Happiness is our nature. It is not wrong to desire it. What is wrong is seeking it outside when it is inside - Ramana Maharshi

 Kundalini Yoga – Introduction
What is Kundalini?
The Cosmic Shakti: Reflection of The Divine in Human
The infinite energy force that keeps the whole Universe in order is the Cosmic energy and the reflection of this Cosmic energy within each individual is called the Kundalini.

Kundalini lies dormant at the base of the spine and can be awakened. Once awakened the Kundalini unleashes unlimited creative potential that exists within every human being.

Kundalini Yoga
Kundalini Yoga is a system of meditative techniques within the ancient Indian yogic tradition that focuses on awakening of the Kundalini leading to psycho-spiritual growth and the body's potential for maturation, leading sadhak (spiritual practitioner) to self-realization (liberation from the cycle of birth and death) that eventually leads to the ultimate union with the Divine.

Kundalini Yoga is considered as the King of all the Yogas because it is the most powerful and the most simple yoga known to the human being.

Kundalini yoga is also called as the yoga of awareness because it directly affects ones consciousness, develops intuition and increases self knowledge. Practitioners of Kundalini yoga benefit greatly from an elevation in consciousness, promotion of physical well-being and an expansion of awareness. Life is transformed into one which is happy, healthy & harmonious...eventually leading to Self-Realization.

Kundalini (Siddha) Yoga: NOT a Magic Pill - Don't Expect Quick Results
Once Kundalini is initiated:

1) Sadhak can start experiencing the "Kriyas" (Pranik movements or divine experiences) from day one.

2) It needs years of consistent practice to start receiving the benefits mentioned above.

3) Siddha yoga is for those who carry ability to do efforts in the long term. It takes Consistent, Conscious and Sincere efforts of few lives before one attains The Salvation (or The God, The Divine or The Chaitanya)

Let us use analogy here:
It takes efforts of 20 years before an individual attains a university degree - "piece of paper". (Even after 20 years of efforts most of the people do not attain basic common sense to sustain a happy, peaceful and successful life.) Should we expect realization of God by efforts of few years or decades?

God is Omnipotent, Omnipresent and Omnipresent encompassing the entire Universe. Those who realize the God attain the Divine knowledge and wisdom with the ability of creation (Chaitanya or Siddhis or Miracles). No one should expect realization of "Self" by efforts of few years or decades.

Do not follow path of Siddha yoga (or Kundalini yoga or Raja yoga or ANY yoga for that matter) if your timeline is of few months or years. It is not for you!

Siddha Gurus (those who have attained the self-realization) have gone through these 4 stages with consistent efforts (unimaginable for any ordinary human being) over several lives.

What is God?
GOD is a state of Eternal Bliss – Chaitanya or Supreme Consciousness

God is a formless, quality-less (Nirakar, Nirgun) “State of Being” – “A Blissful Being that is Eternal as well as Intelligent”. The state being an “Intelligent” one, it can also take a form with qualities (Avatars).

Therefore, the God can be with a form and qualities (Sagun and Sakar) at the same time God is formless and quality-less (Nirgun and Nirakar). This is the reason why some people recognize “Self” (Nirgun, Nirakar) as God while others get the “Darshan” of the God that is Sagun and Sakar.

Thus the God is Sagun/Sakar and Nirgun/Nirakar at the same time. This is the reason why God is Omnipotent, Omnipresent and Omnipresent. In fact because God is Omnipotent, Omnipresent and Omnipresent he can be Sagun/Sakar and Nirgun/Nirakar at the same time.

God a bliss or ceaseless joy NOT connected with body or mind – Which you do not want to go away from. This is the point of attainment at which the Yogi has fully realized that the life that we ("We" - the average human beings) live day to day is nothing more than sufferings & miseries and therefore, he chooses to stay in the abode of the God for ever, never to come back. 
This is The God the Yogis want to attain

This is The Absolute
This is The Divine Awareness
This is The Nirvana
This is The Mukti
This is The Moksha
This is The Salvation
This is The Bliss
This is The Sat-Chit-Ananda
This is The Chaitanya
This is The Supreme Awareness
This is The Divine
This is The Brahman
This is The Supreme Consciousness
This is The Super-Soul
This is The Self
This is The Sakshatkar
This is The Parameshwar
This is The Brahma-Gyan
This is The Realization of The Infinite

The highest ideal for every Sadhak - Lord Sri Krishna (Bhagavad Gita)
Lord Sri Krishna - Bhagavad Gita: Chapter 3, Verse 19

The highest ideal for every Sadhak is 'Siddha-Avasthaa' i.e. state of perfection or `Moksha' i.e. release from the cycle of multiple births and deaths. As a result of the knowledge of the Self, a Yogi has nothing left in balance, which is yet to be acquired for anyone including himself. It is all the same to him whether he performs an action or does not perform it. If such a Yogi has nothing to do gain or lose from others then as per the modern principle of 'the path of the least action', his logical choice must be inaction and not action; as he has nothing to achieve for himself as well as for others.....In the rhythm of incessantly beating of heart, a Sadhak carries out various mundane worldly activities without even noticing every single beat of his heart. Absence of attachment leads to pacification of mind; thus work and rest go on as if reflex actions. Mind made calm in this way becomes capable of grasping the Self. Calmness of mind is the essential pre-requisite for the knowledge of the Self.
Sri Krishna telling bhagavad gita karma yoga bhakti yoga to arujuna on the battlefield
Attainment of the God is about conscious efforts to attain selfless karma without attachment - Bhagavad Gita.
All this is easy to read, but in reality, Karma Yoga given by Lord Sri Krishna to Arjuna is a process of several lives - It is the Conscious efforts with help of Gyan yoga, Bhakti yoga, Raja yoga and all other yogas that ultimately lead to self-realization after several lives.

Yoga is an exact science. It aims at the harmonious development of body, mind and soul. Everyone should follow one Yoga as their primary Yoga (based on their character). Then we must combine Karma Yoga, Hatha Yoga, Raja Yoga, Bhakti Yoga and Gyan Yoga. This “Yoga Synthesis” will lead one to the God.
