Objective experience not the ultimate
Kundalini yoga is a part of the tantric tradition. Even though you may have already
been introduced to yoga, it is necessary to know something about tantra also. Since
ancient times, wise men have realized that the mind can be expanded and that
experiences do not necessarily depend on an object. This means that if somebody is
playing music, I can hear it, and if somebody has painted a picture, I can see it, but I can
also see if there is no picture, and I can hear if there is no music. This is also a quality of
man's personality which has been ignored in the last 150 to 200 years.
Tantra says that the range of mental experience can be broadened. With the help of
the senses, your mind can have an experience based on an object. There can be an
experience within the framework of time, space and object, but there can also be an
experience beyond the framework of time, space and object. The second form of
experience can happen when the present mind expands beyond its given definitions and
borders, and when this experience occurs, energy is released from yourself.
For hundreds of years, people have been talking about an experience called nirvana,
moksha, emancipation, self-realization, salvation or liberation, without understanding it
properly. Yogis call this experience samadhi. Although many people think that in
samadhi or nirvana everything is completely finished, it is definitely not a process of
quitting the world. Nothing finishes, only one level of experience ends, but then another
Since the dawn of creation, the tantric and yogis have realized that in this physical
body there is a potential force. It is not psychological, philosophical or transcendental; it
is a dynamic potential force in the material body, and it is called kundalini. This
kundalini is the greatest discovery of tantra and yoga. Scientists have begun to look into
this, and a summary of some of the latest scientific experiments is included in this book.
We can see from this research that science is not actually going to discover anything new
in this field. It is only rediscovering and substantiating what yogis discovered many,
many centuries ago.
