“The Kundalini Shakti in the upper part of the the knot of the navel, in the form of eight coils, and remains always covering with its face the Sushumna Nadi…The Great Goddess (the Kundalini) sleeps with her face closing that door”

 -Yogachudmani Upanishad         


Before his passing, B.K.S. Iyengar instructed us to diligently study one of the most foundational vedic texts, The Yogachudmani Upanishad – long called the ‘Crown Jewel of Yoga’. 

This scripture is quite notable for the depth of its discussions of Kundalini and the rich variety of preparatory yogic sadhanas utilized in its awakening.

The gravity of the Kundalini Shakti’s psycho-spiritual force has long been considered equivalent in magnitude to the force of a thousand suns. It’s pictured in its state of brilliant potency at the lowest chakra of the Muladhara. 

Due to its central importance across scriptures it’s has been given many names including: 

  • Kundali
  • Sarasvati 
  • or Atma-shakti – literally meaning ‘the force of the Inner Abiding Self’
