…..the chaitanya Shakti (vibratory power), which creates the whole universe, sustains it and organizes it. It flows through living creatures and passes through them. Because of a particular reason in a human being and because concerning of his particular way of life, there occur some developments by which he gets disconnected with that power. In simple words you can understand that the ego which human beings have, animals don’t have. The condition of brain of human beings is one of different kind. His brain is triangular. When a foetus is of 3 months in his mother’s womb, at that time, this power enters through this triangular brain and then it is divided into three parts because of the retraction involved in this process. One part has gone down directly through the middle of forehead and remaining two parts go down through the two angles of the brain and take a turn and go down.
It is because of these three type of powers only a man is different from an animal. This power which passes in the brain through triangle and it passes through one angle of triangle, then it also develops another angle. And because of that particular angle its powers changes in two forms. If you people are from physics then you will understand that power always passes in a straight way. But when it comes to this side passing through like this then it has to go like that, so its changing form divides it in two powers which are called as components. One goes outside like this and other goes down like that. It is only because of the force that goes outside; man is compelled to get a feeling of going outside…..
Therefore it is just a reaction produced by a force which originates one from front and other from back within us and two institutions, named as ego and super ego are formed and gathered here. Due to assembling of these, we are separated from everywhere/ completely. ….Out of this power, the power which go through middle , goes down and is settled in three and half circle in coils in the triangular bone in our backbone after getting twisted. That’s why it is called as Kundalini*. …
