Awakening of Kundalini energy marks the onset of the spiritual awakening process.

Kundalini is what unfolds ones capability to experience expanded states of consciousness, clear psychological & physiological blockages. It unleashes evolutionary mechanism and accelerates all biological processes, enabling higher brain function.

This process leads to Enlightenment and Self-Realization, establishing the being in non dual bliss awareness, Truth.

Siddha Yoga

The unique perspective of Siddha Maha Yoga is that since Kundalini is an intelligent force it will, upon awakening, naturally & effortlessly direct the practice of the seeker. All that is required is that the initiate completely surrender to this force. As a result of kundalini’s unfoldment spontaneous purifying movements, called kriyas will occur.

In addition, the practices of Hatha, Laya and Jnana Yoga will naturally manifest in a spontaneous fashion according to what is most suited for the seeker. It is propitiated from within by the workings of the energy.

Since all other yogas naturally manifest as a result of Kundalini awakening this yoga is called Mahayoga meaning great yoga. Since the Kundalini awakening is induced by a perfected being or Siddha this yoga is called Siddha Mahayoga. Since all other yogas and their results occur spontaneously Sahaja and without effort this yoga is also called Sahaja Yoga.

Deeksha Initiation

Awakening of Kundalini through Shaktipat Deeksha Initiation is at the heart of Siddha Yoga. It is an ancient Vedic, as well as Tantric, science which entails transfer or flow of energy to set ablaze, as well as give direction to, Kundalini.

A being with an Awakened Kundalini who has completed the path of the energy, an enlightened Siddha Yogi, acts as a channel for the transmission of this cosmic spiritual energy into the aspirant, initiating their own inherent flow of Kundalini.


Shaktipat is a holistic system for awakening and guiding the Kundalini energy to rise.

The attunement sets a chain reaction in flowering of consciousness.

It clears blocks which limit our emotional, mental and energetic perception.

This dissolves conditioning of the bodymind through spontaneous inner Yoga, leading to Enlightenment and Self-Realization.

Mechanism of Transmission

The phenomenon works on basis of sympathetic resonance between oscillating systems. The systems in this case being localised points of consciousness within the unified quantum field of awareness, which is all pervading, omnipotent and beyond linear time.

The point of realised potential of the initiator connects and conducts its enhanced vibrational state to the aspirant which gets attuned to it. The evolved potential of the adept conveys its focused & charged conscious life force (prana) to that of the seeker, which is scattered and diluted.

The combined interference of vibrations activate the inherent infinite charge of the seeker, making it more focused and concentrated, pushing it beyond the threshold, underneath which Kundalini potential lies dormant.

While more pronounced when beings are in each others presence, it can be transferred through touch, through objects, telepathically through will/intention over any distance no matter how remote, through sound and mantra, through breath and through charging the space in which the receiver is located.

The intensity of energy primarily depends upon the level of development of the receiver. The karma of the receiver is the deciding factor as well as their ability to surrender, for the initiator it is the establishment in the enlightened state that regulates the intensity of transmission.


There are many spiritual practices that are generally recommended, including maintaining subjective non dual awareness, meditation, chanting, Satsang and living the teachings.

Often one gets attached to these practices, and they become the limitations instead of tools for realisation of Self. To attain liberation, all practice has to be let go eventually.

These activities that you can perform always involve a sense of doership which is the cause of accumulation of karmic impressions in the mindbody field.

In the presence of a Siddha master though, all such practices involving mechanical effort and voluntary doership are rendered useless.

As the Siddha injects a current of Divine Power (Shaktipat) into the subtle body of the aspirant, igniting and releasing their inner prana (life force). This prana then works freely, generating the various yogic processes – asanas, mudras, pranayamas.

Kundalini is harnessed in a more direct way and the need to perform alot of redundant practices is overcome.

There is no conscious effort or sense of doership involved in these spontaneous yogic processes. One watches as a witness as the intelligent life force directs its own path.

The workings of the Kundalini Energy thin the Self-limiting Karmic impressions and conditioning stored in the mindbody by converting them into Kriyas (involuntary movements). With this, the binding tendencies that limit one’s consciousness are lifted.

Whatever path one may follow, it is inevitably through the release of prana that one enters deep meditation and ultimately, Union with God, Samadhi.


The intensity of Shaktipat depends upon your quality and depth of surrender. The more you are open to receive, and the more willing you are to let go, the stronger the transmission will be.

In a session, surrender and completely let go. Be as less involved as possible and allow the flow of the energy transmission to take over.

If it is difficult to directly surrender, you can either focus on your own preferred deity, the unmanifest void/nothingness, the still background of your perception, a mantra or music that help the mind to relax and let go.
