Kundalini has an active as well as a passive manifestation depending on the level of development of the student undergoing its experience. For the chela in training it is mainly passive or latent for the advanced Arhart it is fully active. When a student is in training and under the watchful eye of the Master breathing exercises can at some point become a natural part of spiritual training. HPB often warns the student about premature activation of the kundalini which can be the result of "forced breathing exercises" Without the guidance of the Master. Kundalini in its more active state is not something that most Theosophiical student should concern him or herself with but will unfold according to natural law when the time is right and the student has done the preliminary work of service, study and most importantly opening of the Heart. When you are ready and have fufilled all of the requirements for this advanced trainning you can be assured the Master or one of his
senior representatives will contact you.
In Gnostic Christianity it is taught that no man goes to the Father-Will but by way of the Sun-son Christos or love principal. This truth can be seen in some schools of Buddhism as the unfolding of Atma or Will through Buddhi, Higher mind and Love. If spiritual love is dominate in the life of the advancing student Kundalini in its active and most powerful form will spring into activity and rise along the etheric spine central channel bringing liberation through the higher head centers and Crown or thousand petal lotus. If there is not sufficient love developed within the students life the infamous kundalini is deflected downward and brings disaster and ruin to the unfortunate student. Only Love-Buddhi and a purification of the body, emotions and mind can insulate the student from the negative side of this this awesome power. The path of discipleship is strewn with many skulls of those attempting to speed up or thwart this natural evolution or law. It is therefore
advised to avoid any sexual practices that promise quick and easy gains spiritually as well as participating in any forced breathing exercises that do not come under the stewardship and guidance of a qualified teacher.

In a note in the book The Voice of the Silence (Fragment 1, v. 38), HPB
"The 'Power' and the 'World-Mother' are names given to Kundalini -- one
of the mystic 'Yogi powers.' It is Buddhi considered as an active
instead of a passive principle".
I cannot understand that correlation. HPB seems here to imply that the
awakening of Kundalini is the result of Buddhi acting as an active
principle. Since Kundalini may be awakened through breathing exercises,
the manipulation of sexual energy and so on, does it imply that the
spiritual intuition (Buddhi) may be awakened through those "external"
