and reaches the sphere of Agni (fire) then the
flame of Agni grows long, being blown about by Vayu.

 Then, in a
heated state, Agni and Apana commingle with the Prana. This Agni
is very fiery. Through this there arises in the body the fire
that rouses the sleeping Kundalini through its heat.

 Then this
Kundalini makes a hissing noise. It becomes erect like a serpent
beaten with a stick and enters the hole of Brahmanadi or the
Sushumna. Therefore, the Yogins should practise daily Mulabandha
often.

 The
Uddiyana Bandha: At the end of the Kumbhaka and at the beginning
of expiration, Uddiyana Bandha should be performed. Because
Prana Uddiyate, or the Prana goes up the Sushumna in this Bandha,
the Yogins call it Uddiyana.

 Sit in the
Vajrasana. Hold firmly the two toes by the two hands. Then press
at the Kanda and at the places near the two ankles. Then
gradually upbear the Tana or the thread or the Nadi which is on
the western side first to Udara or the upper part of the abdomen
above the navel, then to the heart and then to the neck. When
the Prana reaches the Sandhi or the junction of the navel,
slowly it removes the impurities and diseases in the navel. For
this reason, this should be practised frequently.

 The
Jalandhara Bandha: This should be practised at the end of Puraka
(after inhalation). This is of the form of contraction of the
neck and is an impediment to the passage of Vayu (upwards).

 The Prana
goes through Brahmanadi on the western Tana in the middle, when
the neck is contracted at once by bending downwards so that the
chin may touch the breast. Assuming the posture as mentioned
before, the Yogi should stir up Sarasvati and control Prana.
