कुंडलिनी जागरण मन्त्र प्रयोग भाग 4
ऊं गं गणेशाय नमः:
ऊं ऐं सरस्वत्यै ऐं नमः :
ऊं नमः निखिलेश्वरायै : कुण्डलिनी शक्ति
परमपिता का अर्द्धनारीश्वर भाग शक्ति कहलाता है यह ईश्वर की पराशक्ति है (प्रबल लौकिक ऊर्जा शक्ति)। जिसे हम राधा, सीता, दुर्गा या काली आदि के नाम से पूजते हैं। इसे ही भारतीय योगदर्शन में कुण्डलिनी कहा गया है। यह दिव्य शक्ति मानव शरीर में मूलाधार में (रीढ की हड्डी का निचला हिस्सा) सुषुप्तावस्था में रहती है। यह रीढ की हड्डी के आखिरी हिस्से के चारों ओर साढे तीन आँटे लगाकर कुण्डली मारे सोए हुए सांप की तरह सोई रहती है। इसीलिए यह कुण्डलिनी कहलाती है।
जब कुण्डलिनी जाग्रत होती है तो यह सहस्त्रार में स्थित अपने स्वामी से मिलने के लिये ऊपर की ओर उठती है। जागृत कुण्डलिनी पर समर्थ सद्गुरू का पूर्ण नियंत्रण होता है, वे ही उसके वेग को अनुशासित एवं नियंत्रित करते हैं। गुरुकृपा रूपी शक्तिपात दीक्षा से कुण्डलिनी शक्ति जाग्रत होकर ६ चक्रों का भेदन करती हुई सहस्त्रार तक पहुँचती है। कुण्डलिनी द्वारा जो योग करवाया जाता है उससे मनुष्य के सभी अंग पूर्ण स्वस्थ हो जाते हैं। साधक का जो अंग बीमार या कमजोर होता है मात्र उसी की यौगिक क्रियायें ध्यानावस्था में होती हैं एवं कुण्डलिनी शक्ति उसी बीमार अंग का योग करवाकर उसे पूर्ण स्वस्थ कर देती है।
इससे मानव शरीर पूर्णतः रोगमुक्त हो जाता है तथा साधक ऊर्जा युक्त होकर आगे की आध्यात्मिक यात्रा हेतु तैयार हो जाता है। शरीर के रोग मुक्त होने के सिद्धयोग ध्यान के दौरान जो बाह्य लक्षण हैं उनमें यौगिक क्रियाऐं जैसे दायं-बायें हिलना, कम्पन, झुकना, लेटना, रोना, हंसना, सिर का तेजी से धूमना, ताली बजाना, हाथों एवं शरीर की अनियंत्रित गतियाँ, तेज रोशनी या रंग दिखाई देना या अन्य कोई आसन, बंध, मुद्रा या प्राणायाम की स्थिति आदि मुख्यतः होती हैं ।
मानव शरीर आत्मा का भौतिक घर
हमारे ऋषियों ने गहन शोध के बाद इस सिद्धान्त को स्वीकार किया कि जो ब्रह्माण्ड में है, वही सब कुछ पिण्ड (शरीर) में है। इस प्रकार मूलाधार चक्र से आज्ञा चक्र तक का जगत माया का और आज्ञा चक्र से लेकर सहस्त्रार तक का जगत परब्रह्म का है।
वैदिक ग्रन्थों में लिखा है कि मानव शरीर आत्मा का भौतिक घर मात्र है। आत्मा सात प्रकार के कोषों से ढकी हुई हैः- १- अन्नमय कोष (द्रव्य, भौतिक शरीर के रूप में जो भोजन करने से स्थिर रहता है), २- प्राणामय कोष (जीवन शक्ति), ३- मनोमय कोष (मस्तिष्क जो स्पष्टतः बुद्धि से भिन्न है), ४- विज्ञानमय कोष (बुद्धिमत्ता), ५- आनन्दमय कोष (आनन्द या अक्षय आनन्द जो शरीर या दिमाग से सम्बन्धित नहीं होता), ६- चित्मय कोष (आध्यात्मिक बुद्धिमत्ता) तथा ७- सत्मय कोष (अन्तिम अवस्था जो अनन्त के साथ मिल जाती है)। मनुष्य के आध्यात्मिक रूप से पूर्ण विकसित होने के लिये सातों कोषों का पूर्ण विकास होना अति आवश्यक है।
प्रथम चार कोष जो मानवता में चेतन हो चुके हैं शेष तीन आध्यात्मिक कोश जो मानवता में चेतन होना बाकी हैं उपरोक्त सातों काषों के पूर्ण विकास को ही ध्यान में रखकर महर्षि श्री अरविन्द ने भविष्यवाणी की है कि “आगामी मानव जाति दिव्य शरीर (देह) धारण करेगी”।
श्री अरविन्द ने अपनी फ्रैन्च सहयोगी शिष्या के साथ, जो माँ के नाम से जानी जाती थीं, अपनी ध्यान की अवस्थाओं के दौरान यह महसूस किया कि अन्तिम विकास केवल तभी हो सकता है जब लौकिक चेतना (जिसे उन्होंने कृष्ण की अधिमानसिक शक्ति कहा है) पृथ्वी पर अवतरित हो।
साधक की कुण्डलिनी चेतन होकर सहस्त्रार में लय हो जाती है, इसी को मोक्ष कहा गया है।
रोज सुबह ब्रम्ह-मुहूर्त मे स्नान आदि क्रियाओसे निवृत्त होकर पूर्व दिशा की और मुख करके गुरुमंत्र,चेतना मंत्र,गायत्री मंत्र का जाप करे माला स्फटिक/रुद्राक्ष का होना चाहिये आसान,वस्त्र पीले/लाल रंग के हो,यह सारी क्रिया होने के बाद 9-10 मिनट तक कुंडलिनी के प्रत्येक चक्र पर ध्यान केन्द्रित करना है और इस तरहा से रोज ध्यान के क्रिया का समय आगे बढ़ाना है,ध्यान क्रिया के बाद नित्य 1 माला तन्त्रोक्त कुंडलिनी जागरण मंत्र का जाप प्रारम्भ करना है,अभी तो गर्मी के दिन चल रहे है इसलिये 1 ही माला करे,जब गर्मी के दिन समाप्त होने लगेगे तो आप इस मंत्र का ज्यादा-से-ज्यादा माला मंत्र जाप कर सकते है॰इस साधना मे आपको नित्य सदगुरुदेवजी का मानसिक रूप मे आज्ञा लेना जरूरी है यह मेरा आपसे निवेदन है॰

