A description of the experience
Gopi Krishna - Kundalini the Evolutionary energy in man
They found that on acquiring a certain degree of proficiency in mind control and concentration, they could, in favourable cases, draw up through the hollow backbone a vividly bright, fast moving, powerful radiance into the brain for short periods of time in the beginning, extending the duration with practise, which had a most amazing effect on the mind, enabling it to soar to regions of surpassing glory, beyond anything experience in the crude material world.
They named the channel Sushumna, and as the streaming radiance was distinctly felt mounting up from its base, they treated the spot as the seat of the goddess, representing her as lying asleep there in the guise of a serpent, closing with her mouth the aperture leading to the spinal canal.
The system of nerves on the left and right of the Sushumna, which contributed to the formation of the flaming radiance by yielding a part of the vital energy moving through them, were named Ida and Pingala.
