Tales of Awakening.
I have just found out about this "kundalini-l" list and I am so happy to have the chance to communicate with so many of you about our Kundalini experiences. Well, my awakening was so astonishingly simple that one might feel kind of embarassed... but here it is.
I have been interested in Yoga since my teen years. In addition to the usual hatha yoga asanas, I have always tried to deepen my experiences during those relaxation techniques which usually end a hatha yoga class.
Over the years I have kept on trying these techniques on my own, without any guru or teacher, just for my satisfaction. The level of awareness of my subtle system did evolve somewhat, but nothing really spectacular; it was and remained my personal "hobby" to do some internal exploration before sleeping or early in the morning. One day (July 3 1994, how can I forget...) I read on the paper that a course on Sahaja Yoga meditation was offered at the U. of Pennsylvania (where I am a Ph.D. student). I decided to check it out, and... the rest is history (as they say). After a brief introduction of the basic concepts of Yoga and of the subtle system, I was guided through an incredibly simple, 10 min., exercise at the end of which I felt this undescribable column of cool, soothing, breeze shooting out of the top of my head. I was perfectly aware of everything around me,but at the same time completely thoughtless. As I said, this is something that can hardly be expressed in words, it just have to be experienced ! What is Sahaja Yoga ? No, I do not think I can do justice to it, nor to yuour own time, if I start describing this impressive body of experience-based, knowledge. Suffice it to say that it is NOT any cult or new age stuff, there is no guru or supreme master (actually one of its premises is to become your own guru through spontaneous, natural (sahaj means spontaneous) kundalini awakening).
There are about 200,000 people in 60 countries who meditate and evolve on their own or collectively after having had their self-realization with this natural, spontaneous process. There is no effort, no horrible sexual practice, no mesmerizing from a super-guru, no money or power, just your own pure desire for the knowledge of your True Self, for the discovery of Your Spirit and the communion with God. As simple as that.
If you have a pure desire to discover more (as I hope), you can check a home page recently created on the www, and perhaps even have the Experience right there in front of your video (I would actually suggest you to contact someone in your country, but if you are a cyberfanatic...). The site is on: hftp;//www.cs.purdue.edu/homes/costian/sy/more.html
