Kundalini Definition Poster

Sat Nam!  I created this blog to share the resources that I create for my Yoga students and friends.  Here is the first thing that I have made. 

I started reading this fantastic book Kundalini: Divine Energy, Divine Life by Cyndi Dale about a month ago.

I have been practicing Kundalini Yoga for eight years.  Yet I never really quite understood exactly what Kundalini was until after reading this book.

Here is how Cyndi breaks down the word Kundalini into it's sanskrit roots:

kundalin= coiled, spiraled (from the work kundalam, which means "ring" or "coil")

kun= earth

di= can mean "little pot of earth" or "a single cell" and its alternative root:

da= to give or "the bestower"

lini= perpetual consciousness expressing in alpha and omega, or beginning and end  

Cyndi gives this great definition of the Kundalini Energy...
