From Kundalini page 21
The air is inhaled slowly through the left nostril (which is connected with the lunay channel, Ida¯Wink while right nostril is closed with the thumb. The breath is then held, while meditating on the seed-sound syllable Yam, and exhaled in the correct rhythm. The same procedure is repeated using the right nostril (which is connected with the solar channel, Pingala¯Wink and the seed-sound syllable Ram. Ida¯ and Pingala¯, as they rise from the region of the coccyx, entwine around the Suchumna¯, crossing from side to side at nodes between the chakras. (It is interesting to note that the same spiral pattern is seen in the double-helix configuration of the DNA-molecule containing the genetic code of life.) In the practice of Pra¯na¯ya¯ma, these pathways are purified (cleansing of the na¯di¯s) to allow the free flow of psychic forces.

During this yogic discipline, the primal sound Om (A-U-M), or a similar seed-sound syllable drawn from the Sanskrit alphabet, is uttered repeatedly, not only as a measure of duration, but to provide a sound-vibration which has a connection with the subtle channels and chakras; for each chakra has a corresponding sound and colour, vibrating at different frequencies. Starting with the root chakra and working up to the top of the head, these vibration-rates are given by the Tantric texts as 4, 6, 10, 12, 16, 2, 1000; and the number of 'rays' of tattvas (subtle elements) has been mentioned as 56 for Mu¯la¯dha¯ra, 62 for Sva¯dhistha¯na, 52 for Manipu&merc;ra, 54 for Ana¯hata, 72 for Visuddha and 64 for A&merc;jña.

One of the vital airs of Pra¯na is the Apa¯na, which controls the situation it occupies below the navel region. It is associated with the colours purple and orange, and is linked from below with the fire element. According to the Yoga Kundalini&merc; Upanishad (42-46), 'When one causes the downward Apa¯na to move upwards [by constriction of the sphincter muscles of the rectum], it is known as Mu¯labandha. When the Apa¯na, moving upwards, reaches the region of the fire [element], the flame of fire, caused by the vital air [Pra¯na] to ascend, increases its intensity. When the fire and Apa¯na reach the heated Pra&merc;na, a current is generated in the body. By that current the sleeping Kundalini¯, being very much heated, is roused, and like a snake belaboured with a stick, becomes erect with hissing and by way of entering its hole, reaches the interior of the Brahma-na¯di.'

The cosmic principles moving with the outgoing (i.e. descending) current of vital air are involuted with the starting of the return current. Ascent is to be made in the reverse order to descent. This repeated filling and emptying of breath is the rhythm of the universe itself, sending waves to strike at the root-impulses of Kundalini¯. When Kundalini¯ is struck, she awakens, uncoils (i.e. is dynamized), and begins to rise upwards like a fiery serpent, breaking upon each chakra as she ascends, until the Sakti merges with Siva in laya-yoga (laya=absorption), in deep union, sama¯dhi or enstasis.

It is to the Tantras that we owe the mature development of a system of sound equations (mantra-yoga). Ordinary speech employs sound to express meaning; mantra, the sacral sound, is concerned with sound as being, i.e. with pure sonic vibration. This knowledge did not originate with the Tantras, but with the Vedic yajña and the extreme precision necessary to the original science of sacrifice. The Vedantic meditations of the Upanishads continually invoke the mystic Udgi¯tha (literally 'ultimate song') of the pranava: Om.

With Nandikesvara, one of the earliest masters of Saiva¯gama, all the sounds known through the Sanskrit alphabet are identified as the vocables sprung from the cosmic drum of Siva, i.e. of creation itself. Sound is the paradigm of creation, and its dissolution is re-absorption into its source. While this directly inspired the Indian science of phonetic and morphological systems under Pa¯nini, the famous grammarian of the third century BC, it even more directly strengthened speculation into na¯da (sonic vibration) and its relation to sphota: awakening, manifestation-revelation of being. So that by the time we arrive at the Tantras themselves, there is already a sophisticated working tradition and notational system that is three to four thousand years old.

