Kundalini Awakening in Yoga Meditation
From: http://www.swamij.com/kundalini-awakening.htm r
Prana flows in Ida and Pingala, the left and right energies. Prana is trained to flow in Sushumna, the central channel of subtle energy. Kundalini awakens at the first chakra, and rises to Sahasrara, the crown. The Self, the Atman or Brahman is realized; the union of Shiva and Shakti, the Absolute, one without a second.