मंत्र जाप समाप्ती के बाद साधना गुरुचरनोमे समर्पित कीजिये ,इस साधना मे पहिले ही दिन से अनुभूतिया मिलने लगता है॰
The human body is the most excellent boon conferred by the Almighty and the person who comprehends his own body completely, realises the subtle mysteries of the entire universe. All universal faculties are concentrated as the force of life inside a human body which the scriptures term as the vital power (Pran Shakti). The condensed form of the same vital forces is known as 'Kundalini Shakti' which is the rock bottom of all the energies and power of action inherent in a human being. As this divine power remains dormant just like the coil of a snake, it has been designated as 'Kundalini Shakti' or the 'serpent Power'. For the purpose of Self-Realisation, a man through his 'Sushumna' (spine) tries to uplift this Kundalini Shakti in an upward tract and crossing all the Chakras (subtle spinal centres) tries to unite it with 'Sahastrar'.
When the aspirant emerges successful in his endeavour, he gets divine vision and visualising his real form though his divine eye, he feels overwhelmed with ecstasy and thus liberates himself from the corporeal bondages of life and death.
What is the Kundalini? Why is it so significant in life?
At the base of the spinal cord every human being has a powerful, yet dormant source of energy. This source is known as the Muladhar Chakra from which three subtle channels known as Naadis rise up through the spine and reach thew brain. The middle Naadi is known as Sushumna while on its either sides are the Ida and Pingla. At five other centres of highly concentrated energy, called Chakras, along the spinal column, these three Naadis come together and then again divide into three channels as they rise further.
Thus including the Muladhar there are various Chakras in which very powerful energy lies dormant and once they are activated a human gains amazing divine powers like Telepathy, Hypnotism, Clairvoyance. In fact complete success in life in any and every sphere can come only through the activation of all the Chakras and it is with this aim that true Yogis remain engaged in Sadhanas.
But this process can be very intricate and difficult unless one is helped by an enlightened Master who has his own Kundalini fully activated, who is aware of all the processes of activation and who can activate the Kundalini of others.
Benefits of Kundalini Activation:
Inside the vertebral column, there are seven lotuses located on the Brahma Nadi. These are known as Chakra (spinal centres). Each lotus possesses different number of petals and also a distinct colour.
Amazing powers devolve on a human on activation of the Kundalini and each Chakra is related to the following attainments.
1. Muladhar Chakra
This Chakra is situated in the basal region of the vertebral column at the mid spot between anus and penis. In meditation, this Chakra is visualised as a red lotus possessing four petals. This is the resting place of the Kundalini Shakti, which lies here as a snake having three and half coil. This Chakra is the symbol of Earth element.
Activation of this results in riddance from tensions, true happiness, beauty, perfect health and physical strength, magnetic persona.
