Krishna, Gopi - the kundalini experience No 4
Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
Gopi Krishna – Kundalini the evolutionary energy in man
Before losing myself entirely in the contemplation of an unbounded, glowing conscious void, I distinctly felt an incomparably blissful sensation in all my nerves moving from the tips of my fingers and toes and other parts of the trunk and limbs towards the spine, where, concentrated and intensified, it mounted upwards with a still more exquisitely pleasant feeling to pour into the upper region of the brain a rapturous and exhilarating stream of a rare radiating nerve secretion.
In the absence of a more suitable appellation, I call it nectar, a name given to it by the ancient savants. All authorities on Kundalini yoga are agreed about the reality of the ambrosial current, which irrigates the seventh centre in the brain at the moment of the union of Shakti with Shiva, the super-conscious principle behind the embodied self, and it is said that the flow of the nectar into it or into one of the lower centres on the spinal axis is always accompanied by a most exquisite rapture impossible to describe, exceeding many times in intensity that most pleasurable of bodily sensations, the orgasm, which marks the climax of sexual union.
