This cannot be replaced, even with very in-depth information from the East — our daily life, in any case, takes place in a completely different atmosphere, in a different rhythm. The information from a different culture appeals to a person with completely different psyche and corresponds to a different reality. Therefore, it cannot harmoniously transform us in real time and place.
Please note: that which in India is called Dhyana, in China has become Chan, and in Japan — Zen.
In essence, it amounts to the same thing, but it is clear that these are completely different cultures and psycho types of people. We have the word "meditation." Who can say that the European word "meditation" has any relation with the above-mentioned concept? We have not been taught meditation by a Buddhist apostle (otherwise we would have been a civilization of Buddhism).
My answers are based on the language of the culture and education that we have today. Evolutionary- meditative consciousness (ritual) is not alien to the above mentioned Eastern meditation techniques, and they are not alien to it. This is just another cycle.
I am describing the processes involved in different aspects of kundalini, from the moment of conception to departure from life. [See "The Place, The Role and Purpose of Yoga” located at horausa.com]. And it is the most modern and comprehensible overview. It's not about the evolution of consciousness — it has occurred long ago. Its
outcome is the human himself. It's about taking the next conscious evolutionary step — the one and only way of development for the human. In this world, each species has only one evolutionarily justified path associated with the local habitat, with a whole (species — habitat — whole). For a human this path can only be conscious (see article "Streem” by Master HORA, a ritual– [not translated yet]).
While responding to your question, I have to first open the foundational interconnections of civilizations and natural evolutionary developmental experience within the human. The answers to your questions are based on my personal, practical, mystical experience — my direct, immediate knowledge.
Such knowledge is independent of any human culture or mentality, and it always has been. This knowledge is not taken from books, even the most ancient. In other words, do not look for the confirmation of my words in yoga, because I show, prove, explain the irrational in the language of the rational, which has never been done before by anyone. That is, I know the other side of the mountain, and I am showing this one side. And from this one side of the mountain, the other is not visible (the interconnections, explanations that are accessible to a normal person, not mystics). That is why at the start of the answer it says: we don’t have too much in common. Those aspects of kundalini opened in this article, have never been considered in any yoga.
What I am writing about, yogis will understand and accept, but "craftsmen/knowledgeable ones" are unlikely to do so; they need not a mountain, but a "vacuum" (see above).
On his elbow human has a specific point which if you hit it, there is a sensation of an electric current — as if the hand grows numb. This is familiar to all. As kundalini awakens there is almost the same feeling, only the point of impact is the tailbone, and the feeling of a strong electric shock occurs throughout entire spine, enhanced thousandfold and takes hold entirely over the human. Here, it is similar to the hand example, but the whole body grows numb. It is inconceivable even to imagine the shock of the impact of the cerebro-spinal liquid, which instantly floods the brain. The soul leaves the body and may not come back …
As kundalini rises (in a successful version), the seven centers — both in the spine and in the head open up. These centers can be called the chakras, and the skies (see informational article number 4 by Master HORA – [not translated yet]). If a person is not prepared for it, the consequences would be more than dire ...
