In In Search of the Miraculous, Vol 2 (1984 / 1992) #1: the chapter title is: "Outer help in the growth of kundalini ernergy"
- Question 1
- You said at the Nargol meditation camp that the meaning of shaktipat -- transmission of the divine energy -- is that the energy of the divine descends into the meditator. Later on you said that there is a difference between shaktipat and grace. These two statements seem contradictory. Please explain.
- Question 2
- In the nargol meditation camp you have said that either the energy rises from within and reaches up to the divine or the energy of the divine descends and merges within. You said that the first is rising of the kundalini and the second is the grace of the divine. Then later on you have said that when the sleeping energy within meets the enormous energy of the infinite, an explosion takes place which is samadhi. Is the union of the awakened kundalini and grace absolutely necessary for samadhi? Or, is the evolution of the kundalini up to the sahasrar similar to the happening of divine grace?
- Question 3
- Does the kundalini unfold toward the sahasrar only by shaktipat? Does the explosion take place only then?
- If this is so, then does it mean that samadhi can be obtained through somebody else?
- Question 4
- Once you mentioned that shaktipat proved to be harmful to Vivekananda.
- Question 5
- Vivekananda had an experience of samadhi through contact with Ramakrishna. Was it an authentic experience?
- Question 6
- Can there be a partial experience of samadhi?
- Question 7
- Could we say that Ramakrishna exploited Vivekananda?
- Question 8
- Could it be that Ramakrishna knew that Vivekananda had to go through a very hard time in his spiritual endeavor with failures and pains, and so, out of compassion, he gave him a glimpse to keep up his hopes?
