Satguru Sivaya Subramuniyaswami , 1999-01-15
Today Gurudeva welcomes Chundadevan Mahadevan from Malaysia, our newest aspirant monk, who has been staying with Swami Guhabhaktananda of the Divine Life Society in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia for a period of initial monastic training. Chundadevan arrived on Kauai today. Gurudeva then gives a profound explanation of "kundalini yoga," explaining how when the kundalini rises not up through the sushuma current of the spine, but through the sympathetic nervous system, no enlightenment results, but rather the emotions are stimulated. The kundalini energy is sent down to the lower chakras.
Yoga is divine union with Siva. Bhoga is temporary union with passion, sensuality, and anger and jealousy and fear and everything contained within the lower nature. It is only temporary because eventually you get out of it, usually through reincarnation.
Well, thank you for tuning in today and the day after tomorrow and the day following that. That is three days from now. We will be back. Our doors will be open on Cyberspace Ashram. We will talk on many wonderful things.
