Kundalini yoga or the yoga of awareness helps humans in speaking the truth, being compassionate towards others, following principles and values and helping others heal. The Serpent Power: 1 by John George Woodroffe focusses on how Kundalini yoga originated and what constitutes its beliefs and theories. The idealistic and mythological aspects of this yoga, along with its abstruse framework are explained and discussed in this book.
Kunda meaning a bowl; kundali meaning a curved rope or ring ties with the concept of a snake or serpent that is coiled. The core of our saintly energy is located around the base of our spine. Through the seven chakras or steps of yoga, we are able to channel this energy into performing something good and beneficial. Kundalini yoga enhances loyalty, influence and rational power. Humans can realise the full extent of their creativity through this type of yoga.
