Krishna, Gopi - kundalini - some background
Type of Spiritual Experience
Gopi found that the kundalini energy he experienced was unrelated to the chakras …..
Incidentally he assumed this meant there were no chakras, but I don't think we can make this assumption from one small set of observations
A description of the experience
Gopi Krishna – Kundalini the evolutionary energy in man
I did not come across any [chakras] in the course of my own long adventure, not even a vestige of one in any part of the cerebro spinal system.
To assume their existence even for an instant in these days of physiological knowledge and research would mean nothing short of an insult to intelligence.
In all probability their existence was suggested graphically to the disciples with colourful detail as an aid to concentration and to signify the location of the more sensitive and easier to effect brain and nerve centres, as well as to symbolise chastity; the lotus flower, unaffected by the condition of water in which it grows, has always served as an emblem of purity.