2. Swadhishtthan Chakra
This Chakra is located in the vertebral column just opposite to the penial region. In meditation, this Chakra is visualised as a vermilion coloured lotus having six petals. This semilunar Chakra is the symbol of Water element.
Activation of this results in freedom from stomach ailments, increase in sex power, and cure of sexual debility, increase in courage and fearlessness and magnetism.
3. Manipur Chakra
Inside the vertebral column, this Chakra is situated just opposite to the naval region. This ten petalled lotus is of blue colour. The Yantra of this Chakra is triangular in shape and it represents the fire element.
Activation of this results in perfect digestion, riddance from ailments like kidney stones, diabetes, liver problems etc. Success in amazing Sadhanas like flying in the air, walking on water, telepathic contact with animals and plants, perfection in Prannayam and the highest achievement is success in Meditation.
4. Anahat Chakra
The relative position of this Chakra inside the vertebral column is just opposite to the cardiac region (heart). This red coloured lotus possesses twelve petals and it represents the Air element. Activation of this Chakra illuminates the entire body and the entire vertebral column starts vibrating.
Activation of this results in peace of mind, boundless divine joy, total freedom from tensions, power to look into future, power of hypnosis, entering into Samadhi (divine trance), riddance from problems related to heart, increase in soft emotions like love, affection and kindness.
5. Vishuddha Chakra
Inside the vertebral column this Chakra is located opposite the throat region. This lotus of smoky colour possesses sixteen petals and it represents the sky element.
Activation of this results in riddance from all ailments related to throat, thyroid etc., increase in knowledge, gain of power of eloquence, deeper Samadhi, perfection in the art of Hypnotism, gain of power to die when one wills, total material success like comforts, wealth, fame etc.
6. Aagya Chakra
In Brahma Nadi (enclosed by vertebral column) this Chakra is located just opposite the mid spot between the two eyebrows. This white lotus has only two petals.
Also called the Third Eye its activation brings wondrous powers like clairvoyance, telepathy, power of giving curses or blessings, instant fulfillment of anything one wishes, and gain of knowledge related to all subjects and sciences, power to control thoughts of others and interfere even in nature.
7. Sahastrar Chakra
Beyond these six Chakras at the upper termination of the spinal cord, is the thousand petalled lotus; the abode of Lord Shiva (supreme being). When the Kundalini Shakti unites itself with the supreme being, the aspirant gets engrossed in deep meditation during which he perceives infinite bliss.
This is a subtle centre in the brain. On activation of Sahastraar a very fine, elixir-like secretion is produced from it which permeates the whole body thus making the human forever free of all ailments.
Sahastrar Chakra is also termed as Dasham Dwar of Brahmarandhara. In my view, this Chakra is situated two inches deep inside both the temporal region and three inches deep from the midspot between the eyebrows that is in the middle portion of cerebral hemispheres. From the throat, it is located three inches above the palate and inside the brain it is located in a small hole above the 'Maha Vivar' foramen of cerebrum.
Awakening of Sahastrar renders the aspirant liberated from corporeal bondages and attachments. He is endowed with all kinds of divine attainments including 'Ashta Siddhi' and 'Nava Nidhi'. He becomes an omniscient Yogi. Being emancipated from the cycles of birth and death, he certainly achieves the final beatitude.
One is fully enlightened and can then envision any event going on anywhere in the universe with out entering into Samadhi. All natural elements come under one’s control.
The practice of awakening Kundalini Shakti must be done only under the guidance of a competent Guru. Sometimes when the aspirant practices such exercises only after going through some books, he endangers his own life and there are chances of his becoming insane.
Really, fortunate is the person who attains his divine Guru. That person is fortunate who strives for awakening of the Kundalini Shakti and only that person is called God-illumined who after activating his Kundalini Shakti, gets the totality of life.
Different ways of activation:
There are several means to this goal - through Mantra, through Diksha ( or transfer of Divine energy from Guru to disciple), Kriya Yog, Prannayam, Ras Vigyan (use of consecrated and Samskarised mercury) and even Ayurvedic herbs and potions.
Yet the best way is of Mantra Sadhana for it is the most safe and can be tried by anyone. When Kundalini is activated there is a tremendous gush of energy which can cause great harm if not properly channelised through the body. But the Mantra Sadhana process is a slow and steady method totally free of such risk. Moreover this is done under the guidance of an accomplished Guru who can fully control the Kundalini. In this Mantra process the six Chakras are activated one at a time and there are seven stages of this Sadhana.
