My First Meditation Experience, My First Kundalini Awakening, Utility and Eligibility, Best Book-Place-Guru-Method for Kundalini Meditation/Awakening


Kundalini Awakening is a must for Yoga (union of individual self/consciousness with the cosmic Self/Consciousness), Brahmajnana, Atmajnana, Self-Knowledge, Self-Realization, Enlightenment, Nirvana, Kaivalya, etc.

Kundalini Yoga is not a type of meditation or a spiritual practice. It means Self-realization or Enlightenment (Yoga) through Kundalini Awakening. Those who are enlightened without Kundalini awakening are fake.

Enlightenment by faking/imagining/pretending/bookish-knowledge is rampant now.


Any type of meditation can awaken your spiritual power/Kundalini, provided your mind becomes still, your breath becomes equanimous, or a momentary NATURAL cessation of breath is achieved during meditation. For any of these 3 (which are not different but complementary to each other), you do not need any book-learning. Silence is the best among the 3. Silence is not a subject to be studied. Whether you meditate at home or outside doesn’t matter but whether you had a meditation experience or not does matter.

Books on Kundalini are filled with many fundas, mumbo-jumbos, theories which are really not true—all figments of someone’s imagination. They will delude you. All books on Kundalini are written by fake people, people who haven't had a single Kundalini experience.


Many drunkards, drug-addicts, marijuana smokers have written/are writing books, blogs, websites/internet content about Kundalini/meditation/spirituality. Such substance abusers have/are answering in internet question and answer forums like reddit, quora, etc. They have explained their hallucinations after abusing substances as Kundalini/meditation/spiritual experiences. If you believe/follow such idiots, you will remain in delusion throughout your life about meditation, Kundalini, spirituality. If you seriously practice what such idiots preach, then you will definitely end up in the hospital, either general or mental hospital.

My First Meditation Experience, My First Kundalini Awakening, My First Kundalini Experience, My first Spiritual Experience:
I had a Kundalini (meditation/spiritual) experience without knowing what Kundalini was. Forget about Kundalini, I did not even know what meditation was. I had not even read a single page of any book on spirituality or meditation.

Following is the story about my first Kundalini experience:

There was an advertisement in a newspaper, something like this -- “Get relief from your stressful life… positive thinking… peace….. Divine Light Meditation….. contact…… 108.
I called up the number; spoke to a lady. She fixed the date, time, and place for the meditation session. I went to the place, met the lady, listened to all the advantages of Divine Light Meditation, started 30 minutes of meditation.

I had a frightening experience, frightening because I got scared by the way it happened and also because nobody had told me what would happen during meditation or how an inner power takes over/seizes you when meditation happens. I was just not ready/prepared. Now I can say my first experience was a beautiful vision of all the colors of the prism and whiteness, but back then when I had zero knowledge of meditation, spirituality, vision, Kundalini, etc., it was not beautiful but scary.

While meditating, I was seeing a very small oval-shaped floater, like a small dot. The background colors were changing from red, yellow, orange, etc., but this floater remained the same, fixed. All of a sudden a force took over/seized my entire body from the inside and the outside that made me immobile. I tried lifting my hands, moving my legs, shouting, closing my eyes, etc., but without any success. My breath became very rapid and heavy. I had horripilation in the entire body, and then the body went numb. After struggling for sometime, I gave up, then my entire concentration/attention shifted to the cloudy whiteness I was witnessing. The floater had disappeared. Then all of a sudden I started seeing the colors of the prism encircling, one upon the other, like that of a shooting target sheet. After the circling of all the colors was complete, the colors started rotating in a dizzying speed. After sometime, the colors started getting zoomed and then vanish gradually one by one and the middle part of the colorful circle, the pure whiteness, started expanding, expanding as if it is getting zoomed, coming closer and closer, and going to envelop or devour me. Everything was becoming a void—full whiteness everywhere. “Now I am finished!”
                          

