Kundalini and Sexuality – Is Sexuality a Part of Spiritual Journey?

This is a very interesting topic for discussion. Since ages “SEX” has always been  considered as a  “TABOO”. Even though this is one of the most integral part of human existence, yet our elders and society as a whole, shy away from speaking openly about this phase of our life. The ironical part is that  “Everybody is running behind sex but nobody wants to talk about it”. I fail to understand why everyone treats this divine energy as a Taboo. This energy is so divine and powerful, that with its explosion, a soul manifests into the physical realm. So, if it has the power to create such a beautiful life, then how can it be a Taboo?

“Brahmnaad – Sound of the Universe”

The essence of the universe is energy, frequency and vibrations. The Vedas  state that the making of the infinite Spirit (Shiva) was through a reverberating sound energy of the consciousness called the Naad. This sound was “unstruck”,  which means that it was produced without any two things striking against one  another,  that is,  without friction.

Vast sound waves expanded through the primitive cosmos, and the tremors which arose then, can still be felt today. Naad or cosmic sound has also been described in the Bible, wherein, according to St. John, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God”. Buddhism has its own version of  ‘Naad’ as ‘a flaming sound’ and  in Islam it is ‘a Kalma’. In order to understand the importance of Naad, the best way is to look closely at ourselves.  As we breathe, the vital wind called…

ShaivismThe veneration of Lord Shiva is called Shaivism; Shiva means auspicious, gracious, kind and friendly, more generally, the auspicious one. He is worshipped across Hinduism that originated in India, Nepal and Sri Lanka. Shaivism, like all other traditions has different schools of thought that have their own interpretations, explanations, theories and Philosophies; they also have very large volumes of texts emanating from all the schools and their traditional perspectives. The prominent source of recognition of a follower of Shaivism is the sacred Ash or Vibhooti that is smeared on their forehead.

The sight of a Naaga sadhu, locally referred to as Naaga babas, evokes all kinds of reactions from us ordinary mortals particularly the young amongst us.  In India, these sadhus are frequently seen at popular religious place and events. A common place to see these hermits is the Kumbh Mela where they dominate the proceedings by their massive presence. The largest of the akharas come here in droves for the pilgrimage; you can see hundreds or thousands of these sanyasis.
History and traditionsThe Naagas are supposed to have been organized by Madhusudan Saraswati who was advised by Akbar the Mughal Emperor for the purpose of the Hindu monks who were not very militant and aooften failed to protect themselves from the onslaught of the Muslim leaders and their hardcore clerics.
Madhusudan Saraswati was a contemporary of Akbar the great and practiced the Shankaracharya’s teachings.
