Kundalini and Kundalini Syndrome

The phenomena of kundalini awakening is a concept derived from Tantric yoga and is part of a rich theory describing what is usually termed the “human energy anatomy.” The idea of “energy anatomy” is that there are aspects to human anatomy that are not physical and that cannot be perceived with the physical senses. Included here are ideas of chi and prana (also called “vital energy” or “etheric energy” by Western authors), meridians (which are the basis of acupuncture), nadis, chakras and kundalini. Kundalini is a component of the human energy anatomy. According to Tantric theory and bodies of though derived from it, there is within the subtle body, in a region corresponding to the base of the spine, a latent “energy” – the kunalini – that, when brought into manifestation confers both enlightenment (i.e. mystical experience) and a variety of psychic powers to the aspirant.

The idea of kundalini is almost always discussed in the context of the chakra system. The chakras are revolving vortexes, depicted as flower-like in appearance, at specific locations along the spinal axis within the subtle body. For your purposes here it is enough to say that awakening of the kundalini means the progressive ascent of the kundalini through each of the chakras, heightening the activity of that chakra and conferring expanded ablilities (i.e. pyschic powers and states of  health) associated with  that chakra.

The manifestation of the kundalini is  called the “awakening” of the kundalini to stress that it is latent and must be made active. The traditional means by which the kundalini is awakened involve a variety of yoga exercises passed down through the centuries including specific breath exercises and purificatory rites. However, it is also known that acts such as falling or getting hit on the head may trigger spontaneous kundalini awakening.

The manifestation of kundalini awakening and the goal of the practices leading to kundalini awakening, is the experience of enlightenment, also called satori, cosmic consciousness, or the mystical experience. Enlightenment is a direct apprehension of the unity of the cosmos,  a direct apprehension and identification with the transcendental essence of life and consciousness. Its essence is a “direct knowing” and clear comprehension into “the scheme of things”. Enlightenment has been an aspect of Eastern religious thought since the beginning of known history and plays as central role in Tantric theory as it does in any other aspect of Eastern thought.