Whatever the mode of activation a Guru is a must for during the process as the divine powers in the body come to life they attack the Sadhak’s weaknesses like greed, jealousy, infatuation, anger, false ego and other negative traits. Sometimes the struggle between these positive (Kundalini) and negative energies can be so intense that a person may lose balance of mind or his evil traits may appear so magnified to him that he may take to wrong ways in life.
But if there is a Guru guiding each step of the process the negative energies can never come out on the top in this struggle. That is why the Guru also suggests Guru Mantra Sadhana for the power of Guru is so strong that it can annihilate all evil traits of the Sadhak.
It is also important to note that there are different Mantras for the activation of six Chakras. One may accomplish Sadhana pertaining to a Chakra and still not experience anything. Remember it is not a miracle we are working. It is a slow and steady process and sometimes it is after some months that suddenly one becomes aware of the activation of the concerned Chakra.
In truth after Sadhana the activation takes place when the Sadhak feels most purified and free of his negative traits. One should hence continue with Sadhana of other Chakras even if no immediate results seem forthcoming.
Sometimes two or three Chakras have been seen to be activated all of a sudden at one go.
How can Kundalini be activated ?
The first step is taking Guru Diksha and later praying to the Guru for Kundalini Jagran Diksha ( Diksha for activation of the Kundalini). After this the Guru suggests certain Mantra Sadhanas through which the Kundalini can be fully activated.
The six Sadhanas can be completed within a period of six months. It is not a rule that one can try the Sadhana of the next Chakra only after the first one has been activated. One can complete all the Sadhanas one after the other without waiting for results. Most of the times the Chakras get activated several days after the completion of Sadhana , sometimes even two or three Chakras at one go.
Preparation for Activation
Remember, one should never attempt such activation himself since such practices if performed without being guided by a Guru create various problems. Once it so happened that a disciple of mine gained some preliminary knowledge of this activation from me and then on returning back to his home, he started trying to activate his Kundalini Shakti. But his Kundalini deviated from the right course as a sequel to which, he started vomiting blood. In a state of terrible fear, he rushed to me and with a great difficulty, through Yogic Sadhana, I stopped the vomiting of the blood. Then he came to know that during his attempt, his Kundalini Shakti left the proper direction which resulted in vomiting of the blood. By this incident it is clear that the Guru keeps on watching the right course of Kundalini Shakti ascending in the body of a disciple and therefore without a Guru, one should never attempt such practices.
Now I am revealing some fundamental practices for activation of Kundalini shakti which every aspirant should put to application-
First of all the aspirant should purify his body with the aid of Neti, Dhyoti and Vasti.
After that, the aspirant should practice eight kinds of Pranayam (Yogic exercises). He may also practice some other Yogic exercises besides Pranayam.
Now the aspirant should learn from his Guru the essential mudras such as Mahamudra, Mahavedha, Mahabandh, Viparitakarani, Taran, Paridhan, Yuktichalan and Shaktichalani.
The aspirant, having perfected all Yogic exercises should concentrate his psyche on 'Chakra' according to the method of 'Raj Yog'.
Daily Routine -
1.Get up at five in the morning.
2. Practice both kinds of Bhrastika Pranayam (fast breathing) five to twenty five times.
3. Practice both kinds of Shaktichalini Mudra five to ten times.
4.Practice Taran Mudra with four to hundred & one Pranayam.
5.Practice Praridhan Yukti Chalan Mudra.
6. At last perform mental exercises of activating 'Chakra'.
The morning time should be devoted to all such exercises. In case you are not able to have ample time in the morning, you should exercise the following practices daily in the evening-
1.Mahamudra - Five to twenty five times on each leg.
2.Mahabandha - Five to twenty five times on each leg.
3.Mahavedh - Both kinds of Mahavedh five to ten times.
4.Viparitkarani Mudra - Five to ten times.
5.The rest part of the time should be utilised for practice of activating 'Chakra'.
The aspirant who practices regularly all the above mentioned exercises derives early success. At an initial stage he may experience increased perspiration from his skin but gradually this perspiration will diminish and then he will perceive a lightening sensation in his entire body. After that he is likely to experience the movement of 'Pran Shakti' (life force) in the manner of crawling of an ant. Then he will experience the upliftment of Kundalini Shakti and also the activation of Muladhar Chakra.
When such a stage arrives, the aspirant while remaining in the company of Guru should practice regularly because when the serpent power, crossing 'Muladhar Chakra' ascends upwards, it may change its proper tract as a sequel to which some strange complaints associated with the blood circulation may supervene. But there is no possibility of occurrence of such dangerous situations provided one is acting as per the directive of his Sadguru.
At an advanced stage, when this life current enters the Sushumna, the aspirant may suffer from a gripping sensation around his waist, chest or neck but in a situation like this, he need not worry at all since this temporary bondage gets opened after few days' exercises.
