Kundalini, the symbol of the serpent power, is used in many religions in so many different names. But what is behind this word? How will one discover this energy through meditation and breathing?
"If you have seen a serpent standing on his tail, you will be surprised because a serpent has no bones. Standing on his tail is a miracle, because there are no bones, so how is he supporting himself? Ordinarily, the serpent is always sitting or resting, with his body in the form of a circle. That is the meaning of Kundalini. Kundalini means circular and concentric circles. That is the ordinary situation of everybody’s inner energy, it is in a circular way sleeping or resting," according to Osho.
"Kundalini means the serpent lying there fast asleep; it has to be awakened through meditation. Once it wakes up, it starts rising upwards. When it reaches to the ultimate center of your being - Sahasrar - the last center, the last rung of the ladder, you have arrived home."
