……….When the Kundalini rises* in the Void it goes through this central-most channel called as brahmanadi. Is the central-most among the three nadis, channels, in the central channel. The central channel is Sushumna and concentrically there are three channels placed and the inner-most is brahmanadi. The other two are called as Chitra and Charini. Now the first one, it just goes like a single thread of hair and pierces through the fontanel bone area. Now one may say that, “Why not…” You see we can blame God for this that, “Why not He had only one channel so that we could feel the impact of Realisation very fast?” But one has to understand that whatever God does is for our well-being and for our hita and for our understanding.
If you go the other way round you see, that when we start hurting our central path of Sushumna we start from outside. Like, you see if you go to a wrong guru, to a cult or to a wrong thing where you bend your head or you have faith in something that is artificial then the first channel is broken, is hurt. Now supposing if the whole of the Sushumna channel was made of only one tube-like channel, then the whole thing would have been finished. So, the first one, the outer-most is first attacked by our stupidity that we do – is to bow to someone who is a fake person. Or we go to things, we believe in things who is fake. It is also harmed in the people who are very arrogant and think no end of themselves and they think that, “We are the lord of the whole world.” That, “We can teach everyone, and everybody else has just to learn from us!” That, “We are the best sect or the best organisation or maybe the best religion or ‘the chosen ones’.” Also there, first layer of the Charini is hurt. So, at the very gross level it is first hit by these two types of people. Now, the second one also can be hurt by people who practice all kinds of nonsensical things. Like I have met many Sahaja Yogis who have been to all kinds of nonsensical things and have practiced very perverted type of practices, very perverted, and all kinds of perverted ideas. ….
These kind of perversions when we have in life, or all kinds of perverted things we are doing these days in modern times, all sorts of improper things, touches the second nadi which is the Chitra. I mean, I can’t even imagine! I don’t know so many things what human beings do, to what extent. But these are the buffer nadis outside. And that’s why there’s the very subtle one which is called as the brahmanadi is used by Kundalini. But first, to begin with, when She rises, She tests you and finds out what sort of an ascent She’s going to have. So, only a thread will rise first of all. Because supposing if there is a hit on say five, six threads they are hurt and then they become very weak and they fall down. So, a very subtle, one thread we can say out of that, comes up to pierce the fontanel bone area. Now this is the structure within us, which does this……..
