According to Indian Mythology, Brahmaji (creator) had 2 wives. The first was Gayatri and the second was Savitri. Symbolically both are wisdom energy and material wealth. One is Para Prakriti and the other is Apara Prakriti. Para Prakriti encompasses the mind, intellect, psyche, ego, Ritambhara Prajna (divine intellect) etc. The second wife is Savitri. She is called Apara Prakriti, material consciousness or inert nature. All movements and activities of material objects are dependent on it. The movement of atoms, influence of chemicals, electrical heat, light, magnetic force, ether etc. are a part of it. Today material science make use of all these means so as to invent new things and thus helps augment our material comforts. This Apara Prakriti is Savitri. It is also called Kundalini Shakti or Divine Serpent Power.
Various bodily functions of living beings are carried out by Savitri which is material energy or Apara Prakriti. Thus the world progresses. Bodily activities include breathing, blood circulation, sleep, wakeful state, digestion, excretion, heat energy, electrical flow etc. Every object of the world is active. Non-stop does production, propagation and transformation take place. Living beings and material objects walk on the path of progress in their own way. Every unit of the cosmos is being pushed on the path of evolution. Apara Prakriti is that important center of incitement that induces inactivity to become active. It is this power that controls Sattva (purity), Rajas ( activity), Tamas (inertia) and the 5 elements. Due to its grace one attains Sidhis and boons. It is also called Savitri i.e. the second wife of Brahmaji. Health of one’s body, long life, might, zest, daring, beauty etc. are dependent on it. No doubt it is all pervasive yet its special centers are the polar regions of the earth and Mooladhar Chakra of the human body. In spiritual parlance it is called Kundalini Shakti or Divine Serpent Power.
Gayatri and Savitri complement one another. They never compete with each other like the Ganges and Yamuna river of Himalaya mountains. They can be called 2 streams of God consciousness. In reality both are bound to each other inseparably. They are one vital force with 2 bodies. Even a realized saint needs a body of flesh, blood etc. and means for sustenance. Without divine consciousness material objects cannot be controlled. Thus the world moves with efforts of both put together. If material objects and consciousness separate, none will continue to exist. Both will then merge into its primary cause. Both of them are wheels of the chariot of world progress. One without another is helpless. A handicapped saint and a foolish beastly man are both half-baked. The body consists of 2 arms, 2 legs, 2 eyes, 2 lungs, 2 kidneys etc. God’s body too controls this world with the help of 2 streams of divine energy. These 2 streams can be called 2 wives of God. The word “wife” is merely symbolic. How can the family of divine existence be similar to that of a human being? The element fire has 2 special qualities viz. heat and light. One can call them 2 wives of fire. If one abhors the term “Wives” one can replace it with the term “daughters”. Goddess Saraswati is sometimes called Brahmaji’s wife and at other times his daughter. Never should this relationship be looked upon as gross or material. This symbolic description is merely a comparison for deeper understanding. Soul force is called Gayatri and material force is called Savitri. Savitri worship is nothing but Kundalini awakening. Over here the latent state of the bodily vital force along with its distortions are warded off. Electricity is both positive and negative. Similarly by conjoining Gayatri with Savitri our spiritual endeavour will truly succeed.
The Gayatri worship included in our daily activities (Sandhya-Vandan) is ordinary. For Kundalini or Divine Serpent Power awakening a high leveled mode of worship/ meditation has to be followed. It can be called a chain that ties material nature to divine energy. This vital force stream directs all movements of the individual (micro) and cosmos (macro). Despite a male and female being powerful in their own way, yet they remain unfulfilled. In order to bind both closely, an unknown magnetic force is at work. Due to its pressure couples marry and later sire children. For e.g. this magnetic fire that binds man to a woman can be called a spark of Kundalini Shakti. This cosmic divine force called Kundalini induces a strong bond between inert nature and consciousness and thus the universal movements / activities are monitored. This Divine Serpent Power induces a strong bond between the individual body and consciousness (soul) so as to manifest desires in the body, cravings in the mind and steadfastness in one’s psyche. All activities of a living being manifest as aspirations, deep thinking and action. All these are a creation of Kundalini Shakti. Else how can the inert 5 elements (earth, water, fire, wind, space) vibrate and how can the taintless soul experience agitations? All magic noticed in the movements / activities of the visible world is called “Maya” in spiritual parlance. In the field of spiritual practices it is called Kundalini. It can be called the root sensitive center of cosmic movements and human activities. When this key lands in the hands of a Master (realized saint), all locked doors of material and spiritual progress are thrown wide open.
