Looking at most of the modern publications1 on Kundalini, it seems obvious that nothing is known of the roots of religious knowledge. According to the quoted ancient sources, Kundalini is the most subtle, the holiest and mightiest force of the universe, which, only under certain circumstances, is accessible to mortals. These superlatives are meant literally. Even the “Rishis”, the saints/sages, who communicated with the Gods themselves were not allowed to awaken the Kundalini in human beings. Bearing this in mind, one should consider carefully advertisements for “Kundalini-Seminars” or similar offers. Kundalini is not a discovery of our times, she has been described thousands of years before Jesus Christ; and the knowledge we have got has come through old Indian scriptures.
In the 6th chapter of the Jnaneshwari the Kundalini and its effects are described. This text again is not easy to understand. The learned and scholars have tried to avoid this very difficult chapter for 700 years, as all written knowledge of the world cannot replace the holy experience. Thus the academics never understood it; and there is one essential point for us: The translations, mainly in English, available in the West, are not correct. They certainly all relate to one original translation, as the mistakes are apparently similar. These errors of translation are probably responsible for the incomprehensible descriptions of Kundalini that we have in the west. For example one of the main mistakes is to suppose that the seat of the Kundalini is in the region of the stomach. This mistake is to be found in the book of Avalon (see FN 1). In the original scriptures nothing of the kind is mentioned. Shankaracharya (8th century AD) says in the Saundarya Lahari (see above) in the 10th verse: “..Thyself assuming the form of a serpent of three-and-a-half coil, sleepest Thou in the hollow of the Kulakunda”. The description refers to the triangular bone, to which we will come back later. Finally, the Devi Bhagawatam should be quoted, book XII, chapter 5, where the Mother of the Worlds (Shri Adi Shakti) is again described as the “Kundalini in the Mooladhar”.
There is a considerable difference
between the Mooladhara-chakra and the Mooladhar
which lies above it (sacrum),
the triangular bone at the end of the spine.
At the awakening of the Kundalini, her pulsations
can often be seen with the naked eye at the sacrum.
This perception is the best proof of its real
position; all other conclusions do not correspond
with the reality. Lying at the basis of the spine,
she rises through the middle channel (Sushumna),
which corresponds with the canalis centralis in the
grey matter of the backbone. The
medical term is “Os Sacrum, “holy bone”,
taken over directly from the Greek by the Romans:
Its special position was known also in the West, in
ancient times. We know that
the Egyptians attributed this “Os Sacrum” to the
God Osiris. In an article of the “Journal
of the American Medical Association” (JAMA” of 1987
it is written: “… the idea that the sacrum is the last bone in the
body to disintegrate after death and, therefore,
necessary for resurrection could qualify it as
sacred. The first Biblical intimation that
a single bone might be the bone needed for
resurrection is in Psalms 34, 21: ´He watches over
all the bones; one of them shall not be
broken…” - The idea of resurrection or second
birth mentioned here is, in various forms, present