During this intense frightening experience (as per me back then), I started hearing somebody shouting from very far first, then from very close, then in my ears next, and then somebody forcefully pressing my forehead (Ajna Chakra); I thought, “how dare you press my forehead, who the hell is this…” I opened my eyes and was surprised to see the lady instructor Guru in her desperation, she had been desperately trying to wake me up from my deep meditation. Only then did I realize where I was and what was happening around me. I was in a ladies’ beauty parlor. This was the first time I meditated in my life.

This is how my guru helped me in my meditation, by being an obstruction. She had no clue about what meditation really was. She had never heard from her guru or her guru's guru about deep meditation and what would happen/what should be done when someone really meditates. All modern gurus are clueless about meditation/Kundalini awakening experiences. Some people may shake you and wake you up if you have gone into Samadhi.

A Sadhu told me the following story: Some disciples of a famous guru kicked the hell out of a person who started shaking due to Kundalini awakening. This person was meditating in the ashram of the famous guru. It was a guided meditation session by the guru. Many people were there. During this session, a person started shaking and started uttering unintelligible words. All other people were getting disturbed. The guru and the disciples thought that she is possessed by an evil spirit. On guru's instruction, other disciples lifted, took her out, and started kicking her. Beware of such modern gurus and their disciples!

I hope now you know which is the best place and who is the best guru. As for the requirement of a Guru for Kundalini awakening, my so called Divine Light Meditation lady instructor Guru became an obstacle in my first Kundalini experience. She woke me up from my deep meditation. This incident can tell you whether you require a Guru or not for spiritual awakening.

Back to my experience: The above-mentioned frightening experience was a Kundalini experience. I had a Kundalini experience without knowing what Kundalini was. Forget about Kundalini, I did not know ABC of meditation.

The second time I meditated was after 6 years.

Now after many years of meditation, I know for sure meditation is for spiritual awakening and Self-realization.

For spiritual people, the effect of meditation is that they get a glimpse into their higher/inner Self or spiritual/higher nature of their existence. For those who are not spiritual, meditation helps them gain positive thinking, relief from stress, peace, etc.

If you really want to have a spiritual experience, do silent meditation. BE SILENT. That is the BEST method. Could there be any procedure to be silent? Stop mental activities and what remains is SILENCE.

My Search For a Guru:
A couple of years ago, I started having strange meditation experiences and I wanted to know what they really meant or where I stood in the path of Self-realization. Therefore, I began visiting all kinds of saints and gurus, who lived in as small as a hut to as big as a star hotel questioning them about my meditation experiences. The usual answers from such saints and gurus would be:
"Don’t pay attention to any meditation experiences."
"Just be aware of or observe the Here and Now; all experiences are modifications of the mind."
"Only after washing the guru's langot (loin cloth) and serving him for 12 years will a disciple know something about spirituality."
"You cannot know anything about spirituality unless you become a disciple of a guru, even if the guru is as stupid as an donkey."
"Fly like a bird rather than walk like an ant; we take flight to Self-realization without meditation."
"Live in the present and enjoy the God-gifted life."
"Life is not a mission to accomplish something. Why should you try to acquire something, which is ever-existent in us."
"It is naïve to think of becoming something which we already are."
"Meditation experiences will come and go, you need to know who is experiencing."
"There's nothing to experience, nothing to realize, there is nothing to become; Just Be; we are already Self-realized."
"Once you see the beauty of my God, you will forget about meditation and become mad due to God intoxication and Bhakti!"

All the above answers were given by Ajnaanis, ignorant people, without having any experiential spiritual knowledge. They were just blabbering whatever they had heard, read, or thought about – purely second-hand knowledge.

One size can't fit all, and with such answers, a person who has never had any meditation experience can’t impress upon another who has had many. I continued my intense search lasting several years and was fortunate to meet a Brahmajnani, a Self-realized saint. He answered some of my simple questions. Though I had my own reservations and doubts about his Brahmajnana, I was extremely satisfied with his answers.

