“The accepted theory that the serpent is evil cannot be substantiated. It has long been viewed as the emblem of immortality. It is the symbol of reincarnation, or metempsychosis, because it annually sheds its skin…It was also believed that snakes swallowed themselves, and this resulted in their being considered emblematic of the Supreme Creator, who periodically reabsorbed His universe back into Himself. (Manly Palmer Hall)”

“The full power of our mental, emotional and spiritual focus”
” Early writing indicates that Kundalini was actually a science of energy and spiritual philosophy before the physical practice was developed.”
“The exact origin of Kundalini Yoga is unknown, but it is thought by many to be the Mother of all Yogas. Developed over the past 5000 years, the earliest known written mention of Kundalini Yoga is in the sacred Vedic texts of the Upanishads (c. 1,000 B.C. – 500 B.C.).”
” Kundalini Yoga is the science to unite the finite with Infinity, and it’s the art to experience Infinity in the finite. -Yogi Bhajan”
“Traditionally, Kundalini Yoga was not taught publicly and students were required to endure years of initiation before they were given access to the spiritual and physical lessons of Kundalini masters. So for thousands of years, the science of Kundalini was actually kept hidden, and the sharing of Kundalini outside an elite community of Indian yoga masters and disciples was forbidden.
It was during a trip to Canada and the USA in 1968 that holy Indian Sikh Yogi Bhajan had a vision of a new spirituality that combined ancient wisdom with the practicalities of modern life.”
“Referred to by practitioners as “the yoga of awareness”, the philosophical purpose of Kundalini is to awaken our Higher Self and to integrate that awakening into our lives and the service and healing of others.”
“Kundalini is awakened through Pranayama, Asanas and Mudras by Hatha Yogis, through concentration by Raja Yogis, through devotion and perfect self-surrender by Bhakti yogis or devotees; through analytical will, by the gyan yogis; ”
“When Kundalini is taken to the Sahasrara, when She is united with Shiva, perfect Samadhi (super-conscious blissful state) ensues. The Yogi drinks the nectar of immortality.
May Mother Kundalini guide you all in your Yogic practices! May Her blessings be upon you all! ~Swami Sivananda~”
