I'm not a specialist in this subject. I'll share my understanding on
it. There are seven universal forces or shaktis, of which kundalini
is one of them. It can be awakened stimulating the root chakra
through sexual practices, performing breathing exercises in certain
asanas or through meditation. In hatha yogic and tantric literature
they say the awakening of kundalini is the highest goal. But it is
not belief in Occultism or Raja Yoga.
According to HPB there are seven tattvas related to seven kinds of
forces and centres in the body. She says that the hatha yogi works on
the four lower, trying to go up to the higher, while the Raja Yogi
does the opposite: first work on the higher and then goes to the
lower. As I understand it, HPB said that you cannot really go from
the lower energies to the highest, because the means to awaken the
lower will damage the pineal gland, the organ of spiritual
perception, and could even severe the connection between higher self
and the personality, for that incarnation.
But beyond all that, there is a question of common sense, to me:
evolution of soul is meant for its spiritual awakening, which
involves a growing wisdom, a sense of non-separateness, a widening
and deepening of perception and discrimination between the real and
the unreal, and so on. Then, what has sexual or breathing exercises
to do with the spiritual awakening? To me, it would be a universal
joke if after all, the soul could be liberated in such an artificial
way. Why didn't the Buddha, the Christ, Shankaracharya, etc., etc.
teach those relatively easy techniques, instead of losing their time
teaching all that stuff of morality and meditation?
It is said that once the Raja Yogi has reached certain spiritual
development, he will awakened kundalini through meditation
I hope it may help.
