Energy & Consciousness
What are we made of, and where did we come from? Are we more than what we perceive as our body, mind, and emotions? If so, how can we tap into this deeper level?
Most of us experience ourselves as body and mind—the “I” that tells us we’re young or old; an accountant or musician; a brother, mother, husband, or wife; happy or dissatisfied. This is what the yogis call abhimana (self-identity). Yogis, on the other hand, experience themselves as much more than this limited set of identifications. They come to actually experience (not just imagine) the cosmic dance of energy that flows through the body, illuminates the mind, activates the pranic pathways, and finally comes to merge with pure consciousness itself.
In this previously unavailable article, Swami Rama distills the wisdom of yoga and tantra to demystify such esoteric concepts as nadis, kundalini, prana, chakras, and cosmic consciousness. He tells us how we can begin to tap into kundalini—the force of life and consciousness that exists in each cell of our body and in everything else, all the way to the stars and galaxies. The inward path of meditation and pranic awareness is the key. This path allows us to tap into the vast reservoirs of our hidden potential.