Within Gayatri worship, in order to augment Ritambhara Prajna (divine intellect) , in order to intensify the tangible existence, one makes use of Kundalini worship. The aim of Gayatri worship is to activate mental consciousness and the goal of Kundalini worship is to augment material activity.
There is no limit to Sidhis of conscious powers that manifest from the brain region. This is utilized by Yogis, realized saints, far-sighted thinkers, scientists, artists, knowers of the soul and other great men so as to radiate their soul force. Who is unaware of the importance of the brain? In order to advance it further one makes use of school education, self-study, association with great saints, deep reflection, deep thinking, spiritual practices and even trance (Samadhi). This particular social arena can be called Gayatri worship or spiritual practices pertaining to Para Prakriti.
The second capacity is power of action. It controls all bodily functions which include breathing, blood circulation, sleep, waking state, excretion, heat, knowledge principle, electrical flow etc. It is the doership of Apara Prakriti. It is also called the power of action which induces movements in inert objects. This too is required in one’s daily life. Good health, long life, might, zest, daring, beauty etc. very much depends on it. In social terms it can be called Kundalini Shakti or Divine Serpent Power. One worships this Shakti via eating, exercising, resting etc.
By itself divine consciousness of the brain region is predominant. The moment it gets scattered, one dies. But one must realize that our bodily material consciousness too is important. If it is weak man too becomes weak, ill, indolent, lackluster, ugly and a coward. He lives the life of a donkey who carries unwanted burden on his shoulders.
The central point of Gayatri is Sahasrar or the Brahmarandhra which is the brain of all brains. The central point of Kundalini is the seed of sexual passion in the Mooladhar Chakra. Both experience oneness and are inseparably bound to one another. Via Gayatri worship one attains divine spiritual glories and Savitri gives us material powers called Ridhi Sidhi. The high leveled spiritual practices of Gayatri worship get converted to spiritual practices of the 5 sheaths. Savitri is Kundalini or Divine Serpent Power and can be activated by 5 types of austerities. When Yoga (union with God) conjoins to austerities, a compact form of soul based spiritual practices is generated. Thus one attains all-round benefits. It is most appropriate that one imbibes that mode of worship wherein the Panchkosha’s (5 sheaths) of Gayatri and Kundalini awakenings based on Savitri science are in tandem. Only when positive and negative electricity combine can there be a stream of electrical energy. The chariot of soul evolution moves towards this great goal with the help of these 2 wheels.
Grossly man’s body seems to be made up of the 5 elements (earth, water, fire, wind, space), blood, urine etc. It seems as though it is nourished only by food, water and air. But if deep studies are undertaken one can see that in it lies the seed of all material and conscious energies of the entire cosmos. Whatever exists in the external gigantic cosmos is present in a micro form within the human body. If these seeds are nourished aptly, one will be wonderstruck to see a gigantic tree emerging from them.
Within us exist all demi-gods, all divine worlds, all realized souls called Sidhas, all Rishis, all pilgrim spots, all divine glories (Sidhis) and whatever that is great albeit in seed form. The only thing required is to give water, manure etc. to this seed. And lo behold! These seeds will later bloom into trees giving divine flowers and fruits of spirituality.
The aim of spiritual practices is to advance our inner greatness. No doubt in the external wide spread world there are many forces yet the all-pervasive task of looking after the cosmos is already determined. A man’s character decides all reactions he faces. The task of attaining success and boons are actually done by the seeds of cosmic forces present within our soul. A part of the sun is present in our eyes. Only if the eyes are healthy can one gain all-round benefits from the sun. Only if our ears are healthy can we benefit from the sun. Only if our ears are healthy can we benefit from sound waves present in space. Similarly, if the divine seeds within our soul are purified, it is easy to build a strong bond with cosmic divinity and by attracting the latter to one’s soul one can attain its grace.