The Brahmajnani I met used to live in a small hut built next to a cremation ground beside a river.  He used to speak very little even with his regular visitors.  He used to simply sit and watch/observe the river that was flowing at a distance or the space in front of him – all his time went like this.  During my first visit, I asked him a lot of questions, like his name and birthplace, his type of Sadhana (spiritual practice), which sect he belonged to, etc., to which he never answered.  He did not even look at me.  After an hour or so of observing this observer who was observing something else, I told him some of my meditation experiences and asked him their significance.  He turned towards me from whatever he was observing, looked at me tenderly and said "Good."  Good!  Nobody had ever told me that my experiences were good.  This was enough for me to shoot questions after questions.  Though I asked him several questions regarding meditation and Self-realization, he answered only a few.  I met him thrice and got only a handful of answers.  I was satisfied with all his answers and resumed my meditation.  I started having more meditation experiences and wanted to know about their significance.  Therefore, I went to meet him, but unfortunately, he had left his place without anybody's knowledge.

Brahmajnaani: "There is nothing new to learn. You just need to unlearn. Spirituality is about unlearning. Spirituality is about direct experiential knowledge of oneself. You do not need books, gurus, or others to tell you how to know or experience yourself. The maximum these can do is to direct you toward your Inner Guru. Your Inner Guru is your real guide."

Brahmajnani: "Unless you forget everything and silence your  monkey of a mind, you cannot meditate. There is no Self-knowledge without meditation."

Sadhu: "If one could have spiritual knowledge through bookish proficiency, with my Paanditya (proficiency), I could make anybody turn in his grave. Spiritual knowledge cannot be experienced through book learning. Spiritual knowledge without experience is as good as a man thinking him to be the biological father of a kid without having sex with the kid's mother."

Question: How to know a true guru? How to differentiate between a true and a fake guru?
Answer: By a guru's lifestyle! A lavish lifestyle and a true guru are like water and oil, they don’t mix!

You need to use common sense to differentiate between a fake and a real guru.

If you have had meditation experiences, it becomes as easy as drinking water to differentiate between a true and a fake guru.

ULTIMATE GURU, THE INNER GURU:
Without one's Inner Guru's grace, the best of the best scriptures or gurus will fail to give you a single Kundalini or meditation experience. A good external guru is one who helps you turn toward your Inner Guru for spiritual guidance. Whoever gets the grace of one's Inner Guru is the best disciple and the best spiritual aspirant in the world.

Brahmajnani: "Fake gurus are like dogs and foxes. You should be cautious."
All kinds of animals live in this world. We need to protect ourselves from the dangerous ones.

Q:  What is the use of spirituality, meditation, or Kundalini awakening?
A:  Spirituality, meditation, and Kundalini awakening help you get a glimpse of your true/spiritual nature and then ultimately help you gain Self-Realization/Knowledge. 

Loosening all the knots of the heart leads to Liberation, Freedom from the circle of births and deaths; eternal peace and happiness, Nirvana; and all the benefits that you have read or heard about Self-realization or Enlightenment.

Utility of these lie in understanding the phenomenon called "YOU" in its entirety. Self-knowledge, Self-realization, Atma Jnana, Brahma Jnana, etc., is the ultimate result of Meditation, Spirituality, and Kundalini awakening.

Q:  Who is eligible for Kundalini Awakening, Self-realization (Atma Jnana), Self-knowledge?
A:  The only eligibility criteria for realizing oneself is the NOBLE DESIRE to know the Supreme Self/Reality/Consciousness in oneself and translation of such desire into right efforts.  Just having desire but not exerting or putting the wrong efforts would not lead to Self-realization.


Bhaav bina Bhakti nahi
Bhakti bina Dhyan nahi
Dhyan bina Gyan nahi

Without a spiritually-inclined mind, you cannot have devotion/dedication toward spirituality.
Without devotion/dedication toward spirituality, there is no spiritual meditation.
Without spiritual meditation, there are no spiritual experiences that will ultimately lead to Brahmajnana or Self-realization.

