notes
About bookchapters 8 and 9: in Dynamics of Meditation (1973) these are two chapters, which have the exact same header: "Text of an interview with Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh by Ma Yoga Maitri of Tokyo, Neo-Sannyas International President for Japan, On November 10, 1970, Bombay, India."
Ch.8 is titled: "Enlightenment and the Symbols of Kundalini Yoga", it has 14 questions.
Ch.9 is titled: "Polarities of Life Force in the Seven Bodies", it has only one question with a long answer. From the subject of the question and the answer, it seems a continuation of ch.8.
See Talk:Dynamics of Meditation#Ch. 8 and 9 one event?. Therefore, these two chapters have been classified as one event.
synopsis
Reader of the questions: unknown.
Question 1
Bhagwan, what happens after kundalini reaches "sahasrar" (the highest psychic center, symbolized as a flower of a thousand petals), and there is enlightenment?
Question 2
So it is the beginning of enlightenment?
Question 3
Do those who reach enlightenment by other paths than kundalini also reach through the "sahasrar" center? If so, then in what terms do they express it?
Question 4
It is symbolic then?
Question 5
Is the feeling of kundalini like a flowering or a serpent movement?
Question 6
It is psychic?
Question 7
Isn't the snake symbol possible if one only has seen a picture of a snake?
Question 8
How does one feel after the sahasrar, the highest chakra, (psychic center), begins to open?
Question 9
What are these different "madras" (outer expressions of inner psychic transformations) and religious visions that come in deep meditation when the sahasrar opens? What happens to these various symbols?
Question 10
Does transcendence come with the opening of sahasrar?
Question 11
What exactly is "prana"?
Question 12
Is it a kind of energy?
Question 13

Question 14
Is the breath itself prana?
Question 15 (published in the next chapter, ch.9, of Dynamics of Meditation)
Bhagwan, you have said that "prana", vital energy, manifests in polarities in the seven bodies — in the inbreath and the outbreath, in love and hate, etc. Would you please explain more about these polarities?
