Dear D., you say:
"This higher activation of Kundalini is not brought about by simple
breathing exercises or is the result of an individual's desire or
personal will . . . the disciple does not participate in simple
breathing exercises to awaken the purer and higher aspect of the
So, you are postulating that there are different degrees of
Kundalini. I have a similar explanation, although without introducing
different degrees of kundalini itself.
As we know, kundalini is one of the manifestations of Fohat, and so
is Buddhi in its active state, when galvanized by Manas. Therefore,
to my mind kundalini is a lower aspect of active Buddhi. You can
awaken the lower aspect of any energy of state, without necessarily
reaching the higher state. But developing the higher state (Buddhi,
in this case), you can awaken also the lower one. That is why HPB
says that occultism (or Raja Yoga) works from the higher to the
lower, and not the other way around (as in the case of Hatha yoga).
I don't know if anyone else has an alternative explanation.
