In In Search of the Miraculous, Vol 1 (1984 / 1992) #12: the chapter title is: "Kundalini Will Transform You"
- Question 1
- You said yesterday that our kundas or pools of energy are not separate and different from each other; they are really one cosmic kunda. But so far as a seeker is concerned his energy will rise from his own kunda and not from others. So is the kunda really one? Please explain.
- Question 2
- You say that all the so-called individual wells are one and they are already joined with the ocean which is emptiness. If so, what need is there to go through any sadhana or spiritual discipline in order to be one with the emptiness or the void?
- Question 3
- You said that the ratio of oxygen and carbon dioxide changes through deep breathing. Will you please explain how this matter is connected with the awakening of the kundalini?
- Question 4
- Many yogis make use of mountain caves which utterly lack oxygen. How do the caves help in attaining samadhi or unity with the absolute?
- Question 5
- When we enter deep meditation, the body becomes inert and the breathing thin, which is likely to cause lack of oxygen in the body. Please explain this phenomenon in the context of meditation and samadhi -- i.e. ecstasy.
- Question 6
- What is the state of breathing in what we call sahaj samadhi or natural ecstasy?
- Question 7
- How does the Buddhist technique of anapansati -- constantly watching one's breath -- affect the state of oxygen in our bodies?
- Question 8
- It is likely that through deep and in tense breathing an excess of oxygen enters the lungs of the seeker causing him great harm. What do you say?
- Question 9
- Along with oxygen we take in other gases like nitrogen and hydrogen with our breath. How are all these gases conducive to meditation?
- Question 10
- How is it that the body begins to feel light after deep and fast breathing?
- Question 11
- At times in the course of meditation it seems that something within has snapped, and this experience is frightening.
- Question 12
- Should not one get frightened?
- Question 13
- It creates a lot of heat as well.
- Question 14
- Will it be necessary to make efforts to breathe deeply and ask "who am I?" even after shaktipat or transmission of energy has happened, or will they happen naturally and on their own?
- Question 15
- Under the impact of shaktipat or transmission of energy, deep breathing happens on its own. But at times the body relaxes and breathing slackens. Should one continue to make efforts during such intervals?
- Question 16
- What if the blood vessels are damaged because of too much strain?
- Question 17
- After all, we don't want to die in a state of ignorance.
- Question 18
- In fact, we have only a little; how can we afford to lose it?