Intelligence, shrewdness, cunningness, smartness, cleverness, or money/muscle power which works wonders in the world does not work here.  The greatest and legendary individuals in all walks of life; the richest, the powerful, and the famous; and all and sundry will not be able to enter their own inner realm with any of their intelligence, achievements, or possessions.  This inner kingdom of heaven can only be entered with an empty mind and with empty hands!  Self-knowledge is the most perfect knowledge in the world!

Atma/Brahma Jnana is for ALL and the very BEST!

WARNING:
It's okay if you don’t meet a Brahmajnani (Self-realized seer) or realize yourself in this life, but never ever meet or follow a BHRAMjnaani (fake guru who will make you delusional).  If you do, then you will suffer your entire life.

Hi Sir, Pranam
I recently found myself inclined towards spirituality and self realisation. So I thought about searching about everything I need to know about it, then I came to your post about, how following a fake guru and incorrect meditation practice can harm you permanently without gaining anything. Thank you so much for saving me. Is there any way I can contact you and learn about meditation from you. I shall be very thankful to you. Please reply what can I do. I have been through a lot in my life lately and after much stress and thinking I landed on this conclusion that there is nothing like going back to self realisation. Please help sir. Thank you again. God bless you.

Hi Ramandeep,
I turned to meditation to get relief from stress (a lot of stress in fact due to 8 years of difficult time), but ended up knowing spirituality but did not pursue it as I did not want it.

As long as a person is happily/unhappily enjoying the world, he/she will not turn to spirituality though he/she may be practicing meditation/spirituality for time pass or as just another additional activity. Many persons become Sadhus/Babas/Sannyasis because they cannot handle their worldly/family difficult situations--these are escapists and they will not succeed in spirituality. Almost 90% akhada babas, buddhist monks, and other sadhus/sannyasis fall under this category (I call them circumstantial babas/sadhus). Many people become sadhus after retirement/old age as they don't have anything else to do. Others become sadhus because they want to become gurus and live a easy and happy life doing nothing but by teaching some bookish/scriptural wrong knowledge. These oldies will make many disciples so that they can get free labour (seva/service) and money (dakshina/donations).

Only those young people who are resourceful and manage all their family/worldly difficult life/situations effectively and who take to meditation/spirituality only for the sake of understanding the reality behind them (not to become guru/make money/escape from family's tough times/get physical or mental benefits, etc) will succeed in meditation and understand spirituality as it is. Such kind of people after managing/settling/discharging all their worldly/family responsibilities effectively will eventually become sadhus/monks. The percentage of such real sadhus is minuscule, may be less than 1% of Indian Sadhus/gurus/monks/sannyasis/babas.

Apart from the info in my blog, there's no extra information required for you as far as meditation/spirituality is concerned. You can comment in this post or any other post after reading all the blogposts (28) if you need any further clarification.

http://kundalini-brahmajnani.blogspot.in/2016/12/links-to-blog-posts-secret-substances.html

Don't comment/seek clarification unless you have read all my posts because all your queries/doubts/questions would have been answered in one or the other post. For example, if you want to learn meditation from me, I would teach the following meditation technique to you:

http://kundalini-brahmajnani.blogspot.com/2016/05/dhyana-or-meditation-techniques-

Whatever I would tell you in person is what I have written in my blog, so no point in contacting me.

There's no one on earth who doesn't face difficult times. Nobody can handle life's difficult situations perfectly all the time, always. All good/bad/difficult/easy times will pass. It's just a matter of time. So bide your time. Do whatever best you can.

