Looking at most of the modern publications1 on Kundalini, it seems obvious that nothing is known of the roots of religious knowledge. According to the quoted ancient sources, Kundalini is the most subtle, the holiest and mightiest force of the universe, which, only under certain circumstances, is accessible to mortals. These superlatives are meant literally. Even the “Rishis”, the saints/sages, who communicated with the Gods themselves were not allowed to awaken the Kundalini in human beings. Bearing this in mind, one should consider carefully advertisements for “Kundalini-Seminars” or similar offers. Kundalini is not a discovery of our times, she has been described thousands of years before Jesus Christ; and the knowledge we have got has come through old Indian scriptures.
In the 6th chapter of the Jnaneshwari the Kundalini and its effects are described. This text again is not easy to understand. The learned and scholars have tried to avoid this very difficult chapter for 700 years, as all written knowledge of the world cannot replace the holy experience. Thus the academics never understood it; and there is one essential point for us: The translations, mainly in English, available in the West, are not correct. They certainly all relate to one original translation, as the mistakes are apparently similar. These errors of translation are probably responsible for the incomprehensible descriptions of Kundalini that we have in the west. For example one of the main mistakes is to suppose that the seat of the Kundalini is in the region of the stomach. This mistake is to be found in the book of Avalon (see FN 1). In the original scriptures nothing of the kind is mentioned. Shankaracharya (8th century AD) says in the Saundarya Lahari (see above) in the 10th verse: “..Thyself assuming the form of a serpent of three-and-a-half coil, sleepest Thou in the hollow of the Kulakunda”. The description refers to the triangular bone, to which we will come back later. Finally, the Devi Bhagawatam should be quoted, book XII, chapter 5, where the Mother of the Worlds (Shri Adi Shakti) is again described as the “Kundalini in the Mooladhar”.
There is a considerable difference between the Mooladhara-chakra
and the Mooladhar which lies above it (sacrum), the
triangular bone at the end of the spine. At the awakening of the
Kundalini, her pulsations can often be seen with the naked eye at the sacrum.
This perception is the best proof of its real position; all other conclusions
do not correspond with the reality. Lying at the basis of the spine, she
rises through the middle channel (Sushumna), which corresponds with the
canalis centralis in the grey matter of the backbone. The
medical term is “Os Sacrum, “holy bone”, taken over directly from
the Greek by the Romans: Its special position was known also in the West,
in ancient times. We know that the Egyptians attributed
this “Os Sacrum” to the God Osiris. In an article of the “Journal
of the American Medical Association” (JAMA” of 1987 it is written: “… the
idea that the sacrum is the last bone in the body
to disintegrate after death and, therefore, necessary for resurrection
could qualify it as sacred. The first Biblical intimation that a
single bone might be the bone needed for resurrection is in Psalms 34,
21: ´He watches over all the bones; one of them shall not be broken…”
- The idea of resurrection or second birth mentioned here is, in various
forms, present in