This composite wisdom was carefully guarded, and only entrusted to those who had the spiritual authority (adhika¯ra) to recognize its significance.


Sure, that's simple. Focus on bringing in lunar nose, then solar nose, and be the DNA microcosm of the universe, surrounded by spiraling energy bands (not snakes!), and finally consumated in the crown where they're "making out." Well at least there is a goal to make it up there! he he..

From all the reading (and writing) I'm doing, I think this book: "Kundalini, The Arousal of the Inner Energy" explains the above best. The only slight unclearness of THIS book is that it uses special characters like d with a dot under it, m with a dot under it, and lines above some vowels. I loved thinking of prana as pray-na and kundalini with the line over is kundalin-I eh? he he.. I looked into the codes in HTML for special characters, I got a basic line above which you see in the above text. HTML doesn't seem to have an a with a line above, so I have to figure out how to solve this.. while leaving it all HTML.. perhaps in my quotes I'll just put dot-below and line-above as characters AFTER the letter, as I did above. Ideas?

May all your Pray-na be joyfully fulfilling. Amen. And so it is. Love n light, Teo Bounce Bounce

Thanks for sharing, Teo.

The breathing exercise is interesting; I was once taught to inhale with the left nostril while closing the right one for a count of 4. Then just holding the breath for a count of 4, then exhaling through the right for a count of 8. Repeat by inhaling on the right etc. Confused Confused Confused

Thank you Teo.
This is a lot of information. I am going to come back at lunchtime and print it all out, so we can spend more time reading and studying it.

DIVINE DISCOURSE BY SWAMI

What is the real secret of the Life? Why scientist is not able to synthesise life from matter and energy?

Ans) When the energy, which is another form of matter only does a special function, that special function or special mechanism or special technology is called as life. Thus, life is the special work of energy. The scientist is unable to make the energy to do this special work. The scientist is unable to know this special mechanism. Thus life is a special know-how or the knowedge of special technology. Since knowledge is power, the life can be called as special power. Let me give you an example. A cook prepared a curry. With the same materials another cook prepared the same curry but with additional taste. This special taste is the life. The taste is not the extra material, which is hidden in the hand of second cook. The taste is only a special knowledge or talent of the second cook. The first cook is scientist and the second cook is God. God does not reveal this one special technology to human beings because the human being always wants to become God due to his inherent egoism and jealousy. Thus God saved the human being from its fall. One should constantly remember this point and constantly surrender to God. The soul in the physical body is only a bundle of qualities and is just a computer chip. This chip is leaving the body in death. Even if you prepare that chip and introduce into the dead body with association of the required energy, the dead body can become only Robot. The difference between the human being and the Robot is this life only. The body of human being is made of living cells. Any cell can be used for cloaning. But any part of Robot is non-living and cannot be used for cloaning. The dead cells of dead body cannot be transformed into living cells, which can alone make the dead person, a living person. The reason is that the mechanism of a living cell cannot be introduced into the dead cell since the scientist is ignorant of it. Therefore, life is a special work of the ordinary inert electro magnetic energy. The energy is inert and since work is also a form of energy, the work is also inert. Special work is also a work. Therefore, life is also inert. The word inert means that it is not independent and is under the control of a controller. When the controller is completely independent, you can call that controller only as life. That independent controller is God. The life is inert with reference to God. Before the life other items of creation are inert since life controls them. The life is called as ‘Para Prakriti’ in Gita, which means that the life is supreme item of the creation. But the creator is more supreme than life and thus most supreme controller. This special working substance is only the inert energy, which is in the hand of the scientist also. This energy is also a form of the matter. When the food is taken, it is converted into this energy. Thus it is not a special energy. Life is only a special work of the same inert energy, which is produced by the conversion of matter or food. Veda also says the same (Annaat Purushah). This special mechanism cannot be known by searching the matter and energy present in a living cell. The taste cannot be found out by searching the materials used for cooking that curry. It is only in the form of knowledge, which should be revealed by the talented cook. When God came in human body as human incarnation, He demonstrated His special knowledge of life by raising a dead body.
