“The knowledge of kundalini, the cosmic energy of creation, and the chakras, the psychic energy centers, is one of the greatest contributions of yoga to humanity. When the kundalini descends through the chakras, she brings our material being into existence. When she awakens, we return with her to the source of our being. All the systems and practices of yoga were originally intended to open the chakras and awaken the kundalini. This is our ultimate destiny as human beings and the essence of yoga.”
Swami Satyadharma Saraswati.
