Self Realization and Kundalini Awakening

After Self Realization

Self Realization is the awakening of the Kundalini through the central channel, piercing through the six chakras above the sacrum bone and emerging at the top of the head (fontanel bone area) as a gentle "fountain" of coolness. The word fontanelle itself means "little fountain" which shows again the ancient knowledge about this phenomenon of Self Realization.

Self Realization has always been the ultimate goal of all religions and spiritual traditions of the world, but was extremely difficult to attain in the past. It has now become a mass phenomenon achieved effortlessly through Sahaja Yoga, which is Shri Mataji's invaluable gift to humanity.

In Shri Mataji's own words, "Self Realization is the first encounter with Reality". "We have the Mother within ourselves, in our hearts, and if She is awakened, She is going to look after us. She is going to give all the protection that is needed. And there is nothing to be frightened of anything."

"Kundalini cures you, she improves you, she bestows all the blissful things upon you. She takes you away from the worries of the grosser level", says Shri Mataji.

The manifestation of the Kundalini energy is called vibrations , which is an approximate translation of the Sanskrit term Chaitanya. In Shri Mataji's words, "Chaitanya (vibrations) is the integrated force of your physiological, mental, emotional and religious Selves."

Rising of Kundalini which is known as Self Realization

The Kundalini within us resides in the triangular Sacrum bone situated at the base of the spine. Once this extraordinary energy is awakened, it rises up along the spine inside the spinal chord, and passes through all the chakras in our subtle system before opening the "Sahasrara", the last centre on top of our heads. This is how we achieve Yoga or Union with the Spirit within us and thus we become one with the omnipresent power of God.

The Spirit is the reflection of Almighty God, whereas the Kundalini is the reflection of the power of His Desire within us. She is the Primordial Mother, known as the Adi Shakti in the Indian tradition and the Holy Ghost in the Christian tradition. By crossing the fontanelle bone (the little fountain) on top of our heads, the Kundalini actualizes Self Realisation, our second birth or baptism. When that happens, we are distinctly aware of a cool breeze on the palms of our hands and on top of our heads. This is the very same wind of the Holy Ghost that Christ's disciples felt at Pentecost. Before this experience, the Kundalini is dormant, and so only virtual. Once it is awakened and Self Realisation is established in us, it enables the breath of God to become reality.

The Greeks referred to this energy as "Pneuma", Islam speaks of "Rûh", and Christ called it "The Holy Spirit". In Jewish mysticism it was known as "Shekkina" and long time before that, the Sumerians worshipped the Mother Goddess Inanna, who gives spiritual birth and the sacred breath. Several thousands of years ago, "Chaitanya" and "the Self", translated as "Divine Vibrations" in Sahaja Yoga, were already alluded to in India. Therefore, the knowledge of the existence of these vibrations is not something new; it has merely been lost or distorted over the ages.