Hi sir, Pranam🙏
I have been meditating since I wrote to you last time. I am not following any kind of technique and only doing silence meditation. I have recently had very very frightening experience and I got very scared. it wasn't any kind of pain or body ache and thought if was doing something wrong So I stopped meditation for now. Then I thought about going through your blog to understand what stage this was. I think I am still struggling at TakeOver Let Go stage. I achieved ultimate silence in my mind and body both, and some kind of force was trying to expand in my head and I got scared as if my head will be blown away. Frightened I opened my eyes and felt anxiety for about 2 to 3 hours after this. I want to know if this is normal and what should I do? I feel like meditating from my heart but I don't want to lose the balance of my brain as I felt very anxious that whole day and night too. Thank you again for everything.

Achintya Idam said...

Hi Ramandeep,
Your experience is normal. People get scared in a variety of ways when meditation really starts happening. Now you know that if you open your eyes during meditation, your meditation will be broken and you will find yourself to be normal. Your anxiety is due to fear--you are afraid that something bad will happen to you. Don't worry nothing will happen to you.

The dangers/side effects involved in wrong meditation techniques, which I have mentioned in my blog, start with minor signs/symptoms that develop into illnesses/disorders/diseases over a period of time. You are not doing anything wrong. Do some jogging/physical exercises, make your body and mind strong, and don't fear silence/Takeover. Your fear will gradually disappear with continued deep meditation.

Ramandeep gour said...

Hi sir Pranam 🙏
Thank you so much for having kindly responded to my concerns and queries. Really appreciate your time and support. I am feeling very relieved now. Actually I have a toddler to look after and I am normally very busy during the day with him and household chores. Also I have been running on treadmill everyday for 30 minutes. I hope it will help. I will continue with meditation again. Thank you again for everything. God bless you.

Achintya Idam said...

Hi Ramandeep,
You're welcome! Meditate casually. Running on treadmill helps.
In the midst of heavy/tiresome physical/mental daily activities, if a person is spiritual and attains silence during meditation, Kundalini awakens and re-energizes that person. This is a little secret.

Namaste Achintya..


I need a clarity that if initiated to third eye once in our life.by a guru... . Then is it similar to self / god realization or do we need to do more than that...

Ramandeep gour said...

Hi Achintya sir
Pranam🙏
Hope you're doing well.
I have been meditating but very casually. And sometimes just once a week. I am able to achieve silence in my body and also sometimes a momentary silence in my mind too, but the problem is when the mind starts to become silent then again it tells me "oh I am getting silent " and that's how it starts thinking about things again. And this really is infuriating me. When I wrote to you last time I did progress a lot at that time and then I got scared when it started happening. Now I am not reaching that stage again and I am so angry and don't know what to do. But I do have a few experiences every now and then for e.g. my heartbeat goes very fast and I would become very very hot that my hands and feet would literally sweat.I have also realized that ever since I have started meditation I am feeling good physically and mentally and my night sleep has become so much better like never before. Also I have stopped jogging as it is winter season in the country I am living in because I developed a mild bronchitis after I had a baby. If run or exercise then the cough becomes severe and and I have discomfort in breathing. I keep reading your posts once every week, just to stay inclined towards this. Thank you for everything.

Achintya Idam said...

Hi Ramandeep,
Avoid activities that result in bad health.
Do activities that result in good health.
Food/activities should be adjusted according to season/requirement.
As for meditation experiences, don't be in a hurry. Many so called saints/yogis/santa/sadhus/babas/renunciates of the past and present (crores in numbers) have died/will die without having a single real kundalini experience.
Shubhamastu!

Sudha said...

I feel drilling pain on my third eye area from a very long time and my therapist said it can be due to the sudden activitation of Ajna chakra.

Achintya Idam said...

Hi Sudha,
Both of you are deluded and will suffer. You will suffer for following a wrong meditation technique/teacher/therapist. The therapist will suffer for teaching wrong meditation technique/therapy and for making people like you suffer. Sooner or later.

I guarantee that anybody who meditates on the third eye will have pain/ache/pressure/unnatural sensation in the head and will suffer - sooner or later.

Common sense: Pain/ache/pressure/unnatural sensation is related to Kunndalini or chakra activation is an utter nonsense.
