Kundalini

August 1st, 2008 by sabrina

Kundalini is the Hindu Goddess of inner power. She is visualized as a snake that lies sleeping at the base of the spine, wrapped three and a half times around the first chakra. When she is awakened, through devotion or yoga, she undulates up through the other chakras to the top of the head, where her lover Shiva is said to reside. Awakening Kundalini and reuniting her with Shiva leads to a divine completeness and inner peace. Kundalini, whose name means “circular power,” is also known as Kundalini Shakti.

    Good blogs about shakti yoga are not that easy to find. It is sometimes amazing to see the diversity of opinions on that subject. Thx for the information!

    Hello and respect, but I believe this icon is of the Bengali form of Lakshmi, not of Kundalini

    Is it? I try my best, but sometimes it’s hard to find good public domain images. Thanks for pointing this out!