The aim of spiritual practices pertaining to Kundalini awakening is to evolve and purify the divine seeds within our souls. The seeds of Shiva of Kailash mountain and Vishnu sleeping on Shesha serpent in the ocean of milk are very much present in the central point of the brain called Brahmarandhra. This region is also called Sahasrar. The seeds of Mahakali are present in the cave of the genitals called Mooladhar Chakra. When these 2 forces are not united we merely get a superficial glimpse of their presence. When both these forces unite, an amazing stream of divine energy starts flowing.
When monsoons set in, arid lands become lush green. Those seeds which were lifeless in the summer season now start blooming forth. It appears as though a smart gardener has sown seeds of creepers, flowers, fruits etc. Kundalini or Divine Serpent Power activation is very much like the rainy season. The human body is a gigantic fertile piece of land. In it live priceless seeds. Until the monsoon season has not set in these seeds cannot sprout forth. But once it rains all these seeds manifest their prowess. Ordinarily those very divine glories and special qualities which we are blissfully unaware of start manifesting during this downpour.
Knowers of Divine Truth (realized saints) have unearthed an amazing unit of divinity in the 3 layers of the human body viz. gross, subtle and causal bodies. They have discovered innumerable seeds of divine power. They found all those cosmic powers within their individual bodies. Hence they lay stress on carrying out spiritual practices pertaining to their bodies and mind. Although divine powers pervade temples, mosques, churches, divine worlds (Lokas) etc. yet they are relatively more accessible within the human body. It is easier to discover them within than elsewhere. Kundalini based spiritual practices have to be carried out within one’s body and when its success pours down like rain, one experiences innumerous divine powers manifesting. What can be found within our inner body?
Following is the answer
“Within the human body dwell all streams, oceans, mountains, regions, Rishis, Munis, galaxies, planets, pilgrim spots, Peethas, demi-gods etc.”
-SHIVA SAMHITA (2/1/2)
“Jambudveep is present in the bones, Keshavdveep in flesh, Kronchadveep in veins, Shakadveep in blood, Shalmilidveep in skin, Plakshadveep in hair and Pushkar in the navel. Thus all the 7 islands (continents) are present in the human body.”
In the same way the 7 oceans too are found in the human body. Lavan ocean is present in urine, Ksheer ocean in sperms, Dadhi ocean in marrow, Grit ocean in fat, Ikshi ocean in the navel and Sura ocean in the blood.
“The 7 pilgrim spots are present in the human body. Shri Shail is present in the head, Kedar in the forehead, Kashi in between the eyebrows, Kurukshetra in the breasts, Prayag in the heart and Kamalalaya in the Mooladhar (genitals). He who ignores these soul based pilgrim spots and instead wanders in the external worldly pilgrim centers is one who ignores priceless jewels and instead runs after pieces of glass.”
-JAVAL DARSHANOPANISHAD (4/48)
“Within the human body dwell all pilgrim spots and demi-gods. The chief rivers Ganga, Yamunaa, Saraswati, Godavari, Narmada, Sindhu, Kaveri, Chandrabhagaa, Vitasta and Iravati and other 72,000 smaller rivers flow in the human body. Further in the human body dwell the 15 Tithis, 7 days, 27 galaxies, 12 Zodiac Signs, 28 Yogas, 7 Karans, 9 planets and their satellites, families of galaxies and 33 crore demi-gods.”
“Due to the speed of vital force wind, the demi-gods seated in the center of each Chakra awaken and thus Kundalini or Divine Serpent Power reaches the brain.”
-SHIV SAMHITA (4/46)
“Brahman resides in the heart, Vishnu in the throat, Rudra in the palate and Sarveshwar in the forehead.”
All pilgrim spots dwell in the human body. If soul based spiritual practices are executed with the help of Kundalini Science, the human body will manifest all pilgrim spots and thus all benefits pertaining to pilgrimages are attained. The subtle Yogic nerves called Ida, Pingala and Sushumna are compared to the confluence of the rivers Ganga, Yamuna and Saraswati in Prayag and this gives unlimited good merits (Punya).
