Happiness is our nature. It is not wrong to desire it. What is wrong is seeking it outside when it is inside - Ramana Maharshi
Is Kundalini a Snake, Liquid Fire or Light? What is Kundalini?
Kundalini Real Form: Topics
Kundalini is a Sanskrit word which literally means coiled. When we say coiled it brings an image of snake or serpent to our mind. Kundalini is also described as liquid fire and liquid light. Some call it as energy.
Why is kundalini called “snake” or “serpent” or “liquid fire” or “liquid light” or “energy”?
Kundalini serpent coiled 3 and half times
Kundalini is said to be serpent coiled 3 and half times at the base of Muladhara chakra
Kundalini, after awakening, travels upwards through Sushumna nadi towards sahasrahar chakra (The Bindu or The Bliss). Sushumna nadi is a hollow tube running from muladhara chakra to sahasrahar chakra. Inside physicals spinal cord is a hollow canal that runs all along the length called canalis centralis. Sushumna nadi is located within this hollow canal. This tubular nadi of sushumna is the path of kundalini travel after her awakening.
Kundalini begines upwards journey after awakening Liquid Fire Liquid Light
Is She Serpent? Is She Liquid Fire? Is She Liquid Light?
What can travel through a tubular nadi - up and down and also spread through holes (valves) of chakras? It can only be snake or fire or light or energy. Anything that can take variable flexible form can travel through a tubular pipe. Therefore, kundalini is described as snake or serpent or liquid fire or liquid light or energy. These are the only concepts human mind can perceive because human mind has “experienced” or “seen” these concepts (like liquid fire or liquid light or energy) or things (like snake or serpent). Therefore, all these descriptions of kundalini are “created” by human mind because of limitation of human mind and the way it can (or cannot) perceive kundalini’s journey upwards through sushumna nadi.

Reality: Kundalini is absolutely beyond perception of human mind
In reality, none of these descriptions are accurate. Kundalini is absolutely beyond perception of human mind. It is the human mind that can comprehend with the help of kundalini, how can human mind comprehend kundalini? How can an eye see itself when the function of eye is to see the world outside? It is just not possible.

Therefore, in simple terms, it is not possible for human mind to perceive the real form of kundalini shakti. Human life is limited with five senses and therefore it cannot do anything beyond imagine what it cannot “see” or “experience”. Sometimes these human beings (so called “intelligent” among us) also take help of science to perceive the God and prove or disprove the God. They create many versions of the God (Bliss) and continue to fight with each other over the “concept” of God as per their religion. Neither science not religion has ever found the God. No one can find God without help of God. Taking help of divine mother (siddha yoga) is one of the simplest and shorted routes to “experience” God or attain God. Taking help of other yogas is still longer route to the God.

Kundalini – The Divine Mother
Kundalini Shakti (where the Trinity – Brahma, Vishnu and Maheshwar merge)
Kundalini Shakti (where the Trinity – Brahma, Vishnu and Maheshwar merge)
There are many descriptions of the kundalini but the one suites her best is “Divine Mother”. She is Divine Mother like Kamadhenu or Kalpavriksha that fulfills all wishes and desires of the seeker. (In Hindu mythology, Kamadhenu is divine cow who is believed to be the mother of all cows who could grant all wishes of the true seeker and Kalpavriksha is a mythological, wish-fulfilling divine tree.)

Why Kundalini is Divine Mother?
Kundalini is “Divine” because she is “Absolute Pure”.

Kundalini is “Mother” because she has “Selfless Love that is Infinite”.

In case of human mother her “selfless love” is limited by “impurity” of karma bondage that binds human mother into maya or illusion.

This “Selfless Love” of human mother attains “Infinite” and “Absolute Pure” form at the feet of the universal divine mother. Hence Kundalini is considered as “Absolute Pure Selfless Love that is Infinite”.

Kundalini is neither snake nor serpent, nor liquid fire nor liquid light. She is “Absolute Pure Selfless Boundless Love that is Infinite” and hence she is “The Divine Mother”. She is formless “intelligent” cosmic energy.

Embrace Siddha yoga, embrace the mother, she is waiting for you…so many lives you forgot about her. Open your eyes and she will take you in her lap.

We are babies of that divine mother bound by maya bandhan
Kundalini is nothing but Universal Divine Mother who has “pure selfless infinite love” towards you and me (babies.) We are the babies that can not even see their mother because they are tightly bound by rope of maya (illusion) to a mountain of “karma bandhan” (bondage of karma.) Almost 100% of these babies can’t relieve themselves from the bondage of maya and karma and hence continue to take birth after birth and keep dying endless deaths. Every time they are born they feel this is the “real life”. They fail to realize they are just doing a new role in next life in the endless chain of lives. Anytime they get miseries and pains they continue to blame the God and when they get fortune they take the credit to themselves. Thus, they continue to accumulate more karma bandhan in each life and keep going away from the Divine Mother….and thus the chain of miserable lives continue.

Only few awaken from the deep sleep, She helps them attain the Mukti
But there are few (very few that awaken from this deep slumber) and start walking towards the divine mother. They fall many times, they forget her many times, but she does not leave their hand. Slowly but surely they continue to walk towards the mother with their feeble feet (feeble spiritual practice).

One day (after several lives) they realize they are not walking towards her but they are with her. Then they come to know she is with them holding their hand. This point on she gives strength in their feeble feet (spiritual practice grows). This point onwards they start running with her, away from material life, and she continues to show them the beautiful road to the divine – “Absolute Pure”.
Divine Mother will take us in her lap
Divine Mother will take us in her lap
Sometime in this travel she takes them in her lap and never puts them down. Then arrives the day when the “Self-Realization” happens. This is where Brahma, Vishnu and Maheshwar merge into one. This is where the Mukti is. This is where the Bliss is. This is where my mother lives - The ultimate abode of Bliss. This is called “Self-Realization”.
