Richard Sauder on Kundalini


Richard Sauder: [...] I do not doubt for a minute that the goal of all of the chemical additives, pharmaceutical compounds, electronic mind control and myriad other methods of body and mind control is to prevent humanity from achieving its natural, glorious potential. Sure, the dampening of the Kundalini is part of that. 

For me the Kundalini is nothing more nor less than the conscious, cosmic life force and energy that pervades the universe from the smallest micro- to the largest macro-level and all points and levels between. It is at once supremely powerful, and yet exquisitely subtle and delicate beyond the capacity of the ordinary human mind to comprehend. Imagine mind-boggling, stupendous force on the level of a galactic power source with billions of huge stars and their solar systems in its orbit, simultaneously intimately informed by the nimble grace of a delicate butterfly, or the lilting mating call of a tiny bird rustling in a garden shrub as it searches out a nesting location on a beautiful spring day, or the intricate spirals of an infinitude of sub-atomic particles incessantly spinning through the void of creation for billions of years! 

World without end, amen! 

That's the Kundalini, and so much more. And it's all alive and bursting with grace, real spiritual grace, and power and consciousness and staggering self- and other-awareness that will leave you open-mouthed with amazement and astonishment. That's what the miserable wretches that are trying to impose their pathetic totalitarian control over this planet do not want you to know! They don't want you to have that! They want you poverty stricken, on your knees with fear and trembling, vulnerable, stupid, ignorant, weak, sickly, malnourished, confused, sad, downcast, exploited, under- and mis-educated, manipulable, helpless, propagandized.
By way of contrast, the well-balanced and fully risen Kundalini is inspiring, invigorating, enlightening, uplifting, encouraging, sane, supremely intelligent, self-confident, bright, energetic, healthful, cheerful, hopeful, creative, communicative and so forth.

The present rulers of this planet often despise and persecute people in whom the Kundalini manifests, if even partially. That is one reason we have had witch burnings, and so many other pogroms throughout history. 

To my knowledge there have been few, if any, serious scientific studies of the Kundalini. It is in the nature of modern science, which is very materialistic and reductionist in its philosophy and methods, to ignore or ridicule phenomena such as the Kundalini. So I am not aware of much research or investigation in this regard. 

Ideally, one who endeavors to awaken the kundalini using such techniques as meditation on the chakras, self-hypnosis, chanting, various types of yoga, etc. should first purify his or her body, mind and emotions. Otherwise, blockages in the mind, body and/or emotions can lead to physical, emotional or even psychiatric complications of diverse sorts, maybe even with fatal consequences. Playing with the Kundalini is not something you try for one weekend because you are bored. The energies involved can be very stupendous – imagine an actual lightning bolt blasting up your spine and out the top of your head! That is what it can feel like. Now appreciate how such energies could harm someone whose emotional make-up was unstable, whose mind is fearful, or whose body is weak, sickly or malnourished.

I have found the books of Gopi Krishna very interesting and helpful. His Kundalini awakening was powerful, sustained and prolonged. Lee Sannella, M.D. has written a little book, The Kundalini Experience, from a more clinical and scientific perspective. These are some of the books I have found helpful and enlightening. There is a great deal more information about the kundalini out there in books, magazines and articles, some of it good, some of it bad – a great deal of it is written by people who do not always know what they are talking about, unfortunately. 

In general, I suppose the guide for the Kundalini is like everything else in life – try to be respectful of yourself and others, try to love the Earth and other life forms, shun warfare, embrace peace, strive to understand life and the universe and your place in it, ask for guidance and help, meditate on the heart chakra – I believe it to be the best and master chakra, and have an attitude of reverent awe and appreciation for the wonder of creation and the opportunity to be alive and aware and taking part in it all.
