Kundalini is a Sanskrit word meaning “coil”. Kundalini is the dormant life force that lies at the base of the spine in the Muladhara chakra. The Chakras in the human body are in shape of multicolored lotus petals or spoke wheels. The chakras whirl at various speeds and thus process the energy within the body. The chakras are connected to each other and throughout the body through the subtle channels called Naadis. When the Kundalini energy is awakened, it moves upward, piercing these chakras. There are seven major chakras in a human body and they are Muladhar Chakra, Swadhishtthan Chakra, Manipur Chakra, Anahat Chakra, Vishuddha Chakra, Aagya Chakra and Sahastrar Chakra. With the practice of the Kundalini Yoga, the life force (Prana) moves through these subtle channels of the body (Naadis) and reaches the center in the brain in the Sahastrar Chakra or Crown Chakra.
Kundalini Yoga is a path to holistic healing. Practicing Kundalini yoga liberates an aspirant from the veils of illusion (Maya) and enables him to surpass the effects of the earthly possessions. Kundalini yoga awakens the untapped energy in the base of the spine and drives it upwards to reach the Crown Chakra. As the potential energy reaches the Crown Chakra, the practitioner is enlightened with a divine insight and experiences the union with the Omnipotent. There are four stages in Kundalini awakening and they are – Arambha (Awakening stage), Ghata (Cleansing stage), Parichaya (Absorption stage) and Nishpatti (Final stage).
Kundalini Yoga involves practice of certain asanas, in combination with proper breathing techniques known as Pranayama. This proper breathing technique liberates the energy in the lower part of the body and allow it to move in the upward direction. The sequence with which the Kundalini energy moves up the body is known as the Kriyas. Kriyas involve repetitive movements of the body through different yoga postures and breathing in a specific way. Meditation is also a key part of Kundalini Yoga practice. M editatio n channels the thoughts and awareness of the mind into a positive direction and spiritually transforms the inner state of mind.
Practicing Kundalini yoga not only leads an individual to the healthy life but also gifts enhanced intuition and mental clarity to him. In this regard, music plays an important role. It is an established fact that music has always been the best accelerator, healer and concentrator. Music helps to calm the senses and incites a peaceful feeling within oneself. A soothing music penetrates deep into a wandering mind and binds it to a fixed focus. In the process, music enhances one’s ability to concentrate and helps him in meditating. Music connects an individual to higher spheres and open meditative and religious moods in him. Right kind of meditation music invokes powerful and inspiring mood and creates an apt ambiance for meditation.
It is also a recognized fact that music and sound have a profound effect on the feeling and mental states of an individual. There is an inseparable relationship between music and yoga. Since ancient times, in ashramas, various musical instruments were used that supported the yoga training. In contemporary times as well, different kinds of yoga music invoke strong moods and influence the subtle energy fields within the practitioner and direct their consciousness towards higher realms.