“Ida is the river Yamuna, Pingala is Saraswati and Sushumna is Ganga. This is the Yogic Triveni or 3-fold confluence. One attains great benefits when the 3 unite.”
“Between Ida i.e. Ganga and Pingala i.e. Yamuna flows Sushumna i.e. Saraswati. One who bathes in its confluence is indeed glorified and attains the Supreme Divine Abode. The confluence of Ida, Pingala and Sushumna is Shiva Teertha or pilgrim spot. He who bathes in its waters of divine wisdom (Brahman) has nothing to do with holy rivers etc. of the external material world.”
“Ida Yogic nerve is called Varana and Pingala is called Asee. Between the 2 dwells Lord Vishwanath himself. It is Varanasi. This Varanasi has been glorified by seer saints, Rishis and scriptures and is said to be the ultimate supreme principle.”
-SHIV SAMHITA (5/123 117)
“Ida subtle nerve that moves in the left direction within the right half of the Ajna Chakra is called Ganga.”
-SHIV SAMHITA (5/132)
The presiding deity of the causal body is Brahma, that of the subtle body is Vishnu and that of the gross body is Shiva. In ordinary living beings these presiding deities lie in a corner as if tied into a knot. But when the 3 flames of Kundalini activation are lit up, it influences the 3 bodies. These 3 latent deities become active and manifest their light and influence. Those 3 bodies which ordinarily are not experienced by us become more powerful than our gross body, when their presiding deities are awakened. When the 3 knots called Brahmagranthi, Vishnugranthi and Rudragranthi are untied one is liberated from all lack and sorrow. Such a spiritual seeker manifests a divine aura.
The 3 legs of Gayatri point towards these 3 knots (Granthis) i.e. the 3 bodies. The combined spiritual practices of Gayatri and Savitri overcomes all layers of dirt on one’s consciousness. Thus the divine consciousness radiates in all directions. In order that soul consciousness influences our material life, one has to take help of Savitri worship. A human body is most required for making the soul the pinnacle of worldly glory. That capacity required to utilize Gayatri (soul) for worldly endeavours is attained via Savitri worship.
There are many scriptures which throw light on the deep import of Kundalini or Divine Serpent Power awakening via Gayatri worship.
“Those demi-gods which give us material comforts, cannot give us salvation or Moksha. Those who give us salvation do not give us material comforts. But Kundalini Shakti gives us both.”
“Just as man opens the chain of a closed door with his own skill, in the same way a Yogi rises up the Sushumna path with the help of Divine Serpent Power practices and after entering Brahmaloka (divine abode), he attains salvation.”
“The soul force Kundalini sleeps like a female serpent in the Mooladhar Chakra in a coil of 3 ½ rounds. As long as Kundalini sleeps, man leads a beastly life. Even after intense efforts he does not attain divine wisdom. When one’s substratum force is sleeping, it is obvious that his material world too is sleeping. But when Kundalini awakens, one’s fate and world too awakens.”
“An awakened Kundalini gives birth to unlimited energy. First Naad or divine sound gets activated and then Bindu(material nature). The 4 types of speeches i.e. Para, Pashyanti, Madhyama and Vaikhari too get activated. One’s power of desire, power of knowledge and power of action too bloom forth and many bodily and mental powers too radiate.”
“It is due to the perseverance of Kundalini Super Power that the world is active. He who realizes this truth cuts asunder all bonds of pain and sorrow.”
“When our Kundalini Shakti awakens our speech becomes sweet. We progress in the fields of art and literature. It shines as a flame or moonlight in the Mooladhar Chakra. It can be imbibed with the help of vital force.”
As a result of Kundalini awakening many cosmic powers, Sidhis and potentialities can be activated. This is a fact because as a result of spiritual practices the inner seed powers of a spiritual seeker are activated and they move upwards. These spiritual practices help one to conjoin the individual soul to God (cosmic soul). To attain this one must give up minor spiritual practices and take up special, high-statured spiritual practices. One must note that each spiritual seeker has specific methods to follow, based on his inner potentials. Hence there is no need of publicizing them and nor is it appropriate to do so.
